I have been to our WA website, the section on Requesting Website Comments. Can someone please explain how I can go about giving feedback to someone after reading their content. I mean, is there a systematic and consistent style that everyone should use as a guide?

Do I comment about such things as website layout, fonts, clarity etc. or I should focus on the subject of discussion/niche?

I guess it's a case of, comment in your own style about what you see. We all see different things on a site. I might be struck byt the colour, you might be struck by the text, someone else by thew layout. Just speak about what you see.

Are you referring to the SiteRubix comments and feedback areas?

If so:

Comments will appear on the website if approved and should pertain to the material on the website. and relevant to the content. There are instructions on comments under the "give comments" box. Give your opinions on what the post or page is about or ask a question about the topic. Above the comment box is an area to allow you to pick interests for the websites you will be commenting on.

Feed back is a critique of the actual website and is only seen by the owner. At the top is a statement stating what aspect of the website the author would like feedback on. Content, Layout, aspects of design, problems with links not working, spelling punctuation or other copy writing problems. In other words, positive comments and helpful criticism. Help them make their site better. There are instructions for feed back under the enter feed back box.

There is no set style other than a length restriction and appropriate and helpful content.

Hope this helps,
Pat

Thank you so much. Actually it's me to blame. I haven't been reading instructions to the end in the haste of getting things done. I didn't realise there are 2 separate sections: Request Website Comment and Website Feedback.

When I viewed my Site Health and noticed I ranked 0 % in terms of comments, I panicked. All I wanted was to get it sorted as soon as possible. But we all know it doesn't happen instantaneously, you have to earn credit first !

Zegu,

You can also ask for website comments in a discussion, by pasting a link to one of your posts or pages and offering comments in return.

There are two separate sections on WA that operate in a similar way - one is site feedback and the other is site comments.

Under site feedback you are often asked what kind of feedback to provide usually on- design, layout, navigation. Or sometimes you will be asked about a specific post for things such as grammar, style, areas to improve etc. In short read what is asked before commenting, and make sure you give the person something useful to work with. It can be things that work well, as well as what could be improved.

Site Comments is just for engagement - you engage with the article as a reader would and add information directly relevant to the topic that has been written about. This is harder and many people fail to understand the difference, but under this heading you DO NOT give anything about how the site looks or colour scheme etc.

Hope that explains a bit! - Marie
