people have mixed feelings about Quora. Some, like Leonard Kim and Nicolas Cole, swear by the platform. Others, like every other person who’s failed to see results, say the platform isn’t worth the effort. I was in the second category until I committed myself to a 30-day challenge to see if I could figure the damn thing out. I’m happy to say my personal Quora challenge has turned into a consistent traffic stream for my website.

    I'm definitely bookmarking this article for sure. My startup has gotten some good results on Quora but I wasn't sure how to make it more consistent. Is answering questions that are over a year old worth it?

      Hey, answering older questions can be worth it if it fulfills a number of criteria. It has to have a decent number of followers - a few hundred. Answers should still be coming in pretty regularly. And it should have a few hundred thousand views.

      Those are some rules of thumb, but once you've built a large following on the platform then you can start to make your own rules :)

    Interesting tool. Quora is a great tool to raise your voice and tell others that you exists in the market. But getting good traffic to your site from Quora is bit technical and requires quality answers.

    Have bookmarked this to dive into it. Thanks for the share, Quora has been something I have wanted to explore for a long time.

    Personally I think authenticity and these kinds of things that can't scale are more important than ever. With the obscene rise of listicles, in-depth blog posts that have a very formulaic and templated feel with ghost-writing being common place.

    Concentrated focus from a real person + authenticity is imo becoming a unique factor again.

    Thanks guys!!!

      I have to agree with you man. Not everything is meant to scale. There should be at least one or two things in your toolbelt that you do for results as well as the love for it.
