How can I make my Quora questions go viral?

Hello there,

Plainly stated, Quora is a question and answer site. It has a local area that feels similar to Reddit, and resembles the Yahoo forums all at once.

Anyone can answer questions on Quora.

Reputable business people, entertainers, prominent financial backers, etc., you will find responses from a wide range of people on stage.

Some of the strategies that can help your question go viral on Quora are,

1. If an answer has <10 followers, don't reply. Until you have more than 1000 followers, you won't get the views you need.

2. Group the questions and then answer in batches: say, for example, I

Hello there,

Anyone can answer questions on Quora.

Reputable business people, entertainers, prominent financial backers, etc., you will find responses from a wide range of people on stage.

Some of the strategies that can help your question go viral on Quora are,

1. If an answer has <10 followers, don't reply. Until you have more than 1000 followers, you won't get the views you need.

2. Group the questions and then the answer in batches: Say, for example, you understand that you will spend the afternoon time to do Quora answers, choose which one you tend to answer out there, so that you can build a review of drafts and have more than 20 willing to respond. You can even place them in areas that excite you.

3. Answer Frequently Asked Questions: Subjects will usually have frequently asked questions; These are usually suitable requests for answers. Whenever you see a request out there, stick with this equivalent example by adding to the conversation as well.

4. Create a Killer Quora Profile: Here are my top tips for making your profile stand out from the crowd, and it's a section that is frequently missed.

  1. Introduces the basics
  2. Add hyperlinks
  3. Express your themes
  4. Write all your credentials and highlights

Thanks.

You can never think of making your question go viral on Quora.

Yes, the answers go viral sometimes.

Every filmmaker dreams of making his film Rs 100.00.00.00 in a week, every author imagines that his book will become a bestseller, and in the same way, each new Quoran believes that his answer will get 10,000 votes to The next morning.

'Think big' is good

but

'Wait a little' is practical.

If you have a large following, you have an exceptional ability to write and write about "politics", relationships or "sex", you may get a large number of upvotes. Pretty girls get a bonus.

If you are writing research, science, literature topics

'Wait a little' is practical.

If you have a large following, you have an exceptional ability to write and write about "politics", relationships or "sex", you may get a large number of upvotes. Pretty girls get a bonus.

If you are writing research, science, literature or grammar topics, you have very little hope and should be satisfied, once you cross the 2 digits.

Exceptionally, there are wind drop gains. Inexplicable and therefore cannot be replicated.

Therefore, you cannot make the questions or answers viral on Quora. It may surprise you one day.

I don't think there is a secret recipe for virality, but I know that some companies adapt to this. Then, instead, I will offer my humble opinion.

The virality of a question would be what is a trend in other social networks and what is currently happening in the world that has everyone's attention. Combine this with your own popularity on Quora and a question that attracts responses. That is a tornado of the right question, at the right time. Think of it like getting hooked on a trending topic on Twitter and making a profit by adding it to the conversation.

Think of it like getting hooked on a trending topic on Twitter and making a profit by adding it to the conversation.

So don't ask questions that are boring to answer. Even this question could be considered boring for many. I responded because it caught my attention. I was just looking for social media questions to answer and I liked this one. How did you know it would click and respond? You couldn't. It was luck mixed with time. That is virality.

As Daniel Scalosub said below, cats and babies work well. Also, don't forget well-written titles (questions). Good luck arriving!

Write responses to controversial topics. They get more eyeballs.

My answers on food / diet and atheism continue to receive upvotes and responses for weeks after being posted.

It just has to be a good question that some people may have as well. That way, when people search for the solution to something or whatever their question is, the first thing they will find is your question.

Yes, I have and I know how to do it. There are many others better than me, but I am willing to tell you what I know.

  1. You don't choose viral questions, the Quora community does. What you can do is learn to recognize those with viral potential. These are questions that accumulate a lot of views quickly and get a lot of answers quickly. Often you will receive a single notification reporting that maybe ten people have answered the question, rather than a trickle of notifications over many hours.
  2. It will not be just any question. It has to be a question that captures the imagination of the community.

These are questions that accumulate a lot of views quickly and get a lot of answers quickly. Often you will receive a single notification reporting that maybe ten people have answered the question, rather than a trickle of notifications over many hours.
  2. It will not be just any question. It has to be a question that captures the imagination of the community and interests a wide variety of people. With a lot of practice, you will learn to write questions with high viral potential (this starts after you have composed between 10,000 and 15,000 questions). But since there is no guarantee, you have to write a lot of decent questions. If 5% of the questions you write become very popular, you are doing well.
  3. You have to answer your question that shows signs of popularity. Read and rate each answer. Visit the question every day and check all the answers again. Decide if you want to send more response requests. (You probably will, unless you have a brilliant answer that will be impossible to beat.)
  4. Few questions go viral in just a few days. It builds up over time. You have to visit your most popular questions at least once a week. You can find the most promising ones on your STATISTICS page.
  5. It used to be that questions asking for opinions were your best option. That is no longer true. Now, your best bets are questions people ask themselves about today, tomorrow, and for months to come. You probably have popular opinion questions in your STATS. Those are relics of the old algorithm and copying them won't work.
  6. Most people will not listen to this advice. Why am I sharing this information if it is really useful? Because I know human nature and most people don't listen. You are probably one of them. But maybe not.
  7. Remember, you are a librarian curating a portfolio of quality questions, not a machine gun spitting out a bunch of bad questions.
  8. Be yourself. For the love of God, don't copy what other people are doing. That will ruin you. Ask questions that really interest you, because you will read and reread the answers you get over the next 12 months. If the subject bores you, you're going to hate curing your questions, you're going to feel miserable, you're going to procrastinate, and you're not going to do anything. You won't add much quality to Quora either.

Want more helpful information like this (although most of you won't use it)? I try to give direct and well-informed answers to questions about the QPP several times a week. Every now and then I make a mistake, but once I realize it, I write a better answer. The information is intended to be free. What you do with it is another matter.

Thanks for the question!

. understand the general feelings and what is happening around the target users. elections, rape, feminism, religion ... Whatever people talk about, you talk about it and you agree with the majority. Never disagree with the majority if you want virality.
. write stories. Everyone likes to read stories, not research articles. no matter what we all say, we are here to entertain ourselves.
. If you don't have a large following, make at least one of the best writers like you and follow you. His followers will agree with his votes in favor.
. get a nice photo if you are a girl, a silly photo if you are a boy.

Never say anything against feminism, individualism, and atheism. They are bread and butter from Quora.

I am the mother of a teenager, whose ambition in life is to go viral on YouTube.

In fact, no. Forget Youtube, you would love to go viral anywhere on the internet.

So, writing an answer on Quora and then watching it go viral with my 17-year-old son, was like receiving a big, fat, golden ticket to the 'Teen Admiration Club of the Year', with the added benefit of 'Now you are officially cool 'written in fancy letters underneath.

Can I say Hip? Do people still say that?

Well, I say it anyway. It felt fashionable. There.

I am the mother of a teenager, whose ambition in life is to go viral on YouTube.

Can I say Hip? Do people still say that?

Well, I say it anyway. It felt fashionable. There.


I never would have expected something of mine to go viral.

The only virus I have found is the diagnosis of my husband's plugged ears.

But last week, I found out what it feels like when something I posted goes viral.

And not just a little viral. The answer in question received 250k in four days. That is Viral.

If you are going to do it, do it with style I tell you.


I haven't been writing on Quora for a long time; I did it as a means for someone to read my hormonal talk. I am not a professional writer, I am a 47 year old mother going through a midlife crisis, backpacking the world with her husband and two teenagers for a year.

And before leaving home I started a travel blog as a way to document our trip. I heard that some people make money blogging and secretly fantasized that I would do the same and how awesome it would be.

I could buy wine and mascara, show off in front of the kids, and pretend I'm famous.

Unfortunately, I've only made $ 1.62 from Adsense, so the last seven months have seen me mostly sober and my lashes remain brown and plump.


And then I found Quora and started answering questions.

Last week I answered a question about one of my favorite places in the whole world. India. And that answer went viral:

Liz Deacle's answer to What are some unexpected things first-time visitors to India notice?

The answer was quite simple; I included some family photos from our trip and told the truth about how I had experienced India.

It must have struck a chord with a lot of people. Two hours after posting, I received hundreds of messages, mostly from Indian citizens, telling me how proud they had been to hear so much praise for their country.

It felt wonderful to know that not only had people read my response, but that they were actually taking the time to message me. I was honored.


Finding out that the answer had gone viral.

I try not to look at my phone first thing in the morning. I find that if I do, nothing important gets done. Kids walk into the kitchen expecting porridge and instead see me, hunched over and squinting at my screen. Depending on the content that I woke up to, I will be: a) frowning and shaking my head, muttering "do you have to be kidding me?" or, b) smile and nod like a possessed maniac.

Either way is not good and tends to interrupt the start of the day.

My teens prefer to see their mother doing something worthwhile in the morning, like making breakfast or emptying the bins, so I keep checking my emails until I'm safely locked in the bathroom, pretending to take a shower.

But that morning I couldn't resist. I'd caught a glimpse of the little red number notification next to the email icon on my phone, and it said 75.

The porridge could go and fill itself.

I will not go into all the details of what happened that day; If you want to know more you can read my post 'The day mom's answer went viral on Quora'. However, I warn you that it is not pretty.


As a parent of teenagers, I spend my life trying to impress them. To catch up with them.

I try everything and anything. I wear trendy clothes (sort of), but they say "Oh, skinny jeans were so last year."

I like their stuff on Facebook, but they go and create a separate account and secretly chat with their "real" friends about it.

But go viral? In Internet? Well that's a different story. There's your winner, mom.

And don't think I'll never let them forget this victory, no sir, I won't.

This will be talked about in our family for many years. Like it or not.

It will be brought out at every opportunity that presents itself; at your graduation; his wedding day; at the birth of your first child; at my funeral; Everywhere.

Mom's response went viral on Quora.


Thank you Quora for pleasing me so much. Thank you to the people of India for responding with such enthusiasm and for all your lovely comments, and thank you kids for not disturbing your silly mother as she wrote her Quora response.

And honestly, if you want to know what it feels like to have a response that goes viral, this is it.

While it is true that I felt humbled, grateful and great beyond belief to see such huge numbers next to my name, no matter how many thousands of people on Quora loved and shared my answer, there is really only one person in my life. that interests me. to please; She is seventeen, wears strange socks, and looks at her phone. Much.

One of my responses went viral, much to my surprise. Here are the reasons why I think it happened.

  • A popular question: the more people are interested in the topic enough to visit the question, the more people will give you a positive vote.
  • Be the first to answer: I was lucky in this regard. Because mine was the first response, mine received most of the attention.
  • Quora Connections: The more people who follow you on Quora, the more people will be exposed to your answer.
  • Post promotion: If your answer starts getting upvotes, Quora will promote the answer in the feed. Say ali

  • Post promotion: If your answer starts getting upvotes, Quora will promote the answer in the feed. Let's say Alice follows Bob and Charlie. If Bob and Charlie voted in favor of your answer, and many others did, then Alice will be notified.
  • Quora Status: If you have that red pen as a Top Writer, that helps too.

Those are the only predictable elements. Beyond that, it depends on the answers that other people value enough to vote.
And it still amazes me that my answer was as popular as it was. I have even replied that my answer is overrated.

Thanks for the A2A, Mert Kilickaya.

Yes!

There are several tricks that I have noticed that can be used. If you follow the steps, you will surely be the next Balaji Viswanathan (பாலாஜி விஸ்வநாதன்).

So here we go; First the basics.

  • Learn to read more. Learn more about the story.
  • Develop good writing skills, try to find easy vocabulary, and shorten your paragraphs.
  • Be precise about what you are writing about.
  • Write consistently for 3 to 4 years. Consistency is paramount.
  • Write on various topics.
  • Use pictures whenever necessary to improve your answer. Do not reply using only the images.

Now that you are done with the basics, here are some tricks that work

  • Be precise about what you are writing about.
  • Write consistently for 3 to 4 years. Consistency is paramount.
  • Write on various topics.
  • Use pictures whenever necessary to improve your answer. Do not reply using only the images.

Now that you're done with the basics, here are some tricks that work for sure. Strictly for getting quick positive feedback to get started:

  • Write personal stories of the homeless. People love the underdog.
  • If you are from India and have cracked the IIT, or know someone who did, please mention it in the answer appropriately. You will see the votes in favor skyrocketing. I recently wrote an answer about an IAS officer, who died in operation at a young age. Manjeet Bisht's answer to Have you ever met someone who was too perfect? What happens is that I was missing a piece of information and I mentioned that the boy studied at an IIT. Boom! The votes in favor came as anything. Then someone corrected my mistake and I updated the answer that the guy did his engineering from AIT Pune, and people no longer felt the need to vote up. That's the power of IIT, even IAS doesn't matter.
  • Also, if you are a girl, then you have an advantage, at least in the beginning. Try to write more personal experiences (it works for the Indian mindset), love stories work well.
  • Try to be pro Modi and pro BJP, highlighting their achievements will surely bring you positive feedback. I guess it's hard to beat NaMo's charisma.
  • Write for men. The people on Quora are smart and see gender inequality and how some women use it to their advantage. If you support equality, then men deserve fair treatment, write about that.

So if you follow this crash course, you are surely going to break Quora. Or what you can do is write for the love of writing, feel the joy of sharing ideas. Don't worry about upvotes as they will eventually come your way.

The answer above is completely based on my writing experience of about 100 weird answers, which I wrote in the last 2 months. I have analyzed my own writing and have seen the trend for upvotes and opinions.

Peace.

PS: We Indians love IITs and IIMs. I have no hatred for those institutes.
