Someone left a good comment on my Hub and also dropped a link to their site. The site is right on point with the subject and looks like quality. I would like to approve it, just wondering how Google sees it, whether it's treated as spammy or rewarded. Don't remember the deal with links in comments. Thanks, everyone.
It's mostly a link from the person running that website. If it really adds to the hub and is related, there's no reason not to approve it in my opinion. It's definitely going to be no-followed anyway.
Thanks you for the help Brandon. Just curious, when the link is clicked am I still getting the pageveiew time still or have they technically left my page at that point?
They have left by then.
But the person would only reach the comments section after they have read your hub. Most people are never going to even look at the link.
I've had a link only added as a comment to my hub https://caloriebee.com/diets/Healthy-Chicken-Curry and wonder if that is OK? There is no place for me to allow or deny the message, whereas the other comment I had to approve. As a newbie, I'm wondering about this. Seems similar to the question here so any help please?
I just checked it out..looks spammy no other text or profile picture. I would axe that. Should be a little deny button there no?
I just looked at it. That its definitely spam and you need to remove it.
You have to log onto Caloriebee in order to delete the comment. Same user and password as you use for HubPages.
You also should change your comments settings to not allow comments to be posted until you moderate them. Click "Show Settings" on your global comments page.
Didn't realize there was setting for comments I though you just moderated manually was the only setting. Thank's for the help Glenn.
Thanks but no! there was for the other one! Can I report it somewhere?
Yes perhaps shoot an email to the team. You can wait a little as well someone from the team will probably hop on and address it. They are good about stuff like that in the forums.
Thanks, logged in on there and there were the buttons! Reported as spam, thanks very much guys.

This has probably been addressed elsewhere but I haven't found the answer yet. Is it ok to post a link to your own hub in the comments section to someone else's hub on the same or similar subject? I just found such a post in a comment on one of my hubs and don't know whether its a good...

we all know comments effect mind of new readers who are unknown to our previous works, now the question is will you approve bad reaction of your readers on your hubs?dont you think people should know fair things about your hub not only good things but also other kind of responses?

What does it mean when your comment does not post immediately on a hub but you can see that others do? Is it related to the "accept or deny" buttons in the comment section on our page? Seems there's another level of regulation I'm missing because it doesn't happen every time. Some...

It there a way we can allow comments and at the same time "Disallow" the hyperlink? Especially for the non-members of Hubpages.Sometimes the comments are OK to allow, but I may not want the link on my page, especially when multiple links on multiple hubs are the same. I know I could...

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. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...

I am curious what you think about people that post links to their other sites (hubpages or others)?I have been getting lots of comments but that have links to my hubs, and it seems they are trying to promote their stuff on my pages. I am curious what you think about this and others as well....
