Finally On The First Page Of Google!

Last Update: July 19, 2018


Finally I made it on the first page of Google and on the number 2 spot no less. I know it's not a huge accomplishment in the grand scheme of things but it is a step in the right direction. This is my second month here and I'm in a very competitive niche for this site, trying to promote Wealthy Affiliate is what I built the site around.

As many beginners in affiliate marketing know it can be very difficult to get ranked for Wealthy Affiliate (At least for me it is).

My post is on affjobs an affiliate marketing job board that just came out recently. (don't steal my article please lol) It's a very new job board for affiliate marketers that started earlier this year. So if you're interested in an affiliate job with a specific company then read the article and take a look at what they have to offer.

or you can go right to the Affjobs site [Here] Sorry had to remove this link my mistake!!! But the link is available through my site link up above ^^^^^^

But I'd prefer if you read the post and go through there or and comment if you have a moment but its totally up to you.

I have give the credit for 95% of the stuff I've learned so far to W.A. I know without this place I'd still probably be Googling how to make money online and most definitely not have any websites.

I still have a very long way to go but at least I'm making progress and always learning so I feel good about it so far.

one thing I just started trying to implement the other day was some of what I learned in Jay's training "21 Minute Ranking Method in 7 Steps". It's a long video but if your new its worth the watch. I found the webinar through another members training tutorial on here,

One thing I can suggest to new people here is take advantage of the W.A search bar for any questions you have. It's much better took look there first before looking in other search engines in my opinion.

Well I just wanted to post this to say I'm happy about making some progress and to tell anyone else new that they should check out that video.

I wish everyone here luck.

You do realize that posting affiliate links on WA is against the WA Terms and Conditions, right?

You might want to edit your post and remove the affiliate link, otherwise you might get flagged and banned from the site.

Now that you then know, why are you then not removing the affiliate link + link to your own website?

This is kevinv91 I tried to edit blog post after I saw the comments saying it was against the rules but when I went to my blogs I couldn't find out how to edit them so i went to bed and the next day i'm banned from writing I would have replied to you sooner but I cant talk to anyone I cant write whatsoever. I cant contact site support I am royally screwed for making a mistake I was unaware of and was banned instantly without an type of warning. emailed Kyle and Carson and wrote on there walls from this account but nobody is getting back to me. I had no clue this would happen or I wouldn't have done it in the first place. I was just copying stuff from my site to share what happened on WA. Do you know How I can get this ban lifted. Communication is a huge part of the service here. I love it here so far and don't want to have to leave because of a stupid mistake I made. Sorry for the rant but I'm freaking out a bit and nobody seems to want to help.

Hi Kevin. Sorry to hear this. You won't have to leave. It has happened to many others as we all make mistakes. If you have written Kyle and Carson and explained the situation I am sure one of them will get back to you but it sometimes takes a little time as they get hundreds of messages a day. Also you can try to contact support.

Hope you will soon get the ban lifted. But don't worry - there will be a solution. If you have not heard from them or Sitesupport soon you can also try to post a question to see what others in the same situation has done. It will at the same time be a great reminder to others about the rules.

thanks for the reply MikaelM You are the only one who has responded to me on this account lol. I just signed in and saw your comment,

Ya in the future I will make sure not to do that. I just wish they had a warning system here it would make out lives and theirs much easier. If they warned people and removed or suspended whatever they did wrong instead of instantly banning them It would be a much more efficient process IMO.

Thanks again for the reply I will try to stay patient and contact support. Take care

Great to see you back Kevin.

Just a little tip - it is not only affiliate links we are not allowed to post. We are also not allowed to post links to our own websites, so better to remove that link as well and avoiding doing it in the future.

In the rules I thought it says you can link to a outside website if it's relevant to what your topic is? I've seen many blogs that link to their own websites when the content is relevant to their post.
Reply

and then I saw this as well in a section of the rules:

No promotions with comments or chat. Although these may seem like subtle ways to promote, if you are caught doing this, you will likely lose privileges. If a link is posted out of an act to help someone, not sell something, that is OK.

Don't try to justify. Posting affiliate links of *any kind* is against the rules - JUST DON'T DO IT.

I noticed there is a lot of confusion with some of the rules. Some can be vague and it's hard to tell what you can and can't do at times.

The worst part is if you don't do anything outside of the rules and others mistakenly think you do and they flag your post you can be instantly banned for the wrong reason.I doubt it happens a lot but its a possibility,

I'm not? how did you interpret that from what I said? Linking to an outside website is not against the rules if your link isn't an affiliate link, I'm not trying to argue with you. I just wanted you to understand what I'm saying.

I know a lot of people are linking to their own site, but this is just a subtle promotion and the reason why many other communities are so full of spam and not realy help.

People are just there to "help" with links to their own site. And we are more than 1 million users here at WA and many of us write several posts every week that could all be relevant and helpful for others, but when it comes to it, we just should not share links to our own websites in the WA blogs. If you really look at it, it is always subtle self-promotion when this is done - also in a blog post like this where you linked to your own site:-)

Linking to external sites can sometimes be accepted when it is to help, but not to your own site. This would result in people just posting "helpful" links to their own site.

As for the rules it also says:
- we are firm on our stance on self promotion here at Wealthy Affiliate

- Do not post content where your readers are required to go to an external website to "read more".

- No signatures at the end of your posts (posting your website URL, image, etc)

- Anything else that you are knowingly doing in attempt to sell something.

- No adding affiliate links to any blog, training, discussion or private message

- No training should be focused around a promotion of a product or service or give half information. If it does, then it will be immediately removed from the training at WA and you may lose all privileges to post training in the future.


It should be pretty clear that we should not promote our own sites here on WA, but people keep misunderstanding them. Some because they are new, but some also knowingly do it to subtly self-promote. This should just be marked as spam right away so we can all help keep WA spam free - it is in all our interest not to allow this stuff or it will quickly turn into constant spam as so many other communities have

I just took out all the links except jays training to avoid any issues. I just asked Kyle directly and am waiting on a response, It he says it's okay then you may possibly see links to my site in future posts.

if I ever happen to have them from here on out it is only because he said it is allowed. just wanted to add that before individuals decide to flag anything I do in the future but I obviously can't stop anyone it's their own choice and I respect that.

Thanks for the comment.

You can definitely link to WA trainings and blog posts within WA. No problem about that.

But really hope Kyle does not say you can link to your own site - but also think about what I am saying is not to stop you specifically. But it will also affect you very much if this will be allowed. You should also be interested in keeping self-promotion out of WA.

If not the answers you will get in the future will just be. ´"Hey I just wrote a blog post about this here...." and then a link to their own site.

So I just do not understand why you want to fight so much for your right to promote your own site here, as you seem to be forgetting that it then goes for everyone else and the amount of spam this will lead to.

But would be great if you can still give an update when you hear from Kyle.

I'm not trying to fight for anything I just want to know if what I see many others do is allowed. Honestly its everyone's own choice whether they wish to view a persons blog or not and click whatever links they have in there.

if I read something I find interesting or that can benefit me while reading another persons blog post then yea I click it and go to their website. I personally don't see how that is a bad thing but that's only my opinion.

if someone wants to show how they had success with something or recommend something on their website that may help others I see that as a positive thing but again that is only my opinion. I understand where you come from with the whole spamming thing, I do but I personally feel that if those types a things are not allowed then certain blog posts here lose some value. If that's the case then so be it, it's the rules and I'll follow it.

As everyone here is working online we all kind of know what is and isn't B.S so we can easily decide if we want to look at a certain blog post or not.

People with that have good knowledgeable information are very likely to have that info on their website if that's their niche they are posting about which in turn could benefit others.

I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that's just mine. Nobody has to agree with it but maybe they can understand what my reasoning is for my opinion at least.
