Yes. You read that right!Neil Patel's traffic dropped and his expectation is that it may drop some more after the July 2021 part 2 core update.Why should that bother you?Well, apart from being a dominant authority who the world listens to, he is a Content & Affiliate Marketer, like you and me.

Google is at it . . . again!Our friends at Google started to roll out their Broad Core Algorithm Update on 2 June 2021. It was supposed to only one core update but my understanding is that they could not get everything ready in time for June.So . . . lookout for another core update in July 2021.

What an amazing journey the past 18 months have been!It still feels like yesterday. The time starts to sink in as I review my progress this month to make sure that I am being true to my vision and mission.Getting to this juncture has not been easy and I do not expect it to get any easier for a while yet.While my efforts are always being redirected, my focus remains intensely connected to my horizon.From Ground-Zero to 5-Digit IncomeLike everyone here, I started at ground zero.Wealthy Affiliate

574 days since joining Wealthy Affiliate (WA), I have FINALLY completed Affiliate Bootcamp training!This was tough!Similarly to completing the Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) training, I took my time. Areas that I did not understand, I researched and learned from others.I do not plan to begin Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaigns until Q4 2021 or Q1 2022 but I have studied and internalised the training well.The most critical thing for me in the first half of 2021 was launching my YouTube (YT) C
