Lesson 1 – Your Own Domain, Your Brand.
This lesson goes over the reasons it’s important to have your own domain that you have full control. The siterubrix website you have with free membership is great for getting started, but it will not rank as well as your own domain. The lesson covers these points well and will show you how you can buy a domain with Wealthy Affiliates SiteDomain. Two tasks for this lesson see below:
Lesson 2 – Move On Over, My Brand Has Arrived
This lesson teaches you how to move your siterubrix to your own domain. This means all the work you have done in lesson 2 is saved and moved to your new domain. This is important because your content will start to rank quickly.

The site feedback system is a unique feature of Wealthy Affiliate where you receive feedback about your site and can receive comments on your posts which helps with your ranking. 6 Tasks for this lesson.
Lesson 5 – The Traffic Breakdown
In this lesson, you learn the most current and powerful content marketing techniques and how content can lead to mass traffic. You are guided through creating a keyword rich post to publish to your site to start attracting visitors to your site, and the more visitors the more the site produces.
Lesson 6 – Making Use of Visuals
In this lesson, you will learn how to find images that suit the post you are creating. Most people are attracted initially by the look and feel of your website. The more attractive your images are the more likely it is someone will visit and stay on your page. At this point in the journey it’s about starting to finetune your site to increase retention on your site, because that is one metric that the search engines measure to assess your site’s authority.
Lesson 7 – Understanding the Low Hanging Fruit
In this lesson, it’s about targeting keywords that you can rank for. New sites don’t often rank that well for the high value keywords straight out of the gate because the search engines do not know how much authority or relevance the site has in relation to the high value keywords. This is why in the beginning sites target keywords with less competition and there are thousands of them.
Lesson 8 – Making face as a real person
Strange name for this lesson, but the message is clear, build trust with your audience by creating an avatar that will become the author and authority for your site. The lesson goes over the reason for doing this and the process of creating an avatar.
Lesson 9 – Amplifying Your Productivity
Learning to be productive consistently is the one thing that will determine the rate at which you achieve your goals. I struggled with this due to competing priorities, and still do, but this lesson helped me greatly to increase my productivity.
