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!!

Hi Kyle,
I have be going through both the regular program and the Affiliate Bootcamp, the question I have is this: Is there any reason I can't combine both, I have a niche that I am planning out where I can use the Amazon and other affiliate programs, but also have a blog within my niche that would highlight Wealth Affiliate. While I have been going through the program I have felt that it is one or the other. I am ready to start my website and have done some keyword research (still learning this). If I can't incorporate both types of programs within my niche I would have to re-think how I work my webpage. Thanks

I’m having trouble getting through the courses through mobile. Is this limited time or can I come back to it on a laptop. This seems to be legit which is great because I’ve been searching for a legit work from home opportunity so that I am able to work and spend the most time with my kids so I don’t want to miss out on a great opportunity

You can use your phone, it definitely isn't ideal, but you can consume the training here. Building your business will be very difficult from a phone though and if you have a local library you might want to consider taking advantage of that for the actual "building out" of your website.

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 Nicollette!

I just happened to see your post, and thought I'd try to help if possible... I would try to pm Kyle, and see if you can get in touch with him by that route. Being something personal to you and with your feeling of urgency I'd say try that route for best results. I hope everything works out in your favor, and truly if you need anything at all that I may be able to help you with, don't hesitate in the slightest to let me know❣

Hi Kyle, it is with utmost sorrow that I am writing this post to you.

I know that there had been trouble over the Christmas period, which was resolved with a change of browser, I thank you for that suggestion.

My problems are now are much deeper, in as much that I can no longer afford the monthly payments, from my pension.

I do not want the embarrassment of my bank having to decline your payment, this is a real situation that I, at this time cannot afford.

Would I be able to reduce to a "free member", that is, until my situation improves? Also if this was granted, would I be able to access my sites and be able to work on them in the background.

Or, will I lose all access to that which I have, namely my sites, several of which I was in the process transferring to WA. from my previous hosting company.

I am asking you to explain to me, what would be available to me, under my present circumstance.

Would I lose everything, which is more to the point?

I enjoy being with WA. though I have not been a regular participant in the past few months, this, due to the stress of my situation.

This has led me to write to you, this is a very uncomfortable position for me, I can only hope that you will review my situation, and give me some guidance.

Hello again Kyle.

I have another suggestion for you.
It was recently pointed out to me that I broke one of the blogging rules here at AW, I must confess that I didn't read the rules at the start. I think it would be a good idea to include a task with reference to them in the main training?

Thanks for your time
David.

Well we put a rating of the actual blog editor, so it is people that are blogging that get the message versus those that are not ever going to blog.

I think that we could pointed out and make it a requirement before you make your first blog posts though. That would be a good approach I think. Thank you for your suggestions here David. :)

Hi Kyle. I just finished Affiliate Bootcamp nine, I believe. The one that after you finish, you take a ten day break. I checked the completed tasks, and I tried to go to the next training, but I'm not sure if I'm on the right phase and lesson now. It says I;m on Phase 3, Lesson 1, but it looks like I've done some of that stuff before. Would you confirm that I'm on the correct phase and lesson? I may have messed up when I tried to jump to a section and skip the 10 day break.

Thanks you,
Ulysses

You will want to be on phase 2, if you have not completed that yet. If you have already completed phase 2, you will be on phase 3. If you click the affiliate boot camp menu, you will see all the phases laid out and your progress within each of them there.

I got a problem. As a Starter Member waiting for money to upgrade, I am unable to access Site Support. Both my websites are created, but both have failed to upgrade the SEO Pack and the one I can't delete the dummy items. And I can't login fully to update and start with my websites so I can make money. :-(

Hey Kyle I have a confusing question. Suppose the keyword "what're the best phone covers" has 4000avg with 0 QSR, and "best phone covers" also has 4000avg at 160 QSR.

How would I rank using "what're the best phone covers" Do those extra two words put me at the top page, or do I get buried under other sites?
Reply
Kyle Premium
what are the best phone covers

I would search that keyword on your last search, as that is what you are going to be competing with
Reply
Tibbors Premium
Aw 80avg, not the goldmine I thought it was, but still good. If google doesn't auto-correct it, does that mean it's usable? Because "what's the best phone covers" is accepted, but again at the same exact 4000avg as best phone covers so maybe it's a 'replica'. Btw phone covers is code for something else, heh.

Hi Kyle!

I have a suggestion for wealthy affiliate.

I was wondering if Wealthy Affiliate would consider the implementation of emojis so that we could use them on wealthy affiliate blog posts and comments etc.

I think that it would help to put across more emotion and spread some of that lovely positive energy :D

Thanks for your time

Hey Kyle,

I wanted to pick your brain about something I've been thinking about a lot lately. I really like your site and I'm fairly sure I'll become a premium member, but I'm also contemplating working with SFM(six figure mentors) and am checking out their 30 day trial right now.

I was just wondering if you have any thoughts about that company? I'm definitely willing to invest in my education, but their memberships seem exorbitantly high in price and I'm honestly not sure how much more I would be learning there that I can't learn with WA. My biggest goal is to replace my current 9-5 as quickly as possible, but I'm not naive to think it's going to happen overnight. Any insights you have, would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I have never heard of it, but what I can tell you is that you have everything you need here. We are the most comprehensive, advanced, helpful and cost efficient platform in the industry (by a country mile). I think you are quickly going to come to appreciate this as you immerse yourself in the platform here.

There are companies charging $50,000 - $100,000 that offer less than we do in our free membership, let alone the Premium membership. Just some perspective there.

How many plugins do you have on your website? Every plugin that you add to your website will incrementally slow it down. So just be careful not to add too many.

Also, you may want to consider turning on SiteSpeed for your website. You can do this within the SiteManager under Details, turn on the SiteSpeed toggle there and that will also speed up your site.

Hi Kyle. I know my niche will have something to do with music, movies or books. Beyond that.....I'm not sure. I'll have it narrowed it down by the time I continue the training tomorrow. Of course, any advice or direction you could give me in the meantime would be greatly appreciated.

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

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. :)

I have an issue viewing my new domain.
So I moved my siterubix domain to my new domain that I just purchased. When I try to log into my new domain from my Site Manager a screen pop ups that says "This connection is not private. This website may be impersonating your website to steal your personal or financial information. You should go back to the previous page"

Does this happen normally to new domains? How do I fix this?

You just want to turn on SiteSSL. This will encrypt your site.

To turn on SiteSSL and make your website https:// (encrypted), head over the the SiteRubix => SiteManager page. Here is the direct link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

Within that page you will be see the SitePlus link, click that. (see attached) Then you will want to "toggle" the SiteSSL feature to "ON" status and SSL will be added to your website within 30 seconds. It is that easy!

Hi Kyle, this is more of a comment than a question. The Super Affiliate training is valuable in several ways, one of them is that through this training I am learning a great deal about computers that I would never have expected to ever know. A big thank you to the people with more computer knowledge than I have who are helping me along here. Until 48 hours ago I thought a "theme" was simply the picture on the home page of my website. Now, thanks to help from the community, I understand that a "theme" has things to do with website construction. It will take me time to learn all of this stuff, but at least I'm gaining knowledge of the terminology and what it means. Thank you.

Publish about me as a page as well, then just do the same thing you did with privacy policy. Go to your menu options, and put about me under home(main menu) above privacy policy. Stagger them to make them appear under the home menu, or go to widgets and put them in the footer space. If that doesn't work message me back.

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:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/creating-custom-menus-and-navigation

I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

PS. I can see you have also added the SIteRubix widget link incorrect at the bottom of your page (in your footer), you will want to fix that.

Hi Kyle,

at the moment. I am in the process of learning about affiliate programs and how to make money.

Do you know of anyone in WA, who is able to explain the difference between the various tax forms listed when signing up for affiliate programs?
W-8BEN / W-8IMY / W-8ECI / W-EXP
I find it very difficult to understand the difference but would like to get it right, and not risk being rejected.

My business is registered in Hong Kong.

judebanks Premium
Some affiliate programs enable you to tick an option that you do not have a registered business in the U.S. and/or that you are not located in the U.S. in which case they do not require a tax form.

Check if that option is available. If so, tick that box instead. It will then be your responsibility to meet the tax reporting requirements in your country. ~Jude
Reply
MissNielsen Premium
Thank you so much for your reply.

However, when I click the box, that I am not liable for taxes in the US, they give me 4 options for tax forms (those listed in my question to Kyle and below). And I am not sure about the difference between them.....
I will pay my tax in Hong Kong - and certainly, don't want to risk having to pay any in the US too!

1. W-8BEN- Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding
2. W-8IMY- Certificate of Foreign Intermediary, Foreign Flow-Through Entity, or Certain U.S. Branches for United States Tax Withholding
3. W-8ECI- Certificate of Foreign Person’s Claim That Income Is Effectively Connected With the Conduct of a Trade or Business in the United States
4. W-8EXP- Certificate of Foreign Government or Other Foreign Organization for United States Tax Withholding
Reply
judebanks Premium
I'll explain Forms 2, 3 and 4.

Form 2 - W-8IMY is for Entities.

Form 3 - W-8ECI is foreign persons who conduct an actual trade or business enterprise in the US.. (not you, unless you have a business in the U.S.)

Form 4 - W-8EXP is for foreign organizations or foreign governments.

--------.

Form 1: W-8BEN establishes your status as an individual non-u.s. resident and that you are the beneficial owner of the income received. It can also reduce the withholding tax rate in some countries when it is time to file your tax return.

Therefore the W-8BEN appears to be the right choice if the affiliate program does not provide you with any other option.

On the income tax reporting side, we must all comply with the laws in our own country and it is always best to get local tax advice from a qualified source. ~Jude

These are the different forms some affiliate programs will want you to fill out based on your country you are located. I would contact the affiliate program if there is any confusion, W8-BEN is usually if you are a foreign entity operating business with a US company.

My daughter had to be flown to Perth (Western Australia) to be met by a team of Doctors and specialists to help with her situation. Wasn't that enjoyable and plus it was night time.

Hello Kyle,
I have to say that your program does look interesting and inviting but I just need to be honest and say that I have spent a ton of money on similar programs in the past and just did not get the desired results.

I can appreciate that Samuel, 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.

I can tell you that we different, we care, and we truly have you and your long term success in our best interest. Instead of me telling you though, I would rather prove it and let the community and everything within the platform speak for itself.

If you need a hand with anything at all as you move forward, do let me know and I will give you a hand. ;)

PS. I hope you are having an absolutely amazing week thus far! :)

Hi, Kyle. CoachGom wrote here on WA: "What is the consequence of disobeying Google search console?"
This is kind of scary, if true. Not sure I understand, but it seems that Google new Search Console is at fault? If you or someone else could shed some light on this, to keep us from panicking, that'd be nice. Thanks, appreciate any help. Wouldn't want to panic for no reason!
Reply
Kyle Premium
No, this is not the reality. Google leaves clues and attempts to help you out, but they will not kill your business. I don't look at Google Search Console too often, I rank very well and there are likely a bunch of errors sitting in there.

I focus on building my business, not being scared about my business. Take that approach and you will be much more successful. :)

Kyle I made an honest mistake and when i finshed some of my post that had the links in them ;for my website. I placed them in the blog. I am fairly new and did not realize that was an issue. So am I no longer able to post anything in wealthy affiliate because I removed the links and tried to repost and could not .

Kyle,
I am currently trying to finish up my website with the free version you guys offer, but I'm having problems. I am currently in a situation where I can't afford the premium version for additional help. I'm sort of looking for a "something from nothing" money making endeavor. I have no money, no job, no nothing...I live in a small town where finding a job is incredibly hard. This was my attempt at caring for my family with my intellect. Please, help me. I can't afford the second training program to find out just how I make money off of this new site.

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) and take action.

By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

Mr. Kyle,
Thank you for taking the time to check out my question!
My web site is obxmetaldetectors.com.
I want to target the customers that are making vacation reservations for The OBX, North Carolina. The beach cottage rental business' in OBX are all around, all year, with their own web sites to take reservations.
Should I contact each one to see if I can put an ad on their site, via Google Ad words? Maybe I could figure out a way of acquiring those reservation customers email address' from each realtor, (some how) ??
I see a market in selling metal detectors for the beach, in The Outer Banks. Spring is coming and I'm excited to get a really good idea and solution about this soon.
Thank you for any help ideas on this!

Hi Kyle. As I am from Australia I have opened up an Amazon account but won't allow me to give my bank details as only US residents are preferred. I can receive checks or gift cards but that is too time consuming as might be awhile before I get any rewards? Thank you

Typically you will receive checks from affiliate companies, that is completely normal. And if you do not want to use Amazon, there're many other platforms and affiliate programs outside of Amazon that you can leverage with your business.

Hi Kyle...I am very happy to read your message and hoping much that you help me out with my online business as a newbie. I have 5 grand kids (minors) all boys whom I need to atleast make a saving for them when I passed away. This is part of my goal. I know it is very challenging to me since I am new and mostly I may not understand some of the internet marketing terms since ENGLISH is my 2nd language. My goal is to be a successful internet marketer to show proof to my families and friends and help my poor island of Kosrae in Micronesia. I never heard of any Micronesian who have success in online business. So in addition this will be an historical event for me. Please guide me thru until I can be successfully on my own.Thanks in advance.

I've been trying to reach YOU. I tried again yesterday in the way that you suggested....but I guess that doesn't work either. I am seeking a very simple piece of advice. It is how I can best to a blogging webisite that will help me to sell my lifetime photographic work by accompanying each post with my writing about the situation, place, idea, person, etc. This is my real need. I am 74, have spent some 60+ years devloping my "photo eye" and It's time I earn at least the minimum needed to live. Can you aid me in this by being very clear and uncluttered about what I chould do first.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can certainly leverage your photography skills within your given niche of choice, there is lots of different directions that you can head and lots of people that you can help.

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 Terry. :)

I'm finding that in Super Affiliate training what works best for me, and maybe for others as well, is listening to the entire video the first time around, then coming back to it piece-by-piece, section-by-section, subject-by-subject, one at a time. I assume that a lot of other people out there do the same and that I am using a method that others have found effective.

Yeah, that is great. Everybody learns differently, some people like to do that, some people are more hands on, some people work in segments. This is the freedom and control that we like people to have here as they go through the training.

Hi Kyle,
I have upgraded to premium and before I spend money on buying a domain (first lesson of course 2) I wanted to run my niche past you.
I have initially set up a free website based on reviewing Texas Holdem poker books
I started playing poker during the boom around 15 years ago and I read a lot of books on the subject and although I would probably need to reread them again before writing a review, I have a outline of what a lot of the major books are about.
All of these books are available on amazon so I figured it would be easy to incorporate affiliate links later on
.
Does this seem like a good idea to you or should I rethink my niche?

Hi Kyle,
I know I have written to you before, and yet am still looking for some clarification and hoping you might me able to shed some light on my site's situation.

I have 46 posts published on m website (https://beauty-over-fifty.com) and I publish a post at least once a week. I get "some" clicks...but nothing near enough to create any sales. Been working hard for over 8 months, and though some of my post have ranked well according to Jaaxy. I still can't see near enough traffic nor any sales!
I have a "shop" page with over 800 items (from Amazon) and on almost each post I have 4-5 items with links.

Is there way you can guide me as to what am I doing wrong? This is very disheartening & frustrating!

Appreciate any input!
Thanks in advance

Kyle Premium
Shop pages won't convert, they are not relevant and you are much better off getting over to Amazon to shop.

Are you targeting keywords with every page/post on your site? What are your next 5 planned keywords that you plan to target?

You want to post on your website a minimum of 2-3 times per week. This is what will lead to your website gaining authority and if you do this over a 3 month period (consistently), that is when you are going to start to really gain traction in search with any given website and lead to much more in the way of rankings.

So make sure you have a consistent writing schedule where you are targeting keywords with every page and post you create.

You don't need to be an expert, you just need to be able to inject passion into your niche. If you antt to become the expert of "dog wear" online, you can.

Nobody starts off as an expert within any niche, nobody. Every expert you see out there started off somewhere and the online world and what you learn here is going to walk you through the process of becoming an expert.

Every expert surgeon started off at one point as a first year student. Every person with expertise within the online business world (myself included) started off with ZERO knowledge.

That should be exciting to you knowing that you can enter absolutely ANY niche you want and become the expert and build a full time income doing so.

Immerse yourself into your niche. People will trust you if you can offer them help and you don't have to reach the "expert" status to have a full time business within a niche.

You can get all of your affiliate links from the WA Affiliate Program page Sammi. You will see the link at the top of this page.

Here you will get everything from your stats, the program details and commission structure, your affiliate links, create your custom messages, get banners, and some other awesome features.

If you are interested in promoting WA, I highly suggest you work through the Affiliate Bootcamp. This is training that I created and put a lot of thought and energy into. It is very interactive and if you work your way through all of the phases I can assure you that you will have a business in place.

You can promote as many affiliate programs on your website as you like.

Over time you will likely be promoting many different products/services on your website and this will take place as your build out content and you see a good match between an audience and a product.

Remember, your role as an affiliate is to connect your traffic (an audience) with a product or service that will benefit them. This will be based on the context and relevance of the content.

Hey Kyle! Just a few questions. So, you do not need your own product/s to sell, right? Just an idea? Do you think you can be more successful with your own idea instead of being an affiliate for WA? Does the premium membership make a huge difference in how much you can earn? Is it a one time payment or a monthly payment for the premium membership? By the way, I like how you can go at your own pace here. I work full time and have a family so I am trying to put aside some time in the evenings to go over the lessons. There are even some nights that I can't get to anything. I love that I don't feel rushed and can take my time:)

Hi Jennifer, until Kyle gets here I can share my thoughts.

1. You do not need your own products to sell.

2. You can be successful as an affiliate and/or with your own products. It depends on factors, how much in demand your product is, its quality, price, etc. If you have a great idea for creating your own product, you can also include that on your site in addition to affiliate products.

Before adding products, it's important to build up traffic and an audience for your niche, because without traffic to your site, nothing much happens.

3. Yes, the premium membership makes all the difference. It includes everything you need to succeed - all the training, tools and support. The free Starter membership is great for getting started. that's why it is called the Starter membership.

4. The premium membership is $19 for the first month if you get it in the first 7 days. After that it is $49 per month. You will save if you upgrade to yearly - it works out to $29 mo. instead of $49. You can go yearly at any time and get a pro-rata credit for the payments made up to that point.

Yes, its wonderful that we can work at our own pace and comfort!

I hope this helps. ~Jude

There is not an app for WA on either IOS or Android. We are coming out with a full mobile version come this spring, but we don't have a mobile app and we have no plans to do so simply because you cannot build a business on mobile (although you can consume training and interact here). Live chat is currently fully mobile, but as I said this spring the mobile side of things is going to be much more advanced.

The reason we are not interested in doing an app is because it would limit the functionality that is available here to the community And we feel we can do a much better job with a mobile version versus going the app route.

You have to create your gravatar account, no information in particular is used as you will be choosing which email you set up your account with. It is independent of WA, so feel free to use any email you want there.

Here is some training on how to set-up a gravatar account: Each Gravatar account you create is tied to a unique email. The photo associated with that gravatar account is uniquely tied to that email as well and that will be the image used when you post comments through the SiteComments platform or on your website.

I just upgraded to the Premium Membership, I am severely tech-challenged & trying to create my website. I want a vivid picture of flames, depicting Hell, but cannot find one. Also, is there any local help, in the Chicago area, where I can sit down with another member & get hands-on help? "defeatthedevil.siterubix.com" is the domain name I chose & I received a message that it is available. However, when I got to "choose a design" & began to look for pictures of fire, I was unable to locate any. I want to become an Affiliate Marketer for Wealthy Affiliate, as well as Amazon & Best Buy. Much of the profits earned will be used to finance a Youth Ministry, throughout Chicagoland, using Bible Scriptures about Hell to, prayerfully, "scare them straight!" Will I need to upload the fire image, from another source?

You can add images very efficiently as a Premium member within SiteContent. You will add images using the "image" icon within the editing tool bar. (see attached)

You have over 1+ million HD images to choose from within SiteContent, And you can also upload your own images, crop, align, link, and upon publishing your content, they will be compressed and optimized for maximum efficiency and load times on your web.

As for local help, we don't have a platform for offline, but there is lots of help here at WA. You can use the ask a question feature, jump into a live chat, etc.

My only criticism of WA so far would be the site content tool. It is very limited for formatting and tricky to use. I see many people struggling with it.

Because of this I format my content in word then copy and paste it into the site content tool so that I can use the grammar and spell checks.

The checks that this tool does are second to none and awesome for improving on your content. But as a formatting tool it could do with some improvements.

What are the main issues you have with this? Please let me know and I will give you a hand. Your feedback is definitely important and using Wordpress directly and other editors over the years, I use SiteContent solely for my business and it has lead to efficiency in design, content accuracy and overall production that I have never seen.

If you can let me know where it is "limiting" or "tricky" that would be very helpful so we can take your feedback and improve upon it. Thanks Danni.

Like I said there are many online marketing systems out there, but I think i'm cut out for affiliate marketing when it comes to online business. I really like it!

Thanks for sharing your knowledge to the world and being open for us to receive. I greatly appreciate you and look forward to working with you and know that I can reach out with questions or concerns since that is part of learning! :)

Hi Kyle Have posted in this in other places but have not found an answer. I have tried everything to remove the Privacy policy from the very top left of my page, as its already showing where th tabs normally are. After trying everything everyone was suggesting and not working I decided to delete the Privacy Policy and tabs in the backend and start again reposting it to my site, thinking the problem was not in the 'custom menus part. After reposting it for content to my site it has shown up again top left of the page, as well as top of page below header?? Not sure what else to do now? Feel behind in spending so much time struggling to address this? Can you help please?
My website is happiseniors.com

I wouldn't worry about this too much while you have minimal content on your website. If you want to though, 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!

It's bothering me being there so really want it gone? Not sure though if it's to do with the menus if it appears in that top left position after I completed it as 'content". Or am I not understanding what you are saying?
Thank you!

(P.S. Sorry if I sound stupid but I have a learning disability and new concepts dont come easy to me!)

You can manually update the menu and control these top menus through custom menus (so you add whatever you like up there). The training tutorial will walk you through the process. Otherwise, they will be naturally added as you create "pages" on your site.

Posts by default will not go up there, hence the reason why you want to create custom menus.

Are you asking about plugins? There is no need to buy any plugins at all. The training only recommends free plugins.

Which plugins did you pay for? ~Jude

Are you referring to paying for the plugins? If so, you will need to contact whoever you purchased the plugin through for a refund. They will get you sorted.

Hi; I'm going thru the lessons, again, reading the text. I missed something, so when it came to setting up the "Main Menu", I had my all of the "About Me" posts, but NO "Home" page to select. I still don't know why, but while reviewing, I found another typo, one I'm missed first time.

Lesson 2 says, "Before you earn money,...and the working to get traffic to...". The word "the" doesn't belong.

Kyle, I hope you don't mind me sending you these. I know it's not a BIG deal, but I think it's important. Kind of a PR point.

Hello Kyle,

I am curious if Wealthy Affiliate provides a Heat Map for our websites, to judge how much time a mouse is at or on any particular point of the site? If not, I thought that would be a cool suggestion. :) Great marketing tool.

Thank you for your time and have a blessed evening.

Sincerely,
Rayanna

There are many tools and plugins out there for this that you can add to your website. We don't have heat map software, but as I said there are services dedicated to this out there if this is something that you need.

I personally have never used this technology or felt too much of a need for it, people's cursors don't necessarily indicate where their attention is on the page so they can actually give bad data. ;)

I have the doubt that many have about being able to make a decent amount of money doing online marketing.It is a process that will take time I believe.With any consistent effort I am certain it can be done,and I will stick with it to see what kind of success it will produce.It is never easy when many tell you it is an impossible feat.The moment I am away from like minded people,even among family,I am discouraged as they tell me its a waste of my time and effort.

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 tra
