The Super Affiliate Challenge has started. It seems everyone off to the races.Except me.No, I am not suffering from paralysis by analysis. It is more like trying to herd cats. My mental cats, named ideas and thoughts, are running in different directions. More cats joined the herd as I read through the first-month task list. At this point, I decided to stop and think before rushing off.The SAC is a year long. But then what? I need to think beyond the end of the challenge.To make a long story sho

(Source: Audubon.org Photo: Johann Schumacher/Vireo)One of the great benefits of working from home is the opportunity to spend time either looking out of a window or being outside.Usually one of my cats will sit in the chair next to the window. Depending on which one, he or she will chatter to let me know of something of interest.

I wrote a blog post about the Stencil graphics application several years ago.https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/glenpalo/blog/the-stencil-graphics-applicationTheir new WordPress plugin just simplified our ability to add graphics to our WP content.This is now one of my favorite plugins of all time. It finds you free images online, lets you add them to posts, share directly to social media and is even a complete Image Editor plugin that works right inside your WordPress admin area.

Google announces broad core algorithm update on Wednesday, March 13th.So if there is a fluctuation in your traffic, it may be due to changes within Google. As always, Google states that there are no fixes if your rankings drop.It still pays to use long-tail keywords because it is easier to rank for them. Better yet, Amazon makes 57% of their sales from long-tail keywords. (Source: searchengineguide.com)People who use long-tail searches are looking for very specific information. So, if you can g

I noticed a disturbing trend in product reviews.It may be new or me recognizing it for the first time.But...People are writing posts disguised as product reviews. They are nothing but 'bait and switch' posts for other products. And, certainly, not honest reviews.I noticed this recently while searching for reviews of affiliate marketing products. I found another one this morning, which prompted me to write this post.The posts follow a pattern. First, there would be a brief description of the pro

Time for a Mini Rant!I had two instances today about Wealthy Affiliate members copying content.The first occasion was seeing one of my advertisements promoting Wealthy Affiliate copied word for word. I noticed the title, "2 more facts you should know about Wealthy Affiliate," which at first thought it was my ad.

Yay!I reached a new milestone in my Pinterest average monthly viewers.1 Million Viewers!I only have 180 followers. And I follow even fewer.I repin (share other people's pins) pins more often than I pin my own stuff. When repinning, I look for quality pins with bad descriptions. Before repinning, I write a better description of the pin including keywords and add hashtags. I do not change the link. That's illegal or at least unethical.Please share. Wealthy Affiliate training works!
