    Looks like spam to me. Some of the cleverer spam bots try to scrape words from your post content and use those words in their comments in the hopes that you'll approve it. But the end result is either ungrammatical or too generic to look like a real comment.

    If you don't have the Akismet plugin running, I'd recommend activating it. It tends to handle 99% of these comments.

    Are you linking back to your own posts? That could be a self-pingback.

    yep... but what does it means in this case ? do I need to approuve them ?

    Since they only have marginal SEO benefit, it's entirely up to you whether you approve or delete them
