Hi, it's great to meet you, my name is Marion and I live in Adelaide Australia.

Please visit my website and my YouTube channel, I've got lots of goodies for you.

Everyone should have a "main hustle" and a "side hustle". My main hustle is affiliate marketing. My side hustle is creating video courses. "The Plan" is to make my side hustle my main hustle.

If you don't like your "main hustle" then develop your "side hustle" to the point where it can become your "main hustle" and ditch your job.

I love my main hustle but I love my side hustle more.

I'm an entrepreneur. I launched my first "real" business - with paid advertising in the local newspaper - over 50 years ago when I was a teenager. I've always embodied that entrepreneurial spirit. I've had lots of startups since then. Some successful, some not quite. But I'll never give up. They've all been part of the learning experience.

I've been messing around with computers for more than 30 years. I started programming on a Commodore 64 (hands up if you remember them). Then I switched to PCs.

Using a dial-up internet connection I created my first website using HTML in 2002 to promote my software programs. The website is still in existence but it's not mobile-friendly and I just keep it for nostalgic reasons. I don't write programs/apps anymore.

These days I get a buzz from helping my WA friends. I have created lots of tutorials and videos to answer questions so please check out my training section. Click the blue 'View MarionBlack's Training' button on the bottom-right of this page. Or go to https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/training-by-marion-black-sorted for the cataloged version.

If YOU need any extra help just leave a message in the comments section below. I'm always happy to respond. If I don't know the answer to your question then I'll point you in the right direction.

So awesome Marion, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Since adding the "s" to my HTTP I didn't realize I needed to add all new verification codes to my SEO. I want to thank you for your very easy to follow instructions, saved me a ton of time! I do have one question, it shows on my search console, the indexing for the smartphone is still not complete. Am I missing something?

Again, thank you for all your great training :)

Best,
Meherbani

I don't know what you could be missing Meherbani. Did you submit a sitemap to Google Search Console?

I got rejected once by Amazon affiliate program despite the fact that I made a comission of 4.1 USD from a 82 dollar necklace order. They stated that my website is not really developed and that my content is lacking. I am trying to tap on the power of the social media,youtube, and even my own blog. I am not sure what has gone wrong and don't really understand Amazon's bottom limit. Could you enlighten me on this? Thank you.

Hi Marion.
I was approved by the Adsense team last month. In my Wordpress area, I clicked on Appearance, Widgets then dragged a new text box to the right hand side. Then pasted the Adsense code into the box and saved.

Since then my website has not displayed any ads and I wonder which steps I have left out?

I would appreciate your guidance.

Regards to you.

Roy

It takes time for Google to start serving up the ads. It may be an hour or even a day or two. Give me a link to your website so I can take a look at the code.

Hi Marion. I assume that you need my website username and password to login through the Site Manager?

No, I don't need to log in, just the url for your home page. I can check the code in my browser.

My website is:
panicattackcured.com

Thanks Marion

That's the code to get page level ads (don't ask, it's complicated). Go to Adsense and create a new ad. Get the code for the new ad and paste it into the text widget instead of the code that's there now. Remind me to have a look at your website tomorrow to see if the ad shows up.

Thanks Marion. I'll let you know how what happens.

Hi Marion

I revisited the email instructions from Adsense and pasted new code into my text widget. Have a look at the result:
panicattackcured.com

A couple of questions...
1.The ad is slightly positioned to the right and consequently, some of the text is missing. I have tried two size ads but this has not changed.
2. When the site is loaded on my desktop, the ad appears on the right-hand side, under all of my posts and archives. Is he best position?
When loaded on my mobile phone, it is the very last item that a user sees (if they bother scrolling this far!)

I would appreciate your comments.

Thanks, Marion.

I suggest you go back to Adsense and create a new ad. This time choose Responsive for the size and they will then only send ads which fit into the available space.

The best place to put Adsense ads is so that at least half of it is above the fold. They count impressions when at least 50% is visible for one continuous second.
