    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!

    Ouch.... thanks for your reply buddy!

    I should have blocked all that spam earlier but I was too busy with other things and somehow I thought it wasn't hurting too much my blog.

    Will put a captcha system in the comments right away!

    You've posted over 25,000 articles on a blog? How did you manage to do that?

    If you have 11000 legitimate comments ,then that's awesome.

    However if you have 11000 spam comments, that's horrible. Google will just see your site as a spam site. On top of that, I'm assuming that the 25000 articles aren't unique and written by you. As such, Google probably already sees your site as spam.

    However, thanks for the advices, I am going to stop all this spamming and backlinking on my blog. If I count the legit comments they are probably only a couple of hundreds :(

    So you are running a super spam blog with the help of some other users. I don't see it fit anywhere.

    it's a news collecting website (where i quote the source but keep the article on my site).. i have well targeted facebook pages and link articles of a certain category or tag in the proper pages.

    I get over 1000 visits a day and I just started a few months ago.. I never had expectation to be considered a "good website" by google of course, but I was just wondering if those backlinks were making it even worse for me
