    Title – Growth Market @ your brand name
    Description– should be catchy which clearly related to your brand/product

  8. 8. Use images in between your answer. This helps to create engagement.
  9. 9. Use proper hyperlinks, which helps the user to find the right information. If you are answering any question that is related to your product, you can specify the link of your product in between the answer.
  10. 10. You can use “Anchor text” based link as a well normal link, it all depends on your choice. But, personally, I like the “Anchor Text” link.
  11. 11. To track every single traffic, you can use “UTM Source.” Otherwise, Google analytics track all the traffic from Quora under “Direct.”
    Here, how you can use UTM code

    If you use “utm_source=quora” all the traffic will be reported under “Other->quora” of Google Analytics and you can track the number of traffic you are generating from Quora.

My experience with Quora

I would like to share my personal experience of using Quora to generate traffic for one of my client. At the beginning, the traffic from Quora was zero. By following the “Quora question and answering effective practices” as specified above we generated 463+ traffic on a monthly basis by just answering 50 questions.

Below is the print screen of the “Google Analytics Traffic” overview generated from Quora question and answering website –
