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, 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 54,840 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 54,840+ of these plugins. **

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

Task 1: Activate Your Plugins

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

Plugin #1: Kraken Image Optimizer (Activated by Default). 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). This, combined with technology we have established with SiteRubix will give you the most optimized visual experience in the industry for your customers!

Plugin #2: All in One SEO Pack (Need to Activate). 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.

Plugin #2: Classic Editor (Activated by Default). This plugin is by default going to be activated on your website. So there is nothing that have to do on your end to set this up. The Classic Editor pllugin enables the WordPress classic editor, which in essence is a much cleaner and easier "working" environment to manage and edit your website content within Wordpress.

Your first task is going to be ACTIVIATING these plugins that are not already activated, 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 THREE awesome plugins added.

You will want to "check" off the All in One SEO, 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 Kraken and Classic Editor plugins (as mentioned) 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.

1. Activate the All in One SEO Pack Plugin
2. Update Any Plugin if it Has Available Update (optional)

Hello everyone!
I plan to focus my website not just on promoting WA but on other potential sources of income too.
For that, would you advise me to go through the Affiliate Bootcamp or Online Certification Program?
Also any suggestions for the name of my brand targeting university students and young working professionals would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance :)

Good question. I guess it would depend on which is the primary purpose for your website.
Do you want to promote WA first? Are your other potential sources of income going to be based on affiliate marketing?
Then attend Bootcamp training.

Otherwise, attend Online Certfication to learn how to create the Niche website.

I am thinking to find my direction for promote WA, for moms who struggle to pay the extra bills etc, I know there are many of you did good job on it. Who have advice and experience about promote WA, who like to give some of suggestion and ideas, please go ahead, thank you very much.

Now, I have confidence in the WA platform, having already developed my first site, I have decided to develop a site to promote WA.

I have been looking at which sub niche to focus on drawing on some of my own experience. I hacve followed the advice in this training and looked in Jaaxy for indicators.

What I have found for a search in Jaaxy for Retired UK Civil Servant Job vacancies, is: Avg <10 Traffic <10 QSR 0 SEO
85 Great

But a search in google throws up a huge number of pages

About 116,000,000 results (0.78 seconds) ! Somehow the two do not "marry up". Clearly those sort of numbers will not work for a new site to receive traffic. What am I doing wrong?

Best Regards,

Jaaxy shows "QSR" = Quoted Search Results.

Put the quotes around that specific keyword and it will show how many sites are targeting that specific keywords. In your example it's 0 as Jaaxy shows but based on your search within Jaaxy, traffic is also close to 0 for that keywrod.
DaisyLI Premium
@RoopeKiuttu, may I ask you a question? In Jaaxy, if Avg. > 40, QSR=0, is it means no competitor? what about the traffic? the more the better?

Well..... heck. I think this is my third go at goals in as many years. I have been hibernating from the affiliate platform for a good year, and came back to take a look at the Affiliate Bootcamp. And it seems to have grabbed a gear, AND I GET IT!!!!! When I’m through the training, I’m going after 300! Best wishes and success to all fellow affiliates!!!!

I cannot wait to implement this in my website! I want to be able to get 50 people in the remainder of this year, and would love to get to the conference. My goal is to achieve conference status next year as half of this year is already gone. But hey, stranger things have happened.
