About VinceDaCosta
Joined June 2016
I am a retired Toastmaster, Seminar Leader and Trainer. Written a few books but have not marketed them very well, so still have a box of them in the garage ! They are all non-fiction, so maybe that's why. I am retired, but not the "rocking chair" type, so the opportunity offered by WA interests me.
I am a family man, Christian and always interested in Spiritual improvement. My advice to you is "Keep Smiling".

Hi Vince. I just checked your site and learned about the musical saws. After listening through a couple songs on YouTube, I must say I am in love with the instrument. I've never knew that such a beautiful sound can come out of a saw. I'm speechless at the moment. Going to listen to some more. :)

Vince, I am still getting this blank screen when I try to comment on your site. See attached photo. Do you have the WP Spam Shield plugin activated?
Reply
VinceDaCosta Premium
Wow! thank you for your patience. I went to the WP spam shield and activated it. Please try now and see if at last we have success. Thank you so much for repeatedly advising me.

You need to deactivate the spam shield. You actually don't even need it because that feature is included in the All in One SEO plugin. I am pretty sure that once you deactivate the spam shield plugin that you will be able to start receiving comments.

Hi Vince, Rach is right. We do not need any anti spam plugins now because the owners have included / introduced a feature called: Site Protect, which does all the anti spam stuff for everyone.

I no longer run any anti spam as WA does it for me!

Robert, I hate being a pest. Please forgive. I am not sure what to do about the comment section, and sure don't want to mess it up. Please give some advice to get it startted.

Ok you want a comment section within your site for people to leave comments?

Hello Vince and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
We are actually already following each other.
Now as you know there's lots of help here within WA for Newbies and not so newbies.

Also as you probably know or will find out soon enough internet marketing is a steep learning curve though so can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Robert .. . my website has just been indexed !! What do I do now ? I was not expecting this to happen, and the site is not very professional.
I am happy, but I don't want to mess up. Wow !

Hello Vince
If you have something published on your site the search engines will have crawled it, and quite possibly within minutes and that's why its indexed. It will also be ranked somewhere.

You have only been here a couple of weeks so you can't have done much of the training so I suspect you have 'Jumped The Gun'.

But your site is indexed and now you must add more content and more content and more content on a regular basis.
You have to keep the momentum going.

You don't have your site listed in your profile - where is it?

Enjoy your day.
Robert

VinceDaCosta Premium
Which mean I should list my site on my profile. Let me go do that now.
Thank you Robert. You have been very helpful, so I'll be back again :-)

Hi Vince. You don't have to put your site on your profile if you don't want to but how else are the other members going to possibly view it to give you feedback?
Enjoy your Monday and tick the 'Like' icon if you like comments.

"how else are the other members going to possibly view it to give you feedback?" makes so much sense ! Thank you. DONE !!
How about some feedback, please.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
There is a section where you can ask for site feedback and comments.
Or just publish a wee blog and ask directly.
Have a nice day.
Robert

VinceDaCosta Premium
so much to learn ! I'll try and get my head around that one.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Vince you follow the link below and you give feedback on other member's sites and earn credits for doing so.
Then you use those credits to ask for feedback on your site - quid pro quo.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/website-feedback

Or as I said just publish a simple blog to say you would like some feedback/coments on your site.

Enjoy your day.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle . . . how does the "follow" thing work ? Is it like Twitter?. and wht are the benefits ?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can follow whoever you like, follow people that help you, follow you or that interest you.

It is up to you, those that you do follow you will be notified when they publish blog posts/questions here at WA. It is your way of networking with others and building your circle of friendships here within WA.

Hope this clarifies for you Vince!
