After signing in with Google, Facebook, or your Quora password, you will arrive at the home page. Quora helps you find popular topics in your niche in two ways:

  1. By searching for top posts on the topic
  2. By asking a question about your industry

Scroll to the top of the page and enter your topic into the Search bar.

For this example, I will use Customer Relationship Management. When you type your topic in the search bar, you will notice a drop-down window with different subtopics directly related to it.

Select the one at the top choice which says: Topic: Customer Relationship Management.

Here you will find a list of posts dealing with varying aspects of Customer Relationship Management. In addition, they are a list of separate questions people have asked, giving you extra insight into the minds of your audience members.

Pay special attention to the ones that have the most upvotes. These will help you generate articles that put your customers at ease and answer questions you might not have considered. Reading the comment section at the bottom will also give you winning article ideas that create additional interest and increase blog engagement.

Besides, you can drive traffic to your latest website articles by answering questions other Quora members might have about a specific topic. Periodically, you can add a link to one of your articles. However, you have to be careful. You do not want to appear spammy or overly promotional. Always keep your future and current audience members in mind. Remember, your main goal is to help people on Quora get the answers they need. When you provide readers with value, they will find reasons to revisit your Quora page and website.

Answer The Public 

Answer The Public is unique research software that provides crucial information on how your audience genuinely searches for your industry topics. It functions as a keyword tool and a search listening tool simultaneously.
