Utilize Questions on Quora and Gain More Web Traffic

Keywords are essential in internet marketing. More so, the right keywords related to your business or service are very crucial if you want to drive more traffic into your website. However, there is an interesting observation that has been made which showed that most of the time, people use questions rather than keywords when using search engines such as Google and Bing.

Quora

For example a student who needs to answer his homework would type in the exact question given by the teacher in order to find the answer he is looking for. Then, a housewife who suddenly has the urge to bake a cake using and ran out of shortening might type in a question asking for an alternate to shortening. . A person who has questions will not think of keywords when searching for something. And these types of moments are what make Quora very useful to anyone who has a question that requires an immediate answer.

Quora is your FAQ hub for all sorts of niches answered by experts or pundits.

Through this site, you can get a lot of knowledge and expert help if you are searching. On the other side of the coin, you can showcase what you know and what you have or utilize it as a marketing tool to build up your prestige. It can be used to your advantage to build a strong online presence.

quoraOne way to maximize Quora is to build a profile that highlights your skills, interests, and expertise on topics or niches you are most familiar and comfortable with. Focus more on the questions you have answered and build a link to your website to cement and strengthen your authority regarding the subject matter. Be sure it reflects and represents the product or service you have.

One method to make your ranking rise quickly is to modify your profile based on the topic question. As you change your area of expertise based on the focal point of the question, your answer will climb the ranking ladder as well. This will lead more people right at your doorsteps, so to speak, as they seek expert advice and specific answers to the question.

In order to keep a steady stream of followers, try to focus on one or three areas of interest to build your reputation on. Although it is advised not to put all your eggs in one basket, too much diversity can also harm you as you can spread yourself too thinly.

Finally, make sure to build your reputation by maintaining the quality of the answers you give to the questions. Always make sure that they are well-researched as one mistake can ruin the reputation you have carefully built.

Try to find blog and forum sites that have the same field as your website then try to promote your site with them through it. Since the people have the same interest then boosting your website will be easy and again effortless. Just be careful to read the blog or forum sites’ guidelines as there are those that don’t really allow external links. If that’s the case don’t post the site’s link directly but make words to entice other posters to privately message you to get a copy of the link.

PPC Advertising

The fourth one is a bit tricky and expensive but if you have the resources then you can pull this off. Try to make an advertising partnership with already major websites like Google and Facebook. It is a bit expensive but the results can be promising.

Build Blog Traffic with Commentluv

commentLuvIn order to gauge how healthy your blog is, there should be more than a couple of comments in each and every post. It should not be just any comment but it is important that the comment is related to the topic where the comment is left (this means that your article was read by the visitor). Why, because there are some blog hoppers who will simply leave a comment about anything under the sun and have nothing to do with your post just to simply advertise their website.  Leaving a comment practically gives a commenter a chance to show a link back to his/her website to encourage more visitors.

Let us face the fact that that is one of the reasons why comments are left to your blog post. Aside from the decent percentage of those who really want to read you blog because they get entertained or they really need the information you give, a large number of blog commenter do simply comment as a way of free advertising.  The more traffic your site have, the better chance they get someone to click going to their blog.

Given this scenario, I believe that blog commenter’s should still be rewarded to get a chance to showcase their website to other visitors. Anyway, this is vital to all bloggers. Even yourself, would like to have someone visit your website and comment about your posts. This encourage every to hop from one website to another, giving everyone a chance to be visited and at the same time enriches the knowledge of those who blog hop. How? Well, reading stimulates knowledge.

If you want everything I mentioned on top, I think it’s time I introduce you to Commentluv.  This pretty little tool, allows you to get more traffic, encourage readers to comment about your posts, and its gives you more chance of getting back links for the benefit of your website, at least to your latest post. If you leave a comment to a Commentluv enabled blog or website, you get a chance to add a link going back to your site. This actually allows one to give a brand to their website and to increase its visibility.

Reasons why CommentLuv is important for commenters
