About Myrtlebeach
Joined April 2019
Hello everyone and thank you for such a great welcome. I am probably a little older than most of you and I am not so great with all the technical stuff, but I got a fire in me to get this going and I will spend every minute I can, while avoiding the grand kids, working on content and learning all I can.
I do appreciate that some of you have offered to answer my questions. Thanks for that. I do like reading the comments so much under the lessons and videos that I have ended up reading more there than the actual training, but I'm still learning so much. I guess I better try and stick with the training and trying to find a niche, so I can start on my website. Take care all

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year. You'll be a happy camper by then.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area below each lesson. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Hi Keith, you can start getting results in 4-6 months. I like to say a year because that's when things really start heating up following the growth in your Blog Posts that head to higher Google Rankings.

I wish you all the best.

Okay, I think maybe I'm confused now...lol...surprise surprise.
I think I might need something explained to me, if anyone would be so kind?
I wonder if I should be ignoring some of the add on content, such as ones in some of the comments or ones that seem to be too far ahead of where I'm at. What I mean is this, I just started reading a blog that was posted about WordPress maintenance site use and it was easy at first to see how that would help me, that is until it actually got to how to do it.
There at the beginning he says that it would be helpful for Brand new sites to have an Under Construction page so anyone coming to the site would see it and understand why there's nothing there, but I'm confused as to how anyone would even find it seeing as I don't have any content up yet and no one probably would just happen to find it, right? Which also brings me to my second confused state..
At the beginning of starting the website process Kyle shows in the training to click on "Publish" at one point. Why would we do that before there's anything there to see? If there's no content and if a search engine looked at it, since it would be "Published" now, wouldn't that hurt the site because there would be nothing to see, or am I thinking to much at this point. Over thinking has been a problem of mine for quite some time...lol
Thanks for any help anyone has for me.

Hi Keith,

Glad to see that you took the plunge to Premium, I think you will find it to be a very wise decision. Even though the material you read in some of the blogs posted on the platform here may seem over your head.

I personally think it is good to read them, some of the information may not make sense now but when you get to the point where it does make sense. I think you will find that it will click them and you’ll realize what the message was that they were conveying.

If it is that confusing for you then, by all means, stop reading it maybe bookmark it for later reading, the great thing about this platform it is self-paced. So if it takes you 10 minutes to understand some aspect being taught by someone or if it takes 4 hours.

So what :-D

Just as long as you learn it, that’s the important part!!

Now using the under construction plugin or maintenance plugin I say why use it. Unless you are doing things to a website that you don’t want people to see, the more people see your material you have on it (even if it is only 3 blogs) the more likely they will want to come back again.

The name of the game here is to build traffic to your website if you post an under construction page as the only material people can see what is going to bring them back to your site?

Until your site is indexed (that is fancy terminology saying Google is aware that your website is there), chances are you will not get any traffic to your site, and I tell every one of my mentees.

Until you have 30 to 40 pages posted on your site and everything is indexed you should worry about nothing except adding more content (that is what draws in the traffic and makes you the money) and getting it indexed (there are ways of getting all material you post indexed in minutes).

Once you get 30 blogs posted then you should have a slight idea as to which way or how you are going to be taking your site. That is the time to start thinking about the navigation of the site, the looks of the site, and the plugins and extras that you will implement in the future (your vision of what you are trying to build).

To me, I think too many people worry about what their site looks like before they even get traffic. It’s like trying to stand walls in a new home before you pour the slab, it doesn’t work out too well!

Then when they hit the 6-month mark they wonder why they are not making any money.

I am sort of at a loss on the comment about the training could you tell me which training lesson this happens in so I can go back and watch it then comment on it for you.

It’s been a while since I did the training,

Oh and one final note thanks for the follow it is greatly appreciated and I gladly returned the follow as well – Thank You

Hey Calvin,
That is some great information and a big help. You answered my questions, especially the one about publishing it even though it's "Empty" kinda!

I didn't understand how long and how much material needs to be there before we ever need to worry about being noticed or indexed by any search engines. I was worried about not having links, affiliate links, on there before I put up too much content.

I guess I was worried that if people were to start reading my stuff and the promotion of things I am writing about and there's nowhere to get them from my site, that they'd go elsewhere and not come back.

Like I said, I'm getting ahead of myself. You really helped me to understand that and what I'm doing now when I read a comment I don't really understand what it's referring to, I go find out all I can about it and then go back and finish the comment I was reading.

..thanks again,
Keith

Thank you Lisa,
It's going to take a day or so before I can get back to work. I'm babysitting my grandkids all day again today and the almost 2 year old won't give me a break...lol
I will start having lots of time here soon and that's when I will do as much as humanly possible to get up and running.
We moved from Ohio to Myrtle Beach to help out with the grandkids for awhile and we're all living together for a few more months.
As soon as we're back in our own place I will have a whole lot more time.
Thanks for the help

Thank you Karin, I do appreciate all the help everyone is offering. I know I will be needing it soon. I'm just kind of stuck without any time to myself until I get away from the little grandkids. Not that I want to get away from them...lol...I really don't. That's why we moved 600 miles to be with them and be here while they grow up. It's just really hard to get anything done right now.
I am doing some, just not enough...
Thanks again

Well I have now gone premium and am really excited about moving forward. I do have a niche, actually two of them I want to work on. One I got from my kids when they went shopping for the grandkids and went to a few different stores here at the beach and every store was out of all the merchandise that was related to what they were there to get and that gave me an idea.
If everyone ran out of the products locally that means people have to go online to find the stuff. Hmm, that sounds like something I want to promote, right? Why not. I have been bringing up the topic at stores when in line checking out and the cashier's all seem to have kids and grandkids that are into this new(ER) stuff that my grandkids have been watching and wanting us to by for them. I will give that a shot, plus one of my hobbies I think I will go with as well, so I better get to figuring out how to provide content and put it up.
I would say stuck right here, but I'm going to use the rest of the time I have this week to train and see what I need to do from here on out.
Thank you Kyle and everyone else for letting me know I can ask for help and get it when I need it.
Have a great week everyone.

Hi Zed,
Will definitely do that a little later today. As soon as we get the little one down for her nap maybe...lol
I do appreciate that. I am pretty lost on how and what to put in a new website even if I know a niche or two I wanna go with.
I guess I need to keep research the topics and learn as much as possible, right?
I'll go over and check your stuff out. Thank you again.

Hello Zed,
I am looking for where to go to look at your web pages but when I go to where I think I'm on your profile page, I can't find a list k at the bottom right corner or any corner for that matter. I'm thinking maybe it's because I'm still trying to do all this on my phone with Android and not on my laptop.
I'm going to get the sound fixed tonight I hope and try the laptop and see if I can find the link there.
Thanks again,
Keith

I hope this goes through. I've tried to ask questions before and to reply to people here that have either sent me a message or comment, or that I have read something that really enlightened me to how this is going to work. Before I write too much back to you, I'm going to see if it allows me to write to you or anyone else. Thanks for the comment...

Hi,
You can write to people here and leave messages for them,
I received your message just fine.
If you go to the top of your profile , there is a section there where you can ask questions about anything you need to know within WA. After each lesson in the training there is also a section where you can ask questions or get help.

All the Best

I am now able to write, reply and comment, but after the first or initial 7 days I was no longer able to do that unless I went premium. Since I was at the hospital for the whole period when starting out, Kyle was nice enough to give me another 7 days, so I'm going strong now. Thank you Louise. I do appreciate the help and insight. I am trying to get as much training done as I can. I have a one year, almost two years old granddaughter daughter that demands so much attention that it's a little hard to devote as much time as I want to, but I am still able to keep pushing forward.
Take care,
Keith

Hi Keith, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I am here to help you along your journey and to make sure you get the most out of this great educational platform.

The first thing I recommend you to do is to start your Online Entrepreneur Certification Course (Level 1).

Just click on this link to start your first lesson. It's completely free! The course will help you understand how affiliate marketing works and show you step by step how to set up the foundation for your online business.

If you have any questions or need a feedback on your site, feel free to leave me a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/stefanc or by private message if you are a premium member.

You can also ask questions in the community through the live chat or in the Getting started classroom. People here are super helpful, and will probably answer your questions within a minute or less.


★ Access your bonuses and get a significant discount ★

If you join the premium membership within the first 7 days, you'll get some cool bonuses:

☆Bonus 1 - get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your premium membership.

☆Bonus 2 - 1-on-1 support from me - You can private message me with questions and ask for feedback on your website and business!

☆Bonus 3 - 4 Week LIVE Niche Case Study Series

Watch a professional internet marketer build a live niche website in real time! All steps are thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. The total length of the videos is 4+ hours.

You can easily get overwhelmed with so much information here, so I highly recommend you start slowly with the first lesson and take one step at a time.

Remember, this is a long-term project, and so there is no need to rush things at this time.

I wish you great success, and I hope you enjoy the journey!


Best,
Stefan
