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