Ten months in at Wralthy Affiliate

Last Update: January 30, 2016

"If you do not change something today, the next five years of your life will be like the last five years."

I am ten months in now, like most still looking to reach page 1 with everything. I have gone ahead and built the site that I mentioned from last month, that works with my primary site below "TD Remodeling." I have taken the information that I have learned from here at WA and by using Jaaxy, the new sites are gaining ranking much faster than any of my other sites ever did.

I have learned the hard way as many are probably doing some of the same mistakes as I started with, when you pick a domain name, you need to choose one with good search results. When you select a business name for offline in your geographical area, you will need to work a lot harder at ranking your site by dealing with branding.

Typically my company name for what I do locally “TD Remodeling” works fine, but for an online business nobody normally searches the name. You require having a name already recognised when searching it if it's not a regular keyword.

My new websites have domain names that people already search, so they ranked page one as soon as I launched them.

The first new improved site I started with ten pages/posts and after three days ranked page 1 position 5. Pages/posts are ranked 1,2,3,3,4,4,5,6,7,7 with 112 impressions average page rank of 131.6 for total keywords.

Two weeks later with 14 pages/posts rank 1,2,3,3,4,5,5,6,6,7,8,8,12,12 with 364 impressions and average page rank of 101 for key words.

I launched a second site today to check out my domain theory, and the site has no pages/posts other than landing on the domain home page with an about page in the main menu and privacy policy which neither are indexed. The site is ranked page 2 position 15 for the first couple of hours after launching.

I also created a sub-domain website for people who subscribe to my monthly newsletter to get access to all my videos on how to do renovations which have a total of 70 pages/posts.

I'm still working full time even though winter is here now and I'll keep trying to get my websites together. I have a lot better direction on which way I'm going now, and have a lot of work ahead to finish off this first year here.

"Just want to say thanks again to everybody here for all your help, training and support and that goes double for WA."



Still looking forward to getting back with more time!

Hey Travis
You were one of the first people I connected with here Travis so well done for sticking with it, getting more sites online and checking things out.
All this is part of the learning process and the more you do the more you learn.
Good luck with everything from here onwards Travis.

Like where told us at the beginning, it takes time. I'm looking to see where I'll be with my website ranking after one year.

The biggest thing is applying what you learn, and I still need to figure out getting posts and pages to rank page 1. Others are doing it, so I need to do the same.

One of the biggest things Jay mentioned in one of his weekly training for people who do not already have a domain name is to check it out in Jaaxy, for search results before purchasing.
