What is a keyword?

It is a word or a phrase that someone types into a search engine. People use words or phrases to find things they are looking for online and there are BILLIONS of keywords out there.

As an affiliate marketer and here within Wealthy Affiliate, you are going to become an expert with keyword research and coming up with search terms that people type into search engines.

Here is a birds eye view of the process of SEO, from keyword to the money.

Importance of Keywords to Your Business

Keywords are instrumental in your business, they are the starting point of all of your rankings & traffic. Whether you are attempting to rank in search engines for FREE (through search engine optimization) or paying for traffic through pay-per-click, keywords are YOUR WAY of capturing highly relevant and engaged visitors to your website.

As an example, let's say that I am looking for the best affiliate marketing training online. I would most likely type in:

You could, in theory, target this very keyword with a page/post on your website and then rank for it in Google. When you get ranked in Google, your post will show up within the natural search results.

These are natural, SEO rankings. This would lead to traffic (people coming to your website) and then you could make such recommendations, like Wealthy Affiliate and earn commissions as a result.

That is how search engine optimization works, initially we are going to be teaching you how to get ranked through SEO (for FREE) but down the road in bootcamp you are going to learn how you can drive traffic to your website through paid avenues, like PPC and Facebook Ads.

What Tools Do You Need to Find Keywords

There are many keyword and research tools on the market. I have used pretty much all of them over the years, from Google's in house keyword tool to expensive keyword research platforms out there. None of them provided the data that I needed!

I found that most ended up providing useless, and often times, very inaccurate information.

Introducing Jaaxy, an Affiliate and Internet Marketers dream research platform. Not only does it capture the data you need about a keyword, it does it in a very efficient manner.


DISCUSS VIDEO: Keyword Mastery, Keywords Are the Foundation of Your Success

Task 1: Research and Find 5 Keywords Relating to Your Niche

When you get a grasp for keyword research, you are truly going to be in a position where you have TOO MANY keywords and not enough time. That is a good position to be in.

When starting out though, it might feel as though there is some sort of keyword scarcity. This feeling usually dissipates when you sit down to start performing some keyword research within your given target audience.

Again, each post you publish on your website is going to target a specific keyword. Then as you build out content targeting that keyword, you will start to get rankings, which leads to traffic and ultimately the driving force of your revenue.

START BROAD, Narrow Down.

My tendency is to start broad, and narrow down to something more specific. For example, I can search a term like "affiliate" in Google, and come up with a lot of ideas before I even commence my research in a keyword tool like Jaaxy.

When you type any term into Google, they offer you "Google Instant" results meaning that they will show you predictive results based on what you are typing. This is an incredible way to find new keywords.

Let's quickly look at the "affiliate" example. If you type this phrase into Google, it is going to give you a bunch of instant, predictions.

One search, I already have FOUR new ideas that I could plug into Jaaxy.

  • affiliate marketing
  • affiliate programs
  • affiliate definition
  • affiliate marketing canada

I can then continue typing and I will get more Google Instant predictive results.

I have another FOUR ideas, that I could now plug into Jaaxy. These terms are getting more narrow, and more targeted which is what we are after here.

I can then keep going. In this case, I am going to type out "affiliate marketing training". Here are the results in Google.

As you can see, another FOUR terms.

By typing literally THREE words into Google, I have come up with 12 brand new keyword ideas. These are keywords that I can then plug into Jaaxy and completely my keyword research.

To complete your research and derive AWESOME keywords, it is important though that you understand what type of keywords you are after here.

The 3 Criterion Your Keywords Must Meet

There are 3 qualifying factors for SEO when it comes to keyword research in Jaaxy or using the WA Keyword Tool. It isn't overly complex, so don't overthink these by any means.

You are going to be looking at traffic, competition and whether or not the keyword actually makes grammatical sense.

  1. Keyword must get SOME traffic. Ideally you will choose a keyword that gets over monthly searches.
  2. Under 100 QSR (Competition). This is ideal for a newer website, but as you start to build out your site it is completely fine to target keywords that are under 200 QSR.
  3. The keyword must make sense. If the keyword phrase could not be used in a proper sentence, then chances are you shouldn't use it. It must be grammatically correct.

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

You can see I have entered "affiliate marketing training" into the search (as shown below).


If it meets this criteria, then you are good to go and this keyword is a winner. Let's look at a sample search here in Jaaxy I did for "affiliate marketing training".

As you can see, one simple search has yielded many keywords that fit this criteria.

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

You are going to be creating all of your posts moving forward based on the premise of keywords. Each page or post on your website will be targeting a brand new keyword and through time and as you build out your website, this can lead to an incredible amount of traffic and revenue.

The main point that I am getting from the article is that your audience really needs to be a segment of the population the potentially has an interest in affiliate marketing. The first site had a greater focus on interests, hobbies etc. and the basics of Word Press. Boot Camp has a greater focus on the "making money" end of things. This is just my perception however. It takes a good bit of thinking to decide your target audience.

Hello. ok. I need some clarification.

Do you get the name for your site based on the kwywords you decide to use?

And I am running into a brick wall on thinking about how I can promote WA except to write a review comparing it to the other program I am a member of. But even with that I don't have a site name and can't think of one.

I would like people to find WA though and have them connect with a program that really does work. I know it does. But I am not sure how I am going to get past this brand name/website name stuff.

Hi Jessica,

I just recently asked the same question and what they said was the domain needs to be short and something people can remember. It is the keywords and title in your post I think will get people to find you offering Wealthy Affiliate as a solution.

I think i am right but you might want to get a few other peoples comments.Good luck with it.

Not sure i will articulate my question right, but here we go, is domain name and niche the same thing? for example i want to promote WA so i want the word affiliate in my domain name, is that good enough as my website direction or i need to narrow it down? hope that makes sense

Marcus WFHW Premium
Hi Manila,

Don't worry...your question makes perfect sense :)

First of all, if you've decided to recommend WA then I suggest you take a look at the affiliate bootcamp training. It's similar to the Online Entrepreneur Certification training, but it is more specific about targeting audiences who might have an interest in what WA has to offer. Here's the link to the training: Regarding your domain name, it would ideally need to be linked to the nature of your niche, and including "affiliate" would therefore be a good idea. In the bootcamp training you will see Kyle's example where he also has "affiliate" in his domain.

I will just add that you don't necessarily have to include "affiliate" in the title of your domain name as it depends on the overall angle of your website.

For example, I recommend WA on one of my websites but my domain includes the words "work from home" and doesn't include "affiliate". That's because I am targeting people who are looking for ways to work from home online.

The bootcamp training expands on this a great deal and will help you to focus on a specific segment of a more general niche, making your domain name choice a lot easier.

Hope this helps for now, Manila!

Hello, I like the like idea of building a lifestyle around affiliate marketing and was wondering if I'm on the right track with my niche: Remote work lifestyle. I want to target people who desire the ability to choose what time they wake up and work from anywhere, whether it be from a bed, a cozy coffee shop or a private island.

I think I can narrow it down and make it funny with something catchy like: "I wake up when I want" or "I work from bed" but I'm worried about it not being specific enough or not SEO friendly.

What do you think?

If you're looking for a title for your website, I like your funny names. "I work from bed" would certainly catch my attention xD You can always use the website Tagline to enter an SEO friendly description of what your website will offer.

The "work from anywhere" niche is fairly saturated (with lots of scams out there as well) but is an "evergreen" niche and if your content is well written and informative and you apply your keywords and all the training from WA correctly, this can work for you!

I can already see that you're an "out of the box" thinker, so if you apply this to your content you can bring readers another spin on the "work from anywhere" niche rather than the same blah-blah and empty promises that are available on most other "work from anywhere" opportunity blogs.
Once Google notices your uniqueness and authoritativeness, you will have no problem ranking on Pg1 in Google. And then you will start seeing the traffic and the $ increasing.

The training will show you the best way to apply all the SEO principles to your website and content.

Just my thoughts. Hope this helped.

@WandavdH Awesome, thank you for your feedback and fantastic advice. I couldn't agree more, I want to do something different and set myself apart from the other people doing the same thing in the remote lifestyle space. Not sure exactly what that looks like yet but I'm optimistic and have a few ideas brewing :)

Your insight helped very much, liked and followed ;)

I've also started the same way and after a week I decided to get involved on the Affiliate side for the same reason as you. If your instincts tells you that than you should listen to it. You won't regret it. I am now ready to be in a good position to expose my referral link to the world and make money. Don't worry though that it seems you're redoing the training. You'll go through it swiftly as you've learned what to do during the first part.

You can go back and do this at any time.

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

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

I appreciate the training on writing reviews. I have one big, glaring question ... how can I give a "real" review of a product I have not personally used? To me, it seems that if I haven't used a product then I'm not qualified to review it. On the other hand, I don't necessarily want to buy everything I intend to sell. Any suggestions?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can review products without buying them, in an ideal situation you would own every product but there are circumstances where this isn't cost efficient or necessary.

There are many reviews on Amazon itself (if it is an Amazon product), within forums, other websites, product information, discussion boards, the actual product website, etc that you can leverage to offer a thorough, informative, truthful, and highly engagement review for your audience for just about any product you can imagine.

It all comes down to doing your research and this is part of the process when writing any content, whether it be for a review or whether it is for a product/service or a generic sort of article.
Reply
MozMary Premium
if you really know and understand a product and you see someone selling something there usually is an opportunity to explore it, test it, read their literature and you sort of know straight away how it measures up in the market - what sort of value they are offering with that product

the problem only comes if someone reviews something they haven't researched and don't really know about, and those bluff reviews are easy to spot

I for one think it is a good idea. I am one of those people who never used social media very much and I definitely had a learning curve with all the different ones. And, I'm still learning.

It would be nice to find one place where well done tutorials are done for the different social medias. I've had to go here, there and everywhere searching for good training all in one place.

Many people just starting out also don't engage in social media and building their businesses will be the first time really getting involved with it.

Hi,
I am building my website and in the training it shows you what to do with a free website. I bought a domain,and am not sure if i do the other 3 steps listed under the free website? In step 2 I put in my domain name i bought.

Another question is was I suppose to click anything else when I bought the domain?Right now on the site manager it says the name of my domain ,and it says "no website wordpress install".Is that how it should be, or should i click on" install website"(i do not know what I am doing)?

I have the same issue, but I realized that It's because I did not move my siterubix.com domain to my new domain has yet. I started out with two websites, one for my niche and one for WA Bootcamp affiliate program. I click on the move button in site manager to move my niche siterubix.com to my purchased domain , but my other website for the WA program is not moved yet so it is still saying "no wordpress website installed" but it is just a matter of pressing the move button in site manager after I build out some more content on the siterubix.com version. I hope this helps

Reply
MelanieP72 Premium
Hey there - not sure if this is the right answer but I find that it is far easier to write a good honest review if you have actually tried the product yourself. At worst if you know someone who you trust has used something and they rave about it then that is the next best thing. But I think honesty is definitely a key. Don't leave a review on something you haven't tried out yourself.
Hope that helps!
Good luck!

When I think about "refining" my brand I think about the frustration I've experienced in learning the internet. It is not "intuitive" to me, at least not the marketing aspect of using the internet. I relate well to people of all ages, so I don't want to needlessly restrict myself. However, I think I might like helping people who have found the internet as "esoteric" as I have.

HELP - I am just about done with the 1st post for the AFFILIATE BOOTCAMP course and then I read in lesson nine that in month 1, one must have between 5-10 posts and then again in month 3 about 30+ posts and bunches more thereafter.

My question is: What do I write about in all those posts if I want to concentrate on marketing the WA product ?
Reply
MozMary Premium
that's why they say choose a niche you love, because you have to learn your niche, and it's easier to learn about something interesting

basically get to know whatever aspect of the WA product you are promoting - you know the way it is about people - when they like something and know all about it then they just won't shut up, they talk about it all the time, everything they do seems to give them an excuse to talk even more - that's the way we get with our websites :)

but it's a good test for you as to whether this niche is for you or if another subject works better - jump in first and see if you like it - it can be quite addictive

Hello, looking for some advice please. I completed the initial training just over a week ago and I posted about it. A few people told me to make sure I do the Affiliate bootcamp training as well, as it was well worth while.

Thing is I've just started to have a look at it and I'm not sure whether I should be doing this at the same time as developing my original blog. It certainly looks like a great thing, but I'm worried about taking my off the ball of the original website before it has started getting good amounts of traffic and conversions.

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

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

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. :)

Is the direction for my business "Making Money while Traveling" Too Broad and competitive?

Yes your country is supported and web business is not only related to your country, it is worldwide. So, sure you are eligible to do this business.
First of all, you need to think how to drive visitors/traffic in your website. Once you get visitors, such as more than 1000 visitors per month, then you can apply with advertisement network like Google Adsense, Media.net and so on for free of cost. They will give you the code which you need to add in your website to display ads. Then they will find out the suitable ads for your website automatically and pay you for displaying their ads on your website. Similarly, you can sell your own products from your website or you can apply to a company like Amazon.com to sell the products through your website and get a commission for each sale.
It will at least take 4-5 months to start earning from your own website. But, it depends how much time you can give per day. If you can give more than 8 hours a day for this business, even you can earn within a month.
If you don't have Paypal, then you can get money through bank wire transfer. That is available in every country in every bank.
Everything has been explained in the Wealthy Affiliate course which is very easy to understand. So, I suggest you to keep on taking Wealthy Affiliate lessons by clicking “Get Started Here/Certification“ green bar on the left-hand side menu of Wealthy Affiliate. At the end of those lessons, there are some tasks which you need to complete. Move step by step from lesson 1 without skipping any lessons or tasks. I repeat, without skipping any lessons or tasks. If you move in that way, soon you will understand the system of WA and even will start to build your online business.

I'm writing "About Me," in the content, can I mention Wealthy Affiliate and how it has changed my life or will I stick to my domain name? Not sure, yet, how this works. Please help - thank you.

Mentioning your association with WA on your website requires an affiliate disclosure, per FTC regulations. Also, if you create a post containing your WA affiliate link you will also need to also have an affiliate disclosure above your link. Google 'affiliate disclosure' for a full breakdown on placement and what the FTC requires in regards to affiliate links and affiliate success stories.

Hi, I feel like my site is not ready to publish the review.
In my review, if I publish it, does the link take them to my website or to the WA website?
Also, I would like to change the picture on my theme. When will there be training on that.or should I just try to do it.?
I am very excited about all the possibilities. Thank you for making this possible for me.
I appreciate you,
Daisy

If you add your affiliate link within your review, and publish it, then it will take them to WA.

Regarding changing the theme...

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.

I installed my menu/pages at the top. They are all in alphabetical order. For the most part that's great, but how do I get the Home page to be the first page on the left?

Also, I have the privacy policy on one of my sites, but it's not showing on the others. Please advise. Thanks so much.

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

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

If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche", go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

Hope this helps you out here Mary!

I want to get started ASAP & I have some people that I want to help get started. Is this easy for seniors that are not that computer savy to be able to earn money. Once we upgrade for $19. to premium we have to keep paying $49./mo to stay at premium. Ok as long as we earn at least that amount in the beginning. I am very close to the vest with finances and would like to get to $300./day = $9000./mo ASAP so I can accomplish my other goals with Modular Built Homes. I want to help my sister in NM to earn at least $70/day or $2100.+/mo, but of course I want her to triple that with time. Do they have to say that LouisFlaco1 sent them to get commissions or how does that work. I have a ton of seniors that are struggling that I can reach on a daily(5 days/week) by going to senior centers all over SoCal. I came here because I got scammed by Money Sucking Websites that said I could earn $500./day or $15K/mo from day 1. They never called me back to give me a user name or password. I got the charge reversed & when I did a review you came up as a legit company. I sure hope you are the answer to my prayers as I will put in the time to make this sublime. I will most likely upgrade to premium real soon. Lou

Kyle Premium
Yeah, it is $19 first month, then $49 per month for a premium membership. There is also a yearly option, that is $359 for the entire year (works out to be $29 per month).

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!

Working on wording for my niche idea. Paying off college dept and still supporting a family. Living better then paycheck to paycheck. For me this is an important topic as I am just graduating and dread the amount I have to pay for my student loans. Currently my husband and I with our 3 daughters live in my dad's basement just to keep cost down with the extra school payments that I am going to be making.

Absolutely the direction that you can head.

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.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

I've built my WA promotional site as https://www.learn-to-earn-online.com
I'm a bit worried this might be too generic.
One target audience I want to attract is ex-military Veterans, being one myself.
I intend to build a site based around this but I'd be interested to know how posting veteran related content on my generic learn-to-earn site might pan out.
I feel this site might be good to promote offline, for example, giving people business cards or leaflet dropping, as we should be promoting WA offline too.
Any thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated :-)

what I love about this platform, Rich is that you get so many ideas.

I know of someone who actually created a meet-up at his local coffee shop. You could put up fliers where you think veterans would see it, find a place you can conduct a meeting for free or at low cost, and then just talk about Wealthy Affiliate and have a video to show.

There really is no one-size-fits-all approach here.

Here's a great video that may come in handy:

Hi Pedro,

I see you're getting right into like me. I'm also at that point of my training, but don't worry about being confused or lost. Your questions will be answered even if I don't have the answer for it.

One thing that I have done to stop the confusion is to go back to the lesson that you started with that got you to where you're at and see if you missed or overlooked something. It happens, so don't feel as if you're not getting it.

It is a lot of info to take in, but in time you will start to see it unfold and the ideas will become clear to you. The ideas that you have sound great and with a little bit of guidance from the lessons that are laid out for us to follow should really put you on track.

I wish i could be the one recommending to you where to go from here, but I too am in your position and all I can do is share the experience that I'm going through while I'm learning here in WA.

It's truly a great platform and you will gain tons of knowledge from it if you take it in bits and pieces and give yourself a break to process it all. It's a process and you'll have to also demonstrate that to your visitors, clients, followers or who ever you bring in through your website. You will set the example for them as you progress in your journey.

I hope you find the answer you're looking for Pedro. Much success to you and hope you overcome any obstacles that come your way. Because they can all be overcome with patience and determination.

Best to you Pedro

Hello Darksniper,

Thanks for your comment, but I'll have to say that other members would agree with your response because once you start to take notice of how this community comes together, it's a no-brainer. You're either in here to succeed or not. It's really that simple.

The one thing that dragged me down when I was in other internet marketing systems was support. Most systems just want to send you to outdated videos and keep you waiting long enough to have an excuse not to refund your money.

WA is a godsend to me and I'm not going to let this one go by. You mention that you need to make this work, right Darksniper? well, if you have the desire to want to learn and become successful from the work you put into it, there is no reason why you couldn't make this work for you.

I too have a daughter who said to me a few weeks ago, "daddy, I wish you had a business here at home" that struck a nerve in a way that it put me into action. I translated her comment as "I miss you and want to see you when I come home from school. Why can't you work in a place that will allow you to be home more often?"

I too, have to make this work and I'm determined to make it work. It's not wishful thinking, it's not a thing that only a few special people have a knack for doing, you don't have to have a full-time job or a money to do it. There are many ways to make things work. One just needs to have the desire and determination to make it happen.

I'm sure it will happen for you too Darksniper. Wishing you the best success and hope you overcome any obstacles that try to deter you from your goals.

Be safe,

Rick

Hi Theresa,
I'm glad you're enjoying WA
We all tend to overthink a little bit, don't worry.

The easiest way to do this is...
Write down what you wanna do, and jump in with both feet!

Just like when you wanna go somewhere,
Don't worry about the red lights...
The obstacles don't even register in your thinking process
You just know you'll get there... eventually

Along the way, we all have to adjust the route
So, Try to stay focus on what you want to do
As you go, the journey becomes clearer and easier

You're a Designer, an Artist, A Painter. You're A Sculptor
Just get your fingers in the mud and enjoy yourself

This will not be your only canvas
This is not the only clump of clay you'll play with

What I'm saying is,
Stick to the Training and apply the principles as you learn
And You will create a work of art soon enough

Ask every question you can muster
And Continue asking for assistance
We're all here for each other

We got your back! :)

So, the question is, i am thinking of buying my own domain and start first by promoting WA by sharing all my experiences learning and starting all from zero knowledge to what i know now..

Previously, I was thinking of buying my own domain and name it after my own name because in the long run, i am planning to make it like my journal and put everything there because i am pretty interested in so many things like relationships, health, making money, and the list goes on.

so yeah there's the previous plan of using my full name (it'll be roxanneabejuela.com , just in case) as my domain but i have read a lot of comments here in WA to get started with a specific name of the website pertaining to what really is your niche or the so-called "keyword" specific domain (thanks and shout out to Alan Hocking!), if you get what i mean.

Your suggestion would really mean a lot. Thank you so much!

I understand i should be creating a blog to promote WA. should this program be promoted only on "Make Money Online Niche" or would it be appropriate on sites for eg in Health & Fitness as well.

Also know my target audience would be persons in retirement or approaching retirement, or persons who have high level of dissatisfaction with their current jobs and lifestyle.

Your niche can be anything you want it to be and you can still promote WA. You can let people know how you got started with your online business and explain that it was WA where you learned how to build your own online business.

Don't focus on only one marketing tools, You should use all those tools in conjunction with each other. Use every market tool available to you because all of them will help you build traffic along with having great content.

Are you asking how to use keywords?

My first website is intended to help newcomers to an online business by coming through WA. I write content about things that have been problem issues to me or other marketers so they will be able to avoid those pitfalls.

Therefore, I believe that everyone is my target market just as Kyle's article (Target Audiences for Wealthy Affiliate). But, he indicates we should go in a specific direction.

I guess that is where I may need help because I don't understand why we can't target to all audiences?

You can target all people, but the "theme" of your website (helping people start an online business) has to be more specific.

As you build out your website, you are going to be able to promote all sorts of things and you are also going to be able to promote and MANY topics that you will be able to cover on your website.

I'll tell you why - much of what I have learnt since I've been here is not so much the training that I have done on my own but to a large degree it is the questions that others have asked. This prompted me to follow for the answers and also to do some searching.

You never know when you'll be asking a question that others are wanting the answer to as well. So in essence you are not only do yourself a favour by asking but you are potentially helping others out at the same time.

Good for you and get those questions rolling!

All the best,

Brian

Let me try again. Proceeding nicely through lessn 2...completed the tutorial in 2 and then somehow got to lesson 3 and proceeded to build my site...realizing my or the system error tried to get back to 2 but to no avail....that's the first question....the second is how do I move around this site effectively not wasting time in searching, leaving messages, and waiting for answers in the interests of my time and trying to grasp all information as quickly as possible.

Thanks for you replies....I've left messages over the last hour on various locations of this site. I need help

Hello Bob and welcome to WA.

At the end of the lesson there is the option to go back to the previous lesson (see the attached screen shot).

Sometimes it takes a little while for people to read the notifications before they respond. One of the ways that you can navigate quite easily is to use the search bar at the top. Just type in a word related to what your query is and there'll be a list of options for you to choose from.

Another thing that you can do if you need to is use the live chat option which is still available to you. You should see it streaming on the right of the screen. There's bound to be someone there who will be able to assist you quickly and easily.

All the best,

Brian

I thinking if this could be 1 effective niche:

Online Marketing Newbies

I want to help interested people who doesn't know a thing or two about the business specially people in my country (Philippines) who can't afford those expensive online courses.

I'm open to any suggestions and it would be excellent.

Everyone gets so excited when they first get onboard. Been there done that. Take a deep breath, slow down. Navigate the site. Pick your type of business weather it be your own niche or the affiliate program. The greatest thing about the training is you have a choice of reading the training or watching the videos or both. Kyle does a great job of taking you through the step by step lesson. There are many programs out there that fall way short on training, and that's where we get so frustrated and leave. Lets not forget the up sells that you have to have, thousands of dollars later.

So I created my Wealthy Affiliate Review and it is telling me that my content is not unique. I did not copy anything and spent all day writing it so I don't get it. Is it because I'm doing the review on wealthy affiliate. The only thing that would not be unique is the fact that I'm speaking of them and talking about there services. So not too sure what to do here.

Hi Darla, sometimes it's best to make sure that it is saved to draft then log out of content and try again. You might even find that logging out of WA and then back in does the trick. This has happened to me before.

the important boxes are 1. home title, 2. home description and 3. scroll down and 'enable' keywords, which is in the training

after that there is an option under home description to do home keywords which Kyle doesn't really bother with as far as I remember, it could be any keywords, if you bother

as for your post keywords, do you know where to put them? title and first paragraph, don't worry about it so much after that

Hi! I just have one small question:

I was entering some keywords on Jaaxy and then Googling them. Even though Jaaxy shows low competition for the specific keyword, but when enter it in Google, it finds 10s or even 100s of millions of results, which looks kind of discouraging.

Would Jaaxy be the tool to trust? I'm just wondering if I have chances of making my post anywhere on the first page (or first 2-3 pages) on Google. Because according to Jaaxy, the keyword that I targeted has QSR < 100, while Google gives me 10s of millions of results for that keyword search.
Reply
Zappades Premium
For accurate search in Google you need to put the keyword inside "........", like, "keyword" and search.
Reply
gnag1995 Premium
Thank you! :)

I tested one the keywords one of my posts that was indexed. Even though quotation marks do their job, I got around 408 000 results, although the QSR of my keyword is just above 100. I wonder if there's anything else I need to do?

Alright, so basically we should do what we've learned in the past lessons. First we need to build trust on our website. To do so we need to get as many comments and shares on our website as possible. It's also recommended to go over SEO trainings made by Jay (check live video classes to find replays).

That's what I could find.

Feeling relieved now...

gnag1995 Premium
P.S. It's so awesome that you can check replays for all the video trainings that Jay conducted. :)

From my understanding, when you research a keyword in Jaaxy the 'competiton' means the number of web pages that have that exact keyword in the TITLE. when you search Google, the results show every instance that the string of words appears on the WWW, and even if they appear on a page more than once, every occurrence is counted.

By the way, in one of the training sessions I did with Jay, he showed us that when a huge number of results is returned in Google searches, it's not really what it appears to be. if you check deep enough into the pages, you would realize that there are really not that many results. Just to be sure I just seached in Google for 'women's baskeball shoes' and the results showed 4,100,000. However, there are actually only 17 pages with 10 results each, totaling 170.

Hopes this reduces your doubts about keyword searches.

Hi Everyone,

I have already completed the first level of training and am in the process of writing a review for WA within the Bootcamp. I found WA a week ago and am already hooked! I have had a week off work as an HR Advisor and final feel I have found something that will allow me the kind of lifestyle I have always dreamed of!

Basically - I don want to go back to work, but as i am not yet making money, alas I will have to - for now!

Can anyone share with me their experiences and how quickly they managed, and how much time they needed to spend around a full time job getting it off the ground and able to quit their full time job?

Thanks in advance

You can certainly accomplish any level of success online
that you are willing to work for!

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kyle/blog/if-i-work-at-this-8-hours-per-day

Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!

I am in it for the long haul and I am not shy of hard work - I enjoy it. I am enjoying this so much that on my week off I have been spending almost 8 hours a day going through the training and building my sites.. !

This is what I want to be doing long term, it’s going to be tough going back to my usual 9 to 5 after this experience but I’ll continue to give this everything and look forward to the day I can kiss the office goodbye! :)

Hi Christina,

This sounds like a direction of something that you are interested in and a great niche, Just keep following the lessons and the tasks. You can go back to them anytime they are always available to you even when you have completed them. You can also check out the Live Video Classes to find information on leading you in the right direction as well. Maybe you could also just say moms earn extra income with your own online business.
We are all here to help one another be successful and are always happy to help one another. You can always go back to any of your lessons for help as well. Keep asking questions and do not give up keep working at it and following your lessons and tasks and you will have your website up and running and looking great. Your website is going to evolve as you go throw the lessons and the tasks. If you follow along with the lessons and do the tasks in each lesson your site is going to be just what you want it to be and don't forget if you need someone to look at your site to help give you some feedback and maybe some tips and tricks you only have to ask.
Best of luck!

lol you may have dialled down that niche VERY tightly! Mom's with empty nests and empty retirement funds would have lots of categories that you could include eg divorcees, divorcees who were left for a younger woman, and empty nesters who just want more money to supplement their retirement

maybe start with a free site and when you get writing your posts and doing up your menu you'll see how much you can write in a particular direction

Hey everyone.
My mind is also kind of Jammed when it comes to choosing the brand for my self.
But I am more into:
● Fashion and Clothing(Like Vans , Adidas and more clothing)
● Teaching people how to Make money for themselves without depending on any boss ( which is here at WA by referring them)
●Online Business Success
●Travelling without stressing about money . (While they will learn how to make it here)
●Becoming your own Boss without Having to sacricice your mornings for 9/5 work.

So I really don't know which one to start with. So can anybody please cleanse my mind with a piece of advice?

Real Estate Investors had recently caught my attention prior to joining Wealthy Affiliates here. So.. Heres what i came up with

2. Brand - Real Deal Real Estate

So, I worked on the first ten lessons just getting started, and decided to get right into Affiliate Bootcamp lessons.
I'm not sure what to choose for my Brand Direction.
I wanted to market WA, however i'd like to be involved in affiliate marketing with the companies that allow you to do that and make money, also. I'm just getting started, and I "can't connect the dots" just yet to be able to answer their questions when you go to join their affiliate program.
Am I just getting ahead of myself here for right now, this early in the process?
I certainly don't want to skip any steps. Just trying to find out how to start earning while I am still training.
If I'm trying too much too soon, someone please tell me and give me some advice.

ok, I appreciate the info.
I kinda figured it'd be too soon for that at this time.
I'm not too spiffy on the computer business yet, but some of the training thus far has given me some good ideas.
So, I'll just keep up the training and I'm thinking as soon as I upgrade to premium, that would open up more ideas as well.

My thought for a direction is helping people generate income that want to live in an RV and travel the continent. I've seen many vague articles one starting your own business but never fleshed out.

there's certainly a huge audience for RVs globally, check to see what others are doing in this niche and where you think your audience is, also look into affiliate programs for it, google rv affiliate programs see what comes up, then there's all sort of accessories

you are currently in bootcamp though so hop over to the entrepreneur course for this niche, and remember to use the free sites to start off the training while you consider your niche

I really need help setting my direction because I have changed niches so many times in the last 4 months trying to see what I can do well and what makes money. Well I haven't done either for anything I have done so far. I haven't even been able to finish any of the 7 websites I've started because Wordpress is just so darn hard! I like the internet marketing niche, but feel so put off by it right now because I have fallen into so many scams. But something that I really like is technology: having the latest gadgets, the incredible creativity that goes into building software and apps. I love the company Apple for its philosophy of innovation and freedom and creativity. And basically what I want to do is to create or find things that help make people's lives easier. This can be technology or something that I found on amazon the other day that is an alarm clock in a rug that won't turn off until you get up from bed. Those are the kind of products that I love to find and would love to share with people to make their lives easier. So is that a direction? Finding and creating products to make people's lives easier?
Reply
Zappades Premium
Actually, I think every new product should somehow make peoples life easier.
Our websites as well should be in the end something helping people find a solution for problems that make their life hard.

I am afraid if you really tried 7 different niches in six months you will not be able to see any success.

I'm on my third now during a year but now I want to stick to it for at least 12 months.

I think I already see better results after three months than with the first one.

Of course, the choice of a good niche is very important.

I think the new niche you chose can be a success if you stick with it. You can do that if you are passionate about it and keep working even you don't see any money results right away.

The best way to find Your actual niche is to find your Target Audience. Because this way you will aim your content to the group of people you wish to give value to. Value is a powerful key factor in making success in life overall.

This can also be seen as the "Golden Circle effect". - What - How - Why.

The Target Audience training can be found here: And was originally posted in Phase 1 / Lesson 3.

Let me know if you have trouble to grasp the concept (because I sure did!)

Lastly, good luck with your endeavours,

have you thought of doing youtube reviews on the products that excite you?

your reason for not doing the internet marketing niche didn't add up for me - you've fallen into so many scams, but you are not in a scam now and you've got great past experience so sounds like you have research done already in this but it doesn't actually excite you? Best to go with what you love. Btw @RICH failed in a bunch of niches starting off but was making $100k a month a few years later, so it's not about failing to find a perfect niche in the beginning...give yourself time to go through the training

I tried to re-download it by searching for the plugin in the search bar, but it takes me to a page that explains only premium members can add new plugins.

How can I resolve this?

The All In One SEO plugins should already be installed by default to all the websites here at WA.

Just for clarification, In your WordPress editor, navigate to Plugins then Installed Plugins.

If you don't see it listed there then, as a starter member, you would have to delete the site and create a new one.

To delete the site, go to the SiteRubix SiteManager, click the details button then scroll all the way to the bottom and you will see the delete button there.

It doesn't matter if your post title is the not same as your keywords, right?

I come think because you input keywords in the SEO settings.
I tried to search online using the keywords I like but the number one site shown doesn't have the same title as the keywords I typed in google.
Reply
BrianCh Premium
Hi Frank, your keyword does not necessarily have to be in your title verbatim (exactly) but you must definitely use it in the meta description when you do the SEO settings.

Do a test for yourself. When you type in a search on Google and you see that the title doesn't have the same keyword that you typed in you will notice that it is somewhere in the description just below the title.

Also if you do a search and you put your keyword in " " this will usually yield the exact results.

All the best,

I want to have a website name geared towards college students that will also be a marketable name on platforms like instagram. I'll leave by website name ideas below and please comment which one is most marketable :)

In my humble opinion, I like the Debt Free Affiliate. If u could get http://debtfreeaffiliate.com that, I think, would be very marketable. However, that is just a thought!

Okay, I'll explain further. For my site to have the feel I want, I will need team members (part of the community here at WA) with pictures, perhaps testimonials and a LOT more knowledge to guide new members

. Obviously, new members will have all I wish I could put on my site when they join WA. I guess I will just have to learn enough about WA, informational wise, to sell my site.

What sold me was my drive. Not everybody thinks this way.

Make sense?

Realistically speaking, I will concentrate on my training before I can make a guesstimate as to how many leads I can draw.

I have just finished my first 2 sites, after much, aggravation. That is to say, it's quite early for me to think about that. Just to answer, I would like at least 200 to start within one month of launching my site......

I am glad to inform the community that I just have completed the first phase of Bootcamp training. I was a bit stuck towards the end when I reached lesson 9. I had to watch the video several times to be able to post the article I prepared! I still have a lot of work to do to refine the post and add some features to make it more attractive as I proceed with the training!

Rewatching videos is a great way to embed the learning in your head. I make notes when I watch them the first time. Then when I rewatch them I can fix the bits I mixed up and add the bits I missed.

Great work on finishing phase one.

I say don't overcomplicate things for yourself in the beginning or get hung up on a website domain name. Just choose anything that you believe describes what you'll be talking about and put it on there. Or you could put 'your name...' and whatever you'll be talking about. For example: 'Nick-makesmoneyonline.com' etc.

You won't be just making one website or business in your entire affiliate/internet marketing career. The quicker you get out there and start seeing how things are done the more motivated you'll be to keep going.

I would avoid using "-" in your domain name, but yes, great advice here.

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.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

Hi Kyle thanks for that. I agree with the "brandable" domain name rather than just focusing on keywords when creating it.

I want my niche to be living life positively , lots of quotes and speakers (may even be able to promote some speakers/authors products later) i want my website to attract the attention of those whose life isnt working out the way they planned, this will allow me to campaign on various platform etc ie unemployed, new mums not wanting to go back to work people looking for "something" i was thinking of my brand being "THRIVE"
am i heading in the right direction here? or am i still too broad? can anyone help?
Reply
Nick909 Premium
I think you are going in the right direction but its still a little too broad. You said "living life positively" and "isn't working out the way they planned". How isnt it working out the way they planned? In what? Do they need to get out of debt? Do they hate their job?

And if it's going to be specifically about 'making money online' then THRIVE is too broad because the term literally means abundance in everything. Somebody thriving is enjoying abundance in ALL life areas. Maybe something like 'NewMomsMakeMoney'? That's more niche specific and geared toward promoting WA. You could literally just slap a WA banner on the first page and show new moms how to make money from home.

And if you want to expand in the future to go more broad you could always do that. New Moms need diapers, baby bottles, baby formula etc. With their newfound online incomes they could now purchase these products/services from your new links promoting affiliate products all mom-related.

I'm thinking of promoting a book I wrote on line, published through Author House, which I believe are just a bunch of money hungry people who would publish gibberish to make a buck. Buck that's besides the point. the point is could I promote my book through my own web sight and then sell it on line. Just a thought I had. Of course I had it copy written before I went to them. Maybe I could get someone thoughts on this Idea.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes you can definitely promote your book along with many other things through your website.

What you promote at the end of the day is completely up to you, we are first going to be focusing on building out and establishing your brand/authority, and then from there we are going to be focusing on getting traffic,

Once you have traffic (people) coming to your website, the sky is the limit.

Hello every one I wan someone to explain me what is the exact meaning of choosing your direction that is naming your website. would it be generic or specific name? and how will I choose it i mean of course i would consider all the Jaxxy things but how will the niche rise in your mind so that it would be flawless idea for next steps. Thank you

There are many great niche ideas for promoting WA. You can run with a more common niche idea that is related to 'make money online' but there are many ways to narrow this down and many unique niche ideas that are perfect for promoting WA.

This article will give you some cool ideas: Yep, you want to choose a specific name for your website. In terms of choosing your site name/ domain name, I recommend going with something 'brandable'. Something that makes sense to your audience so they know what your site is about, and something that is memorable.

Hope this helps!

EOPolini Premium
Hi, I personally would go somewhat generic on the name, as long as it is brandable and memorable; I like to think short and catchy like Apple.com, which has nothing to do with computers. The reason is, there are many possible target audiences in the "make money" niche, such as young college students, stay at home parents, retirees, etc. Although you'd want to start narrow, there's no reason not to tackle them all as your authority site grows. Best wishes!

Nick909 Premium
I say forget about the idea of it being flawless and just go for something you like and break it down to it being niche specific. You might have to do a little brainstorming and choose several...narrowing it down to the one you like most with what you feel will give the best results.

And don't get so hung up on the website name. Honestly it could just be your name and whatever you'll talk about in the title. People want good content. If your content gives them an answer to their problem they couldn't care less about your website name. Just make sure it gives a clear description of what you're talking about though.

Thank You so much...

clarerubel Premium
Well, if you're "branding", what do you think will be memorable?

I chose my domain name by thinking of my website's purpose or overall result.

Since you're helping the public, what does your customer want to have. They want to "have" something which is why they read your blog or came to your site.

I think it's to be some kind of brand recognition. You can start with a symbol and then, name it.

These are my only ideas, so far. My friend wrote a book on Branding, but I haven't read it, yet.

Hey, I picked Van life Vegan as a niche. I am a vegan and I'm just starting out living in a vehicle. My target audience is health conscious explorers that enjoy minimalistic living. I'm questioning what to focus on in my jaxy searches. I could talk about so many things within the realm of living in a van or veganism, but im having trouble putting them together to solve a problem

Hi, interesting niche; you might want to focus on one or the other at first, just to narrow it down, with the vision of expanding your coverage later on. I would let the keywords guide you as to what people are searching for in these areas. Best wishes!

Hello everyone, I am new to WA and have no experience with online marketing (or any marketing for that matter). I have several ideas of direction/brand for possible websites for promoting WA, but I am wondering if it is advisable to try to start more than one at a time or if I should only start with one website and then try to expand later as that one gets going?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Hello, lovely WA friends,
Since English is not my mother language, I am kind of stuck at this stage of progress.
Am thinking, to start making money soonest, perhaps I can start making money while I am still struggling building my website by creating a landing page. Can anybody help me with your opinion?
Reply

First off, your English is quite good! You are going to be just fine and you only get better at something (like learning a language) one way, by practicing.

Also, if you understand the training you will be just fine. You can create your websites here at WA in any language that you want and market to any audience. :)

You are going to be just fine Ivonne! If you need a hand with anything going forward, let me know and I will give you a hand.

I have a question about the "Your Initial Framework Of Content" part of this training. I was wondering why we aren't recommended to use the "Auto Terms of Service and Privacy Policy" WordPress plugin that does this for you. Is it just because starter members cannot install WordPress plugins, or is there a good reason not to use this plugin that I am unaware of? I am planning on using this after I upgrade, unless there is some reason not to. Thank you all!

Ideally, you want to use as few plugins as possible since they can seriously bog down your site (make it run/load slower). So it's always good practice to find other solutions to simple stuff like this where possible.

These videos are absolutely wonderful! And, as someone who has some knowledge of digital marketing, I know the power of some of the tools being shown off here. With the right knowledge and a lot of hard work you can really turn this into something. With every passing video, I believe a little more...

I would like to ask though, the countdown for Vegas, does it count every time someone signs up for premium? Like if for some reason everyone just signed up for the $19 and then quit after the first month, would that count? Just trying to understand fully, because I really want to go on that trip!

Yes, so long as a free member signs up to become a premium member for at least one month, that counts!

So I love Gardening and using Essential Oil's. Those are the 2 that I have chosen to start with....Weather is another one but I am going hang back on that one for a little bit. The ideas for the others are easier. I am thinking I may need to change my site name....not the address as it is a thing. See I have 2 sites already built for both of these....but I want to make the 2 here kinda like sister sites. Where links from the other site points to these for an expansion on the information provided. Just about all of my current sites start with honeybee...it's the meaning of Melissa in Greek. So I am just trying to see if this is a good idea....

The essential oils website can be quite profitable because it is still a fairly young and desired niche. But you should be in the Certification Course for these niches and not Affiliate Bootcamp which is solely for the promotion of WA.

Hi, everyone!

My chosen niche is making money online. Someone just told me that there is a lot of competition in promotion of WA. Is there any suggestion on how can I deal with it? Should I focus on the way I of marketing? If promoting WA alone is not a good idea, what other products from "making money online" niche would you recommend promoting?

Your help is strongly appreciated.

P.S. Please, don't think that I'm in any sort of rush. I just want to get some information in advance, so I can start building my campaign strategy. As they say, forewarned is forearmed.

Best of luck with your ventures! I'm sure we'll all succeed!

Hi, you're wise :)
In fact, you chose a very competitive niche and a strongly promoted product.
This asks for a very good website made by you.
I believe there is always a way to be better than everyone else but for sure you'll need time to learn and get an authority in the niche.

I'd suggest you break down the niche a bit. MMO is in fact very very much floated on the internet.

Thank you for another feedback! For now, I decided to start with the affiliate marketing topic. So far, I just wrote a post about its basics.

Someone suggested me about learning other ways of making money online. That will probably be my next step, so I can cover tgese topics as well.

Best of luck in your endeavors!

Hi gnag, remember their is 3.5 billion on line looking for products and services. They say with marketing it takes a person about 7 times to be exposed to something before they decided to make a decision. So, a person may come across several affiliate programs before they come to your web-site while they decided to check it out and kick the tires. It is a numbers game. As you grow in your skills, your website will take on it's own personality that complements you. People are joining you and want to make a connection that speaks to them. Something in your story and how you project yourself to your audience will click that a person will make that choice to hop aboard.

There are so many other niches, you may want to diversify with other niches. When your ready as you learn your skills, and what you can afford in your marketing cost as you put back your investment back into your business. It will start paying for itself at some point.

For example, when you go into a store, a customer has several choices to buy items but all the profits go back to the store. The store will look at the numbers and make adjustments how to market some of the products that are not moving as fast. This is what your learning. Start with one product and as your confidence grows and the numbers look good to you then your ready add another and another then make adjustments.

It all boils down how much time, energy and expenses can you afford without spreading yourself too thin and staying focus. The WA program has done most of the hard work for you since they provide the training, tools and know how. No need to reinvent the wheel.

Hope that helps a little. Best of luck.

Kyle, this maybe a damn question but when the website is ready to post it goes on the internet with thousands of other members and competitors, right? related to that, IS THERE A SATURATION POINT where all of us are there and its a lottery type of situation who is going to get most of the attention??

Optimize your site using the training here at WA. You will find that your posts rise to the top of the rankings fairly quickly.

There are very few places on the internet that teach what you are learning here. There are certainly some keywords that will be difficult to rank for but most of the low hanging fruit keywords will rank readily enough.

The exception, of course, is the MMO niche. (make money online) In this niche, the competition knows what they are doing.

That's a good point, why it is hard to rank high in the MMO niche, I never thought of that lol.

Hi Anielka56, So lets think a little more outside the box. There are 3.5 billion people on the internet looking for various products and services and growing every day. We are talking about the world not a local market that your confined to. For example, in your field as a real estate agent the market can be competitive and saturated in a high demand area. Although, people are moving all the time for various reasons which makes your local market go up and down.

There is something like 1 million with WA at different levels in their journey. Some will procrastinate, some will do nothing other then a lot of thinking, some will get sidetracked and quite. Just human nature. A good example might be The Parable of the Sower in the Bible. Read Mark 4:1-20. This is what people do when given an opportunity. So how bad do you want your dream on this journey? Any journey has it's ups and downs as you go forward to succeed in your dream while you continue to persevere. This is a great community to get support and cheer you on in your journey.
