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.

working through the keyword searches for niches and sorting out the exact url and name of the website. I have what looks like a good keyword but it is mostly a sentence without the prepositions. Jaaxy shows it has these values: avg - 242, traffic - 42, QSR - 0, SEQ - 97....I did a google search of these terms and the results showed the first 7 on the list had no meta description or meta keywords...the 8th showed up with a couple of each...but mostly on the first page there wasn't a website that had that information. How does that figure in with ranking. The 7th site had the words but they were arranged throughout the content and not arranged in a sentence.
I must be over complicating this process...and it is seeming to me that this set of words are too lofty for any small niche that I might be going for...the drill down, the individual person would get lost on the first page. Is that a proper assumption...
I should just make it point to something like miagraines or just splitting headaches...or nobody likes me fat...
This is challenging to not overthink everything.

(1) You are going to be writing content within your niche

English is not my first language, even tho I have a good grip of it... should I choose a niche/tribe who speak my first language (French)?

Or if I have a good level of English enough maybe I shouldn't close myself to a bigger audience right?

Also, I feel stressed about NOT doing BOTH trainings, the normal one and the Bootcamp. Will I miss anything by not following them both? The video says no but I can't help, it's in my personality trait to learn as much as possible in life.

Salut Damien, I recommend the Level 1 training, etc before going over to Bootcamp. Skills in the first are transferable to the second so you won't be missing out.
Regarding language, what you have written here is perfect so it's safe to go with English if you have a niche idea. If you need help, I would be willing to read drafts and comment, no problem and, you can also use the comments thread to get feedback from other people too. I hope this helps. Bon Chance! Steve C

Bonjour, Damien,

That's actually a good question. English is not my first language either, but I feel comfortable using it. I know it's not perfect, but I try to proofread everything before posting it.

I think blogs in English have a larger audience than blogs in any other language, but that's just my opinion. Before opening my website, I had been thinking if I should do it in Spanish (my first language), but I decided to do English. I might try Spanish later on.

And don't stress over not doing both your niche and the bootcamp at the same time. It's too much to handle. Believe me. Think what is more convenient for you and pick one.

Bon courage!

Enrique

Damien hi, you can absolutely apply the training in WA and create a site with your native language being the main one.

I think there's a bigger audience that speak/read English than French. I am living in Montreal, Canada and french was my first language.

Forget about the bootcamp for now. On my side I dont even pay attention to it since I think writing should be about a passion first. Of course as soon as you have the knowledge and writting skills you should try the second part of this training.

Salutations,
Alvaro

On a tutorial that Jay (magicstudios) has made on January, he create a new domain name based on keywords with great value and also a lot of AVG search. When I started my website/domain more than a year ago I didn't pay attention to that. Should I? Or does keywords on my title posts and content with enough to bring people to my site? I'm a bit confused now.

My analytics are not as I want them to be. less than 200 sessions/months and 125 users/months. My domain name is bad for QSR and low in avg search. :(

Any insights ? Thanks guys...

Hi - people find your website by searching for the keywords in your content, rather than by its domain name.

I took a look at your site (as mentioned on your profile page). Your first post was January 2018, so it is coming up to 2 years old, but you have less than 40 posts on it. There are gaps of up to a month between some posts, so you won't be attracting Google's attention because you are not posting on a regular basis with any consistency.

You don't need to worry about having keywords in your domain name. An example of that is "GoDaddy" -> they sell domain names but their own domain name has absolutely nothing to do with domains.. It's just a combination of 2 totally random words.

OK thanks Dale. I though it could be relevant if someone looking for ''fitness trackers'' by example (it is my niche). I need to see why i dont have enough people to go to my website. less than 200 sessions is small I think to convert $$.

If not good for you as you feel, take time find new keyword for your domain. At least and should be related niche. Find low competition in QSR. AFTER you select new keyword, you should be happy for that. Don't forget. It should be related your niche. It is Because your content should reflect your niche.

Then transfer your old domain to your new domain. But careful, don't delete your old domain at least 1 month. Let Google know, so that will not affect your rank from old domain.

Hi - unfortunately, affiliate marketing is a long term commitment. The sooner you build your website, the better, as age plays a part as to getting your site ranked in Google. You need to follow the training step by step, and you will have built your site by the end of lesson 4. Your next step is to add lots of original content to it.

If you know anybody who may be interested in this program, you could email them your personal affiliate link and earn a commission if they go premium. You can find your link in the dollar symbol at the top of the page. Go to links and tracking.

Well, I don`t know overall to suggest; except this; you could try advertising Wealthy Affiliate on other Websites; and seeing if you can make money here; and I am not sure about making money here? But, at least if you made credits that could go towards your monthly bills for Wealthy Affiliate; it would not cost so much. You should really ask Kyle and Carson about making money quickly on here. They might have some suggestions. Just put their names into the search box above separately.

If you need to make money to fund your membership, you can do that by writing articles for other people. Try UpWork. More details: To make money from your affiliate website, it's going to take at least a few weeks or months to gain tractions. There's no "quick" way, or shortcut. If there was, everyone would be doing it.

There are TONS of writing jobs out there, and they can all be done from your computer, from anywhere in the world!

There are other models. Everything has risk of course. No guarantees. And different levels of expense required.

Anyway... you do NOT need to build an authority site to make affiliate sales. Of course not. It is only one model. The benefits are ultimately you have traffic coming in on auto pilot for free from search engines.

KEEP IN MIND... NOTHING IS EASY. AND IF YOU HAVEN'T GONE THROUGH THE TRAINING HERE YET THEN YOU WON'T BE IN A POSITION TO EVEN DO THIS STUFF.

WORST THING TO DO IS SWITCH FROM THING TO THING TO THING... ALWAYS LEADS TO "FAILURE".

With that all being said... simplest way to try to make money from affiliate marketing would be to market directly from free and paid ads to affiliate products. I have done that in the past. It works okay but nothing great.

Much better is to set up a landing page that pre-sells the visitors then leads them to the affiliate offer. And you market that landing page. You can create 25 free websites here which would be perfect for that. So you could setup 10 to 20 "campaigns" like this and let them run...just single page... landing pages.

Then just leave that stuff alone basically just forget about them and get back to work on building your authority website.

If you make an occasional sale from your landing page campaigns then great. The only reason I am sharing this is that it does at least give the opportunity to make some tiny amount of money while you are busy building your niche authority website.

I am creating an online weight reduction program with an affiliate component. It will be different than anything available now. The name of the program will be "Click and Grow Thin." I've secured the .com domain name. Affiliates would be paid 50% of the enrollment fee plus 20% of any back end up-sales.

What would an affiliate want to see in the program before they felt comfortable promoting it to their tribe? This not a commitment on your part - just a hypothetical.

What would be a reasonable price to charge? My thought is ($197) to make it super affordable for most people. Others suggested the price be $497.
Any suggestions, ideas or criticism is welcomed.
