Let's Find Out How To Add Comments To Websites Through SiteComments

Once you've clicked on the green Ready, Steady, Go... button, the following screen will appear.

(If you have already done the tour, and are returning to SiteComments, click on the Websites heading on the left hand menu, then click on SiteComments).

1/ Click on the blue Earn Credits button

2/ Click on Edit My Interests

This is important as this will let the system know which websites you prefer commenting for.

3/ Look through the list and only select the categories you are interested in. If you don't do this first, your skip rate will be very high and you may not be able to reach less than 20% Skip Rate to qualify for a Certified Commenter.

4/ When you are satisfied with your selection, click on the blue Save Interests button.

This will save your selection of interests and only those websites will be shown to you for you to comment on.

Now you are ready to make your first comment on someone's website.

As you can see in the image above, a website appears on the left of the screen, and the specific request of the website owner has stipulated exactly what they want the comment to be about.

Here is a list of those possibilities:

  • Questions On The Topic Or Overall Article
  • Discussion About The Topic
  • Offer Experience With The Topic
  • Opinion About The Topic

It is important to stay in these guidelines for the requested comment so that your comment isn't disapproved.

What you need to remember here is that giving constructive criticism, may not be what they want to hear right now, that may fall under feedback, but this is a comment, and so you need to concentrate on what is asked for.

Always check this list FIRST before you enthusiastically comment, only to find they didn't ask for any questions, or any discussion - this example however does ask for those in the comment.

Now that you know what is expected of you, you may proceed.

5/ Click on the View This Website button - this is required in order for the system to confirm that you have visited the website and read what is in the article.

Read through the entire article and form your comment in your mind, or make notes as you are reading.

Once you've understood and decided what you will comment on, then, DON'T type your comment on the website, you won't receive your community credit for it if you do.

6/ Click in the area below the website within the SiteComments platform in Wealthy Affiliate where it shows to type your comment.

7/ If you are not interested in commenting on this particular website, you have the option to click on the I'm Not Interested button.

However, remember, this action will up your Skip Rate, so choose wisely and carefully, this is why your selection of which categories you prefer is so important.

8/ If you are interested in providing a comment, then type in your comment as directed in the image above on your screen, when you are satisfied with your comment and spell checked it, click on the green Submit My Comment to Earn 1 Credit.

This will take a few moments to vet the uniqueness of your comment and if authentic and original, it will then show that you have successfully submitted the comment.

If you during your commenting, notice any website that you believe is not towing the line with WA Guidelines, you may click on the red Report Site button to report the site.

Hello Edu,

Great training I will get on this platform as soon as I can spend some time.

I used to skip over many websites because I could not or wanted to give a half decent comment.

Glad to hear you have a new perspective on commenting Jimmy.

Once your interests settings are correct, your Skip Rate will drop significantly as you won't have to skip many websites, because they will be linked to, and based on your specified and selected interests.

Let's see you supplement your WA membership fees with your Certified Commenter Status earning you $0.50 for every other comment! :-)

Let me know if you need further help.

This is by far the most thorough and BEST explanation of comments and feedback. I just wish I had read it all sooner and prevented some confusion and disappointment.

Thanks for putting me on the right tracks!

Hi Roger

Thank you for your encouraging words.

I'm glad you found the training thorough. I try to picture the learner not knowing anything about what I'm writing about and then add as many concise steps as it takes to get the job done.

If you need any further help, let me know and I'll do my best to assist.
