Thank you Kyle! I've only recently realized how I've been neglecting this awesome feature of WA and started putting it to good use, so the timing of this video is perfect! In pondering this tool's many benefits, I had thought about all the ways that I believed using Site Comments would benefit your website's SEO and authority, and it was good to hear you confirm in the video, (and post) what I had already surmised. Furthermore, you taught me things about using this feature that I DIDN'T previously know! I'm thoroughly pleased, thanks again!

I do have one question, however. When using the "Offer Comments" side, there's a button at the bottom labeled "Ignore Site". I'm assuming this is useful for situations where you may not want to comment on a particular post, for whatever reason. I'm further assuming that this is connected to the "Skip Rate" listed on the main Site Comments page, or tab.

My primary question then is this: What are the consequences to both or either of those involved, (i.e., the one offering comments and the one who is requesting comments) when this "Ignore Site" button is used?

Kevin

Really glad you enjoyed this walk-through and you learned a lot from it Kevin. If someone is cherry picking comments (using the ignore button with frequency), they will be shown a lot less and if this is a trend, they will be booted from the system.

In the Settings section, you can see the "type" of comments that you want to see, so I recommend that you set that up so you are not getting website comment requests under topics that have no relevance to you or that you aren't interested in commenting about.

I hope this clarifies for you, but let me know if you have any further questions. ;)

That certainly does clarify things, and I'll adjust those settings accordingly.

Thanks Kyle

Great to hear that clarifies things for you Kevin! :)

Thanks Kyle for that answer, I was going to ask the same question as Kevin.

Good information, I actually love looking at other posts and seeing how they did things. And I like to learn new things, every day. At 71 I still get excited to read and learn about what makes others tick.

This video and post answers the questions I had on the differences between comments and feedback. Thanks Kyle!

Excellent, glad this offered clarity between the two platforms, as they are quite different. When you leave site comments you want to engage directly with the topic itself, you’re not not giving feedback on the website.

I use SiteComments all the time. I find it so useful and it really gives your blog posts credibility. Plus the SEO gods love it

Excellent, that is great to hear. I use it as well as I create new content for my websites. it is powerful to get engagement going really early on with new post, and it also encourages more engagement.

Thank you Kyle I appreciate you, a wonderful winning Wednesday to you and your loved ones.

No problem, and you have a wonderful Wednesday as well! :)

Great information, Kyle! Thank you very much!

Jeff

No problem Jeff!

Thanks, Kyle!
