Quora is the largest question and answer community. This means that people have a large pool of users from which to choose, but if you can’t answer questions in a useful way, you won’t get any traffic to your site.
At the end of the day, your Quora profile needs to be the best in its class. You need to create high-quality content that your target audience will find useful (or entertaining).
If you are looking for a complete guide to Quora optimization, you can read our previous article, but the goal of this article is to give you a quick overview of the most important aspects of Quora SEO:
- URL structure
- Answer box
- Search engine rankings
- Content quality
- Quora search features
Let’s start with keywords!
Keywords are the phrases that you want to rank for within your Quora profile.
We recommend that you use a list of long-tail keywords, but in general, you should choose between 150 and 200 keywords.
It’s important to use long-tail keywords, because these will not be in the search engine results pages (SERPs), and therefore they will help you to rank for more keywords that your target audience is searching for.
For example, the keyword “best apple pie” is a good long-tail keyword to use. This keyword has less competition than “apple pie recipe”, and it’s a much better match for your target audience.
We also recommend that you include your brand name, as it will be searched by people who are interested in your brand, and therefore it’s a perfect way to create awareness among your target audience.
Another useful keyword is “quora SEO”. This keyword is used to find out more about Quora SEO.
2. URL structure
URL structure is the structure of your Quora profile.
In order to optimize your URL structure, we recommend that you use the URL structure below:
3. Answer box
The answer box is the box at the end of your Quora page, which shows up when people search for a question.
The questions that appear in the answer box have a lot of competition, and therefore it’s important that you answer the question in a clear and interesting way.
A lot of people think that the answer box is the best place to answer questions. However, the purpose of the answer box is to give people more options, and the question should not be the only one that they see.
It’s also important to answer in a natural way. If you answer a question in a confusing way, it will look bad to your target audience.
4. Search engine rankings
First, it’s important to understand that Quora does not publish rankings. However, the Quora algorithm does calculate the difficulty of a question.
If the question is easy to answer, this means that the question has a high search difficulty.
This is also important when optimizing your answers. You should answer questions that your target audience is interested in.
The next thing that we want to point out is that Google does not give a lot of information about the number of searches that a question has.
There is a ranking system for the questions, but it’s not something that Google publishes.
This means that we cannot rely on the Google algorithm to optimize our Quora optimization.
However, we do need to remember that the search engine algorithms are constantly changing, and we should follow the trends.
5. Content quality
The content that you create for Quora should be high-quality. This means that:
- You should write unique content
- You should use proper grammar and spelling
- The content should be interesting, entertaining, and informative
The goal of your content is to create a good first impression for your target audience.
For example, if your target audience is people who are searching for the best apple pie, then the best way to create interest in your content is to tell them about the best apple pie.
You should also create content that will attract your target audience. For example, if your target audience is people who are looking for recipes for apple pie, then you should create recipes for apple pie.
If you create a page about some specific topic, then Quora will think that this is a good fit for your target audience.
In order to know if your content is good, you can check these metrics:
- Content engagement (How many people comment on your content and how many people read your content)
- Content readability (How easy is it to understand your content)
- Content quality (You should check the content quality by checking for spam, low-quality content, and duplicate content)
- Content visibility (How visible your content is)
You should also check the search metrics for Quora to understand how well you rank. We recommend that you optimize your Quora profile for search visibility. This means that other people who are interested in your content will discover your content organically.
Here are the search metrics that you should check in order to understand your performance.
6. Quora reputation
The last thing that you should pay attention to when optimizing your Quora profile is your reputation.
Your reputation will affect your Quora optimization. If you are a positive contributor in Quora, then people will talk more about your content.
If you are a negative contributor, then the opposite will happen.
You can check your reputation by looking at the following metrics:
- Reputation (How many people say that they have seen your content)
- Reputation visibility (How visible your content is)
- Reputation trust (How trustworthy your content is)
This is the best way to optimize your Quora profile.
If you are a new contributor, this means that you have no online reputation. This is why we suggest that you start by creating a positive reputation.
7. Quora traffic
Quora traffic doesn’t really have a direct impact on your SEO strategy.
However, it does help to understand how well people find your content.
When you optimize your Quora profile for traffic, it will mean that people will find your content organically.
If people are using Quora as a search engine, then the traffic will help you understand how people discover your content.
If your target audience is looking for your content, then you can know that this content is interesting and useful to them.
8. Quora content
You should optimize your Quora content in a similar way as you optimize your Quora profile.
This means that you should create high-quality content. We don’t recommend that you create a lot of content. The goal of your content is to create a good first impression for your target audience.
You should also use the right keywords.
If you create a lot of content, then Quora will think that you are too much into keyword optimization. The goal of your content should be to create a good impression, and not optimize for keywords.
If you optimize your content for keywords, then you will end up in the SERPs, and you will not see many of your target audience.
By creating high-quality content, you can optimize your content in a way that it will not only attract your target audience, but also Google. We recommend that you optimize your content for both visibility and relevance.
Here is the best way to optimize your content:
Your goal should be to generate a lot of relevant visitors to your content.
If you do this, then you can expect to see an increase in your traffic.
There are other things that you can do to optimize your content.
9. Quora internal linking
Internal links are a great way to optimize your content.
These are links that join two pages together.
These links can be used to get users to click on your content.
You should use internal links in your Quora content in order to optimize for visibility.
The goal of your internal links is to create a good first impression for your target audience.
This means that you should create a lot of internal links.
Quora is a powerful SEO tool. By using this tool, you can generate traffic to your website.
It is important to optimize your Quora profile for search visibility and relevance.
If you optimize your Quora profile for traffic, then you will attract more people to your website.
If you optimize your content for visibility, then you will also attract more people.
