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 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.
