We all want to be profitable online, right?

I think emphatically, the answer there from you and others is yes. However, the times have changed on the Internet and the way we do business has slightly changed.

Take us back just a few years ago and Google was pretty relaxed on what sort of content you put on your site, and how many pages your site was. In fact, in 2005 they didn't even care if your content was relevant to the keyword you were targeting (with PPC). You could advertise the keyword "dog training" and promote a make money related product on the other side.

And trust me...people were doing crazy things like this. It wasn't "quality" marketing and those of us who marketed for "quality" back then were relieved when we saw the Quality Score algorithm introduced and people being slammed for being for a better word, "marketing idiots".

Here we are today. Every aspect of marketing not only requires a website these days, it requires a well built website...one that:

(1) Is Relevant to the Keywords
(2) Is Unique from other sites and other pages on your site'
(3) Is a multi-page, relevant themed site
(4) One that follows all of the other SEO and PPC techniques

This may sound like a lot, but there is an easy way to accomplish what you need with a website these days. A quality website is no longer something that only "techies" can do and it no longer takes days or even hours to set-up.

Within this tutorial we are going to explain the benefit of WordPress blogs, why using WordPress Express (here within WA) simplifies everything, and how to drive traffic and sales to your WordPress sites.

By the end of this you will be INFORMED and ready to take a chunk of the Internet with your very own WordPress Blogs.

I think WordPress is an excellent place to build a site. I also, just began putting together my site content. I want to get all of that organised before I build my site. I know this is good, but how soon can you start building your site before your site is seen by other people?

Your site will be minimally public until you verify with search engines and are indexed. You can share your site via direct links to your pages though.

You can start building your site right away -- step by step, post by post, and as you get it indexed and as you get the word out, it will start to be seen, and ranked...

No one is going to see your site in most cases. It takes time for Google to rank your website. So don't worry about going live.

I desperately need your assistance RE Lesson 1, under this Topic: Make Money With WordPress - Traffic Getting/Revenue Driving Forces

For the past 2 days or so, I've been battling with my new website.
I am struggling to proceed beyond the All In One SEO Plug in, terms of the Lesson, I suspect the version that is used within the lesson is an older version of app. So with my newer version, the page that follows after clicking "activate" is not the same as the one in the lesson, and as such it takes me to a different direction/page.

I hope you understand my frustration. Please help.

This is the first part of the training so far that I am totally confused about. I do not understand the Permalink thing, or what the options page is. "Your blog is now set up to create links and meta tags," this is also not something currently in my wheelhouse of knowledge or brain-bank.

Hi Yinka,
You have to do the lessons in the green left button "Certification".
Kyle teaches everything you need to build your website, just do the lessons.

I went into the website I am trying to create but the name at the top is not what I want. I know I mentioned this name in a note to someone, but have decided on another name which does show up but when I go to the website it does not. How can this be fixed?

Baby Accessories Plus is my domain name and Future Fortunes is my Website.

Hi RDunkinson,
Your domain name is your website, so, it is the same.

Hi Ruth, I am not sure I understand your question. I went to your website and it said it's ready to have a site installed to it which you can do here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/build

Within that link you should see your domain be listed. After you pick it, you should be able to build the site as you want it.

the http://internetmarketingstartup.net link doesn't go through, and the link on previous pages where it said 'click here to join Strip that Fat' . . . or is it my PC.

Loads of lovely information though. Thank you for all of this.

Me overwhelmed? Nooooo .......
Oh, alright then, may be a tincy lot.

Just for the admin to correct spelling mistake here in bracket.. Cheers

(8) Reader Involvement (comments)

Comments are very powerful. They allow you to get feedback on your site, have people tell you how special you are, and ultimately have other people creating content for you that may get picked up by the serach (miss spell word) engines.

I was viewing the question about the different kinds of membership and it said there was the free one and premium membership only but in the lesson about WordPress it says Platinum members of WA get access to install unlimited WordPress sites using WP Express. So my question is - Is Premium membership and Platinum membership the same thing?
Reply
onmyownterms Premium
Yes, Premium and Platinum are the same thing.

So if we stay with the free membership , we can't use wordpress?

Also, i'm so confused on backlinks now. I just had an email exchange w/Kyle recently and i thought i understood him to advise me NOT to worry about backlinks. Also, I was trying to understand article directories and googled it and found many articles saying that it's no longer relevant.

Can someone please clarify for me? Thanks so much in advance!

I played around with the Word Press Expression. or Rubix for a bit. Being familiar with Dream Weaver and Sublime Text I'm not as familiar with Word Press as I'd like to be I took some time and went though the Admin. Just fiddled around and testing some features. I'd recommend newbies pick up a book on how to use Word Press and watch Youtube videos unless Wealthy Affiliates provide training for Word Press in the premium membership area. I can see how Word Press would assist a new person or none technical person. My critic with this is the limitation of design options and layout options, anyone familiar with Dream Weaver or Sublime Text will know what I mean here.

I got an email invitation for a class on All-in-one SEO for Friday at 5pm but when I tried to register it said I had to be a premium member. Since I just joined I thought I a had access to these classes for my first 7 days. Is this not the case?
Reply
FHagstrom Premium
As a starter member, you get access to certain premium features for the first 7 days such as being able to ask questions in the community, in blogs here and in chat but the live video classes are a premium only feature, good luck to you here

You will have access to the first ten lessons in the Get Started Here section as a "free member". Also, you will have to training created by other WA members who marked their training available to all members, premium or not. For example, when I created my WA training, I did not detect it to be just for premium members, but for ALL members, free and premium. For Jay's training, because his training is SUPERB, you do need to be a premium (paying) member. It would not be fair to grant access to everything regardless of whether or not you are a paying member, because you want the premium members to have benefits from their monthly or yearly payments.

I hope that clarifies somethings.

What could this mean on choosing a domain for SEO: "Choose your domains wisely...or own a lot of them as the name alone can lead to great search engine rankings."

Is this refering to doorway domains (microsites or pages that have been created to direct traffic to the actual usable or relevant part of the website(s))?, because I just read an article that Google tightened their quality guidelines for doorway pages, since it lengthens the process for the user to actually get to their target page, thus leading to a lower rank.

When you choose your domain name it would be easy to remember, have 15 characters or less, be brandable, a com .org or .net You can make it with keywords but not important as long as it is relevant to your niche.

All google wants you to do is have good content that is writen for the reader and not optimized to please the search engine. I think what you read is a black hat sort of thing and you should stay away from it. Yes Google has tightened it's ssecurity on these kind of sites. That includes pack keyords on a page and then changing the font color to match the color of the background. Stuffing keywords on a page that means nothing to the reader.

I hope this helps

Thanks RoyDale that was indeed helpful! But this black hat sort of thing that I read was in this lesson! Page 3 of 21 specifically, last line.. Does that mean this tutorial sometimes teaches black hat techniques we shouldn't follow?

I Love all this information I've been going through all the additional training on the site here I've been looking for a way to put my store website on one of my domains from Go Daddy that I had transferred to WA and was wondering if I need to transfer the domain back to Go Daddy cause I don't know how to put the DNS in

Hi Coleen,

You need to get the name server numbers from your hosting account company and then go to Go Daddy, log in and go to Domains, choose the Domain, click it then Manage domains and in settings go to name servers then click manage and add name servers and then click on the blue circle with a x inside to remove the the prior name servers. Once that's done click on save and it should be up and running from approximately 15 minutes to 1 hour. Any questions call Go Daddy direct at Support (480) 505-8877 available 24/7. Hope that helps!

Yes I did and I just tried it again and it doesn't seem to be working still. SO, I just happen to think that I didn't upgrade to the newest version of wordpress yet so I did that and low and behold, it worked. How about that hey? lol

I messed around with it for two to three days before I even thought of this, pretty dumb! thank you for always willing to help here at WA. I love this place.
