Hi WA family,So... As part of the new Super Affiliate program one thing that has become apparent is that we all need to up our game on Wealthy Affiliate blogging. In the past, for me at least, blogging's been the kind of thing I have only done when I feel inspired to do so. So my immediate response to a definitive blogging schedule is that it seems to me to feel a little too 'structured' - and not so spontaneous as I my psyche prefers! I guess it's the creative in me that doesn't like to be bou

Wow. What a lovely surprise to wake up to. This morning I turn on my laptop and up pops a window announcing that I am now a Wealthy Affiliate Ambassador. I am both amazed and truly flattered.For me being an active person at Wealthy Affiliate is all part of the enjoyment of WA membership. I love the community spirit and that we all help and learn from each other... and long may it continue.

Time and time again I've seen websites across the internet that fall foul of some critical design and usability issues. Whilst the owners' intentions are good, they fail to address the need of the reader.So, I thought it about time that I put finger to keypad and highlight ten mistakes that webmasters should look to avoid.1. Too many gadgets and embellishmentsIt's easy to keep adding widgets, buttons, bells and whistles to your website, especially the sidebar, but it can be confusing for the re

Like many of us here at Wealthy Affiliate, I am passionate about getting the good word out there about this wonderful program we have. I don't know bout you guys, but I find that Twitter is probably my most productive referrer so I always make sure that I am tweeting regularly throughout the day - and night! I know you can 'over-tweet' but I'm find that it is certainly paying dividends.So I have a great plugin called Tweet Wheel 'Queues' automating all of my posts on all of my sites - both day

Let's be honest... most of us skim content on a website. But research shows that 90% of website visitors who actually read the main title of a page or post will also read the call-to-action of the page. That's significant and we need to be sure we're making the most of it!The content of the call-to-action is a big part of this. A typical mistake of content writers is to only include one call-to-action (CTA) - i.e. the piece of content that we want the reader to take having consumed the content.

In this post I take a look at how Internet ‘optimisation’ fits into the marketer's overall digital marketing mix. Ladies and gentlemen... I introduce you to the 5S's of Internet Optimisation...Story optimisationMany of you will already know about how we should always ‘sell’ the benefits of a product or service - and not simply promote the features alone. We often talk about “selling the sizzle”... to quote “It’s the ‘sizzle’ that sells

Ever heard of Klout? Klout – – is a useful tool that allows bloggers and social networkers to gauge their social impact. It does this by giving us all a score of between 1 and 100 (1 being exceptionally poor, 100 being fantastic), by ascertaining the engagement of our various posts, tweets, Facebook Likes, pins, retweets, reposts, etc. etc.Time to lose that personality! At first glance, Klout could look like a way to boost one's ego and self esteem and claim bragging r

Well that was relatively straight-forward. My new site is live and my new niche established. And I have to say, the site is starting to look pretty good. I've used one of the free themes available in Wealthy Affiliate (the free Rara theme) and I'm pretty happy with it.Having already completed the Certification course, I can see that there are a lot of echoes between these bootcamp courses and the certification courses, but they are obviously more honed to Affiliate Marketing promotion. In my op

Well, it took some some time but I'm glad to report that I have just finished the final lesson on the final course in the certification. It only took me two years! Actually, those reading this who are early on in the certification courses, don't be disheartened by this length of time... I took an 18 month sabbatical so it was nearer 3 - 6 months to complete, and even that was at an extremely leisurely pace! I would guess those who are focused and committed could do this in much less time.So, lo
