I have spent the majority of my professional career in the Video Game Industry as a Quality Assurance and a Customer Service/Tech Support Manager. I have also been a Video Game Producer/Designer with several published games to my credit. I also have a part-time eBay business here in New Jersey only 15 minutes from New York City.

Though I will always continue with jobs within my experience I am also looking for a new career path because I am a person who likes to learn new things and new experiences. Making money online (as I've learned via eBay) is quite fun and rewarding if you work hard at it. So I am here to learn more about how to build a website by myself without having someone else doing it for me. The way I see it is, if you cannot build and create a website yourself, why bother having one? Where's the fun in that scenario?

Some of you who follow me here may have noticed that this is my updated Profile Description. I felt it was time now that I have moved up in the rankings, have several published blog posts, 3...well actuall 2 1/2 website and several Street Atricles that I should update my profile. For those of you just viewing this for the first time, hello! I enjoy helping many of the members here at WA, if I can. If I can't I can direct you to where you can get an answer.

For those considering upgrading to Premium, DO IT!!! You will not find a better education in website creation, keyword research, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), writing content, niche ideas, and so much more training and resources anywhere else online or offline for the same cost. Knowledge is power and there is a lot of knowledgable power that can be learned here if you just give yourself the opportunity to learn it and put it into practice. I am GLAD I did several months ago! Enjoy your time here! - Robert

Hey Boomer,

I have been kicking around the idea of setting up text links to Google Image result pages.

In my case, my visitors come to my site for specific information on campgrounds. I do provide links to the campground websites, but few campgrounds provide many informational images.

As you know, there is a treasure trove of images at Google, and they can be narrowed down, for the most part, to a specific business, such as a public campground.

If I were to provide links to the Google result pages for XYZ campground, do you think I would run into trouble with Google? I wouldn't necessarily use the word Google in my text links, but it may be as simple as "See more images of XYZ campground."

If you would consider answering this, what are your thoughts?

I do not think there would be a problem with you linking to Google images

Hi Rob.
I haven't made any $ yet but as you say be patient.
I have been speaking to a couple of people about what I'm doing and one has specifically asked me how much I would charge for developing a website for them. I have no idea really.
Would you mind telling me what you think would be a fair price to develop a website for a small business?
Thanks in advance.
Robert.

boomergp08 Premium
If it were me the final cost would be determined by how many pages and posts they want, plus other services.

That being said I would charge no less than $600.00 USD. That would be for the building of the website, a few pages of content and one blog post.

If they do not have a domain name already, then obviously you would charge them the full yearly price for the name. You will also want to charge a yearly cost for hosting.

If you are building the website here at WA, the domain name will be an additional $13.99 for domain and I charge $25.00 for hosting. That is cheap but it really doesn't cost me anything as a WA member.

Hello there Mr boomergp, Greetings from malaysia, I've thought my passion more on affiliate marketing and bootcamp. But I guess i should follow your advice not to go with bootcamp. Now am about to go through all your lesson. Perhaps you can tell me more why you not recommended with bootcamp sir. Thank you in advance.

boomergp08 Premium
The reason why I do not recommend doing Bootcamp first is because Bootcamp is about promoting WA as your niche.

Think about that. How can you effectively promote WA before you know how the training and resources can help any member to make money?

Do you think you can do an effective job at explaining to your website readers all of the benefits of being a WA member? You will have to be good at it because it is a very competitive niche.

I, like many other veterans here, have found it easier to promote WA once we have experienced success in another niche. We now know how WA can help people start an online business promoting any product.

I can see the sense in what you are saying. Thats exactly why I have put Bootcamp on hold.

Hi Rob
Can you help me
I just watched the video about choosing a niche and I need help
I understand your point to choose a niche that is an interest to me but what i need to start making money as fast as possible is a niche that 100% will make money and help me get off the ground and after that I can pick and choose on my own as i get more experienced.
But right now i need a solid advise which niche is hot and sells
off course good product with substential profit margin
I heard that Google has a tool called Ad Manager that helps you to see if your niche or keyword is popular and how many people are searching per day but in training video they did not mentioned.
Thanks waiting for suggestions
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The niches I list in the tutorial at link below, are all considered the most profitable niches. But no matter which one you choose, you will still need to find a related affiliate program that will pay you the highest commission. However before you can do that you have to build a website and fill it with content related to your chosen niche. This is essential because without it, no affiliate program will accept you. This whole process will take you several months before you start making money.

Hi Rob, just out of interest what did you see when you visited my profile?

I love cooking .. but is recipe sharing a niche .. or could it work? I have a passion for teaching kids how to reasearch .. because I have seen my own kids struggle with it, but is that even a niche ..? i love to type .. but how do you turn that into a niche?

I value your input, seriously. Heather
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The niches I had seen in your profile picture are...

Winter clothing accessories (hats, scarves and gloves)
Frames for glasses
Cosmetics

Cooking is too broad so you would want to narrow it down to a certain aspect of cooking. Possible niches could be...

- counter-top convection ovens
- non-stick cookware
- portable grills (charcoal or gas) perhaps even solar for those wanting to go green
- power air fryers
- cooking tips for grilling
- food storage containers

When looking at a broad niche, always try to narrow your approach down to specific aspects of the broader niche, just like I did above with the broad niche of cooking.
Reply
Fev80 Premium
ok, thank you .. will do a little soul searching and some research.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The reason why a niche can be practically anything is because there are millions of things (products, experiences, activities) that many people enjoy.

For example, Star Wars is a niche. How?

Because it has a fan base, it has products people can collect. The same is true for other movies and TV shows.

Anything that you enjoy that other people enjoy as well, is a niche.

Hey Rob, how's its going; good I hope. Listen, I've been with WA with about a year now and I chose the video game niche because of my love for video games along with other things associated with it. However, a reliable source informs me that you might have some information regarding video games.

Here's my thing, it was suggested to me that I'd get a video game store on my website where I can directly link it to my website and people can go on there and shop.

Basically a gaming warehouse where I can get video game product at wholesale prices and sell it on my website or however that's supposed to go but I know it would be a step in the right direction regarding my niche

So what can you tell me about that; what advice do you have to the regard? Get back to me ASAP

Thanks,

R,J.

Hi Robert,
We appear to have similar interests as I too thrived in Quality Assurance and Customer Service and chat support. No published games but I am a published poet and dabble in all writing genres whenever I can spare the time. As a work from home professional, and and top accredited free lancer, I generally have the pleasure of picking and choosing my assignments which is most rewarding though yet still working for someone else. Even when I make my dream come true here, I suppose, I will still be working for someone else because we are all working hard to make a better quality of life for those we serve. I will be watching the leaders here and learning from the success stories they share. My compliments on your updated profile. The success stories here will help to shape my future and I thank everyone for caring.

Hi Robert, as per Kyle training we are asked to open an AdSense account, I was looking to find a tutorial to implement their request to add their code to my site when I saw your post. My site is not getting lots of clicks and according to you probably too small to have AdSense ads. I almost don't have ads on my site but what would you suggest if I may ask? If I don't use AdSense at all at the moment should I keep the account open?
Thank's for your help.

Hi. Boomer. Is it possible to make your own video games yourself and still ca sell? Compare that to publish your own website, which one is easier for you in your opinion? Which one is more fun to work to work on? Which one could substain more return in the long run? How much about a comparision of start up cost and the time you will get return?

Websites are much easier and rewarding than video games. Less start up and operational costs, also far less stress.

Thanks for the reply. Lots of kids nowadays have interest to design their own games. Since you have experience in game industry, I just curious about how you say about game industry in general. Is the game industry still expanding? You see iphone apps are full of games!!
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The industry has stopped expanding for a while now, it has only grown in its diversification of game types. Some game companies focus on doing games for maybe one type of platform, like only smartphone apps.

The bigger and more successful company do games for not just smartphone apps but also PC download, online casual, Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, DSi,...

Because certain platforms require specialized software and hardware for development, it costs lots of money to create just one game. And depending on the type of game, it can take anywhere from 6 months to three years before a game is finished and ready for sale.
Reply
ewo Premium
Boomer. You really educated me. I didn't realize the time need to develop the game has to be at least half a year before sale. Compared to website publishing, there are members start to success after 3 months. It seems to me that sticking with WA wil get my return of investment sooner!

I have seem many games developed by individuals posted on the web but the time spend on finishing them is short. Many of those are adobe flash based, shared as a hobby, and provide free to play.

In my experience, people who can design simple game rules to start with and/or very proficient in graphics design with excellent user inteface seems to attract many players to try. For example, angry birds and cut the ropes are very successful in this manner.

Hey, hey!

Thanx for the follow back. So much to learn and so many members' posts to read... Whose idea was it that a day should only have 24 hours, out of which most of us only use 12 to 16.

For the first time in my 35+ years of being self-employed, I find myself NOT restricting myself to that handicap of time. I do it because I "really" want to have this all set up and generating at least a few Ks before I turn 100 (I'll be 66 this month) - What do you think?... Doable, if I keep putting in the time?

If you get a spare minute or two please check out my site and give me your most honest opinion (promise I won't shed a tear). PM me your site link and I will surely return the deed.

I thought about going to the community but I really need someone with good SEO knowledge to give me some input - before I give up!

When you say something to offer, do you mean like an ebook or a tangible product? And who would you be offering this to and under what circumstances? I don't see how this would enhance SEO.
Reply

Sorry that was really two questions. Yes I don't have anything tangible to offer like an ebook or product, which is what readers like and enjoy. I do offer my advice and the opportunity to purchase good inexpensive products. The second thing is around SEO and what I need to do to get my site up through Google rankings. My site is about skin care products and good foods to eat for healthy skin. If I do a search of my site it comes up with "Skin Food for You - Glowing Skin from the Inside", which really isn't a true representation of what my site is really offering. I have created a site map and also Meta Descriptions and Titles, and thought I was heading in the right direction.

I have gone into my banners and copied the HTML code and pasted it in the "Text" editor of WordPress and had no luck. I then added a Jaaxy image and tried to use my affiliate ID as a link and that isn't working either.

Hi Rob, I'm hoping that you will be able to assist me. I think I may have done something that can't be reversed. When I created my website on Wordpress, at the bottom of the Home page I added a title and description. Google has ranked the site and it is coming up 3rd on the first page. But, this of course is only when I type in keywords that I know. I need to change the title so that it is something that others would do a search for. How do I go about changing this or does it actually make a difference?

Hey Robert, And thanks for your reply. When I built other websites on wix or jigsy, you chose a template and then you could add content to the site. I chose a template but it doesn't open up to that page and I don't see how to add either content or pictures or anything.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The process of adding content and images will be taught starting in lesson 7. You will add this content within the WordPress editor in the WP dashboard area. But before you can do that you have to learn how to set up the SEO foundation of your website so Google can index you.

Okay. Now it's starting to make sense. In step four it said build your website and I thought it meant complete. Moving on to step five. Thanks for clearing that up for me Robert.

You are right Robert, upgrading to premium is the best thing one can ever do for themselves. From the time I upgraded, my business has grown and I have acquired wonderful knowledge I would never have acquired from elsewhere. Am becoming an expert here at WA.

Thank you so much for this post.

Hi boomergp08,
It is interesting your background is from the video gaming industry.
My website is coming from a point of view of an old kid (I am 61 years old) about video games.
I have been a premium member for over a year, but I have taken it seriously till about two months ago.
I am tired of watching my wife have to work to help make ends meet.
I want this to be fruitful so My wife and I can be free from going to a job.
I would appreciate any advice you may have.
If I can help you, please let me know.
Looking forward to getting to know you.
Thank you and My God Bless you for all you do.

Hi, Robert

First Happy New Year, wish you the best for 2018.

I have a question if you don't mind answering.
I know you've been selling online for a very long time now, it's why I think you're the right person for my question.

Yesterday I received an order from Amazon.com, the buyer bought one of my product, an Android TV Box, but he bought 9 Pcs of this same item. I also do wholesale as I work with a Chinese factory, but 9 Pcs of the same product, it's not very common on Amazon.
I was thinking perhaps it's a scam because I'm a new seller without any feedbacks. What worried me it's perhaps the buyer will ask for a refund and he can keep the products. Amazon has a very strong refund policy and some peoples will use this method to scam sellers.
I've also contacted Amazon, they told me I can choose to ship the order, but it's possible the customer will ask for a refund, it could happen they said. They also told me if I'm worried about the refund possibility, I can cancel the order, it will affect my seller account if I cancel, but a very small impact they said.

Telling the truth, I don't make money with this order, I will lose some money, about 10$, I made a mistake on the shipping process, but now I know how to modify that. The problem is not about the money, I'm willing to lose 10$ if this order goes smoothly. I'm a new seller and I just want to bring the best products and price to my customers, I want to do it in a long term.

I want to cancel the order as I won't make money on it and I have to put on some works to fulfill the order, but I was thinking what if the buyer is a good one, what if he really want to buy them without bad intentions. I know he probably buys them for reselling them back on other platforms.

What do you think?

Thanks, Robert.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
That is a tough choice. If I was a new seller I probably would cancel the order because I have yet to establish myself as a reputable seller. If I were more established with more money already made, then I would probably take the chance and do the order.

CalvinC Premium
Yes, I totally agree with you.

Thank you for your advice, it really helps me as I was worried about this problem since yesterday.

I really want to provide the best products and service I can offer, but I don't like peoples trying to scam me because I'm new, but I guess it's how we do business.

Thanks, Robert, it really helps me with my decision.

How will the price adjustment take place with the new Jaxxy? Do I need to do something on my end with their accounts payable dept? I'm currently paying the price of $49.00 being taken from my credit card.

Jaaxy Pro (without Premium) = $49/mth, $499/year

When using a computer and not a phone or tablet, click on the picture you want to download to your computer.

Assuming you have a Windows PC and not an Apple, while looking at the enlarged picture on your computer screen, put your mouse pointer on the picture, click your right mouse button, and then select Save Image.

So, at this point I have " built "website and am ready to start filling in the blanks. I still have not decide on what type of images to use.

Reply

I do not see the need to spend extra money for a keyword research tool when WA offers a free keyword research tool for all Premium members. Both the WA keyword tool and Jaxxy are programmed the same way by the same people.

The only difference is that Jaxxy offers more features. But the WA keyword tool has provided me with keywords that have helped me to get on Google page one more than 20 times. I see no reason to pay for Jaxxy.

You can almost always swap out a picture that comes with a theme. You just have to go into the Customization mode for the theme and change the header image by uploading your own that is of equal size.

You site looks good. The only things I would recommend you change/do are the following.

1. Include a Featured Image for all of your Posts, not pages. This will be the image that appears on your home page blog roll. Right now you have no corresponding images.

2. When placing images in your content they should not appear to the left of the content, only to the right and in the center. The left side margin should always remain constant with words.

You explain to your website readers how WA can help them to take any interest that they have, find associated products of that interest, and then become affiliates of the companies that sell those products.

Provide them with the information on how to join these affiliate marketing programs, what the commission structure is and how payment cookies work. Also tell them how they can search for affiliate programs on Google.

Basically give them as much info that they need to find a niche, find affiliate programs for that niche, how the programs work, and suggest possible products they could promote. Then direct them to WA to learn how to put all of this together.

Been off the screen for a while... trying to get back again...
checked your very helpful comments on some peoples queries...
On one you mentioned that it would be preferable to start on the " Getting Started" as opposed to the "Affiliate Bootcamp" one...
Although I have not asked advice in this area before, it is the first time I hear it. Your reasoning sounds very professional to say the least.
I have done the entire Bootcamp course in 2016 and took the suggested ten day break... only returning now to start all over again!
Then I saw your comment... AND I want to start making a bit of money!... my first goal would be to recruit at least three premium members... to pay for mine...
I want to get started on the "Getting Started" training... and am thinking of using Amazon as the company to promote.
Would you be kind enough to part with some of your professional advice here... it would really be greatly appreciated.
Thanx in advance

boomergp08 Premium
Depending on the niche you select you may want to become an affiliate of another company other than Amazon. Amazon has lower commissions than most other affiliate programs and their purchasing cookie is only 24 hours.

This means if someone clicks on your Amazon affiliate link, makes a purchase, saves it to their shopping cart because they are not sure what else on Amazon they wish to buy while there, and then pays for everything after 24 hours, you will NOT get the commission.

Hey Rob,

I know that attributing shouldn't be that complicated, but I'm confused a little.

Do I right click on an image, save it to my computer, upload it to my website media library and then edit and attribute like in your "How to apply attribution..." training, or will copying the HTML/BBCode in the text editor suffice for attribution?

And then the question arises, What about the Page URL and File URL links in the attribution portion of the website that you get the photo from? When I click on the "Use on the Web" link, it shows me "Page URL", "File URL", "Attribution" and then the HTML/BBcode.

Do I need to use all of those, some of those or none of those. I need some clarification so I don't violate copyrighting.

Also, I can't use a photo like this as Featured Image, unless it's in my media library.

Mahalo Nui Loa.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You are over complicating the whole issue. I would do it the way I described and then choose one of the links given for attribution. You do not need to use them all and frankly you have no way to do so.

Yes, your featured images are just like all of the other images you use on your website and they must be in your media library.

Why do you need the http to show for sharing your website? You can share it just like you did above without the http and still have it be a working link.

FYI, There is an image on your website that you cannot use because you do not have permission. It contains a company name watermark across the front which means it is NOT free to use.

No free image will have a watermark across the front of it. The watermark is there to tell you that it is not free.

If you found this image on Pixabay it is important to know that all of the images along the top row and sometimes elsewhere, that say Sponsored Images, are not free to use.

The questions I was going to ask... I have a couple.

You mentioned you've been in the industry for 4 years. What made you decide to take this route and how long did it actually take until you started earning anything significant on a regular basis?

Do you have any tips or advice for those who are just starting out (besides the obvious "go through the trainings")?

I was already making money online by doing drop shipping on eBay but I wanted to build my own ecommerce website and do drop shipping from that, so I could stop paying all of the eBay fees.

But once I learned how affiliate marketing worked and how many different niches I could promote, I decided to take on that challenge and put the ecommerce website on hold.

I made my first bit of money just within 6 months but it wasn't until about a year that I started making consistent income. So my advice to all newbies is to be patient and never quit.

Thank you for the reply. Very informative and great advice. I've read many posts that mention the same, to not give up. I realise this is a long term strategy, nothing can happen overnight and there's hard work and learning ahead to put everything together in a package. Got some decently sized Facebook groups and a few Facebook pages I have created over the years but couldn't figure out what to do with them, until I came here! Now I have a plan of action and can truly embrace sharing the information gained from my "job" into a scalable online business. I'm pretty excited to be honest :)

Thanks again :)

Hi Robert! I found your profile through a discussion about being an ambassador. I was positively surprised to find out that you have been/are in the game industry! I've been making games for a long time as well, programming, game design and some graphics as well. When working in small teams everyone gets to do everything over the years.

It was also encouraging to read that in spite of having rewarding jobs you still want to try out different things and ways to make money.

Hi
I am just starting out but have really enjoyed your training on using your WA blog etc. This might sound like a very silly question but is my post roll my blog roll?. If not, do I need to install something? if it is my blog roll, can I post posts that are not necessarily focused on my main website theme ?
Sorry to be a pest after your kind training but I cant seem to find the answer elsewhere

Hello MalachyDonne,
re postroll/blogroll

A Post roll relates to video ads. It is an online video commercial that appears at the begining, middle, or end of an online video.

A blog roll is a List of links on you blog.

You may find many approaches to you questionon Goople search.

WA is found on Google - Static Home page vs Blog roll.
You can also search Google for Post roll.

Just saw your question; hope this helps.

A blog roll is the area on your website home page where all of your posts are listed. This is the default WordPress set up. However you can change your home page to be a static page.

The link below is to my website and I have it set up to have a blog roll, consisting of 10 blogs per page.

Can I ask a question about the pictures from Pinterest.com. I have looked for the permission & Rules & Policy of taking the pictures as My own for my posts, but did not find any rules in the search engines, and I do not want to break any rules in pinterest.com to loose their association. Where can I find these rules of coping these pictures for my posts and in my content. I have been using their many different pictures for my posts as a rules, because I have not found any disagreements listed on how to use these picture?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
That is a tricky question but it is a general rule that pictures on social media should not be used on websites that you will earn money from.

Whenever money can be earned from a post containing an image that is not free to use, the original owner of the image could sue you for using their image without permission.

If you use the image in a blog that does not earn you money, you could possibly get away with it without any problems. But on the other hand, I wouldn't take the risk.

Hello, Sir.
I have a question for you:, if I may.
I wrote a post on my site; called it THE BEST DIET TO LOSE WEIGHT FAST.
On the Keyword T. the search for this title was showing 32,889 searches, a competition of 53 and an article power of 10.
Anyway, it didnt make 1st page!!!!
Why?
I thought that a title with those parameters would make the post jump in first or 2nd or 3rd page but NOTHING.
Can you please explained what happened?.
Thank you much
Best
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Having a keyword with a low competition does not guarantee you first, second or third page rankings right away. It could take weeks for you to achieve those rankings.

Ranking in Google is determined by your overall content, not based on a keyword. A low competition keyword will help you get better rankings but it is your content that is the determining factor.

Even if you were to rank based on a keyword with a competition of 53, you would not start appearing in the SERPs any higher than page 6. Then based on the quality of your content, you will go up from there.

Hi:
Im interested in drop shipping and have a question for you.
How do I sell a product on Ebay?
I have the product supplier and would like to sell his items on Ebay.
What do I have to do?
Do I need a website to start this business?
Thanks
Best
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
First you need to find out if the supplier offers drop shipping services. If they do you need to find out if the prices you will be paying are true wholesale and if the drop shipping service is free.

If they offer all of the above, they will provide you with product descriptions and images of the items. You take these and post them into eBay under whichever category you intend to sell under.

When your item sells on eBay you take the money your buyer sent you, pay the supplier the wholesale cost of the item and any other packing fees they may have, the supplier ships the product to the buyer, whose information you gave to the supplier, and you keep the difference in the money received as your profit.

There are no bots here. You told me that you received a reply from Site Support. If what you said was the case, then what was it that they said?

The problem you described to me has to do with SSL which is something many members do not know much about. I personally do not know much about it and do not even have SSL websites, don't intend to unless it is necessary.

If Site Support's answer cannot help you than why not try and set up a website that is not an https and is only an http? If the problem persists, then just try a different theme.

Hello Robert,

I am glad I joined WA. One of your ads caught my eye. I can't remember where it was now. At my age it gets harder every year to remember things. I am 70+ and have had heart surgery.

I've been poking around and working on Affiliate Bootcamp. I am a Premium Member for Life! My goal is to promote my WA link and not my own niche.

i can say that I certainly do appreciate the Key Word Tool training you sent me early on. I love that thing!

I will eventually work through all your 309 posts! Wow what a library! If you have a list of links for your training you have written, I would certainly appreciate it. If so, can you send it to reylonghurst8@gmail.com ? All this WordPress is a bit confusing to navigate sometimes!

These are two websites I have previously built from scratch for my almond business going back about 12 years. You can tell by looking at the source code that these are REALLY OLD web builders. Funny thing - I get sales every day from these two dinosaurs. Mostly repeat customers and customers who have found our products in grocery stores.
www.SproutedAlmonds.com 2004 - 2014
www.LonghurstFarms.com 2015 -2017

Here are a couple of questions that keep nagging at me. Hopefully you can help me get to the bottom of them.
1 - Does a L-O-N-G T-A-I-L name on a jpeg file help ranking in terms of content?
2 - I am concerned about linking directly to my WA Profile from my website (not the ones above), a new one I plan to build for WA. How does linking directly to my WA profile convert to a referral that eventually becomes Premium? It seems to me that the new visitor will just continue to use free stuff and not sign up. What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Rey

Hello Rey,

Below are my answers.

1. If the long tail word is a keyword it MAY help a little bit, but I wouldn't worry so much about it. You are mainly ranked by your entire content and not just keywords, especially those in the names of images.

2. There will not be a problem linking to you WA profile. I do it and so do most others. As soon as someone who is not a member of WA clicks on it, you will get referral credit if that person becomes a member.

You will only earn money $1 from that member if they complete their WA account profile with a description and photo. In order to earn monthly income from them, they will have to become a premium member.

Does that answer your questions?

Your website looks visually nice. The only thing I did not like is seeing an affiliate link so close to the beginning of your content. Affiliate links should not appear within the first third of your content. Google does not like websites that do this often.

Other than that one problem, your website is coming along nicely. Just make sure to provide helpful content and use your affiliate links sparingly. Your website should have a minor amount of affiliate links and lots of helpful content.

I'd like to know how to become a video game tester and possible producer (I have no tech related experience) however it's been my dream since I was a child, I'd run through games in a day on its hardest difficulty figuring out all types of challenges. A full time gamer completionist, and I could talk about games for hours on end with intense passion. I believe my place is in the gaming community I've just the faintest clue how to get started on that process.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You would first have to live near a video game company. Despite what many people online are promoting, real video game companies do not hire testers that work from home.

If you live near a video game company and you can get a hold of one of their games, test the heck out of it and try to find any bugs. Also try to come up with quality suggestions on how the game would perform better on whatever system you are playing it on.

If you can find any problems, video tape it and write up a detailed bug report, with the steps you did to get the bug to happen. One important part of being a video game tester is being able to write up a detailed bug report.

Once you have this bug report and a video of the game bug, if possible, send it along with a resume and cover letter to the video game company. For best results go to the company and apply in person.

Video game testing has hardly anything to do with being able to play a game to completion. Testing a game requires you to test different parts of a game over and over for hours, trying really stupid things to break it.

This is one of the main reasons why video game companies hire in-house testers, because they are not looking for people who can play a game to completion but rather test certain sections of a game before being able to complete it.

Hi Boomergp08's ,
I just read the other messages and I too am sorry you lost someone close... I have a bachelor neighbour Willie Clancy who's 80+ and it's funny as I live in a remote areas in the west of Ireland. (No broadband, I have to thether my phone now to work all gagets ..:)husband me and kids) in the house, no problem I'm soo techno now with WA.!The funny thing is my neighbour Willie starts his day with visiting me for a kiss on the cheek. (I must have nice cheeks ) but on numerous occasions his tractor has broken down at my door from using old diesel. I know to get a bicycle pump(from my career) to blow the dirt away out of the fuel tube (while I'm still in my dressing gown!! )and concentrating on all the WA lessons!! But you know what ..I will miss him and my crazy morning kiss as I know he hasn't much time left with me .
It's true on every factor here and in our crazy lives ..time spent is time gained.
Thank you again for your lesson to us all on the drop down menu , it gives me more time to spend with Willie one on one (and not be thinking of what I could do to figure it out).

What a beautiful experience and relationship you share with Willie.

I believe we rob ourselves of special blessings when we don't open the door the first time someone knocks. Maybe it wasn't convenient for you with Willie but obviously he needed your companionship and you gave him room into your life.

As stated, "It's better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all" . . . .

Thank you for loving Willie.

Hi...Robert, just like to offer condolence in the lost of your family member to cancer. I'd just like to share that recently I too was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. This past year has been challenging to say the least, but I'm back at work and feeling fine most days. Praise God for your healing, and hope that 20 years from now I can have the same testimony. We both share the same vision and mission to try and make more people aware of the alternatives to the standard cancer treatments, as well as some other common ailments. So hopefully we can contribute to making the world a healthier place by educating the people, and ending the senseless slaughter of human life in the name of profit.

All else looks fine. One quick question, I have a stack, 40, of Mother Earth magazines dating back to the 2nd issue, either 1970 or 1971, all in good shape with expected minor wear.

The Facebook Like button used to be on all WA screens and was active when this was created. But WA removed this button because many WA members were using it to spam Facebook with WA affiliate links.

Sell your magazines on eBay as an entire lot unless you can find that others are being successfully sold individually. If this is the case then sell the issues that are selling by themselves and then sell all others as an entire lot.

It may not be working because you are not using a domain name that is your own. Whenever you use a sub domain name like siterubix, you do not own that domain. You need to buy a domain in order to own it and this could very well be the reason it doesn't work.

I know it's been along time since your first website but I still have questions. I created my website already. I just need to add content into it. Did you add your content on the 4th lesson or did you finish first before you began to add content to your first website. The reason why I ask is because I still need to understand. So I would like input from the winners here in WA

I started adding content when the training told me to, which happens to be your "About Me" page. I believe that is in lesson 7 or 8.

Hello Robert, I was looking for an answer regarding effective use of WA Keyword Tool and I stumbled upon your training... it was very informative and straight to the point. I ended up reading couple more of your trainings :) Great job on those, and I hope to learn more from you. That said, I am following you.

Cheers,
Ken

Thanks for the follow, Robert. And thank you too for your really helpful and easy-to-follow training tutorials on how to use the WA keyword tool. I joined WA only about two weeks ago and am not quite ready yet to get into a paid subscription for Jaaxy (the WA premium subscription was already a big deal to me), so I'm very grateful for your tutorials on the WA tool!

In all the time I have been here I have never used the paid Jaaxy keyword tool. The free WA tool does just as good a job.

Thanks for the encouragement. I have tried other programs but was not successful. I don't know if it was me and my lack of persistence or lack of good training.

I recently became a premium member & love the ability to communicate with everyone. I hesitated to communicate at first, because I know so little about this business. But everyone has been so very helpful. I love it!

Rob I have just posted a question about how to find a URL ID. I am filling out an affiliate sign up program and this is a form required answer. Is this standard on all sign ups ? If so I need to know where to find this at. Sorry to keep bothering you guys

Hey Robert, stumbled into some training that you created, great information.
Thought you'd be a great addition to my network as I'm setting up a store myself.
I will have to check out some of your sites as they are of great interest, especially the one about cancer.

Take care,
Erin

Thank you Erin. I hope you enjoy my websites and the life saving information from cancer doctors and researchers on my cancer cure website.

Another thing I have heard that fuels cancer is glutamate. I don't know if you have ever watched any of the documentaries from TTAC? (the truth about cancer) very interesting series, I haven't had the chance to watch them all yet but it's sure eye opening.
I think so many of us have lost hope on "curing" cancer, we also don't look at the foods we are putting or not putting in our bodies and how they affect us.
Nature is so beautiful and intelligent!
Thanks for the awesome information.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Yes, I have watched the TTAC series and I even showcase on my website many video interviews of the same doctors that were in that series. That series motivated me to create my cancer cure website because too many people are being misled.

We were all born with the cure for cancer but people do not take the time to learn that cancer cells are a NATURAL process that occurs in our bodies everyday, yet is controlled and killed by our immune system.

If people would take the time to understand what I just said, they would realize like I did, that cancer is not as scary as we are told it is and can easily be cured and prevented by having a strong immune system. This is repeatedly mentioned in TTAC series.

You replied back about finding a niche that does not have to be on Amazon. I am stuck already need some help if you don't mind, Do I need to have a website set up before I look for a niche,I am completely lost at this point,even after looking and listening to the startup videos.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You do not need to have a website before choosing a niche. Lesson 3 is choosing a niche and then Lesson 4 is building a website.

A niche can be anything you know. Womens shoes, cosmetics, auto parts, digital slr cameras, lose weight by juicing, weight loss supplements, treadmills, yoga mats, puzzles for kids, arcade video games, toys for toddlers, clothing for children, discount family vacation packages, carryon luggage, Star Trek collectibles, Christian jewelry, homeschooling lessons, ways to ease stress, essential oils, oil diffusers, wedding supplies, counter top convection ovens, coffee grinders, and practically anything you can think of that many people enjoy doing and partaking in is a niche.

Do you drive a car? Cars are a niche. Do you have a smartphone? Smartphones are a niche. Have you ever purchased vacation travel packages? That is a niche too.

What do you like to do? Do you have any hobbies or any knowledge you can teach people? Those are niches too.

Thank you and I am more than happy to tell the world that there has been a cure for cancer since the beginning of time. The only problem is that the cancer industry doesn't want people to know about it.

Rob, your cancercure site is superb. The photographs are bold, and the white space gives it a clean look. As a cancer survivor and one who worked endlessly to save my wife - she lived 4 years after a stage 4 bowel cancer diagnosis, I know the importance of looking outside the square of conventional treatment. I do wish you well with it and thank you for the excellent thinking that is coming through from you on key topics such as SEO and keywords.

Thank you Allen. I hope that the information I provide from the certified cancer curing doctors by way of their video interviews, as well as my opinions and story of what I did to cure myself naturally of cancer 16 years ago, will inspire others to learn the truth about cancer and the cure that has existed for thousands of years.

Where are my Referrals going?
Just as I started my bootcamp I decided to post some of “my WA links” on a page I had specifically created for this purpose on Facebook. I realized movement on my “my stats” soon after and was pretty chuffed and motivated. I have had 1 referral confirmed, and all that’s showing is 1 click on “Clicks Content”. So where is that referral? And what does “Clicks Content” stand for?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Clicks Content = how many clicks you received from people clicking on the WA affiliate link you shared. Seems like you got a referral from that one click. Consider yourself lucky if that referral decides to go premium.

Hello, Sir:
Im wandering what happened to you ebay course. it looks as if you stopped at part 2.
And I wanted to ask what you think of Bay Profits Academy a new app that lets you set a ebay store that will not require any traffic cost.
It was positively reviewed by Brett Ruteky recently.

Hello,

My name is Jordan. I am just a few days into my online marketing training with Wealthy Affililate and loving it! I just read your article on the MOBE Scam and it was very well stated. I looked at them over a year ago and after doing research I knew it was a scam from the beginning. That's what lead me here after a year of searching and trying.

I now have my Framework for my website built, my about page done and privacy as he generic format. Would love to connect and share ideas.

Great meeting you Robert!!

boomergp08 Premium
Congrats Jordan!

If you need any ideas I offer many in the way of helping other members to build a better website with most of my training tutorials. When you have some spare time read some of them. I try to explain things in a simple way so that complicated things will be simplified.

Hello, Sir:
I have a special enquiry for you as you seem so versed on the keywords subject:
I want to find what all the possible existing keywords related to my search are. I mean ALL.

What is the best tool to do it: WA keywords, google keyword planner, or Jaaxy?.

And how do you do it?
Thank you much
Best
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
That could take a very long time because a keyword is not just a word or words that describe a niche but are also questions people would ask about a respective niche.

So to come up with all keywords you would have to find all direct and indirect niche specific keywords, then related keywords, then indirect related niche keywords, then questions people would ask about all of the keywords you have just researched, etc.

Personally I do not see the benefit of finding all keywords because knowing them all is not going to improve SEO as much as just writing helpful and engaging content. Keywords do play a role but are not the main focus for better SEO.
Reply
philaccardo Premium
Thank you.
I agree with you.
But the reason I asked is related to CPA work, and the keywords you provide in PPC campaign. I think that the more keywords you provide to the campaign,the higher the chances that your ad is clicked by searchers the net.
So, if you provide that campaign with ALL the keywords related to you keyword then everyone searching the net will see your had and you will have more chances.
So I would like to know precisely how to find all direct and indirect niche specific keywords, then related keywords, then indirect related niche keywords, then questions people would ask about all of the keywords you have just researched, etc.
I guess it would be a time consuming work if I tried to do it (as I tried) with the google keyword planner. Im wondering if theres a software which will allow me to do it fast.
What do you think?

I do not know of any personally. I guess you would have to search Google or perhaps ask Kyle to see if he knows of an all inclusive easy way to accomplish this task.

Hey Boomer, So a few weeks back I read your blog about how to actually see the exact search results in Google, the one where you said to see accurate results I got to go to the last page and then we can see how many search results are in google for that term, which was a live saver because I was very confused.

My question is for 2 of my posts I saw where they rank, but one of the posts I went page by page (were 14 pages in total) and I didnt find it, do you know what that could mean? Is it not indexed by google (I checked the settings, SEO Plugin has it indexed, but any ideas why it I am not able to see it?

Thanks in advance.

It could be that it is not ranking for the keyword you searched for.

Thanks for the follow back. Found you after reading the informative Keyword Tool tutorial you wrote. Thanks for that!

I came from the video games industry as well. Hardware mainly, but we published a few titles in my days there. Rock Band 4 was the most recent.

Good to see a fellow gamer here. I used to spend lots of time playing them but now they're a way to reward myself after spending time building my business.

Cheers!

You are welcome.

I don't play games as much I used to. Mainly the apps of games I have on my iPhone or NDS.

I still have many friends in the industry but I am definitely retired, unless someone needs something tested. That I wouldn't mind doing again, but the design and producing...I'm done with that. :)

Can you identify your proudest gaming accomplishment? Some retro titles are so hard! Never could get through Battletoads.

Beating Tyson in Punchout circa 7th grade still takes the cake for me. Used to beat him on the regular but now can't get past the first round. Even the formerly easy ones like Sandman and Super Macho Man are tough.
