Jason here from sunny California. I'm a father of two beautiful little girls. I enjoy sports (football!), fishing, watching movies, video games, travel, reading, and working online.

I've been with Wealthy Affiliate for over 2 years now and loving the experience and all that I've gained.

I've realized that you can probably learn how to start an online business on your own, but that could take years and years. Not to mention your going to spin your wheels a lot - which ultimately is why so many people fail or quit or both...

Using Wealthy Affiliate saves you a lot of time, money, energy, and questions while providing you with a clear plan to building success.

Thanks JasonHeard I appreciate it very much. I am new to the online money making idea and have been looking for something legit just to make some extra cash. I am out of work right now and have been searching and searching for anything that isn't a scam and it seems like everywhere I go it is a scam. This site seems legit but I have nothing to sell or offer so i'm unsure how to make money. Anyways....thanks again.

Hey Shawn, be sure to go through the training when you get the chance.

You can find the first lesson just below or by clicking the green 'Get Started Here' button in the menu on the left: With affiliate marketing, one of the ways in which you can earn money that is taught here, you don't need to own or purchase any items in order to sell and make money.

Hi Jason

I have a quick question in regarding of my monthly payment, my due payment will be on 18 August for $49.00. WA will send me an email for remember me or I just go ahead for payment. Just because when I go to payment site it says for annual year only?

Can you please help me with this.

Thanks
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Hi Rocio,

The payments will be taken out automatically each month unless you choose to cancel your account. At which point the billing will stop.

So there's nothing you need to do on your end.

Since you are already monthly Premium, the yearly offer is what you will see on that page.

Hi Jason

I have plan of my niche is about in pets supplies, I think my target could be of dogs and cats relating of training and behaviour products. There are a lot of stuffs for pets, Please let me know that this target would be a good idea.

Thanks

JasonHeard Premium
Pet supplies may be a bit broad.

But it sounds like you just found your niche when you shared dog training and behavior products or cat training and behavior products. I would choose one or the other.

These are good ideas Rocio.

Hi Jason, Thank you for your support letter. I'm impressed with your results after 2 years with WA. I've been learning about WA and the need for the service. The problem I'm having is that because I have so many different interests I don't know what to build my webpage about? Do you have any suggestions on what subject would be more interesting? Something that would have more of a need? Thanks

JasonHeard Premium
Hey, as far as adding affiliate links to your site, I think this lesson from phase 2 of the training will be beneficial: You mention having 4 links, is this from the 'Links & Tracking' section found here in WA? You can create more links (your own custom links as an entrance to WA), but as far as the ones provided, you can test the different links on your website to see how they do.

What are these official game rules exactly? Did you type the PDF up yourself?

Hi Jason,

I want to thank you for writing an honest review on AWOL Academy. I was deceived, like many, to buy into a fraudulent coaching course that made promises it can't keep, but I requested my refund in good time. So thank you for the effort and time you put into making that information available, especially for recommending a genuine course.

Peace be with you,

I have chosen a theme with WA but would like to delete it and upload a zip theme from my pic I have tried but it won't upload and comes up with an error I think we can only upload 32 mb I'll have to check size if zip file. Hope can get this sorted out somehow. Thankyou
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
I see you opened a question about this using the traditional method of Appearance > Themes.

If this is not working, ensure that you are uploading the right file for the theme and not a folder for the theme consisting of several different files. This practice usually works.

I have had to use Filezilla in the past to upload certain items to my website, it is an option but one that can be tricky.

A third option would be to contact SiteSupport on this matter. They should be able to help you get this sorted out.

If you need help with Filezilla or anything else, I will be happy to help where I can.

Hi Jason,

I am finally up to building my website and have just obtained the domain for my Niche. I am a bit stuck at the moment as there is no theme for my Niche it may need to be set up a bit different as a forum as well. Your advice would be appreciated.

Thankyou

Most themes are pretty customizable, it may become a matter of finding one that is appropriate and making it 'yours'.

Do some searching on Google, you are not limited to the ones displayed in the WP back office.

As far as inserting a forum, there are plugins for that. Have a look at this article regarding forum plugins when you get the chance:

I'll view other sites within my chosen Niche to get an idea,there's about 14 that I have found so far. Where can u refer me to for themes they may charge to set up the whole site and free ones I'm not sure how well they rank in searches. How would I link it back into the. WA area. Thank you.
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Once you find a theme you like, it would be a matter of downloading that theme to your computer, and then adding it to your website.

This can be done by clicking on 'Upload Theme' once in the add a new theme area. (See image).

I personally use Thrive Themes and have done so for the past year. They have a variety of themes to choose from, however, it does cost - their are plenty of free themes to choose from within WP.

Christiarna1 Premium
Many thanks I'll look there

Christiarna1 Premium
I have viewed Thrive Themes quite impressive, would you suggest I also take in their courses as well, the sign up cost is reasonable for membership if it gives me something viable to use alongside of WA.
Also if choosing a theme can changes be made to the template if I need to ad video etc, or can the whole template be changed to suit the niche possibilities.
When setting up my site how do I use the themes and tool structure from Thrive if I choose and add it to my site with WA and how many pages does each have. Sorry for so many questions its difficult to communicate via email when just learning its all new.
Also does WA allow Skype contact for guidance with its members
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
A lot of what they send in their emails and the courses are relevant to what we are doing in terms of building a business. I won't say that it's 'advanced' training, but some of it may not apply right now.

I personally love the fact that they send out helpful tips through email every now and then.

Most WP themes are completely customizable, so yes. Adding video is quite easy to do!

You create the pages, so depending on how many you have now and how many you plan on creating in the future. There's no limit.

As far as I know, WA does not have skype or any similar communication. Hope this helps!

Hey Jason, I think I'll take you up on that offer to ask you a question. As you know, I'm brand new and workin on building my first site. I'm having a difficult time copying and pasting the html code from Amazon into one of my blogs. I'm not able to place the picture of what I am wanting to sell in my blog. When I copy the html code, it posts just that, the code. Any tips or tricks you can offer a newbie? I know how to just use the hyperlink text, but I want to do the image and text option. The code is below. Am I supposed to copy all of this (which I have tried) or do I leave some of it out?

<iframe style="width:120px;height:240px;" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" src="//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822>
</iframe>
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Sure thing Greg!

You will need the entire code and one way to make this appear within the blog would be to paste the code into the 'Text' area and not the 'Visual'. (See image).

You will have to adjust it accordingly so that it shows where you like it within the text. Also, you can click on 'Preview' after inserting the code to make sure that it is working.

Let me know how this works out!

gmoneycarr Premium
Thanks Jason! That did the trick. I had another unrelated question. I understand the customer's buying cycle and most likely, they will not buy the first time they visit my site and click on a link. Let's say they click on the link and it takes them to amazon, but they do not buy and a couple days later, they decide to buy, but go directly to Amazon.com. Does amazon capture their information and know that I drove them to to Amazon and will therefore pay me? Or, is that just part of the deal that if they don't buy immediately you "lose out?"
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
That's a good question.

Amazon has a 24 hour cookie that is set once someone clicks on your Amazon affiliate link. If someone decides to make a purchase or several purchases within the 24 hour time frame you get credit. It does not have to be the product you initially directed them to from your website either. You still get credit.

I think the 24 hour cookie is a positive, but just so you are aware, other affiliate programs aside from Amazon have longer times. I've heard of them ranging from 24 hours to 30 days. Depending on the affiliate program.
Reply
gmoneycarr Premium
Thanks Jason. That kind of stinks given that I now understand the purchase cycle and most people don't buy right away, but I guess that's where building the relationship and the follow up comes into play. I am now on Course 3 lesson 3 and trying to crush as much content as possible so I am definitely learning. Appreciate the responses

Hi,
Apparently Jason, you have done very well for yourself in a quick period of time.
On the other hand I have been plugging along for a couple of years, yet have not been able to get my affiliate links to generate any conversions.
I am working full time as a reacher, so I only put in an hour or 2 in a day.
I do love this place and the opportunity to meet others around the world and share and learn from them along with the terrific training here at WA.
However, I could use a helping have to get this going. If you could take a look at what I have going here and make a suggestion(s) for me I would greatly appreciate the advice.
Thank you,
Randy

Hi Randy, I admit to seeing your message, taking mental note of it, then forgetting to respond after getting caught up in day to day tasks.

I apologize and have just stumbled upon it again.

It's evident your website has a solid foundation in place, so all of the "meat" is in place with your pages, WA promotion, etc.

I can only recommend focusing on keywords when you go to create new Posts. Some of the keywords you may be targeting or either getting no searches or has too much competition.

I am only basing this on some of the titles I see for your recent blog posts. Like "swinging the pendulum", too much competition. "What was the #1 scam in 2016", 0 searches.

Almost every time I go to create a new post or page, I do some keyword research to seek out keywords related to my niche and that have low competition and get searches (low hanging fruit keywords). The keyword is then placed within the title, within the first paragraph (sometimes), maybe 1-3 times throughout the text, and within the Alt Text of images (some people dislike this practice).

If you scroll to a recent conversation on my profile here, you will see my spiel on keywords (my understanding on keywords at least).

Hope this helps.

Hi Jason. I'm just checking out your feed and soaking up your words of wisdom. I have pressed the "Build Your Website" a few times and then chicken out. I guess I feel I don't have control and maybe am not sure what really happens if I build a website. Does it only stay in WA or does it truly go out into the WORLD?
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Once you create a website, it will be live on the internet.

Do not let this intimidate you or hold you back from continuing with the training. Every single website out there (Facebook, Youtube, Amazon, whatever) all started out with a very basic looking website.

Not to mention you will not likely be dealing with much, if any, visitors right away. As you are building out your website, adding content, and making it more user-friendly, traffic will start to trickle in.

Everyone has had to start somewhere. Your website won't be perfect at first. It's completely normal.

Thank you Jason! I need help because I'm lost, my web page is lost too! So happy to see that the questions can be answered again. I'm now trying to work from my laptop because my phone may not show all I need to see??? I think I will start at the beginning and see if I can get it right! I don't see my site or the pages don't look like the videos, no privacy page at all! I have so many questions and problems haha.
Thank you for any information you can give me!

Hi Jason, thanks for reaching out. Basically, I'd like to figure out how to make money online by posting a few short books or articles on something like "Seven Simple-But-Sure Keys to a Successful & Fulfilled Life". I've got some simple but powerful content and advice that I've learned over my life and would love to share it with others and make some money doing so. I would like people to many references such as books, health and food sites, and also have a proprietary decision-making tool I've developed myself that I could sell for a small amount, like $5. Any thoughts, suggestions or advice you have would be welcomed!

JasonHeard Premium
Sounds good Roberto, you can definitely share your experience and advice within your own website. Creating an ebook is also an option and you could promote your ebook within your website. Just a suggestion.

The main training here focuses on affiliate marketing which would allow you to promote/sell the products and services of others. There's thousands of affiliate programs and millions of products and services to choose from. The idea here is to choose a particular niche (or market) and to build a business around that.

Health, books, and food are all very broad categories. I would go with one of these categories that you are most interested in and sum it up a bit.

For example, health. There's many, many niches within the health area: men's health, women's health, mental health, weight loss, teeth whitening, you could focus on a particular age group as well; the list goes on and on here.

If you have your own product or tool, you could follow the training here and learn how to market that. Instead of joining an affiliate program, as you will come across within the lessons, you would fill in your product.

Lots of options here, I suggest choosing a niche to start with and begin the training!

JasonHeard Premium
Hi Stan, you're not doing anything wrong, you may just need to assign the 3 pages that you have created to the header menu (so that it can appear up top).

This will be true for any page you create moving forward. Just so you know Posts are different than Pages. By default, Wordpress usually will assign any Post you create to the homepage.

As for the Pages, you will need to go to Appearance > Menus from the wordpress dashboard. (See image 1).

You can name the menu anything you like (something like Header Menu would be fine) so that you are organized as you will be creating more menus moving forward.

Next step is to assign your published pages to that menu. (See image 2). This should do the trick.

If your pages aren't published just yet, you can come back to this later when they are published. The lessons on setting up menus is in the second level of training, just so you know.

Let me know if you need further help with this!

Hi Jason, I just went through the first email you sent me, and I understand fully what you mean, that if I want to make a success of my online business I need to work hard at it, and I am realistic, so I don't expect to get rich quick, since I myself don't believe in these so called get rich quick schemes that I have come across online, and I will admit I almost fell for some of them, but when I looked at them fully, I realized they were too good to be true. So I am already enrolled at WA, I am lesson 7, and I am going over them to make sure that I understand everything that is being taught to me, and you really inspired me when you said that you have been doing this for a year so far and you've been able to make a full-time income from doing affiliate marketing, so you've given me something to work towards and following your advice to make sure and work hard and give my business time to grow, I will succeed. Thanks for your advice and that you are making yourself available in case any newbies like me have any questions.

Create a Footer menu following the same steps as before and add the Privacy Policy page to it.

Next head to Appearance > Widgets. From here you can add the 'custom menu' to the Footer Section by clicking on 'custom menu'.

Last, click on the Select Menu option and choose the new menu you have created for the Footer.

I will attach an image. My widgets area may look a little different, this is only because our themes are different. Regardless there should be a Main/Sidebar/Footer area.

As for the SEO description and title, this may be part of your All In One SEO settings. Are these areas blank?

Hi Jason, yes, read your message and referral to boot camp, want to get first site stable first. Having problems loading pics from both platforms given. They either will not load at all or I get an http error. If I could load my pics I could get on with training. I did look at boot camp start page, though. I am very frustrated right now and really prefer Web sites set up for me now. I am getting too old to be patient enough for web site building anymore. Everything changes so much so fast and every site I have ever worked on all use different programs to build their Web sites. Just cannot afford it! I set up a Web site on Etsy before I joined here and was really simple for a shopping cart site. I know pics are probably wrong size but this program does not give you pixel and cropping choices? Anyway, don't know if we will get this solved before my 7 days are up but will try. Will you still be available to me after that? I know Kyle probably won't, I am sure he and Carson have their hands more than full. I really do not see how they have time enough to answer as many questions as they do, as I can barely keep up with this, lol. Also tried to change profile avatar on site Rubix but more involved than I would like again. Why not just upload a pic there, so much simpler? Hope you are having a good day. Thank you for your help so far. I prefer not to go to live chat until I have Web sites up and running which will be after I set up a Premium account. And yes, lol, I do realize it takes longer than a week. As I said earlier, I set up Etsy in a day or two and have already had hits but may be month or so before I actually sell anything due to my product choice-handmade items I make myself. It takes longer for them to ship so not as many sales, but here I will use links to sell other like retail ready products. That is also why I am looking at the affiliate site here, it does not involve hard copy product! Well enough for now. Anxiously awaiting your reply.

When you visit the training, the images for that training aren't loading? How about video, are you able to view the videos within the lessons?

Only thing I can think of is the connection not coming in too well. You can try clearing your browser history and then revisiting the lessons.

When it comes to the websites, you can either pay for someone to do it for you (I don't know where), purchase a pre-built website, or you have to do it on your own. WA will walk you thru the steps of setting up your own site.

To change your avatar within Wordpress, you will need to set up a Gravatar account. Have you made it to that part of the training?

My advice would be to take it one step and one lesson at a time. All of these things will come together for you.

It could take longer than a week before earning any money. It could take several months. But, you never know :)

A reason your site could be displaying the error message above is because you just moved the site to the new domain name.

It should clear soon, but feel free to contact SiteSupport if this problem remains:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

As far as being indexed in Google, this can take some time as well. Keep in mind your site is still new, it could take 7 days to a couple of weeks.

Glad to see you are taking the right steps, keep building!

can i get input on my about me page:It all started around 2007. I began selling items on ebay. I was doing okay. Then in 2015 I borrowed $5000.00 from my dad,decided to upgrade to wholesaling on ebay. I bought some pallets from wholesale vendors, again I did alright but I had an excess of inventory. The pallets where inconsistent & contained odd lots. So I still sell on ebay. Then I decided to look at drop shipping and that`s where I discovered this great company Wealthy affiliate.

Thanks.

There is no right or wrong about me page, you can always revisit and edit the About page of your site later down the line if you feel it needs improving.

Depending on your niche, I don't see anything wrong with what you have written here.

Hi Jason. Hope all is well your way. I've not given up. Gotta get to my website and make it catchy and spiffy. I've not been on the computer in a couple of days. I have in BOTH, not just the left BOTH ULNAR NERVE ENTRAPMENT. So, I'm pecking, LOL, not typing. Waiting on neurologist to schedule surgery..............one arm (elbow) at a time. GRRRRRRRR. Anyhow, tears in my eyes when I saw Kyle and Carson extended the trial run. I was so excited. Hope to talk soon. I have no idea what I'm doing on my website. I don't like the music theme I chose, but I don't now how to change it. Can't PM you. LOL don't have that privilege yet. Going to leave Kyle the same message (copy and paste comes in handy sometimes, right?). He had tried to contact me as well to see if I needed any help. I love this community.
Ciao, Toni

Hi Toni, glad to hear you're still working on your site, and hopefully, surgery goes well and they can get you scheduled soon!

To change your theme, head to Appearance > Themes > look for the Add New button towards the top.

From here you will be able to browse different themes and if one catches your eye, you can install it to your Wordpress dashboard. You can even do a "live preview" before activating a new theme to your site to ensure it's the one you want.

Let me know if you need further help with this, and I agree, this community rocks!

It's 6am Eastern Time. I've not been to bed yet. I'm gonna try and get some rest before my two tests today. I believe I started my website from Affiliate Boot Camp. I went with Marketing With Toni, but have no idea what to do next. Read the next lesson, right? Anyhow, just wanted to update you. This site is addictive. I've been on here for at least 12 hours. Live chat, chit chatting with others, getting ideas from you and started Boot Camp. I won't be back on today until probably around 6pm EST. I've got to figure out what to do next now that there's a website. Marketing With Toni Thank you Jason

I'm going to change the name to Reece Affiliate Marketing dot com. Now, how do I change the name on the website I started. Trying to figure that out now. Do you like that name? Someone in the community said the name demanded respect. And I think it flows when you say it. :-) Hope you've had a good day
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
That name is fine as well and any final name that you decide on is totally up to you.

As far as changing the url to reeceaffiliatemarketing.com, you can either start another (siterubix) site or if you decide to purchase a domain for this site, you can change the name to anything you like at that time.

You can also change the name by visiting Settings > General from the Wordpress dashboard. This will not change the url (.com) however.

I've been thinking all day. Had another doctors appointment today, and zoned out and the doctor asked me if I understood what he said, and I answered, sure.......and asked how do you feel about online jobs? He just looked at me and said, "I knew you weren't paying attention." HA well no, I have to snap to it to get my online business up and running. <giggle> I think I caused a bit of irkiness (new word) he had to repeat. Sorry, but my mind is going 90mph..................I got leads in the waiting room. I got a total of 12 emails LOL

Hi Jason. I'm stuck on building my two websites. To sign up with the affiliate programs you have to have a website name. I think I'm going to do two websites. One for Auto Parts and one for Tires and Rims. What does AvoidingTheBreakdownAutoParts sound like? and what does WhereTheRubberMeetsTheRoadTiresandRims sound like? I've not been on line in a couple of days. Have to go have two tests tomorrow and possibly surgery so that's been on my mind. Any suggestions on catchy names for the two websites would be great. I know .................I can feel it in my bones this will work. I have nothing to lose if I try. Hope you've had a great weekend. I'm also going to send Kyle a message. :-) Thank you for all your help. Oh, Oh, do you know how I would go about offering a free Ebook is someone orders from my website. Everyone loves frees stuff, right?
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Hi Toni, this weekend has been great. I hope your weekend was well and also hope surgery goes well!

I like the names, have you considered Avoidbreakingdown(.)com or Wheretherubbermeetstheroad(.)com?

I feel like adding 'tires and rims' for example, could be redundant. People will easily be able to recognize what your site is about while visiting. We also would need to check which domains are available.

As far as the ebook, you can certainly incorporate this into your site. It's an excellent way to build an email list.

For the time being, I will advise you to stick with the training and to build a strong foundation for your site prior to focusing on the ebook. I can certainly help you with this in the near future.

I don't want to get too far ahead of the training :)

In the Affiliate Boot Camp to promote WA what do you think of these? MarketingWithToni ???? TonisMarketingWebsite ???? ReeceAffliateMarketing ???? YAY ? NAY ? I'm unable to put dot com (have to spell it out LOL) because I'm not a premium yet. And I'm sooooooooooooo confused. Should I go through boot camp completely now?
I'm on Course 1 lesson 4 that requires I do a webpage I LOVE Avoidbreakingdown and WhereTheRubberMeetsTheRoad I agree adding tires and rims could be redundant. I can feel it in my bones. I think they would bring a lot of traffic. I have to start somewhere..............and at first I don't succeed........I go back to the drawing board.............brush myself off, get back up on the horse. Thank you for your help

I like Marketing With Toni, but suggest only taking on one course at a time. Either the Getting Started Here lessons or the Bootcamp lessons.

Too many lessons and too many sites can become overwhelming. Once you have your first site established (one or two sites), and get a better feel for what you are doing, then it is a good time to branch out and create these other income streams.

You are free to create as many sites as you like, its just best to focus on one early on and I am speaking from personal experience.

Hi Jason. I may have my niche, but would like your input. I come from building up an automotive repair shop/towing service for 12 years. Everyone is always looking for auto parts, wheel rims and tires. How well do you think if my niche were auto parts and tires and wheel rims? Advance Auto, Napa and other parts stores, tire stores have an affiliate program. Is this how I start my website? I guess I'm still a bit confused about that. Is my question making any sense to you? LOL Thank you, Toni
PS? I need to do some more research on it, but wanted to get your opinion. I'm also asked Carson and Kyle. :-) Thank you again.

JasonHeard Premium
Hi Toni, you have the right idea here, however I fear auto parts alone may be too broad.

There's gaskets, engines, headlamps, wheels, brakes, batteries, etc, etc.

Wheels (tires and rims) alone could be a niche. You can even narrow this down a bit into "wheels for suv's" - just as an example.

A lot of options here and Yes you are correct, there are also a lot of affiliate programs out there for auto parts!

There is a learning curve involved, keep in mind that we were ALL new to this at one point. A lot of what you are learning now will come to you naturally over time.

Building a business (online or offline) doesn't happen over night and is not a "fast" solution to income. It can take a few months or longer.

It's NO race but some people earn quicker than others. One thing is for certain though, if you follow the training here you will experience success.

Either course you decide to follow (the Get Started Here or Bootcamp) will provide you with a clear path.

It comes down to taking action and applying everything that you see Kyle applying to his site in the training, to your own site.

The Bootcamp will help you learn how to create a niche 'promoting' Wealthy Affiliate. While the Get Started Here lessons will help you establish a niche following one of your passions/hobbies/interests.

And of course if you need any help along the way with the training, have any issues with your site(s) or need anything at all, you have an entire community here that you can lean on.

Sorry to hear that you lost your job, I know how it is out there and lost my job several months before finding WA.

I'm just beginning in the online market, but I know there is great money to be made.

I'm writing you because you are one of the best money makers on here. I want to start making good money online, and I don't want to wait 3 months to see an $8 sell.

If you could, check out my website newbiestoonlinemarketing.com I would love to hear some powerful feedback and ideas you might have to help me start making real money.

I don't have a lot of website experience, but I'm learning through the bootcamp. Thank you so much, and looking forward to hear your feedback.

Hey Alan,

Honestly, I am still in the beginning/learning stages myself, and still have a ways to go :)

I've been able to earn a consistent income by following the same Bootcamp training, and believe me it took me longer than 3 months to get where I'm at.

There's no shortcuts, just stick with the training.

That being said, your site appears to be on the right track and your niche is perfectly clear. Your out to help newbies learn/understand how to earn money online.

Now it's only a matter of working your way through the Bootcamp and adding more content. Your own skills and website will develop along the way.

Hi Jason,

I hope everything is doing well. I just want to ask about the keywords thing... I just don't understand, after searching for keywords what shall I do with that? Shall I put it inside my article also? I just don't know what to do with those things... Maybe you could help me...

Thank you,

Keywords play an important role, and locating the right ones (as taught in the training) will make a huge difference.

Once you have your keywords and have done the research on them, you can apply them to different Posts and Pages as you are creating them.

Each new Page/Post should have a keyword as the TITLE.

Try to put the keywords inside the article as well. Usually within the first paragraph.

Don't overuse the keyword within a single article, 2 to 3 times is enough.

If you have any images in your articles, which you should, I also like to enter my keywords into the 'Alt Text' area.

You can do this as soon as you add a new image to an article (see attachment).

Other then that, here's a few tutorials regarding keywords that I find to be extremely helpful:

Kyle teaching the Alphabet Soup technique, it works wonders and will help come up with many ideas for future Posts: Also, here's a training by Steve and how he adds additional keywords into his articles 'naturally': These techniques will help with gaining traction within the search engines and visitors to your site.

Let me know if you need more help with keywords!

Hi Jason, I kind of getting the hang of this slowly. But I think something is not working with my premium status. I get this message when I try to access of customize themes.

Oops! Editing Themes is Restricted to Premium Wealthy Affiliate Members Only.

Extending the functionality of your website can be done by Upgrading to a Wealthy Affiliate Premium membership.

I did up grade Monday so why is this happening?

Hello, hope you're having a great weekend thus far.

You will begin to structure your website more in Course 2 Lesson 7 - Enhancing Your Website "Experience".

Here you will begin setting up your main menu, sidebar, etc.

Brand new sites usually don't look too attractive when first starting out, but it'll get there.

Try and keep with the lessons :)

Thanks Jason. I have a question, Do you think it would be best to wait until I'm a premier member to start working on my website? Or start one now?
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
I would start now!

At the time being, you have two free websites (WEBSITE.siterubix.com). Premium allows you to host your own domain (WEBSITE.com) and opens up everything else WA has to offer for building a business.

You can start building your 'siterubix' website now following the training and if you decide to become Premium later, you can easily transfer your website and all of it's work over to your own domain '.com'.

Ok thanks Jason that was helpful.
