Question: How can you drive steady blog traffic through Quora?

 

Answer: Follow these tips.

 

Question: What is Quora?

 

Answer: One of the interwebz most popular Q and A sites.

 

OK; I’m being a wise ass here in Opotoki, New Zealand.

 

Quora is a question and answer site. People from this world – and some, out of this world (space cadets) – ask questions on virtually any topic known to man, child and sea sponge. Community members – known as Quorites (in my eBook, at least) – answer questions based on their knowledge. Or lack thereof.

 

Quora is a powerful traffic-driving tool for generous bloggers. If ya give, ya get, anywhere online.

 

Note my 2,551 answers. Some answers span long form. Other answers turn out short and punchy. My full body of work: generosity. I do not use Quora as much as I visit the site to solve folk’s problems.

 

Da Q sees a sick amount of daily traffic. Inquiring minds want to know…..anything. But you want to answer questions related to your blogging niche to drive interested meat suits to your blog.

 

Follow these tips to driveย  traffic through the Community of Quorites.

 

1: Be Generous

 

Noted already but it requires repeating; generous bloggers generate interest among Quorites. Interested Quorites visit your blog.

 

Answer some questions long form style. Answer other questions short and punchy style.

 

Generously spend 20 to 30 minutes daily – or more – answering people’s questions. Your generosity prospers you because folks draw themselves to generous, helpful, genuine bloggers.

 

2: Hang in Your Niche

 

Not literally.

 

But do spend most time answering questions related to your niche.

 

I focus on the “blogging” section.

 

When you set up your profile indicate what you “Knows About” to the tune of your blogging niche. This populates your home page with the latest pressing questions related to this topic. If folks have questions to ask on this topic and you answer questions on the topic in helpful fashion they will tend to click through to your blog.

 

3: Answer Depth

 

Like the Baby Bear, answer questions “just right.”

 

Some require in-depth answers. Run with it.

 

Other questions demand short, sweet and *to the point* answers.

 

I address users by name or by “Hi” and sign off with my name. Add a personal touch. It matters.

 

Follow this step diligently. Bread and butter step, in terms of blog traffic. Folks seek knowledgeable, generous bloggers willing to help ’em. Increase your exposure. Be helpful. Connect with Quorites. Drive blog traffic.

 

4: Set Up Your Profile Properly

 

On joining the site you’ve a little bio area.

 

Go wild.

 

List your cyber street cred. Stress how you can help folks. Drop a link or 2 to your blog and perhaps business site. I went with my blog link and Amazon link.

 

Quora users click through after reading a few helpful answers posted by your meat suit, gain interest in ya and click to your blog and perhaps business site too.

 

Remember to add a smiling avatar. Be nice. Be memorable. Be a person; not just a profile.

 

5: Persistence Combined with Generosity Wins

 

After taking months off from Quora I still answered 2,551 questions on the site. That’s persistence right there.

 

Sans my Quora break I worked the network for many months, persistently offering value, being generous and intending to help as many bloggers as possible.

 

Per usual, most bloggers do a terrible job on Quora because their main intent is to get traffic, not to generously solve problems. I get your end game – you did click on this post link grubbing for blog traffic – but traffic flows to bloggers focused mainly on helping people in genuine fashion over the long haul.

 

As of this writing I’ve 183,600 views on my Quora answers. I’m guessing at least one of those people visited Blogging From Paradise

 

Do you answer questions on Quora?

 

Do you dig the website?

    2551? That’s not just persistence, that’s commitment. I feel commitment is something that’s similar to persistence but also in subtle ways, distinct from it. Anybody can be persistent. Somebody answering a couple hundred questions in the span of a few months would be persistent. Answering a thousand would be persistent.

    But at some point, that persistence transforms into commitment. You’re not just doing it because you’re determined to persist through the ordeal. You’re doing it because you’re committed to a goal and to the results it will bring. That’s my take.

    A commitment to persistence and generosity.

      I like that George. Commitment. I dig that concept. Being committed to persistence and generosity positions you as a leader in any niche online or offline.

    Hey Ryan,

    Wow Quora, 3rd article I find in 3 days, Is it calling me?

    I agree with everything you said. Yet, I dont give Quora as much time as I could, mostly because I chose Pinterest Way back. I am a very visual person and I can give in so many ways without spending a ton of time!even though others say Pinterest draws them down rabbit holes.

    for me Quora does that to me, I can spend hours answering Qns and unlike you I dont stay in my niche, I literally spread out lol. So maybe I should stick to my niche and give it another go.

    That said, I totally respect your style as its all about knowing what you want, and Stepping up as a servant leader. Keep doing My friend! And enjoy New Zealand! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Easter

    Brilliant suggestion. Why did I not think of this before? I am a subscriber to the belief that if you help enough people you will benefit in the long run. Of course it has to be genuine. A fake giver doesn’t last. So I’ll be reactivating my dormant Quora account.

      Neat how you say this Keith ๐Ÿ˜‰ I was in the same boat. For a minute. Stunned at how I hadn’t thought of helping folks and driving traffic through this platform. Happy Quora-ing.
