Although I know how to get my FB Pixel, I want to know how to modify this for Starter & Premium referrals here at WA. Anyone have advice on how to do

The trouble you run into trying to track affiliate conversions using Facebook is an affiliate driven site can not have a million tracking codes on it. Facebook Pixel I believe only allows one per page. Best bet is to set up a review on your blog, then a page with a redirect to WA after say 5 seconds, or measure your conversions by e-mail sign ups and accept the WA tracked numbers. If anyone knows another way I would love to hear them.

Thanks Andy, much appreciated.
Just seems odd that we have this facility within WA to track our conversions, with Facebook being one of the options. But no training on how to obtain this.
Cheers

I've been making Amazon sales from an old website of mine (amazing how an old site can start to rank without touching it for a year!).

I was just wondering if anyone use

Hi Nudge1969, as far as I know there is none.
But it would be helpful.

I know is bad practice to change a permalink after a post has been published, but is there any reason why a permalink cannot be changed after scheduling a post?

Yes it is because the page then needs to try and rank all over again.

I changed my permalinks after 6 months because I had no idea what I was doing. It took me 7 months to get the hang of it. I had to redo my titles so I did the permalinks as well.

Since I have learned more, I believe the damage would have been bad, but in the long run better because my site just did not make sense.

Nah, only 20 minutes or so.

Lol. Ok mate.

Cheers. Appreciate the help.

I've been using Divi Theme for a long time now, but lately I'm having so many connection issues.
Often when writing a post, I get the 'Connection lost. Saving has been disa

I stopped using Divi, for the reasons listed

Thank you for your question!!

I use Divi (since August) and it has been so frustrating because no matter what I do to optimize it, it's slow.

Was wondering if you maybe know if this is the case for all Elegant Themes or just Divi?

Thanks.

Alenka

Not too sure Alenka, but as Marion has suggested, WA may hopefully update their PHP to 7 or higher soon. I recently read that the support finishes in December.
So if WA does upgrade, we may find that Divi becomes quick in comparison to what we’re used to.

Yeah, it better, coz otherwise, I'm getting rid of it.

It makes me want to weep every time I see how slow it loads up... We put in so much hard work into the content etc and then it's slow.
Not happy, not happy at all.

Have a great day,
Alenka :)

Yeah agree. I’ve been onto both Elegant Themes and WA about this. Both seem to blame each other. Typical!

Thanks for this info.
So it looks like I wasted my money on buying the Divi (Divi builder 'nd all), not to mention the time it took to figure it all out.
Oh well... we live and learn.

If you think of a theme, any theme, that's fast and uncomplicated, I'd appreciate if you'd let me know. I'm in MMO niche, so nothing too fancy is also fine...

Thanks!

Best,
Alenka

I think I’ll sit it out for the time being. As you say, it takes time to learn where all the settings are in a theme and I know Divi very well.
So I’ll see what happens in the next couple of months. The slowness seems to be sporadic so I don’t know what to put it down to.
Anyway, if I come across a great theme I’ll let you know. I hear Genesis theme and Thrive themes are good.

Thank you!

The way I see it, Nigel, you have 3 options:
1) choose a different theme
2) wait for WA to upgrade their PHP or
3) use a different host

I was contemplating the first 2 Marion. I wonder if WA have a PHP upgrade in mind.
Thanks

As WA's current version is about to become unsupported I'm sure they'll have an upgrade in the pipeline.

Now I did the same as you Did Nudge, got everything re~authenticated, which didn't take very long, a matter of minutes : ) I only fetch and render the posts I want to do it too, if that helps you

Thanks Dave. I leaving it for a couple of days. Currently half my posts are indexed. Will see how it goes. Cheers

No worries, hope it works out

Thanks for sharing

Hey Nigel,

When it comes to Google fetching and rendering many of us have differing opinions, so rather than share an opinion, I would prefer to show you how you can easily access tutorials on this subject but sharing the screen prints below, showing how to access these tutorials.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks Trish, I'll check some of these out.
