Details of the 6 Wealthy Affiliate icons at the top of the dashboard

When you login to Wealthy Affiliate, you will come to the activity dashboard.

At its extreme top you will find six icons in the forms of a pencil, bell, and envelope. Also W, $, and reclining airplane with 300, all within circles.

Each of the icons contain important pieces of information that we are going to look at.

We will go from left to right, seeing first what is behind the pencil icon, then the W inside a circle. After which we will look at the $ inside a circle, the reclining airplane with 300 written inside a circle, the bell, and the envelope.

Why are we showing you these things?

People have been asking if Wealthy Affiliate is a good site.

This is a sort of an answer to that question.

So without further ado, let’s see the first icon.


When you click on the pencil icon, the window below appears:

Let’s look at the first of the sub-domains under the pencil icon.

Blog at WA

This is where you can compose a new blog post at Wealthy Affiliate. (Note that this blog is different from your personal domain blog like this one you’re reading).

Wealthy Affiliate blog posts rank effectively in record time in Google. The blog URLs contain your affiliate links. This is why it is in your interest to blog on the platform. For, when someone clicks on the link and signs up at Wealthy Affiliate, you receive credit for it.

Create training

Here one can create three types of resources: tutorial, video, or course.

Since these materials contribute towards the overall training of Wealthy Affiliate members, the company pays the creators every month for its use.

Write an article

This is where all Wealthy Affiliate members are encouraged to write and publish their personal domain blog posts like this one you’re reading.

I only started using this platform this year when the Super Affiliate Challenge course drew my attention to it. The first time, I didn’t like it so much. I thought my WordPress editor was better and made me write faster.

But since I needed the platform’s optimized images so that visuals no longer slow down my site, I continued to use it. Soon I found it user-friendly.

Now, nothing will let me go back to my WordPress editor again.

Another thing you can also do here is check your writing stats.

A third thing you can do inside SiteContent is to set up writing templates to quicken your content creation.

Build a website

You decide which kind of website you want to build.

This is where you begin to build your website.

Find a domain

This is where you register your domain, transfer one from elsewhere to Wealthy Affiliate, or point one here.

My domain is hosted at Namecheap so I have pointed it to Wealthy Affiliate. In future I will transfer it here since Wealthy Affiliate offers a better domain experience.


Now, we go to the W sign inside the circle icon.

This is where you have your credit dashboard.

You can also see your cash credit history


Now, the $ sign inside the circle.

Clicking on it reveals the screenshot image below.

Program details

The first one is called program details.

The program details contain a certain number of information.

First, it tells you how many sales you are left with to be invited to the annual 4-day fully-paid Las Vegas Conference.

The required number of sales is 300.

Then you can learn about the revenue you earn by referring people to Wealthy Affiliate.

Next, is the Affiliate Bootcamp training details.

The screenshot above shows details of 6 of the 7 course material. The seventh is below

Finally, for the program details, you find how much you can potentially earn as an affiliate of the Wealthy Affiliate program.


There are two:

WA Wealthy Affiliate tasks

My stats

The stats cover overview and detailed stats.

Let’s see the details in the screenshot above.

The overview shows your next paycheck.

The detailed stats is a complex mix of graphs which show your earnings, your next paycheck, detailed stats in graphical form and in text of clicks (raw, unique and content).

Others are new sales, recurring sales, and resubscription sales. You can also find total referrals, website homepage referrals, custom create account referrals, custom website homepage referrals, referral credits and revenue.

You can even choose categories to compare, your revenue, your referral entrance details, and your commission payment settings.

These are details somewhat personal to show here. That’s why you don’t see them.


This shows details of my referrals such as picture or avartar, name, date of joining, status (free starter member or premium), etc. (Sorry, too sensitive to be made public.)


This is where you see the two co-founders’ messages to my referrals. Mine also.


This details the Affiliate Bootcamp course which helps to promote the affiliate program.

Under this you can see your affiliate links, comparison tables (by which you can compare Wealthy Affiliate to other similar programs based on certain features).

There is also Site Rubix Website Plugin through which you can place a tracking code on your website. People can see it and choose a SiteRubix domain to build their free website.

Finally, you have PPC Conversion Tracking where you can manage conversion tracking for Pay-per click networks Bing, Facebook and Google Adwords.

This helps you optimize your Internet marketing campaigns by tracking how much traffic you are sending to your merchant pages, which links are effective (and which aren’t), and which keywords people are using to come to your page.


This is where you can find all types and sizes of Wealthy Affiliate banners for your promotion.

This is the smallest:

And everything in between until you come to the biggest:


This screenshot shows the number of sales left to be invited to the 4-day fully paid Las Vegas conference.

300 is the score. And, as you see, I’m far from it!


Here are comments from members looking for actions from other members.

I profited after taking the above screenshot to offer comments on three websites.

They will also reciprocate.

Together we get comments on our blog posts.


Private message

Here are my private messages which I can’t show here.

  1. Thank you for this very thorough explanation. I signed up for Wealthy Affiliate a while ago, and I am very happy with the site, training, and the community. This article is certainly very useful for any newbies. It sort of gives a tour of the Wealthy Site site, which is always a good thing when you first sign up.

    • Hi Christine,

      I’m thrilled anytime somebody appreciates my articles. It’s hard to find somebody who signed up for Wealthy Affiliate, did the training and did not get very happy with the site, training, and the community. You’re right, this article is certainly very useful for newbies although it can also help seasoned marketers as well. With that tour of the Wealthy Site site, peple eager to sign up know what to expect.

      Thank you again for your comment.


  2. Hi Akoli,

    I really enjoyed reading your article on affordable affiliate marketing training. I found that it was really comprehensive and covered everything I want to know.

    I have been looking at other affiliate programmes and wonder if in your opinion wealthy affiliate is the best or if there is an alternative you can recommend? Thanks in advance, Andrew

    • Hi Andrew,

      I thank you for really enjoying reading my article on affordable
      affiliate marketing training. Besides, I’m thrilled that found it very comprehensive . I really wanted my readers to learn everything they wanted about Wealthy Affiliate and that’s what you found, then I can only say “hallelujah!”

      affiliate is the best affiliate marketing program for me. But it is not the only one out there. There are other alternatives like:

      Income School’s Project 24
      Authority Hacker’s The Authority Site System
      Greg Jeffries’s SEO Affiliate DominationAffiloramaSuper Affiliate System (Internet Jetset)Chris Farrell MembershipCB Passive Income 5.0Solo Build It

      Thanks for your visit and comments.


  3. Great resource article for people who are new to WA since things can be a little overwhelming at first. I’ve only been with WA for a little over a month and I find this post valuable still. I am sure that there are many other WA members who could use this information for themselves or to help explain things to other members.

    • Hi Geri,

      I knew people will find this article as a great resource article for people who are new to Wealthy Affiliate because I had done a lot of reserach on the site for this.

      It’s true, things can be a little overwhelming when someone visits WA at first. This is because the site has a lot of information. Fortunately the site is clean and everything well-ordered, so it is somewhat easy to find one’s way around.

      Since you’ve only been with WA for a little over a month, you’ll find that there’s some information overload. This is whyI did this post to break things down for people.

      So, don’t hesiate to share this with any other WA members, especially people that you sponsor who could use this information for themselves or to help explain things to other people.

  4. I think these are some of the most inportant things overlooked when I first came to wealthy affiliate. I only knew about the affiliates thread, notifications, messages and never knew about the W things and yet it is what I must use to earn money to pay for my monthly fee now if I had known about it before I lost access to wealthy affiliate in Dec 2019 I would have not have lost all my products. I think WA is a great platform and all those icons are helpful in so many ways and now I’m considering offering feedback to earn cash credits.

    • Hi Donny,

      Yes, many recruits overlook some of the most inportant things when they first come to wealthy affiliate. I did too, that’swhy I want to help people with them.

      It’s not surprising to me that you only knew about the affiliates thread, notifications, messages and never knew anything about the W thing. Andas you rightly observed, it is what in use to earn money to pay for one’s monthly fee if one knew about it before. It’s a pity lack of this knowledge has made you lose access to wealthy affiliate in Dec 2019 (?) But we’re not yet in December!

      Sure WA is a great platform and all those icons are there to help people easily navigate the site.

      Okay, go ahead and offer feedback to earn cash credits. There was a blog post which said that constantly offering site feedback and comments can help one pay one’s yearly membership.


  5. Recently joined the Wealthy Affiliate program and it’s nothing like what I’ve experienced before with internet marketing before. I love the engagements as it is a very active online community, especially through the live chat and comment areas.

    I do not regret a cent in joining it, it could be a bit overwhelming as it is a very multi functional learning portal. With time though you get to familiarize with everything. Bravo for putting this out there.

    • Hi Steve,

      You’ve recently joined the Wealthy Affiliate program? Congrats! I’m not surprised that you find that it’s nothing like
      what you’ve experienced before with internet marketing. That has been the experience of many members. The engagements are very high, making WA the most active online community. Ask a question, and the next minute you get a flood of responses.

      I haven’t yet met anybody who regretted joining
      it. You find it a bit overwhelming notforcibly because it is a very multi functional
      learning portal but because you’re new to it. It’s like arriving in a new city. You’ll find it complicated while those who have been living there all the time have it in the palm of their hands.

      Yes, you soon get familiar with
      everything at the site. But you have to work to know it.

      Thanks for encouraging me for putting this out there.
