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 the Website platform you have access to here. 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 "Setting Up Your Niche Website - The Initial Steps" video below.

 

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 three of the most useful plugins with your website automatically and your first step is going to be activating these plugins.

You will see the All in One SEO plugin, which we will be setting up in the next lesson. This is a plugin that is going to help you get found and ranked by search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo.

You will also see the Classic Editor plugin, which is already activated. This gives you access to the classic editor when you upgrade and create posts within your back office, which is preferrable (in particular when getting started) to the new and more modular editor. It is going to make your life a lot easier and it is already set up for you so you have to do nothing from you end.

Lastly, the Kraken Image Optimization plugin is going to compress and optimize all of the images on your website automatically. This is really sophisticated and advanced platform that is going to lead to better website speeds, a better user experience, and better search engine rankings. This is already set-up optimally for you.

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. There may be a few different Pages, including the Privacy Policy page. You can delete all of these pages as we are going to be starting fresh with our own content and starting the build out process of this in upcoming lessons.

**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!

I am confused about setting up my website, and which platforms it will show up on. Facebook? Google? Also today I purchased Connect Explore to maximize my target audience which was expensive. Do I keep it? Can I use it with what I’m doing with my website with Wealthy Affiliate?

Hi ... When your website is first created, you will have to wait for google to find it. This is called indexing.

Later on you can maximize your exposure by adding the site to social media. This can be done in the Social tab within your AIO SEO plugin or you can use a separate social media plugin such as Sassy Social. This process will come later in Level 3 of the training.

I do not have any experience with Connect Explore so I can't offer any insight into that aspect of your question. I think you might be getting a little ahead of yourself with this however, since it all starts with creating the site and building it out with lots of helpful, unique content to start the process of ranking and drawing in traffic to the site.

Just continue to follow the training and take it one step at a time. This is a long term commitment and as such it takes a lot of time and work to get a new site off the ground. Baby steps and you'll get there :)

Best of luck to you moving forward!

You're very welcome, happy to help anytime!

By the way, I really commend you on what you do (or did) for a living. I have an autistic son who works with several special education teachers and paraprofessionals. They have really made a huge difference in both mine, and my son's life, and I couldn't be more grateful :)

You know what; I highly suggest you ask Kyle and Carson; they are The Top Pros; and for sure can advise.

Just click the magnifying glass in the top right menu; and in the search bar; put in Kyle.

After that; do the same for Carson too.

For sure they can help.

I have been told they can be busy; so it is best to ask both.

Hope this help and encourages?

Your website is very important because it is something you own and can control. Yes, you can use other social media but the rules and usage can change. So that's why it is important to focus on you website and make it the greatest source of information there in on the internet for your niche.

Hi

In respect to your Connect Explore, you'd have to decide whether you are wanting it or not, however it is not a requirement having glanced a bit of a review

https://socialleadfreak.com/connect-explore-review/

These features are found within Facebook Advertising platform and your campaigns need be testing, so you run a campaign, check it twice a day and study stats, then you make out a subset of the campaign whereby you choose a different search criteria based on your findings in your first campaign and run it again, process repeats itself, till you find a sweet spot you can leverage and scale.

Connect Explore believe connects to Facebook through an API. You can instead open a Facebook Business account and run an ad account.

Hi

Please see below resource how to Your site once build goes online and global. You would have figured out a niche before you set it up, it is very important to start out with a siterubix subdomain till you are completely figured out you niche, as once you register a dot com domain, and the odd occasion you changed your mind, you will not be able change the URL.

Some info how to go about a niche

A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

For example if you are in yoga
Yoga exercises for beginners

When deciding on a niche try narrow it down to a more specific niche, you can ask yourself the following question:

So I want to help people with ____________________ ?

Fill in the blank and you are going to get closer to a specific audience. Once a site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority you can then scale to cover another subcategory.

See example blog post below --------------------
Soon it will get indexed by Google, it means it was found and time now to start adding content to your site.

Onward

You would have written 20 - 30 posts and have some traffic to be able apply for affiliate programs as typically they will check your site for relevance and traffic prior approval.

For Amazon it is 10 - 15 posts.

Once accepted, they've given you material and special tracking code links you can share on your site.

Essentially you are writing more informational posts so that you do not sound so salesy to Google and if there’s a solution, a detailed analysis review post for your visitors to let them make an informed decision whether to go click your links and go purchase the focused item you proposed to solve their issue.

Once they do, and in accordance with your affiliation terms and conditions, how commission payouts are tracked and paid. You need to read up how payments are made because different programs follow different rules; some pay by check others via PayPal or straight to your check account.

I would always adhere to your affiliate program terms and conditions.

Once you publish a post you can share it onward to social media platform like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram etc. Now not all social media platforms would suffice, you are wanting know your audience well and their hangouts so that you target them appropriately

You may use Sassy Social plugin for this purpose In the first instance,

How much minimum time requires to build a website??
Reply
jghwebbrand Premium
The technical website build is done by software and takes 30 seconds. Its adding the content posts that takes time. It is suggested that 2 -3 posts be written and published per week. The minimum length should be 1000 words. So that will give you some idea how long it may take if you have an authority site with 100 posts.

The training recommends one niche per website. I think that approach works very well for a few reasons. 1 you are not overloading your visitors/potential buyers with info; and making it difficult for them to narrow down their search as well. 2) I think focusing on one area you really care about keeps you active and learning at the same time.

Just my opinion of course ;) And I'm still pretty new. But there's a lot of wonderful people here to help you reach your own best potential (= successful yay!!).
Best wishes! Hope you continue...I'm sure you'll do well!

Hi

Real reason so that you not confuse Google or your visitors. And also when writing original content with low competition keywords to help being noticed by the search engines. You are wanting your site to start gaining traction, traffic and eventually authority.

Thanks for your great thoughts here.
Yes, it is important to keep a website focused on one niche. Visitors search for something specific and are excited when they find so much helpful information on one site.

Like the way you are thinking and processing what you are learning.

Like you said, I agree so much!!

But I'm finding kind of difficult to focus on just one niche, although it would definitely be beneficial.

I still haven't started my website yet, I just started the training, so hopefully once I have a better knowledge about this field, I can focus on one niche and get started.

Wish you the best luck, Keep it Up!!!!

King Regards,
Sanduni

I'm thinking I'd like my niche to be in mindfulness or meditation. I meditate regularly myself, but I'd like to help others find meditation programs that suit their needs.

So would my niche just simply be online meditation programs?

What about books instead of programs? Is that a viable niche?

I'm trying not to think too hard about the content I'd create around the subject... because I'm not an expert!

That's a great niche to be in however broad you may want to narrow it down to a subcategory starting out

For example if you are in meditation
Meditation Essentials for beginners, there's also exercises, sleep, anxiety, weight loss, experiences, etc.

Online meditation programs is what you would promote on your site vs a niche subject.

Great niche idea!
Now if you can define the group of people you want to share mediation with that you be best. For example Mediation resources for beginners or something like that. You can refer both books and course.

Alright, so how about...

A group of people looking for 'meditation journals'.

My niche would then be meditation journals?
Reply
JeannineC Premium
There are lots of things which could work for that niche. In addition to programs, you can do things like mats, journals, music (like flute music - very relaxing), essential oils, comfortable clothing to meditate in, etc. So yes, that niche could easily work.

You know what: I am just going to say; try to pick a Niche as Broad as possible. This is my suggestion.

That way; you would have a bigger audience. You would have more potential Customers. And you would be able to help more potential Customers.

So, I am just suggesting; have a Niche as broad as possible. Not only all that; but some Members have complained to me in the past; they run out of topics to make new posts about.

Hope this helps and encourages?

As a Premium Member, can I have other domains hosted by you that I would use to grow interest but are not an affiliate site/does not promote anything. Maybe I want a personal website (example) where I put up some pictures of family so other family members acrioss thre world can visit that website to find out what's happening about our family in America? In other words that type of website is not for making sales/money
