  1. Hey there Stephan,

    Yes, I agree, the more feedback you’re able to get, the better. The survey recommendation is great but it has to be convenient, comfortable and appealing to consumers in order for it to work.

    You know, I thought about Wealthy Affiliate as soon as you mentioned getting site feedback and then I saw it listed as your best resource. I am currently a premium member with the same online business community and their tool works — the large, random sample size gives me accurate results every time.

    By the way, I like your meme! A couple weeks ago, my partner asked me if I was done with my website for the day. I told her I will never be done! LOL.

    Sincerely,

    Roman G. Rys, MSW, LCSWA

      Thanks Roman!

  2. Wow, I didn’t know there were so many ways to get your website reviewed. I must agree that getting feedback is critically important for all pages of your site. I’ve gotten feedback on my own site and it’s improved a lot as a result of what people had to say about it.

    From my logo to content placement, there have been many things I didn’t give much consideration when I first started my site. Even now, I’m still seeking feedback on various things.

    If you have a website, getting feedback is a definite must!

      Great to hear, thanks Leo!

  3. I never knew there were so many different ways to get feedback for your site. Some of the methods described sound okay if you want Google to take notice, but maybe not so great if you are looking for constructive feedback, not to mention the expense for some of these services! Is the value really that great? The best feedback is always going to be through organic traffic (if you can get it, that is).

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Hi Daniel, I think the services offered by some of these more expensive companies can be worthwhile for larger, profitable sites but probably not for smaller niche sites.

  4. I completely agree with you. When it comes to feedback, it is always best to get it from a range of sources. I have had feedback from various sources including friends and family when looking to make my sites more appealing.

    I have also used the feedback section within my Wealthy Affiliate membership and found it to be most useful. Where have you gotten your most useful feedback from? Paid experts, friends and/or family or the WA platform?

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      WA for sure, Martin.

  5. This article helped me a lot. I was inclined to get an expert to give feedback on the content of my site but now I know that that’s not necessarily the best option.

    Your experience (and this is a first for me) as a Usability Analyst is evident in your article.

      Thanks Trevor

  6. Hey Stephan-

    First and foremost… great job on the article. Little did I know about the various tools and resources available to help get feedback on your site. Your site, by the way, is awesome!

    There is a fine line between a good, bad, and ugly website. What I mean is that some of the most unattractive websites get a ton of traffic… go figure!! But when all is said and done… it’s all about conversions. Is there a resource that can provide feedback to improve conversions?

    Thanks!

    Mark

  7. New feedback exchange alternative, year 2017: Usability Testing Exchange (UTX):

    https://usability.testing.exchange

    It’s free & open-source, and more fair than Criticue and others: you get back as much feedback as you give, counted in characters. So, if you spend lots of time writing a few paragraphs with feedback to someone — then you’ll get back a few paragraphs feedback you too. Instead of, at other places, just a single line, sometimes apparently just copy-pasted to everyone. But at UTX, people tend to give each other more detailed & helpful feedback. (I’m developing it.)

    Criticue launced in 2013 and I’m wondering if they’ve shut down now. They stopped accepting payments long ago, and now the website has been offline for fairly long.

    I’d like to recommend UserBob, I’ve tested it twice and it worked fine both times: inexpensive, and useful feedback.
