If you have been around the internet long enough you must have met Quora. If you haven’t, here is a quick summary of what Quora is. It is a site where you can ask questions about anything. You will get answers from the online Quora community. You can ask anything, I mean anything. From something as crazy as, how does it feel to eat a book? To something as sensible as, how to make money online. It is all up to you. The company started in 2009 and has grown in leaps and bounds. It is now among the top one fifty sites in the world.
Quora is clearly a big success. But is there anything in it for you. Well, the answer was both yes and no until now! That sounds confusing but I will explain in a moment. It was not possible to make money directly on Quora until they rolled out Quora Knowledge Price.
Here is how the Quora Knowledge price works. Companies sponsor particular questions on the site. These sponsoring companies then pay individuals who came up with the best answers. A sample question may be something like; how do you think google search Engine can be made better? This particular question will be sponsored by say google to get ideas on how to improve their search engine.
