Google, heard of it?

If you are like me, you rely on Google for pretty much everything, from research, to product reviews, to solutions to problems. Google has billions of users, actively using their search engine every day to find stuff.

Introducing Search Engine Optimization...

Our goal with our website, in particular in the first 6-12 months with it is to get lots of rankings in Google (and other search engines) and to do so for FREE.

This is accomplished through what is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which is something that you are going to become very knowledgeable with in a short period of time. You are going to learn how you can show up in Google, get traffic, and generate a lot of revenue as a result.

I have created a video walking you through the fundamentals of a successful SEO ready website and I also show you how to set-up your All in One SEO plugin, which is going to be the framework for getting your website prepared for SEO.

 

SEO is NOT Rocket Science.

People tend to overthink SEO and think there is MORE to it than there actually is. Part of the problem is that there is so much misinformation online about SEO.

I can tell you, first hand, it is not rocket science. You don't need backlinks, you don't need to know some random secret, you don't need PBN's (if you don't know what that is, don't worry) and you don't need to be an expert author.

There are a few basic components to SEO that are going to be our focus as we move you through the training. I am going to give you a quick overview of these, not to add to complexity or overwhelm you, but rather add simplicity.

  • Initial Website SEO Set-Up (which we will be covering today)
  • Keyword Selection
  • Content Length
  • Content Structure
  • Engagement
  • Social Elements
  • Time (Authority)

Frankly, wipe clean your SEO knowledge. You are going to be learning how to rank not just now, but for years to come as you move through the Bootcamp training. It is in my best interest to see you succeed with your SEO and I want you to see results!

The Incredible, Long Term Opportunity With SEO.

SEO is a long term traffic opportunity that is not going anywhere. As more people come online and more people spend time online, they are searching for things at a higher rate than ever.

The average person performs over 130 searches per month in Google, and Google is currently getting over 3.5 BILLION searches per day. And that is just Google.

That is traffic that YOU can leverage. With 3.75 BILLION people active online, it is going to be your job to intercept people through "search terms" (keywords) that they enter in Google, build trust through helping them, then make a recommendation of products and services.

In the case of your Affiliate Bootcamp website, Wealthy Affiliate will be one of the websites that you can recommend and earn a great deal of income with.

People simply are not going to stop searching, in fact, as people become more and more connect with MORE devices, the number of daily searches only goes up. This creates an incredible and very much growing opportunity for you as an affiliate marketer.

Task 1: Set Up Your Website Up For SEO

Task 1: Set-up All in One SEO on your site

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a very important aspect of any website's success.

In this task we are going to be setting up a plugin that makes our website code (the stuff behind the scenes of our website) friendly for search engines like Google so they can index and rank our sites properly. This is going to be very powerful for your website content getting ranked in search engines going forward, so DO NOT skip this task.

Since you activated the All in One SEO within the last lesson, you should see the "All in One SEO" item with your main menu now in your Wordpress back office. If you mouse over that menu icon, a sub menu will pop out (see below).


Simply click the "General Settings" link. This is where you will be going to set-up your SEO settings for your website.

The main section you are going to be updating here is the Home Page Settings section. There are two sections that you will be updating there:

  • Home Title - This is the title of your website that will show up when you get ranked in Google and other search engines. This won't actually show up on your site.

    You want this to reflect the actual title of your website that you created with your site, but also add something to make it a bit more captivating.

    Ideal Length: 40-60 characters, keep under 60
  • Home Description - This is a description of what your website is about and how it will benefit people. Don't overthink this part, you just want to be descriptive as to what your site is.

    Ideal Length: Under 160 characters

Although there are a TON of other settings, you are not going to need to update any of these at the moment, not for SEO purposes.

When you are done updating your Home Page Settings, scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click the "Save Changes" button.

Upon doing this, you are done. Your website is set-up and SEO READY! :)

A few important points things to take note of here about All in One SEO:

  • You DO NOT need to "Upgrade to Pro". The free version is more than adequate for your needs.
  • You won't see these changes to your actual site. The work is done behind the scenes within your websites HTML code. It is making your code friendly for search engines.

Awesome, your website is all set-up for SEO now! As you build out your new pages/posts, they will automatically be optimized for Google and other search engines. If you have any questions about the set-up process, leave them in the comments below and we will give you a hand.

Just starting my WA affiliate site, just wondering if it is OK to put Links in my first post, I am writing a review on WA.

It was just when we done the other training it was advised not to put links in until you had a few posts done

Well, I can say for this; if you are doing a review of The Wealthy Affiliate; stick to that. You don't want to have potential customers getting confused. And it would sort of look bad. If you are doing a review of The Wealthy Affiliate and putting other Affiliates.

Now, I will say here; and I am just going to say; I am trying to help a Member doing a Review of The Wealthy Affiliate.

I would advise putting Wealthy Affiliate Links. I would advise for this. Don't put links to other Companies. Only to The Wealthy Affiliate.

Hope this helps? No Offense meant.

No offense taken Michael but I was only talking about WA affiliate links, I should have been more clear.

I am a bit confused and have a question about Duplicate content?

Is it ok to have Duplicate content on your own website and for it not to be the same as other websites? Or should you also have no Duplicate content on your own website and for it not to be the same as other websites too?

(Basically does Duplicate content apply for your own website or does it apply for all the other websites out there).

Also, it made me think, how does the Duplicate content checker actually work... Does it just check if your content is Duplicate from your own website or does it compare to see if your content is Duplicate against all websites.

Anyway, if anyone can help me out with this, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks for your help.

Brian.

Hi, that's a great question.

I recently made some research, because I was also confused about that. And I think lots of people have no idea how the duplicates content applies...

Anyway, based on what I know, the duplicate apply only from your own website.
If you write a content similar to another one on your website, Google will not index it, as Google will consider the first one as the original.

But if you write an article similar to another one from another website, Google won't rank it, as Google will consider that you aren't providing any value, but you're just submitting something that already exists.

I think the duplicate checker here at WA checks if your content is similar to any article on the internet. That's how it works.

It wouldn't make any sense to check only duplicate content from your own website.

Hope it helps.

Cheers

Hey there Warly10,

Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate it.

Also, I have continued researching this question myself and found that Google actually doesn't like it if you have duplicate content on your own website or others.

I found the answer here, where Kyle answers the question, plus there is a link to Google, actually defining what they see as duplicate content themselves, and its the same answer. But thanks for replying to my question. It is much appreciated.

Thanks,

Brian.

That is a huge range of audience. I don't know I think I 'll go for the "Laid Off Employees" because of the economic effect of the Pandemi Covid-19 many have lost the jobs and looking for new opportunity also could be "Low Salary Employees" who looking for passive/extra income to improve their lives. Any suggestions!

That was not an easy TASK.
I could not for the life of me, put in KEYWORDS.
I'll restudy the earlier lesson on SEO and keywords and such.
and come back to this exercise. I must admit I was a bit GLIB
and "KNOW BEST" while on that earler lesson.
Thanks for this work out. I did fall off the hoarse. I found my hat. I'll dust myself off and get back in the saddle.
