Core “Business Start Up” Training

Hello All,

I have been with WA for two months now and the training and help has been fantastic, the only problem I am having at the moment is with my traffic, I have done

Maybe develop a planner to follow or an empty one for free. Offer one-on-one for a small fee. Add equipment you have used to purchase after each of your posts that reveal your experiment or your success that link to your reviews. ^_~

This sounds like some great ideas! thank you I shall look at getting some of these implemented.

all the best,
James

Are you still adding new content regularly?

as regularly as I can, aiming for at least 2 to 3 updates a week at present.

Hi James
Well done for getting your site up and running, you've obviously put a lot of work into it.

These are a few things I noticed.

1. Homepage - It's quite difficult to skim read. No headings - no bullet points. The text is just too dense. (This is also an issue elsewhere)
2. Images - they need to have captions or there's no point in them being there.
3. Use contractions in your writing - I've instead of I have.
4. Keywords - Are you using keywords in your title and then within your first paragraph? I ask because I looked at several of your pages and couldn't work out the keywords.
5. Who's the site for? - On the home page you talk about it being for men and women. I couldn't find a photograph of a woman. It doesn't matter if the site is aimed just at men - but if you're going to say both you need to illustrate both.
6. I think you may want to have your blog roll as your home page.
7. I don't know whether you theme allows more than one menu - but it doesn't quite work having your privacy policy - disclaimer etc muddled in with Home Multi Gym Review. It just makes navigation a little more difficult.
8. Not sure quite what you're going to be promoting - as products

Hope this helps

Beverley

Thank you Beverley,

some interesting points you have raised there, im going to go over my site and review your points against my content and see if I can implement a few changes,
when you say you struggled to see the keywords, I have used them in the title of the page/post and the first paragraph,

is there a better way to utilise keywords in regards to usage in my content?

again thanks for the feedback ill certainly take that on board and make a few improvements, im still learning and appreciate all the help i can get.

regards
James

Looks good to me, James. Just keep on taking classes here at WA how to improve, or get better traffic, or talk with other people here that are really experienced. I'm kinda of a newbie, and I'm learning a lot here at WA, so, I just ask questions, and even more qualified people will help you out.

have you ever considered Linkshare For links? Or, Amazon affiliate?

just a couple of tidbits that may also help you out as well.

Really, your website looks like it's very well done, so great job!

Eric

Hello Eric, many thanks for your comments, im still on a steep learning curve and appreciate all feedback I get as it helps me improve all the time.

I already utilize Amazon affiliates for some of the product reviews I have done/will be doing.

I wish you the best f luck and if you want me to take a look at your website and give you some feedback i'd be more than happy too.

Regards
James

Hi james. I have just taken a look at your site and I think it looks great. No clutter. Just stick in there. Keep adding content. I suppose it will be up and down for a while. Great job. Hope mine looks as good in a week or two lol

Many thanks for the feedback, it's still a work in progress but getting there bit by bit,
been a month or so in the works now.
If you want any feedback on your site just let me know.

goodluck with everything.

cheers

Hello all,

Is anyone having any problems with Streetarticles?, I was asked to redo some content on an article I wrote for it to be approved which I have done, but now it h

It's happened to me several times, but I had to do some slight fixes, and usually is accepted/approved. Hmmm, maybe if you PM Kyle or Carson. They run it, ask them what's going on. I never had to wait that long. They're usually pretty good in responding.

Yeah I will continue to write some more content and keep building my site out, best way really,

If anything the pending time gives me chance to improve upon it!

Hmmm is that what will happen with my article too, I want to fix some language errors and edit my article few hours ago, if I have to wait for next 5 days on pending ... well I think I will just write another one ...

Happened to me a couple times. Not much you can really do but wait it out. They approve much faster as you progress with SA

Ok no problem thanks Ill wait a little longer and see what happens.

In the meantime keep writing! Don`t get hung up when things don`t go your way, keep pushing!

Hello all,

Just a quick question for anybody who can help,

I have been generating content for my blog for just over a week now, as well as submitting articles to str

Yep, I did it, accidently, but was brought to my attention. I was told it was a no no! To NEVER do it! So, I won't.

I learned, we all can learn from our mistakes!

Eric

Nah, don`t do it. That`s duplicate content and will do some serious damage to your rankings, both your article and blog post and site in general.

Thanks for the quick reply,

Just wanted to clarify for sure.
