I wanted to write this post because there seems to be some major confusion going around about when you can or cannot post links to your website. Perhaps the rules have changed, but as far as I know, IT IS NOT SPAM when you post your website link.The important thing to remember is what context the link is posted in.I have seen several times in live chat, and many comments over the past few months stating that you cannot post your website link because it's spam. The most frustrating thing for me

It's no secret that making money takes time and patience. Many times, it's not clear how much time and patience will be needed to see a project through to the "end" (i.e. when you are happy with the amount of money you made).For example, I started a website back in June 2015. It was a side project, but only becaues I didn't have time to write the content myself. 80% of the content was outsourced from the beginning, while I focused on other, more important websites.Well, I kept sinking money int

One of the most frequent niche questions I get is about Anime. I guess there's a bunch of anime fans out there, or maybe it's just anime people are comfortable online, so aren't that scared to try out building an online business. Either way, making a website about anime is definitely a way you can make money online!My first piece of advice about making an anime affiliate site is to not just pick "anime". Anime is a huge industry, and can be broken down into more focused niches. I'm not a big fa

There are hundreds of thousands of affiliate programs out there. Search just about any product, and there will be a way to promote it as an affiliate. But the depth of affiliate offeres goes beyond what I ever thought. I help out a lot of my referrals with their research from time to time, since there's a lot of questions about what's going to make money and what isn't (hint: ANY niche can make money).So as I do this research, and research for my own sites, I stumble upon a lot of opportunities

As many of you know from my previous blog post, I'm in the middle of moving. Well, the move is basically done, but there's a lot of work to be done at the new house, some of which I'm doing myself, and other work I'm contracting out.Basically all day I'm thinking about how all this stuff could be the basis for a successful online business. I'm constantly looking online for how to do something or how to fix something. YouTube and bloggers are very helpful, and many times I end up ordering things

As June comes to a conclusion for 2018, my yearly anniversary inside Wealthy Affiliate is coming around again. I've been pretty quiet in WA recently, but am still working behind the scenes on my websites.Early 2018 was lots of drama was happening my my neighbors, so rather than escalate things, I just decided to move. Well, buying a house and moving everything myself (I was too cheap to use movers) turned out to be a whole lot more work than I planned. In addition to all that, I'm doing various

There are a lot of things you can do wrong as a newbie, but one of the worst is to have the wrong mindset! Here are three simple things that trip up newbies all the time, but shouldn't. You Have To Learn SEO To Make Money#1 on the list is definitely this whole "SEO" thing. Yes, knowing SEO can help you earn money online by allowing you to outrank your competition.

I've come across more than a few discussions lately about keyword confusion, so I wanted to make this post to help someone struggling with keywords. This won't be a "comprehensive" understand everything from step 1 style of post, but a unique explainer that can be a next step to understanding how keywords work and why we use them.THE Core Keyword ConceptAt it's heart, a keyword is just an article topic. If keyword metrics are confusing you, forget about numbers for a second and remind yourself

Reviews are an easy way to rank and earn money with your website...sometimes. If you can get on page 1 position 1 for "my product review", you are pretty much guaranteed to earn some income from that page.The trouble is, this is well-known information, so everyone's doing it. You just aren't going to rank for "Squatty Potty Review" unless you are lucky, or have a serious advantage compared to your competitors.So why even write them?Well, sometimes they do rank, so it's worth trying. Also, remem

One of my websites is highly seasonal. Working with a seasonal website can be tough, but it can still make money. The worst part of having a seasonal niche is that there are some serious downtimes with traffic and sales. If you have a website about surfing, then you'll see a drop in traffic during the winter.The good news is that because it's "harder", all you have to do is be consistent and you'll see most other markters drop off, while you remain the most successful! There's always a way to m
