My Review of Wealthy Affiliate

I welcome you to my review of Wealthy Affiliate and I hope everyone who comes in and out will find a helpful reading.  I would like to share with you the things I deem as helpful to Wealthy Affiliate would-be affiliates.

In my age, the Twenty-First Century is the techno age both in the use of Cell phones and the Internet.


I use them for the following purposes:

First, in the use of emails because it is needed and part of the facilitation of our work.

Second, the use of cell phones is an intolerable urge for all ages from children, youths to adults.

Third, being a Facebook fan had greatly taken advantage of manual work like sending letters through the post offices.

In addition to those, is the online business that invites every individual from different vocations, professionals, non-degree holders, non-college graduates, and even High School students are on the online venture searching anything related to what they are after to find solutions.

Part of the online advancement and development is business creating an opportunity for everyone and anyone income for their family and loved ones.

But alongside it as the online open for an income opportunity, the devil takes its way and victimizes a lot of those online researchers.  It’s a devastating experience to lose your money to illegal, immoral opportunists who only think of themselves as the only needy one in terms of money.


We haven’t heard of scammers being penalized, am I right?

Those names should have been published so we can know them but I haven’t read anything.  Try to see if the listed scammers online have been apprehended and penalized. No, they are still free to do and live as they wish.

This is the reason why this review is published for us to look into the legit and moral organizations and companies in which we can entrust our hard-earned money, the money that should be shared by our own family.

My Wealthy Affiliate Review

Wealthy Affiliate Features You Should Know

Wealthy Affiliate has been 14 years in existence and operation since it was established in 2005 by the co-owners Kyle Loudoun and Carson Lim.

What are the features you can see inside Wealthy Affiliate? I would not cover everything but I will present some only that has a bearing on me and you as a reader. I see it important which you should not miss.

 

A. Domain Registrar and a Website Host

Do you know that Wealthy Affiliate is a domain registrar and a website host? Yes!  This rules out the impression during the early stage of Wealthy Affiliate that it is a scam.

I would like to put it in public although Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t shout it, that Wealthy Affiliate and Amazon has a level of understanding and partnership when it comes to Website Hosting.  I discovered that due to my curiosity on the internet.

So when it comes to capability Wealthy Affiliate has stepped up to the level that it couldn’t be considered as one of the fly-by-night sites.  In fourteen years many sites have been shut down but Wealthy Affiliate has grown not as a mere website but has the services that offer to dedicated people to do online business.

The pricing will be presented later on as you continue reading.

 

B. Wealthy Affiliate Online University or the Education Offered

This is how they describe what you can find inside:

“The Education at Wealthy Affiliate isn’t just simple, it’s better in every single way. From the moment that you join you are going to be walked through our state of the art, step-by-step training platform. For newbies and advanced marketers alike, our focus with all of our training is teaching you how to create a successful, long-term business within the online space”.

There are two groups of learning processes within the Wealthy Affiliate. You can see it in the following:

3. Online Entrepreneur Certification – Making Money! Level 3

4. Online Entrepreneur Certification – Mastering Social Engagement Level 4

The Affiliate Bootcamp-This is the second group otherwise called as trainings.  More advanced because more technical tasks are added.

1. WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Getting Your Business Rolling-Phase 1

2. WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Content, Keywords, and Conversions-Phase 2

3. WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Giving Your Site Social Value PHASE 3

C. The Community Chat Feature

As if you are on Facebook when you are either at Starter Membership or a Premium Membership.

The number of its members cannot be exactly traced but there are thousands interacting online every day in the community chat. They come from different cultures, expertise, professions, religions, ideologies but they respect each other.  You can read additional info here.

This feature allows the member participants to ask for help, extend help through a direct answer to the questions. You can blog an answer to the community’s concern.


What are taboos in the community chat?

1. Spamming-no personal website is advertised in the community.  You can ask any question that may arise from your site but do not publish your website’s URL in order to promote.

2. Religious campaign-members come from different religious groups but campaigning for the advancement of your own religion is strictly prohibited.  If there are teachings that could help anyone you can share it but other’s opinion is openly respected.

3. Scammers-doing the tricks of scammers outside is a ground for disciplinary action by WA Management.  It can be the basis for Wealthy Affiliate to give restrictions for limited access to the community if the doer ceases not to heed the call.

4. Love, Courtship, and Marriage-not allowed here.  I haven’t seen anyone proposing love to a woman or any conversations related to love between the opposite sex.  There seem to have attempted but they did not succeed.  Discussions are open and are not restricted but when it compromises respect and privacy for anyone it’s being sanctioned.  Business is only for business and other matters have their own venue outside the community.

 

D. The Price Package

This price comparison is all about Domain only which is for yearly renewal.  Premium membership pricing is another story where Wealthy Affiliate offers $49 per month which is far cheaper than all other Web Hosts. Godaddy.com. Namecheap.com, Name.com, and other domain registrars and web hosts offer different monthly prices.

My Review of Wealthy Affiliate-WA price package

In Web Hosting, for Premium Membership, it will cost you for only $49.00 per month which is $588 for the whole year.  However, if you go for an annual payment, meaning you will pay the twelve months at once you will only pay a total of $359.00 per Year. You have been discounted for $229.00.


E. WA Site Rubix features the following
:  Site Manager, Site Builder, Site Domains, Site Content, Site Comments, Site Feedback, and Site Support. You can have additional details about Site Rubix here

Building Authority Website is Likened to Planting a Tree

Can you imagine how long a tree can grow until you can start reaping its fruits? I am a farmer and I know how it takes to wait.

Plant According to Plan

Picking a choice of what plant you are going to sow depends on your plan. I would like to invite you to walk with me in the rural life area where I spent several years of my life.

We survived through the use of slash and burn system in the upland areas.  We use to call this “kaingin” wherein we cut the trees and clean everything from the virgin forest or open forest, leave it there for several weeks to completely dry and then burn it, so the fire will consume all that it can reach over the intended area.

After burning the following days we have to clean whatever is left and then wait for the first rain to come and then plant it with grains.

First Cropping- is the rice grains-we usually use the variety that can wrestle with the pests and it does not need fertilizers and that kind usually last for four months until the harvest time. This usually falls from September to October.

Second Cropping- after harvesting the rice we have to clean to be planted with vegetables usually beans, monggo, peanut and others that would last for another four months.  So we plant vegetable in November or on the first week of December and be harvested at the end of February or March.

Then the cycle goes on and repeated.  After five to six years we vacate the area to give the chance for the soil to restore its declined fertility.  Why?  For the duration of five to six years harvest is no longer productive as when the soil it was newly opened.  The rice stalks become smaller and smaller every time it’s planted repeatedly, even the vegetables.

The first plan, if you think for only short time crops then it is what you will always plant.  But don’t you know that our life is from hand to mouth existence?  Yes, because “kaingin is not like watered ricefields that are vast and you can harvest hundreds of sacks of rice.  In the “kainginit is just for family sustenance and that is enough.  Sometimes not even the harvest is enough until the next harvest time.

Before the fifth and sixth year comes when the soil is no longer productive, what other options would you do as a farmer to utilize the area as the soil is laid fallow.

The second plan, fruit trees like oranges, mangoes, jackfruit, and rambutan can grow at the same duration for about six years to start bearing fruits. So alternate cropping system can be done.  During the first cropping of rice seedling of fruit trees should be planted.

Building an Authority Website is Like Planting a Tree-alternate planting

Since rice and vegetables are harvested every four months the trees are being taken cared until they grow within the span of six years.

So what happened to me, the farmer?

I have utilized the whole six years span by having the short-range cropping while waiting for the trees to grow and eventually bear fruits.

During my activity in five croppings for the rice and five croppings for vegetables, I have laid a long-range plan by planting fruit tree seedlings.  Now, the soil is no longer capable of producing vegetables and rice it is time for me to start harvesting the first fruits of the trees I planted.

Yes, I have pictured an example of a plan through a tree seedling that bears fruit for around six years but there are trees that could bear fruit in a shorter time, and these are the trees in the new agricultural technology.

Marcotted and grafted trees are examples:

Your Authority Website as a Branded Tree

Just like an agriculturist you can choose which kind of tree you are going to produce whether it be for three years or for six years but the essence of our discussion is not just producing a tree, it is the waiting attitude of the farmer.

For several times I reminded my father to plant fruit trees in his “kaingin but like any other farmers, they opt for the immediate consumption so they wanted just the rice and vegetables forgetting the fact that soil fertility declines.

After six years they have to open another area that could produce for the short term croppings and the area they used for the last six years have to be vacated without any production.

Building an authority website is likened to the two types of trees, a marcotted and grafted or the seedling planted naturally. Building Authority Website is Likened to Planting a Tree-Marcotted

Due to survival, we wanted immediate results from our sites but in most cases when we are newbies in the affiliate marketing system we cannot produce as early as we wanted.

But let us take into consideration the seedlings we planted there will come a time that it will produce fruits however we have to do some cleaning taking off the vines that may surround and suffocate the seedling into becoming a tree.  When the tree is full grown it can resist all the pressures around and just go on bearing fruit and what you will do is just to wait for the time of harvest.

According to the experienced affiliate marketer, the co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate Kyle a long-term online business can be possible in the following span of time:


What a LONG TERM Business Looks Like Online

  • Traffic is Cumulatively Starting to Grow
  • Search Engines are starting to give your site “authority”
  • You have 30-60 posts on your website
  • Earning Potential:$0-$500 per month

**Note: It took me 3 months to make my first sale online. Here I am 15 years later full time online, if I quit in the first month I would have never gotten to experience of lifelong and very fruitful business online. There is something to be said about being patient and not expecting “instant” success in business.

MONTH 6: Accomplishments

  • Sales start to increase with consistency, several per weeks
  • You are truly starting to gain some expertise and brand
  • Bing/Yahoo start indexing your site at a higher rate
  • Engagement on your site starts to increase
  • You have 60-100 posts on your site
  • Earning Potential: $500-$3,000 per month

ONE YEAR:

  • Traffic is really starting ramp up. You can expect 500+ unique per day
  • Google is granting your site with some serious authority

So being a farmer I have to bear in mind that the tree I am expecting is not an overnight process but it takes time. I don’t want to surrender after investing all my time, effort and hope in what I’ve started.  I have to pursue until the point that I would reap the harvest of what I’ve laid from the start to the 6th or 7th year. The year when the tree bears fruit.

Scamadviser My Honest Opinion

Not all reviews are factual, you will know that when they will review your own site. They will do it just to ruin the integrity of your site.

One concrete example of a review that is not true is the Scamadviser’s review of my site.  Let’s take a look at what this, scamadviser.com says about https://affiliatemarketingontheweb.com. 

This is what they say about the site:

How did affiliatemarketingontheweb.com get a Trust Score of 24%?

When checking affiliatemarketingontheweb.com we looked at many factors, such as the ownership details, location, popularity and other sites relating to reviews, threats, phishing etc. Although a site like may have a high trust rating, it’s worth just checking the countries involved as these could indicate that goods would be shipped from abroad rather than your home country.

The internet is populated with many fake and scam sites – with many being created daily purely to look genuine. Even many review sites are tainted with fake reviews making it almost impossible for somebody to detect a safe site from a scam. We attempt to analyse the website information and provide a trust guide that will help you determine the risk rating of.

Notes:-
The owner of the website is using a service to hide their identity
This website is 137 Days old
The website expected life (365 days) is relatively short.
The website appears to be less than six months old

Analysis Details:-
Although this website appears to be based in the United States there are other countries involved and you should review this information carefully and decide if it is as you expect.This website is very new, and as such doesn’t have an online reputation yet. As with all new businesses, we suggest that you take care and if necessary get in contact with the owners before placing an order of value.
This site is using an anonymous service – which prevents us from identifying the site owner. This can sometimes be just so that the owner does not receive spam, but be aware that many scam sites use this as a method to hide their identity. If this is an ecommerce site – we would suggest you confirm the business address with the website owners.

The website has been newly registered with a short life expectancy, which follows the pattern used by many fraudulent and fake selling websites. Please be vigilant and take extra care before providing any payment information.




I own this site “affiliatemarketingontheweb.com”,  and I know the review is inaccurate and fallacious.

Taking the statement,  “The website has been newly registered with a short life expectancy”.  What do they mean by “short life expectancy“?

It is obvious that this review is useless and no basis.  Is there a domain registered on a monthly, quarterly, or six months basis? 

As far as I know, every site is registered once and a domain name is renewed on a yearly basis unless you bought it for two years or five years.  Why is it categorized with a short life expectancy while in fact, a site is a site forever as long as you pay your membership to the Web Host, and for the domain to be renewed at the end of the year, every two years or five years?

For what is this “scamadviser.com” to have authority over other sites?  I would believe if it comes from WordPress, Google and other sites with authority.

They don’t know what they are talking, they just take advantage of every site to leverage through their destructive unfounded reviews.  What are we trying to point out here? They just want the traffic and they wanted to demolish any site starting to grow as a business.

Scamadviser does not really review a site but just copy their review for other sites and paste it as a review for your own site.  Take a look at this review above, copy it and compare to the other reviews of Scamadviser on other sites they are exactly the same.

Let’s take the following statements as an example:

Although a site like may have a high trust rating, it’s worth just checking the countries involved as these could indicate that goods would be shipped from abroad rather than your home country.

Is my site engaged in a shipment of products? It’s a big NO! It’s a blog site. If there are ads published on my site that’s the responsibility and reliability of the Advertisers. 

I would say, not all site reviews we read are true and there is a need to examine it. Not all sites are a reliable source of information.  Otherwise, they belong to scams because they use your site for their own personal growth and you are the victim.

If  scamadviser.com does not rectify its way of having site reviews it will continue to be categorized as a scam that people should avoid.

Scamadviser.com says “Even many review sites are tainted with fake reviews making it almost impossible for somebody to detect a safe site from a scam.” They are right for this is the kind of review they wanted people to read. They have swallowed their own words.
