Having somewhere online that you can go to get the up to date information that needs to help you make money online is vital. Today I am going to do a Wealthy Affiliate Review. WA is an online affiliate marketing training website. The review will be based on my time within the community of the website including the training, support, and tools they offer.
Before we dive into the full review Let’s just answer the question – What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is when you promote another company s product and service and when someone buys these products or services you get paid a commission. These commissions will vary from 1% right up to 100%.
It is an amazing way to generate extra or even full-time income from the comfort of your own home without having the hassle of holding stock or creating products.
Okay so Let’s see what Wealthy Affiliate is all about.

You Can Sign Up For Free
Upon signing up for the free account on Wealthy Affiliate I was directed through to the main members’ area, there is a lot going on but the first thing you are instructed to do is complete your profile …. this is just like any other online profile.
Just use a great head and shoulders image of yourself is recommended (and you are more likely to get other members’ to connect with you). I also added a description too. This can be a few words or a lengthy piece it’s up to you.
On completing these tasks I had over 20 members’ connect with me instantly which was very reassuring that others were there, all offering support and guidance.
You don’t get that on Facebook! LOL

Create Your Website In 30 Seconds
The website’s section is where you can build your own websites. The websites are built on the WordPress platform which in my opinion is the best platform in the world. As a Starter member, you can create 2 websites absolutely free of charge, no need for a domain name or hosting.
Where else can you get that deal ?… In total, you can have up to 50 that’s right FIFTY of your own websites hosting on their platform… it’s just incredible!
The site manager allows you to see all your sites from one easy dashboard, enabling you to log in directly from Wealthy Affiliate and change passwords as well as monitoring the health of your site.
This section gives you just one click to install the website .. it honestly takes you 30 seconds no lie. For the non-tech y person, this is a dream.
If you have your own domain you can use it, or purchase one directly from the Wealthy Affiliate site. They even give you the option to create a domain on their hosting platform for free … I did this to test it out… Worked a treat I did then buy a domain and they switched over the site and Newbie Affiliate was born.
Wealthy Affiliate has made creating content so simple for you. Within Site content, you can create pages and posts and then upload directly to your site without even going onto your site. I personally have never seen this before and again for those not familiar with the WordPress dashboard it makes it crazy easy to populate your website with content.
I have just reached a milestone of 50 posts published through this system. Not bad for someone that failed English … TWICE!
All of the above features are available to Starter members’ so there really isn’t an easier way to get a free website live on the internet.
Tools To Help You Included
Within the Starter membership, you also get access to their own keyword research tool Jaaxy plus you can have up to 30 searches (which I found to be plenty for loads of research)
On the premium membership, you get access to Jaaxy lite for free which includes unlimited searches, plus you can track historical rankings and monitor your website authority. Building and managing your keyword lists can be done on the platform as well as spying on your competition.
Finding relevant affiliate programs within your niche is another feature you can use too.
What Information Do You Get?
When you do a search through Jaaxy you will get the following information.
- Keyword – You get a list of keywords or phrases relevant to the keyword you typed into the search bar
- Avg – The average number of searches made for this keyword in one month
- Traffic – The approximate amount of traffic you could achieve with a first-page ranking
- QSR – Quoted Search Results the number of competing websites ranked in Google for that exact keyword.
- KQI – Keyword quality indicator evaluates the quality of the keyword green is good red is bad
- SEO – A score based on traffic and competition the higher the number the better chance of ranking
I actually used Jaaxy to get the keyword term ” a Wealthy Affiliate Review “.
Chat With Other Members
The live chat facility is great to ask questions or meet like-minded people. You get access for 7 days as a Starter member. I found that members’ were very quick to answer any queries I had and offer support and encouragement too. I do find myself live chats somewhat frustrating and don’t use it that much but this is just personal preference.
They Have Got You Covered
The support so far has been amazing, both Kyle and Carson have both offered help on any questions and you can private message them if needed. If further support is needed, then WA has their own help center with a team of dedicated professionals ready to help you out.
Don’t forget the classrooms! These are discussion rooms for set areas of online marketing, ask your question and someone will help you out.
There are many different topics such as WordPress, Social engagement, affiliate marketing, SEO, email marketing and the list goes on and on.
Having already had communication with both owners and plenty of helpful community members’ I have found the support second to none.
6 Months On
Well, I have now been a member for six months now and I have started to get some amazing results. I have managed to gain the number one rankings in Google for certain keywords and now have traffic flowing every day to my site.
Last month I had over 10,000 page views with a really low bounce rate too. I have never had this before with any of my other sites. I know there are still loads to learn and my site will continue to grow.
My network within the WA community is now over 1600 followers and growing every day.
Here’s proof. I have mashed up a few images to save some space…
