I know you are not supposed to link to the same sites more than once but what happens if in your comments section someone who is posting a comment posts the same link more than once in their message? To deny the comment is not right if it is relevant and it is not possible for the hub's owner to edit and delete parts of the text by someone who is leaving a comment, so what is the answer please? I have this as a potential problem in one of my hubs and the link I am referring to is central to the person posting's argument! I would like to include it in my article but it is already posted more than once in the comments.
As far as the rules go, links in comments don't count toward the total for your hub. They also all have "nofollow" applied to them, meaning they aren't of much use for the purpose of search engine optimization. So, for the most part it is up to you what comments you want to allow and not allow on your hubs.

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

Is it OK to put links to other hubs in the comment boxes?Sometimes I want to point a reader to another hub of mine where I know they will find the answer to their question. So is it over promotional to add a link to another hub of mine in the comment box. I have done it in the past and haven't had...
