Quora Ads Year in Review

Industry

Format

2023 was a milestone year for Quora.

We surpassed 400M monthly unique visitors on the platform, providing our advertisers with vast global reach and a high-intent audience of engaged users.

Quora launched Poe, a chat platform that lets users ask questions and have back-and-forth conversations with AI-powered bots.

We also invested in several improvements to our ads platform. From enhanced targeting options to improved analytics and engagement tools, we are continuously evolving to empower businesses and marketers to connect with their audience on the platform.

Join us as we celebrate a year filled with innovation, insights, and impactful advertising opportunities on Quora.

Quora Ads Manager feature launches in 2023

Auto-targeting

Auto-targeting is a high-impact feature that can help self-serve advertisers start reaching the right Quora audience as soon as possible. With Auto-targeting, Quora’s machine learning system will automatically determine the best targeting configuration for your goals and optimize for better efficiency and performance over time.

CPA Auto-bidding

We were thrilled to launch one of our advertisers’ most requested features this year: CPA auto-bidding! This bid type uses advanced machine learning modeling to dynamically tune your bid to optimize performance—so you no longer have to worry about making any manual updates. Advertisers running conversion-optimized bidding and meeting certain eligibility requirements have the option to switch their existing ad sets to auto-bidding.

Learn how to get started.

Conversion value passback

We updated the Quora Pixel to pass back values for each conversion, allowing our ranking system to optimize for your ad’s most valuable conversions. This feature is supported both via Quora Pixel and Google Tag Manager.

Learn how to set it up.

More image sizes

Our team broadened the technical requirements to accept a wider range of aspect ratios—anywhere from 4:5 (mobile), 5:4 (desktop), up to 16:9. As long as your image falls within this range, we will automatically pad it to fit a variety of placements on the platform—making it even easier to repurpose existing assets to launch a campaign on Quora.

Account-level keyword exclusions

We launched account-level keyword exclusions as a part of our Brand Safety & Suitability settings to give advertisers more flexibility and control over where their messages are shown on Quora.
