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, tech support question on the link referrals in Your WA Referral menu. The link:" Create Account' links directly back to my account instead the WA website creation page? Who does this info need to be directed to get the link fixed? The other links seem to direct the reader to a creation page, jst not that one. Also the links appear as text http if I attach a banner to my website instead of pictures. Is this because I have starter account?

Hello, Kyle!

For starters, I want to thank you for the opportunity to be here. So far, I am really enjoying it!

Now for my question. I have a list of 10 niches and have narrowed it down to two for my first website. Are either of these plausible to you? one is: Workouts I Can Do - these will be exercise/workout programs for the elderly, handicap and those with limited physical abilities. That is the one I'm leaning towards. The other is more straight up: As Seen On TV - the obvious of a collection of the items seen in television ads. Am I good with either of these or should I try again? I appreciate your help and guidance.

Hello Michael,

You have not registered "websitedevelopers.com" with WA. You need to contact the domain registrar to update WA's nameservers to it.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

I have no idea what that means? are you saying that I can keep that domain name?

I got this reply and I have no idea what it means? does this mean I can keep my domain name?

Hi kyle,

Can I get some help, I trying asking literally everyone including site support and they keep misunderstanding me.

I have a site and a facebook page dedicated to this site and now im only just finding out that it's not my site?

I thought i bought the site website developers.com and you attched siterubix to it to help it rank.

Then after 30 days im meant to delete siterubix off it?

Now i'm trying to find out if this is true?

I know I can move my site, but I thought that I purchased websitedevelopers.com

Can you understand how screwed I Am now?

I have all my content relating to that site name "websitedevelopers"

Hey Kyle, Glenn here. I did want to follow up on your question of is there anything I had questions on. I did specifically have a niche question. I am looking to get into a niche that I enjoy but feel that may start off too broad, in this case, the cosplay community, I've already looked on Google and found cosplay sites that have affiliate programs, and I know Amazon does as well cater to this niche.

My question is, is cosplay too broad as there are many facets to it, such as cosplay materials, safety equipment (could be lumped in with materials), cosplay ideas and discussions, books & blogs on cosplay, things of that nature. I"d love to cater to all of it but I get the feeling that this would be biting off too much at first. Your thoughts?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You could head in that direction as a broader brand, but you might want to start off with a segment of this broader niche as you build out your website.

I think that approach would keep your website specific to an aspect of cosplay, but give you the flexibility to scale your business out within many different segments.

Hi Kyle. It's incredibly difficult to leave you a private message so I need to do it here.
I've been a member for a few years now, and I love the whole platform. Well, until now.
I've been trying to leave comments in order to request comments on my posts, yet I'm constantly getting the message that everyone who has requested has been left comments and to try back later. I'm told that this is because people are now paid to leave comments and so are snapping up the opportunity, leaving the rest of us to have to buy credits in order to be able to request comments, which I won't be doing as I already pay for my membership.
Surely this isn't what WA is all about these days? Surely it's a community who help each other achieve our goals? Surely this paid-in system of giving and receiving comments is inherently flawed and NEEDS changing??? I can't be the only one thinking this.......
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can get through the process if you select that you didn't find an answer in the PM process, or you can respond to an old PM from me. You can get through the process, but to eliminate duplicate questions over and over we point people to resources first.

We are going to be making some changes to the comment platform. We added incentive to the platform (cash credits) and since then, it has blown up in the other direction, as in, too many commenters not enough comments now. So we need to move the needle back and Carson and I were both discussing that this AM. We will get this sorted. We went from not having enough commenters, to have too many overnight lol.

Thanks for your patience, of course you can purchase comments at this point system, just the "earning" comments isn't as efficient as it once was.

Hi Kyle,

My name is Daniel, and I've been a Premium WA member for some time now (on-and-off). I've completed the marketing component of my business degree, grown up, etc. My goal for this summer is the work professionally as a marketer full time. Either at an agency or in-house. Then on the side work on affiliate marketing with the help of WA. I was recently charged $299.00 for WA Premium which I'm not ready to take full advantage of yet because of my packed schedule. I will rejoin in the future as a Premium WA member and seriously focus on it because I know I don't want to do traditional work. Could you please reverse/refund the $299.00 I was charged on Friday, February 15, 2019, because I need that money right now?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Is there anything I can help you out with before you decide to quit Daniel? If so I would be more than happy to give you my personal support.

Often times I see folks quit just prior to their break through moment and I can tell you based on experience is that those that persist through times like this are those that turn out to be the most successful (in any business).

If you do decide to quit, we will host your website for an additional 30 days before we remove it. If you want to retain your work, you will either have to resubscribe (which is very easy to do) or you will have to move it to another host (which is up to you).

If you want to quit, you can do so within the Account Settings page:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

Either way, I do wish you all the best Daniel and I do hope you decide to change your mind, but it is completely up to you. :)

Cheers,

Kyle

PS. I can refund you here if that is what you are really after, not an issue.

Hi Kyle!

Thank you for your quick response. Before I read your comment, I had already unsubscribed because I thought my message didn't go through (I thought it would be a PM and didn't see it in my outbox).

Yes, could you please reverse/refund the most recent $299.00 charge to my credit card?

I plan to return this summer with more time and energy to focus on my interests including affiliate marketing via WA.

Thank you again, Kyle!

Hello Kyle! Your help is needed. Since the release of the Site Comment 2.0 platform, I have been able to bring in many premium referrals and it has helped many ot them pay their monthly subscription with ease but unfortunately for me, all of those referrals have reached out to me and made me realize that they have not been able to find a blog to comment on despite that they all request comments through the platform.

I also discovered that I can not get blogs to comment on despite that I do request comments to my sites.

View a question asked by another member of WA who has recently retired from Long Island NY and living in Palm Bay FL and other people's responses to his question through the link below. And kindly help us look into this issue, Kyle. It wasn't like this ever. This has never happened since the 5th of October that Carson released the platform in a blog post. Thanks, Kyle!

We are addressing this. We have TOO MANY people wanting to comment now, versus not having enough before. The cash credits created this mayhem, and this is something that we are going to be addressing very soon so there are more available comments within the platform. :)

Hi Kyle when making a website to refer WA do i link it to your website or to mine. Do I set myself to collect emails to send people information material or i just refer them to WA and if so where? i don't understand the whole strategy, before deciding how to start my website i need have these details sorted out
what do i use the banners as pictures ? then how do i link the banners for example there's a banner that has a click here bottom where do i Link that bottom to your website any specific WA.com website or to my detailed information within my own website ?
thanks

You would be linking to WA, through your affiliate links that you put on your website. So you build out your website, publish content that ranks in search engines, this leads to traffic, and then as the traffic comes to your website you direct them over to WA through targeted mentions/promotions.

Hi Kyle,

I was sent a premium link by MarioMic87 and I signed up using his link. I was aware that he would get some of the commission as I used his link, but for some reason this did not happen. I was not messaged or sent any sort of information by the man that has now got commission from me signing up. Could this be sorted out?

Kind regards,

You actually ended up signing up through another affiliate, that is why. The last affiliate link clicked, will get the referral so if you went on to do research after clicking their link, then that is why.

Not to worry, you have help from the entire community here at WA, including from myself. :)

There are many ways in which you can find and add images to your website. I have outlined this within a video walk-through that I created on images. This is very thorough and will give you a lot of great ideas as to how you can find and incorporate images on your website. Also, do know that if you are an affiliate of Amazon you can use any of the images (product) from their website on your website if you use their specific linking codes, which opens you up to an image bank of MILLIONS of images.

There are also other CC0 sites out there that you can leverage. These are free public domain images to use how you wish.

Hi Kyle sorry I don't see my comment or post or whatever, I asked the following 3 questions;

Will my Android samsung J1 be problematic or cause limitation?

Will I still be able to operate after my starter membership expires in 7 days?

And if I commit 2-3 hours a day to this platform, because I'm still employed, how long do you think on average, before I can quit my job and commit to this full time?

I also thank you for creating this platform, respect

Sure, happy to help you out here:

Will my Android samsung J1 be problematic or cause limitation?

You can use mobile devices to run your business, you of course will be more productive if you have access to a desktop or laptop, but by all means you could.

Will I still be able to operate after my starter membership expires in 7 days?

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 Charl!

And if I commit 2-3 hours a day to this platform, because I'm still employed, how long do you think on average, before I can quit my job and commit to this full time?

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!

Hi Kyle,

I am working on my review on WA.

Can you please give me an updated list of countries in which Free Starter Membership is not available. I am asking this as I was able to join as a Free Starter Member from India even though it showed that India didn't qualify for this.

Also can you please let me know that from where and how can I add images of WA training courses, Jaaxy Keyword Tool, Success Stories at WA etc. in my review ?

Thanks,

Reply

They are available in India, Pakistan, and Philippines now. So yes, they are absolutely available. Basically the only country excluded from the Starter membership now is Nigeria, because of the high rate of fraud. Even at that, they can join as Premium!

And if you want to add images of the courses, Jaaxy, etc, you can do so by creating screenshots. We have no problems with that.

Hola! I finally logged in over here. Heck, I bought my year membership for Black Friday. I've just been super busy. Copywriting never stops.

I have a plan for this though. I was thinking tonight about how all of my writing clients are suddenly wanting SEO content that's like 2,000-3,000 words long (Cornerstone content is what we copywriters call it,)

I understand why they want this because the top organic spots on Google are hitting around 1890 words on average. But man, some stuff doesn't need content that's quite that long.

So I'm wondering, are you seeing this change affecting the affiliate marking world? I don't normally take on clients who are affiliate marketers because they tend to want cheap, fast writers. That's not me; I'm not a cheap date!

So I'm kind of wondering if this has become the norm in the affiliate marketing world too?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You don't have to make all your content that long, some posts will be 1,000 words, some will be 5,000. Just depends.

I always say that you should write until you have gotten the subject matter covered that you had "indicated" within your site title. This is a sort of a promise to your readers.

Content is becoming longer yes, in some case, but it is marginal. Google has remained unchanged over the years, they have consistently gone after the BEST content, that will help their users out the most. That is thorough, useful content.

Hi Kyle...I am trying to nail down a niche in the health category like sleeping. Trying to help people with snoring or sleep apnea. The other niche is in the heatlh area of herbs. I am not certain if I should focus on one herb like Moringa or several herbs on a single website.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Hi Kyle! I'm looking to start my own website, I have no problem choosing a niche, keyword research and I have basic knowledge of both onsite and off-site SEO.
The only problem I seems to be facing right now is how to use my own domain I already have with another web hosting company.

You can use it with the hosting here. You just need to updated the DNS. Is your website established, or is a domain that is parked and ready to use?

Sure, then you would need to move it over.

It is quite a manual process to move a website to WA, but it can be done if it is a Wordpress based site.

You would have to follow these steps:

(1) Download your content locally
(2) Update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

(3) Build a website here at WA using the website builder.
(4) Transfer your content over to WA

This is a very manual process and it can be done, but I don't recommend doing it if you have an established high ranking website, I don't usually recommend moving it.

If you need any further help, let me know.

Hey Kyle,
I just went premium and I've continued on to lesson one of the second step of the getting started. I wanted to ask you a question before I purchase a domain. I'm not sure I'll be able to pay the premium membership fee next month, I plan on it but I have some other expenses coming up that will have to take priority. If I buy a domain now but have to go back to the free membership for a month or two, what will happen to my website? I want to go ahead and get ranked as fast as I can which I understand would be to go with buying a domain, I just don't want to loose all my hard work if I can't keep up with the premium membership fee right away.
Reply

Sure, you can put your membership on hold. You won't be able to downgrade to a Starter membership, however you will be able to resubscribe to your Premium account at any time and reconnect your membership including training progress, all of your activity within the platform, content, websites, etc (when you can make it back). ;)

If you need to cancel you can do so through the following link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

Do know that we will 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. We can restore your website for up to 6 months if you come back beyond the 30 day mark.

Hope this clarifies for you!

Sure, happy to help you out here:

1. I should setup a separate website from my electrical service business or I can use the same one?

You should keep them separate. Don't try to stuff several different ideas or businesses into the same site.

2. What products should I place on my website? How to select them?

That is covered in detail within Level 3 of the training. You are going to promote products/services that are contextually relevant.

3. How can I attract customers?

This comes down to traffic. The first focus is SEO, which is going to allow you to get ranked in Google, Bing and Yahoo and drive free and very relevant traffic that way. The training is going to be walking you through the process.

4. How do I know which e-commerce company has affiliate market, such as ebay, amazon?

You can simply search for it. How to find them is going to be covered as you move through the training.

There are many ways in which you can find affiliate programs for your site (across any niche/topic). Here is some training on how you can go about finding affiliate programs in your respective niche: There are 10,000's of affiliate programs out there and millions of products you can promote as an affiliate.

You can cancel and resubscribe.

OR do know that we always give folks a flex period in which they can make payment if the first payment or two fail.

If for some reason your membership is cut off, you will be able to reconnect your membership (in its entirety) when you do have payment available.

Thanks for letting me know. :)

Hello Kyle, Site Support will not let me ask a question because it seems to be down. So I will ask you if you can help.

I'm having trouble knowing how to install and where to put the code given from Google AdSense in the HTML of my site homestereosystems.net.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You find this within your actual code, which is found within your Editor.

If you go to:

Appearance => Editor => Header.php

Within your WP back office, you will be able to edit the code and you will see this code there. Then you can add the Adsense code that is given to you. Just make sure you do not delete anything within the code as it can break your site.

Hope this helps you out and if you need any further help, let me know.

Excellent, so wonderful to have you here at Wealthy Affiliate. You sound like a very intelligent mind and if you apply just a fraction of this knowledge and work ethic to the online world, you can create something of substance and that can result in a long term and sustainable business.

I really look forward to working with you!

Hi kyle and thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I'm a complete novice with online marketing. I ve been off work for quite a while as I was home educating my 3 children for nearly 10 years now which is in itself a proper job. But now I'm ready to move in and learn about something different and this opportunity of affiliate marketing. Tbh with you I had never heard of it before. It's only last week that I heard of it for the 1st time. Some might think am I living on planet earth. I didn't know this had been around for so many years. So I'm ready to learn and ready to grow a long term successful business with your help and the help of the community.

I was once "green" to all of this Internet stuff, as with anything new you are going to be green to it when starting out. No different than riding a bike or learning how to talk, you once didn't have this knowledge but you acquired it by doing and by being taught by others that know how to do it.

The same goes with WA. You can learn this and we will teach you everything you need to know and offer you all the support you need.

Have a read of this post, it is going to be relevant. :) You are going to be just fine, it is not going to be long at all before you are very proficient with this Internet business stuff!

Goodmorning Kyle, I guess U liked something I said and I apreciate the fact that no one was offended. I was having a hard time trying to get some help last night and I am still in a little trouble . I couldn't put my blog onto my website. I left the computer on all nite so I can find and fix today. Ur system is very strange to me. and support doesn't have real people running it they just send a bunch of possible things to try.I will get to the bottom of my trouble somehow . Jim

A blog is naturally part of your website.

I recommend that make your home page a blog roll by default versus a static home page. This makes your website feel much more active and engaging and Google actually prefers this as well. Every time you post it will then go to your homepage which is preferable.

You may want to consider updating this within your Settings => Reading inside your WP-admin area. Make your "front page" your blog roll.

Hello Kyle,

I have finished part 1 of the starter. I am currently and simultaneously pursuing my internship in Digital and Social Media Marketing. My plate is full and trying to prioritize my steps to acquire proficiency. I don't want to give up this either.

What is your unbiased advice? I will finish most of my internship by first week of April. Will you let me enjoy the benefit of joining the premier membership as of April 6, 2019.

It will be ideal for me to focus and take off without any hindrances.
I am a retired senior and at 75 I have to be careful not to outlive my savings. I should be comfortable when I am done with my internship in India and ready to return home in Toronto, Canada.

Your advice is important and will receive my undivided attention.

Thank you

Regards,

Mani

Work at your own pace, this is definitely not a race and as you move through the training you are going to see some really good progress. I always say, as long as you are moving forward you are moving in the right direction. :)

As you start to see progress and results, you will naturally dedicate more time to your business, but I can absolutely assure you that with some hard work and dedication here, you are going to see results.

If you need anything going forward, let me know.

Sounds like you are making some good progress. At this stage I wouldn't worry too much about customization of your website, you can get more sophisticated as time goes on and we will be walking you through this process.

If you go to Appearance => Themes (and "customize" for your particular theme ) within the back office of your website, you will likely see your home page header there which you can upload an image for.

There are typically many other settings in there as well that you can use to manipulate theme colours, font colours, theme images, logos, menus, structure/layout, etc.

See attached image for reference.

So I'm cruising through the training and I thought I was doing pretty good until I got to keywords. I think the niche I chose (gifts for chinese crested owners) is too narrow since the avg numbers are too low - some are as high as 24 but the terms any higher than that I think people are actually looking for clothing for their dogs not human clothing with chinese cresteds on them. So I think I need to make my niche more general. I was thinking of doing something like owning chinese crested dogs, maybe some stuff for new owners or just in general since I could cover potty training, clothing, grooming, toys, etc. I am a little worried still though because I think some of my problems in finding keywords is the breed since other dog breeds came up when I was searching gifts for chinese crested owners and they had higher avg numbers. I'll do some more keyword searches, though I'm almost out so I may have upgrade to premium sooner than I had planned. I feel like I'm rambling at this point but what are your thoughts? Also, at this point I've already done all the steps up to the keywords on my first free website, including the domain and the lesson said it can't be changed so do you have any advice on that if I switch my niche from gifts for chinese crested owners to a more general site about owning chinese cresteds. The domain I already worked on is called Gifts for Chinese Crested Lovers.

Yeah, some themes by default don't show pages in the header menu.

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..
just want to ask you something about my current situation.. I am doing good with the training actually... slow pace but there is progress... Now, after i got ranked on google according to the keywords i entered and the confirmation note I received, yet I don't get my website listed when i do search for rampstone.com,... my website.
My question is; Am I supposed to be listed on google at this stage already, or still some stages of training i have to finish first, in order to get my website listed.? As well as the corporate deals with online shopping stores, are you going to include that in the the training?
I don't want to go through the advanced stages of training to avoid confusion.... so I don't know what's next. That's why I'm asking.
Thank you.

Not every page or post you write will rank and definitely with a new website, not everything will get indexed and rank right away.

Typically around the 3 month mark is when you will start to experience a big breakthrough in terms of search engine penetration Marwan. Posts that you have done up to that point will start to rank, move up the search results, and you will start to strike the 1st page of Google with lots of your content.

Don't panic here and don't fixate too much on rankings at this point in the game, they will happen. :)

I repeating my comment, because no one answered. I would like to know Kyle's or Carson's opinion about that problem. I wonder why here we can see all ideas, projects and intellectual products? This is the easy way to steal others idea or work. Seems that Kate35 is concerned about that, maybe someone took over her idea or website. Maybe is better to contact you Kyle or other experienced advisors privately? When I saw the versions of webpages what Kate35 made or purcased, I thought that it is a easy way to steal someones idea or intellectual work. How we can be protected here from that? Anyone can pay a membership for a month and grab, thieve, loot others ideas/drafts then copy/paste somewhere else and leave WA. We are not living in kind of virtual paradise of honesty.
I understand that it is good that we can see others struggles and questions, maybe it somehow can help someone else in similar situation...this is a good education/training system(gratitude to Kyle&Carson;), but there is the drawback of that system, this strategy or method works well only in a perfect, honest society. I do have a science background and in science you never publish your raw ideas or results, because someone for sure will steal it and will get credit first. I wonder if I am the only one who do care and thought about that problem? Really no one else care about it??

People are free to send private messages as Premium members. The thing is, there is room for 10,000's of people in every niche. We are not in competition with each other, evidence of that was in Vegas where everyone made the Vegas goals promoting the same product, but doing so much differently. There is room for 10,000's of WA affiliates to make Vegas, in an abundance of different ways.

There are 4 BILLION people online, so if you worry about people copying and stealing constantly, you are likely not focusing on the opportunity and building out your business.

People that copy online, are never rewarded. It is actually bad for SEO, and bad for their business...and they never get ahead. Those that lead and work without copying, are always those that succeed!

Create your content with intent. By this I mean, when someone is done reading your post they are going to ask themselves "now what".

At this point you need to have intent and get them to do something, whether this be comment on your post (leave feedback), check out your top recommended product, or to perform some other action. If you don't give them something to do, they will most likely close your site and never come back...which is pure traffic leak.

I have created training on this that I think will be very helpful:

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 Dale!

where do I find the place where it tells me about what I will be making if my website makes any money?
Reply

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!

All companies pay differently, most offer at minimum check payment. For example here at Wealthy Affiliate we pay via Paypal as our primary payment method, but we can also pay via check if you reach over a certain threshold. :)

As I said though, every company is different and they will state how they pay when you become part of their affiliate program.

My name is Herman. In November 2018, I contacted Carson about getting a refund and he agreed to give me a refund on my account phoenixblue. I never received the refund and I tried contacting Carson for an entire month and he did not reply to me. I could not access that account anymore because my subscription ended so I couldn't access my messages. I contacted the WA support team but they won't reply to me anymore after I told them Carson would give me a refund and I didn't receive it.

I made this new account as a final attempt to reach you before I file a charge back for the $49 Carson agreed to refund me but never did. Please contact me soon, hopefully within 3 days so we can get it sorted out before I go through with the chargeback.

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 Alex, 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:

In regards to NICHE.... if I were to pick a NICHE of say something to do with home rehab secondary to disability/injury how narrow does the focus need to be.

You are definitely thinking in the right direction here. 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 who are home bound either due to temporary disability or permanent such as myself pointing them in the direction of exercise they can do at home. But from there I get confused. Do I focus on equipment you can use in home or is that too broad? Do I need to be more specific and focus on one piece of equipment only- like say, dumbbells?

Sure, you can head in that direction. Disabled and Fit. Something like that could be a direction. Or you could head in the home exercise direction, both are completely viable.

Hi Kyle,

I have asked in Chat and left a question regarding putting a Facebook Pixel for s direct link to my WA referrals. I put it in the box that says, “Enter your Facebook Conversion Tracking Javascript Snippet that you wish to use for tracking New Premium Upgrades.” I have to admit, that I don't know if the Facebook Pixel is javascript or not - I am assuming it is.

Anyhow, the link did not work when I pressed Facebook's "tester button". So, it is still not "active" according to Facebook. I am quite exasperated after trying and trying and trying to get this direct link to work properly.

I have asked questions several times to the community. I have been on "live chat" several times. I have searched posts with people's previous questions and these questions have been left mostly unanswered. I have looked for videos. I saw some blog posts but they eatery did not make sense or did not answer the question. In other words, people don't seem to know the answer or they don't know how to communicate not beginners. A few responses were way to technical for me and, apparently, the for other questioners as well.

So, this seems to be an area that, perhaps, you could do a video on so we can watch it as it is a big source of revenue for you and your affiliates. We don't know how to do it or get our Facebook pixels set-up in a way that a novice can understand or imitate...probably a visual is the best way. Thanks for listening.

Hello Kyle. I hope you and your family are having a great day today. I would like to ask you a question. My first article to promote my affiliate links was a product that I was told I just wanted to sell the product. I didn't write a review on the product I just gave the history behind how it was discovered and what the benefits were of the product.

Is it best to write a review on the products so that the customer will have the information to buy using the affiliate links I provide so they can go look at it and decide if they want to buy? Is this the best way to promote the products I want to sell?

Thank you,

Danny
Reply
Kyle Premium
Well you can, it is up to you and the focus of the article. You want some form of "intent" after someone reads the article, so there is value to you. Sometimes a product you review won't have an affiliate program, and you can either monetize the page through advertising (Adsense or Mediavine) or of course you could promote a relevant product you recommend (that has an affiliate program).

Hey Kyle. Had a question. My Niche is golf and I would like to sell golf apparel. Can I add reviews of products from other website into my content if I give the reviewer credit? Lets face it, right now I can't afford to go buy four different pairs of golf shows and right reviews on them. let me know when you get a chance.
Reply

Golf apparel for who? You can head in that direction, but I would narrow it down.

And I wouldn't add reviews from other sites onto yours, that will hurt your website rankings (it will kill your rankings in Google).

You can review products without buying them, in an ideal situation you would own every product but there are circumstances where this isn't cost efficient or necessary.

There are many reviews on Amazon itself (if it is an Amazon product), within forums, other websites, product information, discussion boards, the actual product website, etc that you can leverage to offer a thorough, informative, truthful, and highly engagement review for your audience for just about any product you can imagine.

It all comes down to doing your research and this is part of the process when writing any content, whether it be for a review or whether it is for a product/service or a generic sort of article.

Hi Kyle, I am looking forward to delving in! I'm on vacation in Hawaii so maybe this isn't the best week to start but I found your website and loved that you are actually teaching! So many websites are about to buy my stuff before you get to know what the stuff is.
Thank you!

Don't worry, not a race and jump back into things when you return from your vacation. I know you are going to love the platform and the community here, truly everything you need is here under one roof.

We are different, in a good way. There is a reason we are the most trusted and respected company in the space. Enjoy your time in Hawaii!

Hi, Kyle

I wonder why here we can see all ideas and intellectual products? This is the easy way to steal others idea or work. Seems that Kate35 is concerned about that, maybe someone took over her idea or website. Maybe is better to contact you Kyle or other advisors privately? When I saw the versions of webpages what Kate35 made or purcased, I thought that it is a easy way to steal someones idea or intellectual work. How we can be protected here from that? Anyone can pay a membership for a month and grab, thieve, loot others ideas/drafts then copy/copy paste to somewhere else and leave WA. We are not living in kind of virtual paradise of honesty.
I understand that it is good that we can see others struggles and questions, maybe it somehow can help someone else in similar situation...but there is the drawback of that system, this strategy or method works well only in a perfect, honest society.

Why is Google finding listing my URL: https://www.empoweryourlifestyles.com as not found. I have been working with "The Wealthy Affiliate", for almost seven months. There have been some sites that have been indexed but there has been NO acknowledgement from Google. Please help me and tell me what I am doing wrong. I realize my site is not the best looking but it contains what I believe are very important answers to certain health and fitness issues. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

You are definitely in Google. See attached. By your content is not getting indexed. Are you creating content regularly, as in 3 posts per week. If not, Google will start to disfavour your site quickly and push it out of the results.

Also, your preloader screen for your website before the content loads is NOT a good idea. That can definitely impact your rankings adversely. Your website "title" is off too.

Thank you for the long awaited reply. Yes I have a few posts that have not been indexed. I also can not get my site map to work. There are other web sites which were mine but they are still on the search engine pages. When you click on them it goes to error website not found. When I type my URL:
https://www.empoweryourlifestyles.com
I end up getting this:
Did you mean: empower your lifestyles

Web results
HealthYogaFitness-https: empoweryourlifestyles.com

In Google Search it says
URL Inspection

URL is not on Google
https://www.empoweryourlifestyles.com

URL cannot be displayed because it's not in any of your properties

Everything is a big ZERO. Please help me. I am desperate. I just paid 73 odd dollars to renew my membership for another month but aside's from the knowledge I am gaining, this is really not working for me.
I have obviously made not one but several mistakes, for which I can not fix and do not have the help I keep requesting. I worked with Marley (Susan) she was of great help. Changed my theme and re-worked my site. About a month later I read a post that she was getting tired and I really can't and will not take up her time.
What she did for me was beyond anything I had expected. I think I may have contributed to her fatigue and I feel really guilty.
Kyle, you are my last and only hope, I am so desperate I am willing to pay for your help.

Kyle, I really admire your knowledge and everything you and Carson have put together. I consider myself one of the best automotive technicians and diagnosticians, the proof is in my certificates, my items of recognition and awards. You certainly do not have my capabilities in my field just like I do not have the capabilities in your field. "So I would fix your theme so it doesn't show this", thank you very much for elaborating on how to fix my theme. I first joined in December 2014 and quit after a while. I joined up again in August 2018. At 73.81 Canadian which equals 516.67 paid up to this day I certainly hope you will be able to provide me with more assistance. I would have loved to pay you the full amount for the year but due to a disability fixed income I could not. 885.72 Canadian dollars for a year. I do plan on sticking around and I am asking you to please not to send me general answers but to please help me out here with a more detailed answer. I realize you have a lot of clients and your time can be spent somewhere else. I realize also that pretty much all of the members love you, and if I post this it would pretty much ruin the friendships I have built here.

You can establish capabilities in this field, like you have anything else. Expertise takes time, it takes failure, and it takes ongoing and consistent effort. If you have specific questions, lay them out in a numbered manner. Sometimes it is difficult for me to weed through big blocks of text like this to decrypt and find the questions.

Thanks for the prompt reply Kyle, I am going to change my theme and see what happens. I appreciate your offer to help if I can communicate the problems I am experiencing. I just feel like giving up, it is so frustrating. All I am seeing is failure by me. I just wish there was a way for you to go over my site and tell me all the places I messed up. There is no point adding anything anymore if I am getting big zeros all along the board.
Thanks again,

Well if that is the attitude, then it will feel like a constant burn cycle. The thing is, with any new website you are going to see ZEROS within the first 3 months or so with consistent effort. That is the foundation building period and that effort pays off later and often times forever.

What I see is people often times act radical during this period, trying to force quicker success or they stop "doing" which will both lead to failure. Slow and steady wins the race, always.

And if a website has been neglected for a period of time it is VERY hard to recover these days. It is much more efficient to start something new with all of your knowledge and skills than to suck blood out of a stone.

Hi Kyle,

I have begun the course for your Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp. I have experience running a successful Facebook group for advice on Amazon selling (It struck a chord, over 5000 followers in 1 month, and this is my first group and I had never had a Facebook account before this group either)....so despite a successful Facebook group, I am not experienced with links and websites, etc. My experience is as a seller with Amazon and I have decided to diversify my business income and give a try at a website and affiliate marketing. I am going to be an affiliate for "Wealthy Affiliate" training/membership. I am about to begin the first course.

Yet, I stuck my affiliate link on my Facebook page (as a shortened link). I had 27 people who clicked on my Facebook offer to join Wealthy Affiliate but none of the links "went through" (frustrating) as indicated by the "0" referrals on my stats page on Wealthy Affiliate. The amount of Facebook link clicks were recorded by my link shortener, "Rebrandly". By the way, I now know that you offer a link shortener too so I will be switching to yours. I feel like lost these 27 potential customers.

I want to drive Facebook customers directly to Wealthy Affiliate with my link. Any ideas why it didn't work? I might as well earn money if I can get the customers even before I have a website up - it would be fun. Is there a video or course section I can jump to that is specifically dealing with Facebook advertising?

This is the link to Wealthy Affiliate that i put on my Facebook group. rebrand.ly/build-wellbeing.

If I did something dumb, please tell me.

Thanks,

Carol

I need to transfer my domain i purchased to bluehost, i could not afford the premium here at wealthy affiliate. I only purchased the domain about 3 days ago and Bluehost says i may have to wait 60 days to be able to transfer, unless i can contact the current registrar and delete it.. I'm a little disappointed, i did not know this was going to happen or i may not have purchased the domain at wealthy affiliate in the first place.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You actually don't need to transfer your domain, you can still use it with any host. If you quit your Premium membership, you will still be able to manage all of your domains here and you will be able to route your DNS settings (nameservers) to point to other hosting companies.

You will also be able to continue to purchase your domains as well using our SiteDomain service, even as a non Premium member.

PS. I don't recommend bluehost, they are a budget host. If you want a quality host that has same level of quality as here, consider WPengine.com. It is around $250 per month to get the same quality of hosting you get here.

Hi Kyle,

After lots of brainstorming and confusion, I have re-chosen

My Brand - Lifestyle Exchange Affiliates and

My Direction- Helping Aspiring Middle Class Live a Life of Freedom.

I think I will be more comfortable with this direction as I found more number of low competition keywords through Google Instant Technique and Jaaxy with this target audience and also much stuff available on google to do research on to publish posts.

This will help me write quality content once I build my website as
consistent content writing on various low competition keywords is what I am finding quite confusing and intimidating without which I won't be able to build a successful business.

Please help and give me some insight into this so that I can be reassured that I am heading in the right direction and start building my website.

We have 5 hours of training on Facebook Ads, walking you through the process of setting up a Fan page, right to the point of creating a fully functional ad campaign and retargeting within Facebook.

Here are the 5 classes I am referring to here and you should check this out: This will walk you through the entire process and everything you need to know about Facebook Ads.

Outside of the main two training platforms (Online Entrepreneur Certification, Affiliate Bootcamp) which are over 120 lessons combined, there are 1,000's of training modules and 10,000's of topical discussions here at WA.

If you do a simple search in the top search bar and you will realize the vastness of what is offered here at WA. ;)

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). ;)

If you need to cancel you can do so through the following link:

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 Edward!

Hi Kyle,

I have a discrepancy. Because I'm going to school, I did not have any time to use WA during 2017 and 2018. When I check my credit card, just noticed that I had been charged $299 on 11/28/2018 for the coming year, but I didn't intend to continue the subscription after the initial 2017 payment.

Could you please cancel my subscription and refund the money? I apologize that I couldn't check it beforehand because I was busy with schoolwork.

I appreciate that you got back to me. The issue here is not the 30 days problem. Your company kept my credit card information and billed me automatically. Further, I can not remove my credit card information hence your keep charging me without my consent. I appreciate your kind cooperation and maintain business professionalism. Your action made a burden to me because without my permission my credit information was stored on your database and card was charged. That is the real legal issue here.

Let's be gentlemen and resolve the issue with love and respect.

Hi,

I am stuck and can't go any further without a satisfactory reply.

I have completed Affiliate Bootcamp- Phase 1: Lesson 2 of 10.

I have chosen My Direction : Helping college students become Online Entrepreneurs.

My question is - Do I need to further breakdown my Niche/Target Audience of

1) Helping college students become Online Entrepreneurs,
further into something like

2) Helping College students looking to support themselves become Online Entrepreneurs, or the 1st option should suffice?

In the training you have given an example of Direction as - Helping Affiliate Marketers. So I think in my case 1st option should be fine but I am still confused. Before starting to build my own website I want to 100% sure about my direction.

Hi kyle

So my niche is vinyl records and possibly turntables -stylus etc

I found a keyword phrase that gets about 2500 visits avg-traffic is 461- QSR is 23

I posted a question about it and someone suggested not to post keyword phrases that have those kind of stats!

The topic is vinyl record pricing- a very in depth topic- i found another site that has quite an extensive post about it- I dont want to steal info but I don't know all that much about it- any suggestions

I am very new
my site is www.yourvinyldestiny.com

Hi, i want to let you know that i am learning a lot and im so excited to continue my journey. But.... I do have a question? Where can i get training on how to actually use the word press platform to make menus, categories, pages and so on. so far in the lessons/training we have only learned how to make a post like 6 of them so far and nothing else. People keep suggesting i add stuff to website but i simply don't know how to do to lack of training in that area. So before i continue to pay monthly for this is there anything you can provide me with or point me in the right direction to learn these steps needed to create different task using the word press platform?

Hi Kyle,

I am stuck and need some help.

I have completed Affiliate Bootcamp- Phase 1: Lesson 2 of 10.

I have chosen My Brand: Young Guns Startups and My Direction : Helping college students become Online Entrepreneurs.

My question is - 1) Do I need to further breakdown my Niche/Target Audience of Helping college students become Online Entrepreneurs or this should be fine?

2) Will I be performing a low competition keyword search with these same words ?

Thanks

Niket
Reply
Kyle Premium
No, that can work. And yes, there will be 1,000's of low competition keywords you can target within this space as you dig in. Now I would recommend you choose a relevant name and something that you like to represent your brand.

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. :)

Hi Kyle, I'm stuck on the about me page. I published it before I was done writing and now after I write something the publish button is not available again. I tried going into word press and pressed edit but again I cant see a way to add it in. Help please!
If there's another person or place I should be asking my questions to just lead me there. Thanks!

You can republish it within WA, or you can log into your back office of your website and edit it.

It will be called "Update" within wordpress after you have already published it.

Hi,

I received what looked like an auto notification email from support@jaxxy.com on 4 January 2019 - details below:
Hello Pauline,
We are sorry to see that you have cancelled your membership to Jaaxy. If this cancellation happened by mistake, please feel free to resubscribe at any time before Jan 2, 2020.
Resubscribe here: http://my.jaaxy.com/resubscribe/
Your Pro membership will remain open until Jan 2, 2020 at which time you will lose access to your Pro Account.
Thanks, The Jaaxy Team, www.jaaxy.com

I've been trying repeatedly, since 4 January 2019, to reply to the support@jaaxy.com email address but keep getting 'delivery incomplete' responses. I had purposely cancelled the account altogether BUT I forgot to cancel my auto payment through PayPal. Subsequently, the annual subscription was paid before I noticed the autopayment date. You have received an annual subscription payment for the account I closed. Please advise how I can get through to the appropriate support team so that I can resolve the problem above.
Many thanks Pauline

Thank you for your videos, very short and very explanatory. I just watched video about niches. I think about starting to work with 2 niches. Niche # 1 "organic cosmetic" and niche # 2 "microscopes for kids or scientific toys for kids". I am a scientist myself, biologist and I do understand something about microscopes and I like microscopy. On other hand, my wife like and use organic cosmetic. What you think about these 2 niches? Are they in a right direction and can be profitable?

All the best,
Didzis

Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Hi Kyle,

I'm a new member on your website and also a new born in the field of digital marketing. Before opting for premium membership I would like to understand that what is the efficiency of WA's community to make their people stand competitively in the market. What efforts they take to shape up one's career.

If I will find something worth here then I'll sure move to premium member because nothing comes for free whether it's comfort or success.

I'm here to spend my time and learn to grab the opportunities in the market.


Kindest Regards

So wonderful to have you here at WA Madhvendra! 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.

I am here to help you every step of the way, so if you ever do need a hand moving forward please do let me know and I will be more than happy to help. :)

You can learn more about the Premium membership here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup

This will give you a full breakdown of what is it exactly offered within the premium membership. I think you are going to realize that what we offer is truly the most comprehensive, technically advanced, and supportive platform in the world by a long shot. Not to mention that is the most cost efficient as well. We can appreciate the fact that when most people are starting out, they are operating off a bootstrap budget.

These two qualities (value, price) both things that we stand behind, and are proud of here at WA.

Wealthy Affiliate has been operating in the affiliate marketing and Internet entrepreneurship space for the last 12 years. During this time, we have not raised our prices, in fact, our yearly membership is cheaper today (by 88 cents, $359 vs. $359.88) than when we started out in 2005. Meanwhile we continue to invest millions of dollars per year into innovations and advancements of the technology, support systems, and the overall platform here.

So if you go to that link, it will give you the differences between the memberships here and truly breakdown the amazing amount of value you get here as a Premium member. You could truly run several multimillion dollar businesses from the platform here at WA, and many people are.

If you have any further questions about Premium (or anything else for that matter), please do let me know.

Hi Kyle,

Currently thinking about my new site with articles and most useful products for babies. I currently own a domain for shop that I wanted to create using Shopify and I have this domain laying around.

In your opinion, it's better to have a domain such as the brand name "babylo" let's say OR something like babystuffyouneed.com ?

Regards,
Lukasz
Reply
Kyle Premium
Either or could work, both could be very brandable. It comes down to choosing a domain that you like and one that resonates with you Lukasz, but both could certainly work well with your niche.

I would try to aim to be more specific as you build out your website, baby products is far too broad and you should initially target an ASPECT fo this larger category. There are literally 100's of potential niches within the broader baby category.

Hi Kyle,

I am a bit worried and I would like you to give me some advice. I joined WA in May 2017 and became a Premium straightaway (yearly). I first completed my Online Entrepreneur Certification training and created one niche website. Then decided to follow the Bootcamp training, nearly completed it and created my website intended to promote WA. So far totaling 131 posts and pages, a mix of marketing/business tips and recommendation/reviews (about 30 of them).

But, I don't feel that I am doing well enough for the work I am putting in. I am constantly reading reports of other members who have started at about the time I did and are already achieving what I am still dreaming of achieving myself.

I have asked a few very successful members to give me some advice, which they happily did, although each one has a different technique which work for them so I try this and that, instead of perhaps concentrating on one and run with it.

Things seemed in fact to be more promising before I followed the suggestions (about 4 months ago) of a successful WA member who suggested that I should have capture page as my front page instead of promoting my blog roll as you are teaching in the training. Since then, the number of my Referrals has dropped dramatically. I know that it is a numbers game and that the main aim of the game is to get as many Referrals in as possible, then to worry about having them to upgrade later.

I am promoting extensively each and every posts that I write individually as well as my capture pages on social media and I am averaging about 2,500 visitors a month.

So, what I am doing wrong? Or not right?

Here are 2 of my 3 capture pages that alternate:
https://easytoretire.com
https://easytoretire.com/free-internet-marketing-course

But my blog posts are here: https://easytoretire.com/recent-posts

Thanks for your help.

Is there anything I can help you out with before you decide to quit Vanessa? If so I would be more than happy to give you my personal support.

Often times I see folks quit just prior to their break through moment and I can tell you based on experience is that those that persist through times like this are those that turn out to be the most successful (in any business).

If you do decide to quit, we will host your website for an additional 30 days before we remove it. If you want to retain your work, you will either have to resubscribe (which is very easy to do) or you will have to move it to another host (which is up to you).

If you want to quit, you can do so within the Account Settings page:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

Either way, I do wish you all the best Vanessa and I do hope you decide to change your mind, but it is completely up to you. :)

Cheers,

Hello, Kyle, I was very excited to join the WA affiliated program, but after scoping the training, I realized that it did not generate a website just like it said. Instead, it just gave me a domain and installed WP to start building the site. I am very picky about where I send my clients because of my reputation, and if I start advertising it as making it seem easy, well I would feel heartbroken. Never the less I want to find a great program out there that is easy, but some people don't have the time. I really would love to know what is included in your premium package in detail if you can send me a link, but as of now, I think they are better off using Squarespace or Wix, though they don't have the power of Seo like WP. In that case, they would be using more PPC on google ads. I for my self own a Wix Site and 2 WP sites for different purposes.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you build a website. It doesn't come with content, that would be horrible for search engines. We have the most advanced website/hosting platform in the industry, and we will stand behind that.

SquareSpace and Wix sites are certainly options, although they don't have nearly the flexibility or functionality as a Wordpress website. There is a reason that over 30% of ALL websites on the internet are now Wordpress. With 10,000's of theme options and over 60,000 plugins (feature extensions), and a community of millions of developers it is hard to choose something else.

We choose Wordpress for our users, because well, it is the best.

Wordpress is great for PPC, we have close to 1.8 million users here, and they are doing everything from running local marketing agencies, successful SEO authority websites, PPC campaigns, ecommerce sites, or agencies. We offer that flexibility.

Hi Kyle! I have a question.

I just did the step in SEO , General Settings, changing my Home Title, Home Description, and Home Keywords, then clicked the "Update Options" button.
The video shows that when I "right click" and select "show page source", that I'm supposed to see the information I just entered.
The information I entered does now actually show up, as it does in the instruction video. I'm wondering why, and if this is a problem.

Kyle I'm stuck on the Customer Purchase Lifecycle. I guess from what I understand is that you want a keyword to make a customer buy. I thought of two things, purchase Pilates videos or write on a popular program already out there Winsor-Pilates. Could you nudge me in the right direction?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Well there are lots of keywords (and low competition ones) within any niche. Some will be later in the buying lifecycle, like "buy pilates videos", but there are many keywords that you can get to convert.

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 100 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 Donna ... 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 Donna!

Or maybe you could help with idea name of site...so the site will be about Air soft guns and accessories,paintball guns and accessories it will be also some blog about that kind of entertainment,later some review...the idea is that people can find all places where they can buy some new TOY for their hobby and their game,also maybe i will check for some war games affiliate program to ad more content to a site.What you think is it good idea or maybe i should change something.FOR NOW name of site is REBEL NATION.All the best Kyle and i can tell you that WA is AMAZING..I just LOVE IT

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.

If you are having troubles if video Karen, I highly recommend that you download Google Chrome. This should fix all of your issues.

http://www.google.com/chrome

It is free and it is by far the best browser going right now, so it will lead to a much better experience on the Internet as well! :)

And yes, you can earn money on the free membership. In saying this, generating money in the first week or month prior as a Starter is like having an your introduction course to becoming a surgeon and expecting to perform surgery within the first month.

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 or had instant revenue expectations. I would not be where I am at today (going on 12 years full time!). 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.

You will have some awesome things accomplished by the time you finish just the first 10 lessons of the getting started training and you will be prepared to build a very successful business online within the Premium membership.

But do upgrade at your own pace and take action on the tasks. Action is what will lead you to success!

I've created the website. I then saw 29.00 & 99.00. Is this per month & per year ? I don't have a product to sell. My wish was for
Kitchen remodeling, but did not see a website that accented that niche. So I used the modeling web instead( I liked the way it
looked ). Am I establishing all this to get an affiliate connectiion?
Do I have to have a name of an affiliate in mind first ?

Sorry, where do you see those price points? The price for Premium here (which includes websites/hosting and everything else) is $49 per month, or $359 per year (which works out to be $29 per month). So you can choose and upgrade as you want.

And yes, you can head in that direction if you want. There will be lots of relevant affiliate programs you can leverage.

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 Twana. :)

1) Does WA support adult themed sites? I ask this because I used to do cam modeling and have a link, which although I have done no work for the last 3 years, continues to pay me a 5.00-25.00 commission every week. I'd like to learn to optimize that.
2) A couple months ago I signed up for Amazon affiliate, and want to make use of it before my 180 days are up. Would like a comment about that, please and thank you.

Sure, happy to help.

Our hosting does not support any pornographic or adult material, there is hosting that is specific to that though that is available online.

You can if you want. I wouldn't panic though, there are not only lots of programs outside of Amazon that you can leverage (that pay more), you can reapply if you don't reach the commission threshold within the 180 days.

I am in the training phase of this process. I chose my niche to be plus size dresses for plus size women. I wanted to name my website Chubby chica. However when I got to the section of building the website and had to answer the first two questions... Should I label it plus size dresses.com or should it be the name of my website Chubby chica?... Just needed to clear that up that's all.

I think your website name is completely fine, it is brandable and you can definitely head in that direction with your website. :)

Hi Kyle,

WA is great. I'm gaining ground fast compared to the hosting systems I've used before.

Which brings this question to mind: "What happens if my site becomes an authority site?"

How does WA handle sites with potentially huge traffic flows? I mean, what about the storage capacity and management?

I'm exploring BuddyPress as the vehicle and I see it as a reality. This could happen! So, I want to get some clarity on the subject ahead of time.

Looking forward to your response and help.

Thanks

Our hosting is well equipped, we offer the most sophisticated Wordpress Hosting platform in the industry. We can handle a great deal of traffic, and if you ever reach a point where you want to be on your own server, we can get you on a dedicated server as well (so it is just your site). That will be an option available in the near future.

But in terms of power, speed and security, you have access to the best of the best here at WA!

Hi Kyle,

One of the reasons I rejoined WA was to help me market a business I'm involved with called Legal Shield. One of the things I've noticed is that the most recent post I've made hasn't seem to have gotten indexed by Google. The main page has - which is a static page - but my only post to date, has not. Any suggestions?

The main page is just a static page at prepaid-legal.net

The page that I'm still waiting to get indexed is https://prepaid-legal.net/is-legal-shield-a-scam/

Any suggestions?

So far, I've only linked to the post through twitter, but I thought that would be enough to at least get it indexed.

Maybe I just need to get some updated training. That's why I didn't want to use my old membership. LOL

Thanks,

Keith

Not every page or post you write will rank and definitely with a new website, not everything will get indexed and rank right away.

Typically around the 3 month mark is when you will start to experience a big breakthrough in terms of search engine penetration Keith. Posts that you have done up to that point will start to rank, move up the search results, and you will start to strike the 1st page of Google with lots of your content.

Don't panic here and don't fixate too much on rankings at this point in the game, they will happen. :)

Kyle, thanks for your response. Since I had written this post, I had learned additional material from your tutorials on getting a website built, and the importance of About Me and Privacy Policy pages. Since then, my pages have been indexed. Thanks for the awesome tutorials! Kyle, you seem like a pretty genuine guy. I'm really glad that I'm re-learning the ins and outs of affiliate marketing through the awesome resources you have put together at WA. If there was anything I had missed in the early years of my affiliate marketing career, I'm definitely not missing them now, thanks to you, and the course material you provide!
