Hello guys, I'm fairly new on this forum and I don't have much SEO knowledge or whatsoever... I have a simple question and I'm sure I can find the right answer here: Is receiving backlinks on your blog bad? I mean, I receive a ton of them. I have a blog where over the past 4 months I've posted about 25,000 articles, and in the same time-span, I received over 11,000 comments (99% of which being backlinks). I never cared enough before as I was focusing on other things to make my blog grow.. but now it's time I can focus and try to improve also the pagerank. Should I get rid of them and put a captcha verification for comments or is it really not that big of a deal? I was also thinking of removing WP comments at all and placing Facebook Comments instead, as most of my traffic comes from Facebook, but then I thought that it might be bad for my google search results. Thanks in advance, any advice is appreciated!
