I don't know why I have never asked about this before, is there a way to approve all comments or could we request an approve all for comments? I average around 8-10k views per day with countless comments, I am just saying it would be helpful.
I do try to respond to comments as much as possible but after the first 20 or 30 it becomes rather difficult to approve all of them. Perhaps I just don't know how things are done even after 5 million views
Problem is..comments have to be moderated. Sloppy drivel irrelevant comments (not saying you personally get bad comments) now affect Google rank...I thought Hubpages now was using that crowd sourced labor site that auto approved comments..
That option is available on your Account page under Comments. Click on Global Comment Capsule Settings, choose "No" for "Comments must be approved before they appear".
Ah, I didn't even think about the Google results. I will have to take a look at that. I like seeing them and approving them, but then again when I get 200, I don't have time to read all of them.
HI Ashleign - First of all may I compliment you on your photo. Not sure if it's actually you or an avatar but very lovely. Also not sure if this answers your question but when you first sign in to Hub, next to your photo is a listing - Comments, Articles, Profile. If you click on Comments, there's a drop-down menu whereby you can control what you need. Hope this helps and by the way, congrats on all those page views and comments, you are very blessed:) Have a great day!
Wow Lori, you have actually learned much about HP in a short period of time. When you were very new, I remember you were upset about capsules and how to use them. Now you have given an excellent advice. Good job. Proud of you
Yes, reading the comments here helped me get going quickly. The forum is very useful. Thanks HP community.

The approve or deny button..what is required?Does one's comment need to be approved before it can be seen? Or can it be seen until it is denying by the author? This is kind of like the "why ask a question and...
