Hi

I am being asked to verify my website by Affiliate Window. I have verified my site using Google Webmaster, but I am at a loss as to where I can follow the below inst

Note: If you use option #1 as Loes suggests, be sure to keep a copy of the verification code snippet. Any future theme updates will overwrite the file change that you've made which will require you to re-edit the header.php file to insert it again.

Duly noted Bob.

Thank you for this vital advice.

Chris

Thank you

Will do

If you go onto an affiliate network such as shareasale and in their merchants type travel (or any other related words). Then you'll end up with a bunch of merchants and products ranging from travel insurance, travel maps, equipment, clothing. There's even a company that specialises in travelling with your dog. If you've rented a motor home then see if the rental company have an affiliate program. Same if you have bought it. Anything you had to buy in order to start out will probably have an affiliate program.

Evie, you a star. This is just the sort of know how I am lacking, so thank you for your time in replying.

Chris

I'm afraid I don't have any great sites to share, but two possibilities come immediately to mind. You talk about traveling in a motor home. What about products to make that more efficient, functional or comfortable? You also have 2 young children. I would think educational resources and supplies would be essential.

Thankyou Linda, your possibilities are now on the drawing board as we try and piece together our next steps.

Thank you for the link Derek, your help is much appreciated

Thanks, I will also look into this.

thanks for sharing that link, piper148. It was very helpful!

Both of you should check out a company called KHM. They are a travel agency that has an 'affiliate type' relationship with home-based travel agents. You own you business, but you participate in all the big booking programs through the KHM umbrella.

Sounds promising

Did you mean KLM?

No, KHM.

I'm in a similar situation. My blog is travel-related and I also have Amazon affiliate links and a WA referral banner. I have Google adsense but I'm not counting on that on generating income.

Found this link on MKearns Profile here at WA

http://www.freedomwithwriting.com/freedom/uncategorized/36-blogs-that-pay-50-per-post/

19 onwards might help with turning blog material into income opportunities for us.

Please remove your link.

You could also look into Patreon, I wrote a blog about it here:

I've removed the link, but left the title of the website. It would clearly be self-defeating to ask for assistance and not have a reference point for people to look at.

It's not a ploy to get more visitors to the site.

Thanks for the link on Patreon

You can place your links in your Profile, and if people are interested, they know to find them there. That's how it's supposed to work. :)

That makes sense and my sites are there, but I have three so need to be explicit. Just checking having the name without it being a link is within the rules.

Just wondering if this is something I should be happy with or if it is just some sort of natural occurrence that comes from searching google through my google plus account.

Congrats my friend!

Thanks for all the replies and encouragement. it does appear that chrome will promote your google+ posts to sit in the first page of Google, but only you see this.

THEREFORE always use incognito if your checking your site for page ranking

Many thanks

Congrats ... it is great!

This is an indicator of compliance and success with Google. Celebration is in order.

Congratuation for getting on Google page One.It means you have folloed all the suggestions to get to page 1

This may not be real, check incognito to be sure. Typically such G+ ranking is just the matter of what browser has in memory.

Checked incognito and as you say and I thought it appears the chrome browser promotes my google+ posts.

So I'll keep on going.

Good for you!

Congrats! Every milestone is an achievement. It will just add up more later. You should celebrate. Thanks for sharing.
