We are now getting into the FUN stuff! Search Engine Optimization, also known as SEO!

You have your website in place and now you want to make it SEO ready so that search engines can find it. Our goal is to get ranked in the BIG 3 engines, Google, Bing & Yahoo.

Do note that our focus is going to be primarily on Google though as they own over 70% of all search traffic, and over 95% of mobile searches.

But why do you want rankings in the search engines? Simple...

Website Rankings = Targeted Traffic = Revenue!

The rankings are the first step in creating an online revenue stream.

Today we are going to walk you through the set-up of a Wordpress plugin that is going to do a lot of the "dirty work" for you and will take care of the optimization of all your website pages/posts, meta tags, and other aspects that search engines look for when ranking your site.

I have created a "Setting Your Website Up for Search Engines" video walk-through of this training and please follow along as it will add a lot of clarity to how SEO works, but also how to install the All in One SEO plugin.


Task 1: Set-up All in One SEO on your site

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a very important aspect of any website's success.

In this task we are going to be setting up a plugin that makes our website code (the stuff behind the scenes of our website) friendly for search engines like Google so they can index and rank our sites properly. This is going to be very powerful for your website content getting ranked in search engines going forward, so DO NOT skip this task.

Since you activated the All in One SEO within the last lesson, you should see the "All in One SEO" item with your main menu now in your Wordpress back office. If you mouse over that menu icon, a sub menu will pop out (see below).

Simply click the "General Settings" link. This is where you will be going to set-up your SEO settings for your website.

The main section you are going to be updating here is the Home Page Settings section. There are two sections that you will be updating there:

  • Home Title - This is the title of your website that will show up when you get ranked in Google and other search engines. This won't actually show up on your site.

    You want this to reflect the actual title of your website that you created with your site, but also add something to make it a bit more captivating.

    Ideal Length: 40-60 characters, keep under 60
  • Home Description - This is a description of what your website is about and how it will benefit people. Don't overthink this part, you just want to be descriptive as to what your site is.

    Ideal Length: Under 160 characters

Although there are a TON of other settings, you are not going to need to update any of these at the moment, not for SEO purposes.

When you are done updating your Home Page Settings, scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click the "Update Options" button (as shown below).

Upon doing this, you are done. Your website is set-up and SEO READY! :)

A few important points things to take note of here about All in One SEO:

  • You DO NOT need to "Upgrade to Pro". The free version is more than adequate for your needs.
  • You won't see these changes to your actual site. The work is done behind the scenes within your websites HTML code. It is making your code friendly for search engines.

Awesome, your website is all set-up for SEO now! As you build out your new pages/posts, they will automatically be optimized for Google and other search engines. If you have any questions about the set-up process, leave them in the comments below and we will give you a hand.

In the next lesson we are going to be discussing KEYWORDS, the root of all of your rankings, traffic and success online.

For my website I wanted to do recipes that I create. I want to promote health and fitness and different easy food recipes which people can follow. I was wondering if this would be easy to sell... e.g. find a recipe which includes a food blender.. promote a certain food blender from amazon. And then have some pictures in gym clothing, promote gym clothing from Nike etc... would this work or would you have to pick a certain product e.g. clothes and have the whole website just for that?

Thanks :)

Y'know, my advice is to start with the idea that you have and go with it a while. Over time, you'll almost certainly start to narrow your niche down further.

I would recommend, however, that you look first at other affiliates besides Amazon. I know they're the "big dog", but after putting many hours of work into promoting them, I've found more success at individual vendors through Share-a-Sale or Rakuten. Just my 2¢

Perfect! Thanks for that :)
I love your idea @Lauren that's thinking ahead 👍
This sounds amazing and funny because i was thinking of doing something similar as I love cooking, inventing and trying new things in the kitchen. I'm nowhere where you're at as I just joined here like an hour ago. You definitely will drive traffic to your site as everyone is looking for anything healthy or fitness right now especially more now than ever that we are all on lock down and having to stay in and cook our own meals and eat and exercise at home. Best wishes to you.
My standard for Environmentally Sustainable Consumer Products, Services, Investments exist on the web links on various links. I hope to bring web links together that envision evolving consumer products that are designed to be recycled (lifecycle thinking), upgradable, repairable for the life of the consumer. Imagine never using a trash can and taking your plastic waste to your compost or community compost unit.
Hi there, so regarding the money making opportunity as an affiliate- in reference to the snack helmet, the gentleman created a website for a popular product that is already on sale and just created links on his page as to where to purchase i.e amazon ebay etc. Then receives commission for each sale?
I just want to know that i am understanding correctly?

Yes, that is what Affiliate Marketing is all about , you send visitors to your website to the company you are an affiliate for and in return they pay you a commission.
Brilliant!Super simple!:)Thanks so much for the response!

Hello all,
As a premium member and pretty slow beginning, how doea one invite another person to view the opportunity I am undergoing. I'm pretty much stuck on getting a niche and keep hitting a brick wall every time I get back into the program.
I understand what the process is but cannot for the life of me, pick a bloody niche.

Hi George,

I recommend Affiliate Bootcamp. As I feel you wanted to help others to see this WA platform. This will help you as well as how to get people to see this site.
You could see this on the left side of your screen, click Training, you will see there the Affiliate Bootcamp.

Hello Florentino,
many thanks for your input and much appreciated. I initially started on the Certification program until the niche section, then switched to Bootcamp but was somewhat confused at the same area. Is it my understanding that I should place WA in the niche segment, if so Ill continue the training with more confidence.
Cheers Georg

Question on Amazon Affiliates if I may - I have set one up on travel accessories, creams, protection, sunglass' , you get my drift - I 'thought' of starting with a FB page, which I've started on -however, as its broad brush , I thought of adding PAGES rather than individual items - does this WORK and how do I get the required codes and how to input to FB - any thoughts, gratefully received.
Thanks for your time in reading this, appreciate your input

Once you are an Amazon Associate or once you have applied to another affiliate programs, you'll get an affiliate link that you can copy paste to promote products related to your niche. Make sure you read their Terms and Conditions first.

Hope it helps,
