I am Janice Palmer from Derbyshire, England. I'm in my early 60's and am looking for a way to supplement my pension. I've heard about making money online via working with affiliate products. So I searched Google and got lost!
However, I found the Wealthy Affiliate website - early May 2017. WA looks like an excellent place to find out how it's all done! Hmm. It seems that I've much to learn here. Oh well, let's see what fortune lies ahead for me!
Update: May 25, 2017 - week three into WA. Hmm, I am happy. I have a niche, an indexed website (with the https prefix), which is now gradually being populated with content. I am learning a lot about this online affiliate marketing game. I am giving feedback to other WA websites. I must have done something advanced - by signing up for Amazon Associates - without any WA training! I can now promote products on Amazon UK whenever I want to. WA Rank: 1,595, whatever that means!
Update: June 30, 2017 - I am learning a lot about this business. Running two websites is not on! It takes too much time for one person. I cannot do two things at once. So, I have DELETED my photography site, and I am concentrating on the BritishWildlifeFacts.co.uk site. This website has been live for nearly three weeks, has tons of content already (24 pages and 4 posts, added to daily), but not yet indexed. There are lots and lots of images, videos and fascinating information about the natural history of Britain. As soon as the site is indexed, it will become monetized.
Update: August 22, 2017 - 58 pages, 22 posts. All wonderfully rich content on bririshwildlifefacts.co.uk. Now being indexed. Monitoring what Goole sees on Google Console. Until there are lots of visitors coming to the website I will NOT monetize this site. What is the point? Becoming an authority site takes time. Only when my site has daily visitors coming by will I add Amazon and other affiliate products to my web pages. So far, not much traffic. Google and Bing are slow at indexing new uploaded posts and pages. 47 out of 58 pages indexed by Google. This process is going to take time. Putting bits of content on Google Plus seems to help with indexing.
Update: December 14, 2017 - 96 pages, 64 posts, 91 approved comments. I am now using Thrive Architect. I have links to Amazon products scattered around my web pages. As of today, no sales. The traffic I get is SMALL. I check that with Google Console and my Amazon Affiliate site. It seems that the time from May to December is NOT long enough to get search engine traction. I have visitors, but not may. Perhaps next year, 2018, will be when the search engines recognize that the britishwildlifefacts.co.uk website as a reliable authority site for people to visit for wildlife info. I'll see.
