About Howmuch
Joined October 2013
UPDATE: April 23, 2015--Still going strong! My cleaning business is keeping me really busy--I have a website for it now that I need to keep updated, as if I don't have enough to do (http://www.swiftcleaningcompany.com), and my camping website is keeping me busy and happy, too. I know I am hardly ever around any more but I still come back and lurk when I have ten minutes! WA continues to be my favorite place online for learning and concrete, practical help. If you are new, hang in there, and stay close to these people. They are a great bunch.

Here to learn.--October 13, 2013

Hi! It's now November 26, 2013 and I've gone through all four levels of the Certification Courses, have my website up and running of course, and am now a Premium member with a Jaaxy account. I am now just starting to go through Affiliate Bootcamp, because I'm sure it has other stuff I want to know about.

I am still here to learn. And for learning, this is the place to be.

No plugin, but if you can afford five dollars, there are a lot of gigs on fiverr.com that will edit your work for that amount. You are doing awesome for not being a writer, and your website is just amazing as far as balance and color is concerned; you have a gift and it shows.

I was wondering if my website should be full of content before starting on course 1 level 6. The one about getting your site SEO ready. Should my site be ready for the web at this point?
Reply
howmuch Premium
Ah! No, it's designed so that you have SEO in place for the content you will be creating. Not that lots of content in place already is bad; just the opposite. It's just that it's not necessary. I would say the majority of those taking the course only have the first three pages done by the time they go through lesson six. In a sense, your site is ready for the web--you have your Privacy Policy, About Me and maybe your Home Page or first post, page or blog completed. As you learn to install the SEO plugin and carry on with the other lessons, you will also constantly be adding new content to your site--it is this new content that tells Google your site is active. Adding new content all the time is crucial because of that fact (also people like new stuff every time they visit, and that will also help with your rankings, because people will keep coming back).

So if you just have your three pages in place now, go right on to lesson six and as you continue just keep adding content.

Hope this helps. If not just let me know! :)

Reply
howmuch Premium
A great deal of streamlining of my pursuits and the support and understanding of my family. I have to keep assessing my goals for the day and what I can do to be more efficient in what I do. The only thing that doesn't change is the time I spend with my family--nothing is more important. But I've learned to steal 10 minutes here, fifteen there, and I've pretty much given up tv, casual reading (ok I still do that but not as much), hobbies and playing video games--all time eaters. There is also the occasional late night.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments and useful advice. I'm going to take everything you have said on board. I have some things to change around with the imagery anyway as i've just watched the training and have sourced the pictures from the wrong place (not even sure if that i was allowed to use them) :/ Oops! I'll be sure to put the new ones back to the right hand side.

I'm working my way through course 2 at the moment but think i'll be going into affiliate links in course 3 so i'm sure you're advice will come in very useful when I cross that bridge.

Should I be worried that my site was ranked on page 3, then page 4 and now is on page 7? Do you think I need to be building content faster than I am?

Again, thank you soo much for taking the time to give me your very valuable time and feedback.

Tori :)

Any time, Tori!

It is a bit of a concern that your ranking is dropping like that. It may simply be that traffic to your site is slowing down, but I would also take the time to look at my content. If you have too much advertising or links to advertisers your ranking will drop. It will also drop if you haven't checked the "no follow" box for pages that are not actual content, i.e. the privacy policy, lists of items for sale, indexes, etc. Google doesn't consider those "quality content" pages, and so if they discover that you have 5 pages of quality content and 5 pages of "not-quality" content, it can affect your rating. So can adding links to sites that don't have a good reputation, and so can duplicate content. So these are all things to check on your site. If all that is normal, it could simply be slow. I can't remember where in the lessons you start verifying authorship; if you haven't got there yet it is probably that, and your rank will pick up after.

Building content correctly is waaaaay more important than building content fast. If the content is done right, after time it will increase your ranking in Google. But if you write a lot of content and some of it isn't quality, if will adversely affect your ranking and you will have to go back and fix it anyway. So build at the rate you are going, and make sure it's good stuff that readers can use.

And have a great day! :)

An excellent post! And a really, really nicely crafted website. I really like your menu heading "Scam Spotting". It's an interesting title and sure to get views.

As good as the site is, there are some things you might want to take a second look at and decide if you want to tweak it a little:

The first thing I noticed was a lack of images. People like pictures; placing one in the top fold of each page (that is, the part of the page that people see when they come to your site without having to scroll down) will grab a "surfer's" attention and make them stay and read a bit if they were inclined to move along. It can also serve to break up an article and add interest if it is too long. Also, you can use it as a link to an affiliate, thereby increasing your chances of a referral or sale.

There are a couple of questionable phrases that are used, and by that I mean they imply, slightly, one thing but say another. One is "then you are in the right place" under the heading "What Is Triond?" The phrase almost intimates that Triond is a good place to be, right after you have called it a borderline scam. It pulls the reader up short and makes them call the opinions in the article into question. "Triond promises to help you" might be a better phrase, since it is simply a fact with no sense of personal opinion attached.

Also, avoid calling Triond an online opportunity. If it is a borderline scam that you are warning people about, it is no opportunity. I would maybe take that whole headline "How does Triond differ from other online opportunities?" out and place the information directly under the next headline, and then introduce the video.

I do like your writing. You have a natural way about you and it creates a sense of trust in your article. You have lots of lovely white space that pulls the reader along your content to the end, and I like the invitation to the reader to engage by asking if they have had any similar experiences.

All-in-all your work--and your site--is nicely crafted. Good job, in my opinion.

Thanks, Mahevash, that is very kind of you to say so! One good place for images (and by that I mean good pictures cheap) is www.fotolia.com

I generally look for free, royalty-free images from Wickepedia and Pixlr, and if I can't find one I like then I buy one from Fotolia. It usually costs me a buck. I don't like paying more because I am a cheapskate. :)

I must be going senile. I mean Pixabay. Pixlr is a photo editor site. Here's a link to a tutorial about all the places you can go for free images: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-find-free-images-to-use-on-your-website/a_aid/702740bb

Don't be so hard on yourself, it was an honest mistake. Thank you for the URL and the link. I noticed you put your affiliate link in there, does it have some benefit?
Reply
howmuch Premium
I think it's just to let WA know you are being active on the site by referring others' blogs and tutorials--it has no value otherwise as far as I know. When I go to make sure I am on the right page to recommend it to someone, I click on the little link icon below the title. It's a fast and easy way to copy and paste the correct page for someone to go to. My affiliate link is automatically a part of it. If you did the same thing it would have your affiliate link in it instead.

Your site is really coming along nicely! I like it. The colors are "wedding-y" and your choice of fonts is great.

The images you have chosen are very appropriate, and there are two things you might do to add readability to your site and increase the opportunity for affiliate marketing sales when you start putting ads on your site:

Keep your images to the right of your articles. We are more visually oriented rather than word-oriented, and images draw the eye. If they are to the right of your content the reader's eye will scan what you have written, rest briefly on the image, and then continue back to the left to continue reading. This "pulls" the reader down the text effortlessly. If all the pictures are centered the eye will start to read then jump down to the next picture, often before finishing the paragraph. This encourages the reader to skip possibly important information, or not retain it well. Then they grow tired of reading and either leave the page to go to another subject or leave the site entirely.

Once you start adding affiliate links to your website, go into your editor page and add a link to an affiliate to your pictures (if you have the Ultimate Tiny MCE plugin, which I highly recommend for your wordpress site, you will have a link icon you can click on after highlighting the picture). This will encourage click-throughs and possibly sales.

Other than that there's not much I can add. You should be proud of that site--it looks polished and professional. Keep building out that content and use keywords for your articles to help bring traffic in and I think you will see great results with your website. Well done, Tori!

Hello, how is it going? Just dropped in to ask how is your progress in the camping site coming along?

I've got about 90 pages so I am kind of coasting right now. It fell to the back burner because I was busy doing a tutorial for here, which ate up a huge amount of my time. But now the tutorial is done so I will be getting back to doing a couple more reviews and articles.

I was at your site the other day--it's beginning to look lovely! Keep adding that content and making those articles around 400 words in length. And if you have any questions or I can help at all in any way, let me know.

And if you want to guest blog on each other's sites let me know when you have a little time for that, as well.

How are you feeling about your site? I'm liking it muchly. :)
Reply
nalin2511 Premium
I am feeling OK about it ..a little lost as to what more content I can include..am not getting traffic actually..
Reply
howmuch Premium
I'm not getting a lot of traffic either--I think that's because of the season. When the weather warms up and people start thinking about camping more I think we'll both see a spike in traffic, not until then. That's why I started my website in the fall--so it would be really built out by the time spring arrived.

There are a couple of things you can do to create traffic for your site--Set up a Twitter account and search for "camping". When the results come up, pick the one or two with the largest followers. Click on one, then click on *their* followers, and follow every one of them. It takes a little time. But a lot of them will follow you back just because you "followed" them first. This will build up a collection of camping-interested people on twitter. Then, when you add a new article, tweet about it with a link to your site.
You can do the same with your Google + account--they have dozens of camping forums.

As for content, there is no end of subjects. Try the alphabet soup technique Kyle talks about. Go to Google search and type in "camping a"--Google will finish the sentence with any word that begins with "a", which has the added advantage of the fact that the words it tries to finish with are the product of peoples' searches. If what Google comes up with doesn't trigger an idea of an article, type in "camping b" and so on.

Hope this helps!

This will help a lot! Thank you ma'am. And yes you are right about the season. With spring/summer, the searches will increase hopefully.

Hang in there, kiddo. Just remember you are doing a great job. You'll get there. A camping website needs time to develop a following. Keep adding content regularly--even if it's just once a week--and you will eventually see results. Nothing worthwhile ever came easy! And your site really is developing nicely. If I can do anything else to help let me know.

Hi, I went to your site as example of what a web site should look like (campingandhikingideas) . Looks great to me. Well done. Now my question... How is it monetised?? Cheers
Reply
howmuch Premium
Through affiliate marketing usually. The lessons will tell you how in more detail, but essentially you get a commission any time someone clicks on an ad and buys something. Amazon is great, because if they click on that link, then decide against a camping item, even if they browse Amazon and decide on, say, video games or clothing or *anything* and buy it you still get the commission. There are also ways of promoting things (like WA if you take bootcamp instead of the regular lessons) that give you commissions and bonuses. You can also affiliate with companies that offer services for the same deal. Some build websites because they themselves have a product or service to sell, but usually it's affiliate marketing.

Thanks for the comment about my site, and the visit! :)

LOL! Don't worry about where you are, in your website build or lessons or anything. I roar at new things for some reason. It becomes a near obsession. The downside is that I make mistakes others avoid. So you are probably going at a sensible pace. Thanks for the compliment!

Hello Max! Saw a helpful comment on another post and decided to come over to your space on WA.

Love that you just dug right in and went to town -- nice website by the way. (That Hobo Stew does sound nice -- we make it at home all the time just on the stove (no foil of course), never knew it had a "name"!)

I'll be watching as things develop with you.

Best in 2014 and beyond!

Hah! Neither did we! Our family always called it "Leftover Stew" because at the end of the week we'd add all the leftovers to hamburger, add some water and spices, and simmer until it was done. It remains one of my favorite quick meals, camping or at home, and I was surprised when I discovered that others called it Hobo Stew. I'm so glad you like my website--it is a work in progress, but that is what it will always be I think.

Thanks so much for the comments, Mike. All the best to you as well.

Why thank you, Paolo! I have no doubt it will happen before long. My site is a seasonal one--camping--so I think maybe it will be a couple of months yet before the majority start thinking about it and then maybe traffic will start to seriously build. But I am learning so much right now it's secondary. All the best and much success to you too!

Maybe once you have filled out you site some and you can breathe a little bit we could guest-blog on each other's sites, say in a month or so or whenever you think you might want to. I have exchanged guest-posts with two other WA members so far and it has worked really well. Maybe it's something you might consider in the future. If so, just PM me.

Take your time about it. It doesn't save you any time, really, you still have to write an article, but it adds some variety to your site and it increases your credibility with Google because you have authorship on another site besides your own. So as I've said before, a month or two down the line if you still want to exchange articles, feel free to ask.

Have a good one!

Rowena, check out: this free css checkbox site;

http://csscheckbox.com/

You can either download the kit (I have not done that), or like I did, copy the HTML code of your selected design, then paste it into your WP editor in Text mode.

I selected the Google style, and it looks like this;

https://www.dropbox.com/s/k1m2c0xa5cuqz9n/checkboxes_sample.png

They also have a textbox generator where you can design your own.

An alternative, if you don't need the boxes to be functional as tick boxes, is to use an image. Search Google for "free checkbox graphics" and you will find lots of them.

Hope this helps. ~ Jude

I need a page goal like that. I mean, I guess one just fills up pages as best as one can, but a good, solid goal like 100 pages is a good one. Maybe I'll start modest, like, um... 25. Then 50. Then 100. Whatever works.

Yup! Baby steps, that's what it's all about. You'll be surprised at how fast those pages collect. And of course, the more pages you have published, the more pages google can rank, and then the more pages people see when they're looking for your subject.

Instead of just being entertained, I'm being entertained and have the real chance to make an income on the side. Plus, it's super satisfying to see what I can do online now. I can't believe what I know--and what I'm still learning, because I'm going through bootcamp to pick up more ideas and knowledge. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this site.

Howdy, howmuch. Just took a look at your website and I like what you have done and I will also be checking back. I'm 62 and love camping. I have a couple of suggestions for topics on your site. Maybe you could address different types of camping. I am a "car camper" now, but when I was younger I was a "backpacker camper". Then there is "Cadillac camping" for the well to do. My favorite food tip is to cook meals at home like a Brisket with gravy and freeze the meals in a seal-a-meal pouches. I keep all of my frozen meals in one cooler including a gallon of frozen milk. When you want a meal just put that pouch in boiling water and you will have a home cooked meal ready to eat in minutes. Use the milk as it slowly thaws out. One can do this with many meals. This I have found saves a lot of work and leaves more time for hiking and other activities. I just thought you might like the imput. I think your site is a really good one.

Now tom, why didn't you put that in the comments section at the site? That's awesome advice. I will be following those suggestions for sure. In fact, I may start one off with a paraphrase of this post and credit you with it. That's camping gold. Thanks, Tom! :)

I forgot to ask--how do you find premium? Did you begin with premium or decide on it after the free course? I thought I might do that before committing to a monthly fee. It's looking like it might be worth it, though.
