How are you defining "more popular?"
Both sites have certain similarities (being user-generated content sites) and if you talk to users of the two sites, you'll find some who have a preference for one over the other, while some people find they are happy to work with either.
For traffic and audience, Quantcast currently gives Squidoo a rank of 72 while HubPages is ranked at 81, so according to those stats, Squidoo is slightly more popular.
I looked at google rankings a couple of months ago and was surprised that Squidoo ranked 7 while hubpages was ranked 6. That might suggest that Squidoo is more popular. I took a look at Squidoo and personally I prefer hubpages. Squidoo use "lenses" for articles - they seem to meander on forever sometimes and contain everything but the kitchen sink. Can't say I looked at many, so maybe I'm being unfair, but I like to be able to see an article as a whole and for it to have a structure. I also understand they pay writers different amounts depending on their usage of the site and their rank as a Squidoo writer. I don't think that's fair. Not that I earn anything on hubpages - it's the principle of the thing:)
Hubs can meander on forever and sometimes contain everything but the kitchen sink too. The Squidoo payment system rewards lenses that earn the most traffic, it's not about how much you use the site. I know, I earn very well there.
Thanks for telling me that, relache. Do you find it easier to earn on Squidoo?
I find it different earning on Squidoo, not really easier or harder.
I write on both sites, although I discovered HubPages first. It really depends on the writer, but I find that I can be more creative and fun when writing Squidoo lenses because of the different modules. I love it that you can have different designs for your lenses on Squidoo too! ^_^

So I've been a Hubpage and Squidoo writer for the past 5 years. Recently, my 185 Squidoo hubs were transferred over to Hubpages and to start earning money, I applied for the Google adsense program about 2 weeks ago. It appears that my account was approved for a couple days and then I...

I'm not being funny here,the hubstats yet only change 3 or 4 times a week, if you are lucky.Not to mention hubs take over 24 hours to publish. No mentions about it on the blog, no apologies, it isn't like the issue hasn't been ongoing for a while now...Anybody have any idea? Hope I've missed...

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.

Nobody else seems to have picked this up, (and accuse me of cross posting if you wish as there is another dormant thread) but the new eBay Partner Network (EPN) policy effective Monday statesPublishers may only place links and/or promotional content on sites they own. Affiliate links on third...

I just left a thread where the main complaint was that squidoo writers were going to bring the quality down. But what surprises me is not the complaining but the lack of analysis of the big picture. I started on hubpages years ago and left because of the articles that were being posted....
