Free Targeted Traffic Source –

Now, before you start clicking away and telling me you already know, I want you to give me some few more minutes and read what I have written below.

Quora, one of the tools to increase website traffic, has grown from a simple Question and Answer platform to a real business weapon. Launched in 2009, this platform is reported to have over 100 million monthly visits.

Ranked number 81 worldwide by Alexa, more than 50% of Quora’s traffic comes from Search Engines with as leader.

Three ways to pull free targeted traffic on Quora

It’s important to note that Quora has many more ways it can be useful including asking questions, creating articles, etc. But here are three ways you should use it for targeted traffic.

A) Ask question as Anonymous

You can always ask questions and get answers almost in any topic. But if you want to draw attention to your content, ask a question about it andΒ check the ‘anonymous’ option so no one knows who is behind the question.

For instance, if you are promoting Affiliate Marketing For Bloggers, you could ask a question about the book and drop your review link.

NB: For best results, write a review about the product you want to promote and drive traffic to it. Avoid dropping affiliate links on quora. This will attract serious sanctions.

free traffic source

Note that by checking the ‘Go Anonymous’ option, you only hide your identity from anyone that finds your content. Quora admin however will know who is behind anonymous questions and answers so you have to avoid being promotional and spammy.

Anonymous contentsΒ won’t show up in homepage feeds of your followers but they are still able to pull in a lot of traffic from local searches on Quora and searches on Google. In less than 1 hour of posting this question, it got almost 300 views:

targeted traffic quora

Once you publish your question, quora allows you to ask 15 people to answer. With this feature, you can instantly reach 15 people after publishing;

quora ask 15 people to answer

Shortly after I posted the question, an answer came from Willie Prevolt, someone you may want to check and follow. Quora has an interesting inbuilt viral traffic generator. What happens is that your question shows up on the home page of everyone that answers it.

willie quora

You see in the answer above, Willie mentioned the price. This is an element I didn’t mention in the question. That shows Willie followed the link and read the sales page and according to him, “… $27 is a nice investment to get started with …”

-> Note about asking anonymously!

Asking questions or providing answers in anonymity is not something you should do strongly on Quora. This reduces your chances of building a solid presence and may expose you to sanctions if misused.

I understand thatΒ sometimes your question is so sensitive that you don’t dare post as yourself for fear a family member/friend/coworker/significant other/religious leader etc. might see it, but this should be used sparingly and only for topics of extreme personal importance and delicacy. Don’t do it just to spam the boards.

B) Answer Questions

The best way to pull free targeted traffic legitimately from Quora is provide valuable answers to questions.

Like I mentioned above, people ask questions just in any topic so you can help them by providing the answers they need.

Links in answers are allowed on Quora provided they are not affiliates. They should be highly relevant and resourceful too.

Head over to quora and run a search…

how do bloggers make money

Pick a question that’s targeted, provide an interesting answer!

question on quora

Three minutes after answering the question, it got 29 views (Blue arrows above) and you notice how I provided links to my posts in a blended and helpful manner (Red arrows above)

Some questions already have tens of answers and sometimes you may fear that your answer will be pushed down the queue. On Quora, it’s not really the role of first come, first served. If your answer has more length and value, Quora will measure and put it above others. So it’s important to always take your time to answer questions.

C) Collaborate with Friends

If you have friends who are on Quora, they can help you get more exposure. Simply, arrange with them to post meaningful questions that will allow you answer them with content and promote your product.

For instance, you may arrange with a friend to ask something like “What are the best Affiliate Marketing Ebooks for bloggers?

That will allow you to write meaningful answer and link to your review of Affiliate Marketing For bloggers.

Quora drives your traffic from Search Engines

I mentioned above that Quora gets a lot of traffic from search engines. If you are attentive enough, you’ll begin to notice that more and more Quora urls are appearing on Google page one.

quora and seo

The simple fact is, those who get the benefit from this natural exposure are those who create the content. Traffic is directed to questions and if you do well, you should get a lot of this.

Tips to get more Targeted website traffic from Quora

Let me throw in some more tips to help you get more Website traffic from this platform.

Use keywords in your questions and answers. This will help your contributions indexed and shown in search engine results.

We knowΒ  conversion rates for natural traffic are high. So obviously, using keywords in your text definitely boost your targeted website traffic and make your online businesses more profitable.

So do not neglect Keyword research when trying to use Quora to increase web traffic. Focus on long tail keywords to maximize your search engine rankings.

While Quora helps in referral traffic, it’s a huge boost to your organic traffic

  2. Hi Enstine,
    Good to be here again.
    Hey, I have been a member at Quora since almost from the time of my Knol page writing.
    Though i have been a member since many years, i never thought of this as a traffic source.
    Now i feel that its indeed a wonderful place to draw traffic to our page.
    As in any case or let me put it this way, unless and until you are an active member in any community of such places you can’t expect the result.
    The points mentioned in this post is worth noting and to apply.
    Thanks for sharing Enstine

    May you have a great weekend

    • Hi Phil,
      You are right! You need to be active on any community to see results.

      Thanks for the input sir πŸ˜‰

  3. Nice on Enstine, I’m following all your foot steps. I will try to implement this methods and see which one works best for me

  4. This is an eye opener for me. I am glad you could put up this piece, i have been struggling to get traffic to my new health niche blog. I hope to get more traffic from quora when i implement all you have pointed out here. Thank You Enstine

  5. i usually answer to questions on quora on topics that i have written posts on. I do for making some backlinks but haven’t received any visitors till now (although my links are highly relative and has answer to the questions). Going to give some more time to quora following your guides.

  6. Hi Enstine,
    I’m so glad you wrote about this topic. I’ve been thinking about using Quora for a while but like a lot of things I got distracted and put the topic into the too hard basket.
    But you explain it so well here that my interest has been re-kindled.
    This weekend I’ll get started!
    Thanks so much Enstine

    • Hi Kim,

  7. Hi Enstine,

    I have been wondering how to use Quora and I’ve heard some great things about it. From the way you expressed it in this article, it seems like a great way to find those who have problems as it relates to our target audiences.

    I’m going to jump on today and start experimenting with this tool.

    I appreciate your insights and thanks so much for sharing Enstine!

    • Hey Don,
      Though I’m late on this reply,I knew I’ll get to it πŸ˜‰

      A lot of stuffs offline keeping me busy plus poor Internet connection

      Meanwhile, thanks for making it again on this blog. I’m sure if you get a little active on Quora, you are going to see quite impressive results.

      The traffic of course will be targeted so good luck on the platform, buddy πŸ˜‰

  8. Hi Enstine,

    I have already purchased your book and I would say this is the best book on affiliate marketing. You have shared a lot of really working techniques that other affiliate marketers don’t share even in there paid eBooks.

    I also read Harsh Agrawal’s eBook on affiliate marketing, to be very frank that was just very basic info about the subject. But you’ve created something that really worth it value, and any blogger can generate ten times of spent money it he takes action.

    Waiting for co-branded page for my readers!

    All the best,

    Subha Sadiq

    • Thanks for the purchase and for dropping this sincere comment
      Yes I’m working on your co-branded page and that should be complete this week

      Sorry for the delay due to too much stuffs offline, many branded pages and disturbing Internet connection lately πŸ˜‰

      Expect back from me this week

  9. Hello Enstine,

    What a truly fascinating case study post. Although I was aware of Quora I had simply considered it another site similar to Yahoo Answers and never gave enough consideration to the potential it has for highly targeted traffic.

    Even if I had thought about it, without your superb case study presented in this post, without doubt, I would have missed making the most of this opportunity. Any site with more than 100 million monthly visits simply cannot be ignored if you’re seeking free traffic potential.

    Another superb share Enstine – I’ll definitely be following your lead here mate. Many thanks

    Best wishes from a remote Thai village blogger


    • Hi Peter,
      Good to see you here and thanks for the comment.
      I have been late on this reply because of some offline stuffs.

      Meanwhile, I hope you are having a great week. Did you give the platform a try?

      • Hello Enstine,

        I just came back to this post to tell you I couldn’t go ahead with your affiliate option as Deal Guardian does not allow me to purchase from you.

        I remember some time ago having a problem with them re an over-payment and they have probably “black-balled” me from future business dealings.

        Sorry about that but I still follow your blog posts with interest and enthusiasm

        Best wishes from the remote Thai village blogger


  10. Hey Enstine, It’s such an smarter way to drive targeted traffic from quora. Your experiments are very good with Quora. I also do the same to drive traffic to my blog posts. Asking questions related to your product in an indirect way to have visitors..

    Good going bro…

    Thumbs up!!!

  11. What a beautifully detailed and easily followed plan Enstine, thank you.

    I haven’t used Quora, but you have completely enlightened me as to its potential!!

    Promoting Affiliate products can be hard unless you have a real strategy and we are blessed you have shared yours with us here today, such valuable information πŸ˜€

      It’s an exciting thing to read your comment on my blog again πŸ˜‰
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I’m sure you’ll see some interesting results being active on Quora.

      Good luck and do have a wonderful weekend

  12. Hi Enstine,

    I’ve taken a look at Quora and found it to be quite interesting. It really has grown a lot over the past year. I see more people using it and asking any questions that come to mind. There is always someone there to answer who has professional insight. I never thought of it as a traffic source. I could see the anonymous option being a loophole for spam though. I’m sure people will take advantage of that unfortunately. I’ll have to give it another look.

    Thanks for sharing,

    • Hey Lillian,
      Thanks for sharing your comment.

      I’m sure the admin guys are watching the anonymous option so closely. that’s why I recommend not using it so often and being so cautious with it too. Once they notice someone is not using it correctly, there are certainly going to be sanctions.

      Thanks for your contribution so do have a wonderful weekend

  13. Hi Enstine,
    I have heard of Quora as most but never knew to much about it.
    Thanks for informing me on the many uses of Quora.
    Quora drives your traffic from Search Engines? I was not aware of that.
    ” Quora gets a lot of traffic from search engines. If you are attentive enough, you’ll begin to notice that more and more Quora urls are appearing on Google page one.” Will go and check this out for sure. Thanks.

    • Hi Kathryn,
      So good to have you hear and thanks for the comment.

      I’m sure you are going to see more positive results being active on the platform.

  14. Hi,

    Very detailed post and nice case studies shared. I did used quora and its a nice platform to learn lot of new things. Will surely try your tips.

  15. Never thought to ask a question about Miche on Quora! Brilliant! I am going to work on that today!!! Thanks for sharing!

  16. I knew about Quora, as many others do, but I am guilty of not following things up with it. Great information here Enstine. I’ll be doing more with this for sure!

    • Hey Barrie,

  18. Enstine,

    I have never used Quora. May have heard of it before but it is one more thing to do when you are already involved with many different activites. I will have to check it out and see how it would work for me. You certainly explained the process clearly.

    • Hi doctor,
      Good to see you here and thanks for the contribution.

      Working a few minutes or hours on Quora daily will certainly generate some results. Give it a try and possibly share your results.

      Do have a wonderful weekend

  19. Great tips, I have a site with an average of 100,000 visits per month and is growing every day, and much of the information found in this blog.Obrigado for sharing your ideas.

  20. Hi Enstine,
    Great tips on how to get more targeted traffic! I will have to revisit a few of them especially Quora πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing these valuable resources!

  21. Hello bro,

    Quora is a good way to drive reasonable amount of traffic to any blog in any niche… I do use the platform to drive traffic to my blog years back till they ordered me to change my name for no reason πŸ˜‰

    Your post is nice and will be beneficial for bloggers who don’t know this way of driving traffic.

    Good to know it’s working for you fine… have a good day ahead

    • Hey bro,
      That was some crazy thing they did! They didn’t give you a reasonable reason so that sounds weird πŸ˜‰

      However, thanks for sharing your thoughts on this post. Do have a wonderful weekend

  22. Hi Enstine

    A very informative post indeed. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful ideas to draw traffic on our blog. will definitely try some of them.

    Havea nice day!

  23. Hi Enstine,

    Thanks for explaining these additional ways to use Quora.

    As you mentioned I HAD used it before, a very long time ago, but not very efficiently! I’ll try again using the ideas you suggest.

    Thanks πŸ™‚

    • Hey Joy,
      I’m sure if you get a bit more consistent on it, you’ll see remarkable improvement in traffic with time πŸ˜‰

  24. Thank You So Much for sharing superb knowledge about targeted traffic sources, basically I have made a link to the different website on my website but my website does not increase traffic at this time, but I have followed on your different article and got more benefits. So, I hope these ways are working on as well. I Thankful to you Enstine Muki

    • Thanks for taking time to share your feedback Asif and I’m glad to hear things are beginning to work for you.

      Just be a little more active on Quora and you’ll see more positive results πŸ˜‰

  25. Hi Enstine,

    Thank you for sharing another constructive post. I totally agree with you that Quora is the free and instant way to drive more traffic to our websites. I already know this platform but busy in Yahoo answers this is also a great way to get free traffic. In fact very soon i got level 3 in Yahoo answers.

    Thanks for the fantastic share once again πŸ™‚



    • Congrats on doing well with Yahoo answers bro. By the time you start giving time to quora, I’m sure you are going to see more results.

      Do have a wonderful month of February πŸ˜‰

  26. Hi Enstine ,

    I am already there on Quora and getting goof traffic from same. But you have covered this topic very professionally . Keep writing buddy.

  27. Hi Enstine bro!

    Yes, i was thinking what could be πŸ˜€ And, yes it’s proven that Quora drive targeted traffic! Really, i was not too much aware about using Quora for driving traffic to my site. But i came across to it and found very helpful to get good and very targeted traffic.

    Anyway, thanks a lot for sharing this informative post with us.
    And, keep sharing more post like this one πŸ˜€

    Happy blogging.

  28. I’ve always known that question and answer websites work well, when it comes to driving traffic. I’ve successfully used some FAQ sites but I’ve got no experience with Quora. Will try this tip. Thanks for the share!

  29. Hey Enstine,

    I have to agree with you. I started using Quora a couple of months ago and this has helped to boost up my traffic a bit.

    I didn’t use it for about a month and I did lose traffic, despite the fact I still promoted my blog on other sites. But I’m going to get back into the game.

    This is also a great way to promote you book. I still have to get your book since affiliate marketing is my main focus.

    Thanks for sharing Enstine! Have a good one!

    • Hey Sherman,
      Thanks for showing up with a comment.
      The beauty with Quora is that if your questions get indexed and well placed on SERPs, you can always get traffic even when you are less busy on it.

      Afterall, the more active you are, the more results πŸ˜‰

      Thanks for being part of the journey man

  30. Hi Enstine,

    Wonderful traffic getting suggestion here. And you spelled it out perfectly with screen caps that leave little the imagination πŸ™‚

    The hard part… you’ve got to do it. I think you’re spot on that we’ve all heard about Quora, and we all “know about” it and … hey… stop there… gotta start putting it into action.

    If anyone didn’t know how to do that, you’ve given the marching orders. Kudos, my friend on more great marketing magic. I’ve gotta check out that co-branded book over on Deal Guardian.



    • Hi Donna,
      So good to see you here again and thanks for the boosting comment.
      A lot of people know about this platform but few are using it to their advantage so I thought a quick note on about my experience can help many who will take the time to read and take action.

      Take a look at my product and let me know about co-branding your page.

      do have a wonderful week ahead πŸ˜‰

  31. Hi Enstine

    Quora is the best platform to raise the question and get many solutions. Just started with Quora a few days before. It is really the best source for getting the traffic. This post is really very informative. Thanks for sharing.

  32. Hello Enstine,

    You are right about Quora being a great source of traffic if used smartly. The best part about Quora is that it is a Questions & Answers database which means that people are looking for answers all the time.

    If one can deliver that smartly through a blog post or an article on his/her website/blog, then he/she can fetch good load of traffic without much hassle.

    I will definitely try it out.


  33. Hi Enstine,

    I’ve heard of Quora but have never looked at it. I will be taking a closer look. Sounds like a great way to gain traffic and quite possibly reach a whole new audience.

    A little off topic but I wanted to let you know that I am slowly working my way through your book AMB and just from two tips in your book, I can see an approximate increase of 125 visits to my site yesterday.

    Thanks for everything. Now on to check Quora out.

    • Hi Monna,
      I know a few hours on quora per day, you’ll find more results πŸ˜‰

      thanks for sharing your experience about reading and applying what’s in the book. I’m really encouraged πŸ˜‰

  34. I too signed up with Quora years ago but rarely visit it. I hadn’t considered the ways you mention to drive traffic and sales.

    If you can’t post affiliate links would you link to a landing page or blog post you’ve written that does have the affiliate link in it?

    Thanks Enstine, it’s always good to read about new free traffic sources.

    • Hey Sue,
      Quora is traffic goldmine
      Yes you can post links to blog posts and landing pages but more emphasis is laid on adding quality to the platform.

      The best way is to do a product review on your blog then drive traffic to it from quora. It should convert better πŸ˜‰

      Thanks for being part of my community πŸ˜‰

      • Thanks for your answer Enstine. I’ve visited Quora a couple of times since you posted this to work out where and how I can contribute. It’s certainly a popular site.

  35. Hi Enstine

    Quora have been my best source of traffic, I love the website because if its question and answers function which makes it easier for one get a sweet backlink.

    Thank You Sir

    • Hey Erika,
      Thanks for sharing your point. I’m glad you are learning something from this post. Go do some work on the platform and expect clicks and traffic πŸ˜‰

  36. Good Morning Enstine and Welcome to a new week.. And the last one to month at that LOL
    Like Lisa has stated below I to have signed up years ago on Quora and really had no idea on how to use it, so your post here was very helpful.
    I am heading on vacation the end of the week but will take down some notes to revisit this site staring next month when I get home.
    Great share my friend
    Chery :))

    • Hey Chery,
      As I reply to this post, it’s good evening πŸ˜‰

      Please share your experience after revisiting and carrying out some activities. Hope you bring back some “freshies” from vacation πŸ˜‰

  37. Hi Enstine,

    Even though I’m in a writers group at Quora, glad I read this post. I’d never really considered the site for anything other than an information source.

    Interesting traffic strategy. Thank you,

  38. Thanks Enstine for this one and the reminder. I had signed up years ago on Quora and haven’t used it in probably a year or more. Wow. huh? I didn’t realize how much you could do using Quora or how to drive traffic back to your blog from this website. I will have to revisit this one today, thanks again Enstine and have a great new week!

    • Hey Lisa,
      Quora is traffic gold mine. A little time on it helping people, you get traffic. Let me know if there is something you want to answer and draw traffic to your post. I’ll ask a question about it πŸ˜‰

  39. Reminds me so much about Yahoo Answers, I tried it years back, it works too but some how, i think This one looks more juicy if done very well. I may have to give it a shot, thanks for this post Mr. Enstine πŸ™‚

  40. Thanks for the heads up about Quora Enstine. I’ve heard of the site but didn’t know that you could drive traffic from it. I’ve just been there and find that I have already signed up so I’ve just answered a question. I could not have looked at it properly before or maybe I meant to go back and take a closer look. I will definitely go back now and use it.

    • Hey Sandy,
      Quora is definitely worth your time. Answer questions and link back to your blog. You’ll surely see positive results πŸ˜‰

      I hope you are set for a wonderful week ahead

  41. Hi Enstine,

    I never knew Quora was this awesome! All i knew about it was just the Q&A stuff. I am heading to grab my affiliate link right away…Thanks so much for this!

  42. Heard about Quora before, but you just add another dimension into how to use it
    Think I will try to give it a try now the way you mentioned


  43. Whoa! Quora’s a traffic goldmine.

    I had no idea about their anonymous feature. I’ll have to try that. In fact, I’ll put it on today’s to-do list. πŸ˜€

    I have done the answering questions before. Not much though. Maybe twice. But I remember seeing 2 digits beside in my analytics.

    (Note to self: GET ON QUORA!)

    Anyway, I really liked the post, Enstine.


    • Good to see you here Julian and thanks for taking the time to drop a comment πŸ˜‰
      I’m glad you got something new from this post. I’ll like to discuss a few more things with you πŸ˜‰

  44. Hi Muki,
    This article is truly an Exclusive piece for free traffic. I use Quora occasionally for driving traffic. Good part about it’s traffic is it’s targeted and bounce rate is low comparing to other referral traffic sources.
    However, I never tried to promote affiliate product via this Q/A site. Thanks for explaining the Quora strategy. It will definitely help the newbies.

    Have a nice day man!
    -MSI Sakib

    • Hey Sakib,
      You are right about Quora driving targeted traffic and one can really convert it to buying visitors. The low bounce rate attest to its traffic being supper relevant.

      Thanks for adding to this post. I do hope you have a wonderful week

  45. Hi Enstine,
    Firstly this is really a good post and you are right that most of the people doesn’t read the full post, thinking that they know already what they are reading. But the only think is that they miss lots of important points.
    And about, one of the best site to get a lot more extra traffic. And i must tell you that quora has worked for me always, and my analytic is the proof for that.

    Thanks for sharing this Post.
