About Rufat
Joined October 2013
Hi Everyone! My name is Rufat. I've started online marketing over 10 years ago and I had my first website abouttrip.com for hotel reservations back in 2001. I worked on it for 2 years and started making a decent income, but then I stopped it. Now I'm back to online marketing and I'm very happy to find WA and my special thanks to Nathaniell. Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate I'm now making money and my business is growing.

Hi Rufat. Hope you are well.
A little advice please. Mind a little foggy here. In the initial stages of working through the Affiliate Bootcamp courses and have reached the stage where I need to get myself a domain. Now these bootcamp courses are all about promoting Wealthy Affiliate, am I right ? So why do I have to choose a niche, surely Wealthy Affiliate will be the niche ? Or not?
Would appreciate some guidance here re promoting WA.

Hi Roy,

There are two ways you can build a business:

1. You can choose a niche based on your passion, for example you can promote books, computers, iphone or anything else. In this case you follow this training ( WA Certification Course) 2. You can promote WA. This will be your niche. In this case you will follow this training ( Bootcamp) Please let me know if everything is clear for you?

Hi Rufat. Hope you are well. I'm skipping along quite nicely here. Have just learned how to place images on my pages. Very exciting. But I tell you one thing, On my 'About Me' page I invited folk to email me and share what they think about what I've said on my pages, negative and positive. Haven't had a single msg. Should I have an email address on those pages at this stage, Rufat?
Reply
rufat Premium
Can you please be more specific and explain exactly what happened? Getting comments or email is not the same thing. Give me the address of your page.
Reply
RoyBaxter Premium
Sorry Rufat, I meant comments. But thinking about it, I have had one comment and that's when I requested it. And I suppose that if I went to specific people like I do with you, then they might comment, as you have done in the past? Am at a stage now where I have just learnt how to add images to my pages, so maybe I'm getting ahead of myself in the training. Things will fall into place as I train ?!

rufat Premium
Yes, just follow the training and everything will become clear over time. If you have some specific question then post it inside WA or ask me and I will do my best to help you.

Hi Rufat:
Im looking for tuition (paid, of course) to improve the look of my sites..
Ive seen yours which looks rather professional.
Im practically a newbie, thats why I need personal help to improve quickly.
Could you be interested? I was thinking of some e-mailed lessons at a comfortable pace and compatibly with your schedule.
Im giving you address of my sites so that you can see if there is something you can and want to do:
thesummerlawns.com
paleobodybuildingraining.com
Thank you

Hi Phil,

Your sites look great and I'm not a big specialist in web design to be honest. If I need something specific I go to Fiverr. Also, a friend of mine Dom Wells, has launched a very high quality membership program with many advanced strategies including changing website look. I'm affiliated with his team and can tell you honestly you can learn a lot of stuff from him.

Regarding helping you personally, I'm very sorry but I'm very busy with my business and can't help you. And I'm not big specialist in web design. If you decide to join Dom's team you can join them directly without clicking on my affiliate link. Make sure to ask questions from Dom before you join so you can know for sure that this program is exactly what you are looking for.

Rufat, may I please tap your brain ,yet again? Have reached a stage in my training where I am working on Course 2 - Lesson 1 : Building My Own Traffic Producing Website. It states that I need to have my own Domain. Need to purchase it . Then need to transfer the content from my current SiteRubix.com to my Own domain. Now, I don't really have any content on my SiteRubix website except for the name of my website, the Policy Page, and the About Me Page. Home and a couple of other contentless pages also appear on the menu at the top of the website. Is it at all possible for you to take a look at my SiteRubix website, Rufat? Guide me on what should be there and what shouldn't? Don't want to go ahead and do the wrong thing ie. pay out money to purchase something which I don't yet need. Would really appreciate you taking a look if that is possible. Thank you. Roy.

Name of website is:
telly-belly.siterubix.com

Hi Roy,

I like your website. It looks very good. I think you better remove privacy policy from the main menu and put it in the sidebar or in the footer. I recommend to buy a domain name because when you start writing content for your website your content will start get indexed and ranked by Google. Premium domains rank much faster and higher than free domains like siterubix. You can buy a domain and then move your existing site to a new domain. Or you can delete an old site and create a new one once you have your new premium domain. Either way is possible.

RoyBaxter Premium
Thanks for your time, Rufat, and your advice. I have bought a domain . Have a challenge in that they have given me a link to verify my email address and when I click on it, it's saying, "Sorry, this verification link no longer valid due to one of the following: a) it has already been verified. b) It has expired or has been cancelled . Any pending contact change that is cancelled is no longer subject to verification. Not sure what that is all about?! Also not sure at this stage how to transfer the private policy page from the main menu to the sidebar or the footer. Also, moving the existing site to a new domain ?? So much to learn hey Rufat !!!
Small steps. All good experience ! Will get there ! Roy

Hi Roy,

Sorry for the late reply. I lost internet connection. Now I'm back to life:)

I gave you links explaining how to move privacy page to the footer. https://goo.gl/OPyD2Y

Also, I think if you want you can keep privacy policy in your menu. It's fine.


Regarding verification I think you better contact support and ask them about the issue

Regarding moving your website from siterubix to your new domain here is the link that explains how to do it

I'm at the very early stages of building my website. Have just added the Private Policy & About Me pages to the Menu. Now I also have Home/About/Blog/Contact on my menu bar and none of these last 4 have any content. a) Do they need to be there next to my Private Policy & About Me pages, and if not, how do I get rid of them. Would appreciate some guidance.
Reply
rufat Premium
You definitely need to add About me, Contact and Blog to your menu. As for Privacy policy you can put in the sidebar or move to to the bottom of your page. https://goo.gl/OPyD2Y

Hi Rufat, the nuisance again. Would appreciate your help. Have listened to the video explaining how to sort out a Private Policy Page and have a good understanding of what I need to do. However, to start the ball rolling, I need to get to the WA Policy Page part of which I need to copy and paste onto my blank page before I can actually get going. I just can't find out how to get to this page?

Hi Rufat. Still not having any success with placing my image from the computer onto my "About Me" page. Have tried a good few times. Keep getting 129Jpg HTTP error. Confused as to what that means but what I do know that I'm not getting the image on my page. Used that site you suggested to compress the image, but that didn't work. Haven't yet tried changing the jpg to png as I'm not sure how to do this. Nervous that it might do something to the rest of the images I have saved on my pc.
Reply
rufat Premium
Hi Roy,

The last thing I can recommend is to change the name of your file. Or contact support and explain to the them your issue. Here is an image converter https://www.convertmyimage.com/jpg-to-png/

Also, you can post your question within the community. Let me know the outcome.

RoyBaxter Premium
Thanks for the Image Converter converter link, Rufat. Very helpful ! But eventually worked out how to "shrink" my image, and that worked ! A good feeling. As Kyle says - Success is a process. Keep well.

I'm glad you've finally did it. Don't worry Roy. Let me now if you need anything. And always post your question in the community so you can get help quickly.

RoyBaxter Premium
Hi Rufat, wonder if you can help. Or should I be putting my questions out to the whole community ? Not sure how to do this hence me always contacting you and probably getting on your nerves? I've just built an "about me" page as per Kyle's video. Have tried to add my image from my computer pics but can't get it right. Keep being told that there's been an error loading. Is there any way you can actually read my "about me" page? Maybe I have written too much and now don't have enough space for an image ? It asks at the bottom of this message box whether I need community help with my question. Is it good to use this and if so where would I look for a reply from anyone? Thanks for your time and patience. Roy
Reply
rufat Premium
Not a problem Roy! You can contact me anytime. But it would be great if you can post your question too so maybe you can get help from the community faster than I reply. Because sometimes I may be busy and miss your question. As for the image upload your content is not causing an issue. Maybe your image is too big in size. Always compress your images before uploading them. Here is the site https://tinypng.com/

Also when your name your image make sure that you don't have apostrophe in the name of your file. So, it must be like this myfile.jpg

If you make it myfile'.jpg or myfile's.jpg it won't be uploaded.

Sometimes if you can't upload the file then change its extension. For example if you have jpg and can't upload it make it png. There are tons of free sites on Google that you can find to change the extension of your file. Let me know the outcome.

Hi Rufat, just wanted to say hi and to say that I am still here and on the move. Stickability is what it's all about with me. Start something, go hammer and tongs at it, and then as soon as I reach a plateau, I ease off and out. Same thing with losing a little weight for example; start with fire in the belly and steam pumping but then , "Nah, this is too tough!" Determined that I must make WA work !! WA support network will make a huge difference in keeping the enthusiasm going together with a positive , confident attitude. Roy

Rufat. Made my help selection from Fiverr.. Will see. Also, I sent a question 4 times to site support for help. No response! Notified Kyle, and sent him same question. Reply, that he not understand my question. I re-word and send again. No response. PISSED! Any ideas? Maybe, they not like all my questions, and "sending me a message" to leave WA? Maybe they not like my site: "The 911 Conspiracy.net. Maybe,too controversial for them? . Bad for business and Wealthy Affiliate? Me paranoid?? Thank's B

What is your question Brendan? I've never had any issues with site support. They always reply very fast. I had an issue only once in 3 years. Kyle is very busy and gets hundreds of messages every day. The same is with Site Support. They get hundreds of messages every day. You need to ask your question and explain it clearly what you want. Try to explain your issue again and send your message. You can also post your question at WA and get answers and help from other members. You can ask your question in the live chat. Please let me know how it goes so we can help you.

Hi Rufat

Good to meet you on here!

You said to ask if I got stuck :)

I followed the video to add my first 3 web pages (at least I think I did...), but for some reason they do not show on the site. I did this last night, so thought they might appear this morning, but unfortunately not. Can you suggest anything, please?
Reply
rufat Premium
Hi Graham,

Your pages need to be put into your menu to be able to see the links to them

These videos will show you how to do that: Also check out this training from Labman If this is not what you are looking for or does not fix your issue then pls post back.

Hi Rufat. I cannot see my themes on my website, it is still blank. I already save draft and published the about me, getting started, privacy policy and the three themes for my affiliate bootcamp website. on the pages menu. Do I copy it and paste it on the posts menu so I can see it on my website? What am I doing wrong, did I miss something? please advice.
Reply
rufat Premium
Have you set your menu up? Which lesson are you on/referring to?

If the menu is your issue then you need to make sure you have 3 things going on.

1 your pages are published and not still in draft mode http://easywpguide.com/wordpress-manual/saving-and-publishing-content/

2 and 3 You need to have a menu setup and added to the 'Manage locations' http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-add-navigation-menu-in-wordpress-beginners-guide/ because some themes have multiple menu points so WP needs to be told which goes where for it to appear in the appropriate place.

Hi Rufat. Sorry to disturb your weekend. No rush to answer, I just had the questions in my head.

Are there specific advantages buying domains through WA ? I imagine the big one is no hassle to transfer?

Using the free trial on Jaaxy the number of searches are shown for keywords in Google. Is this specifically Google USA, or UK or Global ? Is there any way to use the keyword tool within Premium Membership to measure Geo-Specific results?

Thanks Rufat

Cheers

Des
Reply
rufat Premium
Yes, there is a big advantage to buy here because:

1. No need to transfer
2. It comes with domain privacy

Regarding search results they are global. Regarding geo specific I recommend to ask Kyle via private message. For me I think there is no need to narrow down your market by doing geo specific search. It's better to do it globally to reach more people.
Reply
MalachyDonne Premium
Thanks Rufat, as always.

I only wanted to be geo-specific for one product were I use my own leads for sales and good commissions. I have had my eyes opened by WA regarding Global activity and totally agree with you.

Have a good weekend and thank you for taking time to get back to me.

Cheers. Des

Hi Rufat. Firstly, thank you for all the support. I have tried to publish 3 pages to my site as per the training video but they are not visible on the site. They exist in the dashboard but not on the site. I must have done something wrong at an earlier stage. Can I delete my site and start again? If so, how do I do that? Many Thanks Mal
Reply
rufat Premium
Hi,

I think the only reason is because you didn't add your pages to your site menu and that's why they are not visible. Here is the way to follow:

Make sure that:

1. Your pages are published and not still in draft mode http://easywpguide.com/wordpress-manual/saving-and-publishing-content/

2. and 3. You need to have a menu setup and added to the 'Manage locations' http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-add-navigation-menu-in-wordpress-beginners-guide/ because some themes have multiple menu points so WP needs to be told which goes where for it to appear in the appropriate place.

Also check out this training from Labman https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/carson/blog


I think there is no need to delete your website. If you anyway you want to delete it then go to Site Manager - then choose the site you want to delete and click on the "Details" and scroll down until you see the button that says: Delete this website. See images 1,2, 3.



If this is not what you are looking for or does not fix your issue then pls post back.

Hi Melanie. Not a problem. We all have been at this point. WA training is geared primarily towards people wanting to sell products online. If you mean you plan to sell physical products then I think you can sell your products through eBay. We have some members that have a good experience at selling through eBay and they can help you in that. I think you better follow the training here to understand how online business works. I'm not sure if you have access to "private message" function as a free member. If you do have then you can contact this member who can help you with eBay.

Hi Josh,

It's always preferable that you choose a niche that you have lots of knowledge about. Later when you achieve some success with your first niche you can start your second niche too. This way will be more productive I think.

I want to have people to advertise my products, I am setting up an affiliate program where people will be able to sign in and earn 5-15 percent commission when they make a sale.

I managed to find a plugin that allows me to do so but, I was unable to create links and banners of my products.

Hi Again Rufat! I'm sorry to bother you again. Here's my dilemma..My background is in entertainment..Working for Walt Disney World for so many years, I know performing and all the backstage happenings that guests never see! As far as writing, or reviewing my interests are anything from vocal technique, to fashion, make-up, song writing, travel, inspiration, and memoires of my life as a princess who fell and got back up...How do you channel a topic?

I think you can choose any topic that you've mentioned. All of this can be monetized. Choose the topic and promote Amazon products relevant to your topic.
