Anyone has any idea what this site is doing with my site? It is doing a lots of things like ranking, passing its opinions etc. But I do not know nothing about it.

Is it go

Put www.wealthyaffiliate in and see - 100% safe. Use it to check any site I find am unsure of.
You have to put in your URL to search it. Did you?

Can they assess my site without letting me know?

They would have had to, to form an opinion. Anyone can access your site if they know your URL. Anyone can enter your URL to check your site for security.
Read the About us and their trust seal. They reveal sites not to buy from. Also they show the 10 sites everyday not to buy from.
As long as we do good business there is nothing to worry about since we are hosted by WA. As we know scam and fraud is all over the net with no legal way to remove them. Google has pulled sites. Reporting scammers and fraudulent sites and writing about them is what we need to do.

From what I can see it's a site that you can use to check a site's status before buying. It's not a particularly attractive site - white ads on an orange background (ugh!), however my site checker found nothing wrong with it.

It is providing some data like I have a short domain span that is not reliable which might have some negative impact on visitors.

I see many members are choosing a meaningless and some times very peculiar user ID. Many of the members also giving pet pictures and a lot of members are with the same pictures.

I agree with the opinion that a picture should be used...ha, see, I don't have mine yet. But I will.

Like Ski2823 said, no picture or a random one makes you look like you are hiding or not serious. I have heard Jay mention a photo of yourself looking straight on/with a white background is one good way to do it.

@Jenna7, yes Jay pointed to a right concept. If you look for big guys in tech world you will see most of them have a smiling face in their photos.

Branding is key. Am wanting to link my sites with my G+ profile which is in my real name, known professionally but not in IM.
My name used here and my pic are who I really am wanting to brand worldwide. A conundrum having yet to find a solution or ask @Rich. The question remains, what is in a name when good content and sincerity is attainable with my nickname known to most everyone - family, friend or colleague? Thank you, Willow Tech (aka ?) ^_~0035/8/4

@caylynn, as I learnt trust building is the most important thing in online business I am gradually shifting to it. I assume it is possible to brand both my logo and my name everywhere!

I agree.

My take on this is that if I see either a blank profile picture or just a random picture, it makes it look like you are trying to hide and you are not being serious.

I agree with Rich on the reason why some my not to choose to load a true pic of them selves at first.

You might use a logo instead of a picture. A happy or smiling face is customary.

Yeah, I could say that the horse I am on is Sky, but Sky is another horse of mine. He was my first horse. The one I am on is one of my Arabs Windy. But I wanted something that showed me and my horse that wasn't to much action for my profile pic.

If you like the profile pic to be branded, I think it is okay.

I think this is mainly because people signing up for the Starter Membership select one of the standard pictures rather than upload their own. This is understandable, they want to see what's here and whether WA is for them or not. I know one of the issues as far as user names is that with 100,000+ membership it's become a lot harder to create branded, friendly names, especially if people aren't keen to use their real full names, etc. Rich.

Thank you Rich for your comment. I think every body should know that it is important.

Most definitely have to agree with you. People are more keen to read posts from someone who seems professional and also who is recognized within a community or his/her field of work.

Keep up the good work and have a great day.

Actually I was talking about a more serious topic. In Online business the trust is the most important thing you need to succeed.

How would people know you? In Google+? In Facebook, LinkedIn? Why you pay 10 times price for a product? Why are you in the queue for 48 hours to buy a product?

All stems from trust. If people see your pet and it is likely that other people has got the same pic, where are you then?

To BRAND yourself you need a real good planning!

I completely agree. Great post!

Thank you. That inspiring. I am still wandering why nobody is talking about such an important issue?

When to use child theme in a wordpress site? Is it only for the advanced user or the developer?

Great question !

maryson

Thank you. Let us see what folks are telling us.

I agree with Rich too, you only need a Child theme if you intend on making custom changes.
I use child themes on some sites, just because I can play around and edit my css and theme functions without breaking the main theme. If and when the author updates the theme my changes aren't lost either, but if you have a backup it's not much of a big deal anyway.

Just wanted to emphasise, if you want to play around with CSS then you don't need a child theme. If you create a "custom.css" stylesheet, this will override whatever is within your themes "style.css" stylesheet and therefore any mods you make within "custom.css" aren't destructive, ie. they can always be deleted or changed without permanently damaging your themes "style.css". Rich.

Thank you.

I'd never recommend building a Child Theme unless you have a specific reason, such as intending to make a lot of changes within the php. Child Themes are not updated when the core theme is updated so they can become incompatible with updates to WordPress, plug-ins, etc. Rich.
