OK, awesome. You now have your niche, in other words, the direction for your brand & business. That is great and don't worry about this not being "perfectly clear" at this point, as you move forward the pieces of the puzzle are going to come together.

Starting with a big piece today, your website. We are going to be taking our niche idea and turning it into a tangible business starting with your website.

Building a Website Ain't Scary, It's FUN!

Building a website sounds like a "scary" process, but fortunately you have access to the most advanced, yet simplistic website platform in the world here at Wealthy Affiliate. We pride ourselves as a technology company here at Wealthy Affiliate and we are the industry leaders in the website development space.

I am not going to toot our horn any longer, I would rather you experience the website builder and platform for itself. The first step today is going to be building your website, which will literally take you less than 30 seconds.

Click the SiteBuilder link

within the menu, and you are going to be ready to rock here (and complete the next task).

Below I have included a "Building Your Website in Under 30 Seconds" video walking you through the Website Platform (also known as SiteRubix) here at WA and showing you how quickly and efficiently you can build a website here at Wealthy Affiliate.

 

Task 1: Build Your Website

Your website is your foundation of your business. It is where all of your traffic is ultimately going to come to, where you are going to build brand and trust within the industry, and where you can promote products/services and generate $$$!

The SiteBuilder platform here at WA is the most simplistic, yet advanced in the industry. It is going to take less than 30 seconds to get a fully operational, profit ready Wordpress website up and running online.

There are 4 steps in the website build process, that I am going to walk you through here. To access the SiteBuilder and EVERYTHING related to your website, you will simply click the light blue "SiteRubix" button in the main menu.

Step 1: Choose the Kind of Website

There are really TWO options here, on a FREE website or on your OWN domain. Ideally, you will have your own domain, but that can come with time.

You can "register" your very own domains right within Wealthy Affiliate using our state of the art SiteDomains platform, which will allow you to instantly set-up your own domain for your own use.

If you are just starting out as a Starter member, you will be building a website on the .siterubix.com domain, which is a completely free website. You can build and host your own FREE website as a Starter.

As a Premium member, you can build and host up to 10 websites (including websites on your own domain). That is more than adequate to drive many multi-million dollar businesses over time and our hosting platform is industry leading in terms of speed, security, and reliability...all critical factors to running a successful online business.

For the sake of this training, we are going to be choosing "On a free domain".

Do know that within the Premium membership, you can easily MOVE a free .siterubix.com button to a registered domain (one you own) using the "Premium Only" MOVE feature. So by all means start off with a free website and then down the road you can easily move it to your own domain.

Step 2: Choose a Domain

Remember last lesson when I chose my "niche". In this step, I am going to be choosing a name for my website and placing it in the "domain name" field. This is because this will be my website URL and my brand moving forward.

As you can see below, I have added my brand "how to lose belly fat today" into the domain field.


When you type in your domain, it will let you know if it is available or not. In my case it was, but if your first choice is not available simply do another search until you find a domain name that works for you.

You cannot put spaces in your domain name, hence why my domain is "howtolosebellyfattoday".

Step 3: Choose a Website Name

The name of your website should match your domain, but it just needs to be grammatically correct (with proper spacing). You can see below my example of this:

Domain: basketballskillsanddrills.stierubix.com

Title: Basketball Skills and Drills

It is as simple as that. Don't overthink this step, your title will be the same as your domain.

Step 4: Choose a Design

The last step is choosing a "look" for your theme. As a Starter member you will have access to ONE theme that has been hand picked for quality, speed, security, and overall theme design.

As a Premium Member though you will have access to over 4,134 designs (as shown below) or your website and there are always new designs being added to this daily. These are referred to as "Themes".

Choose a design that you like.

Click on the design you like, and then you will be able to build your site.

SiteRubix, a Next Level Website and Hosting Platform.

You are going to notice that there are many other website features allocated within the SiteRubix menu. I don't want to eat up too much of your time here, but it is important that you understand the incredible benefits of the SiteRubix platform.

  • SiteBuilder (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteDomains (Starter & Premium)

To make your sites secure and fast, we have some SiteRubix EXCLUSIVE technologies to make sure your websites are operating at lightening speeds, but also in a very secure way that protects you from hackers, spammers, and all forms of erroneous attacks.

There you have it, the low down of the SiteRubix platform and you have your website officially up and running online. Exciting stuff!

I notice these two features on Site Content "SEO analysis and checks" and "Content structure analysis" I have used Site Content as least half a dozen times and I have never noticed these features in use..

So,are they no longer extant or did I miss them somehow. If they are longer available maybe they should be removed from the list of features that Site Content provides.

Thanks

Hiya..That was such a great response to @LCrombie. I've learnt it's best to have different websites for different niches. Assuming my niche is mobile accessories& I intend to start with marketing security cameras, should my domain be something like "securitycamera" or "mobile accesories", or "esiezafmobileaccessories."? Do I need to have my name in the domain or not necessarily?

Hi Esiezaf - Domain names are important for sure, but the days of having a domain name that exactly matches your niche are long gone. If you can get a domain name with your exact niche it can't hurt, but don't sweat it if you can't find it available. It it more important that you domain name is short if possible - under 15 characters is great. Another thing to think about is could you build a strong brand around the domain name. Unless you are planning to brand yourself, and make yourself the focus in your marketing, I wouldn't use your name in the domain name. I hope this helps. You are off to a great start.

Voilà, je viens de finir ma première leçon mais j'ai quelques inquiétudes.
En fait, je suis d'un pays francophone malheureusement le site et son contenu son anglais. N'y a-t-il pas des contenus en français car pour le site j'ai quand même pu configurer un traducteur sur mon navigateur ?
Par ailleurs, je viens déjà de créer un site web mais je ne sais comment le rendre présentable, il y a un cours pour cela pour devrais-je avoir accès à un quelconque outil dans le site?

Merci.

Malheureusement, tout est en anglais, donc vous devrez peut-être utiliser le traducteur que vous avez si vous voulez continuer

No the original message was in French. And I don't want to get into trouble. So, you might try a translator program to translate the original post. I sort of mentioned that in the post too. I hope I don't get into trouble for mentioning that?

Yea I can't understand a word of any of that. Why would you get in trouble? Is it something that I need to read? I mean like are they talking to me and if so is that something important?? Bc if not then I'm good and not worried about figuring it out. Unless it's something that could really help me. Then I guess I'll take the time out to try to figure out what their all saying. Just Saying Lol

Oh Ok, That's what is was wondering. It said Viola or something like that and that's why I thought they were trying to say something to me. Please just excuse me, I'm kind of ditsy or silly. I Don't really know how to say it.lol Well I'll just say I'll probably end up asking Alot of Dumb or Maybe even Questions with the Answer being Obvious throughout all these lessons. I swear it seems like I'm even getting more ditsy the older I get. Which is unfortunate for me..... But it's Hilarious To My Family. Just Saying. 😂🤷🤣

I am kinda confused about the keywords and writing articles.
when I pick up a phrase.

Does it have to be 100% accurate?
For example. if I fit in my title "Diapers FOR Babies"
it won't show in google if someone type "Diapers Babies"?

both words are inside of "Diapers for Babies".

B. about stuffing:

should I really be careful not to repeat any sentence or words that I write? aren't there some rules or something ? for example, Google will approve stuffing the same keyword up to 5 times?

I'd happy to have more clarification on that.

Thank you, good people

Good question Ido and a common one. When you choose your keywords to search, yes you want them to make sense. You'll get more accurate research results using 'diapers for babies' or best diapers for babies' instead of just diapers babies. For using the keywords in your article, you want to use it in your title, the first paragraph and maybe at the end of your article ie. in the conclusion or summary paragraph. Hope this answers your question and helps you.

Hello,
I'm stuck at Creating my Custom Menu
My page is bit different from Kyle's tutorial where I can only see Menu Name and below that (and add menu from the column on the left). I seem to be missing Home &
Privacy Policy.
When I check on left on Post, I have others and not the ones mentioned above.
For your information and help with thanks.

try click on view all on the pages in the menu - it may show more pages you should be able to find your privacy policy - assuming you have created one....( posts or pages whichever you have created)
for the home - choose a custom menu item and add your url address and description of home.
good luck
phil
