Day 20 - Learn How to Build a Website Yourself in WordPress 2017

Last Update: June 08, 2017

Hey there and a Big Welcome to Day 20 of Learn How to Build a Website Yourself in WordPress 2017 – I’m super excited!

NOTE:

In order to see any of the previous day’s posts – check out My Posts blog roll on the bottom right hand side.

A recap on what I did yesterday – Day 19:

· Checked out keyword positions in Google on my first post in Website 1

· Announced that I’m starting a new project – called Website 2 – just so I can distinguish them when writing my posts here


So here we are at Day 20 And Wow…

Yesterday I said that I was ‘really excited’ about this new project, Website 2, but now I’ve researched my keywords more in depth – I’m OVER THE MOON EXCITED!

I’m always trying to think and work smarter rather than harder – as I’m sure we all are!

I’ve always felt that it would be great to build an affiliate site as a trend was growing not when the trend was over and because there’s so many marketers now promoting that product I’m now competing with a ton of other people in the search engines.

*** Well, I’ve found a product range that’s a new and consistent growing trend and I’m going for it… Woohoo!***

I would love to tell you what this trend is, BUT, then I would be giving away my new business concept and inviting competition – not a smart thing to do – I’m sure you’ll agree!

What I will tell you … Is the reason I’m so excited…

The keywords in this new trend has amazing searches and right now, those searches have very little competition. Because the trend is so new there’s a lot of people searching for the items I’ll be promoting but not many affiliate marketers have got on the band wagon yet in promoting them!

AND, because the trend is so new I’ve decided to build an Authority Site – something I’ve never actually contemplated before – so this is pretty exciting stuff for me.

I went through the WA Keyword Tool and found amazing keywords:

Keyword 1 – Main Keyword (two words)

Searches – 282,120

Traffic – 47,961

Competition - 236

Article Power – 7.6 – this is a bit lower than I would like but only by .4

Keyword 2 – this one is Super Wow – this is a long tailed keyword (6 words) WITH a buyer’s keyword – includes the words ‘where to buy’

Searches – 10,533

Traffic – 1,791

Competition - 29

Article Power - 10

Keyword 3 (3 words)

Searches – 5,417

Traffic - 921

Competition - 118

Article Power – 8.8

Keyword 4 (3 words)

Searches – 3,746

Traffic - 637

Competition - 70

Article Power - 8.5

Well actually the list just goes on and on…

Well folks, not much of a lesson today, but I just wanted to share with you my absolute excitement!

Thanks for reading my jabbering, here’s to you all having a great weekend. It’s Friday here in New Zealand and I’m off to Auckland soon for the night to hang out with my daughter.

She flies out for her Big OE to Europe tomorrow. That’s super exciting for her, and for me too, as I know the excitement of traveling and I'm so glad she gets to experience that!

I’ll see you tomorrow as…

Tomorrow we’ll be on Day 21 of Learn how to build a website yourself in WordPress in 2017 where we will carry on from where we left off today!

Thanks so much for coming along, and again, you’re most welcome to leave a comment or ask a question below if you wish to do so, thanks and …

Cheers,

Jacqueline

Hey there Jerome,

Yes, it's a very exciting project and I'm over the moon to be able to finally create an Authority Site.

You're a treasure for saying... "have a fun time with your daughter".

We live in the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand and I traveled from the BOP to Auckland yesterday with my oldest daughter. I have 2 amazing girls and the youngest one is off on her Big OE.

We had a lovely night last night together finishing off her packing and enjoyed a lovely dessert together.

Up this morning bright and early and had a lovely brekkie. We headed for Auckland Airport and seen Miss Traveler off on her Intrepid Journey - Woohoo for her!

It's exciting times for everyone in my immediate family at the moment Jerome - isn't life amazing!

Thanks for your time in leaving me such a lovely comment.

Catch you tomorrow,

Cheers,

Jacqueline

Hey Eric,

That's great that the posts are helpful, and I know what you mean about things being done a different way than yourself.

I'm now finding that I really like the way that Jay (magistudios here in WA) does things as he explains everything and always gives a reason why.

I like to know the reason I'm doing something, it helps to build confidence and I think it also helps you get a better result.

Cheers Eric,

Jacqueline

Jay does a really great job. I like his explanations. Some people find he talks too much and moves too slow forward. I think he has the right speed. Especially when he talks about something new to me.
Have a great Sunday Jacqueline!

I am struggling. Online marketing is new to me. I am in the kindergarten of learning with all the overwhelming amount training and tasks to learn and do. I make a ton of mistakes.
I do a lot of the tasks on faith that the training provides. I become frustrated quite a bit because I finish a course and go back to the beginning and start over. Some courses as many as two to three times. My computer skills are improving along the way.
For me, it is like learning a foreign language. I am learning every day. I'm finding my balance between family, work and my business.
I have to get over my pride and ask more questions, instead of working through them myself. I feel like I'm bothering people with my problems when I know they are trying to get their business off the ground.
Which comes from a trade I'm in which when you asked a question was told it was a trade secret, figure it out lol. My friends, co-workers, and some of my family are negative. Saying that they don't understand why I am wasting my time with Wealthy Affiliate.
I've learned to channel their negativity into a positive motivating myself to an "I'll show them." attitude. I'll never give up. My day is coming when I'll be sitting at the dining room table waving to them as they fight the traffic to punch in at work. lol
Thanks for your concern,
Kevin

Thanks for your straight and honest reply... I love it.

Yes I get you about not asking, but here at WA it's a totally different story - ask, ask and ask some more.

I'm here to help as I know I've now accumulated a lot of information over the years, AND I KNOW FOR ME, my successes would have come a lot quicker if there was someone I could go to for answers OR at least another outlook.

You're more than welcome to send me a private message with a link to the website you're currently building.

If you decide to do so, let me know what you're struggling with, I can take a look and see where I can help.

I'm never too busy to help someone else out. It may take a day or so to get back to you as I'm more than likely in a different time zone to you, BUT, I WILL get back to you for sure.

I look forward to hearing back from you Kevin,

Cheers,

Jacqueline

PS You have this handled Kevin especially since you've been at it for a while AND you're still persisting. You definitely want this since you're still here and I'm glad you're not going to give up.

Let me help where I can!

The training is coming along slowly but consistently. I'm still working out getting more into a routine to balance all that's going in my life, but just getting on here for a couple hours per day has been very helpful.

Sometimes it can take a while to get into a routine and working out what time is best for your online business, I'm proud of you for keeping at it as it can be an overwhelming task to find the time.

As you will already know, this is a mid to long term strategy, you have an awesome opportunity to create a business that can have the real possibility of paying you over and over for years to come.
