Newbie Traffic School

OEP part 2

byKLRrider

This tutorial is dedicated to all the Newbies who have just joined Wealthy Affiliate.

I highly recommend a complete read of this tutorial before taking action to limit mistakes.

This is the sequel to the Newbie Jump Start OEP part 1 that hopefully you have already read and implemented.

If you haven't, you can view it here: Newbie Jump Start OEP part 1

@ jaymekl... thanx for the positive comment.. Taking action is a big hurdle for most of us, myself included. It is also difficult at first to get your brain adjusted to the IMing mindset but gradually the fog clears. Wish you the best and always here to help!

I am working the second part of the tutorial and when I got to using Rapid Writer there are a lot of things you mention, that I do not find. For example I did not find the "Campaign List" or the "Keyword to Research". I understand that there have been changes to Rapid Writer, so can you help me with this? Thanks!

Some features of RW have been left behind... not sure if they will be returned. I have since gone to using a text editor and saving my articles in a folder on my computer. Need to get the tutorial updated and that has been not functioning either. I would suggest naming a folder on your computer after your campaign and keeping the relevant articles there. You can save your keyword research here at WAU using the keyword tool and creating a keyword list. I also keep my keywords in a file on my computer now.

Thanks - the first tutorial was easy for this newbie and I have my domain and am ready to digest the second part! I love that you got me to "just do it" when I still really have little idea of what I am doing or where I will end up. Well done you!

This tutorial is in the process of being updated to OEP. Editorial changes have been made but approval is pending.

I will post when all is completed.

In the mean time I apologize for some of the outdated images.

The content is still spot on.

To reefswimmer,
comparechoosebuy.com is a good site name. This is going to allow you to promote multiple products under one domain. You will have to create a separate page to optimize for each keyword. For example it would be way easier to get comparechosebuy.com/buy-wealthy-affiliate.html to rank in the search engines that the root domain page comparechosebuy.com.

Keyword phrases need to be in the URL, title, description, and header tags for the best SEO results. Once that is done then it is mostly about building back links with your keyword as anchor text.

Wish you the best.

hey thx for this great article, full of useful and specific details! This is my second read, and I noticed your update re: EZA not liking the word "buy".
I own the domain name comparechoosebuy.com
It is for a review site with multiple landing pages---do I need to get rid of the domain and use one without the word "buy" ??? Do u have any experience with that?
is that a question I might ask EZA ???
Diane, reefswimmer and happy WA newbie

Hello KLRider, I had never taken the time to leave a comment on one of your tutorials, because I wanted to make sure I'd read the all thing before I did. This is a great straight forward tutorial for newbies. With all those great tutorials, sometimes we wonder why there are so many basic questions on the forum. No forum comment could give that much detailed information :) GREAT job.

I copy and paste into Ezine from a text document. I use RW for keyword research and optimization and also to store a copy of my article "offshore" so to speak. I don't see why you couldn't copy and paste from RW to Ezine but have never tried it.

Sometimes it is better to copy and past from a straight text file (I do this) otherwise there is extra editing to be done from the code that runs in the background on word and similar programs that the fields don't understand or won't accept. This may be what you are experiencing.

I would suggest copying to a text editor first than to Ezine.

Hey, Thanks for all the great information. I wrote my first article today, and then joined EzineArticles. I did everything you said to do, but I must have done something wrong. I'm trying to submit my article, but it won't let me copy and paste it. How do I get my article from rapid writer to EzineArticles? I hope you can help me out. Thanks again.

Rapid Writer is a tool to write your articles in... a sort of text document on steroids for an article marketer.

Once you have completed the article you will still have to copy and paste it to your lens or the article submission site.

If you have a larger article, say 500 or more words for a lens it might be better to split it up into 2 or 3 modules... then your sub headings will have more impact.

If you submit an article written in RW to an article site then be sure, in your resource box, its links point to your lens if you are not direct linking with a forwarded domain.

Do you remember the childrens story about the Hare and the Turtle?

All Newbies, including myself even now, try to consume all this information as fast as possible and are unable to actually digest everything completely.

Slow down and take your time. Be patient and make steady progress each day. While waiting for articles to be approved don't pace the floor, rather do something constructive.

And by all means keep up with the study program here at WA.


The Best to All of You and Again... Thanks!
