My Experience At Wealthy Affiliate


My experience at Wealthy Affiliate started on September 5th, 2015.



When I signed up for the free starter membership, I was super excited to have found this platform. I’ve spent a couple of days and nights reading, surfing, searching through the site. Started both Certification and Bootcamp training and was going through the lessons with such ease.

After seven days I upgraded to the premium membership on a monthly basis. I’ve got a first-month discount and paid only $19. Every other month was $47. I even bought a domain for handmade jewelry and art products. But I still didn’t get into building a story.

Then I had to go back to ”reality” where internet connection is a luxury. Working on the ship, planning the future in the meantime and traveling didn’t go together with sitting in front of the computer. I had to do other stuff. Now I know for sure that I wasn’t ready enough to give myself a chance.

But I’ve never stopped paying for my membership. I would connect here and there just to see what was going on within the platform. I was out in about knowing that I was going to get into the right moment for building my success story!


Making life-changing decisions

Ten months after I have opened my account at the Wealthy Affiliate, I decided to make a commitment and take advantage of my membership. I have paid for an annual membership and my real journey to success has finally started on July 26th, 2016.

I’ve changed my plan and goals within my WA profile description and started a blog called I CAN DO IT! 

It has been 88 days (like 88 keys lol) since I truly committed myself to my online success. My ”I can do it” blog journal has been created ever since then on a daily basis. It keeps tracking all that I study and work on throughout the day. My progress and failures, my happiness and struggles, questions and answers, concerns, support, motivation, everything that takes one such a big and long journey – CREATING AN ONLINE BUSINESS.

Through my blog, I network with the Wealthy Affiliate members, learn from them, and share my experience and knowledge, life philosophy, and inspiring stories. I also get my ideas recorded and sometimes developed right there in my Wealthy Affiliate blog journal.


The little voice in my head

I was struggling to find content for the My Sweet Financial Freedom site. Finding inspiration and motivation was hard. But I knew that all the great ideas show up to me whenever I don’t expect them. So I decided to focus on my lessons and keep on my journal, and I knew that the answer was going to happen in no time.




One night I went to sleep, and in my meditation routine I asked a simple question
”What I could write about so that I enjoy writing and that people enjoy reading?”

After only a few minutes I heard a little whispering voice again:
”Write about your experience at the Wealthy Affiliate.” 

Do you know those A-HA moments? That was the one! I took my phone, opened a keyword tool, and found the right name for my new page! That’s the page you are reading now. And this is one great big start!

I will go back to each of the daily blogs and create a post on my experience from day one until my first million 🙂 And you will be witnessing all the steps I accomplished along the journey!

At this time I would like to ask you to feel free to ask questions, leave your comments, start conversations, on everything you would like to know related to my journey! We are going to travel together!

Buckle your seat belt and get ready! We are taking off!!!

How Long Does It Take To Make Money At The Wealthy Affiliate


45, 48, 67, 98, 100, 109, 129! These numbers counted in days are the answer to the question you have just asked: “How long does it take to make money at the Wealthy Affiliate!”
On my 45th day, I earned my very first dollar online, on my 129th day I got my first premium commission 🙂




This is what happened.

Back to September 2015

  • September 2015. – I joined the Wealthy Affiliate and Gone Premium – $19 BONUS Premium
    I was at the same time very excited but also a little skeptical until I became active. I started getting followers and their warm welcome messages, met Kyle, joined the live chat, and realized that I was completely safe. I felt like I had found my lucky charm, spent a couple of nights surfing around, and started a Certification course.


  • I remained a monthly premium member, but by the end of September 2015; I went on a road trip, then I have joined a cruise ship again and didn’t have much chance to focus on the Wealthy Affiliate.


A decision that has changed my life

  • July 2016. – upgraded to the yearly membership
  • July 26, 2016. – Made a commitment that was the best decision I could make. I was following my plan pretty much. And the plan was to spend 8 hours a day going through the lessons which Kyle prepared for us.

I took it very seriously:

  • Started the Online Entrepreneur Certification course
  • Bought a domain for my spiritual journey and one for my acting career
  • Had come all the way to Course 2 – Lesson 6 (7 courses, ten lessons each)
  • Realized that I had to get acquainted with online marketing first.

That’s when I decided to leave my website alone and get to it only when I have inspiration.


The Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp

Focusing on Wealthy Affiliate training was one more right decision. But let me tell you something, this doesn’t have to be your case too. I found it much easier for to learn the technical part before the creative part.

When you start with the Bootcamp (which is the training for those who want to promote the University), you have all the content already pre-prepared within your lessons. It’s just about putting it together.

  • In August I also created a website for my friend
  • Bought my first WA domain on August 23, 2016.



My First $ on Day 45!

On August 22nd I started with the Bootcamp training, and after a few days, I completely focused on the Wealthy Affiliate promotion.

I have learned how to add the Wealthy Affiliate banners and signed up my mom to click on them just to make sure that they work and use my affiliate link, set up her account, and BAM!





That happened on day 45 since I had made a commitment.

And then

In September I made 11 more dollars:

    • My mom’s friend became my referral on September 11, 2016. —-$1 – Day 48!
    • On September 30, 2016. —$10 – Day 67, I got two emails from Kyle and Carson. My tutorials were cash-credit with $10.Cash-credits-at-the-Wealthy-Affiliate
    • That is what is a significant part of this platform. When you learn something and create a tutorial for other members on that topic, you automatically create a chance to earn some passive income which happened to me. I created one tutorial on clickable banners and one on inspiration and motivation and received $5 for each of them, and they will pay off even more in the future.
    • On October 31, 2016. ——-$5, which was my Day 98 of dedicated work, my third tutorial got the credit.
    • On November 2, 2016. —–$1, day 100, I signed up my dad just for the purpose of the page creation
    • On November 11, 2016. —- $1, day 109, I got one more referral which set up his account


My BIG sale!

On December 1, 2016. – Day 129, my new referral has taken advantage of the Black Friday sale and upgraded to A Yearly Premium Membership. The commission for the Black Friday sale was $130! A regular affiliate commission back then was $175.



Overall, my dear friends, I have made $149 in 129 days 🙂 Isn’t that great?
Now you can see that creating an online business isn’t an overnight success where ”you just need to click a couple of times, and I will send you $500″.

A legit online business is about building a nice and strong foundation, getting serious knowledge, and using tools that are being updated on a daily basis.

It’s not easy work, but it’s one fun, serious game 🙂

The First Month Of My Commitment at the Wealthy Affiliate


This page is about the rest of my first month at Wealthy Affiliate. The first 10 days of my experience you can find HERE 

And this page is about:
1. Dealing with the first major issues
2. My very own domain
3. The struggle with a content creation
4. Finding the right WordPress theme for my website was a big deal
5. Starting all over again
6. Getting to know the WA activity dashboard is a great source of an inspiration
7. The time zone struggle



Dealing with the first “major” issues

I was seriously stressed out when it came to the first issue I had to deal with. I couldn’t figure out anything and I felt like everything was against me. Even my screenshot tool.

Fellow friends from the WA explained to me that all the newbies go through that stressful process of figuring out “strange” things, and they gave me tips on how to do all of the tasks I found difficult.

My self-confidence rose up again and I was sure again I could do it! I could get everything done!




My very own domain

I finally purchased my very own domain with my name. As an actress, it’s good to have a website that represents my work.

The web page is not done yet, it will be soon 😉


The struggle with a content creation

Content has a big role in an online business. In the beginning, I was struggling a lot. I had many ideas on my mind but my fingers just wouldn’t type. And that’s it!

But then, I discovered a fantastic deal! I started writing down whatever was on my mind without thinking of the final product.

Those few pages on the Good Vibe Source website are my first babies. My the first words from my soul that I ever shared with the world. I learned that writing content for the website doesn’t have to be official and standardized.

I realized that writing a blog for me means:
Letting my artistic soul dancing online.



Finding the right WordPress theme was a big deal

I haven’t failed. I just found the ways that did not work!

As a Wealthy Affiliate member, I have access to over 2000 different WordPress themes for free. That means that I can install as many themes as I want and try them all.

I couldn’t decide which one was good enough for my www.thegoodvibesource.com website and I tried many of them.

This is how I got familiar with the WordPress dashboard and realized that some themes require a premium upgrade in order to let you have some features on your web page. As I didn’t have to go for premium I would just switch to another theme. And another. And another.


Starting all over again

After one very interesting self-talk on August 9th (my day 15 since I made a commitment), I decided to start all over again. I started my Certification course from the beginning for the third time. This time I created a plan with daily tasks and was going to “rebuild” my two websites.

Well, practice makes perfect!!!

I also decided to start with BootCamp too and see how that goes. So I was spending 4 hours on the Certification course and my niche website and the rest on the BootCamp





New Websites

As I started my Wealthy Affiliate BootCamp, I bought my new domain for that purpose. And that’s this website which you visited today and which grew all the way up to this point that you are reading it’s content!

Do I need to point out how much I am happy for having you here on my page? 🙂

By the end of the first month, I created a Siterubix website for my good friend and I was so happy to use my already gained knowledge!


Getting to know the WA activity dashboard is a great source of inspiration

Reading inspiring blogs and success stories written by the Wealthy Affiliate members helped me to go through difficult struggling times.

There is this awesome member, Peter, who posts amazing quotes every day, and that’s his all public activity within the Wealthy Affiliate.





The time zone struggle

Well, it was unthinkable for me to sleep at night during my first month of the commitment I made. I took it so seriously. I was staying up until early morning getting my lessons done, sleeping just a couple of hours after that before getting into work again.

And there is something more I have learned during this first month:




That’s all folks! My first month came to the end! The first 30 days! On August 24, I reached the TOP 200 RANK at the Wealthy Affiliate and went on vacation with my friend.

The next chapter for me to write about and for you to read is the month of September 🙂 But before we get there together, you can feel free to share your thoughts on anything mentioned above.

I will be more than happy to chat with you 🙂

A Great Start Of An Online Business – How To Find The Perfect Niche


The second day of my commitment to my Wealthy Affiliate journey was Wednesday, July 27th, 2016. This was the day when I realized once again in my life that everything happens for a reason and at the right time.



I wasn’t up to creating a website just for the sake of creating the website. Instead, I was questioning myself all the time: “How to find the perfect niche?” The one I would enjoy talking about. How to recognize it?


My perfect niche

I signed up for the Wealthy Affiliate back in September 2015. when I decided to get into an online business, but I didn’t have any idea how to start at that moment. I was just around reading others’ success stories not getting into mine so much.

I was waiting for some great idea to come to my mind, while studying positive psychology, meditating, and being involved in my spiritual growth more than ever before. That great idea happened!

My goal was to create a place on the internet where people can gain some positive, lovely vibe. So I decided to choose my niche based on my experience with meditations and spirituality I was learning about throughout my life and especially during the last ten months till that moment.

The second day of my commitment was special to me for some other reasons too:

My rank# dropped from 4616 to 3021 in one day

The ranking within the Wealthy Affiliate is important since it is showing the first results of the hard work. As much you are involved with the community and the tasks as more your rank drops.

Being highly ranked in the Wealthy Affiliate means more followers which means more friends which means more positive vibes, more fun, more lessons learned, more help and assistance, possibly getting the ambassadorship, which leads to more followers, more friends, and so on 🙂


Setting up goals

The Wealthy Affiliate training is second to none. The first lesson is all about the introduction and getting to know the starting points of the online business, setting up goals, and meeting Kyle (the owner and co-founder).

I set my financial and non-financial goals. Looking back now, my goals at that moment were pretty high lol




More awesomeness

I got introduced to affiliate marketing and understood it pretty much. Kyle is just a perfect teacher. He knows how to convey his knowledge to people. He put the theory into an awesome scheme.

Take a look 🙂 




Overall this was a great day, very creative and progressive. I finished the first two lessons of the Online Entrepreneur Certification course, expanded my network, met some amazing people, and once again was amazed by the Wealthy Affiliate community.

Now here is about the rest of my days of the first decade 🙂


Day 3 – Thursday, July 28th – I can, or I am doing it

On the third day of my Wealthy Affiliate commitment, I finished lessons 3 and 4 of the Certification course, expanded my network, learned a lot, and got more clear about a niche, offered my help to the folks in a live chat.
The time went by fast which was proof of doing the right thing.

My rank number dropped to 1449.

I bought my domain The Good Vibe Source and built my brand new very own website 🙂


Day 4 – Friday, July 29th – Challenge yourself, bet with a friend or do both

I made a bet with my friend that in 3 weeks starting from July 26th I was going to make my first online income. That bet motivated me to get up early and set up my website even though I was up till late working on the tasks.

I finished the tasks from lessons 5, 6, 7, 8 of the Certification course, learned a lot about the keywords and how to search for them and set up my first three pages of The Good Vibe Source.

Very satisfied with the accomplishments, I went to sleep after a long, long working day.


Day 5 – July 30 – Level 1 of the course done!

Here is a small part of my journal from that day 🙂




This was such a great day! I was super happy with what I’ve done in a short time 🙂
Some wonderful members gave me great tips especially on my announcement about a decision to have Sundays off.



Day 6 – Day Off – July 31st

My rank number was 911 LOL

I finished the first two lessons on the second level of the course. It came to the point when I had to step away from my computer. I was stuck with writing. Couldn’t get into it. I was so disappointed, and I lost the satisfaction to continue working on tasks.

I also couldn’t figure out how to add my photo to the About me page 🙂


Day 7 – August 1st

My rank number was 735.

I fell asleep typing on my computer. I remember now how I was spending hours (all day long) every day studying online business and how to create it. Going through the Wealthy Affiliate tasks, reading other’s stories about success, and daydreaming about my success.

Day 8 – Day OFF – August 2nd

Day 9 – Finding a way to do it – August 3rd

My rank number was 682.
I finished lesson 3 and started the next one.
I couldn’t break through that writing block just yet.

For the first time getting involved in the SiteRubix feedback platform, where is established the “pay it forward system” and in order to get some comments and feedback for your website you need to earn credits. And you earn them by commenting on others’ posts. Awesome Wealthy Affiliate feature.


Day 10 – Day OFF – August 4th

My rank number was 602! I would like to be clear about this rank number. That was my way to track my progress. It was my motivation at the very beginning of my commitment. I loved waking up in the early morning just to check my position in the Wealthy Affiliate community.

At Wealthy Affiliate – The First Month Of My Commitment



How To Use WordPress


Like every other post I make, this one is being written based on my own experience. Like everything else, Wealthy Affiliate training thought me how to use WordPress.

A few years ago I heard about WordPress and had opened an account, but I never gave myself a chance to figure it out. Now I know that it is the best tool for managing blogs and websites. And it is so simple when you have great teachers around.

It is a tool that we use for making websites and building an online business within the Wealthy Affiliate platform.





Let’s see what’s inside of this great feature

Dashboard – a back office 
Once you log into your account, you will open the door of your back office. From here you will manage everything from the technical to the creative side of your website/blog.



There are over 2000 different WP themes in a store, which present a layout of your blog. You can always switch from one to another until you find the one that fits your needs. Each time I start with a new website I change the theme until I find some that perfectly fits my idea. For me, it is imperative that I love it! Of course, there are many options for each of them.




They are small code programs that improve the functionality of your website. They can help you both in the technical part of your work and the artistic side of your soul 🙂  Some of them are required (those are pre-installed by the Wealthy Affiliate team), and some of them are there just if you want them to improve your work.

Even though there is a bunch of plugins to be used for free, it’s not recommended to have hundreds of plugins installed. That’s why HTML is a computer language that is an awesome tool to be used within WordPress. It’s very simple although it looks scary at the first sight.

Media system
Besides typing text, a WP supports images and videos, and audio which makes it beautiful and open for creation.

A manager of the site is by default an admin, but you can add other users as well:

  • Subscriber – an audience
  • Contributor
  • Author
  • Editor
  • Administrator – a partner

By now I’ve learned how and when to assign these two roles (Subscriber and Administrator) to other people visiting my sites. As you know, I am still learning, and I believe I will make an update on this topic very soon 🙂

Pages and Posts
Pages are the basic structure of the site. You can find them within the site’s menus.
Posts are an update of the blog from day today.
I use them like this:
For example, the content that you are reading now named ”WordPress” is written as a page. I consider it as an announcement for future posts related to it (“Using HTML in WP,” “What is the WP dashboard” etc.) which appears on my landing (main/home) page when you open my site. Some people call that BLOG.

One more excellent feature which allows interaction between the site’s creator and an audience



As you can see, WordPress is a great tool for building an online business. Some people use it just for fun, for sharing some ideas, life experiences.

Whatever you use it for, it’s very straightforward and easy to navigate. Especially if you host your site here at the Wealthy Affiliate which you can do for free both as a starter member (2 free websites) and a premium member (up to 50 on your domain, and 20 on siterubix.com domain).

The best of all is that Kyle and Carson (co-founders and owners of the WA) do all the hard work related to hosting and site protection.

Your job is just to follow their guidance and build your success.


Now go ahead and check my review page and find out what is Wealthy Affiliate and why it’s good to join it today!

I Can Do It Journal


The first post I ever created at the Wealthy Affiliate opened my “I can do it a journal.”. That was on Tuesday, July 26, 2016. And it was a little bit after I upgraded from monthly to the yearly premium membership.




I took advantage of the first week of the Free starter membership and paid only $19 in September 2015. Until July 2016. I was a monthly member and was paying $49 per month. I never regretted going to premium. This was also the way to look at this job in a long term.


Making a commitment

On that day I committed to 8 hours per day full-time learning for the entire month, figuring out how the Wealthy Affiliate platform works, listening to the lessons, and going through the tasks.

When I made a commitment and decided to make a plan and stick with it, I realized that I had no idea how to break through the writing barrier.

This was when a great idea came to my mind. To write a journal about my journey at the Wealthy Affiliate. I found it better to write straight away as a blog within the Wealthy Affiliate community so that other members can read and comment on it, to give suggestions, and so on 🙂

That Tuesday, July 26th I named as the first day of my year of success.

My Wealthy Affiliate rank was 4616. I used Live Chat for the first time after a while and got support on using the referral links and posting them on Facebook. I was so amazed by the Wealthy Affiliate support and a live chat which was real and professional 🙂

Everything was so new to me. I had no idea what I was going to go through. It seemed at the same time very simple and easy but also very new, complicated, and difficult to manage. Oh my, that was just because I was a complete newbie in online marketing.


Finding a way to stay focused

Those days I was attending 2 days long Vipassana (freestyle) meditation course. I learned there how to go through the situations and tasks I am not familiar with by just repeating a few amazing sentences:

This is an experiment.
I don’t know what will happen.
Anything can happen.
Let’s see what happens.

That was my mantra and I loved it. It perfectly fitted in the entire deal with my new job – experiment 🙂

So as I said, I promised to myself and apparently to the community as well that I was going to stick to my plan:
8 hours full-time working for the entire following month.




As I already said before, I was not so confident with writing in English so that others could read my texts officially, so I asked a community to help me with this. To throw some suggestions and assistance even when I don’t ask for it.

I knew that that way was the best way for me to improve my English, and also get ready for my website content.

I just knew that I had to break that ice 🙂

However, that first day I was awake until 3:30 in the morning, working on my goals, reading, and listening to the videos. I started working at 12:33 am. I was already falling asleep. I accomplished three hours for that day and had five more hours to go 🙂

Also, whenever I have written my first Wealthy Affiliate blog post and wanted to publish it, the system was asking for the tags. And I didn’t have an idea what I was supposed to write. And I just left Kyle’s name over there lol

Anyways, it was fun 🙂

Well, since I established the “I can do it” journal, I’ve been writing a blog post within the Wealthy Affiliate on a daily basis (with some very rare exceptions).

My plan is to introduce you to each day of my journey towards success.

How To Earn And Use Cash Credits At Wealthy Affiliate


On this page, I will discuss the Wealthy Affiliate credit system and the impact it has on my online success.
So let’s see without further due, how to earn and use cash credits at Wealthy Affiliate.

First of all, you will find three kinds of credits within the credit dashboard:
1. Community credits
2. Cash credits
3. Affiliate credits



Community Credits

The single most important thing to know when it comes to building online business success is to gain the search engine’s love.  As I explain HERE the process of making money online, to start making money you need to have your audience, and a good ranking in Google and other search engines.

To get that successful ranking, you need to gain Google’s trust and one of the best ways to do that is to have visitors on your website. But how on Earth can you make someone visit your site before it’s even ranked on Google?

Kyle and Carson from the Wealthy Affiliate made a great system which helps in that a lot. That’s paying forward comments and a feedback platform, where you get to read other members’ posts and comment on them, and you have guaranteed comments back on your site.



Each comment/feedback you submit on someone’s page gets you 1 community credit.
To request a comment/feedback on your website, you need 2 credits.
So, to get 1 comment/feedback, you need to give 2. That’s why is called the pay it forward system and it works very well.

Community credits you can use only within this SiteRubix platform. They do not carry any cash value.


Cash Credits

The Wealthy Affiliate platform has Bootcamp training, written tutorials, video training sessions online. It is based on the principle of learn and earn which makes you earn an income while studying the topic. It is a very well designed system and here is how it works:
1. Follow the training
2. Share your experience and knowledge
3. The system pays you back in credits
4. You can cash out your credits and earn income or use them for making some more search engines love

Note that this is just one of the beautiful features Wealthy Affiliate has and this is one of the ways you can make money with Wealthy Affiliate.

1 credit = 0.50$


How to earn cash credits?

1. Create a training or tutorial within the community – After three months of being a premium member, everyone is allowed to create training for the members which explains how to manage some of the tools, or how to build something on the website, or how to use the WordPress. It can be anything related to online marketing or motivation.

2. Domain registration – When your referrals purchase a domain through the Wealthy Affiliate, you earn credits as well.


3. Buy cash credits – 1 credit = 0.50$ (you can buy as many as you want)


How to use cash credits?

  1. You can use them to purchase a new domain within the Wealthy Affiliate (the price is better than anywhere else, and it includes all the other features you need with your domain name: safety and security, antispam program, site backup, 24/7 support, live support)



2. Request comments and feedback – You remember that to get some Google love you need to have visitors on your website? And you remember from the previous chapter how you can get those? Well, here is the fun part.

You can simply save your time by using your cash credits in the SiteRubix platform for the Comments/Feedback request instead of paying forward by commenting on other posts.


3. Cash them out! 2 credits = 1$ – you need to have at least 20 credits for cashing out.


Watch this video tutorial about the credit system at Wealthy Affiliate





Affiliate credits

Whenever you refer others to Wealthy Affiliate; you earn those Affiliate credits.
One referral = 2 credits = 1$
You can use those on the Comments/Feedback request and for domain purchase.
To cash them out, you have to have at least 40 affiliate credits.





Here is a small part of my credit breakdown at the very beginning of my career at Wealthy Affiliate. That means what I earned in the first 3 months of my training:

40 cash credits = $20 – earned by creating tutorials within the platform
10 cash credits = $5 – earned by referring Wealthy Affiliate
2 cash credits = $1 – earned on my referral’s domain registration




I hope you enjoyed reading this post and got inspired to head back to the Wealthy Affiliate and make some $$$

What is a backlink about?


Today we will discuss the importance of backlinks and how to utilize them successfully while building your SEO success. So what is a backlink about and how does it impact your website?




Backlinks are links that are created when one website is linked to another. They are called inbound or incoming links as well. They represent a vote of confidence from one site to another.

Some backlinks are more powerful than others, and this depends on the importance of the websites that recommend your website. The more trustful is the website that recommends you, the more powerful is a backlink created to link your website with it.


There are different ways to get more people pointing to your website, especially on powerful websites sending their clients to you:

  • Writing guests posts and offering your content for free to other websites
  • Making a podcast about yourself, your product, service, and industry. This gives you a chance to be present on Spotify and therefore share your website URL with your listeners as well
  • Do research for some podcast creators and offer to be a guest. This gives you an opportunity to connect with their listeners
  • Exchange links with other websites. This builds a lot of trust among the audiences
  • Offer to business insiders to create content for them and they will send their audience back to your website


What is a good backlink?

A good quality backlink is one that comes from a trustworthy website that follows Google’s rules. It comes from a website that has a similar topic to your website. It doesn’t spam your visitors. Always follow and double-check your backlinks on a regular basis so you avoid unpleasant penalties from Google.


How to create and utilize backlinks for your website?


This is a great strategy that connects you to different websites which then become your vote of confidence. What you need to do is to do research, and find websites related to your business, niche, or topic you discuss on your website. GET INVOLVED leaving comments on these websites. Asking honest questions and genuinely interacting with the website owner and their audience, you will gain their trust and build interest in your work.

This will work perfectly well for you if the website comment section asks you for your information. Usually, that’s the name, email address, and URL. If this is the case, most likely your NAME will become your backlink pointing to your website.



These links will work for you only when you focus on creating quality content. Actually, EVERYTHING in online business success is about quality content. This makes people wanting to share your article on their social media platforms. This is also one of the reasons why you want to have the social media plugin installed on your website



This is great because it allows you to connect with someone’s audience with the established trust for the given website. Offer your content for sharing to the well-known and well-visited websites if possible and watch your ranking grow.

The owners of those websites will be more than happy to get your high-quality content for free and in return, you have all eyes on you which brings potential customers to your website.



Simply put, this is like a link exchange between you and the people you meet online. It’s very good to offer to utilize other links within your pages and they can do the same for you. I do this with people whose websites target different niches than mine while finding one single common point to build that exchange around it.



This completely depends on the quality of your content. Natural backlinks are built when people read something on your website and share that content with their friends. Google loves these types of links.


As you can see we are getting back to quality content. Een Google recommends writing for readers, not for search engines.

Always write your content as if you are in a conversation with a friend. This is the only way to not sound like the keywords are your number one priority.

The more quality content you write, the more natural backlinks you will get created by your audience.



Are backlinks really important for your SEO success?

OK. Now I believe it is time to look closely into the importance of the backlinks. Some internet gurus would highlight everything I mentioned above.

And some experienced entrepreneurs and internet marketers would tell you to completely avoid usage of the backlinks and FOCUS ON THE QUALITY OF YOUR CONTENT. 

One of them is Kyle from the Wealthy Affiliate.




Ever since I started my online business journey, I’ve been doing researches browsing a lot. But at the end of my research, I ALWAYS get back to the Wealthy Affiliate platform to get Kyle’s advice. This time is the same. If you are wondering who is Kyle, he is a founder of the Wealthy Affiliate, a very well-known online platform for online marketers.

Kyle has been in this business for more than 15 years, experienced all kinds of updates in the industry, and last but not least, he is a very successful entrepreneur.


Here is what Kyle says about backlinks in detail. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO READ THIS ARTICLE. 

Are backlinks required? Do you need them for your business, will you benefit from backlinks?

The answer to these questions is NO. Kyle points out in this very useful article the 6 key points for your SEO success:

  1. Your content quality
  2. Targeting keywords
  3. LSI within your content
  4. Engagement comments
  5. User experience
  6. Your overall website authority


Now when you have 2 completely opposite strategies that SUCCESSFUL people claim to be working, it’s up to you which one you will choose. If you ask me, I go with the aim of the most quality content I am capable of creating.

I have never made a mistake following the Wealthy Affiliate training, advice, and Kyle’s tutorials.

What is the SSL certificate?

What is the SSL certificate

What is the SSL certificate It is essential for your website’s successful SEO optimization to know what is the SSL certificate and why it is so important.

First of all, SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer.
This very important feature assures you that YOU ARE SAFE to browse the webpage you entered in the search engine and that your personal data is secure and encrypted.


Have you ever browsed the internet and opened some websites and the “warning” page popped up saying that the webpage is NOT secure and recommendable for visiting?

This usually happens because that webpage is not covered with the SSL certificate. This means that data and your personal information you might provide to this website (in case you decided to ignore this message) is not secure and not encrypted. Sometimes, you will not be able to enter the page at all.


What does this security certificate do and why you have to install it on your website?

  • It encrypts the information sent to the server. The browser will access the digital certificate and establish a secure connection whenever an internet user sends any confidential information.
  • It proves a domain ownership
  • Secures your visitor’s personal information and data
  • Boosts your website’s Google ranking


How do you know that the website has installed SSL?

  1. You will see the lock next to the URL typed in the browser
  2. The website’s URL starts with HTTPS. The letter S at the end of the HTTP stands for SECURE



Where you can find the SSL certificate and how to turn it on?

Every provider offers SSL certificates. This is something that I consider as a mandatory feature to have in order to achieve successful SEO optimization.

When you visit your hosting account, for example, SiteGround, you will see that there is an option to turn ON the SSL certificate feature. You just have to turn it on. This automatically installs the certificate on your website.


Now what you have to do is to start the plugin on your WordPress website which supports the SSL certificate and you are all set.



The plugin recommended to use for this is Really Simple SSL. You just need to download it and activate the SSL with one click on the activation button.

Activating SSL certificate


You will see that your URL changed from Http to HttpS. 


IMPORTANT steps before the SSL activation:

  1. Back up your website
  2. In case you can’t find your SSL certificate in your hosting account, contact customer support, they will be more than happy to help you
  3. Some providers charge an annual fee for SSL. I strongly recommend the Wealthy Affiliate as they provide free certification, customer support, and even easier installation of the SSL certificate. And if you are just starting your WordPress blog, you will find amazingly detailed step-by-step training to successfully build and run your business.


How to verify that your SSL certificate is working properly?

You can verify this in several ways. First, check within your WordPress if the plugin is enabled.



When you click on the little lock next to your URL the window with all the information about your certificate will pop up and it will be written CONNECTION IS SECURE. You can find more details within this window:




An SSL certificate contains the following information:

  • The certificate holder’s and issuer’s names
  • The certificate serial number, issue, and expiration date
  • A copy of the certificate holder’s public key

You can find this information on every website you browse. It’s public.


Does the SSL have an expiration date?

The SSL certificate does have an expiration date, but this is renewed automatically when is provided for free. If your hosting provider charges for the Security certificate, then, you will just have to renew it manually with the payment.


So let’s recap:

SSL certificate is the NUMBER ONE tool you are recommended to have installed on your website in order to gain Google trust and higher rankings, therefore better SEO optimization of your website which of course brings more audience and ultimately a SUCCESS to your business!


What else is important to know?

Since a few years ago, Google made this feature pretty much mandatory. The SSL certificate assures your website is safe for your visitors and Google appreciates that.


This leads to trust as SAFETY is your number one priority as well right? It’s the same for your visitors. Since we are talking business here, you want to make sure that people will trust your website when entering their personal information especially when your business is selling products.


Now before you go I would like to point out one more important feature in the online industry.

I recommend that you check the WEALTHY AFFILIATE as this is my NUMBER ONE online platform. This is the first place for me to look for information, updates in the online marketing industry, new features, and more than anything security! And it’s free to join.


You are a newbie in the online business world and you can’t wait to achieve your financial freedom?

What Is SEO Optimization?


What-is-SEO-optimizationNo matter what is the core of your business, SEO is a fundamental part of your work. Today, we will discuss what is SEO optimization and why is it important for your website and your business.


What does SEO stand for?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is the practice that increases your web page rankings in the search engine. This means, the better the SEO, the higher the rankings, so your pages appear higher in search results. This brings more organic traffic to your website and ultimately a SUCCESS to your business.


Why is SEO important to you?

SEO helps you understand what content are people searching for online, what answers they wish to find, the words they are using in their research. When you know the answers to these questions, you are more than able to connect with your audience. And your audience is those seeking the solutions YOU OFFER.

So.. the question is: What is your target audience looking for and how you can serve them better? 

The answer to these two questions lies in the successfully established SEO strategy. There are 10 factors you need to know and work on:


1. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

  • Your-website-is-secureThe very first one is to make sure that your website is secure and accessible. This means that your website has to be supported by the SSL. This certificate creates a secure link between your website and the visitor’s browser.

2. Page speed and mobile page speed

  • It is important to make sure that your website is fast loading. This profoundly affects your SEO.

3. Mobile friendliness of your website 

  • Most people browse the internet on their mobile phones. Therefore this is very essential for your website’s SEO and your successful business. This sometimes depends on the WordPress theme you are using. Some of them are not mobile-friendly, and if that is the case with yours, you can easily change it and install the one which is mobile-friendly.

4. Domain Age, URL, and authority

Check out THIS FREE DETAILED TUTORIAL about these 10 ranking factors found on the Wealthy Affiliate platform.


What is a successful SEO strategy to establish your business and brand online?

The steps I am going to list in this chapter are to be followed at least once a month:

  • Perform keywords research

Since SEO helps you find what your target audience is looking for, keyword research can help inspire new content on your webpage. Good SEO connects you to the audience who are searching for the solutions you offer. So at least once a month identify the information your visitors are seeking, and make a list of the top 10 keywords for your business.
I use JAAXY keyword research tool for this process. 

  • Optimize your website 

Make sure your website has the SSL certificate up and running, check the website speed, and if your website is mobile-friendly on a regular bases

  • Optimize your new content EVERY TIME, as soon as you create it!
  • Keep building BACKLINKS
  • Share your new content on social media to drive organic traffic to your website


This SEO formula should be applied at least once a month.


How else you can help your SEO?


Create a Google my business profile on google.com/business



There are many advantages to this feature:

  • This is fundamental for local business owners. This account gives you more than a business listing. It is free, easy to set up and it lets you connect with customers across Google platforms like GOOGLE SEARCH and GOOGLE MAPS. The Google business profile will GROW YOUR SEO by pointing to your website and sending people from the Google business TO your website, page, online store.
  • Google my business account helps you get customers with a great business profile
  • It gives your customers more ways to reach you
  • Here you can get reviews for your business and build customer trust
  • You can set up your business hours here


Use the power of social media and video


Google loves videos, so make sure that you successfully build your YouTube channel and connect it to your website. Video builds trust and boosts conversions and sales. You can explain everything through video marketing. It also encourages shares on social media which ultimately brings more organic traffic to your website.


Optimize your YouTube videos by using some of the top 10 keywords you researched for before, using the keyword phrases you found people are typing in google



It is very important to have consistency across your social media accounts. This means giving all your profiles a consistent image, relevant bio, and link to your website.

Once you have all of them running smoothly, they will act as perfect backlinks for your website. And you remember that backlinks are one of the 1o ranking factors for successful SEO.


A great tool that helps your SEO. There is software where you can program all your posts for Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram. Consistency is one of the key factors for successful SEO optimization. Google loses consistency. Scheduling your posts will bring exactly that. This also builds interest in your website within your audience.

Just think about how you like to visit certain websites to check what’s new there. You want to build that habit in your audience as well. This is one more reason why you might want to schedule your posts so you have them posted regularly.

My personal reason for doing this is because sometimes I have so much inspiration for writing, that I could write 3 or 4 articles at once. And sometimes I am not in that phase so here comes the benefit of the scheduling posts.

It ensures that my website brings new content even when I am not in a moment of inspiration. And this happens to everyone. Trust me!


Let’s recap: What are the key points for SEO success?

  1. Find the keywords for your business
  2. Use social media to drive traffic
  3. Optimize your website
  4. Be consistent
