Don't worry about it. Stay focused, do your best, take a break once in a while and continue. You need to pursue long term goals and taking some time off when you are feeling stressed is totally fine.

Hi Sleat,
I hope you will be able to take a deep breath, relax for a while and return to your site refreshed. There is a solution for every problem we have, however, if we are angry, tense, and stressed it is impossible to see what may be right in front of us.
I'm sorry you are frustrated with the community and hope this issue will get better for you. I think most in the community have nothing but, good intentions when answering questions.
I wish you peace and tranquility tonight ~

stay humble & kind,
riley

No sure why it would have dropped back to the red. I wouldn't pay much attention to it.

The time you spend early on will seem like a lot, but it's the effort you put in now that will lead to having lots more free time down the track when everything's going well.

Sleat,

Your "SiteHealth" has nothing at all to do with here at WA my Friend.

It is only for your website and it saying that you need to be more interactive could mean that you either haven't had recent comments to your website and/or you haven't responded to the comments.

If you are putting in 50-60 hours a week Sleat, it may be time to take a breather my Friend as that is a lot of time especially if you are just getting started.

Let me know if there is anything else that you have questions about and I will do my best to either answer them for you or find someone who can.

Talk with you soon Sleat,

Tony

Well I've been with wealthy affiliate since the beginning of December I've started my third website trashed 2 of them
But I I think I am finally on the right track with a particular Niche on my website and that is why I have decided to go with a one-on-one coaching but sometimes I find this site a little bit clicky

I understand Sleat, unfortunately that is how most places are in life. WA is far better than any other community that I am or have been a part of so I can't complain.

And yeah yesterday I came down with a bug so I'm a little bit edgy and this is the most interaction I've had for about a month but like I said I'm very busy and I'm trying to get this going so that they do have more time and I don't seem to be getting to support from wealthy affiliate that I thought I was going to get at least not on the outside but I have found some very good contacts on the inside and my point for expressing this is because I probably will bring you a lot of Nubia Affiliates in the program like me who are very busy and want to get a different income going I hope they don't find the frustration that I have found

Sleat,

there are many of us who are willing to help Friends my Friend and I apologize if you haven't found the help that you have needed.

I have been earning on the internet since 2009 and do this full time so I can understand how frustrating it is when first getting started. I have been here at WA since June 2015 and never plan to leave, I have also referred just over 700 Friends to WA in those 31 months.

I also want them all as well as you and your Referrals to find WA helpful and a wonderful place to build an additional income stream.

Contact me anytime Sleat and I will do whatever I can to help,

Tony

Hi Tony my friend,

Can you tell me what if you do not use the internal tools of WA but purely work directly through your Wordpress theme?

Does that affect the site health negatively Tony?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Stefan,

I don't believe that not using the internal tools within WA affect your sites health my Friend.

The comments and feedback % is based upon comments and feedback so I guess that part may be affected.

I hope that this answer helps Stefan,

Tony

Thank you Toni,

Yes what I thought, my website is to specific that I cannot use all the site tools, it is just double work.

I also think that the plugins marker is just based on a count and that is not completely justified. You can have 4 plugins but one is crappy and crashes or breaks your theme causing you a headache with speed and more.

You can have 14 clean written plugins, some light weight and your site is fast, but the tool within WA says no as it only says you should not have more as x plugins to have a optimized site health.

So i think that works for most of the newbies, it is a very good idea, but for advanced users like you and me it draws a wrong picture of your websites site health.

Just wanted to point it out, so I cannot rely on site health.

How is that for you Tony, do you have experience with that?

Thank you my friend, I appreciate your help and thoughts in this.

Stefan

Please ... do not be so concerned with your website health, it is just a marker for your info. It does not mean it will be penalised in any way, it does not mean that you have to drop everything and fix it.

Sure it is nice to see it in blue, but it is not a big issue.

Do what you are doing, watch the videos, do the training, leave comments in WA blogs and at this stage don't worry about leaving comments in the "Site Comments" feature.

Just give yourself some time.

That's exactly what I intend to do and why I decided to pay for some one-on-one coaching because every time I make a comment or ask a question nobody seems to answer the point of my question or my comment and I really don't have time to waste trying to explain the point of my comment or question and getting a thousand answers that don't apply to anything that I'm asking about or commenting about!!!

Fair enough, if that is going to get you the best results, do it.

Just be careful though that you do not get led astray by the coaching - I mean by this that there many different viewpoints in this world of internet marketing - make sure that you do not get taken away from the approach of WA.

As far as site health interactive - do you mean engagement? If it's that, it's answering comments coming in on your site in a timely fashion. If it's asking for comments, it's easy to do if you go to the button underneath that say "request website comments here".

Maybe for now you should concentrate on getting through the training and writing good content on your site. Just by doing that, your site health will get better.

Once you get through the training, then you can go back and look at your site health areas and work on them individually.

Maybe you are trying to work on too many areas all at the same time. Try to schedule what you are working on each day so you are not frustrated, overwhelmed and feel overworked.

I hope that is helpful to you. Wishing you all the best.

YES I guess
But I just got an email saying that my comment on a was disapproved ... because I did not comment on the content which was all I did was comment on the content...it also said the rule were not to cmment on design or grammar and when I got comments on my website that was all they did was comment on my design and GRAMMAR !!!
Think the rules seem to be in favor of whatever or whoever ... Maybe the rules need to be posted by each LESSON!!!

Here is some information that may help you. A comment is different from feedback and I think there is confusion about that. Here is a link below to get you started: If you go to the search bar where it say "Hey yourname, search for help here...." and type in 'writing a good comment', other links pop up around this topic.

If the comments coming in on your site are not really comments, but feedback, you can disapprove as well so that is not on your site.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have other questions.

I appreciate your input but that still does not answer me on my site Health could be in the green and good and in less than 24 hours it's in the red and needs work

Things can change overnight though. I looked at my health yesterday and I dropped 10% overnight in one of my areas. The more you work on your site, the better the health will be overall. It will get there and before you know it, it will say your site health is "awesome". I think what the other person said about not worrying about it so much right now is best. Getting ranked, writing good content, etc. is the most important. Don't worry and don't let it hinder your progress with your site. You're going to be just fine.
