Matt Cutts: Should I correct the grammar of comments on my blog?

Video transcription

Today’s question comes from Chicago, Illinois.
Mr. Mortini asks, “Should I correct the grammar on comments to my WordPress blog?
Should I not approve comments with poor grammar?
Will approving comments with grammar issues affect my page’s quality ratings?”
So I wouldn’t worry about the grammar in your comments.
As long as the grammar on your own page is fine,there are people on the internet,and they write things, and it doesn’t always make sense.
You can see nonsense comments on YouTube and other large properties, and that doesn’t mean the YouTube video won’t be able to rank.
Just make sure that your own content is high quality.
And you might want to make sure that people aren’t leaving spam comments.
If you’ve got a bot, then they might leave bad grammar.
But if it’s a real person, and they’re leaving a comment and the grammar is not slightly perfect,that usually reflects more on them than it does on your site.
So I wouldn’t stress out about that.
