About Klrrider
Joined October 2007
Hi, my real name is Robert (Bob) Hemken Jr. (Jr...lol) pretty much average in every way with the exception of my desire to be a successful internet marketer.

Toyed with the idea off and on since I purchased my first computer in '95. Some limited experience with eBay and selling exotic birds in free classifieds but didn't really understand things until I joined WA. This site is the greatest! Thank you Kyle and Carson. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? It just takes a little longer!

Used to belong to 3 membership sites, Started out with Profit Lance. Good but a bit outdated however it is a one time membership fee ($97 lifetime) and was a good place to start.

Joined WA about 6 months later. I picked PL first because I was not to keen with the idea of a monthly charge. Boy was that a mistake! WA is the greatest! Not long and my membership fee was not an issue since I was able to make some sign-ups.

I also belonged to another instructional site that almost rivaled (for a time) this one although it is set up quite different and was more expensive (when WA was $40.). What I really like about it is all the instruction is in HD Videos that you could view online or download to your computer.

I was able to cover expenses there with their affiliate program (in less than 14 days). However as time progressed WA left this site in the dust, especially when WP Express was implemented here. Their content became stale and they started gravitating towards being a motivational - mindset type of membership which seem more like propaganda to me, so I dropped them to move on.

I personally find it easier to learn from videos and with the upgrade here to WA Platinum, Kyle and Carson are utilizing more of them. The Share Zone has some impressive tutorials and we are starting to see a few videos there that are very helpful, especially for Newbies.

Although I hate pot pies, Pot Pie Girl is the greatest so be sure to check out her simple, down to earth tutorials in the share zone. There is good reason she is a high ranking member here.

Thank you Kyle and Carson for this GREATEST of all learning communities. I would also like to thank Rob and Priest for getting me back(linking) on track! LOL. Special KUDOS to Marcus for keeping me in line and all you WAers are much appreciated...keep up the good work, especially inside WA.

Hi Bob, great introduction. I'm fresh into WA. I joined some time ago with a venture I started with a friend. Sadly my laptop with all my credentials got stolen so I've found my way back with another opportunity to turn somethings around again. Great to read a story like yours, really was drawn to your profile by your bike. Hope you are still going strong with the WA community! You have one more add to your network.

You've got a really unique story - it's interesting to see how your time doing IM over the years has changed. I can't actually remember how I ended up at WA, but someone certainly is making a load of cash off of me (in affiliate commissions). I'm following you now, so all posts from now on better be great! :)

I have dozens of them... just don't post them. It is a good idea to keep your cards close to your vest. It is not all that hard to figure out what keywords a site is going after and I have even had content stolen so I made the decision about a year ago to delete them from my profile. My very first one I built is klrrider.com and one of my favorites is ronniestickets.com if you would like to see a couple.

That would be Maverick Money Makers... great site with all video instruction which worked for me since I comprehend better watching than reading. Was to expensive to stay for me at the time... $97 month. Also their content wasn't updated as it should be and a lot of motivational recoirdings were added which is a turn off for me... In the mean time WAU has upped the ante with tools, and much more detailed instruction... vids too! Best place to be for the money. Wish you the best!

Here is a program I hope you will take a look at. And a question for you. Why are people so afraid today to take a very small risk (heck no risk right now) in a prelaunch program that can really help them to grow their business by leaps and bounds? Go here now and just take a look around. Just copy and paste the link. Seems like WA won't let it become a clickable link. http://www.zingbizpro.com/?ZBP?=hotbizman

Not sure why but most marketers have seen just about everything and it takes a lot to get their confidence. Speaking for myself... I IM to get away from the usual "work" aspects of a job or even your own business. I have had years of experience at both. I am what you call an invisible affiliate... I promote products as the "unseen" middle man. I stay away from mailing lists, tweeting, or anything else that sets me up as an "expert" and have followers... so far so good. gl hf!

As you know I am still learning about internet marketing, I tried to get queenslandfloods.com and australiafloods.com to raise funds for these areas but they were taken, I am in the middle of them.

I am at Moggill, Queensland, we ( my husband Jared and Liam and Jack) were really lucky (blessed) to be on dry land. I have been volunteering at the local church but thought my internet marketing friends and contacts may be able to help more or may be able to guide me to do drive lots of traffic to a site that is for their benefit... even it is for the above sites....

I only want to raise funds for queensland (apparentyl 75% of queensland is affected), who knows it might be the internet marketing community that I am apart of that will help us. I am still learning with internet marketing but certainly know its power.

Hope you can help.
I only got electricity today so please help if you can.

This is terrible... and it seems that these weather related disasters are happening all over. I would suggest that you paste this on your blog here at WA. You will get 100s if not more to see it. As far as the domains you have been trying to get, try inserting some stop words like "the" "my" "info" etc... the search engines ignore them as see the actual keywords in the domain. Google "stop words" for a complete list.
Wish you the best and keep dry.

Learn how to the keyword research first. Go to Clickbank, create an account and pick a product in a field you have some knowledge of. Golf, dog training, fishing, health issues etc. Find a product than has middle of the road to high gravity and look for their affiliates page. A good affiliate program will provide you with a keyword list to work over. They should also have banners, article etc. to help you get started. Find 3 - 5 keyword phrases that have 1000 - 3000 a month average serches in Google and has 50000 or less phrase (in quotes) search results. 5000 or less in- title search results. They will be a bit hard to find but it can be done. If you have one good keyword that meets the above and have to pick some that are not as great only lower your standard on traffic and not competition. Buy a domain with your main keyword phrase in it and build a word press site (here for free) with a page of 300- 500 words of content for each keyword. Write at least one article for each keyword linked to the appropriate page. Once it is indexed by Google then monitize the site with your offer and maybe an adsence block. eBay and Amazon blocks for physical products can also be considered but don't over do it. If the research on the keywords is done right you should place well in the search results and then climb to the first page in 30- 90 days. Rinse and repeat. Sounds hard but only at first, as you get a couple under your belt it will become easier. Give me a pm when you have some keywords that you think will be good an I will tell you what I think.... wish you the best.

Hey Bob,

I just read your "jumpstart for newbies" guide.

Am I right to say that in essence we're buying a domain and directing it with a hoplink straight to the WA sales page? I understand how this may work to get sales,

but I would have thought that with just a domain and no content or websites or SEO, it would be near impossible to get my "way cool domain" even listed on a google search.

I haven't tried doing it yet and hence all I am saying maybe nonsense or speculation... but it would be really cool if you could clarify it for me, cos I'd love to understand the whole thing better before I dabble in it.
Reply
Thanks Bob, that helped answer my questions... :)

klrrider Premium
Your are right and it is good that you are thinking ahead but here is how it works. A forwarded domain still collects backlink juice from all your articles pointed to it. So in essence it still is building pr but there is no page. When you decide to convert it to a site all your backlink juice now goes live and helps your site to rank. As stated in NJS, it is a quick money stop gap method for those just starting out with no web building experience. Every member I have ever signed up at WA was obtained this way using RealWealthyAffiliate.com.

Some day I will convert the domain to Word Press site but for now I am working on other things.

Hi, I just read your step by step newbie article and found the instructions to be incredibly simple to follow. Thank you for writing it, I just have one question - does forwarding my domain make it impossible to access the page i had previously created?
Thanks for the gift to newbies like myself.
Mark
Reply
klrrider Premium
If you forward your domain then your site is bypassed and the visitor is sent directly to the merchant. If you have created a page and it is in rough shape this could be a good idea until you improve on it but your goal should be to send customers to your own domain to collect their address and build a relationship with them.

Newbie Jump Start is a stop gap measure until you can build (or have built) a landing page that converts.

Wish you the best!

I appreciate your very busy and hate to impose.

I am struggling maybe because items have changed on the site maybe since you created the steps?

Anyway hope you get a chance to contact me! I will clarify my query.

Very interesting, Bob. So I take it you've done the Crowd Mountain training? Thanks for the blog comment. There does seem to be a bit of karma of synergy or SOMETHING going on with all of this stuff right now. Funny, I built my first Wordpress site 3 years ago when the college students in the IT classes I was taking told me how great it was. It really was just a blogging platform back then--but I was blown away that such a great system could be put up in a few minutes with a script installer. It's really come of age now, hasn't it?

Join wealthy affiliate has hundred thousand search..gosh..why it is differ from google adword..
Reply
klrrider Premium
"Join Wealthy Affiliate" gets 19 searches per day (roughly 600 mo.) Phrase search About 494,000 results, In Title competition of 1790.

Searches are a bit low but at end of buying cycle which is good.

Competition is stiff... about 4 times higher that what you should go after but you are direct linking so this is not as critical at this point.

In title is well under 10K so your articles would do well with this keyword in the title.

What I would do is use 2 keywords in my article titles like:

Learn Affiliate Marketing - Buy Wealthy Affiliate

The Best Online Marketing Course - Buy Wealthy Affiliate

This will do double duty for your article placements.

Reply
klrrider Premium
I have read them both. They are both do-able. If it was me I prefer the site flipping. The local SEO one is to much like a real JOB for me. The reason Affiliate Marketing is so appealing to me is it could be done from anywhere. You could go on a road trip for a month and keep it tuned up using a laptop.

The site flipping has a bit more freedom. I would do things different though. I would build my own sites and do them right to start with keep them for 6- 12 months then sell. Build one a month and keep an inventory of at least a dozen or more at all times. After you got the hang of it you could build one a week or more. You would have less than 150 in one that was a year old plus any income it made for the year. If it was a barn burner you might decide to keep it.

You pick a market niche, identify the terms being searched in that market that meet your criteria for being profitable. You might enter the "make money online" market and go after the "Newbie" niche but you are not going to use "make money online" or "newbie" as your keywords because either they are to competitive or they are not being used as search terms by the hungry people in the niche. Find keywords being used that you can work on and see first page results without spending months of your time. These will be longer tailed keywords like "learn to make money online fast" or "making online money for beginners." The up front research is the most important to pick the path you are going to approach the market to best give you a toe hold and to advance from there.

A market would be the "diet" market. A niche (smaller but more targeted sub-market) in that market could be "belly fat diet." You would target that smaller but hungry group of people. You would then pick your keywords accordingly. "Burn belly fat", "lose belly fat", etc... Look for keyword phrases of 3 words or more with a search volume of at least 50 or more per day and competition of less than 10K in quotes.

These will be longer tailed keywords like "learn to make money online fast" or "making online money for beginners." The up front research is the most important to pick the path you are going to approach the market to best give you a toe hold and to advance from there.

Hi Pete.

Very interesting for sure......I'm just two weeks new now......WA has great info.... If you get a moment...could you check out my blog and see the newbie notes I have been gathering and putting there so I can go back and also help others.
See if you agree or if I should make changes/edits/corrections etc. Sure would appreciate it. Thanks Phi

Hi Petre, welcome to WA. Enduros have been a love of mine since I was 15. My first was a '73 DT250 Yamaha. Wore it out! "enduro/adventure"... does than mean you ride a KTM? Nice machines. I added you to my buddy list, be sure to do the same so we can keep in touch. Wish you the best.

So hubs work better for you? Any idea why? I agree with you--there will be thousands promoting. If I'm lucky, I'll get a scrap or two before the stampede quite begins. :-)
Reply
maureenhannan Premium
Would you mind giving links for some of your hubs? I'd love to understand more about how your model is working for you. I wouldn't have tried this little campaign--except the research I did turned up keywords without much competition. One Market Samurai lens (I did two yesterday) is using a primary keyword with about 12,000 SEOC, and the other with about 6000. I don't plan to jump into the make money niches either. But they keywords looked do-able and I like the product, so we'll see.

klrrider Premium
I use both and I treat them pretty much the same. I don't backlink much to them but use them to boost my money sites. Google analytics reveals that I get traffic from hubs and almost nothing from lenses. Hubs are more lenient than lenses as far as their tos. I signed up as an affiliate with MS after reading your post just so if I recommend it I can get something out of it. Won't be running any campaigns for it since I steer clear of the make money niches.

Hi klrrider thanks for your comments. Yes that is what I thought, but when I looked at google it said the global searches were google.co.uk (which to me is the uk) and then there were the local searches which to me should have been the UK!
Google says

Well I have to tell you one IDEA.
The most important thing is (logical) keyword and page ranking. For example I have written an article with/about keyword "buy assassin's creed 2". And people are searching for that keyword, but our article has not much rank, so as we know so far the best way to rank page is back link . So we have to find many sites with high rank (which allows us to put our link to the site)
So I have a solution to the problem called "I can't do so much by myself" you are right, you can't do, but we can (together)
Now here's my idea. lets create kind of a group. And let’s do things like searching for sites, searching for software and so on together. Now I'm going to tell you why this is a good idea. 1. For example one man has to find 100 ranking site in one week. He has to try hard I think, but if 20 person are able to find 100 ranking sites, how fast they will do it? :) get the idea? Let’s create a group and then start working together on "any task". When I say on any task I mean it because all of us have absolutely same interest in everything. We are learning same program and our aim is also same so if we will work together I think there is very high chance for us to become a successful. More people more fast tasks, more people more ideas, more people more motivation. I think that we must do this. Hope you like the idea. I'm glad to hear your idea about that (both positive and negative). Let's find out what kind of + and - have this idea.

It is a 1986 KLR 600. The new ones are 650. If I was to buy a newer bike I would recommend the Suzuki DRZ400S.

I ride mostly trails and the 600 or the 650 is a bit heavy but they are great on the open road. The 650 has been manufactured since 1987 and is a real solid design.

When I first started everything was foreign to anything I had ever experienced or dealt with. It took me 4 - 6 months for things to gel mentally. I made quite a few mistakes but still learned things from them so it was good for me. My only advise is to stay away from PPC and climb the learning curve using free methods such as article marketing. Later, when you understand things better then you stand a better chance at PPC. I have belong to half a dozen courses and this is by far the best. A bit overwhelming but everything is here. Concentrate on the stuff from Kyle and Carson first to get your basics down. Any questions... give me a PM, I will be glad to help.

Hi and welcome to WA. buddy invite accepted! KLR 250s are nice, especially on off road trails. My 600 is a bit heavy there. I created a quick start set of tutorials. They are in the misc. section of the training center. "Newbie" series. Also you can't go wrong with PPG's OWM. But if I was you I would start with the updated "Action Plan"... that is what WA is all about. I don't know anything about the 4DMB. It might be allright but in my experience there is no quick money unless you have the money and knowledge to go with PPC right off the bat. It takes about a month to get a good article marketing campaign going and then you need to keep it going. Nice thing is that is cost little money and can be done for free. Keep in touch... l8r Bob

I thought I had seen on your page some formula you had done or something that you had said was a good way to start making money while working on this stuff, but I don't see it anywhere now. it might not have been yours but I can't remember.

I think think your offline idea with the thrifty papers is a great idea. Anything you do in your local area is great since you will have no competition.

Hey Bob! Just added you to my buddy list. I get confused with all the different ways that people commicate here. Anyway, rather than pm you, I'd thought I'd try this. I don't know if you check your 'buddy talk' or if you get notified when you get a new post. And I don't know if I will get notified when or if you post on my WASpace. Anyway, it's all a learning experience, and I'm finding some of the curves are pretty steep.

Quick question: Would you be willing to reveal how you go about doing research to find a promising niche? I've read a bunch of stuff but most of it suggests going to these sites, using those tools, reading that article, browsing forums, etc. I just don't see how one person would have the time to follow ALL of the suggestions provided. I guess what I'm looking for is not a list of ALL the great places to find niche markets, but one (successful) marketers step-by-step procedure for finding their next niche. If this is something I shouldn't be asking, please forgive me. I am just needing some help sifting thru all the information and, rather than picking one or more techniques at random, I was hoping I could at least start with a technique that I know works for someone specific.

If you can help, that would be great. If not, that's cool too!
Reply
klrrider Premium
Hi and welcome to WA. Glad t have you aboard.

I know you are looking for a niche and I think you are coming aboard at the exact right time with the launch of NicheQ.

My marketing has been limited to a couple of clickbank products and the products here at WA. I have just recently been having success and by no means the expert in finding niches to exploit.

I think it is a good idea to start off promoting WA memberships since they are reoccurring commissions. The other WA Products are great also. I haven't decided on what NicheQ I am going to start with yet but the idea of drafting off of Kyle and Carson sounds great to me.

Do your studies here and be sure to surf the forum. It is all here, no need to go anywhere else. Pick your keywords based on search volume (2000 per month ) and competition ( 10,000 or less search results in quotes). Get ready to work.

PM me anytime,
Bob

Hi Joanie,

"URL to Track" is were you put the raw affiliate link you are promoting in my_linker here at Wealthy Affiliate. My-linker is the third from the right tab (gold) at the top of your WA home page. It is a cloaking/tracking tool.

I prefer a laptop to a desk top computer because of mobility. The whole idea of Affiliate marketing is being able to work from anywhere. Unless you have a good local merchant I have had success with Dells.

IF your are using the Newbie Jump Start method be sure to follow the updated version that was republished yesterday. The original is no longer available.

Anyway only thing that I am a bit uncertain of is OK I set up my "real cool domain" with make money etc in the title but how do people find my domain so that I get the clicks registered to me ? Surely my new domain won't rank with the search engines and will not show up if people put in make , money , wealthy etc So how do I get traffic ?
many many thanks Andrewr

Hi Andrew,

I love Jack Russels... had a couple in the past.

Glad to hear you got your way cool domain set up. To get traffic you will have to start promoting using the free methods. I outline the tactics I use in my follow up tutorials, Newbie Traffic School and Newbie Zilla. any questions give me a PM.

haha A chook and a chicken are the same thing. They would taste good but we are keeping them alive to lay eggs.

Bob,
Thanks for offering the great tutorials here at WA. Some of the steps I've done before, but many things are new to me. I have followed your tutorials step-by-step and am now waiting for E-zine Articles to list my first article. I'm having a problem with Rapid Writer though. It will not let me copy/paste the articles or export them to my desktop. I'm receiving an error message every time I try to export the file and unzip it. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for all the help you've been giving to all the newbies. I think you deserve some gold so I gave you some. It's a pleasure to be working with you and the others here at WA!

Thanks Bob. But the problem I have with RW is no matter how I try; control (c) and control (v) or just copying and pasting with the mouse, Rapid Writer doesn't let you do it. The help button doesn't give me any help at all either! And believe me, I've mastered copying and pasting! LOL. Maybe there is something wrong, at least on my end. Is there any way to get around using RW? Thanks for your support!

Thanks for your help Bob, As soon as I started asking there were people there to help me get past these "roadblocks". This place is great! I have also noticed that you prefer the Ezine Articles over Squidoo, any particular reason why? The reason I ask is because the WA tutorials push using "Squidoo" over the others. Should I be starting with one over the other or doesn't it matter? Thanks again, and LOVE those Godzilla tutorials!

Well Bob, you're RIGHT, Squidoo IS confusing. And I really like the Ezine Article site for EZ use. I really enjoy your step-by-step tutorials. I prefer videos generally but your written instruction is basic enough, in my opinion, for ANYONE. Thanks for the valuable info. and I'll let you know how things are going along. Appreciate the jump start!

Hi Jeff... I use RW quite a bit but never could get the export tool to work.. I jest copy and paste into a document or article body field. Keep in touch and hope things go well for you.

Hi againg Jeff... I don't know what to say, if you can't copy and paste in RW than the program is pretty much useless. Even if you highlight the text it still dosen't work? You might need to PM Marcus. He trouble shoots for WA and he is good.

Hi Jeff, I have used both ezine and squidoo but I don't consider them the same venues. ezine is an article site and all you can do is and article with one link. Squidoo is closer to a website and you have more control over it. And ultimately the most control is your own domain/website. Article marketing involves article submission sites and it takes quality submissions to get approval. My tutorials are about article marketing and I just felt squidoo would confuse the reader. I don't prefer one or the other. I have had my best luck with iSnare and Hubpages but that is just me.

I have donated some gold to you for creating the Newbie Trilogy Box Set. It answered about 4 questions I had at one time. Thanks for creating such a thing.

Hey bud: Wanted to say hi and thank you for creating the Newbie Trilogy. It's my second day here and I was hoping to find something to jump start me. I'm going to implement your techniques over the next couple days to get ball rollin. Then I'm going to concentrate on writing articles (already finished studying the course on it and making notes) to pick up the pace. After that I don't know yet I think I'm off to a good start. I think! Sure am glad I finally found WA. :o)

Just dropped by to say hello and thank you for the tutorial in the share zone. I have been meaning to look into how to mask a link. Although I'm not exactly a newbie I am still struggling, so thanks again and good luck with everything.

Just wanted to thank for the great tuttorial in the share zone.
I used to have a harley sportster years ago. My hobbie now is sailing, 28ft boat which I sail in Narragansett bay in RI.
I did have one question when you have time concering your tutorial. How do you upload the article from rapid writer into ezinearticle, or do you have to retype everything.
thanks again.

Hi Jerry and thanks for the comment on my tutorial.

In order to get my article from rapid writer to ezinearticles I just copy and paste. (ctrl A highlights all text, ctrl C to copy then ctrl V to paste) always check afterwords for errors. Sometimes quotation marks screw up.

Later.
Bob
