Another website had a survey they were doing as the type of comments people would accept on their blogs. The major question they were looking for is do people accept comments when people put anchor text in the middle of the posted comment.
Anchor text is the highlighted word or phrase that is then linked to another website or web page. Anchor text is important from an SEO standpoint as anchor text tells search engines like Google that the highlight term is important on the website or web page the link is pointed to.
Authority SEO will automatically delete comments with anchor text in them
The overwhelming response was that bloggers delete comments that have anchor text in them. This is also how I voted as Authority SEO removes all comments without even reading them if people put anchor text in. If a person puts anchor text in their comment they are attempting to get SEO value from their comment instead of continuing the ongoing discussion about the post or topic in hand.
For those who are attempting to engage in the discussion with comments on people’s blogs I would highly recommend that you don’t ever put anchor text into your comments if you want your comments to be approved.
