Site Comments – The Latest Tool From The Wealthy Affiliate

site comments thumbnail 2.0 Just a heads up this is an updated review of SiteComments. Wealthy affiliate has done some fantastic upgrades to this already great platform.

This is SiteComments 2.0.

By now you should be aware having engagement on your website (comments) is a huge boost to your sites overall SEO score.

Comments have such an strong influence on a websites ranking that a site with less content but with lots of engaging comments can gain and keep top rankings in the search engine for a very long time.

But here’s the problem. Even with great content it still can be hard to get great engaging comments on your site.

So what can you do?

Well one way is to take advantage of a tool that’s available to premium members of Wealthy Affiliate, and it’s called Site Comments.

So What Is Site Comments?

Site comments is a commenting platform is exclusive to wealthy affiliate. And it’s the only platform where you can get real comments from real people that are interested in your website.

Not only that you can track the progress of your comments you can build your own unique comment profile and get ahead of your competition.

So How Does It Work?

The site comments platform is a pay it forward platform, where you earn credits to get comments on your website.

You simply offer comments on the sites that you’re interested in. And for every 2 comments you offer, you earn 1 credit. In other words you earn one comment.

Simply put…

“You Offer Comments – You Get Comments” 

So if you want to have 25 comments on your website, you simply comment on 50 peoples websites. There is no limit to the amount of credits you can earn. These credits can then be used to get comments on your own site on specific pages or posts.

All you need to do is spend a few minutes everyday commenting and earning credits and over time you’ll definitely see the benefits of your hard work. And because of the pay it forward platform you’ll also be helping out a lot of other wealthy affiliate members.

What About The Quality?

Quality and uniqueness is a top concern. So to ensure all the comments meet these quality standards every comment is checked for quality and for uniqueness before it is even sent to you for your final approval.

And besides who has the time to check every comment making sure it’s hasn’t been copied from somewhere else. So gone are the days of getting comments that have been copied from other sources. The Site Comments platform does this for you.

And all these comments are spam free, there are no links to promotions or anything like that. Just pure content.

Everything Is Filtered By Interests

Within wealthy affiliate there is a public comment thread where you can ask for comments on your latest posts. The rule is you need to comment on 3 people’s sites before you ask for comments.

And for the most part this works. What I mean is, someone may leave you a comment and ask for one in return, but sometimes the post you’re asked to comment on can be a subject you know nothing about or have zero interest in.

So this can be a challenge sometimes.

But now with Site Comments everything is filtered by interests. You simple choose your interests and the system will match your comment requests with those interests.

You’ll also get the odd email giving you a heads up that a fellow member is requesting a comment on an interest you marked off in your SiteComments settings.

Now you’re going to get much better quality engaging comments on your site. Thus giving your site more authority and providing more value to your visitors.

Request Comment Types (2.0)

Within the SiteComments platform you can specify they type of comment you want. You have 4 options when it comes to this feature. You can choose what applies to you which only may be 1 option or all 4.

With the ability to specify the type of comment you want allows you to give better direction to members of what you are after.

All Comments Are Personalized 

Don’t you find it annoying when you get a comment and all you see is that faceless gravatar. I certainly do. To me this is just empty communication, I like to put a face to the person I’m talking to.

So to eliminate this faceless commenting Site Comments requires you to have a real gravatar in order to use the commenting platform.

I love this because a site filled with faces from commenters adds more personality to your site and make your site more meaningful and creates a better connection with all your visitors as well as the other commenters.

Within the Site Comments system you can have different gravatars you simply need to have a different email address for each one. And you set these different gravatars at Gravatar.com.

You’re In Control Of Your Comments Distribution

This is a very cool feature of Site Comments. You have the ability to do the following:

  • The website in which the comments go
  • The page/posts in which the comments go
  • How many comments you want
  • Interests the person that offers you a comment
  • Time distribution of comment

With this level of control you can have comments placed on pages or posts that have few comments. Or even a page or post that has not been active in some time and get them revved up again.

You’ll Know When You Have Comments (2.0)

It’s easy to forget that you’ve requested comments from others or to leave comments for others. Well now you don’t have to worry about that, SiteComments has a little popup window that will appear reminding you that you have some pending requests.

This level of notification will keep on top of all of your comments thus maximizing your response to comments and getting them published onto your website as quickly as possible. As well as providing comments allowing you to earn more credits.

Comment Boost (2.0)

If you’re offering a lot of comments to other members you can now boost your comment request within the site comments queue. And the more comments you leave the more you get.

site comment boost

Here’s how it works:

For every 10 comments you offer to other members within a 24-hour period you’ll get all your comment request added to the priority queue. So that means you’ll get comments that you registered faster.

So if you want to offer 30 comments within 24 hours you’re the would put your requests in the comment boost priority queue for the next 72 hours. Now you’re having your requests displayed to the other site comment users at a higher rate.

Now you can be rewarded with the opportunity of getting your own request for comments faster.

Become A Certified Commenter (2.0)

You can now earn revenue as a commenter. By maintaining a certain criteria as a commenter you can now earn credits that you can put towards SiteComments or SiteFeedback. Each credit is worth .50 cents.

site comment certified

So by maintaining your status as a certified commenter you will be paid as a commenter for the comments you’re offering and you can. And these credits can be exchanged for USD and that’s done through your credit dashboard.

Becoming a certified commenter is based on a 30-day history.

  • Minimum of 50 comments offered
  • Minimum of 80% approval rate
  • Maximum of 20% skip (not interested) rate

You could earn hundreds of dollars each month by simply offering comments to other each month.

Everything Is Streamlined For You

You can manage all of your comments right from inside the management area within your wealthy affiliate members area. No need to log into your website like you normally do when reviewing, replying and approving comments.

As soon as you approve and reply to a comment within the management area inside wealthy affiliate it will be automatically posted to your website.

  1. Hey Leo,

    This was a very enlightening article. You really opened my eyes about something on WA that I can use to increase the chances of making money with affiliate marketing.

    I had seen the words “Site Comments”, but hadn’t done anything about them. I’m going to learn more about it and start giving and getting comments.

    Thank you very much,
    Don

  2. Hello Leo!

    Your post is very good! I am in training now with the Wealthy Affiliates. And I am trying to use the SiteComment tool and I am having a hard time using it.

    Maybe you can tell me what I am doing wrong. I have been viewing the page that is requested to review and then I am going back to the Site Comments area to leave a comment. And I keep getting this red message stating that I need to view the page first before I can leave a comment.

    Well, that is what I have done – I reviiewed the page. Do they want me to leave a comment on the webiste first and then come back to the WA site comments area and leae another comment?

    If you can help me with this, I would truly appreciate it!

    • Hi Ramona, sorry for not getting back to you right away, we were on an extended fathers day outing.

      In regards to site comments this may be the reason:

      You need to click the “View the Page” button first. This proves that you are actually going to the review to read it. It prevents people from trying to just drop comments without actually reading the material of the website.

      Hope this helps

  3. Hi Leo,
    I really like the new site comments tool. I’ve been using it and have been giving and taking quality, value-adding comments. WA hit it out of the park with this one.

  4. Hi Leo,

    I have been waiting on the new site comments feature for quite some time now. I was so happy when Kyle finally released this nifty tool. He’s been hinting around about it in a few of his blog posts and even told me about it a few times in my PM’s to him.

    I have been using it quite frequently and I absolutely love it. So far I have only had 1 comment that I felt wasn’t relevant to my post and that’s what the disapprove button is for.

    It hasn’t happened since and I have been showing other people how to take advantage of this brilliant addition to the high quality tools offered at Wealthy Affiliate.

    Thanks for your in depth look at what’s achievable with the “site comments” feature and for keeping us up to date with everything going on over at WA.

    Cheers

      This new feature is going to propel so many members online business to huge levels. I’ve said it so many times and I know I will be saying it a lot more.

      Kyle and Carson’s focus is on giving every member the tools they need to succeed online. All someone has to do is put things into action and there is no telling how far anyone can go.

      I wonder what cool tools they have in the works we don’t know about yet?

      Thanks for dropping by

  5. Hi Leo,

    I have started using the Site Comments tool at WA this week. I think it is going to be a very positive influence for members. I am yet to request comments for my site, but I have earnt 3 credits so far!

    I have found that some of the comments I was receiving prior to the introduction of Site Comments were of very low quality, and frankly I didn’t not even publish them on my site.

    Engaging with your audience is critical to the success of any business, and that is the great thing about having quality comments on your site.

    I would like to know more about the time distribution of comments. I usually just approve them as soon as they come in. So I might publish 5 comments in a day, then none for a week. Is it better to spread them out?

    Cheers,
    Brad

    • Hi Brad,

      I’m with you I think this is going to be a real game changer for a lot of the members who were struggling with getting quality comments.

      And you’re right some of the comments that you get through the community comment sharing thread are can be pretty weak. I’ve provided great comments and have received one line comments in return. I simply make a note of that comment that was returned and just don’t comment on that person’s site any more.

      Some may think it’s harsh, but I don’t. If I’m giving you a kick as engaging comment and all you can return to me is as a lame ass comment like “great article” – then why would I every want to comment on your site again?

      As for scheduling I can see how it could be used for adding content to your site everyday. So for example I post 3 times per week, I get comments on my post days, so I could schedule comments to appear on my off post days – thus having content added to my site everyday of the week.

      Hope this answers your question.

      Thanks for popping by

      Cheers

  8. Great post,

    It seems as such a powerful tool and looking at it now, thinking about it, it seems so simple and efficient. By this I mean if you do something, you will get something in return, It’s all up to you.
    And I see it as a super circle where everything you do, comes back at you.
    I especially like the interests filter and it seems like an awesome feature.
    Overall a great post, all the features are thoroughly explained and make sense in a perfect way,
    Keep it up,

      This is what I like about this commenting tool. Not only is it going to help your overall rankings in the search engines. But it’s a pay it forward platform.

      It’s a win – win for everyone that uses it. And I’m with you I love the interest filter. This makes giving and getting comments so much easier.

      Thanks for poppin by.
