How To Make A Million Dollars In One Year?!They say that time flies when you're having fun. The past year at WA has definitely been 'fun' - just not in the traditional sense. :)When I first joined WA, I was fed up with bouncing around from various 9 to 5s year after year. As the cliche goes, I was tired of helping fulfill someone else's dreams in exchange for my time and overall well-being. I decided it was time to figure out a way to avoid repeating the same cycle. After a few hours of search
Hey everyone,It's been a while since I've posted anything in WA and I figured now was probably a good time. I've been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for just about 6 months now and am starting to see some increases that look pretty promising. QuoraA while back Michelle (mybiz4u) wrote a post about how using Quora can be a huge help in generating traffic and improving your writing skills. ( I made a profile and started answering questions about my niche. Other us
I was scrolling through Google+ today and came across an interesting article. The author basically says that instead of Googles result pages only showing 160 characters, it's now been increased to 230 characters on average. Here's a link for further reading: question for you guys is does this mean we should start adding the extra 70 characters to our meta descriptions on new posts? It seems like if this news is true that would probably be the best practice in
Hey everyone,It feels good to be able to have finished Level 5 of the Certification courses! The amount of information and knowledge that's taught within the Certification courses is pretty mind blowing. I started out with ZERO knowledge of SEO, the SERP, Product Reviews, Social Media Engagement, Affiliate Marketing, and everything else that is taught in detail. Don't get me wrong, I still have a lot more to learn and I'm definitely not an expert in those areas yet. I've seen some other members

Hey everyone,I woke up today, got some coffee and decided to check my Amazon Associates Home Page.Upon opening, I scrolled down and couldn't believe it at first but this is what I saw:Someone ordered a couple unrelated items and I got to earn a couple dollars as a result.It's not much but it's a start. Salesmen always say "The first one is the hardest". Now that the first one's out of the way, it's clear that it's possible and all the people here at WA with success stories aren't just saying it
Hi again my fellow Wealthy Affiliates,Tonight marks the milestone of my completion of the Certification Level 4 training. Trust me, I'm fully aware that this is only the beginning, many things I've overlooked have been brought to my attention recently regarding this process.I still have a long ways to go and a lot more to learn, but it feels good to finish that section off. I was stuck on that one for a while, so much social media training. (I'm not the type of person to spend all day on social

Hey guys, I just wanted to check in with the community again.Tuesday is the new Monday. When I told my family that I was joining Wealthy Affiliate I mentioned that if I could make Tuesday's my Monday then I would already be ahead of the game. I don't want to be on the same clock that the rest of society, in general, seems to be in sync with. The whole goal of this operation is to be able to avoid feeling trapped in an unhappy situation with limited personal freedom.Many of us dread going in to

Hey guys,After I woke up today and made some coffee I turned on my laptop and after checking all the usual channels of operation I noticed that there was a ranking update on Wealthy Affiliate. I'm still not sure I believe that it's accurate to be honest ha, and if it is, I'm not 100 percent sure how I managed to move all the way up to 401. I guess as long as I keep doing what I'm doing and reach out to help when and where I can, it'll start to pay some dividends, whether tangible or not. The co
Hi my fellow Wealthy Affiliates, I'd like to share my progress thus far with all of you. I'm still a newbie to all of this website development, internet affiliate marketing stuff but I have definitely learned a lot in a short amount of time. I tend to get ahead of myself sometimes and have found myself getting discouraged every now and again because it seems like a slow process with what could seem like no progress.Then, when I actually put it into perspective I realize that I have made a ton o
Hey everyone, I just wanted to give everyone a quick update. The past week or so I felt like I was being held up on completing the certification within Wealthy Affiliate because Google had not approved my Adsense account. Instead of letting myself lose all motivation, I decided to start working on other things, such as some of the live training that I had missed due to work on my sites.I also decided to start a second website that is more for my personal enjoyment rather than earning revenue.
