I am curious. Is it smart to OK comments from others when their name is simply a link to their own website? I have been allowing them if their website seems to be a related subject...but am wondering now with all the Google changes if that is a smart policy. What do you do when faced with this?
People who post comments to your hubs and link to related websites, would be a good thing. So, I see no reason to stop it from happening. People who post comments on your hubs, who are not hubbers isn't a bad thing either. It shows your readers that other readers who are not hubbers actually leave related comments and links. I see that as a good thing also.
So, by my view, there isn't a down side.
I guess it depends on the comment. If it's simply someone parking a link on my page, I deny it. If a thoughful comment is left that indicated they most likely read the hub, and the link is helpful, I accept it... BUT that rarely happens. It's usually spam.
Hey Rebekah, did you do that purposely, with regards to the huge white gap in your profile? Just curious...
no.. but I don't like to have every hub I've written on my profile page. I know I don't read other profiles if they're too long.
hey I'll try making it smaller.
I didn't like the huge white space. I had a blonde moment and forgot it was in my power to move the cursor up to the end of text! Here all this time I was wondering why HP had my hubs set so far down on the page.
Thanks for your input. It makes sense what you have said. Appreciate the feedback.

In the past, from my profile page, in the hubtivity section, I could click "this comment" to go directly to the comment I previously posted on someone's Hub. Doesn't seem to be working now. Instead, I just get...

Look at one of your articles and check out the format for the Related Hubs. On mine it now looks like a list.

I am seeing more links to an outside commercial link in my comments section. Their business will be a related one to the Hub I wrote. When I check the profile: The Hubber has maybe one Hub written...

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment....
