Just go to the left side of their website and scroll down about halfway and you will see the tabs. Just hover over it and click on it.
This feature I don’t use very often. But it can come in handy when you want to see what you were just doing. So I’ll just briefly let you in on what it’s about. I’ll leave a screenshot on the side here so you can see what it will look like when you go to it.

I will go through each Classroom and give you a few examples of types of questions that are asked. As of right now, there are 13 classes.
Getting Started–You can go here if you are having trouble in the getting started training. If you don’t find the answer you can ask your own questions. Here are 3 questions that were asked.
Is there any better place to build your business than WA? Here is the answer I liked. I have been in this profession for more than 20 years. I can tell you there is nothing better online period. The community alone is worth the investment.
Keyword, Niche And Market Research-Having trouble coming up with a Niche or are you having trouble with keywords? This is the classroom you need to be in:
Why can I not find a niche? Here is one of the answers. I did not know that a niche is something you find at Jaaxy. I prefer to find a niche in my head…Then I use jaaxy for keywords related to that niche.
Is the Amazon affiliate program closed? Here is a good answer. Amazon affiliate program is never closed. At the bottom of the Amazon website, you will see an option to become an affiliate. Click on it and then follow the instruction.
Keyword traffic. How much is enough?Here is an answer. You can use anything. But most people will probably cut it off at 50 or 100 monthly searches, especially if you have a lot of keywords.
Everything WordPress-You can learn a lot about WordPress in this wonderful classroom:
Can I create a landing page on my website? Here is a great answer to that question. Yes, you can. There are several plugins available for landing pages. Although, technically any page, including your home page can be a landing page.
Can I host woo commerce theme on WA? Here is a short answer and a great answer. Absolutely, nice theme.
Can you have too many pages? One of the answers. I don’t think you can have too many pages/posts but can have too many on your menu for sure. You want to make your menus as simple and easy to navigate as possible.
Search Engine Optimization -Want to know how search engines work. This is the class for you. Some of the questions asked are:
What to do about duplicate titles? Here is a very good answer. Some audits do this in a very poor way. Some will see your menu navigation that links to a page and then perhaps sees your recent posts that link to the same place and call it a duplicate. I try not to have more than one method of getting to the same page or post.
What is local SEO for? The best answer to this question is this. Local SEO is if you’re targeting the specific area within your own country.
How can I delete posts without Google penalizing me? Here is one of the answers.I have done this. I simply replace the content with fresh updated unique and better content. Then, I change the date.
Social Engagement And Marketing
Do you dig Social Media? This is a great place to learn how it’s done. Some questions that are asked on this subject is as follow:
Does anyone have this problem in plus?This was are a hard question. Something about the settings is google+. The best answer I could find is this. I only add people who are connected with some WA members.
Free ways to get likes on my facebook page? Here is the answer. In all honesty, FB is a dead end. Go G+ communities. (disagree. FB is still a big way to promote from.)
How can I improve my traffic? Here is a very good answer. You should be happy to be getting real visitors after a couple of weeks. Most people won’t have any. So, just keep doing what you are doing. It can take months for many sites to start to get visitors from organic search.
Website Development And Programming-This is the place I need to be. When it comes to development and programming, I have no idea what I’m doing. Check some of the questions asked when this class.
What accounting software do you use and why? The answer. FreeAgent I believe is pretty comprehensive.
How listing for local marketing works? This was one on the answers. Create a site called for example BostonCarpenters.com and then see local carpenters a page on your site. Your site will be more valuable to your advertisers if you can rank on page 1 of Google. This is a tried and tested local marketing strategy.
Video Marketing-If your into video’s then video marketing is the class for you. Here are a few questions you can find in this classroom:
Which tools do you recommend to use to make videos? Here is the answer. Except for the classic windows movie maker which is suggested by many fellow WA members, you can also check this free software. serif.com
Would you embed your video or link to it on Youtube? The answer. I think embed video is better. You can also do both embed and share.
Email Marketing-Yes, email marketing is big and growing every day. Jump into this classroom for these questions.
Email signup widget-what do people use? Here is the answer for this one. I use MailMuch which is an available plugin, it is easily integrated with MailChimp and I have in fact set it up on my own site.
The Wealthy Affiliate Platform-If you have or want to learn more about the platform at Wealthy Affiliate, this is the place to be. Here are a few questions you will find in this class.
What is ranking about here at WA? The answer. Take a breath and ignore your WA ranking. If you have a comment you would like to put out there in response to a question or blog, let it fly. The name of the game is making progress with your own website.
Why should I use rapid writer? The answer. The reason it is suggested is that WordPress has a problem understanding things written with Microsoft software, like Work, or Word Pad. The so rapid writer will overcome that problem.
Pay Per Click-If you have the money and want to try Pay Per Click (PPC), then this classroom might help you along that path. Let’s check out a few questions.
How many posts and pages for PPC?Here is a good answer. Depend on what you’re going to use PPC for. Usually, it’s used to direct visitors to a landing page or squeeze page. To get your ROI, you need to get sales or opt-ins.
When do my AdSense ads show up? The answer. It can take awhile.But it usually takes 24 hrs for the ads to show on my sites.
Facebook ads. One click for 1 cent, possible? The answer to the last question. I was advertising on FB or fan page likes and I really did very well in terms of costs per like. It got suspicious when I found out, that the more likes I got the engagement on my page didn’t’ rise at all.
That’s it for the Classrooms. I hope you get the idea of what they have here at Wealthy Affiliate.
