About Schwifty
Joined September 2017
Started a little over a year ago on WA. I run a few sites and have a lot of SEO experience. I spend way to much time working on a computer and would eventually love to reach this passive income everyone raves about. lol, it's not passive. It's a lot of work.

My biggest site is https://www.thesmartconsumer.com/ Yes I do accept Guests, just reach out to me with your idea. I also am always looking for people that need content.

Too many people are unwilling to share and work together, the more of us that help each other the greater the chance of us becoming successful. Even the biggest sites here are small compared to the big boys. So reach out to me and lets work together on something.

Schwifty, your website is awesome! I just joined WA and was really hoping to be able to begin to make some money after a few months. I feel it probably will take me about three months to get something up, running and producing. But, it sounds like it will take longer (hmmm).
Schwifty Premium
three months is a good goal if you spend a couple hours a day on it.

I want to thank you, Martin, for having me be a part of your network and delighted to have you in my network as well. I hope all is working out well with your online business and wish you much success in fulfilling all of your personal and financial goals.

You're right; working together helps everyone involved. Fortunately, it seems that everyone on WA works together an' encourages each other. WA is definitely a wonderful place to find that freedom an' independence.

I surely wish you the greatest good fortune as you build your business an' in alla' your endeavors, moving forward.

Hi Martin and thank you for following. I am of course delighted to follow you in return.

Hi Martin,
I noticed that you’re following me. Thanks so much for that. I hope and pray for your success here at WA. I’m wondering if we could do each other a favor? Could we possibly exchange a comment on a recent post, on each other’s website? I know time is precious, so I certainly understand if the timing is not the best for you. Anyway, if you’re able, here’s the post I need a comment on: https://howtoloveelementary.com/why-do-i-feel-like-a-child/
Please send me a link to your most recent post and I’ll add a comment for you. A warm thanks to you in advance.

I know exactly what your talking about.
I had to really keep myself as conscious as possible of the time I was at my computer. If I didn't set an alarm on my phone I would spend anywhere from 4 to 10+ hours working on my sites. I loved doing SEO and seeing the traffic I was getting. That was several years ago and I am hoping things work out for me this time around. Good luck to you with all of your endeavors online.

Hello Martin (Schwifty) and thank you for the follow... I have followed you back.
Good to know you are SEO savvy and I may well come looking for advice at sometime as I have no experience whatsoever.
I will go have a look at your biggest site once I finish typing this message.
Best wishes and I hope you achieve the passive income you are looking for.

Hi Schwifty following you right back and will be checking out your website.
I will have to post mine on my bio its about vitamins to help us live longer and healthier.
I haven't done too much on my site lately and need to add some ads have been busy fixing my home and still have a lot more to do but making progress.
Also summer is a busy time for me.

I notice you have only done up to lesson # 2 also , I have to finish # 3 and the rest of the lessons what's your reason for not finishing working on something else ?

Anyway all the best and I will be checking out yourv site and you can check out mine !
Let's try to finish lesson 5 !!! 😜
Schwifty Premium
I'm not using the site for lessons, Occasionally I may look up stuff.
Johnpavich Premium
I notice your site has a lot of affiliate marketing so you have done all 5 lessons already ?
Wayne66 Premium
Good evening, my time, Schwifty and thanks for adding me to your network. It's my pleasure to add you to mine as well.

Perhaps WA's training will be able to help you tweek a few things and take your websites to the next level.

You're right, you will have to work for that passive income, (you knew that thought, you've been at this for a while), but once you get there you will already know it was worth the effort,

All the best as you continue this journey and I look forward to connecting form time to time.

Keep Moving Forward,

I really like your icon. I used to grow these in Florida. They helped feed the squirrels after Hurricane Charlie. I am just a beginner so I really am not very knowledgeable yet. I have been doing the bootcamp it has taught me a lot. If you are already doing it keep going. Success is where we are going.

MForstner Premium
Thank for the follow Schwifty.

There's a part in your profile that made me laugh. " lol, it's not passive. It's a lot of work." That's so true! It all takes so much time to set up and put together.

It amazes me how much time I spend just trying to keep in step with all the constant updates on various programs.


telterri Premium
Thank you Schwifty, I pray I will be a success at this, I feel very confident that I will be. Patience is not one of my better ventures, so I hope it fly before I die...out and move on to something else! I am more than willing to help when and if I can, I am just getting started and not confident enough yet to offer help as I am hungry for knowledge myself. But who knows I might be your David! Let me know!
willfedor Premium
I hear you Truth is the only thing holding me back is the word press website never been able to get my head around it so i would use wix or some other platform but then all my add on programs would not work this is the first sight I have found that is making me do it from scratch and step by step no missing gaps great to know you have been here for around a year builds confidence disappointing to hear you haven't made money yet ? why is that?
Schwifty Premium
if you have hard time with word press i would recommend adding beaver builder
willfedor Premium
thanks do you happen to know a plugin like oberlo like the one used for shopify ?

Peace and blessings, Schwifty!

Great picture! Thanks for the follow. I followed back.

I will definitely be needing content about my niche, which is baby carriers, down the road because there's not too much to write about baby carriers to keep the subject fresh.

I do have a great article that also contains the history of them, but I have been wondering how I'm going to be able to regularly write new content.

Thanks for your willingness to help others!

Schwifty Premium
just send me a message when and ill do one. thanks

Hello Schwifty how are you doing today? I am glad to hear from you. I see from your accomplishments that you have been a member of the wealthy affiliate community since 2017 great job.

I am looking at the picture of your profile, that is pretty cool. I am glad that you are following me and when I finish writing this down I'll be clicking on the button to follow you too.

I find it really amazing how fast time is going by. I will be 53 June 16 of this year and I find that the older I get the time goes faster it seems every year.

I see that you spend a lot of time on the computer, that is something that we all have to do to start this business and I hope as we progress we get to spend less time on the computer and more time doing what we really want to do in life.

I hope you have a great day and get to spend more quality time with your loved ones in the very near future. I wish you all the best.
jjrieck Premium
Thanks for the follow Martin and I am following you back. I am very new to all this and would not be a help to you at the moment but when I have been working on this for a couple years, I would definitely be willing to share a project with you. I agree that sharing the work would lighten everyone's load. I have bookmarked your website and will contact you with an idea when I am ready. You sound like you are doing very well already and I wish you the best for all your online businesses.

Hoping someone knows about BING. I have been trying to figure out what happened to my traffic and it's BING. As of almost a year ago now I got deindexed by BING. I just found out a couple of weeks ago.

About a year ago I started getting hit with spam links and they still are coming in today. I have been disavowing with Google often, but only updated with Bing a few times. I went ahead and just updated the list with Bing a couple of weeks ago.

I contacted them to see if it was an error, nope its not. Will they tell me anything else, nope. I cannot figure out why Bing will not index my site.

My site is over 10 years old and was always indexed on Bing up until last year.

Any ideas, my site is thesmartconsumer ( it is a dot com site) not posting the link just so I don't get accused of spammy again.

Hi Martin and thank you for the follow - also following you back.

Loved your profile bio - especially your words "would eventually love to reach this passive income everyone raves about . . . LOL its not passive - its a lot of work"!

AH YES, you have worked this out rather quickly, I gather?

All I can respond with is that its more fun and being on the WA platform, only adds to that :)

BUT yes, it is hard work! Writing is hard work, let alone writing content for a specific niche

NWTDennis Premium
Hello Martin ... thank you for the follow. Your SEO experience will serve you well here at WA.

Not sure Affiliate Marketing can be classified as "passive income". It certainly isn't in the beginning. AM is simple ... but it's not easy. The learning curve is too steep. As you have stated ... there's a lot of work.

Once a website has been developed and becomes cash positive the active content writing can be outsourced, but there's still a certain amount of editorial management to assure quality content is getting posted.

So I'm just not sure AM is really a source of passive income.
BlueJasmin Premium
Hi! Thank you for following.

Love your pineapple! Very catchy. Very original.

I like your style: brief, "squeaky" and right to the point. You have a personality. A lot of people don't. To read their posts is soooooooo boring!

Also, it feels that you are a subject matter expert and have passion! That's kind of people I want in my network. GREAT!

I will follow you and we will talk soon.

Schwifty Premium
I am accepting Guest Posting on my Site. Backlinks have been proven to help build rankings and increase traffic. I have two sites, I will not post the links here due to not wanting to break Spam rules. One site can take almost any topic and the other is about guns, holsters, weapons. Message or Email me if interested. This is not a self-promotion, I am offering to post your content to help your site. Please do not post any site links in response to this. thank you

Good evening to you, Martin, my name is Ken and I'm glad your here and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. I'm ready to share content with you to make both of us successful. Don't forget about the Live video training every Friday night at 7 pm CDT. You'll love it.
I'm looking forward to working with you and helping us both achieve success. I wish you much satisfaction in your online journey.

Great to meet you. I checked out your site, looks good. What plugin are you using for your table? I prefer the one you use to the one I use, hence my curiosity. Here's to much more success online, thanks for connecting and happy to return the follow.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

It's good to see you making a go of WA. I look forward to seeing you ranking in the top few hundred soon. Stick with it. It's worth it in the long run!

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day! I'm now a member of the 2020 Super Affiliate Challenge. I'll see it through to the end, and I'll be at the Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference next year.

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

Best wishes,
Be Happy!

Hi Schwifty, thank you for the follow and i am also following you now.

I too would love to realize the dream of "passive income" as they put it. Wishing you the very best of luck as you get closer to realizing it with each effort.

I love the idea of working together, so i will definitely be in touch soon to discuss this possibility.

t's nice to read something like that, I'm starting and I'm still working hard, for example 12 hours on a construction site in Finland, and I'm from Poland, my name is Krzysztof, but it's easier for Kris. I break down to talk, because the goal is to change my life clearly, and the whole community is friendly but I can not do it with everyone yet, I was stuck but I had to come to terms with this feeling and move on because everything is to go. I bought a domain but I have not yet built a website on a free domain, because I do not know how to put pictures and installing the world press did not work, and come here in WA I do not have photos in this catalog? so I'm going back to the lesson to catch what I missed :)
Best wishes, Kris
gmcwilliam Premium
Hi Martin and thank you for following me. You can generate a passive income online if you follow this proven strategy; work through the training and complete all the tasks before moving on to the next lesson, ask questions of the WA community when you need answers, write great content for your website and focus on your long-term goals. Best wishes with your online endeavours, Gary
wendyg53 Premium
I agree about sharing and helping. I'm also a content writer. Although, right now my teaching job has to take priority until I retire in 2 years. I would definitely be interested in paying someone to write some of the content that I need. I'm so glad to have a like-minded person in my network. :-)
JohnDZ Premium
Thank you for the follow, Martin.

At the moment I am just trying to get the feel of things. I never worked on WordPress before and had a few stumbling blocks and started over too many times.

So I guess I am in my testing fase and about 4 months here at WA.

I can say that the results I had so far (learning here at WA and with the help of the community) really outweighs any of my previous attempts in trying to host a website just in terms of my keywords being at least indexed in the search engines.

I now know how important consistency is. Yet, I am still miles away from writing as often as needed.

I had a look at your site and I am impressed. Do you use some API to keep things updated and does it work of a database like SQL?

I never done these type of things before.

I agree about sharing once you have the knowledge and what better place than WA where mostly everyone wants to learn.

All the best to you, Martin.

JonathanAll1 Premium
Welcome to WA. It’s participation and persistence to get there and also takes a lot of creative thought to process...
Yes, thank you for following. And I am hungry to get started.
I am finding so much information for goals to success. This is surely a great opportunity with just what I need to develop independence and dreams.
Yes, www is a big world brought together with WA...
I’m just following my heart... if you’re into books, this will work out. Giving it time to sink in.

Truly grateful, thanks for the launch 🚀

Thank you for the follow, I'll return the favor. Like your concept of working together. My passion is woodcarving, and photography. I've been working on a site in the bootcamp. Then it hit me there is more to life than just making more money. So now I'm building a site about what I'm excited about. Perhaps enough people will like my site, and interact enough to give me both money, and my love for sharing my passion.
Karnobat Premium
Hi schwifty,
First of all big thanks to follow me here. Love this mentality of working together I am here for 3month and learn a lot here. But still needs to learn a lot. I am in the adult industrie niche more specified branded adult toys and Organic erotic massage products. If we can mean something for each other just let me know I would love to here your exprrience.

Hi Schwifty,

Your site you mentioned looks interesting. I will have to get back to it when I am finished with my training. With each seasoned and experienced member's sites and posts I read about I am aware of how grateful I am to be able to learn from you all.

Robert-A Premium
Hello Martin And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 480+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

Once again, thanks!

I agree, not enough people share and work together but that's one of the things I love about WA so far. I may just be one of those that reach out for content ;)

CajunTom Premium
I forgot to compliment you this morning on your Smart Consumer Web site. That is something I plan on doing too. I'm thinking I will use a side list of links as opposed to a bunch of pictures to scroll through. I'm thinking that won't be as busy, but may be wrong. When the time comes I would like to get your ideas.
Schwifty Premium
thank you. I would just pick a niche instead of what I have going on. My site has way too many topics. Im ready to work on a small niche myself
parkavehelen Premium
Wow, what a great website Schwifty. it certainly has a little something for everyone.

I wanted to thank you for following me and to let you know that I am following you now as well.

I'll have to come back and spend more time on your site.

Great success to you!
