Forget just "conflict-free." Discover ethically sourced diamonds at C5 company."
The name Meghan was linked :
Which is another bloggers blog within the c5 company. I haven't yet approved the comment and I am not sure that I should? Although I can't really see what's wrong with it though either? Maybe you folks have some words of wisdom for me?
I would say it's a form parasitical spam. They are parasiting off of you to promote themselves. There is no reciprocol linking or sharing. I don't usually allow plugs to other sites unless they are truly useful and beneficial.
You'll get different opinions about this. Some hubbers delete any comments that have links in them.
If it's me - if the link is to a commercial site, I'd delete it.
If it links to somebody's blog or hub, and they are looking for a back link from a hub that is about the same topic but they are not selling anything directly - I go ahead and leave it. If it's tasteful and the topic is relevant to my hub somehow.
(I do this because back links can be hard to get, and I appreciate it when bloggers let me put my links on their pages.)
hmm, well it is relevant, it's a diamond company selling ethically sourced diamonds. However, I have no idea if she's gonna share the love.. or even how to begin to understand her blogging world lol. It seems like the blogs within the company. A diamond company.. whatev. I obviously have a long way to go before I get a firm grasp on different blog avenues. I think I'll just delete it..

This has been discussed a number of times, but I think it's time to bring it up again because lately I've been denying loads of comments that I view as spam. And, just now, I've been told by someone whose comments Ive...

I just had a comment in one of my hubs with a self-promotional link, which is against HubPages' terms of service. Of course I denied the comment. But then I went to that Hubber's profile and checked his activity. He had...
