NICHES. The scariest word for most people when starting out. However, the idea of a niche should not scare you. Instead it should be exciting.

What is a Niche?

A niche is a distinct segment of a market, in other words an "audience".

When choosing a niche that fits you, you should be choosing something that is ideally an interest, a passion, a hobby, but it could be something that you would like to learn about. You don't need to BE an expert, you BECOME an expert.

I personally enjoy many different things. I enjoy basketball, I used to collect baseball cards, I like to go skiing, I am really interested in men's fashion, exercise, internet marketing, and I love everything about the online business world.

There are also many niches over the years that I have been very successful within without knowing anything about them before getting into them. Dieting, voice over IP, hosting...are just a few.

Almost anything you can think of is a niche and that is why we are going to get you to choose YOUR niche based on things that you are interested in. You can earn money online from absolutely every single niche because there are billions of people out there searching for information, for solutions, and spending billions of dollars or products/services every day.

The idea of a niche can be a little confusing at first, so I have created a video walk-through for this lesson that is going to walk you through what a niche is, how you earn money through a niche, and I will get you choosing your initial direction online.

Check out the video below.



DISCUSS THIS VIDEO HERE:
Choosing Your Direction - It Starts With a Niche
!

Your online business should not feel like a day job. Earning money online should be fun, and it is fun. This all starts with choosing a niche that you are interested in and will enjoy working with.

The MORE you enjoy doing something the LESS it feels like a job and the more productive you are going to be. Carson and I are immensely passionate about online business and teaching people how to make money online, so that is the niche we have chosen with Wealthy Affiliate.

Your niche could be anything, but at the core of your niche selection it should be something that you "like". Something you enjoy. Something you can talk about. Something you want to learn about.

Task 1: Choose Your Direction

We want you to select the niche that interests you most and gets you the most excited.

A few things that you should understand about niches are:

(1) You are going to be writing content within your niche
(2) You are going to be communicating within your niche
(3) You are going to be choosing products to promote within your niche
(4) You are going to get to help people within your niche.
(5) Your first niche PROBABLY won't be your last (so don't worry about it being perfect)
(6) Any SINGLE niche website can become a "full time" income/business

There is NO SUCH THING as choosing the wrong niche.

Also, note that you can always change your niche down the road. Just because you are choosing a niche now does not mean you will be in this particular niche forever. Either way, please do not spend a week choosing your niche. Within the next 15-30 minutes (maximum) you should have your "starting point" niche chosen.

If you have any questions about your niche, feel free to leave a question below and we will help you out.

If you are REALLY STUCK at this point and you cannot decide on a niche, perhaps you may be interested in the make money/affiliate marketing niche. If you don't have a niche at this point, this will be your niche and we have an Affiliate Bootcamp dedicated to those that are interested in promoting Wealthy Affiliate.

==> Go here if that is you.

Onto the next lesson, building a website! Exciting stuff is ahead! :)

Question:

when looking at a niche, a review site for example, where we would review various products, kitchen, home products, etc..

Is it best to stay specific such as only do kitchen product reviews and use a domain with kitchen in it?

OR

Is it ok to go wider and use a more generic domain name and review a wider variety of products?

Which works best for SEO or does it even matter?
Reply
edensbox Premium
I would think about how small you want to go really. It depends on you. Is there enough products that you can continue to do your reviews? If you feel that there isn't then go a little larger so that you have more options.

Make sure you do your research on your keywords for each group to see how many options you might really have. It will take a little time doing your research but in the end it will really pay off.

The other part of your question about using kitchen in your domain name, you don't have to use your keyword as your domain name. You could choose anything you think would be relevant or make sense. Remember you are building your brand and you start with your domain name.

Ultimately the choice is yours.
Reply
ScottLindsa1 Premium
I thought it was important to try and use some keywords in your domain name.

I know there is debate on that, but it seems that in most niches the sites that rank still seem to have something related to the niche in their domain name. Maybe this is not true across the board but in niches I have looked at it seems this way.

If you have content be sure to save it but you can have multiple free sites if that is what you meant by site-rubix so save the content so far and then do a new name.

How much cost a domain name with WA,is that a yearly expense?
Why is it recommended to get one?
For a start,as a premium member,can I use the 50 free sites offered in site rubix without having to buy a domain?
I am not sure I understand the whole concept!

billy947 Premium
1st it's 25 siterubix websites, which cost nothing as long as U are premium. A .Com or a .net site would cost less than $15.00. And have another 25 sites as long as you buy a .com or .net etc for each one.

Thanks for the reply.
If I read you correctly I could built 25 sites with WA with no cost other then being Premium and if I want to buy a domain it would cost less than 15$,is that cost with WA?

MariaMarcus Premium
WA offers the "land" for free for every member here. If you want to buy your own "house" on this land, (a website without the extension http://xyz.siterubix.com, as you don't like how your site name looks) will cost you 14$/year, it will have the form -http://www.yourdomain.com and yes, you can buy it from here. You go in the left hand menu, site rubix -> site builder > register a domain (the right side option in green).
You can buy upto 25 domains with the .com (but it will be 14$/year each, so of course everyone recommends only one at the beginning, especially that you would need to have 25 different niches for 25 sites!) and you can still use the other 25 free websites on the subdomain site rubix. Personally, I have a free site-rubix and a domain website, with total different topics, and I can deal with them both, but if I would have 20 free sites and 10 domains....I think I would be in a lunatic house by now :)))

Hi Kristyelder,

I just checked the video and I see that it is not happening to me.

I have a laptop where I have to use a square slider to the cursor. Many times, my laptop does similar as you describe and I can only put it down to my hands cast a shadow too close to it and brushing off of it.

Try again without your hands near your one, if indeed, you do have a similar laptop to mine.

For me, the video is playing just fine.

I know its going to take a lot of time and work on my part . I am excited and full of hope "will" to make this happen. I tried this before but I was just not in the right set of mind. I felt overwhelmed starting without a plan on what niche or what business set up I want. So, I thought it over and wrote everything down. So now I have plan I have to work on using WA resources. I want to start earning at least $4000.00 monthly so I can be at home full time. And more after reaching that of course. Good luck to my fellow aspiring entrepreneurs. Glad to not to make this journey alone.

Well my nitch is chosen, and my web site is being built. My passion is the guitar, which I have been playing for awhile, so I'm excited to be starting out with focusing on guitar strings for now, and then digging deeper into playing guitar, as well as guitar maintenance, as I really get this business on the road. Perhaps I will learn some new stuff about the guitar as well. Very exciting!

If you are a Premium member, you can use the Move feature to move all of the old content from the old domain to your new one and this will make it so you don't lose any of your existing work you have done on your domain.

Did you buy your new domain name yet? It can be anything you like, it does not have to be the same as in Siterubix.

You will be able to use the one-click process to move your siterubix site to your own domain name. Think carefully about the name you choose for your 'owned' domain because once it is paid for and registered, you will not be able to change it. ~Jude

Hello all. I'm new starter, and need help with "choose your nicle". I have two ideas about nicle:
1. 1st Nicle: must- have things in home for cat lovers. I don't know what i am going to write the content of this nicle on my future post ( since i'm at step "choosing nicle"). This nicle is specific enough or not? If not, any suggestion. Thank you.
2. 2nd nicle: refresh your skin to impression your love ones. Should I sign up affiliate program before i post the content about this nicle? Or This nicle doesn't good enough? Thank you.
Reply
judebanks Premium
You can certainly build out either of those niches. Choose the one you enjoy the most and can see yourself writing a lot of content and not get bored.

I personally like cat lovers because it is a more specific target market and therefore a bit easier to do well with it.

Do not sign up for any affiliate programs until you do the training that tells you to do so. First you must put content on your website and start building traffic. Some affiliate programs will not accept your website if they see little content and no traffic so that comes first. ~Jude

Easy start of a web page, thank you. Two questions, first of all on the web page it has the first post on it and says to edit or delete, but I can not find how to do that. I can add new posts and edit top title area. I am sure it is simple, just not seeing it. Second question, I was stupid and bought my own domain and had it put into Hostgator, can I transfer that from Hostgator and into here, or am I wise to run that host out and use it in some way? thanks
Reply
JGuhlke Premium
Unfortunately you cannot transfer that domain until 60 days I believe. For the other question, you have to look at the All Posts area, find the post you want to edit or delete, and move the mouse to that area. i think the little menu becomes visible only when you mouse over it.

The part to get them interested in trying this opportunity will be in french.What kind of keyword should I be looking at that would be in french to catch the interest of google and others seo to rank my page at the top and also the person doing the research.

Very informative, but in my opinion, It's a good idea to create a landing page, not actually landing page but a website that you can promote only one specific product for example make money online or how to give up smoking or something else and with your content and your promotional and motivational words do them to purchase.Do you believe that this works better than other more general websites?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
More general websites will work better long term. If you are selling just one product, then yes, a landing page can work as a way to promote the product, but you still have to send traffic there!

With a multi-page website you actually get organic traffic from Google to your website. With a single-page landing page, you'll be reliant on paid traffic or referral traffic. Google simply won't rank a single-page website most of the time!

Having multiple resources for them to buy...example when I buy something from Amazon they show me what other people who purchased the product I bought also purchased...and many times people who purchase a product want the "add on" products...example maybe I want to buy a reverse osmosis water filtration system...so I would offer them books on water and things related to water products, or other whole house water features.

Hi everyone, so I've finished the level 1 training but I can't afford for premium at the moment. And now I'm confused about how do I become affiliated with.. let's say amazon?
I tried looking for how to add links but then I found that I have to become an affiliate of amazon first so I can get the credit. So how do I do that? for amazon or maybe some other affiliates

I think I missed something from the lesson tho, but I only have 22 hours left to ask questions, so I kind of want to use it and say hi to everyone :)

Hi, and welcome to your online journey.
have you gone through the bootcamp level 1 training - i think this is free also.
becoming an affiliate with amazon is just apply for the affiliate status on the relevant amazon site - but in america you need sales within the first 6 months or your account is terminated, don't let that scare you though.
Concentrate on looking for opportunities to add value to others, promote WA - if you manage to get a few referrals then you can afford to upgrade to premium.
or if your niche is really hungry and you know what they need - find this through google as an affiliate program.
You can practice adding links with your affiliate link ( click on the airplane above - linksaand tracking)
to add a link you copy the link and then highlight the text you want the link inserted in and click the chain menu item - paste the link into te box - click on the gear and tick the open in a new window - then click ok.
you have done it.
If you are committed to this and are really enjoying it, get the money together for a yearly subscription - you don't need to worry about it then. start with te $19 first month discount, make sure you really enjoy it and then go yearly.
Good luck with your online journey

You sign up as an Amazon Affiliate from Amazon's website. Here is the link...

Well, I'm on starter plan so I can't post a link here but its at the bottom of Amazon's main page.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You will get there as you go through the training, the first focus with your website is to build out the foundation, the content and get rankings. Once you have rankings and traffic then you can focus on what you are going to promote.

There are 10,000's of affiliate programs and millions of products you are going to be able to promote as an affiliate, don't ever worry about there being nothing to promote within a given niche. There will likely be 100's if not 1,000's of things you can promote. ;)

There is no sense in putting to much thought into what you are going to promote until you have content in place and an audience to promote to. You will definitely get there though!

If you went to the SiteRubix Manager and did not see your website there, with a Log in button, then you don't have a Domain and Website set up. If you followed all the steps and it is very recent, then just wait a bit longer for WA 's system to finish getting it live.

How much do I have to spend? All the features you want me to use like Plug-ins want me to pay money and go Premium. I'm sick of being asked to spend more and more when I haven't made a god damn dime off of this yet, especially since the $50 that Wealth Affiliates costs to be premium just overdrew my checking account yesterday and cost me a $39.00 overdraft fee.

For now, that $50 is enough. You do not need to spend more. Maybe later when you finish your lesson and already understand how money is being made online.

Just go on with the lessons, learn from Kyle, and you will see the big picture of all these things assembled together to help you succeed online.

JackieSmith Premium
Sorry to hear about the overdraft.
There are no upsells here.
Plugins are free, themes are free. You can make use of these free tools to create a decent website.
Once you have gone through the training you may decide to purchase items to support your business; I recently purchased a Premium theme however, its not necessary. It was my own choice as I like the idea that I can make changes to the code and tweak things exactly how I want.

Stick with the training. You will see that it is worth it in the end.

All the best.

Maddy55 Premium
I have been here now for over a year, and I am building my second website. I never go Pro or upgrade on a plug in or Theme, there are plenty of free ones that work very well. Remember, someone made those Themes and Plug ins, with their own talent and time, and the only way they see a dime, is if someone upgrades. I went yearly about 6 months in, because it's cheaper and I know that it can take a website 6 months to a year to become successful (depending also on the quality of the content and effort). I had a couple of serious set backs on my first website, it became unverifyed twice, meaning my website became disconnected from Google. It's been about 3 1/2 months now since fixing it again, and I recently made $8 commission on a $100 product that someone bought. I get frustrated too, as I have spent so much time and effort on my site. I am trying a different niche entirely now, hoping it makes money quicker than my first. No business is built in a couple of months or even a year. I love writing, so this is my choice.

I completely understand how you feel and it is common to feel that way at the start. There will be a rough period at the start where you are doing the right things consistently and not getting any results. Pushing through this period will pay off as each action builds on each other until the traction will blow you away. Overall advice: Focus on the power of one. One thing until it's done and then move onto the next thing. You will accomplish much more this way.
Advice on getting started: take each lesson one at a time and do the tasks. Share your success even if it's just finishing the lessons and completing the tasks.

You are in the right place for online success.

Im having one concern. what if I can't afford to get the premium training right now and can't afford a domain? I don't know if having a free domain will hold me back because of the way it looks with the a Actual website included. Does that matter with online businesses ?

Thank you so much!!

There is no rush for you to go Premium. Just follow the training, and the free domain will be fine for you to get started with. The themes look fine and many people have done well over time with them. You can always transfer it to your own domain once you start making money. Please feel free to ask for help if you have any questions. You have a very supportive community ready to help you. You can do this!

Hi Kyle Goodmorning, how are you doing sir? Please i a question. I bought my domain name yesterday but when I clicked the site manager so that I can move my website to my domain name, it shows me this page that says NO WORDPRESS WEBSITE INSTALLED but down below it by the side it by the side it says install website and beside it too, it says details. So I don't know if I should go ahead and click the install website or to click details. And to let you know I have not done anything about website here since I started this. So please help me I don't know what to do at this point. I want to be able to move my website to my domain name.

Hi, Good morning!

I know your ready to get things moving so I can help you with this...your going to choose the button that says, "MOVE"

A menu will pop up and it'll give you two choices select

"To an Existing Domain", then choose your new domain name you purchased from the drop down.

If you have never purchased any other domain with WA you'll one see one domain name there, so select it...


Then click "I'm Ready, Move My Site!".


Now your website should be moved. Here is a tutorial by Kyle to help.... How to Transfer a SiteRubix Website to Your Own Domain
I hope this helps...let me know if you need any further help...

Hi Kisha thanks for helping me out. So I think I have start building my website before I can move it to my domain because I have not done anything about website here since I started.

lakbar12 Premium
You're Welcome! I was just moving trying to help you move forward and misread the info. So, my apologies....

Oh! Are you saying you do not have a website to move? You just purchased a domain? Correct?

If that is the case then you will just go to SiteRubix on the left. You will find it in the light blue color.

Select SiteBuilder, then select on a domain I own

Select the upside down arrow your domain should appear

Then enter your website tittle, which will be the same as you domain name.

Select any theme that you want, you can preview them before you decided on the finally one. And, if you decide that you do not like the theme you can always change it later. I've changed mine 3 times with no problems. Not all themes offer the same features so, it is best to preview them if you are looking for certain features.


After you select the theme, click the green button that says
"click here to build the Site"

Here is a tutorial, that can help you through but instead of using
Siterubix.com you are going to replace it with yourowndomain.com
Okay hope this helps, let me know if you get stuck. I will do my best in helping you move forward...

I need help on two issues. 1. if you purchase a domain name here, do you have to pay for the hosting or your website will be automatically hosted?
2. Is there cost associated with transferring your domain from another registrar to WA and when you transfer your own domain, will it be automatically hosted on the SiteRubix platform or you will still pay for the hosting services?

Looking forward to your useful answers

Ben - welcome to WA.
if you puchase a domain here - you pay nothing extra for hosting - it is all included within your premium membership.
there is no cost fortransferring your domain and hosting here is included within your premium membership.
for free members, you have access to the two free sites.
Premium members have access to 25 free sites and hosting for 25 domains.
Hope that has helped a little

While there is no separate "transfer charge", there is a cost incurred to transfer the domain registration to WA. When you do the transfer, you will need to pay for one year of the regular domain registration fee. (That payment extends the domain's expiration date by a full year so you don't lose any of the registration period that you've already paid for.)

I've published my Privacy Policy page on my website, but I'm having a few issues. When I view my website I don't see the page at all...when I search for it in the search bar, it pulls up though. Is that normal? It might just be the theme I'm using. Also, even though it published as a page and I've checked the two boxes mentioned...it still has a comment section below?

Hi Blake,
I also published my privacy page as a page and it had the comment section. I went back into SiteRubix, clicked Site Manager and signed back in. I went to Page, All pages and did a quick edit on my Privacy Policy Page and unchecked comments. I hope this helps.

Best of Luck,

Jaaxy.... It's a great and very powerful tool to use as it gives global internet keyword search engines results...! Yahoo, Bing & Google. etc.

However I have some question about this, if Jaaxy gives the global internet search results with a targeted niche keyword(s), as per the Avg. - Traffic, - QSR, - KQI - SEO - Domains. What if my Niche Keyword is targeting a specific geographical area, like specific item for specific country, how do I filter that, or is there any way to filter it....?
Reply
midhunvm Premium
I too have this question.In my case what I have done is this.

Let's take "used cars" as an example.I have typed in the following
keyword in jaaxy: "used cars in [my local location]". In place of "my local location" I have provided my local area name.

Jaaxy returned keyword results.Looking at the different new keywords and their traffic it showed, I guess I got what I want.

This is my experience and I am not sure I am right or wrong.
Please try the same and if you have further questions please ask Kyle when he is in the live chat.Hope it helps

I'm not gonna ask "How long does it take to earn $5000 a month doing this", because there are so many different factors, but what I'd like to ask is: How long does it take to earn your first dollar doing this? I think the first one is the most important one because if you can replicate that ten thousand times you got yourself a lifestyle, and might be easier to answer, say, If I dedicate 1-2 hours a day, every day, taking action on every lesson and asking questions about what I don't know or understand? Thanks in advance.
Reply
lakbar12 Premium
That question still can not be answered. Nobody knows what the true answer is. They can tell you all kinds of scenarios but no one really knows.

There are millionaires that did not make their first dollar for 16 months but, today they are 7 figure earners.

There are people who made their first dollar within months and still not a millionaire.

I personally made my first dollar within 42 days but, I also work like 16 hours a day. Everyone work ethics is different and everyone will earn money at different rates.

You should never focus on the money, just focus on getting started and following through.

Here is an article that can answer your question. I hope this helps.

It does help, and it's not that I don't believe in myself, it's just that I've come across so many online courses and methods to make money online, and there was a catch to most if not all of them, that I'm a bit suspicious when it comes to this, that's why I want to know how much work I have to put in before I see results, although the experience here so far has been very fun and doesn't feel like work at all.
Reply
lakbar12 Premium
I am glad that it did help and it is really good that you do believe in yourself. Yes, I completely understand. Most of the members here have experienced scams, money hungry programs, and all the above. You are in good hands here. Trust me!

How long will it take depends on how much you willing to work and how hard. I did make a couple small commissions recently and it took 42 days but, I work 12 to 16 hours a day. Most of the time I work 16 hours a day.

From what I seen people say, all their time frames vary. Anywhere between 3 months to even a year. I've even see longer...

Here read this.....

This member right here it took him 1 1/2 years to earn $1000 a month...Here read his blog.... But, guess what just yesterday he posted this...

Hi Community!

I have a simple question. I've actually gone on and started a second Website and I just finished writing and publishing the Privacy Policy AS A PAGE, in order to avoid the Comment Box. However, after it was published as a Page, I noticed that the Comment portion still appears at the end of the Policy. I forgot if there is anything else that I need to do in order to remove the Comments portion from this page once it is published.

Would appreciate some insight and comments. Thank you all in advance.

I'm new to WA and have decided to move my existing website for my side-hustle (computer consulting) over as well as additional non-computer related sites.

I have ten domains that could be used for different niche's... (sites for love/date, computer, make money, save money)

Would you recommend starting 10 different affiliate sites right out of the gate? I'm excited but trying to figure out how to monetize different the topics.

Do I focus on adding content before affiliate links?

Content brings in traffic, no content no traffic so no point to affiliate links. Running ten sites out of the gate would be a nightmare and I would focus on the highest potential and work down from there

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome
Hey Consumer World, welcome to the InwardReport.com. I just want to take a moment to say thank you for stopping at my website and I hope after reading this you will feel much safer and more informed about your Internet online shopping and product Consumer Reports.
A Little Tid Bit
I would like to start out by telling you a little bit about myself. It’s been a long road to get to this point in my life, so here’s a little insight into my journey. I was interested in finding a new source of revenue to support my ever-growing family but, I also wanted the luxury of work working from home when I choose to do so.
Throughout my working history I was never good at the standard 9 to 5 jobs. It was either a problem with my work schedule being at times that wasn’t conducive to my personal schedule, or I had issues with my employer or their standards of operations, or simply just the people I was working with.
I love trying new products and I also love helping others but, I struggled with trying to combine the two into one great service to help my fellow consumers, everyday people just like yourself. There is nothing more that makes me happy than spending time with my family, trying new products, helping others, traveling, outdoor activities, fine dining and woodworking. But just after spending time with my family, my two favorites of these would be trying new products and helping other people to better improve their day-to-day lives.
"For The Love Of" Helping Others
The reason I want to help people is because I love the world we live in and I want to see it get better every day. Whether that means introducing new products that enhance everyday consumer's lifestyles, interacting with new people to bring them comprehensive up-to-date consumer reports from all over the world and bringing people from all different walks of life closer together in a friendly and nonbiased community.
Introducing new products that can enhance consumer's lifestyles is very important to me. Reason being, I am also a consumer and just like you, I buy products. In most cases, when a consumer buys a product they have little to no knowledge about it. Here at InwardReport.com I aim to provide comprehensive up-to-date consumer reports on products that consumers generally have interest in. I want to give you information and help you find the best product that fits your needs in the most efficient way.
I love interacting with people from all walks of life daily. I don’t care if it's a grandma of seven grandchildren that works from home or the busboy at my favorite restaurant. To me, we are all the same in the end. I want us all to be well informed in our daily purchases. People deserve the right to shop online and to do it safety. I want to inform them on products so that they can do just that. For me to be allowed the privilege of day-to-day interactions with my fellow consumers is very rewarding. This is just a few of the reasons why I love to help people.
Mission Statement
My goal at InwardReport.com is that of giving people an inward report from an outsider’s perspective just like yourself. Who has nothing to gain from expressing his opinions and reviews on products, that I love and use. Except for the fact of helping my fellow consumers that is!!! I’m tired of people buying products that leave them very dissatisfied in the end. It may be due to cost, quality of the product or simply they didn’t buy what they actually thought they were buying.
I aim to provide my readers with the most trustworthy consumer report website on the Internet. It is my personal mission to put an end to the fraud associated with Internet shopping. I want my readers to leave my site feeling welcomed, safe, well informed about products, and confident with their online shopping purchases/experiences. I hope that while you're navigating my site keep these points in mind.
If you ever need a hand or have ay questions, feel free to leave me a coment below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
Ken B.

I have already put content on my website, like a post about weight loss, my privacy page and my about me page. When I go to customize, my options seem very short. I am trying to make my website look exciting, because right now it looks really bare. Is there another platform I can switch it to and customize it? I want to have a picture in the background and be able to change the colors of everything. It just looks not so professional and I want to make it look more exciting.

littlemama Premium
You can edit the look of your site in your theme settings. You should be able to do the editing you want there. You should go to Appearance > Themes, there you should be able to customize your current theme.

The look and design of your website depends on your theme so if you find that your current theme doesn't let you make it the way you look, then you'll have to research other themes to see which one has the options you're looking for... it may have to be a paid theme but there are tons of free ones out there too. You can search for themes also in Appearance > Themes.

I have an exciting opportunity; (long story). I need to do a different web page before I finish the first one. I registered the domain; title. etc Set up SEO cleared the dummy content.
Now I need to put in the privacy policy. No matter how many times I try; when I login to my new site. I go straight to
dashboard. If I go to site content on Rubix It goes to my unfinished site. How can I remedy this?

Hi people. :)

This is a bit off-topic, but I'm momentarily stuck on it and I'd like to hear another opinion. ^^;

I have an old alias from years ago when I was more-or-less active on the internet, so some people knew me by it, and a relatively newer one that's more "unique," and maybe easier to brand. Would it be better to stick with the first one or the second? (or just make up a new one?)

PS: neither is the one I'm using now, btw. XD
Reply
JHaugland Premium
It depends f the ones you want to reach now is the same that knew you by the old alias and if it's important that those people still can find you by the alias.
If not, would go for the brandable one (or as you say make up a new one)
Reply
Well, they weren't many, so I don't think it would be a problem to tell them I changed my username ;).

Though, I just thought of something else: that "unique" name is unique because it came from an item in an old (as in Windows 95) game. I'm not sure if that would be a problem. :\

(And apparently my old posts on deviantArt show up on google by looking it up on image-search. Funny O.o)

Hello! So far, I am really enjoying and learning from the Level 1 - Getting Started Course. I have a wordpress website with a domain name. I would like to keep using it to start off with a "niche" as I go through this course. Do I need to use the SiteRubix and upgrade to the premium member now to do this? Thank you!
Reply
Kyle Premium
You don't have to use the website platform here if you don't want. You can use an existing site that you already have set-up with the training here or you can start fresh.

Sometimes with an existing site there may be some things that you have done in the past that could be hurting your rankings (backlinks, spun content, duplicate content, low quality content), so starting fresh and doing things properly from the start can be advantageous. But this is totally up to you.

Either way, I am here to help you along the way Jessamine!

Excellent training and Jaaxy also excellent tool.
I have a question regarding Jaaxy keyword search and domain availability?
After connecting Jaaxy to my site and doing some trial searches I did a search for keywords for one of my offline business's and it showed that .NET and.ORG domains where available, I clicked "find more" and it again only showed those 2 domain extensions available.
However when I did a search on Go Daddy it showed that .CO.UK was available. As I am in United Kingdom this was important information (I actually purchased the domain).
Is Jaaxy mainly US domains and does the keyword research only cover US searches?
Thanks in advance for any info on this.
