People work for years, they earn an hourly wage, they maybe get a raise or small promotion after 5-10 years.That is an incredible amount of time to wait for a raise. I mean, you work an average of 35-40 hours per week, for 52 weeks per year. That is 2,000+ hours. Extrapolate that over 10 years, and you have spent 20,000 hours to get a meaningless increase in wages, often times following the rate of inflation (so you are not actually LOSING money as your career goes on.The Online World, a Skewed

Website Iteration THREE: October 12th, 2016We have launched iteration three of the website on October 12th, 2016. We liked the latest updates and they definitely lead to a boost in overall conversions. One thing that we felt we were missing that we had on the last website, was a coffee cup. It gives the home business that coffee shop feel which is a bit more hip and is he reality of what an Internet business is.We also put some emphasis on the sign-up form with the yellow box and moved the Se

When Google rolls out any of their animal updates, search engine marketers scurry to find out not only if they are impacted by the updates, but what they can do to adhere to them.Penguin 4.0 (announced by Google on September 23rd), also known as Penguin Real Time is no different. Something strange is happening though. People here within Wealthy Affiliate and people I have worked with over the last 11 years don't even flinch when Google rolls out a new change to their rankings. Why? Because the

There is the natural tendency to fear anything new. The most common excuse preventing someone from starting something is the fact that they are totally "green" to it. I hear this on a daily basis."I don't know if I can do this because I am totally green to this whole internet business/marketing thing". Yeah, well guess what. I was once green too. In fact, there was a time when I didn't even have a computer, or know how to turn on a computer. A time when I didn't know the first thing about

I remember it like yesterday... We had just wrapped up the "go live" of our website. We put the final touches on it. We had set-up our payment, had the membership ready to go, had the sales page in place, was born! (please don't laugh when you look at our original site below)When we launched, we were a keyword list service. That's it. We charged $29.99 per month or $359.88 per year. We provided people with a list of handpicked keywords for PPC a few times througho

WealthyAffiliate has been updated to look beautiful in Facebook with our new design and focus to attention. Facebook has a special protocol called "Open Graph" that allows you as a website owner to choose which images you show for which pages on your site.

In the past, when you

Well the time has come, we are increasing our price. As discussed and validated by the WA community earlier on this year, we are going to be moving our price out of the “info product” price point to a more service based price point.We have struggled with our price for years, we know that $7’s have the tendency to “convert” within the info product industry at a higher rate and this has proven true with any info product we have offered people. Shams and scams in the

A common question that folks have is whether or not they should target only one keyword per post. It is a fair question, because when do research online we are researching individual keyword phrases. The Assumed Keyword Truth is NOT the Reality.The idea of being able to target only ONE keyword per post can feel very limiting and it feels as though you are not going to really get much benefit from one post. When starting out, we naturally question the 'opportunity' of the Internet business wor

It is a constant worry when people are starting out online that the proverbial opportunity “well” within any given niche will run dry. When will I tap out my niche so there is no opportunity left within it.The answer. Never.You will never run out of opportunity within any niche, in particular if you spend time working within your niche, regularly research products/services, forums in your space, other websites/blogs, and question and answer sites relating to your niche.This is somet
