Just kidding! :)

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Marc. It’s great to meet you and if you are new, welcome to the most amazing Online Marketing community in the world!

1 month ago I set a clearly defined goal for my website. That goal was to rapidly and drastically increase my 100% free, natural website traffic and leads being received from the search engines.

After a month of HYPER-FOCUSED study, analysis, and a quick 4 day test at the end…. I accomplished that goal.

I am excited to share these secrets that I have extracted from all over the Wealthy Affiliate community with you today!

I have a wealth of information that I have broken up into easy to follow steps, each day for the next week or so for you… Yip, you don’t want to rush this, relax and take your time.

So click the favorite’s Star, save and / or bookmark this training now so that you will easily get back to it each day. And remember to give it a ‘thumbs up’ (like) it is helpful.

Just before we get started. Please note that in light of keeping this content complete, I will be sending you to various other highly important training materials on WA that you will need to cover in order to fully put this training to good use.

If you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments, Please add a ‘?’ at the end for faster response times.

Great!

Yes, I did learn something. I learned that the approach I was taking with the Keyword research was the same approach that you explained in this tutorial and I did get ranked on page one, for a few of my articles.

And, for the rest of my articles. I did not use the same approach and they are not ranked so, I have to agree with you tutorial. When, I first tried out this approach, I knew and understood I was taking a risk but, I was more focused on trying to see if it would work. And, it did.

You also confirmed that, just because the search and traffic results are low now, does not mean it wont pick up in the future. It is just a risk that we take. I was thinking that the search and traffic results could possibly pick up in the future but, was not sure. So, you confirmed my thoughts on that.

I also learned about two new websites that you mentioned moz tool and the newipnow so, thank you for that.

And, you also inspired me when you say that you went yearly, then you were able to learn and experiment. Now, today it sounds like everything is going great for you. So, that is awesome.

I have been thinking that I been moving to fast through my training but, I am not because, I am trying to learn and experiment I went yearly as well.

And, I am a 100% focused on learning how to master this. I have been experimenting as well. It is kind of like being a scientist. I think it is fun and amazing when I find a new trick.

Thank you for this awesome training, and I would be sure to share it with anyone who needs this.

Another question...

How can we come up with an in depth review about a product without having any access to what it contains?

We are all talking about providing facts which are based on real events, scenarios, or experience. But the challenge to most of us is how can we create an in depth review if we don't have access to the back office of the product?
Reply
MoritzS Premium
Either check out other reviews (but who knows if they really know the facts) or get the product.

Or base your review on the sales page, but then you should be honest in your article.

Too many people are writing fake reviews which can back fire sooner or later.

Hi,

I have had the same problem. What you can do is the following:
1. Go to the store and see if you can find the product there. Take notes of what the packaging says about the product. If a rep is there, ask them questions about the product. Warranty information etc.
2. Go to Amazon to see if they sell the product. Read what is said about it. Also, read the questions and reviews to gain more understanding about the product.
3. Go to the manufacturer's website and read what they say about the product. Also, read any reviews that might be there.

From these sources, you make a review of the product based on the knowledge you gained from the sources above.

Good luck.

George

This is the reason why I'm cautious about making a review about this product because I don't want to solely base my review off of my opinion and past experience. (Although this seem to be the same as those online courses we typically see on JVzoo and other affiliate websites)
Reply
shweetlife Premium
Reviewing products without using them can be done if you are open about it with your audience and leave the discussion open in your comment section... This is a great way to get your users to give their opinions and "create" content for you...

You are sharing your views and comparing / noting features... Raising your questions, concerns, expectations and looking for other peoples honest feedback... Trust me, people love to give their opinion... Does not mean that you have used the product. Be open about it though.

This is a great advice Marc! I havent thought about this and I think this is a brilliant idea to gain people's trust, attention, and to have more engagements :) Thanks!!

Most merchants who are actually selling the product will give their own review.
Its up to you to take that review and put your own spin on it.
The big online stores such as Amazon and eBy have reviews they allow you to use.

Not crazy Irma. I can easily get 5,000 each and every day with a piece of software I use.
be aware though this doesn't mean they are buyers but it does give my site visibility with the search engines.
This of course means I get a higher rank and this means more people will see my listing on the SERPs.

Hey there, I don't really get your question, but my 2cents is that an opt-in box with a lead magnet is always great for lead generation. You can simply set it up and when traffic comes to your site, they can easily sign up...

Can you 'fetch' more than once? And also I am confused about the position on the google console. Does this have any thing to do with page rank on Google? Can you give me more info on what position is/does.

ChrisGooden Premium
You can fetch as often as you want. There are some limits but I can't recall exactly what they are. It's like 50 times a day, or something equally irrelevant.
Reply
pamdemonium Premium
From what I understand, when one does a "fetch as Google", you're simply manually adding your URL onto Google's index, as opposed to waiting for Google to crawl your site -- which happens only ever so often.

So if you'd like for your site/specific page to be indexed quicker on Google's search results, then you can go and "fetch as Google".

Any more experienced member care to verify what I just said?

You mentioned to use only 1 affiliate link in your post. Does this mean only one product, or listing the link to the product you are promoting just one time?

Hey Angela.

I may have over emphasized that.

Basically, you do not want your posts flooded with links. If I compare four products, then I would normally only have four links in the post (one to each product.)

It's not a must, but try to keep affiliate links to a minimum.

Hope that this helps.

I want to ask this. You wrote: (page 10): "Make sure you are 200% sure that you will not have to go back and change anything BEFORE you publish your post."

What do you mean with it? And why it is 200% crucial?
Reply
shweetlife Premium
Hey Egon

Sorry for the delay. I seem to have missed a few questions over the last month.

Basically, you don't want to make changes (other than adding content / updating posts) after you have published, especially if your post is ranking.

You may end up removing or changing what is giving you the ranking in the first place. This could mean that you loose your position.

Hope that this make sense?

Like you said, Marc, choose a new product and do a review. That's what I'm going to do...

look for HIGH searches per month

LOW QSR (close to zero as possible and don't go over 300) i stay uunder 100 for mine

good formula to try yourself and easy to remember

100,100,100

but

<10 is no good

10,000 is awesome for traffic or searches per month if u got LOW qsr

remember

100,100,100 and GOOD article power above 8

Hey Pam

It's tough for me to answer this for you as I don't have the product background, but here is what you need to consider...

Firstly, confirm your spelling (Just to make 100% sure ;)

Then, you know your niche market and your audience and if this is something that may get them excited...

You know if you have seen the hype building on social networks, forums / groups etc..

You know who the owner of the product is and if they have a history of successful products/ marketing campaigns... Or if their products hype only lasts a month or two...

Take all of this into consideration and if you feel that the product will take off, then go for it. Even if it's just a short 500 word review that you can update later once you see it taking off.

As always, new products are a gamble, but if they take off, they will drive a lot of traffic to your site.

Two reviews I did recently are driving between 30 and 70 views a day. Because they are new products, I had the same values as you <10 etc.

But I know the manufacturers are strong brands and this made me confident that I was not wasting my time.

Just takes a bit of trial and error sometimes. ;)

Hello Pam. Its ok for the long term because no one is using it right now but don't discount it because you will easily rank on page one with it.

If you want lots of organic traffic then choose a keyword with a QSR under 50 and a high traffic number in the 100's and better still in the 1,000's..
Enjoy your Saturday.

Thank you all for all your advice! @Jim-Bo, @marcparsons, @Robert-A!

@Jim-Bo - The Article Power is 8.8 and PPC Power is 9.5 with this keyword. Just to share... But I understand what you mean about high Search + Traffic is essential too

@Marc - I get what you mean about it being a gamble!

@Robert - Yes, those were my thoughts! Regarding ranking on page 1...

Conclusion: I'm gonna try, and no matter what, if it doesn't work out the way I intend, it's fine. I've so much more content to produce anyway! More keywords to rank! Not gonna kill/blame myself for it...

Stick with the Bootcamp training for now and keep completing every task. Kyle truly knows how to guide you through each and every step of internet marketing. And nothing he does is without the bigger picture in mind.

Your website is still brand new as well, so have a little faith. Mine only started to really gain Googles approval after 3 - 6 months... And trust me, when it happens you will fall off of your chair.

Some get there a bit faster, others take a bit longer, but if you keep at it, it will happen.

I think it's a good idea. I started doing it with mine. According to other WA members Google likes to see updates to articles. It may also get you on page one.
Reply
shweetlife Premium
Hey Ann and Rawl.

Updating content is good for bringing your old posts back to life... There is a but to it though.

It needs to be done right ;)

Ann, your website is still new, I would recommend moving forward by publishing new content and posts. You need to spend time on getting new content out there at the moment.... So that google will start to notice you, along with communities and people in your niche.

This way, in 6 months, a year or even 3 years time, you can come back and update your old posts when you are more comfortable with what effect it may have on your rankings.

If done wrong, updating your content can have a negative effect. There is more to it than meets the eye.

This is why Kyle recommends comments... Comments are a constant flow of fresh content to your posts... Google loves this.

Hey Janelle

Assuming you are referring to products for your bootcamp site.

Search for #prelaunch and then select the 'Latest' tab.

It's not every day that you find new ones, but I usually find one or two a month that are worthwhile... And when the hype picks up, I get from 20 to 100 views from Google per day... per review.

Well worth the effort ;)

You definitely do not want to change your post/page URL's. This will have a negative impact on what you have done so far.

As far as the outbound links, check out the links I left in the training to Jay's videos. He covers this quite in depth.

Keep focusing on adding what you learn to new content. The old content is there and should not be messed with after it is published.

This is totally possible. I will write more quality content. I know this will work for sure!

10 February 2017, I have monthly website visitors = 100 000

10 February 2017, I have daily Website Visitors = (100 000 / 30) = 3,333

10 July 2016, I have daily Website Visitors = (3,333 / 3) = 1111

10 April 2016, I have daily Website visitors = (1111/3) = 370

10 March 2016, I have daily Website Visitors = (370/3) = 123

Could be your network connection or the moz server that is slow... I get this as well.

resetting the moz search profile once or twice seems to do the trick for me.

Remember... the beauty of WA is that there are 1000's to pose your question to... It will take individuals a while to respond as 1 person answering 100's of questions is not easy...

but 1000's of people answering 1 question is...

Jump into chat, add your question in the top search bar... add a blog... You have soo many resources at your finger tips... Take advantage of it.

What determines "no page authority"?

It's usually age and trust of the website
How many quality links to your page
New websites will have no page or domain authority until they prove to add value have quality links and plenty of traffic and shares

Hey Wayne. All I have to go on is your two siterubix domains... First thing I would do is change to your own domain as subdomains are not as easy to rank.

How do you increase your page authority?
Reply
shweetlife Premium
Domain authority comes with time and is influenced by several factors. Check out my response to the comments below. I have left a few links for further info.

As far as ranking with 1 or zero DA. It's not impossible, but makes it more challenging. Still apply what you have learned to get the easiest possible ranking once your DA improves...

Remember though, it is your evergreen content that will mostly benefit your DA. Get social at network forums so that people know your are in the niche. Provide quality and fresh content. Your DA will improve.

Marc,

Going through your training. I have only been doing this for about 9 days. I am currently on course 5 lesson 5. I have been indexed and according to my console I have submitted 22 and indexed 11. Now for the analytics. I have 15 impressions, 0 CTR, and 68.1 avg. position. I think that even though my CTR is 0 right now I am progressing pretty well for only doing this for 9 days. What do you think? I am going to continue with your training in between my other training and my website building. Multi tasking here I come!

Hey Kristena

Your website is looking fantastic for being so new... Was not expecting that.

I personally would not worry too much about your stats right now... focus on completing the certification courses and then come back to your stats... It's a bit too early at the moment.

You really are doing great tho! Well done!

kacalhoun Premium
Thank you! I was actually quite surprised at the progress I had made on this myself. I think I have found what I should have been doing this whole time with my life. I used to love to write when I was in school, but I never made anything of it.

I have finished the courses, now I just need to get some traffic and get my sites ranked higher. My rankings dropped yesterday. I actually write about 4 or 5 posts (all my posts coincide with one another) in one day and then I take a day or two of not writing anything, just researching everything or helping out here. It gives my brain a chance to think of ideas for my content.

Last night, I actually thought of another website idea, but I am not going to start on it yet, don't want to spread myself too thin.

Anyway, Thanks for checking it out for me.

Hey Marc,
Thanks for the great training. I am looking forward to being able to share some of my learnings, as well. But I am not quite at 90 days.

I noticed the same thing about the stress of the monthly premium membership fee so before my full payment of 47 was due in my second month I did a Black Friday promo for yearly. Great Tip!

I did learn some stuff today and I went through from start to finish the first time. I am sure I will learn more as I go back through working the process over the next couple of days.

I did learn some stuff about my site already that is definaitely helpful.

Thanks Again,

Hey Marc, this training has been great. A lot of insight and material for me to digest (newbie here).

I've a question: In Lesson 11, your "content posting ritual", you listed - Google plus, Pinterest, twitter and Facebook. Is there a reason you chose Pinterest over Instagram?

Would be great to hear your thoughts/opinion. Thanks!
Reply
shweetlife Premium
Hey Pam

It's a personal preference for me.

I have heard that people get FANTASTIC results from Instagram marketing once there foundation (website) is strong enough.

So pick one that suites you, but remember... Focus on your website... Social is more often than not just a distraction and should only come in once your foundation is in place.

Hope this helps :)

In what context? How was it used?

Filter is when you organise the results being displayed with respect to a specific result.

for example, filter by CTR or filter by position.

No worries.... We all have to learn. Best way to do so is by asking ;)
Reply
RethaT Premium
Hey Marc, what is considered a high CTR
Reply
shweetlife Premium
Hey Retha.

CTR will vary according to position and other things. I couldn't give you an exact answer as a result of this, but put it this way...

If you have two different product reviews for example, in the same position, same expected traffic, try to compare that...

It's better than saying X Y or Z is a good CTR. Too many variables.

Remember, it takes a while for your CTR to 'stabalise'. Hope that helps.

Hey Rawl.

I recall the lesson. I'd be lying if I said I knew the exact reason he said and do not want to advise against it.

Remember though, I have ADHD and like to mix things up, in an effort to constantly try and improve my website.

My bold text in some of my post is an overkill... And I believe this is why Kyle advises against it.

On that same note, I do not bold for SEO purposes. Copywriting, NLP and other aspects are things I like to play around with as they interest me... That's all the bold text has to do with. ;)

hope this helps

Hi Marc, for the goal setting, may I know why you divide by 3 from 1 year to 6 month? Mathematically, Shouldn't it be half? Or is there any other consideration on how to measure this? Similarly, from 6 month to 3 month. Thanks a lot.

No particular reason. In my opinion though, as you learn, your results grow exponentially.

This is not only a result of learning, but also as a result of your website aging and gaining authority while applying what you learn.

It has a low PA and DA as well as the title and description not matching.

My niche is personal development, so not sure what products could be "hottest thing" whatsoever (it's more of a blog, reviews are only about relevant books), but I definitely found this training useful AND saved it for future reference.

Thanks a BUNCH for adding the relevant WA training tutorials when you talked about particular topics - helped a lot.

For the self help niche, I know that people like Tony Robins and Grant Cardone have huge hype around there new products that are going to be launched.

I am sure there are many more. These kinds of products usually cost more than the average book and if you rank can drive some pretty decent traffic.

Not sure if they are the kind of personal development you are referring too, but I know they definitely played a role in my personal development... eg;

Grant Cardones 10X rule
Tony Robins videos on NLP

Etc.

Well worth reading up on. :)

Hey Marc, this excellent, excellent training. I was ready to read some gimmick and roll my eyes, Lol. You really took the time to give out some fantastic advice. For me free traffic should be the main focus especially when starting off. No gimmicks, no easy way out, just pure work. You also gave important key points, one of which was not to focus on the money. The money will come through the fruits of labor. Congrats and thanks for sharing such great training. :)

lol! I am glad that you approve Evelyn.

The problem with focusing on the money is that you forget to focus on what is really important to get results. Therefore end up holding yourself back.

Glad you brought up the point again!

Thanks Evelyn :)

I've got 1 question, whenever you find google's first pages to be mostly of PA 1 or other low numbers then you are good to go and write a post? Also does the DA matter when trying to rank?

Yes if most of page 1 is PA 1 then it is a great sign, but the DA does come into it too, as does everything else Jay spoke about. What you need to do is the spreadsheet like Jay explained and look at it as a whole. If you can see clearly that there is a pattern of no keyword in url, title, description, low PA, low DA, Weak URL and Weak Domain then you are good to go. So try look at it as a whole and not just one of those factors.

Thanks for your answer Lynne, i've been usually checking those 2 for my blogs and reviews but still not sure how they fully work, the reason mostly because i still haven't got a decent rank for any of the posts and can't figure out why. I've elaborated more in another post if u want to check it.

Great training, I noticed your page authority is 25. Can you tell me how to increase page authority? mine is still 1

Hey kumaran. There are so many factors effecting Domain and Page Authority.

It is not something that happens over night and takes a good long term strategy to build. The Page authority you are seeing is for my home page, It's quite natural that it is high.

Neil Patel has some great content for an external point of view.

Leo put me onto him and he is definitely somebody worth following in my opinion.

Hi Marc, pretty good training and very detailed. It took me sometime to plow it, but finally got there. Seems that I'm already doing everything as detailed. I am interested in paid traffic using ads such as Facebook and Taboola etc do you have any experience in this?
Reply
shweetlife Premium
Thank you Sharon. Glad to here you concur.

Unfortunately I cleaned the slate and threw everything I thought I knew about paid advertising out of the window when I joined WA.

I have not reached a point where I am able to start studying the paid ads courses here yet and therefore won't be of much help to you on the topic.

Will keep an ear to the ground for those who are and let you know though.

all of the best.

I know I'm repeating myself here Marc but... GREAT STUFF! Really focused. Can't wait to start putting it into practice.

Thanks Guy. I am super excited to see what kind of results everyone is going to be getting.

I am not going to be doing a review on the product I used as an example either, but will say that there seems to be quite a pre launch buzz about it and it does look like and easy ranking.

This is what I came up with. I know it doesn't look BIG, but it is what seems attainable for me after all my calculations:

- 12 daily visitors in 1 month
- 37 daily visitors in 3 months
- 110 daily visitors in 6 months
- 330 daily visitors a year from here
Reply
shweetlife Premium
Sounds Good Guy! 330 visitors a day is something well worth working towards! Looking forward to hearing about your results!

Hi marc! Thank you so much! that was an amazing training. I haven't finished yet, but I have some questions. My domain authority is like this -- Does it means I don't have domain authority? I ran my website since August. How long does it take?
Another question, I find that it is really difficult to do reviews of these new products without buying them. Normally, the bad products don't offer much information on the sales page. Therefore, the quality can be a problem if you don't try the product. At least for me, it is. So far, I am doing reviews of products that are free or that have already other reviews. But I am finding very difficult to rank for them!
Thanks for your help!
