I am frustrated by HubPages inconsistent rating policy and failed ZZZ program. Because of this I am looking for another writing site. Currently I am leaning toward Squidoo and would love to hear people’s feedback about their site or other similar HupPage sites. Particularly earning programs and article assembly features.
For me, the difference is all about that grubby and sordid bottom line. I find Squidoo to be aggravating and buggy at times, but it brings home my bacon. My earnings there are 15 to 20 times greater, with 4 times the number of articles.
Squidoo has its own rating system and quirks. If your articles aren't updated for a while, don't get much traffic, and don't get many sales or clickouts, they sink in rank, and may eventually fall into a WIP status that's equivalent to Zzz on Hubpages. (However, Squidoo does NOT noindex new articles, so you can get search traffic immediately.)
I never quite figured out how they create an article using Squidoo's softwares. Wizzley makes sense.

I am new to both but just wanted to say that I am very much impressed with HubPages. I put up some stuff there first and then found out about this site. So, I put up a few things here as well. The difference is incredible. Both sites are relatively easy to negotiate and...

After over a month of careful watching, here is what I have observed as an HP writer;1- My "reads" on HP are steady at 400+ daily.2- Google (US, AU, NE, UK, CA, etc) have all but abandoned my articles with a dramatic decrease in Google Traffic. 3- All of my other sources of traffic are...

Iris Draak rote a hub about the Demon of Banality. Her hubs and the comments it received, got me thinking about whether or not HubPages is appropriate for a discussion of serious issues or if that the road to oblivion.Recipes, crafts, and humorous essay appear to do very well. Can a writer be...
