Is it better to write for HubPages or Squidoo?


Recently, I've heard a lot about Squidoo being possibly better than HubPages in many aspects. Which do you think is better to write for if you're looking for traffic and earnings?

    Thank you for your feedback Stephanie. I've not tried Squidoo before, so I can't really make a comparison, but thanks for your insight into how Squidoo might be. I agree that HP's article presentation formats do seem neat, readable and easy to manage

    Thanks for your feedback Judi Bee. Yeah, I noticed both websites' rankings and traffic have fallen recently. At this point, it seems that traffic-wise, HP might be better than Squidoo, but we'll see how things go in time to come.

    Thanks for your reply Denmarkguy. Yeah, I noticed the recent decline too. I guess you're right, it really depends on the quality and originality of the articles, but I admit I've not been using outside sources much to get traffic. Should work on that

    Thanks for the feedback Barbara. If that's the case, then it would be better to stay in HP. Starting your own website is good too, but from experience I find I'm somewhat getting more traffic from HP as compared to my own blog in Blogger.com.

    Thanks for your feedback lovebuglena. From my experience, HP does approve your articles for featuring easily and quickly (within a few hours at average for me). Have never tried Squidoo before, but thanks for your insight into how Squidoo works.

    Thanks for your feedback Rudra. We'll see how HP fixes this and if things improve from here.

    Yes, what you write is one thing but how it is protected - or used - is another.

    Thank you for your feedback Jlbowden. I've not tried Squidoo before too, but was considering moving all my articles there as well if it is truly better than HP, or I might consider distributing some of my articles there as well.

    Thanks for your feedback Tricia. If that's the case then it would clearly be better to stay in HP. At least I still get some small earnings from my hubs just from views.

    I agree that you shouldn't have to edit them so often just to maintain their approval statuses. Articles should be allowed to grow on their own for some time at least, with maybe some editing from time to time. Thank you for your feedback nafretiti.

    I totally agree with the way Squidoo sounds - plus the way it looks at you.

    Thanks for your reply erorantes. I've never written for Squidoo before too, but just wanted to hear feedback especially from those who have. I guess just like what you said, patience and perseverance are most important.

    Thanks for your insight into Squidoo Troy. I've been hearing more or less the same thing from others who have tried Squidoo before as well. At any rate, HP accepts and features articles much more easily and quickly.

    Thanks for your feedback the clean life. I've never written for Squidoo before too, but heard quite a few comments about it recently. Was considering moving some or all of my articles over there, but I wanted to hear what others have to say first.

    Thanks for your reply The Examiner-1. I've done my research, but like what you said, I've been confused by the conflicting opinions from two sides of the divide. Hence, I wanted to hear as well from those who might have tried both before.

    I got the same research for Bubblew as I said for Squidoo in my previous answer. I do not have experience with it because Hub Pages showed up for me on a legitimate job search and I have been with them ever since.
