How Should I do This

I've been teaching myself to build a blog at Wordpress.com, the self-hosted sight. I want it to be a showcase for my Wizzley articles. I tried copying and pasting the articles, but the ads don't transfer with it. I tried opening a link to the articles in the back of the blog. That didn't work. Is there a way this can be done? Take a look at the blog. Click on the first picture. That's the one that I tried opening the link on. Click on the other pictures and see what happens.

I'd appreciate any help I can get: http://www.incurablehomebody.com/

Nice Blog, Oh MY that darn fudge, I can run I can hide but I can't get away from it....

Why don't you link the picture links body of text  to Wizzley within the text using hyper text link?

BUT, I'm holding out for better advice.... Smile

Thanks Katie. I thought of that. Where is Paul? I bet he could give some good advice on this.

1. I tried copying and pasting the articles, but the ads don't transfer with it.

2. I tried opening a link to the articles in the back of the blog. That didn't work. Is there a way this can be done? Take a look at the blog. Click on the first picture. That's the one that I tried opening the link on. Click on the other pictures and see what happens.

1. Do you really want to display the whole article on your blog? That would be a very bad idea because of duplicate content. Better to write an original teaser for each article and add a link to the full version on Wizzley. And you will need to set-up Adsense separately for your blog, you can't just transfer the ads.

2. To create a new blogpost, you need to create one in the backend and then decide in your options how things should be displayed.

Sorry! I was at uni in a lecture Frown ... It seems like the problem's solved (maybe) - however I'm not too sure what you initially wanted. I've never used Wordpress before, but I've signed up and poked around a bit and am somewhat familiar.

I've always created any site I've needed by myself, so if it's anything code-wise you need, I can happily help with that Smile.

I'm using Wordpress.com and I can't have AdSense there. Nor can I have Amazon links, the kind Amazon provides, complete with picture. I'm using text-only Amazon links.

Brenda is using a self-hosted Wordpress blog, I looked it up, not wordpress.com ;-) SY

Brenda, don't link out to Wizzley, link from Wizzley to your blog wherever possible.

The sites you own should be the most important as they receive 100% of any ad clicks and 100% of any affiliate sales.

The idea is called a linkwheel where your site is at the centre (the hub of the wheel) and the writing sites etc etc are at the end of each spoke of the wheel (pointing inwards). 

That way you pass some of the kudos from each of your external offerings into your main (eventually) earning site.

With your self hosted WP site you can add widgets that allow you to add adsense, Amazon, Ebay, Clickbank, affiliate networks etc etc. Go to 'widgets' from your wp-admin and search for what you want - when you find something you want to use, download the .zip file to your computer hard drive and then 'upload' it using the saved file in the 'get file' section.

You then have to place it in the position you want by going to 'appearance' and drag-and-drop the widget in the right hand boxes.

"Quickest way to get into the bad books of Google, sorry. SY"

That's assuming that you are interested in Google in the first place. Personally I like to drive traffic from as many places as possible. That way I am not reliant on Google and I am not hit by their ever-changing algorithm.

And please show me the evidence that linking from one site to another is bad from a Google point-of-view - DM me so that this thread is not hijacked.

No need to DM you as this is of interest of many people here. Just look at the Google Webmaster Guidelines regarding link building. If you are after traffic from the search engines, ie long term traffic, not just a short lived fluke of social media traffic that doesn't buy, you will need to adhere to them. SY

If you are referring to this:

Some webmasters engage in link exchange schemes and build partner pages exclusively for the sake of cross-linking, disregarding the quality of the links, the sources, and the long-term impact it will have on their sites. This is in violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines and can negatively impact your site’s ranking in search results.”

Then you have misinterpreted what Google is saying. They are interested in stopping the creation of false and paid linking strategies. If you:

 

Use unique content on every spoke property you build

 

Create your spoke properties over time rather than "all at once"

then there is no way that Google or anyone else could have any objection as you are funnelling traffic from one place to another. That is the way the internet works - interlinking.

In addition, if you avoid the traditional spoke and wheel format and reflect the unstructured internet format there is no way that it could be distinguished from normal linking.

Sorry Brenda for this hijack. I gave you advice on the basis that I know you would never involve yourself with 'link exchange schemes' and 'article spinning' - your writing output is perfect for pointing external sites to your own blog.
