Yes, your hubs here should be unique content. You can link to your website only if the content there is not the same as your hubs.
Write related content here then you can post a link, however you would probably do better to just post the link to your website in your profile because multiple links from one domain is not going to benefit you at all. Posting the link in your profile will save you from being flagged or being over promotional.
I have not had many issues with doing that. I create original articles on hubpages and then a few weeks later I will publish them to my website. There is only so much time in the day, and you can only write so many articles. A certain amount of reuse and republishing is the only thing that keeps the internet going. Now I would not link my article on my hubpages to the exact article on my site, but I often include a link to the main site page in the links section OR I will link it to a related site which then links to my main website.
It is my understanding that you can post duplicate articles on different sites, as long as you don't have links in the articles. The only problem about duplicate articles is you may not get as many hits as unique articles. What I did was hubs I first listed were from other writing websites. Now I am writing unique articles for each of them. For example, on hub pages I am going to concetrate on sports and Associated Content I write business articles. When traffic starts to die down for specific articles, then I will post them to the other ones. As well as AC, and hubpages I also write for Helium, Bukisa and Xomba.
That is actually not true. I received a message from the moderator that says you may post content that is also posted elsewhere including your own work on different sites but outbound links cannot be included.
You can do it, but if you do do it you are basically wasting your time, pretty much anyone in the SEO field will tell you that the real beenfits come from unique backlinks from high quality pages.
Remember Pagerank is a small factor in a much more important overall value which has been branded "Google Trust". If you link from a site with tons of duplicate content it will never gain any 'Google Trust' and the backlinks will never realy gain a decent amount of value.
That's only if the hub doesn't appear on any other blogging sites. When one of my blogs was flagged as overpromotional, and it does appear on other blogging sites, I removed all the links and it was republished.
