You have likely heard the term "keyword research". This is the act of finding keyword phrases that are relevant to your niche and deciding whether or not it is appropriate to build content around that particular keyword.

Keywords are going to be the “root” of all your SEO success.

First Off, WHAT IS A KEYWORD?

A keyword is simply a word or phrase that people search for in the search engines. Every time you do a google search you are entering a "keyword" into the search box.

For example, here is an example search I did in Google.

This is a keyword. I searched for something that I was looking for and Google is going to provide me with the most relevant results (see below).

When I click on one of these results, I am taken to a website that has been "ranked" in Google. If I purchase something from that page or click an ad, that website owner will make money as a result.


With your SEO and your keyword research efforts, your goal is going to be to building a list of relevant keywords to your niche, and then working to rank them in Google just like this.

There are literally MILLIONS of keywords in every niche, leading to incredible potential. And by being a member at Wealthy Affiliate and what you are going to learn here about proper "ranking techniques", you are going to have the competitive edge over your competition.

In this lesson you are going to be tasked to come up with a few "keywords" relevant to your website and your niche.

Each Post You Create Will Be Targeting a Keyword...


Moving forward, you are going to be building content on your website. Each page of content that you create will target a brand new keyword (and we will be showing you how).

This means that every page/post will have the opportunity to rank under that given keyword in Google and lead to you getting traffic.

100 posts = 100 target keywords = 100+ potential Google rankings.

This can and will lead to mass amounts of traffic and those that follow along with this training are going to see their traffic continue to go up with every "keyword targeted" page or post that they create on their website.

Remember, Google and other search engines exist because of CONTENT and if you can deliver quality content (that targets low competition keywords), you will be able to get great rankings!

I have created a video walk-through of this lesson and I suggest you watch on keyword mastery. It is going to increase your comfort level with keywords by 100 fold!

DISCUSS VIDEO: Keyword Mastery - Keywords are the Foundation of Your Success

Task 1: Perform 5 different searches using Jaaxy.com

Your next task is going to be performing 5 searches relevant to your niche using the Jaaxy Keyword Tool.

There is a quick search feature available to you right within the Jaaxy menu. You simply click on the menu and it will pop up the submenu, with the search available right within it.

You can see I have entered "increase vertical jump" into the search (as shown below).

My suggestion is to start broad with a few of your searches (ie. two or three word searches). For example if your niche was "basketball skills & drills", you might want to start with the search terms:
  • basketball drills
  • basketball skills
  • increase vertical jump
  • dribbling drills
  • etc

After performing the search, you will simply want to click the "magnifying glass" icon or press enter on your keyboard.

Here are how the search results look for the "increase vertical jump" search.

As you can see there are several columns of "keyword data". These are all very important when it comes to choosing keywords that are going to be useful to you.

  • Keyword. This is the search phrase that the data to the right of it is representing.
  • Avg. This is the overall monthly traffic this search term gets, globally.
  • Traffic. This is the estimated amount of traffic you will get if you rank on the first page of Google under this term.
  • QSR. Known as Quoted Search Results, this is the exact number of results in Google that you are competing with under this search phrase. In other words, this is how much competition you have.
  • KQI (Keyword Quality Indicator)

If you do a search and you don't see the full data, you simply need to click the "Get QSR" link and it will fetch the data for you. You will see that if that particular keyword has never been searched before.

Next, I want to discuss how to "choose" appropriate keywords for your content. This is critical in terms of getting ranked in Google and being the most efficient with your time. Don't worry though, it isn't all that complex. :)

The Rules of a Quality Keyword

There are a few rules that you need to follow

Rule #1: More than 30 monthly searches. You want your far left "Avg" column to ideally be greater than 30. Sometimes it is OK to go with a search volume less than this, but over 30 searches per month is ideal.

Rule #2: Less than 100 QSR (Competition). You want to keep your competition below 100 pages in Google, the lower the better though obviously. You will likely come across many terms with less than 100 QSR when doing your research, and that is even better!

As you progress with your website, under 200 is perfectly fine as you will be gaining more authority and better ranks in search engines.

Rule #3: Keyword must make sense. This is critically important. If the keyword doesn't make grammatical sense, don't use it. Do another search on the keyword that makes sense as that will likely give you different data and that is the data you want to measure.

An example of this is "best tips lose belly fat" which doesn't make grammatical sense (it is missing the "to"). I would do another search on this but this time "best tips to lose belly fat".

Do this exact process within your niche to come up with 5 Keywords.

ok..this may seem like a silly question but, do i write the "Home Description" in first person(i want to help people...) or "WE are focused on helping ...". Question 2: am i able to shorten my affiliate link , (ex. bit.ly). I think I'm just thinking too much because its starting to not make sense to me. Like, is my website just informational page with my affiliate link for what i think is the best quality product in CBD oil or am i placing their actual items on my page to purchase. I don't think i know what i'm doing.
Reply
From what I understand so far, you are only directing people to the retailers. What you are interested in is building a good website with appealing information. Then, when people buy from your links, you get comissions. I'm guessing you have to apply for affiliate programs in the websites you want (amazon, ebay, aliexpress, etc) so that then you can get those comissions.

As for the way to write, I would go for "we are focused on helping..." but that's just me.

God bless you!
Reply
You're doing great! I think write it in third person. That's what I've done. This is the description that comes up on the google search. So it will say something like "Information about CBD oil benefits and where to purchase" or something like that :)

As I proceed through the training, I wanted to do so from a perspective of what I intend to accomplish initially.
Before discovering wealthyaffilate, I was stepping through a course that instructed me to select a domain and logo and setup a webpage that would review various affiliate products and offer them for sale. There were to be multiple products in different niches selected from proven sellers on clickbank.com with prewritten landing pages. I purchased the domain powerfulproductreviews.com and logo as Step 1.
Should I abandon this goal and select a single niche only with a domain relevant to that niche?
Reply
Karin13 Premium
It is just my opinion, but what I have learned here is that smaller less broad niches work much better. I wonder though, if a review site dedicated to reviewing products could be a niche in itself?

I sure don't think you should abandon the work you've already done. If you haven't done a lot with the site already, you can make it be whatever you like and focus on product reviews.

Best wishes,
Karin 😁

It's kind of funny to think that you can basically pick anything and it has potential to make you money. But when you think about the fact that there are over 4 billion people online, products are out there because someone will purchase them. Question I have is do you pick something that may not cost a lot of money but will sell more frequently or do you pick something that costs more money but probably won't sell as often? Does that even matter?

You make it sound so easy to pick a domain name and a title, but I feel so much pressure in choosing the right one. It's important and kind of like a brand and an invitation to future visitors to choose the right name. Could you help make my niche more precise and choose the right domain for it.
I am a spiritual life coach and I'd like to specialize in meditation. The products I want to offer are linked to meditation, like the meditation pillows, wall hangings, mandala's, unique yoga mats, meditation music, books, card decks, other affiliates e-courses etc.
The people I would like to address are the ones creating their meditation space and beginning their practice.

Is this specific enough and do you feel where I'm getting at?
Hoping for a quick response, so I can get started in creating this fantastic webpage that needs to be born. :)

Ok so i see that the web site is through SiteRubix. and I know that they use WordPress. I have never used them so I was wondering. I like having more freedom than most WordPress sites give me.

You have all the freedom in the world with a wordpress website, they are the most widely used platform and there are 1,000's of themes and over 50,000 plugins (feature extensions) that you can leverage.

You can edit the code and modify it in any way that you like if you are more advanced, but there will be very little reason to do this. I come from a computer science background and I have no inclination of ever creating a website manually.

This is very much true. Everything you would do manually in code can be managed through plugins.

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. :)

Hello :) I am having trouble picking just one niche.. I feel like as I pick one, there are so many related niches.. For example, I like women's fashion but that is so broad, so I want to focus on women's fashion for petite women (it is so difficult to find petite clothing that actually looks cute). I am also a bit of an environmentalist so I enjoy sustainable fashion and refashioning/ preloved clothing and styling (particularly for petite women like myself). It would be fun to reinvent styles from the celebrities to fit a smaller frame too. In fact, the styling component is really what I love. Is "Petite Styling" a niche? I would love to do how to videos on upcycling or refashioning items that are thrifted or outfits that I have created based on looks of high end designers or celebrities. Or really simple sewing techniques like adding embroidery to denim or taking clothes in that are too big. Or styling advice like "how to use a belt to create curves" or "monochromatic styles for every occasion" etc. I am a petite woman myself and would really love to focus on that size (probably need to get into the Asian market too :).. Thoughts? It is so typical of me to like all the things! Haha! Though I feel like they're all inter-related.. And I can think of so many different affiliates for the above ideas..
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - petite styling sounds like a great niche, and as you have experience in the subject, it will gain you trust with your readers. Perhaps, the only thing you need to consider is the celebrity aspect. You can only use images on your website which are copyright-free, and they may be difficult to find for celebrities unless you wish to pay for them.
Reply
Thank you @DianeScorpio! I'll run with "Petite Styling" for now :) And you make a good point about the celebrity photos so I will look into for sure later! Perhaps if I use instagram or pinterest photos and then reference them? Could work? Or getting permission in other ways could work. Thanks for your reply!

You can't use photos from Instagram or Pinterest, as you don't know if the original was from a copyright free source. You should only use images from websites such as Pexels, Pixabay or Unsplash.

I guess I just want to know if there are going to be upsell's related to having and operating websites. I'm just trying to figure out what type of budget I need to be ready for.
I have a niche for the first one and I am ready to start building and making content, I just need to be sure what all is involved

Need to choose a domain and from what I got from the lesson video, its not as important as I thought. Just name it similar to your niche.

Should it contain keywords?

Should it be compatible with searching (to find my site) or do other elements accomplish that?

What is the difference between an owned domain and a WA domain? A WA domain can only exist within WA?

SiteRubix is a Sub-Domain.

DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - your domain name does not need to contain keywords, it should just be relevant to your niche. Visitors find your site by searching for the keywords in your content rather than by typing in its name.

A free WA website is known as a subdomain as it will end with the words Siterubix.com. It is a website like any other and will be accessible to anyone on the internet.

A purchased domain will end with .com or .org etc. It is seen as an authority and denotes you are taking your business seriously.

Nah, keyword specific domains like that are essentially a thing of the past. It used to be part of Google's algorithm, but people using it to try and beat the system got so ridiculous that they just stopped using it as a factor; they're much more sophisticated now.

As long as your domain and site title are relatively related to your niche and the target audience you are going after you should be fine. With the WA model, 99.9% of your traffic will come from the quality content you are creating. Rarely will people be searching for you by entering your exact domain.

This a question about publishing strategies and Google indexing / SEO ranking. I'm about to create a new website. I have already written 14 posts (as MS word docs) reviewing different products that are evergreen content but have published none of them.

Is it better to publish each article over a period of time so Google notes that I'm continuously updating my site and ranks me higher OR should I publish all the articles at once from the start so I have more content on my site for early users?

Also is it possible to input all the copy and imagery for post into the wordpress post template without publishing it ahead of time so I can see how it will look and front load the work without it being live on my site?
Reply
WA-Teammate Premium
... Hi Alex,

It'll be mixed opinion whether to publish all at once or over time, IMHO I say over time so the algorithm can pick up on each article, especially if there's engagement in the Comments section of each article post (WA Site Comments). On my short existence on this planet, patience has always proven to be the better choice...

And Yes, you can post an article in WP as a Draft, and Preview what it would look like as if it were Live.

 Hi everyone and welcome to my cordlesstolls website. I have loved using power tools ever since I was aloud to. I always loved building thing when I was growing up. I started out with a few hand tools and built up my tools as I got money and needed diffferent tools. When I started to buy the power tools they where a lot faster and I found them easy to use. When I got into using cordless tools it was even better because you didn't need a power source and cords to get in you way.
Over the years I have bought and used a lot of power tools. I have found a lot that worked and a few that did not work as well.


Help People find cordless tools.

Looks like a great start! Be sure to run it through grammar.ly or just ask another person to read through to catch any possible spelling/grammar errors. I can't speak for everyone else, but personally, when the grammar is off, it makes me question the products. For example: when you started your about me, the cordless tools would be the proper set up. You mention loving to use power tool ever since you were "aloud" to. Generally, when a person says "aloud", they mean verbally saying something. "Allowed" would be the proper word. So on, so forth. Best of luck to you!!

The best way to improve your writing is to read other peoples posts. That way you will improve on spelling and sentence structure.
Try to get in the habit of using the spellcheck at the end of each paragraph. What I do is write content. Leave it for a bit. Go back and read it (out loud is good) and tweak it abit.
I hope this helps

@b2m13k11 Two Tips for you:
1) Get Farlex Free Dictionary (runs on iPhone or Android) and is a spell check
2) Get ProWritingAid or Microsoft Word and use them to compose your writing. They will check your spelling AND grammar

I am living in Malaysia, if my website is linked with Amazon Affiliate Program or any products that only selling at US, my website traffic will become low on Google?

I am sry, my English is not well, if my question is hard to understand just let me know I will try asking in another way .TQ

Hi - you can join any of the Amazon sites from any country. The internet is a global marketplace. Amazon also has a feature called OneLink which directs customers to the correct site for their country.

For example, I am in the UK, but most of my traffic comes from the US, so I am signed up with both versions of Amazon.

Sounds like an interesting niche and one in which you are passionate about. That's really the key as it means you are far less likely to burn out creating all of the required content.

I think your next step is to start researching and see where the market is at. Start with "sports ministry" and run the numbers on Jaaxy, as well as doing a Google search to see what's already out there. Get a feel for if the niche is too big, too small, or just right.

Then repeat that process with various keywords and/or post titles that you might like to write about. Again, you're trying to get a feel for where you need to be.

Spend a few hours going through this process and you will have a pretty good idea on how to proceed. Any niche can be successful, but sometime you have to find an angle that separates you from the crowd.

Good luck, and if you have any questions just let us know. :-)

Thank you Kyle, Through your videos I have realised I have over 18 years experience in working africanised bees and honey extraction and purification process, and choosing good honey... so my new niche is Bee honey...
I need the community direct me which best words I should use to direct sales on amazon... As well direct me if am wrong!!! Thnks

AJTrimble1 Premium
I would recommend that you don't just focus on "bee honey" as that is more of a product (albeit a delicious one!) In other words, there's only so much you can say about it. Think bigger.

Instead, share your 18 years of experience. By talking not just about honey, but about how one gets started, how to work with different bees, the types of equipment needed, various extraction techniques, and how the purification process works, safety tips, and so on, you could have enough material to write for years to come.

In other words, don't limit yourself to just a honey "store" when you could ultimately brand yourself as the expert: "Mr. Bee" :-)

Don't worry, you can organize all of your menus in any way that you like through custom menus.

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

I’ve decided! My niche shall be anime merchandise! The world should know more about the greatness of anime!

Leaving that aside, how does one go about getting traffic for their domain/website without actually having any products set up yet? Do you just advertise? I know I’m probably asking this right before the answer will be given to me within the next lesson or something. So one has to have enough traffic within their domain before a company will do business with them...I am wondering how one creates traffic without having any product on sale?

After watching this video, I have 2 immediate questions.

1.) Does it cost money just to create and/or maintain a website one would be using as an affiliate?

2.) Are there certain criteria one has to fulfill before one can become an affiliate for any company? I can’t imagine companies would willingly allow every single website that approaches them to promote their products, am I correct? If so, then what is the process and what are the criteria? I can also imagine different companies having different requirements so simply telling me what you’ve faced should suffice.

You should purchase are domain name as soon as you can which typically is less than $15 a year. That is your only cost because as a premium member you can host here. Different networks do have different rules regarding affiliate. One thing they all have in common is they will not allow you to become an affiliate until you can prove you have real traffic human traffic to your website. In fact there is no point in monetising a website until you have human traffic

1)

You can start with a free website here on WA. It'll be a Siterubix website and not a .com or something like that. But it's free. So you could start out without paying anything.

Otherwise you'll pay $10-$15 a year, depending on the extension you chose (.com is a bit more expensive than a.nl for instance).

2)

Different companies have different criteria. Some look at the numbers/traffic, some at the quality of your content. I joined the affiliate network ShareASale and found over a dozen merchants that I applied to. I got turned down by only 2. At that time I only had 5 blog posts on my website and just about the same number of visitors a month.

If you write good quality content about a clear, defined niche and you find the right companies/merchants to match your content and niche, that's when you shouldn't have a problem being accepted.

Amazon accepts everyone for the first 180 days. But if you don't make 3 sales in those 180 days, you lose your affiliate account. So it's best to wait applying to Amazon until you've got traffic to your site and to your social media accounts.

Wealthy Affiliate can work for anyone but does not work for everyone because everyone applies what is learned differently and not all have the staying power to wait 6 months to a year for serious results. They try to rush and pray for 30 to 60 day miracles that only occasionally happen.

Hey everyone!

I think I have the "About me" content just about finished. Between the "Vision" and the "Goals" sections of the template, I feel like they are pretty much the same for my website.
I just thought I would leave it here for any suggestions.

As always, I love to hear feedback from the community here at WA.

Hello everyone and welcome to my website!
Here you will ultimately find me just having a blast with my Labrador Retriever (Toby) and I would like to share some training tips that I have learned.
My Story
My name is Mary and I guess you could say that I am a Labrador Retriever enthusiast! My love for the breed all started in my early teens when my stepmother and I visited a local Humane Society and adopted my first Labrador.

I was really excited and waited anxiously until the day they called and announced he was ready for his new home. Cisco was a year old when I first met him at the Humane Society and he quickly became my best friend.

At that time, I helped to train him on basic obedience, some grooming (bathing & brushing, my stepmom knew how to clip his claws).

I took him for hikes, walks everywhere, played fetch, swam with him, and ran with him in the yard.

He never seemed to tire out or get bored and he loved to play with kids.

Cisco passed away at a healthy age of 16 in my father's home in 2013 and the thing I've missed about him was the love and happiness you could clearly see in his eyes and his "ride or die" companionship.

In 2018, I found Toby online while I was in de-mobilization status coming off of deployment. I'll never forget the day...

Today, Toby is 11 months old and I've worked on his obedience and training on my own. Some things work and some things don't, but I've enjoyed working with him just the same. Don't get me wrong, I do seek out tips and advice with training whenever I get stuck or it seems that some methods of approach aren't working.

I stay at home full time and I'm currently pursuing my BA in Logistics and Supply Management. Having the opportunity to attend online college courses allows me to spend more time with my best friend and ensures that he's never lonely either.
My Vision
I'm creating this website really as a visual project or video journal of my training sessions with Toby and to capture those moments of behaviour that I may seem to miss. I'm sure that I'm not the only dog owner out there that enjoys learning everything about her pet.
My vision is to help other dog owners passively train their dog "DIY" style. I've taken on this approach because I strongly believe that the #1 way to bond with your new dog is not only through playtime, but one-on-one training sessions and obedience. By taking this approach on myself, I've found the best results of Toby and I having a mutual respect for each other and he's quickly taken on looking to me for guidance as he explores and discovers new things around him everyday.

Hi everyone. When I was on this training and Kyle explained how to enable Keywords, his video shows a keyword box that opened up and he put in a few keywords. I know he said it's not too important to getting ranked (like it used to be), no box opened up on my screen when I clicked enable. Will that cause a problem now or in the future??? Thanks.

Hi as n new free member or premium member is it possible to create a domain out with siteRubix and attach it to my website? The reason for asking is I am not sure if for any reason I decided to unsubscribe(which at this point I doubt is unlikely) I would like to know if I would be the owner of the domain? I have had advice to keep my domain and hosting separate.
Reply
siamjerry Premium
If it is not likely you will unsubscribe, follow the lessons and within short WA will ask you to register your own domain. At WA there is no need to keep hosting and domain separate. In fact I don't see why that could happen anyway.

feigner Premium
Hi Steve, welcome to wa.
when you become a premium member you get hosting here for up to 25 domains you buy and you get 25 siterubix sites.
as a free member you get two free siterubix sites.
if you host your domain here then if you leave you just trnsfer your domain to another host, no problems.
i think the advice comes from where the industry standard is that if you buy a domain from somewhere you get ripped off with hosting costs. this is not the case here - $14 for a domain and if you take the black friday yearly costs, about $25 per month.
the hosting is locked down pretty solid - nothing gets in, but then you need to ask for things to talk out. but support here is pretty quick and open all day.
but there is no problem hosting your domain here and building your site out, and if you decide to move on , no problems.
if you start with a siterubi, you can easily transfer your work to a domain you buy , if it is hosted here. a couple of clicks and it is done.
good luck with your decision and getting out of the rat race.

There are 2 main criteria when choosing a niche.
1. Is there a hungry crowd - in other words, do a lot of people want to buy what you are recommending
2. Can you write about the topic several times a week for months to come

If the answer is yes to both then it is worth trying out.

Hi everyone!
Ok so I have a really good feeling about my niche. It's based off of passively training my Labrador Retriever I already have a good idea about what my content is going to entail on my website (Me training my dog and promoting the products, including books I've used in his training).

My vision for my site is to help people passively train their dog without having to pay thousands of dollars for professional trainers or board & train where you send your pup or dog away for someone else to train for a duration of time. I know that the number one way to bond with a new puppy is not only through playing but "DIY" training. I have learned a lot with this approach and my dog and I have a mutual respect for each other.

I've done some due diligence and it looks like my competition would be professional behaviorist's and professional trainer's websites that offer some free tips. Most of them however, don't suggest where to look for good training aids. I have a robust list of specific and good quality products that I've found to work for my high energy lab. I've also made a list of affiliate programs surrounding those products, not just Amazon.com.

Also, for my home description should I mention there that I am not a professional behaviorist/trainer, just an ordinary proud lab owner and this is what I've learned through my experience in training my dog? Disclaimer?

I would love to hear feedback from the community.
What are your thoughts?

Lol,
I love Jacks. Maddie was great...If you were sitting down watching TV, that's what she was doing but, if you were getting all excited and what not, she's be bouncing all over.

Here's an image of her and Jake (Jake is still with us). There's also a picture of Lucy. Although not really, we tell people she's a rescue and show them this picture, LOL.
Reply
Mandy94112 Premium
Hahaha! That's absolutely true. Jacks seem to enjoy being a "lap dog". I still have to go some more research on the breed. There's a few factors I know that I'm facing when training. Mason's a senior dog and Toby is a youth, both are male which contributes to dominance, and Toby isn't fixed yet. I'm not planning on fixing him until he fully develops hormonally, typically by 2yrs. Mason has had some house breaking training but done in a different manner than what I'm teaching Toby.
Mason still likes to compete with Toby for attention and treats. I'm trying to work with him currently with trying to take over Toby's food bowl. They both get fed separately but Mason still manages to sneak past me if I'm not watching to snag seconds. Toby only seems to mind sometimes (when he's hungry), otherwise he just sits by him and stares. Lol

Dear Wealthy Affiliate, you mentioned in the video that you don’t recommend creating your own niche and also being an affiliate marketer for WA at the same time. My questions is when is a good time to do both? Is there any benifit to doing both and are there any advanced members here on Wealthy Affiliate that have their own niches and are now marketing through the WA affiliate program

Hi - this is really applicable when you are in the training stage. It is very in-depth, and it's not recommended that you follow the OEC training (which is for individual niches), and the BootCamp training (which is for WA promotion) at the same time. Decide which one to start with and get your website up and running as a first step.
Reply
I agree that is the best course of action. Thank you so much for this information
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
Yes, there are those of us that are doing both. Unless you already have a large following and can get by on name recognition, so-called "mixed" sites typically don't work very well. Generally, you want to keep them separate -- with one exception I'll explain in a minute.

Put yourself in your reader's shoes. They do a Google search for, say, bass fishing. They come to your site because you are BassFishingDotCom. But as soon as they arrive, they see that half the articles there are about WA and/or making money online in general. What is their likely response? Experience has taught us that they will likely bounce because that is not what they came there for. Will you find the occasional person that is interested? Sure. But most will not. They are not your target audience.

So, instead, if you have a niche site, do as Blake suggested. Create a single page, have a small WA banner in your sidebar, or stick a subtle link in your footer. This will give you something unobtrusive for that handful that might be interested without alienating your regular audience, yet still allows you to really provide what your readers are looking for.

If you do decide you would like to do more, and really promote WA to the fullest, then create a separate website for that so you can attract the specific audience for people interested in online affiliate marketing.

Make sense?

Makes perfect sense! Thank you AJ for this insightful breakdown! This clears things up so much! I will focus on my niche for now until I am ready!

I recently joined a multi level marketing business and would want to sell their products off the website I build.

The key when building a business online (or offline) is building a focused audience and brand through helping people within a certain niche. It is very difficult to make a product/service your niche and that is the reason people that are within MLM don't actually have a business, they are reliant on the MLM itself versus their own brand/foundation.

You are going to learn how to properly build a business online here at WA in any niche. Within that respective niche, you are going to be able to promote many different products (PRODUCT included). This will position you for much longer term success and a great deal of long term sustainability with your business.

If you can help people, you can create a long term business doing so.

I have a question.. I signed up for Wealthy Affiliate under a specific email that I use to keep my work at home emails organized, however I would prefer to have the email associated with my new web page to be specific to the website. If I edit that email on the website, does it also update the email associated with my WA account?

no they are two separate things. imagine what would happen when you add a second site....
if you want to change your email within your wa account - clik on your image at the top left and then on account settings.
you will now go to a page where you can edit your account settings.
I haven't changed mine - but clicknig the edit button gives you the option to change your email address.

Also, the domains I purchase - can they be used for any kind of website, or must they be for affiliate marketing purposes only? For example, if I already have a business that needs a website, can I use one from a domain I purchase here? Maybe I would add links as an affiliate, maybe not. Or what if I want to build an online store for a drop-ship business? Can the two be mixed? Affiliate marketing within my own online store website?

To answer your first question The chances to make money is high but only for the individuals that treat this as a business. It's the internet so money is out there

But it depends on the work you put in if it's dedicated valuable work then 6 mos to a year i would say a person can attain full time wages and more

To answer your 2nd question Yes your site is yours to do what you like within rules and guidelines of the internet. I have a site for my business and then i am working on an affiliate site

Wealthy Affiliate is a training platform to guide us in success with the perks of hosting, security, support, and much more

Hope that made sense

You purchase a domain name for what you need it. If you want to do a niche site, do affiliate marketing and direct sales that is ok.
Here you learn more about affiliate marketing than building an online store but I think everything is covered.
Most important for a website to get traffic is that you understand SEO and niche research and building content.

My question was regarding real statistics. I'd like to know how many people make a successful business this way, percentage-wise and approximately how long it takes to start making decent money. I'm not looking for get rich quick examples, I'd like a realistic idea of how much time vs return on investment, on average.

Hi, I think this is hard to say, most, I think about 90% never make any money with their website but this is due to that they stop trying before it works.
To learn affiliate marketing, website business SEO and making sales takes time like any profession.
Everyone that keeps at it will finally make money. How much again depends a lot on the effort made, the niche and the system they use.

I love what Jerry Huang has to say about motivation. Most of us newbies are here with the mindset of "get rich quick." I have realized after many attempts that the only get rich people are those that offer the product rather than the service.
I am looking through comments so will post more observations and questions as I thread through this weave.

I don't think there is ever really a "get rich quick" idea without the work to go along with it. Even if the idea is spectacular, it still takes work to get that idea rolling along. This is just my humble opinion, I could be absolutely wrong lol

Hey all,
So while watching this training video and reading over the information about niche, I was thinking about my dog the whole time. I found my Lab online while I was in de mobilization status in TX, I spent two days at home in CA before driving out to MO to pick him up from the breeder. Since I've had him, I've researched on all the puppy training that I possibly could. The cost of a dog trainer is e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e and not only that, training is #1 bonding with your dog. I didn't want to pay thousands of dollars for someone else to bond with MY dog! So I was thinking about creating a website around training your own puppy and share all the information that I've learned, promote the training products that I've used (treat bag, eCollar, dummy duck etc...) as well as books on puppy/dog training, and what my pup has taught me along the way.


Does this sound like a good niche? What are your thoughts?

Dog training could work, maybe do some research on the ease of ranking keywords in Google, check out the competition already out there.

Thanks for the reply and insight. Do you mean keyword research? Keywords that users would enter into the search engine (Google, Bing...) then websites come up with closest match. Maybe I haven't got to that part of the training. I'm sure there's something up ahead that explains keywords and ranking.

Thank you for the feedback everyone! I love this! I've paused the first video on creating your first website. Now it looks like I'll be brainstorming ideas for a domain name, website name/title.
Something along the lines of DIY Black Lab puppy/dog training. My Lab will be 1 year old at the end of May and his name is Toby. lol. The vision that I have for the site is that I will explain all of the steps that I have learned and found that worked well in learning to train my dog without having to spend thousands of dollars on dog trainers and boarding schools. I'l display my own photos and videos of me and Toby doing the training and I'll promote the products and books that I've used all along the way.

Okay, so my question is a simple one. As my WA profile says I'm a curious person and with that comes along alot more failures than success however I'm also a family man and need to be able to provide for my family's needs as well so what happens if I need more time to determine if this helps or is just (sorry for the phrase) a waste of time or not a very good investment? I mean some people are on a tight budget and may need more than just a few days to upgrade if choose to.Again sorry for the phrase.

Hi - you can stay as a starter member for as long as you wish. You can work on your 2 free websites. However, you are limited to the first 10 lessons, which can make it more challenging.

If you choose to upgrade within the first 7 days, it is offered at a discount of only $19. The monthly price after that is $49, although it is considerably cheaper to pay yearly.

You can cancel at any time, but there are no refunds.

Please be aware that this is not a get rich quick scheme, and takes time, effort and patience. Please have a look at the attached link below.

As a comment on the above post, I guess many of us struggled when we first tried to get set up. When I set up my first wordpress site it took me 3 days just to sort out the database and integrate it into the wordpress installation.

Then later I discovered there was a button within the control panel of the server that would do it all automatically. I won't mention some of the words that came out of my mouth.

However, I am still at it and now I can have a wordpress site up and running with a header image that I have created and at least one post in about half an hour.

Practice makes perfect. Lifelong learning is the key though.

Jammy,

I can totally relate to situations like this. Starting off on something can seem like you're moving at a snails pace. But then after you've gone through it (at least once), and you learn something new, doesn't it seem like the work comes a lot FASTER after that?

I like being able to reflect back to being new at something and laugh.


Thank you for this post for it is keeping me inspired and something to keep in mind for future learning experiences. ;)

Will W.A. help me to build an email list from the traffic that I will generate? There is a saying, that I'm sure you must have heard, "the money is in the list", which I guess is true as it was through an email that I found the W.A. programme.

Yes (and no). You will certainly learn how to set it up and build a list. And you can always have sign-ups going to your site email, which is available here. However, if you are wanting to do some form of autoresponder series, you will need to use an outside source such as Mailchimp, Aweber, etc.

Hello, From what I understand at the Cash Flow area, that says it will be replenished my X,Yand Z and used for site comments, site Facebook, and site domains. That Cash Flow credit will only be used for that and cannot be withdrawal? What if a High Rank person has a lot of referrals and have a lot of Cash Flow credit and most is used for the site comments, site Facebook, and site domains and still have a lot of more Cash Flow credit and can't withdrawal his earnings? Thank you. Hope I make sense

Yes, as soon as you publish thats it live on the net.

I personally type everything in Word and save it.
This way I can go over it as many times as I want to.
I can also use the spellinh and grammar check and even put in my H Tags and links.

When I'm 100% happy with it then I simply copy/paste it into a blank page in Wordpress.

Works for me Neil so maybe you should try it.

Hello from Nottingham! Yes, it will be live but if your site hasn't been indexed, then Google hasn't seen it yet, so nobody else will be able to. Realistically, it will be a while before you get any visitors. Once you have published it, if you wish to make more changes, the editing is done through WordPress.

Hi Guys, I am just getting started with your program and just got done listening to your second video "choose your Niche" I am very interested in the dog niche. I just got certified as a "Raw Dog Food" specialist and now I am in the process to find out how many people are interested in finding out how they can give their dogs a better life through better nutrition in feeding vs. what is available in the market as traditional pet food nutrition . My husband is very interested in the CBD niche and we would like to get a little feedback on the CBD products as it relates to a niche as far as marketing on line goes. Hemp just got legalized with the government to be able to now grow and process industrial hemp to convert to the different CBD products like oils, creams, pet products etc. We feel that the CBD market is just at the beginning with lots of future potential. Is it possible to market hemp and CBD products online and if so, what part of social media marketing would you implement to market CBD products? We are to understand that most online marketing companies like google, facebook, amazon, ebay, etc. will not let you market CBD products including payment systems like paypal will not let you accept payments for these products.
How do you feel about this market in the present time, is it doable? Looking forward to getting set up and making money!! Thank you . Jutta
Reply
Jaz333 Premium
I am not certain on the legal aspects of CBD products but as far as a niche I think it's a great idea. Working as an affiliate marketer guiding customers to other's products may mean you won't have to worry about the payment end of it since you'll just be earning the commission by sending customers to others. If you wanted to design and market your own product down the line, you then would need to answer those questions but as far as affiliate marketing I think that is a very doable niche.
Thanks, Shannon

The video really shows how its important to start thinking about a niche. For instance I like becoming an affiliate with Amazon.

When at the same time I'm wondering how becoming an affiliate with WA would affect my desirable income in the future. What % could be expected from the affiliate program.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You will be able to become an affiliate of many different programs, amazon being one of them.

This doesn't have much to do with your niche, as within any niche there are going to be 1,000's of products/services that you can promote across a myriad of affiliate programs.

The commission % range from program to program, some 2%, some up to 75%. It just depends on the program.

Hi, small question. When searching for keywords on Jaxxy through WA (the Research button) or on the Jaxxy's official website, it wouldn't show me the QSRs automatically unless I click "Get QSR" which is displayed directly under KQI. So I would have to click on each row one by one (Get QSR Button) in order for it to pop up. Not sure if this sounds familiar, but is there a way for all of them to pop up automatically as shown in the training? Thank you

In the training, Kyle uses the Elite or Pro version of Jaaxy (which is a paid for version, you can always level up if you choose to). On the free version, we do need to click for each one.

Well if you are looking to create and grow a business the PROPER way online, you are in the right place.

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Jason. :)

Good to be back, after several months and continuing to work on my training. Just completed the "Keyword Mastery" class and it was fun watching the video tutorial and completing the exercises,. I did do about 7 searches choosing words that are related to my niche. Couldn't find a lot though that met the keyword criteria. Is that normal depending on my niche?
Reply
NickL88 Premium
Sometimes you just have to keep trying different combinations and phrases until you find keywords that meet the criteria. Remember the goal initially is to find keywords that are not competitive so that you can rank quickly and start to gain authority.

Then once you've done that, you can start to target the higher competition keywords.

Hello,
I chose the beauty studio page theme for my page. On the dashboard there is a message that says this page recommends the ACME demo set up. It has the option to instal the plugin as well. I'm not quite sure what this is referring to. Is it necessary to install this plugin for this page theme? ( Yes I know it says to install but I don't want to be just installing things not really knowing what it is!).

THX!

This is only necessary if you want the demo content (i.e. you want their pages, posts and images) on your site. Some people do so they start out with what they saw in the demo. Others prefer to start from scratch.

Hi Thank you for the lesson 10 lessons of OEC. Looks like the peak is still far up..am just climbing the foothills. Anyway will plod on to boot camp and join premium in a day or two. after that do we get the discount if we pay out subscription three months or six months in advance? And how soon can we get to promote for starter WA or at which level?

Hello,
Yes, there's a lot to learn (you never really stop). You can go to a 6 month or annual plan. The longer the commitment the bigger the discount.

As for promoting...are you asking about promoting WA itself? You can do that now. Click on the $ coin icon up top and select Program Details for more info.

You can promote WA now even if you are not a premium member. WA affiliate program is available to both premium anf free members. The only difference is the amount of money you earn for each referral.

Click the $ sign and then click Links & Tracking. There you will find your affiliate links.

Ok, so I don't like trickery, but the video shows that the basic keyword search is available to starters and premium members, and according to the video (approx 4:20) it shows the QSR as being shown to beginning members, but then when you go and use it, there's no QSR listed, making the list ineffectual in regards to the instruction. Then when I went in and typed a keyword and looked at the results, when I hit the bottom to view the list, it charged me for another hit on the list. This is not straight forward. If you're going to give a taste of the actual product, you can't do so without actually giving access to the information. So, it's basically useless unless you pay a fee.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
Whoa... slow down. You have access, so no point in getting upset until you have the facts.

Kyle is using the Enterprise version of Jaaxy in the video. It does everything automatically. When you are doing as much keyword research as him, you will likely need it to. However, it is a paid service and you don't need that at this level.

Included with your membership is the Lite version. You have to do everything manually, but it is still all there. Find the keyword you are interested in and scroll over to the QSR column. Click on the link that says "Get QSR" and it will pull the number for that keyword.

AJ, we just spoke under the other medium. I didn't see your comment down here. Is there any way to recover the first inquiry I did in which I didn't realize that these options were available and just "x"'d out of it? Or is that lost forever?

Perhaps you misunderstood, but the lite version of Jaaxy requires you to actually click on the blue highlighted Get QSR link of the keywords you want the numbers to. Many people have made this mistake, but Jaaxy works perfectly and there's no trickery or any fee's with the lite version.
Reply
WoodyTNES Premium
Yes, I understand the process now. Thank you. But I did my first search and thought I did something wrong because of the missing information, so I x'd out of that one and did a new one, to which by instruction by others and yourself, was able to click on the proper link to uncover the information. My question pertains to the first search I did. Is that saved that I can go back and view the information, or is that lost forever since I x'd out of it?

I have a question about WordPress headings. When I first write my article, I write it using SiteContent, and there I have 4-6 headings.

When I publish the article and want to edit it, I notice that WordPress Content Structure is showing 0 headings.

Why is this happening and should I do something about that ?

Hey Nat, Don't be to concerned ok. If you use 'templates" within "wordpress". and write within that platform, then it will give you basic guidelines to follow within your content structure.
hope that helps you.

Not sure why that is but you can login into your WP Admin area from Site Manager and edit your headings there.

The other option is just write directly in the back end of your site instead of using Site Content. I always use my site instead of Site Content.

The advantage of site content is the goal setting and free image search, but you can still search those images out in Site Content and then download to your PC or laptop first then upload to your site via "Add Media" button while you're in edit mode of your posts.

I hope this helps a bit,

In the very first page I stumbled on, you shared the hard, cold truth that most fail at making money with internet business. Do you have a success rate percentage for your program? Also, if I steadily work through this training and apply it to build websites, is there an average length of time I can expect to start earning good money? Any ratios you can share on time/money investment to earnings would be helpful. I do understand it takes time and work. Thanks!

That question is a tough one because everyone works at a different pace and they all have different websites. Once committed here and you complete all of the training you can start seeing decent traffic in under 6 months. The money would depend on the products and how effective your content might be. 12% Upgrade here at WA, not sure on total platform success because there's people that have been here over ten years and WA has 1.5 million. This platform will teach you the process and how to succeed if you're premium.

YouTube is definitely a worthy investment (if you are aiming at that). Here at WA main focus is writing, but we are encouraged to make videos also, so I think you could fit well.

Why not make a video and then write it down what you were talking? I think that would be a good way to create your talking to text and make your articles :)

Wow, that ended quite abruptly. From the posts I found of WA while job searching, I was under the impression that everything needed to get your business up and working was included in free membership. Not just the fundamentals of getting the website up. While I truly believe in this program, with a small monthly SSI disability income I just can't afford $49 a month. Maybe in the future. I wish everyone luck on their journey. I hope one day I'll be able to return.

Don't give up, as Dalibor said you have the core knowledge to keep building out your site. You can write blog posts using keywords and just keep adding to your site until you can afford to go Premium.

I can understand your frustration which relates to your condition and truely sorry to hear that.

Although I am new not only to this community but also to the whole internet money making scheme all I can understand nothing is free and easy in this world - but with WA they will guide you every step of the way in making it happen (that is your internet store and ideas to be successful in online making money). Of course, beyond that is up to the person him/herself what they want to do with their website.

Trust me, I have gone through so many things in my past in order to be successful of what I was doing at the time, however, it never happens until I found this site where I starting to believe that I might have found the light of my life in it through WA as they slowly proving themselves on what they have promised after been following their recommendation - ie. support.

All I can say is hang in there and try working out what people’s need when they shop online. Easiest way to find out is by communicate to your surrounding if they do online shopping and what do they buy. Then, from there you decide what you want do sells your website while you putting out your very own personalised website to suit then grow from there.

Like I said, I am still new but this is what I will do for myself and believe nothing is better than knowing the needs of your own people that live around you as a whole,

I hope this help and wish you all the very best on your journey whichever side you going to choose.

Cheers,
Rueby.

Hi everyone! Question: I am not sure whether to target my business worldwide. My niche is upcoming in the Netherlands, although money earning wise (availability of affiliate programs) is more limited plus of course in comparison a relatively narrow target audience. Certainly insecure about my writing skills in English, thinking I will be unable to create quality content in a non-native language.

Any advice? Would love to target the Dutch audience. However is it wise to start with, during this learning phase (support/feedback/chance of succes-wise)?
Would love to hear your thoughts😊
Reply
Zasibel Premium
I would say that it would be a good idea to try your native language first in the learning phase. You can then get more comfortable about how the online world works etc. You can always build on to that specific niche and broaden it later on. As for the affiliate programs, it does not matter if for example i'ts based in US. I mean, when I look at Amazon, its US, but I know many South Africans who also purchase from them online. So you could still have customers purchasing from your site even if you are in a different country. Hope I make sense. This is just my personal opinion though. Let's see what others think as well 😊 All the best!
Reply
Otrera Premium
Thanks so much for your advice. It will be a little more easy to start in my native language. Actually, Amazon doesn't ship to the Netherlands (or with ridiculous high shipping cost).

I accomplished everything I set out to do in this leg of the journey & I was ready. The value of my WA membership was immediately demonstrated in how I gained valuable knowledge & skills DURING the time I spent within this community as a free, starter member. I just upgraded today & I'm motivated for what comes next. Onward!

I sure would love to make $10,000 monthly if possibly that could be done here! I do understand the lesson on how to make money with affiliate status and websites, so maybe!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. We’re happy to meet you, SherAnne.

Just follow the training program step-by-step and I think you will find the success you're looking for.

Try not to move on to the next lesson until you have completed all the recommended tasks and checked them off the checklist. This is important because later lessons are often built on the foundation work you did previously.

If you have any questions or need anything, please don't hesitate to ask. We're all here to help :-)

What is that you write SherAnne? Is it just poetry? Have you ever been published? There is very good market for good copywriters on the internet.

I have come across affiliate marketing more times than I can count through the last 20 or so years but I never really understood how lucrative it can really be until I found WA. I can see now that there is literally no way to fail unless you just plain do nothing! I'm really excited to get going! Thanks WA and everyone here :)

So what were you 20 years or so ago, 4 or 5? I totally agree with you. The only way this program won't work is if you don't put the work in. I'm pretty excited about getting going myself.

Hi Kyle
Finally set up my website with the post and policy page.
When I open my website I have 2 pages of the Policy Page. I missed out initially on the NOindex and Nofollow tag. So went to edit that Page and after publishing saw 2 pages . Can this be corrected please?

Yes. The WordPress platform comes with a default policy page. So, just take a look at both of them and see which one you wrote and which one is the generic page that came with it and delete it.

I've had that happen myself. I think some themes may be including a policy page automatically.

Log into your websites wordpress dashboard. Go to pages tab. Simply delete the one that you do not want.

If you have all-in-one SEO installed, edit the page that you want to change to noindex, no follow.

Best wishes.
