There's no Facebook like/share button here. Can I just put the affiliate links (on blog posts, videos, questions)? Can we share the link on our Facebook pages? And when I do that, will the associated thumbnail image also come? Is there a difference in sharing the content on our personal Facebook wall and our page?

How can we share it on Pintrest if they are blocking it?

It looks like many of you are wondering why they don't see the Facebook share button that shows on Kyle's video (I am not talking about the social share buttons on our blog). I looked everywhere myself and I can only come to the conclusion that it doesn't exist anymore, the video must be a little out of date and most likely will be updated at some stage. All you need to do then is to copy the link you want to share on your Facebook, go to your FB account and paste it there with a bit of description.

Hope this clarifies the issue.

Best wishes,

I asked the same question - here is the response Boomergp08 gave me; '---->

The Facebook Like button has been removed when the WA site was upgraded last year.

However if you share any content from WA that you did not create, just click the button that says Affiliate at the top of the screen and copy the link displayed.

Then paste that link into social media or in an email. Anyone who clicks on that link and then goes on to join WA, you will get full credit for that referral.

I see the FaceBook icon/button on Kyle's page in the video that you are questioning. In the video he says that the button is visible on questions, blog posts and training pages, however it does not show on mine.

I think it must not exist on these pages any longer. After a little research though I found that we can add those buttons to our own websites through WordPress by adding a free plugin called Social Media and Share Icons (Ultimate Social Media). There are other brands to choose from as well. Just do a search for "share social media" in plugins and more will come up. So maybe Kyle's plugin is out of date and needs to be updated, or maybe he removed it.

There is a button to report outdated training or websites so maybe one of us can send it in.

That is done with social media icons. Quality themes now include these but for those that do not, there are social media plugins available.

Like Trish points out, some of the newer "themes" come with them built in. My theme, IconicOne, has it built it but I don't like it. So I use a plug in called "Sassy Social Share." It's free so check it out if you like.

Yes. Wealthy affiliate offers commissions for people that sign up for the program through a link or banner on your site. All the links and banners you find on your WA site are linked to you. Once someone opens them. If they go back to WA on the same computer 3 months later, you still get the credit. Check our the WA referral program under affiliate program on the left center part of the WA home dashboard. It gives you the commissions.

drjec Premium
You can set up your twitter, Facebook, instagram, etc. accounts either as business accounts related to your site or as a personal account in which you share your posts and sites. You simply go to you SM account and post the link to the content you want to share. If you want the buttons on your website to your social media accounts, go to plugins, add new, then search for social media, choose the plugin you want, install it, and activate it. You will then have to go to your widgets and find that plugin and set it up. I hope this answers your question.
Reply
jim4jesus Premium
Thank you for that detailed answer. Maybe it is my answer. I'm not sure. I was in bootcamp course 2, lesson one and Kyle gave an assignment to share 3 pages of content on social media. I saw in the chat below someone confused (as I was) about how. They were referred to the above video. In the video Kyle goes to a WA article/class/etc about "Hosting with WA" and talks about sharing the content of that article on social media. The article has a Facebook share button at the top of the page. He just clicks on the button, adds some personal attention getting info, and poof - it's all already at his facebook page. I looked throughout WA at different articles and never found that Facebook sharing button. Are you saying that it will be there if I add a plugin to my WA website? Am I still a bit confused. Thanks again for your time.

I have a question about the cookies.

When person A clicked an affiliate link from elsewhere to WA and person A left, cookies will be used to track person A, right? The explanation from from Kyle is that whenever person A decides to join WA, the person who offers the affiliate link will get the referral because cookies are used to track person A.

My question is, if before person A decides to join WA, he/she clicked through ANOTHER affiliate link by ANOTHER person, then which person will get the referral if person A eventually decides to join WA (because now there are two links)?
Reply
CateR Premium
If I understand this correctly then there's no definite answer:

If the person joining hasn't cleared their cookies out between the two visits then the first link will get the referral, if they have then the second will.

Please jump in anyone if I am wrong here?

KachinaB Premium
I think the like button for WA has been removed because I asked that same question before too. The best way I think you can share this info is to grab the affiliated link that's in between the blue tool and green comment button at the top of the discussion.


Another way you can share it and also get people to your website is to write content about a topic that allows you to include a discussion from WA and grab the affiliated link and include it in your discussion. Download a social network share plugin for your website and then click to share it. I hope that makes sense!

Best of luck to you!

KachinaB Premium
Usually most ppl if you look to the side or that top or below the article you should see social icons that say something like "click here to share". Click on my article below and you will see buttons on the right side that says share. This will give you the opportunity to share my info on social sites that you have an account with. In order to share content, you will need to sign in on your account with the social network you decide to share the content on.

No, your account is totally fine. I see from your picture you can still access your account.

Maybe you’re clicking on a link somewhere on FB and FB sees that link as a malicious link so, they block it for your own safety. The blocked link is most likely an affiliate link because I read it somewhere here someone mentioned about this.

This was made on 2013. Check your Facebook status, the Facebook has blocked these kind of share on Facebook. I tried it. And Facebook blocked it by scam with malware. I'm not sure what it is. It would stop let you login at the first time when you direct share from here. Facebook tells you that after malware be scaned, you can login to your account. After that, I logged in . And read this share under activity log that showed private, which is only you status. I think we need to indirect share now.2016

How does one share content to email accounts, e.g. Hotmail and/or gmail ?
Reply

Very carefully. Send less than 100 emails at once. Be aware that if anyone complains you are SPAMing them you will loose that email account including any contact list associated with it. That is why optin lists are so important.

Do I have to set up a website first before I do this? I'm REALLY new to this whole concept, and I appreciate any help I can get to help me get up and going. Also, how do I know I'm logged in?

Hello. Welcome to wealthy affiliate. If you click on the green button that says GET STARTED HERE on the left, you can begin with your training. Everything is explained there and if you have any questions you can click on LIVE CHAT and ask the question there.

You are going to set up your website in the process, so don't worry about it, because there are few thing you need to do before setting up your website.

You wouldn't be able to ask questions, and post if you wouldn't be logged in.

WA will teach you how to set up a website, and you'll do that as part of your training. You do not need a website already in order to do the training, but you will need to make a website as part of your training.

Have you started your lessons yet? I think things will be a bit clearer as you start completing the tasks in the lessons. Let me know if you have any follow up questions!

I have started my lessons, and as soon as I shared the content on facebook, my account locked up and said I need to run this Trend Micro Housecall program to clean unwanted malware. It's been stuck on a page that says it's downloading since yesterday. I don't know what to do. Have you ever encountered this before. Really need some advice.

Once you have logged into your WA account anytime you choose to like a Facebook link will go directly to your Facebook Home Page. You must have a Facebook account; this resource to attract visitors through your link. In the event that anyone signs up through your link you will get the credit for the sale.

Facebook doesn't allow direct affiliate links so you will need to direct people to a site where they will get the affiliate link.

Thanks, Labman. Now I am really confused??? The person below me, Jennydb, said she tried to share directly to facebook with the like button and did not work. Is that the same thing? So I guess what you are saying is I need to build the WA website first, then put a link on Facebook to that site? Is that right? Thanks! I truly appreciate your help!

The best thing is to first create a personal facebook account.

You will get a drop down menu, and one of the choices is "create page"
Click it and follow the instructions.

btlandis, that depends on what you are going to use it for and what your niche is. If you can't find a category that fits, chose community.
If you are in the make money niche, chose business.

Just checked and I see your niche is wine, you might want to go for food/restaurant category......

If you are talking about liking (sharing) A blogpost here at WA, it will always go on your personal account, there are no option to chose (yet). All you have to do is then go to your personal account and share it from there to your business page.

Yes. you should set up a facebook-page, and link it to your website. Build an audience, invite all the friends you have on your personal account. Post from your web-site to your page, and you can also share what you post on your page to your personal account.

Don't know what you mean with "send the like".... but the main thing is that as many people as possible see your post and hopefully click on it to be taken to your web-site.
Reply
PaulNL Premium
Thanks for the reply. The 'send the like' question was: if I click the FB like button at the top of this blog post presumably the link will go directly to my personal FB profile not a 'page that I manage'? I would presumably have to then post this link onto the desired fan page on FB afterwards? Hope this is a bit clearer?
Reply

I have never shared to facebook from here, so I don't know if they give you the choice to post to your page. If not, post to your personal account and share it from there to your page

Just checked, you don't get the choice....

TDe Young. What I do for easy access is to either add to my "imprtent" folder in my email, when you get a notification email that I have commented on this thread now.....or add this blog to my favorites in my browser. If you use notepad you can copy the answer you want to save there, or make a note somewhere that says "facebook" and the name of the person you would like to ask further questions to if you get trouble. There is no way to save a comment here without saving the whole page. Hope that helps :-)

You are right Viveca. I have not been able to share any content from WA anywhere on FaceBook. You can share content from your own blog post.

But you have to be sure to not be SPAMMY, (Posting on your friends timelines). Post in your newsfeed or your own timeline and business groups.

There are a lot of business groups you can post an image, 10 words and a link back to your blog.

Your blog will provide content with your sign up (or affiliate) link woven in.

The image you use to promote needs to be your own and not WA banners because you are promoting the content on your blog.

The first sentence is kind of confusing, "Did you know that you can earn referrals simply by sharing content here at WA? It reads like you are to share content here at WA (in the WA community). I had to read it a couple of times to understand what was being said.

Perhaps writing it as, "Did you know that you can earn referrals simply by sharing WA content on other websites?" would make it clear from the first read. Just a suggestion.
