I'm Carson, co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate...nice to meet you and great to have you here within the community :)

In a few words I'll give you a little background about myself. I've got a Computer Science background, and that's where Kyle and I first crossed paths. I love to learn, and I love to teach. My father in public and private education and my mother taught youngsters her entire career. I followed suit by creating a community here at Wealthy Affiliate where we focus on teaching folks how to leverage the power of the web to create Internet businesses!

I got my first Computer in 1994, and since then technology has always sparked my interest. Kyle and I created Wealthy Affiliate to bridge the gap between education, social networking, and technology. We're a small tech company (in a sense) with big ideas!

You have come to Wealthy Affiliate to learn about Internet marketing and how to build an online business. Kyle and I have a combined 26 years experience with Internet marketing, starting out independently before joining forces in 2005 to create WealthyAffiliate.com.

You'll find me here in discussions, in Live Chat, and within my profile helping out in every way I can. It is my goal to help absolutely everyone who is serious about building an Internet business.

When I'm not plugged-in I'm travelling, spending time with my family, or shooting hoops!

You have made a great decision to be part of our community, and I look forward to getting to know and work with you!

Good Morning!
As I check my WA every day it would go right to my profile page, but in the last two weeks when I open it up I get this:

Oops, we couldn't find what you are looking for. We've been notified of this error and are working to resolve the error
Click here to go back

I have now click on my profile on left side to open it up????
I have tried logging out and then back in.

It would sure be nice if my profile page would open up automatically when I open my WA in this new WA?

I am having a few problems renewing my domain name within WA.
I have tried on 4 separate occasions this month (3 via Paypal and the most recent one with my card) but each time I try I receive an 'error' message within WA.
I have contacted both Paypal and the bank that my card is with. My bank assures me that they are accepting the payments but unfortunately they are refunded each time I have tried to make a payment.
My domain name 'expires' on 31st May and I definitely do not want to lose this or leave WA! (I want to stress this point to you?!)
I am going on holiday a week today for 2 weeks and would dearly like to have this 'issue resolved' before the month is out.
Kind Regards
Derek

Hello Carson thank you for taking the time to get in touch with me. I am just going to be honest I really don't know what I am doing at all . I have a few good ideas for online business but even with your site being pretty much step by step I still am not sure what to do next . Maybe this kind of thing is just not for me or maybe I just need pointed in the wright detection Thanks for your time

Hi Carson,
Have a quick inquiry on the choosing a niche, prior to advancing any further in the training.
I currently have an online business which is part of a large group of global distributors 70-90 k (not all of them utilize the online business model) I want to be able to help these individuals that want to enhance their online presence.
I have reviewed many systems in the past 3 years and out of all that I have explored I feel that WA can and will benefit any of them that will take the leap of faith and examine what training WA offers to any online business owner not just affiliate marketers.
So I am thinking my niche will be all online business entities this will include affiliate marketers, network marketers, and private business owners. Do you think that, that is too broad? Or should l just stick with the network marketers that I am currently affiliated with? So to break it down, the niche would be "INCREASING WEBSITE TRAFFIC": this in turn should obviously increase sales. Which the WA training has many great suggestions for doing both! Let’s face it this is one of the biggest concerns of all business models online, theoretically when traffic coming to the website is increased sales should increase accordingly!

Hi Carson my website was originally on hay to feed guinea pigs and this is the name I have for the domain, but realised it was too narrow as I could not write enough about it. So I decided to go onto guinea pig care in general, where there is more to cover. Is this still ok as a niche and with the name I have.
Reply
Carson Premium
Guinea pig care is certainly a niche Eden, it's more broad than "feeding", but I think the topic will be relevant to those looking for info on Guinea pigs. You could organize your site into categories like "Feeding", "Housing", "Cleaning", (you can likely tell I'm not familiar with these little creatures lol). You could start with a section dedicated to feeding - I think that your domain makes sense and will allow you to expand into other relevant topics as well.

Thank you Carson, the categories is a good idea and I will look into doing this. I have now completed 13 posts so I will arrange these into categories. I appreciate your reassurance that the niche is fine.

Hey Kyle. feeling a bit stuck on creating my website name and my site's title. I have it as dreamcare and I go to make a Google search for the name "DreamCare" and it's evidently taken from other places.

What should I do here?? Would this mean I have to restart a new website again and change the name??
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Isaac, in order to rank for specific keyword you need to have content is is related to that specific keyword. There are likely millions of websites out there with the word dream care in them. So, you likely won't rank for that specific keyword, not until you have some content that Google can rank. As you start publishing content you're going to be able to check Google to see if it is ranking. We have tools hope you do this, but the first thing that you need to do is to start publishing content. In course two of the online certification training group of courses, we did you all about publishing content and how to rank in Google, bing, and Yahoo. You are not doing anything incorrectly at this point, you're just getting started!

Regarding my Privacy Policy in my website freewebsitesinwealthyaffiliateonly.com I have complied with your Blog's directive to replace it with GDPR modified version and before publishing it to my website I have trashed the old one and later published GDPR modified version. I have a problem the new Privacy Policy cannot be seen in my website but it is stuck as a page in the page menu of my website's dashboard from where I can view it funnily in my website. How can it be made to appear permanently in my website.

Hi, I am trying to become a Premier, I want to pay by PayPal. The form is asking me to supply credit card details. I am happy to do so, but the security number on the back causes me a problem, I have checked with the bank, they say nothing is wrong. Why do I need credit card details for PayPal anyway?

Hi Colin, you do not need a PayPal account to upgrade to premium here at WA. On the payment page if you choose the credit card option you can answer your Credit card details directly.

Second question is why is there a monthly subscription fee for $49? If I have to, is it just for the extent of llearning to apply what is taught? Would I not learn the opprtunity to grow my own online business and make a full-time career for years in my own terms?

Hi Carson! I'm in the website builder making my first niche site! 12 high fives all around! Question: When you choose a theme in the website builder, how much creative control do you have over the photos in the theme? For instance, if a theme has a picture in the background of a swan, can you replace that picture with one of a dog from your own photos? (as just an example) I am a premium member, if that makes a difference. Thank you! I'm looking forward to input on this, as I'm eager to select my theme!
Reply
Carson Premium
SWEEET! Great to hear that the website is up and running. With your website, you've got full control over the look and feel of the theme. You can make tweaks to the theme if you're comfortable doing so, but there are 1000's of themes out there that you can choose from. My suggestion is to find a theme that fits your needs perfectly. But yes, if a theme has a picture of t swan, you can ABSOLUTELY replace it with a picture of your dog. WordPress websites are very easy to tweak and customize :)

Hello Carson,
Thanks for the warm welcome greeting.
I’ve heard a lot abt online marketing and see many kinds of advertisings abt it.
I wanted to try but hesitant to do so.Afraid as well.
But by surfing and researching I fell in one of positive testimonial abt WA,
I said why not try right?
I’m new to this so I will need a lot of support from you and the community to learn everything ,
Warm regards to all!

Thank you very much for the warm welcome Carson, Am just getting started here and know very little about network marketing, However it is something I have wanted to do for a long time now. I chose your site because I believe that you believe as I do that if you are honest and help people get what they want and need then through the trust that is established you will get the things that you want and need. I must confess that I am realizing that I do need some help here. I want to first start by being a WA advertiser and am having some trouble getting this set up right. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You Very Much, Joe

Hello Carson,
Thanks for the warm welcome. I am looking forward working with You and Kyle and all the WA community. I've been with the internet since the days of it being bulletin boards basically all text and before PC's, mainframes and punch cards. WordPress has always been my preference of choice for CMS. Been with it since the beginning. I now need to desperately learn how to market what I love to do which is the niche of various plugins and the benefits of them. I'm excited to learn and look forward to reap what I've sown.

Maybe you can help me work this out when I click on my Login now button to go to my website I get a blank page, It seems to try to open then rerouts to a blank page. I was told to go to support to get them to fix. But only people who have upgraded are able to use support. It is there any way this can be reset soi can finish my site without upgrading to the premium package.
Thank for anything you can do. Rick

Hi Carson, how are you? I will ask my question again because for some reason I can't see your reply to my original comment, although I did get a notification that you replied (not sure if you deleted the comment by mistake)...

I was doing lots of PPC via google in the past until they closed my account together with 10000's of other affiliate accounts. Then I moved to bing and run many campaigns with them in the last few years successfully.

I saw the message that Kyle wrote several months ago about Google allowing to run affiliate ads again on their AdWords platform and wonder if Google really allows bidding on product and review keywords again if sending traffic to landing pages on my websites (not direct links to the sales pages).

I am talking especially about clickbank and maxweb offers.

What do you think? It will be great to hear your thoughts.

Thanks :)

Hello Carson,

So nice to hear about you and your family. In addition to working at the post office full time, about 7 years ago I obtained my associates degree in teaching and also my real estate license. Both fields have helped this non computer friendly idiot learn how to navigate and woohoo, copy and paste. Working with children today has been a definite eye opener. They are so blessed to have technology taught to them in school, unlike our generation. I am hoping that I can go even further with your company and you can help me learn much more computer knowledge to become more successful. I am excited and look forward to working for you.

Dear Cason,

Firstly, thank you for your kind offer to give me a hand with the google of things I don't know about Digital Marketing.

After a great deal stumbling, at this hour I am happy to let you know that I have published my first website using your stuff.
www.goodsami.com
Please have a look at it and your feedback will be highly appreciated.

My first question is:
How do I get to link this page to Wealthy Affiliate?
So I could direct some guys towards WA site. There are some friends who are asking me how to learn about things that I don't know.

Other than that, It has been a good day and a great experience to put together this one today.

Regards,

Dear Bro,
From my personal perspective which at the end of the day is the only one I can live with, whether right or wrong, I think that it is important to separate our emotions from whatever this computers and "technothings" do or don't do.

There is a guy known by the name of Ramananda, all I remember about him is that he was suffering a great deal of pain due to Terminal Cancer, when one of his disciples walked into the room and found him smiling and happy, the young visitor said: "Master, I thought that you would be suffering so much pain"

The wise Master replied:
"My son, Pain is inevitable, unavoidable, suffering is optional, it is up to us, we can choose what to do with our pain".

If instead of pain we are facing computers, it could be easier to decide not to suffer too much.

With all my respect, I hope it helps to show you my side of the coin to avoid suffering too much.

Hi Kevin,

There is no time limit on the starter membership here at WA. However, you have about seven days from the date that you join to continue communicating within the community. Being able to ask questions, get help, and interact with others in the live chat, is only available for the first seven days of your membership. After this you will need to upgrade to premium to be able to continue engaging with the community. However, your website will remain open and you can work along at your own pace indefinitely.

Hope this helps out and I look forward to working with you :)

Hello, so glad to be in a community with so much support finally and not just a community trying to sell to you all the time. Ive been tossing and turned recently as I want to create an affiliate catalog style website similar to the 'thisiswhyimbroke,com' site. I have a fully made shopify store 'origin-ecostore,com' but to be able to design in in a way that I can link to an affiliate store will require hiring someone to code it for around $150(AUD). I would however need to hire a wordpress designed to also help me achieve what I'm trying to create which would be around $300. Do I get rid of my shopify store and start again fresh using the services of WA or do I try and run what I've started and then expand using WA? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What I need is someone to just guide me to getting this started, I have so many great ideas and drive but just not the knowledge of the how to get the ball rolling.

Hi Clare, really nice to meet you! We have so many work from home moms and dads here at wealthy affiliate who are building online businesses so that they can stay home with their families. The great thing about building an online business is that it allows you to take that business anywhere that you have an Internet connection and a computer. I am a parent of two young children as well, so I know how important it is to be able to be with them and work from home. You need to get up and running, and to build an online business of any size.

Hi Omri,

In the recent months and year, Google has been quite lenient with their ads in comparison to how strict they were in the past. Obviously, add approval comes down to the quality of the landing page and the ad itself, however, our findings are that there has never been more opportunity in paid ads within Google ad words that there is right now. So, getting back into Adwords may be something to consider. Click bank offers and seating ads that directly link to affiliate links is still probably not going to work very well. Google needs to see that the landing page is highly relevant to the ad, and that the quality of the website is going to provide their users with a positive and engaging experience.

Hi Carson, how are you? I was trying to get a reply from Kyle regarding an important question I have, but several days were passed, and I still didn't hear from him. It will be great if you can reply me about this one:

I was doing lots of PPC via google in the past until they closed my account together with 10000's of other affiliate accounts. Then I moved to bing and run many campaigns with them in the last few years successfully.

I saw the message that Kyle wrote several months ago about Google allowing to run affiliate ads again on their AdWords platform and wonder if Google really allows bidding on product and review keywords again if sending traffic to landing pages on my websites (not direct links to the sales pages).

I am talking especially about clickbank and maxweb offers.

What do you think? It will be great to hear your thoughts.

Thanks :)

Hi Carson,

As I was doing the training course and buy my own domain. I waited for a few minutes and saw that its on the list on my website list in WA. And so I click on it out of curiosity and excitement and it leads to a page that says something to do with warning and privacy so and so. I didnt read in detail cause I was in panic and just click back.

After that I continue with the training course and transfer my site from siterubix to the domain I just created. Everything seems to be normal during the transfer.

But since it shows that notice about privacy and warning. Should I be aware of something? or is this some kind of error? or dangerous thing?

Thank you for hearing me out. I hope to hear a reply from you soon.

Hi Winda,

It doesn't sound to me like there is anything to be worried about here. Most likely you had a warning because air is simply an image or a link on your website that is linking away to a non-SSL secured website.

With that said, I would have to see this morning in order to give you a better idea of what this is.

Hello Carson!
I hope I'm not being too much of a nuisance, but I want to cancel my WA monthly subscription but I don't know how.
I would also kindly ask you, to please refund my subscription for the month of May.
I bought the first month of subscription (19$ with discount) just because I was curious, but I do not plan to work through Wealthy Affiliate. Also I'm a student, so 49$ makes a huge difference for me
I will be happy to get any kind of answer
Have a good day

I make a web portal for selling cheese, people can choose a country for the cheese and from there select a cheese maker from my website (no cookies) they put the order in the basket and pay, after the payment is complete the system sends the order with the money (-5% commission) to the owner of the products. I think this must be possible to build or construct.

Can u pease help me with this idea..
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Bas, creating a cheese website sounds very interesting, something that I would probably love in fact! You could certainly do this if you were to use an e-commerce plug-in like WooCommerce. However, you could also get started doing this as an affiliate so that you do not have to handle Financial transactions, or any product. You can create your site and have information about all different kinds of cheeses from around the world, then send people to affiliate programs where they can buy the cheeses. This is where you would earn a commission. I would start there before investing in building out a full e-commerce website where you're handling Financial transactions, credit cards, and sending money to vendors to ship products.

Hope this helps!

Hi Carson.

I am glad to have come across your company via GlobalMoneyLine and I think it was worth it!

I am a novice in this whole online business and I am trying my best to do something that will help my family and I, though not yet marry but on the verge of doing so at my age. I know it may sound weird, but that is the true. I am happy to have you as a friend, mentor and can I say a brother because someone who is entrusted in your well-being and success is not just a friend but a brother. I greet you and your family and please say hi to all of them.

I don't understand the whole W/A stuff so please, I will need a lot of help from you bro., I would like to upgrade to the Premium status but I do not have ATM card as almost every payment online is via the ATM System, either a VISA, Master, Paypal, etc. The means of transfer that I have access to right now is either MoneyGram or Western Union, how can you be of help to me here bro.?

Thanks for stopping by today and I will be glad if you will truly help understand W/A.

kind regards,

Hi Azariah, really great to have you here or wealthy affiliate, I'm glad you found us. In order to upgrade to premium you will need to have a credit card, or PayPal account. We do not accept Western Union or MoneyGram unfortunately. I will be certainly more than happy to help you out if you have questions or need any help with the training. The first couple of lessons explain exactly how everything works, so it's just you start there.

Dear Carson
I am hoping you help me out this, mess I'm, in. This is the problem. I have been trying to reinstall my web site for a week (I felt the first one was poorly written). Now when I go to re-insert my content. I am told the website already exists. I have depleted the web page from WordPress, and from all the templates as well. I also deleted the privacy page because I got the duplication warning. It was never given me the options of checking the two boxes shown in our training session. I have deleted the site from WordPress as well. Now WordPress is giving me a warning message that someone is trying to hack my page(I know I must be the Hacker) and will not let me into WP even with my password. By site is called wildbirdscarehousingandfeeding.com, and I am using the Hiero theme. Is there tech support that can tell how to wipe my slate clean, and state over again? Further I'm getting serious Error message of :

I asked this question in the getting started area, but one member suggested I contact You and Kyle direct as you are the ones best advise me - I Know this is not a get rich quick scheme and I'm here for the long haul now that I've found WA, but as of yesterday a Joint Venture I was going to enter into is not now going ahead, this means I need to start generating an income of at least 3,000 by the end of July, or else we will need to sell the house. Is this possible and what is the best route to take? I have all the time in the world to work on this several hours a day and am currently working through the initial training (Task 8 of 10) but need to know what is the best ( and profitable ) way to go to achieve my 3 month deadline?

Hi Julie, obviously I am not Carson or Kyle and they will reply as soon as they are able, but since I saw this I had to reply.

Of course anything is possible and dedication to time and spending money on advertising in the right places for the right best customer for you will generate results faster if done properly.

It has been my experience that a business built on ethics the right way online will take several months from the time of starting training to have results. This is by no means the be all end all. Some people come here with experience in online marketing and are able to ramp up quickly and even start making multiple 4 and 5 figures per month, however this is not the norm.

I am not saying this to discourage you at all. I strongly promote a never give up mindset. However I am a realist and I have been trying to learn this for several years before coming to WA.

You are in the right place here. There are all of the tools and training you need to start, build and run a sustainable online business. It will however likely take more time than you need to get to where you need to be financially.

I am a franchise broker/consultant and I teach people the realities of business ownership then help them find a business that aligns with their skills and budget if they decide they still want to own a business after an honest self assessment.

I am sharing this to help you understand that I am not just blowing smoke. I have been self employed most of my adult life and I have helped many people become business owners. I am familiar with just about any business model and the time and money it takes to start any business.

My home based franchise brokerage took me 14 months from the time I started training to earn my first placement fee. It cost me my living expenses and business operations for 14 months before I had a sale, and several more months to break even and start to profit.

There are many businesses that generate a profit much faster but they also take much more money up front to start.

You may consider getting a part time job for a while so you can pay your bills. Continue your training here, do not give up on your dream of becoming self employed in the online space. If you stick with it, follow the steps in order and ask for help, it will happen for you in time.

If you would like to read some articles I write on business ownership, visit my website. it is full of good and true information. I am not selling anything there. It is for franchise seekers, and it is my way to promote WA to people that are ready to commit to learning with the understanding of how long it might take to build an online business.

I hope this helps you. I know it is not what you wanted to hear, but that wouldn't really help you anyway.

here is my website if you would like to look ctheadquarters.com

All the best

Hi Julie, really great to hear from you I'm glad to hear that you are going to have quite a bit of time to invest into getting started. There is no way for me to estimate when you will begin to earn revenue, as it all depends on your website and whether you are ranking in search engines. However, the second that you build a website and start to publish content you can begin to rank, and acquired traffic that site. Once this happens you can put your affiliate links in front of your audience and begin to generate revenue. There's nothing more to it than that. Keep in mind that it does take a few months to get your website too a point where it has enough content they can attract an audience. You need visitors in order to recommend or sell products to them.

Generally speaking, it may take you longer than this three month period to generate a consistent $3000 per month however many people have done that in the past, some even sooner.

Here is a great blog post that I think you should read: I Hope this helps and I look forward to working with you and following your progress :)

I hope you see this here. The system does not allow us to send a direct private message to you or Kyle anymore. I sent a message last week regarding new membership to Kyle and have not heard back.

I have someone that signrd up for a free membership and has decided to go premium and is not concerned about getting one month fro $19, he would like to pay for a yearly membership at the discounted rate but it doesn't seem to give him that option.

Does he have to start with the discounted month and wait for an invitation to go annual?

He has tried messaging a couple of times with no response and now I am having difficulty getting a response.

Please advise.

Thank you

Hi Simon.

I'm not Carson but I can help with your answer. Congrats on your referral, BTW!

Yes, he needs to sign up as premium member first for the monthly option. Then he will have a month to upgrade to the yearly, before he is charged with another monthly rate.

By design, you have to sign up as a monthly premium member before you take advantage of the yearly premium offer.

Hope this helps.

Hi there Simon, yes the new platform doesn't allow you to send private messages to Kyle and I. The past week since the launch of the new platform has been incredibly busy for us and I do apologize if him or I have not got back to a message from you.

In regards to signing up for the yearly membership, this person that you are referring to can joint for the $19 first month discounted price. To take advantage of the $19 first month price, and the yearly price, they would need to wait until the first month is nearly over before upgrading to yearly. Many people do this however, many people simply go yearly right away as well. The $19 first month option is only available when paying month-to-month.

Here is the link that will show both the monthly and yearly options:

Thinking of upgrading to Yearly but trying to wrap my head around why consumers would buy a product from an affiliate link on a blog when they can go straight to the product website and purchase. When I research a product I want to purchase, I read all reviews but when I'm ready to buy, I go to that products website. (Amazon.com/Walmart.com/HSN.com,etc.) I would never make a purchase from a blog or review page. Just trying to understand the percentage of people really buy from affiliate links?
Reply
griego62 Premium
Hi danielan77. As I understand things, when one clicks on the affiliate link, he/she is taken to the site selling the product and payment is made there. You have nothing to do with the transaction. You simply provide a shortcut (link) for people to go to where the product is sold. Hope that helps. Wish you luck.
Reply
danielan77 Premium
thanks - I understand the process. My question was why would someone click on a link on a blog when they could go directly to the actual product website and purchase. I have learned however, that due to "cookies", even if they research on my site, then click off my site and go directly to the product website, I'll still earn commissions!
Thanks again

I dont work a 9 to 5. So now Ive got the best of both worlds. Im going to park myself here. And maybe click funnels. I was with russell before. But got distracted. I may start again. He has a good program there to. But I want to be closer to making mrtoney before I safter thattart that 14 day thing. becouse after that. he is expensive. But worth it. AMAZING wants a little of my time. But I have to put a limit on it. becouse I need to focuse on one thing at a time.So I dont get lost. So you will be seeing allot of me. I have made my choice.Its time for me to go for it.And im glad that I wound up here. I made the rite decision. You guys are great. Thank You. Keep it up.

Hi Lawrence, Great to meet you and I certainly understand that you're in a hurry to get something up and running that is generating income. In order to generate income on line you need a website, this is the foundation of your online business in its how you connect to potential clients who are doing searches in Google, Bing, and Yahoo search engines. The second that you have a website set up, you can begin getting ranked and indexed in the search engines. however, you're going to need to start publishing some content in order to connect with potential clients who are interested in what you are promoting. The getting started training is truly your best place to get started and you can find it here: In listen two of the course above, there is a video about how to make money online, this should answer some of your questions.

Hope this helps,

Hi James, within any niche online and there are literally thousands and thousands of different things that you can write about. The key is that you know what your audience is looking for. Still have questions, they will be looking for information on certain products and services, they will want insight into the niche etc etc. Try to step into your visitors' mindset, if you do this you will have no problem coming up with content to write. When people on your website ask questions are leave comments, you always want to get back to them. This is an opportunity to further educate them and provide more relevant content to your article. As long as you write your own content from scratch, it will not be duplicate. Duplicate content means an exact copy of something.

Hopefully this helps, but I do suggest going through a course number two of our online certification training which speaks to creating content, ranking, and driving traffic to your website.

This is such a great platform. Am wow’d that you have done this. I recently lost my job and was earning a very healthy salary but wasn’t happy doing what I did so the time has come to figure out a new route . I am a hard worker and passionate in getting things done. Just not sure how to start.

Hello Carson,

I am excited to be a part of this community now. Wonderful to know that you also have a background in Computer Science, I am currently working as a Data-warehouse Architect and now looking to embark on my own journey here as an entrepreneur. Hoping to gain something from here to build a solid foundation for my online business.

Looking forward to work with you and the community at WA.

Best regards,
Usman

Hello Carson, thanks for following me everything is really new and sometimes overwhelming like this: Now that I watched the video about building a website, I have some questions and really I need some 1-2-3 (in Layman's terms) answers, because I am "NOT" fluid at "Computer Tech" Langues.
So here is my Question(s), I have a Website and a Landing Page for my eCommerce affiliate Business, how/where do I put either or both?

Hi Fred, great to hear from you and I can certainly help out.

A landing page is simply a page on your website just like any other page that you send traffic to. If you could explain what you mean by a "landing page for my eCommerce affiliate business", that would be great. Just want to make sure that I'm offering you an accurate response so knowing a bit more about what you're asking will really help. With all the "lingo" related to websites, let's make sure we're talking about the same thing.

Cheers,

Carson

Hello Carson,
A picture is worth a 1000 words I would love to let you
look at my Landing Page and that would answer all your
Questions much better then I could, to bad (for me) that
as a free member I am NOT allowed to put a link in my
messages. So I am up the Creek so to speak.

Although I'm new to Digital Marketing I've worked in the computer industry for 30+ years and am totally excited about your company and the opportunities that this technology opens up to average people. I look forward to talking with you more as I gain more knowledge in the field.

@Kyle Hi Kyle,
I sell teacher resources on Teachers pay Teachers and I want to do it full time. I've made some sales, but none for the last month. I haven't long started, so I know I haven't done too badly to have secured sales early on. My work is on Google because TPT is, but you can't find it without knowing my name, but it is there, I guess our stores rank because TPT has ranked. I am hoping that a website, even if only a small one, will help drive more traffic through to my store. I was wondering, will my website be easier to rank on google, if it is linked to my TPT store through a click through link? Not sure if that makes sense, I don't understand too much in depth, but I know getting sites ranked on google is hard. I never got ranked at all on my last site and heard that how old a domain name etc and keywords help. There were so many factors. So, if it was linked to something already on google would it work? All I know is, despite this, every person that is successful on TPT has a successful blog and it is ranked! How do they do it? I worked hard on the website but didn't anywhere last time. They all seem to work as hard as me, and get the results they would expect from it. I have only ever got that with TPT sales, never an independent website. Sorry for dragging on with this. Any help you could give would be appreciated. Cait

Hello Carson.

I have a question.

My privacy policy page is published in my word press editor and i followed the instructions from the video.
But for some reason it is not visible like on your video example.

I have to type in the search box so it can be found only there. Im using Ad-Mag lite theme.

Thank you in advance.
