Remembering 2015 and Looking into 2016 Thanks WA

Last Update: December 31, 2015

With 2015 coming to a close I am going to take this time to look back and give thanks to everyone who I have interacted with here on Wealthy Affiliate (WA) and say HAPPY NEW YEAR! I want to thank Kyle & Carson for creating this great opportunity for us all. WA offers more than just a way to earn money online from our websites but it gives us knowledge and that too can be turned into money not associated with our websites.

KNOWLEDGE IS MONEY

Though I was earning money online from other sources in 2014, I started earning monthly income from my WA website at about $68 per month. That is not a lot but I was just starting that website and it more than paid for my monthly premium membership. It was 2015 where it changed from $68 to several hundreds of dollars per month.

Also in 2015 I started creating training here at WA. It has been fun paying it forward with the information and knowledge I have gained from the training I have received here and from what I have learned from elsewhere online. One negative of 2015 depending on how you look at it, is that it will be the last year of my weekly Sunday blog Learning & Laughter. In 2016 I will be doing "Have Fun Learning" every first Sunday of the month.


THE LEAST POPULAR

Being that I have created a total of 31 training tutorials in 2015, many have had great responses to them and have had great interactions within the comments. I have often said that you can even learn fom reading the comments.

But there have been some training tutorials that have not received as much attention. Nathaniell once told me that I should do a blog on my top 10 training tutorials, so below are my top 7 least interacted tutorials, mainly tutorials with less than 100 comments.

Below are the 7 links with descriptions. If you haven’t yet viewed them, either view the ones you want when you get a chance, like tomorrow when recovering from your New Years Eve celebrations, or bookmark the training to view at a later time.

But regardless of what you decide, I wish ALL of you a HAPPY, SAFE AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

Hello! I just visit your site on legit jobs and no one ever explained affiliate business as well as you did! thank you so much....question:
In your successful experience here, (I am new!) would you say that by writing great content and lots of affiliates links I could make a full time income within first year? I loved the word you used AUTOPILOT....once i have great content i know....but that made me happy bc then I dont need to keep on writing over and over for blog to get ranking on google right? I am just not a writer.....thank you so much for your impute here...

Don't use lots of affiliate links, too many will hurt your rankings.

But if I have great ranking and not a lot of products (affiliate links), doesnt that defeat the purpose of getting ranked? or making money with the Affiliate links? maybe because I am new I am missing something here? thank you again

Google will not rank well websites with lots of affiliate links. They rank you based on content and want to see more content and less affiliate links. The more affiliate links you have as a young website, the more Google will see your site as a spam site.

I was away from wa for almost 2 years and one thing that made me still have "contact" with wa was your LOL.
But I absolutely believe your new one will be great.
Thanks for all inspire, you give Robert!

Nice to hear from you Robert. I know that life served up a major league curve ball to you recently, but I also know that you will get back in the batter's box and put one out of the park in 2016.

You are a valued member of the community and one of our best Trainers. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I expect to hear good things from you in 2016.

Spring training is just a couple of months away ... can't wait.

boomergp08 Premium
Yeah, that curve ball came out of left field and hit me good. Still recovering from the pain but like most things, it is getting better as time goes by.

Thank you and yes, can't wait for spring training to begin again.

Hi Robert, I have learned a great deal from your training. The best for me so far, haven't read all of them, is the one about Google Analytics. Best tip is the one about FETCH AS GOOGLE under the Search Console. Works like a charm. When I am done with a Post or Page, I do it like clockwork as you suggested and within minutes, I'm indexed and can actually Search for it. I check the first 10 pages and have found some of my stuff.
I have a question though: I have a post indexed and next day I add a word like FREE to the title, and have it Fetched again. Does that hurt ranking?
Thanks and a Happy New Year.
Rudi

It depends. It would more than likely cause a 404 error. After you publish content, you never want to change the title, that is not recommended. After your first publish is indexed, any changes will cause a 404 crawl error, even if you reindex, the old index is still there in Google's index.
Reply
rudog Premium
Thanks Robert. Won't do it again. I'll check for crawl errors tomorrow.

Since I'm relatively new (7 mos) I have not read most of these. I will be coming back to this because I have read some of you recent stuff and it's really good stuff!
Who knows, these could end up being the top trainings in 2016 after everybody reads this post!

Happy New Year,
Debby
