Google Analytics is a measurement tool for your website where you can link your website to see how many visitors are visiting your website. Analytics provide the full traffic details of your website like the real-time visitors, the places from where traffic is coming into your website, keywords which are using to find your contents, traffic source of your website and so on.

Some of the tools(not all) on this page contain affiliate links which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no other cost to you. Please understand that I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals. Thanks!
Yes, you have to have something bought from you in order to get paid, but as an affiliate marketer, you are more of a middleman than a seller. Like a car salesman if anything. I’d say the entire world of affiliate marketing is a bit of a grey area because of the profits that are involved. Because I feel like affiliate marketers may be more like advertisers trying to sell you a product many times rather than actually give an honest outlook on a product and anything wrong with it. Not telling the entire truth
Thank you very much. I signed up to a few here and I am very grateful to you for making all of this valuable information available – you have saved me time. I could not sign up to Shopify as it just kept on reloading page to SIGN IN and not create a new account – confusing. VigLink does not allow a new account sign up either.. Rakuten did not say if they charge to be apart of their affiliate prog and actually there is no sign up for that option. If you can help me with these three prog’s… Read more »
If you had already joined Wealthy Affiliate (WA), then first of all click "Get Started Here" green bar on the left hand side menu of WA and start to learn the lessons. You will soon understand the system of WA after learning lessons there. We are telling you this because from your queries it is clear that you didn't understand anything at all about WA. There is not any comparison between WA and TrafficMonsoon (TM) because TM is just an advertising company where there is always risk of site getting down as those kind of business rarely sustain for longer time and more than that TM doesn't offer the real online work where as WA is king of real online work field. WA is the platform to learn everything about online work industry. Through the lessons of WA, you will learn to earn by doing real online works such as by making your own money making website, by selling stuffs of big companies like Ebay, Amazon etc., by advertisements of Google Adsense and many more. You will also learn to make referrals in expert way in any online work companies you work (such as in TM). You will also earn from affiliates you make within WA. You can try to advertise your WA's referral link within TM as well, but don't expect to get decent amount quality referrals from there. Once you learn all courses within WA, then you will even get the idea to get huge number of active referrals in any program you work. So, first of all follow the lessons of WA one by one, step by step.
I joined at the beginning of WA started. then, it promoted as today a free platform, (also has a premium subscription which has more features). After a long time, they started to ban countries one after another. as you mention that those countries are cheating and haking their platform, It is the most laughable excuse. WA is a business, and they give the free account so that in future those people will become paid members. but they find out, members of those poor countries will never become a paid member. So the claim that those countries are cheaters and hackers. It is a dishonest move of them.
What this does mean, though, is that because you will learn whitehat techniques you have to do the work to see the results. This makes it harder to rank any of your websites on Google, but this is a good thing. This just points more to the fact that Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam. What they teach you are real SEO techniques that even professionals use. 
Please if there is a way you can help us here in Nigeria, I would will really appreciate it. I am from Nigeria, and I have been looking for a legitimate online business that I can start this year, fortunately I came across his program “Wealthy Affiliate”. But now I discovered that Nigeria is not included in the program, I will love to join the premium package if there is way.
Affiliate Network is the process where publishers/affiliates can generate income by promoting products or services of companies which offer affiliate programs like eBay, Amazon, JVzoo, Jimdo and so on. In other words, the Affiliate Network is a business that acts an intermediary between publishers/affiliates and affiliate programs (programs which offer people the opportunity to earn commission by selling their products and services). Affiliate Network helps affiliates/publishers find and participate more easily in affiliate programs which are suitable according to their website niche so that they can generate good income just by promoting products or services of other companies for which they don't need to have their own products or services and don't need to bother with shipment or delivery of products. Everything will be done by affiliate programs. The publishers/affiliates just need to promote those products and provide the unique affiliate link of those programs within their website to promote them so that when someone click those links from those publisher's website and buy the products in that affiliate programs, publishers/affiliates can earn commission completely in passive way. Affiliate Network is the best legit and passive way to generate good income online on regular basis.
That’s a good question. I wrote an article on affiliate links that you can find on my site. It goes over everything on where to add them on a blog, social media account, YouTube videos, etc. Hope that helps! And you don’t always need a blog to promote affiliate links, as you could do it on social media or other channels. However, I recommend starting your own blog as you need a consistent audience to generate affiliate revenue.
Once you’ve created an amazing video to share on social media or your website, where will you put it? The default seems to be YouTube, which is quick and easy but comes with less control and potentially some unrelated ads or suggestions. Wistia is made for marketers’ videos because the player keeps people on your page—or sends them precisely where you want them to go next.
Some countries are blocked by Wealthy Affiliate only to join as free member in order to increase security measures. You can find the list of those countries and the reason to block them within our review as above at last paragraph. If you belong to one of those countries, then also you can still join Wealthy Affiliate directly as premium member by paying $47 and will get all facilities and features which all premium members in WA will get. However, if you don't belong to one of those countries, then contact us again by mentioning the name of your country and the problem that you are facing while trying to register in WA.
You will get free hosting for 25 websites, full training to make money from your own website in your own niche, full support from Wealthy Affiliate team, latest updated training, weekly live training, keyword tool and so on all just by paying the premium membership fee of Wealthy Affiliate. You don't have to pay any extra fee for keyword research tool. There are not any hidden charges. The only additional charge you have to pay is for website domain which will cost $13 per year and about that also Wealthy Affiliate has already mentioned upfront. That's all.

Affilorama – While I promoted Affilorama in the past, I no longer do for many reasons. It has simply become too outdated. Affilorama also lacks in some of the training. Instead, they focus on helping you get started quickly by designing a site for you and seeding it with content. Some of the optional training courses they sell are quite expensive and compares to an entire annual membership at Wealthy Affiliate, so that’s why I no longer promote them. Again, they are worth checking out, but I think Wealthy Affiliate is a much better buy.


Affiliate networks offer you access to multiple (and by multiple, we mean hundreds if not thousands) of individual affiliate programs. They basically work by simplifying the signup process - instead of applying to become an affiliate for a each product you want to promote, you simply apply to join the network and instantly have access to hundreds of different affiliate offers.
I know there are no guarantees in life and I am by no means an expert but with market saturation and even with countless niches/products/ideas what is the guarantee that a newbie like myself will make a successful monthly income of say even US$500 per month much less $3000. Put another way what can go absolutely wrong if I follow all the lessons (which may not be all that original)? Also in affiliate marketing do we get guarantees on choice of product, platform and also we have overheads (small as they are comparably to other businesses) do we make clear profit above these overheads?

Wow. This was very well done. I learned so much and I've been on the site for a month. You did an excellent job explaining how the program works and its nuances. Thank you for the updates on banned countries. I'm sure I did not know the challenges WA faced in other countries. The service needs to stay available to everyone. I will certainly follow your in the future. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply, but you didn’t really deny my statement that being an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate is essentially being part of a pyramid scheme. My review was mostly negative though, so I’m not really an affiliate. But why is it that you barely mentioned how you have to struggle to make money via commissions in Wealthy Affiliate? Or how most of the program consists of writing content? Could’ve mentioned how this program is not for people not really interested in writing because you have to be interested and love what you do in order to be committed. You only mentioned that this is not a get rich quick scheme like once, which is cliche nowadays because of that Tai Lopez guy, so people may think that only time is needed, but making money will be a piece of cake. False reassurance essentially. Meanwhile, most members are struggling to make a commission based on the blogs I read. That’s why I will just focus on product reviews and not stress out about writing articles. Lastly, I feel like showing your earnings is not exactly proof, but rather motivation for them to join as they feel like they can make that too, but that only means you keep receiving the earnings to get new people in the future to pay for membership and repeat the cycle.
The ads in affiliate programs are linked to company websites and are referred to as affiliate links. Affiliates generally have to apply for the affiliate programs, though the majority of the affiliate programs cost nothing to join. When an online visitor click the affiliate link, the visitor is redirected to the advertiser's website and if the customer/visitor makes a purchase, the affiliate is then paid a commission.
