Wordpress is the most widely used platform for managing websites in the world. This is because it is "open source", meaning the general public can utilize the code.

This is very similar to how Google's "Android" is an open source operating system for mobile phones and devices, Wordpress is an open source platform for building and managing websites.

At Wealthy Affiliate we have developed the most sophisticated and secure website platform in the industry with SiteRubix, leveraging the Wordpress framework.

One Important Aspect of Wordpress is Plugins.

Plugins are feature enhancements that you can install on your website. There are over 49,000 different plugins, everything from social plugins that allow your visitors to share your posts on Facebook/Twitter/etc, to e-commerce plugins that allow you to sell your own products directly from your website.

** As a Premium member you have full access to ALL 49,000+ of these plugins. **

Basically anything you want to do with your website, there is a plugin for it.

Today we are going to be walking you through the activation and set-up of the plugins that we "pre-install" with all website built with the SiteRubix platform. In the video below I walk you through the Plugins area of Wordpress and getting your initial plugins setup.


DISCUSS VIDEO: Understanding & Activating Plugins

Task 1: Activate Your Plugins

You have two plugins that you have preinstalled with your website.

Plugin #1: EWWW Image Optimizer. This plugin will crunch images that you upload to your website so they are smaller and they load quicker. This will make your website more efficient, run faster and ultimately rank better in search engines (search engines rank FAST websites better).

Plugin #2: All in One SEO. This plugin is going to be very useful to your set up and structuring for search engines. This will be used to manage your "meta" tags, which are important in terms of how search engines display your content within the results. This plugin also includes lots of other awesome features that we will be utilizing as we move through the training.

Your first task is going to be ACTIVIATING these two plugins, which enable them to start "working" on your website.

To do this, you first want to click the "Plugins" tab within your side menu in Wordpress.

This will open up the Plugins menu, showing you all of the plugins that you have installed on your website. Again, with every website you build here using the Siterubix SiteBuilder, you have TWO awesome plugins added.

You will want to "check" off both of these plugins, and then within the drop down, select "Activate". After you have done this, click the Apply button and your plugins are activated (see below).


Simple as that!

Now that your Plugins are activated, we are going to be setting them up.

The EWWW plugin is automatically set up and ready to work upon activating it, but the All in One SEO plugin takes a bit more work and we are going to be covering that in detail within the next lesson.

Your website is really coming along here, nice work! These are important steps that we get things set-up correctly before we get too far ahead of ourselves with content and of course, the "money" part of your business.

Hi Kyle,

I just finished the the training and am a bit confused. Must my review be about wealthy Affiliate? because the task said that i should write a review about wealthy affiliate whereas in your teaching you said that my review must not necessarily look like the one you used.

YumaBloggers Premium
NO. Wealthy Affiliate is the example here because you took the affiliate Bootcamp route but the training can be applied to any program at any time or for that matter any niche or product. My Advice is expanding on your knowledge and do the Entrepreneur Certification Course next as it shows you more on building out a niche and finding products to suit your readers.

So, according to Kyles' list... I've decided my niche to be
"home business/ baby boomers/ baby boomers about to retire"

So to combine this all together I have as a niche:
"Home business for baby boomers about to retire"

And I will promote this with my content value, helping people in this niche to become aware of "WA" avenues to earn online.

Kyle, thanks for the list, I saw so many niches to combine and use, it was a toss up. As I started to do the

"Home business for millenials with Undesirable Jobs"
Maybe, that will be my next niche site, so much to choose fm

Now to get over to the keyword tool, because I finally finished my review on a fragrance company. Hope I'm trailing the right tracks,lol

Thankful for that list.

I've come to grief trying to create Wordpress sites before and at first glance this appears to be no different, but that is because I don't know where it is going or what the planned stages are.

The first issue is the theme, not knowing which one or ones are most suitable for promoting WA, which is what I'm expecting this will teach me. I would expect to create a landing page with some sort of offer followed by an email capture page then a thank you page which links to my website where I can discuss the benefits of WA.

So once I had followed the instructions and created a site (after much time spent trying to select a suitable theme), I thought I had to immediately add relevant content by amending the existing posts and trying to create suitable landing page content only to be told in the next video to delete the posts and that I woiuld be continually adding content to the website, not something I would expect to do for a landing page.

So can someone please give me an idea of the plan, so in future I'm not trying to jump ahead and waste time trying to do things that are going to be explained later.

Kyle Premium
Don't overthink the process. Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out: You can always shift to a new and more complex theme down the road, but I recommend keeping things simple when starting out. It is your content that will rank, get traffic, and convert. Not the bells and whistles within a theme.

Hey Kyle, I was on the Keyword research part of the bootcamp, I think I may have found an untapped niche. But I wanted to ask about the quotations around the search phrase as you showed in the picture. You'll see in the picture I attached below that without quotes, it has a hell of a lot more competition. Although the search volume stays the same.

Yes, that is a huge audience. There is a lot of people with criminal records, that are wonderful people, but companies are very much against and have policies against hiring folks with a record.

You can help them out, and building a business online is certainly one way to create an income.

Hello everyone!

We are creating a new website about family..things you can do to spend time with your loved ones.. This is more for kids, but also some topics about parents, including grandparents.. our target audience for this bootcamp training would be more of parents and grandparents who want extra income..is this too broad? do we still need to refine this?

Your reply would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you..

Hi Everyone,

My Niche is Travel, my family travels a lot. Family traveling for many reasons and finding places to visit, dining and and exploring cultures and meeting people is important to me and my family. Just taking every advice I need here at WA, so far Im learning so much I have to go back and read, watch and do! My goal to read, Watch the videos and just do it! One step at a time...
Reply

What aspect of the travel niche do you want to help people with? There are literally 1,000's of niches within these categories and you will want to narrow it down. Where specifically? What type of travel? What aspect of travel?

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. :)

Please let me know if I can keep my "brand" and if the direction that I want to go as well as the target group can go through.

I think that brand actually makes much more sense with a bootcamp related site, so you can certainly use this for your bootcamp.

My questions:

1. The websites that we create, are they meant to be mostly blog post? For example, the way I made it to WA was through a blog review about another affiliate marketing platform.

2. I am a paramedic firefighter and a deputy sheriff. Can I use this to target an audience?
Reply
HelenpDoyle Premium
Your website can be what you want it to be. The dividing line is quite fine as blog and post are interchangeable. Just write quality content to attract visitors to your natural friendly manner.

Say you write an engaging post, advising folks what to do if a bush fire threatens them, (yes these can be niches). Within that you can informally promote some safety ideas and devices.

The advise content is a blog and the ideas and devices within it, can be your income focus.

If Florida is similar to Australia you could include fire plans that you do for your visitors! I did my own before licenses were required. I set it all out, talked to the Fire Brigade's area manager and had it approved in half a day. By the time others wanted me to do it, licences were required. Even for a simple one that revealed that a property had no significant risk, $1,000 was the base price.

Good luck in whatever you choose for your niche.

The best way to write a really good review it to start. That is not meant to be funny, really just get something down, get a structure and few photos and express you view of the product. Remember you can always come back and review your posts after they have been published. DO IT.

AHunsinger1 Premium
What specific problem are you having?

If it is generating ideas, think about what you are interested in and how it can help people. People tend to go to the internet to find information. That is your website's job, to provide valuable and honest information. This can be done in a review of a given product, if that is what your intentions are.

If you haven't gone through the training, then do that first. The affiliate bootcamp training seemed to clarify things for me better. The biggest thing you should be thinking of when finding your niche is answer the question Who?, What?, When?, Where?, and Why?

Also, there are several different training pages here in WA on keyword searches. As you go through the training, they will become more clear on how to use keywords.

Hope this helps.

I did it and I'm terrified!!! I just published my first WA review and it was the most stressful thing I have done (okay, a little melodramatic there)! Seriously, it just seemed like you have so much riding on that review and of course, you don't want to mess anything up. Did anybody else feel that way or is just my over sensitive doubting self that is driving up my anxiety level?? :<(

Ok, so here I am back into Affiliate Bootcamp training. I have a site already BUT I'm definitely NOT HAPPY with my work on it. I have made a ton of mistakes on it... it's my first website.

I have a second site which is my dive site and I'm enjoying it and keeping it going.

I have a new site for this training, this time I want to be on the right track. This is what I have come up with and please tell me if I'm thinking of this the right way... ( want to get back into my Super Affiliate Training with this).

Monica’s direction for her new business is:

“Helping People Become Entrepreneurs”

I want to help people who want to be successful entrepreneurs. This will be my brand and I'll have topics based on this.

The name of my brand:

Work Anywhere Business

Target Niche: Self-Employment (Entrepreneurs)

What do you think or do I need to go back to the drawing board?

Thank you!

I purchased the domain name 'workanywherebusiness.com' yesterday. Also purchased a theme called Authority Pro from StudioPress.

I couldn't feel the excitement of my first website and didn't even like my targeted audience. I also realized I wasn't using my keywords properly... I hope I do now.

The new site is much better because I know I am an entrepreneur (have had businesses and successful in them) PLUS I love to travel to scuba dive and want to be able to have this business and my dive site work for me anywhere in the world.

I'm going back to following your Super Affiliate Training again. I am working on goals for 1 year and break those goals down into mini-goals this weekend.

I enjoy challenges... so BRAIN it on Wealthy Affiliate!!

Hi, I'm a college student and my goal is to help other college students pay off their student loans. I myself am in my first year and I've already borrowed like $5,000 from the state to pay for school. Around 1.5 million students are graduating with debt in the United States and I think some of them could really use some extra cash. The brand name I'm thinking of is "So Long, Student Loans" (got 453 results on Google, not terrible) or "See Ya, Student Loans" (this got only 33 results, which is great I think). Which name is better? Or is neither a good option? Should I add an exclamation point or remove the comma? I'm no genius in marketing.

If you go to Appearance => Themes (and "customize" for your particular theme ) within the back office of your website, you will likely see your home page header there which you can upload an image for.

There are typically many other settings in there as well that you can use to manipulate theme colours, font colours, theme images, logos, menus, structure/layout, etc.

See attached image for reference.

Hi Kenisha3
The niche of your website must reflect the banners you decide to add. Wealthy Affiliate banners promote WA, so your niche would be something to do with online marketing, working from home, affiliates, etc.
Visitors may like what they see on your website and click on a banner you have placed, your banners are encrypted with your own unique code so WA knows where that referral has come from and subsequent commissions are yours forever!!
No need to 'tell', (answer above) , but I am sure you would love them to spread the word about this fantastic opportunity and this fantastic place, Wealthy Affiliates, where members, learn, create, grow and succeed!

The Name went way too long so I need to shorten it Basically Saying Learn how to Start your own website and or affiliate Program with very little cost or Brain Drain. which I desperately need to change, the main thing I’m peddling is honesty straight forward with no “Gurus” charging you the Earth and coming away more confused. yep so I need to shorten it without losing the core meaning I think I possibly missed something I should of maybe ran a search but I know what I was looking for what I believe my Niche Market wants is to blog Earn a Passive income by Affiliate Marketing or run a little shop online they have all done the rounds been sucked into crazy ripp off schemes and they are Wary if they haven’t done it yet they will come around next time,I hope I don’t sound too jaded I don’t know it all but I know my Audience Through Analytics and being one of them for quite some time. Honesty is missing and there’s far too many people calling themselves Experts,Trainers or Influencers and charging people like us the earth to get some understanding.
I hope to turn up when there’s some people about I just spend a lot of time growing my Audience but I’m getting good results so it’s like my unpaid job.

I am looking to help as many peeps as I can to make money online. Times are a changing, I even see in my biz that I have to supplement as there is more & more competition in my space, especially with the big chains.

Is is possible to just incorporate WA within my own website NOW & do a blog from there, maybe a page all dedicated to WA?

OR should I build a NEW site?

I wouldn't try to incorporate WA into an irrelevant website, but if you can do so with relevance by all means.

I would recommend that you consider it if you can, but ideally you have a website dedicated to a niche relevant to WA and you can decide on this within the target audiences training (which is lesson 2).

Now I'm ready to hopefully make some money with this bootcamp training and new website because i know my first one will take some time to get rocking.

Since no one has responded yet ,I have been doing some thinking and maybe this domain name would be better and give me more options of what to blog about on my website. Here it is:

My situation and possibly a primary target audience is people living or wanting to live as Expats in Asia. For many the opportunity to work online would be the ideal income. My roadblock is Domain name. How important do you see inclusion of keywords in the Domain name versus in the by line or site description? So many people on the net spruking "Keywords are dead" when the reality is that words in a search bar are the start of any search in any browser. Ideal domains are are usually taken by existing webmasters or entrepreneurs trading them at crazy prices. i do have experience and understand the mix Google use isn not solely keywords, site authority, bounce and other factors are involved.

Hi Brendan, The keyword in the domain name can give a slight advantage but it's not an important ranking factor. For this reason, I prefer brandable domain names that people can remember and type easily.

You will get ranked on the first page of Google by targeting low competition keywords and creating helpful content for your readers.

Below is a nice training on how to choose a good domain:

I want to help military spouses, disabled veterans and their spouses, and everyday disabled or differently abled individuals be able to find a way to make a viable income from home despit the challenges they face every day. I'm not certain if I should actually break this up into two niches (maybe three), or keep it as one. The content would be similar. My husband and I have been together through nine years of active duty (him) and now three and a half years out of the military in the civillian world with him as a disabled veteran. Bringing in money consistently is tough when you're moving at the army's whim or don't have the support to take care of kids so you can work. So many veterans have a hard time finding a job after army life which suits them (they don't know where they fit) or pays well, and the spouses of disable veterans often have to take on the additional burden of making up financial shortfalls.

I think I target people like me that had to take early retirement, because my body is worn out by 39 years of hard work. Target people who have worked all their lifes and can't live on what the government gives you for Social Security. The people who worked under the table, who have not paid much into Social Security. I live on 770 a month and live in two storage building put together as an studio apartment. Has no insulation and takes the rest of my check to heat. Enough about my story, but that is my target audience.

Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. My niche is for the people that believe 60 is the new 50 or even 70 is the new 60. People that are looking for ways to achieve their dreams even if they are on SS. Just because you may be retired doesn't mean your not able or willing to take on another challenge.Ten and twenty years is a long time to live if you don"t have goals and aspirations to strive for.

Clicked DASHBAORD on the side menu.

Clicked INSTALLED PLUGINS, A message appeared , stating, you do not appear to to have any plugin available at this time.

Clicked "Add New". On that same page there appeared four words at the top of the page, FEATURED - POPULAR - RECOMMENDED - FAVORITES.
Then same page a little lower, the was BOODY PRESS - bb Press - Jetppack by wordpress.com
Does this indicate that I am ready to continue or do I need to go back and activate two more plugings?

It's possibly because it requires a custom menu to be added for it disappear. See this tutorial here for further reference: Hope that helps!

P.S. the "Inspect Element" is a browser side function - so that is just changing how your browser displays the site, it is not actually making any changes to your website itself (hence why it reverts upon refresh).

I'm struggling with 'direction' - specifically being too generic vs too restrictive.

At the moment, my site is a general 'make money online' website - which has multiple verticals/niches within it.

In the past, I have made a website around just one niche - but this quickly reached its limit.

My site has genuine solutions for people who want to make money online - so possibly targeting it towards 'frustrated' folks who've tried and failed to make money before?

But again, 'frustrated' could encompass the same number of verticals.

Am I overthinking this?

(For reference, my website link is below - I'll remove it if it's considered spam):

In #3 of this lesson, it says to obtain affiliate link through the "Program Details" tab at https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share.

Before I landed at WA, I did some looking into dropshipping. I want to include a quick comparison between the two, but haven't found much, apart from sites that want to get me back into dropshipping (to drop affiliating), to help me to steer people away from that and toward WA.
Suggestions? I probably won't need much; just a way to springboard the discussion in this direction, now that I've given a basic outline of the two methods of eCommerce.

In the video, Kyle mentions possibly using the viewpoint of BBB. The Better Business Bureau appears to be oriented to brick and mortar, not online operations, like this. Though I could have looked it up incorrectly. I entered "Wealthy Affiliate" and "Chicago, IL" (mainly because I don't know where WA world headquarters is at.).
Reply
KevinH427 Premium
UPDATE: After more digging, I found this:
This business is not BBB accredited.
Businesses are under no obligation to seek BBB accreditation, and some businesses are not accredited because they have not sought BBB accreditation.

To be accredited by BBB, a business must apply for accreditation and BBB must determine that the business meets BBB accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. BBB Accredited Businesses must pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.

UPDATE #2: The above applies to BBB in the U.S. In Canada, where WA is based, the rating is B+.

Kyle's list of things you could focus on is incomplete. Everything he says is great, but for me one of the best features is the intangibles. For example, the community is ethical and not self-centered. At the top, it's not hero-oriented, but member-oriented. What's taught is centered on nurturing the selfless part of us, in order to help others--which, in my view, will ultimately attain higher returns, anyway, than an approach that takes advantage of others for quick, selfish gain.
A philosophy like this--which isn't preached, but organically delivered--is one of humility and not arrogance and may be less threatening to the public, scaring fewer off. At least that's what has come through for me.

"Affiliate program that works"

And I'm targeting the working middle working class that needs an extra cash or passive income. Like myself.

That's completely fine. You can "research to write". Nobody starts off as an expert within any niche, nobody. Every expert you see out there started off somewhere and the online world and what you learn here is going to walk you through the process of becoming an expert.

Every expert surgeon started off at one point as a first year student. Every person with expertise within the online business world (myself included) started off with ZERO knowledge.

That should be exciting to you knowing that you can enter absolutely ANY niche you want and become the expert and build a full time income doing so.

Immerse yourself into your niche. People will trust you if you can offer them help and you don't have to reach the "expert" status to have a full time business within a niche.

Sure, these are all topics you can discuss within your website, but I wouldn't confuse your brand and I would choose something more specific to just one of these.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

I am a Premium member and also a beginner at all this. I was going through the training, I had a choice to continue with the training, choose a niche and build a website, or join Bootcamp. As a beginner, I wonder if I should not bother with Bootcamp yet. Also, I'm guessing that in the Bootcamp program that I probably have to pay out more in order to receive higher commissions. I think just learning the basics might be best for me right now, instead of trying to go big.Does anyone have insight about this?

Hi Nicole,

First, the bootcamp or OEC training, and so much more training all comes with the premium membership nothing extra to spend here.

The concept fo offering both training modular is so if you can't think of a niche that you want to build a website for then it is suggested that you do the boot camp training first.

What i have found id s that almost all of the members actually go through both training's . I mean why not is too much knowledge a good thing or bad thing.

Also you will find in the search box up in the tool bar to the right of the WA icon has tons and tons of additional blogs, videos, tutorials, and member training's on just about any topic associated with marketing online or affiliate marketing in general.

And if all that isn't enough you also have live chat where most of the time there is someone in there that can either answer your question or guide you to the material to answer it for you

Just to let you know,

Calvin

You can ask questions either place...
I wanted to let you know why I decided to promote WA and do passive income for middle income families. I want to put all my time and focus in learning online business and not have to worry about writing and reading about other things. I am using it to reinforce my learning and teach others at the same time. If I am having issues or questions with something, I am sure others will too! I can write about whatever I learned recently or researched regarding how to do things to make that passive income!
I do not think I will do passive income forever. Although there are some pretty high tickets I think I can promote once I get some authority in this feild.

three posts and just leave the "header" there. I will add

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).

On my review title and content am I supposed to use one of the 5 keywords from the previous lesson?

Do I need to create my review title based on traffic and competition as well?

How many times should I use my keyword throughout the article?

Thank you, Brandon.

Kyle Premium
Yes, you can if those keywords are relevant. You typically want to choose your target keyword, and then write about that keyword within the article versus choosing the keyword after the fact.

Awesome advice, Kyle! After about an hour of researching I was able to find several long-tail keywords that had nearly 10k average monthly searches and well over 1.5k in traffic. My only competition for each keyword was LESS THAN 10 sites! Talk about hitting the FREAKING JACKPOT! Couldn't be happier right now...

Wow, that does sound good. As you perform keyword research and build out your website you are going to find that there are a lot of keyword gems out there.
Reply
jmac86 Premium
I do hope so. My only concern is the reliability of Jaaxy. I have on occasion found a few long-tail keywords ending with "and" "or" "but" etc... that had unusually large traffic and averages, (well over 100,000) with ZERO QSR.

Does Google penalize us if we target keyword oddities like this?

if not, are there any merits or demerits to targeting it?

Hey Jason,

Something else to think about when using Jaxxy to do keyword research is that Jaxxy does not compute paid for advertisers into their competition calculation.

So your Jaxxy result may look good then you go and do a search on Google and see their are 20 big time brand names that will be your competition.

In other word your may do a search for keywords "novels on civil war romances" the QSR number might be low like 20.

But when you do the actual search on Google you will see your competition is Amazon, Barnes n Nobles, e Books, Powell's Books, Better World Books, and some of the other major book stores which will be hard to get ranked against.

Just something to watch out for,

Calvin

Hey thanks for the huge tip. I never thought to double check who the actual competitors for the keywords are on google!

Yep, sure enough... Wordpress and Blogspot are the top competitors for a few of them... Ouch!

Calvinator63 Premium
Hey Jason,

Try switching up the keywords a little bit, but make sure they still make sense, you may find one or two variations that the other's have over looked.

Also click on them, look to see what they wrote on the topic, if you think you can do better, beat them out of the spot.

Even with the big brands (its harder but it is still possible) can be beat with a better blog.

Although I would wait until Google has started ranking you up near the first page before you start trying to out write professional paid writers, LOL

Which is what most of the top brands use to keep their ranking up there.

Good keyword research does pay off,

Calvin

okay so, i've begun building my website and honestly, building it in 30 seconds was lost on me, its a little more complicated for me, I am not understanding how to save the work without publishing and there are several things like the theme i am not getting how to get it to show just for starters
Reply
HelenpDoyle Premium
In a way the 30 seconds is a misnomer. You have to make sure all your information is collected, and the preliminary work is done. Once you have this the actual site builder does only take 30 seconds.

So don't worry if you are a bit slow. I know I did take a while and I also know I wasn't the only one.

Thanks Kyle for easing the stress of being a "writer" for your blog. It was exactly what I needed to hear at this stage of my training. I probably like many members new to the whole WA affiliate blogging idea for your income website. Became hesitant, especially when looking up at the plaques hanging on your wall. Not one showed a degree or diploma as a college grad writer. So thanks again for being so thoughtful in your training and uncondescending demeanor.

I started off in the regular training with building my own website based on a current business i already have. Problem is getting the content going as my business partner is not as focused as i am however more knowledgeable on product usage and descriptions. I have started the boot camp so i can see something through and gain a better grasp at what all of this is, as i have found it kind of overwhelming. I hope in doing this i can find a niche of my very own to grow on in the future.

I love the comments i read bellow on how being overwhelmed means your learning and growing. I am defiantly not giving up and feel the boot camp is more up my Ally at this current time.

Yeah, it's part of learning to feel overwhelmed with a new idea. The thing is, as adults, we typically lose the habit of learning new things with regularity (like we do when we are younger) because it is easier to do just what we know.

If you stretch yourself and your knowledge, it will create more work, but that is also what will lead to success.

Well there are a lot of themes out there. Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

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

Looking for some advice. I have been working on an affiliate niche website, and am now interested in this side of things.

I am looking at a target audience of me. I have a good job, but I am looking for more flexibility and financial freedom. I want to work on my terms, take time off when I want to, not when my boss says I can. I want to work from home and set my own hours. I am tired of the 45 - 60-minute commute to work each way. My job is just okay, I don't enjoy it, but it pays the bills, and I want more than that. There has got to be more right?

I am married with 2 teenagers, and I would love to have more time for everyone. I have been in the trenches for 20 years and am definitely interested in making money online and helping others who are in a similar position.

So people like me, men and women looking for freedom and flexibility and something that I might actually enjoy :) I am not sure how to narrow this down more, or what I would focus on exactly. That is where I need some help.

I'm a bit confused about putting in our Affiliate/Call to action links on only our second post. I read this other blog: "Whenever I am building a niche website that will have affiliate links on it, I ALWAYS wait until the the site is ranking on the 1st page for at least one keyword BEFORE adding any affiliate links.
Why? Because it builds trust with Google.
They won’t rank a new website that has a bunch of affiliate links on it. Google wants to see a site with quality content before it ranks a website.
- quote by Jay Neil / Magistudios"
QUESTION 1: Does this only apply to Online Certification Course Niche websites?
QUESTION 2: What about sites like mine that only promote Wealthy Affiliate, when should I include affiliate links?

Yes, a direction you can head. I would consider coming up with a relevant brand to this. And don't worry about keywords, there will be 10,000's that you can target within any niche direction that you choose.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

Do keyword research on all the variables so you know the stats. Sometimes there can be a big difference, but often it’s the same results.

You can add words around it and it is effectively a new keyword.

You can rank for the longer version and also the shorter version. You can even rank for other keywords within your article that you don’t even promote as keywords.

Can you change the theme of your website after you have started posting and arranging things on your website. I didn't know to look at more detail about themes when I was picking out a theme. The one I picked puts the side information on the top below the top pages and I don't like how it is arranged and I think it won't let me change it unless I go pro with Founder.

You can change it, it’s usually no bother at all and everything goes where is should, but you might find the occassiinal hiccup if the new theme doesn’t support some of the existing elements. You might need to recreate menus, or add widgets etc. none of your content will be lost.

In the WP dashboard, go to Apperence, Themes, Add or New (can’t remember exactly) and search. There are thousands of free themes. You can also preview the theme on your website before you activate it.

Just check that they are being updated still. It should have a reasonably current date on it. Some developers stop supporting free themes and the. You don’t get updates.

So I've chosen promoting WA as my niche. Anyone have experience going from promoting WA to doing other niches? I have lots of ideas but I really like WA so I'm starting with that. I assume it's a matter of applying the skills from one to the other. Is that the right way to look at it?

I fully agree with you. I have made the mistake in the past by attempting to build too many businesses at once. Focus on either your niche or WA whatever you feel comfortable with. Confucious said "the man that goes out to catch 2 rabbits catches none" Once you have mastered it, move to the next and use your authority within google. Easier said than done though. Good Luck all the best peace.

I like what you had to say, especially about using authority within Google. That will give me a skill set to focus on. Thanks for your input!

I have two quick questions concerning this post. - Do we have
control over the "comments" - Can we edit or delete the comment?

Second question, Kyle say to Publish the post and then edit it
and add imagery, etc. - I don't understand why we wouldn't do
all of that before we hit "publish" - If we hit publish first and then
add imagery, etc., do we hit "publish" again?

You do have control over the comments. You have to approve them before they go live on your site. You can edit their comment, add your reply and the approve it to appear on your site.

I always add my images, links, video etc in site comments before publishing. I find it always changes layout a bit once it goes to WP so I immediately go to the post in WP and re-edit it and hit update.

As Heidi says, but you can also change your post back to draft in WP if you are going to be a while editing. Then click the publish there.

Yes, you definitely can add imagery before hand. If you are Premium, you can add images directly within SiteContent and there are over 1MM+ images (high definition) that you can add directly within SiteContent.

"This is a necessity if you want to become a top affiliate. I want you to take a second right now and officially join Affiliate Bootcamp by clicking the button above. It is going to help you keep on track, keep you informed, and is going to allow us help you make more money! This is a requirement to continue with this course...and something that is going to help you out as well!"

I have tried to follow the above instruction at the end of the first sections of the bootcamp, but nothing happened. Am I missing something?

There is a Tick and it did say I have joined the boot camp officially
Please, help

You have joined, you can tick that box and move on. It’s a little cryptic

Hello everyone, I have a quick question.
I am in the middle of making my WA affiliate website and I was wondering if it was better to only focus on stuff specifically for the promotion of WA? I was going to to multiple things in this website to attract multiple types of people and I just wanted to ask what was better?

I think at the beginning of your website it is better to focus on a targeted niche audience.
If you go too broad Google has a hard time knowing what to rank you for.

I have decided to follow the WA Bootcamp training and promote WA. I believe WA can/will/does help people enrich their lives. I believe I have found what I would like my target audience to be but not sure how realistic it is. I’m thinking female baby boomers who would like to work from home to spend more quality time with family/friends.

I love your target audience! And I think a lot of them could benefit from this!! Whether they are just tired of working their lives away OR they have found themselves jobless after strong years of dedication!! Its sad but they are losing their jobs they have worked so hard for to the younger candidates everyday! I think you will have HUGE success in targeting that audience!! Good luck

I'm having a hard time trying to figure out where to start. I'm trying to go through the lessons and the bootcamp. I want to go with some thing for stay at home parents, or single parents. Even start with the aspect of childcare being so expensive. Help? Any tips, advice, or any random brainstorm ideas welcome! Thanks guys!

First try to figure if you want to create your own website and go through the step by step training or promote WA and do the bootcamp. Trying to do both will take time. After deciding which way you want to go. Then do what you are most passionate about. That will be your focus to build a website.
Hope this helps you.
To your success

Why not turn your stay at home income journey into a niche of it's own. Plenty of people looking for opportunities to work from home & you will have plenty to talk about as you progress through the course :)

That's where I think I'm going to start. I believe that there is a lot to go with there!

I got this message when I was about to publish the Private Policy page:
Warning: We found that your content is not 100% unique. This means that Google may determine that you are publishing duplicate content which could negatively affect your rankings. We suggest modifying your content to make it unique before publishing to a website.

I just got the template of the Private Policy and just changed the url into my url.

Can I just ignore the message and click the button: Publish This Content Anyway?

Would it really negatively affect my rankings as mentioned in the warning.

Hope to get an answer soon so I can proceed immediately.

Thanks,
Maribeth

You need to go into word press and click the button that say for your posting not to get indexed.

**Note: Your Privacy Policy is duplicate content because it is a stand document. SiteContent is going to warn you about this when you attempt to publish, and that is completely fine. Publish anyways, we are going to be blocking the search engines from seeing this.

After you publish your Privacy Policy, you are going to want to log into the back office of your website (Wordpress Admin area) through the SiteManager or through SiteContent. When you are within the editor for this page, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the following settings.
Check off the Robots Meta NOINDEX and the Robots Meta NOFOLLOW. These will make sure this page (which is all duplicate content) does not get indexed in Google. The Privacy Policy is the ONLY page you want to do this for as it is duplicate content.

I copied this from the training follow this steps and you should be fine.
