About Loes
Joined July 2014
Thank you for your interest to visit my profile here at Wealthy Affiliate.
I have been a student at this amazing university for almost 4 years. And if you are not a member yet, I strongly recommend you sign up for a free account today to check out this excellent training facility.

ABOUT ME

My name is Loes Knetsch and living in The Nederlands. I am a mother of 6, grandmother of 4 and happily married. My full-time job is attending the children of others, I run a daycare center in my own home. (6 boys - one girl) During the day, they are all going to school, so I have quite a lot of free time. Since the first week of October 2015, I am actively coaching refugees with the Dutch language, 1 morning per week.

MY WA TRAINING

Since I joined WA I have written 100+ training courses to be helpful for the community, e.g. "Checklist before you hit the publish button 25 points." When you put this into the search bar on top you will find these amazing tips. All my other training courses and helpful blogs are listed at the top link under: Follow me on."

ABOUT MY WHEREABOUTS HERE

During my study here, I have developed 7 websites, which are attracting thousands of visitors, because I have learned how to fill in the right keywords for the search engines. The niches are very divergent.

My "This is Kids Art" website attends handmade crafts made by children between 4-12 years, those are of course made in my daycare.

My "Work at Home, the Future is Yours" website is full of tutorials about website development ( everything I learn here at this university). Which I am translating in Dutch on eigensitemaken.siterubix.com (no room for this one on my profile list) also the website where I display tips and training for Dutch language coaching to be helpful for others who want to step into this traject as well.

Then I have a "Free Images" website, which displays all pictures made by my husband and has a huge list of collected free images websites from others.

And I am proud to present you my "Kleurboekjes" websites. Coloring life for kids. A spiritual website with booklets to educate children the first steps for a holistic and spiritual view of life.

"your.siterubix", my WA Bootcamp website, I started in February 2016.

And I am irreclaimable :) My newest website is in Dutch again and is called "aloesvera.siterubix", the name says it already, this website it delegated to Aloë Vera, bee products, food supplements and superfood.

All these websites are to find on the right when you scroll down a bit.

Dear Loes--
Thank you for following back. Today (yesterday now) is my first here on WA and I'm very excited to get going with everything. Reading your profile I am struck by your character, you are the epitome of actions speak louder than words, your work is an inspiration!

In my effort to jump in, I'm attempting to get my first website operational, and while I'm not a computer neophyte, I'm finding WordPress to be challenging. Then I saw all of the content you've produced about this very subject and I can hardly wait to dive into what you've written, I'm certain I'm going to find the answers to my questions about how to do this. When I'm up and running, I'd like to learn more about your micro loan program. I'm familiar with organizations that do this and it is amazing to realize how such small amounts to us, change lives in other parts of the world. Thank you for all you do, I hope to have the chance to collaborate with you sometime in the future.

All the best to you,
Elizabeth

Thanks for being such an inspiration to so many!

Hi,Loes,

We haven't chatted for a while. I am now in course 2. I am learning to attach advertiser links in my website. I put in 1 or 2.

Now, no matter what I do, each time I copy and paste, I only get the code. Am I doing something wrong?

Could you look at my site?? I don't know how to proceed.

Thanks for being there!

Yours,
Sue

You are talking about the Adsense code? I have been struggling with the Adsense plugin too, I decided to delete it and went for the Header and footer scripts plugin, after that change it worked perfectly
Reply
sblasi999 Premium
Many people in chat are saying they do not bother with Adsense.
There are many plug ins for Adsense. I tried pretty links, etc.

I should install a header and footer scripts plug-in?

Hi Loes,

First off thank you for the warm welcome! I do have one question nobody seems able to answer for me. I've discovered that in the world of wordpress plugins there are a number of 'autoresponder' plugins, have you ever tried one of them or do you pay for an autoresponder service? Kyle's training never even mentioned them as far as I remember so I'm unsure whether to try one out or not. (not that I even have traffic to my site yet, just wondering for in the future)
Reply
Loes Premium
Hi Kyra, you're welcome, I have tried Mailpoet, but stopped it again, I wasn't comfortable with it, I have heard good reactions on Mailchimp, and I believe Kyle is advocating this too. Here you can find quite some MailChimp training. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/marimn/training
It's free up to 1000 email addresses, I have heard.

Hi, Loes.

I hope all is well. I wondered if you had any words of wisdom on adding images to my posts. I am in course 2, just learning to blog. We are learning to add images with the ADD MEDIA button.

But, I don't know how to get to the correct place. When I watch Kyle's video, he doesn't specify how he got to the page. When I hit the ADD MEDIA button, it takes me to a place that does NOT have attachment display settings. I don't see it.

Thank you in advance!

HI Loes.
I read your profile. Your life sounds very happy. I admire your English proficiency! I plan someday to have a website for English language learners. I taught this subject for years at a state college in Florida. This is my beginning of my online adventure. Better late than never, right?

My problem, in the WA is to make my website look correct, so I can begin to blog.

I am trying to learn Site Rubrix, . I think part of my problem is knowing what part of siterubrix to go in to edit my site.

Also, I share a personal loss on the ABOUT ME section, I am not sure if this is a good thing to do. my site is about candles and candle holders, ceremonies etc.

My content cuts off in the middle of my story, too.

I am in the beginning of the course: lesson 2. But, I don't know if I should change these things or just go on with the training. My site is not ready.

Here's my site: candleholderslargeandsmall.com

Thanks so much,

Sue

Hi Loes. I need some help. I'm stuck and I gave up. My major problem is Google.

I don't get analytics, I can't find my posts ranked on Google, I can't copy the tracking ID to my website because I'm using Yoast SEO, I get not hits for months now, and I don't know what else.

I can't move forward because I want to fix this first.

I read few training courses here. I even went online and I read few articles on how to set it up but I'm not getting any progress.

What do you think I should do more?

Many thanks,
Mona

Loes Premium
I have used Yoast, a couple of years ago, and I wasn't satisfied with it at all, so I went back to the SEO All in one. It's a Yoast thing, and I advise you to ask the community who is using Yoast and how to solve this, I have no idea how to fill in the Yoast data, because I am not using it.

HI, Loes. You've been so helpful, I hate to ask again. I have a big question - at least, that's how it seems to me. Okay, doing all that keyword research is great. What I'm wondering is when you (I think it was you - I'm sure it was, anyway), uh, mine all these keywords, I'm assuming you only want to use one keyword, basically, for the one article. What do you do with the other ones you've mined? I'm thinking that if the keywords are close in context, does that prevent you from using them? See, I'm really confused!
Reply
Loes Premium
Some of them I use in a next article, the ones who are too similar, I use as a tag, you can fill in tags on the right side of a post. when you do not see that feature, you have to go to the top of the post, screen options, there you can check the box

Listen wht happened.

I changed my theme and something happened to my wordpress font size and its display. The wordpress became so small that I tried so many tricks but could not restore back. Then I tried changing themes and nothing happen but it remained the same.

By mistake I installed Wordpress Database Reset Plugin and I reset it. After this everything are gone but thank God I have backup in my pc. Tw0 new posts are gone together with that.

After that I tried to open my getsweetsimplelife.com website and everything are gone. But, the font size and its display didn't change to normal even after that reset. It didn't restore to original size. Letters are still small than usual.

In order to restore back my wordpress site to original size, I didn't want to do it with the same wordpress because of its display size.

So I deleted the Domain that register with WA (getsweetsimplelife.com) from the site manager after I screenshot the important passwords of the page.

Then I build another website on a domain I owned with the same domain name (getsweetsimplelife.com)thinking that everything will change to normal and thinking that I can restore back to normal. But, I cannot access anymore.

How can I get back to the same wordpress now? I have all passwords with me. I have my backup file too.

Longing for you,

Loved your profile, Loes. I am an American, but my maiden name was Van Baale. The original name was Van Baalen, but my grandfather's birth certificate was misspelled. My father was 1/2 Dutch. I have a copy of the ship's manifest that my great grandparents came from Holland on for religious freedom. They were both married to other people and had a son named Willum (sorry, don't know correct spelling, but it is not William.) After they were both widowed, they married, and guess what they named their son....you guessed it. Willum. So my Dad 3 Uncle Wills. I have always had an affinity for Dutch things and would love to go to the Netherlands some day. Following you.

Dear Loes, Thank you for your comments on my blog!
Lists?? Everyday, my idea for articles...grows , as I seek, to bring all these, things out from my heart and my head...to paper and ink!
I am beginning, my web building, and will check out your resources, as deems, necessary!
Wonderful, to have with me on the journey!
Though, I've been to europa, twice...Milan, Italy, 8 years old, for six months, thus school!...and again, in 1972, for summer Art program, in Perguia, Italy,...I have Scandinavia, still on the Bucket List!!...That list, also, continues, to grow!! LOL
About the "generation, of children...". Huge! However, trying to find those, willing to help them, change, these days...seems to be a bigger problem! Too, much focus, on personal advancement, and the children suffer, with their cellphones, and computers, as their mentors!!!...excuse, me, but I'm sad, for their little souls>
Thank you, again, Loes! Being able to speak with others, that understand our core values, in life, is God send!

Mam you are a wonderful teacher and I'm enjoying your posts as well as your lessons. When this organization was created it was such a good idea to provide a place for someone like you to explain things they don't have time for. I get tons of e-mails daily from men who claim I will be making money as soon as tonight, it's like fresh air to read your posts and know there are people who is not trying to take advantage of poor people for their last dollar. I've had it with this and am telling them so. My email is beginning to be fewer. Maybe we're reaching someone's consence or something..

I just realized that one of your blogs veers towards the spiritual side of life. I love that topic as my first blog I'm on is about the evidence of life after death. I just had to tell you that. If you would like to check it out here is my site http://scienceandspirit.siterubix.com/
Let me know what you think
Thank you and take care

Hi Loes, I see you got the same message as me from fiyking, when you go on his profile there is nothing there at all so not sure who this person is and why he wants us to email him. I have just ignored it.

Did you find out if the person who did this only left the one message or has there been others or do you not know? xxx

Hi Loes, I see you have taken away your photo, I feel so rotten but I'm glad at the same time that I didn't just mark it as spam and bin it. I couldn't believe it when I opened it and I thought this is weird. I am going to pm you but I know you can't reply but don't worry about that. I just want to say what I think this is about. xxx

Hey now Miss. Lies,
Wow I see u have a full life. U r an inspiration.
I came across your response to Robert's Post on one should have a test site b4 going live. What drew me in your direction is wen u mentioned u are able to help four people at the same time.
Or did I missunderstand ?
If not that's why I wanted to follow u. A leader in the community of WA. I would enjoy gleaming your jewels of knowledge, if that's ok.
It seems to me u understand
The saying, if u help enough people get they want u will get what u want, is that true for u Miss Loes?


Blessed and highly favored
Your WA,


Rome

Have a great Sunday, Rome

Hallo Loes, ik probeer al een tijdje mijn "footer" te veranderen waar die copyright zin in staat. Maar ik kan er niet eens rechts op klikken met mijn muis en blijkbaar is dat nodig om de hele procedure te doen voor het veranderen van die zin. Wordt dit nog in de lessen uitgelegd ?

Hi Loes,

Thank you for your following me post. I am 57, english and live in UK, but spent 7 years in Beek, South Limberg whilst growing up, My father worked at AFCENT and Eurocontrol during this time, so have an affinity with both the people and some very rusty language skills. I know I never pronounce it right, but in my defense I am self taught (Badly, from the comments I have received over the years, but I definately am better than 99.9% of other english.)

Heres to your future

Phill

Hi Phill, you haven't heard me speak English yet :((( Luckily everything is in writing here:)
South of Limburg is the other end, I am living in the flattest part of the Netherlands, Friesland, up North.
Cheers back to your future as well:)

Loes

p.s. I am not often hitting the spam button, but I just did on the comment of annabeth22 on your profile

I have tried unsuccessfully to embed two images on my post, side by side for comparison purposes. All i manage is to have each of the image on its row. Anyone with an idea of how to do this....embed two images on the same row in a post?

I understand you did some training on this aspect?

Loes Premium
Yes, you can add a table for this. In this training I show how to add text next to an image, but you can add 2 images as well

Hello Loes, I getting a general consensus. TopAcheiver mentioned you and Boomergp08's might have an answer to my question concerning images. I noticed in Photoshop, there is a lot of exif data, keywords and other information when I download images from a paid source. So my question is, what is good practice, is it ok to remove that exif data and keywords, etc. that they add?
Reply
Loes Premium
I know what you are talking about, I have seen that data too. I decided back then not to use that image.
But as you say, you paid for it, I don't know the answer to that. I hope Robert can help you.

Hi Loes ... thank you for the follow. I'm in awe over what you have accomplished already here at WA. You must be the Dutch version of the Energizer Bunny.

Life needed more of my attention a while back. I tried to stay connected with the community, but my progress along the WA learning curve slowed way down.

I'm getting back up to speed now and it feels good to be back at it.

I wish you continued success with your growing online business.

Loes, I don't know if you are able to help me or not but I am using the theme Wise and the menu bar is covering up some of the photo I have at the top of my Become Wealthy site and I have been trying to either change the colour or to make it transparent or even smaller and just wondered if you had any idea on an easy way to do it. xxx
Reply
Loes Premium
I have tried to change the menu color into transparent in the Wise theme, but it doesn't respond to any color, normally, you have to put before the hex color code to make it transparent.
Here is the list:
https://gist.github.com/lopspower/03fb1cc0ac9f32ef38f4
Your menu color code is #26519E;
and it should become transparent when you added 2 numbers or characters of the list to the hex code
0% #0026519E; or this 100% #FF26519E; and anything in between.
I tried to change it into another color, but it's stuck in blue.
I can't get it to work Cheryl

I advise you to open a test website with the wise theme and play around with this numbers in the CSS style sheet

Chezbrown Premium
Thank you so much Loes for trying for me and I did open a test website for that reason and I will do and let you know if I get anything to work. xxx

I have read not all browsers response to the transparency code, you can try out other browsers, but when someone comes to your website with an unresponsive browser, it will still show them the blue menu bar

Ok thanks Loes, I might just change the image instead. xxx

Hello again Loes, I have a question and thought of you because of the article you have on free images. I went through a lot of them but nothing I could find really worked for me and my niche. I'm a cook and baker so my web is focused on kitchen tools, utensils and gadgets. I need to get some photo content in. I am signed up as a Amazon seller. Is there a way to download products of there's and upload to my pages and link back to them? I'm also affiliate for Target and Walmart so I can promote kitchen appliances. Your advice and input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

Loes Premium
Hi Richard, some, so not the most, affiliated companies are allowing advertisers to use the images for promoting, it´s sometimes written in the terms of service, and when it´s not there, I would ask them via email if you are allowed to take screenshots of the products.

Loes, thank you so so much for being willing to allow newbies such as myself visit your sites. I am at the point of choosing a niche but could not for the life of me imagine what WA sites looked like! I love your sites, they are so bright and engaging.

I'm thinking of going with a 'gadget' themed niche as I've always been known as the "gadget girl". Do you mind if I ask what you think of that idea? I'm thinking along the lines of a site where each week I review a different gadget, (say safety tools for getting out of a car in an emergency, or reflective vests for dogs, or even some gadgets that help with anxiety or depression?)

I really would value any input you have as I'm stuck at this point and really want to move forward onto the next trainings after creating my site.

Many thanks again and well done on your success in all areas of your life, not just WA!
Ann

Hi , I am just wondering what the purpose of following others and being followed is ? I am totally new to internet money making and marketing , website building etc .
What I do know is I am pretty intelligent , and if help and others really showing me how to do this is available in depth , then I will do what needs to be done .
Please answer the question in the 1st paragraph and share all the helpful info and encouragement you have for me .
Thank you much ,
Brett

You only get notification of the works of others when you are following them, also others only get email notifications about your work when they are following you. So to get a larger public for any blog, question or training at WA and more chances for reactions on it, you are better off with more followers.

That's the same on social media, the more followers, the more people see what you share, and the more chances you have they share it with their followers.

Hope this helps
