Great information. I'll have to put some of your suggestions into practice.
Just kidding... Anything like the above that is generic I delete. I don't comment unless I have something SPECIFIC to say, and that's what I assume 99% of REAL commenters do toO. So if it's a generic "great post" or "good stuff" I say DELETE!
I don't know if those comments are all spam, BadCompany had a thread over the weekend asking what made people comment. Several folks said they were happy when someone left a small comment like "great hub," rather than leave without commenting at all.
I don't want people to think that I'm comment spamming so I always say more than that. So I don't leave as many comments
When I spam a comment it is usually because it comes from one of several hubbers who apparently have a list of comments that they continually copy and paste into hubs as they read them, and most of the time they don't relate to the hub (great advice! On a hub about why I like myself, for example).
I think you are being a bit unfair, sometimes I havent time but I like a hub so I would leave ashort enjoyed your hub, nice 1, wheras when I have time I will leave a longer comment, either way I like to show appreciation by a comment. As for spamming for reads, personally again I really dont worry about hub members reads, I am trying to attrack the direct traffic from google.
You aren't spamming, and that's not what (I think) we're talking about. I'm sure you've gotten a few of them too... Where the comment is only noticeably generic because of how much it doesn't apply to the hub in question.
For example, if somebody commented on your most recent hub saying "Cute boys!" or something similar. These comments just don't make sense!
Sometimes I like to leave a generic comment if I'm short on time and see a Hub worth driving some traffic its way. I guess if I thought someone just wanted me to fan them, I'd still leave the comment stand.
Of course, I get VERY few comments (>1% of my readers comment) so perhaps I would delete these if I was trying to reduce the clutter.
Im sure many questions relating to spammers have been raised before, but i will explain and ask anyway...I have recently had many of my hubs spammed by blatant spammers and i always delete these comments...I then...
This has probably been addressed elsewhere but I haven't found the answer yet. Is it ok to post a link to your own hub in the comments section to someone else's hub on the same or similar subject? I just...
Just interested in how many of you just read a hub and dont leave a comment. For me if i read something I always leave a comment but by looing at my reads I can only assume loads read but dont leave a comment. What...
I keep getting 4-5 spam comments daily from witches and spell casters that I would like to stop. How can I block them or stop them from spamming my posts. Its becoming like a job to keep deleting them every day.
When you receive a comment on one of your hubs, do you always post back with a comment? Or, just when there is something to post back about. For example if someone just comments that it is a nice hub, do I need to...
