I LOVE the new Comment Exchange System

Last Update: October 30, 2015

I've been thinking about the issues people have mentioned on the commenting system for a while, and I just wanted to throw this out there for the people who are frustrated by it:

1) I have never heard of any system having the Comment System, or many of the systems, we have here. I think we are unique and it is untested water and we should be thankful to be a part of it, and patient with it. It may take a little time to work through, but it will be worth it.

2) When I joined here I thought I would be lucky to be taught just to build a website, but was shocked to find out that Kyle and Carson are really taking a holistic approach to helping people monetize their set ups, regardless of whether they are WA sites, Niche Sites, etc.

3) When I pay $47 for an entire month of using the unbelievable selection of training and features found here, I am appalled to think of how much time and money I wasted on a college degree in science only to start my career with a real estate license, and how much incredible waste of energy is involved in the college system oftentimes.

4) When I see Carson come here and take care of things despite what is happening with his family situation I realize how lucky we all are that he and Kyle see this system and community as important enough to continue to devote themselves to, even though I'm certain they could both afford to rest on their laurels and spend more time with their families - sell out like so many other systems have, only to be ruined, many times.

I'm hoping that rather than be aggravated about issues with the comment system, we can simply look at it as a Beta-Test of sorts, and be courteous enough to give the guys feedback on it, while looking forward to it being perfected, as they do with everyone else.

I happen to think it is sheer genius, like all their other brain children. It's like riding the "space shuttle" on the first ride. A little bumpy, maybe, but totally worth it!! HAHA

I just discovered site comments the other day. I have only given two comments and not asked for any yet, but yes--what a great system! I am learning and getting ideas as I make comments, and I know that I will benefit immensely when I ask others to give me comments in return.

I couldn't agree more Alexx. Thank you for the insight. When K&C added Site Comments to our SiteRubix Portal their objective was to help us achieve more "engagement" on our sites to help our SERPs.

They developed a system (very techie stuff) leveraging the pay it forward attitude in the community. To make it work it requires that commenters read the complete set of instructions and I believe many do not. That requires an extra click.

I'm sure K&C are working on an upgrade to the system addressing the short comings that have been voiced here in the community.

Well said. I enjoy the comment exchange, and haven't found any faults with the system itself.

It is definitely a lot of encouragement to hear from so many from different backgrounds, different experiences, and different points of view as we all strive to express ourselves, and build a business that we can pour our lives into. Gives each of us moments in our day to see a new perspective, or gain new ideas we hadn't thought of, or learn something new from others who car enough to share. Thx

Well the little devils are in my living room right now squawking and pecking and fighting and practice flying and... you name it! We got a room in the barn ready for them but I'm babying them. They are only 3 weeks old! Maybe another couple of weeks? -Alexx

Before I asked for my first comment I was quite apprehensive. I think it an awesome way of dipping your toes in the water if you are a newbie. Yes, I think of it as a Beta-test of sorts. Great post.

Hmm, can't agree more. Sometimes when we are disgruntled over something, we forget the MANY good things we get from that $47 monthly.

Hi Alex,
You make some very valid points. I have only had a few minor incidents with the comment system but over all love it and what it has done for my site. We're so lucky to have the best training and community on the net.

I feel that $47/month is more than reasonable just for the hosting of our websites - but to be taught how to build a site, how to get it ranked, etc. etc. etc. - WOW! Such a deal - you won't find anywhere else. The simple fact that they implemented a comment system is pretty awesome and I can be patient while they perfect it - because I know they will! The feedback system works very well and if they can do it once, they can do it again.

Blessings,
Debby

I can be totally patient too. I haven't needed to request comments yet and when I do I'm feeling secure about it in that you can reject a comment if it isn't suitable for you, just as you would do in normal moderation. It's a no-brainer to participate in such a thing if you feel you could use comments. I just love it. -Alexx

Hi Alexx have only started to place comments using the system . Found it to be a really excellent tool . True would have to agree that the wealthy affiliate platform is with out peer within the industry . All very exciting for our success . The thing that amazes me about the community is the shear amount of diversity when it comes to web sites . There are so many talented people here. Feel privileged to be in such great company .

Thanks Alexx for this interesting and informative post. Although I'm on WA every day for some reason I'm unaware of a new Comment Exchange System. I have started participating in the Comments that are accessed through Rubix. Are these the Comments that you are referring to?
Reply
SupportWorx Premium
Yes, via the Site Manager, Valerie... where you can find the button on the top right that says Site Comments, and you go in and comment on others' sites and in return you gain credit for people to comment on yours. It's an AMAZING set up. Really genius. -Alexx

Thanks very much Alexx. I'm pleased that I'm on the right track. I had noticed that comments weren't be requested as they had previously been. So all is good now :)

I am with you 100% on this subject Alexx. Not only is it a groundbreaking idea of theirs that has come to fruition, it was also an added power tool to use on our personal sites included in our monthly subscription. That in itself is very generous as most platforms drip feed you with new tools (sometimes worthless junk) every couple of months for staggering 'upsell' amounts! Thanks for bringing this up.
Cheers

Groundbreaking. That's exactly the word, Darwyn. And that's a great way to put it... they "dripfeed" us to death. I find it a real turnoff. I start to feel that the only reason for the system is to lead TO the dripfeeds. In sales we used to call it "nibbling". It's a sales tactic where you make the person think you're done with the "sale" then say, "Oh by the way..." like the car dealers do when you've already decided on price and they pile on all manner of crap into the financing. I hate those tactics. I never used them and find them to be the height of unprofessional to HAVE to use them, as though what you're selling has no value to begin with. You know? -Alexx

I love your ethical stance Alexx. I do get the whole sales funnel thing but some of these guys are as subtle as a brick. Hats of to Kyle and Carson for sticking to their ethics. This place wouldn't have been of the same quality if they hadn't?
Reply
SupportWorx Premium
Subtle as a brick! I love your expressions, D! You're hilarious. No, and it wouldn't be growing as relatively effortlessly if the principles didn't walk their talk. This is a battle I had with attorneys I worked with for years: They were so seduced by greed and their own self-aggrandizement they lost sight so much of the time of the fact that they had a DUTY to the clients, and the truth was all they had to do was a good job and business poured in like a landslide. The times when you do a crappy job are when your time gets taken up by problems and complaints and such. It's kind of epidemic in business these days. On the other hand, people operating with morals and professionalism have no trouble competing in the same arena because they look so bad in comparison. -A

I've commented on a number of sites so far without any problems, but haven't requested any comments to any of mine.

I've done exactly the same. Haven't requested anything yet... just saved up a few. A lot are sites that I don't understand, so I pass rather than do poorly for the person. -Alexx

Yes there are a few that you would need to be somewhat of an expert on to leave any plausible comment on. It's amazing at the variation in niches that people find.

My facebook group have the same system, Sharing topics and commenting on them. The difference, there's no ranking. You can leave comments to topics that interest you.

I gotta admit, I'm so behind the times on Facebook. I joined some groups and that's where it stopped. I'm just not feeling much for what to DO in the groups. And I'm avoiding it. I'll look for what you're talking about, thanks. -Alexx

Yeah B. I thought of this when I saw a lot of issues coming up with it, then when I read the update on Carson's son I was just bowled over with appreciation for the guy. Seriously, it's amazing that people can be so selfless in the face of such a serious emotional issue. He's a "real man" right? -Alexx
