I don’t need more website traffic … said anyone EVER!
Quora is a little known secret traffic source that has the power to drive serious visitors to your websites if used correctly.
Check out my other post on how to set up your Quora profile for maximum exposure here.
Now it’s time to start cranking out some traffic from it.
Let’s take a loot at some statistics from Quora.
As you can see I’ve only started using this source since April and received 17 thousand views.
If you answer popular questions you can get a lot of views which will eventually turn into website visitors.
Time to take action!
The first thing you want to do is start to follow topics that are related to your niche.
From the Quora homepage use the search bar to enter keywords. As you enter your search terms notice the “Topic” in the drop down.
Click on the Topic and you will be taken to the topic page. Click the follow button at the top of the page.
You want to follow topics that have thousands of followers. This way when you post your answer, you will get a lot of views.
Members of the topic group will be notified that there is a new answer to the question.
Really good questions will get thousands of views.
By creating really good answers you can generate more free targeted website traffic.
When you provide good value, Quora members will click on your profile leading to your website.
How Do I Create A Good Answer?
When you come a cross a great question that you want to answer you will want to create a blog post first.
Write a compelling blog post that will completely answer the communities question.
Then, go back to Quora and post an answer without giving away the secret sauce.
Put together a few key points from your post that will help the community.
Be sure to add a few images as answers with images seem to get more views.
Then close off your answer with something like:
“I have a complete tutorial on my blog about doing this. If you’s like to take a look at that or have any other questions that I haven’t answered in the post I’d be more than happy to help you out.”
Your first action should always be to provide value to the community.
DO NOT always put your link in the answer. Quora doesn’t like that, but you can drop it in when the time is right.
You will get clicks through to your website as people visit your profile to learn more about you.
Now, make sure to repurpose that blog post as many ways as you can. Post to Facebook, Twitter, Make a video, etc.
Getting Upvotes On Your Answers
Upvotes are the same as “Likes” on other platforms.
The more Upvotes your answer gets, pushes it to the top of the page.
The better your answer, the more Upvotes you will get. The more your links will be seen by the community.
A little “Greyhat” method to get Upvotes, is to join exchange groups.
These groups can be found mainly on Facebook.
Save For Later
As you come across good questions you want to answer. You can save these to your “Answer Later” box.
Once you have researched and created your blog post. You can come back and post your answer.
As you start answering more questions you will get “Answer Requests” from users sent to you for your feedback.
Be A Most Viewed Writer
You should make a goal to become a most viewed writer.
These writers are viewed as an authority in the community and by default, get more website traffic if they have a profile leading to their website.
Take a look inside your niche topics and you will find the most viewed writers.
Take a look at all the topics you follow. Find topics where the top writers have lower view counts.
By having a low view count, you can break into the top 10 as you write awesome engaging answers.
You must continue to post to Quora consistently to get into the most viewed writes and stay there.
Once you make it here, you will be the authority voice and people will come to you for answers.
How Do You Get Views
Once you post your new answer to Quora you want to announce it to your following.
Email your list if you have one.
Post to Facebook that you have just answered a question on Quora.
Tweet it our on Twitter. This has worked really well for me.
Can You Outsource This?
Just like everything else it is possible to outsource your Quora marketing strategy.
If you have a virtual assistant you can have them search Quora for soldi questions for you to answer and save them.
They can research the content for your blog post and even write the post.
You can then write your Quora answer in YOUR voice from their content.
You VA will also know some Quora Upvote groups to help with rankings 🙂
Stuff to Remember
- One answer will not get you a ton of website traffic. It takes multiple answers to get real traffic
- Each post is like an “AD” for your business. The more you post, the more website traffic you will get.
- Answer more questions WITHOUT your link thank you do with your links.
- Include images in your answers. These tend to get more Upvotes and views.
It’s now time for you to take action. Head over to Quora and start making some noise.
