I was reviewing the new comments on one of my articles, Live on One Income, when I noticed that instead of Approve/Deny, the buttons were Not Spam/Delete Forever. I clicked on the member's name to read his hub but was instead taken to a third-party website.
I am new on hubpages -- can clicking on a member's name lead to someplace other than his profile page? I do not want to label it as spam if it's an OK thing to do. There was nothing wrong with the actual comment.
Those comments are being left by people that are not members here. They create a name with anchor text links. No harm as long as the comments are relevant to your topic, if there is no relevance then you can delete it as spam.
External links in comments will be followed by a small arrow. That's the clue that the comments are from a HubPages member. Money can be made here, but generally not easily or quickly.

I was looking at my stats today and noticed one of my hubs (Why Has Being A Liberal Become A Bad Thing?) had a nice spike in views. Found the source of this spike was a racist website. Can't find the link in...
