Okay, seriously, this is gold. Congratulations on having created the ultimate evergreen web resource. I love arbitrage stories!
I've been active on both platforms over the years. I actually joined Quora 6 months after it became available. I never thought of using Quora to grow a list, as I didn't have one. In the settings, I only see Google and Facebook. When you say you've connected Quora to Substack, are you referring to the unclickable link in your profile?
Next time you’re on Quora, just drill into the questions to find out who asked them. Quora runs its own bot engine that generates questions that it thinks people might one day ask. Thankfully it is transparent about it if you care to dig a little.
Maybe it’s a fair compromise given that the human participants are generally more helpful than other platforms?
Hi @Paul, I’ve tried Quora, but found it quite “spammy” insofar as the ratio of questions asked by actual subscribers to those generated by the Quora bot seems very low.
Have you noticed this? Does it actually matter? It is quite tedious to click through to determine if a question originated from a human or bot, but answering questions that nobody asked seems like a waste of effort.
Keep up the great work!
