Now I posted a discussion not that long ago which was basically going over the beginning of my journey with Quora, and I've been pretty excited about it
If you didn't see that post, you can view it HERE.
And now I'm back to talk about my new findings
So I've been doing a bit of research on how to pull in the most traffic from Quora and I've found a few things that you can do, and some you should avoid to produce the best results
First: Focus on a main category of Quora and stick with it. Become the authority in the section and post as much as you can. Don't post garbage information because that will just make you look bad. Focus on high quality content and responses in order to get a good amount of views. You never know the search algorithm exactly so put in some quality work and you will be rewarded
Second: Focus on categories that are easier to get into the top 3 most viewed writers of the section. You can see your competition by doing a general search and choosing a category.
You'll see something like this on the top right side of the page (I chose PC Gaming as an example)
Basically you need to get more than 56,829 views on your answers in order to get listed in the top 3. It sounds like a tough thing to do, but it's not really difficult if you invest your time right. Focus on high quality content and the views will come in
Next: DO NOT post your URL in the question if you ask one. It turns into a hyperlink and you're at a higher risk of getting a penalty or getting banned. Keep your account safe and do not do this.
Finally: Edit your profile so that is shows your website URL next to your name on each post. This will get you direct traffic from people doing a copy/paste of the URL. This will help you get some leads if you are selling stuff online
Finally... part 2: Add at least one of your websites to the extended part of your bio so that people can see them. You can make these hyperlinks so that people can click through. I set 2 of my websites in there and one of them is the same one that shows next to my name on each post. This way people will click through to my profile and if they don't want to do the copy/paste they can just click on the link
Hopefully that helps someone with their Quora maketing
