About Wayne1983
Joined July 2015
Hi there, I am Wayne and I have had a love for chillies and spicy curries for over 15 years.

It all started when i visited a friends house for tea after school one day, and his mom was cooking a curry, to which at that time I wasn’t really bothered about has I didn’t think I’d like curries (I never thought they smelt appealing!). And ever since that day I just fell in love with all hot and spicy foods, and now I can eat curries all the time!

I look forward to communicating with everyone here, and look forward to hearing from you, thanks, Wayne.

Hi Deraj, i am progressing along steadily i feel and am at video 9 now and coming to the part where i add content to my website.
However i feel that i want to just concentrate on everything on the chilli side of my website.
So i want to know can i change my website title from 'thenakedgardener .com, to something like 'thechilliexpert .com (ok i know thats likely gone but you get my jist).
I do other gardening things too, but just feel id rather focus on one topic, like chillis and make a good job at that, rather than 'spread myself thin', and do a mediocre job trying too much.
Many thanks for your help again!

Dear Wayne,
Have you already buy the domain or your site is still as free site under "http://siterubix.com" domain? If you haven't purchase domain yet, then you can move your site to any available domain name as you want.
However, if you had already purchase domain, then now it is better not to change domain name. Actually domain name is nothing. You can still make pages with attractive titles and those titles are the ones which are going to appear in the search pages and people will click your site by viewing those titles and description. They rarely focus on domain name.

Hi Deraj , no I've not yet bought domain, should I wait till I've progressed more through the course before doing this?
If you can take a look at my website please and see what you think so far, many thanks.

Dear Wayne,
If you haven't purchase domain yet, then you no need to worry about changing domain name because when your purchase your own private domain, that time you can choose any available domain name. However, if you purchase domain more early, have chance to get more options because later on may be some other will purchase the domain which you want to use for your site.
Anyway, you can sure continue with free domain as well. It is totally your choice.
I've already looked your website and you are doing great. However, like Kyle suggest you, you should add pictures on your site. In my previous reply to you, I already provide you the links of the sites from where you can get free as well as paid pictures.

Thanks Deraj, how much does it cost to buy your domain? Also which
Link did you give me that shows me photos, sorry I missed that? Many thanks for your help, kind regards Wayne .

Dear Wayne,
It costs around $10 to $12 per year to buy domain and you can buy that simply in namecheap.com
The link which I provide to get photos are as below:
http://www.freeimages.com/
http://www.istockphoto.com/
You will also find the list of sites to get best pictures from internet within upcoming lessons of WA as well.

Thanks Deraj, so really its not a lot of money. I will take a look, just want to get cracking on learning. So far my site is coming on steady, and is looking better with some pictures on.
Thanks for your time explaining to me, kind regards Wayne.

Yep Wayne,
It is not lot of money. However, only buy domain and transfer your site to that domain when you finalize your domain name. It is not good to change your domain time to time.

Thanks Deraj I'll have to watch the level 2 videos to get a better understanding about these domains. I'm still learning about it, it's not something I know about too well. Thanks for your help, kind regards Wayne .

Kyle I've been thinking, I've worked and still do gardening, so I'm thinking of linking growing chillies (chilli growing companies) and other gardening companies in my niche, do you think this would be a good idea, sort of keeping the growing under the same umbrella?
I'm at level 4 now, the starting of designing my website, now that is something I've got to learn!, however I do feel I'm grasping more of what's to do here.
I must say so far I'm impressed with the site and your content, and I'm looking forward to building a good business up hopefully!
Have a great day, kind regards Wayne.

Also Kyle someones sent me a link gardening advantage .com, they apparently design and have all dealings with your website, do you know this?
Im going to make my website later and take it from there. Its quite an exciting opportunity, and i just want to make a success of it all.
I am thinking of upgrading to the premium but just want to make sure my investment will be a good worthwhile thing. But so far im really impressed. Many thanks for all your help, kind regards Wayne.

I am not familiar with this site, but there are 100,000's of websites hosted here at WA so there could very well be sites related to this and there is. That is not ann issue though, never worry about competition as there is more than enough room for all of us within the online space.

I do like your idea and I think that you should stick with a specific type of gardening versus tackling the niche as a whole. You will be much better off that way.

I look forward to working with you Wayne and i know you are going to love Premium if you do decide to upgrade.

wayne1983 Premium
Thanks Kyle, so you think its better say to make my niche for example edible growing like fruit and veg and the chillies i keep saying!
Im trying to think of a good title, 'grow your own', or 'Home grown crops' maybe? Any ideas is really appreciated.
Im seriously thinking of going premium has this is something i want to take seriously and make a good go at. Ive tried a lot of online things before, but never a proper online business like this.
Thank you again for your help and advice.

FruitVegetablesAndChilies.com

Something like that would be cool. It gives you the flexibility but allows you to really point out your passion for chilies.

That is just an example abut that is the direction you can head.

Thanks Kyle, website doesn't open though? I get what you mean though. Ive named the website thenakedgardener .com, thanks to a member on heres suggestion.
I have set the website up and now going to watch the other videos and see how to make it into something decent.
Many thanks for your help, kind regards Wayne.

Hi Kyle, ive decided im going to focus my time on just chilli growing and everything to do with chillies, now id like to know if i can change the title of my website or do i need to discard it and start again?, many thanks for your time, kind regards Wayne.

Hi Kyle, im trying to move my website off wa to namecheap.com. Basically ive set my account up at namecheap.com and bought my site 'spicychilliking.com'. Followed all your video instructions exactly so far, but now im at the part where i need to click the box 'to a new domain' on wa website. However thats not coming up for me and it wont let me move on until i do so. But i cannot click it because its not there to do so.
Any help would be appreciated so i can move forward and get cracking on further.
Thanks for your help, kind regards Wayne.

I think what you mean is transfer your website to your own domain, it is still hosted here at WA as namecheap.com is just your domain registrar. Here is the training on how to do this: If you have any further issues here Wayne, just let me know. :)

wayne1983 Premium
Hi kyle, the 2 boxes at the top of the page where you click to choose either a new domain or an existing domain are not showing at my end. I'm told a few other people have had this issue to.
I'm not sure why this is, but I cannot transfer my free site until these box options come up.
Thanks for your time, kind regards Wayne.

Hi Kyle, its fine now thanks. I did manage to sort it in the end, ive been moving forward with your videos, and following what youve said on those.
Im adding more content to so its coming on steady. I feel its a long journey and certainly no sprint here.
However im pretty pleased so far with what ive achieved.
Many thanks for the help again, kind regards Wayne.

Not a sprint, but things can start really snowballing quickly as you do move forward. You should be proud of what you have achieved thus far, you have definitely done more in your time here at WA than I did at that stage in the game. :)

Thanks Kyle, yeah I can see things coming along slowly. There's just little things I want to tidy my site up, but suppose it'll all come in time has I get down the training. Thanks for the help kind regards Wayne .

All in time for sure, a website is a constantly evolving entity and as you move forward it will continue to change and ultimately get better and better. :)

Hi Kyle. Ive been watching your level 2 videos 5 and 6 and have made some adjustments to my layout slightly.
The part you mention the difference between 'pages' and 'posts', well a couple of things, like a curry recipe of mine, ive swapped to the posts part, where has the bring life to your food, ive swapped this to my opening page.
The reason is because you mention something about the opening page been related to what you are promoting. So ive swapped the 'about me' page further back.
Also im wanting to get rid of the annoying part of all of my pages/posts where it shows 'edit' at the bottom of each page. Now im not sure if this is shown further down the training, but just wondered if i could get rid of this.
Anyway if you could take a very brief look and just say if you think the layout is ok for now, and the page order, Many thanks, kind regards Wayne.

It only shows "Edit" when you are logged in as an admin, other users will not see that. So don't worry about that at all. If you log out, you will notice that you don't see this any longer when you view your website and that is what your visitors will see.

Your site is looking pretty good, I do think some more visuals would spice it up a bit more.

Also, use clear and concise headlines within your content. You can do this by using h3 tags that break up your content. It will make your content much more readable.

Here is an example of what I mean:

http://waystoavoidscamsonline.com/how-to-sell-your-art-online-paint-yourself-successful

As you scroll down, you will see headlines that break apart my content and foreshadow to my audience what I am going to talk about.

Ex. Art, to be honest, is an EASY sell within the online world?

This is highly effective and will lead to much more readership of your content.

wayne1983 Premium
Thanks Kyle for clearing the 'edit' thing up, so thats nothing to do there.
I will go through all my pages and sort the headings and things out and split my paragraphs too where appropriate.
Yeah I see what you mean regards your site. I will tidy it up in this area, and has i continue to work to the latter stages of level 2 now, its starting to get to the exciting part.
One other thing, on your scam page, i dont know if you saw my comment regards 'my advertising pays' , and a certain scam man 'simon stepsys'. A review on this particular 'company' would be interesting there.
Anyway thanks for the time to look and comment, and will take advice on board, kind regards Wayne.

Yeah, I will get to that comment. Thanks for leaving that, I will most definitely be adding a review about this program as it is one of the epic scams out there right now.

Hi Kyle, now when i was searching for my domain, i found 'thechilliking' was taken. So i took a look at this site this guy has, and its very informative, however he doesnt seem to have a lot of visuals.
So ive been looking for ideas on there, not copying just looking and thinking of ways to make my site more attractive.
One thing i do notice, he does seem to have a lot of links to say amazon with products for sale, so when i get to the stage for signing up for companies , i suppose i can edit my content to put links relevant to what im posting about.
Anyway thanks for all the great help, have a nice day, Wayne.

Also Heres my update site, im adding more visuals, and more info. Ive been working on my growing page today, so when the time comes, i can drop some affiliate links in.I think it looks a lot better with some pics in! Kind regards Wayne.

Sorry for asking another thing!. I kept getting this email from you guys telling me to sign up to the premium Jaaxy account. So ive done it, but just want to know how much more benefit i get for taking action.
I know it gets you keywords for ranking, but must admit i got it because it said only 12 hours left.
Anyway sorry for the long message Kyle, hope you can answer for me, kind regards Wayne.

Yeah, you can definitely start incorporating affiliate links when it starts making sense and if you are recommending a product, I always recommend breaking out that product into it's own review page.

I don't love the other site you mentioned, it doesn't have much going for it other than the colour scheme (being red which speaks "chilies" to me).

On your site, I would suggest you rework your menu so that it doesn't go onto two lines.

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!

Looking good thus far though Wayne. :)

Hi Kyle, well im in the process of sorting my G+ account into something worthwhile. Ive the video on how to make the menu better organised, well i think i have for now. However im wanting to make the 'bring life to your food' page has my 'home page', where all my 'posts' carry on like a blog, a bit like your scam site. Im a bit unsure how to do this.
Anyway im trying to put some finishing touches on my site now, with the 'core info' regards all things chillies, and im nearly onto level 3 which im very pleased with.
Thanks for your help again, best regards Wayne.
(Heres a good example, See the home page, has several 'post' stories, thats how id like my home page to be but not sure how to obtain it) http://www.growhotpeppers.com/
