    Hello fellow hubbers. I would like to get a comment with a refferal link removed, a link that I am not allowed to promote any longer. I have contacted the hub's author already but she might not be active any longer.

    I need the link removed as soon as possible.

    Please advise.

      You have the control over any comment if it is in your own hub. If it is some other case, you can seek the help of hubpages admin by mailing to

    That's why it's good idea not to put refferal links in comments. I would have denied such a comment in the first place. I wouldn't worry too much about removing it, no one will click on it anyway.

    You will be amazed how many people actually use the power of commenting on other sites for traffic pourposes, links are very attractive for niche make money online. Anyway the link has to be removed as a rule sustained by the program it reffers to. I have contacted the team at hubpages waiting for a reply.

    Thank you

      It's also amazing how people will misuse and abuse that 'power'.

    I believe that when you leave a comment on some one's page - they own it.

    And I don't see why hubpages should or will do anything for you.

    Other than leaving a new comment on the hub, asking the author to deny the old one, I don't see any other way.

    I think this is a pretty straight forward thing it is an easy thing to do and I am just asking because I have to get the link removed. As for hubpages team I am sure they can help out, I have been advised in an earlier post on this thread to contact the team, otherwise I would not waste their time with this request.

    Well, you can choose to take whoever's advice you wish. My understanding is that it is the author's comment - and their choice as to whether or not to delete it.

    I do not think hubpages has the right to delete any comments on my pages, but I could be wrong.

    I don't think HP admin will or should interfere in this things. It should be the author's right to deny or allow the comments on his/her hubs.  Admin deleting or modifying comments on hubs without the knowledge and permission of respective authors doesn't look right and will set a bad presidency if it is done in your case. smile

    I do understand that the author has all the rights to keep his or her comments , I would not like my comments removed either, but I believe contacting the author and letting hubpages know my desire to remove the comment is the right way to do this. I do not see any other way though.

    Correct, the thing is that people dont really know the tricks in commeting on other blogs. Most of the blogs are nofollow meaning that link will not count to search engines, they will just ignore it. Page rank does matter here too. As for dirrect traffic from blog / site   comments, there is really no use to post comments on low traffic blogs or sites. I have also experieced low dirrect traffic from comments on a post with 50+ comments.
