Don’t know about you but I have always been curious how to make money with the internet and during my search, the top option has always been internet affiliate marketing through a blogging website. However, creating a successful blogging website that makes money isn’t as simple as just creating a website and hoping traffic will just show up. In order to make a website that generates income, you need traffic and a good source of traffic is through proven SEO strategies. Let’s find out why I think Wealthy Affiliate is the best place on the internet to learn how to create a gaming website that generates income through Affiliate Marketing, a passion for gaming and the willingness to learn.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate is a unique service like no other that provides members with easy to comprehend training on online affiliate marketing and how to make a money blogging website. There is a large community of experienced affiliate marketers that are willing to help you every step of the way and share their experiences. Wealthy Affiliate lets you register a domain name with free privacy protection, Premium DNS and WordPress Website hosting. There is free and Premium membership to choose from. The service provides unlimited email accounts, plenty of tools such a Jaaxy a keyword research tool and the ability to get comments from the community which helps with website ranking. Wealthy Affiliate is hands down the best Affiliate marketing program on the internet and I am excited to explain why.

Wealthy Affiliate Website

The Wealthy Affiliate Website is where all the magic happens, it has been upgraded over the years and its current form puts all the resources an affiliate marketer would need right on your dashboard. From the Dashboard, you can access the training (which will dive into later), the website manager, live events calendar for upcoming training from highly experienced members, Jaaxy keyword research tool lite, and help center all from the left menu. On top of the website, you can access the content creation tool, credit dashboard, affiliate referral tools, Super Affiliate Conference Stats, notification, and messages. On the Dashboard, you can also see the latest training and blogs from other members that are within your network but we will dive into this further.

Main Navigation

As you can already see when you first sign-in you’re faced with Wealthy Affiliate dashboard which has plenty of options, the navigation is easier to use and it gives you everything you need to start learning how to make money with the internet through a gaming blog. Let’s take a closer look at the main menu on the left side of the page, this is the menu you will be using most and this is where the most important tools are.


The training menu contains all your basic training such as Getting started, Building your own Traffic Producing Website and what we are all here for “How to make money with a website“. In this menu, you will also find the Affiliate Bootcamp which if you have no niche in mind you can learn to promote wealthy affiliate but we are all here to learn how to make a money blogging website inspired by your gaming passion so this is something we can put on the back burner. You can also see your recent training activity and pick up where you left off. There is also the Training HQ and Classrooms which is an organized archive of training.

Websites Tab

In the website tab of the left navigation, you will find the site manager which will take you to your WordPress account and here is where all the magic happens. WordPress is where you create content and layout your website. The next section is Site builder and if your looking to start a new website / domain this is where it happens. Now the next section of the menu is pretty similar to Site builder and that is Site Domain. Site Domain is where you find, register and manage your blog’s domain. The next section is a tool in Wealthy Affiliate that I don’t use and that is Site Content. Site Content allows you to create all your site content within the Wealthy Affiliate website and the reason I don’t use this tool is simply because I do all this in WordPress.

The next couple of sections with the website tab are just as important as your site manager and your training. First, we have Site Comments and this is where you can earn comments for your website. When you first start you most likely will not be getting organic traffic from search engines so Wealthy Affiliate allows you to provide comments for comments. Similar to the Site Comments section we have the Site Feedback section where you will offer feedback on other Wealthy Affiliate’s websites and in return you will earn credits that you can use to get valuable feedback on your blog from other members. The last section is Site Support and this is where you can get domain related help with any technical difficulties you might be having with your blog.

The Site Comments is important to SEO (Traffic)… Google and other Search Engines use engagement and views of your blog (website) to determine your ranking in the Search Engine.

Live Events

This tab is where you will find different live training set in the calendar or a live training you might have sign-up for. Training is extremely important in affiliate marketing and it is one of Wealthy Affiliate‘s strong points.


This tab is vital to your gaming blog’s SEO and Traffic to your online affiliate marketing website. Within this tab, you will find your site ranking, your keyword list, Search Analysis, Alphabet Soup, Brainstorm HQ, Affiliate Programs, and Niche Keyword List. The most important section to highlight in this tab is my keyword list and keyword search. Keywords are terms viewers will search within the search engine such as “how to make a money blogging” and the search engine will use these keywords to direct viewers to your website. Wealthy Affiliate allows you to search for keywords within the website through Jaaxy Lite or you can head over to the Jaaxy Dashboard on the full Jaaxy Website.

To learn more about the research tab in the main menu of Wealthy Affiliate or Jaaxy one of the best keyword research tools on the internet head over to the Wealthy Affiliate website and connect with me or any of the other helpful community members by clicking here.

Live Chat and Help Center

The last two tabs of the main menu on Wealthy Affiliate is “Live Chat” and “Help Center”. Both these sections are used to seek support from the community and the Administration team of Wealthy Affiliate. You can get support for your website, WordPress or any other questions you might have.

Top Navigation

The top navigation is much simpler with a search bar, content creation, credits dashboard, affiliate tool, Wealthy Affiliate Vegas Super Affiliate Conference, notifications and message tabs.

Content Creation Tab

In the content creation tab you can write success blogs, create training and write articles you might find helpful to the community or just express your success or methods you found not to work. Here you can also find a quick way to the website builder and find a domain if you’re looking to start a new internet affiliate marketing website.

Credit Dashboard

Next is the Credit Dashboard and this is where you will find credits you have earned that can be used towards comments, feedback or starting a new domain. At the Credit Dashboard you can also purchase credits for purchasing comments or feedback and also see your affiliate money earned.

Affiliate Tools

There are plenty of Affiliate tools on the Wealthy Affiliate website to help you be successful with your online affiliate marketing gaming website but if you have decided you want to spread the word about Wealthy Affiliate to others there are a set of tools in the Affiliate Tools tab on the top menu. The three most important tools here are the “My Stats”, “My Referral” and “Links & Tracking”. The My Stats sections you will find reports for how many clicks your referral link as received over a certain time period and the revenue you have earned. My Referrals sections allows you to view all your referrals that you have invited to the Wealthy Affiliate community. The third important tool here is the Links and tracking. Links and tracking is where, well you get your referral links as well as reports for how well those links are performing.

WA LV Conference, Notifications and Messages

I just want to briefly explain these tabs but not go too far into because this is something you can dive further into when you join Wealthy Affiliate and take the very important training. WA Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference tab is where you can see your progress for “Achieving 300 Premium Referrals and earn an invitation to hang out with Kyle, Carson, and others on this all-paid private conference! At this conference, you will get to know Kyle and Carson a little close. The conference will also have bonus training material and allow you to learn from other successful Wealthy Affiliate members. The other two tabs Notifications and Messages are pretty self-explanatory.

Wealthy Affiliate Feed

The last section I want to take a look at on the Wealthy Affiliate Dashboard is the Feed which is pretty similar to most of your major Social Media platforms and this is where you will see blogs or training from the community that your networking with. Here you can find recent success stories, announcements of new members you can network with, training such as a ranking 1st place on Google in 15 hours and sometimes members within your network will blog about there inspiration success story.

Wealthy Affiliate is the Best Affiliate Marketing Training?

Training does just cater to learning how to start an affiliate website but also expands into other platforms such as Youtube which we all know to be a powerful viral video content website. Check this training out on “Promoting Your Youtube Videos” from MagiStudios!

In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate is the best source for learning “how to make a money blogging gaming website” but why do I feel that way and why do I speak so highly of it? As you may have seen above Wealth Affiliate is a large community of experience and like-minded individuals that want to see others succeed in the online affiliate marketing industry. There is a large archive of training on “how to make money with the internet” not just through online affiliate marketing website but also youtube, eBay and Amazon. There are plenty of inspiring success stories, a large set of tools such as Jaaxy Keyword tool to help you successfully create content, website and bring traffic to your gaming blog. There is a free and premium service but you will never be forced to join the paid service which means you can remain a free member for as long as you would like. My only question to you is “Are you ready to join the rest of us in the Wealthy Affiliate community and live life free?

    As a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate, I would like to endorse the platform. I think in any field, you need some kind of training to excel in it. That is why there are many special school out there to get us ready for the workforce, the same goes for affiliate marketing. I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate when I was doing my research on another high ticket seller platform. I didn’t want to get ripped off and stumbled upon this one blog and one of the reviews mentioned Wealthy Affiliate. For a free trial at WA, you get to have many access to the 1st training, 2 websites on site rubix and many more. WA won me over again when I signed up, they did not ask for my cc information (it is hard to find). I really enjoy the training and finally learned how to build my first website within a week. I wanted to learn more and thinking that yearly subscription was not that expensive so I signed up right away and the rest is history. I enjoy Jay’s live training, it is very up to date and you can just follow along what he is doing. If you missed the class you can always stream a replay. Sitecomments is also a great tool to have good quality reviews on your post and from that you get indexed faster. You can have any niche joining WA. If you want to play games and get paid for it, you can start a blog and write about the walkthrough, or the tips how to beat the boss. You can even have a YouTube channel to bring more traffic to you site. The opportunity is endless it is up to your creativity 🙂

    I have had interest in starting up an online business for a while now, but there isn’t much knowledge about how I could go about it. There are a number if sites who offer training out there and give you the service promised, but these trainings are not for beginners but those who have some level of knowledge about the online world. A lot have been heard about wealthy affiliate, and after being a member its been a really cool experience with lots to learn.

    • Salvatore Jenkins JrSalvatore Jenkins Jr

      It definitely has been a really cool experience and there is a wealth of knowledge.

  8. JealousLiJealousLi

    Thank you for sharing this theme about Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate has too many things to discover and explore with newcomers. Only familiar with it provides a series of tools to help you make money online better.
    Because I have no time, I joined WA for a few months to learn it. I like the Jaaxy tool it provides, which is very helpful for me to choose the keywords of the website and track the ranking of the website.

    • Salvatore Jenkins JrSalvatore Jenkins Jr

      There is plenty of useful tools on Wealthy Affiliate and Jaaxy Keyword research tool is one of them. Honestly, I could find the keywords myself but it would be a lot harder and take up far too much time. With Jaaxy it is as simple as searching a phrase or word in google and all the states for the phrase are presented to you!  There are plenty of video tutorials and written classrooms to help anyone learn the SEO trade. Wealthy Affiliate a one-stop Affiliate Marketing University!

  9. RodarrickRodarrick

    Blogging has become a wildly recognised means of making money online but then, not everyone makes money with blogging. It has to be well learnt and the approach to it should be well done in a reasonable manner with proper dedication and persistence with patience. I like the fact that you have pointed out a community where one could learn the process of getting started the right way with blogging and also the beat way to monetize it. I will check them out

    • Salvatore Jenkins JrSalvatore Jenkins Jr

      Yes, blogging is a great way to make money online but without the right attitude and commitment, someone trying to reach their goal of financial freedom will find it to be unattainable. I myself have found it hard in the past to juggle working long hours, home life, learning affiliate marketing and building my business. You just have to find it in yourself to keep pushing, putting time aside for taking advantage of the helpful community and knowledge at Wealthy Affiliate which will all pay off in the end. No matter what don’t quit, persistence is key!

    Thank you so much for the full explanation about WA group.

    And the me share with you my experience about this:

    I have been looking around and joining some free and paid courses about affiliate marketing and I found that most of them were not really helpful.

    It is not easy to understand how affiliate marketing does work until someone put you on the right road, and not only that but also to put and Eye on what you are doing and correct your finial steps if you miss it up, until you are confidant enough to walk with no fear.

    Now I’M enjoying what I’m doing in affiliate marketing, I’m still building up my website and I’m trying my best to give it enough time. and all of that because I found Wealth Affiliate family that are helping me with each step.

    Thanks again 

    • Salvatore Jenkins JrSalvatore Jenkins Jr

      Its hard to understand anything in life until someone lays it in front of you in great detail but it’s up to you to go seek it out. However, that is easier said than done so it takes people who have already taken that step to share and help others!

  13. HenryHenry

    Thehe, I simply wanted to create my very own website – That was my initial goal. That was my dream.

    Blogging is achievable with wealthy Affiliate and reaching the peak of success is just a matter of staying committed enough to achieving the best out of wealthy Affiliate. Like every other niche, gaming is a very lucrative niche and because we have a lot of gamers lately, getting the right attitude towards it would mean we can achieve success in all we do. But attitude is the key. We must have the right attitude to make the best out of the situation by really working immensely to get there’s. Taking the trainings and practising them.

    • Salvatore Jenkins JrSalvatore Jenkins Jr

      That is very true, Attitude is very important! I have been reading a lot of Robert Kiyosaki’s book and most of it is about reprogramming your brain to go from I ‘can’t to how can I. If you can change the way you think, question things that is where the learning process starts and success should soon follow. Odveriously it goes more into depth then that but that is the just I have gathered from his book…
