WA Affiliate Program

Hello WA family,
Happy BF selling day

Question:

*** hi Cordelia!

It's all good -- whichever program you decide to purchase -- you might want to recall that this platform is based upon the 'pay-it-forward' in kindness as an operating principle by the owners ... so your WA account is credited automatically going forward and you will likely find a new forwarded membership subscription due date ...

that's been my experience previously here ...

hope all this helps for a clearer understanding of the pay it forward principle ...

all the very best ... :)) ***

To avoid much thought and defeat, what I did was to clock the banner and do it myself.

This way I am now happy I did achieve my aim than waiting for it to automatically pay. The earlier the better for me. Good lick Cordelia.

Yeah that’s what I’m thinking, let’s just “crack on” 🥳

Hi

When you click banner up top, you would get a coupon discount for a Premium, however there should a box on page where you are able upgrade to Premium Plus, and if applied the coupon it will be upgrade on its own, the only difference is the "plus".

You don't need to cancel, system would work out prorated amount for any months you have paid.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Abie really useful

You're very welcome.

Hope you had a great thanksgiving by the way :)

My renewal was the 29th. It prorated so Prem+ was $497. No need to cancel.

Mel

Mel that was exactly what I meant thankyou. So you have upgraded? 👍

Yes, I did. They announced it was live in live chat and I jumped on it. :-)

Mel

👏

Cordelia, it will automatically deduct :)

Thank you, I thought it would, I just seem to get over anxious, scared I will miss out ….oh yes there is an acronym for my anxiety ……FOMO lol

Lol
You will be fine

Hi WAmily, hope you are having a good and productive Monday. :)
I am looking at adding Ezoic to my websites and having completed the process the final hurdle was to add Ezoi

I tried Ezoic, but it ended up affecting my site layout badly. Ezoic aren’t a hosting company, but they want to point the servers away from Wealthy Affiliate. You can in theory still use Ezoic without changing name servers but it didn’t work for me and only ended up messing up my site. I deactivated the plugin a few days ago and my site is fine now. I looked into an alternative and found medianet. If you Google it you’ll find out more. It seems there’s no traffic requirement, but they’re more interested in your websites appearance. I’m going to apply but will stick with Adsense for a few more weeks.

Thank you Kathy that’s interesting to read, I will have a look at medianet together with the reviews, I sort of came to the same conclusion as you, in that Ezoic does not work well with plug-in, I certainly won’t be changing to Ezoic hosting, therefore I need to look at alternatives… 👀

Hi, how's ur experience with medianet? Are they good?

Thank you for reminding me, do you know, this has been on my to-do list for 4 months…👍👏

Hi Cheekeong, I don't have enough traffic yet to apply for Medianet, but hope to soon as my site continues to grow. You need 50,000 page views a month

Wow did not know that, thank you so much for your help.

You’re welcome 🙂 Ezoic worked for a short while, then I had terrible problems with it. Support were great and very helpful, but unless your site is hosted on another platform you’re better off with Google Adsense.

Thank you so much for the information and all the best to you!

Just a quick follow up on this...did you ever have any luck setting up Ezoic? I was hoping to use them as well but Site Support said WA hosting not compatible. If you found a solution, I'd love to hear it. Would prefer using ezoic over adsense and, like you, I don't have the monthly page views for medavine or adthrive. Thx!

Hi

There's another thread here

Hello and thanks for this info!

Hi Tzbiz, funny you should ask
I spent a good chuck of yesterday trying to get some joy.
They do have a plug in which (as an alternative) can be applied, however I am told it does slow the site down. So far no luck

I am a member or Project24 and they have an agreed partnership in which you receive added benefits to IF you use Cloud or CDN/ Ezoic.

I received an email from them saying my site was too small and young for them to get the necessary data, to enable the plug in to work, but I am going to try and attempt again using Income School’s working relationship and see if I manage to sort it out.

It does seem to take time.

I will let you know 🤞

Thanks Abie,
I will give it a go, I do have the “plug in” but now they tell me my site is too new and small for them to collect the necessary data for the plug in.

I will let you know 🤞

We will find it as we continue to seek answers. Have a good day!

Dear Cordelia,

Thanks a lot for asking this question I am thinking of asking this question.

One of my targets is to add Ezoic to my site (last month - 920 sessions). My site is hosted here and I love WA - Siterubix, so I had a doubt whether there will be any problem with the Ezoic process.

Since it will take a while for me to achieve that 10k sessions/pageviews I decided to ask later but you asked it.

Reading the suggestions eagerly.

May I ask...

Without changing from WA - Siterubix can't we set up Ezoic.

Please advise and I am looking forward to how you sort this out.

Very helpful question...

Thanks Paul,

FYI Ezoic have dropped the page view requirements (for the time being) so you could monetise with them right now if you wished. It's a bit of a palaver getting it set up (but I'm not very techy) others (you) may find it easier than I did.
As you can see I'm struggling

I will check out the answers from the community, especially from Abie and Partha..👍

Thanks for the helpful question and for this reply. I am not a techy person and I am afraid.

I wish you all the very best.

May I know, whether you added Ezoic to your site?

Hi Paul,

Not at the moment, its been a bit of a palaver, I am trying to use the Ezoic plug-in rather than the cloud or Ezoic hosting, but I'm struggling to integrate. I am going to let it sit for the time being...I think when I have more PV's might give me more leverage with Ezoic

Oh, Okay! That's great to increase your PV, indeed it will give more leverage. All the very best!

If possible please read the below question I asked related to ezoic and read the reply by Loes. I believe it might be helpful.

Have you managed to integrate ezoic?

No not yet,
I think I am going to put a bit more effort with traffic, make more off a consisted effort with thier support team (so far automated response and no real person (aka no real help) but if I still have a problem with cloud I will try for the big bugger….mediavine ….maybe not this year…😔

Hey Cordelia,

Firstly, well done, congratulations for getting to level of traffic required for Ezoic acceptance (although I understand that they will accept some sites at slightly lower traffic levels nowadays... Did you cheat?? LOL)

As far as I'm aware there is no actual requirement to change Nameservers with Ezoic, they simply recommend it for speed issues.

Unfortunately, the sites I have Ezoic ads on are not hosted at WA, so I don't know what difference it would make.

That being said, when I first added them to a finance-based site, my mobile site speed went down to 22 for a few weeks before they sorted it out.

Plus, I know many people who still have poor site speed scores even with Ezoic Hosting/Nameserver change.

It's not until you get to 50,000 monthly visitors that they offer an option for a guaranteed site speed score of 80+.

However, if you've gone with the paid premium ads ($29.99 a month for under 50,000 visitors), the site speed is still pretty good.

I'd check if Jim and Ricky have any specific videos around Nameservers and Ezoic, as I know they like to use it.

You could also go onto YouTube and search "Morten Storgaard + Ezoic Nameservers" or something similar, as I know that he loves Ezoic (He has a site that gets 300,000+ visitors a month, but chooses Ezoic over Mediavine and Adthrive).

Basically, Ezoic is a bit of a S**T to start off with, but once your site gets used to it (could be a month or two), the ads get better and better, and so do does your site speed and revenue.

Sorry, probably not much help there Cordelia, Hahaha.

Partha

Partha, (spellcheck keeps changing to Martha)...thank you for reading and responding, I always enjoy hearing from you😉
You are spot b.l..k on, ....I cheated.....ha ha (I am a p24 member)

so far I have only done the Ezoic tutorials, I think what you are suggesting is to look at other tutorials. I did try YouTube but Didn't get any answers.
I guess because Jim and Ricky are so supportive of Ezoic it makes sense to look at what they may suggest.

Thanks for the Youtube suggestion I will go and check it out.
I'm not going to change hosts so I will have to look at other ways of adding Ezoic to my site....
I am aware Ezoic has it's cons and will slow my site for a few months..👀☹️

Thanks for dropping by Partha 👍

Hey Cordelia,

This is the type of question that only a tax specialist in your own area can truly answer for you.

We all need to keep in mind that we are not lawyers nor accountants, so we should NEVER respond to these types of questions with anything that we "think" might be right.

Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks you are of course right. 👍 thank you

Cordelia
Nothing to worry about.
Follow the YouTube/Adsense link and it will open up a US IRS form.
Very easy to fill in, name, UK National Insurance number. etc.
Are you resident in US, do you have business premises in the US
Mostly drop down boxes.
Took me about 10 minutes.
Then it goes off and processes it.
Two minutes later mine said zero tax in the USA
Print off the form saying no tax to pay for your records.
Job done.
Good luck.

Dave,
Brilliant, it’s what I thought, in fact when I previously completed my adsense account I received the notification you mentioned, but I guess I was thrown when I received a notification from YouTube...
Thanks for putting my mind at rest... 👍

Cordelia, I’ve been through the process. It takes 10 minutes and you don’t need a tax specialist if it comes back and says zero tax.

As a YouTubeer, I've not seen that

I'm interested in hearing the answers, Cordelia!
