Hello WA!
My name's Alex, I am 30, currently living in Montreal, Canada.

I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since October 2007 (over 9 years now) and I have never had a single regret about joining this wonderful community. I have been scammed several times, running after "Get Rich Quick" schemes and MLMs and I was ready to give up on the idea of "online business". And this is when I discovered WA and told myself this would be the last "make money" program I would try.

Throughout the years I have had my ups and down, I have built up a successful online business and lost it due to negligence but then I built it back up, slowly but surely. Live and learn, I guess.

Until mid-2013 I have been busy with many different projects, off and online but now I am concentrating on Internet Marketing once again - this is why you can find me right here on WA a lot more often.

I just launched a brand new entrepreneurship podcast where I interview successful people who share their strategies and experiences. It takes up a lot of my time but I love doing that!

Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions about Wealthy Affiliate or Internet Marketing in general. Don't forget to check out my blogs (on the right side of this profile page).

Success to You!

Awesome to see you here Gabriel!

This is a great place to learn affiliate marketing and SEO. It's also the perfect place to ask questions :)

Is there a tutorial for building the web site since the theme I picked isn't what I see when I launch the web builder program.
Reply
The thing is that every single theme is different so there can't be one single tutorial.

For example I use a paid theme simply because it has a lot of instructions on how to use it and modify it.

If you are using a free theme, you can Google search the name of the theme and you will probably find their official Wordpress page with instructions and support ;)

Hi AlexSol,
I am very disappointed as a monthly subscription has been paid from my bank account without my consent.
How do I go about to get a refund?
I tried to e-mail Kyle and Carson but am unable to get an e-mail through to any one of them.
Perhaps you will be able to help? Or who can I contact?

Hi EngelbertN.

It's unfortunate that you didn't understand the concept of recurring membership. It means that you will be charged the same amount automatically, on the same date as you initially went premium.

I have the same set-up for my internet bill, insurance and many other payments - they take the money automatically.

Is there any specific reason you are leaving WA?

You can also cancel your membership by going into account settings.

Hi Alex, I've been mildly addicted to you podcast :-D I want to say thanks for putting it out there, and being so "down to earth" and sincere. As a listener, it's nice to hear of someone else who has gone through a lot of the same stuff that I'm going through.

I have a question, if you've got a moment. I was doing a search regarding noindex attributes not working. I am still seeing category and tag URL's showing up in Google... and I found this question on YouTube that was sent to Matt Cutts,

"Hi Matt, I've been having issues with the no index attribute. In some instances I placed the attribute to block a page but it still seems to get indexed. Even when the page is cached with the no index attribute, the page does not disappear. Thoughts? Alex, Montreal"

I immediately thought this might be you, and was wondering (if it was you) how and if you were able to solve the problem.

I'm using All-In-One SEO so it may be an entirely different issue.

Anyway, thanks in advance... and thanks for all the helpful information you are putting out there.

Thanks for listening to the podcast ;) Always happy to hear from people who enjoy it :D

I am not sure if I ever asked this question... However I remember reading that Google may or may not consider these attributes. Basically it should work but there is no guarantee :(

Hello Alex, I have just been reading your profile and I think many of us, including myself, have ran after "Get Rich Quick Schemes"! It is great that you have been part of Wealthy Affiliate since 2007, this suggests something! I am now following you and I look forward to networking with you and reading your blog posts.

All the best to you Alex, Roy.

First paragraph - Story of my life! LOL Can't wait to make WA my "last shot"! My blog before finding this was about trying to make money online! LOL I'm still hoping to do something with it in conjunction (ohhh big word!) with my WA affiliate site. Maybe I'll have more to offer on that with what I'll learn here :)

The first paragraph? That one says my name is ALEX! :)

Nice to see you here Alicia! Don't be shy to reach out if you have any questions and yes, you might give that blog a new life later on ;)

LOL damnit! You got me! Second paragraph. In my defense, that first one is more like an introductory sentence ;)

Ok fine, I'll give you this one ;)

Thanks for the compliment.
When I joined WA I didn't know anything about websites or marketing or... any of that. So my blog isn't something that can't be learned here :)
