It is active but you are unable to do any editing to your website or make any money with it unless you pay the premium membership fee. Do not quote me but I believe you have exactly one year after cancelling to renew or you can forget having the option of having your website back. Basically what I am saying is you are denied access until you pay your dues, isn’t that so kind of Kyle and Carson?!


Have you followed all courses of WA and submit the website to Google WebMaster tool and Google Analytic for indexing or not? Haven't you taken more than 10 basic lessons of WA? Without submitting your sitemap to Google WebMaster Tool, your website can't be index in Google. About it you can find well explained in WA lessons. Once you submit the sitemap to Google WebMaster Tool, it may take upto 1 month to index your website by Google. If you want your website get indexed fast after you submit to Google WebMaster Tool, then you can keep on posting as many contents as you can. More contents you post in your website, Google will index it more soon. However, first step is to submit your website to Google WebMaster Tool.

Before accuse us that we only promote Wealthy Affiliate and declare all other platforms are scams, we suggest you to check our "Good and Trusted Online Works" page as well as "Promising Online Works" page through our website's navigation menu where you can find we have listed several kinds of online work companies, not only Wealthy Affiliate. So, it is not that we only promote Wealthy Affiliate. If we find some good companies, we recommend and promote those as well because if we promote more companies, we can earn more money. So, why do we only want to promote Wealthy Affiliate? If we find some good companies, always we say that is good and promote that because in that way we can make more money than saying that company is bad and promoting Wealthy Affiliate only. So, before accusing us, first of all think yourself generally and also navigate our whole website.
Just for a bit of entertainment and amusement, I recently opened a new account with Wealthy Affiliate. My intention is to ask a few awkward questions in the week that I have before they expect money. Please let me know if you want me to ask either “The Community” or the man himself any questions. I don’t care if I get thrown out so any question is OK. I doubt if I’ll last a week so make it snappy! BTW I already asked why Kyle does not follow all his 1.5M members and got a standard reply which has absolutely nothing to do with the question.
I don't promote WA and the training pushed me in a direction to promote something else. The idea is that you can create a business online working withing a category that you have passion in.  For me that is woodworking, but for others this is likely soemthing completely different.  There are lots of directions you can head.  People that say that the training is all about promoting the same company obviously have not gone through the training.  I didn't get a sense of that.  

Don't worry, there is not any hidden cost or upsells in Wealthy Affiliate. It won't charge you anything other than the Wealthy Affiliate membership fee which covers full hosting for 25 websites, completely free keyword research tool, premium website themes, 24 hour support, SSL security, Site Speed feature, Spam Blocker feature, Site Health Check-Up with suggestion for improvements, all necessary Plugins, completely compatible platform with WordPress, Site Content feature to help you write content easily and so on. The only additional cost you have to pay is $13 to $15 per year per domain other than the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership fee. Besides that, there is not any additional upsells or hidden cost within Wealthy Affiliate. So, Wealthy Affiliate premium membership is very cheap since it provides hosting for 25 websites with all those support, tools and training which will help you to create your own successful website business online in your own subject of interest.


This type of marketing is a great opportunity for businesses if used in the right way, but it is also a way to show off for the direct marketing agencies and advertising, because if they put all their creativity to the strategy really shocking advertising may arise and will be long remembered by the public (and attract potential customers). The first example of direct marketing that I put is on the car brand Toyota Corolla Watch this video!
You sign up for FREE and never not once charge you a dime!! Unless you choose to upgrade that is your choice to do so! They never force or hassle money out of your pocket unlike other MLM companies online that try to make you scale up! Now that's SCAMMING ppl to not let them have the opportunity to have hands on access. WA they give you ALL ACCESS!! And people complaint about WA?? Are you kidding me!! I love Wealthy Affiliate and if some of you have issues about them them try to have myself and a million other followers and WA affiliates say anything negative... but that will suck because there is NOTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT WEALTHY AFFILIATES. And as far as I know Kyle is NEVER rude!! Let's make that VERY CLEAR!!
When I enrolled in WA, I almost immediately had misgivings, which I ignored at first, about two things: 1) using their platform to build sites, as you mentioned, and 2) the bootcamp, which had too much of a circular flavor for my taste – and for my trust. I was actually surprised that so many people would promote WA instead of developing a personal niche. Looking backwards, bootcamp sites are easy to spot: they all have a link at the top called “My #1 Recommendation” or something similar. So much for originality.

7. Rakuten was formerly known as Buy.com and has since grown into a monster. Rakuten ranks among the top three e-commerce companies in the world with over 90,000 products from 38,500 shop owners and more than 18 million customers. Among its numerous online properties, its flagship B2B2C (business-to-business-to-consumer) model e-commerce site Rakuten Ichiba is the largest e-commerce site in Japan and among the world’s largest by sales.
It was really a good post. Very detail information and described well. I have started my own with Amazon and also put there as shop for baby products from amazon. I am clear about my target customers but I don’t know how to reach them and from where to start. I have put my effort in the site and review but now need a through for my site. My site is about Barbie Dream House With Elevator usually kids like with and along with that all barbie products are also available and also baby products, health product are available in… Read more »

I have been out here still pursuing my interest and it’s pretty FREAKIN rough . Just this afternoon i found myself engaged in a three hour batitle royal with Jetpack , WordPress , and the God that is Google over one post .

Plus , they stole my domain !!! I been out here on my own for a month . I’ve pulled in $11 bucks . So yeah , you could say I’m Ballin. UP YOURS KYLE & CARSON !!!!!!!!!
If you have skills and are a website developer, graphic designer, professional writer or something like that then you may not need basic instructions and need to learn as you go but for the rest of us, having a plan and working consistently and always learning is what wealthy affiliate can offer and my investment is worth every cent. I am saving $300 a year on hosting on just one website (for my offline business) I have moved from a local hosting company to wealthy affiliate… I make $300 a year without doing a darn thing…

Whether its keyword research, content optimization, or checking your current page rankings, every marketer needs a go-to tool for planning what content to create and how to optimize it for SEO. Google Analytics and SEMrush our great tools for planning which keywords to rank for, but how do you make sure the content you create actually meets your goal once it's created?
Yes, it costs money, but starting any business takes an investment. The key is to invest wisely, be frugal, and make sure you’re investing in the right things. With Wealthy Affiliate Premium you are literally getting absolutely everything you’ll need to start a successful business online. From the training to the web building tools to the website hosting, backup, security, and support – it’s all there in one place at a very reasonable price.

But thing is, SFM (six figure mentors) does a really similar thing. They are almost identical to wealthy affiliate. They also have an option for their members (cough cough, elite members only) to become affiliates for their platform. Very shady if I may say so indeed. I am not saying that SFM is a scam, but it may highly likely be one in my opinion. I plan to cancel my membership with wealthy affiliate as soon as possible. Luckily I haven’t created a website yet.

Yes it is definitely not a get rich quick scheme, it takes A LOT of work – which is what I try to get across in this review. You need to be comfortable with doing a lot of work for 6 months and not get paid a dime. That is not something that many people can follow through with. But it is, unfortunately, part of the process, and it can lead to very satisfying results later on.
I don't promote WA and the training pushed me in a direction to promote something else.

Good news is, Wealthy Affiliate goes on to say that within the first few lessons you’re going to learn the techniques that will allow you to get an abundance, no wait…ABUNDANCE of relevant customers to your site by way of organic search. Most folks reading this have no idea just how difficult this is. If you know how to do it, then it’s mainly just hard work, but for those of you that don’t understand the process…you’re in for a long education full of trial and error.
5 - You last paragraph would be great if you DID actually make points in the rest of your complaint. The only REAL point you made was subliminal. You proved you were out to get something for free. You were not listening to the promo information and you would not go thru the training. So you don't have to be a member but it looks like it was not for you. 

All this post has done is show me how little people actually ‘see’ when they look at something. Everything is in front of them but they can’t see the forest for the trees. Every time someone asked why haven’t I made money after 3, 6, 12 months they are told ‘it takes time – making money online is not get rich quick” so why are commenters knocking wealthy affiliate because they haven’t made money quickly???


Yes, Wealthy Affiliate is free to try and it also provides the option to make money free of cost as well as provide 10 basic lessons, lots of free training by community members and the hosting of 2 websites free of cost about which we have already explained above in our WA review. However, you will definitely learn lots of things, get hosting for 50 websites and earn a good income by upgrading your account.
The key is to first validate your niche by looking at search trends, analyzing the competition and making sure it’s something that can be monetized. Once you’ve got that, start building it out and producing great content. Focus on nothing but the rankings for at least 6-12 months. During this time I would advise putting nothing on the site except for maybe a simple adsense ad. Adsense is not a profitable way to go per se, but it’s an easy way to get started, plus Google must continually sniff your site in order to serve up relevant ads. Site visitors generally find adsense to be less invasive since the ads shown to them are usually relevant anyway.

Hi Craig, I’ve recently signed up for wealthy affiliate and have upgraded my account to premium (I have been a premium member for 5 days now). I am now beginning to think that Wealthy Affiliate really isn’t what it is set out to be. It is very shady of them and unethical to gradually persuade people into promoting their own platform and having control over their domains and websites.


Being a current premium member of WA since 2015, active on and off mostly off, but hosting three sites with them, two professional and one monetized, I was expecting to thoroughly disagree with your review; however, I was in many respects surprised and pleased. For the most part, it was insightful and spot-on and while I do see and agree with many of your assertions, I don’t necessarily agree with your conclusion.

I have been a web professional for many years and worked for a number of industries promoting their digital products in Australia I agree to your “you never want to have all of your eggs in one basket” as you never know when a server goes down, the hosting company goes defunct or it decides to shut your website down due to a dispute which can throw your online business into a black hole. Getting full control of your site at your fingertips to do as much as I want, add in customised features to please your visitors is the ideal setting for me.
Like we have said before, you can choose any option, means you can earn money by selling products of companies like Amazon, eBay or without selling anything as well, from services like Google Adsense, Media.net and so on. So, your exact job role is not a job, but with Wealthy Affiliate you can create your own online business. So, you will be not a job holder there, but will be an online business person.

Direct marketing, using catalogues, was practiced in 15th-century Europe. The publisher Aldus Manutius of Venice printed a catalogue of the books he offered for sale. In 1667, the English gardener, William Lucas, published a seed catalogue, which he mailed to his customers to inform them of his prices. Catalogues spread to colonial America, where Benjamin Franklin is believed to have been the first cataloguer in British America. In 1744, he produced a catalogue of scientific and academic books.[6]
