About Neilc
Joined April 2013
Hey Up!

It's Neil, here! :-)

Currently 37 years young and from the UK - England (Derbyshire) to be more precise.

I started this Internet marketing game in 1999 (Yeah, I'm old school) dabbling in affiliate marketing - promoting Halloween & Xmas products on Squidoo lenses, and mainly trying my luck in MLM. I've tried many other ways to make money and also learned the ins and outs of WordPress prior to joining WA.

I've made some money online over the years but never enough for financial freedom. So WA is the path to get me there.

If you need any help with your online biz, please feel free to give me a shout.

Hey man I am new to all this. After going to your blog I decided to start my own. Because I have been working with Rorry. So I understand most of it. But how do I know that my blog is set for all of these Pay Per Click, Pay Per Acquisition Blog, Website Search Engine Optimization Ad or Banner Network? My background is in industrial Engineer. Hey man teach me your ways....lol

Hey, we all have to start from somewhere. We were all newbies once.

Glad you found my blog and followed my advice. :) You've got a smart head on your shoulders lol.

Well, first things first...

Before you can focus on the money making side of things, you need to set up your blog so it's optimized for SEO and lay the foundations.

But fear not because the 10 free 'Getting Started' lessons inside WA will put things into perspective and help you start off with your new blog.

And then if you wish to continue, you'll be shown all the good stuff like writing quality blog content, adding images, engaging with your visitors, socially sharing your content, joining affiliate programs, and adding affiliate links to your content, etc.

If I taught you everything I knew, we'd be here forever LOL.

But most of what I know about blogging, I've learned from WA's training.

The thing I've found with programs like Rory's is that the training hardly ever gets updated, which means you're still learning old-school strategies.

The blogging training programs I started out with years ago are non-existent now because the creators failed to update the tools and training.

But here at WA, the training is evergreen and updated, which means it's gonna work for a long time to come.

Lemme know if you need further guidance dude :)

That's great buddy. the battle to gain final freedom is ever unending. we live to achieve goals and set new ones. it always great to know that whatever life throws at us, is up to us to create useful values out of them and be ready to share with people we come in contact with. Just saying giving back is such a noble thing to do and I share in your interest to help another man. Good luck. see you around bro.

Heh Neil,
Sounds like the person to come to in crisis! I thought you were in Oz when I saw you swimming with the dolphins. They are amazing healing instruments.

Hi Neil,
You were really young when you started the IM game. I guess we have a lot in common.

So, you are the Wordpress Man to turn to if any WA member needs advice or help with WP issues?

The Dolphins has made their choice so I will make mine as well. If I ever have a question about WP I will PM you straight away.

Or, do you prefer that I ask in public and then PM you?

<!>Jan, The Strategy Man<!>

Hi Neilc! I'm now on day 8 and as of yesterday, I rank #1 onpage 1 on goolge--how cool is that.

Boy am I having a difficult time showing the comments field on all my pages and post. I searched for articles, blogs, and videos. I did all that was suggested, however I still do not see the "comments" field available on any page. What can I do to make this happen? Thanks-a-million!
Reply
neilc Premium
That's pretty cool, Phildora! Nice work!

If you go to "settings" in your WP dashboard and select "discussion settings" there will be the option to allow comments.

But if that doesn't work, then you can select "quick edit" for each post and page and you'll see a box to check for allowing comments.

Let me know how you get on.
Neil

Hi Neilc--I did all of that--it still does not show on any page or post. Should I google for HTML to see if I can add this to my pages for a comment field to show? Let me know and thanks-a-million!
Reply
neilc Premium
That sounds strange. I don't think HTML will solve it since comments are a separate from your posts pages. Try contacting Site Support or Jay (magicstudios) - They may have the solution. The only other thing I can think of is searching for a plugin that activates comments (if one exists).

Failing that, test out another theme template with your site to check whether it's your current theme that's caused the issue. It's worth a try.

You're welcome! :)

Thanks again neilc! I tried 4 plugins and youtube HTML videos for assistance--still looking though. I did email support@wealthyaffiliates.com last night and will wait for their response.

neilc Premium
No worries!

Try different template themes just to make sure it's not a template issue. The best way to contact support is from inside WA at https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support.

I always get a response within minutes :)

Neil, I know you have left me a site comment. So far I have tried to reply three times. Twice yesterday, when I hit the wrong key after completing the comments and today when I accidentally closed Chrome. Yuk. I guess I must cut down on my multi tasking then I will comment again later today.

neilc Premium
No problem, Helen!

It's so annoying when that happens, especially when spending a lot of time writing a good comment. I've now learned to copy comments as I'm going along lol.
Reply
HelenpDoyle Premium
Strangely enough I do that too. Just not for this comment! Then I can't remember what I said so have to think about it again.

I will try again after Jay's webinar this morning.

Thank you for the follow. It was interesting to read the process you went through and everything you tried before you found success on WA. It is encouraging to us newbies and those of us who have also ran into different programs. You seem to have collected a great amount of experience and knowledge over the years. I look forward to learning from you and others that have been on WA for a while. Best wishes!

You're very welcome!

Yeah, I've been around the block a few times with internet marketing lol. But if everyone follows the training at WA, uses the tools and applies hard work, they will gain experience, not to mention an income. :)

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to fire away if you need help with anything.

Its great to me a fellow affiliate marketer from the UK. I also love the fact that you have done lots to raise money for Cancer Research UK. as with yourself this is a matter very close to me as well.

I hope to be able to donate some of my website earnings for cancer research when they start coming in. It would be great to one day find a cure

Look forward to following your progress at WA. As you are already successful with affiliate marketing I will be sure to pick your brains (I be gentle) :)

Hey there,
I am starting a face book group for comments basically because I want good comments and not the 2 for one deal at WA.
I have one other person interested right now and I want to make the group around 10 people in size and we all just comment on everyone’s postings.

I figure each person can put up what posts or pages that they would like to be commented on.

Let me know if your interested

Hey Neil,

Thanks for the comments on my SEOMarketingSoftware.net site. (The first one in my list of websites) I certainly appreciate it. Folks that stop by need to see questions like that. It helps guide them to the good stuff.

I always appreciate anyone that visits that site and I'm always interested in feedback. That's one of the benefits of being a part of this community.

If you find any tools or software along the way that you think I should add to my list don't hesitate to let me know. I'm interested in providing value for all from beginner Affiliates to Pro Marketers and SEO's. I'd be happy to and give your website a mention under your recommendation and provide a backlink also. (and anyone else who reads this.)

Thanks again and keep up the great work!

If there's anything I can ever do for you feel free to reach out at your convenience.

Build Websites. Build Links. Sell Stuff!

Neil, I thought I followed you when I commented on Iron Man. Oh well foiled again. I like the dolphins. Now that doesn't look like the UK even though I know there is are subtropical and tropical gardens in Scotland. The good old Gulf Stream. I have been to Inverewe many years ago.

It looks like you have been here a while so hope you are having success.

Keep in touch.
