I guess this is where I tell everyone what I like to do...maybe even give some insight into the life of "Kyle". I enjoy travelling the world when I can and fortunately owning an internet business is very accommodating to travel (but it also means that I am always connected lol).

I also like to exercise, play sports (mostly basketball), and of course, Internet Business!

I also like to read in my spare time. Knowledge is a powerful thing. If you educate yourself in things that you are passionate about and that you can "apply" towards your journey to success, you can achieve big things!

I began marketing in college, where I began my journey onto the Internet. I took computer science in school, primarily focusing on programming, but quickly found a love for the business & marketing components of the web. Business has always been an interest of mine. I remember reading jargon-filled business magazines while I was still in high school.

Since the inception of Wealthy Affiliate in Sept, 2005, I have a new found passion -- helping others succeed online. This is not an easiest of tasks, and everyone coming to WA comes from a different background, with a different story, but my (and Carson's) goal is to continue to work towards creating a system that will induce widespread success among the WA community members.

Give me a shout out in the forum and if you want, add me to your buddy list, or send me a message below!

Take Care,

Kyle

PS. I truly look forward to working with you!!

Hello Kyle,

I just got done with Course 2, Lesson 6 and have a question about WordPress. I am basically setting up my blog as a brand and was wondering is there a way to add a stationary image to my blog roll below the wording? In other words is there a way to add a stationary water mark to my blog roll?

Thank You

Hi Kyle. I put a questions that has been concerning me, it is about that every time when I write the name of my domain, on posts, pages, etc... it usually shows highlighted and with a link that if someone clicks on it , it'll take to my website home page. So, since a few months ago, that hasn't been happening anymore. I have to manually put a link on. Do you know what is going on with that?

Hi Kyle :)
I have a problem finding my niche and I clicked the link you provided but it says resource not found

''If you are REALLY STUCK at this point and you cannot decide on a niche, perhaps you may be interested in the make money/affiliate marketing niche. If you don't have a niche at this point, this will be your niche and we have an Affiliate Bootcamp dedicated to those that are interested in promoting Wealthy Affiliate. Go here if that is you.''

I click in the link ''Go here if that is you''
and this is the message I get

''Not Found''
''The resource that you are looking for is not available. It may have been removed, please use the search to find what you are loooking for.''

Hi Kyle You might have noticed that I have not been very active on my website. I have lost focus and have been experiencing major blocks whenever I'm supposed to write anything on my website. On top of that i have been having serious financial difficulties and was wondering if I could temporarily discontinue payments for the time being and then resume at a later date. To be truthful, I've been exploring countless other "easier" options but everything points right back to having my own website, so at least I know that I must continue on this project despite the difficulties. I'm kindly asking if you could bear with me until I have these problems sorted out. Thanks.

Easier options? IF you are looking for the "short cut" it is a matter of working hard. Those that are telling you that success is EASY out there, are those likely trying to sell you into their scheme or program. We teach what works, and the proper process to building a long term and successful business online.

In order to achieve success, it does take hard work and dedication. ;)

Hi Kyle, Just a quick question about my site appearance. I think I've followed the set up steps but when I view my site it looks nothing like yours in the training video. I'm at the stage where I've posted the About Me pg and the Privacy Policy but when I view my site It has my Niche name at the top as expected but then says "uncategorized" above the About me and only a partial bit of the content I wrote appears, I have to click on Posts to view it as yours does . Also where as yours has a Home page and alongside it a Privacy Policy page, mine has nothing? The site theme I'm using is Skin. Have I missed something? Thanks for your advice, I'll go back over the steps in the meantime

Themes will not always look the same when you preview them (before you install them) versus when you actually start using them as there are features, images, etc. that can change the look of your website.

Not to worry at all here though, that is quite normal and as you build out your website, the design and look will evolve as you create content.

RE: creating custom menus

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

Hi Kyle,

I am working thru the beginning stages and i am not exactly sure where to ask my questions. There seems to be more than one area to have conversations, am I correct?

I left question in the pick you niche area and had no response or I may not be looking in the right spot to find it.

My idea is for thrifty fixes anyone can do tho their home, i am an avid, self taught home improvement addict and want to go that direction.
Any suggestions would be fantastic!

Thank you,

I think this could be a unique approach to niche. DIY Fixes for your Home.

Something of that nature and you could provide people with lists of things that they can fix on a room by room basis.

Your website will naturally evolve as you build out your content.

Kyle, I have a question regarding keywords. I got contradictory answers from the community. In the first tutorial about keywords you said to have a different keyword on each page but does that mean that each page can only have 1 keyword? The keyword should be in the title and the body so, for example, you could have a page with 3 keywords in the title and the body or split the page into 3 pages with 1 keyword on each page in the title and the body. Is there a difference in the ranking? Thanks
Reply
Kyle Premium
Target keywords within every page or post.

Each page or post on your website should have a keyword focal point. Keywords are what lead to rankings and what lead to traffic. So when you are looking to come up with an idea for a new post, do some keyword research and find a phrase that is related to your niche.

As you build out your content and start getting rankings under these terms, you will see your traffic (and revenue) cumulatively grow. Just know that not every page will rank, but over time a good percentage will. The game of numbers!

I think what people are referring to is when you extend a keyword.

ex. make money online selling affiliate products

Also targets:

make money
make money online
make money online selling
make money online selling affiliate

Does that make sense Peter?

Hi Kyle!

I have based a huge part of my site around being an Amazon Associate mainly because it's so easy when you're a beginner. In the last month, I have only had 58 sessions and 41 new users.

I've had a few of my clients (we own a hair salon) tell me that they have ordered things I recommend on my site. They are not showing up on my Associate account so I wrote to support. They told me that they "have ways" of knowing who knows you. That's scary!

Since I have finished all the coursework, I have been trying to learn Pinterest and reading everything I can about how to get more traffic and I feel a bit lost at this point. Can you give me a bit of direction? My site is a "lifestyle blog that has everything to do with...FeelYourAbsoluteBest.com

Does my niche seem too broad?

I wish WA had advanced training...

Thanks,
Diane
Reply
Kyle Premium
If they have ordered thing through your affiliate link, you should've gotten credit for the sales. Do know know that Amazon only has 24 hour cookies, meaning that if they go through your affiliate link they have to purchase within 24 hours or you do not get credit for the sale.

Most affiliate programs are 30 days or longer and this is been a frustrating point with a lot of people with the Amazon Associates program.

I do think your niche is a little bit too broad, Your domain name is fine I think you need to narrow it down through a more targeted slogan. You could start with hair as that sounds like something you are passionate about and then diversify from there.

And is a premium member you certainly have access to advanced training and as you move through the training it is going to get more more advanced.
Reply
dionibas Premium
I do know about the Amazon 24 hour cookie rule. They would not give me credit because, "To answer your question, you will not receive credit for any purchase flagged as a personal order in our system. Personal orders, which in our definition refers to orders made by you, a friend, family member, or client, or anyone you know personally, do not bring with them eligibility to receive referral fees.

The reason behind this is that the Amazon.com Associates Program is an advertising program rather than a discount program. Our goal is to have our associates refer new customers to us in return for advertising fees. Associates are not eligible for advertising fees when they place orders themselves, or ask people they know to routinely place orders through their links so they can earn advertising fees. Due to the proprietary nature of the way we make these determinations, we can't share the full list of criteria by which we detect these ineligible orders."

Can you tell me how to increase my traffic?

Also, where is the advanced training? How do I find it?

Thanks again Kyle!
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can increase your traffic by getting rankings in search engines. This will happen as you create content that targets new keywords with every post you create.

How often are you creating content? Have you completed the entire get started here course (all 50 lessons).

Are you taking part in the weekly live classes?

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/webinar

There're hundreds of hours of advanced training there. :)

I have completed the entire 50 lessons. It was great! I've felt a bit lost after it was over. I find myself going off on rabbit trails. I will go to the link you gave me. I had been creating about 2 articles a week. Recently slowed a bit as I'm spending time learning about Pinterest and YouTube.
Reply
Kyle Premium
What criteria are you following for your keywords?

Keywords are the premise of all of your content. Ideally you will be finding keywords with a lower competition (also known as QSR) because it means that you are going to be competition with less websites in Google when you go to create your content.

You want your keyword to meet the following criteria:

(1) Must be lower than 200 QSR initially, as you get more authority in search engines you can tackle more competitive search terms.
(2) Must get some traffic, I ideally aim for over 50 searches per month
(3) Must make grammatical sense

I recently created training on how to come up with great keywords here and this is a strategy I have always used to build out my website Diane ... Once you have your keyword, you are going to create a page or a post on your website targeting that keyword. It should be within the following places in your content:

(1) Somewhere in the page/post title
(2) Somewhere within the first paragraph

And then write your content naturally and make sure it is engaging. People search "keywords" when they are looking for something so as you start getting ranked under these keywords, you are going to start to see traffic.

Once you have traffic...you have a ton of opportunity to generate revenue.

Hope this helps you out Diane!

One more quick question. I don't have any ads as I thought it made my site look a bit junky. What are your thoughts?

Hello Kyle, I'm glad I came across your site in the nick of time. I was thinking of plunking down $300 for a service that claimed it would do everything for me. Then I read where you said you were scammed by someone making the above similar claims. As far as I am concerned youve already helped me make money- as I'm keeping my $300 in my pocket.

I can appreciate that Chrisea, most companies out there are in the business of making money at any cost unfortunately (in particular in this space). Not a day goes by where I am not working with someone that is jaded by the entire industry because of past experiences.

There is no payment connected to this account. You will need to upgrade to premium if you want a premium account and you can do so at any time.

Nothing to worry about, I can see the payment went through on September 09, 2017.

The cycle is actually controlled by our payment processor (PayPal) and it's every 30 or 31 days depending on the month. It is based on making 12 payments per year, and since there are 365 days in a year (and not 360) the payment dates may shift around by a day on some months as there are months that obviously have a different number of days within them.

I look forward to seeing you inside WA!

Hey Sandy,
Hey Kyle,
What happens to the premium wp theme in case someone downgrades for a couple of month from the premium service? Is it still online and can still be edited normal or does the theme change to one of the 12 free themes?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Unfortunately, you cannot downgrade to Starter, however you will be able to resubscribe to your Premium account at any time and reconnect your membership (when you can make it back). ;)

We also host your website for 30 days beyond the cut off date, which gives you time to still work on it or move it to another host in the meantime.

Hope this clarifies for you Sandra!

Hello, Kyle...just a note to advise you that we in the Turks and Caicos islands are again expecting a direct hit from hurricane Maria on Friday evening. This will hinder WiFi communications from me as most certainly power will be shut down until it's restored at a later date.

I know you are a busy man and won't take much of your time but I want to personally express my appreciation for the remarkable program and community you guys have set up.
I have been around the web and in real life cranking out meager ways of making a living. I have always avoided anything that sounded like a get rich quick scheme(nothing comes fast and easy) and became very skeptical when it came to any online business. But then my real life business partner found you and then turned me onto your free trial.
I have to say, it didn't take long at all for me to realize Wealthy Affiliate wasn't like anything I have come across before. I do not have much experience in the ways of building a website and online business but that is quickly becoming a different story. With the excellent teaching methods and spot on support team, this program is going to be the biggest reason for my future success.
I look forward to many successful years with you and the rest of this community at Wealthy Affiliates. THANK YOU!

Hello Kyle...

I actively began my endeavors with Level 1 Lesson 1 for my Certification Training last Tuesday September the 12th of 2017 and finished Lesson 10 last evening, September the 18th. I also did some lessons in Boot Camp, stemming from Lesson 1 of Level 1 about 3 days prior to starting Level 1, and also finished up to Lesson 5 in Boot Camp today, the 19th.

You left me a message within in those first 3 days suggesting I do the Certification Training. Now, since I have completed the first ten lessons of Level 1, I have my own website and I have purchased my first domain.

My niche is recruiting people into Wealthy Affiliate. My website title is Retired People Jobs Unlimited. I have developed a full blog of 1,046 words and I am ready to install my blog with eight promising key words, including the title, along with my experience, education, and natural brand in business, accounting, and economics.

My question is how do I finalize the point of interest of the people reading my blog to bring them into Wealthy Affiliate? Do I install a custom Wealthy Affiliate plug-in similar to one I found Amazon has on WordPress to refer them to Wealthy Affiliate with their free to join option and I would get paid accordingly? or What would be the name of the plug-in I would use?

I do so want to compliment you on the awesome job you are doing with your online classes!

I will be sitting there listening to you, and all the while you are seemingly chatting with me, with the way you walk me through from the beginning of one class to the end, to the next class, you have my wheels turning from where we are to what I know I can apply, and it all falls into place. Having your classes on line, also makes for good continuity. I am able to visualize and actually produce what I know is feasible to achieve.

You will be creating a review of WA on your website, which is where you will promote WA.

It means you are ranked under those terms when you type in the search terms. This could be because you visited your site before, and Google recognizes this.

If you want to test your site rankings in Google and other search engines, I recommend that you check it out site rank over at Jaaxy.com. This tool will allow you to check rankings and track your rankings over a period of time.

Kyle, I live in the U.S. and my free membership ends in 1 day. I have been trying to upgrade to the premium membership but my debit card won't work because my bank won't allow foreign transactions. I tried PayPal too but since my debit card from this bank is linked to my PayPal account, it won't work either. Do you accept any other type of payment? I don't have any other cards and I don't want to miss out on this awesome opportunity.

If you want to upgrade to Premium, you can either do so through Paypal (which accepts many different types of payment) or you can do so through credit card. Unfortunately those are our only methods of payment at this point. Hope this clarifies for you Angela!

PS. If your bank doesn't accept foreign transactions, there is nothing we can do other than have you try to contact your bank to allow this. This is the online world, for a bank not to accept this is strange.

This doesn't really do much anymore ever since Google got rid of Google Authorship.

Hi Kyle just got a quick question about writing content on my website. I'm creating a pet care website and my first article was called "How To Take Care Of A Cat - Getting Started" my next article is going to be about what things to buy before bring your pet home for example food and accessories. I wanted to know can I title my next article "How To Take Care Of A Cat - Cat Equipment" or is that using the keywords too much in the titles as I know you said google doesn't like you using the key word too much or that just in each article not the title. The Keywords were "Take Care Of A Cat".

Thanks

Sounds like you are heading in the right direction here.

Keywords are the premise of all of your content. Ideally you will be finding keywords with a lower competition (also known as QSR) because it means that you are going to be competition with less websites in Google when you go to create your content.

You want your keyword to meet the following criteria:

(1) Must be lower than 200 QSR initially, as you get more authority in search engines you can tackle more competitive search terms.
(2) Must get some traffic, I ideally aim for over 50 searches per month
(3) Must make grammatical sense

I recently created training on how to come up with great keywords here and this is a strategy I have always used to build out my website Matthew ... Once you have your keyword, you are going to create a page or a post on your website targeting that keyword. It should be within the following places in your content:

(1) Somewhere in the page/post title
(2) Somewhere within the first paragraph

And then write your content naturally and make sure it is engaging. People search "keywords" when they are looking for something so as you start getting ranked under these keywords, you are going to start to see traffic.

Once you have traffic...you have a ton of opportunity to generate revenue.

Hope this helps you out Matthew!

So would you say I can use the same key word but with a different sub heading for the title of my next article for example.
My first article ia called "how to take care of a cat - getting started" as I know that how to take care of a cat was a good keyword with 664 traffic but just 99 QSR. A
My second article I was going to call "how to take care of a cat - cat equipment" or would you say to maybe just use "cat equipment" or change the title of the article completely"

Thanks

I would never recommend using the same keyword twice within two different articles. Once you target specific keyword with an article, move onto the next keyword.

So I definitely don't recommend what you're planning on doing.

Hi Kyle or G,day if you like, how are you? Just a couple of questions the first is how is the premium membership billed?
As i enjoy outdoor activities such as travel, camping, fishing, photography and the like, what are your thoughts on how to make these activities profitable? My wife and I receive overseas visitors (mainly relatives and friends) on a regular basis and the are amazed at some of the locations and activities that we show them.
Do you think there is some merit in promoting travel here (Australia) or is it too ambitious a task considering that tourism is pretty well covered in Australia.

Thanks

It is $19 the first month, then it is $49 per month after the first month. This includes absolutely everything you need to create and grow a business online from the training, weekly live classes, he support, the tools, the websites/hosting, the mentoring, network, exclusive access to all updates...you name it.

We also have a yearly option of $359 which is a big discount and that works out to be $29 per month. You can choose either or.

RE: your niche...

I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "outdoors" do you want to help people out with? You have some great ideas there, you can narrow it down to just one.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Kyle,
I have picked my niche and built my web set and moving forward with Lesson 7, but I am a little anxious. I have picked my niche BEFORE using Google Keyword to even know if / how many people and where are searching.

I feel worried that while I am following the outlined steps, I have done this backwards. :-(

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Leslie. :)

Hey Kyle,
I need a little guidance with my keyword rich post. My niche is "custom car wheels" so i chose " "Custom wheels online" for my keyword. It has a QSR of 43 and 104 searches. My post title is "Custom wheels online - What you need to know" my headings are: "Wheel bolt patterns", "Wheel offset", "Wheel diameter" and "Wheel width". Now i can discuss the importance of each, but i want to give my audience either a link to a database to look up these dimensions for their car/truck, or create one for my site. I don't know how to create one without a ton of work, so should i become an affiliate for a website that has that feature?
Any help would be great.

You never need to worry about keywords in your actual domain name or niche choice. They will be a focus as you go your content and each page or post you create on your website will be targeting a specific keyword.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

Uhhhh. I wasn't really asking about my keywords matching my domain. Basically what i was asking is:
"I want to give my audience either a link to a database to look up wheel dimensions for their car/truck, or create one for my site. I don't know how to create one without a ton of work, so should i become an affiliate for a website that has that feature?"
Does that make sense? I tried to PM you but it wouldn't let me.

I would definitely become an affiliate for a program that offers something of this nature. I wouldn't try to create a part database at the outset of your website.

My suggestion is to keep it simple in particular when starting out. First get to a point of success where you are ready to diversify and you have enough traffic to diversify.

Far too often I see folks wanted to build out their idea first and then focus on getting the business to it, when in actuality the opposite approach leads to success. Focus on building your foundation, your brand, and creating an audience before you focus on getting too complex. It will lead to much more success this way Raymond.

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into a keyword tool like the one here at WA or Jaaxy.com. Hope this helps you out here Raymond!

Question: How do I remove categories from my website? I have not had a lesson on categories but was told to add categories so that I can publish content to site. When I went into categories I find that there is a list of categories from another website that I have but I can't remove them. I do not understand how this bleed over from one website to another has happened. I have even changed my password on the other site. Rather than be at a complete standstill I am going to continue to write content and put it in the bucket until I have info that allows me to publish it.

these widgets are probably there by default, and you can manage these through the widgets section by adding another widget.

Hey Kyle,

I'll be very straight-forward. I am somewhat disabled and do not want to get back out in the corporate world. I know there are absolutely no guarantees, but I'd like to know how quickly I could make any real money. I plan to work all day at least M-F. I will also upgrade to premium for sure.

I'm asking because my husband is pessimistic and sometimes difficult. If it will take me several months, I'll have to get a job and I would still do WA in my spare time.

I'm willing to do the work and already have some understanding about getting traffic to your web page. I have medical issues that cause me pain and it's so much easier to work from home and take a break when I need it.

I'm sure you get questions like this all the time, and again, I know there are no promises or guarantees... I'm just thinking should I be using my time right now searching for a great job, or continue on with WA.

Thanks for any help or advice you can give.

So wonderful to have you here at WA Kimberly! If you can work hard and take action on the training here at WA, this is absolutely going to translate into a successful business for you.

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!

Sure, no problem at. I have taken a look at your website and here's my feedback. :)

(1) All websites are under construction, a website is never done. It is bad practice to put a site under construction, rather you should be considering just publishing your content as you create it. Within a month or so it will really start to take shape and you will have a decent deal of content on your site.

You want Google to find your site as soon as possible, so avoid the idea of under construction. That is definitely not how you want to go about building out your site.

(2) At this point I would recommend you build out your initial framework before you move forward. You don't want to leave placeholder content sitting around for too long and I recommend that you only publish pages/posts as they content is ready to go (versus under construction pages).

Overall, nice work thus far and I like the theme that you have chosen. :)

Kyle and Carson many people are uneasy about training such as this because there has been so much dishonesty with scams that have cost them many dollars in loss. Yes, I'm such a person too.
Thus I shall be evaluating everything as I proceed through the training and so want to see the results. very positive results to allow helping people. Young people get their educations in ways that are very possible. You have the same desire with this training since the results are the same as the motive.
Where you like to read, have you ever read through the Holy Bible? I would say an Amplified version. Also, you might like to read "The Harbinger" and "The Mystery of the SHEMITAH" by Jonathan Cahn. I mention this because of your desire for your family and all the people of WA needing a ROCK SOLID FOUNDATION for their business and life.
I see the great need already in WA being new at Premium in joining all of your team. Maybe, just maybe some of my training and experience will help other people here as time shall reveal to us. I know that I shall need their help since I'm a baby at computers and the internet.

Hi Kyle,

Course 3, Lesson 8 has been a tough learning experience about google AdSense, and I may have learned not to use it on my current site. I do need your advice.

I'm building a high-level authority site, and it is going pretty well, I think. I fear that the credibility and trust I'm building will be damaged by inappropriate ads. My very new and shallow experience has been mixed.

While some ads are distracting, misleading or directly competitive, most are appropriate and could add to the visitor value experience. Some are grossly inappropriate, however, and would do serious damage to site credibility. I fear that is the risk and the bargain with AdWords, and there may be little I can do but turn off the ads. Are there ad quality adjustments with google, or other advert services with better quality screening? Please look over my inquiry below and offer your input.

Thanks for your help.
Steve

------ From lesson comments last nite---
I've gotten a porno ad placed by google, and I'm not sure what I can do about it (if anything).
For my niche, porno ads will shoot down the credibility of the authority site I'm building.
When I nixed the ad, google took it out, but didn't replace it with anything.
Any suggestions as to how and if this google porno ad problem can be avoided?

You should not worry about Adsense at all, you don't need it for your business and sometimes the Adsense approval team are very sporadic and inconsistent with their decision making.

I would always recommend monetizing your website with affiliate programs versus using Adsense, you are truly going to get full value of your visitors this way instead of earning pennies on the dollar with Adsense.

Just something to consider as you're building out your website.

You are in full control of your membership here at WA Kurt. You can go month to month or yearly, we don't believe in contracts and we are totally transparent about the cancellation process if you ever need to cancel (I can even help you out).

If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche", go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

Hope this helps you out here Kurt!

That is a big undertaking, but is something that we have considered. We would probably need to hire another 20 to 30 employees to do it properly and of course there would be fees.

Is not an immediate future, but It is certainly something we will consider down the road.

Hey, Kyle! Just a couple of quick questions.

I'm currently on lesson 4, just having finished watching the video about building my first site, and I'm a bit confused. At one point in the video, you said that starters can purchase their own domain for their sites, but you used a subdomain for the example.

So, if starters can purchase their own domain and set that up, is there a separate video tutorial for doing that, or would you recommend using the subdomain first, and then purchasing a domain later, and using the "move" function in the "manage site" area?

I read somewhere that using one's own domain looks more professional. Also, wouldn't having a subdomain affect site ranking more negatively? Maybe I'm jumping ahead here, but I'm asking these questions because I've done previous research for writing articles in my freelance work, and so your video sort of confused me a bit.

All this said, using the subdomain might work for me better for the next month or so, as my dad's been in the hospital, and therefore I took some time off my work to deal with that--ergo my finances are tight. :P

Any advice and information would be very welcome.

Thanks,
Kat ^.^

If you want a domain of your own, you can purchase it through here at WA yes. Domains are things that you actually OWN just like real estate and if you want your own .com domain, you will need to purchase it. By all means get rolling on the free .siterubix.com websites though A, you can always transfer over to your own domain name down the road using the Move feature included within the Premium membership.

When you are ready to purchase a domain, you can do so through the following page:

Also, It's hard for me to sign up as an affiliate for other things to add to my pages because, they want to see your sight to get approved to be an affiliate.
Your thoughts?

Morning Kyle. I hope you are well.

I had a scare this morning. My computer browser reset itself and I lost all saved passwords and could not get back on WA site. Could you please change my email address as I typed it in wrongly? I know about going back into my profile to edit things but for the email there is no option to edit. I am afraid of losing the work done so far and I want to upgrade. Luckily for me today I remembered to do a system restore to get passwords back. If I had failed the forgot password link would be of no use because email address is not correct so I cannot retrieve email. I just want the google to be changed to gmail. I would appreciate if you could change this for me before I upgrade.

Kyle, I'm new but I noticed a typo in the training video material and figure you want to fix it. Things like this just jump out at me. In your first video, Lesson 2, there is a statement about creating a thriving business. Thriving is spelled "thriving", without the first I.
Just an fyi. thanks, Kim

Thanks for letting me know Kimberly I will get this fixed!

What does it mean when it says that my ability to ask ?s ends in 7 days. Does that mean I'm on my own after that unless I upgrade. I can't afford to upgrade until I make enough to pay this month & next months expenses with a little left over to upgrade

Do know that this is not a "trial" as your Starter membership does not end. Your Premium communication is for the first 7 days, but beyond that you will still have access to the community, your websites, and training.

Upgrade at your own pace and what works best for your situation. I know you are going to love the training and community here at WA and of course, feel free to ask for help if you ever need anything Victoria!

I did write a personal blog on WA about my wonderful experience so far as a new Premium member.
Thanks again!

Off to a good start here. A few things I can offer feedback on.

(1) It is always best to have a white background with black text. This has been proven over and over again to lead to the highest readability and subsequently the highest rate of conversions on a website. I find that your plaid back ground is really distracting to the end user and I think this is going to take away form your readability.

(2) Focus on getting more comments and engagement going within your posts.

We have a SiteComments platform here at WA where you can get comments on your pages/posts. Within the SiteRubix menu under SiteComments you will be able to gain access to this platform. Here is the direct link:

This is great for getting engagement on your website (which leads to rankings) and this is what I suggest you do with every new post you build on your website.

You are doing great thus far though!

Dear Mr Kyle with regards to my ranking I was at 2000 plus and now I have been reverted to rank 50305. I understand that the WA site was under some updation and I waited for 10 days to pose the query with you, hoping that things will be regularised. Kindly advise.

An Ambassador represents our most active, helpful and engaged members here at Wealthy Affiliate. Anyone can become an ambassador and move up within the internal ranks here by immersing themselves within the community, asking for help, and helping others when they can.

You can learn more about the Ambassadorship program in detail here. We recently made some changes and if you have not been all that active lately, this could be why. Ultimately you want to focus on your business, that is your first focus. Naturally being involve here within WA, the training, the discussions, etc....will lead to improvement in your WA rank and your relationships that you will build here within the community.

I hope this clarifies things for you. :)

Dear Kyle, I agree I have not been active in the last 6/8 months, but I would like to bring to your attention 8 months ago I was ranked 400 plus and till 15 days ago I was being demoted to the rank of 2000 plus due to my inactivity.
Having brought this matter to your attention from 50305 of yesterday my ranking has been upgraded to 31989 as of today but still, this does not make sense to me. I do intend to become active
but it's a bit discouraging to climb back from 31989 to 2000.
Kindly look into this irregularity and advice.

Hi Kyle as you stated in your comment the hardest thing most people find at first is choosing their niche and funny enough that is a problem I am having trying to make it specific instead of it being to broad that is the challenge I'm facing. I was wondering as me and my fiancée lost our cat this year and he was very close to our hearts and still is and as I am a big animal lover would 'the grief of loosing a cat' be a good starter niche for me as I have experienced it first hand or would you recommend making it more specific.

Look forward to hearing your reply.

Hey Kyle

I'm starting to set up my first website and my privacy policy is on my home page and I want users to see about me (or anything else but my privacy page first thing when they enter my web page.)

I reached out in live chat and got helpful insight but on my laptop it's still showing up. On mobile it doesn't and people in live chat said they don't see it.

I deleted the privacy policy 24 hrs ago in hopes it'd be removed but it's still up.

Any idea why that is and how I can get rid of it?

Thanks!

Mo

Can you link me to your website and I can have a look.

You can manage your menus through custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

I don't see your privacy policy anywhere on your site? Did you figure out how to remove it?
