Hi, there everyone,
My little rant here today is about sitrubix.com, and will mainly be in the interests of recent new members to WA.
If you have recently joined Wealthy Affiliate as a premium member, and are setting up your websites as per the training; Then this will interest you.
Premium members not only have access to purchase .com websites but, also can use siterubix.com.
Now, this is where it can become a little tricky; When you have written content and intend using siterubix.com as your URL, here are some simple rules that will assist with the authorising your site with Google Console and Bing Webmaster. First, register with Google Analytics, as that helps with auto verification on the other two.
Registering with Google Console, within the registration page you are asked to enter your URL. Moreover, this is what you need to do: https://www.yourwebsitename.siterubix.com and that will automatically register your site. Repeat the same procedure with Bing Webmaster and the same will apply.
I understand that quite a lot of long term members will already have known this, but, it is something newer members won't be aware, as to what they need to do, because more likely than not they'll try registering as .com, and it will not get recognised.
Additionally, you can convert your siterubix.com to a .com site at any time that suits, but, of course, that will attract the regular registration fee.
I hope this has been helpful to those who were unaware of the requirement.
