Hi Everyone,
Around the end of the year there was a lot of talk about Amazon Associates and how the site stripe function was being ended. I never replaced this yet as wasn't

Well, I have it bookmarked, but I have not used it. Great response and feedback here from Frank :)

Hi Pete

I use non-clickable product images that I don’t get from Amazon and put Amazon affiliate text links below them.

Hi Frank,
Thanks for the feedback, I was thinking about doing this. Where do you get the images from and do you use exact images of the Amazon product or just something similar?

Thanks again
Pete

Hi Pete

I get the images for products for my guitar site from a variety of places, including musical equipment manufacturers' websites.

Many times, Amazon gets their images from the same place, but they don't own them, so they can't stop you from using them. The key is not to add an Amazon affiliate link to the images. You need to use their API if you want a clickable image.

Thanks Frank, really appreciate the info

Hey Pete,

Whenever I have an issue with Google, I go to Google's search engine with my question (see screen print below...).

You can see for yourself that others have had similar questions that may provide you with the information you seek.

Here's a link to the most recent support thread that you can see in the screen print, dated 2021: https://support.google.com/webmasters/thread/117532152/how-does-new-canonical-url-affect-the-old-indexed-one?hl=en

Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks Trish,
Thanks for the info, I normally try Google first myself too but have started finding that with website questions there seems to be a lot of conflicting info available, whereas there are a few people in WA that are really starting to become reliable sources. I often find the answers here much better and more up to date than i can find on Google :-)

Thanks
Pete

If and when that turns out to be the case, that's when I head on over to DuckDuckGo (where I go for ALL other tech type help) to see what they guide their users to.

Check out the screen print below...

I have never used DuckDuckGo yet but will give this a try

Thanks again Trish

Social Engagement & Marketing

Hi Everyone,
I have just found out that you should create a Facebook page for your site rather than an actual Facebook profile. I have 2 sites (one for my first niche which

You can have unlimited pages and/or groups on ONE profile.

It is against FB community standards to have more than one profile.

You can have ONE meta business account.



Thanks Abie,
Will do some work on getting that corrected as i had no idea that was the case

Cheers
Pete

Np, Pete :) And you're welcome.

Hi - you can only have one Facebook account, but you can add multiple business pages to it.

Thanks Diane,
So have you added your business pages to your personal Facebook account? If so can anyone see your connection to them?

I never knew this so when I started my first niche I created a new Facebook profile (with a made up name) as I thought this was what i needed to do.
Would be great to have some clarity now as I haven't really started promoting the page yet, do you know if I would be able to move the page I created to my own profile or will I have to just close it and start a new one?

Thanks as always Diane
Pete

There will be no visible connection between them.

Your personal friends won't know of the existence of the business pages, they are all separate.

I doubt that you will be able to move the page to your profile, as that would alert Facebook to the fact you have 2 accounts!

Probably best to create a new business page, connected to your original account

I am doing a Jaaxy review and was adding my Jaaxy affiliate link but have noticed that i seem to have 2.
1 appears in the WA banner section and uses my normal WA affiliate n

Thanks Abie, that is the one I was looking at but the one that is listed in the WA banner list is different and that confused me. Thanks for clarifying though. Davids tip below for looking in my profile pic was good as i never knew that was there :-)

You're welcome, Pete :) Thank you for clarifying.

Profile picture /account settings. to the right of your screen under WA settings, you will see your Jaaxy Affiliate ID. I hope that helps.

David

Hi David,
Thanks for the quick reply and that worked perfectly thanks, the link there is the same as the link when you are in Jaaxy too so all makes sense.
Not sure why the Jaaxy banner in the WA affiliate links uses the WA link rather than the Jaaxy one though
Thanks for your help
Pete

You bet.
