This website is ready for a change! Yes I am taking a different plunge, moving to another domain name and setting this business in concrete.
I realized that all the sales from this website are coming from the same path. From people who want to build a website and make money online. These people do not know WordPress exists at this point, they just want to build a website.
WordPress Foundation Trademark Breach
Yes I have the word WordPress in my domain name and to tell you the truth, I did not plan this website at all.
Not that WordPress has bothered me, but I do not feel like I own this name. Unfortunately this website was setup as an experiment that took off, totally by accident. I had no idea that I would enjoy showing people how to build websites and make money. In fact I had no idea that people were even interested in what I do as I was always too busy doing what I do.
Therefore I would like a domain name that says something about building websites to make money… or even just building websites. Most think that blatantly trying to make money is not the right thing to do, whereas I believe that anyone who says they do not want money is lying. We need it to survive. It’s like saying “Shhhh..Don’t tell anyone we eat food, we will just eat it secretly.” It is just something we need in life.
Which by the way is totally against the WordPress Foundations policy.
People Get The Wrong Idea
As my website is really about building websites to make money money online, when people arrive here they presume it is only for WordPress users. Even though I use WordPress and love it, you can make money building websites using other content management systems.
Many people showed this in their comments when they stated “hey this article can apply to any website, not just WordPress.” Yes that is the case and I have felt a bit boxed in. I thought a small niche would suit me but it does not. I want to go big and broad. (This is a long term plan)
Things like SEO, website traffic, building a community, making money on-line, and more, all apply to any website you like. I can use most of my own tips on a handmade html website or a WordPress website. Either way, the intention is the same, to make money from my website.
Money is The Root
I want this website to be a success by bringing in huge amounts of money and by becoming a go to place for building websites or blogs to make money. I have decided that honesty is the best policy and making money is a big part of the success for me. I am not a pushy affiliate marketer but I do make great money from this website and others.
What About My Rankings
Not to worry too much. I have overhauled a website before, and it turned out for the better. I know people think I will never get the great Page Rank and Alexa ranking back, but I will. No problem. I just have to be patient.
Some links I have built can be changed, others will be redirected to an ebook giveaway page.
My Categories Are Wrong
As I have stated before, this website used to be an auto blog. The categories were pretty much setup to accommodate the articles and that’s it. Next time around I will make categories the right way, according to my SEO strategies.
What Will The Future Hold
Well when I am finished with the idea and then the move, this website will be exactly what I want it. I will not be half happy with it any longer. I am very confident that this is the right thing to do!
I will still have this domain name and redirect it to my new one. I will also redirect the Rss fo
I am still working on ideas for a domain name that says something about building websites and making money.
The website will look the same initially but the categories and resources will be different. There will be more focused information about building websites, getting traffic, SEO, and so on.. I don’t really do many actual WordPress tutorials as this is too boring for me.
I guess you all think I am crazy but this is not a risk for me, it is just the next step in my business.
