If Quora paid me US$1 per answer view, I would…

Game on.

  1. Hire a data science team to recommend the most lucrative questions to answer.
  2. Buy answers to those questions I could quickly revise.
  3. Pay for tools to speed up my cycle time, the better to be the first answer, best answer, etc.
  4. Buy a bot to identify the Quorans most likely to share my answers, follow them, and to upvote their questions/answers.
  5. Buy cheap ads and post through sock puppets on other social media to drive up viewership of my answers.
  6. Buy Quora stock. (clearly rolling in cash)
  7. Become an activist investor and fire whoever came up with the cockamamie idea of paying a buck per view.
