Joined March 2014
Hello My name is Barry I live in the southern part of the united kingdom I am 50 years old I am an electrician by trade and have been learning internet marketing for a few years. I finally took action in january 2014 and have my first word-press affiliate site up and running.
I have not made any sales yet and want to really learn how to build an online business.
I am quite proficient at word-press and I have my first offline client who I am building a word-press site for.
I would love to help any body who has word-press questions, I love word-press and I am a very good teacher. I understand the struggle of going through the learning curve of building a website.
I hope I can help any body with word-press questions I look forward to interacting with the community and getting to know everybody. I don't feel alone any more in this business now I have joined the wealthy affiliate.
On a personnel level I have quite a story.
Back in 2003 I was given a year to live due to my alcoholism, in April 2004 I got my self sober and am proud to say that on the 2nd of april 2019 I was 15 years sober.
My niche is now Wordpress

Hi Barry, Thanks for following me. I too enjoyed reading your bio. Congrat's on your 10 year of abstinance from alcohol. One of my sons is trying to get off it and I can't even imagine how hard it must be. If it's anything like getting off sugar, well.... I'll keep that offer in mind on wordpress help. Onward and upward!

Hello Barry, I am new to WA and I read your article on the WP child thing. Didn't really understand it, but maybe you can help me with my issue. It is in my profile blog, setting up my theme.

Have you still not made any money in 3 years doing affiliate marketing? Just going by your profile. If so, that is not good.

Let me know if I can be of service, look forward to working with you.

Hello Barry and a belated welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You have probably found out ages ago that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Speaking of which. You have been here almost as long as I have so why follow me now after all this time?
I don't suppose you will but if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Barry,

I really am off in a minute, but wanted to pop by and say hello here before I tucked in for the night.

I really appreciate you visiting my site and leaving me a comment. I totally agree that being here makes working from home so much better. There's never a lonely moment at all.

I found your personal share very touching, and I'm sure you manage to inspire many with your story. I guess you're now at 12 years and counting. Really impressive!

All the best,

Jules

Hello, Sir:
Thanks for your following me. I certainly would like to take advantage of your WP expertize as Im very noob.
I would like to know where to see a complete training on how to set a website properly and completely. Unfortunately here at WA you can get bits of it here and there but nothing really complete so it is frustrating to try and make a good job.
And if you have some time, please take a look a t my site and tell me what you think (thesummerlawns,com)
Thanks
Best/Phil

Barry, let me say that I'm PROUD to have you in my network!

Your profile shows a person who isn't afraid to face life's worst and conquer it.....

I hope we'll have lots of contact, and I can ALWAYS use help with Wordpress things!

Have an excellent Thursday evening.

Cool,...i will take you up on that.....starting right now....do you know what the exact ramifications are of using a word that shows up in JAAXY and KW seaching as <10. a lot of mine that i want to use in my about us page are doing just that. I know that when i come to typing up the cat and dog reviews i will have a much bigger selection but for the about us page i am really a bit limited with the amount of alternatives i can use....hope you understand what i am on about :-))

I would not worry about keyword research when it comes to the about me page. Write this page for your readers just tell them about your self
You get traffic through your content and people will go to your about me page naturally to check you out

Barry

T1967 Premium
Yeah, going to do that alright.....do you know what the <10 scores truly mean ? not just good or bad etc :-)) thanks again, really appreciate it :-))
Reply
bazboy247 Premium
<10 means very low traffic it means below ten so its not really worth using or bothering with < = less than symbol in mathmatics
Reply
T1967 Premium
Yeah i get that, what i mean is if i use it in the site and i have a load of other good kW in my reviews will there be any down side to the <10, will the rest of the good KW pull up the rating of the <10....sorry for not being clear, having website crisis...Support have been trying to sort it for the last 4 hours or so ......:-)) Can you hit the LIKE on my comments for me please if they are okay :-))
Reply
bazboy247 Premium
It will not do any harm at all to your site to use <10 keywords
Reply
T1967 Premium
AWSOME....thank you ...... :-)) that is what i thought but everyone else is saying dont use the words........thank you hun :-))

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.
