When Carson announced the new website and hosting page, I guess I wasn't paying attention. I noticed the bar that said that a site needed work or that the site was improving, but that was that.

I decided all I had to do is add another page or post and that would do the job. I noticed that the site needs work notification was gone and that I have been promoted to the site is improving category.

Then the other day I saw this little button by the notification banner. I clicked on it, and all kinds of stuff popped up. My site content was good on all of my sites that all of my sites were right in Google. I didn't do as well in the other categories. I have too many plug-ins on some sites and I'm always supposed to have five or fewer.

Also I was lacking in the comment area which indicates site interaction and lets the search engines know that the site is a living thing. So I have work in every category of which there are eight (8).

Just in case somebody else missed what is going on there at the website and hosting page, I decided to make this little movie as a reminder. But some of our members do not host here at Wealthy Affiliate. I started hosting whenever it was first offered. It cost me nothing of it is part of my premium membership. I only have about a dozen or so sites posted now but one time I had over 30. I believe that 30 sites is now the limit.

Members hosting elsewhere can go to the website and hosting page and find the criteria there.

Notice that anyone can have at their site health checked by clicking the link on the website and hosting page.

I guess that is about it! I've got to get out of here. My granddaughter is making hot cross buns even though a day late. I told her that I did not get my cut cross buns yesterday and she said she she didn't know about them. How can anyone not know that you have hot cross buns on Good Friday?

Have a Happy Easter and Passover or whatever other holiday you may be celebrating.

John

Thanks TJ. We never had hot cross buns, at least I don't remember having them.

I'm so glad I read the comments here. I thought I was either going crazy (not a long trip) or this was like that movie Ground Hog day. :-) I'm getting this message and a couple others over and over and over.

Good training from you though. :-)

Thank you, John, I must have also missed the message about site health. It appears that there are a few things that I need to work on but things are not looking too bad.

I'm getting this link sent 5 times each day starting when you posted. Is there a reason or some glitch?

I think it's a glitch with the email servers. I guess they had the primary email server down for maintenance and were using a backup email server.

Carson told me in another comment that the problem should be fixed when the primary server is put back online, which I think it has, but I think the problem is still continuing.

Well don't post. Is there a reason or some glitch? If the problem doesn't get resolved then like everyone below has said put a ticket in.

Posting has nothing to do with it. I was getting five emails a day before anyone even replied. Including me. Hope you understand this. Thanks.

Not sure about how accurate the website health system really is. I guess for newbies it can let them know what they should work on or what is lacking. So as a basic start up tool, probably okay,
Thanks.
Not sure what cross buns are or their relation to good friday. All fridays are good in my book! :)

Thanks, you have some great tips! I have a few questions though.
1). Someone told me that once you have the framework for your site built out, you don't need to post content as often, just make sure to do it consistently. So do I need to post regularly or is it ok if I just post twice a week (on the same days)?
2). Did you say that members not hosting at WA can have their site health checked by linking it to WA whilst still keeping the hosting elsewhere? Is this possible? My site is hosted on GoDaddy and I really want to see my site health :\
I can't believe you should only have 5 plugins though. My site has 27 plugins active! lol! I've optimised everything though, so it's quite fast still..

1. If you post twice a week, that is great. I try to post at least once each week on each of my sites.

2. You will be able to use the checklist. You just won't get a score from 0 to 100. The main thing is to follow the checklist to make sure all is well.

3. Plugins. I questioned this too. I have more than 5 and the sites seems to lead fine.

Thanks for reading my stuff. John

Thanks for the info, TJ. I missed this tool the first time it was announced. I really going to have to look at it in detail. From what you describe in the video and text, it definitely will go in my toolkit.

You don't need your site hosted here, as you probably know, to use the checklist. Happy Easter and a Blessed Day! John

Hey TJ
Found the video to be helpful but the pics took it away for me.
What I mean is, I couldn't see the type and was struggling to see what was there. After a short time I realized what it was and noticed I hadn't missed anything.
Like your approach maybe try pics without the type or scrolling in a different way. Maybe pics that not so bright in color.

The info was a must need. Hope you don't mind me saying, this is like a check list. Something that would help me see what needs to be done or gone back over..

Hope this helps
Larry

The type that comes up on the Pics you already read. A fluke in Movie Maker. I used the pics as commas in the narration. Thanks, Larry! John
