Here in Ireland (and in the UK), we've been sweltering in an uncharacteristic heatwave for the last month. Temperatures have stayed consistently in the high 20's (celcius - 80+ Fahrenheit) and sometimes have gone above 30 C.There's been no rain either so green Ireland has turned burnt brown. Our water instrastructure is in a poor state and leaks a lot of water. We now have a nationwide hosepipe ban and have been asked to conserve water as much as possible. Dublin is so short of water that there

I figured it was time for another update on my progress in the Super Affiliate Challenge.I mentioned in my previous update that I had fallen behind by several weeks. At that stage (April 12), I had just completed the Month 1 training.Now here, on April 30, I'm about half way through the Month 2 Training. So I haven't caught up as I'd hoped. Still, there has been progress and here's where things stand:19 posts published116 comments published - half of these are mine as I reply to every comment r

Ok, so I've been looking for comments on my blog and posting comments in return.All good...up to a point...A lot of the blogs I leave comments on do not have a box where I can leave my web address. So I get no benefit from a backlink. The site owner gets fresh content for their blog though.When someone leaves a comment on my blog, I get some new content and the commenter gets a backlink back to their site.It's an unequal transaction. The commenter gets the better part of the deal because they e

Kyle's email for the third month of his Super Affiliate Challenge dropped into my Inbox a couple of days ago, reminding me it was time to do another report on my progress in the Super Affiliate Challenge, to keep myself accountable. My previous post was about the amount of work involved in this challenge. Things have slipped and I'm now 1 month behind where I should be. Up till now, I've managed to write 12 posts ranging from about 1,000 to 3,300 words. So at this point I have completed Month 1

When I applied to join Kyle's Super Affiliate Challenge, I didn't expect to be accepted. So it came as a surprise when I was. My initial idea was to continue working on an affiliate marketing site ( that I've had for several years in an attempt to give it more authority and boost its rankings.I contacted Kyle and he suggested I'd be better off creating a completely new site. So I took his advice. I normally self-host my WordPress sites but with this new site I decided to bui

I made some good progress on my website today. I finally got around to getting the site verified in Google Webmaster Tools, added my Google Analytics code and my Facebook Pixel code.Next I created a new list in Aweber for the site and added my first followup email for it. Then came the optin form to get those subscribers. I've now added that form to the bottom of all my posts. This is what it looks like:Not the prettiest but Aweber's form building abilities aren't its strong point. The form wil

I got a good start in Kyle's SuperAffiliate Challenge. Then, as frequently happens when you make plans, Life has something else in store for you. The CatFirst, the cat got sick. He wasn't keeping food down. It happens from time to time with him. I'm used to it so I didn't charge off to the vet. I waited to see how things would play out. He stopped eating. Could be good, could be bad. If you've got a bad stomach, eating isn't top of your priorities. Then he had difficulty urinating. Again, he's

I'm ashamed to say I haven't got a single Premium Member referral in the 3 years I've been with WA.It's not been for lack of trying. I've built self-hosted WordPress sites for years, some of which were targeted at the affiliate marketing niche. And on those I did promote WA with banner ads, in-content links and posts about WA. Lots of interest and link clicks but not a single taker.I mentioned in a previous post that I had just created my first site built on the SiteRubix platform. This site is

You may remember that Kyle put out a call looking for members to apply to his new 12-Month Super Affiliate Challenge. I thought I'd give it a shot and what did I have to lose anyway?Well, I got accepted! That was a nice surprise. Now I have to actually work to meet the Challenge!I normally build my WordPress blogs manually. I had to learn all about site security and what plugins to use to secure a site. Thankfully, none of my blogs have been hacked since I acquired that knowledge, so I must be

Well, that was easy. I normally build my WP blogs manually and self-host them. I decided it was time to give the WA site build process a try and see how the eventual site turns out.
