About Tommo1968
Joined November 2011
Hi, was shown the WA website when looking for a way to make money online after loosing my job. Decided to use my past experience and hobby in the fishing tackle industry to promote my website.

Also built an eBay shop to sell fishing tackle promoted by the website which I have since sold.

Switched the website from an ebay traffic funnel to an affiliate website in Late 2017 working hard to increase traffic and more sales.

Update: Got my first Check from Amazon in May 2018 https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/tommo1968/blog/does-wa-work-here-is-proof-my-amazon-commission

Update: Made my first $1000 in Sept 2018 The sales are continuing to come through as the posts get indexed.

Follow the training and ask for help when stuck or concerned. It's all there so work through it, take notes and go over it.

Rome wasn't built in a day it will take at least 6 months to make any real progress so don't give up after a few months.

Hi Gabriel feedback is offered from here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/website-feedback if you want a proper look.

However I did have a glance and see it has potential.

I like the way its a personal journey as well as a way to sell products. I would say however you need to fill out the blog posts a bit. I counted less than 300 words on some.

I would maybe talk about each photo a bit rather than have a list of them on each post. I try to get 1000 words per post especially on the how to do posts. Keep at it, fill it out and keep adding new content and I'm sure it will be rewarding.

Hi again Mark you may not be aware of this, but it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Not a problem Mark.
A lot of people don't bother with how high their ranks is simply because they concentrate on why they are here and that is to learn how to earn an income from the internet.
As far as I'm concerned that's ok and as it should be.
Feel free to comment or like but it wont make you a penny lol
Now I'm off out for a wee while.
maybe catch you later.

I should add it really depends on a number of things as to how quick or successful you can be. Some members have seen results within weeks and making good money in months others take longer. The time you can commit to working on it will also have an effect. If like me you are doing this part time it will take longer. My advise get busy and start making progress towards your goals.

Hey tommo, just had a look at your site on the keyword page, i dont like to sugar coat things and im going to give it exactly as how i viewed it myself, its hard to review for other people lol...

ok, overall i had to really concentrate on the guide you put in on the page, i personally would have found it easier to read if it was broken up a little more into seperate paragraphs.

There is also a few grammar errors....this may be known to you but just pointing out, if you want me to point them out let me know.

one more thing i was confused with, the high search/low competition? Googles keyword tool i was led to believe that the competition doesnt mean the web page competition but advertiser competition???

I seen that you did talk about going into google to find the exact web page competition but it got me confused because of what you said first.

Hope it helps as thats all my intention is to do, your site looks pretty slick and i hope it does well for you!!
Reply
tommo1968 Premium
Hi medic, have taken your points on board and re jigged the post a bit. I found a couple of grammar errors but its always better when someone else sees it fresh.

I did know Adword competition is not website traffic but didn't want to confuse newbies any further. Although it did that with you so I have re written that.

Have a glance over it again to see if it reads any better for you if you don't mind old chat, thanks.

Tommo...thanks for the follow!

I checked...you are ranking #1 in the U.S. for the search term "how to trout fish"...congratulations. However, one thing I noticed is that your website shows up in Google search as howtotroutfish(dot)com...no "www" in front of it. And, if I look for your website using "www", your website appears as www.howtotroutfish(dot)com...your website appears both with and without the "www", depending on how you type it in.

I find that interesting because I have been told that if that happens, then you have a canonicalization problem and that a website would not likely rank as well...your website seems to prove that wrong!

I guess I will have to do more research...

Once again, thanks for the follow and congratulations!

That's really good to hear tommo1968 thanks for the follow. I just joined today and know absolutely nothing about Internet marketing . Hearing that you are making progress gives me more motivati. I was just about to give up looking for a legitimate program until I stumbled upon wealthy affiliate , I to want to do the same thing and use my past experience in promoting a website since I can no longer work in my profession due to an illness that has left me disabled. I hope to get valuable information from all of you in here in the future. Again, thanks
Reply
tommo1968 Premium
There is loads of people in here who can help. Do the recommended training on the left bar first, read through all the material. Using something you are used to as your niche means you can write about it without having to research it first. This speeds up the process. You will be able to answer questions much quicker. Then find a domain name to host your site and start writing articles and posts. You may find things do take a bit of time to start seeing results it really depends on the amount of time you have to spend. The more you can work a day the better. Try to do something every day even if its only find a new keyword. Momentum is key to success. I would also start setting up accounts on googleplus, twitter, pinterest and facebook and start searching and following people who are interested in your niche. It takes time to build a good following so the sooner you start the better.

Thanks Lisa we do try to be helpful when we can. It benefits us also as my site is sitting No 1 and that was mainly down to Ty and the WSS community.

Mate, you have ZERO competition because there is only one person in the world like you. So, there will be people who will want to hear what YOU have to say about trout fishing and that is guaranteed. Forget competition, just go for it and don't get distracted by other things around.
