    In WordPress post settings, I see a setting for Robots Meta "NOFOLLOW" -

    Check this box to ask search engines not to follow links from this page.

    Now it a good idea to turn this on? I'm interlinking and it is a whitehat site and I want to play by Google's rules.

    Also, I forgot to say about affiliate links, I do not wish to pass on some of my link juice by linking out to sites like Amazon.

    Cheers

    Sorry OP, I'm not looking for a speed-shag.

    That's not a WordPress setting, that's an All-In-One SEO plugin setting.

    You want Google to index your site. However, some people may select that noindex option for their category and tag pages because of "duplicate content". This type of duplicate content in considered non-malicious, though I've seen members here complain about their category or tag pages outranking their posts for their targeted keywords (keyword cannibalisation), which is why you might want to considered noidnexing them.

    Regarding your affiliate links, just add a rel=nofollow tag to them.
