    Hubpages Vs Squidoo which one is Good?

    Hubpages community is the strongest I've seen. I still can't believe the writing talent showcased here. Squidoo is fun with the "lenses" and the "awards" , and there are most certainly good articles, ......but Squidoo is a good pairing, like  a cheese to a Napa Cab. Hubpages is strong Napa Cab Sav, that needs to breathe for an hour before even thinking about sipping, Squidoo is a very fine aged Cheddar that will match perfectly with the Cabernet.

    I did a lot of research before joining Hubpages.
    Squiddo is a good writing site but people on Hubpages seemed to have better success at making money off of their articles.
    However, I have noticed HubPages does not pay as well as it used too. I am currently searching for other places to write.

    They are both good for different reasons. I started off on Squidoo and still go back there from time to time. I find that different articles do better on different sites.   Personally I think evergreen articles do better on Hub Pages, but that's just my speculation

    This question caught my interest.  Wanted to see what others had to answer on this.  I tried Squidoo out first and didn't do too good with it.  Hubpages seems a better fit for me and I like the interaction that takes place here with others and the training hubs, I have found to be very helpful.  Maybe I would have liked Squidoo more if I had thrown myself whole-heartily into it which I must say I really didn't do.  Anyway, I like it here and doubt that I will venture back over to Squidoo.  I find that more of my Google searches have brought me on occasion to Hubpages than have resulted in landing on a Squidoo lens, so my intuition tells me Hubpages is the better bet.

    I don't know why but for me Squidoo lenses are very difficult to publish. Each and every article, after writing for an hour, I tried to post there is caught bu its filter as low quality or spam. I have written on many sites and none flagged my articles as such as they do. My first lens which was of not very good quality was published very quickly but after that it has become pain.

    The results of my efforts: 1st lens = approved instantly, 2nd = flagged as low quality - edited and edited and deleted content and after 5/6 days tries published with 20% content. I have managed to publish 2 more after trying very hard, but after deleting 80% of content which makes this published lenses nothing but piece of junks. 6 more lenses were deleted by me after being frustrated (never published). What a horrible, horrible thing!

    But if you are a lucky guy whose lenses are not always triggering this bloody filter of Squidoo, then it is a nice place. The one and only lens, which I managed to get published with 100% content is doing great and in my estimate if they allow me to publish 20 or 30 lenses there then it would make me more money then 100+ hubs here. Hope that helps, cheers!

    If you are looking to make money then the answer is both plus a blog. Check around for the big money makers on Squidoo. Many of them will openly admit to having accounts with both as well as a blog. You can rank for keywords easily using Squidoo and Hubpages. Use them to introduce the product and filter readers to your money site. The more times the reader sees the product the better. You also have the advantage of creating link wheels. This will make your pages stronger on your blog as well as your hubs and lenses. Don't get too comfortable writing at any one place. It limits your audience.

    However, if you are just wanting to write for the fun of it. Hubpages all the way. It is easier to get followers here and most people want to leave feed back.

    I find it easier for me at HP  I am earning here and find the community very helpful. It is a simple site and easy to follow. Squidoo is not a site for me

    I write for both sites and love both in a different way. 

    It is more difficult to earn money on Squidoo than on HubPages, but if you know the formula you will do great there.  I have only one article on Squidoo that earns me good money while the rest only earn me pennies if any money at all.  I, however, also like the learning process there and find the community and community leaders to be amazing.   What I know about online writing, I have learned because of my involvement in Squidoo.

    In terms of traffic rank (Alexa traffic rank), Squidoo is ranked much better than HubPages (Squidoo has a 191 global rank as opposed to HubPages' 371).  This means that only 191 and 371 other sites do better globally than these two sites.

    Both sites have their advantages and disadvantages but they are more credible to me than many of the other writing sites because of their strive towards better quality content on their sites.
