SiteComments is LIVE - Changing Website Engagement FOREVER!

Last Update: July 27, 2015

We have been preluding something big for the last month or so and today we are happy to announce the official roll out of our latest and greatest SiteRubix offering…

SiteComments!

To this day, there has been no effective platform on the Internet for getting high quality, engaging dialogue on your website. There is nothing elegant about trying to "get comments", and more often than not, people totally miss out on comments because they feel as though it is too tough to get quality dialogue and engagement on their site.

Comments add value to your website, comments create trust, comments breed MORE comments, comments lead to more and longer lasting rankings in search engines, and comments lead to success.

Today we are completely changing the way in which you get comments...and by being a Premium member here at WA, you are going to be able to propel your website engagement (and business) like never before.

Finally, a Platform for Comment Acquisition!


There has never been a more integrated and powerful platform for getting quality, targeted, and educated comments on your website.

As you may be starting to understand as you build out your websites, the comments you get on your site play a big role in your website’s overall success. This means better SEO, better rankings, more traffic, more trust and better conversions.

SiteComments offers you a complete platform to manage your website engagement, to track the progress of your comments, and to build a comment profile that will push your site ahead of the competition. It has single handedly changed the way in which we generate and manage comments on our website.

The first system in the world to accomplish this and it is now available for all Premium members to use!

You Offer Comments, You Get Comments...


Within the system you are going to “earn” comment credits in the exact same way as the comment platform worked over at the give and take thread.

You give 2 comments, you get 1 comment in return. There are no limits on this, so regardless of how many comments you want to get, you can earn these.

If you want 50 comments on your website, you can comment on 100 other peoples' websites and earn these. It is fun, easy to use and absolutely the most powerful system ever created for generating REAL quality on your website. Real engagement and relevant, intelligent dialogue.

As you earn SiteComments credits, you can use them as you wish.

This is going to lead to better rankings and if you spend a few minutes each day using this system you are going to see the benefits of your hard work and in turn be helping 100’s and possibly 1,000’s of fellow WA’ers in return on their sites.

We have put a lot of concerted thought into the design of the SiteComments platform, it is going to be your dream system for getting engagement.

We Filter By Interests, Quality Ensues


One of the main problems with asking others for comments on your site is the fact that they may have no knowledge or interest in the subject matter of your website.

For example, if you wanted a comment on your post about “astrophysics” and I have absolutely no knowledge on this subject matter, I shouldn’t be required to offer you a comment on this.

Because of this we have initiated an “Interests” aspect of the system.

You will add your “interests” to the system and your comment requests will be matched up with others in the system with knowledge or interest in that same subject.

This is going to lead to much higher quality, more engaging comments on your website...which in turn will add value to your website.

All Content is UNIQUE, Guaranteed!


Comments on your site are an important aspect of SEO. The problem that currently exists is that many people are getting comments that are actually “duplicate” content, they are not unique and this can adversely impact rankings.

As it stands now, every single comment that you get submitted to your website could be copied from somewhere else on the Internet, your competition could in essence take down your rankings by tricking you to publish their duplicate comments (that seem legit).

You won’t run into this with SiteComments as we validate that each and every comment within the system is 100% unique. The system will not allow comments that are duplicate.

Every single comment you get within the SiteComments system is going to be 100% unique! Unique content is a beautiful thing for website rankings.

All Comments Will Be Personal


We have taken things another step further. There is nothing worse than having a website full of comments from “faceless” authors. It is going to be a requirement for every comment that you get on your website to have an associated image attached, this is known as a gravatar.

Here is exactly what I mean by this:

No more empty dialogue taking place on your site. With the reqiured gravatar aspect of the system, each and every comment that goes to your site is going to appear like a real, human conversation. Pictures are meaningful and are going to add a lot of credibility to your website engagement.

And when you comment, you can have many different gravatar profiles set-up and it is simple to create many different ones. The requirement is that each profile has a unique email address.

This is the ultimate multi-profile management platform.

Ultimate Comment Control and Distribution


There is one thing that we have really focused on with this platform: control.

Within the SiteComments platform you have the ability to control many different aspects of your comment requests. This includes:

  • The website in which the comments go
  • The page/posts in which the comments go
  • How many comments you want
  • Interests the person that offers you a comment
  • Time distribution of comments

This control allows you to distribute comment jobs in a way that benefits your websites most. Ideally you want to be getting comments on posts that have very few comments, posts that have not been active in some time, and posts that are brand new.

This is very easy to do with the control and flexibility that that the SiteComments platform offers. You are in the driver’s seat. You get comments when you want, how you want, and where you want.


It Goes Directly to YOUR SITE! Easy Peasy!


No more copying and pasting or even logging into your website to manage your comments. With the SiteComment system, when you Approve or Approve & Reply to your comments.

Upon doing this, the comment will instantly go to your website and be live. You can then check the comment directly if you want to see it.

Another powerful feature is that you can also Reply to any comments you get within the SiteComments system right then and there. Ideally you want to reply to every comment that you get and this platform facilitates that AND also offers you the ability to add links within your replies.

No more logging into Wordpress to manage your comments from fellow WA members, this can now be done right from the SiteComments platform.

When You Get Comments, You Will Know!


How do you know when you get a new comment on your site? It’s easy. You will not only get an email from the system letting you know that you have received a comment, but you will also see a notification counter show up within the SiteRubix menu.

This is going to allow for efficient use of the SiteComment platform and minimize the turnaround time between getting a comment and actually replying and publishing it on your website.

A Long Term, Sustainable Solution


One thing will always remain a constant with every new update, innovation, or platform that we incorporate here at Wealthy Affiliate, YOUR SUCCESS.

The SiteComments platform has never been done before in the website industry and to date, is the most effective and efficient way to incubate quality comments on your website.

Better Engagement = Better Rankings

We truly hope you enjoy this entirely new aspect of WA. The importance of comments is long lasting. It is definitely not going anywhere, and we are on the bleeding edge of the technology to simplify and improve the process in which we attain comments on our site.

To access the SiteComments platform, you will find it within the SiteRubix menu under "SiteComments". Here is the direct link to it.

I have also created a Walkthrough for this platform that will walk you through the entire process of how to use it, the benefits, and how to maximize your experience within SiteComments.

The more I use this system the more I like it. I got into a bit of a panic when I received more responses then I'd asked for because I imagined "comment debt" whereafter I busied myself earning some more credits! Haha, oh well. Maybe if two people respond at once it results in some freebies. Anyway, I have a bunch of credits at the ready for next time.

Something else I like about the system is that it's introducing me to a lot of other content creators, resulting in bookmarks and networking happening... very cool.

I used the comment system for the first time today and it's awesome. I remember a few months back we had to ask each other for comments and sometimes that system didn't work. The great thing about this new comment feature is that it's a formal system where everyone who comments has a Gravitar profile. So whoever goes to my website and checks the comments, they will see a live picture of the person that made the comment. This will truly bring more authority to our websites and visitor engagement. Thanks!

This is actually such an awesome idea! I can't wait to start using this feature. Does anyone know the best timing for generating comments for your website is? I mean if your site is pretty new and isn't yet ranking at all (not even sure it is indexed properly yet) and if there is only 6 odd pages of content/ posts. Would it be better to continue building the site and after you have a good amount of content and your site has been fully indexed etc and is more established, get comments then? Or is this something you should jump on right away? I mean the question that comes to my mind is would it seem strange to Google that your getting all of these comments from nowhere when your not even on page 5000 of Google yet? Just keen to use this feature, but at the same time I don't want to jump ahead of myself and cause my website any problems. So I guess specifically I am asking will getting comments on my blog too early damage my credibility in the eyes of Google, should I wait until my site has much more content and is getting ranked? Thanks for anyone helping me understand this :)

The more interaction on your website no matter how old is a positive signal to google crawlers and will help your ranking in the future. Keep on adding content and you will get there.

When you create your gravatar account, you then have to attach an avatar to an email. You can use as many different emails as you like.
Reply

If you're talking about an image as the avatar I think i've done that.

I just check and it seemed I didn't do that so I did add an image to the email.

Let me " test " this.

Yes. It was happening to me and I was wondering how. I came up with a theory.
Someone goes to read your content. They have not written a comment, so it's still available for others to click on. If you ask for comments during a time where there are a lot of people looking to comment, they all click before any of the others finish.
Does this make sense? It helps me sleep at night, lol.

PrfyVdlxWA Premium
Yes. That happened to me. Which is why I said the SiteComments scheme is awesome. You get more than what you give. Sometimes, even days after I have done my commenting give-and-get routine, I still get comments. Now that is awesome!

To start comparing, I go out there, show what I have to fellow website owners and authors, and what is lacking from their sites? Comments! They have contents,

That's a big impact to getting your website ranked, even when your content ain't moving much anymore (which I don't encourage, but it would happen eventually when you get tied up with something else).

Comments will liven up your website's activity. So make it your goal to be giving and getting comments. I have also learned a lot from this experience, Reading on articles not on my niche, interacting with different people and getting to know them - the benefits extends far beyond just the comments themselves.

Well, that should be encouragement enough for all who aren't into SiteComments yet.

Learn and enjoy!

Um, I had a steeeep learning curve with sitecomments. Now I will never say something unless I am really moved and impressed by the material itself for reasons which mean something to ME. No standard formula allowed. No more constructive criticism about widgets and plugins.and pictures and headings. I got scalped for that by many people. Meanwhile everyone is saying beautiful things about my blogs and pages.
Also most of the time I can write a comment and press enter and mostly nothing happens and that is on sites which have ASKED for feedback. What might be going on?
Reply
timsproducts Premium
Hello

Site Comments are to write engaging comments about the content of the site, not the site structure widgets etc. It is intended to help the site own get more content on their site by engaging in a to and fro conversation add add more value to the piece they have written.

Site Feedback requests want constructive criticism on the site as you said widgets colours images plugins H1 H2 H3 , etc etc

If you feel you have nothing to say on site comments try broadening your search to allow you to find sites that interest you

Sometimes it takes some time and effort to find new interesting sites to comment on, and I'm refining my search for that too. But what about my last sentence. I can't believe I am being blocked, but mostly I can't add comments on people's sites with a few exceptions...Its hard to earn new comments on mine for that reason...

I asked the question because I have seen other posts of members saying there are a lot of sites that want comments but they have no interests in them. In Kyle's example he says if you want 50 comments on your site you need to make 100 comments on other sites. I'm just saying there may not be 50 people wanting to comment on your site whether it has good content or not.

I would like to comment here on some websites that I have seen while using SiteComments. If your website is promoting Wealthy Affiliate, please, Please make sure and let people know about the pricing here. I have seen a few websites that mention the free starter membership all the way through their posts, but nothing about the premium pricing (just don't forget to tell them about the discounted month, when upgrading before their 7 days is up). While in chat, I have seen people come in and ask what the catch is. When told about premium, they leave without saying a word. WA is a great program and we all need to let everybody out there know what to expect before coming in here. If we don't, they may think it's a scam.
Just thought I'd throw that out there.
Good luck to you all!

It is what I call "pay it forward" reward. It should be in everyone's walk to help other members, that is what WA is all about, helping each other. You get one credit for every comment you leave. If you got more credits, then slackers would slack off in giving comments. Hey, good question. I hope this helps.

I definitely think the new SiteComments is a great new feature to WA!

However, I noticed you can only use sites created through SiteRubix here on WA. Which is unlike sitefeedback where I can put in any URL from a site not hosted on WA.

I started my website before joining WA so its not on SiteRubix, but I would still love to take advantage of this great new offering!

Will there be support for external websites in the future?

This is only for websites that are hosted at WA, another benefit to hosting your websites here (other than the fact that you are getting state of the art hosting, website builder, and features never seen before).

We build tools/platforms here at WA for our services, not other companies. You can still use the comment thread, but if you want to use our website platform your website of course must be hosted here.

I've got a slight glitch when replying, not sure if anyone else has this issue. When I reply using the internal system here at WA my Gravatar isn't working. Yet if I reply directly from my site it does.

Discovered the same a couple of days ago. It worked fine when it first launched.

I also noticed that the glitch with the number of comments updating on a post has been resolved. Also when replying to a comment on my website the default author is no longer admin. So I wonder if these fixes have somehow caused this new glitch?

Hi Jay,
Not sure if they have fixed the glitch in the last few days you were experiencing regarding the Gravatar not showing up but it seems to be working for me. One thing I noticed which might help. When approving and replying to comments you get a choice of which site user you want the reply to come from, make sure the user you select has same email address as the one you registered in Gravatar, I have two users on my site, Admin and Neil, one has an email using my site's domain name and the other a Gmail address. However both are registered with Gravatar so I can use either but would usually use Neil for comments as it's more personal for comments (as per Kyle's training)
Thanks
Neil

How do you skip a site? I have already commented on a site that showed up. I don't know why it's showing back up, because as far as I know, it doesn't really have anything to do with my interests. It seems like it's more like gaming or hobbies. I don't have either of those clicked. Not sure what I've clicked to make it come up. I guess I can add some kind of nice (relevant) comment.

Ok, nevermind. I kept clicking and it finally went away. If it comes back, then I'll just comment at that time.

At least yours is appropriate. I kept getting a site for sexual performance pills. Kinda ticked me off cuz it was so inappropriate and nothing to do with what I had selected for my interests. I don't know how to report sites as being inappropriate, so I just sent a private message to Kyle about it.

Thanks Jeremy! I clicked on it about 7-8 times, but it wouldn't go away. I finally clicked on "My Settings", then went back down and clicked on "Offer Comments" again and it finally went away. :)

Oh no Maschan! I wouldn't want to leave a comment on that either. Not sure if it would come back or not, but you can try what I did, if you can't make it go away by simply clicking the offer comments button again. I clicked on my settings, then clicked on offer comments again and it went to the next one.

Okay, I'm gonna own up here, I didn't approve someones feedback I felt it wasn't relevant, long enough and rushed ( to get credits).

I filled out a text box after I rejected it asking me what I thought was wrong with it. Will the person who gave me the sub-standard feedback get a copy of my reasons or not. Also, will he keep those credits if it was rejected?

I know I'm heartless but I don't want my site ruined by non-relevant comments.
Reply
DIVICAN Premium
Yes the comments are automatically checked and immediately as it is confirmed that it is unique then the member earns the credits.
Reply
dillbizz Premium
But what if the comment is unique but the website owner who requested the comment thinks it is not up to standard for their website?

You see, does that mean that someone could just write a load of tosh and earn a credit for it because it is "unique"?

Abosolutely not but I think the reason to why the member earns the credit Kyle and Carson are taking care of their members here and giving them a good way to go forward by giving them such incentives.

When I'm contributing, I sometimes ask the site owner a question in my comment. I feel this is good practice as it creates a dialogue, but when the recipient answers my question I do not get the opportunity to say "thanks" and therefore the comment doesn't look right. What do you think about being able to tick a box in Site Comments to say "please update me by email" so that we can follow the thread and close off our question?
Reply
Kyle Premium
A response is actually more than adequate as a thanks is not need and the reason we didn't create a platform with back and forth is because with every additional comment the conversation and the dialogue will only get diluted (and the platform itself would become highly inefficient to use carrying on huge conversations).

It seems you can only skip so many and then it gets stuck. The only way around it is to go in an change your preferences (specifically the one where the "stuck" website would fall under. Then go back to earn feedback. You can always go and changes your preferences back again later.

I would expand you interests, if there is nothing in the system within your selected interests it will find the closest match so that you have at least something to comment on.

If you are are to targeted with your interests (one or two), then initially you might have limited choices when the system is getting off the ground.

I only set it at one option to try to unstick the system, it was stuck on a horse site. I have about 8 interests selected, I kept getting the same site, no matter what interest I selected.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sometimes if an article has been "skipped" too much, it will be locked as the next in the queue to prevent people from requesting comments and not getting any help (people skipping it over and over again). That is likely what happened here and sometimes in this case, all it will take is a little research to articulate a very good response.

As the system scales this will happened far less often as more people with more interest are using the system.

Site Comments is a knockout feature. I have one question, though. When working with the comments, I can only find out the user's Gravater. How do I find the user's WA profile? Clicking on the name or the photo makes no difference - they both take me to Gravatar.

Hi Kyle,
This is a fab new addition and I have already used it. My only worry is that I will get a lot of comments from our male members.
My site is about ladies fashion. I already have mostly male comments (thanks to my WA members) but friends etc comment on the amount of male commenters I have and I'm not sure it will bode well with Google. Also, no offense to the men, but the ladies give better feedback on ladies fashion.
Any ideas?

People will likely move on if they don't feel they are comfortable commenting which will lead to a much higher rate of women commenting on your post. We don't have a "gender" filter at this point but it could definitely be a consideration for a future update here. That is a good idea.

Hi Kyle,
Great idea and I gave it a try. I don't see any particular reason this tool needs to be limited to SiteRubix websites. Any chance it can be modified so a user can list their websites in their profile and choose from that list rather than the SiteRubix list? If you can do that, this one feature alone will pay for the annual renewal.
Best wishes,

MoritzS Premium
All sites that are hosted on WA can use this feature.
I guess there are two reasons for this:

1. This tool needs access to the site to be allowed to leave comments, approve/disapprove them and to reply to the comments.
If we would want to use sites that are hosted elsewhere we would have to give WA access to the Cpanel there and it would be a much bigger challenge as this tool already was anyways.
Programming a tool like this is rather complicated.

2. It is an incentive to use WA hosting. After all Kyle and Carson are business men who want to earn money.
They do this in a very great way: helping people to succeed.
They could have been greedy and ask for more money if we want to use this tool.
But they didn't! They give it away for free for everybody who uses their hosting!

I think this is great!
Reply
APathfinder Premium
1. I agree that programming the tool is fairly complicated, but clearly the programmers have the chops to pull it off. Adding the capability to go to other sites shouldn't be much more difficult. The website owner would need to provide Wordpress user credentials with appropriate access along with the URL and whatever other info the system needs.

2. Since WA hosting comes free with premium membership, it's actually saving Kyle and Carson some money by using other hosts - although using WA hosting does make it more sticky - if WA needs to be more sticky than it already is.

I thick it's great too!
Reply
DLansing Premium
There is a reason why this amazing feature is only available exclusively at SiteRubix. I mean, if you're a businessman, you want to keep this exclusive to your clients only, which is us the Premium WA members. If other non-WA sites also have this features, chances are some of the members may feel that WA is unnessary anymore. Not a good business move at all. Fact is that, we should be very grateful that this great new feature comes without further cost to us Premium user here.
Reply

Not at all what I suggested. One would still need to be a WA Premium member to use the tool. No other site would host the tool. This addition would just make WA Premium even more desirable than it already is and ultimately draw more business for Kyle and Carson.

Who knows, they might just pull it off. In which, if it is to happen, would be another crazy achievement by the ever improving WA team.

One line comments are not allowed within the system, there are many specific controls we have put into place within the platform to ensure quality comments.

(1) No duplicate content allowed
(2) Comments must meet a specific length criteria
(3) Comments are offered from people with the same "interests

As you dig into the system, you are going to really see the power of it. It is changing the way we comment in a good way, it is concise and the technology itself leaves very little room for ambiguity.

It's actually not important as backlinks serve very little value and having links within your comments on your site is not a good thing as it can lead to traffic leak and dilution of your rankings (as Google will see all of these and view your page as a link farm).

I haven't encountered seeing 2 sites, I'm assuming you mean at the same time?

When you say "totally unrelated to mine", do you mean you only have selected interests relating to your site? I've selected all categories that interest me in general, makes commenting more varied.

Kyle Premium
As the system is relatively new, there is not going millions of comments to choose from just yet. The point of this platform is also not to "cherry pick" comments, it is to see a comment that is within a broader interest of yours and spend some time engaging in that concept/idea.

Sometimes this can take a few minutes of research, which is totally appropriate and normal. You are not going to be an expert on every topic within every niche, in fact there are a ton of things I don't know about the health niche and the internet marketing niche...but that doesn't mean that I am not going to leave a comment simply because I don't know the material right away. I will read it and perhaps even do a bit of research.

Hi Kyle, Truly, I find your ideas and design for this new "Comment Management System" very unique and effective. I learned a few things just reading your post.

Well, I went to SiteComments and went through your Intro and then proceeded to Offer Comments, after editing my profile interests. I have 2 "comments" for you.

1. The websites requesting comments are not related to the profile interests I selected. I was only able to get two websites requesting comments. One was related to Binary Options Trading and the other was Selling Engagement Rings. But, I chose gardening.for my profile interest. I have not interest in Binary Trading (Investments) or Engagement Rings

2. Only one website page was listed at a time. There should be a list of websites properly designated to the subject interest. This way, I can choose what website page, I would like to comment on.

Hope my feedback is clear.

I agree, I've noticed a few similar teething problems and gone back and adjusted my interests to try and get past this. My two main concerns at this time are:

- what if I don't feel able to submit a good comment for the site I am presented with? At the moment (I understand this is brand new so things may well change) I can't skip that site and comment on the next site that wants comments instead.

- I submitted a comment for one site, then the next comment request I was asked to fulfill was for the same site, but different page. Wouldn't this look a bit spammy? Particularly as this is already for a member I've commented on in the past.

(don't get me wrong, their site is awesome and I'm happy to comment, but does Google get upset if there are lots of comments from one person?)

Hi team WA. One word: Awesome.
One question: will we see independent comments from external visitors in this tool? or do we need to still log into our site to see those?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Only comments derived from the system itself will be managed here at WA, your other comments will be handled in the same way that you are now through your WP-admin area.

May be a stupid question but will there still be an opportunity for us to critique sites/pages elsewhere (and for others to critique ours also of course)?
If I'm asked to, my critiques can be quite in depth and I'm not sure that is what's required when giving comments.
Would be glad of a definitive answer if at all possible?
Thanks

There is already a website feedback feature here which is different from leaving comments. You shouldn't critique a site within the comments section, :)

No, the new system is for website comments only. Kyle said (in live chat) the existing comment thread will gradually be phased out. :)

Not a stupid question, never think there is one. But if you ever want a good critique there are a lot of people who would do it for you. I would leave a blog asking for volunteers and then maybe choose a few of them and then get more than one point of view.
Of course you should also have a good relationship with your referrer and they should help you as well.
I am always at your service and I will do what I can to help you also.

Thanks San, appreciate your sentiment!

Good idea about maybe getting a group together via a blog, may just do that when I have a moment or two!

With regards to my referrer......hmmmmm. :-(

Not quite sure what to make of it so far and I wasn't planning on sharing this at all but seeing as you raised the matter here goes:

I did a fair bit of WA members' external site surfing before joining up, dismissed a few, made up a shortlist and then put my details into a web form at one where I got a five day course in return. All good so far, this was a couple of months ago.

I then decided to jump in via this member's site, got the usual pre-made welcome emails etc., and that was about 3 weeks ago.

I decided to go premium pretty quickly therefore earning that member their first commission and I plan to stay for the long haul meaning they will continue to earn from me every month.

During my time on the site I noticed that I hadn't seen any activity from this member and also I hadn't had a personal acknowledgement from them when I joined (just the standard one sent via the system) or when I upgraded even though it earned the member credits and money.

Haven't even had any follow up broadcasts through their autoresponder either and I know the person is still active online because their exterior blog has fresh content from recently, so all in all I'd have to say I'm more than a little disappointed and probably wishing I had made a different choice.

Needless to say that is NOT how I will be conducting my business in here.......mini rant over...hahahaha!

Thanks again for your reply San

No, you earn credits on a 1 to 1 basis, but you need 2 credits for every request that you make.

This is a great addition, I used a similar system 3-4 years ago, but it wasn't very well controlled and was open to abuse, however I'm sure that won't happen here. I'm going to port my latest website over to WA so I can use this new feature.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, we have thought ever aspect of the system through and abuse of the system is already protected against and if there are any users that do go rogue within the system, you can disapprove their comments which leads to a negative rank within the system.

That is great Kyle, I would hate to see people use the forum for abuse, it seems to always occur not matter how hard you try.

Start using this and it has been working, except for one problem. Even though I submitted my name (Oral) and Gravatar, my reply had me logged in as admin, without my Gravatar. However, on the sites where I posted comments, both my name and Gravatar are there. How do we fix this?
Reply
Mrrandom Premium
Did you use the email that is registered with your gravatar? I just signed up within the past hour, and mine instantly showed up.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your reply has to be from one of the users you have associated with your website, this is not tied to the gravatars within SiteComments (they are just used for when you comment on other people's websites).

If you want to add more users you can do this within your WP-admin area of your website under the Users tab.
Reply
OralC Premium
Yes I did and it shows up on the sites when I comment there, but when I reply to comments on my site, it isn't showing like that. It is showing me as "admin," and my Gravatar is missing.
Others persons also have the same problem.
Reply
OralC Premium
I might be a little slow in getting this so I need to work it out. So the Gravatar I added is only for comments on other sites? But when I reply it doesn't work as it does in the WP comment section, even though the user is the one and same? Just not getting it right now. I have to take my time to understand this.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, the gravatar you add is only for comments you add to other sites. When you reply, you are replying from one of your users for that associated websites...which is why you select one of the users you reply from, the same way you would if you were managing comments within the WP-admin area.

Here is some gravatar training if you want some further insight into how they work Oral:
Reply
OralC Premium
Thanks Kyle. I realize I didn't explain my problem properly before. I know how the Gravatar works since I was always using them before. Secondly, I only use one User (Oral) with which my Gravatar is connected. When I do comments and reply in WP everything worked well.

The problem I was having with SiteComments (when I selected Approved and Reply) is my reply was not showing up from Oral, but admin. though I was logged in as Oral. The comments however, were from Oral. So it appears that one user commented (Oral) and another replied (admin).

Anyhow I decide to get around this by approving the comments from SiteComments and then reply from WP-comments, and everything works there.
Don't know if it was a temporary problem at the time, but I will use this method for now. I will check to see if it works the way it should the next time around. Thanks again Kyle for this initiative.

Ok Kyle, don't need to reply, I just saw this reply of yours to The Old Silly. So my problem is solved. Awesome

I kept replying to comments, but forgetting to click on which user the reply should be from just above where we reply. Hence they showed up as the default admin.

SiteComments doesn't appear to recognise if you're logged into your wordpress backoffice.

I never notice that option, hence my problem. But I just realized from Kyle's response to someone else that is what needs to be done. Thanks.

I was wondering if anyone else was having problems with the system. I know it's new but it seems to be glitching on all three of my sites. The comments are appearing on each of the sites but the blurb above them still reads '0 comments on “YOUR POST NAME".'
So I now have comments on certain posts with this above them. Looks kinda freaky because there are comments directly below this '0 comments' statement

Can you give me a live example of this Christopher (the URL of the page this is happening). If you could PM this to me I will have a look and escalate if there is something else we need to do in terms of incrementing the comments.

You will get the hang of it.

Basically as you build out content on your website, you can manufacture natural "dialogue" through comments on your website through the SiteComment system.

Engagement of this nature is very important in terms of site quality, rankings and your overall success.

Once our comment has been approved & published how can we get back to the post authors WA profile?

Reason I ask -
I went to see one of my comments that was approved & published as listed in the 'Comment History' section, but their WA profile link is not there (like it was before submitting a comment) in order to PM them.

Just wanted to raise that on checking my published comment all my apostrophes and quotes have come up as:
’
so makes the comment look strange to say the least.
Reply
Kyle Premium
We actually want to avoid people contacting others in this sort of fashion as it can dilute the quality and create a far less "unbias" sort of system. You can see your comment history, but there we didn't feel there was a need to show each and every user you commented on.

We will definitely look into the apostrophe issue and get this fixed. Was this on your actual website that you saw these issues or was it within the SiteComments system?
Reply
BrigitteB Premium
Thanks for getting back to me Kyle.

The apostrophe error is in my comment published on the other persons website. It looked fine in the SiteComments when I submitted it. Hence why I was trying to get back to them.

It associates your wordpress email to an avatar, so anywhere you sign your name online your avatar will show up. Thats how peoples image show up in the comments on your site.

You can create a different gravatar for as many sites as you own.
