Over 1500 Comments Between My Two Sites

Last Update: August 15, 2019

Update: I just discovered I have a featured snippet from one of my comments that I just approved today!

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/swangirl/blog/featured-snippet-from-comment-i-just-approved-today-thanks-wa

I realized I have over 1200 comments on my cat site and over 300 on my health site now. That is over 1,500 comments between the two.

I have really enjoyed interacting with so many of you here on WA as well as the handful of organic comments I have received.

I am also very proud to say I have left hundreds of comments on other people's sites with a 100% approval rate.

The ability to get good quality comments is a great part of WA and very valuable for our website rankings in the search engines.

Comments are great. Keep it up and thank you for your comments!

Jessica

Oh my goodness! That’s a lot of comments. I am always amazed when people take the time to leave a REALLY good comment. It is easy to see who actually took the time to read the article and maybe learned something from it. Great job. I have seen wonderful comments from you!

That's wonderful! I'm at around a 100 comments on my website, I'm getting there 😊😉
It's great to support each other with comments and at the same time I've also gotten to know people a little better through website comments 😊 I love that.

Hi Jessica,

It's funny that I never see anyone's website blogs that I know when I make comments. Which to me is not all that unusual considering how many members are here.

I do see so many blogs about MLM's and other reviews and guess what? They all seem to be WA members as well.

I enjoy your blog posts here in WA and would be interested in reading one of your posts on your website...I just might look up your site and check it out.

I wish you the best!

Thanks Bob! That would be great. There is nothing stopping us from exchanging comments with other members outside of Site Comments too. I do that with other people I know here.

I agree with you. I never see posts to comment on from anyone I know on Site Comments! I rarely get comments from others I know on there either.

Wow, that´s a lot of comments! 1200 comments on one website, that´s awesome. I also love receiving good comments, and giving good comments to others. It seems not so many random visitors leave "organic comments". So, it´s great we can give each other comments here in Wealthy Affiliate.

Can I ask, how many comments do you normally request per post? Someone said to me it´s not good to have too many comments either, like dozens of comments per post. I don't know if that´s true? Is there an "optimal" amount of comments per post that search engines like, or the more the better?

You can request comments on your site from the feedback area

And I don’t think there is a set amount of comments
So you can go there leave your feedback

And request feedback as well
Hope this helps

All the best

I only request one at a time. It is not good to get tons of comments all at once since it could look like spam.

I don't think there is any harm in having a ton of comments as long as they are spaced out over time. We often get a few more than one comment when we request one but that is like a free bonus here at WA.

As far as I am concerned the more the better.

Thanks for your reply! I´ll do the same from now on; request only one at a time.

Hello Jessica,

That's an amazing amount of comments, well done! It's great that you have been able to return the favour, one of the many benefits of Wealthy Affiliate is that we can interact with others.

Enjoy your day.

Thanks Kyle! I think a lot of people underestimate the power of comments for our SERPs. I was amazed when I figured it out a few years ago.

Congratulations, Jessica. That's a great effort.

I find leaving comments to be very time consuming. In saying that, I realize the value of both giving and receiving comments.

I was commenting yesterday on members' posts. This is something I hadn't done for several months.

I was surprised to see in one of the 4 options listed, the word 'feedback' included. I thought that word to be very confusing among the requests for comments!

I will have to look more closely. That does sound confusing.

Just this month I started cheating and buying comments here on WA. I couldn't imagine doing that when the option first came out but it seems worth it considering how much time it saves. I won't be able to continue doing this due to cost. The vaaaaast majority of my comments were earned the old fashioned way by leaving 2 first. It was fun to get a batch of credits available all at once though.

That reminds me I need to use SiteComments again.
I got disappointed for not getting a quality comments in spite the fact that used credits to get one.

Curious, how you did do that? I am so scared of SiteComments. One disapproved due to a rookie error. Have not been back nor dare touch it again or even try to ask for any for my site. Perhaps you can make a tutorial for us? Teach me please.

That is a great idea, tutorial would be really useful, I have given a few, but have not been acknowledged and despite them saying they would return the favour they never did...😳 so I think I must have done something wrong....

There have been so many, many discussions about comments here over the years that I always shy away from saying any more. I will think about it based on your request however.

If you search for Comments in the search bar I am sure you will find dozens of examples but of course it would take time to weed through them!

I have actually never created a training here!

I was careful to read a lot and make sure I understood the expectations before I started leaving any comments and I have never participated in Site Feedback.

You could always start by using the Give and Take Comment thread instead of Site Comments.

Jessica - well done - WOW - 100% approval rate.
Your cat site is certainly receiving a lot of comments.

I like the bird image in your post. I am thinking what the bird on the right is saying - LOL

I have many more posts on my cat site than my health site. I think I only have 9 posts on my health site! That is why there are so many more comments.

Thank you!

Thanks Michael. Do you mean WA posts or website posts?

Hi Jessica,
I was assuming these are WA posts. Between the two websites you have I am sure you have written extensively also.

wow!. That is a lot of comments. Well done on that. Do you make comments on non-wa sites in your community?

That is a very effective traffic strategy and way of getting yourself out there in front of your audience.

That’s such a great idea! I’ll have to try that.

Swangirl Premium
Thanks. I have done that here and there but not a lot. I mostly do that with other sites where I know the owners and we have agreed to share comments.

That great, don't underestimate the power of it. I'm getting traffic from comments I left years ago! As long as it is a good helpful comment, has your link in the right place (the appropriate box and not the actual comment).

People will get curious about you and click on over to your site. Just make sure you commenting on established sites that are gonna be there long term!.

Really good traffic-wise and for establishing your brand. Plus you can get a little rankings boost. I have sent links (comments ones) to specific articles and seen them rise in the serps.

Thank you! My second site only has a handful of posts so having 300 comments there is pretty amazing.
