WA Affiliate Program

Read about "Incognito Mode" from Pj Lucas' post recently. Learned about its benefits but also wonder would it cause some drawbacks to affiliate marketers on the other hand.

it will still work if they click and buy before they close their browser

I think the cookies will be stored as long as the browser is open, but will be deleted when browser is closed. So the whole come back in 24 hrs. thing won't be of any use. If they buy immediately, though, it shouldn't matter. That's the way I understand it. The incognito keeps the user from being identified and eliminates all ability to track after browser is closed. I think.

Thanks for sharing, good question. :))

Very good question. I would hope the system is correct, and would be so designed as not to flawed as with commission. Checking out the answers.

Affiliate cookies will be stored even if someone surfs incognito
John

I have been thinking about this question too. It seems that as more people start using the private or incognito mode affiliate marketing will suffer.

Maybe cookies will become a thing of the past and some new way of identifying the affiliate will take their place? I don't know what that will be though.

I think the incognito mode is only useful for you to check how you really fall on Google. Your WA link wherever placed should always track back to you I believe otherwise why would Kyle encourage us to use our affiliate link and post training on our site or FB page.

Hi Sandra, thanks for your feedback. I'm more concern about our visitors who surf on our websites and click on our affiliate links. If they use Incognito mode and it does not get our affiliate links stored, then we earn nothing in promoting the products.

good question! I assume that your incognito browser will not send any signal of whom you are and where but if a sale is made, it should not matter where the buyer is located...a sale is a sale

The most important thing is to get the cookies stored so that we could earn the commission within the certain period like 30 or 60 days. But read this note when I switched to Incognito Mode - "Pages you view in incognito tabs won't stick around your browser's history, cookie store, or search history after you've closed all of your incognito tabs."

Sorry that my question might be a bit confused. So I just attached a sample here for a clearer picture. I took Nathaniell's website as an example as he has

Looks like Marion has you covered.

http://wordpress.org usually has the answer to all WordPress related questions https://wordpress.org/support/topic/hide-menu-on-one-page-only ?replies=46 (remove the space)

Hi Marion, thanks! This is what I'm looking for - "Is it possible to hide the main menu for only one page using CSS or some other feature?".

I have searched from Wordpress.org and other forums too but don't know where to place the given codes. I tried to copy and paste the code in the css and editor but not worked.

Where should I place this sample given codes?

.page-id-2 #nav-container {
display: none;
}

Hello, This may help you.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/landing-pages/

Thanks, Elwin! It looks like something that I'm looking for it. Will take a look of the video and test on the plugin first.

I use Display Widgets plugin then just check off the pages

Hi Wayne, thanks for your feedback.

I use Display Widget too but this is more to control on the Sidebar only while the Menu Navigation remains there. I just wonder how a page could be looked like a clean single Landing Sale Page without Menu Navigation or sidebar but still part of the domain.

Oh okay sorry I didnt read the menu nav part

Dep[end on your theme. Some of mine have template options per page and post where you can choose full page, side bar left, side bar right, etc.....

Do you want this page hidden to the general public, as in not visible on any menu with access only through a link?

Hi Shawn, don't think it is due to the selected theme. Understood some of the theme very flexible and could any options of layouts of the Menu and sidebar.

My question is how to make 1 Special Page to EXCLUDE the Menu Navigation and Sidebar while other pages remain the default setting to be able to view the Menu and sidebar.

Will post an example shortly. Hope no offence to the owner of the website.

In fact not the matter hidden or not as it would be great to be indexed and ranked if the public could find it from their search.

It is more to lock the visitors from goinng to anywhere else. This is normally a SIngle Landing Page used by the seller to write a powerful long page to get the deal or visitor to signup. But I just want to do it as a page of the website instead of a Single Landing Page for 1 domain name.

Got it! Just exclude it from the menu. You will find a box that says include in menu on the lower right of your page in the edit mode, make sure it is unchecked. It will still be a public indexed page of your site but will not appear in any of your menus.
That help?

Hi Shawn, thanks for your kindness in helping. Yes, we can exclude any of the pages from appearing in the Menu (I think this is with Exclude Page plugin).

Just wonder how a page looks like the attached sample (the bottom page) where no Menu and sidebar, just a clean Single Page. This will help the conversion rate.

Would like to have a friendly site ends with the Pal or Buddy or Buddies but wonder which one sounds nicer and friendly? Would like to hear your opinion.

Thanks!

Hey, Buddy, can you spare a dime? Look Pal, either you pay for the drink or I'm calling the cops. How about friend?

agreed...great minds they say...lol

Hey, Broderick, thanks for being kind putting in such a good example for me. My buddy still considering whether to spare me a dime and my pal would never pay for the drink. Really appreciate your kind effort, dear friend, UncleYeti!

Jan, I think pal is fine.

Hi Alma, thanks for your opinion.

I think pal would work best for you, no matter the subject line.

Hi John, thanks for your comment.

It depends on the website - I presume you want domain name ideas. Not thinking of addressing visitors as pal, buddy.

Some types of content might sound better with pal than buddy for example.

Buddies sounds a bit childlike for some niches. But could be good for a with kids content - for example. Or when you want to use alliteration 'bathroombuddies' for example

Yeah, Ian, you got me. I just want to include it in my domain. Seems like not a good idea to use it after hearing the feedback here. Good to get the precious opinions from the members here. Give me a better idea. Thanks for your comment and advice too!

Good question Jan...

Personally, I try to keep it natural, and would expect that most others do the same...I have seen salutations that are all over the map in regards to the actual words or phrases used...

More important for me is the tone of the post or comment, the intent, etc. Friendliness is conveyed (or not) throughout...i.e. first person, personal experiences, style of writing that is easy to follow along with, etc.

Just be who you are...Helps the writer relate to the reader? That is enough for me...

Cheers!
Dave : )

Thanks, Dave! Like it - "just be who you are". This really helps the writer to write better when just be who you are.
Jan :)

Hi Jan , WA is a multi national platform, in our neck of the woods it is mate, bro, dog, dude classic. Perhaps I am getting older and conservative but I really like addressing folks by their first names.
Alexander

Hi Alexander, thanks that always have you here to answer my questions. I also like to address the friends here with their first name to show my sincerity in following them. Thanks for your feedback again!

Just my opinion. I wouldn't use those words at all unless it is towards someone you really know well. When a stranger calls another "pal" or "buddy", it is NEVER sincere. Why would you want to project insincerity to people you want to sell to?

Hi David, thought that "pal" or "buddy" sounds closer and sincere and didn't aware it means insincerity by calling in this manner. Just want to create a group with the same interest, so pal or buddy sounds like all in the same group. Learned something new today, thanks!

Hi, JanK88. It's not just "pal" or "buddy". If you met a person on the streets, and the first thing he/she tells you is "Hello, friend", how would you feel? That person can't possibly be a "friend" because you just met him/her and might not even know his/her name.

But I see what you're trying to do. You don't have to address your reader with any of the above words. Just be friendly in tone, don't sound cocky, arrogant, or condescending. Just be professional in your tone, and your message will be appreciated by everyone. :)

Thanks, David! It really true that if a stranger on the street called me friend, buddy or pal would definitely make me uneasy. But thought website is different and when a reader come to the site could be friends with the same interest, haha :)

Some people may not even care if you called them "friend" on a website. But some might notice it and feel the insincerity. Why take the gamble, right? :) After all, all you want is to sell to them, that's the important thing. :)

Right, pal? (haha, just kidding)

Thanks, pal (haha... I really treat you as a sincere friend!) Appreciate your input :)

depends. I feel like pal and buddy can be condescending. I'd prefer buddy (buddies) of the two though.

Thanks, Elle! I have the same feeling to use "buddy". Wonder any difference between "buddy" and "buddies" or it is just plural for the later...

All depends "mate" in the type of "friends" or "dudes" you want to attract - what words will go before the words as well ??? Best regards your "sidekick" Paul

Thanks, Paul! 9to5Buddy, 9to5Buddies or 9to5Pal sounds better?

I'd personally stick with friends.

Hi Jason, thanks for your opinion. Thought that buddy, buddies or pal sounds closer and more friendly as thinking to use it as part of the domain name.

If I were using it in a domain main, I think "buddy" would be my choice. "pal" can be mistaken for something else, but not "buddy". Plus, "buddy" is shorter than "buddies". Just my own personal thought. :-) Good luck with your choice! Diana

Just wonder could we upgrade our hosting to VPS in future within WA or should we move our websites out if need to host VPS out there in FUTURE?

Thanks for asking this question. I had never heard of VPS prior to reading this.

What is VPS?

VPS is "Virtual Private Servers".

Generally there are 3 types of hosting provided in the market:

1) Shared Server: A number of website owners hosted their websites in a shared server which is very much cheaper and most of the website owners getting this service in the market. GoDaddy, Hostgator, Fatcow and others where you find a cheap hosting package is under this category.

Our current WA Hosting should be this category but believe it is much better than other providers named above and out there with smaller in size each shared server.

This is good for small sites that have moderate web traffic and limited dynamic elements at an economical cost.
--------------------------------------------------------
2) VPS: Similar to Shared Server that sharing a server among some website owners but it is a semi-private server that hosts a smaller number of customers. Much expensive than the above hosting but better performance with a smaller number of websites sharing a server.

This is good for growing sites with dynamic content or e-commerce capabilities that need high performance and the flexibility to adjust server resources as they expand, but want to avoid too expensive usage fees.
--------------------------------------------------------
3) Dedicated: Own Private Server without sharing with other. Only need this at an advance level very well growing business. Very expensive.

This is good for rapidly expanding or thriving websites that need high security, optimal performance, and rapid response times.

----------------------------------------------------
You may find the information at http://whois.domaintools.com about your hosting and domain information, Attached is an example where this website is hosted in WA Hosting at the IP Address 54.204.43.219 and there are 1,286 websites hosted on this server.

Hope my understanding about hosting is right at my elementary level.
