Hi, I have officially had my website up and running for just over a month now and despite doing my best with keywords and marketing it on social media I have had very barely an

I agree with what Glen says. You need to go more personal.
And more content to establish yourself as an authority. But I liked your style and approach. Everything will come. (I left you a comment on the site)

Thank you so much for the comment on the site. I will most definitely get working and get more content up.

You definitely need more content. Also, your site is very impersonal. I recommend making your About Me more personal. First of all, I did not see your name or picture anywhere. These are important in creating trust with your readers. Here is a good reference for creating about me pages.

Here is a great about me page:

I am not too comfortable making it very personal but i will consider your advice and try again

I had the same exact problem in the beginning. I thought I could get results by being anonymous on the internet. But it just did not work out that way for me. I found people are as uncomfortable dealing with anonymous websites as I am. People are willing to deal with faceless corporations because of the massive amounts of brand building corporations do. But they are very reluctant to deal with an unknown small business owner. That's why I put my name on my tax practice years ago.

You are expecting results too soon. You website is off to a good start but you are not yet to the level yet where you can start attracting visitors within the search engines. You need more content and that content should not have affiliate links.

Google will not rank a new website highly that have affiliate links on every page and post. You should have a ratio of 3 to 1, meaning 3 pages/posts without affiliate links to 1 page/post with an affiliate links. Right now you have only 4 pages.

I did not get my first referral until my 5th month and I had about 7 pages and 5 posts published on my website. It takes time for Google to recognize your website as an authority and that will only come from the consistent publishing of content that is linked to each other and doesn't have a lot of affiliate links.

Your website is off to a good start but your website is still too young for it to get any traction with rankings for your keywords. Start publishing some blogs with informative content about being able to work from home and then tie in how Wealthy Affiliate can help. Then link that post to a page where you have affiliate links like your WA review.

Really useful advice thank you

Hi,

You site looks pretty good. Your site might not be "converting" because there is very little content. There are only two pages that are trying to "sell" people to click on your affiliate links to get started with Wealthy Affiliate.

These are two great examples of websites that convert:
1. http://www.stealthsecrets.com/
2. https://aworkathomejobs.com/

Do you see the difference? It takes a lot of work and time to make this work, but it can be very rewarding if affiliate marketing is what you're wanting to do.

Hope this helps,
Darren

Thanks i will take a look at them

Authoring & Writing Content

I have a few ideas for content and blog posts but sometimes I get stuck and am just wondering what types of tools or resources others use to help in this department. I want to

In addition to the other ideas here, I use magazines to come up with content and niche ideas. One thing to remember is that magazines are representatives of niche markets. Car and Driver magazine represents the auto niche market. Yes that is too broad but when looking at the various articles, they represent the various sub niches.

So depending on your niche you can go to a store, pick up a magazine that represents your niche, look through it, and see if it sparks your creativity into content ideas. I just recently blogged about this with the WA community where I gave an example of content I was about to write for my website that I got from looking though the magazine. See link below.

are you using the alphabet search in google - type your niche in there and see what google drops down
or look at the bottom of the search page - also related searches
google now comes up sometimes with other questions at the top of the search.
you can also go into forums to see what is the main pain your niche has - answer these on your site and point the people in the forum to your site with a solution there.
check out buzzsumo for what others are talking about in your niche
think about related things to do with your niche and make a file with them in - you will forget things
always keep pen and paper on you - even mobile batteries run flat. jot down your ideas over coffee, talk to friends, talk to strangers - overhear conversations in cafe's
lot of ideas to find ideas
good hunting for your next idea
phil

ps you should be looking to the future and seeing what you really want your site to become, always keep this in mind - review it yearly,or 6 monthly to make sure you are on track. plan it
how do you want people to navigate your site, what do you want them to find
ask friends and family to check out your site - ask for the truth, say you are not happy with this or that and see what they come up with.
ask them if anything is missing, in their opinion.
watch jays training on understanding your audience.
if you do not know your niche - what do you need to learn
always approach it with curiosity, ask yourself questions, write them down - is that another topic for ablog or do i include it in this one, have i solved the problem, have i linked back to a product.

good luck

What is your niche? Mine is cat and pet products. I review products I use anyway. If I run out of things to review I look for great keywords to do another post on the same product or I might buy another product to try.

I am thinking of doing some purely informational posts that are not reviews of specific products but could have links in them to my other posts.

I use a free keyword tool called Answer the Public.

I have not heard of this. I will most definitely check it out. Thanks for this

I'll have to check this out as well :)

For my content ideas i used from personal experience or researched up on it and also asked family members and friends about there knowledge on things.

Thanks thats a really good idea i have never thought to ask family or friends. I try to research ideas on my own but if i get stuck in the future i will ask around.
