Hi all. I am really trying to build a business through WA. I can see the merit of using the tool and the advantage of utilising the combined skills of the WA community. I have been trying to develop my own website to the point where it is attracting traffic that I can monetize without reverting to building a website around WA. I have been going for almost 12 months and while I am enjoying the experience, I am wondering if 30 to 40 hits a day can be deemed successful? No monetary rewards yet but
Something happened to my previous blog so I am having to rewrite it.One of the things relating to building a website I have learned in my year at WA is it takes a lot of work and subsequently time to become successful.

We are constantly reminded that Google will use good quality content as ranking criteria. My question is how can a machine or a computer assess quality.

I now come to realise this is not a short term process. I am really enjoying the huge learning curve for me anyway. The way WA helps you through is a major reason for me hanging in there. However my goalposts have shifted somewhat, if I can get my website ranked in Google within 6 months I will deem that to be a success. if I can start earning an income within 12 months, no matter what, that will also be a huge success.
