About Turborick
Joined July 2015
I live in the state of Washington and retired 3 years ago from the Post Office after 34 years and have been looking to find a legitimate way to earn extra income. I tried internet sales a couple years ago. I first bought all the products (on the warrior forum) that were going to change my life and make me an instant success. Didn't happen. I even bought some websites on Flippa. That only lasted as long as it took some guy I hired to do SEO and got me banned from my google Adsense account.

That brings me to this website and their free starter program. I want to learn how to do "right" all the things I did wrong the first time around. I look forward to meeting new people and sharing experiences.

Update Aug.25, 2015. I decided to stick around and went premium the last week of July. Since then I have been working on getting a website up and running. I now have content and would like ideas on what else I should add (pages, content, products, etc.). If you visit my site please comment on any of the pages or come back here and give me some feedback. Thanks

Hey Rick, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)

Hey pribs I have been going through the training materials and reading the blog posts. Some of it is confusing and a little contradictory. Some say if you don't rank #1 in Google you are doomed. Others say you need at least 500 views on your site every day or you won't make any money. I researched hundreds of keywords for some niche ideas I have but the low competition words don't have nearly 500 views/day (15,000/Mon) as some would suggest are a requirement. Kyle said in his training to find key words with QSR scores as close to zero as possible (no more than 150 for new sites) and if you have 20 words that get 100 views/Mon it will add up. Does that mean you will be successful at making money though? Well, again I find it somewhat difficult to find low competition words that meet that requirement. Anyway, I guess I am in need of guidance on this issue before I can move on. Thanks for listening (I'm not complaining just trying to figure out what's real).

You can have all the traffic in the world and, if it's not quality traffic or they don't care much about your content, make absolutely $0/month. Traffic does not equal money. Quality traffic and a well-optimized website equals money.

I agree that it's much better to pick many keywords rather than depending on one or two, especially for the types of websites WA teaches.

It will all become much clearer in time as long as you stick with it. There are countless ways to succeed in internet marketing, so sometimes you'll hear one person say one thing and another say something else. With the methods you've already been taught, that piece of information may be out of context and would fail miserably when combined with everything else you've learned. But if that component were placed within a different ecosystem and combined with other training, it may work brilliantly.

So, to address your question directly, it could all be real. Just out of context and applied to a different training program, it sounds really ludicrous and completely out of touch. If you keep following the training here at WA and don't mix/match from other programs, you should be able to find success as long as you stick with it and stay the course.

I hope that helps!

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Rick! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!


I'd love to get to know you and your income goals better so that I can do my best to set you up for success. Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!


And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Rick :)

Why exactly would I follow someone and why would they follow me? I don't remember anyone explaining that part of the community.

It's not a big deal or anything to worry about. You can follow someone if you want to be notified when they post blog posts or trainings, and the same will happen if you publish a blog post or training at WA. Anyone following you will get notified of your latest post. That's it! Just a way to keep track of the people you want to learn from.

We have many retired folks here at WA that decided to move into the online space to start a business online. What I can tell you Richard is that it is completely possible and you are going to be able to take any niche/interest and turn it into a full time business with some effort.

Everything you need is here to get you moving in the right direction including the support Richard , so just let me know (drop me a reply) at any time. :)

Thank you Richard for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training (Bottom Right Blue Button) on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I also post a humorous blog every Sunday. Enjoy!

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Richard, but I am glad you did.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post or you can post a message directly to my WA profile.

P.S. Happy Friday, Richard! I hope you have an incredible weekend ahead.
