I have several pending comments I have not approved because I am uncertain if the external links they have will help or harm me.
HELP! What is recommended?
I don't even know where to look.
you can approve if they are relevant. It will not harm you.
They are nofollow anyways.
I wish we could strip html from comments anyway.
I never post links in other peoples hubs, their are many other options which provide better traffic
I never approve spam links or those ones where you cannot see the url destination in the browser frame.
I've been getting quite a few of these myself. Unverified users; i.e. People not part of the Hubpages community. They make comments and then leave a link to their site. I don't see anything wrong with that. I do look at the site to make sure it's not pornographic or illegal, then, if the comment will raise the value of my Hub for other readers and in the search engines, I approve it.
I asked a similar question some time ago and generated some good discussion. Here are links to a couple of the comments. You might be interested in reading most of the forum thread.

Quite often these comments are automated. It is a form of piggy backing, but then if they are valuable or is relevant to the article, I will very occasionally approve them.
Thank you very much!
Aficianda, I remember the question from before - so glad to have the links - didn't mean anything to me at the time.
Each answer was a world of help.
You're very welcome.
I'm the same way - I'll remember a comment or discussion, but it won't mean anything to me until weeks or months later. Then it's hard to find.

HubPages recently started removing comments they consider of poor quality in an attempt to make Google happy. Many of the removals make sense, but there are other cases I disagree with. Are we allowed to approve...
