I Got Invited To The Quora Partner Program

I know what you might be thinking, what exactly is the Quora Partner Program.

Or even, what exactly is Quora?

So let's Break those two questions down.

What is Quora?

First, Quora is a question-and-answer type forum, much like Yahoo answers. A person asks a question to the people of the internet and anyone who feels like answering it can answer it.

When you ask your question, you can also send invitations to people on Quora who are known to answer questions on this topic, so they are “experts”. So while yes, anyone can answer it, you can guarantee that someone who knows what they are talking about answers your question by inviting them to answer it.

However, just like how Wikipedia has people who moderate it and can remove answers that are clearly wrong, the same is said for Quora. So generally, the answers are pretty accurate and very well thought out.

Otherwise, the answers will get removed.

Something else that Quora does is the answers that other users find the most helpful can get up-voted, much like on Reddit.

More Upvotes = More Views

Now back to the Partner Program.

Before I get too deep into what the partner program is, it has to be said that the program is invite-only, I am one of the elite now.

The Quora Partner Program allows a person to monetize the questions they ask on Quora. Let me further explain on how it has HUGE potential.

If you are a part of this program, you can get paid for literally just asking a question.

Arguably it is more difficult to answer a question than it is to ask it, but that’s not how you get paid for this. Perhaps that will change in the future, but for now, its only about asking questions.

I find this concept rather intriguing, and its one that I have not exactly mastered just yet.

Take a look at my earnings from the past 30 days.

That’s pretty crap.

Sure I will happily take the 74 cents. But I also essentially don’t really touch Quora either. I will say that the biggest thing this program has going for it, though, is that I can collect revenue from these questions for an entire year.

You get a share of the ad revenue, so the more views the question gets, the more money you can make. This also means the more questions you ask, the more view potential and, thus, the more money you make.

That means if I was to take this seriously and ask questions every single day, this could potentially have a giant snowball effect.

I mean, check out my stats from when I did take Quora Seriously.



As You can see, I have answered 10X+ as many questions as I have asked.

So I definitely need to up my question-asking game.

While I might not be making much cash, I have found a few people who have said they made mad money from this program.

A poster on this Reddit forum even says that they have had a few questions break $60; I wonder what kind of questions they are asking.

Something I also need clarification on, however and from my Internet sleuthing, how does one get invited to the Quora Partner program?

How does one get invited to the Quora Partner program?

Well, Honestly, I have no Idea, and it would appear that no one else knows either.

I have seen people say that they got invited and hardly did anything on Quora and others who are far more active than me, and they have never gotten an invite.

However, if my earnings are any indication of how much you could earn from being a casual user anyways, then you aren’t exactly missing out on a whole lot.

However, do not just write off Quora completely. Look at these stats again.

Quora Answer Views

These numbers are huge! And honestly, I haven’t even answered questions on Quora in a long time.

As of writing this blog post, the last time I answered a question on Quora that wasn’t my own question was back in September; that’s 8 months of virtually no activity, and I still managed to get 5.6k answer views this month.

You can see the power of Quora as a traffic source if nothing else.

So while the Partner Program honestly isn’t anything that special, Quora itself is still a giant resource that anybody trying to make it online should be taking full advantage of.

Before anyone asks, no, the links from Quora are not do follow; they are no follow, so using it as part of your linking strategy probably isn’t the best way to go.

However, answering questions, leaving quality content, and then linking to your site has HUGE potential for traffic.

You could always outsource answering or asking questions.
