    I found some comments awaiting moderation, but they are not comments.

    They are links to sites that have posted a link to my site.

    Am I suppose to select "Allow" or "Delete"?

    I can't seem to find direct documentation. If someone can point me in the right direction, that would be great.

    Thanks

    Odds are, they are trackbacks. If the sites look "spammy" I see no reason not to delete.

    Trackback spam is among the most common and annoying thing bloggers get to deal with. Are you running any antispam plugins?

    They're either trackbacks or pingbacks.
    Of course, they could be spam, too. Up to you if you'd like to allow them or not.

    Yes I have an antispam plugin, but it doesn't show anything. Maybe I have to configure it.

    Thanks for the help, I will read the documentation links.
