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.

I have a question. Let's say I have already decided my niche & one of my topics/webpage somehow don't have a product related to it on all the famous websites like Amazon, eBay, Flipkart etc ? What should I do in that case?

What if I have many topics to write on & I use an affiliate link related to the other topic(let's say mobile technology) on my website to my current topic(the one which doesn't have any products on the famous websites). Will that be OK?

I mean, in the end, most of us are just going to buy stuff from the well known & trusted websites.

And how many affiliate links on a single webpage is considered to be OK?
2?3?

I want to know that can I display different products from different sites on one 1 website.
for ex - from amazon one cc cream and from Walmart one lipstick can we do that. or by doing this we can go banned.

plz, suggest to me whether I go for different products from different sites or should stick to one site forex- like the only selling amazon products.

try not to think of your niche as a product - but what the product does - the end result.
so the lipstick - want to present yourself at your best - so more of a makeup - so what about makeupstyles in your 40's
this way you get to do how to's and promote products as solutions.
this way is a lot more subtle that trying to sell a product to anyone.
but it can cover many products on one website
good luck

Hi everyone! I've a question. Let's assume I have a website & someone buys a product through my affiliate link.
Now let's put aside the commission part.
What I want to know is what kind of information I'll get to know about the customer who is buying through my link?

*First of all, I would like to make this clear, I'm not talking about any personal information.*
The thing I'm talking about is for eg:- Which part of the world they belong to OR from where they are purchasing the product through my link.

The one thing that I know is "Business is all about catering your customers NEEDS & WANTS"

I'll try to explain by giving an example.
Let's assume I have like 10 affiliate links, out of which 7 links are accessed by people from a particular region, let's say, London & they end up buying a product.

So if I know from which region of the world, most of my affiliated products are bought, it would help me in future if I try to choose more specific products for my new affiliate links.

I hope my question makes some sense.

Thanks in advance for your reply & taking time out to read my question.

What information you get by the affiliate network differs but in most cases you won't get information other than how many clicks were there on your link and how many purchased from those clicks.

You can use tools like clickmagick to know where are the clicks coming from, fake clicks, and many other things.

Thanks for replying!
I just read few things on ClickMagick & honestly, I liked some of its features (& didn't understood the rest 😅). I didn't see its pricing, but I want to know is it really worth it to use such a tool?
Is there any better or maybe cheap alternative to it? Does Wealthy Affiliate provide such a tool?

Plus what do you mean by fake clicks? Do you mean bots? If yes, then how can we avoid the whole bot stuff? I have seen my websites & YouTube channels comment section which were spammed with full of bots messages.

I have just joined this community today & I'm still a starter member.
Infact you can think of me as a amateur in this whole online business stuff.

I'm going through the training & the comments section as well to know more about the community & all the different terms/tools associated with online business.

I know I'm getting too far ahead but still want to learn & know more about this stuff.

Is there anyone here who has tried this ClickMagick tool(or maybe another alternative) & could share their experience?

Thank you!

hey hi Vishal & welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Super question & all questions are good ones here....

Yes ... it's all possible .... it's just that it will take much more effort on your part for the rate of return and also likely take a lot, lot longer ...

Suggest you get rolling on the step by step training with Kyle over the next few days or so and then decide ... where there's a will, there's always a Way to Success! ....

here's the blue link to the training for you ... All the very best to you .. cheerio ... :)

Hi - it's possible, but it will be much more difficult. You will only have limited access to the training, and after your first 7 days, you won't be able to communicate with other members or ask questions if you get stuck.

Do be aware, that even with a premium membership you would be unlikely to see any income for at least 3 months, and more realistically it would be 6 months. This is not a get rich quick scheme, you are building a genuine online business for your future.

Should I reconsider my niche if Google ads keywords shows competition is very high? Should I pick a niche based off of low competition keywords rather than my passions? Using Jaxxy would it be better to go with a high traffic, high competition keyword with an OK KQI, and a SEO rank of 73, or rather pick a lower traffic, lower competition keyword that has a great KQI and SEO rank in the 90's?

I wouldn't base your niche off a keyword or off Google Ads. There will be thousands of keywords you can target for your niche to obtain free organic traffic from search results pages
