I was wondering is there a way to add a link on a photo in a WP gallery? I have recipe pictures on my website but the link option in the WP Editor does not allow me to link the actual image to the recipe page. I have to create a separate page and link a TITLE to beneath the gallery on the recipe page.

smartketeer Premium
Literally speaking any image can be linked ...

See this However, if you are using a given gallery plugin (that generates the source code for your gallery) you'll have to alter the automatically generated code

I am using a gallery. The images are neatly organized, and I was hoping that I could put the Link in the gallery instead indvidually on the page. When I do that the images are all over the place.

Another question that can't be solved remotely :(

It's a plugin- and theme dependent/related issue. Have you tried to ask the plugin developer?

Hi Michael,

Yes of course, there are paid ads on Facebook. But I hate any form of paid ads, so I don't really know how they work on Facebook.

I'd suggest you to launch an open question here at WA. I'm pretty sure that there are many members who are using paid ads.

Sorry :(

Hi, is all well? I need your help. Within the space of eight months I starts to add training, and it dissappaired before my eyes.

The fiorst time I thought I over did the task or the application.

last evening I wrote the title and the introduction to the training. It went!
I do not have an image, neither does the training require an image.

Please tell me how I must go at it.

Greetings Smartketeer! I hope this finds you well. Thank you so much for all the extra training you have here it has really helped me immensely during my first few months here at WA.

I was wondering if I could ask you to teach me another thing or point me in the direction where I can learn how to use these icon sheets and edit them also if they have text.

I have always wanted to use these icons for so any different things. I haven't a clue how to. Many of them have dotted lines around them like a coloring book would for cutouts. What's up with that?? And some are so close together. I have a subscription to envato and there are so many cool things to use there. Would you help me?

If I need Adobe Illustrator or a program to use these could you suggested one.

Thank you so much for everything! All my best! Heidi

smartketeer Premium
I don't really understand your question Heidi ...

What is your actual goal? What do you mean by "icon sheet"? Usually, an icon can be used/displayed as any other image (if the format is compatible PNG or JPEG) ... And if you downloaded an archive or collection that contains several icons, you simply need to extract/save/convert each icon to be used as a stand-alone image ... Your screenshot seems to be a simple "sample" image that shows all the icons that can be found in a given archive.
Reply
Camper67 Premium
Hello! I apologize for not explaining it well. I refer to the whole attachment as an icon sheet, I didn't know what else to call it. Graphics sheet?
I would like to use them as heading images. The part I have been wanting to learn is how to use them as a stand-alone image. I have the file format you mention, it was just too big to send here so I sent a screenshot (Imagine if I didn't lol!)
Thank you again!! Heidi

Firstly thank you for the excellent training. I have a question that I hope you can answer.
Is there any plugin or program that highlights compatibility issues with plugins and WordPress. For example if a plugin causes problems with your website that this is pick up and it tells you the exact problem.

Hie, Smartketeer! Hope your weekend is going well.

This is BlueJ and I really need your help if you can. I have a few questions and it seems I cannot find the answer:

1. How many general posts should I publish before adding a product review and/or an affiliate link? I am absolutely not in a hurry. I just want to know to do the things right out of the gate.

2. Each post should target one keyword/keyphrase, otherwise, Google will punish us. But in a course of natural writing, many combinations (you can see it from Jaaxy!) might consist of other keywords naturally. How not to make an impression that I am "stacking" a post with different keywords or phrases?

3. When it is a proper time start linking internal posts and keep readers on your website?

4. What is the approximate conversion ratio between number of clicks vs number of people who take action and number of real buyers? Is it 10-3-1 or something different? I am doing my reverse engineering planning and would love to know that ratio to be realistic and plan my actions accordingly.

Thank you so much in advance! I would sincerely appreciate your help!!! YOU ARE THE BEST!

smartketeer Premium
Hi Nella,

1. It's your choice. You can start right with product reviews if you want, you can have only reviews or posts, etc. It's your site and you are the boss. Similarly, you can add your aff links from the very beginning or after creating a certain number of posts or reviews ... I like the former scenario because the latter one requires more work ...

2. You need one main keyword and if you have enough content you can use 1-2 secondary keywords too. The recommended keyword density is between 0.5 - 2.5% (keywoed frequency vs total word count). A higher ratio could be seen as keyword stuffing (even for one single keyword)

3. From the very beginning ... Your second review/post can be linked to the first one, etc (if they are connected of course)

4. There is no golden ratio here ... You'll see many opinions and figures, but the truth is that every niche, marketing avenue/method, product etc will generate different results. Even the same product can have different results depending on your post layout, the position of your clickable elements, the marketing copy of your actual CTA, etc.

Hi Smartketeer,
I’m still brand new to WA and internet marketing in general. I’m struggling to see where my success would be... is in blogging? or should I be focusing on affiliate marketing? or should I find a specific product to sell? All very overwhelming at first, hopefully I’ll be able to find my niche and move forward with that. If I go for blogging how would that generate an income.... all very confusing at this point. I’m just working through the training and hopefully things will become more clear.

your website reflects your niche. Your blog on your website provides helpful informative information your audience wants to receive. Your blob draws traffic to your site. Traffic = income.
Affiliate Marketing to your audiences provides you a commission on sales. You can sell your own products, but those take time to develop. So the answer to your question is you will be doing all of those things. Concentrate on affiliate marketing. WA is one of the best programs because it provides a high commission and long term passive income. Conscentrate on building your website. That is the results you will have when you complete Lesson 1. Then complete the Entrepreneur Certification. Compete the tasks at the end of each lesson. When you have your certificate work on the BootCamp. Step by step. Don't do what I did and try to rush through the training. Doing so will end in frustration.

Thanks for your help. I was getting very discouraged not being able to see any light at the end of the tunnel...It seems a little clearer to me now. I’ve set up my website but it is sitting there very empty at the moment. So I get it I should write s blog relating to my niche that I’ve selected...I’m still not too sure how people are going to find me there and how this would eventually bring in an income, but I’ll keep on with the training maybe it will become clearer as I get in further. Thanks again for your valuable advices

Thank you . I look forward to continue my eMarketing Career, which also began in 1998. After my first fiasco, I went back to
Network Marketing my first part time business, and haven't really looked back. I did take some time off after a serious car accident
in 2001. I truly love Internet Marketing and the potential it has to change anyone's life, regardless of their current situation, as long as they are willing to learn, and do whatever it takes to achieve their goals.

I believe that WA is the perfect vehicle to get anyone where ever they want to be in their business.

Hello Zed the Smartketeer

I am getting clicks and impressions so far from my posts and ads from reports and various dashboard sites. I want to see it as a good thing cos I realise at least my posts are getting some attention. So am I right to look at it that way?
Reply
smartketeer Premium
Yes ... The first step in mmaking money is to get visitors = traffic to your site ... However, that's not enough ... Having a 77% bounce rate isn't good ... The point: getting visitors is one thing and making them to engage with your content and eventually to purchase things is another thing ... For that you need valuable, helpful content, well-converting products, etc

I don't want to go down the road of using mailchimp / aweber / sumome

I was looking through your training and didn't see any in relation to email plugins.

Is there any that you recommend?

HI 2 you,

In regards to the material and lessons, here at WA, I'm currently on the section adding images and was looking forward to this section.

As much as I've watched Kyle's video, read, wrote notes and started to put some images into a few pages, I've got be honest and say I'm a little confused with what images out there I can use without infringing on copyright regulations.

My niche business model will include all things, hobbies, interests to entertainment and anything to do indoors (HI2Entertainment.com). The scope of what I can include is brilliant but Kyle has already advised me to not overwhelm myself and maybe start with just "indoor gaming", which can be anything from board, video, dice, cards etc.

I'll want to feature screenshots, videos and box covers of games but don't know if I can. Based on what I've understood I've either got get permissions for every image, become an affiliate with a site or company in order to receive a collection of images or use my own camera or smartphone. Even if I took a photo of a game box with my camera, tarted it up in Photoshop and included it, wouldn't it still be copyrighted?

It's a minefield. How have you got on at this section and importantly can you give any advice on what I can use without consequence, as I'll need good access to the above.
Reply
smartketeer Premium
As you said, is a minefield ...

I'm creating my own images in Photoshop, but they are not brand related ...

The only bulletproof way: the creatives offered for affiliates ...

You own shots could work, but those could contain copyrighted brand names, etc ...

I have two questions.
1. When I am editing one of my sites the dashboard is very narrow. Not so with the other sites. How do I widen the dashboard?

2. Do keywords pertain to a site or can you have different pages with different keywords and even different niches? Is it practical to be promoting health supplements and link to another page in the blog to a WA blog. Sometimes when I write a blog I will say something link if you like this information go here to learn how to build a web page just like this one.

Thanks for any thoughts.
Reply
smartketeer Premium
What do you mean by dashboard? Could you provide a screenshot?

You use different keywords for every single article, post, page, etc That's the very essence of SEO ... Each content piece is targeting a different issue/product/keyword

Yes, you can insert outgoing links into your articles. It's a very common practice.

Youst redirect is pure genius. We get mixed advice on when to set up an opt-in list. Kyle says wait till you are getting traffic. I agree with you. It is foolish to wait. Set up your opt-in list very early in the web development process.

I downloaded WP Updraft Plus because WP Clone lost some of my info. when I was update my plugins and other things that needed to be updated.

Now WP Updraft Plus has a warning: The scheduler is disabled in your WordPress install, via the DISABLE_WP_CRON setting. No backups can run (even "Backup Now") unless either you have set up a facility to call the scheduler manually, or until it is enabled.

Hello Smartkeeter, I downloaded the UpdraftPlus before I upgraded to the 5.0 however, I am getting this error , UpdraftPlus Vault has been chosen for remote storage, but you are not currently connected. Go to the remote storage settings in order to connect, I thought I did as you describe in the training.

I havent made any UpdraftPlus training Sabrina.

But I already answered this question a few days ago. UpdraftPlus needs an online storage where your backup file will be stored.

As I said before, it could be anything you want, Google Drive or any other free online storage service. All you need to do is to connect your UpdraftPlus with the given storage service to define the storage place for your backup files.

Hi Michael,

For the whole diagnostic mode error issue I have to ask you to contact support again, because

1. I don't have any WA hosted sites (just a crap free rubix thing for testing my tutorials) and I simply don't know how these issues work on the WA hosting environment.

2. As you said, they made some changes so they know the particular case/issue and more importantly, they know what changes they already made ...

For the Google, traffic, etc stuff, please send me a PM and I'll contact you when I have some time (right now I'm kind of busy with a new client) to see what can we do to clear the air and to find the solutions.

What I loved when I started WA was all the welcomes! Now I'm somewhat overwhelmed.
My question is - how important is the networking. I keep finding myself down the 'rabbit hole' replying to people and following them. So much so that I don't have a clear niche yet nor do I have a website set up!
I'd love a word of wisdom from you on this.

Hi Smartketeer,
Thank you for the following.
Just a few concerns
1. I have my own website which I launched 8 months ago and my niche was diabetes, heart health and general health and wellbeing. On this site I have about 14 blog posts on it but after joining WA last week, I'm now thinking of closing it down and getting a new website here on WA with a new niche.

2. The New Niche I'm thinking of is " tackling low self esteem among women in toxic relationships " but I'm a bit stuck with domain name and also thinking questioning myself whether it's a nice niche to go into.

I dont want to make another mistake with getting a right niche this time around.

so there is no light grey x at the start of the name?
just added one to the cart and opened the cart - there is a small x at the start - try hovering your mouse there and clicking if it isn't visible.
try clearing your cache or logging out and back in, pressing f5 to refresh the page.
if that doesn't work then contact site support and ask them to clear your cart.

Good Morning,

My studies went very well but I'm stuck and I need help. Don't want to just ask anyone!

I'm busy with - Building your own Traffic Producing Website - Module 9: Amplifyig Your Google Love with Google Plus.

It is not very clear how to "Add atleast 5 people to G+ to your circles", "Add your G+ account to the 'Share your G+ account Blog Post'", and "Create a New Post and Add it (with engagement) to your Google+ Post Page"

It is holding me back from moving forward. I will appreciate it if you can assist.

Have a awesome day!
Tersia

Hi Tersia.

1. For adding people to your G+ circles check this out

https://support.google.com/plus/answer/6320407

2. You simply need to add your G+ account to this post 3. You should create a WA post in order to share it on your G+ profile. I said "should", because due to the high number of shared links WA has been banned by G+ and any link that contains the root WA domain will be automatically removed by G+

Hi Zed

I came across you through one of the people on my network who was looking for help
.
I saw you were in the top 100, so I decided to check your profile out!

I found it rather interesting that you were only following 3 people here in WA and that you had a rather large following of people which included some who have been ambassadors here in WA!

I read a few of your blogging posts which were well written with very excellent advice.

I do have a question for you. I am still rather new at this internet marketing concept! I have been here a little over a year. I did start a website as recommended by WA last year which is rather broad.

I created a new website and what I wish to do is link one of my posts from this website to the blog site I originally started to prevent duplicate content and also so I do not have to re-write a post. I am planning on doing it in a manner that both sites will remain open in their own tabs on the browser.

Am wondering if this is a viable option?

Have a great day!

Tim

Hi Tim,

Thanks for reaching out!

So you have 2 different sites and you want to create some links between those two sites ..

OK, Let's say, that you have one post with this URL

firstdomain.com/given-post

and you want to insert a link in the content of that post, a link that will open in a new tab displaying o given page on your second site

seconddomain.com/given-post

Here's what you need to do:

1. Select the text that will be tranformed in a link (let's say "visit my other site") and click the "Insert/Edit link" icon in the default Wordpress editor (first screenshot) to insert the destination URL (http://www.seconddomain.com/given-post)

2. Switch to text mode in your editor (second screenshot), and locate the line where it says

visit my other site

and change that line to this

visit my other site

And voila, your second site will be opened in a new separate tab ...

Hi Ray,

First of all: thanks for following here at WA and welcome to the smartketeer family!

Of course you can succeed! Success isn't age-dependent!

I'm far far away from Alabama :) It's Europe ...

About your site: it's a nice clean site Ray! yes of course, there is room for improvements, but here at WA we just don't have the time and the space to discuss all those aspects ... That would require a separate personal coaching platform ... But I can tell you one important thing right now: your links are opened in the same window, in other words you are sending away your visitors from your site ... Which isn't good! You want to keep them on your site as long as you can ... The point: you should edit your URLs to open your links in new browser tabs ... This way your readers won't leave your site after clicking one of your links.

BTW What's that envy thing?

Thanks for your time!

Zed

Love your blog - wow fantastic all round. I'd absolutely love to have my site like this for my niche (animation)...blogs, free training, leading to pay for courses. Did you use Avada Wordpress theme or BeaverBuilder?

How long has it taken you to build this site? You say 6 or 8 years on your blog, but you are a new member here. Did you start with another program?

Hello fellow premium member, here’s to your success.

If your new to affiliate marketing just take your time and follow the training, success is yours for the taking.

If you have some experience in affiliate marketing try to forget what you already know, and view the training as if this was your first time round.
