I am curious. Is it smart to OK comments from others when their name is simply a link to their own website? I have been allowing them if their website seems to be a related subject...but am wondering now with all the Google changes if that is a smart policy. What do you do when faced with this?
People who post comments to your hubs and link to related websites, would be a good thing. So, I see no reason to stop it from happening. People who post comments on your hubs, who are not hubbers isn't a bad thing either. It shows your readers that other readers who are not hubbers actually leave related comments and links. I see that as a good thing also.
So, by my view, there isn't a down side.
I guess it depends on the comment. If it's simply someone parking a link on my page, I deny it. If a thoughful comment is left that indicated they most likely read the hub, and the link is helpful, I accept it... BUT that rarely happens. It's usually spam.
Hey Rebekah, did you do that purposely, with regards to the huge white gap in your profile? Just curious...
no.. but I don't like to have every hub I've written on my profile page. I know I don't read other profiles if they're too long.
hey I'll try making it smaller.
I didn't like the huge white space. I had a blonde moment and forgot it was in my power to move the cursor up to the end of text! Here all this time I was wondering why HP had my hubs set so far down on the page.
Thanks for your input. It makes sense what you have said. Appreciate the feedback.

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...

I'm seeing many comments on my articles that include a link to a website/blog. I don't usually approve such comments if the link is unsafe or unrelated to the topic discussed in the hub, but I notice that on several websites the comment section would allow visitors to leave their web link. Is it...

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

Several followers have let me know via email and otherwise, that they are unable to post a comment on my new hub! One even said that I could copy and paste her comment via email into my hub, which I tried and all it does is take me back to the top of my hub. Please HP Team help me...

Is it OK to leave a link to one of your Hubs in the comments section of another persons Hub?Is it OK to leave comments on other Hubs with a link to your Hub if you think that your Hub is related?

One of my hubs got a comment which seemed like a sales pitch - it's a link to a specific product. Should I allow it? Thanks.
