Links to websites in comments section

    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. smile

    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... wink

      hmm  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.  big_smile

        You have 50+ hubs. I don't see how all of them can be on your profile page. I don't think they would fit. tongue But, it's your profile, do as you like. I just thought I would ask to see if it was done on purpose. With some people it is. wink

    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! big_smile  Here all this time I was wondering why HP had my hubs set so far down on the page. lol

    Thanks Cags.
