Wealthy Affiliate Reviews & Complaints – The bottom line!

Please share this post!

If you search the web, you’re sure to see a whole bunch of reviews of the Wealthy Affiliate program. That’s a lot of searching, so I thought, as your Internet Marketing Coach, that I would take the guesswork out of it for you and put the reviews neatly in one place.

In this article, I’m going to scour the web for Wealthy Affiliate Reviews, Complaints and everything in between! Let’s see what comes up with some searching and uncover what everyone is saying about the Wealthy Affiliate program!

Search No. 1 – Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?

Let’s go into each of the results and see what we find!

The author immediately starts talking about the benefits of Wealthy Affiliate. The entire article talks about each of the benefits in great detail.

Inside the article, the author also goes over the Wealthy Affiliate pricing and how it works. Then they include a lengthy chart showing a comparison between Wealthy Affiliate’s hosting and a few other companies’ services. (I didn’t include the whole chart but the top couple of rows for illustration):


Ok, this one is clearly just an ad to get people to click on their opportunity because there isn’t one thing about Wealthy Affiliate inside this article. It is a sales pitch for people to get some kind of ebook or something!  This is not a legitimate review but a sales pitch for something using the Wealthy Affiliate name as a keyword:

The rest of the entire article was just like this, some kind of disclaimer or something about how this program is going to make you a lot of money but they don’t promise to make you a lot of money, etc:

The author of this post starts off trying to intrigue you to stay on the page and read more. He gives a vague answer to get you to continue reading:

So, let’s see what else he has to say:

He is using the “scam” aspect throughout the article to say it “seems” like a scam because Wealthy Affiliate does train you to promote their platform.

However, he does go on to explain that they teach you to promote any program or product that you want to. Affiliate marketing is about finding a niche (subject or product) that interests you, something you love, and then writing articles about it and providing products to help people meet their needs within your niche.

This author teases you a little in the beginning, but about 1/4 of the way down on the page reveals his findings. He states that Wealthy Affiliate is indeed a legitimate program offering a valuable service:

The author writes a lengthy article going over all the attributes of the Wealthy Affiliate program, and he gets into one of my favorite parts, which is the community and support inside Wealthy Affiliate:


Search No. 2 – How is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?

Next, I did a google search for “how is wealthy affiliate a scam.”  Of course the top 5 results are people who paid to have their blog posts show up on top, like in my last example, so rather than go through those again (many duplicate from above), I went down to the organic search results as follows:


Let’s go through these and see what we find:

The first result is the same article we looked at above.

This author gave a positive review as you can see in the description above.


This guy did a “live” training on the sign-up process for Wealthy Affiliate, but he didn’t actually follow the program at all. I watched the video, and he just kind of signed up and jumped around the site trying to create a website and ignoring the entire process Wealthy Affiliate lays out for each new member.

The program for Wealthy Affiliate is very specific with step-by-step training, and I do go into it exactly on this website here if you want to see the actual process. You can start with this article here which will show you a video of me signing up, and also the next article gives a tutorial on the sign-up process as well.




This is another video by a guy who calls himself “Benji’s Dad.” I’ve seen a lot of training videos by him online, and so I’m just going to screen capture his conclusion here. Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam. He goes into details in the video about the program.

This is, again, the article I already went over up above (big red box), so you can look at the results there, which were that he found the program was “Legit and Recommended.”


This author has a lot of bells and whistles on his site with a survey and links to get his free ebook, etc., but toward the bottom of the page, he finally writes this, kind of, conclusion:


This article gives a description of how the program works, and then about halfway down the page, the author states this:

This site is devoted to educational opportunities along with financial aid information. Here is what he concludes at the bottom of his informational article on Wealthy Affiliate:
