Will Hubpages be taking over and continuing running of Squidoo's CDN?
No, images in imported lenses have been copied into our own system and will be hosted at new URLs. We may redirect images from the old squidoo cdn URLs, but not necessarily to the exact same size image.
Hi Paul and Paul. Say, you have made me wonder about some issues I was seeing with my Squidoo content being lifted previously. There was a lot of hotlinking to my images on my Squidoo lenses and often I had removed those images from the active Squidoo lens, but they were stored on the backend - probably as Paul #1 states, the CDN? Will you be able to finally remove those images that were no longer in use on live lenses? And, what about those lenses that were deleted prior to the transfer?
I believe Julie that as of 1st October (or soon after) Squidoo will pull the plug on everything, so anyone pointing at your old images on Squidoo will get an image not found.
All of my lenses are already in Google with their new Hubpages addresses, and my traffic on Squidoo is zero, so I think very soon anything that links back to Squidoo will cease to work.
Tony, that will be a mixed blessing to finally not see the deleted images from our lenses appearing in other people's work who were hotlinking! Hopeful.

According to Paul Deeds' forum post, transfers of articles on Squidoo are beginning today. Has anyone had their account transferred yet? If so, how did it go?http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/123836? … ost2621573

Curious if it is worth your time, I ran across info on it and didn't know if we could benefit from it.

Fellow Squid refugees, as many of us come to the end of our first full month on HubPages, I'm wondering how those edits are coming. What's been your process for slogging through the old lenses, to turn them into shiny new hubs?

I also have squidoo account, but I will prefer to write more articles on hubpages. Not only that I found it more convenient but its also has high ranking than squidoo (based on alexa.com). And it does matter to me. How about you? What do you think is the best, hubpages or squidoo?
