SEO - Panda Alternative or Own Website - Who are Panda's Favorite Children??
There was mention of other writing website in order to help us with the new Google panda item but what is the best route?
If Google had favorites, what would Panda's top three favorite children be? Your own website, wikipedia, youtube?
Wikipedia is and will always be Google's favorite. Also, Google owns Youtube and uses it to store the large majority of ALL of the Google login information for all five million domains they own.
I'm not entirely sure what exactly you are asking though - Google definitely prefers a solid website with a solid linkbase to a hub, but you always have to know how to build those external and internal links to ever expect your site to make anything. It's also going to have to gain some maturity by existing for at least 3 months, so don't expect immediate results. I make way more money than I do on my website than I do on Hubpages, but I also have more articles hosted there, and my site has been nearly a year in the making now.
If you ask me, I would suggest starting your own website for a few reasons:
1. You can do anything you please with it in the future (e-commerce, newsletter, etc.)
2. People don't automatically assume your website consists of only an article and nothing more.
Just remember if you want to create your own website you have to know how to SEO or it just wont work at a level that is satisfying. Panda didn't change nearly as much as everyone on Hubpages thinks, I think many writers on HP were simply spoiled.
If your views aren't already coming from search engine traffic with your articles on HP, then you probably wouldn't have gotten a single view if you had placed them on your own website, so the community aspect of HP is a lot better to keep amateur writers encouraged, whereas a website is a great platform for an internet entrepreneur to really prosper.

Take a look at this article, it might help. I've got a few others on my Hubpages account about similar topics, so feel free to look into them and ask any questions I might have missed - I'd be glad to write a new hub.
Youtube is easily their favorite. They are going to bring in the new cosmic panda which is an updated Youtube and from what I see it looks like they will change the html attribute for the link going out to your website which means the link is dead (you seo's will know what I mean)
This will mean that it is likely the SERPS will go crazy when the switch is fully implemented and probably that millions of sites will plummet while Youtube will increase in popularity. This is only speculation, so don't take my word for it.
The problem is that we cannot own a Youtube account so you cannot control anything (just like every social network and blog) so the best thing is to spend most of your time making your own website the most powerful thing you have because you can really own and control your own website and you cannot control anything else. I have always taught this and in fact it is the main message of the website linked to my Hub. Take care my friends and plant your crops in your own backyard and use other people's property for "extras" but not as your main thing because you can only control what you have control of.

Were you affected by Google Panda's adjustment in August 2012?What can we do about it? It is a bit disappointing when my most popular articles have very few visits now.
