Feedback or Comments (Get it Right or Not)

Last Update: February 17, 2018

Why is it when you ask for feedback you get comments or vice-versa?

Feedback is the design of your website, how it is laid out, how the images fit the content, whether there is enough content, or whether the ads fit the content.

Comment is on the content if it is good or a beneficial or can be used or useful or helpful, or needed for someone or purpose.


Has this ever happened to you?

Thank you for this post. It caused me to reflect. I think both feedback and comments have value if they provide constructive remarks or critiques. I want my website to be both informative & inviting. I welcome any valuable information for my website.

Thanks for this post, frex. I found it very helpful, as I am still fairly new and haven't done much in this line. There's still so much I don't know, or don't remember from earlier training.

I didn't realize that there was a difference when I wrote the 2 reviews I did. I didn't know I was supposed to look for what the person was asking for when I wrote my first one.

Perhaps there are others who have had similar experiences, and that might be part of the reason that you are getting one when you are requesting the other.

I'm glad to know there is training on the differences out there. Will have to check into it before I write my next review. Right now I'm busy writing my content for my website and haven't been working on this area. Appreciate the info. Carol

Your welcome Carol, I've been through this before and thought I would write something about it. In some of our courses it ask for feedback and on others it ask for comments as you know. when you wait for feedback or comments and get the opposite it kind of a downer. So I would like to let people know that there is a difference.

It was thoughtful of you to share that info with us newbies. I still feel like one sometimes even though I've been around for 3 months. There is so much to learn! Carol

Yep, been there done that. All comments are welcome and although they seem to differ, I take it in stride and try to reflect on what the readers message is trying to communicate.But then again, I am not everyone. Great question.

Yes this has happened to me on many occasions. Unfortunately it is a common occurrence even though there has been many members that have posted training on feed back versus comments.

When I first started I was guilty of it myself until someone brought it to my attention. Now I try to keep them separated.

Same here but thanks to this awesome community, I am able to differentiate between the 2. We all learn new things as we progress here and that is why this is the best platform for learning.

I understand how they can be different. I try to consider them one in the same honestly. I look for the compliment and or the critic in anything being said about my site.

I sometimes fall into that situation when I'm reading a site, but have to remind my self of what they are looking for. If not they will look somewhere else. It's hard not to tell them what there site needs.
