The Value Of Comments On Your Website
Last Update: Oct 29, 2015
I have heard Kyle mention now and again how important and beneficial, for numerous reasons, why we should ask for comments on our blogs and websites.
Some of the benefits for content comments are;
(i) it shows Google that there is traffic and interaction with visitors within your content.
(ii) it helps you to see if your content is really helping your visitors
I Received First Hand Experience
Just yesterday I posted my web page (http://goo.gl/mvZbCK) and requested comments.
I had very insightful comments from my visitors. One pointed out that I should "show", (instead of "tell" - as Kyle always says), because the video footages get to be a hassle for some people including myself due to slow internet connections.
I then went into my post to edit and only then I discovered that in my content I mention a video presentation which I did not even include in the page post. That visitor's comment doubly helped me. I got to correct a mistake that I hadn't noticed. I also got to create a website presentation that I hope will be helpful to others.
One of the others visitors asked me questions that allowed me to point them to the training sources here at Wealthy Affiliate. That showed me that my content still misses some information that the visitors out there could be in need of. From those comments, I have an opportunity to work on my content to make it better.
During one of the Bootcamp trainings, one of our ambassodors commented that links should be opened in a new window. Initial I didn't know how I would do that but when I took time to investigate his point. I noticed my error.
Some of the stuff will be learnt from the comments we receive.
Take Time To View Others' Posts And Leave A Comment
I appreciate getting these comments so much. Sometimes some of us may not comment because you feel that you will be sounding too harsh or insensitive with the comment that you want to make.
Please, if it going to help me grow to create better stuff that will help me with my online business, do not pull back any slapping. Well, smack me just enough to keep me going, not right out of the game..........
That said, let us all take it upon ourselves to take time from our very busy schedules, to read other peoples blogs and web pages and leave constructive, genuine comments. It is very helpful to each one of us.
Kind regards to you all,
