The website field in comment form in blogs and CMS help comment authors to make a link towards there website / blog. This is a normal practice to increase traffic towards there website / blog. It help us and them because the number of valuable comments in our article is now consider as a measure of quality of content.

If the comments are valuable for that content and readers, there is a chance to get referral traffic towards the comment authors website / blog. But spammers always utilize this facility to make pure back linking to there website / blog using keywords in comments.

Any way we can easily remove website field in WordPress comment form if it is not necessary.
