The idea that 10% of Wealthy Affiliate members are successful is a silly bit of misinformation that gets passed around, so I figured I'd write a blog post about it, and share my thoughts. Rather than get to clever and wordy about it, let's just jump in.1. Wealthy Affiliate doesn't track your earnings because they cannotI participate in about 50+ affiliate programs. ONE of them is Wealthy Affiliate. I've posted many blog posts over the years highlighting my earnings outside of Wealthy Affiliate,

There Are Unlimited Keywords Out ThereThe amount of opportunity online is unlimited. Whatever exists right now, there will be more in the future. People search for just about everything online right now, but in the near future, it will probably be more.Just yesterday I wanted to highlight some text on a page, but I wanted a specific kind of yellow - highlighter yellow. So I searched "highlighter yellow color code". Here's what turned up.Canva, the image editing tool, not only gave me the exact

A question that comes up a lot is "how much is too many affiliate links on a page?". People get really nervous about adding more than one or two affiliate links, and think that Google will penalize them.In general, standard advice is to use as few affiliate links as possible. Why? Because you don't want to be overly promotional. It's poor UX for visitors, and it makes sense that Google wouldn't love it.However, there are many situations where you can still rank really well with a high amount of

There's a weird thing about the third month of your online marketing journey that really trips people up. For some reason, right around month number 3, motivation starts to wane. I'm not the only one who sees it, and I've felt it myself!Why is the third month, the most difficult month?Personally, I think it's because it's when you exit the honeymoon phase. The first month is really exciting to get started. The second month you feel like a hardworking entrepreneur, and success is right around th

There's a lot of interest in affiliate programs that pay out big commissions, and for good reason. Making a $1000 for each sale means you need just a few sales for a full time income. However, there aren't a lot of these big ticket items out there, and it really is a grind if you want to push the same product over and over again, hoping, praying for a single sale!You can still make great money with small commission items!I blogged before about how I built up one website to earn $1500 per month

I was checking my Google analytics from last week, and noticed an odd thing. One of my top 10 trafficked post from the past week was one I had forgotten about. I outsourced it at the end of Jan 2020, and now it's getting some great traffic!It's now getting 100-200 page views per day! The interesting thing about this post is that it's a "buy" keyword.For years, I stayed away from "buy" keywords. You know, stuff like "buy plants online" or "buy a new fridge".Most SEO gurus will tell you that thes

There are two ways that I do research to monetize my affiliate websites.1. Do affiliate program research before you build the website, then structure your content around those affiliate programs2. Build your website first, then find affiliate programs relevant to the content you're creating.I like to do a mix of both. I'll do some initial research beforehand, but since an authority website is always growing, I know I will discover many new affiliate programs down the road anyway.I've been talki

Last week I talked about how home gym equipment was selling out online, and I though it was a really good niche topic to get into right now and in the near future. If everyone does a website on home gyms, would it be too competitive or saturated? No!That's because there's lots of subtopics, or micro-niches you could focus on. There are TONS of ways to niche down your topic and get more focused on a specific aspect. Here are 10 gym affiliate micro-niche ideas I came up with this weekend, but the
