OVERVIEW OF SITE RUBIX WEBSITE BUILDER
Within Wealthy Affiliate, the real ‘meat’ is the actual website builder. This is where you create your own fantastic looking website using WordPress for either the free website domain (yoursite.siterubix.com) or your own domain (mydomain.com), from which you can choose from many themes. The theme you select is vital, it must be visually appealing to your visitor, and also must be relevant to your particular niche. It’s important to note however that Free Members can only build a website using the .siterubix.com domain, whereas Premium Members can add their own purchased domain name eg. mywebsite.com.
Site Manager is the probably the most important section, because it is in here that you will build, edit, customise and publish your website. You can even get run down of the health of your website and how it’s performing.
The Site Domains section enables you to search for, purchase and add a domain right under one roof. There is no need for external hosting for example HostGater, because you can now host your own website right here in Wealthy Affiliate. If you have a domain in mind, you can search for it, if it’s available purchase it and then add it to your site manager. You can also manage the expiration / auto renewal of your domain, and even add a sub-domain.
Site Feedback is a great feature within Wealthy Affiliate. Proving you have sufficient credits (which can be earned by simply offering feedback on other peoples sites), you can request feedback from another Wealthy Affiliate member. This is fantastic as you get other peoples views and thoughts on your site and offer ways in which you can maybe improve your site, such as adding more images, layout, selecting the right keywords and more.
To offer and provide feedback on another members site is one of the many ways you can receive credit here is Wealthy Affiliate, credit which can be user to request feedback on your site. When you offer feedback, you will see a list of Website’s that members have requested feedback for.
Providing site comments is basically a way in which you can comment on another member’s post or page, and vise versa. On every page and post, there is usually a ‘Leave a comment’ feature, in which a visitor can leave a comment. This is great as this can be good advice that is provided, and it is important to know that site comments from other people is also ranked in google, which is great for SEO.
The technical support within Wealthy Affiliate is brilliant. If you have any issues with your site, for example if your website does not load or if you get any errors etc, then Site Support is the place to ask for help. It is the Developers and Technical Team from Wealthy Affiliate who provide assistance to any issues that you may have. There is always a quick, efficient response from the support team. I myself have had various issues over my time here as a Wealthy Affiliate Member, and the folk from Site Support are very professional is the assistance they provide.

To access site email is via Web Mail with WA, but you can also add your email account to your mobile device, such as a mobile phone or Tablet. Owning your own domain email address gives you an identity, adding that professional touch to your business.

These are all big benefits of premium membership with Wealthy Affiliate and will drastically increase the site trust with Google and also your visitors.
The support here in Wealthy Affiliate is second to none. Not only do you get excellent, prompt support from WA themselves, but also support in abundance from the community – other WA members.
