About Phoenix420
Joined September 2012
The surgeon said I needed a multi-level low back spinal fusion.
I read about that: 50% success rate, 6-12 months to recover,
more fusion likely within 3-5 years! Sounded very bad to me!

Instead of surgery, I used a common sense approach that worked!
I'm pain free (without surgery) and would like to help other low back
sufferers end their pain, without surgery, too!

I had fusion of L1-sacrum in 2002. They placed rods, plates and screws that are in there forever. Nerve damage causes me the chronic pain. Best of wishes with your back. Sounds like you have a lot to be grateful for...

Nerves eventually heal. Yet, if you still have pressure on a nerve(s), then pain(s) will continue. That is my understanding. So, you need to get the pressure off that nerve(s). Or, have that nerve(s) deadened with RAF (radio frequency) ablation (the nerve(s) is sort of burned away). Cortizone injection(s) might give you temp. relief.

1kazygirl,
Tough deal for you! Yet, my System might help you. PM (Private Message me for info. since my System is copyrighted). I desire to help other back pain sufferers but also want to be compensated. Seems like everyone wants it fast and for free. Weird!

Ha! Was long ago for me! I just use 420 as something I knew I would remember and because it makes me chuckle a bit. I decided to save that for retirement years since I need to be able to focus until then. Then again: maybe I'll move to CO or Wash. State?

You wrote that you could relate to back trouble and I went from there. No big deal. Or, are you referring to something else?

Hey Phil, fellow 420 aficionado here.

Checked out your site and a couple things jumped out at me:

1) When linking to other pages on your own site, its best to not open them in a new tab/window. Dave that for external links.

2) On the "My Story" page, I'd like to know who you are before reading the whole story so maybe just at the start write something like, "Hi - I'm Phil and ...." then include a photo of your smilin' face!

Obviously it's up to you, just figured I'd say hi and give you my initial feedback.

Appreciate your feedback! Ummmm..... a wise member said to link pages with new tabs or else the visitor is likely to leave my site and that is why I did that. Good advice about the My Page profile. I do not want to add my pic since I'm dog ass ugly but will at least intro. myself.
Thanks! The 420 is/was meant as a joke and/or a number I'd remember. I don't use any of that.

You are correct: the purpose of opening external links in new tabs is so they won't leave your site.

When linking to your own content they're not leaving your site, which is why I suggested not cluttering your visitors browser with tons of tabs.

Whoever told you to open in new tabs meant exactly what I'm saying. But don't take my word for it, go back to them and ask for clarification!

I see what you mean now! Thanks for explaining that! I'll apply that. Thanks!

The blue matches my back ground but you can check again too see I love honesty you could have posted that in my comments..LOL

WOW your right the blue makes a heck of a difference thanks for the input and at least there was only a few errors that was fixable unlike my last site I deleted that was horrible but this review took me 5 hours last night

phoenix420 Premium
Good, glad u like blue too. I think all of this gets easier with repetition. Steep learning curve, then it plateaus? Hey, please look at my site and give me your honest opinion(s).

Okay I'm kinda a shy person so I hate asking for things even if its a simple question, but I do love comments on my site and love to read

Took me a long time to edit that! Finally accessed it at Settings/General/Site Title I can leave a comment. Need the name or URL of your site again.

I left a generic comment. Ummm...I'd remove "(FYI There are Do-It-Yourself kits that would result in a similar quadcopter much cheaper)." since that may make people leave to search for DIY kits. Also, I suggest that u add a menu and have one page with a video(s)/link to video(s) of this quadcopter. I clicked on your site title and that went to a mostly blank page. Took me a long time to realize that was a button to go to the order page. So, maybe add another menu page called the Order Page. Using the site Title as a link might be okay if you can make it clear, right away, that it is also a link (took me a long time to realize your site title was a link.) Try the K.I.S.S. method! Keep It Simple Stupid I try to use the KISS method all the time.

mikeperkins Premium
okay what is the kiss method never heard of it.and this is a new site not published yet
Reply
phoenix420 Premium
KISS is short for Keep It Simple Stupid. I use KISS all the time. In other words, make your site easy for visitors to navigate, make your site user friendly. I had trouble figuring out that your site title was also a button and trouble finding the button to go to the order page. I suggest you use a menu for that stuff since it would be easier for visitors to find their way around. Just my opinion. I like the blue and red.

Phil , I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Phil .

Askimet: I had to create a WP account first, then Askimet said I had to pay a minimum of $6/year for a biz website. I lied and said it was for a personal account/use so it would be free. Figure I'll pay the $6 when my site is functional/monetized. Will that get me into trouble with Askimet? Also, may one Askimet Key be used for more than 1 website?
Reply
Kyle Premium
No, you simply choose the personal option and select $0 as the payment. You can use the same Akismet key for multiple websites.

Ok, thank you for the response and the info. Another question but suspect i already know the answer. My answer is that Google XML Sitemaps will not activate until a new (just 2-3 hours since 1st published) website may be located/accessed/found/pinged. If that is the answer to why my Sitemap has not activated, then no need to reply.

Kyle Premium
Yeah, sometimes it is not instant. You need to have published content on your website for this to work.

My site is functional. LegitInetIncome.com I used the Omega theme and it has a bunch of stuff on the right hand side. Could you refer me to a tutorial about that stuff?

Those are called widgets and you are in full control over what goes over there.

Here is some good training on how to manage and add widgets: Hope this helps you out Phil!

Glad I was able to help a bit! Thanks for the follow too! Seems to me that a lot of the Wordpress details are very tricky the 1st time thru, then easier after that. I appreciate that other WA members are available for some help if/when needed. Plus, there are tutorials available for almost every problem/question/etc..

It is still under construction:

Pricing for my system is really a bugger for me.
It has been worth a million to me but cannot charge that!
Cannot give it away for free either, that is not realistic.
Tentatively setting the price at $100 with a refund policy.
Is that too much? Is that too little? What is your opinion?
I think my system can help your low back! Unfortunately,
I don't have a treatment for the neck except for P.T. exercises.
My neck seems to be permanently messed up due to being
rear-ended by two separate drunk drivers. Whiplash is no joke!
Please check my website in February since I expect it to be
functional by then. Oh, input (pos. or neg.) about my website
is encouraged.

Hi phoenix,
No problem, once you get up and running I shall peruse and let you know. Sorry to hear about your misfortune, I hope those drivers got what they deserved and you are ok at least. Myself i had a condition that triggered off when i was 32, so I had to get it worked on or else i would have had to make a living as a human paperweight. Talk soon
