This section is aimed at new bloggers starting from scratch. You can follow the journey of this real life blogger who has created his new website –theperfectgrind.co.uk. It will feature basic but key information a budding blogger needs. Articles include; technical terms, skills required, how to set up your first blog, hosting platforms, how to use Amazon Associates, creating your first text link, etc.

Part 01: Create a Website – A Beginner’s Guide
June 2, 2016
Almost every business in the UK will have a website, often referred to as their online presence. There is a very simple reason for doing this.

Part 02: What Is A Blog and What Does A Blogger Do?
June 2, 2016
To build a good quality Amazon Affiliate website it is a good idea to understand some of the terminology associated with websites. In particular it is good to know the difference between a “Blog” and a “Website.” The term blog gets its name from the phrase “web logs.” That was an old phrase used when...

Part 03: Why Start Blogging?
June 2, 2016
There really are a whole range of reasons why people start up a website/blog. They do however break down into three general categories which are:

Part 04: How To Earn Money as a Blogger
June 2, 2016
For most people, the purpose of setting up a website/blog is to make money from it. Businesses will typically set up an eCommerce website, and from that they will sell their products and services online.

Part 05: Skills a Blogger Should Have
June 2, 2016
The reality is that there are some great bloggers out there. There are also some who just don’t fully understand what is required to be a great blogger. In fact, many of the website/blogs you will see are built and written in completely the wrong way, or for the wrong reasons.

Part 06: How to Find a Topic for a Website/blog?
June 2, 2016
If you have decided to go ahead and set up a website/blog then this is where the rubber will meet the road. In this case study I will be setting up a website/blog that will generate income as an Amazon Affiliate and also use the Google Adsense advertising programme.

Part 07: How to Find Articles for My Blog Topic
June 3, 2016
So far we have covered what is best termed as a “proof of concept and validation” of the topic that has been picked in our market. In my case study that is making great tasting coffee with a focus on “coffee grinders.”

Part 08: Where Can I Get Pictures & Videos For My Blog?
June 3, 2016
Using images on the Internet is actually a legal minefield. I am not a lawyer so clearly I can not offer any type of legal advice. What you find written below is simply my interpretation of the benefits of using images and videos on your website.

Part 09: Buying Hosting & Setting It Up
June 3, 2016
If you are doing this for the first time this can be the most technically daunting of all the tasks that you have to do. I will never forget doing this for the first time as I had no clue what I was actually doing – but I got there in the end and so

Part 10: How To Choose and Register the Right Domain
June 3, 2016
Please read this section about domain names and the next section on hosting before making any decisions. If you have decided to have your own website rather than build one on the free services, then you will need to buy a domain name. This is easily recognised as something likewww.google.co.ukorwww.amazon.co.uk.

Part 11: What is WordPress & Installation Process
June 3, 2016
A content management system is simply the software that you will use to add content to your website. That content will include written work, images, videos and other elements such as tables or polls.

Part 12: Basic WordPress Set-Up
June 12, 2016
As Wordpess is going to be our content management system (CMS) of choice there are some basic settings that should be done. So although WordPress is actually very good “out of the box,” there are some basic settings that will make it even better, and help you to build a quality Amazon Affiliate website.

Part 13: Installing a Theme & Plug-Ins
June 13, 2016
In this section we are going to install a WordPress theme and some important plugins for our website.

Part 14: Understanding Website Structure
June 14, 2016
When using WordPress you can pick from a whole range of website designs. The main look and feel of your website is achieved by picking a Theme that you like. When you pick and install a theme, you are adding a basic design and also a basic structure to your website.

Part 15: Content Plan Setup & How to Write Quality Articles?
June 15, 2016
If you follow what I am about to show you then your life as a website owner will become a great deal easier. This is referred to as a “Content Plan” or as I prefer to call it “Getting Organised.” When you start to build out a website it is very easy to quickly lose

Part 16: Content Plan – Adding Posts & Pages
June 16, 2016
We now come to the most important part of the entire website building process. This is where you add your content and start to make your website useful for visitors. Everything we have done so far is to set up your website to make everything look professional.

Part 17: Content Plan – Adding Images, Videos, Widgets and Links
June 17, 2016
At this stage you should have published your pages, 10 posts and added your menus to your website. You now want to do a number of other tasks that help improve the quality of your content, and also help with the navigation on your website.

Part 18: SEO Optimisation
June 18, 2016
You should by now have your website at the stage where some unique content has been added to it. As soon as we finish doing some SEO with the website, we will be able to publish it and make it go live.

Part 19: Typical Failures before Starting a Website
June 19, 2016
At this stage of my case study, your website should be very close to launching on to the Internet. However, before doing that I wanted to point out the reasons that many website/blogs fail to make any money. That way you should be able to avoid those pit falls.

Part 20: Checks Before Your Website Goes Live
June 20, 2016
At this stage your website is ready to go online and should be ready for its first visitors. There are a number of checks that I go through to make sure everything is functioning properly before releasing it to the search engines.

Part 21: Setting up Google Analytics & Google Search Console
June 21, 2016
Now that you have launched your website you need to be able to do some analysis on it and also measure its performance as you start to build it out. A great way of doing this is to add some basic code to your website.

Part 22: Applying to become an Amazon Affiliate
June 22, 2016
Never apply to become an Amazon Affiliate until you have published your website and have at least 10-15 unique and good quality articles on it. The Affiliate programme is free to join but they do have an approval process.

Part 23: How to Add Amazon Affiliate Links
June 23, 2016
In this article I will cover how to add an Amazon Affiliate link to your website. These are often referred to as the “money links” simply because if a visitor clicks on one of your “special links” and makes a purchase at Amazon, then you will get paid a commission.

Part 24: Getting Your First Visitors
June 24, 2016
How do you get people to come and visit your website? Without visitors no-one will ever get to read your work and you will not make sales. Understanding traffic is therefore very important to understand.
