WA Affiliate Program
Updated

Hey All,

Quick question. I have a bootcamp site with around 30 high-quality posts (around 1800 words each) and on-page SEO in place. The site is fast and looks good.

Are you still selling your website?
Please send me the link. Probably, we could work something out.

Best regards
Maxine

See what the going rate is and I would bet someone here at WA would love to buy it. I might as I just don't have time to set mine up at this time. This is the busiest 3 months of the year for my niche. PM me a price if you would like and the url. I will take a look at it and maybe we can help each other out.

Mark

Thanks for your help Mark. I've PMd you.

Hey all,

I am a certified commenter with a 100% approval rate and 5% skip rate. Recently, I haven't been rewarded properly for comments left. Instead of the usual

Featured Comment

Hi Benjamin -

If you do not see a Red $0.50 label on the comment, then there is not a cash credit available. Currently comments are getting anywhere from 2-5x the number of comments and if this is the case, cash credits are not paid out. You will know before you leave the comment if you will earn a Cash Credit as you'll see the red label.

If there is no red label then that request for a comment has likely achieved it's required comments and is in the bonus.

Thank you, this is new to me too, just added your comment to my training Carson

Okay, that makes sense. It just seemed odd that for a while I was ONLY receiving these 'bonus' comment opportunities. I imagine it's something you guys intend to work on for the future, thanks for checking in.

Red label new to me also. Thanks Carson.

Thank you for the clarification!

Thank you for the answers. I like the cash credits but honestly, sometimes I think I should pay for commenting because I learn a lot at times.

I feel like paying to comment too I equally learn a lot from those sites. Life is definitely a learning process. Thanks for your sincere comment, my friend!

I was hoping with the new site comments 2.0, everything would be ironed out. Hope it is. Following the answers you get on this question.

Hey,

Just a quick question. I registered the domain of my site at the end of January and worked on it for a couple of months. I then took a break for two or three months

Benjamin,

I believe that Google uses the domain age so it would be the older. As Zsolt (smartketerr) said 3 months isn't going to make or break your site.

- Glen B

Sure, just didn't know if it would have an effect on the 'sandbox' effect (if it is a thing). Thanks!

Oh the old sandbox theory. Ok so let's just touch on that. When I first heard about this I was told that if you submitted your site to google you would get put in the sandbox.

Back in the day this might have been true. But today the bots search looking for sites with good content. If you offer good content they are going to put your page up.

Forget about the sandbox and concentrate on good content. You'll be indexed in no time.

What to get the bots to visit your site quicker?

Post on an authority site with a link back to your website post. You'll get indexed even faster.

- Glen B

Thanks Glen! Useful to know. I actually am in the middle of writing a guest post right now on a fairly authoritative site in my niche so hopefully it will help things out a bit.

Glen, Is that not considered spamming? Just wondering, Thanks.

Not if you are in the subject matter.

If you are on a golf site and you reply to a comment about golf and sent them to a diet site yes that's spam.

If the conversation is about putting and you send them to an article that talks about putting then no.

The idea is not to run out and spam. It's to find high traffic sites that you can add to the conversation and link back to relevant content.

What if you jump on facebook and say hey I just wrote a new article on putting. Is that spam? I don't think so because these people are friends and they might want to know about what your up to.

Hope this helps clear this up a bit.

- Glen B

Awesome and very helpful, sir. Good to know the difference!
Thanks Glen!

I would say 9 months old, Google would still have it indexed

That seems to be the consensus, thanks!

A 3-month age difference is almost irrelevant anyway

If you are talking about the same domain (I guess yes) and you haven't requested a removal from the Google index, it should be the older version

Makes sense. Google Analytics shows a complete zero traffic in those months so I assumed it had been removed from the index but I imagine it was because the site was down and so the tracking code wasn't working. Thanks!

You're welcome!
