4 Wonderful Website Examples

Created by Wealthy Affiliate Members

by Tasos on Jan 06, 2018 – Last Update: Jan 20, 2019

In the previous part, we examined the Wealthy Affiliate websites that are built using SiteRubix, a WordPress platform bundled with marketing and management tools, security, 24/7 support, and an interactive community with a live chat feature and thousands of blogs and trainings.

Now I want to demonstrate websites built with the SiteRubix web builder from people followed the Wealthy Affiliate training, sites that are doing well in their niche, get rankings in the search engines, and earn income mostly in the form of affiliate commissions, selling advertising space, and email marketing.

More importantly, I will show websites outside the ‘Make Money Online’ niche because in the main training modules review I highlighted that the WA training is mostly geared towards that industry. But I also mentioned that these training methods and principles can be applied to any market.

These sites come from Wealthy Affiliate members who completed the main training modules, participated in the training classrooms, and followed the live video classes archive (which is the most valuable and comprehensive part of the WA training that provides information outside the saturated ‘Make Money Online’ industry, information that can be used to build websites in any niche of the market).

You can use these websites as inspiration, to get ideas for your site, and to get to know that anything’s possible if you work consistently.

Of course, you can always take as an example this website!

Additionally, there are list-pages which people find very convenient for checking multiple similar items in one place.

The design is clean and simple, without fancy pages and the atmosphere is friendly.

I checked some of the ‘Keywords’ and here are my findings:

  • Keyword ‘Best double cot tents’ – Rankings: Google #1, #2, #3 (3 spots together), Bing #1, Yahoo #1 just after the paid ads section

Final Review:

The site gets Top Rankings in the most popular search engines. In some cases, it dominates the SERPs with multiple spots. A perfect example of a hard-working owner dedicated to helping visitors decide on certain products with great content.

The owner has a huge experience of 30 years climbing mountains and sleeping outdoors in all possible ways, as he describes on the ‘About’ page.

Now he takes advantage of that knowledge to build an online business using his computer to operate his WordPress site and writes reviews.

Jovo has built other sites as well since October 2014. A very productive individual that participates almost daily in the WA community with his blogs, comments, and trainings to help new members find their way online.

I could not find external ads from networks like Google Adsense but maybe there are ads on certain pages.

 

Final Review:

The site gets great rankings in the most popular search engines. Have in mind that this niche is very competitive and this site created in July 2016. The site’s competitors are huge magazines, groups of people, journalists, and independent bloggers as well.

    I found this article very interesting! Thanks. Question, where you wrote “…very active You-Tube channel which may bring additional income from advertising…” how does the person make money if the YouTube channel is not theirs? Or am I not seeing it correctly? I was looking at the Mac n Cheese video.

    Also I have seen many online advice that video is better than written content, primarily from an engagement point of view. Would you agree with this? And if so how would it help to have a Wealthy Affiliate website. Would a person just stick in videos instead of content, or content in addition to video?

    I know I ask a lot and I hope it’s ok. Thank you!!!

      Hi Eva, thanks for these questions, no problem at all!

      I’m not sure which video exactly is this “Mac n Cheese” but maybe it’s a video embedded on the website. Anyone can embed other people’s videos on their websites. In this case, you can’t make money from other people’s videos. This is the associated You-Tube channel with the “Kaboutjie” website. This channel may bring income.

      Now as concerns the content format, both video and written content would do just fine. It depends on your preferences and the target audience. I suggest you start experimenting with both formats. But it’s OK if you want to use only videos. With videos, you can create more personalized messages but text is also important for people that prefer to read.

      I hope this can help you a little bit, and if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact me again. All the best.

    It’s interesting because half of the sites you mention have pretty bad rankings and most are not on page one. Also over half are not hosted by wealthy affiliate (who host from Virginia) maybe built by wealthy affiliate. The sites look ok though apart from the first one that spans you with link s to bit coin.

      Hi Jay

      I checked all the keywords mentioned in the article manually using the search engines one by one. Did you do the same and find different results? All these sites created using the SiteRubix builder, at Wealthy Affiliate. Their owners may choose to change hosting provider if they want to in the future. I don’t see any ad for bitcoins on the 1st site, the site uses Google Adsense, the owner does not have any control over these external ads. But has that anything to do with the article?

    You display many good website designs and examples of finding a niche in the market for those looking to build up a good online business with low cost investment. Though this takes time and patience with the right training and support it is very achievable. Wealthy Affiliate offers the blue prints and resources to be able to learn all the skills to do this. Affiliate marketing is a good way to start a business. Would you say having a siterubix site can be as successful as having your own domain site ?

      Hi Katie, I’m happy you liked the content. Of course, any online business and business, in general, takes time before we see any good results.

      Free Siterubix sites do very well and get rankings in the search engines and I know many partners who are making good money on those sites. And I created a Siterubix site just a month or so ago, for some experiments. So far, so good.

      But sites on owed domains might have a slight competitive advantage at the end of the day. All in all, if a free domain site offers value, relevant answers and people visit it, I can’t see any reason for not being a success.

      Thanks for the visit and for your nice words. Have a nice weekend!
