About TimMcKinlay
Joined October 2015
Hi, I'm Tim, a 30 something guy from Australia who went from working in construction to earning 6 figures per year with affiliate marketing.

I'm not a guru though.

I am just someone who believes you can achieve anything you set your mind to, as long as you believe in yourself and commit 100%. And this isn't just motivational speak, this is what I live by.

This is how I:

- Quit my old construction gig
- Became a "super affiliate"
- Met Kyle, Carson, Jay (and other cool people here) in person
- Work when I want, where I want, how I want- doing something I love

My "secret" to success:

- Follow the training, use the tools, ask for help when you need it
- Believe in yourself
- Never. Ever. Quit.

You can do this. The ONLY person standing between you and your goals, is you. And when you know this, I mean really know this, you will know that you have the power to choose how your story plays out.

Feel free to drop me a comment below, I'd love to hear from you! :)

Thanks Kyle. I'm actually pretty excited to be apart of this. Like where else do the actual CEO's talk to you on a personal level? This is awesome.

Tim, I am sorry to bother you, but yesterday I put a question on the Live Chat and nobody addressed it. I still don't know what I did wrong, but I am trying to put my latest post in the "Give & Take" Comment Drop Zone, but when I copy my link, it will not show up as a link. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Keri,

Not a problem at all, you can reach out to me at any time, more than happy to help you out :)

I would personally use either SiteComments (if you want comments on your site) or SiteFeedback if you want feedback from people about your site.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/comments/requests

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/website-feedback

However, if you still want to use the other way you mentioned, I honestly don't know for sure why this is happening. I do know that WA does strip out html code from links automatically, so it is more than likely you are using the wrong link.

Send me the URL to your site via PM (scroll up and click on private message) and I'll take a look for you if you want.

Thanks for the response. This is kind of embarrassing, but I figured it out. It didn't turn blue and become underlined to signal a link until I submitted it or hit reply. Everything is a learning curve for me, so I will keep plugging away at it. I am really enjoying the progress and all that I have been learning.

Thanks,
Keri

Not embarrassing at all, Keri :) Trust me we've all asked questions we thought were embarrassing at some point, myself included. It's all part of the process.

The fact you are learning and taking action is the most important thing. In time, you will be helping others with what you know. I remember when Kyle said something like this to me actually. That one day I would learn all this and be helping others. I'm not even sure I believed him at the time lol. But here we are.

Anyways, you're on the right track and really looking forward to seeing you continue to progress! So keep up the good work and feel free to reach out to me anytime.

Cheers

Hi Tim:
I just found out that Google indexed my site. I was going to post a note but I was looking for images, but can't find where to get them. In the blank post, there's a link to the image page, but it's not working, or I'm missing something. Any ideas?
Thanks, Steve

Hi Steve,

Congrats on getting indexed! Awesome stuff.

The image link within SiteContent should be working, if it's not I recommend contacting support to see what they say:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Alternatively, you can add images to your site directly. First download the image from somewhere like PixaBay.com and from there, upload it into your post. To upload an image, click on 'add media' and follow the prompts to upload your image.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers

Hi Tim:

Thanks, I figured it out & got it to work. Have a strategy question:
I have a couple Keywords I can use for my site. See Below:

Keyword QSR Traf Avg
Exercises Tennis Elbow 106 886 5206
Exercises for Tennis Elbow 189 886 5206

Which makes more sense, the 1st one with a lower QSR, but poorer legibility, or the 2nd with the higher QSR but more legible?

Would I be better off with a lower QSR but lower volume?

Best Exercises for Tennis Elbow 54 25 144

My goal is to monetize Elbow Braces with this Post & Knee Braces with my next Post.

My other option is to go straight to Elbow Braces:

Keyword QSR Traf Avg
Best Tennis Elbow Brace 90 37 217
Best Braces For Tennis Elbow 48 14 80

I hate to give up the volume but is 189 QSR too high? Would
Exercises-Tennis Elbow work? I could make that work legibility wise, but would it cut down on the search results/traffic? I did some searches in Google using the different versions, but can't tell if there's any difference...

Thanks for your help.

Steve

Hi Steve,

Great questions, and I'm more than happy to help you out with this.

1) I ALWAYS go for a legible keyword. No matter what. So exclude "Exercises Tennis Elbow" unless you can use it within a headline that makes sense. Like "Exercises Tennis Elbow - 7 Ways You Can Beat This Once and For All".

2) Disregard 'Traf' and focus on 'Avg' and 'QSR' going forward.

3) I definitely recommend going for the lower QSR. A QSR of over 100 is very competitive for a new site like yours. I would absolutely be targeting much lower competition keywords to begin with. This way, you can compete with the 'big guys' much easier and establish authority with Google. Eventually, you will be able to tackle these higher competition keywords and rank a lot easier.

4) My favourite keyword is "Best Braces For Tennis Elbow". This is low competition and a good keyword. However, you could still target something like "Best Tennis Elbow Brace" but I would expand it if possible. See if people are searching for stuff like "Best Tennis Elbow Brace For ___ (fill in the blank)". There could be some gems in the mix so take your time to research different variations. The lower competition the better.

Hope this helps, and reach out if you have any other questions!

Cheers

P.S It's probably better to send me this stuff via PM going forward, because this is more a one on one coaching discussion is all.

Is there any way through WA to buy SEO. I have a friend that can give me the phone number of Indian Gurus that work full time for large corporation as full time SEO Engineers. They also like to do SEO on the side for $10 per hour. Any thoughts as I am going to invest $100 per month for 3 months to see if I can get on page one with my web site. I am the #1 on You Tube for the search Laser Golf Instruction.

Not that I'm aware of, no. WA teaches you how to get your site ranking but there's no option to pay someone to do it for you. So if you want to go this route then you'd need to look outside of WA.

Hey Tim, thanks for the feed back I'm just cruising through the first courses to get into it. I set up a niche of carbon roadbikes, but I am interested in niches that would be strategic. So I'm just going to continue to try to finish beginners school, and then get rolling, if you have any direction as far as mentorship and direction to hit the fast track that would be swell! Thanks DZ

Hi David,

Sounds good! The best advice I can give you is to follow the training as closely as possible. There's not really any fast track that I'm aware of ;) But I can say that if you dedicate yourself to learning and taking massive action, you will reach your goals. Because the process works and I am here to help you as best I can.

Anyways, thanks for reaching out and talk soon!
