Recently I did a huge Wealthy Affiliate review which focused on the amount of support that is available as well as the functionality of the entire program. From training to tools WA provides for implementation they are top notch when it comes to someone breaking into the affiliate marketing world. In this post I would like to uncover 5 more reasons why I would recommend WA to anyone that is wanting to break into the world of affiliate marketing.
5 Reasons Why I Love Wealthy Affiliate
Reason #1: It’s So Empire Avenue
I used to play a game on Facebook quite a long time ago. I haven’t played it in years but I sure remember how addictive it was for me. It was called Empire Avenue and it allowed me the ability to build up my own assets while earning different points and such. This reward system was a real draw for me and WA does the same thing.
The difference between the 2 is that with WA I’m actually doing something that will positively impact the future of my family. I’m going some where and making a difference. Within the WA world itself they let me know exactly what is taking place in this community and how I am building my corresponding rankings.
At the point of this writing I have been working with the Wealthy Affiliate community for less than a month and have already achieved a rank of 698. Please note that I do spend a ton of time on WA which is why I have climbed so fast but that is the part where the addictive behavior comes into play.
However, they not only show me that number but also break things down in 4 categories as outlined in the graphic. Those categories are:
- Helper Rank
- Creator Rank
- Activity Rank
- Member Rank
Which, of course, leaves me think of strategic ways in which I can be more involved in each of those categories.
I look at it this way.
If I want to build a strong network where people see me as a position of authority on WA, which is exactly what I want, then I need to have the numbers to back me up. Which is exactly what I am building.
This leads me to my next point.
Reason #2: Real Time Health Checks
Part of the way that I build those rankings is by providing posts like the one you are reading now. WA tracks the posts and pages while letting you know what is and is not working for your own designated purposes. They provide this information very quickly and thoroughly.
Premium members get even more power from this whole process than the free members. However, no matter which level you choose it is a resource that you can and should be using when working with WA. To access choose the SiteRubix button on the left nav bar and select site manager.
You now have the ability to access all the pertinent details about your site including such items as:
- How many pages are live
- How many posts are live
- How many comments are approved
- If your site has been indexed on Google
Along with the above I am also able to use this single source location to access.
- My website
- My eMail
- My comments
- My feedback
And, this will be available for all my Websites as I build them out.
But it gets even better.
Reason #3: Detailed To Do Lists
When your spouse wants you to do something around the house they create a list. It is called a “honey do” list and it can sometimes be annoying.
HOT TIP: They are also joined with what I personally believe to be the best SEO keyword research tool for correctly understanding organic search results.
The annoying part is that it breaks into your momentum of whatever you are wanting to accomplish and takes your energies into an entirely different direction. The good, bad and ugly of that is found in that you please your spouse (good), spend your time (bad), get things accomplished (ugly truth of the matter).
WA has the same concept integrated into its platform. I for one love it and am pleased to be able to have it available.
HOT TIP: From the previous display window click the link which is below the temp type monitor on the right which reads “view details below”. Your measurement indicator will look different than mine but will grow to be like mine as you invest time into your own project.
Yes, it deviates my thoughts.
Yes, it guides my direction.
Yes, the end result I believe, will be achieving the success that I am seeking.
Items covered in this section include:
- Publishing Frequency
- Visitor Engagement
- Google Ranked
- Content Quality & Variety
- Your Engagement
- Site Trust
- Website Feedback
Each of these have their own importance but some like Google Ranked are either on or off. Either your site is indexed by Google or it is not. There is no in between with that indicator.
Further, there is nothing you can do to manipulate the results for Site Trust. That is something that you will be rewarded in time as your new project takes on a life, respect and authority of its own on the search engines.
Publishing Frequency and Content Quality & Variety both have to deal with what you are putting on your Website. What are you creating and how often are you doing so. For me, my goal is to create 1 new piece of high quality content (like what you are reading) for at least the first 30 days. Knowing me, and as I see success coming my way, I will likely continue this process though it is not necessary to be so intense to succeed. Just realize that how fast you do or do not go with building your business is exactly how fast you will or will not be rewarded by the search engines.
This leaves 3 categories remaining.
- Visitor Engagement
- Your Engagement
- Website Feedback
These makeup the final 2 points that I will be covering in this article with the final one being the absolute best reason of the 5 that I love WA.
Reason #4: High Quality Feedback Solution
First, to access this section refer to the health check monitor spoken of in reason 2 and click the feedback button. There are other ways to get to this but that certainly is one of them.
Once you are in this section you will see 2 buttons.
- Request Feedback (Which will have no numbers in the box)
- Offer feedback (Which also reads “earn 1 credit”)
Each time you review 2 websites of other members on WA you receive the ability to request a review of your own. Simply click the “offer feedback” button, follow the promptings to leave your feedback and submit. That’s it.
Once you have earned your feedback credit you can select the button that reads “request feedback”. You will be asked to identify which website you want feedback for. If you only have 1 website then that is easy.
Next you will be asked for what type of feedback you want to receive. There are 5 options available.
- Feedback on my content
- Feedback on my site design
- Feedback on the layout of my page
- Feedback on my use of images and media
- General feedback
Select which type of feedback you are after, click preview my request and verify that everything is correct. The button that you just clicked has new words which read “submit my request for feedback”. Click that and you are done.
Now just wait for the feedback to come back to you and enjoy. Most of the time the feedback is really good. In fact, I haven’t received feedback yet that I haven’t been able to grow from with my site in one way or another.
While all of this is good it is important to note that this will not directly affect your rankings on the search engine.
Well, that is sorta true.
The look, feel and functionality of your site will cause people to either be involved with what you are doing or not. The more involved that people are the more attention that Google pays to you. This leads me to my last and final reason in this list of 5 reasons that I love Wealthy Affiliate.
I’ve saved the best for last, in my opinion.
Reason #5: Interactively Engaged Comment Frenzy
While everything I have said previously is indeed super critical to your success I believe this reason surpasses all the rest.
I’ve been working online since the early 90’s. One of the biggest hurdles I have found in my time is in securing high quality user engagement with my site. Wealthy Affiliate changes all that in a super huge way with their comment portal which works in a similar way to the feedback system described in reason #4.
To access this section using the health check monitor referred to in reason #2 simply click the comments button and you have arrived.
Two options are available.
- Request Comments
- Offer Comments
You need to earn 2 credits from offering comments in-order to request a comment. It is critical that your comment has high quality value or it is able to be rejected by the person receiving the comment. If that starts to happen your percentage score drops. If it drops to far you can lose the ability to even leave comments. You don’t want to do that. The way to avoid such happenings is making sure that all your comments have high quality according to the blog post that you are leaving comments on.
To leave a comment simply click “offer comments” and follow the promptings.
Requesting a comment is just as easy thought there are a couple more steps.
- Choose what domain you want the comment for.
- Select the article that you want the comments on.
- Tell how many comments you want. This will be based on how many comments you have left.
- Select the button to request comments and you will have a display page to review
- As long as everything looks correct click the green button under the preview which reads “submit my request for comments.”
Your done. It really is that easy.
When you receive a high quality comment back be sure to respond to it with an equally high quality response. This is after all, your blog. Make it a stellar one and reap the rewards as a result.
The reason that this is my absolute favorite reason for my love of Wealthy Affiliate is simply because Google loves interaction on blogs and will pay great attention to it. I’ve tried many tools before and none of them have worked for me. WA makes the difference and they make the process so simple.
Concluding Thoughts About Reasons I Love Wealthy Affiliate
While all the reasons above certainly are powerful one’s they are not the only one’s.
I have not spoken at all about the engaged community that Wealthy Affiliate brings to the equation. Nor have I said a word about eMail integration or how active the site owners are with making it happen for all of us at the same time.
Simply put, if your serious about become a success as an affiliate marketer online then Wealthy Affiliate is where you need to be investing your time.
I’ve been online since the 90’s and I personally find great value from what I have been learning at WA. They are absolutely making the difference for me as it relates to success within the world of affiliate marketing. The best part is that what is being taught can easily move beyond affiliate marketing into other avenues.
