Did you know that every single WA blog that you write gets indexed into Google? The same is true for every training tutorial and question discussion you create within WA. So think about that for a moment. What should you do to your WA blogs, training tutorials, and question discussions?

KEYWORD RESEARCH

Now I am not advocating this for every WA blog you write, and certainly not for question discussions, but if you treat the titles the same way you do for your website, you will rank better in search results. For example…

Two days ago on Saturday June 18, 2016, I created a WA blog called, “How Long Does it Take to Make Money at Wealthy Affiliate” and that entire title is a long tail keyword with 104 Monthly Searches and a QSR of 0 (see below pictures).


As you can see above there are two similar long tail keywords and the only difference is the words “at” and “with,” so I chose “at” because it had the lowest QSR, see below images.

I CHOSE THE ABOVE VERSION OF THE KEYWORD WITH THE WORD "AT" AND DID NOT CHOOSE THE KEYWORD (BELOW) WITH THE WORD "WITH."


If you have not read the blog from the other day, in which I used this long tail keyword in the title, the link is below. When you read the title and see how I worded the blog, you will understand how the blog is mainly written for non-WA members.

I am not quite understanding this and I want to so badly, I have been mulling it over for a few hours.
So, If I copy n paste my affiliate links of any of my WA blogs
(that are also hopefully ranking in Google in their own rights)
apply a pretty link of it - do I then put it in my website?

You do not need to place your affiliate links on your WA blogs because the blog itself is an affiliate link being that you are the author of it.

All content YOU create here at WA can be shared without using the affiliate link for it.

The only times you would use an affiliate link is when you are sharing content that another WA member created or when sharing the affiliate link to the WA home page.

You can place non affiliate links to any of your WA blog posts or training on your website and Google will not consider them as affiliate links because they will not contain an affiliate ID in the url.

AGAIN, all content you create here at WA can be shared without using the affiliate link for it. You will still get all affiliate referral credits that come from people joining WA through your WA blogs because you are the creator of said blog.

O.K. so the WA Blog is a non-affiliate link.
How do I link that to my website?
What else is considered a non-affiliate link?
How do I share a non-affiliate link Say one of my WA blogs to Twitter or Facebook?
I have noticed that the WA blogs we do there is a Google + button at the top to share that but did wonder if it was O.K to do that. As when I did a few weeks ago Google suspended me.
I have no idea why I can't get my head around this Boomer.
Sorry for bugging you. And being a bit dense.

DO NOT share any WA affiliate links on Google+, Google will block them because all WA links are considered spam in The eyes of Google+

Anything you create here within WA (blog, discussion, training) can be shared without using its affiliate link because you are the author of said content.

But you must use the affiliate link for all other blogs, discussions and trainings you wish to share when you are not the author of said content.

The process for linking to your WA blogs from your website is the same as linking to some other content. And as far as linking to your WA blog from Twitter or Facebook, just post the link of the blog.

Robert you do an exceptional job of teaching. Yeah I know the online secret and so do you. But I have a question for you. Other than the want or need to help others (the giving back thing) I am always curious as to WHY you and others write quality content, post it here on WA when you could use that same content to propell your own site into the stratosphere? I mean ...

UNLESS you are a network marketer looking to build a loyal following who will join your team call me stupid but I don't see the benefit. Yep I know that posts on WA (blog posts etc) rank higher and faster due to WA's online horsepower BUT ...

IF you would have written all the quality content you posted on WA and instead posted it on your own site have you ever wondered how much better your site may rank now?

Hey, maybe I'm wrong but I'm not a prolific writer. It takes me HOURS even DAYS to write a top quality piece of content so to waste that content on a site that allows me to only sell or promote WA (according to TOS I can't even link to my squeeze page or blog), which means I can't build my list (which is where the big money is really at) just doesn't make sense to me. So ...

Am I missing something?

Good question. I'll bet Robert has an awesome answer though, that we can all learn from.

I do write content for my website, twice as much as I write here. But I look at it this way. Why get all of my referrals from one basket. Why not get them from my website and my WA content? Plus I also have another reason for writing quality content here.

I can place links to these pieces of WA content all over my website and they will NOT be seen as affiliate links by Google, even though they will act just like affiliate links within the WA referral system and give me referral credit for anyone who joins WA from reading my WA content. Got to use all of the referral arsenal that I can. :)

As for training tutorials like these, WA pays members credits for each tutorial created, provided it is a quality piece of content.

AHA! Good point!

This is why some of my blogs, like my most recent one, I will write the content in a way that is talking to non-WA members and will end it with a call to action for them to join WA.

Very compelling tutorial Robert ... you would think this point would be emphasized more in the training. Maybe it is somewhere in Bootcamp which I've just started. Thank you for another great tutorial.

I recently found and started to make sense of the My Stats page found under the airplane tab. I was amazed to find considerable raw click activity there. Is the source of those clicks coming from Google search as you describe here or are these internal community clicks?

I agree that this point probably could be emphasized a bit more than it is. But Kyle does mention it in the training, and I believe it may be in the Bootcamp training, but he doesn't really go into detail about it. Just that all written content here at WA gets indexed in Google.

He also mentions that as the author of WA content, we do not have to use the affiliate link when sharing the link. Again he doesn't go into detail but he does mention it.

Personally I do not track the Raw Clicks because that is a combination of all types of clicks, including your own, so I always disable the tracking of those.

this is so awesome - I have been using my blog posts here to draw attention toward my profile within this community, so when I am up to three months, I can create training that will be read, hopefully, and earn a commission that way. I have not written content though, that is totally geared toward non-WA members, so I need to work on that. Also, I have been lacking on the keyword research for the posts here - which I also need to remedy, thank you for the reminder. Love your thorough training, and will take all of it to heart. What I truly did not know is that the questions get ranked by google too, that is very interesting - will see how I can use that to my advantage - blessings - now I am off to read all of your other stuff, and see what else I can learn from you!

Yes, blogs, question discussions, and training get indexed and ranked in Google. However I wouldn't advocate trying to make your question discussions to rank in Google. WA blogs yes, WA training maybe, WA question discussions no.

The WA blogs are the best way to go if you want to get ranked high in Google and possibly capture more referrals because all written content is on one page and could contain several other keywords naturally found within the body of the content.

As for the training, the information on page one should be compelling enough for people to want to click through to page 2 and beyond. The reason why I personally use a table of page content at the beginning of my tutorials, is to help readers to know what is ahead. Almost like a teaser or preview.

I also do this for the non-WA members who might find the training online. Seeing how a non-WA member cannot click past page 1 without becoming a member, it could help to generate a referral. You never know. :)
