William, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything William.

Digital-photography-tips-techniques has these numbers
120 average /21 traffic /34 QSR/ 98 SEO
What are your thoughts on these numbers?

Morning,
I had registered
Digital-photography-tips-techniques.com
Then after your suggestions I am wondering if I should use
Besttipsondigitalphotography.com

Is the transfer of all the work on creating my site from one domain to another going to be complicated?
I really like your suggestion and am wondering if
Avg <10, Traffic <10, QSR 0. SEO 80
How important are these numbers in domain name selection.
Thank you for helping out
JR

The domain name carries little weight for SEO ranking. That is why you key only for visual value like I had explained. It is your title and description of you page that will impact ranking

Can we change the default height and width of the Header in the selected WA Wordpress theme (not the Header image to be inserted, but the dimensions of the web site itself)? Also I had selected a theme where the posts, contact, and archive are to be displayed on the right side bar of the web site but it's listing them instead across horizontally, at the bottom of the Front Page?
Reply
billyghawaii Premium
Today's websites are are categorized as being responsive.. Meaning that components of the website will shift and shrink according to the space it is displayed in. So what you think is exactly the way you like it in your display resolution will change when someone else looks at it in his/her computer display.

You can see what I'm talking about by going into WP dashboard / Appearance / Customize. On the bottom you will see three icons of displays... computer screen, ipad, smart phone. Click each and watch what happens. Alternatively you can physically change the the size of the window displaying your dashboard and see how the size changes.

Do you still think you need to adjust the header size?

If yes the here the CSS information you need:
https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_dimension.asp

And I believe you will need to enter the size information in window named Additional CSS just above the three display icons.

Thank you so much! The selected WA template was "Sticky" I think; so the sample template had shown/would display recent posts, archive etc as a right side bar
Reply
billyghawaii Premium
Yes... I'm sorry I forgot to tell you that some Themes are designed to be strictly nice for a given size... however, more importantly as one of the first things to do before you say this is the theme for you , is to see how it looks on iPad and smart devices... as many websites are discovered and worked via smart devices today, then ever before. Good catch

Good evening, from Califorina.... watched a few Youtube and there are instructions that are not matching up to my WA Wordpress template. Went to Editor in dashboard and don't see the name of my template in that CSS coding. I'm trying to align my Menus on the right but noticed on my Template sample, Menus are aligned left to right, right below the Header image I put in. I can't find where and why my Menus are all left flushed (see attached screenshot). Could you help...thxs
Reply
twrsaga Premium
....having my Menus locate horizontally across is fine too... Also noticed on my static Home Page, the Menu for "Follow Us! (twitter), Recent Posts, Archives, categories are displayed below my introductory writeup re my blogging purpose etc. The Template shows those also aligned to the Right, which is what I want. Do I need to create another "Page" in order create that Right sidebar column... if you could help, thanks again!

Hello Billy G from Hawaii and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with all your previous experience you will know that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck (which I doubt) then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Got one that you can help me with..

Someone mentioned having pages titled the same as blog categories and how blog articles assigned to that same category will appear on the appropriate page.

Example Pages
Guitars
Drums
Woodwinds

Blog;
Blog 1 cat: Drums. Shows up on Drums Page
Blog 2. Cat: Drums. Shows up on Drums Page
Blog 3. Cat: Guitars Shows up on Guitars Page

How do I accomplish this... it didn't work so I may be missing a step

Also posted on someone's training... then thought of the guru... I hope this is possible.

Have a look at one of my sites and see if this is what you mean then get back to me.
All those you see are individual POSTS in their own CATEGORY.
My Top Menu on the other hand has individual PAGES under an appropriate HEADING.
Remember the time difference for replies.

That is it exactly sir... I do see a mix of static and blog roll pages but just how did you put categories to pages? No worries, I don't expect immediate responses as the world turn and every one has things to do
Reply
Robert-A Premium
I did Not put categories to Pages
I put POSTS to Categories.
You have to understand there is a difference between Posts and Pages.
Will get back to you with a PM when I get home.

billyghawaii Premium
Yeah sorry wrong words... so I see basically that you simply posted the blogs into the category in the menu? I thought it was automatic when you name the page the same as the category. This way you won't have a full sub menu..
Reply
Robert-A Premium
No I did not post Blogs.
I placed Articles within Categories.
You have to get your wording right in your questions or you will end up getting the wrong info.
Will send PM asap.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hey William, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions William, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2017. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you William. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

Vitaliy

Thanks for the response and I'm glad I stumbled onto your website on youtube which is what I started to peruse after getting an email from Amazon Associates indicating that I had no made the grade for being a member... The thing that really bothered me is that I had accumulated nearly $10 in a few days then they cut me off... I was thinking I'm just one guy... times that by 1000 people in my situation and they are reaping the profits from our brief show online but cutting us off so that they don't have to pay for that little exposure... That would be greatly magnified by a million people in my shoes. Then I searched the web and found out people were losing big bucks in similar scenarios. I have a website at www. billygomban. com that I had started to use with Amazon.

Oh I see the WA Affiliate Program link on my left... which is one of my questions ... ha ha .. Aloha

VitaliyG Premium
Hi William, yeah Amazon can do this type of stuff, but you can re-register for them in the future. My advice would be to try and test out the training here on a brand new, free site WA provides.
