Many people are writing product reviews for their sites. It can be quite a challenge to know how much you should write, or whether you should actually try and sell the product.

I noticed that a couple of members have recently asked about what type of website bonuses they could offer. Ebooks are some of the most common bonuses but there are lots of other options you could choose.

I've compiled this infographic which I hope some people may find useful. You will need to do some additional research on

Back in October (2013) I came across a new member of Wealthy Affiliate who was frustrated because they couldn't access any of the videos on the Level 1 course because they were Deaf.

There was nothing I could say to them but I made the decision to start transcribing the videos and typing up the Level 1 scripts. A big thank you When I said

It can be a puzzle to know exactly how to pitch your 'About' or 'About Me' page. When writing you may want to consider the three following questions. Who am I? What can I do for you, the visitor? How can I be contacted? Be aware that when you're writing about who you are - readers don't want your life history. The focus should be on the reader. Shown below are mistakes that you should avoid making with your 'About' page. You can view the full-sized infographic here

It's not difficult to make mistakes when writing content for your website. Most of us make errors at one time or another, whether they be typos, language/grammar or punctuation errors. I know I do, even though I try hard to eliminate the most common ones. There are a lot of resources here at WA that can help you to improve your writing. If you haven't checked out Jackie's recent training on common punctuation, grammar and spelling clangers - do so. She has also created a great sequel: co

Deciding on a suitable niche can be one of the hardest things to do, especially if you're confused by the word niche. Kyle has just written a blog explaining what a niche is - and if you haven't taken a look - do. A Niche Is A Group of People Looking For Stuff I have only produced this post for people who are visual learners and may want to get an idea in a graphical form. Kyle's post is the business!

One of the most frequent questions I get asked is "What should I write about on my website?" Well you want to provide your visitors with content that meets their needs or their wants, or teaches them something or provides them with lots of useful and accurate information or solves a problem for them.

According to Jackob Neilson (famous for his research of internet users) 90% of users lurk rather than participate, 9% participate a little and 1% account for all the action. Now his research wasn't just looking at users commenting it was looking at all sorts of online behaviour, but it appears from these figures that it's a challenge to get people to comment. Here are some ideas to increase the number of comments that you're getting on your website. Remember this is not something that will happ
