Can unmoderated commnents affect my search page rank? (1 post)

    I have 4 new websites (2 months old), all optimised for 1 specific keyword phrase. 1 of the sites is on page 2 of Google and the comments on the blog are all unapproved. The other 3 sites are nowhere in the top ten and the comments are mostly automatically approved on these 3 blogs - a lot of spam. Is it coincidence or can all these comments affect my standing in the eyes of the great and mighty G? I am relatively new to wordpress, so forgive please if this is a naive question, I have researched a bit but cannot find a definitive answer. My SEO is VERY specific and the keywords for all 4 sites have roughly the same competition.

    Also, related to this, I have set comments to appear only if approved on one blog but they still appear automatically?

    Otherwise WordPress rocks.

    Tx in advance
