Is it ok to put links to your hubs when you leave a comment on someone else's?
I've notice that some people made comments on my pages and along with the comment they left a link to their own page.
That's going to vary individually with each author that you leave a comment for.
Actually, it was other people leaving comments with links to their own hubs on mine and I wasn't sure whether to accept the comments or not. I didn't want to be rude and reject their comments without a valid reason.
You are free to approve or deny comments on your Hubs by whichever criteria you wish.
just leave the link in an email to them and ask them if they woudlnt mind you putting it in the comments, if the link is related its a good Idea however I'd rather have a link back to my hub include that persons code so they get impression traffic, its not fair if they dont, as for hoping they link to your hub in theirs because its related (encouraged becuse it helps promote both pages) just email/contact them on their profile page (non pulblic) and this skips the whole link in the comment issue.. if they are willing to put your link their I think theyd be willing to add your page anyway, so might as well have revenue connected to the traffic they send you I think part of the reason its not cool is theirs no revenue for the traffic iof you just put a link in.. one thing you could do is deny the comment, then email them saying I'll allow this link and comment if you rewrite it with a link that has my affiliate ID embedded (then reformat the link and put it in the email) this way both people win. what do you guys think? Compromise is the best policy.
it is technically o.k..
I wont normally publish those comments unless I have read the hub linked and it is information that I want associated with my own.
Personally i think its cheeky that people leave comments just to place a link!!
Thats just my feelings!!
when I leave a link on another hubbers page, It is because their hub is closely related to one that I have written, with the hope that the author of the page I have added the link to will add a link to their page from mine.
I delete comments that have links if the link leads to a page where the subject is unrelated,and nine times out of ten I will delete a link to a different website because there is enough spam out there without my pages adding to it......jimmy
I think we should ask the authors before leaving links on their pages.
I know that we can approve or deny a comment but it is nice to be asked if they can leave a link or not.
Chances are the person slipping in the link is just after traffic or a backlink.
If a person has posted thought provoking feedback that adds to or answers on topic and they have a link that is specific to the subject matter I will allow it.
But I won't waste time discussing it via email. And I don't contact people explaining why I've denied their comment.
Yeah I don't think its right to leave a comment with just a link to your own hub which is completely unrelated, if the two of you had an understanding with each other then fine.
Its like people who reply in the forums just to promote their hubs...they're shameless.
