https:// indicates that your website content is encrypted, that is, you have an SSL certificate set up on your website. We offer free SSL to premium members here at Wealthy Affiliate and it is simple to set-up for any domains that you own.

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!

My site isn't over here :(
It is with ehost. I would gladly switch it over to here if I could figure out how to lol

Hi! Another person also wanted to switch his site from eHost over to WA: And the recommendation of an experienced member was to ask Support. To do that, click here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Where are the best and most productive places to place affiliate links?
and which type of affiliate links seem to work the best? banners? text links?
I have banners pos

Pretty links works well when you fix them randomly on page or post. Affiliate links works well if it's not to ov o obvious on pages or post.

I like to intertwine affiliate links in my text if it is appropriate.

Don't rely on banners to make you money... put one or 2 in the side bar if you want but leave it at that ( for the sake of appearances)
Don't go down the road of expecting people to click banners, that will just annoy your visitors ( as I'm sure it would annoy you if you were trying to read information)
Provide the review / recipe.
then provide the images that makes the recipe work
Then attach your affiliate link to the recipe image for your vistor to either. ..
- read more, or
- check today's price, or
- view stock availability
Etc etc...

I agree with you I hate having to scroll through ads after every paragraph. Especially when I try to get to a recipe.

I personally go with the less is more thinking. Like Triblu said below. You will need to test different ones and see what works.

Banner ads are great for Call to action CTR and for side bar widgets and text links above the fold, I'm using pretty links

Text links placed appropriately have worked very well for me. Banner ads can also be effective, but in very small doses. I prefer using no more than one or two per page.

Hey Laurie,

Google prefers that place affiliate links get added below the fold.

As for which affiliate links works best, you would need to test each for your niche to see which one works best for you.

Personally, I do not like banners on sites where they are "in my face" and will leave a site that has lots of banners on it. I try to stick with only 3 affiliate links per web page/post.

Not everyone is going to click and buy, so if you site is not aged, this may be why you are experiencing this. If that's the case, then this video may offer may console you: Hope this helps you.

I put a banner in my side bar, so it on all of your pages
