A Quora blog is a useful tool to help expand the authority and brand of your main blog. And so Quora Blog SEO is important because the more Quora pages that you can get seen on Google that all point at your main event the better. The more these pages are seen the more you main blog is seen.
Here are some tips to optimise your Quora SEO settings for blog posts
A newly created Quora Blog should carry the branding of your main blog. So for Infobunny we have set up as Infobunny as the title and then description as – Social Media Guides, Tutorials and Articles. The strategy of the Infobunny Quora Blog is to support Infobunny and not to out rank Infobunny. For this reason we concentrate on creating shorter posts and cut-down articles of posts we publish on Infobunny.
If you know anything about on page SEO then it is good time to tell you what you can’t do with Quora Search Engine Optimisation so that you are not scratching your head thinking “how do I do that”
Quora Blog SEO what you can’t do
The permalink of any Quora blog page that you create is defined by the title of the post. So if you create a post titled Quora Blog SEO – How to SEO optimise Quora Blogs then that phrase becomes the permalink. Unfortunately you can’t edit the permalink like you can on WordPress so think long and hard about your title.
You may not be able to edit a permalink but there is a fix for this so that you can have a permalink that is just a couple of keywords, for example, Quora SEO (more about this on the what you can do section below)
You cannot assign H1, H2, H3, H4 to the title or any subtitles. There is also no way of assigning a meta description. The meta description, therefore, comes from the first 160 characters of any post that you make. You also unfortunately cannot assign alt image text to images.
Quora Blog SEO what you can do AND SHOULD DO

So if you create a post titled Quora Blog SEO – How to SEO optimise Quora Blogs then that phrase becomes the permalink. Unfortunately you can’t edit the permalink like you can on WordPress so think long and hard about your title. You may not be able to edit a permalink but there is a fix for this so that you can have a permalink that is just a couple of keywords, for example,
Here is how you fix the problem and make a permalink that is just a couple of keywords. The simple answer is you make the blog title the keyword phrase and save. Then you edit the title and make it what you want it to be.
Add your keyword or keyword phrase into the first 160 word of posts. And use them in your title. Then use related keywords and phrases and variations on your main keywords within the body of the post.
Link out to a couple of authority sites that are the same niche to improve your Quora blog authority.
You may not be able to add alt image text to images but they are still very important. Add relevant images for a visual effect. They keep visitors on your pages longer and just make you look more professional. And remember when you social share the social sites draw up and take the image on shares with a text snippet and link back so use images.
Now it is time to promote
When you publish have the Facebook and Twitter share options ticked so that you syndicate to these services. Then do a round of social sharing on all other social platforms that you are a member. This is easy if you are using the Chrome browser and have add share buttons to the top of the browser.
WordPress has a built in ping service that pings new posts out when published. WordPress has a ping service built in, Quora doesn’t, so just go to somewhere like PingFarm and just add your article and ping it out.
