At this stage of the course you should have your website created! Congratulations, this is a big accomplishment!

Looking back to 2002 when I started my career in Online Business it took me 30 days just to figure out how to build a website. There definitely weren't any platforms like SiteRubix out there. What takes 30 seconds now, took 30 days back then.

How things have changed!

In this lesson we are going to be walking you through the process of the initial website set-up. This includes the removal of "default" content that is installed with every website as well as a look around of the back office of your website.

Additionally, I am also going to be walking you through the activation of your "Plugins" and be walking you through the benefits of the plugins (feature extensions) that have been installed automatically with your website.

Below is a video walk-through showing you the process of setting up your website. Click play to watch the video below.

DISCUSS VIDEO: Setting Up Your Website - The Initial Steps

Task 1: Login Into Your Website Back Office

In order to do this, you need to log into your website. This is very easy to do and can be done using the "Log In!" button (as shown below).

This will automatically show you all your users you have associated with your website and from there you can log into your website.

No more need for manual logins and the passwords within your account are encrypted and secured using SiteRubix technology!

You can also find your website login details, username, and password within the Details link on your SiteManager dashboard.

Task 2: Activate and Update Your Plugins

After you login, you will see your Wordpress administration dashboard for your website (see below).

This may look completely foreign to you if you have never logged into a WordPress website before, but don't worry, you will get the hang of this and there is a ton of help here within the community to work you through any questions/issues you may run into.

Wordpress is the most powerful and widely used website platform in the world. It is used by over 30% of ALL websites (millions) and it also has a wide range of "add ons" known as plugins that you can use extend the functionality of your website.

When you install website here at WA we pre-install two of the most useful plugins with your website automatically and your first step is going to be activating these plugins.

To do this you will want to click on the Plugins tab within the menu.

You are going to want to go through and activate the "All in One SEO" and "EWW Image Optimizer" plugins. You can do that by clicking the "Activate" button (as shown below).

Upon clicking Activate, these plugins are now "activated" and ready to go. The All in One SEO plugin will take a little bit of set-up, but this will be discussed in detail in the next lesson.

Task 3: Delete Default Posts, Pages and Comments

Every new Wordpress website that you install will come with "default" or dummy content that is added with every website install. You want to get rid of this content before you can start creating content that is relevant to your niche.

The first thing you want to do is delete the default post that is added with each website.

Click on the Posts button, within the side menu.

This will take you to the posts page where you will go to see a list of all the posts on your website. A post is simply a content page on your site (we will be explaining them in more detail later).



Simply "mouse over" the post area and it will reveal the post management buttons. You will want to then click the "Trash" button. This will delete the default "Hello World!" post.

Do the same with the "Pages" link as well.

**Do note that there may not be both default Pages and Posts. If that is the case, just move on.

That is it for this lesson, nice work! You now have a live website that is set-up and ready to go. This is your own Internet "real estate". You will use this website to connect with your niche and ultimately earn revenue through. This website is your foundation for building a successful online business!

The next lesson we are going to be showing you how to get your website ready to rank in Google and other search engines!

How do you add a homepage description and homepage keywords if your homepage is not a static page and is only your latest posts? I already made my website before I joined so I used Yoast SEO instead so how would I be able to do it from that plugin?

Also, if I absolutely HAVE to have a static page for the home keywords and description, is there any way to put my latest posts on my static page?

Thank you!

Hey cherish,
Maybe you could ask the Site support for the technical stuff.

As much as I want to help your situation, I think your problem is based on the theme of your website.

If you want to use All In One SEO instead of Yoast, you can easily install it as a plugin on your WordPress so that you may easily follow the instructional videos.

Have a nice day,

I am enjoying reading what the others are thinking of for their niche. I have been thinking about what my niche will be for a while. At first I too was leaning towards weight loss, or diet aids. I am almost 60 years old and have been blessed with good genes and up until 3 years ago I had no wrinkles. I am thinking about facial regimes for women of all ages. Is it feasible to begin with products for each age group (teens, 20’s,30’s, etc) or would that be overwhelming? I have other ideas too, so many choices, please tell me how do I choose?
Reply
webcash2us Premium
I think that could be a good niche and the ages of the women could be part of the categories. Narrowing down a niche is important in that you can target specific products and the audience that would be interested in those products. I wrote a blog about Niche Product Ideas that touches on the narrowing down of a niche.

Thank you for your input. I read your blog and I am going to try not to overthink this niche. I too have been in many affiliate programs only to be disappointed. I am thrilled I found Wealthy Affiliates.

Hi WA
I have a few questions :
- When you’re looking for keywords and you have a SEO between 90 and 99, what does that mean?

- How do we find an affiliate program?

- How to add a photo to my article?

Thank you for your answer.

Have a good week end.

EdwinBernard Premium
Any SEO above 90 is considered great.

Wealthy Affiliate has a section to help you find one or more Affiliate Programs. Click on the Affiliate Programs link on the left.

At the top of your article editor you will see an icon with a mountain in it. Click that and you will have the option uploading your own pictures, or selecting them from a built in library of thousands of pictures. Enter any topic you wish to be related and you will get a lot to chose from.

Hope this helps!

Cheers.

Hello, the excitement is real! One question I do have is email. when creating a website with premium it says I will have email included, does that mean I will have an individual email @ my website domain for every website I have? I'm thinking if I should be setting up a more professional email. All the emails I have set up currently are gmail and personal emails that dont exactly appear professional.

Thanks for any feedback!

Hi everyone - quick question on Jaaxy. When I do a keyword search, the results display with a link that reads "Get QSR" in that column, so I have to click each and every link to display the corresponding keyword's QSR. In the video when Kyle does his keyword search, the QSR is already displayed when the results populate. How do I get my results to do that?

Thanks in advance!!

Hi - we are given the Jaaxy Lite version to use, which requires clicking manually. Kyle uses an upgraded version, which you would need to pay extra for.

Hi Pam, that's right, to see the corresponding QSR you need to click on each of the "Get QSR". Kyle is using the "Enterprise" version of Jaaxy, the most expensive and the only one that auto populates everything.

Well, my profile is complete, I've gone through all the training, and my website is up. I can't find it on Google, but I suppose it's not going to immediately be on the front page! Either way, I'm happy with my niche- which is video games, something I love and know quite a bit about- and tomorrow I'm going to get affiliated with companies so I can start making some money while doing what I love: talking about video games! And potentially playing them for others on streams, after garnering some interest for my website, of course!

Hi - the next stage is to wait for Google to find your website. This is called indexing and can take anything from two days to two weeks. You will receive an email when this happens.

There is no point applying to affiliate programs yet because your website is not visible on the internet and therefore, they won't be able to inspect it to see if it is suitable.

Plus, most programs will expect to see a good amount of content on your site before they approve you. At this stage, you should be concentrating on writing articles.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Hey Gabriel,

It usually takes 7-14 days to get your site initially indexed in Google (sometimes quicker). That is completely normal.

As you build out your website content and as you get engagement on your website, it will only continue to get indexed quicker. Google will continue to grant you more and more authority as they deem your website to be of value and before long you will see your new content getting indexed almost instantly.

Just part of the process and you are absolutely heading in the right direction. :)
Reply
I figured as much. No biggie at all: it will give me plenty of time to update the site and make it look nice, as well as fill it out with information so that people take a look at all that I've got on there.

Thanks for the info! It is most certainly appreciated~

I am thinking about changing directions and maybe joining the affiliate bootcamp and to promote wealthy affiliate. I was wondering, if anyone has experience with this: how different is that from doing my own website and will I get the same amount of success in it or is it more limited in making commission?
Reply
Labman Premium
If you are just getting started, it will take much longer to rank a site in the MMO (Make money online) niche than in other niches. You should probably get a successful site in another niche before you tackle promoting WA. IMHO, others may disagree.
Reply
siamjerry Premium
It is a good idea, but only when you have had the necessary experience with your own website. Only after half a year experience I started bootcamp. The principles of the marketing are the same, however, at bootcamp you will be promoting one product only viz. WA. There is now way to forecast which website will give you the best profits, as this entirely depends on your personal choices and efforts.

AJTrimble1 Premium
Two questions:

1) Is affiliate marketing your true passion, or are you just looking at it because you think you can make money?

2) What experience and/or knowledge do you have about affiliate marketing in general?

If you "ooze" sales and marketing with every fiber of your being and you have the knowledge to share, then I say go for it. But if you are just doing it for the money, it's going to be a very tough road.

The make-money-online niche is extremely competitive, perhaps THE most competitive out there. And it will actually most likely take you longer than a hobby or interest site.

Don't worry about making commissions right now. You should be focused on finding your passion and creating content around it. The commission part comes later.

Look at it this way... you can have all the ads and affiliate links in the world, but if there is no one there to see them you still won't make a dime. Your only focus should be on building an audience.

Making money is (eventually) the easy part. What's hard is getting a steady stream of traffic. And for that, you need great content.

I want to have a website focused on essential oils as my niche. I'm not sure how narrow my website needs to be. I would like to be able to blog about different products and oils and add links to affiliate links? Do I need to narrow this down and have multiple websites?
Reply
siamjerry Premium
Yes, you might want to narrow it down to e.g. essential oils for acne or something similar. You will have competition as I am sure I recently commented on a post on essential oils. I do not see the need for multiple websites.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
I think that might be okay.

I took the liberty of running a query using the Jaaxy research tool -- you'll learn how to do this as you continue with the training -- and even the base niche keywords (essential oils, aromatherapy and essential oils, etc.) all run pretty good numbers already. And I'm sure it will get even better as you narrow down to specific oils and other more detailed keywords.

Just keep working through the training and you'll be fine :-)
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I think essential oils is good enough for a niche, but you could potentially narrow it down to a type of audience, like essential oils for cooking, essential oils for natural home remedies, or diffuser reviews.

Hello! I have a question on the websites that I can own once I purchase the premium. Let's say, you maximized the 50 in total and you would want to remove the website that generates the least income. Is it possible to have that website deleted and be replaced with something new you want? I learned through this lesson that you can't change the domain once set up and only the website name can be changed afterwards. Thanks in advance!

Yes, you can delete websites that you don't want or that you are not using. You are in full control of that Hector and you can delete and manage your domains directly within the SiteManager.

I have narrowed my options to 3-4 niches, and although I have a great interest in all of them, I'm not sure which amongst them would be easiest to work with.

1. Men's fashion (shirts, shorts, pants, etc.)
2. Workout supplements
3. Vegan/vegetarian meat substitutes (Beyond meat, Impossible foods, etc.)
4. Music and audio (headphones, speakers, etc,)

Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

So, I've watched the create your website video which is straightforward but I'm still undecided on a niche. I've used the Jaxxy tool to find keywords and there isn't much traffic for my niche ideas. I also searched for affiliate programs and didn't see any. What should I do at this point?

1. Start with a broad niche just to get the website going?
2. Keep researching niches that have affiliate programs?
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
There are hundreds of thousands of affiliate programs out there and millions of products. I'm sure you will find something that works. But that comes later. You can have all the links in the world but you still won't make a dime if there is no one there to see them. For now, just get the site going and start writing quality content that attracts readers. Once you have the traffic, the making money part is easy :-)

Hello, DaniMack,

How are you doing? My name is Joseph and I can relate to everything that you have mentioned! When I started on this new journey, I had zero experience using a computer and having to build a website at Word Press, omg, It took me nearly three months to finish my first website!

I was having major Panic Attacks at least, three times a day!
That was a little over a year and a half ago. I had to watch and rewatch, then rewatch all the videos again until one day, as I was watching a video, this crazy idea comes to mind and it seemed like a pretty good idea, so, I followed through with it.

The idea was to write down everything that Kyle was saying in the lessons video's word for word!
This worked out much better for me in the long run. I called it,
Wealthy Affiliate 101...

I'm going to follow you and please, If you are not bored to death yet, follow me back! But I would really like to carry on this conversation with you and hope to hear back from you

Have a very wonderful day and enjoy the time you spend here, and reach for the stars that shine so brightly in the skies above our heads, because there are NO LIMITS HERE at WA! I almost forgot to Welcome you to WA and tell you that, you sure have made a really great decision on choosing the premium membership. You are now a member of the one and only Affiliate program that has All the benefits and added programs since I was here the first time.

WA also has Absolutely One of The Most Sophisticated Platforms that exist today, and I'm very grateful for this awesome community of people, the Teachers and Personal Coaches that started out where you and I are right now.
Cheers to you and many happy day's to come.
If there is anything that you need help with, just ask for help in the live chat. There's always someone available there at all times, waiting and ready to help.

Hi Danielle,

Would you mind sharing what idea did you have in mind for the niche? (You can private message me if you want). It's good to spend some time in deciding on your niche before you fully commit to it, so just that you are happy with the niche you've chosen.

Your niche should not be too broad but broad enough so that you can branch out and get good content ideas.
For example "Cars" would be a broad niche, even: "Sports cars" could be a broad niche. But something like: "How to Repair a car on your own" could be a good niche, because you could write about different parts of the car that could be repaired and you are setting a tone for your niche, which is repairing cars. However if you choose: "How to repair transmission for the car" - that could be too narrow because you can then only talk about transmissions and can quickly run out of ideas.

Just wanted to give you an idea. Let me know if this makes sense.

I have narrowed it down to 3 potential niches, they are kind of all over the place, lol:

1) Sneaker Culture
I love sneakers, probably too much. All accessories actually, sneakers, belts, jackets, hats...

2) Social Media Marketing
My main business is Web Design/Development but I have been wanting to move more to just doing Social Media Marketing anyway so this may be a good move, it will integrate my efforts here at WA with my main business.

3) Basketball
I love Basketball, but this Niche seems like it would be really difficult to work. What could I sell? I am not going to push sketchy how to get a 30" vertical videos, and I think trying to find and convert traffic for clothing sales at Nike etc. would be hella tough.

So now I plan to do some market research to see how viable these three options are and then choose from there.

**If anyone has experience in these or related niche's and would like to offer some input I would be grateful.

**If anyone can give me some guidance or tools to use to help in researching keywords etc. for these 3 niches to compare their viability that would also be awesome!

Thanks to all who took the time to read!

Cool set of niches, I think the Sneaker Culture one is interesting because people do love to shop around for those kind of shoes. In the UK we tend to call them trainers but folks will go quite a long way to find something unique.

SM marketing would probably be better and maybe and even though I'm no expert you'd be better off maybe looking into the Affiliate Bootcamp, though it depends on what you want focus on.

Even those who have a fair bit of know how have found this site to be enriching. All the best in what you plan to do :)

I seem to remember reading that we can actually build two websites, can someone confirm? Any reason not (other than perhaps splitting focus and finding the time and energy to build both) to build both from the beginning? I'm thinking I would go through process as I continue to decide what niche I want to develop.

Stick with this... Gain experience with WA first, then at a later date if you decide you still want to promote WA after all, then setup another site (providing your initial one has gained momentum).

Hi - yes, you have 2 free websites which you can work on for up to 6 months.

It's not recommended to try and do both sets of training at the same time. They start off broadly the same, but then take off in different directions and get more in-depth.

Trying to apply each one to a different website can be challenging, and adding content to two sites at once is very time-consuming.

Decide which subject you would be more comfortable writing about - your own niche or money making online, with an emphasis on promoting WA.

That video is very helpful... I have considered doing a miniature war gaming website as Warhammer 40k is one of my hobbies, I've not kept up with my work in it and wanted motivation to work in that field, writing about it and promoting it would be a good reason to pick up the paints again. I carried out a Google search and found there are several sites that offer commissions in that niche. Here in the UK there is a lot of growth in miniature war-gaming, it breaks out in to historical, fantasy and future genres. It's important to work on something where you have excitement for, cause if it's not fun, it won't be enjoyable. I think it could be win win.

Also regarding Affiliate Bootcamp, considering how much this site has enriched me in just few days, I'd happily promote it out of gratitude :)

Kyle Premium
Both could be viable directions for your niche. Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

So what happens when someone clicks on a link but doesn’t immediately buy it? I buy everything from amazon through their app. So if something were recommended, I would go the app and not click on the link to buy. Or I might click on the link but buy later via the app. Do you only make money when someone clicks on the link and buys right then and there?
Reply
ChristineDu1 Premium
When someone clicks on your link and buys, you get a commission, because your website code is in the link. If the reader leaves the website and buys via the Amazon app, then you can't make money, because he/she is not using your link.

If someone clicks on your link and doesn't buy, but clicks through to another product on Amazon, you can still get a commission (again, your code is in the link)

I am so overwhelmed and so excited about WA that I am really lost for words.
I have barely been a Premium member for a week and have been asking myself: How come I never heard about Wealthy Affiliate until now?
I have literally invested thousands of pounds fumbling around in my attempts to create at least one website and promote my personal skills for the benefit of mankind. All I have acquired hitherto is information overload pulling my 'tentacles' as it were!
Thank God I have at last found a haven where I feel very much at home and am made to feel so welcome and so important.
The welcome training from Kyle and Carson are so EASY TO FOLLOW I am so impressed and feel very confident that I am now going to MAKE IT AT LONG LAST!
Many thanks to Kyle and Carson and I am grateful to the entire community for their welcome comments and contribution since I became a Premium member.
Bless you all, and watch this space. Bye for now.

Hi everyone , I'm going to write a new post about the lighting effect DJ use, so I did my keyword research and I narrowed my keyword but my question is

If I choose "Best DJ lighting effects 2019" with 0 QSR and <10 Avg, am I going to rank as well for "Best DJ lighting effects" who's got 15 QSR and 32 Avg ?

Sometimes I try a long tail keyword who I would personally type on Google but unfortunately I've got no QSR and no Avg

So I would like to know when I choose a long tail Keyword like
"Best DJ lighting effects" am I ranking as well for "lighting effects"?

Have a look on the last screenshot, as soon as I had the word "best" everything drop down to 0

Thanks I hope I've been not too confusing

Best DJ Lighting Effects 2019.

You could go for that, this way you are targeting all the variations of the keywords within. Don't stress too much about any one keyword though, do research and create a list of the next 5-10 keywords you are going to build content around.

That is the preferred approach here, nice work on the research though.

Thanks very much
I'm very focus on that AVG and QSR number but I'm gonna follow your advice and create my list

I finished my first 10 lessons but I am hesitant to become a premium member...is there a way to make my website work and make money without going premium? If I can see that I can make one small sale then i will be confident to put money into becoming a premium member...

Hi - you may remain a Starter member and operate your free SiteRubix website for up to 6 months.

A couple of things to consider ... after your first 7 days, you'll no longer be able to communicate on the WA platform (to ask questions, as you have just done). You'll also lose the special $19 special offer for your first month of Premium.

Also, Starter members' free SiteRubix websites are deleted at 6 months if they do not upgrade to Premium membership by that time.

Dear Toni,

Thanks for asking...

I do appreciate your question.

First I would like to inform you... You are here to learn about making money online. Without learning there is no earning.

The first ten free lessons is to show you the potential of this platform and training.

There are a lot more to learn. Also, I like to inform you this is an University to learn about making money online.

After joining a college if a student says let me earn first from what I learned from the two weeks classes and then I will continue... What will be the advise he will get and if you are his professor what you will tell him?

Dear Toni...

The Truth is in order to make money online it will take time, effort and work. You are building an online business.

You have to go through the learning before earning.

Also, I like to inform you...

You need to give enough time for your business to succeed. What you learned from the ten lessons is just the tip of an iceberg.

Hope this helps!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I am here to help you.

A lot of people are hesitant about going premium and I looked at it this way.
Do you want to build a business online?
Is this just a hobby?
Are you serious and want to make money online?

If it is a hobby then stay as a free member, however, if you are serious about learning all the skills and using the amazing tools here in WA, invest in yourself and get building.

Building a business of any kind takes money, an investment in yourself and your future and hard work consistently and only you know how you want to play this

I totally get what you're saying but the very definition of an entrepreneur is being a risk taker, putting yourself out there and hoping for the best return. That's why sometimes being an entrepreneur is so difficult and scary. But if you don't put yourself out there you may ask the question later what if I had done things different. It's a good idea to answer those questions and know than it is to not pursue your passion and wonder if it would have ever worked out. Live your best life. Good luck my friend.

I think the main focus here is not the $49/m, but is the greatest satisfaction that you will have, once you achieve your goals, and to be part of the many success stories.

Hey there! I'm actually impressed with this and feeling very positive and optimistic for the first time in years. My question is the following: If I should buy the premium package, therefore have access to an extensive training and support not to mention getting websites and all the extras, will I lose all my deals with respect to the websites, if lets say after 6 months or a year later decide to cancel my membership with Wealthy Affiliate? It's just a scenario I'm thinking of at this stage of the training. I am aware that this way of thinking could change further on into the training.

If you cancel your membership then you’d need to backup your websites & host them elsewhere if you wish to keep them online... like you would with any web host :)

Dale has given you a great answer about the upgrade question.

I just wanted to add an answer for your question about how quickly you can start earning.

This is really different from person to person. A lot of it comes down to the hours you put in. But realistically, most people start seeing some income after 3-6 months if they make an effort and follow the training here step-by-step. For some it takes shorter and for some longer.

There are a couple of good articles here you can read about more about this aspect: Hope this helps and let me know you you have any other questions.

Still too brand new too have much of an opinion on how effective this all is. But have to say, finding that the free 10 day trial and being able to work through the videos at my own pace is really helpful. Its just a suggestion for the professional affliates who make the 50% on selling the programme but being able to work through it is really appealing to people like me. I think there are a lot like myself who are realistic about the amount of work it actually must take, happy to work at it, who are happy to pay for the guidance rather than go look for it.

Hi Rebecca,

It is my opinion that affiliate marketing is the ideal business to run working from home. The harder you work, the more you earn.

Unfortunately, my day JOB gets in my way, along with my home-life, so I don't get too much time to put into my affiliate business as I'd like. But, my motto is "Keep Moving Forward."

If you need any help or have any questions, then feel free to ask.

I'm only a hop, skip and a jump away at http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/paulrevans57

Keep up with the training and take it at your own pace. It will all make sense eventually.

Best wishes,

Question? Do i have to pay for each domain name. Can I get an
e-mail address to match my domain name. Does Weathly Affiliate have autoresponders? I am a preminum member.


While on this site (Friday, 06/07/2019, 9:39pm PST) the page keeps blinking as if a screen shot is being taken very 30 seconds. Should I be concerned? Should i restart my laptop.

Yes domains cost about $13.99 a year, but as a premium member it is hosted here for free. You can use an outside autoresponder like Aweber. You can get an Email here for your premium domains, no email for free sites.

Charlotte, welcome to WA!

Yes, you do pay for each domain name you purchase, but as a premium member, you can host several websites on siterubix without buying a domain name.

Yes, you can set up both email addresses and email forwards with your domain name after you purchase it.

No, WA does not offer an autoresponder program. If you feel you need that then you will need to find a separate program for that.

I'm sorry I cannot help with the laptop issue other than to say I have learned that many electronics behave better after being rebooted. I have had no issues with the WA site tonight.

Hope some of that helps. Feel free to ask if you need more information about any of this.

Hi Manua

Are you saying your carriage return to create paragraphs hasn't worked?

Did you publish from the SiteContent or from your WP admin dashboard?

Whenever you want to edit a post or page (whether it's published or in draft form) go to your wordpress admin dashboard.
> Select the appropriate post or page section in the left hand menu, you'll get a listing of your posts or pages.
> Select the post or page title you want to edit, this will open it in the edit mode.
> Make your changes & don't forget to Publish again for the changes to take effect.

Hope this helps :)

You might be using the new version of Wordpress called Guttenberg. I'm not even sure how to use that! lol

You might want to go to add a plugin to make writing Wordpress posts a little easier. (Unless you're getting by with Guttenberg ok.)

If you want to make it a little easier, then go to your Wordpress dashboard --> Plugins --> Add New

In the search, type "Classic Editor" and hit "Install now". Then activate it.

This will make editing your posts easier, especially if this is all new to you.

Then when you edit your About Me page, you can easily add paragraphs by hitting enter between each one.

Hi. I really liked the video about the Site Content. However, I have a bit of a complex situation.

When I first joined WA in 2014 I had a site about "how to make money online", it was published but I left WA and only returned about a week ago.

The thing is, I have created another website and these are my concerns:

- My new website is not "Wealth Creation Online", I would like to use the about me information that I previously wrote on my new website;

- I also want to use my first post on the old site on this new site;

- On my new site, I will be focusing on forex trading as the preferred online business and would like to promote a company that I am a member of where people are taught how to trade forex and there is also a multi-level marketing component that I am also a member of and would like to promote for new people to join below me. I also have a Url from that company that I would send to people to join the company.

- My main questions are: how do I promote forex as the preferred online business, how do I promote the multi-level marketing component of the company that I am a part of and how do I promote my Url from that company to get leads to join my multi-level marketing component. How do I use the old content and for it to not be flagged as duplicated content?

Grateful for your guidance.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
If you built the old site through WA, I would assume you could just save the content, completely delete the site, and post the content on the new site. If Google cannot find the old site (because it was deleted), I don't imagine it will count as duplicate.

As far as promoting a Forex site, it wouldn't necessarily be any different than any other niche site. You could just write helpful articles educating readers about the various aspects of Forex, how to get started, costs, risks, etc. The URL would then just be like any other affiliate link like we cover in training.

The only issue I see is perhaps the MLM component. Not that it's "bad" or can't be done -- I've seen people do it -- but that often MLM companies have very stringent guidelines on where and how you can promote them, typically so they can protect their brand. Just make sure you're not violating any of their policies and you should be fine.

Hope that helps :-)

Hi, ThuthukaniC1, I'm also new here and had a hard time paying for my first premium month and just 5 minutes ago paid for my second premium month 4 days late. But you know you can use the free stuff as long as you like. I believe, all that you have done so far and with your website and stuff if you have already picked out a site you can still work on inside the WordPress editor while you wait to pay your premium membership. Just because you are going to be late paying I know you can only go so far but all your stuff will still be here on the free stuff. I hope that helps, so don't worry it will all work out they don't just lock you out.

Sorry maybe a dumb question
So you can advertise almost the same product from different sellers on your website and still get the commission
For example
Your website is playstations and on the website you have different links say a link for a ps from toys’r’us, another for a ps from smyths toys then a link for a ps from game and you would get the commission from those links
Is that right?

No worries. Think of your site as revolving around your niche idea, not necessarily around products. As long as what you are linking to is related to the niche your audience expects, it pretty much doesn't matter where the link goes. Although, keep in mind that more popular or authoritative sites like Wal-Mart, Amazon, etc. do tend to build more trust with your reader.

Yes, you can. You can promote as many affiliate programs on your website as you like.

Over time you will likely be promoting many different products/services on your website and this will take place as your build out content and you see a good match between an audience and a product.

Remember, your role as an affiliate is to connect your traffic (an audience) with a product or service that will benefit them. This will be based on the context and relevance of the content.

That's not true Wresh. You'll lose acces to live chat, yes. And you won't have acces to the rest of the official training. But you can still communicate with WA and ask questions, just the way you did here.

And if you type your question in the search bar at the top, you'll find loads of WA blog posts and tutorials and trainings from other members that you can learn from.

It'll be more challenging and a bit more work, but you will still have the support of this community and acces to help.

Remember that once you go Premium, you can't go back to being a free member. But you can stay a free member for as long as you like.

nope - comment privileges expire the same time as live chat for starters.
so starters, click the follow buttons on the members and find their sites and hopefully their emails to ask questions.

Thank you very much for getting back to me BvVugt. Your answer was exactelly the one I was looking for. I was a bit sceptic about not being able to communicate at all at any level. I think in the end it was just me missunderstanding the concept och "interacting with people" :)

Thank you =)

Hello Wresh: Of course you want to become a premium member. It's almost impossible not to. You are correct, you will not be able to do any of those things unless you become a premium member. I wanted to be able to ask questions and get answers. I wanted to be able to use the support group when needed. The benefits are irreplaceable. So go ahead and do it. You'll be so glad you did,

Hello! Complete newbie here. Choosing my first niche. The first thing that came to mind was cameras. I love photography (not that I'm much good at it). My question is, am I building my first website based on one particular camera? Or cameras and photography as a whole? I hope this makes sense.
Reply
Gaia11 Premium
I think you can do both, you can choose different cameras and put affiliate links that are linked to the same company. For example if you use Amazon you can put different cameras with affiliate links to amazon. Or just one same product with different affiliate links, so one is amazon another ebay and so one. Hope it makes sense :)

It's probably better to create pages about different types of camera, e.g. bridge camera, DSLR etc, then review specific types e.g. Nikon P1000 with outbound links from the review.

Hope I'm not teaching you to suck eggs :).

Good luck.

Hi guys if i start with the free website whilst i'm learning as a starter member with WA and then upgrade to premium down the road can i take that free site with all its content and change it to a .com domain or would i have to start from scratch?

I am a newbie to WA & still in training. I have always wondered about how this really works. I have found a new love for technology so I'm taking a few online course for it. Then I came across this website and I am intrigued with it. So I will stick around. I'm only on my second step in training hopefully I can have a successful website. I honestly feel after reading some discussions that my goals are little to high to start off with.

In "what kind of website do you want to build?", there are three categories namely; On a free domain, On a domain I own and Register a domain, apart from being a starter which only allows you to use On a free domain, what determines the usage of the other two categories? or can somebody help me understand the three categories so that I can decision on which one I can use?
Reply

if you haven't bought a domain - you have one choice - build a free one.
if you have bought a domain name then you can add wordpress and the plugins to this domain - second one.
if you want ot purchase a domain then choose the third one and you will be taken ot sitedomains where you acn search and purchase a domain name.
so if you have just started then choose the first one - or you want to create a test site.
if you have bought a domain name and want to set it up then the second
and if you are looking for a domain name then the third,.
Good luck Peter

I have always thought that being a n affiliate was not requiring a website....this whole thing requires websites for each niche....I guess that those that do not have websites do not make much money...I was wrong perhaps but still that feeling is in me that a website costs lots of money and many do not do it. You have figured out how to make the most money so I have determined that having a website is the best way to go....does WA pay for hosting and domains and ads and solo ads ...that's what costs so much. Right now my money pays my bills and leaves nothing for me....Social Security...its the pits...but I am grateful for it.

Hi - as a starter member you are given 2 free websites to work on for up to 6 months. If you upgrade to premium, you can purchase your own .com domain, and the hosting, security, 24-hour support and unlimited email addresses are included in your membership.

Premium membership is $49 per month. Please only upgrade if you can keep up with the payments because if you cancel, you can't go back to being a free starter.

You can buy your domain here, and it is approximately $13.99 per year.

WA doesn't pay for ads, you are taught how to attract free organic traffic to your website.

You can transfer a domain to WA, but you don't have to. It depends whether you want the help of WA Site Support when you've got problems with your website.

You could also keep your website where it is and just add a blog roll to it. All the training you get here at WA can be applied to any website or any affiliate marketing business.

You can still easily run traffic to your Shopify shop with any blog you build here. In fact, you can just incorporate your shop INTO your blog by just having a menu button on your blog that goes directly to your Shopify store. Then every post you write about, you should link it to your store this is how you'll drive traffic to your store from your blog. They don't have to sit on the same domain. You can create a new domain that has your shopify store domain name in it: yourstore.com could be yourstoreblog.com so you don't have to confuse your readers too much this way and they will see the two are related if you named your blog that way.

Hope this helps!

this is awesome, but it's got me thinking about my niche, apologies for going back there. I feel like there isn't much to write about in the nail beauty world. I don't want to find myself in a situation where I run out of content.

Another niche I am very passionate about is the subject of psychology, is it too late to switch or should I use my other website for that?

And if I do switch, how will the issue of revenue work?
Reply
Ropesa Premium
It's really up to you to choose a Niche that you feel comfortable with and a Niche that you are passionate about because you will be doing a lot of writing about that topic.
I think there is a lot to write about nails but if you feel like you will get stuck, then it's wise to move on to another Niche rather than waste time.

I have a question about Psychology, are you knowledgeable in that field? and if so, are you passionate about that field, can you talk about things related to Psychology all day?
Reply
I did psychology at University, four modules and I love it so much. I don't have a qualification IN psychology but I am freelancer and I find psychology topics very enjoyable and easy to tackle, so to answer your question, I can talk about psychology all my life.

But as a niche, I am not sure which angle I would go with.

About nails, do you have any angles I can take?
Reply
Ropesa Premium
OK, well, one thing is for sure you are passionate about Psychology, I can hear it in your tone, the only problem is monetization, and also I could be wrong but Google favors sites that a run by qualified Doctors when it comes to things concerning the medical field, and I think Psychology falls under Medical?

Well, when it comes to nails, you can do reviews of nail care products, you can also give tips on how to keep your nails healthy and how to strengthen your nails.
you can also do reviews of hand and nail treatments as well as the best nail polish for weak nails.

Where is WA located in the US? You didn’t mention what each item or area costs. I’m going to be without my computer for 10 days starting tomorrow while It goes in. For repair, so now is the only time I’ll be able to ask questions and I don’t know the things I need to know about. For instance, does the Premium Program costs $10,000 to buy into it? Could I choose Legal Medical Marijuana to promote I&/or advertise & If so, who fulfills the ordered product? What is my commission breakdown at each level? I am currently in marijuana marketing in Europe where it is legal everywhere. However, here in the states, I believe it is only legal in 13 states so how does that affect me & my platform. This is extremely new to me and I have 100 more questions. I don;t even know if the questions I asked fit into WA’s desired Profiles. Please advise tonight as they are picking up my computer tomorrow.
I’m going to watch the account Set Up V ideologue now and I’m sure I’ll have a lot more questions.I can’t upgrade to Premium now because I don’t know enough yet to know whether it Is for me so what do I do when I get my computer back and start looking at your program again?. I won’t have any help[.\\\

Hi Liz - WA is actually based in Canada.

You can remain as a starter member if you wish, and you are given 2 free websites to work on for up to 6 months. The limitation with this is that you only have access to the first 10 lessons and limited support.

If you choose to upgrade, the first month costs $19 if you go premium within the first 7 days. After that, it is $49 per month with a recurring subscription. You can cancel at any time, but you lose all access to this platform.

It is cheaper to go 6 monthly or yearly, but you have to pay in a lump sum and there are no refunds.

You can promote any product you wish. There are tens of thousands of affiliate programs. You need to read the terms and conditions of any you are interested in, to find out their rates of commission.
Reply
Kettei Premium
I'm not sure where you get the figure of $10,000 from!
Wealthy Affiliate costs $49 a month on a rolling subscription basis.

The training teaches you how to find a niche (although it sounds like you've already selected medical marijuana), how to set your site up and create your content.

You can also use the Affiliate Programs tool to find programs that you can promote. The commission structure is different from one affiliate network to another - WA is not responsible for the affiliates you choose to work with! I STRONGLY recommend that you do not sign up with any affiliate networks that expect you to pay to join them. You shouldn't have to pay to promote someone else's products.

I hope this helps.

The key to improving your site's design and layout is to learn how to use your Wordpress theme.

Therefore, I recommend that you look for tutorials for your theme in YouTube. Just write your theme's name on YouTube + tutorial. So, "XXX-THEME tutorial".

If you feel that your theme is very hard to use, you can choose another one. I always recommend a theme that is constantly updated and tons of people are using it.

You can keep your current site and implement what you learn here on the site you already have. If you want to, you can also move the domains you already have to be hosted here at WA.

Hope this answers your questions.

Thank you for your answer.

How can I share posts from my already existing site on WA ?

I've just watched the 3rd video about choosing the niches. I think Western Astrology would fit my best to my profile, but I'm an Astrologer myself, so I wouldn't like to promote competitors on my site :-) Books about Astrology, Jungian Psychology,Tarot cards, self-help literature, spirituality jewelry, Yoga, Martial Arts, etc would be more suitable. Actually I found 21 niches matching to my profile. Can I work with more niches simultaneously if I'm not a premium member or there is only one choice ? Do you have some suggestions maybe for niches in line with the profile of my blog but still not interfering with my services? :-)

Will WA-program be applicable on my Astrology site in Hungarian or only on the English one ? ( My current main goal is to boost up the traffic on my English site and monetize it )

I'm quite new on this site as I've just joined it. So far I find it very professional and I enjoy the training material.. :-) As far as I know WA is not known in Hungary. If the cooperation with WA will work out for me, I'd be happy to promote it in Hungary. However this is a longer term plan. My idea is to build a site for it on WA, translate the education material into Hungarian, and to promote the site according to its rules. Would this be a lucrative idea?
Reply
MikaelM Premium
Great to hear you are enjoying the training here so far Katalin.

Not sure what you mean about how you can share posts of your existing site here on WA? But the training will explain everything if you just keep going.

About niches, it sounds like you already have a lot of really great ideas. How many niches you can work with does not depend on you being Premium member or not. However, it is advisable to focus on just one niche at the time. This will make it a lot easier to rank in the search engines. So from that perspective, it would be better to focus on a narrow niche at first.

The great thing is also when you start working on it more and more relevant affiliate programs will come up so there will be plenty no matter what you choose.

And yes, what you learn here is definitely applicable for your site in Hungarian as well. You will learn the principles, how to get traffic, and how everything works and this can be applied to sites in any language. Personally, I am using a lot of what I have learned here on Danish sites as well and I know many members that have sites in other languages.

Promoting WA to Hungary could definitely be a lucrative idea. There is actually a whole course in here called the bootcamp about how to promote WA. But think it is a great idea to wait with that and really get to know everything WA has to offer and focus on your niche site for now not to spread out too much.

my question is if i once upgrade to premium membership do i have to pay every single month or it is one time paying to become a premium membership?
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - it is a recurring monthly subscription. The first month is discounted to $19 if you upgrade within 7 days. From then on, it is $49 per month, every month. It works out cheaper if you join 6-monthly or yearly, but then it has to be paid in a lump sum.

Please note, once you have upgraded, if you then cancel your membership (which you can do whenever you want), then you can't go back to being a free starter and will lose all access to this platform.

Therefore, its sometimes better to wait, until you are sure you can afford to continue.

You don't have to upgrade at all if you don't want to. You can stay as a starter member and work on your 2 free websites for up to 6 months. However, you will be limited to only the first 10 lessons.

I would like to ask regarding building a website and product or niche. My problem is I don't have a product or niche, what I need is to follow someone or sell the products for others, I don't have a special idea or product I can use it on website, do I need to build a website and choose a niche or there is someone in WA will do that and then I can just post the affiliate links.
please, I need to understand this part because its the base for this business.
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - you need to choose a niche you are passionate about, a subject you are interested in and can help people with. What are your hobbies and interests?

You will be building your own website, it is covered step by step in the training process. You then write articles on your chosen niche to attract visitors, who will hopefully buy your recommended products through your affiliate links.

You don't need to personally own the products, you will be directing people to the likes of Amazon, and earn commission.

Hi, you can't change the URL of an existing site.
You can copy and paste all content to a new website and before you publish delete the content on the old site for not having duplicate content.
What you lose by doing this is the age of the older website.
There is a way to redirect the old site to the new one but this you would have to ask SiteSupport :)

Depends if its a bought domain or not.
If bought then no you cannot change it.

If its a free SiteRubix then transfer everything over to a new domain and delete the old one.

Thank you. A copy/paste option is all I would need

Do you know where I would find this copy and paste option?

Thank you Robert. How would I go about copying all the content to the new domain?

You would need a plugin called Updraft.

There is a paid option but the free one would suit your needs.

Remember to have the same theme in your new site as the old.

Also you will need to have the plugin installed on the new one as well.

Read this and if its a fit for you then download it to your current site and then again to your new one.

remember also that you will need to delete the old site through your Google Console to avoid duplicate content.

Enjoy your Thursday.

I guess you'd have to copy each post, page one at the time by marking all, copy and then paste on the new site.
Make sure not to publish the same content on two websites.

So yeah, I have just done my first three tasks. My bio did get a bit long, but hey, why not :) Now it's all about going forward. I need to refresh all my knowledge so I will do all the lessons and then some, but I will take action while I still do my lessons. I see no reason for waiting on taking action. Off course I need to learn what I am supposed to do, but yeah. This will be great! :))

Sounds like a good plan. Keep up that enthusiasm and that "can do" attitude. You'll make it happen for sure!

Hi Kyle & Carson,

I am Australia based but originally from Vietnam. I have a great passion for cooking, food styling, food photography, wellness and nutrition, and I am working on my own website sharing my hobbies (food, kitchen appliance & gadget review, recipes, nutrition knowledge).
In order to join WA's program, is it required my website MUST be in English or could be in other languages? I am considering should I target Aussie moms or Vietnamese moms whom I am more familiar and most comfortable with?

Cheers,
Hayley

You have lots of great ideas there! Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Hi guys, I’m torn on how to best pick my niche. My mind keeps coming back to a personal/household budgeting and finance website. I feel like that may be a bit saturated, and also not sure about the variety of affiliate products available for that. Any ideas?
Other high interests of mine are parenting (I have a 19 month old daughter), dog training, health and fitness. I’ve struggled with and grown in all of these areas, so I would love to eventually have niche sites in multiple areas of all these topics. I’ve always had difficulty in choosing the best way to begin, and picking my first niche site is no different.
