What do you guys think about the Google Knoll?
Will it hurt HubPages' traffic?

If you have a hub and a Knoll then I would think that Google will favour it's own,so,more traffic to Knoll and possibly less to sites like HubPages/Squidoo etc.

That's an interesting stuff. I'll jump the bandwagon as soon as it's open to the public...
I dunno if they will all look like the sample, or if you can change the layout, etc - but the look was pretty unappealing to me. It reminded me of a uni textbook. Its not something Id read, and its not something Id want to create content with. My eyes glazed over.
Any complaints Ive ever made about hubpages being dully colored, etc - I take it all back!
As for favoring content, I'd think it's in their best interest not to screw with that too much, they do make zillions from adsense publishers as it is. Besides, that would kind of make them an unscrupulous monoply, wouldnt it?
Blogger, Youtube, Knols - whats next.. Google Jet?
LOL Isa, they'll die eventually, as every monopoly does... But while they are afloat, why not to use them to my advantage?
If Knol does materialize, it is one of the best places to market whatever you need to market. Even better than HP (no offense intended), just because it is Google...
That does not mean that I'm going to leave HP for Knol, though I market in a million of different places, this will be just one more, albeit one of the best...
Some of Google's new products have been successful (gmail) and others have not done so well (orkut). Google were successful from the start for providing the best search results.
Now the top search results are sponsored listings, wikipedia, some youtube, videos mixed in with some blogger entries.
Google needs to get back on track to what it is good at, or another new search engine will be just waiting to take over.
HP could also be a takeover target for Google if their own product doesn't work well.

Hi I just wanted to see if anyone has tried out Knol yet. I guess it is basically like Wikipedia but a part of Google so it is supposed to rank really well. Thanks,Jim10

http://knol.google.comI think it has similar format with hubpages.We can make knols like we make hubsWe can also monetize our knols with adsense.what do you think the impact of KNOL on hubpages?With this competition, I think hubpages should make new innovations that are not available on KNOL to...

Have there been any improvements on Knol? Is it still not indexing articles in their search? Are people still knolling? or do you think it is not worth it at this point?Thanks!

In his hub 'What We Don't Know About Google Panda?', Paul Edmondson points out that Google seems to expect sites to leap high above any bar that might reasonably be set for quality purposes.Paul seems less than happy with Google's attitude. He seems to think that if a page can somehow limp over...

I was reading the comparison that Edmonson wrote about HP and Google's product Knol and how the very same article had a higher ranking than HP. First kudos to Edmonson for researching and testing his hypothesis. When I went to research more information about Knol, I learned Google is...

Since the panda update, this might be a good place to try your luck out. Knol is owned by Google and gives you 100% share of Adsense impressions.Can anyone share some knol success stories?
