A question I get posed to me all the time is goes a little something like this... "Hey Kyle, I want to know how long it is going to take me to earn money online here. What do you think?" My answer is always the same, but a little bit different depending on how the question is asked, but one thing remains a constant. YOU are in charge of your success. Not me. Not your neighbour. Second, you have everything you need here at WA to create success. It requires you to build a website, which is your foundation for success...this is the foundation of your house that you can build as big as you want. If you want the nice granite countertops in your kitchen, that will come later. But before you can build that kitchen, you need that foundation. This is where your website and your niche come into play. And it takes different amounts of time and effort to get this in place. Me personally, I worked my rear off for the first two months with ZERO financial success, but I had a ton of other success which was just as important to me. A had a website, I had content and I had the beginnings of a business. This is exciting stuff. One thing I learned early on is that if you focus just on money in life and in business, you will never have any of it or you will have to sell your soul to earn it. If you focus on "building" something great and something of substance, the money follows. This does not mean spending a week working on something and hoping that it will someone miraculously turn into a money tree. That is not how business works and that should not be your expectation. By my 6 months I had pretty much a full time income online. What had happened is my hard work from my first months work started paying dividends. That is how business works. What you do NOW, pays dividends LATER and sometimes forever. I have campaigns that I created over the years that I created once, took me a week, but paid me $$$ for years. My focus was not immediate money, the focus was creating something that was great, that was helpful for the people that touched it, and that was of tangible substance. So...you want to know how long it takes to earn money online? This is up to YOU and whether or not it EVER happens is up to you. One thing I can assure you of is that everything you need is here at Wealthy Affiliate, the only missing piece of the puzzle is you, your time, your dedication and your persistence.

I would actually recommend that. Traffic comes from content though and your traffic "staying" on your site, will come from the quality of the content. Once you can engage and build trust, you have a business on your hands.

Thank you for this post Kyle. I think it is important to not focus on the money. If you do the work and focus on giving readers what they are looking for, the money will follow down the road.

Without an inch of doubt, this process works. I have not only done it once, I have replicated this process MANY MANY times. I have also worked with 1,000's of folks over the years that have done this, online and offline. It is the "way".

I think this is my URL is http://ilovegaming.siterubix.com or if not this is my web site name. I do not believe I added anything as I was waiting to get some cash in to complete my add-on's. I also haven't really been in much since Wednesday, as my Grandmother is down and my internet is really data capped. Also had got to a place of feeling lost and didn't ask for help. Wrong move to begin with as you said if I am or any of us are having problems just ask for help.

When I try to open your site using the link you show I get this message:

Server error
The website encountered an error while retrieving http://ilovegaming.siterubix.com/. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this webpage later.

You get your website URL from the following page:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

This is where all your management is for your websites. Perhaps you mistyped this and if it is actually broken, chances are an update you made has caused this. I would suggest that you consider "reinstalling" this website by creating a new website over top of the existing one if that is the case.

What is your website URL and did you make any recent updates that could have triggered this? New theme, new plugins?
