About Oscar19855
Joined November 2017
My name is Oscar. I am so happy to have signed up at WA. I am trying to earn some extra income to finish paying my recently built house. Here are a few things about me.

*I have been teaching for 13 years in a private school. I’m currently the principal of the K-9 school. I earned a Masters degree from Walden University in the educational field. Teaching is my passion!

*Not only to I love to teach, but to learn. I love to read and to learn new things from different topics, but yes, new research in the educational field.

*I am fluent in Low German, German, Spanish and English, but English is the 4th language that I learned.

*I am married and have two little boys, which keep me busy and sometimes make me work in the late evening in order to get my articles and comments done in time.

*WA is a wonderful community that I have been very happy to be in the last few months. I am excited to learn new things in a completely different world that I have been so far: Marketing. I love to write and discuss articles, so I hope my niche site will flow well and ultimately earn me a passive income.

After almost 6 months of writing, I think I am getting stronger at it. I was once strong in writing but then left it aside for some time, so now it took some practice again. I am happy with my achievements so far, although no $$$ has come in. But that will come over time, because I am focusing now heavily on helping people. I write tons and tons of content. I have written an average of 1,300 words in the past 21 days. I think that is not bad.

Wishing you success as well.

Thanks for the follow and the links to some great posts. I love to read success stories. That keeps me motivated. Staying motivated after 5 months of hard work, little to no traffic, no sales, is sometimes a challenge. Yet I keep telling myself: You might have to tweak some things but you will see, you will reap what you have put in of hard work in all these months. I am pushing myself every day to continue. And slowly, but surely, things will be rolling. I try to remind myself that this is a business, and it takes a while to build it. Cannot expect immediate results.

Wishing you a blessed Easter,
Oscar

Oscar,... such a wonderful name. Strong and inviting profile page As well. Thank you for that

Sir I am pleased to meet you, as I am most curious to others interests in language... this is something going into my retirement years I'd like to focus on...

Also In the background of your profile image,Oscar, I see a well dressed young man I can only think that he is your son.
The love that a father displays toward his own, reflects later,most in their character...something I feel as fathers, we should remain aware of and nurture.

I dropped by to thank you for the follow Oscar and to say that I will be very interested to watch your progress here at WA and learn from your posts.

Follow bright/sunny people; look for positive outcomes...best to you, Oscar, ...respectively David

Thank you so much, David. I am new at this business venture and I am excited to learn many things here. I have made a lot of progress in the last few months.

I love learning languages as well! Although I use all 4 languages every day in the environment I live, I love to learn more each day.

That little guy is my oldest son, he is 3 years now. I have another baby boy that is 9 months old. I agree, the love a father is only understood when being a father. Never thought that one could love one of its own that much.

I wish you much success here at WA as well and I look forward to making a great team.

Hello Oscar and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here you might have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Thank you Oscar for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are now in the process of creating content for your affiliate marketing website.

It is important to fully understand how you should go about creating that content that will produce high Google rankings. Using low competition keywords is only a small part of the process.

Google has a set of guidelines for people creating content on their affiliate marketing websites. They do not like affiliate sites that are heavy on the selling and light on the help.

Though this may not occur to you in the beginning of your affiliate marketing journey, offering help instead of selling to your website visitors will yield more sales.

When you have some time, read the brief training at the link below which will explain Google's guidelines in a more simplistic way. When you help instead of sell, you will see better results.

Thanks for the helpful information. I am trying to write content and focus less on affiliate marketing. I also haven’t found that many products that I can link now.

If you would be so kind and look at my articles and website, I would appreciate. Www.myfamleez.com. The rodidut review needs to be worked on, but maybe you can give me insights on the other articles.

Thanks,

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle,
I have changed my niche and have built up my website kind of in the past few weeks. If you have a little time, I would appreciate feedback. I have been ranked by Google already, but need some advice. I am going through the training and I am learning new things all the time, but somehow somebody with knowledge needs to jump in to tell me about it. If you have the time, would appreciate. www.myfamleez.com

So far so good, I think you are off to a good start here Oscar. :)

I really find your BG colour hard on the eyes and very distracting, if you are going to use a background colour, make sure it is not so in your face. Something much more subtle or just white would work better.

Focus on getting more comments and engagement going within your posts.

We have a SiteComments platform here at WA where you can get comments on your pages/posts. Within the SiteRubix menu under SiteComments you will be able to gain access to this platform. Here is the direct link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/comments/requests

This is great for getting engagement on your website (which leads to rankings) and this is what I suggest you do with every new post you build on your website.

Overall, your content is great though and I think you are heading in a good direction so far with your website!

Oscar19855 Premium
Kyle, thanks so much for taking the time to look at my page. I really like the expert opinion here. I love WA, but there are many newbies, just like me, and feedback is narrow. So, expert opinion is really important to me. I appreciate you looking at it. I have already made some fixes that you suggested and have also put up a product review, as well as my first 3000+ word post. I do hope I am heading in the right direction.

I love to do this! Writing is actually one of my hobbies. I only found that out when I was taking a Master degree. I had to write so many essays, at least 2 long essays every week. That improved my writing skills a lot and I enjoyed it as well. Since English is my 4th language, I really had to focus hard to get all those essays done nicely and timely.

I hope those acquired skills will help me in my endeavor here at WA.

Hopefully we can stay in touch and I can receive your help again over time.

Wishing you a blessed Christmas season,
Oscar

I think some sort of grading system would be incredibly helpful to the end-user. Also a break down of the pros and cons for each:

http://myfamleez.com/5-top-rated-bathroom-scales

I think the addition of that too a "top 5" sort of page would be really useful and insightful to the visitors that come to your website looking for information.

Personally I find it difficult to quickly look through your content and decide which one is for me and ultimately I'm going to have to go and do more research to find out (thus you will lose the sale because I will likely visit other pages).

I hope this clarifies for you and this make sense. :)

Oscar19855 Premium
Thanks so much for your feedback. I think product reviews will be my biggest challenge. I sat for hours and days and almost weeks on that post and I just couldnt get it done the way I wanted to. I think the content posts are somewhat better, although they need to be worked on as well. I finally decided to post and wait for comments and learn how to make product reviews.

I will definitely take that into account.

Thanks again,Oscar

Also, what I had been looking for is charts. I have not found the option. I need to dig into it to find how to make charts in wordpress. I'll find it and correct that post.

What sort of charts are you trying to make?

There will be plugins that you can download within Wordpress that you can use for this sort of thing. These are found within the Plugins tab.

Hi Kyle,

Around 7 months ago, you helped me greatly with my first product review. You gave me valuable feedback, which I have been working on. I am trying to improve myself with product reviews, and they are getting easier every day.

Would you be willing to check a product review for me now? I have done multiple product reviews on my site and would be very thankful if you would check one for me. That way, I know if I can see if there is something else that I need to do.

This review is about a product I own: https://stop-sweating-now.com/what-is-sweatblock-your-best-choice-to-stop-excessive-underarm-sweating

And this one I researched: https://stop-sweating-now.com/what-is-duradry-is-it-the-ultimate-solution-to-excessive-sweating-find-out-here

I know you are super busy and do not like to use up your time, but if you have a little chance, I would really appreciate the experts’ view on it.

Have a great day,
Oscar

Sure, I definitely have a few suggestions here.

(1) Your header image is far too large and takes away from your actual content. People need to scroll down in order to see your content. The visuals and the relevant imagery should be placed directly inside your content instead of a static and overwhelming header that shows on every page.

I would either minimize this or remove it altogether, it is not offering any value to your end user and is impacting their experience in a negative way.

(2) I would work to get more comments on all your posts. You can leverage the site comments platform for this, but it will really help with your overall engagement, trust, and ultimately the rankings in Google, bing, and Yahoo. :)
Reply
Oscar19855 Premium
Hi Kyle,

thanks so much for stopping by to my website and giving me valuable feedback. As for the imagery, I think I do not quite understand what you mean. If you see a post with a picture in it, it is more appealing than a post with just text, or? So, I did not exactly get that with the images. Also, is it more in mobile that it happens or on the computer?

And yes, I definitely need comments. Since I am very, very busy, I am focussing on content and nothing else (although I know that comments are part of it). I have 33 posts up now and I am planning to go up to 70 posts before I focus more on comments. I should probably do it the other way, but comments take a lot, lot of time!! With my first website, I wrote a post, did 10 comments. But it seems like my site first has to sit a while in google until it trusts me. So, for this website, I have decided to first write lots of content, and then go back on each of them, add links, edit, and add comments. I hope it will work that way too.

If I want to work on my website, I have to do so in the middle of the night, so I have had to figure a way through it.

Do you still think that it will work like that?

What about the review itself, is the content good and quality?

Thanks for your time,
Oscar

Kyle Premium
Yes, posts with relevant imagery are much more effective at drawing in your audience. It sounds like you have a really good schedule with your content and you have produced quite a bit already. Keep up the great work, as you create content you will gain more and more rankings, in Google and other search engines (as your authority goes up!)
