Does anyone else feel that Squidoo, compared to Hubpages feels a bit outdated and gimmicky?
I have only been here for a few months (Squidoo for years) and really like it here, things just seem to 'work' better. Hubs look more professional and I love the forums, if I have a problem or need an answer I can get help from another Hubber and even sometimes get a reply from a HP staff member, on Squidoo you can feel like your on your own and if you get stuck, well TS!
The points and trophies on Squidoo make me feel like a child getting a gold star for being good rather than a writer whose work is appreciated.
Keep up the good work HP!
I've always preferred HubPages over Squidoo. I just couldn't get used to Squidoo. Like you said, Hubs look professional. I totally agree. That's why I've written almost all of my material here; the look. I can't take the flashy, loud, busy look of Squidoo. And I wasn't fond of their tier system, though I understand why they use it; I assume it's to keep up quality. I have one featured lens there and never use the site. You're also correct about the community; you can almost always get help here. Some of the help I've gotten has been invaluable to me. Also, I think the interface here is user-friendly, it's really easy for me to make a Hub. With the templates, even easier. It does just all-around seem more mature here at HP.
The writer support is terrible on Squidoo and it doesn't look professional at all. I like HP much more.

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.

OK, so it's probably too soon to tell, but along with getting a higher percentage of my views from Google searches, it looks a bit like my Amazon sales have increased both in number and amount since we switched from subdomains to a single domain. Is anyone else seeing this? Even if it isn't the...

I've heard it from a few people that HubPages isn't getting the same google love that it used to. What is your take on this? Have you noticed a reduction in traffic/earnings over the past few months? I just wanted to see if it was fact or fiction.

I also have squidoo account, but I will prefer to write more articles on hubpages. Not only that I found it more convenient but its also has high ranking than squidoo (based on alexa.com). And it does matter to me. How about you? What do you think is the best, hubpages or squidoo?
