Just LOOK What Has Happened!

Last Update: February 26, 2015

I have been plugging away, not knowing really how my efforts were scaling in the big wide world of the web. Here in our Wealthy Affiliate community you will hear it repeated many times, "just keep writing". Create content that helps people, solves a problem or reaches out to touch and engage with them.

I'm not going to belabor this, I just want our new Wealthy Affiliate friends to know and my lovely network of supportive people to see, especially the new folks, that ...

What we are trained to do, come on now, no doubts allowed...IT WORKS!

The powerful tool of Jaaxy helped to answer the question that has been bugging me for the past month. I am writing what I feel is good content, helpful posts that are usually over 1,000 words and filled with engaging information, sometimes even alarming information. But I just didn't know if my site was getting anywhere, if I was being seen, if my words were just falling on empty netherland virtual space. Jaaxy has me smiling. See me smiling? "-)

Now don't get me wrong, I have a long way to go. I'm still not getting enough engagement on my site. Some comments, which are most appreciated, are coming but the engagement probably isn't enough for the big G (Google) to smile at me. "-)

But WOW, look at these stats I just downloaded from my Site Rank research in Jaaxy.

Here is the scoop...

Position 189 Page 19

Position 123 Page 13

Position 59 Page 6

Position 58 Page 6

Position 51 Page 6

Position 50 Page 5

Position 43 Page 5

Position 42 Page 5

AND a GREAT BIG DRUM ROLL NOW....

Position 5 Page 1

You should have Jaaxy! What an encouraging and enlightening feature the ability to do Site Rank analysis. This feature is like a bonus +++, especially when you remember its bar none the BEST keyword search tool out there. If you can find a way to get this feature for your website work, it will be worth it. It took me a year to finally have the cash flow to grab it up, but tonight, tonight it is priceless!!!

So Happy I Have Invested in Jaaxy and Wealthy Affiliate

Oh my goodness, I am SO excited! No sales yet! But that's no doubt because I have so much more to do in monetizing my site. But oh my goodness, I mean for goodness sakes, I mean WOW,

I have one of my blogs ranked on Page 1.

I'm dancing! And there is a song in my heart. And I'm just going to keep going at it. Excuse me now! I think I'll go and get that next blog written.

Stay well and keep smiling! In time you will see these WA milestones reached too!

Linda, I want you to know your Blog put a smile on my face and yes, I'd love to have Jaaxy too, but like you I have to wait. I haven't been able to monetize my site yet and that's OK:) I just keep plugging away and I know eventually it will get it's just rewards. Keep :)ing Sharon.

Dear Sharon,

It is absolutely and positively true that you will receive your "just rewards". We both just need to keep plugging away. I have barely just started to monetize my site and have so much to learn about running a 'campaign' but I am convinced once I have that figured out things are going to start popping.

The same will be true for you too. I have visited you site. Your kindness is shining through. And as you continue to write and add content it will be inevitable to see things turn up good results.

Thank you for taking time to read through this little celebration. You will have them too!

Linda

Hi Linda, by any chance is that you swimming with the Dolphins in this photo. My husband Doug and I did that in Key Largo in 1998. We lived in the US for 16 years, but had to move back to Canada 4 years ago. I'm optimistic that I will monetize my website one day soon too. Thank you for checking my site out as well. I'm glad I met you. Keep smiling. Sharon:)

Yup, that's me, curly head brunette, got them all from my daddy. I was in Hawaii and my son gave me this wonderful opportunity as a gift. Still remember with fondness the touch of this lovely animal's skin. What remarkable creatures! What amazing creations we hardly have time to get to know.

I will be back to your site to leave a comment. You do have the ability for that to happen, right?

Hi Linda, I know we swam with two of them at the same time. They are such gentle creatures and intelligent beyond our comprehension. We had a video done so we can look back and revisit this wonderful experience.

I'm sorry Linda, but I don't understand your question at the bottom of your comment, the ability to have what happen? Sorry about that:) Sharon:)

No worries. When I go visit a members site I like to take time to leave a comment for them. When I go back to it that will be my intention, to leave you a comment.

Been a bit snowed under with chores these past three days. Had to get my winter garden in before it gets too chilly. Its one of the ways I stretch my dollar. And besides I love that I can serve food that I know is not GMO, hasn't had any pesticides or herbicides used on them and will be filled with flavor.

Talk again soon!

Linda

Hi Linda, Great Idea, I used to have a vegetable garden, but can't do that anymore. I really miss it. I don't like processed food either and I go back to the basics of preparing our own food. I always find lots to keep me busy:) You take care and catch up with me when you have a chance. Keep :)ing. Sharon:)

Great site you got it together. You always have to think positive Every day, take a few minutes to look at your progress towards your goal, and pat yourself on the back for what you've done, even if you think you haven't produced meaningful results. Keep thinking positive you will reach your goal. Have a blessed day

Thanks for this insight. I am using Jaaxy for some time already, but I was not aware of the Site Rank feature.
I have now checked my blog posts with Site Rank and got some interesting insights about my site. Though I am not sure what to do with it. Besides seeing which of the posts have received higher ranking (which I can't explain why), I found that around HALF of my posts could not be found in the 20 first pages of Google, although I chose initially "low hanging fruits" according to Jaaxy. What can I do with this information now?

I'm in the same boat as you. I have invested in both Jaaxy and WA and have been plugging away at writing posts with keywords found through jaaxy.

Congratulations on having one of your blogs ranked on Page 1! I'm not there yet, but I'm not far away either and my blogs/posts are definitely getting ranked. I don't have very much engagement on my site either though nearly a week ago, I had someone post a comment on one of my blogs thanking me for a specific piece of information on that particular blog.

That just goes to show me that my stuff is actually being read and that I need to keep plugging away and hopefully the sales will come. I look forward to that day when I get my first one. I have a mixture of posts that are at least 1,000 words and some that aren't as those that are usually less than 1,000 words are about new information released of an upcoming new product. Keep up the good work! You and I can only go up from here! :)

Wonderful confirmation that keeping at this will bring us closer and closer to our desires for a website that in time will turn into financial support for ourselves and our loved ones.

I'll check into your site in a bit. For now, just have to do some catching up with folks. I am confident we will both keep this momentum and yes...You are only going to go up from here!

Hey there Mark! How are you doing there in the frozen north. Or have you been able to get back to the islands for their warmth and what I expect is some time to refill those energy banks.

I'm glad to see you are still in the mix here. It is "great" to have reached this milestone. Thanks much for reading and your comment.

Where is that. Going to the Bahamas Tuesday.

Belize and the Mexican village of Xcalak are in the western Carribean. Belize was once British Honduras, a colony of the British realm. When we were there Harriers still flew over the country, 1978. My son was only 2months old. I learned the ways of the island folks. We lived in a hiuse with no plumbing,so I brought water from the local rai , tank and community well.

We ate well, he was a spear fisherman so sometimes we ate lobster for breakfast. What a life. Simple. Uncomplicated. Mostly peaceful, except when people didnt live by good principles , which happens everywhere in our world and has for eons.

Say hello to the ocean for me when you get to the Bahamas. ;-)

Yes Peter it takes patience and perseverance and just keeping at it. Maybe a bit of faith, but I don't think luck has anything to do with this. It is work but I get that neither of us are strangers to work, in fact work can and does bring allot of satisfaction if done according to our values.

So glad that you found something to encourage you in my celebration post!

Hi there, Robbie,

I know you have been working hard and engaging here in the community and keeping after your goal of being more present for your children. I want that for you too because i know all too well the anguish that comes with having to work and missing them.

Love hearing that my little ditty and dance has brought a piece of inspiration for you and maybe another little tap on the shoulder that you are in the right place and with time it will begin to make a difference as you will reach your goals.

Sometimes slow and steady is frustrating but it is most definitely still progress!

Linda, that has always been in the back of my mind as young adults now have a tough time, so given my time again (not that I have regrets) it is just with the benefit of hindsight, I would say to choose a path which is ever-green and interesting. If you can master marketing then you really can have a life of your dreams. I think young people now who live with social media and you tube reviews etc etc, can easily learn to monetise their interests. The fab thing about marketing is that if your interests change then you can change your business too - or add another! Marketing offers so many opportunities for young people! If you can show a young person that they can say for example monetise an interest in xbox gaming, by blogging with keywords and then linking with affiliate networks who sells cheat sheets etc or strategy products etc, they could then buy the product themselves and do a full review both on blogs, social media and you tube video reviews pointing back to their blogs, etc etc . So long as you can spark a young persons interest like that then it could be shown. Obviously that is just an example. :) Advertising and marketing is not dwindling. It is growing and therefore my advice to any young person would be try to be your own boss and to go 'where the money is' as it were! :)
