Why You Should Use Quora in Your Digital Marketing Strategy?
You do not get paid for writing the answer in Quora and if you are not getting money, then why would you write an answer to the question?
Here we do not answer the question for payment, we write the answers to the questions so that we get backlinks. But Quora gives you “no follow backlinks”, this backlink doesn’t give much benefit, then why should you still use Quora?
“No follow backlink” and “Do follow backlink” both are essential to rank any website. And Quora is a platform where you can write an answer to a question and generate a backlink.
You should use it because, Quora is a high authority site and has 300 million monthly active users. Which helps you to get direct traffic. If you have a blog or business and want to promote it online, want regular visitors, huge traffic, then Quora will help you to get traffic.
If you use Quora in a genuine way, you will get traffic as well as your authority will build because when you answer someone’s questions. They will trust you, follow you and they will also visit your website. In this way you can promote your business, website or blog.
In research I have found that this is the best way to get more clicks, more views and organic backlinks to your content. You will not receive money directly from Quora but it boosts your online assets, which will drastically increase your revenue.
