I recieved a comment to one of my articles and wanted to see who is the person but it took me not to the profile of Hubber but to another site. Means no such registred member. How it comes?
The name was Valerie
In your comment capsule you need to state whether you want to receive comments from people who are not hubbers. It's only normal that an ''outsider'' can comment on hubs.
I think people who are not members of HP can comment and link themselves to another web address. Not 100% sure about this though.
You are correct. I've gotten a few comments from non hubbers.
I dont think so... Do you think its possible to post a comment if you are not registred?
Yep, that's how it works.
If a person allows anyone to post, not just members of HP, they can link to anywhere they wish.
Log out and visit your hub where it has happened and you should see where you can add any name you want as well as a URL.
I thought those pages had something to do with hubbers being banned? Maybe I am wrong.
I've just signed out of HP and posted a comment to your fresh fruits in bed hub, entering a URL for my blog. I've shown up with a link to my name, Krys. Feel free to delete the comment, it was just an experiment.
Yes, I just did the same and understood that anyone can post here comments... Means a lot of Spam...
Thank you very much to all of you who helped me to solve this problem.
Wish you a very productive week!!!
Not necessarily. You want to encourage traffic from outside HubPages - you won't earn a cent from other Hubbers, because we don't click on ads.
If someone leaves a good comment and links their name to their own website, that's fine - it's internet etiquette to accept it, provided the link isn't to some spammy website. After all, you'll want to make comments on other blogs and create a link back to your Hubs, so it's only fair.
I think in your account settings you are able to select if you want comments from non hubbers as well..
I get ppl who aren't on hubpages commenting sometimes...it's allowed
By the way welcome to hubpages!
When you edit your comments capsule you can opt whether you want anyone to be able to post, only registered users or only allow comments to be visible once you have approved them. This determines who can and can't post on your hub and if their comment will be visible immediately or not. This is a choice you make on a hub by hub basis. Non-registered commenters do not have to link to an email address at all as far as I am aware, they simply post, and that is it. Hope this has helped explain things better
When I receive comments form non-hubbers, I always follow their link and see if I want to link from them. Many ARE spammers who post one or two words and then slap in their link to get the traffic.
If I want to leave their link, then I will, but most often, I copy their link into my comment, say thanks, and then delete their original link. If it's a nasty site, I don't bother, to keep the comment -I just delete it.
But SPAM is the main reason I always check the first check-box in the links capsule so that nothing is displayed until I have a chance to see it!
I agree with Marisa that "If someone leaves a good comment and links their name to their own website, that's fine - it's internet etiquette to accept it, provided the link isn't to some spammy website. After all, you'll want to make comments on other blogs and create a link back to your Hubs, so it's only fair."

What's your take on jealousy among hubbers on Hubpages?I published a hub a few days ago. The hubscore started at 66 and has been doing great. Two nights ago the hub went to 91. A hubber left a comment on the hub - "How did you get that many followers?". The hubber did not say anything...

If HubPages ever has a focus group of selected hubbers I would love to be a part of it. They could do some regional focus groups (maybe start in Chicago for me) and really get some great input from a hubber's perspective on tweaks. I think HubPages is awesome. I was attracted to it by its clean...

This has happened to me a few times. I'll leave a comment or give an answer in the Q&A section... and I will get attacked (for lack of a better word) by some other Hubber who has a different point of view or belief than I do.It hurts, I mean hurts. There I am trying to be a good...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

What do you do when you have such a ridiculous comment posted on one of your blogs that you are really tempted to approve it, just so you can blast the reader?Okay, not blast...I've been thinking about "polite" responses I could add. Remarks that would make me look even better :-)When...
