A review of the status of my hubs in search engines, also reveals my commnts to hubs. Some of which I didn't mind sharing with the hubber, and of course those who mosey over to their page, but I never imagined that the comment itself can be viewed online without opening the hub.
I can't delete my comments that I think are a little personal. My only options are to change my avatar to one that does not show my image, or limit what I'll say. What are your thoughts?
Have you written hub summaries?
Usually, search engines will pull the hub summary from your hub to describe your site rather than the comments.
Each time that I return to HubPages to create another hub, I am finding something new or different. I noticed the hub summary tool, and yes I have created hub summaries for (2) of my hubs, but not all of them...yet.
It isn't my replies to comments left on my hubs, but rather comments by me on other hubbers hub. It isn't just mine, anyone who has commented on a hub; that information is out there in cyberspace just like the hub, and without viewing the actual hub.
Everything you do on Hubpages - including comments, hubs, forum posts and fan mail is public. Most of the net is like that and it's important to remember before sharing anything personal.
The only things not public are messages sent directly to another hubber via the contact link on their profile.
Izzy is right, when you have your summaries up..only summaries show up in search engine results. so get those summaries there..and deny those comments that you do not want others to see.
I understand that for my own hubs, and yes I need to get to summarizing. But my concern isn't for my own hubs, but hubs of other hubbers that I have commented on.
I'm not frightened or fearful of anything that I've said, but still had I known, I wouldn't have expressed as much as I did...I would have been just a little more cautious.
I agree with QuestMaster, the comments are crawled like the rest of the article. I just found this out...too. but I realize commenting is a big part of the internet as a marketing tool so search engines will show everything on the page including the comments. I would say whenever you make a comment be sure it's something you would want to share with the world and relevant to the topic.
Cardisa, it's an eye-opener for sure! While my comments are relevant to the topic, admittedly I have made comments that expressed a sentiment of a shared or personal experience, some of which I would have left out a thing...or two had I known! Let's just say...I ain't doin' that anymore!
I'm curious how it is that you cannot delete the comments(including yours) that are on your hubs?
I'm able to delete whatever comments I want from my hubs, including my own. Your hubs are in your complete control, which is one thing that is nice about HP. There's no time limit on deleting comments placed on your hubs.
There's a time limit on you posting comments on other people's hubs, but that's another story altogether.
I am not speaking of replies to comments that I've made on my own hubs. Again, I am speaking of comments made on other hubbers hubs.
Perhaps to better understand what I mean, just type your username into the search engine on your computer.

I recently read a hub about ouija boards. I would have liked to comment on the hub only it seemed I couldn't because I wasn't a fan of the author. I don't intend to become a fan - not being exceptionally choosy here - just didn't agree with the philosophy behind the hub - but I would...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...
