Now I'm getting some from more closely related sites but the comments are still rubbish. In a way I consider these even worse because they're from competing sites in my niche.
So what's a common-sense policy for comments? On the one hand, it really takes comments to make a blog dynamic and interesting but I figure outgoing links, especially to sites in the same niche, are just leeching away my page rank.
Should I consider all comments with links to be spam? Is a comment that genuinely contributes to my blog - but with an outgoing link - ever worth giving away the link?
Wordpress does not appear to tag comments "nofollow". Can I add it manually and would this solve the dilemma?
Thanks for any tips on this.
