Another benefit of this traffic is that major visitors are from top tier 1 countries such as US, UK, Germany, England and the rest.

See the traffic source country I was talking about. Everything from Google analytic.

The whole process here today will be how to drive traffic to your new blog using Q&A website.

Q&A website means a website where people ask questions and expect users or visitors to provide an answer to their questions. The best answer takes the lead with either like, upvotes, or shares.

There are so many Q&A websites to drive traffic to a new blog. And specifically in this article, I will share a complete guide on how to drive traffic to your blog [new or old] using Quora Q&A website.

Up to this moment, my answers on Quora have received over a million [1,000,000] page views and the counting continues and I have answered over 200 answers on Quora.

How to Drive Minimum of 2000 Visitors to your Blog Daily

Here is the step by step procedure I followed to drive massive traffic to my blog using Quora Q&A website. All you need to do is follow the steps below to duplicate my strategy and drive as many as possible traffic to your blog.

Fire up a browser and visit Quora to create an account. If you have an account with Quora before now you can just skip this step. To ease yourself of the stress you can sign using your Gmail account or directly with your Facebook account. After that select your interest and lets Quora build your dashboard for the first time.

1. The moment you log to your Quora account you will see series of questions and answers by Quoran users. So how do you make use of this opportunity to drive traffic to your blog? Just continue reading you will get every gist you need to do the right thing.

Quora will start showing questions based on your interest on your Quora account page. You can read others answer to a question and choose to write a better answer. But how to do know the best post to answer on Quora so that you will be able to drive more traffic to your blog?

2. Open a new browser and visit Google search engine. Type in your current post keyword on Google and add Quora at the end. This is exactly what I am saying [Blog traffic Quora] and hit the enter key on your computer keyboard. This will show all questions that have been asked on Quora that are related to your query.

3. Click on any of the results above. Here is where the work lies. You don’t answer questions that won’t yield a result at the end. Now, you need to look for questions with a minimum of 12 followers. There are questions with 2.5k followers on Quora.  Once you have gotten a question with a minimum of 12 followers then you are half done.

4. Now it’s time to answer the question and drive traffic to your own blog answering the question. Click on “Answer” button and write your own answer and link to relevant page on your blog. Do not copy your own post and other blog post and if you post copy your own post makes sure you understand Quora rules of answering a question so that your account will not be suspended and could be terminated if found spamming.

Note: Do not link to more than 2 pages on your blog otherwise your post will be deleted by moderator or collapse from the page.

5. To start seeing the result you need to write a quality answer that will attract as many votes as possible. An upvote means positive and downvote means not relevant. However, if you posts are been downvoted the post will lose it rank and the post will be moved to the button of the page.

A post with 5k upvotes on Quora can put a meal on your table for a month without stress. No SEO required and no backlink needed.

This is an example of a relevant answer on Quora. Almost everybody loves the answer and it’s getting more votes every day.

    • Hi Verna,

      As we all know. It’s not just about the traffic, the conversion rate has to be put into consideration. Knowing fully that major Quora visitors are from top tier countries and they are good for Ad network Like AdSense.

      Although this traffic was monetized with AdSense it converts very well but that can still not be compared with an affiliate website.
      Thanks for you comment buddy.

  4. Hello Adesanmi,

    Great shout over here 🙂

    Indeed traffic do matter a lot when it comes for making a win win situation for our self and for our blogs, but the main
    stroke hits when these traffic are being converted into our subscribers.

    WOW!! Thats really impressive, page views up to 600,000 that too without any ads on it, thats something really cool over here.
    I wonder I was not near when I got into 10 months of blogging. 350,000 users those are just some amazing numbers for a site
    which is on the run for around 10 months.

    I knew Quora was very effective in bringing us traffic but this can be such a booster I didn’t knew that.
    I have not yet been on Quora but now I think its the time I hit the road hard with it.

    Thanks for the share.


    • Hi Shantanu,

      The issue of getting a traffic that really convert can’t not be underestimated but for AdSense site, this traffic may not really amount to too much of success. However, adding affiliate to the generating post is additional source of income. Aside monetizing with AdSense I also had some shot of income from Amazon which sharpen my spirit to do more.
      For not try Quora, it’s a great deal if your traffic is coming in a big way. But for a new blog with no SEO result that is indeed a great shot.
      Thanks for your words S.

    • Hi Frank,

      If you pull harder you will definitely meet a new milestone. All you have to do is restrategize, set a goal that scares you, follow forum rules and break your own rule. You will beat mine story in a lesser period.
