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 many 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.

Well thank you Robert for filling me in with your passion for Wealthy Affiliate. I am getting excited and have lots to learn since I joined yesterday. I am a newbie on all accounts but feel the dynamics of Wealthy Affiliate and how much the community cares. Cheers with continued success. Catherine

Hey Robert how you doing...:) I need your help please...
The comment box on my website doesn't have the fields for the name and email address. Is there maybe a plugin that you know so I can add those fields or replace this comment box with a better one?
Thank you

Thank you again. What do you paint ? I just started my second still life of roses and butterfly. I still prefer the looser landscapes and old barns. These old barns are going to only be seen in paintings and photos. They are becoming scarce here in Missouri.

Yes it does if we're lucky. I'm very lucky. My health is ok and I enjoy doing things for and with my daughter. Our outing the 1 st is taxi to Dr office then across the highway to Wal-Mart. I get my hair done and she shops. Hope to go to a close restaurant for girl's day out then home to get everything into the house. When we leave Wal-Mart has to restock. Lol
Jim puts it all up and we're popped. Coffee and nap. We do this outing twice a month and really enjoy it. Getting old is great spending time with loved ones.
Have a wonderful weekend

Robert! Me again. I want to say that you are truly my mentor and that is why I want to send you all the PM. If fact, I have another one for you--it is a reply. Another "oops".

I have so much to do. Right now I am editing my content. I also go to paint and make sure my new images are the right size.
Anyway, as always, I am not in any hurry for your answer, I know a lot of people ask you questions.

just check back what I wrote on the PM as a reply.
Thanks.

Quickly, I ask the community, is my website seen in other countries? There is one man from Singapore who wants to buy a pair of jeans. He found it from my advertisement on Facebook.

Hi, Robert. I hope everything is well with you.

I do not know if you remember me, but I made a colossal error, big time. Ha Leooemery gave a post about editing the permalink and I did fine with that. (I think) I went to the editor to draft first, then shortened the Permalink and clicked edit. I thought about some of my posts and pages that really needs editing. I thought I could change the publishing time to a date in another 10 days. I thought that would give me the opportunity to really edit for publishing. BUT, I went back to my website and it is not listed. It just was deleted and disappeared, lost! What can I do? Other posts also need editing and I believe have been published. I will not change the publishing date--will update on the other sites. What I want to know about that is: if I make the article much better, will the first time I published it be the one that will get ranked? Is it acceptable to click on the edit on the permalink and rewrite it? I really hope I did not lose my post permanently! Leoemery had a good lesson for that. I think I will ask him the question again too. It is one of my best posts too. I will get ranked again on that post. I clicked the export and back-up with --clone, but something was wrong with the restore or something and did not finish. Thanks

Robert-A Premium
No probs about your site being online, you just have to write articles or reviews etc etc.

You must have hit Publish at some time or another and that's why you have 2 entries online just now.

Keep taking the training and step by step, fully understand one step before moving onto the next.
You get stuck, you ask questions and you ask questions and you keep asking.
No such thing as a stupid one.
I will be going out for the day soon but get back to me later when you have a problem.

I was worried about those things too when I first started. What Robert said, go through the lessons, read them twice or thrice if you have to, take your time. Watch the videos over and over too. Little by little, things will make sense and will fall into place. As far as having things visible on your website before you are finished, you have the choice to save in Draft instead of Publish mode. That is what I did and still do until I have my content the way that I want it. In Draft, it will not show, in Publish it will. Hope this helps.

Hi the Robert, greetings from sunny Arizona. Really enjoyed your bio. I have been to Edinburgh a few times - not for many years now, but - really loved your city. I have many relatives in Northern Ireland, as well as, South Africa. Unlike you I have been a user of the internet but not a producer on the internet .....so I feel very fortunate to have found the great community here at WA . The internet is full of bad places as you well know. I appreciate your support . All the best Carson 1

Hi Robert, Someone trying to sell me expensive SEO services told me that all the search engines scan all the websites every 2 weeks and that in order to get high rankings it is imperative to resubmit your website just at the beginning of each scan cycle for each search engine. What are you thoughts on this bit of cyber-lore?

Hello Linda, the Lone Grandmother and thank you for your kind words.
Yes there are a lot of my blogs on WA.
I have published 1,000's of articles on the net as well in the last 10 years or so and you have probably read some of them without knowing the author was my good self.
I do have a few Pen Names.
Even my Name within WA isn't my 'Real' one, mainly because I am borderline fanatical about my online privacy and security.

Please feel free to read as many of my WA Blogs as you want to and try to pick out the ones that will help you now and the rest can wait.

As you are a Christian perhaps a blog I published last year will be of interest to you -

Was in teaching (Prep Schools) for 40 years+. Am originally from South Africa but have been in England since 2004 and love it. Try to get back to South Africa at least once every two years.

Hi Carol and I see you want to follow me.
I will reply asap.
I have a software program on my PC that allows me to access every country in the world to encourage people to visit my website(s).
I can also access most if not all the major cities in those countries and right now at this moment in time I am in Brisbane, how coincidental is that.
Will be leaving soon though and heading over to Perth and all point west to follow the sun and eventually I will end up in New Zealand tomorrow morning.
I know Peebles very well and my only son lives there.
Our family is originally 'Border' folk and I'm in Galashiels quite a lot - you're sure to know where that is as well.
Now though its time I was uptown in Edinburgh as its Monday and Bills day.

Hello Pernilla from Switzerland (I know one person in Switzerland and she is a member of WA as well).
Yes I use to build simple little websites for people.
Very small and very cheap but I made money from it and that's what its all about.
I have two sites within WA but I have a few more that I have had for a few years. They mostly run themselves without much work from me.
Please do read some of my blogs that you think will help you now and the others can wait. They will give you lots of good tips and advice.
I say this because you will also get a lot of not so good advice from other members.
Perhaps they do really want to help but a lot of the time the help is not good and will leave you confused.
Have a great Friday and the weekend to come.

Hey, Hey, Robt A,

After much kicking around in my noggin, I think I've arrived at 2 entirely different niches, 1 for ea. site. I just want to get any, and all of your thoughts on this. Without going into all of my thoughts, here's my 2 choices.

I'm a professional musician of almost 50 yrs, so I know a fair amount about most of the equip in that profession. So, the first is to have a site that features maybe 5 different pieces ea. for 5 different categories every month. Now, it's impossible for me to demo that much equip myself, so I'll collect maybe 5 different professional reviews for each piece, then maybe 10-12 user reviews from various online music retailers. My primary affiliate would be Amazon, of course, and I can place a ton of their ads on my site as well. There's other features on that idea as well, but on to my 2nd idea.

I'm a Type 2 Diabetic, so I thought I could use that niche, and maybe some sub-niches in that to sell quality supplements. I could use the same type of model using 5 different supplements, and their expert reviews, blah, blah, blah.

So, there are my thoughts, please give me yours.

Thanks,
George

Robert-A Premium
Hello George
As a professional musician I have to ask - Do professional musicians buy their gear on Amazon?
Don't you think it would make more sense to promote gear from places such as Dawsons Music or Normans Musical Instruments or perhaps from a site such as -

http://www.globalaffiliateprograms.co.uk/musicians/musicians_and_performers.shtml

I must add I know very little about the music business but if I did promote as an affiliate I would go to the 'Hub' as a source for reviews.
Unless of course you're a writer as well.

As for your other Niche. Its always best to go with something you know a lot about and if you suffer from Diabetes then you should be ok with that but the Supplement Market is awash with products and a lot of them are no more than placibo's.
Saying this you have to be careful you are not stepping on any toes.

This is all I can think off just now.
I live in Scotland, UK and as its getting late I will be signing off soon.
Maybe catch you tomorrow.
Robert Allan

GPLea Premium
Thanks, and Cherio ole chap! However, I do have an additional question now that you bring up other musical affiliate sites. Is it possible to make $$$ with multiple affiliates with the same product? As for your question about Amazon being a great place. Indeed, it is if not for price alone. There ARE a couple of places that MAYBE beat their price, and, indeed, having expertise, or support in a product does come into consideration, but there's so much of that online these days it's not quite as critical as it used to be; especially when you have user reviews.

Hello Martin

Your Niche can be anything you want.
best to be something you know about
have some experience about
perhaps an old job where you gained that experience
It can also be a hobby or interest you have such as
fishing
keep fit
cars
photography

If you are going to publish a regular blog then you really do have to be regular with it
(at least once a week)
Read these webpages for some direction and inspitration -

Regarding: Website URL details

Quick question...I'm looking up domain names and I'm wanting to find out if for example I wanted the domain name LegitOnlineWork.com and it mentions it's available but looks like legitonlinework being available.

I'm ideally wanting to separate the keywords with a capital is this possible? If so, can you enlighten me as to the process of making this happen

www.LegitOnlineWork.com looks far better in my opinion then www.legitonlinework.com

p.s. this website is just an example.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hi Kirsty. I replied to your other comment with ideas on what you want for a Domain Name.
I just looked up legit online work and if that had been your choice you would have 354,000 results for those words.
This is a lot of competition don't you think?
It doesn't matter if you use capitals or not.
The search engines take the words and not how they are formatted except if there are underscores or hyphens (not a good idea to use them anyway).
As I said in my other reply think about what you are actually going to be selling or promoting and name you site accordingly.

To find out if the domain name you have in mind would have a lot of competition do a search for it within quotes.

For Example in your browser you type in -
"legit online work"

It will show what your competition will be with a domain name made up of those words. And don't forget those words will also most probably be included throughout the site because they are your keywords.

You do want minimum competition Kirsty.

Any more questions you get in touch but preferably with a PM as some replies could be rather long for a simple comment.

Enjoy your day.

This is sooooooooooooooooo overwhelming and I'm only just starting, less than 10 hours ago. I'm beginning to feel as though I've ended up in "The Matrix," sort of like being "Lost in Space" or I'm swirling around in "The Twilight Zone" or "The Outer Limits," but, by the grace and mercy of God, I'll survive it somehow.

I do see that this community is a loving, kind, very helpful to one another kind of place wherein people are always willing to help, support, encourage and cheer each other along. GREAT! I already feel VERY comfortable in being here and being a part of everyone. Thanks to all whom reached out to me with kind words and making me feel already as a part of this wonderful WA Family by graciously adding me to your "Follow" list. Blessings to each and EVERY one of you good, kind-hearted, busy people.

Hello Edrena and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined way back in 2013 you will no doubt have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 280+ blogs I have published within WA.
Enjoy your day.

You're so very extra special and I will mot definitely take advantage of your gracious offer to browse your many blogs...after all, I don't think I have the time to "re-invent" anything. Let me walk in the footsteps of those who've already paved the way. God bless you, Dear Sir.

If my "pea brain" remembers correctly, I think it was back in the time frame of 2008 or '09 or so when I first attempted to become a WA. My memory is actually somewhat of an unreliable witness now; but to the best of my memory, it was well before 2013 when I first attempted to try to become a part of Wealthy Affiliates and I did "hang in" with WA for several months before becoming frustrated, but it was a definite positive experience in being a part of this experience. Hopefully, this time I will be able to meet some, if not all of my goals. I pray for your success as well—and thanks for being so helpful, encouraging, understanding, and friendly to me.

Hello again Edrena and yes I am special, aren't we all in our own special way?

As you are coming across as a Christian may I point you in the direction of a blog I published within WA a wee while ago.

I believe you will find it interesting.

Here's the link to my blog - Enjoy your Thursday and the New year to come.

There seems to be a time difference between us and as I don't know where you live I can only contact you as per time this time difference.
Take care.

Robert,

Your websites are inspirational. I just checked them out and you have tons and tons of content. You must be a busy man haha.

Thank you for the boost. I was just sitting here trying to think of things to write about and I see that there are so many obvious things that I wasn't even thinking about.

Hi bob,

Hope you are doing great..!

I have done liking all your blog posts...

I think the last one at the bottom is ''Website Analysis Tool (Amended Version)'' If that the last it's all done and if there is more do let me know.

And I need some suggestion..

I am into Digital Devices. Ex. Cameras, computers, Drones, tablets etc. You can check the website as well :

www.source4electronics.com


Some advise and guideline as per my line line of interest or niches.

What suggest would you have for me in terms of Contents, traffic, ranking, Affiliate Panel,competitions, success rate, .doe it sounds likely to happen or not really.

What do you think. Thanks in advance.

Thanks,

Jon.

Hello Jon
Had a looksee at your site and its looking good, very professional.
You have done this before lol.
As for how to get visitors to your site.
I would go down the PPC route. Start of small and remember to do your keyword research first.
Keywords will make or break any PPC Campaign.
Try Google Adwords.
Ranking will happen after you publish regular content that has the aforementioned keywords.
A simple example - I can publish a blog within WA and get it to number one or two on Google within minutes because of my keyword(s).
It takes time, patience and a lot of research to get it spot on.
It can be done though as I've proved time and time again.
Unfortunately the newbie members just will not take my advice then wonder where they went wrong.
There are lots of good keyword tools and traffic generators of which I use one of each and I can easily get 2,000 visitors to my WA sites every single day.
Keep reading my blogs for inspiration.
Enjoy your Thursday.

Hi Robert, you seem like a breath of fresh air. I too love the outdoors but just joined WA in hopes to show my family that success can be anyone's if you try hard enough. I love designing things, not the best writer but hopefully with time I can become better at that. I look forward to learning from you. Until then, take care.

Hello Nicole and thank you for reading my profile.
I've been at marketing a long time now.
I still make time to get out for a cycle ride every day down the back roads close to where I live.
I actually do my best thinking when i'm on my bike.
I see you want to follow me as well so will get to that soon before I sign off as its getting late here in Scotland.
You take care as well.

Hello Mike and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I do my best to help the membership and hopefully they will start to make money after they learn the basics.
Of course I give them loads of tips and advice through my WA Blogs.
I personally believe that a lot of them will drop out because they still come into WA with the mindset that its easy to make money from the internet and that couldn't be further from the truth.
It really does take commitment, dedication and a whole lot of effort.
Enjoy your Thursday.

Hi Robert! I wonder if you can help me with something I've been wondering about?
When considering an Affiliate to choose, are there any "Red Flags".. warning signs to look for before joining??
I'm afraid I'm going to get wrapped up in something that will turn around and "bite" me...
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hello Lissa.
I'm afraid there are an abundance of scams and scammers out there waiting to take the money from the unwary and inexperienced marketer..
The big Affiliate networks are usually a safe bet though.
The one RED FLAG everyone should be aware of and that is - An Affiliate Should Never, Ever Have To Pay To Promote A Product.

If you are asked for money to join, then run very fast in the opposite direction.
Enjoy your Thursday.

Hi Robert,

Bossie from South Africa at this end. I came across your name while making contact with Lydia and I noticed that you are and old hand in this business and that you have done some useful blogging.

I'd like to work through your ideas and advice myself! I'm also new to this game, so I try to soak up as much knowledge as I can. I'm taking things slowly at this point because I really want to make this work. I know about learning curves and the last thing I want is to get to a point where I cop out. So, slowly, slowly catch the monkey for me.

I guess that's what's so unique about this community. There's a lot of goodwill and the folks are helping each other. I'm glad I've made contact with you!

I'd love to hear from you. Wrap up tight for the winter!

Regards

Hello Johan aka Bossie and welcome to WA.
Feel free to contact me if/when you get stuck.
Always happy to point people in the right direction.

one small tip -

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.

Well, there you go, Robert! Your first bit of advice, thanks!

Get ready for many questions. I'm going to pick your brains!

Robert need a little help. We went thru this once before but I guess I'm a slow learner. I want to add a banner to a page but when I copy code and paste it to the page all that shows up is the code .. no graphics.. tell me the process one more time if you would. Thanks
Reply
Robert-A Premium
If its a WA banner or any other banner that has a CODE - you are in your Wordpress - you have the article/blog/post/page in Edit Mode

You click on TEXT (to right of small WP Menu)

You insert the code where you want the banner to appear.
You click on VISUAL and your banner should be on the page where you inserted the code.

First of all there was no mentor that was introduced to me the time i signed up for member. I have been doing all the instruction given by the lesson such as SEO, hanging on fruit keywords, and even facebook promoting my website which I spent money on it . What I am asking is something that I probably need to do to get my website profitable. Because I dont want to spend money monthly as prime member without profit in return. Thank you.

Robert-A Premium
Hi
You are not introduced to your mentor.
He or she introduces themselves to you.
You would get a message from them as well as one from Kyle or Carson on the day or day after you joined.

You signed up under Affilicoach (Frank)

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach

Also there is Kyle and Carson to ask about aspects of internet marketing you are not clear about and you can ask them for advice what to do.

You follow the other wealthy affiliate members so that you can learn from them and can advise them after you have been here and have some experience.

So again I ask you again - what aspect of internet marketing are you not clear about?

Hello Cris.
I'm not sure what you want from me regarding advice.
You take the training and lessons, you fully understand one before you move on to the next and implement what you have learned in that training or lesson.

Your mentor (the person you signed up under) should be the first person you ask for help and then ask general questions from the other members.
Has your mentor (Affilicoach) not been helping you?

What particular aspect of marketing do you want advice on?
Enjoy your Monday.

Hello Robert:
I need a little help from you, a good advise:
It is about hidden pages.
Ive read what kyle writes about it but I do not understand its purpose.
Couldnt I just have a page on my site called "Products" and there list all the products for which Im affiliate and then make paid advertisement (PPC or whatever) for one or more of the products listed there that I wish to push at a certain time?
Why should I make a hidden a page for one product/offer and PPC advertise it?
Wheres the difference?
Please explain it to me.
Thanks
Best/Phil

Hello Phil
Ok you CANNOT have a PPC campaign running on the whole of your site - Why? because it would cost you an absolute fortune - Why? because the search engines would target your chosen keyword throughout the whole of your website and charge you accordingly.

The whole point of a Hidden Page is so that your PPC campaign is targeted only to that page's URL and nowhere else.
This is why you hide it from all the search engines except the one you're using for your campaign.

As Kyle says - the relevance is in the Keyword but you could have used that keyword in dozens of other pages within your website.

But with PPC you are only targeting that page.

You should create a separate Landing/Squeeze Page for each and everyone of your PPC campaigns.

Create a Category or Folder for them so they are saved there and wont be seen by the search engines and then you can use them as and when you want to.

You can also have several PPC campaigns running at the same time and each of them will have its own unique URL.

No point in you having them all on one page because they each have to have their on content specific to the Keyword.

Hope this has cleared it up for you.
Enjoy your Monday.
Robert

No probs Phil, word of caution though - do not put all your eggs in one basket with PPC - you could lose your shirt.
Best to test your campaigns and see what is paying you instead of you paying the biggest share for clicks.

Robert, I took a glance at your website and it is so so good. Hope to reach your level someday soon. Am growing my website currently with more content...need more traffic .

I had a quick question...most affiliate programs ask you questions like "Is your minimum site traffic 500 or more"? So should I wait for more likes on my blogs before I register with other affiliate programs?

Hello Nandini (lovely name)
Most if not all affiliate programs will ask you if your site receives lots of visitors. You don't actually have to give them any definite number.
After all they are never going to know if you don't tell them.
So if you fancy joining a particular program then don't let this put you off ok.
Here are two web pages with some of the top affiliate programs for this year you might like to have a look at.
