Should I allow links in my comments?
Some people like to place links to promote their websites or share information. I don't care if they do that, but can it hurt my SERP if I allow these links in the comments?
Depends...I removed a comment from a co-hubber with a link because I felt it was inappropriate and, was not quite related to my hub. You have to be the one who decides.
Links that are unrelated to your hub could hurt you. HubPages says that you should not put links in your comments, and personally, I do not allow links in my comments boxes.

You can ultimately decide if you allow URLs or not in your comments but sometimes they are worth having!
