About WA

Last Update: June 02, 2018

Hi every one. Hope you are all well and have good memories.

I am writing a post about WA and it's history, How it's grown, the changes that have happened, and how the platform has changed over the years and I need your help.

Some of you have been here for many years and have had a first-hand look at the ways in which WA has changed.

I know about the early days but I am have some difficulty filling in dates for many of the other improvements we all have now.

Things I'm looking for are years and/or dates that things like the

  • When the Forum first started
  • Live chat came into existance
  • The training programs.
  • When webinars were added
  • When WA added SSL, Site speed, site content.
  • When they first offered free websites on the site Rubix.com Platform

Anything you can think of that I have, for sure missed would be greatly appreciated. I'm not worried about exact dates. Month and year would be just fine.

Been trying to contact Kyle, (not the easiest thing to do and I totally understand. Busy guy) and I have sent out a PM to Jay as well but, I thought I would put this out to the community and see what comes back. If you folks have any info about these changes I would be greatful.

Thanks and all the best,

I managed to ge5 a pm off to Kyle yesterday so I am hoping that it won't be too long before I get a response. Fingers crossed. I know he is a busy guy.

Good luck on your WA chronicles!

I know Kyle has posted some blogs here on Wealthy Affiliate that details some of the beginnings of Wealthy Affiliate. I can't exactly remember if it originally started in 2005 or just a few years later in 2007 or 2008. I'll see if I can find some of those blogs for you.


Here's one that can possibly at least get you started.

Thanks, Brian. I already have some pretty good stuff written about the early days of Kyle and Carson's venture into Online Marketing and the early inception of WA (900words).

I was just looking for some rough dates for the other things that have been added since. Those details seem to be scarce. We know that they added all these things over the last 13 years but I was hoping to be a little more accurate, that's all.

Thaks for what you have given me, though. Hopefully, I will get an answer back from Jay soon and He will have more details for me.

All the best,

Sorry about that, I was hoping that would be a starting point for you. I'm sure you'll find something more accurate and hopefully soon Kyle will get back in touch with you.

No problem, Brian. It's all good.
