Adding Facebook Comments to Blog

I followed the instructions here:

Note the following:
- you need a verified Facebook account (add either your mobile or a credit card to your profile)
- if you just copy/paste everything, you'll end up with a big, ugly image promoting that site

For just the comments without the image, paste this instead for the last part:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<script src=''/>
<div><fb:comments width='450' expr:title='data:post.title' expr:href='data:post.url' expr:xid=''/></div>

Now, I applaud the guy for putting up an easy guide to implementing this, and I'm gladly providing a link back to him at the top of this post.

But links to his site on every post that uses the comment system? Yeah, smells like SEO garbage.

Updated: If you change your template, you have to repeat the process again as I just found out.
