Wealthy Affiliate – Websites
by Tasos on Jan 05, 2018 – Last Update: Jan 06, 2018
In the previous parts, we examined the Wealthy Affiliate Education modules, and I analyzed why I recommend this platform as one of the best places to build an online business.
Now it’s time to examine what kind of websites you can build and how that can affect your online success.
WordPress is a content management system, which is a computer application that supports the creation and modification of digital content. It typically supports multiple users in a collaborative environment.
CMS features vary widely. Most CMSs include Web-based publishing, format management, history editing and version control, indexing, search, and retrieval. By their nature, content management systems support the separation of content and presentation.
A web content management system (WCM or WCMS) is a CMS designed to support the management of the content of Web pages. Most popular CMSs are also WCMSs. Web content includes text and embedded graphics, photos, video, audio, maps, and program code (e.g., for applications) that displays content or interacts with the user.
Based on market share statistics, the most popular content management system is WordPress, used by over 28% of all websites on the internet, and by 59% of all websites using a known content management system. Other popular content management systems include Joomla and Drupal.
Whatever CMS system you decide to use it can be monetized and every one has its pros and cons. But WordPress is the most powerful tool, the most popular and it can be extended by using free plugins.
I recommend WordPress, it’s a system I know it’s working, it’s the system I use daily, I had no problems so far, and you have the support of a multi-million community of other users (me included), experts, and developers.
It’s the most popular, complete, and flexible CMS on the market, with no restrictions, with an enormous gallery of design themes and templates, fully expandable using Free plugins, and there are Free tutorials for anything you might need. Literally, there’s no service that can’t be integrated into WordPress, and you own the files and content of the site, and you can transfer the content to new domains, or other hosting providers at will.
Wealthy Affiliate Web Builder – SiteRubix
SiteRubix is a web building & hosting platform that allows you to build WordPress websites at the push of a button.
Standard members can build up to 2 Free websites using a sub-domain on the root domain siterubix.com, ie…MyNewSite.siterubix.com. and host them for free.
Premium WA members can build up to 25 WordPress websites on a domain they own plus 25 Free SiteRubix websites.
SiteRubix is bundled with marketing training and tools to operate and scale online businesses and a very interactive live chat where thousands of people every day discuss and publish content and trainings with everything that has to do with online businesses (included me).
Additionally, they offer web hosting services and 24/7 technical support including daily backups on all websites hosted at WA.
That means, everything you need to start, maintain, and develop an online business is offered here, all under one roof.
To mention here, that SiteRubix throughout the years has been consistently updated to reflect the latest technologies and innovations. This platform is very powerful so let’s discover why this is true…
How it Works
The website you build using SiteRubix comes with 2 plugins pre-installed, the All-in-One SEO (SEO settings/optimization) and it’s a plugin I use as well, and the other plugin is the EWWW Image Optimizer.
Along with the plugins, the installation offers the SiteProtect feature which is a spam blocker. The problem with common plugin spam blockers is that the spam still hits your site, clutters your database, slows your site down, and wastes your time recovering real comments. WA SiteProtect happens at the server level and blocks all automated comment spam before it even hits your site. It’s just better!
That means you won’t need extra plugins to protect your site from spam. And if we consider that every plugin slows a website down a little bit, this pre-installed feature frees up speed, which is a very important ranking factor. Faster websites rank higher in the search engines.
And it doesn’t stop there. Lately, they introduced a new feature that comes pre-installed at the server level, the SiteSpeed, a proprietary WA technology that speeds up WordPress sites without plugins or clunky software. That means better rankings and a better experience for your website visitors, even when they are on mobile.
Another innovative integration is the Page Speed Insights, which connects your site with Google Search Console to check the speed of your site at the push of a button.
The 24/7 support is absolutely one of the best in the marketplace. They respond within minutes and they’re always very friendly.
Furthermore, you can build websites using domains that you own and host them there but that is included in the premium package.
And you can even buy domain names and host your sites on another hosting provider, and you can transfer any site you want (both free sub-domains and own domains) to other hosting providers any time you want.
And you can transfer the content of your Free SiteRubix site to a domain that you own in the future, and the Support team will help you do that in minutes.
