Authoring & Writing Content

Hi everyone,

I made a blog post on gifts and am wondering if I should index it if there's about 20 affiliate links on it?

If i do, will there be a ranking proble

Every post should be indexed, how it will be ranked by Google will be a different story. If you have 3000+ words in that post, you could still rank very well. If you don't have a lot of words in that post, you'll most likely won't rank highly for it and you'll just use that post as a "money page" where you will just refer your readers to.

Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering if any of you have had this error come up before when you were trying to activate the Jetpack plugin on your wordpress website?

Hi Megan, Jetpack is banned from WA it was causing issues.

I notice the error message said "wordpress dot com". Are you using the free siterubix domain, or do you have your own domain?

SSL certificates cannot be used with the free Siterubix sites, only with an owned domain.

As Marion says, contact site support,

thank you for your response

You're welcome. I wend back to edit it with further info, while you were replying...lol...I hope it helps. ~Jude

Hi Jude,

JetPack is developed by Automattic, the people who run wordpress dot com. It connects to wordpress dot com's servers in order to access some of its features.

Thanks Marion.

Carson explains as part of the thread in this post. Banned!

Thank you

Contact Site Support and ask if they will allow Jetpack. As far as I know it's been banned because it slows down your website's loading speed. When I tried it on a test website it added two full seconds to the load time.

Thanks Marion

Authoring & Writing Content

HI everyone,

I came across an article yesterday that I was really taken by and resonates with the content on my website. I have asked the author permission to repost it

I do not recommend copying and pasting the entire post.

You can place quotation marks around an extract of few lines of relevant text, then state to your readers:

To read the full post, visit: link to external site. Make sure you have the link open in a new window.

If it is not too long, you can consider pasting the text on a blank background image and giving credit to the author either within the image or under the pasted content. Google will not read the words as duplicate because it will see an image. But this only works for shorter pieces of content. ~Jude

Thanks for letting me know.

Citations are allowed. You are using a back link so that makes it even better. There is nothing wrong in making a citation.

Thanks for your reply. Does this mean I have to add " quotations around the content? Or as long as I credit them at the end? Should I credit them at the beginning also somehow? Thank you

Any one works. The fact that you gave credit to the original author. It's common in writing. I have seen a lot of websites doing that

i would write it as a review and copy and paste link.

HI everyone, so in the comments section where we request comments from other WA members we can see who posted the website. I commented on one but now all I can see is there web

Hello, Megan! I went to check and it’s true. I don’t’ know either how to find that members username. Wait for a while to see if somebody else has a more elegant way to do it, but if no answer appears, you could go to his/her site (not using SiteComment but manually typing it) and go to the same article and leave a comment and say: “Hey, please don’t approve this comment, I want to contact you because I have a question about your website. I can’t find your username inside WA, so this is mine ___. Please send me a PM. Thanks” :)

Thanks so much for the suggestion. :)

You’re most welcome! It’s not elegant, but it may work! :)

Search Engine Optimization

Hi, I was wondering if I had my affiliate discloser in a header and footer plugin and had it before all my articles content if that would mess with optimizing my keywords in my

Hi Megan. I wouldn't put an affiliate disclosure in my header. It would be redundant on each page and might screw with seo in my opinion. Maybe at most, putting it in a sidebar widget is better. Mine is a link in the footer to the disclosure page. Where did you see to put it in the footer and header anyway?

Hey Lev, I have seen on other people's websites with them having a disclosure before their content. Also before actual links. And with Amazon I know they say to have it somewhere before the affiliate links not after. So it in my footer wouldn't work. However I can't remember if that rule was solid and had to be applied with every affiliate website.

Oh alright, sounds like an Amazon thing. Might be best to read the exact conventions from the Amazon Associates faq page or their customer support just to be up to date. Good luck

Are you an Amazon Affiliate yourself?

Not at the moment. I'm promoting other networks programs along with WA. For the disclosure you might want to make the text into a small image so it doesn't get picked up for seo. Just an idea.

Ok, good idea thanks.

Your affiliate disclosure is for your human readers not the search engines. https://marionblackonline.com/affiliate-disclosures/
