How To Use Quora For Blogging

What is Quora.com for

Quora is a website where you can ask questions and receive answers by other people online.

Example:
You can ask a question on “how to increase traffic to your website”
And you might receive answers from other people from around the world. 

What is Quora about

Quora is, as I just said, a website where you can ask pretty much any question and you will receive and answer by someone interested in the same thing, or perhaps someone else who is interested to know the answer. People can publish articles on different subjects and they also help each other out by answering a variety of questions, within their knowledge base.

how to research for content

Quora is also a great way to research content. You can find out what questions people are asking and from there you can form an article within your website answering that question. 

When you search into the different categories you will be able to see what people need help with, from there you can research keywords and create a first page article based on those statistics. 

 

how to use Quora for website traffic

You need to select categories that are related to your niche. When there are new questions within those categories you can receive a notification letting you know that someone needs help within your niche. 
When you answer questions, you can also let people know that you have written an article, answering this particular question etc. You do not want to spam tho, very important. You want to build a  following based on your knowledge and from there people will find their way to your website.

Within your profile you can also add information about yourself and the fact that you have a website dedicated to this particular Niche.

When you write answers that people benefit from and find helpful you might also get voted up to the top as well as getting shared. What better way to gain traffic than for writing helpful content.

You can also take advantage of Quora ads. This will put your ad within relative content. It might show up as an answer to a relevant question. Which will also allow for people to see you and find your website.

Does Quora work

Yes, but as with everything you need to dedicate some time to it. You cannot expect to gain traffic or a following if you do not contribute content to it. You receive what you are willing to give. This is my statistics from the last month by using Quora and as you can see I have had over 700 views and 2 people have voted my reply to a question as beneficial and helpful.

Final Thoughts

Quora can be a great way to allow for people to find you and find your website. If you write answers that people find helpful then you will increase your chances of people following you and sharing your content.

    1. Hi Benny,

      Thank you, Yes driving traffic is different, if you follow the steps and take advantage of these tips then you will surely get traffic. Just remember that it can take a little bit of time so do not be discouraged. 

  3. Thank you for this fantastic article! 

    I never thought to use Quora as a potential way to increase your traffic but thanks to your article I will consider it for sure! 

    The article is very helpful but I have some questions, Is Quora in multiple languages or only English? 

    Thank you again for this great article. 

    1. Hi Veronica,

      I am happy to help. 
      Quora comes in multiple languages. So I have one for English and one for Swedish. You can change the language as you go and have them under the same user.

  4. Many of my friends have suggested Quora to me that I should utilize it for my blog. However, I heard mixed messages that it is irrelevant now because all the bloggers just go there to advertise their site mostly. But, you brought up an interesting point that I can do research my content on Quora, never thought of that! That is genius actually better than google search. I guess I am just going to have to give it a try and be patient with Quora like you mentioned.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Nuttanee,

      Yes, it is an excellent way of doing research. 
      Give it a try and let me know how you go.

  5. Good to know that Quora is useful for researching content in addition to asking questions. I think it’s a great idea to ask questions and then answer them through an article. After all, this is the idea behind creating helpful content. It’s good to know that Quora is tried and true and as with anything legit will take time to become successful. Wealthy Affiliate is another tried and true platform that takes some effort, but in the end worth it. Thanks for a great recommendation in Quora!

It came at the right time for me – I found out that I should use Quora in order to drive traffic to my blog, but was stuck at the ‘’how’’ step. You gave me confirmation I needed to give it a try and a way of approaching it. I did not know there is a possibility to have ad too.

    Thank you for this and maybe we ‘’see’’ each other on Quora! 😊
