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...

Hi, I received the following message in a comment left yesterday on my Hub about dog diapers (on PetHelpful site)I don't know if this article is useful thanks to the pop up that couldn't be removed covering half my screen asking me "How good is this article?" - counter-productive to say...

Look at one of your articles and check out the format for the Related Hubs. On mine it now looks like a list.

I am NOT 100% sure where to post this before anybody jumps on me! I personally would like to see the comments section of a hub precede the ads and the related hubs. It feels like our readers come in to read the information on our hub and then are tantalized by the ads and encouraged by the related...

In the past, from my profile page, in the hubtivity section, I could click "this comment" to go directly to the comment I previously posted on someone's Hub. Doesn't seem to be working now. Instead, I just get landed at the top of the destination Hub.It's a funny sensation. I keep waiting...

I have a lot of lengthy comments on articles with included relevant links added. My intention was to provide additional info for readers, but maybe Google doesn't see it that way. Anyway even though the text of the comments may help ranking, the only way I can remove links is by deleting comments....
