The SiteFeedback platform here at Wealthy Affiliate is part of the Premium offering and allows anyone to get constructive and targeted feedback on their website, pages, and/or posts that they create.

Just wondering:
Before a website is up and running, does anyone at Wealthy Affiliate give it the once over to make sure that everything from the backend was done the right way?

Not just feedback as to how the website looks but, from the backend in the actual setup of the website.

I ask this only because I'm new to this.

I'm new too and honestly I don't think so but, there's a section in the siterubix tab that informs you of the site health so I think you need to follow that because it tells you what you need to lookout for.

Nope but you are going step by step from the training so you will be alright. I was new as well and everything worked out fine. You can ask questions in classrooms or on the live chat and you will get help when you need it. Good luck!

I am confused why anyone would use the "Site Feedback" link where you are forced to give 2 reviews to get one when they can go over to this post and put up their site and not (necassarily)give back? I know it is suggested to give reviews there too - but I don't see it happening

Also - I gave 4 long reviews - with a lot of detail.

I received one of my 67 word review (I requested 2 -still hoping the second one will be more detailed!)
I thought I had seen or heard in the guidelines to leave no fewer than 250 words - why is there not a stop on that page - when someone submits feedback that is not long enough (in words) it should not give them a credit or take credit away from someone who took the time to leave a detailed review.

The Site Feedback option means that you will get at least 1 feedback for your 2 feedbacks. The other thread, where you put up your domain name, and then 'hoped' to get feedback does not 'always work'. You get zero, one or more feedbacks.

Also you are assuming that the longer the feedback, that the more useful it is. This is not always the case. Different people see different things, and provide different feedback which is the nature of it. Some people will say "love your feature x" and others will say "hate your feature x".... so which is "more correct?"... That is then your call.

If I said "I think you are missing a clear CTA in your post" that could be something really useful to you. As you may know, a clear CTA is a call to action and is usually at the bottom of a post, inviting the reader to do something that you want them to do in return for something else. In my opinion, no post should be without a clear CTA (apart from the "legal posts").

perhaps the content was such that they couldn't find 250 words for. I did a feedback review of a site recently, the content was of a high standard that there was little I could add to improve it. I didn't make the 250 words either. I managed to scrape up to 140

Hi Everyone, kindly assist I created a new .com website but used a new/different name the one I had initially under siterubix, now I'm sooo confused that my new website is different to my content. I had thenaturalbeautyfix.siterubix and now bought a .com and named it cocobeautyfix...now the trick is I had to transfer the content on thenaturalbeautyfix to cocobeautyfix...so at the moment I have www.cocobeautyfix.com am not sure where to work from now?

Hi! Thee is no problems with the domain. You should transfer your website from siterubix to cocobeautyfix.com. Go to SiteManager, push the move button, then push To An Existing Domain. From the list choose your domain cocobeautyfix.com and push I'm ready move my site. That's it. Your website will be on your domain. It doesn't matter domain name. Feel free to ask me any further questions if you have any

You can work from your new website and delete the siterubix one. You can change the titles on your new site to match the domain name if you want.

I have yet to give feedback and get feedback, but I understand the reasoning for this early feedback even though we don't have a complete website. Feedback now will guide us on to the next steps of building our website and possibly put us in a new or better direction with our site that we weren't aware of. So we should welcome the feedback so we can build that #1 ranking website. I wish the best to everyone.

Help me understand: In giving feedback and accumulating credits I am not obligated to ask for feedback on my website until such time as I request it, right? This would be important to me because I know that though helpful I would not consider my site ready for review and might feel pressure to have push that process. Awkward..!
That said, I would like to use this feature because it is an opportunity for me to learn about site construction in a visual way...themes and they flow in the user experience

Yes, you just collect credits until you decide to use them to get feedback. That way you can decide how many people you want giving feedback on each page when you decide.

You are not obligated to ask for feedback until you formally request it in site feedback.

It is all part of the learning and doing experience. Do what you consider good, and have the site ready for site feedback. Bear in mind that other people may see other things that you would not consider, so having that feedback in an 'early stage' can direct what direction you go in.

I don't feel my site is ready for feedback yet either, but I requested anyway as I really think some form of feedback helps at any stage. I simply requested the feedback on my content, not on design.
