About Robert-A
Joined September 2014
Hi Everybody. My name is Robert and I'm a Scot who lives in our capital City of Edinburgh. I was born and raised in the countryside and spent a big chunk of my working life on the land. Made redundant in my late 30's I went back to college as a mature student and then on to university where I gained a degree in Business Studies/Business Administration. From there I went straight into the Civil Service, working for our government. I've been working with computers for many years and have also been earning a living as an online mentor/tutor for a few years.

I used to have over a 100 websites (some Wordpress in the early days of mobile devices) I created myself, but I sold a lot of them coz that's what I mainly did. I must add that since joining WA in 2014 I have given it up to concentrate on my endeavours here instead, and so far I believe I'm doing quite well.

I make good enough money from the internet most of the time and try my best to help others achieve the same level and beyond of the success as I have.

Since joining Wealthy Affiliate I have contributed in a positive way and have published hundreds of blogs on the varied aspects of earning an income online. I should add, the information within these blogs is based on my own experience and lots of research so don't take my word as absolute gospel. I'm sure there are other WA members who have more internet marketing knowledge than I do, and its always best to get a second opinion, is it not?

Hobbies/Interests: Writing, Painting, Cycling and just being outdoors.
I also like tigers and would love to go to India and see them in the wild.

I appreciate you taking the time to read this short Bio.
Have a great day.
Robert Allan

I have been using quickshare for 4 years with no problems.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/quickshare/

Once you download it and activate it you go into its settings and tick/untick the option boxes (see pic to see my own settings)

Remember to SAVE CHANGES.

Once you have it to what you want it will put the relevant Social media Icon at the bottom of every post/Page you publish.

Dear Mr Robert,
I can't get in touch with Mrs. Kyle. That's why I'm talking to you.
I have been warned by close associates of Mr Kyle that I have opened too many of my profiles and that I have created confusion.
Forgive me, please for these mistakes
.
So please delete the following profiles:
vitas 1, Vitas Bosko 47, vitasiky, VitaSprayPro, vitas,
BVITAS1947.

Leave only the 'vitasfitnes' profile to be active.

Please let me know when you delete these redundant profiles.

If you can't delete my redundant profiles, please show me how I can do this.

Also, please explain to me what it is: Upgrading the $ 19 premium? Does this mean I still have to pay an extra $ 19 in addition to the $ 50 monthly subscription?

I warmly welcome you,
Again, forgive me the mistakes I made.
Bosko Vitas

I cannot delete the profiles but I will contact Support for you and they should be able to delete the profiles you do not want.

Right now you are a free member and you have a trial period of 7 days to decide if wealthy affiliate is for you or not.

After the 7 days you can upgrade to be a premium member and it is 19 dollars for the first month.

After that it is 49 dollars each month.

However you can stay for as long as you want to free and you get two free websites to create and build out to make you money.

You must start the training and it will show you how to do this.

Hello Robert, You have a fascinating background and bio!

When I read that you had over 100 websites and sold a lot of them, it reminded me that Empire Flippers is a way that you can sell a website that currently is making decent money every month and has a track record of online earnings. I have seen websites that have only been started up a year ago being sold via Empire Flippers for sometimes huge amounts.

Just another reminder that creating a successful online business is something that we can sell as a going concern, and then start another one! And it's something that is building value that can be handed down to children/loved ones to either continue running in a nearly automated way (if you decide to retire from the day-to-day management of your website) OR sell via Empire Flippers or a similar online service. Fantastic!

I look forward to following your successes here at WA and learning more about your work!

Its just a hobby now Kate, something to fill my days since I took early retirement.
The sites I have with WA are purely for information purposes for the members and the general public.

I have been a mentor/tutor for a long time and I make a few bucks from that.

I had a look at your Diabetes site and its very very good.
You have put a lot of work into it so I hope you have great success.

Now I'm off for the night as its getting late here in Scotland.
You get stuck on anything at all then drop me a couple of lines and I will do my best to help.
Bye for now.

I am stuck trying to use Gravatar. It will not accept my email or user name or password. I apparently have many such things. I am new to computering and the WA. I am learning both how to use the computer and how to become an affiliate at WA. I THINK I NEED to find out what I used to sign up at first with WA. I mean my email and password. I also think I should just start completely over with a new account and pay again for premium. Any suggestions?

SirTristan Premium
You opinion is requested sir.

Often when I'm just doing my normal daily routine, I will suddenly think of something I should have put in a blog I've already written and published. One of those "aha!" moments.

Do you suggest I:

1. Go in Wordpress and edit the blog to add what I want to add?

2. Comment at the bottom of my blog? So I'm commenting on my own blog?

It's generally not going to be enough information to write an entirely new blog, otherwise I would do that.

Thanks as always.

Hi Robert,
You helped me earlier with another question; so I thought I'd contact you again. I've got a website I purchase from Human Proof Design. They developed it and just dumped it on me. I haven't a clue what to do with it or how to use it. I'm a beginner here at WA and have another website about dressage. You helped me with that.
The website in question is about dog collars. I want to expand it and make it about dog training.
Can I import it into WA so I can get help on how to use the thing? If so, how do I do that without messing the whole thing up? Carole

Robert-A Premium
Hello Carole
If the site has been built with Wordpress then you can just transfer it over to WA.

However if it hasn't been built with wordpress then you're stuck with it where it is.

To transfer a site from somewhere else is easy enough to do.

In your Question Box at the top of your page just type in -

transfer site to wealthy affiliate

and you will get several results on How To.
Reply
CaroleF Premium
Thanks. I'm assuming it was built with Wordpress, but I don't know for sure. They are not answering any of my questions; so is there some place I can click on the website that will take me to a dashboard or something? It's really a mess what Human Proof Design has done here.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Don't you have Login Details for the site?

If its a Wordpress you should be able to login to your Wordpress Back Office the same as you can do here with a site you built with WA.

Thanks Robert. I just found out Siteground hosts it. I do have login details, thankfully, I saved, when Siteground contacted me. It is a Wordpress site.......thankfully. When you say "transfer site to WA" in the question box at the top of the page, which page?

CaroleF Premium
Do you mean in the search box up there?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
No I don't mean a search box wherever you're see one.

If you have a website with wealthy affiliate then you have login details for it.

If that other site has been created with wordpress then there should be login details for that as well.

I can answer "yes" to both your statements. But how do I conduct the transfer?

Hi, Robert A, I'm writing this to you because I know you do respond faster to me. My question is that if I upgrade to Premium now, is this platform setup to automatically debit my account in a month's time because it's showing recurring payment. I don't want that. I want to be able to choose whether to renew my payment or not.
Thanks for your quick response.

Remember if you do cancel your membership you will have 30 days to come back.

If you think you wont be back for a while or not at all then I suggest you download a copy of your site and you can take it with you and if you find cheap hosting that works with Wordpress then you can simply upload your copy of your site.
Reply
JamesBatife1 Premium
Alright sir. Are the steps it will take take to copy a site simple sir?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
The steps are simple enough.

First you have to have the plugin Updraft installed in your wordpress.

Then you save a copy of your site within your wordpress after you have downloaded the plugin and activated it.

Then you download and save it to your Desktop.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/updraftplus/

Another way is to Export a copy of your site.

Outstanding bio! You've been a busy guy. Good on ya'.

I like your hobbies an' interests, although I appreciate tigers in places where I'm sure they can't get at me. I'm funny, that way.

I have also been working with computers for a long time; since I was a child an' computers took up whole buildings, in fact. It has been interesting to watch their progression, over so many years.

I've always wanted to visit Scotland, but I'm waiting for those days when the land joins back together so I can either bicycle or drive there. I'm not afraid of flying or going by way of ship. In fact, I've done both, but it does seem to me that a few too many negative things happen on those vehicles for me to still feel confident in their ability to get me from point 'A' to point 'B' in using either of them. Haha

'Course, there are an awfully lot of negative things happen with cars, as well, but if no one reminds me of that, I can still pretend that I don't realize it. :D

Warmly,
~ Yaya

Hi Robert. I thought I'd ask you directly a question on here, before I go to Tech Support with it. I tried getting help on Live Chat but I don't think folks understood what I was asking.

When I follow someone like you, I was under the impression that I would get notified if you did something, such as made a post. That is not happening for me. I looked and confirmed that under My Notifications I have every single thing checked.

The only thing I have turned off is emails. I prefer not to get a ton of emails from WA. I'd rather find out what's going on, on the web site.

Do you know why I wouldn't get a notification that you've blogged, for example?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hello Colin.
Turning of emails is the one you should not have done.
You would receive an email when anyone you follow publishes a blog within WA.

Yes you could get a lot of other emails informing you of things that you probably are not interested in but then again you could miss an important announcement as well.

Its a personal decision what you do.

Hi Robert,

I think I have an idea for a niche that I would go with for my website and I would like to know what feedback/advice/suggestion you have for it. Recently, I updated my profile page description to add a section about my hobbies/interests as a way to help me narrow down to a niche that I would go with for my website.

I mentioned that my hobbies/interests include, but is not limited to, video games, exercising, swimming, outdoors/nature, and travel.

So, I am thinking of maybe going with the travel niche for my website. I am thinking about a city-specific travel niche that focus on New York City. So, I would like to know what feedback/advice/suggestion do you have about this?

Please let me know.

I to have disabilities (which I wont go into) so for me that is what I would concentrate on. What I mean is.
I would make my target audience people with similar disabilities to yourself. That way you could write articles with some authority because they would be based on your own experience.

We have a great tv travel show over here that's shown on Saturday mornings and it has a segment of it dealing directly with people with different disabilities.

You would be surprised just how much there is out there in the world for people with disabilities such as blindness or mobility issues.

Therefore why not go with your travel interest and base it entirely on your own travel experience.

I do mean all it entails from deciding what goes into your suitcase, problems you could encounter at airports, train/bus stations and to where you are going to stay at the end of your flight to what you want to do once you get there (sightseeing, entertainment etc etc).

Hope I've been of some help.

Are you saying that I need to have personal experience with a niche for my website?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
What I am saying is its always best to go with something you have experience and/or knowledge off so you can write with some authority.
This authority will come across in your articles and people like to believe that the author of the articles actually knows what they are talking about and this will build up trust.
Without trust you are not going to make much money in a specific niche.

Hello, Robert and have a nice day. I did an SEO site check-up and this what it says "There is likely no optimal keyword density (search engine algorithms have evolved beyond keyword density metrics as a significant ranking factor). It can be useful, however, to note which keywords appear most often on your page and if they reflect the intended topic of your page. More importantly, the keywords on your page should appear within natural sounding and grammatically correct copy.
addthis - 16 times
script - 16 times
arturo - 13 times
orbigoso - 10 times
best - 9 times
Keywords Usage Test
Your most common keywords are not appearing in one or more of the meta-tags above. Your primary keywords should appear in your meta-tags to help identify the topic of your webpage to search engines.
Keyword(s) not included in Title tag
Keyword(s) included in Meta-Description tag.

I was really stuck on this issue and I hope you can help. I read all of your 4 blogs about title tag, but I'm sorry maybe I'm just hard headed. Do I have to login to my admin area first and what's next? I hope you can help and thank you so much.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
In your wordpress when you have an article in Edit Mode at the bottom part of the page you will see

a Box for the Title
a Box for the Description
a Box for Keywords

Also if your article is a POST and not a Page then over to the right you will also see

a Box for Tags

In your article you should have your MAIN Keyword as part of the article Headline (H1 Tag).

Also try to have it in the next Sub-Headline (H2 Tag).

Also have it in your first paragraph as part of the first sentence.

Have it again somewhere in the middle of your article and then once more near the end.

In your Title Box at the top of your Article you should also have your MAIN keyword as part of the title.

This is because your Title will become your Permalink and this Permalink becomes your article's URL and the first thing that search engines see and will index you for.

After that its down to how good the content of your article is.

You should also have your MAIN Keyword as part of your Alt Tag in your first image.

Hope this info helps you out.
Have a good Thursday.

Hello Sangeeta and thank you for reading my Bio.

You have only been here for 3 days so you must be taking the training.

If you have a website so soon then you are still not ready to promote products.
Please take the time to finish the first course of lesson or you are going to make mistakes.
Because you are new to online work you will not realize you are making those mistakes.

When you believe you have learned enough from the training then you apply to online companies to become an affiliate with them.

Then you will promote those companies products or services on your website as an affiliate.

There are several Asian companies you can be an affiliate with.

Have a read of this web page -

But for all that we do have a beautiful country with scenery second to none with our mountains, rivers and lochs.
I worked on the land all over Scotland before I was made redundant at 38 and then went to college and on to uni after that and was headhunted by our government so went into the Civil Service.
Would you believe it, the sun just came out so I might be off on my bike.
Fingers crossed.

Well that is inspiring that you studied so hard after the age of 38!
There's hope for me!
I love the beauty of your country! I have Scottish heritage and I'm sure I would feel a little 'at home' there.... Rain, snow and all! You can keep the haggis.... Hehe
Well, the sun has smiled on you! Go enjoy your bike!! :)

Hi Robert. I'm new to WA and just finding my way around the site. I posted a question about keyword searches recently and I'm pretty sure you responded. I cant seem to find where my previous questions are logged, so I can't check if it was you! Sorry. Anyway, I have a question about keywords. In your message to me, you said on Jaaxy you like to get traffic over 100, QSR under 100 and SEO in the late 80s into the 90s.

But when I use Jaaxy, I don't get any figures for QSR or SEO. Is this because I have Jaaxy Lite?

Also, When I search on Keyword planner or uber suggest, my main keyword phrase gets around 6600 searches a month, but on jaaxy it says there are only 227 searches a month. Am I interpreting the Jaaxy data incorrectly?

Sorry for long question, I'm just a bit lost on this site! Thank you

Robert-A Premium
Hi Lesley and I do recall your question and my reply.
I also recall telling you I have never used Ubersuggest but going by the results you say you got I doubt very much if they were a true reflection on the keyword usage.

When using the Jaaxy Lite Keyword Tool you have to actually click on - Get QSR - to get the figures for QSR, KQI and SEO.

Google Keyword Planner is also at odds with real time results as those are tabulated over 30 days but day by day so the keyword is a total of daily amounts whereas the Jaaxy Lite tool gives you a total figure for the month and that month wont have the day by day totalled as the Planner Tool does or Ubersuggest.
Can you follow the logic of this?

Use the Jaaxy Lite and you will get a more realistic and more reliable total for the searches, traffic, QSR and SEO.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but I've just double checked my jaaxy stats on the main key word phrase and it's ave search 227, qsr 180, seo 87. What do you think?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Its not too bad but you can do better (I mean that in a nice way).

Ideally you should aim for QSR under 100
Traffic over 100
SEO in the late 80's into the 90's.

I wouldn't pay too much attention to Searches as long as they are over 100 of course to tie in with traffic for that particular Keyword.

Reply
LAMac Premium
oh, I see, so it's the traffic that I should be concerned about rather than the number of searches? That's a bummer. If I change the wording, the number of searches is 118, qsr is 40, SEO 98 - but traffic is only 21. Presumably that means that even if it ranks highly I will only get around 21 visits per month. Damn it!

don't dismiss low traffic
if they are a targeted audience (which they probably are for that keyword) there's a good chance they will turn into buyers.
I use low traffic quite a lot.

The qsr is great as is the seo.

Hello Bijan

If you want to p-romote your website on Social Media its always best to have a Business Page and keep it separate from your Personal Page.

There's no harm in having your website URL in your personal page though.

If you have an account with FaceBopok you can join various Groups associated with your Niche.

You can also buy an Ad and make it Public.
This means it gets seen right across FB.

Hope this is enough info to be going on with.
Enjoy your Monday.

I feel really inspired from reading your profile. I also wondered in the first instance how you managed to have a whooping amount of blog posts (484) and you have no trainings at all, not even a single one! Makes me wonder if probably you aren't interested in accruing cash credits for yourself. Well maybe posts/Articles on blogs generate more money though?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Yes Ojo its a personal choice not to do trainings.

In my previous 9 to 5 I was a trainer for 10 years and I know exactly what the new recruits had to know and understand the processes and procedures to do the job they were hired to do.
I never went in for videos or long discussions and created my own training material for them they could print out and take home with them to study.

I never had one trainee fail in 10 years.

Kind speaks for itself does it not?

Enjoy your Saturday.

Hi Robert
When I first joined as a starter member back in 2014, I was fortunate enough to come across your profile, read a couple of your posts and have since followed you, which has been a great help with my online journey so far.

I have been meaning to ask you why is it that you have 484 Posts offering great insights on many subjects but nothing under the Training Tab as such.
Quite clearly, a good number of your posts are excellent training Articles, so if you don't mind me asking, is this merely a personal preference/choice?

I hope you don't mind the question, but I was just curious.

Thanks Again

It is a personal choice.

I was a trainer in my previous 9 to 5 when I worked for our government.

I knew just what information that the new recruits needed to do the job they were hired to do so rather than show them videos and have long discussions I made up my own training material.

95% of this was written so that they could take it home and read at their leisure and come back with a better understanding of what their own 9 to 5 job would entail.

This worked for me and for them and I never had one failure in the 10 years I was a trainer.

Speaks for itself, does it not?

I have travelled to Edinburgh and Scotland when I was a master student at the University of London two years ago. I really enjoyed the spectacular scenery in Scottish Highlands!

Currently, I'm taking the course in WA and I would like to inquire you some questions:

I'm thinking of my niche now. I got an idea from my current work.
As we all know, AI and IoT become more and more popular in recent years. I'd like to choose "Smart Speaker" to be my Niche.
But I'm not sure for two things:
1. Should I narrow down to some specific brands or products?
e.g. Amazon- Alexa, Google-Google Home, etc.
2. Is “Smart Speaker” market already too competitive?

I see you are keen on visiting India and seeing tigers, I love those big cats too!.
I was sent to New Delhi on a 4-day business trip (only 4 days sadly), and have always wanted to go back. What an interesting and vibrant place! I am also interested in following in Mother Theresa's footsteps, a largely unknown fact about her is that she was an incredible businesswoman. She set up self-sustaining communities for people suffering from leprosy, where they could live, heal, work, generate an income (fish farming) and their children were in close proximity being educated too.
Great to meet you here.

Hi Robert,

I have been following the training, but I guess I am confused as to what type of site to set up so that my website can direct people to my Ebay store I currently have online. The problem is, I have a tough time deciding what site to choose and when I do choose something, there are SOOO many things that go to a theme that they want you to choose? Sometimes there are all these extra plug-ins they want you to choose for that theme? I am a person who learns best by actually seeing things applied in front of me. When I see all the blank spaces or pages I am lost because I don't
have a format to follow that says..put this here or put it there. I wish I had a page that tells you step by step what to put in. Does this make sense? I hope I am explaining this right. I really want to do this but as a first time learner, it is not easy.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Ruth just choose a standard theme such as Twenty 17.
I personally have used Frontier for the past 2 years and found it an excellent choice.
It comes with the least amount of bells and whistles and pretty easy to use and maintain.
The plugins you need are not a problem either.

You can start off with the bare minimum such as -

All In One SEO Pack
Classic Editor
Contact Form 7
Easy Cookie Law

Then you can add these if you want to -

EWWW Image Optimizer
SSL Insecure Content Fixer
WPtouch Mobile Plugin

You could also add ones such as -

QuickShare
Google Website Translator
Fonts
Pretty Links

For your content you can either have a Post or a Page.
Of course you can add images to those and have links to whatever you are promoting, in your case your eBay Store.

Tell me, is the eBay Store actually yours or are you working with it for eBay?

You get stuck, you send me a Private Message.

To do that you go to my profile and click on the Blue colored words Private Message near the top of the screen.

Dear Mr ROBERT-ALLAN,
With personal satisfaction I have accepted the opportunity to review all the VIDEOS at the GETTING STARTED level, which you sent me. Namely, in order to open the possibility of restoring knowledge from past VIDEOS, I extracted from each video the most important commands with the relevant times in which they are located. So I got a list of commands from VIDEOS and presented them in Word. So I made it easier to renew the knowledge from the already-produced videos.
CONCLUSION
Online Entrepreneur Certification contains 5 courses with 50 lessons. Imagine, please, when I finish my 50th lesson, how do I remember what contained the 28th or 12th lessons or any other?

hello Robert,

I am very new here. Not just that I am new in this digital world, also a tech Dummie. Worse, I am now working on my ever first website and I am stuck with writing with the content - " About me" page. I am not a writer. English is not my mother tongue and I speak German and with that. My grammar is horrible.

Then, I read your Bio. Very very impressive :) . I wish I have your writing talent.
I couldn't even finish my "About me" set up of my ever first website. :( That is for me a wall to break in the next days.

I thought to myself, how could I write? Not to mention effectively? Even the niche I have chosen is something that many people do not really talk about. So the pressure to write at least "good" about it should at least catch attention. I do not know how to create from writing the readers reaction like " hmmmmmm" or " "Aha!" or " OMG, I would like to read further. Or just to intrigued them to read further.
I know what I need, but I can't excecute because of this lack of this talent : Writing

Is there any possibilty, for you to guide me, check my website? Honestly, I am struggling to put my niche idea into words. I am overwhelmed and my note pad is full of erasures because I feel I couldn't precisely put my message clear. :(

It took me 2 hours to finish even this message to you. :( But so far, I was able to finish it.

Wow Robert! This is so impressive! If you don't mins, may I ask how old you are? I'd like to share with some of my friends who consider themselves "too old to learn"! You are such an inspiration! Thank you!

I'd also like to suggest (if I may...) that you set the intention and begin planning your trip to India! It will only happen if you make it happen, as I'm sure you know :)
And then PLEASE write a piece about it when you get back!

Hello Louise and thank you for reading my Bio.
As for my age - I wont see 65 again that's for sure lol.
As for the trip to India to see the tigers, that has been put on hold so many times I have almost given up hope of ever going.
So many things to do at home and this business to run and my two daughters to see and of course the grandkids and great grandkids (youngest 9 months).
Onwards and upwards Louise and you get stuck, you get in touch.
Enjoy your Wednesday.

That is incredible Robert! It's so good to see there are people in the world who do not let anything stop them learning new things and expanding their horisons!

I understand a bit about seeing the kids, grandkids and and great grandkids. My gran is now 88 and my two are her first great grandkids, so we see her almost every week. I can see the effect it has on her when we miss a week.

Enjoy them and spoil them, no matter what the parents say! :)

My mother is 92 and she has quite a few great great grandkids.

Now its time I was off this machine as its getting late.
Catch you another day Louise.

Hi Robert. You live in part of the world that is on my bucketlist -. Scottland and Ireland - the moors, the craggy hills, the people, the culture, the music and the language have been my dream to experience.

Thank you so much for your help yesterday at Knottatart. I super appreciate it.

Hi Paula and welcome back after your forced absence lol

If you ever get across to Scotland I would be more than happy to show you around my home city.
Lots to see and do so you are sure to go away with lots of great memories and photos as well.

Also if you get over to Ireland I can ask my sister to take you in hand and look after you. (she lives in the Republic of Ireland in County Cavan as do two of my brothers.
But I have relatives in Northern Ireland as well.

I have loads of relatives over there. They moved for the work about 35 years ago and never came back.
I actually spoke to my sister today coz she was over to see our mother.

Now its about time I was signing off for the night.
Take Care.

Quick question for you Robert as I am a bit confused about something (nothing new there then lol). I have been reading the post that Jay put up recently and he is saying you can change the title in the meta tag to something totally different to the url name, and the description, is this wise or is it better to keep it the same?

Also, I have just renamed one of my posts as the heading didn't read right so I got the same keyword just round another way but the same traffic and qsr, would it be better to republish it with the new name and take the other one down as it hasn't even been ranked by google yet or just leave it?

My brain is not working at all today? xxx

What do you suggest as headers? I am using the traditional headers of Home, About Me, Blogs, and Privacy Policy. I will look at breadcrumbs. I am using the Ocean Extra theme with Elementor as a page builder. As a footer, I will use a header of products. What do you think?

Hello Sandy.
About Sandra would be better.
Also Blogs is pretty non descriptive - blogs about what?
Your Privacy Policy is taking up space that would be better of for another header relevant to your Niche.
Put the Policy in the Footer with your Disclosure/Disclaimer.
Your Theme is a personal choice sandy so if it suits you then who am I to say change it.
You get stuck, you get in touch.
Have a great Wednesday.

Hi Robert,
Newbi here. I'm having trouble linking a click bank product. I got the link from click bank, but when I try to attach it in Word Press Edit it won't take. When I check website the word is there but nothing happens. Any info would be appreciated...thanks
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Is it the HOP link and not the Code?

Its easy enough to insert your link.

When you have your article in Edit Mode you highlight a piece of relevant text.
Then click the paper Clip icon in the menu.
A box appears directly under the highlighted text
You insert the Affiliate Link into the box.
You click on the little cog wheel to the right of the box.
Next small screen - make sure your link is there and click the Open New Tab box is ticked.
Click Add Link and you should see that highlighted text has turned blue.
Save as draft or Update depending if the article has been published or not.
Click Preview and test the link.
If it takes you to where its supposed to then all is well.

HI Robert - so lovely to have met you and, like you I love the outdoors however my outdoors interests involved racing cars as a teenager and then rallying after my first marriage and actually rallied until I was 6 months pregnant with my 5th children much to the dismay of my mother. Have driven the desert, from Sydney to Perth 21 times 20 of them by myself and actually had my 6th baby on one of those trips - can't understand how no one has made a film but there you are - I am not famous enough obviously lol

Hey Robert I just had a conversation with you yesterday you posted on my wall and followed me after I followed you.
My username is KevinV91
I'm Sorry to have to do this but im desperate I was just banned without warning from writing on here whatsoever. I can't reach out to anyone.

I tried to email kyle= carson from a website that talked about this issue but I don't know if they will get back to me.

I had an affiliate link in my blog and I didn't know I couldn't do that someone asked me to remove the link I tried but couldn't find a way to edit the blog and the next day I'm banned.

I love the service and the people here I don't want to have to leave. Communication is half the value of WA i learn by asking questions and conversing with others.

at least half of my blog posts were to try and help others.

i know I'm asking for something with nothing to give you in return but could you please help me with this issue since your an ambassador and get this ban lifted?

i really had no idea I was breaking a rule or I wouldn't have done it,
Thanks for your time Robert.

It seems like if you share url of your blog post outside of WA, it usually disappears.

Another time I read somewhere your blog content can be copied by someone else if you publish at Blogger.com.

I am new for these things.
Would you mind offering your opinion about it when you get a chance!
Thank you for your time and help in advance.

I don't know what you mean by disappears.

I share my blog URLs all the time and especially in my website articles.
They are a great way to get visitors to wealthy affiliate and if they join you get the referral credit.

If someone does copy your content they cannot publish it because this would be duplicate content and the search engines would penalize it and probably ban it.

Hi Robert, I would like to ask for your help, just to let you understand where I am at the moment. Unfortunately I don't have so much time to spend here for the moment, I have already my website (almost 2 years now) but I use it like a personal diary for my trips. I love to travel and share my travel experiences with others, but I never thought about getting money out of it. So I'm just trying to understand if that is possible, if I can start to use my website for it, or better build another website with a real "niche".
Thanks for your help in advance.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hello Fabio
Its entirely possible to earn money with a travel website.
Have you never thought of turning your diary into a Travel Blog.
There are many people do this and make good money from it.

Once established, your travel blog itself could earn you $3,000 – $5,000 / month, but if you broaden your horizons and start working on other income streams like freelance writing, content creation, social media management and consulting services, you can double or even triple this figure.

Here is a web page that should give you some ideas where to start and how to.

https://problogger.com/make-money-blogging/

Here is another web page

Hope this is enough info for you.
Have a great Wednesday.

Thanks a lot for your help Robert, I really appreciate that. Just another question, if I upgrade to premium now with the offer for the first month, then, after the first month, can I decide to do the upgrade to premium for 1 year, or I need to keep going monthly? I mean, if I want to give to myself an opportunity, I will have one month to understand how the upgrade to premium works and decide to keep going at least for one year then.

Sorry I forgot to give the links to my blogs within WA. You can take the first month at the discount or go straight to a yearly membership.

Thank you for following me, I now follow you. I responded to you earlier. Thank you for the assistance so far. Never made it to Edinburgh but did spend some time in Glasgow in the 60's with a group called the Country Gentlemen. Didn't make any money but had a great time. We did record an album at our expense. Worked with a Scottish C&W singer by the name of Ski Laired. We backed her when she played Iceland.

Hello Robert,
I like your blogs I am fairly new here. I run & own a bed & breakfast in the Snowdonia national park. Which does take up a fair bit of my time especially as we go into summer soon. At the moment it is quiet.
And very soon we are having a lot of new windows installed. Anyway I thought I would reach out to you as you have a lot of experience.
I have created my own website a completely different business to the one I run in the physical world. I have learn,t so much since I joined the wealthy affiliates. I am sticking to the training step by step, it takes me a long time to understand things I keep changing my theme on my website as I keep getting stuck at finding how to put pics on, move text and just getting around the website etc. I have done a couple of blogs now could you take a look and tell me what you think.I seem to spend so much time doing it and I just don,t think I am doing it right.
I don,t have any affiliate links on there yet as I have not got to that bit yet I am up to the google + bit which is taking me hours to understand.
I hoe you can help me I just want one persons opinion at the time and saw you.

I spent quite some time in South wales and still have friends there (Port Talbot) and in fact was down there just before Christmas last year.

It can take quite a long time to understand the ins and outs of marketing online but I believe I have covered judst about every aspect in my 400 plus blogs.

Have a read at the ones you believe will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.
Every little bit of info will surely come in handy somewhere down the line.

I'm afraid I can't take a look at your site coz you never left the link to it lol.

That way only the two people can read them, whereas.....

I am in Michigan, "The Mitten" of the US, Metro Detroit area. I lived in downtown Detroit in my 20's, and loved it. But I am a country gal at heart, so I have been slowly moving further from the city. It is still considered Metro Detroit, but I am now "out in the country" a bit, on four acres, where I can walk out the back of my property onto state owned land with 30-some miles of walking/biking/horse trails.
Here is a little trivia for you: By a previous marriage, my last name is is that of a famous tragic play, written by a famous English bard, that those in the theater world often refer to as "The Scottish Play" ...
We spent our three week honeymoon traveling all over Scotland by car. A few years later, I backpacked in Europe and spent a few days in Edinburgh. Absolutley loved my times in Scotland. Travel is still on my bucket list and would definitely love to visit Scotland again! And if I do, I will take you up on your offer of showing me the sights :)

Hello Emily from Michigan.
I had a friend from Adrian (she died some years ago).
I was born in a little farm cottage and not a hospital and my grannie delivered me.
I was raised on the farm and worked on the land until my 30's.
I still miss it now I have to live in a big city so you treasure your 4 acres.

The play is McBeth Emily and yes its referred to as the Scottish play and you are not supposed to mention its name coz it will bring bad luck.

A question for you now.

Did you never tell the time with dandelions?

When myself and siblings were kids we used to.

If you ever come back to Edinburgh be sure to let me know and I will show you the sights and probably places you never knew existed..

Right now though its time I was in a hot bath then an early night.
Bye for now.

I know Adrian, it is on the other side of Ann Arbor, where the University of Michigan is located, from where I am. Fun fact: It used to be known as the fence capital of the world :)

I do treasure my land, very much so. I often just sit and stare at it and watch the wildlife. I hope that you have occasion to go a spend some afternoons here and there visiting your countryside. What a wonderful piece of family history to have in that your grannies brought you into the world! I was born in hospital, but chose to birth my babes at home.

I had not heard of telling time by dandelion. I googled and see that lore is how many breaths it takes to blow off all of the seeds of the globe. Love it, thank you for that.

Hope you enjoyed your hot bath and early night.

Hi Again Emily.
My friend actually came over to visit Scotland and she stayed with me for 6 months until her Visa ran out.
I never saw her again after that.

I actually have a photo of that day I was born.
It was taken outside the cottage and my granny was getting her photo taken by my mothers sister.

I actually cycle a lot (weather permitting) and get out into the countryside as much as I can.

You are supposed to blow on the globe 3 times and the seeds that are left are the o'clock.

Of course it was pure luck if it was right but you know how kids are and we believed it lol.

Now I must be off as Mondays are my busiest days uptown.

Might catch you later.

"The dandelion is called the rustic oracle; its flowers always open about 5 A.M. and shut at 8 P.M., serving the shepherd for a clock." Source: Folkard (448. 309), from "The Child and Childhood in Folk-Thought," by Alexander F. Chamberlain

Hi Robert,
Good to meet you. I am very new to internet marketing having joined WA a short while ago. In still trying to figure out my niche.
I see you have written many informational blogs but if you happen to have any if your expert advice about niches. I would greatly appreciate it. I will make sure to read your blogs as I progress. I just don't think I'm there yet.
Look forward to connecting with you soon. Have a great day.
My best.
Marci.

Hello Marci and thank you for reading my Bio.
Your Niche will be personal to you Marci and only you can decide what it will be but with your previous experience in the fashion industry everything points to that at this moment in time.
However you could have other interests.
Perhaps a lifelong interest or hobby you spend a lot of time involved in.
I haven't published any blogs for a specific niche simply because of what I have said above.

You get stuck then you get in touch.
Also don't get me wrong coz I will help but you should also get in touch with the person you signed up under and in your case that would be -
TimMcKinlay

Did he not say he would give you his personal support.

Enjoy your Friday and the weekend to come.

Hello Robert of Scotland,
As a great fan of tigers myself I certainly would love to join in on your India adventure...Yet safe to say at this point I've enough saved to get to the western shoreline of the USA and perhaps a bowl of rice or two (Do love their curry recipes).
Recently found you out on another's profile page as I was stopping by to see his progress...no sign of life yet.
But you, my friend, are certainly moving along smashingly.
I will take you up on the kind offer of helping another and peruse your 390 blogs for gifts and surprises. as well I think it is in my interest to follow you by and by.
So good day to you and thanks for being here on the WA planet.

Respectfully, David

Hello David and thank you for reading my Bio.
Always happy to point people in the right direction.
Please do read my blogs but only those you believe will help you now or in the immediate future.
The rest can wait.
Also get in touch with the person you signed up under.
In your case that would be Nathaniell who has been here longer than I have and didn't he say he will help you all he can?
Have a great Friday and the weekend ahead.
Robert

Greetings Robert~

Somehow....but fortunately so..... I came across your profile page. Seems you are a Wealthy Affiliate member I certainly need to follow.....so I am. I am just getting started in the learning process here in the Bootcamp, although I've been a member for sometime. I decided 5 years ago internet marketing was the only way I could conceivably bolster my retirement income. Only when I found WA, did I find a credible road to that end. The technical side of it is my weakness, and has been the scary aspect that probably causes much of my procrastination. But it's time I climbed over it and got on with what I came here for.

I'm going to go through all of your articles for insights to bolster my dive into the Bootcamp.....at a glance, it looks like there's a wealth of information for me. You are someone my own age bracket, which I see makes your writing different from the younger set.......a beautiful thing. My name is Wayne Olson and I am on the central west coast of California in the U.S........the Monterey Bay Peninsula to be exact......and thank you for reading my greeting.

~Wayne

No probs Wayne and glad you liked my Bio and commented on it.
Its always good to comment on blogs or training you believe will help you now and there are quite a few members who have been here for a few years like myself.
get to know them and they will keep you ontrack.
I was a trainer for several years and trained many age groups so I can see where they're coming from and target my blogs accordingly.
Lots to read and learn and as I said - keep you ontrack.
Enjoy your Sunday.

Hi Robert, how are you doing today?

How is the weather beside you today? Surprise surprise, it's snowing in Penicuik and rather quite heavy too. A day for being in the house I think.

I hope you are somewhere warm and having your tea and biccies. Two games of football on TV so plenty time to work on here lol. xxx

I'm fine Cheryl, uptown as usual and there was a bit of snow falling but stopped now.
I will be off home soon.
Keep forgetting to ask.
Did you get your Account problem sorted and more importantly have you upgraded to yearly?
It will pay you in the long run to do this.
Catch you later tonight perhaps.
Robert

Chezbrown Premium
Yes, I have got the problem sorted out but haven't yet upgraded as I keep meaning to ask Kyle if because it was there fault I was locked out if there is any chance of still getting the yearly fee at the Black Friday price.

I don't know why I should lose out when they made the mistake not me. xxxx

Hi Again Cheryl.
Yes keep at Kyle.
Don't know if it will do any good but why not as a goodwill gesture.
Much better getting that yearly subscription when it means you are only paying about half price.
Ok better get on and do a wee bit work before heading off uptown.
Busy Monday for me as usual.
Catch you later.
Robert

Hejy Robert, u just answered a question someone else asked. I wanted to take a moment to say thank you. The question was about the length of a post. I have not been able to move forward for months because of the "1000 word post" hype". You advised a 300 word post was ok. Should I short the 1000 word posts? Thank you so much in advance my friend!!!

Hello J Lee glad to help out.
As I said in that other reply there are a lot of mobile device users and increasing all the time so it makes sense to keep your articles short and sweet and to the point.
Lots of smart phone users browse the net and I just cannot see them reading those very long articles right to the end.
There is also the fact that search engines rarely read more than the first half of an article and sometimes less.
This being so why bother writing very long articles that wont get read for ranking purposes anyway.
Say all that you have to say with the first 300 words.
Stick in a couple of good images.
Use your MAIN Keyword within your Title and your article Headline and perhaps a couple of good secondary keywords within your content.
This is what I would advise but it is entirely up to the individual what they want to do.
Enjoy your Tuesday.
Robert

Hi Robert,

Always wanted to visit Scotland. My great grandfather 5 times removed was sent to the US as a slave by the British after he was part of the Rebellion. Eventually got his freedom and fought against the British in the American Revolution.

Thanks for all of your great articles.. I have so much to learn and look forward to reading more of your blogs.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
No probs Leslie.
There's actually several people who fought in that revolution buried in an Edinburgh cemetery.
They have a small Commemorative Monument all of their own.

Yes plenty of tips and advice within my blogs.
Just browse and read the ones you believe will help you ow and the rest can wait.
Enjoy your Saturday.
Robert

Hi again Leslie you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Thanks for being one of the contributors to Keyword, Niche and Market Research classes, which I've been enjoying as I learn. I've just recently joined and am working to build/create my very first website ever, which is a thrill! I'm glad I found the WA community to build an internet business in, and will look forward to much more productive and positive interaction with everyone. Good to meet you Robert, loved your bio!

Hello Bob.
I've been around the block a few times and involved with making money online for quite a few years now.
The do say that nothing worthwhile comes easy and this is particularly so with online marketing in all its forms.
Success can be achieved though.
All it takes is dedication, commitment and stay focused on that success.
Lots of help here within WA and I'm always happy to point people in the right direction.
Have a great Wednesday when it dawns.

Robert, I enjoyed reading your bio. You and I have a lot in common, except for the love of tigers (I stay away from them!) I love Scotland and would live there if my wife would go with me. Thanks again for sharing... see you around the water cooler.

No probs, and sooner rather than later those tigers in their natural habitat will become extinct.
I would love to see them before that happens.
Scotland is a beautiful country if you can stand the cold in the winter.
Have a great Sunday.

Hi Sylvia and thank you for your kind words.
I'm afraid I'm not really into sports.
You must visit sometime and enjoy my beautiful country at its best in the summer.
You will never want to leave.

Hello Robert,

I got to visit your city this past July and I loved it there and can't wait to come back someday soon. But I do know that I am going to plan it at a time to see the military tatoo! I missed it by a few weeks this year!

Happy New Year!

Hello Fae.
The Tattoo is a great site and within the same time period there is the International Fringe Festival and also the International Book one and of course the Edinburgh Festival itself.
Lots to do in the month of August.
Have a great year yourself and be successful.

Hi Robert
Enjoyed reading your profile, this is all new to me but loving it all so far, I briefly tried a couple of other programmes similar to WA but they seemed to quite aggressively try to upsell you straight away so got out of those. This suits me perfectly, great training, I will have a read through your posts too, thanks in advance.
My nephew was at Uni in Edinburgh and has stayed on to work there, he loves Edinburgh.
Cheers
Simon
