About ChrisTowers
Joined October 2014
I'm 46 and i'm English but I reside in Greece now .. where the sun shines. All i need is the security to enjoy it to the maximum and be completely independent.

Since moving here I have learned some of the Greek language and also speak German and some Italian!

My previous career was serving as a Firefighter for many years in the UK.. a career I loved and took great pride in. I love helping other people and being there for people in need. So for me it was a great career and it was an honor to serve.

I am an avid lover of playing the guitar and also like to keep as fit as possible. I'm a friendly guy and always will lend an an ear to anyone who wants to talk.

I hope not only to be successful here, but also wish to make friends for a long time to come.

Also if anyone is working on a project which is similar to my niche area feel free to drop me a line. I am always interested to learn and share ideas and help each other along!!

Thanks

Chris

Hi, Chris! I just enjoyed reviewing your beautiful site. I live just outside of an incredible travel destination, too, that I may decide to turn into a website niche, inspired completely by you. I love your site so much!!! What WordPress Theme do you use? It is perfect! I just wanted to stop by and say hello and thanks for the breathtaking view! To your continued prosperity!

Hey there and thanks so much ... I am happy you like my work.

The theme is a simple activetab theme .... So far I am happy with it and it is easy to use and navigate .. maybe in the future I will consider another theme which will give the site a more tourism feel to it .. I am not sure yet - working progress.

A lot of work has gone into it for sure... and I am nowhere near finished. Traffic is starting to flow nicely too so this is good.

Where do you live? I would be also interested to see some work from you should you make a site in a similar niche :)

Thanks for your kind words. It is nice to get a boost once in a while!

Hi Chris. I just saw that you are part of Bo's GoGetter group and thought I'd come and say hello and follow you.

I live in England (born and brought up in Austria) and my husband and I love Greece. Right now a bit of Greek sun and warmth would be very welcome... :-)

With lots of good wishes,

Thank you Isabella .. nice to meet you ...

Not so warm in Greece at the moment.. a little rain here and some clouds.. nothing like the big freeze I have seen on the news though!

Maybe in the summer ? :)

Great to meet you Chris! I'm new to WA and have been going through the training consistently, building up my first webpage, and meeting a lot of great people along the way. You had a good story in your bio. However, I didn't catch what your niche was...
How has time served your experience with WA, such as a few webpages or many after 3 years? I know I'll figure out a lot more as I move along the training, but was just curious if you choose to share. Thanks Chris and I'll look forward to seeing you around the WA community!

Hi Bob.. nice to meet you too ..

I am doing fine here and have built up a nice website.. I publish often .. at least one per week and sometimes more ... and I am adding new pages and posts all the time..

I have a set program here and i consider my website my job.

I dedicate every morning as 'work' and have one room in my house which i have made into an office...

Just keep pressing.. follow the training ... ask for help when you need it ... and more importantly.. work hard and be consistent..

You will do fine :)

Thanks

Chris

Chris, you mentioned in an earlier post that you deleted AdSense from your pages on your site. Can you point me to a tutorial to help me do that? They declined me for now, saying there wasn't enough content (I have 10 pages and about 7 or 8 posts)--but the code lingers and I can't figure out how to remove it.

Thanks!
Reply
ChrisTowers Premium
The code they gave to you... where did you insert it?... did you put is as a widget.? If so simply delete the widget and the code
Reply
jed2017 Premium
No, I don't think it's a widget. It's on the right side of my main page. Thank you for any help you can give me.

(in case you would like to look at the code: www.yourhealthyfam.com--main page)

ChrisTowers Premium
Yeah it looks like you did it as a widget.. so go into your wordpress admin... go to appearance then widgets... and in the right you will see it... delete the box with the adsense code... and you will be rid of it

goodsuccess Premium
Yes, it is a widget. Follow Chris's instructions to delete this widget. BTW jed2017 Google adsense wants to be sure you have good quality content before they accept your website. It's just of matter of posting more content and do not add any other types of ads on your site.

Put your privacy page in the footer of your site or side menu, not on the top menu.

So far have a good looking website just needs a little more quality content. Do not give up on adsense it works.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for the feedback and yes it helps me very much. As far as the alt on the images don't I just put that in where it says alt before I post the image if there is more to it than yes please send me the training link. The menu I will change and for a contact form do you know the best plugin to use for that and I still have not set up an autoresponder yet. I am having trouble because some are confusing to understand and I just want a free and easy one to set up. Thanks again, Chris you were very helpful. Have a great weekend :)

Hey Chris,

Interesting story of moving to Greece; where the sun shines, as compared to England I suppose.lol..Well I can relate I totally relish the year round sunshine as a Caribbean man..

Thanks for the review on my website. I take all of your advice..though I may have to check with you from time to time for some "know-how" to do some of the stuff you advised.

Cheers man. I will give you that follow..

Hi, Chris. Man wish I could move to Greece, must be nice. I want to, first of all, thank you for serving as a firefighter, That to me is one of the most honorable and respectful careers a person can choose. The big part is you choosing to put yourself in harm's way for people you don't even know. Again thank you for that. I, myself, love music too, I am trying to teach myself to play the autoharp. My fiancee, who passed in 2011, bought it for me for my birthday, I would sit and try to play by sound while watching him play the guitar. Those were some of the most fun and intimate times that are dear to my heart and keep me smiling on days when the sun doesn't shine, both literally and figuratively. Anyway thank you for your service and I am following you now. I know in my heart that someone that gives/gave so much will definitely prosper in this endeavor and environment.

Take care and have a great day.

Hi Chris, I have a question, I was reading your blog here: my.wealthyaffiliate.c0m/christowers/blog/question-on-alt-attribute-for-images-anyone-help-me and I see you have a backlink to your site. How do I have the same backlink to my site just like your blog post?

(replace c0m because I cannot send link)

ChrisTowers Premium
I do not recall putting a link back to my site within this blog..

I do not normally do it unless I need someone to take a look at something when I need advice!

But if you need to do it.. just copy the URL from the page you need and paste it into your question or blog...

Easy :)
