robots.txt is an item in your site that stops google scanning certain parts of your site. I wouldn't worry too much.

as for the "text is too small" error, it's a subjective thing - google has one opinion, you may have other.

Hi Christopher. Thank you for that I am ok with it now thanks a lot.#

Hi Everyone. Is it breaching the official secrets act and I hope I am not out of line asking this. Where is a good place to advertise WA. In the last 2 months I have had at least 1

Thank you all for your replies I really appreciate your input and its typical of the community here at WA. I have been on holiday's for the last 10 days and will be starting course 2 of the boot-camp tomorrow. I will take all of what has been given in your answers, Thanks again everyone and have a great day.
Best Regards
Thomas

Enjoy the second part of the training Thomas

Will do my best Catherine

Another very important free source of traffic which is often overlooked is forum marketing. Looking at my Google analytics I get about 18% of my traffic from forums

Hi Ollie. 100 in 2 months is great news. I would continue with this source especially as it's free. Now is the time to add more sources. Check out other free avenues first as paid advertising can really blow your money in the early days of trying it. Also I wouldn't necessarily advertise WA directly. I promote 'making your first blog'. 'build a free website in 1 hr', and others which all somehow lead back to signing up with WA.

yes Thomas it would you could try Bing which is probably the best place to start of Facebook . I would remind you that if you use Bing

you have to use the keyword research tool in Bing and Not Google Adsense. Theree classes on PPC (PAY PER CLICK) advertisements see the classrooms and here for Bing Also I have a real learning curve with PPC thisw month and it has been savage my advice would be use one medium and master it before going on to more

Got it Ollie. There is no sidebar on this theme. I'm in the middle of creating a training video on choosing a theme so check your emails in a few hours. ~Marion

Hi Marion. Thank you I thought I was cracking up I appreciate you taking the time to help. Did you have a pleasant bunch of "ZZZzzz's
(-:Ollie:-)

Yup! I finished my training video. You can find it at: Have fun choosing your new theme.

I had a quick look at the Adirondack theme. I did not like its preview of my website. I would suggest you use a simple clean theme. I use Iconic One.

Thanks David might try and change it .

Which theme are you using? Please edit your question to include the name of your theme so I can install it on my test website and try to put in a side bar. I'll check back when I wake up, it's after my bedtime now. ~Marion

Hi Marion. Hope you had a nice sleep and thanks for helping out. The theme is Adirondack theme .
Kind Regards
Thomas

Do you think they are doing some site work as I can't put my siterubix widget in either it won't show up?

Hi Vicky. No I do not think so because it worked fine on my other site. I saw your question but have no clue how to help you:-)

that's ok no problem, I can't help you either sorry.
We're a pair aren't we?

WA Affiliate Program
Updated

Not sure what to do here so I will just ask. When you are downloading your WA banners can they only be inserted into your side bar or can you put them on your page.
Thanks

Thanks Sarah There's a bunch of roses on the way.LOL

ahahah I love white ones! ;)

Success one more favour can you have a look and comment.

My partner always asks when I give her flowers " OK what did you do" is this a woman thing. Or a we just guilty lol.
Thanks for your help I appreciate and you have a great weekend.
Thomas

Ahahaha it's a woman thing I guess

About your post : the content itself is very good but what's weird is that the size of the paragraphs is really too small compared to the size of the page. The set appears more as columns than actual paragraphs. Do you see what I mean? Something to do with your theme maybe or your page layout

I had them bigger but was advised to break them down which I did think was strange at the time. I am new at this and now I am getting a bit confused about the paragraphs. I will put them back the way they were if it is making my site look bad. Thanks a million for doing this and I am very grateful for your help.
Thomas

Do tell me when you have made changes, I will check it out! I'm glad I can help
Cheers =)

You can add WA banners to your page... to your content you mean?

Hi Sarah. Hope you are keeping well and thanks for your answer. Yeah I have no problem with the sidebar but I cannot seem to get the banners to work on the main body of my page So I was wondering are they supposed to work there. Getting the banners to the content is ok but they will not work for me, is there a lesson on this.
Thomas:-)

Yes they do work, you need to paste the html code within the "text content"

What do you mean "they will not work for me"? What happens ?

This lesson explains it, how to add a banner on your page, that is on your content and not on your sidebar. Is that what you are asking?

Hi Thomas! I hope this will help!

Hi Thomas, This may help: ~Marion

Hi Marion. Thank you for your help it is much appreciated.
Thomas

Are you referring to your jewellery website? Nice site, by the way.

I clicked on the WA banner in the sidebar of your jewellery website and it worked, except that you have forgotten to make the target affiliate link open in a new window.

Always tick the little box in the WP editor under the link field "to open in a new window". That way visitors don't leave your website when visiting the WA affiliate page.

The sidebar banner works otherwise.

I didn't see any other WA banners on your site. Maybe a refresher for how to add banner image links might help. The training below covers both text and images, so focus on the image portion: Usually links don't work when there is an extra space or other typo or missing tag, etc. I would have to look at it to see what's wrong, so if you wanted to post the link here, I would be happy to take a look at it.

Hi Jude. No its my second site http://notrainsplanesorcars.com/wealthy-affiliate-review-through-my-eyes
Thanks for the info I will do as you said. Its the WA banners that I have the problem with I presume they are supposed to work when clicked.
Thanks
Thomas

Yes, I can see for example that on your page, free-website, you have not added the link correctly.

1. Open the page in the WP Editor.

2. Click on the image and and select the hyperlink chain symbol from the edit buttons. A small new window will open where you enter the link details.

3. Copy paste your affiliate link in the relevant field (not the link to the source of the image).

4. Check the tick box underneath to "open in a new window".

5. Save.

Do the above steps for all your banners.

In addition to the training links already provided, Kyle's video should help too:
