Squidoo has been recommended to me. Is there more money there...
than here at Hubpages? The site looks kind of silly while Hubpages has a more dignified or classy look.
I actually switched from Squidoo to Hubpages. Try spending hours working on an original 1000-word article, only to have it flagged as "low-quality content" when I tried to publish it.
Well DuffsMom i think both hubpages and squidoo is hard to earn money.Personally i have not use squidoo but i feel and read about this that squidoo also pay you and many of the people's thought that it's very hard to earn at hubpages and many of them thought about squidoo.So i think both of them will pay you but for this you need hard work.
I have a squidoo account which is far older than my hubpages account. Earning wise, my Squidoo account is a lot better but there are several factors that should be considered. First, my Squidoo acount is more than a year old compared to this one which is just up for a few months. And I agree with what the first commenter said that Squidoo is really strict regarding the quality of every article you submit to them. A lot of my works were rejected which is an experience I never encountered here in hubpages. Whether you choose Squidoo or Hubpages, both path requires hard work and dedication to achieve a stable passive earning, this is one thing I'm certain about. Good luck!
If you want to earn money from writing online, both will be a waste of time. To really earn money online you need to have your own blog. People will argue that fact till they are blue in the face, but they are wrong.
My adsense earns about twice as much as my HP account, and adsense isn't even my highest earning source. Both HP and Squidoo do things that destroy your traffic. One of my blogs has about 15 posts I wrote, and about 3 months worth of copy and pasted Clickbank posts scheduled for 3 times a week. That one blog has more traffic than my HP and Squidoo combined, and it's newer than both.
Do yourself a favor and buy a domain/hosting, and use article directories for about all they are good for, backlinks.
I made a lot over Christmas on Squidoo, I haven't made hardly anything here. It all depends on the type of article you specialise in. I find Squidoo more fun!
Squidoo is much more sales oriented. It does look pretty tacky. I don't get where others are saying here that their articles get rejected. I see plenty of lenses there that are basically just lists of things to buy. I've got 11 lenses there and never had one rejected. The way their payout is structured you get nothing from adsence for lenses that are not ranked in the top 85,000 of lenses on the site (tier 3) it has to average that rank for a month, and then you only get about 30 cents. If you hit tier 2 (top 10,000) then you get about $7. Tier 1 lenses (top 2000) earn $50. So if your lenses rank high, you can make money, but there are millions of lenses there that earn nothing. I think most people there earn more from selling products than from adsense.
I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Info Barrel. I understand that they are the highest paying and have a good number of views. The first 10 articles are actually read for quality. Once you get past that you're on your own like here. I did find their training articles more comprehensive and I am contemplating using them more. Hub Pages is just so darn easy to use.
PS my daughter has started on Info Barrel and likes the platform.
Infobarrel is great, I earn more with IB than with Hubpages. In fact, I moved most of my hubs from here to there last month.
Here's my question: in reading IB's user agreement they state we cannot post anything previously published..so I thought I couldn't move my hubs there. Am I incorrect because it sounds like a better deal there?
IB pays you thru Adsense? im thinking joining but then, i always have this invalid clicks every end month on my adsense account
lol, I know what you mean about it looking like a site for kids with that brightly colored cartoony design. It's a good platform to use for sales articles and product reviews of "light" stuff. People who do well on squidoo tend to write about best halloween costumes, best gifts for such and such holiday, stuff like that. That stuff bores me to tears personally, but some people can really run with it.
I have just one lens that I created over 3 years ago that earns about 50 cents a month. It's a product hub.
I guess a good way to answer the question is to take a look at the different platforms and then ask yourself is this a platform I would like to write on.
Each of the platforms has different pros and cons. Yes there maybe more money on offer on one them, but do you have the time to invest in learning a new platform to write on?
I use both Hubpages and Squidoo each one is very different and for me the money comes in when it comes in.
If you have something to market, probably. If you are going to write, the only real money is for the top 10,000 lenses, and with over three million lenses, the odds you are going to get there is slim to none.
Do some charity also. Opt for all your income from Squidoo going to charity. It may provide an opportunity for Back links to increase your income at the most beautiful publishing platform called HubPages.
