What do you think of HubPages acquiring Squidoo?
I just read on my Squidoo dashboard that content will be moving to HubPages! I never thought this would happen. Is anyone else surprised?
My first question would be "Why?". My second question would be how does HP feel about this?, and my third question would be can HP make it better or is Squidoo too far gone?
If HP approves and thinks that they can improve it then maybe it is a good idea.
The only thing is how much would HP have to spend to purchase and improve it?
I guess they have already agreed on everything! I'll be curious to see how this all works out.
I misunderstood your question and until that blog was shown (below) I did not know that the decision had already definitely been made.
Ha, I had not read that.
Well another monopoly forming! But there are so many already
HubPages will be acquiring key content from Squidoo. Read Paul Edmondson's blog post
(shrugs) Makes no nevermind to me. I never Squidded (is that a word?).
I was surprised and did not expect this. But HubPages does everything better. So I will have 3 to 5 articles moved over to HubPages. I have 160 articles on HubPages.
I see that 4 months ago that you wrote a hub about why many people dislike Squidoo and why it would be better to write for HubPages. So you prophesized this event.
I know some Squidoo members are upset but I definitely think HubPages is the way to go!
will this affect hubpages writing content? I meant it is really hard to get into squidoo, when i join in, i can't publish a page but at HP, it is a breeze.
I think it is good move from HB because the more the quality content present in HB, the better we rank in Google. Better rank brings more traffic and new opportunities to its members.

Just for a bit of background - I have been writing online for years, and literally have millions of words "out there". Only once did I have an AdSense account, and if I remember correctly, it was for a blog that is rarely used. It still appears, if I right-click on the blog, and view the...

I've had a massive headache ever since reading about this Squidoo acquisition thing yesterday. I'm not even going to get into whether I think it is a good idea or not. It doesn't matter what I think. The deal is done so it's time to move forward, and as always I trust HP management to make the...

See this article where they say they are experimenting with staff accounts:http://www.squidoohq.com/2011/09/13/wer … -accounts/I think they are prompted by the fact that HP appears to be slowly moving out of teh Panda penalty (albeit with some accounts seeing wild movements). Here's...

Squidoo had an active presence on social media. What will happen to all those accounts now?I'm particularly interested in the FB pages associated with the magazines. Why Vegetarian, which has over 27,000 followers, used to be a good source of traffic to vegan and vegetarian lenses. So Crafty has...

When I hit the transfer button on my Squidoo dashboard and it "forced" me to make a new username for Hub Pages, even tho I had one, I thought that it would be something that would be merged later. Now that I understand more of what's happening, I wish I had not chosen the name I chose...
