If any of you promote Wealthy Affiliate (WA) then you probably have heard people ask, is Wealthy Affiliate worth it? Being that I am the author of this post I am not going to come out and say yes, oh well, I just did, but I am going to say why it is worth it and I want you to comment why you think WA is worth it.


TRAINING IS THE FIRST BEST PART

As some of you may know I write content for other people’s websites and the other day I was on one of my favorite freelance websites looking for new writing gigs. I came across a couple of ads from startups looking for a blogger/content writer. In their list of requirements I on occasion will see things that I know are old SEO techniques thanks to the WA training.

For example I had seen a writing gig posting the other day stating that they wanted a writer that understands creating backlinks and using keyword density. Even though I am looking for another writing gig to fill in some recent freed up time, I will not write for someone who wants outdated SEO practices.

Keyword density died in late 2013 and the majority of backlinks a year later in 2014, but there still are a lot of people outside of WA, and a small percentage within WA, that believe keyword density and backlinks still matter for better SEO. But if you just follow the direction and training of Kyle and Carson, you will see they do not promote either.

Below is my training about why Google does not consider keyword density anymore. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/latent-se...


COMMUNITY SUPPORT IS THE SECOND BEST PART

Another reason why many of us can say yes to the question, is Wealthy Affiliate worth it, is because of the supportive, educating, and helpful community of seasoned members. Paying it forward as Carson said in his blog back in October 2013, is one of the many reasons WA is the best online community for those who want a successful future online.

Through the use of WA Blogs like this one we can reach out to all WA members, both those who follow us or not, and help to enrich them with our knowledge. Being that these blogs are indexed into Google, we also can reach people outside of WA and give them a glimpse into this great online community we call home.

And on that last note you can now tell the outside world why you feel that Wealthy Affiliate is worth it. Worth it to be a part of the best and most up-to-date training in everything having to do with internet marketing from Kyle’s training, Jay’s live weekly classes, Carson’s technology blogs, and the member contributions through the OEP (Open Education Project).

Not only is this blog going to be indexed into Google but I will use it as a link within an upcoming blog on my website, so others can hear from all of you as to what you feel about Wealthy Affiliate. So tell the world below in the comments about your thoughts on WA. Do you feel that being able to have basically everything you need to run a successful business for less than $50 per month worth it?

I had no experience online at all. When I first came across WA, I read all the pages and saved the files in to my favorites. I am still looking and searching for more information. I saw a lot of informations about making money on the internet. Most of them worried me. How can you know nothing and yet earn money online? So i went back to my favorites files and clicked the WA file and read it again. I felt this was more realistic and without delay signed up to start my learning journey. I then immediately become a premium member. I am very pleased with my decission. Thank you WA, I am very lucky. If I had not gone back to check the WA file I would be lost. I feel sad for people who suffer on the internet. They sign up for wrong programs - lose money, lose confidence and in the end they give up. I would like everyone to know WA.

I know that feeling. Most of the make money online programs do not offer any valuable training that you can apply elsewhere on the internet. But the training and support here at WA is like no other. Unfortunately when many people see posts on social media or online they think WA is another scam. Too bad for them because this is the real deal. If WA wasn't as good as we know it is, it wouldn't be 11 years old with over 230,000 worldwide members with many like myself who have been a happy member for 3 years and more! And all for $47 per month! No one else even comes close!

When I was looking for ways to make an income online, I found a review about WA while researching another opportunity. After reading that first review, I just kept coming back and finally signed up. I definitely think it is worth it and the two reasons you gave are a big part of it!

They are the same main reasons why WA is a big success and why members who are serious about building an online business remain as members for years. Nothing else this comprehensive is available anywhere and for such a low price.

I have not been a part of WA for long but I agree with your key reasons WA is worth it. I spent much time looking and researching "online opportunities" and "ways,to make money online' and WA is the best by far I found to date. It can be overwhelming at times because of the abundance of good information, training, programs, and etc. It is easy to get lost when starting out. That is not a "bad" thing , rather a luxury to have access to llifetime learning

My liking (a very deep liking too) is that so much information is here. And if it isn't someone, including Kyle and Carson, can supply the rest. I just make sure that my queries leave no guess work as to what I want. (At least I hope that is so.) Because of this all the pressure of making a success of myself is my own responsibility.

Being clear in the asking of your questions is just as important as asking them in the first place. With all of the different ways to get help here at WA, it really is a pleasure to know that help is not far away.

When I am getting to know other business people who are in their first year to 2 years developing a business on line I ask if they have a blog. They all do. I have spoken with people who know about WA and will say it is a good program but their blog is somewhere else. I have spoken with an occasional person interested in possibly starting a blog and I educate them on WA and they go someplace else. I like it here and I find it very difficult to get help unless I am private messaging someone and I have stopped doing that for several reasons. I pay my $47.00 a month for the access to the wordpress templates, training that is available here and superior hosting services and I often think ok is there another way that I could do my sites and make the money go further and reality is I am afraid to take a chance and find out. I get a sense from people who have their sites elsewhere and are no more educated that I do not seem to think they are missing anything by not being here or just being where they are at. It frustrates me. It also frustrates me that if there was any training on how to choose a domain in order to brand ones self I missed it. Learned the term "branding" and what that was about outside of WA and now I have an understanding of why I could not figure out how I was going to connect the dots between what I was being taught to develop a blog to a target audience and the domain I picked which is geared towards what I wanted to sell rather than what I wanted to provide to an audience that would lead them to purchasing from me as a result of value provided and trust gained. I totally missed the boat. Totally. And i have this great domain that I am pretty sure can be used for an ecommerce site without blogging. I have seeen sites in my niche that have no blog but just sell products. And that is not being taught here or at least so far that I have come across. Granted I have not taken advantage of much of the education here. I got refocused and went to work and ran things by Kyle and I still do not have have things on track. Need to buy at least one new domain. And it has been suggested to take my 3 areas that can be one audience and break it down more. I went back and ran it by Kyle again a way to tie the 3 potential audiences into one audience. Been 4 days. I go to him because he has offered and because he collects my $47 a month. Been 4 days. I understand . He will respond as soon as he gets to it in order of recieved on the big picture of his to do list and in the same time he would respond to any other member. I am not paying for one on one mentoring. But I the meantime while I finally got the motivation I am in limbo. And at square one. And having to go back in and scrap all the work I have done for the second time.And I have this domain and I do not have money to buy another one so I need to do what the domain does which is a product sales site not a blog. So really other than the exceptional hosting I am under the perception anyway that I am totally on my own. Not to mention not alot of luck with promoting this and no way to communicate with any of my few people who signed up to support them to go forward. Yeah a blog may be a better way than to just send people to the link through advertising the banners but the main site needs to be the funnel so I can bring people into WA and be able to at least eat while I build MY business, Not WA's. I am not interested in writing bad reviews on other businesses in order to convince people to join WA.Was a point in time I was sending enough traffic to the main link that I should have been getting 3 premium members a month based on "the numbers game" They are getting to the main site and not signing up for the free membership even since more info has been added for people to learn about us.Seemed logical in the beginning to blog to bring people in. But I have learned otherwise. If I need to build my own funnel then I should not need the main website. Again maybe I am missing something. I want to build lead capture pages and funnels.Can not find info on that here.Thanks and any feedback from anyone is appreciated

As you have said, "Granted I have not taken advantage of much of the education here." That right there is a big problem. There are so many little pieces of information in the training and if you do not take advantage of it you are short chnging your chances for any kind of success.

I have gone back a couple of times and have redone the training at certain parts and it has helped because I always find something I missed the first time through. Blogging is important because the more you write, the more Google will be inclined to rank your website content higher if it is quality content.

Maaking our websites user friendly with small paragraphs, lots of images, and making it visually and navigationally pleasing are other factors that Google looks at for ranking purposes. If you think there is a problem with your website either look to see if it is that and/or submit your website for Site Feedback.

If you need help ask the community by posting a question in a classroom, or use live chat or write a blog. There are many ways to interact within the community to get help and feedback. Relying solely on Kyle for answers is not a good thing, and I mean no disrespect, he is just so busy.

Wealthy Affiliate has been one of the most rewarding communities and training that I have ever been a part of. I have not only learnt how to build my very first website without knowing anything about it before I started to bringing in an income every single month.
Wealthy Affiliate has also played a huge part in my personal life. I finally feel comfortable where I am at, I am loving the training even nearly 3 years on. I have made some wonderful friends and am pretty sure I will be sticking around for a long time.... :)

I look at it rather like buying any commodity. You look at the price and ask yourself "is it good value?"
I haven't reached the dizzy heights of getting an income from Internet marketing but I consider the cost of membership of WA good value for just the learning experience and the huge reference data base.
Great blog.

There's nothing online this kind of community where you can talk live to members, nothing you can find that when you need help, instantly in a matter of seconds, it will be answered, live training by one of the successful, every Friday at no cost, the different blogs of members where one can learn also, real success stories of members who are already earning beyond goals which serves as an inspiration to others, what more do you want?

I believe WA is well worth the investment, you can spend more on a college course.

Here we are very much hands on and learning by experience, we have 24/7 support,
A like minded community who are happy to share skills, inspire, support and step in to help you along the way

I also like the transparency of the program costs there is no constant up sell's and the training is as set out

It is for all levels from the novice and the more experience always something to learn or improve upon

Great blue print to build an online business or improve your current business

I agree Cathy. Unlike most of those other less than clear programs, there is great transparency here. Either Free or $47 per month. Try learning and achieving every thing we do here in any other program or college for $47 per month. It would never happen.

WA is worth it because:

> The training (and what is/is not working) is very current thanks to Kyle and a growing Army of Advanced WA members willing to speak up (like Robert, aka boomergp08)

> The supportive WA community is second to NONE. It took me a while to understand what Carson meant about "paying it forward", but the concept is embodied in our WA community

> Of the honesty and high integrity culture Kyle & Carson have built into this entire training platform. Sure it's not 100% at times (it's the internet ... need I say any more?). It takes a little time for some new members to get the message.

> It's world class for someone seriously interested in an OnLine Education to acquire contemporary, applied digital skills.

A round of applause to Kyle and Carson for being so altruistic.A special thanks to Nathaniell whose website led me WA. I accidently clicked on his website when I was about to give up on internet marketing for good.

PS A special thanks to WA members who unselfishly give their time answering endless questions.

Hohoho Robert, if I wasn't such a cynic I'd say that my reply to your recent keywords training has prompted this blog!!!
Seriously though, Wealthy Affiliate never ceases to amaze me when it comes to value for money.
Less than 50 bucks a month, and even less with the annual option, is an absolute steal for anybody who wants to learn how to properly create and build their own online business.
Not only the corporate training and education that the company supplies but the almost unlimited amount of supplementary training, information and support from members of the community, who are only too happy to pass on their own expertise, is without equal in the industry.
When you also factor in the inclusive hosting (try hosting dozens of sites elsewhere for less than $50 a month as well), and the technical support that we also get, well, it's a complete no brainer.
So forget franchising, forget a brick and mortar business, forget slaving for the man for 30, 40 or 50 years of your life.....get your own fully fledged Internet business off the ground for less than 50 US dollars a month, you know it makes sense.
Great blog Robert!
