Should I use RedGage or Squidoo as a secondary site to compliment HubPages?
I checked on Alexa and RedGage ranked at 14782 versus Squidoo which ranks at 212. So will I make more on Squidoo since it ranks much higher?
I have used squidoo for about 3 years and I really like it.
Redgage is a good place to get backlinks, but not to earn money. I get a lot of traffic from Redgage, but the pay is pathetic. Squidoo is a better site to earn money. You can backlink there to your hubs too.
I would agree with Barbara. I use both, but redgage more is about just posting the links to get the backlink and some traffic, squidoo is much more along the lines of hubpages in that it is possible to write high quality content and actually be compensated for your effort.
Ofcourse the more high Alexa Rank, the more popular and more visitors to the website. The more visitors to the site, the more useful and complimentary for the members.
Alexa Traffic Rank: 14,702
Alexa Traffic Rank: 212
There is way too much difference in popularity in between these two websites.
Obviously you should go for Squidoo.
Have you considered Helium? It's less social, however you can still earn money from your articles.

Technologically, it is no match for HubPages really. Things don't align properly, the user interface is far from clear and you cannot put an item in a collection by editing it - you have to go to profile > collections > that collection > add item and then click done? Who came up with that?...

http://www.quantcast.com/hubpages.comNot quite time to get excited yet and the figures are still well down from what they were before the two slaps. But let's hope that it's the beginning of a longer upward trend, rather than just a blip.The fluctuating stats for one hubber are almost...

I'm not being funny here,the hubstats yet only change 3 or 4 times a week, if you are lucky.Not to mention hubs take over 24 hours to publish. No mentions about it on the blog, no apologies, it isn't like the issue hasn't been ongoing for a while now...Anybody have any idea? Hope I've missed...

There has been a lot of discussion in the last few days about HP changing the rules and people being un-featured or even un-published for spam and over promotional activity. So I just want to add my thoughts......Whether people (writers) like it or not most of their traffic will be coming from...

So far, thanks to the Idle hubs "feature", I have had my second month in a row where I haven't earned $50 through the HP Ad program... and these are the only 2 times, out of the history of me using HP Ads, that I haven't reached the $50 mark.Weren't the idle hubs supposed to help...
