Because they are “natural” questions, they contain long tail keywords in most cases.

Because of that, these sites quickly amass search engine traffic in addition to their regular user base traffic.

How to Properly Use Question and Answer Sites

question and answer sitesThere are hundreds of Q&A sites out there, but for this post, I’m going to focus on two quality Question and Answer Sites:

Quora – The King of Question and Answer sites, Quora generates approximately one new question from members every 10 – 12 SECONDS!

Do you see that?

EVERY 10 to 12 seconds of every day, someone goes to Quora and ask a question!

In essence, that also means there are over 6000 NEW questions a day!

In other words, Quora is really powerful for finding, connecting and networking with new people!

It’s up to you, but using this Q & A site I have:

  • Generated massive referral traffic to my blog (Important for increased SEO ranking for my blog);
  • Built connections that share my content (blog post) to 100’s of Thousands of people;
  • Assisted me in achieving a Page Rank of # 25 on Google with a blog less than six months old!

But, you have to use this amazing platform the correct way if you hope to reap the rewards.

This short TWO MINUTE video from my Network Marketing Channel explains how you can reap the rewards mentioned above:

Using Forum Marketing

Forum Marketing

The second method I use that increases my influence online is Forum Marketing.

Ever heard of it?

Not many have!  But, it is essential to your growth!

And, the best way to understand it is that Forum Marketing is VERY similar to Blog Commenting.

With blog commenting you look for post relevant to your research.

You read the post.

And, when your done, you leave an excellent comment.

When you use Forums to grow your online presence and authority, you basically follow the same pattern.

Look for a Forum Topic you think will be interesting and something you can help someone with.

Or, create your own topic you would like to discuss and members join in.

To get the conversation started and meet Influencers in your niche, find a niche related Forum and simply find a topic you want to ask a question in and SOMEONE of influence will answer.  This is how connections are made!

Forum Marketing is listed here because it is the Absolutely best way to present yourself as the go to person in your niche.

Every question or answer you leave needs to be built around a strategy.

And all you have to do is answer a question! When using these sites, use this method:

  • To start a conversation create a topic around your keyword;
  • After creating the topic, ask a question (Be sure the question has your keyword in it). 

Its also a great strategy to search the forum for questions you know the answers to.  To do this, type the question you would like to answer in the platforms search bar.



Why You Should Use Question and Answer Sites?

Network Marketing forum    If you want to sky rocket your online presence the question and answer sites is going to do it for you!

And, if you think of Forum Posting as the same as blog commenting and take it serious, then you can expect great results!

Here are three things to consider when searching for the perfect forum to comment on:

  1. Make sure it is related to your niche.
  2. Try and be the first to reply to a question or topic if possible.
  3. If you can’t be the first to reply, don’t worry about it.  Join a conversation that has already started!

network marketing forum     A good example of this can be found on The Network Marketing Forum.

Being relatively new, they only have a had full of Topics.  And, this makes it a GOLD MINE!

  • Look at the topics that are there. 
  • Decide which one you think might interest you.
  • And, join that Forum.

Once you are inside the Forum, you will see a list of Topics.

THIS is where you look for questions!

Find a question you wrote a blog post about.  Go to that question and leave an answer.

THIS is where the magic happens!

Now, every time someone visits that Forum they have the opportunity to read your answer.  If they found your answer interesting, they will follow you over to your blog!

And, with every answer you leave people will begin to think of you as an authority figure!

Quora and The Network Marketing Forum are perfect for you to get started!
