In today’s post, I want to talk about another excellent way to get traffic to your website. As I’m sure you know, the more traffic you get, the more likely you are to have conversions and thus make more money.
Although there are many different ways to get traffic, I always suggest picking 2-3 reliable ones to get started and once you have mastered those, you can start slowly adding more.
So if you are wondering how to get more traffic for your website, this just might be a good strategy to try out.
The strategy I want to talk about today is using Quora.com to get more traffic.
What is Quora?
Quora is a question and answer platform where people can ask questions and others can submit answers to those questions. Questions are asked within categories and people who have knowledge of those categories can answer.
Categories include topics such as…
- YouTube Videos
- Affiliate Marketing
- Etc, Etc, Etc
Literally ANYTHING you can think of is a “topic” in Quora. So if you have knowledge in a specific niche, you will be able to answer other people’s questions and point them towards your website or other links.
This is how you will gain traffic through the use of Quora. By answering questions that others have and also utilizing the other areas within Quora that allow you to place links. Keep reading to find out exactly where you can place your website links.
It is free to sign up at Quora and begin answering questions. Once you sign up, you can fill out your profile area and let people know what you are an expert in.
Utilizing the Profile Area
When it comes to getting traffic, you want to attract people who are interested in your particular niche. This leads to more conversions if you are helping people who are actively searching for an answer to a question. So be sure to utilize the profile area of Quora.
Within the profile area you can give a brief description of yourself and how you can help others. Also include any education, training, and any other relevant information.
This is a great place to add a link to all your Social Media…
- YouTube Channel
How to Answer Questions and Add Links
When you fill out your profile area, you will be asked about what subjects you know about. Then when people have questions in that subject, you will be notified at the top of the Quora page.
Once you find a question that you want to answer, you simply click “answer” and a text box will appear where you can write, format and add links.
It is important to be thorough in your answers because those are the ones that tend to get “upvoted” and stay at the top. Therefore you will get more exposure as others come to that question to see the answers.
If you are looking to get traffic with this method, you will definitely want to add links to your website and specifically to a post or page that pertains to the question being asked.
Always remember to add value and provide links only if they will help in answering the question more fully. Don’t spam your links within Quora because no one likes that and you will eventually be known as a spammer.
To add a link to your text, simply highlight the words you want linked and then click the “link” button at the top right of the answer box (or hit CTRL+K). Insert the link to the page you want and then click “add”. This will add your link to the text.
You can also add pictures and graphics to your answers, however I would only advise doing this if it helps clarify the answer. I don’t usually add pictures to make it more appealing looking…… save that for your website. People just want answers on Quora and can get turned off by too many pics.
Proof of Views and Exposure
Answering other people’s questions is a great way to get more traffic. I’ve been using Quora for a little while now and I’ve already seen a huge increase in traffic because of the exposure I’ve gotten on the platform.
Some people click on the links in the answers, while others visit my Quora profile and click to my website from there. Either way, I’m getting more traffic and it’s generally from people who are searching for help… this means that they tend to convert much higher.
Here’s a look at my stats from Quora over the last 30 days.
Final Thoughts on Traffic and Quora
Quora is one of the best ways to get targeted traffic because it is free and your answers (links) stay on the site forever…. so the more you answer, the more exposure you will get and the more recurring traffic you can generate for the future.
Like I mentioned before, I always recommend finding 2-3 ways to generate traffic and spend some time mastering those and then slowly add more over time. The time that you spend getting this traffic will pay off for years to come.
