They call me James...James Beam. The username is a pseudonym.

But, you can call me Jim. Just please...please...don't call me Jimmy.

I finally left the business world and now, I am trying to be self-sufficient as much as possible...promoting relevant products in that endeavor.

I've been adding affiliate marketing links to the Product Reviews section of my website and, I'm currently adding content and images to enhance the visitor appeal. I'm getting ranked in Google but, for the most part, it's at least a page or two away from where I want to be. I guess I'll keep adding to the 200,000+ words of content and 170+ pages and posts I currently have and hope Google starts seeing me as a mature website soon and rewards me with PAGE 1 status on all my pages and posts!

Any website feedback (by private email) or helpful, organic comments (on my website) that you offer will be reciprocated in kind.

My website is listed on the bottom right of this profile. I will be honored to have you check them out!

Thanks, for taking the time to read my bio!

Hi Jim. I knew you looked familiar, I've seen you on Pixabay looking very dashing in Pezibear's photostream. I use Pixabay for stock photos and donate a little to my favourite photographers.

Small world right. I take it this is you, unless it's not really. I read your site a bit and it looks like you have an amazing life in the country. All the best from here in France.

Hi, Jim.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Community. I am very pleased to make your acquaintance and look forward to learning a bit more from you regarding the perfect vegetable garden.

I started some gardening this year and things are going quite nicely for a novice. I am enjoying the experience.

Where I am in Southern Ontario, it seems that we only have two types of weather here over the last ten years: Hot and Cold. And completely unpredictable. We had an ice storm in the middle of May this year. Go figure.

Newfoundland is still seeing snow right now in the middle of summer.

I am looking forward to visiting your site. Would you like any comments or suggestions done directly through your site or would you prefer they be done through the platform here?

Let me know your preference.

Again, the pleasure is mine.

Paul.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for following me I see you joined about a month before I did. I'm following you back.

We'd better be following each other after what we went through! Oh that Gutenberg will give us sleepless nights at first. At least the issue got resolved this time and hopefully there won't be anymore.

Wishing you success with WA :)

Hi Patsy,

You're right. After what Gutenberg put both of us through, we are definitely destined to be following each other.

:-)

Best of luck promoting your website! By the way, why don't you include your website in your "follow me on" section on your profile page?

I used to have it there along with my social media but had to remove it for safety reasons. With a community this massive there aren't the nicest people at times. It got attacked and I was without it for weeks.

There are alot of members that never bother to post it to be careful. We don't 'have to'.

You have point there. I think, based on your bad experience, I will remove mine, too. I don't need my website messed up for weeks at a time.

Take care.

Hello Jim!

Thanks again for following me back. Very nice to meet you.

Have had a look at your website. It looks great, filled with valuable information. I haven´t come as far as you, but finally I have finished my redesign and starting the second year motivated to work hard for success. I´ve got a health niche and I have just listed my website on my profile page.

Looking forward to networking with you.
Wish you the best of success.
The gardening season may come.

Hi Pernilla,

Thanks, for taking a look at my website!

I've had a hard time trying to keep my publishing frequency at 100% because, I don't want to just throw articles out there. I want them to be helpful, thorough, and well thought out.

And, since I have chosen a fairly broad niche, I've still got a long, long way to go.

Your "Easy Steps For Healthy Living" website looks very neat and organized - and it contains a wealth of information. You must be very proud of it!

I feel that soon - both of us will achieve the success we are looking for with our online business endeavors!

Hi Jim. I just saw a comment of yours and thought I'd come by and follow you. (By the way, my email notifications stopped too. I changed my email address in my account and they immediately started again.)

Will no doubt 'meet you again' in WA Land...

Best wishes,

Thank you, Isabella! For some reason, after I contacted SiteSupport, the email notifications started coming to me again. It must have just been magic because SiteSupport said that they could not find the reason why it was happening and didn't make any changes.

Hi, nice to meet you! I love your niche!

We are in the middle of reviving our garden, here. We've been slowly building veggie boxes to raise our produce higher off the ground from our marauding dogs. We were inspired by pictures of online wooden palette projects. I know, a cliche, but they're free and so readily available here!

When those are done we have to pace the garden and measure out a design for a DIY watering system - parts to be ordered online.

Then we plan to clean up the pathways with a DIY concrete path mould.

In-between all these things, there are many other to-do lists, but our first point of advice and ideas for fixing things in the our garden has been online, and on sites like yours. So - thanks!

That is a bit strange since my website is secure (HTTPS). I just tried it on Firefox and it was working fine.

Wonder what caused your visit to my website on Firefox to misfire?

Doubly strange, since I can’t replicate the error on my phone! Perhaps it was only a fleeting issue out backend...?

Good afternoon Jim,

Reading your bio I see you would like Google to see you as a mature site. When I look at my Site Health I see I am on 60% Trust, I think that is quite good.After some months I went .com and then one starts all over again with all these things. I once read that if one makes 10% per month one will be 100% by the end of the year.
Where are you? am curious to hear.
I always say this to new people I meet. Have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, there you can find amazing documents which are helpful in writing posts.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

Regards, Taetske

Hi Taetske,

I'm currently at 70% Site Trust and in the next week, that should go up to 80%. I try to keep all my other numbers at 90% or above. Right now, they are at 100%.

The Google Search Console...Search Analytics...is showing that, for 30 keyword combinations, my pages show up within the first 4 actual Google Search pages...with 10 of those keyword combinations giving my pages either first or second page status in a typical actual Google Search. Of course, these are "averages" over time.

When I double-check the validity of these keyword combinations in my own manual actual Google Search, I find that these "averages" are sometimes not even close to being true.

So, I have learned that, in the Google Search Console, the "Search Analytics" numbers should be taken with a grain of salt.

Hello Bob and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined back in February you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything 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 follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Jim,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi B.....,

Sorry, I only see the first initial in your name. You might want to add it to your Bio.

Hey, thanks for the follow. I'm the same as you. I haven't added affiliate links yet. I have a go-to list of affiliate products, but I'm focused more on providing as valuable of content as I can right now to build up an audience. I think that is a wise. Otherwise, we get distracted.

There 's a great community here. I hope to see you around in the conversations.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for checking in. I'm moving into lesson 8 tomorrow and, looking at the last two lessons overviews, I don't see any references to "how to add affiliate links to my website"...once I have some substantial content and some traffic.

Is there a separate video about adding links from affiliate programs that I sign up for?

Thanks,

Bob

magistudios Premium
Hi Bob,

This is actually within Course 3, Lesson 4 (Adding Affiliate Links to Your Pages).
I've attached a screenshot for reference.

The reason why this lesson is 'far down the line' is because we want folks to focus on building content and rankings BEFORE adding affiliate links.

Regards,
Jay

Hi Jay,

Thanks for clarifying. That leads to two other questions:

1) How many courses are in the certification program?

2) Are all of the courses available without the premium membership?

Thanks,
