Hi, you all my friends. I have a problem. Every about one or two months I have to remake my posts, all of them, which takes a very long time. I am still not sure if even the newest version is a good post.
I would very much appreciate if one of you, more experienced members would have a look at one post and let me know what you think of it.
Please tell me the truth, what should I change or what is wrong, is it boring or whatever.
Not a comment but an answer to this post.
It just seems my posts don't get ranked in google.
Please give me a hand.
I can do you a favor too if you tell me what.

This is my newest post. I wrote 2371 words and with this, it is by far the longest post with the same keyword.


Thanks a lot Stefan

Your post is already perfect. Actually, you should never waste your time to redo your old posts. Instead, you can write same kind of post by targeting new keywords. It is always better to have more posts because more posts you have with different keywords, more traffic you gonna get. So, don't waste your time redoing the old posts, that will only waste your time, but won't give you good results. Also, don't write lengthy posts. If your posts have around 700 to 1000 words, that is already enough. Save your time to write more new contents. On top of that, how much we want to be perfect, there will be always someone who finds out something bad within our content. So, it is better just keep on adding new contents on our website by targeting new keywords because that leads to more traffic in our website and more conversions and more money.
Good Luck!
lumfan Premium
Thanks, ill remember that.
Good luck to you too

Hi there Stefan, interesting...you are the same age, have moved to Asia in 2008, like me,but I am in the Philippines, and you have a 7 year old daughter, mine is 8. I also spend 2 years in Bern,then its a very long story...So anyway, thanks for following! I will of course follow you back! How is your website coming along?
ttabor Premium
Hi Stefan, nice meeting you here. Thanks for connecting. We live in Melbourne, Australia. My passion is Nutritional Medicine. If you are thinking more like creating health retreat it's brilliant idea. Wellness Tourism is going to be the greatest proposition in coming years. With aging and more affluent world population looking for solutions to stay healthier and looking younger for longer without plastic surgeon intervention will only increase in popularity.
Anyway it would be great to keep in touch with you and exchange ideas.
Please PM me if you prefer and let me know in a bit more detail what's your plans. Thank you.

Hello Stefan and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 370+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Robert-A
I feel very comfortable to be able to work with kind and helping people like you.
I will check your blogs in time
Thanks for the follow and have a great day.

Maybe if you have some spare time, you could give me some advice on my site about Thailand

see you Stefan
Robert-A Premium
There are other members here (expats - US, Uk,Canada etc) who work/live in Thailand. As I am completely ignorant about the country it would be best to ask around.
rocrocha Premium
Hello Stefan Vogt: You are adventurous! Though the story is dark, check-out "The Apprentice Ship of Duffy Kravitz" starring a young Richard Dryfus. As an electrician, you practice the King of the Trades. Hope the resort plans work out! You honor me with the follow! May Jesus be with you!
HelenpDoyle Premium
Stefan, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I checked out your sites but couldn't see anything about a nature resort, fishing or guesthouses!

I think Thailand is the only Asian country I would like to visit. After reading your weather report I would come in the not so hot season.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Hi Stefan and thanks so much for adding me to your network. It's a pleasure to meet and work with you here at WA. You have definitely come to the right place. I couldn't recommend WA more. The amount of training and the super helpful and caring community here are second to none. Let me know if I can ever lend a hand. Hopefully one day I can visit your lake and do some fishing. Best of luck in all that you do.

Hey Stefan,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Stefan and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

lumfan Premium
I'm good thank you Kyle
I got a lot of work to do, to get content to all my posts and pages. so at the moment I do't really have time to learn more, but I will get premium for sure once I am out of work

Thank's Kyle and have a great time

Kyle Premium
No problem Stefan, wonderful to have you here at WA and I really do look forward to working with you! Get in touch with me if you ever need anything :)

Today March 21st, 2017. I personally come over to your special dashboard to congratulate on becoming WA Members, new or existing, nevermind.

FC Basel, the Football Club :). Once, I like the way Swiss Ex-footballer, Marc Hottiger, play his football.

My Special Appreciation Message for your time following me back and also Support Message as your networking for you to continue the good work here at WA. This kind of my personal activity is also way for me knowing my networking bio and profile briefly. ALL THE BEST AND TO YOUR SUCCESS! :)

Hey stefan,
got your comment and if you want to add a widget, simply go to the back office of your wordpress website and click on appearance and then widgets. There are plenty of widgets there you can add and if the widget you want is not there, then search for a plugin widget that you want and install it.
My advise for you is to upgrade to premium and get your own domain it will be much easier to learn and for your website to rank quickly in google.
All the very best.
lumfan Premium
thank's , i got that, but what I don't get is how to get a WA widget for example on one of my pages or posts, not on the website sidebar. also these blue written active links
Garyrapz Premium
those are not WA Widgets but banners, you can download them from the WA affiliate program. Add any banner to your wordpress and insert your affiliate link in them. And for those blue links, just select any word you've typed in your wordpress and click on insert link which is at the top.
Garyrapz Premium
Again Stefan, I would suggest you to upgrade to premium, it will be much easier and faster for you to learn. All the best
lumfan Premium
I don't know why but my visa card don't work and time is running out. I applied pay pal but that gets approved in a few days. So I might just save 19$ and sign in in a month. I have a last chance tomorrow morning at the bank but therthere I have to speak Thai and that is sometimes not easy
Thanks and all the best to you, maybe we can't talk anymore tomorrow, we'll see.
lumfan Premium
Great, the trick with the links I found out, tomorrow I'll try what I think you mean to do with the banners
Thanks a lot Greyrapz
Kyle Premium
Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Stefan? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)
lumfan Premium
Very satesfied, thanks
One more day and learned a lot again
Maybe I'll have to stay starter for another month till I get my visa problems figured out

Have nice day Kyle and see ya
Kyle Premium
Sure, at your own pace Stefan and what works to be the best for you. :)
Kyle Premium
Stefan, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Stefan.
lumfan Premium
Hi thanks
The program is great, I learned a lot I never was told and think many website amateurs don't know
If you could tell me how to get a active ad on fb, IdI'd be happy to post it so I might get some income from there already

All the best Stefan
Kyle Premium
We have LOTS of Facebook Ads training within your Premium membership, but it definitely shoudl not be the starting point for your business.

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 Stefan. :)
lumfan Premium
thank's Kyle
I am working on my websites, got two open already
the step now i'm on is making subtitles , I got them for one site
I'm working hard but inspiration needs a little time to come up with 60 texts with content takes some time
I have some banners on my website already, they work ok so I can already sell wa but most followers I have on fb and if I promote aw there they will get in through other peoples ads and I don't get my share
never mind, I go on with the program
have a nice day stefan
Kyle Premium
Sounds like you are making some good progress and yeah, you can promote banners and your affiliate links on Facebook and get credit for the sales.

I look forward to working with you and if you need anything else moving forward let me know. :)
DeRaj Premium
Just thought I would check in and see how things are going with you! I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the community.

I hope you are enjoying the training and making some wonderful progress! Please do touch base with me if you ever need a hand with anything or are feeling stuck, I am here to help. :)

thanks a lot for your interest
I really like to know what is wrong with my pic upload on website
I made a website before with word press and had no problems with the same pics
DeRaj Premium
Sorry for such a late reply. I don't know why I didn't see your comment before. So, till now you have already solved your problem or still struggling with that? If you are still struggling with that, you can explain me in detail what message you get or what happen when you try to upload the picture. Different WordPress theme work differently. So, it may be problem in your theme as well. Anyway, if you can explain me in detail, then I can provide you additional help on that. If you can't contact me here due to free membership restriction, then even you can contact me by sending message through my FB which is this one:- https://www.facebook.com/rajde029
Good Luck!

Thank you Stefan for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you intend on becoming a Premium member one of the many great perks you will have is the unlimited FREE access to the WA Keyword Research Tool. This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords.

To learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link.

Aloha Stefan,
Welcome to WA!
I've been here six months now. In that time, I've learned a lot and created two websites that are getting traffic. One is even making me enough to pay for my membership here at WA!

Kyle & Carson have put together an awesome program here and it's made very strong by engaging the collective wisdom of the WA community.

It takes time and effort, but results do come if you stick with it.
lumfan Premium
aloha Joe
thanks for motivating me
It's my second day now and I accomplished all tasks I can being a non premium
I really can't afford to get premium at the moment
how do I go on
Where do I put "key words" and how do I activate them?
How do I sell things, make ads?
joekeriii Premium
I suggest you continue with the training in the Certification Course. You will still have access to most of the training as a free member. How to do key-word research and include them in your posts is all covered in the Certification Course.
lumfan Premium
can'wait till my website goes online
I found out a lot more today
even got my first affiliate
DeRaj Premium
I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
