Search engines like Google, Bing & Yahoo are after ONE thing. The most relevant content.

If you can build out your website in a way that is ready for SEO (as discussed in the last lesson) and create quality, relevant content, you are going to have a bright journey ahead of you within the online world.

The thing that most people stress about is being a "writer", you DO NOT have to be a writer to be successful online.

You simply need to communicate with your audience, the same way that you would with a friend or a family member. And if you put the emphasis on helping people, you are going to be able to build trust, which is going to lead to long term and sustainable success online.

As both a Starter/Premium member, you have access to the SiteContent platform here at Wealthy Affiliate. This platform offers you some incredible features as a writer that will lead to more efficiency, accuracy, and speed with your content creation.

It is going to be your go to writing tool moving forward and it is exclusive to Wealthy Affiliate members only!

I have created a little walk-through video called "Creating Your Initial Website Content (Framework), showing you around the platform and how to best benefit from it. Watch the video below.

 

Task 1: Creating Your "About Me" POST

To establish a brand online in any niche, you need to build trust with your audience. The best way to initially do this is through an "about me" style page. Every successful website will have some information about their brand, who they are and why they want to help people.

Your first task today is going to be to create your About Me page and you are going to be doing this directly within the SiteContent platform.

Within your Templates tab, you are going to see that you already have the framework for your About Me page already outlined.


Simply click on the About Me template and it will take you into the SiteContent editor. This is where you will be creating your content for your About Me page.

The first thing you are going to want to do is choose a title that is appropriate for your about me page. There are several options that I suggest you choose from in terms of your naming convention.

  • About Me
  • About NAME (ex. About Kyle)
  • About SITE (ex. About Real Deal Affiliate, About RDA)
  • About Us

The most natural and the option that I have always used because I feel it resonates and creates the most trust is "About Me" or "About Kyle", because it is the most direct. It feels like I am here for you and I am here to help (which is the case with every site I create).

Then you will want to populate the content. Do know that this is just a guideline, as you edit this post you can add new headings and of course you are in full control of the content and your story.

This is not a rigid exercise here, you are YOUR OWN brand and you can build out your content in any way you like, but this will give you a good guideline here.

After your are done doing this you will be click the Publish button in the right corner, just above your editor. This is going to allow you to publish directly to your website (see below).

Upon clicking Publish, you will get a pop-up that will allow you to choose how you want to publish the content. This is a 4 step process.

Step 1: You will want to choose your website that you want to Publish to, in this case it will be my "basketballskillsanddrills.siterubix.com" website.

Step 2: Choose "Post", not a "Page". The reason is all POSTS allow for comments on them and this is a page on my website where I am going to want to allow people to leave comments and feedback. Pretty much every article you publish moving forward will be done so as a "Post".

Step 3: Choose the user. If this is a new site, you will likely only have an Admin user. That is fine, choose that as your user.

Step 4: Choose the URL plug. Leave it "as is". You shouldn't need to change your URL plug, this is something that you can leave.

The Click Publish. Upon doing so, SiteContent is going to run a duplicate content check, and then publish the content to your website. Since you wrote your About Me page it will be 100% unique.

Task 2: Adding Your "Privacy Policy" PAGE

All major affiliate programs and all advertising platforms require that you have a "Privacy Policy" on your website. This is a formality more than anything and it is very much a standardized document.

You are going to want to load up the Privacy Policy Template from your templates.


Upon doing so, you will get a standardized Privacy Policy page. You are just going to need to make a few edits within the content to update this Privacy Policy and make it relevant to your website.

Change YOURDOMAIN.com => Your Website URL

In the case of my website, I changed it to basketballskillsanddrills.siterubix.com. There about 10-11 instances of this that you will need to update within the Privacy Policy.

Then you will want to change:

Change YOUREMAIL@YOUREMAIL.com => Your Email Address

This could be any email you want, you could even create a free gmail account for the purpose of this. Or if you don't feel comfortable leaving your email at the moment, this can be something that you provide to people at a later date.

Upon updating the YOURDOMAIN.com and YOUREMAIL@YOUREMAIL.com to your website details, you will want to Publish the Privacy Policy to your website.

Publish as a Page.

The reason you want to create this as a Page, not a Post is because Pages don't allow for comments. You don't want people commenting on your Privacy Policy, whereas you are going to want to allow for comments and engagement on the rest of your website (as it is good for rankings).

NOTE: If you do publish as a page and there are comments there, not to worry. That is just how your "theme" you chose was designed and it will not present any issues moving forward.

You are all set with your first few pages of content on your website. If you have any questions about the creation of your "about me" or "privacy policy" pages, leave them below.

Kudos to you for your hard work thus far, in the next lesson we are going to be covering navigation on your website and how to create custom menus. ;)

Is it possible to bring my already business website, that has already been ranking high in google, over to WA to be ran until I learn enough to take it over. Do you think I could use my business website to my advantage with starting my new online stuff?

Heyy, so I had a couple of questions regarding selecting a niche. Please help me, thanks in advance : )
Is it possible to have a multi-niche website, where I can write content about more than 1 thing on the same site?
Also, does a niche have to focus on one particular thing or can it be a little more generalized but in the same category itself

Hi - only one niche on a website. Otherwise, you will confuse your audience and Google will not see you as an authority on your subject.

Take a look at my training on how to narrow down the pets niche to give you a better idea.

Hi,

No, a niche a website. Otherwise, you'd confuse Google and your visitors.

You niche has to be narrow in the beginning using low competition keywords until such time it starts gaining traffic, traction and authority, and then you may think to scale. Kindly let us know if you require further assistance.

Hi, yes you can however the learning curve would you steeper as communications would cease up, however it is possible. It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work

However you could remain a starter indefinitely and your siterubix subdomain remains valid for six months.

Actually I have too niches am basing on and this too niche is my favorite one is hanging out book camping niche and the other one is health and fitness product, so I really don't know the right one to go for at this moment am kind of confused so I really need a good feed back with this,

Hi,

Which of the two, you are passionate about more and can write lots of content. Healthy and Fitness product is something you would promote vs Health and fitness, however too broad and need narrowing down.

What type of fitness, to what group, what will you be writing about, what issues will you be discussing? Tips, training, frequency etc

Again the camping part is same why type where and to whom. who's going to benefit most from what you have to offer. Who's your target audience?

However it has got to be a niche a website, but would advice going with the one site for starters.

Thanks I really appreciate your concept on my answer but like your word am going to focus on the one I can right about and get a tagetable audience for the sales

Hope you figured out your AIOSEO plugin issue.

As for niche ideas. I am attaching a blog that may give you some ideas. If you are referring to your xxx.siterubix.com site YES you can delete it and start over.

Thank you for responding. Sounds like solid advice and now that I’ve stepped away for a few minutes I seem to have recovered some clarity. I don’t believe I have done anything that can’t be fixed. So I’m h he ping to review the last three videos and see if I missed something.
Thank again I do so appreciate your input. If you don’t mind I would like to follow you.
Respectfully,
Larry.

Hi , thank you for the response and the links I’m pretty sure that niche thing worked itself out!! We will see. I will for sure check those links out.

I’m still knocking around seo trying to figure out why there’s something sandwiched in my title that I thought I had deleted. Also trying to figure out where the two h2 tags are.... grrrr. Anyhow thank you so much!
Peace and prosperity

When you reference two H2 tags, do you ever use the Text tag in WordPress? It can look overwhelming at first but learning how to use that tab can save some time. You can put your own h2 tags in. Learning how is by looking at other H2 tags in the content body.

Did you delete all the prepopulated title page tag suggestions by AIOSEO? Is this causing the problem with your title?

If it's our own domain you will loose it, so perhaps you just need to adapt it a bit. If it's a siterubix then delete bit and start again
