About RSchamp
Joined November 2014
Hello. My name is Robert. I have been in the restaurant industry on and off for about forty years or so. I have three girls and a boy, who have given me nine grandchildren! Also, for just about the same amount of time, I have been a songwriter and musician. At the moment, I have two other partners and we have a studio in Tuscon, Arizona. We post our music online in four different websites designed for music. Music has been a very big and rich part of my life. If at any time someone wants to talk about music or hear what we write, let me know.

I really do not want to ease back into the restaurant industry. I have truly had enough of it. It seems to be leaning more and more toward the younger generation. And that's okay.

They can have it. Since what I've heard about WA has been pretty much all good, I thought I would try this. I don't expect anything to be handed to me. I don't mind working hard for what comes my way. Been doing that my entire life!

One thing that seems to be missing in people these days is work ethic. I do have a work ethic. And I hope my work ethic will be rewarded here.

Robert, Thanks for your critique. I went to your Coffee site, (I love coffee), It's a very nice and friendly site. There is a lot of information there I was completely unaware of. Well done.

I tried to leave a comment, but I couldn't see how to do it. I don't know if I am just blind (highly probable) or you chose not to have a contact section. It is still a nice site. I pray you Joy and Great Fortune. J

Very nice concept. Keep up the good work. The only thing I can say about your layout is that it is a bit too faint. And that makes it harder on 55+ eyes. Also, when you set up your Privacy Policy, you will need to use a Yahoo or gmail acount for your email on that page. Good luck to you with your very good niche!

Welcome to Wa Robert, I am not exactly sure what you mean by goal conversions but I do know that if you do not have a goal then you will not hit it? My first goal was to learn the training and how to build the foundation which was my website. From there I could start a business. I am still learning. You have gifts, talents and 40 years of experience. I think I would incorporate that into everything here and make your business YOURS!

Can anyone tell me, in layman's terms, what value goal conversions has to me? To anyone?
Reply
GFHaze Premium
Robert,

If you are talking Goal Conversions in Google Analytics that is to help you keep track of what is working and what may need some help to get it to work.

In simple terms if you put a link that you want folks to click on into your "Goal Conversions" you will know when someone has followed that particular path or funnel.

here is a video from Jay that explains the process for you;
Tracking Affiliate Goals in Analytics

I hope this helps, my best,

Gary

Thanks Gary...I've been playing with it and am beginning to see that it is a tool to weed out what works and what doesn't. One of my sites seems to be fairly balanced, with people browsing me from all over the world. The other, unless I am completely misled, seems to have all its traffic from two users...in Russia...period! Ha ha! Better get that one figured out in a HURRY!
Reply
GFHaze Premium
Robert,

The ones you are talking about from Russia, I hope you did not click on their links to check them out? If you did more may appear from links.

Were any of them the following;
forum.topic49940196.darodar.com / referral,cenoval.ru
hulfingtonpost.com, blackhatworth.com / referral, ilovevitaly.co / referral

You can remove these from your results slowly, by filtering them out with Analytics. You need to go into Admin at the top then to the far right and select Filters, from there you can create filters to meet your needs for the various URL's.

It will take time for the results to even out but it does work, those sites raised my Bounce rate from below 1% to 13% over a month I have now got that down below 4% once again.

I hope this helps if you need more of an explenation drop me a note back, my best,

Gary

Robert, thanks for the follow and back atcha. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You have just found the right place to learn all there is to know about this online marketing community and how to build a highly successful business.
Just remember, this is a marathon race, not a short sprint.
So just have in mind that this online business success is not only going to take a lot of hard work from you but also dedication and plenty of time as you cannot become successful in a day or two.
Don't be in a hurry for success. Just do things right the first time around and success will meet you the harder you work.
Follow Kyle's videos and instructions and if you get stuck....well.......that is what the community is for! Just ask and you will receive everyone’s help each other out because we all care!

Robert, 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 Robert.

Thanks Kyle. My analytics stats are improving every week. Bounce rate dropping by about 10%. Page views up almost 300%. Returning= 70.4%. new= 20.6%. Sometimes I get stuck but figure it out. Have a google+ page for gourmet coffee on google first page #3. No sales yet so just keep plugging away. New site for Bootcamp is kinda different. Still doing both trainings and trying to formulate an efficient way to work each day and not miss anything. coffeeadvice2.com and
1worldwidewa.com if you want to have a look. While you're over there
maybe buy some coffee...lol...the Costa Rican Tarrazu is excellent!!

Going back into the studio after Christmas with my group, "the differenz"

What isn't working for you? Your site looks fine to me. The only thing I feel that you could improve upon is the theme choice.

Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

There are over 2,400 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

Hello RSchamp, Thank you for following me. Every time someone clicks my “Follow Me” link, I jump and think I need to step on the gas with my internet building program. This really does feel good when people I don’t know are pushing me, and pushing me, and pushing me. This week, I have prioritized some important work, painting the exterior of my home and securing a some key information to develop traffic. Yahoo, yahoo, yahoo, it took me a couple of days, but, I HAVE MY INFO. The house… it still needs painting. I am looking forward to generating Boo Coo traffic, soon. I only need a few landing pages, a few other things, and I’m gone! My super-duper advice to you is, put a smile on your face, jump into building your internet business, enjoy the training, enjoy the WA community, always ask for help or direction, and hang on to your successful journey. You’re going to love it. AAFitch

Hey, IMstranger...just noticed your post. Thanks. Right now I am in massive frustration over Google+ authorship. I seem to have taken the proper steps, but no luck getting it set up! Is it supposed to be that hard? When I get to the rich snippet tool with a page, I get tons of error messages I don't understand. I have been asking for help, but the help is more confusing and all different...help...
