    Are you copying and pasting text from elsewhere into your posts?

    Allow me to be clear about this WordPress.com does not ever embed links into blog posts. So if they are appearing in your posts you are the source of the links – not WordPress.com.

    Edit the posts and remove the links from them.

    Go to this page http://barbarasreality.wordpress.com/about/
    There are no links in the body text on that page.
    If you see any links at in the body text all on that page they are coming from a browser add-on, extension or toolbar that you may have installed in your browser. Disable all browser add-ons and extensions and let us know whether or not these links disappear when you do that please.

    The problem it seems was BING. It had some weird links and at least one was the same as i found on my articles…it took a while to get rid of bing but I finally did and the links are gone….do not know how Bing got on my computer but glad its gone.

    Thank you for helping me.
