I've been writing on HP for about 11 months now. I've seen outside links in comments, and I automatically deny them. This time, however, I received a comment with a link to another hub "kind of" on the same topic, with an invitation to comment on that hub.
While I feel that this is bad form, I wanted to see what others think before I either deny it or reply. To me, it's the same as someone following me and asking me to follow him or her in return. What do you think?
I think this is against Hubpage rules. I'm not sure, but someone told me that it was.
If there is somewhat a relation of the two hubs and the other hub is of quality then you may just want to leave the comment on your hub and pay back the favor of a comment back with a link. However, neither link will give either of you link juice as last I checked the comments on HubPages are no follow.

If a visitor to any given hub makes a comment I believe that's a good thing. But what if that visitor leaves a link, usually embedded into their name, to another website or another hub. Thsi has happened a lot and...
