Now I get it.

Last Update: October 29, 2018

I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for almost a year now, and I thought I was doing well since it was so easy to write the articles. Everything seemed to come naturally for me. Then I asked Carson to look at my website and see what he thought.

After a day or so, Carson sent me a nice long review, and basically told me that I missed the mark, and what I had would never draw the traffic I wanted. I must admit, I was angry and just put my computer down for a few days to sulk.

Once I got through my pity party, I decided to read Carson’s review more optimistically. He explained that I was not helping my viewers like I thought I was, and I needed to add alot more direction and more links to more articles.

I did some research on web pages that successful people wrote, and I immediately understood what he was trying to tell me. I changed my page immediately and started seeing better results that day. I am still trying to improve it, then I may invite Carson to look at it again.

Here is my point… I had gotten so many generated comments, I thought I was doing great. I forgot that the people who were sending me my comments were all supposed to send good comments, not necessarily constructive ones.

Remember, there is a feedback forum under your website tab. This feedback is not like the comment, as it is much more constructive. Don’t make the same mistake that I did. If it wasn’t for Carson, I probably would have gone six months with no traffic before I discovered anything wrong.

I wish you all the best in you businesses and have an awesome WA day!

That must have really bummed you out...but on the bright side, at least you took it for what it was...constructive criticism. I requested feedback on my site and got exactly what I was looking for. No reason to be bummed out when I wanted someone to point out what was wrong. I want to fix it, like you did also. I have made the necessary changes. And still need to find a logo like was suggested I use. Once I do, I will add that also. It'll make it clearer what my site is about.

It's great that you fixed the errors or issues and now are producing traffic. Good for you. I wish you the best.
