Unexisting Hubber

    I recieved a comment to one of my articles and wanted to see who is the person but it  took me not to the profile of Hubber but to another site. Means no such registred member. How it comes?

    The name was Valerie

      In your comment capsule you need to state whether you want to receive comments from people who are not hubbers. It's only normal that an ''outsider'' can comment on hubs.

    That's weird, did you try it more than once? Hmm...

    I think people who are not members of HP can comment and link themselves to another web address. Not 100% sure about this though.

      You are correct. I've gotten a few comments from non hubbers.

      I dont think so... Do you think its possible to post a comment if you are not registred?

      Yep, that's how it works.




      If a person allows anyone to post, not just members of HP, they can link to anywhere they wish.

      Log out and visit your hub where it has happened and you should see where you can add any name you want as well as a URL.

    I thought those pages had something to do with hubbers being banned? Maybe I am wrong.

    I've just signed out of HP and posted a comment to your fresh fruits in bed hub, entering a URL for my blog. I've shown up with a link to my name, Krys. Feel free to delete the comment, it was just an experiment.

      Yes, I just did the same and understood that anyone can post here comments... Means a lot of Spam... sad

        Not necessarily.  You want to encourage traffic from outside HubPages - you won't earn a cent from other Hubbers, because we don't click on ads.

        If someone leaves a good comment and links their name to their own website, that's fine - it's internet etiquette to accept it, provided the link isn't to some spammy website.  After all, you'll want to make comments on other blogs and create a link back to your Hubs, so it's only fair.

    I think in your account settings you are able to select if you want comments from non hubbers as well..

    When you edit your comments capsule you can opt whether you want anyone to be able to post, only registered users or only allow comments to be visible once you have approved them. This determines who can and can't post on your hub and if their comment will be visible immediately or not. This is a choice you make on a hub by hub basis. Non-registered commenters do not have to link to an email address at all as far as I am aware, they simply post, and that is it. Hope this has helped explain things better smile

    When I receive comments form non-hubbers, I always follow their link and see if I want to link from them. Many ARE spammers who post one or two words and then slap in their link to get the traffic.

    If I want to leave their link, then I will, but most often, I copy their link into my comment, say thanks, and then delete their original link. If it's a nasty site, I don't bother, to keep the comment -I just delete it.

    But SPAM is the main reason I always check the first check-box in the links capsule so that nothing is displayed until I have a chance to see it!

    I agree with Marisa that "If someone leaves a good comment and links their name to their own website, that's fine - it's internet etiquette to accept it, provided the link isn't to some spammy website.  After all, you'll want to make comments on other blogs and create a link back to your Hubs, so it's only fair."
