We would like to share some of the most useful and game changing strategies that work awesome to improve website traffic using Quora. From last couple of years, most of the marketing professionals have been using this platform to generate organic traffic to their website/app.

It has been found that Quora seems to be the most useful platform to generate huge traffic for small to big brands.

Are you using Quora in the right way? Are you able to track Quora traffic?

By default Google Analytics tracks the Quora traffic under ‘Social’’ and ‘Direct’. Most of the time it seems to be very challenging to track every single session. It can be possible by using the right “utm_source” in the URL.

Let’s explore the most effective strategies to generate traffic

  1. Don’t make fake profile, always create account using real name
  2. Always create a catchy profile with the links in the author’s bio and it should be pointing to your website/app

    Example –
    Title – Growth Market @ your brand name

  3. Description– should be catchy and define your expertise specific to domain you are targeting

  4. Upload the real image by following the Quora policy
  5. Start following people in your domain, who have good follower
  6. Choose the questions that are related to your products/services/offering/interest
  7. Before answering any question, evaluate it based on the number of followers
  8. Before start writing check the answer written by other and their upvotes and views
  9. Your answer should be descriptive and should be well formatted
  10. Use images in your answer to make it more appealing and engaging for viewer
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. To track every single traffic, you can use “utm_source.”
    If you use “utm_source=quora” all the traffic will be reported under “Other->quora” of Google Analytics and you can track all Quora generated traffic
