Please advice if I should set 'Nofollow this link' or should I leave it as 'follow this link?'
If you are linking to a webpage that will make you money (such as an affiliate) you must use a NoFollow link. Also, if you are linking to a webpage that is not related to the topic of your Hub (like most photo credits), that link should be NoFollow, too.
Only use followed links that link to webpages which are relevant to the topic of your Hub.
The option is only available right now in text modules. When you click the icon to insert a link, you'll see the option to make a link NoFollow.

I write on food and cooking, and I'm often writing a hub and need to explain a concept about which I've previously written about. It would be simpler to simply link directly to another hub instead of repeating myself....

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a...
