Yahoo is much more specific. You find a question, you (hopefully) leave a tailored answer.
Hubpages is, in my view, better for sharing information you find hard to find online that you know about yourself, or for writing about topics that interest you, for anyone to view.
Each to their own, but I find hubpages better for the pure simple fact that the content is, mostly, quite good quality.
I write for both.
I like to write hubs and on Yahoo.
It is easier to earn more money by direct payments from Yahoo and their Pay per Impression model means that if you generate a lot of traffic to your pages you can generate a regular but small income.
HubPages for me has better community support and I get more tools to write and drive traffic.
Yahoo does allow you to write on any topic, but they do not always pay up front for the work, especially if it is on a common topic of interest. But they give you options where you can post an article to them which pays you per impression and you can adapt that piece of work and use it for a hub if you like.
I'd say give writing for both a good six month to one year tril if you can. Then see how it goes, if you feel that it is not working you can drop one or the other.
Hubpages, in my opinion. I've been on the Yahoo Contributor Network (and Associated Content when it was that) for a few years now, and even with the Yahoo buyout I still make a lot more money with Hubpages. I think part of it is that I've spent a lot of time and energy learning how to do well-targeted marketing. It means that I end up with less overall traffic than some others, but higher conversions. On YCN, it doesn't matter if the traffic is targeted or not, it all counts -- for a small amount.
If you're having trouble with targeting, then Yahoo might work for you for a while. However, ultimately, targeted traffic will make a lot more if you have a good monetization strategy. Even my small percentage off of eBay and Amazon through Hubpages makes a lot more than what I make on Yahoo.
