About Nathaniell
Joined June 2010
I started internet marketing while living in China. The idea was that I could make American money while in China, and live like a king. 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.

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
nathaniell Premium Plus
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.


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.

Hello Nathaniell, I was consulting with my husband, discussing the option of the premium membership, as the money I would put on is his after all. Here some of the questions I have:
I don't see the option of importing my existing website, I am worried I would lose its content.
Does the membership have a cancellation option?
If yes, would I lose my website if so?
nathaniell Premium Plus
If you purchase a domain and build a website using WA hosting, you own the domain and the content! If at some point you cancel, you can still retain all this stuff.

The domain can stay with WA as your registrar, and you can access it at any time using your regular login. Go to SiteDomains to manage it there, just like any other domain registrar. You are also free to move the domain to a new registrar if you want, but will then be subject to their fees like SSL fees, Privacy Fees, and extra renewal fees.


As for the content, you'll need to move that to another host no matter what if you cancel. Since WA will not longer be your host, you can choose one of the many other choices for hosts out there. Prices range from $10 - $250/month depending on how many websites you have and what level of service you choose.

A WordPress optimized, managed host, such as WA will probably cost between $25 - $50 for a single website, and may limit the amount of traffic you're allowed to have on that plan. A multi-site hosting plan could cost $100/more per month depending on your traffic levels.

They also have cheaper hosts like Bluehost or Hostgator, but your "shared" hosting will be quite limited in my experience, and they often encourage your to upgrade each time you run into speed issues or crashing servers due to traffic spikes (again, in my own experience).

In regards to the question about moving your existing website here.

If you want to move your domain to WA, you can do it like this: If you want to move a website, then WA support can do it for you. Contact SiteSupport and they can help you from there: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Moving a "domain" and a "website" to Wealthy Affiliate are two different things.

If you want to move BOTH your website and your domain, do them at separate times. It doesn't matter which order, but just do one at a time or things will get a little confusing!

Let me know if you need further explanation! Once we get over this hump of getting started, your work will be less technical, and more focused on research/writing :)

I hope you're having a relaxing day :)
Thank you for the thorough explanation. Let me digest it well then I might come back to you.
My hosting is siteground. You still can migrate from them right?
nathaniell Premium Plus
Yes, you shouldn't have any issues transferring from SiteGround!

Hi Nathaniell, Thanks for the introduction. I’m excited to get my affiliate business going. I’m thinking of doing working with day trading classes, from there stock picking sites perhaps brokers then perhaps moving to real estate classes and or precious metals. Would your experience be able to tell me if this would be a good idea or not? Is there anything I need that I might need to know before I went into this direction? Would you recommend using paid advertising in this space?

Thanks, Ted

Great ideas Ted!

Any niche can make money so it's rarely a matter of which niche is best, and more often a matter of which niche is most interesting to you. Especially as a beginner, you'll run into some frustrating times with your business, and having a personal interest in your niche will help you maintain consistent work over a longer period of time.

The best question to ask yourself is, which topic you'd be most interested in researching?

My site uses a mix of display ads and affiliate links to make money.

For display ads, I use MediaVine, but there are many other networks out there You can also just stick with regular Adsense, and select where each individual ad-unit goes, but you cannot select specific ads.

Ads can make great money, but you need loads of traffic. The upside is that you don't have to "advertise" anything. Affiliate marketing makes more money with less traffic, but you have to be precise in what you review and try to rank for. This is why Kyle will have you focus on product reviews in the training. They are very powerful for making money, and tend to convert really well.

Both methods are good for making money, and both methods are taught here in Wealthy Affiliate!

PS. I hope you enjoy your weekend, Ted!
