Do you publish all comments on your hubs

    Im just wondering if anybody are also doing this; I have some few hubs making it to the front page of either yahoo or google. These hubs usually get many comments from people who want to make a hitch ride to my hubs my posting comments with links to their sites where they promote their products.

    FOr me it is not fair considering that I made all the efforts of researching and writing the articles and all these people do is to put their links to their site which is related to the topic.

    For this reason, I constantly check my hubs for any comments and delete those that posted comments only for the sake of marketing purposes.

    How about you guys, are you also doing this?

    Happy New Year 2010to all hubbers.

    That's exactly how I handle it. If someone disagrees with me, that's one thing, and I'll post those. But I don't post spammers.

    I've had quite a few spammers lately. I reported it and then deleted their backlinks as suggested by those wiser than me. I usually post the rest if they add to the hub.

    Hmm, two different groups handling the case differently.

    You may have a point that they took the time to visit and read your hub because they did it to promote their site...anyway, there are still chances that they get attracted to one of the ads in your hub and earn some few cents or a dollar from that click.

    Thanks for that view; but still, I belong to the other group that shall delete comments made for promotional purposes only. Unless the link showed useful information.

    For me, it depends. If they leave a legitimate comment with a link, I usually post it. If it's only a link, I delete. If it's only a word or two with a link, I delete it.

    I keep a firm rein on spam and off-topic posts, ie I delete that sort of stuff with little to no hesitation.

    I approve only comments that relate to my articles.  If it's spammers, then no.  If it's anything other than about the article, then no.  If it's negative, I use my own judgement.  smile

    Most of them... I had someone on my ableton live review basically say "ableton sucks, use this program... buy it here, and use my promo code". Denied... promote your code somewhere else, please!

    I've been getting blatant ads for comments, with no comments related to my hub whatsoever, so those I eliminate right away.

    I've been getting tired of deleting comments from people who self promote with a link to their site. So the other day I went through most of my hubs and changed the setting to only allow comments from registered Hubbers.
