Awesome video walkthrough - thanks
Can we make up templates and include an image holder where images can be inserted?
I want uniformity in my website and have a lot of my own personal photos that need to be added. It would be helpful if I could have an image placement within the template

Hey guys, little help please. Has anyone encountered a bug where your article in site content is not showing up? I'm getting a blank page when I go to open one particular article, although I have saved it with over one thousand words written. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Did you for sure write it on site content? I know sometimes I would have written it directly in WordPress. If you did that, then it will not show up on site content.

I'd consider closing and reopening your browser and seeing if that helps...maybe try another...if it's still missing I'd reach out to Site Support and see if they can help.

oh my! I can't believe I haven't tried that yet... it opens in internet explorer but not in chrome, it's the only article that does that for some reason... strange.

I have a question about the difference between a post and a page . I know what page is--in a newspaper, a book, etc. but can't quite visualize what a web page is. Right now I have 4 of those necessary privacy, etc. posts on my website, an article about me, and 3 full size articles. And I'm going to be writing more and more ,with different layouts and pictures. I need to organize.

So, How?

RobSciubba Premium
Barbara, your posts are your articles that you"post" and can be read and commented on on your blog roll. Your pages are in your header and do not get comments on.
Your 4 (privacy) are pages and your 3 articles are the posts.
Hope this helps!

This can do a better job than I can in explaining it. Maybe you haven't gotten this far in the training? As someone who likes to tinker, I would routinely get ahead of the training. Good luck!
Reply
Foobard Premium
I realized my first reply probably doesn't help. Go to Posts, Add New, and write your post. You can then link it to the Menu later. After the post is created, go back and edit your menu, you will see them magically in there on the left of the screen. Just check the box next to the page, and click add to menu. Once you do that, you can drag the items around the way you want.. Hope that helps.
Don't forget to "Save Menu" when you are done.

After doing seven posts to my website, I started creating my content in Word and then pasting to the post in Wordpress. I see down below there are others that do that. It is just much easier for the way I write. Also, my posts have lots of videos and images and I do not want to publish without those in the post and then have to add them later. I see there is a way to add the images in Site Content from others down below that I didn't notice before.

I have two questions:

Does the amount of content stored in the WA Site Content section have any effect on my WA ranking? I have noticed that moving up is impossible even though I am publishing 2-4 posts per week. I had thought that publishing was part of the score.

In not using Site Content to publish my post I lose out on getting it checked for being correct with google. Can I get that done through using the wordpress direct publishing somehow?

Thanks.

SAWalden Premium
I'm too new here to fully understand the rankings thing so I'm not sure the exact effect the amount of content stored in Site Content has on your ranking although, I'm sure it is factored into the algorithm.

I've written both ways - in Word then copy/paste into the WordPress editor or the Site Content and I prefer Site Content. Your post will show up in both places, but unlike the WordPress editor, in addition to checking off all the little boxes before publishing and (this may just be me) it seems my pages are indexed quicker when I go the Site Content route.

I hope I at least partially answered your question!

I am concerned about indexing. Many of my pages are not, from what I can tell. Also at fetch google in the search console I have 6 that indicate indexing requested and 18 where they indicate redirected, which seems they are not allowing the function to process.

I fear I have wasted a hell of a lot of time writing content incorrectly somehow.

Hi Joe,

Search engines do not see content stored in site content, the search engines only sees the material that you have published to your website.

If you click on the blue rank number it will take you to the ranking system and explain everything on how to improve your WA ranking.

It appears you are mixing the WA ranking system with the search engines ranking systems, which are two completely different systems . Your WA ranking is directly associated to your activity level on the WA platform and has no relevancy to the search engines ranking system not does the WA ranking have anything to do with potential money earnings.

However, the important ranking system to be concerned about is that of the search engines, that ranking can make a large difference in the amount of natural traffic your website receives on daily basis, and this improves you chances of making money.

Yes content matter to the search engine rankings not only the amount but the content as well your post as a new website should be over 1,500 words of quality keyword relevant material, to help improve the odds of getting ranked easier.

Go to copyscape.com and put in the link of the page/post you are wanting to check and it will tell you everything that is duplicated, then it is a matter of just rewording that content and you are worry free of plagiarism or copyright infringement.

I hope this answers your questions,

Calvin

Thanks for the copyscape site and the rest of your response.

Before your response I already realized that the my rank at WA has nothing to do with ranking at the search engines. So my ranking at WA is a separate issue. Within the 3 categories for rank at WA is creator rank. Mine has been going down while my creativity of site content through wordpress has been escalating at an ever increasing pace. Unfortunately it is not logged into the Site Content of WA. Therefore, my guess is that I do not get credit for all my posts as a creator at WA. Or the question can be, does creation of content anywhere, at wordpress or at Site Content on WA, have any effect on WA rank? What goes into my "Creator" ranking?

Why should I care about rank at WA? Maybe I should forget about it, particularly if I don't even have a clear idea whether or not what I am doing has any effect on my rank.

If anyone can clarify how I get the "Creator" part of my ranking, I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

For the WA ranking as a creator you have to publish WA interne posts or training, also questions count. Not questions here but real post like questions you ask when opening the "need help" bar above and don't find a satisfying answer :)

Writing content can will never be a waste of time unless.... You are just putting shady content out there.
I am still fairly new to WA and I have never really thought to create my content anywhere else besides WA or WP... I Have more than half of my content posted between multiple sites. This doesn't make me a pro or anything since they aren't ranked super high or anythings but...
I have noticed that most of my content is published as a POST rather than a PAGE... I have no clue if this makes a difference but I actually just realized this today...

Also I realized that a few "POSTS" from well over a week ago just got indexed...
Give it time my friends, and if all else fails... Keep writing more content!
Change up your keywords...

I guess the most important thing is at least one of your post gets to first page. once people can find your website easily, the non indexed posts can be additional reads for visitors who is looking for this niche. So, your effort is not completely wasted. It is a hit or miss to get into the first page. correct me if I am wrong.

Good stuff Kyle,

as off feedback there is not really a need to point out the “star” points of your presentation skill, as it is obviously well polished gem, but I will give You a critical points, where I am annoyingly picking on the smallest structural weakness one would normally not even think off (as your natural way off laying stuff out is easily “digestible”).

I think that once You finish this sharp version of tutorial, You may want to give it a second rum, where You try to eliminate all the unnecessary descriptive/or repeating “obvious factual information” - e.g. geeting stuck for a minut on explaning the function of sorting button, etc.
Commonly, as the one goes by mind free-flow, we tend to give ourselves spaces in our speech, where we just give ourselves a break to think for a second about the content we speak of next - but in the end it may be a bit lengthy for the learning individual...

I think if You re-run Your sharp presentation second time aiming to eliminate unnecessary “sauce” spots; You may cut it in (time-wise) by 30-50%, what is very attractive for a viewer, as the tuition proceeds at good speed... But thats just my view as I like to learn quite quick.

I know You know this, but just for others who might not know the true preperty of criticism...
Critism is the most valuable thing/FB we can get out of any situation. We do not learn anything from praise - as it counter-effectively can put us even off guard and a bit delusional- but in critism we can find the answers and values we have been lacking in our “whole puzzle” of the business and main goal of our growth.

With love,

Dom

One thing you have to understand about teaching, Dom, is you don't target the students that are quick to understand and assimilate information - you target the ones that may have a bit of trouble understanding the concepts you are covering.

With that in mind, when Kyle includes “obvious factual information”, it is really only “obvious factual information” to folks like you - who, probably, are "quick to understand."

But, there are all kinds of folks in our WA family: from PhDs to folks still in high school - folks from all over the world and from different backgrounds.

Kyle is correct in being very detailed - in order to educate everyone - not just the top achievers.

If the there is too much redundant information for you, it is very easy to fast forward - a minute or so at a time - and go to sections that pique your interest and keep you from being bored with information you may already understand.

Hi Cathy- for every site you have you must go into the content creator and open the privacy document, then change what you need to change and publish to your new site. You must do this as if it is new for every site you have

I've not built with Wordpress, but I still use the Site content for images (as they're optimised when inserted), and pasting in my article to check the word count and then saving them as drafts.

The stats say I've written more than 92% of WA members this month with 6 articles written, so either members aren't writing much, or they're not using it, so not sure if that's accurate?

I'd like it to be able to connect to external websites to track my stats and indexing etc, but appreciate that's probably not going to happen without using WP.

Well, Mark, I'm one of those die-hard folks that deal directly with WordPress. That's not saying that SiteContent is not a good tool - it truly is. I just am more comfortable going from a Word document to WordPress and then doing my final tweaking before publishing.

I have an ongoing problem in creating content. Yesterday, for the third time, I was most of the way through writing a post. I clicked Save every few minutes. I had to meet a guy and clicked save again. Then when I opened my computer, the entire post was gone. This is the third post I have lost like that. Very frustrating. Surely, Wealthy Affiliate has a way to retrieve drafts. I just don't know how or where to look. Any advice?

Until you figure it out, Thomas, it may behoove you to write the post in a Word document and then upload it to your WordPress.

I'm not crazy about the stats. I've created 26 posts and 4 pages on my blog but they were created on my blog platform.

Is there any kind of "penalty" for not using SiteContent?

Hi. I have some questions regarding SiteContent. Is saw the video but I may be missing something. 1) Is there an undo button to return something to the way it was before making a change? 2) I will highlight a section of text to change the format to H1 for example and the rest of the document changes to H1 formatting. I'm sure I'm just missing something that probably obvious. Thanks for your help.
Reply
HelenpDoyle Premium
No there isn't an undo key and I would really like one! I see this question a lot so just sent a PM to SiteSupport. Let's wait and see if anything happens.

For the H tags to work, the word or phrase has to be on a line by itself. If you have this and you still get the same problem make sure you have entered after what you want as you H tag. You can do this before you set your tag or afterwards. Afterwards just put the space in and then set the non H stuff back to paragraph.

Scotius2001 Premium
Hello. Sadly, I don’t believe there’s an undo feature in site content. There is a revision feature that allows you to revert to previous saved versions but that isn’t ideal for undoing single mistakes.

Heading formatting is done to entire lines of text. You can’t isolate individual words in a line for header formatting. If you wish to undo header formatting, put the cursor at the beginning of the text and click on the paragraph icon (“P”). That should return text to default format. Good luck!

Thanks for this walkthrough. This seems like an amazing tool with useful features and I've been thinking of using for a while now.

I was wondering if the new writing platform connects in some way with the WordPress platform?

More specifically:
- Are plugins like All-in-one SEO, WP GDPR Compliance, Ad Inserter (to only name those) supported by SiteContent platform?

- Can old content that was written with WP be migrated to SiteContent? Not that it's crucial but I guess it makes it easier to have everything in one place when it's time to refresh some old content.

Thanks so much for any advice. I would gladly make that change if I was sure that my website wouldn't suffer from it.

Hey Carolyn,

Your question: I was wondering if the new writing platform connects in some way with the WordPress platform?

My response: yes it does. Taking it for a test drive might be best. Here's a tutorial on using SiteContent: Your question: Are plugins like All-in-one SEO, WP GDPR Compliance, Ad Inserter (to only name those) supported by SiteContent platform?

My response: You do not need to worry about your website plugins when using SiteContent. Watch tutorial to better understand.

Your question: Can old content that was written with WP be migrated to SiteContent?

My response: why would you want to do that... unless you are speaking about editing or updating your post. In that case, then my answer is "no", as there would be no need for doing that.

Once you have used SiteContent you will better understand the advantages to using that awesome tool.

You can (and SHOULD) backup your website regularly so that you have all of your website content, theme, plugins, settings... EVERYTHING all in one file should you EVER need to restore your website: Hope this helps you.

CarolynCal1 Premium
Hi Trish, Thanks so much for your answer!

My understanding is that any publish content from the platform can be edited afterward using WP. Therefore everything is available from WP. I'm guessing the plugins should not be affected either. I think I will simply try it and see if it works for me.
As you mention I will better understand how I can benefit from it.
Thanks again!
Reply
Triblu Premium
Correct... no plugins should be affected and you can edit your post after they have been published from SiteContent to your website. In fact, it is advisable to ALWAYS check your website post to make sure you images aligned the way you wanted them too and that paragraphs have been spaced the way they should have, etc.

Personally, I have not used SiteContent simply because I have been using WordPress (WP) for a few years now and am quite comfortable using WP. SiteContent helps new writers best with other issues like grammar check and images... you have access to sooooo may free images!

You're very welcome. Always glad to help when and where I can.

Rose, you can't change the URL of a domain once it is created. You can change the title though. In fact in two places. The apparently ruling place is All in One SEO General Settings and the second one is in Appearance, Customise, Site Identity.

When I started I didn't know this so I did mine in Appearances. When we got to the AinO SEO, I forget I had done this and gave it another name. I don't know if this has been a problem but now I can search my site on two titles!

You find your latest SiteContent drafts when you on "website" on the left.
Then you open the post you are talking about and see if it is published yet.
If it's not, click publish again, chose a website, choose an admin and publish.
Then I always click on "edit in WordPress dashboard"
There I set it as a draft again, do some final editing and look at the post on "view post" and when I'm satisfied with all I publish it.

Once you publish it any editing is in WP. You access this either by going back to SiteContent (where you will be forwarded to WP) or straight to WP. When you edit the changes will not go back to SiteContent so don't be surprised if you go back there to reread it.

BrianCh Premium
Hi Sue, do you currently have 2 websites listed when you open SiteManager? If you do then you need to delete the one that you are not going to be working on. There is little point in keeping it since you really want to focus on one website at a time.

Open "Details" to the right of the site that you no longer want and scroll down to the bottom and select "Delete".

All the best,

Brian
Reply

Why you get redirected to the first one every time you try to log in I don't understand. For that, you might want to contact SiteSupport.
I think if you have two websites already there is no need to delete one. You never know if later you want to come back to the first one and by then this one is already ranked and has some credibility for Google.

I just received a duplicate content message on a post I was trying to publish. I think it might be due to the affiliate disclosure that I use in my content. I use the same sentence in my posts. I deleted that disclosure and it published just fine. Then I added the disclosure back to the post in WP

Has anyone noticed this type of situation as well?

Also, if we use a template that has the same section headings does this pose a problem? For instance, if you are reviewing several different mountain bikes, in different posts, and you have a template with 5 or 6 key points, is SC picking this up as duplicate? Just wondering what others are experiencing.

With the disclosure you could do it as a page in a footer widget. Do the noindex - nofollow,as per the privacy policy. Then do a link from your post to that page.

I wouldn't add the disclosure on every review or you'd need to rephrase it every time.

The subtitles I would also try to differentiate a little. Google cannot read and differentiate what is duplicate on your posts but it recognizes them.

I used to put my affiliate disclosure in my review content but, I occasionally forgot to add it in. So, I put it in my sidebar and I don't have to worry about it anymore.

Steve, glad you put this link here. There is so much stuff in WA this is a good way to find what you haven't encountered before.

I agree that it needs to be prominent. Reading the FTC guidelines it appears a short reference sentence, specifically noting disclosure, linked to the widget is fine. It's what I would do.

Stefan,

Here's a quote about affiliate marketing from ftc.gov:

===============================================
"As for where to place a disclosure, the guiding principle is that it has to be clear and conspicuous. The closer it is to your recommendation, the better. Putting disclosures in obscure places – for example, buried on an ABOUT US or GENERAL INFO page, behind a poorly labeled hyperlink or in a “terms of service” agreement – isn’t good enough.

Neither is placing it below your review or below the link to the online retailer so readers would have to keep scrolling after they finish reading. Consumers should be able to notice the disclosure easily. They shouldn’t have to hunt for it."
===============================================

The second paragraph tells me that if you don't have a sidebar to place an affiliate disclosure near the top of any page containing links to product reviews, you should place it in the article prior to any product link. Putting it in the footer is not adequate.

What do you think?

Jim

Zappades Premium
I don't know for sure. I will have to check out some big blog sites how they do it.

Often though I see websites having a link on the footer linking to about us and privacy policy.

Anyway, do websites stand under US law? Actually, they are international territory :)

Just because big blog sites do things a certain way, it doesn't make it the "do all - end all" for being correct. They may be just big enough that nobody messes with them.

I agree that websites are in "international territory." But, if you are in the U.S., that would mean that not only do you have to comply with international law but, ALSO U.S. law.

Whether you are adding a link through SiteContent (here at WA), or through your website back office, the process is fairly straightforward.

You will want to highlight the text that you want to create a link for, then click the "link" icon within the editor. This looks like a chain link. From there you will be able to add your links.

I have attached screenshots of both below.

Cheryl, you are better off asking SiteSupport or sending Kyle a PM. SiteContent saves automatically as you type so no worries there. Do you have a Theme where your posts automatically go into Home in your Menu? Do you have a Main Menu? A Menu is necessary for your Posts or Pages to show up on your website. They will go to your Dashboard under Posts or Pages when saved. From there, you have to direct where they should go. If you don't have a Menu set up, there is training here on that, from Kyle and from other members. Let me know if I can help further.

For different reasons, my typing skills have deteriorated recently. As such. I often use Dragon Naturally Speaking to dictate my writing. My documents are usually saved in MS Word. Am I able to import a Word document into the Site Content platform? Or, am I able to use Dragon within the Site Content platform to dictate my articles?

Sorry to hear about the challenges you have gone through.
I am not sure if you can use Dragon with site-content. But I would suggest you use the first option i.e. get your articles on MS Word and paste it to Site-Content. If you encounter problem, then just paste it directly to wordpress site.

It should be working by pasting it to site-content before publishing it to your wp site.

Hope that helps.

I don't have Dragon Naturally Speaking but I do use the Google Speech to Text program on both my tablet and Android phone to dictate directly into SiteContent so you might find Dragon will work as well.

If you had registered your domain either existing or registered there in WA, better still registered your domain on Site Rubix. Go to Sit Rubix click on site manager all your domain are there, both old and new, click on move on your old domain, a dialogue box, click icon that will show if you had registered on site rubix or existing domain, it will show click on the your existing domain everything will automatically move, from there continuing working on you web site.

I really don't understand how this happened but after publishing the first some posts with pics added to site content my posts started to show a very slow loading time.
Today I tried the same pics that were already added to the wp media selection but added them after publishing to wp the problem didn't occur anymore. The site has a great loading time.

Now, I'm doing the Bootcamp and have created another website, as a sub-domain off of the first one. I'm at the point where I need to do my "About Me" template. How do I know this new About me page is going to my second website and not over-writing the "About Me" on the first website? Is that clear?

Hey Rob,

I'm not sure about your question. You could always go to the site and see where your links take you.

More importantly, I'd encourage you to just work on one site at a time. Wait till you get the first site profitable before working on the second.

This was advise given to me by DomW and it's served me well.

Cheers
Reply
HelenpDoyle Premium
Rob, having not done this myself I am only offering a suggestion. I think if one site is a subdomain of a domain, it is interlinked and not individual. Therefore any article you do will override one of the same name.

Why didn't you just buy a new domain? WA domains are very reasonable in price and this complication most likely wouldn't have occurred.

As I said, my 'opinion' only. Maybe someone else will come up with a better one.
Reply
Foobard Premium
A subdomain is managed just like any other website. You can go into SiteRubix, Site Manager and it will appear in there as a separate website to manage.
In SiteContent when you are writing your About Me, both sites will appear in the drop-down when you go to Publish. Make sure you publish to the right one. It should be fairly obvious because one site will be named something like yoursubdomain.yourdomain.com and the other site in the list will be yourdomain.com.

That said, I don't recommend you doing the Bootcamp as a subdomain of your other site. If there is some relation in topics, then that would be a different situation.

I would just start a new SiteRubix subdomain for the Bootcamp site. Then you can move the site to a domain if you want to continue with it.

Steve, thanks for this. As you might have noticed I know nothing of sub-domains. However your idea matches mine in getting a new website domain for the WA bootcamp site.

That's what I thought about Domains and subdomains. I would suggest a change to WA that you are offered the choice of which site in a drop down before you go to publish, potentially lessening any confusion.
Now, just to be clear. I have steppingstonesforhealth.com for my posts on low back pain which I will connect to affiliate programs that relate to the subject (reviews on mattresses, massage products, etc.). Now, i am creating financialhealth.steppingstonesforhealth to use for referrals and to write about WA. Is there a better way to do it, in your opinion?

You might want to use the idea of "buckets" in Site Content.

You have your "About Me" template in Site Content. You then create a new document in Site Content, using the "About Me" template, you then edit that 'new' document because you have some different things to say (about why you are in this niche which is different to the about why you in the niche for your first website). Save that to a "bucket" in site content called maybe sub domain dot your website name dot com (replacing dot with a . where necessary).

Then take the option in site content to save it, spell check it and make the necessary changes (if any). Then save. Then publish.

One of the prompts at the publish step asks you to specify the domain name, so you select the appropriate one (I assume that both websites are hosted at WA, right?) ...
Select the sub domain one, answer the other prompts, and click publish ....

That would probably make better sense from a marketing viewpoint anyway.

You might consider using a sub domain called "sandbox" dot one of your domain names. And use that for learning and testing purposes. That is one thing that I do. That way, if I make a mistake, it is okay, as it does not affect the live production site.

I saw that you already bought a new domain, but wanted to comment anyway because I had a similar situation. I ended up transferring my domain from GoDaddy to WA and then moving the content I had created on the subdomain to the newly transferred domain. Just an idea if you wanted to do that in the future. There are a lot of articles and training on how to do that from others through the WA search bar, but feel free to PM me if you have a question because it is a bit complicated.

Hi Cal, I'm not a master yet with SiteRubix but maybe if you went to the post that is "unpublished" and try and publish it again. If it is, then you can either delete the duplicate post from the WordPress back office or it will overwrite it. You can then check your posts to see that only one has actually been posted.

Hope this works for you.

Maddy55 Premium
Casey, to get readers to come to your website, to possibly buy through your affiliate links, you have to write posts or articles related to your niche. Some people put products with their links into pages, and do a review on the product on the same page, keeping their posts for ad free articles related to their niche. That is what I am doing for my second website. You will be writing articles or posts, with keywords that people search for within your content so it all looks natural. Some people will use their posts to do reviews on products, but if every single one of your posts is full of affiliate links and product reviews, Google may see that as spam and not rank (pay much attention to) your website as well when your readers are searching for a topic. Pages go into your Menu, and Posts go into your Blog roll or Home landing page. I hope this makes sense? I suggest that you take a close look at other websites when you yourself do a search on Google for something :) It will make more sense then.

Reply
Maddy55 Premium
Have you picked one product only, for your website? E commerce sites are a bit different than an affiliate type of website for sure. Affiliate sites are focused on bringing readers to your site through your interesting articles and reviews. I have seen many E commerce sites (on line stores for those that are confused what e commerce means) that also have Blogs where they write interesting stories or informational posts. I am sure all those blog posts have powerful keywords in them to bring Google searchers to their store. I am also sure that the descriptions for the products in those stores, have keywords as well otherwise how would that store come up in a search, right? Experienced website owners here say to write articles that are about 1500 words or so. Google seems to favor longer posts with quality content. Just the fact that those e commerce stores popped up when you did a search, means people are looking, using the keywords that are in their product descriptions. Without knowing what your product is, I cannot give more more specific advice. I think (but don't know for sure) that Google sees on line stores differently than it does affiliate websites.

Hi Casey,
Ultimately you want to sell products, but nobody really wants to be "sold to". However, most people do have issues or problems that they want help with. It the case of particular products, the issues are likely to be related to what the product *does* (or can help with) rather than what it *is*. So rather than focusing on, say, a line of food processors or crock pots, your initial content should be along the lines of "How to get a perfectly smooth puree every time" or "Is it really safe to leave your crockpot running while you're at work?"

This is the kind of content that Google prefers - content that helps readers solve problems. Keyword and audience research will help you determine WHO is likely to buy the products your promoting, WHY and HOW they use them, and WHAT words (search terms) they use when looking for information related to the Why and How.

So you should build up this kind of helpful content as much as or more than the product review stuff. And within each article, you can include some soft selling such as "If you're not sure which food processor might work for you, there's more information here" and link to a review page.

Does this help?

Your About Me does not have to be very long at all. The SiteContent has a template that has suggestive guideline titles to get you started. Once you have written a short About Me or just About (about your website), don't leave in the template titles. I have seen many beginners leave those in and they do not look good left in the article. Yes, when you click Publish, you will be prompted to choose a website, if you only have one, only one will show up. Then you will have the choice of just simply Publishing your article so that it goes 'live', or you can Publish and send it back to your WordPress dashboard to put in the finishing touches (that's what I always do). SiteContent will send your article to your website, there is no worries about that. You will see it when you go into your dashboard under either Pages or Posts, depending on what you intended. That is another choice, make sure you pick the right one :) Posts go into your blogroll that you create or automatically into your 'Home' landing page blog roll for many Themes. My Theme always creates an Automatic Home blog roll and puts all posts there. The pages will go into your dashboard under PAGES, and won't be seen on your website until you make a Menu for them and put the pages into your Menu.

They are never perfect, they make suggestions but not are all going to be in line with how you write. That is just the nature of the beast and with grammar check.

I once organised a seminar with Peter Sandman speaking on risk communication. This was for our department but we invited representatives from many of the groups we interacted with.

When I wrote the agenda to send out I got the following word/grammar suggestion. Sandman is not an appropriate word. Please try sleep fairy. (Now-a-days fairy is probably inappropriate too!) So I introduced him as Peter Sleep Fairy. That got a big laugh even from Peter. Mind you I did warn him.

When you post an article, is there a facility to choose which page on your website it appears in?
I'm assuming there is no 'copyright issues' with any images you can access via the platform?
Having written all my pages within my site without using this platform, would anyone recommend 'transferring over' via this platform?
Many thanks

Regarding posts: there are several options how to manage posts - it depends on your settings:
1) posts might appear on your home page (if it is not defined as static)
2) posts might be displayed on dedicated page
3) post listing will appear on the side bar - it depends how you set it up and on your theme

Kyle + Carson,

SiteContent is an AWESOME platform - thank you! Hubby swears by using it! ;-)

I have 2 suggestions please:

1. An UNDO last action function.

2. Different writing goals for different websites, including one for WA-profile posts.
That way Hubby and I can have separate goals, each for their own websites.
A global total over all the websites would also be nice too.

Thank you!

I have 4 saved templates. I can write but I'm not a writer and I'm not familiar with how to structure a blog post/article. For example I never would have known to use those 7 headings for a product review. Where can I find and save article/blog structures that I can populate with my content?

I have been using word to create my content then checking grammar with Grammarly. I recently tried the Site Content for the new website I am creating and found it very comprehensive. The only thing missing right now is how to add images, but I am sure that will be worked out shortly and explained.

you can already add images my friend

when in SiteContent writing your content, look at the editing bar under your document title
H1 H2 H3... etc... keep looking right and you will see an IMAGE COLOURFUL button-icon just before the ABC button

you can access tons of free ready to use image, just search for what you need and see what it comes back with
or from same place you can upload your own images

Excellent Overview of "The Complete Walkthrough Kyle About the template feature.
How to use a template more that just once? For instance, I have four reviews to write
and, I want to duplicate using that same review template. Now, would I need to create
another sample template for future use,or will this one be saved.

How do I save the original template after using it?
Reply
TCUK Premium
If you open a template and start adding your own text... when you hit Save it will be saved in your My Content as a new file and the Original Template is not changed and remains in the Template area.

So you can load a template, use it with your text and Save your edited version which will be added to My Area as a new file,,, then,,, for your next article with the same template, simply load that original template again and start editing for your second article... save it (goes to My Area as a new file) , etc...

So you do not need to save the original template, it remains in there anyway.

When you open a template and do some editing, of course, you can save that edited file as a New Template if you want for later use
Reply
AlanJE Premium
Hi Louisa I would normally save the original template as <new post>, and then use that for my new post, meaning that the original template remains blank, for later re-use. Otherwise I guess you could save the template after use, but would have to over-write the new content which you just wrote. Best Alan

My latest post in Site Content looks different than when I log in and edit it through the dashboard. The site content version looks like an older version, but when I published and got out site content it showed the newest, finished version and had a higher word count. Wonder why it's showing an old version now? Also, when I just go to the website to view it, it has the newer version. Anyone have any insight as to why this is happening?
Reply
DynamicDavid Premium
Do it again.

When looking at stuff, remember when it was last saved to the system. It is possible that in one view you were maybe looking at an earlier version of the article, but somehow expected it to show the latest version of the article. Maybe a refresh would have retrieved the latest version.
Reply
SWagner2 Premium
Hi David,

Okay, checking it again today it's still showing discrepancies. Going in through Site Manager it shows my post with latest version, 1043 words, all photos, all edits. Going in through Site Content it shows 853 words, no photos, no edits. It was published 21 hours ago.

The funny thing is that I did the original post through Site Content and published from there and it showed the latest version. But I noticed like an hour later that it was different, an older version. Shouldn't it show the latest version 21 hours later?

I checked the website from outside of WA and it looks as it should, with the latest version.

It makes me nervous to use Site Content though.

DynamicDavid Premium
If you did the last update using Site Content, then this is one for WA Site Support.
However a question, look for a difference between the two, some phrase in the "later" version, and look at that article in Site Content. It is possible that this phrase is there, and the "summary details are wrong", in which case WA support need to know so that that gets on a 'to do' list.

If you did the last update using the WordPress Editor, I do not think that it updates Site Content

I use Site Content to help me publish the original article, then once it is published over in WordPress, I do all my edits etc in WordPress after it is published. Everyone uses tools in different ways.

The vendor that I'll be promoting in Clickbanks provides a bunch of articles about the product. Is there any reason I should not put those articles on my website? I'm a newbie so I don't know all the Google rules. It seems like Google would consider the articles as duplicate content because other people would be using these promotional articles. Is that correct?

Google does not like duplicate content and you will instantly lose all credibility and ranking potential within Google as a result of this. This is absolutely going to curb any chances of success with your website.

All your website content should be 100% unique. Sometimes you may need to quote something or curate a component of the content, but I don't recommend that you have any more than 5% duplicate content on a given page (ideally you would have zero).

Unique, quality content is what will lead to rankings!

I wish the features in SiteContent could be available in WP through SiteManage for writing and editing the article, post, or page so we do not have to redundantly write in SiteContents where may be incomplete and we have to transfer the "imperfect" work to SiteManage. So, please implement the features in SiteContents, especially the button for FREE Media (pic) and ABC-grammar checks. These two features, to me, are essential but not easy to use from SiteManage.

Thanks for listening and implementing if possible.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems when I publish a post through SiteContent, it only adds one space after a period? Has anyone else noticed this? If I edit a post in WP after the fact, there is only one space. I just checked my blog also and this looks to be the case.

It may be a compatibility issue with your theme and sitecontent. I do not have this problem with sitecontent but I notice for one of my sites when I publish a post through sitecontent, the formatting is completely off. I usually have to go back and re-edit the whole article to make the format readable.

I trust Grammarly more than Site Content's grammar checker. But if I didn't already have Grammarly, I would probably be more enthused about Site Content's grammar checker.
One nice thing I like about Site Content is that it is a central repository for my writing. And the new free image search tool is awesome. A huge time saver. It's probably the main reason I start my writing in Site Content. I do my editing in the WordPress post editor of my website, where Grammarly helps "fix" my writing.

A workaround suggestion for members wanting to use this tool for sites NOT hosted by SiteRubix:

You can create and publish your content to a dummy site you set up just for getting the content off of the content tool unto a website, then copy and paste the content to use where ever you need it...

This way you can tap into the power of the tool while still getting checked content onto all your websites...

You may want to check do not follow for posts on the dummy site too, so it is not indexed by Google (you want to watch for duplicate content, of course)...

I love this tool!

Cheers!
Dave : )

Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is one way to use it if your sites are hosted on a different host. Ideally (and most people are) hosting their websites here within the platform, but there are certain some that host their sites elsewhere.

This would be a good work around and at some point we may open it up to sites not hosted here, that just comes with a lot of complication and headache.
Reply
DaveSw Premium
Yeah, this is a good workaround I've come up with and although it may add in a couple of steps, this way I can track who is doing what, and when...Setting this up now...

This tool helps me a lot as soon we will have 4 people writing and potentially 6 if I count myself and my business partner. I needed a way to not only track what is being produced by everyone but also needed to check everything from one location...

We have been using team folders and Dropbox and switched to a similar service (at half the price) from Amazon, but it still does not offer what SiteContent does...

Because of the grammar and spelling checks, the potential for adding templates, ability to find and add images, AND the plagiarism checker, I get a twofer and more...

I can track what each writer is doing, and not have to do all of these checks for each...This is going to save me MANY hours and will standardize our output somewhat...

The only downside is that to use this as I envision, I have to give them access to the site. I would prefer to have a team member feature so I could give them limited access to just this feature...

There is an idea (wink wink)!

Loving it!

What if you just saved the post? Then copy and paste to where it is supposed to go.. This way you don’t have to publish to a dummy site and risk getting indexed before it hits the site you want it on?
I do this for articles I write for freelance sites.

I don’t even use the grammar checker. I prefer to use Grammarly. I am annoyed that Site Content disables my Grammarly plugin. So I write in Site Content, then copy and paste into Grammarly app, do my editing, then either copy and paste back into Site Content if it’s going to one of my WA sites, or the freelancing site I’m writing for. A lot of copy and pasting. Ugh.

That’s a good idea about team memberships, though. Way better than trusting your login to someone.

Yeah, I have a 'do not follow' plugin for the test site and that is a step they have to take for the articles that will be posted elsewhere at the moment.

I like the plagiarism tool SiteContent has but can understand that Grammarly will do the trick plus the grammar and spelling check for you.

Since you are copying and pasting into Grammarly, that will eliminate any chance of error regarding duplicate content...There is still some risk with the system I am having them use now...

Love the way this can get us organized and provide a clear snapshot of everything being worked and posted...Right now we have 11 websites and more coming...

Oooof!

Yeah, that is a consideration...It kind of would be better for Kyle and Carson too, since less chance of someone offering up their account for training lessons, etc. without paying...

I am allowing team member access only for using the SiteContent feature, but I would feel more secure if there was a way to control access to just that feature...

I guess I could change my login details daily, but somehow that does not make much sense either. It is not a matter of trust, I have some good team members...

Maybe they could have a Team Access feature for just Site Content. Well, and Site Manager, Site Builder, and Site Domains. All things that you would want people you hire to have access to.
But they would have reduced and controlled access.
Surely I’m talking about a premium feature set you would pay extra for.
Since they like offering new features at no additional price, perhaps you would just have to buy your team memberships (recindable or assignable) and they would have granular access to various things in your account.

Hmm. I’m just thinking out loud here. But that’s how they could keep in the spirit of what they have already been doing, but allow team access.
Reply
DaveSw Premium
That last bit is the same as what I am doing...Hmmmmm...How can we make it work...

I have some tools that we use to leverage the mundane tasks so fewer people can do more. There is no extra charge for this but not all have this feature.

The ones that do have a team access feature means I can add people that are working on the sites and support our overall business...

Not sure if that is something that could be included as an additional feature without a lot of programming, but at first glance, it seems like all the tools are already in place (i.e. the users from the websites who have access to publishing content are able to post in their name from SiteContent)...

I have different team members assigned to different websites, and by using the bucket feature (a really cool feature BTW) I can track who is doing what, and when...This is a perfect tool for what I need...

The contributors are located in Thailand, Germany, the Philippines, and here in Dubai (me)...So this is one central area that we can get all the hard work done and know the spelling/grammar/duplicate check/and track the deliverables...

This one feature for me is enough to make the monthly cost of WA pay for itself, let alone all the other benefits we have! I do hope this can be looked at...

Cheers!

Hey Leonie,

Yesterday there were a few members having issues using SiteContent, so Kyle and Carson are aware of problems and I'm sure they have been busy trying to fix this ever since.

Make sure to refresh your browser, empty your browser cache and delete your browser history before trying to use SiteContent again. This way you are sure to see any changes that are made to this awesome online tool.

If your issues continue, try using another browser. Again, if that step does not work, you can private message Carson.

Do be sure to let Carson know of ALL the steps you have taken in trying to correct any issues that MAY be caused by your computer or your chosen browser.

Hope this helps you.

I have used it twice now but not sure if I will continue to use it. I like to write content in advance when I have time and then "schedule" it to go live on the website on a certain day. It doesn't appear that the Site Content tool allows for this option. I also don't find it has quite the amount of editing ability I have in my Wordpress Theme so would like the option of sending it to my site in draft mode so I can do the final touches in my theme before it goes live. If these were options I would probably use it.

Absolutely, a +1 for adding the ability to send a post in draft mode for further tweaking.

I found this video (Site Content) to be thorough. I used Site Content today for the first time, and I'll be using it from here on out. I'll also be creating and using templates..

I have one question, though. When I finished my article and clicked Publish in the Site Content framework, my article didn't publish. I finally noticed in WordPress that the article was scheduled to publish later in the day. I didn't want to wait that long, so I edited the scheduled time to five minutes out. Five minutes came and went, and a message showed something like, "Missed scheduled time". I tried it again, another five minutes out - same thing. I finally clicked Publish in WordPress and it went live.

What did I do wrong?

I'm not sure if maybe you have some different settings than I do, but I have been publishing to my WP site through Site Content for a few weeks now without issue. Maybe it will be helpful to see what I have been doing.

I click "Publish" from the SiteContent page, then choose which site I want to post to. When the box pops up that says "Your post has been published", it gives you an option to view or edit the post in Word Press. Click "edit post" and in the upper right of your WP editor is the area where you can check/change the status of the post. If it says Published, great! (You can edit it if necessary and click Update.) If it doesn't, you can change just click Publish and you're done.

It sounds like maybe you just didn't take that one final step to edit it in Word Press. It only takes about 10 seconds, and it's probably a good practice to go ahead and check real quick each time you post anyway, just to make sure it's working.

Hope that helps!

(Also I just thought about that maybe your time zone setting in WP is not correct? I thought mine was right but when I looked again it's reverted back to the default settings.)

Can I use this to optimise pics from previous posts already published?
Would I need to upload all photos to site content and then have it back in my library and exchange them in the posts/pages?

How do you do the SEO part?
everything AFTER PUBLISHING? Seems a little weird to me.

Hello Heidi, as for the SEO part I am assuming you mean the ALT Text. Once you are in the SiteContent Image engine and you have selected the image you want, it will then be displayed as a single image and you will be able to crop it here. If you scroll down you will all your options like ALT Text, Description, where you would like the image to go such as a particular domain and web page.

As for optimization, check out this video from PatsyC a member hear, that shows a really easy way to optimize your whole site for images. Hope all this helps.

Not sure I understand the first question.

re:Featured Image When you have the post open in edit, you look to the lower right for Featured Image-Set featured image. This link takes you to the media library where you can use something already there or upload what you want. My experience is that you should do this before publishing, otherwise it will not show up in social platforms. I discovered this a few times that I forgot to do the F. Image and went back to fix it.

Once media library has opened the image, there will be SEO items to complete - including the alt text and title

SiteContent is a great tool for publishing new content.

To answer your questions:
- You cannot use SiteContent for previous content published to your site.
- To optimize existing images on your site you can use FTP (own domain sites) to download the images and use software to optimize the images before re-uploading them.
There are websites for that such as:
http://jpeg-optimizer.com/
or
https://tinyjpg.com/

or you can download and use the actual (java) tool:
https://github.com/collicalex/JPEGOptimizer/releases/tag/1

- The SEO part is after publishing. SEO is plugin bound and is therefore not included in SiteContent
- The Featured Images is after publishing. Featured images are often theme bound and are therefore not included in SiteContent
Scheduling is for now not possible within SiteContent, so if you want to schedule posts, you need to do this manually after editing.

Hi Kyle, I finally used SiteContent today and loved writing there :D
It's a lot better than I thought for someone who is old school and sticks to familiarity.

My issue was always the thought of writing it out, publishing it then going back to WordPress to finish it off. I like starting and finishing in one place. I know this was created for the content alone and you didn't want another WordPress.

Another issue was images but they are now added which is great. I can't use the 1 million images there are only 1 or 2 decent ones for my niche but my merchants have hundreds so I'm good there. But it's the optimizing in SiteContent and having the EWWW plugin in WordPress. I've had experiences with plugins clashing with similar variations as some aren't a plugin so this didn't sit well with me. You did tell me to keep the plugin for now but it will be phased out later.

I use H5 headings which may seem small but they work for me so I had to adjust them back in WordPress. When I did add images there was the one space to fill in the description so I would have to finish the rest in WP. Categories, Featured Image etc...

I wasn't sure where the permalink was but do now.
We can't preview so this deterred me from publishing it at this time so I ended up removing my images because I wasn't sure how that worked and I copied and pasted the content to WP and did the rest there. I didn't know what to think about having the images compressed in SiteContent then bringing them over to WP.

If I would have published it, would there be a copy of it in WP along with the rest of the posts? or would it just be at SiteContent. If it stays in SiteContent then my posts will be in two different places.

I need to get used to the writing first and just copy and paste for now. It would be nice to not have to publish it first then edit. But have it saved and sent to WP to finish it up.

Thanks for this, I'm glad I used it today and can't wait to write my next one which will be tomorrow :)

Really love this, and appreciate the amount of work you guys must have invested in putting this together for us. Three things, however, I would like to see in the next (2.0) version:

1. The full range of H headings. My niche site has a consistent style throughout its 800+ pages (mostly all recipes), and I rarely use headings larger than H4. Maybe it's my theme, but the headings 1 and 2 just look too ostentatious and gaudy.

2. The ability to send the content to my site as a yet unpublished draft, as either a post or a page, and ...

3. The ability to assign pages where they are appropriately parented.

Again, thank you so much for continuing to keep improvements and new features coming!

We can definitely add up to H5 tags. That is not a huge update.

2. The ability to send the content to my site as a yet unpublished draft, as either a post or a page, and ...

Why wouldn't you just keep it in SiteContent? If you publish, you can immediately go to your website (on post, it gives you the direct link) and make draft. It is very simple.

Something that we may consider though is scheduling of content right with the SiteContent UI.

3. The ability to assign pages where they are appropriately parented.

We don't want to rebuild Wordpress. This can still be managed in the same way within your Custom Menus. We are not rebuilding the Wordpress framework, rather this a content creation platform, the most advanced in the industry and it will continue to evolve in many exciting ways.

people keep asking whether the publishing the reverting to draft could be an issue in google?

Ive not started using this yet but one thing that jumps out at me is how do I post to the correct website in the correct place on the website? Does the content appear in the right place in the dashboard - page or post? I suppose the answer to all this will be to just jump straight in and get on with it !

Hi Helen

When you hit the publish button you're given the options to choose the website and whether it's a page or a post etc before you publish

Hi Kyle,

I am using SiteContent for the first time. I really like its spell checker & word count features. I didn't publish my content yet - so, I may fall in love with many other functionalities as I move forward... :) As of now, I discovered one simple feature that I'd like to have, but it doesn't seem to be an option in SiteContent: Print the Content. I am working on a complicated article involving many foreign words and special terms, etc. I wish I could read the whole article on paper before I publish it. Sometimes reading hard copy help me find errors or inaccuracies, which I missed during my several proof-reads on a computer screen. Do you think that PRINT function could be implemented sometime in the nearest future?

Thanks a lot,

~ Julia

If you wanted this, you could copy and paste the article into MS Word or Google Docs and then print it from there. Easy enough to do.

Hi everyone
The posts that I wrote directly on my site shows up in site content but lies under unpublished. Do I leave them there or do I press the publish button? They are published on live site.
Then scrolling over the google icon it shows my 2 recent posts that I did on Site content is not indexed, must / can I do something more to get them indexed?
I have also heard about backlinks, this might still come up in training, but a quick yes or no avenue would suffice
Thanks
Morne

That's weird about your posts showing up in SiteContent, that has never happened to me so I don't have an answer on that front for you. If you did them on the site directly they will get indexed with time as with any post/page on your site, so no need to hit publish as it will just publish them again, not a good thing.
As for the indexing, it will take some time to index, it really all depends on Google I have found> I see some people within hours being indexed and others being days to a week.
Lastly, I was not quite sure what you were asking about the backlinks, do you mean are they a good thing or not? Backlinks are a GREAT thing as another site is linking to your content helping your SEO strategy and yes this will be covered more in-depth in training. Again not a hundo sure what you are asking but this may clear up your question, it may not.

Is this linked to the WP editor? Just wondering about statistics, are we able to see stats for pages/posts that we already have published that are active in WP admin/editor area?

Also, it sounds like you have to add images in the WP admin area, as well as tags, categories, and featured image? All of these would need to be done in WP? So if I write a post in SiteContent will I see it in WP?

Is this going to replace the WP admin area? Do I need Grammarly anymore?

I recently started using the SiteContent feature to write my blogs. I like it because it enables me to see when or if my blogs get indexed in google.
You will have to add images, tags and categories from your wordpress back office as before. When you post the blog, you will see it in wordpress. Only the blogs that you write in the SiteContent writer will be visible in SiteContent. So you will only see stats for those, not the ones that are currently active in WP.
You will still need Grammarly if you have been using it. SiteContent does have spell check.
I hope I answered most of your questions, if not all. Have a good evening.

the checker of SiteContent does similar stuff to Grammarly, because it has also style checks built-in.

I cannot view the video, but i have been curious what this is about and it has not yet been covered in the training.
Should I be using this over creating a page or post via dashboard?
Ill watch the video when I get a chance, but that may be a while.

Take it from me. You should never skip any steps. One leads to the other.

here's an explanation of sitecontent that doesn't need a video, shows some of the differences and there's also a link to Carson's blog on it too the choice is still yours, whether to use this or the wp dashboard

Regarding creating links in content, in WP you would need to do an extra step in order to have a link open in a new window.

However, I didn't see "open in new window" option here demonstrated for Site Content. So I assume having a link open in new window is done automatically?

Hey Jean,

That's an interesting observation. If you've used SiteContent previous, you could check to see it the target="_blank" tag was added automatically ... or not.

It would be interesting to know this, and Thanks for asking the question.

Haven't used SiteContent yet. My question was simply a result of watching this tutorial. :-)

Going to try using it for the first time today.

I've set a goal in Site Content to write 2000 words by Thursday. (Particularly like how it helps us keep track and stay on track in regards to how much we write, as I've been struggling with discipline and consistency. I sense that this feature will seriously help me.)

You definitely do have this option when you select the link in SiteContent. So this will be not be an issue and it is a feature that is offered to you in SiteContent. ;)

Okay, then I'll probably see it when I actually use Site Content. I just didn't see it during the video demonstration.

MozMary Premium
yes, it is there and in one step whereas in wp it is two steps and easy to forget, you do still have a choice. If you want discipline take a look the September SiteContent Challenge, and set your publishing goals for the new week, once you set them you will be motivated to achieve them

I haven't explained myself clearly. My site and domain are WA. I want to migrate my posts and pages to the site content area so that I can get credit for what I have already written. The site content platform wasn't available when I started the program. There must be a way to do this. Thanks for your help so far. Regards, Joe

Copy and paste the content into the site content platoform. Or, just use the site content creator going forward.

I wrote my About Me post in SiteContent and published it. Later on, I wanted to make some edits and it led me to the editor in Wordpress.

My question is that after the edits are finalised and published via Wordpress, will they be automatically reflected in SiteContent? I asked because when I checked into SiteContent, the published post is still of the old version without the latest edits.

It will be edited in WordPress editor but not on site content.

Thanks Belden,
So any published post/page will not be updated on SiteContent, but only in Wordpress. Let me know if I get this right?

Yes, you are correct.

This was absolutely wonderful Kyle!! I now understand my dashboard, how to navigate the dashboard, etc. This made a big difference for me. Do you have videos that explains all of the titles in SiteRubix? If so I need to see them.

This is great for people like me who are not tech savvy and who are leary of clicking. I'm always afraid to click on something that I don't fully understand for fear of really messing something up!!!

Thanks again, this was wonderful!!

Thanks again...

I was mucking about inside Site Content and became very confused as to what was going on, This video really straightened that all out leaving me with only one question. I scrolled down through the comments to make sure I wasn't asking the same question again but the comments have confused me again. So, when I want to publish this piece of content whether an article or review or whatever have you, can I edit it later in WP to add images or effects that can't be found in the editor but can be found in an editor plug-in like Elementor or SiteOrigin? Otherwise, I get the feeling you won't have too many published pieces of content. Now, if I do add an image and Google later on indexes the content, will it still keep track of it here in Site Content since it has changed? There's just something with the publishing part I am missing and I watched the video twice to ensure I didn't miss something. So that's the only thing I am unclear about, but the video cleared all other confusion I had, great tutorial Kyle, thanks.

Yes, you can edit the content after publishing. You don't realy need to have a plugin to add images. Images are a pretty straight forward process to add to your site.
