Are you Making This Common Mistake with Site Comments?

None of us like having our comments rejected when we use Site Comments (and we don’t like rejecting others’ comments left for our articles either, right?), so how can we go about leaving great comments that will be accepted every time?

It’s all about commenting from the perspective of the audience the author is targeting.

No need to try to summarize the whole article.
No need to place the title of the article in your comment.
No need to go over the top thanking the author for the well written post…

The sure fire way to get your comments approved every time is to simply choose a single point made in the post and either ask a question or make a comment about it from the perspective of that target audience.

You’ll be left with a very organic, natural, and authentic sounding comment that will be accepted every time!


Remember, too, that Site Comments and Site Feedback are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS and require a different approach.


In Site Comments you're not looking to give your opinion on how their article looks, or the aesthetics of the website, or how they worded their content. You're looking to leave a comment based on the content itself as if you were someone who made a google search and have now landed on their content as the answer to your search.

Approach Site Comments with this mindset and you'll be approved every time!
Happy commenting!

Thank you,Eric. This sounds a lot easier than I was doing. The directions in site content suggest 200 words. I am mixing this process up with reviews, I think. Also, I was surprised to find the site comments went on the website in question publicly, which would be less formal, I guess. Perhaps a class on site comments would be helpful. Hint hint.

Did the ability to use a video on WA blogs come recently?

So 200 words would be a bit excessive, Site Comments asks for a minimum of 50 which is plenty for an authentic sounding comment.

And again, remember that the comments we’re making in the website aren’t opinions of how it looks or feedback on the aesthetics, they’re relevant comments to the topic in the article with the whole point of being public so as to trigger more comments from other readers. :)

Watching this vlog should be mandatory for every member that wants to give comments on others' blogs. It's spot on!!!

I've stopped using and asking for site comments for over a year now because most of the time, they are there for the $0.50 - Not to put themselves in the audience's shoes. A lot of copy and paste, so instead of wasting my time and money I just don't use it anymore.

Great perspective there, Eric!

I appreciate the kind words. Thank you!

Absolutely Eric! We have to acknowledge the work they need to put together an article. Try to avoid negative criticism, even if you are not particulary interested in the subject matter you are asked to comment.
Just pick up one point on what the article is all about, and offer a positive review.

Or if there was really something that needs to be fixed, offer a CONSTRUCTIVE comment to help the author of the article.

The key thing to remember is that we’re not there to offer an opinion of what’s good and what’s not. We’re there in the role of the target audience. So we pick a specific point made in the article and ask a question or make a statement about it. That’s exactly what the author is looking for. :)

Nice vlog Eric, agree 1000%.

Marc.

😎👍🏼💯

Well said! If someone has zero interest in topic, it’s better they not try comment.

Ps. I like the vlog. It takes your post to a new level.

Thank you! I like the vlogs too.
And we've all been there using Site Comments and you come up on a topic you have no connection with, but it isn't that hard to comment from the perspective of someone who does. Keep it simple, short and sweet and relevant, and you're always good to go!
