How to make an AMAZON AFFILIATE WEBSITE 2018 with WordPress Woocommerce and Woozone (Wzone)

– In this video, I'm going to show you how to create an Amazon Affiliate website with WordPress, WooZone, and WooCommerce The site we're gonna be creating looks just like this

I've created a site all around dog technology, but you can create a site around any niche, or niche, if you're American, that you like The site looks really good and it includes a number of great features including the ability to import products straight from Amazon, add them to your site, and basically create a little shop that your visitors can then browse and they can add the product to a shopping cart When they then check out, they're redirected over to Amazon, and then when they make that purchase, you'll earn affiliate commission It's also got a blog section, so you can easily add articles The blog is a great place to attract visitors from a search engine

And it's also a way of adding value and helping people make a purchase The site works really well on mobile phones and tablets, as you'd expect because it's 2018 And I'm gonna take you through everything you need to know step by step Don't worry if you've never made a website before, or you're totally new to websites and affiliate marketing and all that kind of stuff I'm here to help you, I'm going to hold your hand, I'm gonna guide you, and you're gonna be able to look over my shoulder and watch as I create the website

So if you're ready, let's get started (tones and soft piano music) Hello, it's Alex here from WPEagle Hope you're all well, thank you for watching If you're new to my channel, why not subscribe? You can do it right now Click on the red button below, click on the bell and you'll be notified when I upload new videos, which tends to be every single week and going forward, I'm going to be adding loads more videos around the site that we're creating today, with lots more tips and tricks and how to add features and how to get traffic and all that kind of stuff

So you're not gonna wanna miss out on those, so I suggest you subscribe right now But anyway, in this video I'm gonna show you how to make an Amazon Affiliate website with WordPress Now this video is quite long because there's quite a lot of things that we need to cover and I wanted to show absolutely everything and do everything step by step so you know exactly what you're doing To make it easier to navigate, I've added some timings to the description of this video If you scroll down, you'll be able to see those

So those timings enable you to jump to various parts of the video quickly and easily Now before we jump on the computer and start creating our website, there's a couple of things that I just need to tell you about First is how much can you expect to earn from an Amazon Affiliate website? Well it depends The earnings are pretty limitless, you can really earn as much as you like and it all depends on how much work you wanna put into the website So for example, if you just create the website, and you add a few products and you add a few articles

I recommend that you launch a site with at least 10 articles if you do that, then you should expect minimal sort of earnings, maybe $10, $20, $30 possibly even $40 a month However, if you want to put more work in, and add more content, keep your products updated, do all the kind of SEO optimization stuff that I recommend, then your earnings could be considerably more Now, I'm not promising that you're going to earn millions, however, I've heard from other viewers that have watched my previous videos on creating affiliate websites, and some of those have been able to get their earnings up to four figures a month So it's really down to you and I'm here to offer all the support and knowledge that you need, not only in this video but on the other videos on my channel

So if you can learn the stuff and you can do it, then you can earn some really good money off an Amazon Affiliate website So while we're on the subject of money, let me just go through the investment you're gonna need to make today in order to get your website up and running Now I'd love to be able to say that you can create a website like this free, however that's simply not possible There is a small cost involved I've done my best to keep it as low as possible, and in fact, I've secured a special voucher that you can use when you purchase your hosting today to get the best price possible

Let me just take you through exactly what you're gonna need and how much it all costs The first thing is your website hosting So this is basically what you'd pay a company to keep your website online They put it on their server and make it available and do all that kind of technical stuff for you I recommend HostGator, because they are great value for money and offer a really good service

Now the cost of your hosting is gonna depend on the length of the term that you commit to when you order your hosting Generally the longer that you buy, the better price you're gonna get and you know, keep in mind that setting up a website like this and getting some traffic and getting some earnings is gonna take a little bit of time But just say for example, that you go for a years hosting, which is what I'd recommend as kind of a minimum level of hosting, that's gonna come in at $65 for the year And the next thing you're gonna need is the WooZone premium plugin And this is the bit of software that connects into our WordPress website and allows us to download products from Amazon and kind of takes care of all the Amazon Affiliate stuff

It's a premium plugin, so that means that you do have to pay for it, but for your money you get access to the software, you get free updates, and you also get support from the plugin developers And the cost of the plugin is just $43 and then finally, we need the premium theme, which is called Kingdom That's been designed and written to specifically work well with the WooZone plugin And again, because it's premium, you get access to updates and you get access to support from the developers And the cost for the theme is $39

For those of you that don't know what a theme is, basically that's what gives the WordPress website it's look and feel, allows you to change the colours, the fonts, and do all the layout kind of stuff So that's what you're gonna need to invest today in order to get your Amazon Affiliate website up and running Total comes in at $147 Which is actually a small investment, because that gives you the site for the entire year, you know, if you break that down to a monthly figure, it's, top of my head, just over $10 a month So not a huge investment, and as I said, if you follow this tutorial and my other videos around promotion and getting traffic, you should be earning more than that in commissions in no time at all

So I think we're about ready to get started Now I'm here to help you set this website up If you get stuck at any point, just leave a question below, in the comments, and I'll do my best to reply to as many as I possibly can I also do a Livestream every single week So if you like, you can bring your questions on that stream and I'll try and answer as many as I possibly can, in real time, while I'm live

I think that's enough lookin' at my face Let's get on the computer and let's get this website set up I wish you the best of luck (Jazzy music) So the first thing we're gonna need is a domain name, a domain name is basically a com, or your

coUK, your org, your net Whatever dot you like, really, there's a lot of extensions available nowadays to purchase

You can have more than one domain name as well and just point them all at your website That's fine, so you might wanna register both the coUK and the com, it's entirely up to you

Now if you've already got a domain name registered, either with GoDaddy or another domain registerer That's fine, I'm gonna be showing you how you can use that domain name for your website You can skip forward to step two Remember you'll find all the timings for the different sections of this video in the video description I'll also put the time you need to skip to on the screen right now, so yeah

For those of you that have already got a domain name registered, skip forward to that point and get started setting up your hosting For those of you that don't have a domain name, let's get one registered right now Now I recommend GoDaddy for domain names I use them for all my domain names, I like to keep them all in one place, so I know exactly which ones I've got because I do have a tendency to register lots of domain names I use GoDaddy only for my domain names, I don't use their hosting or anything like that

Because it's not very good But they are great for managing domains So head over to GoDaddycom I'll put a link in the description in this video

Which will be an affiliate link, so thank you very much if you use it When you get to GoDaddy you'll find a box like this and all you need to do is type in the domain name that you'd like So the domain name I'm going for today is called BowWowTech I have already registered it, but just for this video let's do a search anyway It says that it's taken, that's because I've taken it

And then it's also offering me some alternatives So if your domain name you're looking to buy is already taken, you're gonna have to find some variations, maybe change the extension or add a few other words or try some other ideas until you get more that's available For example, if I was gonna try something else, I might go for greatstufffordogs, search And that one's gone as well And cats, there we go, that's quite a long domain name, isn't it, but it is available to buy

So once you've found something that is available, you can add it to your cart and checkout, put your payment details in and all that kind of stuff And it only takes a few moments for GoDaddy to register it and then it'll be ready to use So I'm not in my GoDaddy domain manager and here are the two domains that I'm gonna be using today I've registered the com and the

couk The site that I'm gonna be making is gonna be UK focused but I wanted to secure the com as well so that maybe if I want to do a US targeted site in the future, I've got it or just basically to protect my brands So I've registered both, and I'll be pointing both of them at the new website

There's our domain done for now, then the next thing we need to do is set up our hosting We will be coming back to GoDaddy to adjust the settings on our domains once we've got the hosting set up So let's do that right now (jazzy music) So now we're gonna be setting up our web hosting web hosting is basically where your website lives on the internet

You hire a little bit of a server from a paid hosting company And they make sure that your website's online and available to your visitors I recommend HostGator, I use them for pretty much all of my affiliate sites The reason I like HostGator is that they're really good value for money, so if you're just starting out in affiliate marketing, and you haven't got a lot of spare cash, HostGator are a great choice because they're prices are really low But just because their prices are low doesn't mean that they compromise on service

They offer a really good service for the money Let's just scroll down and take a look at what you get You get some great support from HostGator, so if there's ever a problem, which there very rarely is But if you do need to ask a question about your hosting, you can get in touch with them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year They offer a great online chat service so it's really easy to get ahold of someone

You just log into your account, fire up the chatbox, and ask your question It's really easy to get started, I'm gonna be showing you how to do that in just a few moments, but we've got a number of features built in so for example, setting up WordPress, which is what we're gonna be doing, is really easy with HostGator Other things that are guaranteed, as I've already mentioned, support, there's a 45 day money back guarantee, so if for whatever reason, you're not completely satisfied with the service you're getting from HostGator, you can cancel your account and get a complete refund And they offer a 999% uptime

That basically means your site is gonna be there online, all the time, you know, you don't want your website going down That's not a good thing, because a website that's down means that you're not gonna get any traffic and you're not gonna be making any sales And they've also won a few awards from different websites and blogs But anyway Let's get started

I am gonna be sharing with you a coupon today, as well, so you're gonna get an even better price than the ones you see advertised on here So let's go for web hosting, you'll notice there is Cloud hosting and WordPress hosting But the standard web hosting is just fine for what we need to do You can, of course, change your package and plan whenever you want You might be thinking, but we're installing WordPress, surely we need WordPress hosting

It's a little bit misleading, but you can actually instal WordPress just fine on the standard web hosting So let's go for that I'm gonna give it a click And now we get to choose our plan So the starter plan is this one here, which is the Hatchling, starts at just $2

75 a month although that cost does depend on the term that you take, I'll get into that in a few moments Generally the Hatchling plan is just fine for those of you just starting out And you've just got the single domain If you wanna add more domains, maybe have more sites, then the Baby business plan might be a better fit for you But for now, I'm gonna choose the hatchling plan

I'm gonna click sign up now And we're now ready to sign up Here's the HostGator order form So if you follow step one and you didn't already have a domain name, hopefully, you've now got one registered over at GoDaddy If you already had a domain name registered with a different provider, that's fine as well

I'm gonna be showing you how you can use that domain for your new website But either way, we already own a domain name so let's click I already own this domain Now I'm gonna type in my domain name, which is BowWowTechcouk

Now I did mention I've got a com as well and I'll show you how to re point that in a second but my primary domain name, the main one, the one that's gonna come up when people visit the site, is gonna be wwwBowWowTechcouk

Because as I said, it's gonna be a UK targeted site So once you've entered that, let's just press tab so we get to the next section And it's just gonna check that that's okay It says it's unavailable because I've obviously already registered it And it's offering me a few other domain names if I want them, but I don't

Because I get all my domain names from GoDaddy The next section is to choose our hosting plan Now we've already chosen the package type, we just did that on the previous step But if, for whatever reason you wanna change that now, you can The next section is the billing cycle

So this is how long you basically wanna commit for Now as you can see, you get a much better price if you can commit for a longer period of time Now setting up a website does take a little bit of time and adding content and getting traffic can take a few months So I, personally, always go for at least a 12 month billing cycle, sometimes 24, sometimes 36, it really depends on how much money I've got to spare right now and how long I think I'm gonna keep the site for Generally I have sites for many, many years so if you can afford it right now, I would go for the 24 or the 36

Or at least a 12 month If you are very short of cash, then maybe the one month might work for you, but as I said, it's much, much better value if you can go for the 12 month, 24 months, or 36 month I have got a voucher code that I'm gonna share with you in just a moment that will get these prices even lower, so I'm gonna select 12 months The next box is your username, so this is what you're gonna be using to log into HostGator and kind of set up all your stuff, so It's best just to use something that you can remember, so BowWowTech is probably fine for me

Here's a security pin, you're gonna need this if you contact support, so enter a pin number that you'll remember I'm not gonna fill in all this form right now, 'cause that's a bit boring (chuckling) I'll do it in a second The next section is your billing info So it's a pretty straightforward form, you're gonna just enter your email, your name, company, if you've got one

Address, all that kind of stuff Over here we've got our payment information So you can pay either with a credit card or with PayPal So enter all that information in this box Section four is additional services

Now we don't actually need any of these additional services so untick these to turn them off and get your price down even lower I do have some videos on my channel around protecting your site from hackers and how to back up your site You can do all that stuff without having to pay HostGator, so make sure that you untick all these boxes Section five is very important It's the coupon code

So there may already be a coupon in the box, I've got this one, SHARED3660 to give me a discount of $36 However if I use my coupon code, which is EAGLE30, and click validate You'll get an even better discount of $4296 So if you go ahead and use my coupon code too, it's EAGLE30

You will get a great discount It is an affiliate coupon, so I will earn some commission if you use it So I'll say thank you very much now, in advance, and yeah, please use it and get a great discount If you have decided to go for a one month billing cycle, this coupon code will give you that first month for just a penny So once you enter the coupon code, EAGLE30, and click Validate, there's only one more step

That is to tick this box to say that you've read and agree to the terms of service, the cancellation policy, and the privacy policy And then we just click checkout now and we're all done So all I'm gonna do is I'm gonna quickly complete this form, get my hosting all set up, and we can move onto the next step which is repointing our domain name so that it's working with our new HostGator hosting (jazzy music) So I've completed the order form, I'm all signed up now for HostGator I just received this email from HostGator, it contains all the important information that I need in order to access my new hosting account

You should receive one as well once you've signed up It'll be very similar to this, look out for an email with the subject line HostGatorcom, your account info so we're gonna need this information right now to get our WordPress set up and to repoint our domain name And that's what I'm actually gonna do right now I'm gonna repoint my domain name

So if you've just purchased a domain name from GoDaddy, that's where we're gonna be heading to make the change and get the domain name working on our new hosting But if you've already got the domain name, maybe with another registrar, the process is pretty much the same, so you should be able to follow me with what I'm doing on GoDaddy and apply it to whoever your domain name is with So let's do that right now Just gonna pop up a new tab and then head over to GoDaddy (clicking) And sign in and go to manage domains

Going to enter my login details So if you're with say Namester or Namecheap, you need to go over to them and login as well Basically go on and login to whoever's got your domain name And find the relevant domain name It's the

couk, that's the primary domain that I'm gonna be using Basically what you're looking for are you DNS settings So if we click on these three little dots, we've got our manage DNS It'll be called something very similar with pretty much any domain registrar that you happen to be using

So just look for those DNS settings or domain name servers, or domain name settings, that kind of thing It's all around the DNS basically So here are our name servers We just had to scroll down to find them And this is what we're gonna be changing right now so I'm gonna click change, I'm gonna select custom, then if we go back to the email from HostGator, we'll find our nameserver, so I'm just gonna copy that into my clipboard

I'm on a Mac, so I'm pressing Cmd+C, on a PC, I think you press Ctrl+C Or of course you can right click and click copy And I'm just gonna paste that and that's Cmd+V on a Mac, Ctrl+V on a PC I think Let's go back and get the second nameserver Copy to clipboard and paste

(clicking) That's it, that's all done Now that's gonna take a few moments just to update all the settings it needs to, you know, propagate around the world, update all the domain nameservers all around the world So it can take a few moments We'll know it's all working when we visit our domain name So if I go over to BowWowTech, you can, I'm just gonna open another tab

Put that in, browse over So at the moment I've got the GoDaddy page coming up and you'll probably get your domain registrar's namepage coming up We'll know the DNS change has taken effect when everything is working and we're now pointing at HostGator When this GoDaddy page changes to a website coming soon page

So I'm gonna wait a few moments for that to happen, but in the meantime, I'm gonna repoint my other domain, my com I'm gonna set that so that it's redirecting over to the couk

This is obviously an optional step, only applies if you've got multiple domain names that you wanna use on the site So I'm just gonna go back to domain manager, gonna go to my domains And I'm just gonna search for domains, BowWowTech, let's see, com this time And again, we're gonna go back into manage DNS

Then I'm gonna scroll down and I've got this forwarding here, I'm gonna click add And then in here, I'm gonna type in BowWowTechcouk And I want the 301 permanent redirect, forward only and I can click that update my nameservers and DNS settings to support this change

(clicks) that's all done So let's go back to BowWowTechcouk, let's close these tabs we don't need to have any more Let's refresh and see if we're pointing at HostGator yet

There we go So now we've got the website coming soon page, that means we are now pointing at HostGator, that's all working Now for me, it didn't take very long for those settings to update It can take a lot longer, so if you're refreshing and you're still seeing your domain registrar page, don't panic, you might have to give it 24 hours possibly, that's like a maximum, before it actually works But generally an hour or so is enough

Let me just check the com, see if that redirect is working And it is, you see we got redirected back to the couk

So our hosting is all set up, we're all ready to go, the next step is to instal WordPress (jazzy music) The next step is to instal WordPress onto our brand new hosting Well done, you're doing great so far We're making some really good progress So I'm back in my email, I've pulled up my account info email, the one that you received earlier

Do you remember it? And what I need to do is login to my control panel We can see there's a link right here Let's give that a click, then the username is the username you entered when you set up your hosting, you'll find it in your email if you've forgotten it Just gonna copy and paste that in like that Let's go back to the email again, copy and paste

And log in So we're now into our HostGator control panel, my browser's asking me if I wanna save the password, might as well Don't need any of these banners or anything that are popping up, so let's close them I also don't need my email anymore, so I'll close that tab, keep it nice and tidy So in here we can do pretty much anything we need to with regards to our hosting

There's loads of stuff in here, it might look a bit overwhelming, but don't worry We don't actually need half of it, we only need a few little bits So to instal WordPress, if you scroll down to the software section, you're looking for the QuickInstall link, give that a click And we can see that we've got WordPress right here, let's give that a click And now we're ready to instal WordPress

First thing we need to do is select the domain, I've only got the one, it's BowWowTechcouk, of course We'll leave this directory box blank I'm gonna click next

We now need to give the site a name It says blog title, but WordPress is way more than a blog nowadays, so it's actually the website title So I'm just gonna type in the name, BowWowTech Then need to enter an admin username, so this is the username you're gonna be using to log into WordPress, which is different to logging in to your HostGator control panel So I'll just do wpeagle, 'cause I can remember that

And the first and the last name And then need to enter my email address (typing) and that's it The final thing is I need to tick the terms of service agreement You wanna keep that one ticked, the automatically create a new database for this installation

And then we're all done, let's click instal It's gonna take a few moments So we've got a big green tick, that means the installation is complete Got our installation details here, this password you're gonna need to make a note of Just gonna copy that to my clipboard

You should get an email as well with all this information, so don't worry too much But I'm gonna copy that to my clipboard because I need it right now just to double check that the WordPress login is working So let's click login So here's our WordPress login, if for whatever reason, you don't see this screen, maybe you're still getting the coming soon page, just wait a little longer, you might need to clear your browser cache, you might need to flush your DNS Which is all stuff you can look up on Google if you need to learn how to do that

Or it might just need a little bit of time But I'm getting the screen up so I can now log in The username was wpeagle, if you remember, the password I've got in my clipboard If you've forgotten your WordPress login details you'll find that email in your inbox That will have come from HostGator

It's sent to you after you run the WordPress instal But let's click login So we're now logged into our WordPress website This is the dashboard, this is where you can do everything that you need to do, with regards to WordPress websites So you can navigate down the left hand side here

I'll also be taking you through everything you need to know as we work through our website in this video The first thing I wanna do is just clean up the WordPress instal When you run one of those automated instal things that comes with your hosting, it tends to instal a few extra plugins and things that we don't need A plugin is an extra bit of software that plugs in (chuckles) As the name suggests, and it instals into WordPress and gives you extra functionality and I prefer just to instal the plugins that I want, rather than have plugins automatically installed, so very quickly, we'll just remove the plugins that we don't need and get our instal nice and clean

First thing to do is close a few of these banner ads, we don't need them, so you can close that one You may have slightly different things coming up HostGator do kind of change it over time, but they'll be very similar and the process is exactly the same So let's go into plugins, which is down here So plugins and then installed plugins

I'm just gonna scroll down and then we've got this list of plugins that we've got installed on our website, so we'll leave Akismet Akismet is very useful, because it allows you to get rid of comment spam, which is a bit of a problem with WordPress, so I'm gonna leave that as it is I'm gonna leave the Google Analytics one, 'cause that's quite handy and I'll be adding Google Analytics to the site later I don't need Hello Dolly, so let's get rid of that Just gonna click delete

That's just a bit of fun, it doesn't do anything I don't want Jetpack right now, so I'm gonna deactivate that And once it's deactivated, we can scroll down and we can delete that one, too MOJO Marketplace, again don't need that so we deactivate and then delete (click) OptinMonster, gonna deactivate that

Although I am working on an OptinMonster video, so keep an eye on the channel for that, be coming soon But right now we don't need it And WPForms Lite, I'm gonna deactivate that as well (hums) I don't need the plugin, whatever (laughs) Just asking me why

So I'm gonna deactivate and then delete (clicks) So there we go, we've only got two plugins installed now A nice clean instal, we can go back to the dashboard and it should look a little bit tidier There we go So we come up here, we go we can get to visit site now

It takes us to the front of the website and we can see what we've got, so Just the basic WordPress theme right now But it's all up and running perfectly and we're now ready to build on this instal and create our Amazon Affiliate website So the next step is to instal our premium theme, a theme is what gives our site its look and feel We're gonna be using Kingdom, which is a theme specifically written to work with the WooZone plugin which is what we're gonna be using to do all our Amazon Affiliate stuff

So on to the next step (jazzy music) So in this step, we're going to be installing our WordPress theme A WordPress theme is basically what gives our website its look and feel At the moment, we've just got the default one installed this one that makes it look just like a blog We obviously want to turn it into an Amazon Affiliate site with the e-commerce functionality and all that stuff

And this theme is gonna help us do that It's called Kingdom and it's been specifically made to work with WooZone, which is the plugin we're going to be using to connect to Amazon and import all our products and do all the affiliate stuff Now the theme is a premium theme, which means there is a small cost to it And that cost is $39 per licence For that, you get the theme, which is of high quality, you get future updates and you get 6 months support from the developer

The developer's called AA-Team So I'll put a link up now, and you'll also find all the links that you need in the description to this video It is an affiliate link, so if you use it, thank you very much Once you follow the link, you'll come over to ThemeForest, which is what we're looking at right now and you're gonna need to sign up and deposit some funds into your account and then buy this theme and download it When you're depositing your funds, it might be worth depositing at least $88 because after we've installed this theme, we're also gonna be purchasing the WooZone plugin from Envato, from CodeCanyon, which is basically a sister site to ThemeForest

So you might as well, yeah, put the funds in now As I said, you're gonna need at least $88 because this one is $39, and WooZone is gonna be $43 so yeah, come over here, sign up, deposit your funds Purchase Kingdom and download it I have already purchased it, so I can just download it straightaway, I'm gonna just click download that should start the download

Let's find a folder, there we go, DogTech That'll do (clicking) And then save, so it's downloading that to my computer Let's take a look at the file that we've got, there it is So we've downloaded a zip file, then we need to extract it

So I'm just gonna double click on that And there we go, we've got a folder there It's got the version number on it, which is currently 351

You may have a different version, that's fine So within that folder, we've got three more folders And the one we want is the one that says theme and then there's two folders within there and we want the one that says Theme Zipped Within there, there's two other zip files and we don't need to extract them, we can just leave them as they are So let's go back to our website

And here we are I'm still logged in, so we can just go straight back into the dashboard and we can instal our theme To do that we're going to go to appearance and themes Then up here, we've got this add new button, I'm gonna give that a click And then up here again, we've got this upload theme button

Gonna give that a click and now I'm gonna click choose file And I need to navigate to the correct photo which i'm actually already in, but if you remember, I have the folder 351, this one Which was inside the ThemeForest zip, I extracted that, so then into the version number, which is in my case, 3

51 Don't worry if yours is different Then into the theme folder and then we want Themes Zipped And first I'm gonna upload this one, Kingdom

zip And click open, and then instal now Okay, that's done Let's click activate And the theme is now active

There's a message that's appeared telling us that we need to instal some plugins in order for the theme to work As I mentioned earlier, a plugin gives WordPress some extra functionality So we'd better do what it's asking, let's click begin installing plugins And here's a list of the plugins it's gonna instal Now I want all of them, apart from this SEO Pack, 'cause it's not very good

(chuckles) And it's only a lite version anyway, so I'm just gonna take all of them, apart from the Premium SEO Pack When it comes to SEO, I do have lots of videos on it on the channel, so do check them out I recommend a plugin called Yoast SEO But yeah, there's videos on this channel around that, so check them out Select instal after I've ticked all of the plugins apart from that one, so instal in this dropdown and then apply

That's gonna instal these plugins for us That's all done, don't worry about this warning It's not important So they're all green, that's all good So if we go back to the required plugins installer, here they all are, we just need to basically switch them on, activate them

We're gonna tick the box at the top, which will select all of them for me You can see they're all ticked Then in the bulk actions, I'm gonna select activate then apply So they've all been activated Perfect, let's go back to the dashboard

And we're now presented with the WooCommerce setup wizard So let's just quickly go through this So just to be clear, WooCommerce is an e-commerce plugin and we're gonna be using WooZone, which is our affiliate plugin on top of this So this kind of gives us our checkout functionality and the ability to add products and that kind of thing So keep in mind that this is designed for a traditional e-commerce site, so a lot of the features we're not gonna need

So let's go through the wizard The first thing it's asking is for an address This is not that important, because you're an affiliate site you're not gonna be, you know, sending out parcels or invoices or anything like that Amazon's gonna do all of that for you So you can put your real address in if you'd like, but you don't need to

I've put this one in You can set your currency though, that does need to be correct I've gone for pound sterling, because my site is UK targeted And the rest is all fine, let's click let's go So the next step is the payment

Now, again, you're not gonna be taking any payment because you're gonna be sending people off to Amazon to complete their order, so if these are ticked, then make sure they're unticked, they should be grey like mine If yours are purple, just click them to make them grey You don't need any payment 'Kay, anyways, so let's click continue Again, we don't need shipping, because Amazon's gonna be doing all the shipping, so let's just untick those and click continue

Here's some recommended stuff, don't need that, don't need that, just untick it all and click continue Next it's saying we need to instal Jetpack, which we don't Let's skip this step, there's a link at the bottom And now we're ready, that's all done We can visit our dashboard

And we're all good So we can get rid of some of these messages at the top, let's just click the little crosses, don't need those messages This message says, your store does not appear to be using a secure connection Don't worry too much about that right now, if you wanna instal SSL, I've got some videos on the channel about that I'll put links to all these things in the description

But for now, I'm just gonna click dismiss So our final step is to activate the child theme So let's just go to appearance and themes Running the child theme is good practise, because it basically allows you to do updates and stuff a lot easier, so just trust me on that I'm gonna click add new in the theme section, and then upload theme

And then I'm gonna choose a file again, and this time I'm gonna select Kingdom-child Then instal now That's all done, let's click activate And that's done Let's just take a look at the front of the site

And there we go, you see it's all changed I mean it still doesn't look anything amazing right now, but we've got our cart up here and this kind of menu thing, which we'll need to adjust or not, but it's starting to take shape Trust me, it'll come together very soon The next step is to instal WooZone, which is our Amazon Affiliate plugin We're gonna need to go and download that right now and instal it, so on to the next step

(jazzy music) So I'm over at CodeCanyon, which is where you can get ahold of the WooZone plugin, it's called WooCommerce Amazon Affiliates WordPress plugin Not actually called WooZone actually, now look little WZone there It's known as WooZone, it's always been called WooZone, I don't know why they've changed the name on it You'll find a link to this page in the description and I'll put one up now in a card as well It's an affiliate link, so if you use it, thank you very much

Now hopefully if you followed my advice earlier when we were purchasing Kingdom, you've got enough credit in your Envato account, you can just purchase this straightaway without having to load up any more cash Cost for the plugin, as I mentioned earlier, is just $43 For that you get the plugin, which is very important obviously You can get future updates and you get six months of support from the developers AA-Team Now I've already got a few licences for this plugin, and by the way you do need a licence for each site you're gonna run, so if you're thinking of having multiple sites, you are gonna need to buy multiple licences

But anyway, I'm gonna click download You're going to need to purchase and then download I can just find it in my downloads section I've got quite a few things in here, there we go So I'm gonna click download all files and documentation

Put it in the right folder, if I can just find it My messy computer Save, there we go Let's take a look at the file we've just downloaded Here it is, so we're just gonna double click it to extract it

There we go it's got a folder called 1005, again it's the version number of the plugin Yours may be different, but don't worry too much about that Let's have a look in the folder and there we've got two more folders, one called licencing and one called plugin

And within plugin, we've got WooZonezip and that's what we're gonna be uploading to our website So let's do that now, we can just close this Don't need this right now And let's go back to our website, and I'll actually close CodeCanyon, 'cause I don't need that

So back into dashboard Just close that, keep it tidy And then into plugins And add new, this message is just not gonna leave me alone is it? (laughs) I'm gonna dismiss it again one more time Go away, there we go

Then upload plugin Choose file, and then let's navigate to the folder with the version of 1005 for me Then plugin, and then WooZone

zip (clicks) And then I'm gonna click instal now That's installed, let's click activate And there we go So there are a few more messages popped up, I mean we've already got Kingdom installed, that's fine

Let's click dismiss this notice And there we go, now we've got a few things we need to do just to get everything up and running The first is it says our memory limit is too low, so we need to adjust that We'll do that in a moment And the other thing is we need to add our item purchase code to get it all working

So we do need to go back to CodeCanyon actually Let's just do that now, so back to CodeCanyon And back to the WooCommerce page, and under the support tab, if you scroll down It's got some purchase codes What we're gonna do is copy your purchase code into your clipboard and go back to your site and just paste it in

Click activate now And there we go Well good to know we've got this setup wizard, so let's run through it, get started So it's asking you what kind of site is Bowowtechco

uk It's kind of a blog and an online store So let's go for blog And next And it's a fresh instal

So here we've got a question, with what purpose you want to use WooZone, Wzone, the language (chuckles) English is quite good as you can see I expect it's the second one, I'm creating a new website with the sole purpose of having a store featuring Amazon products And then next So these are settings that it's done for us

So want the on site cart, we want the 90 day cookie, the reviews tab, the cross selling Product availability by country box, I don't actually want that, so I'm gonna untick that You only really need that if you're gonna be promoting products from multiple Amazon countries I don't want the coupon thing, the next one is checkout email, so it will ask for an email address before the checkout process Happens that I'll leave that on, but make sure that you've got a privacy policy on your site

I'm gonna leave remote Amazon images and I'm gonna leave show free shipping So click next And here we've got a few options, actually up to you on this You can decide the prices setup, you answer whether you wanna put in prices for products that just have Amazon or if you wanna put in the prices from the third party sellers that are on Amazon I'm actually gonna set it just to only Amazon

I find the site works a bit better if you have that option set to only Amazon Again, on the import I'm gonna set that to only Amazon And leave that as import as publish, which means as soon as we import stuff, they're gonna go live on the site I don't wanna import free products I do wanna import attributes, so click next

And leave the number of images and variations to all I'm gonna leave spin on import on, that basically means the descriptions will be rewritten by a computer to make them unique They may need checking We'll go into that in a little bit more detail later when we start adding some products I'm gonna click next

Here's the checkout message, so this is what people see before they get redirected to Amazon That's fine Three seconds is fine And change the buy button text if you like, I'm gonna leave it as it is I'm gonna leave all these options as they are for now, we can, of course, change them later

So this page is where we're gonna enter our affiliate IDs and our keys in order to access the Amazon API and download products and that kind of thing So let's go to Amazon Now and I'll show you how that you can sign up as an affiliate and how you can get all this information (jazzy music) Okay, so we're over at Amazoncouk, you'll of course head over to whichever Amazon you're looking to promote, maybe it's Amazon

com Or maybe an Amazon for a different country But what you wanna do is scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page And in the footer here, and under make money with us, you'll see the associates programme Give that a click

And then what you wanna do is click this join now for free And then you'll need to sign in with your Amazon account Now I'm already an Amazon Affiliate, as you'd probably guessed, so if I sign in I doubt I'll be able to sign up again So look, oh I can So let me just take you through this wizard

Even though I'm already signed up, let's just see what happens So it's already got my address details And then you've gotta select whether you are a US person for tax purposes, I am not Then here you need to enter your websites, so enter your domain name of the site that you're setting up For me it would be BowWowTech

I'm not gonna do all this right now because see, I'm already signed up But you need to add your website there Now don't worry that you obviously haven't got it signed up and built yet, that doesn't matter Amazon are only gonna come and check out your application when you start sending out some traffic and start making some sales So we'll just put something in so we can get onto the next step

So we're not gonna actually complete it BowWowTechcouk And then it'd be next

And then in here you can choose your associate ID so that's basically a word, whatever that Amazon are gonna recognise that the traffic comes from you with, it could be anything you like And then here you need to type in what your website is about, so you would explain that you're helping people find the right products and you're gonna have also blog content and try to put a little bit of detail in here, it'll probably help your application go through You've got some boxes to tick, in terms of the stuff you're gonna be promoting And what type of website you've got And all these questions, you need to answer them all I'm afraid

It shouldn't take too long and then you need to tick that box and then you're all done So I'm not gonna do all this, like I said, I'm already done What I'm gonna do now is I am gonna sign in to the affiliate programme and show you what you've got Here we go So this is the dashboard that you get when you are signed up as an Amazon Affiliate

So first thing we need to do is set up associate IDs Now you've just entered one when you signed up, so that should be already up here, well this one up here, but you can have multiple ones So if you've got different websites, you can kind of track how each one's doing separately To manage them, you come up here and then click manage your tracking IDs And I've got all these ones, you simply add a new one by clicking on this add a tracking ID

Let's call it BowWowTech Now you may not need to do this, because you just probably created one when you set up and if you don't need another one, that's fine Just use the one that you set up when you registered That's been created successfully Now what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna copy that into my clipboard and I'm gonna go back to the WooZone site, the wizard is still here

I'm gonna scroll down and I'm gonna paste that into the UK box like that Now the API keys, or these access keys, that's what WooZone uses to pull that information from Amazon, you know like the description, prices and all that kind of thing Now recently Amazon changed the terms of service with regards to this API and getting access to these keys, they said that you actually need to get three sales before you can get them But don't worry, this is not a problem We can add a few products and we can add some content to a site without them

We can add some products using a Chrome browser extension that's a new feature of this version of WooZone, I'm gonna be showing you how to do that in a few moments Don't worry if you can't get access to the keys right now If you're already an established affiliate and you have made some sales, let me show you where you can get these keys and this will apply to you as well after you've made your initial three sales You go back into the Amazon dashboard, you go to tools, and then the product advertising API You've got these manage your credentials buttons, we need manage your credentials, let's give that a click

And you sign in again with your Amazon account Then in here, you can click continue security credentials And then you've got this access keys section Click on the plus And in here are all your keys and you can if you haven't already got one, you can create a new one

And it will generate you a key So I've already got some access keys, so what I'll do just to show you exactly the process I will delete my current access key And I will create a new one by clicking on this blue button here And then that's done and then if you click the little arrow here, you can click the text even, it will show you your access key and secret access key And what you wanna do is just copy

Then, whoop, let's just remove whatever's in there already and paste that in, go back here, get this secret key Copy that and then paste And we're all set up Also don't worry too much about the keys right now if you haven't got access to them because you haven't had enough sales, I'll show you how you can import some products anyway and get up and running and then when you are approved, you can come back and do it, this step is pretty straightforward So the last thing is our main affiliate ID is UK, the request type is auto detect, that's fine

The import location, again, is UK Let's click check And when it's green with a tick, we're all good And click finish So that's our WooZone all set up

Click close So we still need to do the memory, we'll do that in a moment So if you need to change those keys in the future, or you need to add them because you've just been approved you'll find them under Amazon config, which is in WooZone down here And you can see the keys are here, I've just added, when you wanna add some new ones, you just enter them in here The key first and then the secret and then click add

And you're done And then if we scroll down, you can change your affiliate IDs here and all the other settings to do with importing from Amazon So the final thing we need to do, with regards to getting this WooZone installed is increase this memory limit, get rid of this message So we're gonna do this ourselves If you ask HostGator to do it, they probably will say they can't do it and that you should go on a higher package or something

But that's not strictly true (chuckles) We can do it ourselves The easiest way to do it is with a plugin Let's go to plugins and add new And in the search box I'm gonna type in wp-config, and we're gonna type edit

It's gonna do a search across the WordPress plugin directory which is full of free plugins And if we scroll down, it's this one I want with the big cog, click instal now That's gonna download it and instal it And then I'm gonna click activate And that's now active

So if we scroll down, we've got this new option here, WPCF Editor Let's give that a click And the first option here we've got the memory limit Let's just whack that up to 128M, click save So this is a warning that's saying that if everything's not good, then you can restore it by clicking there

It's recommended to test the site, so that's all fine I'm just gonna open a new tab and just go over to the site and just check we're all good No errors or anything And we have got an error message come up but that's actually not anything to do with the memory problem, so we'll sort that out in a moment Let's just go back and click update and we're all happy

And then done And now that memory message has gone So the other error message which we just saw, that has to do with the PHP version, I believe, so we can adjust that in our HostGator control panel You may or may not get this error message Of course if you do, let me just quickly show you how you can fix it

I'm gonna head back to my HostGator control panel Remember you can find these details in the email you received from HostGator, if you've forgotten what they are Well it looks like I have, hang on Let me get the right password There we go

Let me update that password So we need to make sure we're on the right website, I'm on the BowWowTech, you can see over there If we just scroll down, what we're looking for is PHP version There we go, PHP selector, that'll do So we're on 5

6, we need it 70, ideally We can go for 71, let's see, I think that's the latest version I don't know how stable it is

But I think we'll be fine, let's click update That's done, if we go back to our website and just refresh and see if it's all working, okay Seems good, that message is gone We're all done, we've got WooZone installed, we've got Kingdom installed Basically got everything installed that we need to be installed, so now we're ready to start making this website our own, adding some products, adding some content, getting it all up and running and live

So on to the next step (jazzy music) So the next few steps in this tutorial are all around adding content to your website Now I'm doing the content before I do any of the appearance stuff, so things like adding a logo, changing the colours, that kind of thing I'm gonna do the content first, because content is far more important than how your website actually looks It's gonna be the content that brings traffic to your website, it's gonna be the content that sends that traffic off to Amazon to converge and to place an order and so that you earn some commission

So this sort of site, we've got two different types of content, we've got products and we've got blog content, so things like articles They're both very important and I recommend that you have both You add some products to your site and then you add some blog content too, and then ideally, you like the two together and I'm gonna show you how to do that as we go forward So for example, you'd write an article around certain products, maybe it's a review, maybe it's a guide and then you link to those products on your site When it comes to adding products, I'm gonna show you how to do it in two different ways

The first way I'm gonna show you is by using the Chrome extension that comes with WooZone Now using the extension, you can add products without an Amazon API key, so that's perfect for you guys that are just starting out that when you haven't been fully approved by Amazon, you don't have access to that API key, you can add some products this way It is a bit slower than using the API key, but it does work But then the second way I'm gonna show you how to use the insane import mode, which does use the API key and allows you to pull in products very quickly Then you can pull in a large amount of products in no time at all

So let's add some products The first thing we need to do is we need to instal the WooZone browser extension that works with Google Chrome Google chrome is available for both PC and Mac If it's not your browser of choice at the moment, then you're gonna need to go and instal it just search Google for Google Chrome, you'll find it, instal the browser, it looks like this It's the one that I'm using

Once you've done that, come to your site and login and then go to the dashboard and then go to WooZone And then first option, or maybe the second option below dashboard is direct import extension If we give that a click, it comes over here and you've got this link, get the WooZone, Wzone, direct import extension here let's give that a click Takes us off to the Chrome Store, now I've already got it installed actually it says it's disabled, so I just need to enable it You'll need to click the green button up here which will say add to Chrome

And once you do that, and it's enabled like that, you then get this little W up here And you're ready to go So let's go back to our site and make sure the API URL is the same as your website URL, which it is for me, and click generate new key And you get a whole lot of letters and things like that, click save the settings Okay that's saved

Now we've got this message come up across the top that says do you wanna authorise, and let's click authorise It says the website's successfully added and ready to go If this message doesn't pop up for you straightaway, just refresh the page in your browser, it should come up And then you're all good Now the next step is to add some categories, so you're gonna need to have an idea of the sort of products you're gonna be importing, hopefully you do by now

Of course you're gonna add product categories at a later date, but we're gonna add a few now So product categories are basically logical ways that we can group products together It'll become clear in a second, so I'm gonna go to products, I'm gonna go to categories Now I've got an idea of the sort of categories that I want to add because I've already got some blog content written out, which I will be showing you very shortly Within that blog content, I've got some links to products

You're obviously gonna go over to Amazon and do some research in your niche or niche, depending on how you like to say it And you should have an idea in terms of the categories that you want to add product to So let's add a new category, and just start typing in this box here The first one is all around showering and bathing your dog So I'm gonna call it showering, a little and sign, bathing like that

That's perfect We'll leave all the rest the same, you can add a thumbnail if you like, that does sometimes appear around the site so a thumbnail an image that I'd find, an image of some bathing product and I could add that But I'll leave it blank for now There we go, that's added The next category is all around dog walking, so I'm gonna type dog walking in here

And there we'd add loads of dog walking products and we'll do that in a minute here Click add new category Now when it comes to adding categories, you can organise them in a kind of hierarchical, easy for me to say, hierarchical structure So for example you could have, you know, dog walking and then below that you might have leads, harnesses, that kind of thing If you wanna add a subcategory, like leads, you could simply type it in like that and then you set the parent category as dog walking and add new category

Then leads kind of sits below that and it's a nice way to kind of structure your site But I'm not gonna do that right now I just wanted to show you how it works in case you want to do it that way And of course when you're importing products you get the option to decide which category those products are going to be put into The next category is all around fitness for your dog

Maybe we'll call it dog fitness, be better for SEO And I don't want any parent category I'm just gonna add that And I've got a couple more that I wanna add The next one is puppy training

Of course you may not know all the categories of the products you're going to be adding right now, so don't worry, just add a couple to get you started and then you can always come back and add some more at a later date We've got the puppy training, we've got the fitness, we've got walking, we've got showering and bathing And then the final one is gonna be cameras, dog cameras And then add new category So that's perfect, we've got categories added now

And what we can do is we can add these categories as a menu on our site, so across the top of the site where you have your links We can have these added, so let's do that now To do that, I'm going to go into appearance and menus And there I need to give the menu a name Let's just call it main menu

That's a good name, because that's gonna be the main menu And then down here we've got all the things that we can add, so we can add pages These are the pages we've got on our site, not many right now, just the kind of standard shopping pages Posts, if you had any blog posts, you could add them All I want is product categories

Now I can't see product categories here, so if you can't see product categories either, you need to come to the top, go to screen options Then tick product categories Not quite sure what that warning is, I'm not too worried (laughs) Let's close that, and now we've got product categories and let's go to view all and here they are Let's add all of those

(clicking) Like that And then I'm gonna tick the display location as the main navigation, we might use these other ones later There we go, so now if we go take a look at the site, see I've got my links there across the top It's looking pretty basic (laughs) at the moment, I will say, but it's gonna get there So let's add some products

So the first way I'm gonna add products is using that Chrome extension that we just installed And let's do some things around the showering and bathing category to start with So I've got a number of articles that I'm gonna add to the site very shortly, so I know roughly the kind of products that I need to add So to use the chrome extension and to add some products to our site, we need to head over to Amazon, I'm gonna go to Amazonco

uk, as that's the site that I'm promoting And we've got this bar now across the top which is from the extension that we installed, that means it's working First thing I'm gonna add is a Furminator, which is a dog brush thing So I'm gonna do a search and then just basically you need to find the product now that you want to add, so We've got this one here, is this one for a dog or for a cat? Dogs, cats

Also, I don't think it's an official one is it? Hmm, I don't know Well these look quite good Well let's take a look at this one, looks pretty good So I'm just gonna click through to the product page and we now get the special bar across the top, which allows us to import products into our site So I said earlier, this method is best if you haven't currently got an API key, if you do have an API key, we'll be importing in a different way and I'll show you that very shortly

So this product has got five variations, you can have it for long hair, short hair, and there's different sizes available So you probably wanna import all of those So let's import all variations I'm gonna click the little cloud, it's gonna go away and do it's thing There we go, the product has been added

If we click view the product, here it is It's brought in all the images, brought in the variations, so you can select long hair, short hair, and the size It's only brought in the sizes that are actually available on Amazon at the time, there's a few that are out of stock Now WooZone will update your products every single night With stock levels and prices, so you don't have to worry about that and if you scroll down, you can select quantity and then add to carT

In fact there should be an add to cart button there, in fact it is there, but it's white So don't worry too much about that just yet When we adjust the colours a bit later on in the video then that button will appear Now you're probably thinking, but we didn't add it to any categories Those categories that we just set up, we didn't get to select them

And actually, you're right, we didn't and there's a reason for that There's a slight bug in the Chrome extension as it stands at the moment Now maybe by the time you're watching it, it will be working properly What you're supposed to be able to do now when you're importing, so when you're on this page It says there's a duplicate product now because I've just imported it

But yeah, you're normally able to come over here and then on the three line burger menu You are able to select a category Now unfortunately, it only allows you to select categories that have products in them And obviously those categories that we just set up, they don't have any products in, so they're not appearing So what it's done is it's imported this product into the Amazon category

So the workaround is this We're gonna add a product into each of these categories And then it will work as it should If you're confused, don't worry, I'm just gonna show you how it works right now and it'll all become clear So let's edit this product

Just while I'm looking at it, I'm gonna click edit product, I'm on my website And here's the category down the side here, so we can see that it's added to dogs, grooming, shedding tools Which is not the categories that I set up This has been imported from Amazon I don't want to use these, because Amazon categories can get quite messy

I want it in my showering and bathing category Although I may need to rename that later, because I don't know how a brush logically fits in there, but for this example, it's fine So I'm gonna add it to showering and bathing, click update Okay, so now that's in the correct category Because I like to keep things nice and tidy, I'm just gonna delete those Amazon categories that came in, which are these three

So I'm just gonna tick those, I've gone into products and into categories I'm just gonna tick these and delete Okay And we can see that there is one product in our showering and bathing So now, when we go back to Amazon and say you wanted to add another showering and bathing product, which I do, because I'm gonna have a few products in that category

Next one is a Glantop I'm gonna put Glantop pet, which is a cleaning thing for a dog, there we go Oh that dog looks like he's enjoying himself, doesn't he? (chuckles) So this is a weird kind of washing thing, I thought it was pretty cool And you can click either one, I mean this product doesn't actually have any variation so this one is probably fine, but before I do that, I'm gonna come up here, I'm gonna click on the burger menu and now, we've got our showering and bathing category shown because it's got a product in it So hopefully that makes sense, you need to add one product manually by importing it and then letting it go into the Amazon categories, and then moving that product into the relevant category that you've just set up earlier, then you can delete those Amazon categories

It is a bit of a pain and maybe by the time you watch this video, AA-Team, the developers of WooZone will have fixed it and it will detect the correct categories, even if they don't have products in them So let's select showering and bathing And let's click this button to add it It says it's done it, let's click view the product and there we go, again, the add to cart button's not showing I'll show you how to make it show very shortly

So hopefully that's clear enough now so that you can see how to add products using the chrome extension What I'm gonna do now is I'm gonna add a few products using the insane import mode Now this mode uses the Amazon API key that I had earlier So if you've got an Amazon API key, you're gonna be able to do it this way If you haven't, you can probably skip this step and move on to the next bit, which is where I'm gonna be adding some blog content

I will put a time up on the screen now, so you can skip forward And then obviously you can come back to this point once you've got your Amazon API keys and then do this bit Let's add a few more bathing products using the insane import mode So I'm gonna go into the dashboard What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna add a load more Furminators, 'cause there seemed to be a few on there and using this import mode would be a really quick way of doing that

So you go down to WooZone and then you go to insane mode import And if we scroll down, we'll find that we've got a search for products box here Now we can just type in a keyword It gives some suggestions Let's go for Furminator for dogs

Select a department if you want, this can be handy if you wanna kind of refine the results that are coming up, let's go for pet supplies And you can go even deeper if you want, and go for dogs And that's probably enough You can set maximum prices, minimum prices, manufacturers, whatever you'd like really Then this bottom option allows you to select how many pages of results you're gonna import

So I'm gonna go for first five, it really depends on exactly how many products you want to bring in Of course the relevance is not so good as you go into more pages Let's click launch search (clicks) So it's just bringing down the products from Amazon It takes a few moments

Then we're all done So we've got a tick, so everything seems to be okay Then here, it will show us the products that it's found We click this button here, we can see all of them So we've got some more Furminator tools

We've got a gift box Some shampoo So basically you wanna have a look through here Any products that you don't want to import, like these ones haven't got any images, so you can just untick them So make sure they're all relevant, and they all look like they're working okay

That one's not either And then when you're happy, come down to this panel I'm gonna leave the images set to all, 'cause I want all the images to come down We'll leave the variations on all as well So all the variations

Gonna leave the spin on import ticked, as I said earlier, that will actually rewrite the copy for me And I'm gonna leave import attributes ticked as well Here we can select the category, so I'm gonna put it into my showering and bathing category If you don't select one and leave it on use category from Amazon, it will create some categories and your site can get into a bit of a mess if you do it that way I'm gonna leave it on do it now, 'cause I find that works better

And then click import products It's gonna take a few moments Okay, so it's finished Now there's been a few that it hasn't been able to import because of the setting that I set earlier Where I'm set to only import products from Amazon themselves and not from third parties

So if you're not getting enough products coming in, you can always go and adjust that setting You'll find it in the Amazon config under WooZone So let's have a look at the products, we go into products over here and go to all products So we'll find them and see they're all here Of course if we go to the front of our website, if we take a look in the showing and bathing, oh did I do a typo? (chuckles) It looks like I did

Okay, well let me click on it then I'll show you how you can edit these categories Me and my typing So here in showing and bathing, (chuckling) silly me, we can see our products and here they all are They look a little bit weird at the moment, 'cause they're all just in one column, but we can adjust that in a moment when we get on to doing the appearance of the site So yeah, if you've made a typo and you need to make a correction, you can just simply edit the category when you're looking at it

Change it to showering, that's better Click update Let's go back and have a look That's better, it's not changed in the menu though, so we can adjust that by going into menus and then finding the relevant category, clicking the little arrow and correcting it And click save

There we go, that looks better Okay, so we got all the typos fixed For those of you that may have watched my videos before, you'll know that I tend to leave in the odd mistake here or there just to show you how I get 'round them and just to show that I'm human like you guys, and you are gonna make a few mistakes when you're setting up a website, that's fine You can always fix them, the typos, that kind of stuff But yeah, we've got that fixed, let's just have a look at the category one last time with all our lovely products

Here we go, oh it's displaying properly now Remember a moment ago, it was just kind of displaying a big stretched image, it's okay now That could've been to do with my browser cache or something like that, but hey, it's fine now So you've got a nice layout of four columns and all the products Looking good

So the next thing I'm going to do is I'm gonna add an article to the blog I'll show you how to do that And then we've kind of got some content on and then probably what I'll do is when I'm not recording, I'll add a whole load more products and articles just to fill out the site to get a nice site full of content Then we can move on to the styling and appearance and get the site looking really nice and of course, put together the home page maybe add a few other pages that we might need like about us, privacy policy, that kind of thing But anyway, on to the next step, which is adding some blog content

(jazzy music) So before I add some content, there's just one little change that I wanna make to the website and that is the permalinks Now the permalinks are basically the structure of the URLs that we're gonna be generating with the site, so anything that comes after the domain name up here, after the slash, that we can effect how that looks At the moment, let's just go and have a look at the settings So if we go into settings and permalinks, at the moment, it is like this It's got like /index

php then it adds the year, month, day and post name to generate the website addresses This is a bit messy for me, so I'm gonna just take this out by selecting all of it, clearing it out All a very simple structure I think it's better for us and I think it just looks tidier The structure I'm gonna go for is I'm gonna have the category and then I'm gonna have the post name

That's it, so simply come in here, click on those, click category, click post name It'll generate this for you Then you have a really nice permalink structure Once you've done that, come down to the bottom and click save changes All the rest is fine, with regards to products and that kind of stuff

It's best to get this done fairly early on, otherwise, when you start doing links and stuff, they'll be wrong So that's all done and we're now ready to start adding some content to the blog Okay so we're gonna be adding some articles to our website Now content is really important, when it comes to running an Amazon Affiliate website, it's a great way of attracting traffic to your site, 'cause you're able to target different keywords with your articles, be sure to check out some other videos I've got on my channel, including a full playlist around keyword research and how to find ideas for articles And everything to do with that

It's a great way of getting ranked on the search engines I mean your products will rank as well, but you can get some really good quality traffic with articles and it's good for keeping your site fresh and showing that you're adding more value than just copying Amazon by just becoming a mini e-commerce site So I've got 10 articles here that have already been written for me, now I've paid a writer to create these for me And they're all around, I think 1,500 words long I say, the longer the better when it comes to articles and the search engines

I found a writer over on UpWork and yeah, I just gave her some ideas in terms of what I wanted all around dogs and the kind of products I wanted to promote And she's come back with these articles So let's take a look at one of them, say this one, which is the first one you'll be adding because it includes some of the products I've already included, including the Furminator, that kind of thing So I'm just gonna open it up in word And then all we need to do is kind of copy and paste it

Now of course, you can write your own articles That's fine if you're into writing I'd say you want them to be around 1,500 words, this one's 1,451 words, which near enough And you wanna try and add some real value in your articles, maybe review some products, maybe offer some sort of guide around some products, that kind of thing This one is all around dog showering and bathing essentials

So I've got a bit of a blurb about why it's a good idea to wash your dog Kind of obviously, it'll smell better, that kind of stuff I've also got some images, which have been provided with the article And when it comes to using images, make sure that you've got the rights to use them Don't just kind of go and Google and take anything that you can find because they may be copyrighted and if you don't give the correct credit, or if you don't pay the royalties or whatever, you could get in trouble

These images are all good And then we've got the gadgets here, the Furminator, I mean I could probably add a few more images, that kind of thing So let's start adding it and we'll see how we get on So let's go back to the website What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna create a new post

So WordPress is generally made up of posts and pages Pages are more static, they don't change very often, they don't have a date, so things like your homepage, the about us, privacy policy, contact us, they're pages Your blog content, those are posts So any articles or news updates, that kind of thing, would be a post, so we go new post Okay and here we go, so the add new post page is very similar to the add new page page

Yeah, that's right, I think it's pretty much the same So the first thing is to add the title of the article So let's just go back into Word and copy and paste There we go, so you can just copy and paste straight in from Word Let's take this first bit of text and add the images in a moment

There we go, there's the first bit of text Then let's look at what else we've got Got a nice big image there, let's have this heading Why is it a good idea to bathe your dog So paste that and it's come across as a heading, too from Word, so if I just highlight it, I've got this selector here to adjust what level of heading it should be

It's a good idea to use headings within your content and basically just format your article in a nice readable way, with headings and bullet points And bold and italics, and all the kind of formatting you'd expect in a document I'll leave it as a heading two for now, we'll have a look at what it looks like when we publish it If it's too big, I can always turn it down to a heading three or four So let's add an image

I've got some images saved on my computer for this article, so just go to add media Then we can select from our computer Go to the right folder, some bathing photos here And I think this one here, wet dog will be fine Although I'll put some links in the description of this video of places where you can get some photos

I like iStock Photo and Shutterstock, they're very good You do have to pay, though for the images But they're very high quality And you know that when you've paid for an image, it's yours and you can use it and you don't have to worry about any copyright implications I'm just gonna click insert into post

There it is You've also got some formatting, you can just click here you've got right or left or centre I think I'll put him over to the right for now, and we'll see how that looks Let's got back and get some more text (clicking) Just gonna paste that in on this line here

And I think I want the image above, so you can just drag the image around I've put it there That looks good Next bit is some handy tips and another image Just copy that and paste

Let's add that muddy dog image But what I'll do, I'm gonna add the text first Might be easier Copy, paste Then add media again, upload files

And dog in mud You can add a caption or some alt text and things if you'd like, that could be beneficial for SEOs, so it might be worth doing, so you'd just basically describe what the image is in words You could do your alignment here, you can also adjust the size of your images as well, you've got full size, medium, or thumbnail And you can even add a link to the images if you like There we go, I want that to the right, actually

There we go, that image might be a little bit big You can kind of resize it with a little drag and drop like that So let's carry on, add a bit more text And then what we're gonna need to do is go through and kind of link all these products I haven't got the product on the site, I'm gonna need to go back into WooZone and add it

Or of course, you could link straight off to Amazon Although I prefer to link to the products on the site I think it just looks better, keeps it all tidy and is good in Google's eyes Because Google doesn't like too many affiliate links on one page We're gonna copy all of this stuff

And just remove that space there So here we go, we've got the Furminator here So I have already got the Furminator on the site So what I'll probably do is I'll change this bit here where we've got this link to Amazon And just put check out Furminator

I'm gonna make this bold and then make it a link So to make this a link, I'm just gonna highlight this bit of text, click the chain button, so I can start typing in this box I could just paste the URL in if I knew the URL I wanna link to, I could then choose the product I want to link to Now of course, I could create multiple links to different products, 'cause I've got quite a few Furminators I could even create a Furminator category and add all the products to that and then link through to that

That might be a good thing to do But for now, I'm just gonna link straight through to the product, just for this example So I don't know which one's which, but hey let's go for that one and let's click the enter button and then that link has been added So now we need to go through and basically add all the different products and the links I may want to even add an image and the best way to add an image is to take it straight from Amazon, because Amazon aren't very keen on you downloading images to your site and using them

They like you to kind of pull them in dynamically So it's really easy, what you can do is just go over to Amazon (clicks) And find the product you want, so Fuminator, one with a nice image, I wand so Yeah this is fine, any of these are fine And that's a cat one, let's not go for that one

Say I wanted to add this image to my article I'm just gonna get rid of the WZone thing 'cause it's a little bit in the way You can see that behind it there is the Amazon site strap Yeah, that does get in the way a little bit Can I move that, no

Probably you can turn it off, turn it off (clicking) Not right now But anyway, we can see behind, we've got image and text I click image, there is the image And then it gives me this bit of code down here, all I need to do is just copy that into my clipboard

Go back here, decide where I want to put the image, which is obviously around here You can just switch to the text editor, this allows us to see the kind of code and things that are going on on the post So here is Furminator, then I'm just gonna paste it before the text Like that If we go back to visual editor, there we go

I did actually want it to align right, but it's not, so I'm just gonna click there, there we go So that's the image added So like I said, I'll go through and will add the rest of the products And I'm gonna show you a few other things that you need to know when it comes to posts You've got some categories over here, so you can place your articles into a logical category

So this one could go into a category called articles Or maybe even how to guides, that sounds better And if you just add a category and it will automatically tick it and add your article, you can add your article to multiple categories if you'd like And add some tags, so you can add shampoo, dog bathing, dog shower kind of things Tags are useful for the site

'Cause it allows it to know which articles are similar That's good for like recommended posts and stuff like that You don't have to add tags, but it's good practise to add a few But the final thing is the featured image and this is the image that's gonna appear around the site when people are looking at your blog page, for example It'll also appear at the top of the article

So you want a nice big, clear, striking image And let's find one and click set featured image Upload files and this one I think is good, lab in bath There we go Set featured image, there it is

So let's just click publish for now and take a look Whenever you make any changes on WordPress, you always wanna click the publish or the update button Make sure that you save everything (clicking) And let's click view post And there's our image at the top

I think I might need to just adjust the image 'Cause it's been chopped off so I will do that in a second It's good to get the kind of ratios and everything right Then here is our article

There's our image There we go, it's looking good So I'm just gonna go through and finish off this article, add the rest of the links and then what we'll do is we'll set up the blog page and then I will go in and I will add a whole load more articles and really fill out the site Okay, so I've finished formatting and styling and kind of putting the whole article together The dog showering and bathing essentials, here it is

There's a couple of other little tweaks I'm gonna do right now while I'm recording But as you see, I've added all the images, we've got all the products on here, linking through to the products on the website So I've kind of imported loads of products, but also just click this on, you'll see, go through and have a look at the hairdryer on the site There it is, very nice Now the images are imported using the site stripe, as I showed you earlier

Actually just a note on that, I didn't mention that you do have to make sure that you select the right tracking ID, so let me just quickly find a product that'll do When you go up here and you know you wanna add an image or whatever, just make sure that you select the right tracking ID You've probably only got one, if you just registered, so it's nothing to worry about If you have more than one, you just kind of wanna make sure that that's correct Okay, so what I wanna show you first of all

Let me just go in and edit the post I've added a few lines, these things here Why'd I do that jump,I don't know why I jumped up These lines, now to add them, you just simply press this horizontal line button It's quite a nice way of kind of separating stuff, a very easy thing to do

If you don't see these extra buttons, though you just need to click on this toggle toolbar thing here and then you get a few extra options when you're editing, so that's the line that I've added there The other thing that I've done is I've removed all the prices from the article, now Amazon don't like you putting prices within articles Anything with a price, basically because it can go out of date very quickly Amazon prices change all the time, and they don't want you telling people the wrong price, basically Now it's fine to have prices on your products that you import with WooZone, that's fine, because they update automatically every night anyway

But obviously, when you've written something in an article, that's not gonna update automatically and it's gonna go out of date really quickly, so My advice is do not put prices in your articles There's one last thing that I want to show you on this article That is, I've noticed that when you do some bullet points like these, but they're not the right font size You can see they're smaller than the rest of the text

And that looks a bit weird Now there's no option on the theme to change the font size of the bullet points, so we're gonna have to do a little bit of custom CSS Don't worry, that may sound technical but it's not so bad And what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna generate the bit of code that I'm gonna put into my custom CSS box, which you'll see in a second And I'll put that code on the relevant blog post over at www

WPEaglecom And you'll find a link to it in the description of this video A link to the blog post, on my blog, wwwWPEagle

com And it has all the code snippets and everything you need So it's really straightforward But basically what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna generate a little bit of CSS, using the inspector You won't have to do this, all you need to do is copy the bit of code

I just wanna show you how I do it I've actually got some other videos on using the inspector and stuff to do customizations I'm typing in CSS attribute font size and then is it 18? Does that look about the right size? I should probably check what size this font is What size is this? It is 18, wow, what a guess, what a guess So now they're all the same size, looks way better

So I'm just gonna copy this little bit of CSS and close this inspector, then I'm gonna go into customise So within customise, we've got, right down at the bottom, we've got this additional CSS And then I can just paste my bit of code in, like that Click publish And we're done, so all you're gonna need to do is head over to www

WPEaglecom, find this blog post, find this little snippet of code, copy it, and then you can paste it into your additional CSS section as well Let's see what that's done Scroll down, yep It's all the same size now

Which is perfect So what I'm gonna do now is I'm gonna go away and again, gonna do a little edit now in the video, but I'm gonna go off and I am gonna add another nine articles to the site Which is gonna take me a little while, I think But I think it's worth spending a bit of time putting together articles and making sure they look nice and all that 'Cause they'll pay dividends in the future when they attract some traffic to your site and generate some sales

So yeah, i'm gonna add some more articles, I'm gonna add another 9, because I think 10 articles is a great place to start when you're launching a site It kind of, you've got a bit of content and that fills out the site nicely Along with those articles, I'm gonna need to add some more products So I'll be filling up these categories with products So I'll be adding some dog cameras, some fitness stuff, walking stuff, and puppy training things

Once I've done all that, we'll then continue the video I guess you're gonna need to go off and add some content as well to your site Of course, you can always add it at the end That's fine, it's up to you If you don't wanna waste time adding content right now, you could carry on and do some styling and all that kind of stuff first, and then add your content later, it's entirely up to you

But once I've added all that stuff, we're then gonna add the blog page, I'll probably add it on the end here Where it says blog and then people can click through and see all the articles in one place So yeah, let's do an edit and then yeah, I'll be right back and we'll set up that blog page Okay, so I've got all my articles on the site, all 10 of them and here they all are Looking good

We'll just come and look at the homepage here I'll just click through So I haven't done the homepage yet, we're gonna be doing that in a few moments But yeah, all the articles are on, it took a little while to get them all looking nice I spent a couple of hours on it, but it's all done now

And I'm happy All the products are imported, too that are related to the articles, so all these categories have got some things in now Dog security, with all the cameras and things like that So a couple of things I just wanna mention before I add the blog page over here, the first is, I adjusted the height of this image, this featured image By default, it's quite shallow in terms of it's height and it was cutting quite a bit of the image off

So I wanted that a bit higher The way I did that was I added some custom CSS again, so in customise, then down in additional CSS I did this little bit of code here You'll find it over on wwwWPEagle

com on the relevant blog post, you'll find a link in the description of this video You can adjust this number to adjust the height of the photo so that it kind of works for you So let's set up our blog page I'm just gonna close this So you can call it blog, or articles, or news, whatever you like

I think I'm gonna go for blog So I'm gonna create new a new page, so I'm gonna enter a name here, I'm gonna call it blog Like I said, you can call it whatever you like Don't need to add anything in the content box, I'm gonna come across here, and I'm gonna select, under template, template blog, and I'm gonna click publish Now we need to set this page as the blog page and to do that, we'll come down and go into settings and then reading

I'm gonna click this button here, where it says a static page And then for the posts page, I'm gonna select blog We're gonna come back in here later and set the home page Just click save changes Now the final thing we need to do is just add that page to our menu, so appearance, and then menus

Then tick the blog page, click add to menu And there it is Save menu By the way, in here, you can kind of drag and drop stuff around as you wanna organise it You can also bring stuff across slightly to make it a submenu, it gives you that kind of drop-down effect, if you want to

But anyway, let's have a look at the site It says do I wanna save it, I've already saved So if we click on blog over here, there we go, we've got a blog page It looks the same as the home page right now, because we haven't added our home page, which is something we're gonna be doing in a few moments But there we go, the final thing I want to do is there is a post, let me just show you

That was already on the site, this one here called hello world And I'm gonna delete that, I don't need that So let me just show you where all the blog posts are If you go into dashboard and then posts and all posts Here's all our posts and then there's that hello world

Don't want that, click trash And it's gone You can do exactly the same with pages and all pages and products too, so if you've imported some products and you decide that you don't actually want those products on your site, just come into the products section and you can see all of your products and then you can trash them if you need to or of course you can edit them if you need to If you wanna remove a few in one go, you just simply tick which ones you wanna get rid of And under bulk actions you can move to trash, click apply to make that happen

So that's the blog all done, that's the content added, that's the products added So what I'm gonna do next is I'm gonna do a little bit of styling, I'm gonna add my logo, maybe set some colours, adjust the fonts, that kind of thing And then we'll do the homepage and then we're pretty much there So there'll just be a few final tasks that are a good idea to do, like adding Google Analytics and submitting to webmaster console But yeah, we're nearly there

Well done, if you've got this far in the video You're doing really well And yeah, before long, we'll have a site up and running So on to the next section (jazzy music) So the next thing we're gonna do is the styling on the website, so I'm gonna be adding a logo and changing the colours

So I'm gonna be using this logo, which is a template I purchased from wwwGraphicRivernet You'll find the link in the description of this video It is an affiliate link, so thank you very much if you use it

So on GraphicRiver, you can find loads of logo templates There's tonnes on there, so you should be able to find something suitable for you Once you've purchased it, you'll need to edit it in your favourite graphics package, maybe Photoshop, something like that If you don't fancy doing that, then take a look on my channel, I've got a few videos around creating a logo, there's a number of online tools that can help you get a logo put together really easily So let's go back to the site

So let's take a look at my logo I've got it just here, there it is As you can see, all I've done is change the text and move it to the side, nothing too fancy So let's add it to the site To do that, I'm gonna go into customise, and then logo, select image, upload files, select files and then I'm gonna find it on my computer

There it is And then choose image There we go, let's click publish And that's done, let's just close that and take a look There we go

The next thing I want to adjust is the colours I'm gonna use the colours that I've got in my logo I've used a dripper tool to identify the colour codes on these I've got them in my notes just here There we go, so I'm gonna just copy this to my clipboard, this is the orange colour code

You can find a dripper tool, by the way in most graphics packages There may even be one online, possibly So let's go back into customise Then we're going to scroll down and go to colours So the primary colour I want to be the orange

Like that, and then the secondary colour Don't worry too much about this preview, it doesn't look right to me Don't worry about that The second colour I'm gonna be using is yellow Let's paste that in like that

And for the menu background, I'm also gonna use this kind of gold orangey colour (clicking) Oh, that didn't quite paste properly Wait, that's not right (clicking) So I'll practise my copy and pasting There we go

And then for the menu state colour, I'm gonna put that to white, 'cause I think white will look good on these background colours, publish that Let's close and take a look There we go, doesn't look too bad Then what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna have a play with these fonts, I'm not too keen on this font The other thing I'll just notice is this menu, for whatever reason is not quite sitting in the middle

So I think maybe a little bit of custom CSS might be needed just to tidy that up So let's do that now, let's get this looking a little bit nicer on the eye I'm gonna just generate a bit of CSS Again, you don't need to worry about this I'm gonna put it on the blog post in WPEagle, so all you need to do is copy and paste, if you wanna adjust your main menu

So I can see a little bit of padding in here, that's probably what we need to adjust I'm thinking around, 22 or something 25? Ahh, look at that Looks much better I'm just gonna copy this and go into customise So yeah, all you need to do is copy and paste my code from WPEagle

I can't put it in the YouTube description, I'm afraid, they don't let me post any code in there So we don't need any of this There we go and publish (clicking) Let's close and take a look There we go, that's looking quite nice

So yeah, let's have a play with the fonts Let's just check everything's looking okay on the product side of things Yeah, the buttons have changed colour, the prices have changed colour to match Let me take a look At the products, all looking good

Oh and look, now we've set some colours, the add to cart button is working fine as well So you remember it wasn't showing earlier I guess that was just 'cause we hadn't set our colours So that's working as well So yeah, fonts

If we go up to customise again, and then we've got this theme, fonts section In here we can change the fonts Let me just see, so at the moment, we've got Rajdhani Is that how you say it, I'm gonna just change it like that And something should change, yeah

So this is the main kind of body font You can go for whatever you want to go for There's loads to choose from, as you can see So let's have a look at a few of these fonts Italiano

You want something nice and clear, I do (chuckles) Yeah, that's good for, and that's not clear at all That's some kind of handwriting type of font So just take some time, come through here and click around If you want to investigate them further, you can head over to Google Fonts, that might be an easier way to browse and find something you like

Mmm, that's a bit techy I want something softer than that What's Buda like That's a little bit kind of newspapery for me So let me just go through here and see what I can find

I'm gonna do an edit, I don't want you to sit and watch me scrolling through loads of fonts Okay, I've gone for Average Sans, whatever, for the body, so we can also adjust the size if we want to Make it bigger or smaller, just adjust that number, I'm happy with 14 Let's adjust the headings font I've got an idea of what I want

I think I wanna go for something similar to my logo font I think this will be similar to the logo font Let's have a look Yeah, if you look that is kind of a fun font, let's go for that The main menu font, this is this one here

We can just, let's go for the same as the heading, I think See what it looks like Again, you can adjust the sizes and weights So the weight is how bold it is For all the different types of fonts that you've got on the site, including your headings and all the way up to H6

Although I'm not sure if that is gonna work in the menu, that font is a little bit chunky Maybe if we turned the weight down on it, it's as low as it'll go Maybe turn the font size up Let's publish it and have a look Okay, I'm just gonna close to see what it looks like

I don't think it's quite clear enough I like the font, but yeah, it's not quite clear enough for the menu Yeah, it looks fine, here But not where it's white, that'll never show So let's go back and just adjust that a little bit more

So let's adjust it, maybe let's just go with the same as the body, which was the sans one (click) Yeah, I mean it's pretty boring, but it does the job Let's maybe just make it a little bit bigger, 22 And publish Ah, it's a little bit too big now, you see how it's gone onto two lines

I don't think a menu should ever go onto two lines so I'm gonna have to bring that font size down just a little bit, or I need to adjust the words that we're using But I don't want to do that, so let's just put the font size down again It's gonna have to be 20, fair enough Okay So while we're in these options, let's take a look at this top bar across the top here

It's obviously a good place for a top bar If we come in here, we've got the top bar and you can add a phone number if you like or not You can just take it out Now you can even turn off the top bar, if you want If you don't want this stuff kind of across the top

But I think it's good to have your social links, if you've got social profiles If you haven't then you probably will wanna turn it off Just gonna click publish on that I'll show you how you can adjust these social links They're under header, social options

And you can decide if you wanna turn them on or off And you can set the URLs of your social media Now I haven't got any set up just yet for BowWowTech, but I will be setting some up and I'll come back in here and I'll add Let's just have a look at a few other options in here You've got some shop options, where you can adjust the template

Which effects how the shop and products are laid out Adjust how many products are shown per page, on the category pages Turn off the star rating if you like So I've got the star rating settings there You can show product details, general description, I'll leave that on

This setting allows you to adjust whether you're gonna use the first paragraph for the product content For the product details general description or use the WooCommerce short description Show product details, turn it on or off Show product category, turn it on or off Show product tags

Show percentage discount instead of sale label Up to you, you can turn that on And decide when you want the discount percentage thing to show When it's more than 5% Here we've got an option around top filters for the shop page, I'm not using them

But you could use them if you wanted, you just add them in the widgets section And we've got bottom filters as well We're not gonna use either of them, so let me just turn those off Publish (clicks) There's a few options here around the blog, if you wanna show the date, the comments, or the category, you can turn that on or off in there

You've got some footer options here, so you can adjust the text that is right down here so it might be Let me just get rid of all of this Copyright 2018, WP Eagle

You can add a web address as well (typing) I wanted to make that word here a link, I'd have to add the pointy bracket and then an a and then href, then equals, then a speech mark, then I type in the web address here Which I don't have just yet because I haven't uploaded the video 'Cause I wanna link to this video that you're watching right now So yeah, you put the web address in there between the speech marks, then another triangle bracket thing pointing the other way and then you get to the other side of the word that you want to make a link

Triangle bracket, slash a, triangle bracket Simple as that Just copy it exactly, you'll be fine You can have the partners module on in the footer, we haven't gotten to that yet, but that basically allows you to add some logos And you can add some URLs for these

Let me just show you (clicking) Well I can't get down there, but there's basically some payment icons along the bottom and you can add some links just in there Okay, I think that's pretty much all of the kind of styling options that we need to worry about just for now So what I wanna do now is set up the homepage So on to the next step

(jazzy music) So let's get the home page set up We can't leave the site as just displaying our recent posts And I wanna add a nice homepage with a slider at the top and then show off some products underneath Maybe add a few other elements, we'll see how it goes So the first thing we need to do is create a page that's gonna be the homepage

So to do that we go to new and then page For the title we can add home or call it whatever you like really And that's it, we just need to publish the page Right and then that's done So to set it as the actual home page, so the page that displays when people come to your website, you need to go down to settings and then reading

And then here where it says homepage, we select the page we just created, mine's called home And save changes So now when we visit the site, we see a blank page called home We'll get rid of this word home in a minute So the first thing I'm gonna do for the homepage is set up the slider, so that's the bit at the top with the images that's gonna be promoting my articles

Now I can make it so that it generates it automatically so I don't have to keep updating it, so whenever I add a blog post, it's automatically added to the slider So to do that, we need to go into the dashboard And then scroll right down and go into slider revolution Then I'm gonna click new slider Scroll back to the top for the content source and it's gonna be a post-based slider

Here we can decide which posts we wanted to feature, so I'm gonna go by categories and tags And it's post There we can choose the category, I'm gonna choose both categories, so I just held down the shift key on my keyboard there to choose both But I just wanna have four posts in the slider Section two is just the title

Let's just call it homepage And the second box is the alias, let's call that homepage too Number three is we'll select the slider type, we'll just leave it as a standard slider And for slide layout, I'm gonna select full width So I just wanna adjust the height

That's too high for what I want I'm thinking around 400 would be okay Or so it looks like And the rest, I think we can leave as it is So let's click save settings

And that's our slider created, we now just need to sort out the template, so basically how the slides are gonna look We'll do that in here So I want to use the featured image of the post like that Just click the featured image I wanna set a link, so click on link and SEO

Then I'm gonna go to enable link and select enable The link is gonna be kind of dynamic, it's just gonna link through to the post that the slide's about, so I need to add a little wildcard template thing, so it's two of these brackets and the word link and then brackets again, like that Then here is what our slide's gonna look like There's a big W that basically represents the featured image from the post On top of that, I just want the post title

So I'm gonna click add layer text And remove the words caption text1 We click on this little filter or funnel thing, whatever it is and this brings up a whole load of meta information that we can dynamically add to our slider, so this one, the title Just gonna click title Click the little tick

And I want it to be in the middle So if I come over there, I can align centre then align middle I wanna use the font that I'm using on the site, the font I've got the logo that kind of thing So I should be able to find I'm in the wrong section

It's under here under font family You should be able to find the font I want which is called Luckiest Guy, if you remember There it is And let's make that nice and big, I reckon around 40 pixels Let's make the line height 48

The colour white is fine, we'll just see what it looks like I'm gonna click on this up here to save, the little floppy disc thing No one knows what a floppy disc is nowadays anyway, that's a bit of a weird icon, but hey So let's go and have a look at the site It's not gonna appear just yet, because we just need to adjust our homepage

So back to the homepage, we're gonna click edit page Scroll down, where it says select slider I'm gonna select my new homepage slider Where it says show title, I'm gonna turn that to no, because I don't wanna have the word home on the page Click update to save And let's have a look

There we go So that's just gonna scroll through the slides one by one We can adjust it, we can add some arrows, that kind of thing Now I'm wondering if I should make it just slightly higher, because it's chopping a few of the images off a little bit and this is a bit too wide So let's just adjust it

Go back into the dashboard, back into slider revolution Click on the cog So down here is the height, I'm gonna put this up to 500 Might make it a little bit too tall, but we'll see Let's add a bit of navigation

Come over here to navigation, enable arrows Think that'll be fine, let's click save Then let's just edit that slide so that the text isn't too wide The first thing we'll do is just adjust this behaviour setting And let's change it on the align setting

Just slide based That'll help us line everything up a bit better And then we go back to style I'm gonna set a width, because I don't want the text to be too wide And I think something like 50% might be alright, let's put 50% in anyway, let's go for 60, hey

Why not Like that Now I want it to go onto two lines if there is more text than there is space So just actually click on this little T Oop, it's being a little bit weird

Just click that so that the arrow is pointing down that'll give me a line break like that And then the final thing is, I want it to centre align the text So to do that, let's hit spaces If you don't see this panel, you click on this little arrow here and you get some extra options So you're in spaces, for text align, I'm gonna go for centre

Yeah, and that should be it Let's click save And visit the site Okay, our navigation arrows are showing and we're going on to two lines And the height of the picture is better

I mean it is quite big, but it's fine, I like it So now I'm gonna add some products to this homepage To do that, we need to edit the page with WPBakery So to do that, we're going to click on this link up here And scroll down and we can start adding some elements

So let's add an element Under WooCommerce, I'm gonna go for recent products, let's give that a click We're gonna leave these settings as they are 12 per page is fine And four columns is perfect, I'm just gonna click save changes then close

What I wanna do is I wanna add a title above the products so I click on the plus Now in Kingdom, we've got this Kingdom headline So let's add that And call this recent products Save and close

Now it's probably added it down at the bottom, let's have a look There it is So we can just drag it to the top past all these products, don't worry the products aren't gonna actually display like that Just the preview's gone a bit weird Just get to the top, come on

There we go, pop it there Let's click update on the top corner here That's updated, let's click close and have a look at what we've got There's our slider, there's our headline And here's our products, so they're in a nice carousel so you can just kind of scroll through

We're gonna add a couple more of these from different categories of products on the site, so let's go back in and edit again Let's add I'm going to WooCommerce, I'm gonna go for product category, again, 12 and 4 I'm gonna choose the bathing and grooming category to start with, why not, and save changes Close that And scroll down and see, I think that might be it, yeah, there it is

There's all our grooming bits and bobs Just above it here, I'm gonna add another headline So I'm gonna click on the little plus, Kingdom, Kingdom headline Just type in the name of the category (typing) You may have noticed I've changed a couple of the category names just to fit the products (groans) better

I think it was bathing and showering before, if you remember So there we go, let's take a look at the site now So we've got recent products, we've got bathing and grooming So that's coming together quite nicely I'll probably add a couple more of these

What I wanna also add is the blog posts, again, towards the bottom So let's edit again, of course there's loads of different elements that you can add with the WPBakery pagebuilder It's really up to you how you want your homepage to look So let's scroll back down to the bottom We're gonna click on this plus to add another element to the page

What I wanna add is a, if I can find it, a post grid, there we go And it's gonna display our posts in a nice grid format So I just wanna show four items and I want there to be four elements per row That'll just give us one nice row of posts And let's see it, let's click save changes

And close, then just above it, I'm gonna add, I'm gonna click on this plus, another header, Kingdom headline We'll call it dog technology I forgot how to spell, dog technology articles Something like that (clicking) Close and then update

Close WPBakery and have a look at what the site is now looking like There we go, so we've got our recent products, we've got our bathing and grooming products, I'd say I'll probably add a few extra categories to the homepage, just make it a bit longer And here is our dog technology articles Look at them, looking good And we can just click straight through

So that's pretty much it for the homepage Of course you'll play around with it and make it your own, add whatever you like But for a basic setup, I think this is fine So what I'm gonna do now, is I'm gonna add a few more of my categories, my product categories I'm just gonna show you a slightly different way of doing it

When you're editing with the WPBakery pagebuilder, you've got two options, you can edit it from the front of the site So you basically see what you'd see if you were looking at that site, sort of, it doesn't always work 100% But it gives you an idea It can be a bit clunky though, when you're trying to drag and drop stuff around So this is the front of it and you can see that the products they kind of don't display quite right, but it gives you an idea of what you're looking at

To speed things up to add those extra categories, I'm just gonna switch to the backend editor So click this button up here And then we can do it within the usual content section And we can see that here's our things, you've got Kingdom headline, our product category, and there's the blogs and all that kind of stuff So it doesn't give you a visual representation of what's going on but it's kind of clear and quicker to navigate

So if I wanted to really quickly just add some more categories, I can click this duplicate button just to add, how many have I got here, I've got four or five, so that's probably enough of them Some more headlines just go doink, doink, doink Like that Then I can just simply kind of drag them all down so that they're all nicely arranged properly There we go, so what's this one? Let's adjust this category, so I'm just gonna edit it now, 'cause obviously they're all gonna be showing the same category, 'cause I duplicated it

And change this one to dog fitness And let's change this headline to dog fitness, too Like that That's good, and let's do this other category here Let's change that to dog security

Change the headline I'm just gonna click on the pencil there to change stuff Dog security And then this last one, let's change this to dog walking, probably add another one, 'cause then I've got puppy training, but I think that's enough for now (clicking) It was dog walking, wasn't it? I think it was

I should be paying attention more Yeah, so that's all done, let's just check this headline is good Yeah And this one Ah, that's not quite right, that should say whatever this category is

Bathing and grooming of course Let's just change that (clicking and typing) There we go, and let's click update (tone sounds off mic) now let's take a look at our homepage Okay, there's our recent products, there's our bathing and grooming, there's dog fitness, the dog security, the dog walking, and there's our articles

So it's looking really good now, the homepage I'm really pleased with it The next job is to add some static pages, so we're gonna be adding the about us, the contact us, all those kind of things And then we'll kind of set up this footer area, add some links, add our Amazon disclaimer just to be clear that we are an affiliate site and all that good stuff Well done if you got this far, you're doing really well

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, there's not too much more to do Anyway, keep going, let's move on to the next step (jazzy music) Okay, so let's add some static pages I'm not gonna add too much content to these pages, 'cause that's really gonna be down to you You're gonna need a privacy policy

You can find them online, just do a search for privacy policy or free privacy policy Or is it privacy, I dunno You know what I mean So yeah, go find one of those and adjust it to suit your needs It's a good idea to have one

And of course, the about us page is gonna be all about you as well So let's create those pages, I'm gonna go to new and then page So the first one I'm gonna have is about us, then also you put whatever information you want to put about yourself and your business, your affiliate site and that kind of thing, so something like, we find the best dog technology products online on Amazon, let's say, just for you Of course you would add more than this, but just for this demonstration that'll do for now Everything else you can leave exactly the same, so click publish

The next page we're gonna add is the privacy policy so I'm just gonna click add new again Privacy policy Let's click publish I'll find something later to add to that And then I'm gonna add a contact us page as well where I'm just gonna have a form that sends an email over to me

(typing) Like that, and we'll come back and add the form in a moment So to add that form, if we go over here to contact forms There's one here called contact form one, let's just edit that This is a plugin that we're using, contact form 7, it's installed when you instal the theme Let's just change this to contact us

So that's fine, it's got your name, your email, subject and message I think that's all fine There in the mail tab, it's got my email address and everything, so that's fine Everything else is fine, so let's click save And to add this form, all we need to do is just copy this short code

So I'm gonna just copy this little bit of text Go back into pages, find that contact us page Here it is, edit I'm gonna put something like send us a message Then I'm just gonna paste in that short code, click update

And then let's have a quick look at the page There's our lovely form, perfect So what I wanna do now is I wanna create a menu for the top, 'cause I wanna add links to those pages across the top So let's go into menus, you can get in this way Just hover on your site name and then select menus

Then I'm going to go create a new menu Gonna call it top menu And create menu Then in here, I'm going to add the about us, the privacy policy, the contact us, and the blog, why not Let's add those

And we can rearrange them as we'd like Something like that's fine Then I'm gonna select top navigation and save And let's take a look Okay, so we've got our pages, we've got our top menu that's looking good

So the next step is to take a look at this footer area So on to the next step (jazzy music) so to add some elements to our footer, we need to add some widgets The first one I'm gonna add is my affiliate disclaimer, disclosure, whatever you want to call it It's very important

You make it very clear that you are an Amazon Affiliate and that you're promoting Amazon products Basically otherwise Amazon will be cross with you and then you might get in trouble, so let's do that now So I'm gonna go into widgets, I can access it by hovering on the site title and then selecting widgets And then over here we've got footer content so we can just drag whatever we like into that area So I'm gonna go for text, so here we go

Find the text widget, scroll back up again, drop that in And then we can just paste in or write in some text, that's basically the same as when you're adding a post or a page Now I've got a disclosure to hand, it's in my notes Let me just find that There it is, and just copy this

Then I'm just gonna paste that in I need to insert my name, BowWowTech And then I need to enter the correct Amazon site Feel free to copy this off wwwBowWowTech

couk for your own site, obviously you'll change the name This is the title (typing) We are an Amazon Affiliate, aren't we? Let's just have a look at what that looks like Make sure you click save, by the way, on that blue button

Let's scroll down and take a look There it is Okay, that's a bit too long, it's being cut off, so we just need to adjust the length of the title I'll just change it to something else So let's add a couple more widgets and fill out this footer a little bit more

The next thing I'm gonna add is the links that we just added to the top And then I'm gonna add some links to some categories and maybe some links to some products So we'll go back into widgets So let's first adjust that, I'm just gonna call it Amazon Affiliate, that'll be fine And then I'm gonna add a menu, the menu that we've just crated for the top bar I'm gonna add that as well, so

Just select navigation menu, drop that in Just call it more info, and select that top menu Then next, I'm gonna add some WooCommerce categories or WooCommerce products Let's see what we've got So we've got, here we go

Or I can add recent posts, actually that would be a good thing Let's add some products first I think I'll go and put product categories You can of course add whatever widgets you'd like So product categories, that's fine

I don't wanna show hierarchy We'll see what that looks like If there's too many categories, obviously that'll look messy and you probably won't wanna use that but we'll see what that looks like And then finally, I'm gonna add recent posts Call it the latest from the blog, or no, Articles, just keeping in mind that you can't have too long a title

Otherwise it gets chopped Okay, so let's take a look at the site now Okay, so let's scroll down and take a look Okay, here's our footer Okay, it doesn't look too bad

You will notice there's an uncategorized category showing there, which I don't want, so I'm gonna adjust the widget in a second Also this doesn't look great, so what I think I'll do is I'm just gonna do a quick edit now in the video I'm gonna do a little bit of CSS tweaks, some custom CSS And then we'll come back into the video and I'll show you the CSS that I've created and you know, you just need to paste it into the customise You can find all the code over at www

WPEaglecom But I think we can make this look a bit better, so very quickly before I do that, I'm just gonna get rid of this uncategorized, which is very easy We just go back into widgets and then on the product categories widget, tick box to hide empty categories So yeah, let me just do a little bit of CSS adjustment get this footer looking better

For some reason the theme doesn't have a good looking footer I don't know why, so we can soup it up That's quite a bit better, but I think yeah, I need to take out some space, maybe increase this font size or maybe reduce this font size or something just to make it look better So let's do an edit and I'll see you in a sec Okay, so I've tidied up the footer on the site using some custom CSS As you can see, I've made the fonts all the same size, tidied up these articles so that it kind of cuts them off if they're too long, thought that looked a bit neater

I added a little bit of grey just to bring it out a little bit, make it so that it's clear that it's the footer So how I've done that is I've added some code to the custom CSS section within customise You can find this code, just like before, over on wwwWPEaglecom

Find the relevant post on there around this tutorial and you'll find it there It's basically this stuff here And of course you can adjust this if you need to So there's the font size for the menus, and some of the other stuff you don't need to adjust This bit does the cutting off of the titles for the blog posts, this bit here does the background colour and that so you can change the colour by changing that code, just there

So the footer's looking good, looking like it's all done And of course you can add whatever widgets you'd like to the footer But basically the site is pretty much there now You'll obviously want to add your content to your pages and say add any widgets that you'd like to the footer So what I'm going to finish this tutorial off with is I'm gonna connect Google Analytics so that we can see how many visitors the site gets

And all that kind of good information And I'm also going to instal an SEO plugin and I'm going to submit the site over to Google so that yeah, I hopefully get indexed and starts coming up on Google I'm not going to be going into the SEO in too much detail, because I've got other videos on the channel that do go into a lot more detail around SEO We're just gonna instal the plugin and I'll give you a quick overview and I'll show you how to submit to Google So let's get on to the final two steps

And yeah, then you're nearly there (jazzy music) Okay, so over at Google Analytics, it's a great way of tracking the traffic and the visitors that come to your website It's totally free to set up So head over to wwwanalytics

googlecom if you haven't already got an account, you'll need to sign in with your Google account And then you can go about creating a new property which is the screen that I'm on right now I've already got an Analytics account, I've had it for ages and I've got loads of websites attached to it, so that's why I'm starting here I don't wanna give away any of my client's data accidentally in the video Let's start setting up the property, so you need to enter your website name

Like that, and then you need to enter the URL Like that It's on HTTP at the moment I've got a video on the channel around setting up HTTPS sites, so do check that out if you do wanna be more secure Which could benefit your SEO rankings

But for now, we'll just stick with HTTP Select industry category Which I guess we'd be like shopping or something Doesn't really matter, and then set your time zone If we click get tracking ID

We're all done And it's basically saying that we need to add this bit of code to our website But of course, we've got a plugin that's already installed on the site that makes it really easy I'll just go back to the site, go back to the dashboard You remember we've got that annoying message that won't go away across the top of our dashboard, so we'll give it a click now and get it all set up

This thing here So then we just need to click on this big button to authenticate with Google Select your Google account, allow this stuff to whatever Doesn't look too scary, so let's go with that Then need to pick your profile, if you've only got the one, it'll just be the first one that comes up and see, I've got loads of analytics accounts so I'm just gonna type it in like that

And complete authentication And that's all done So it says that we're using UA-409244-28, which is the same as that tracking ID there, so that's all good And then you don't really need to adjust any more options in here, you can just, you can if you'd like, go into tracking, so you can set whether to ignore certain user roles, which is kind of handy 'Cause you don't wanna kind of track yourself, otherwise you're gonna skew all the data

So if you're logged in as an admin or an editor, you won't be tracked It's got events tracking and you can go through this if you like and adjust the settings, but generally, as it comes, it'll be fine and it will track all your visitors and everything like that So that's Google Analytics all set up Let's get on to the next step (jazzy music) Okay, so now we're gonna instal Yoast SEO and then we're gonna submit a sitemap to Google webmaster console, so that Google knows all about our website and we get some feedback in terms of how well we're being indexed by Google and how we're ranking and loads of other cool information

Before I do that, I'm just gonna get rid of this annoying message, you can do that by clicking dismiss In fact, you could probably turn shipping off if you want, because we're not using any shipping, because we're using WooZone Which of course is gonna redirect all of our traffic to Amazon So to disable that shipping, just come into WooCommerce and then go to settings And then go to shipping

Then in the general settings, if we just scroll down, and go to the shipping locations, we can just go disable shipping and shipping calculations Save changes, that'll get rid of that annoying message I hate annoying messages, can you tell? But anyway, so back to the task in hand, let's set up our Yoast SEO plugin It's very easy to do You just need to go to plugins, and then add new, then up here in the keyword box, type in Yoast, like that, Yoast SEO

Then click instal now Once installed, click activate And there we go, now we've got a brand new set of options down here called SEO, so let's go and take a look in there You're gonna click on the general section So here are our Yoast SEO settings

It mentions there if we've got any problems, it says that we still have the default WordPress tagline, so we should probably fix that And let's give that a click and fix it And then we'll get our XML sitemap all configured So if we go into site identity, it's this tagline here (typing) Just change it to something catchy like that

Oh and the other thing that we should probably do while we're in here is set a favicon Or a site icon as they now call it So at the moment, we've got this little HostGator icon Which is not what I want I think we need a little dog, so what I need to do is create an image that's 512×512 pixels, I think I'll just have that little dog

So gimme two seconds and I'll do that in Photoshop Okay, and just like that, I have created one in Photoshop So let's find it on my computer Upload files, (clicking) And here, there it is There's the dog

So select And do I wanna do some cropping (clicking) I guess so, I thought it was the right size That's how it's gonna look in the browser tab, doesn't that look lovely That's how it's gonna look on a phone if someone saves it as an app

I'll just crop like that Perfect, and then we can see up there, we've now got a lovely little doggie Okay, so let's click publish That's that all fixed, let's get back into the SEO settings Right, so no problems, perfect

Let's just go into features and check that everything is switched on, which it is You're gonna want all this stuff, probably, so leave it as it is We don't need to go to webmaster tools right now, let's go into search appearance What we wanna do is adjust the types of content that are going to appear in Google, because we don't want everything to appear in Google So let's go into content types

So show posts in search results, yes Date in snippet preview, I'm gonna leave that hidden You can leave this title template as it is, that's generally fine It'll basically take the title of the post and the site name and add a separator, which is all fine You can manually adjust the titles and I'll show you how to do that in a second

The page title is one of the most important things when it comes to SEO The words in the page title are what Google uses to work out what the page is about We'll want the Yoast SEO meta box and pages, yes That's fine leave that Products, yes

Now we're into the archive, product archives, yep that's fine I'm just gonna save changes on that Let's go into media We'll leave that as it is Taxonomies, yeah we want the categories, don't want tags, I don't want format, product categories, yes, that'd be good

Product tags, no Product shipping classes, no Product brand, nope Style, no, size, no, binding, no These are all kind of attributes and stuff that have come in with the Amazon products

And yeah, we don't need all this in Google, it's just too much So now I'm just gonna turn off all of these, no No, nope, nope I think there's quite a few (clicking) Maybe just speed up time, but basically I'm just gonna turn all these off

Okay we're at the bottom, I'm gonna leave category URLs as keep And click save changes Okay, let's check archives, Author archives Disabled, date archives, disabled That's fine

(clicks) And I think that's basically all the settings that we need to adjust within Yoast Okay, so now if we go back into general Then features, then scroll down, where we've got XML sitemaps, we click on the little question mark And click on this link here to see our XML sitemap which is just basically a list of everything we've got in the site, so we've got different sitemaps for the different types of content The posts, the page, the products, the categories, the product categories

And then if you have a look in here, there's all my content So now we need to submit this to Google webmaster console So let me just open a new tab I'm gonna do a search for Google webmaster console If I can type

There we go, it's wwwgooglecom/webmasters And sign in with your Google account Now I've already got loads of sites already in here

I'm gonna add a new one by clicking add a property And then put the address in (typing) click add We now need to kind of authenticate and authorise ourselves with the site, so that Google knows that we own the site and it's our site There's an easy way to do this, because we've already got Google Analytics set up, so if you haven't set up your Google Analytics, you need to do that first

Because we can use it to verify ourselves So if we go to alternate methods Select Google Analytics, click verify And then we're all done Let's click continue

So in here, we'll get some data, it'll take a little while for it to come in it'll tell us if we've got any crawl errors, and some search analytic data so we can see how well we're ranking But to submit our sitemap, all you need to do is go into crawl, and then go to sitemaps Then go to add/test sitemap And we need to type the address in, I'll copy and paste it It's this one here, it's generally sitemap_index

xml Like that, click submit Refresh the page And that's gonna take a few moments to be indexed by Google For Google to read it all and know exactly what pages and posts we've got on our site

So that's basically it, in terms of submitting the sitemap So one last thing, let me just show you how Yoast SEO works There are plenty of videos on the channel all around Yoast SEO, so do check them out if you want a bit more detail on how to optimise stuff Let me just close all these things down So now if we go to a post, or a product, or even a page, We've got some new options

So let's take a look at this one So now when I'm editing a post, or a product, or a page, if we scroll down, right down past the content, there we go We've got this Yoast SEO box and it gives us loads of information about how well we've optimised this page or post for the search engines So the first tab, you've got some readability tips It says you maybe need some more subheadings, some stuff about transition words

And the rest is all okay So if you'd like, you can try and get this green by fixing these problems The next tab allows you to optimise around a particular focused keyword, so for example, on this one we might wanna go for night time dog walking Then once you've entered that keyword, you get a score And mine's gone green, which is good

And tells you how well the article is optimised around this keyword, so There are a few issues, the focus keyword doesn't appear in the first paragraph of the copy So you could then come back up and fix that problem by just add an extra line like, here's our guide on everything you need to know about, and I'm just gonna paste night time dog walking Got the keyword in the first paragraph Then scroll down, see if we've fixed that, yeah

Says the keyword density is a bit low, we should probably add it a few more times And meta description, no meta description, sorry, has been specified, which is this bit here Which appears on Google, so it's sometimes worth adjusting it just to make it a bit catchier Find out everything you need to know about, including top tips and best products to keep you safe Let's go your dog as well, you and your dog safe while walking at night

Well, I've gone a little bit long, but I'm not worried, that's fine So there's a few other kind of improvements Now don't get too obsessed with this You could spend hours trying to get everything 100% perfect, if you're green, then you're generally good And you can do exactly the same with products as well, you can go in and edit products, set a keyword, and try and optimise them if you'd like

Generally Yoast will optimise them anyway, because we set a template when it comes to page titles and things like that, so you don't need to go through every single product and try and optimise it But if you've got a few products that you do want to promote and want to rank well, then it might be worth just having a look at them and seeing if they need any tweaks, or maybe they need a bit more copy, that kind of thing Anyway, let's wrap this up Let's take a look at the site for one last time Here's our site
