About DavidRansom
Joined July 2016
Hi, everyone! I am a writer, editor, window cleaner, and MLM entrepreneur. I have two sons: Jack (22) and Joe (19). I live in the beautiful historical town of Bury St Edmunds in the heart of Suffolk, England, UK.

The thing I enjoy doing most is writing short stories, plays, poetry. And, of course, I love reading fiction and poetry. The best book I ever read was "House Of Leaves" by Mark Z Danielewsky - awesome!

I'm also a movie buff; I like the best of all genres, but particularly love horror films (not slasher; more creepy, psychological). My favourite movie is "The Third Man".

I also love the seaside, camping, hiking, boats, thunderstorms, rain, snow, running, swimming, bodyboarding, weight training, Cornwall, Devon, The Lake District, Wales.
DavidRansom's Goals 3
Money Goals
#1: Initially, enough so I can stop window cleaning.

#2: Then, enough to by a nice house (cash), a nice car, and a motor yacht (I've had a picture of one on my fridge door for the past fifteen years, and I look at it every day and tell myself that one day I will own one just like it).

#3: Time: I work nearly every waking hour, so it's not a case of investing more time (that would probably kill me) but spending more time on what you are teaching me in here at the expense of other work.

Thank you for your welcome and best wishes, Anthony! :)

I would appreciate it if you could help with this:

I just sent my link to some contacts, but I noticed only the first part (ending in ".com") was in blue, the rest in black. I clicked on the link, but next to the form there was someone called "Deroka" saying welcome, and that they were looking forward to working with the new member - should that have been my name and picture there?

And best wishes to you, too!

Hi, Kyle!

I am stuck on lesson 7 because I tried to complete the task to find 10 keywords on Jaaxy with over 50 traffic and under 200 QSR, but most keywords do not have a QSR rating. When I click "Get QSR", no number appears - just a blue bar. Am I doing something wrong?

Also, looking at the very few that have a QSR, I cannot find any keywords that fit the criteria of the task: over 50 traffic and under 200 QSR.

Also, in many places in this lesson (both in the text and in the video) it says to find under 200 QSR, and in other places, it says to find under 300 QSR - which is best?

'Very grateful for your help.

David

Hi, Kyle!

I have just upgraded to Premium, and I am very excited!

I can now fully appreciate just how awesome this site is! I will be recommending it to everyone I know!

I can't wait to start referring people! :)

I no longer have the issue of not being able to complete the task in Lesson 7 (message above), as now I am Premium, I can see all the results (before, most were blurred out); the QSR numbers are all there; and I can now find keywords that fit the parameters of the task.

- But I think you should have a look at that task for starter members, as I know I wasn't the only one getting stuck and frustrated there.

Also, is under 200 or 300 QSR usually best?

Under 200 qsr is ideal these days, that is what I am for and obviously the closer to 0, the less competitive. :)

Hi, Deraj!

Thanks for your message. I am enjoying myself, and very excited.

But I am a bit worried that the website I have created does not have the "WP SPamshield" plugin. In the training video, I understood this to be essential. I only have two plugins instead of three. The spamshield is missing.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi, Kyle!

Thanks for your help so far. I have found my niche, created my website.

One thing that is worrying me: I thought, initially somewhere, it said the website would come with 5 plugins, but on your video, you show 3 that are already installed. I only have 2. The webshield is missing. Is there a reason for this, or is there an error?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, this has been updated because the functionality of these plugins has been built right into our website/hosting experience. Our most recent the SiteProtect platform:

So not to worry David. We are constantly advancing the platform here at WA and this video is going to be updated soon!

Thanks, kyle. I assume the same applies to the "Akismet" plugin I have now read about further on in your course, and that all websites now come with just the two plugins.

I will be upgrading any day now. 'Just trying to get some other D/Ds cancelled, first! :)
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, exactly that has been removed. It is now a PAID plugin and the platform we have recently rolled out is far more advanced than that.

Thanks, Deraji. I am so glad I found this website. It is very exciting! I am on lesson four of the starter training. I will think about upgrading to Premium within the next few days (will need to cancel a couple of other direct debits first). I'm glad to be part of your team! :)
