I am trying to grow my following so I have been getting a lot of comments on my profile. I have continuously noticed people who have joined after I did giving advice as if they are experts here? Telling me to follow the training and telling me how great the support from members is.

I already know the training is great and the support from other members is outstanding. What confuses me is how someone who just joined yesterday would know that? lol

I'm growing more and more confused and curious if these people are fake accounts just here to try and boost the platforms creditability. Why would someone with a rank in the 5-6 digits who just joined this month be spreading advice on how to succeed here?

I'm definitely just being a hater but my attention to detail and curiosity is tapping me on the shoulder.

It could also be that they were ranked higher at one time, then for some reason didn't participate as much in the WA platform and their rank went back up a lot. A person's rank goes up and down depending on how active they are within this platform.

That's what happened to me. I was ranked 50 before, then got really sick and couldn't participate as much and my rank went back up to 8950.

Hi Kara, some of the new members that offer you comments and advice may be genuine, while others have got a quick start on ways of manipulating their rank.

If you find the advice or comment to be of help to you, that's all good otherwise just delete it without responding. Try not to let this cause frustration in you. I do understand what you are saying as it often happens to me.

Best wishes,

Thanks, Michael! I agree, not worth the frustration just causes a tad bit of confusion! lol

Hi Kaara,

Don't let that bother you. I feel they are just being polite and do not want to show their lack of knowledge.

The WA culture of paying it forward is instilled right from the start. I feel that is the motivation behind these comments.

Rather than focusing on these low value comments, just thank them and move on. Building your business is far more important than spending time on this noise.

I wish you much success in your affiliate marketing journey.

I'd say it's the lessons telling people to "go comment" on others posts or whatnot...they wanna be able to cross it off but maybe they don't wanna sound like they're new...I don't know, I just say what I can on it (sadly very few words, because I AM new and don't know what I'm doing, I'm not going to tell others how to do something when I can't yet.)

I hadn't paid much attention to that. I've been here over a year and a half and I do get great help from other members and, from day one, I've helped members but that's because I have a background in IT and can answer a lot of the domain registration and hosting questions off the bat.

That said, I can't speak for other new members or their expertise. Still, it's interesting to see that people who have only been here a very short time are speaking with "authority" as to how WA works.

I'm not sure what to say here, LOL.
