Are we allowed create account on both HubPages and Squidoo? if not tell me which is better ?
Creation of account is not an issue. All authors and content writers can create accounts anywhere on the web publishing platforms but they must ensure that their content everywhere is unique and is not copied or pasted. At squidoo it may not yield dollars but HubPages can spin dollars for you. Do not expect immediate returns and without worrying for the dollars, create unique content to engage the visitors in such a way that they keep track of your writings by following you. Income from HubPages is directly proportional to your number of Hubs, Quality of Hubs, Followers, Fan Mails, Comments and your participation in forums and Ask Questions sections. Win as many accolades as you can and become the top level commentator to be successful on Hub Pages.
I have a Squidoo account, but there's something about the way they do things on there that really doesn't work for my own purposes. Believe it or not, all the orange and cartoon-y looking stuff on there was enough that I could never say on there for any length of time.
This site always worked well for me, and I started to really like the whole look (etc.) of after they did some refining and made it look more polished. I haven't been all that active on here recently for my own reasons (only one of which includes the fact that I'm trying to clean out a bunch of REALLY old Hubs, re-think what to do with some, etc. etc. Other than that, my reasons have nothing much to do with HubPages, or even my online writing at all.)
I don't really know Squidoo - especially since they, like HubPages, have done a lot of changing of things (rules, etc.); but they used to seem very Amazon-sales focused to me - which isn't really my focus.
Things are straightforward on this site. You pretty much either get traffic to a Hub or don't. Over time you get paid. That's it.
Nothing is stopping you from having accounts at both sites. They are competitors but one is not going to punish you for having an account with the other.
For whatever it's worth, I gave Squidoo a brief try and decided that I liked HubPages better.

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.

www.gather.com allows content for Mature Audiences.When publishing your article the second step is to choose which of your subscribed groups it is published to and whether or not it has adult content. This is what it says:There's tick boxes next to these...I've found Gather very handy to publish...

It is surprising how I never heard of Squidoo before until about a week before Hubpages and Squidoo merged. I checked a website about 20 sites that pays for blogging and writing articles. Squidoo was first, then Hubpages, ContentBLVD, Helium, Triond, About.com and the rest mentioned are aliens to me

I am scratching my head I have a page on Squidoo that gets some good traffic. In a range of 1000 views per day. At the same time, they pay me peanuts for it. My similar HP page that gets times less traffic brings me times more money! Go figure what they do with my money? So I realized I am giving...
