I started internet marketing while living in China. The idea was that I could make American money while in China, and arbitrage my lifestyle. I could make money in different time zones and, and essentially have cash flow 24/7. I didn't realize then how well it would work. 10 years later, I'm still doing this affiliate blogging thing, and active inside the Wealthy Affiliate community helping others do the same!

There's still a lot I don't know about affiliate marketing, but I can say that I've achieved all the goals I set, and have surpassed them way beyond what I thought possible. I truly believe that anyone can "make it" in this space and that any website can make money if you put in consistent work and follow through.

Good Morning Nathaniell,
I am in the section of writing content for my first site (not siterubix) I am probably moving slower through the training I'm not worried about the computer or wordpress. Wordpress is really a great system but should I not be so concerned with content so much? I am very happy with the content am putting together. Also last question is there any chance any chance at all that there will ever be to many affiliate marketers? its like why isn't everyone doing this? I hope you are doing well. Thank you!!

In general, the more content you add, the better. Especially in the beginning. Google doesn't really know what to think of a brand new website, so the more data you feed it (words on the page), the more it understands what your website is about, and you'll naturally gain more rankings at a faster pace. In the beginning, it's really tough to have a strong content publishing schedule. You've got to balance a job, family, Wealthy Affiliate training, learning WordPress....AND publish content?! That's a lot!

On top of that, it probably hard to think of ideas and get at least 1000 words per article.

You can do it though. Aim for small, achievable goals. Focus on publishing just one article per week. Work on writing 20-30 minutes a day, and you can definitely push out one article per week.

Myself? These days I add content several times a week. 2-3 times per week is a minimum for me. I try to publish every day, or even 10 times per week.

That sounds crazy, but I outsource a lot now, so I have help. In the beginning, you definitely don't have to publish that much if you don't have the time or money. I just wanted to give you a picture of what I'm doing with my own business.

More content = more chances to get found. But be sure to not just speed through it. Quality counts! PS. With so many people choosing to shop online these days, I don't foresee there being any issues with overcrowding. However, providing quality content and quality products is the best way to ensure you stay in the industry long-term.

Hi Nathaniell,
I was hoping you could answer this question. In the 2nd part of the 2nd module (at 4:39) the video shows the site content section and says go to siterubix but the site rubix option menu is already on the screen my question is how to I get to site rubix for the purpose of writing an article (first one I ever write) please advise. Thank you.

Hi Nathaniell

I have had a problem with uploading feature images on WordPress, when I do it crops it to a smaller size so it doesn't looking appealing on my home page. I tried changing the theme twice which didn't seem to help and have looked around on google if anyone has a similar problem and cant seem to get any help there either.

I hoped you might have had some experience in this and could give me a little insight on what i should do?

Thanks a million.

Each theme is different, so it's hard to say exactly what's going on without looking at it. Usually, featured images are landscape style, so try to upload your images according to the general shape of the featured image spot.

You may have to create a custom image if the shape is a square, since most images don't come in those dimensions.

Hi Nathananiel, I have been busy and haven't really been in the group, but with my website I aam completely at a loss of how to implement my branding and icons and navigation side tabs widget things. I dont know how to do it and I also feel confused about Post and Pages

Hi Lorraine,

Here's the short version of Pages VS Posts explained: Here's the long version:

When publishing "content" AKA "articles" on your website, you should publish the majority as posts. Pages is more for legal stuff like privacy policy and affiliate disclosure, as well as landing pages for email signups that you may want to put in your menu bar.

However, in reality, it doesn't matter *that* much. The main advantage of posts is that they come with categories and tags, which helps Google discover more of your content. It also helps with search engine optimization.

How?

Each category and tag you add gives Google an indication of what your site is about. If your site is called "Best Pizza Recipes", then you have the categories:

pizza dough recipes
pizza sauce recipes
dessert pizza recipes

Google will understand that your site is about pizza recipes.

Then if you have tags like:

weird pizza toppings
gluten free pizza toppings
keto pizza toppings
kids pizza toppings

Google will further understand that your site is about some very specific pizza recipes!

However, if you have the same title website, but categories like

top recipes for big margins
best commercial pizza ovens
local pizza app creator

Then Google will understand your website is about making pizza recipes for a commercial business. Of course, your content will reflect that as well, but all those tags and categories create internal links which also helps Google understand the meaning of your content.

Regardless, Google still sees words on a page, and doesn't distinguish between a page and a post created by WordPress. The main difference lies in the options you have in the back end of WordPress.

Hi Nathaniell! If you had, say, $500 or $1000 to invest into one of your sites to help drive more quality traffic, where would you invest the money? Would you hire a writer to research and write posts? If so, would you use the sites like Fiverr.com, or Onlinejobs.ph with inexpensive Filipino writers, or something like Textbroker.com ? Or would you have someone build another site to start an additional stream of income? Or what about paid advertising on Bing ? I guess I should just leave the question open-ended, but I wanted to throw out a few things I thought may be beneficial.

Thanks for any input you may have!

I'd hire someone on UpWork for .03 to .06 per word to get as many articles as possible. More articles = more traffic.

If you want to put in the work, get a slightly cheaper writer and do the images/videos yourself. If you want it completely hands-off, then get someone a little more expensive, and have them format/upload/add images directly into WordPress.

I don't mess around with cheap content farms like Textbroker any more. Not worth the hassle of editing the content myself.
