Super Affiliate Challenge 2020 - Week 2
There is a long list of tasks to complete by May 20th.
Posting to my Website
I have posted my third article of the month, yesterday. I plan to publish two more this week. My goal for the final week of the month is a further three articles. Can I do it? I know I can. By blogging my intentions, I have significantly increased my chances of success.
Building my Brand
My branding is going well, and I will be tweaking areas of the site to enhance that look.
Wealthy Affiliate Blogging
The WA Blog will have my attention at least once a week. One will be like this post, a progress report and my thoughts on the Super Affiliate Challenge 2020. It is my goal to be at the Super Affiliate Conference in Las Vegas next year. There is a lot of work to do.
These first two weeks have highlighted two weaknesses of mine. I am somewhat naive and trusting of people, and I am weak on my SEO skills.
There is not a lot I can do about the first, other than be more alert, and aware that I only see good in people. Second, I can do something about it.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Search Engine Optimisation is covered in Wealthy Affiliate but doesn't go into enough detail. I switched to Yoast a week ago to help me with my SEO. Yoast does highlight my weaknesses, and I try hard to get as many green lights as I can. What it doesn’t tell me is what effects individual SEO steps have on my rankings.
Some pointers from Yoast have improved my posts, but I still don’t understand what I am doing, and how my actions may or may not affect my Google positioning.
Comments, which has been a hot topic on WA this week, is another area in which I made many newbie mistakes. I am talking about receiving comments not giving comments. When I’m giving comments, I do take care, but I have been careful, I do sometimes get rejected, sometimes for some odd reasons.
It would help if the person asking for comments were able to convey what it is they are wanting. We can then adjust our style of writing to match their requirements — something for Kyle and Carson to consider.
Perhaps I can suggest to Kyle a short course on what constitutes a useful comment and examples of what is unacceptable? I may feel better about rejecting comments.
I have started an online SEO course, to learn the technicalities and better understand the why’s of SEO. I do like to know what I am doing rather than blindly follow someone else.
Stay With Me
I look forward to next week when I expect to be writing again about my successes, and not too many failures.
