In addition to social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest, Q&A website Quora may be another way for businesses to build website traffic, Small Business Trends reports.
The California-based company recently raised $50 million in funding, and has already become a way for curious folks to get answers from experts to their burning questions. Individuals who sign up can respond to queries as an expert representing their industry and brand. By sharing your industry knowledge and offering value to the Quora community, your answers will also appear in search results from Google, Yahoo and Bing – boosting your SEO, online authority, and site traffic simultaneously.
Just be sure not to spam Quora with promotional copy; your comments will be “voted down” by other members and could be counterproductive to your lead-building strategy.
