The new Site Manager is Cool! Here's my Recommendation, Kyle and Carson

Last Update: November 12, 2014

I like the new WA site manager. Both design and functionality. But I recommend one more thing.

If you click on the Site health button, quite a few metrics will be shown to you. All of them for 0% to 100 %, telling you what is already good, and what needs to be improved.

The percentage sign gives you a fast impression in both, number and color and I like it very much.

Next to it there is a text telling you what you should do.

Right now all these texts are static, whatever the percentage. Whether you have 0% , 50% or 100% you still get the same text.

I think it should be pretty easy to offer some more options. I've done computer programming in the past (not much but still) and I find it not really difficult do to that.

Because if your platform already collects data from that website and finds that, let's say comments metrics is worth 40% then it would be way more helpful if the text says why my website was given 40% with that particular metrics.

The easiest way would be to offer different feedback for 0%, 20%, 50% 70%, 100% something like that.

Or as you wrote in the Give feedback section - be thorough with your feedback.

I think this update is already good and as I said, I like it. But if you can make the site health feedback also more thorough, it would be even better. Because right now it's only the percentage that gives me feedback. Not the text.

Just my 2 cents.

I spent a little while checking out the new features as well. I like having the new tools available but will still rely on Google Analytics for the detailed statistics. I need to learn more about the Health feature.
