Need your opinion/advice on something. I've been contacted by the editor of a health and wellness site wanting to do guest articles on my site and even pay a fee to do so. She

She will get the traffic, not you:) But she'll pay to get her post on your website to get more exposure if your website gets a lot of traffic, then good for her.
You need to do a little research on Google and see what the fees and requirements are.

Thanks for your advice.....I've decided to not allow guest bloggers

Having trouble with Jaaxy for 2 days? When you try to get QSR for a keyword, all it does is register "retry"? Is anyone know what's going on w/ Jaaxy? Thanks

Thanks guys.....we'll just have to be patient!

Hopefully the tech folks are trying to fix it.

Yeah!

As of now, everyone is facing that problem.

Kyle said 17 hours back that they are working on it. Might be something related to a system issue.

I'm 1000% sure that it'll get resolved. We need to have patience, and everything will work out just fine!

Ani :)

Ongoing problem for all. More in this thread

Yes it is but its not working right Kyle is on it and we are waiting on an update hope this helps

I'm changing some of my Google indexed URLs Titles, keyword phrases, and permalinks to less competitive ones for hopefully better page ranking. I know I'll have to "fetch as"

I think you just need to submit a new sitemap if you're doing so many major changes. You can't remove anything from console. You can only resubmit a new sitemap so your entire site will be crawled with the old changes. The old links may still appear in console for awhile as errors though, probably so expect them. As long as you've submitted the new sitemap properly, those errors should go away.

Grace sorry I didn't get back sooner....didn't have internet for about 7 hours, got me behind. I'll submit a new sitemap when I've made all the changes on the URLs. You know, you can actually delete URLs in Google Console just like you can delete a sitemap, That's why I asked the question. The deletion is not permanent, however, according to Google, it's removed for 3 months, and reindexed unless you request to delete again. By the way, my present sitemap is correct for the first time thanks.

Great to hear Terry, and good to know about deleting links on Console, I've never tried doing it, so don't know for sure how it works. A new sitemap should wipe out the old one links being indexed though. It won't happen right away, it will take time still after you submit a new sitemap. See what happens. :)

Thanks Grace....hey, what was the way you showed me to quickly check whether a URL is indexed or not on Google? You said go to Google search and I think put in your URL somehow? I can't remember, my mind isn't what it use to be! Don't get old........just kidding!

Yes, just search the URL of your post in the Google search. If it's indexed, it'll show up, if it's not, it won't.

Thanks Grace....hey, how was Vegas? Did you play the "one-armed bandits"?

Vegas was awesome Terry! I didn't win any money and even lost the $200 WA gave me! Lol but it was so much fun and an incredible experience. They really invest in their super affiliates. :)

Yea, Vegas can be a whole lot of fun....you know, the one thing that bothers me is in my position, is by not promoting WA affiliate referrals in order to reach the 300 goal, there's no way I can ever qualify for a Vegas trip, if I'm understanding it right......Anyway, glad you enjoyed it!

Hi Terry, promoting WA is not the only way to making money. You're on a better path now that you've got your keywords going. Don't let shiny objects take you away from your own online business. You have a good thing going, you just need to get those keywords right and produce more content, you'll feel difference soon.

Promoting WA is an entire separate business, and you trying to promote WA on a niche site is not going to happen. This is the truth that most probably don't want to hear. :)

Any niche can make money, it's a matter of those darn keywords right.

Grace

Right! I know....thanks.........

Cool, let me know if you have more issues with this Search Console. :)

I'd like to make requesting a visitor's email address on my site optional instead of mandatory. Some visitors will not want to give their email out, but still leave a comment

If someone doesn't want to leave an email, they will just give you a fake one. The comment box, you can't make that not required. It's for your own protection.

Thanks Grace....I'll PM you later

I am not sure--since I make my comments on here, haven't looked at an actual post. I thought they were going to remove the line for folks to put in an email address. Shows what I know.

Is this with an opt in box or something else as its not quite clear :)

Dave, yes, it's the email mandatory request box on everyone's web site, along w/ name and website box. If the email box was opt-in that would be Ok, cause the reader could still comment even if they chose not to leave their email address. That's what I'm getting at. Thanks.

In that case, I'd leave it as is personally, because you would want people on your list primarily, so with what your talking of, your limiting your options, as I understand it : )
