People Love PicturesThere's an old timeless adage in some SEO circles, that "people love pictures".So as bloggers, is it possible that we can love pictures "too much"?Is it possible to become a little overzealous with our use of pictures?If you use Google's Page Speed Insights tool, and your site scores poorly, then you may need to check to see whether your use of images is the culprit.For one of my websites, I decided to put a picture in between every paragraph or two. At the time, I thought i

It's a lazy Sunday afternoon, and I figured I would sit down and start typing. It's 97 degrees out, and I'm in my den in my air conditioned basement, sitting in front of the laptop... I set a timer to force myself to focus, Pareto Principle style... But after 40 minutes, I have only written about 650 words of content.... I need some iced coffee... Or maybe I need to go for a walk to get the creative juices flowing.Or some inspiration on how to focus, get in the zone, and start cranking out some

Ok, so as I was saying in my previous blog post here, I am currently working on a blog post that, when all is said and done, will be somewhere in the ballpark of fifteen thousand words.Yes, you read that correctly! Fifteen thousand words.How did I come up with that number, when the training modules here say to aim for about 1,000 words?Well, when I did my keyword research and I found a keyword I wanted to use as the basis for my next article, I decided to "research the competition".I basically

Hey everyone!I came up with an idea to write a blog post that is basically "50 Ways To _____" (sorry, my niche is confidential).When I first wrote the outline for this article, I thought I would write 100 words per item.But as I started writing, I couldn't help myself. Each of these 50 items is averaging about 300 words per section...I am still in the middle of writing this article, and I'm on item #30ish... and I'm at 10,000 words already!I"m pretty sure that's TOO long for an article.So I cam

Hello again! In my blog post from January 20th, 2020, I announced to the world that I had made my first affiliate commission... which was a mere pittance....Since then until now, I have literally taken a huge hiatus from affiliate marketing again. i haven't written any articles or done anything to further my online effort since then until now.Then on May 16th, I received another affiliate sale... Again, it was a very small amount.But I just may proved (or at least provided evidence for) the the

I must confess that I am not as active on Wealthy Affiliate as I ought to be. I've just been too caught up with <insert lame excuse here> to be able to focus my efforts on affiliate marketing lately.But I do realize that it is more important now, than ever, to create multiple streams of income... and not to become complacent and reliant on a day job.The current Coronavirus pandemic spares no-one, whether you are a student, a parent, a blue collar worker, a desk jockey, a service professio

I finally have the distinct honor to proudly announce that I made my first affiliate sale today... After 18 months since joining Wealthy Affiliate (of which more than half of that was extremely part time, and several months at a stretch I was neglecting my websites).It was a measily $6 Amazon purchase in my niche... which I'm sure the commissions are barely a quarter of a dollar.But who cares? I have just proven that somebody actually find my website, click through to an affiliate link, and the

Took me forever and a day, but I finally finished it.My goal in 2020 is to ramp up my efforts and follow the schedule I had drafted in the final module of this training...

Hey everyone,It's all starting to make cents (that's a play on words for "sense", for those of you who caught onto the use of the homonym) now!See here my Adsense earnings.According to this, I have neared 94 cents in the past 28 days through Adsense.While this is a paltry pittance, it does practically demonstrate that making money online is REAL.My goal for 2020 is to scale up and stick to a realistic publishing schedule. 10x the effort, and this can turn into $94 dollars per month!The below Ad

Hey Fellow WAers!Has anyone had any success with getting their blog post featured as a "Google Answer Box" or "Featured Snippet". Not sure what the "official" name of it is...But it's the box that shows up at the top of the search results that is intended to directly answer the question that the user is asking or searching the information for in Google.
