For you, after hubpages, what is the best place to publish your content and why?
None . . I've yet to find another site that is as user friendly as this one. I detest Squiddo totally confusing for me, Triond causes me brain damage.
I have started using Xomba but do not spend as much time on it as i do here because people don't tend to comment and give any feedback like they do on hp.
I like squidstop - very easy to use and not too many annoying rules and regulations - I agree with pmc that Squidoo is totally confusing and is painfully sloooowwwww and they mess you around when you try to stick up a link - I don't understand why people bother with it !
I like Xomba. Unfortunately with my obsession with Hubpages I have been slacking a lot on that site.
I love this website, it's one of the easiest to use and the community is tip top. The next step would be private although I did try writing an article for suite 101. They have an actual editor read your stuff and they make you fill out an application before you even get to that point. Although I don't know if that's just a formality and everyone gets accepted. Their editor was very in depth though with comments on what I submitted so I gather that it's not all fluff.
There are several sites like squidoo,triond,shetoldme,xomba but i like hubpages most u think hubpages is best to write due to cool environment and search engine optomized pages.
Hubpages is definitely miles above the other sites on which I write because it has a really flexible platform and allows me to use my marketing skills to their best advantage (other than on my own sites).
Second would have to be Helium. It is second-best in earnings, and posting is very fast and painless. While keeping a rating star in order to get paid can be a pain, it really doesn't take much time and it does cut inactive members out of the pool and leaves more for those of us who are still trying hard to contribute to the community.
The other sites I write on are Epinions.com/Shopping.com and Associated Content. AC is alright for earnings, but not as good as Helium (and I'm at clout 8 so my pay is higher than starters). Epinions/Shopping really suck for pay until you get a "hat" (i.e. Advisor, Top Reviewer) but the community there really helped my review writing by leaps and bounds, so I've stayed there too.
Blogger, although the default themes look drab you can apply really cool custom themes and blogger blogs for some reason are much easier to gain a top ranking for.
Also you have a lot more control over how you do things and the content you publish.
Although the absolute best would be your own wordpress blog, but that has costs attached to it, domains, hosting.
After I published my hub, I usually go to SheToldMe and publish a link to my hub there. It's a good way to get your hub twice in google search engine. There are times, that my link in SheToldMe would even show ahead of my own hub. But to publish anywhere else aside from Hubpages? Nowhere.. HP is the best.. very friendly and helpful site.
Triond for me is the other one where I publish. In my opinion, do not under estimate the power of triond. If you publish all your articles on any particular site of triond, then you'll probably individually control that site. Best as far as adsense is concerned.
So far I am focussing on publishing here at HubPages. But I'm also thinking about starting my own website and taking it from there. From what I've seen that's the best route. It's more work but all the earnings are yours in the end.
Yes, of all the places I know, I like publishing on Hubpages best. I've tried Blogger, but gave that up like 5 years ago. I've tried Squidoo -- just didn't like it and earned zero cents from it.
And I've tried publishing on own domain name using wordpress (but I find that I can get better amounts of traffic publishing on Hubpages.) That is because Hubpages is also kind-of like a social network and forum and there are "related hub" sections that tend to drive more activities and traffic.
I use a blog, but right now it is on blogger, which I want to change soon. I would like to get my own domain and use WordPress.

I wasn't sure where to post this, so anyway... Before I started writing here, I was choosing whether to go with a site that pays per views (i.e. Triond, ExpertsColumn) or per ad click (HubPages). Before starting to...
