I have a question for anyone who might read this:

Can a website promoting the Wealthy Affiliate opportunity, have the words, "Wealthy Affiliate" in it?

Will appreciate any and all feedback.

Regardless of whether or not it's allowed, I would not use the words Wealthy Affiliate as part of my site's name.

My main reason for not using these words is that if you do, everybody will immediately know that you are biased. If I was looking for an unbiased review, I wouldn't even click on such a link.

Thank you so much Isabella...
.....hadn't thought about doing a review site, just a site to market the best there is in learning affiliate internet marketing. Never liked the review sites that tried to cloak the fact they were connected by a commission. Always seemed a bit deceptive. I would rather come right out and talk about what I believe in..... and flaunt the fact I am biased. But since I posted the question, I've learned there's a branding problem with trying to brand something that already is. Basically, it can't be done. So, off in a different direction.

The nicest thing in the world though is having the community people respond......a very secure feeling.

Thank you again

I agree. I also dislike review sites that try to hide the fact that they get a commission.

I find that often the About Me page is a good place to tell people that your website wouldn't exist if you hadn't found Wealthy Affiliate and learned how to build a website....

Totally agree Isabella. I have a tutorial from a gal in the UK on About Me pages. Very important page in the site for help in branding.

Yes, you use the word "hide" I use "cloak." Same idea, and negative connotation. The one I hate the most is, "Is XYZ A Total Scam, Or What?".....only to find they are an affiliate. Total B.S.

There's nothing in the training that warns us from using the words Wealthy Affiliate in your domain. And as a member who is going to be actively promoting it, I don't see whey they would have any issue with you having that in your domain.

Unless you're told otherwise from Kyle himself, go for it. You have nothing to lose.

Interesting Eric........and thank you for your input. A little bit of a concern I have is that the two words might not be that good as far as keywords go......what do you think? For a website in the make money at home category? I don't know and I'm pretty green in all of this. I think I am going to send Kyle a PM.
Thank you again for your response.

To be safe, you can rather use "rich affiliate" and there would be no problem with Kyle and Carson. :)

I don't think K and C would appreciate that, somehow. Ask them directly, and if they are fine with it, then make your move.

Sounds like the right thing to do. Many thanks.

I concur with Geoff. Most people don't allow it, although I don't recall ever reading that it is not allowed in WA. Maybe you should ask @Kyle directly.

I think not, but also consider that you might choose a url with a lower competition keyword in it. I'm no expert yet, but that's my understanding.
