I have recieved a few comments from outside of WA and sometimes others will put a link to their products in their comments to me. Should I allow this link or should I edit it before accepting and posting the comment? I understand that if they are not relavent I would of course delete them or at least unlink the link. My question is - if the comment and link are somewhat relative to my site and not spammy - should I allow it? Thank You

If you are stating that the link is somewhat relative to your site and is not spammy, then it's your call friend. Keep in mind whether or not the link is spammy, the person is gaining.
Likewise, you might want to ask that person if you can put your link in their comment section also. If no agreement, then remove it from yours. In fairness, you both are trying to grow your business. You're helping that person and that person is helping you. All the best!

Sorry my bad.. this what happens when not reading properly.

My previous comment still applies but read on below.

If reader has left their comment (not spammy comment) and their name (signature or avatar) carries a link back to their site, then fine.

BUT if its a comment to your post with ANY affiliate link, then its pure spam, DELETE IT.

Personally I would never allow others to place their own affiliate links or links to their own products within my content comments. I do however allow links to informational type content as it adds value for my visitors and to my site.

In the end it is your call what you want to allow on your site. If someone is trying to redirect your visitors to their own promotions though, it certainly isn't helpful to you.

Best, Shannon
