I see that Hubpages vs Squidoo is a big subject... well one of my colleagues has posted a Squidoo vs Hubpages debate on Squidoo using their debate format. So far it looks like Squidoo is winning mainly because the link has been posted on Squidoo forums so now it is about time that Hubbers go and defend Hubpages on it. Here is the link:
Squidoo vs Hubpages
You can also add your own links to your hubpages as long as they are on the debate subject of Squidoo vs Hubpages.
So I urge you all to go and give Squidoo a run for their money in this debate. If your comment is good enough you may even convert some diehard Squidooers to come and try out Hubpages.
Maddie Ruud (Hubpages Community Manager) has already made 2 very informative posts on the debate.
Why choose? Why not just use both?
Great debate for Monkey Brain, but seriously: There's no reason that both can't be used. I think both can co-exist greatly.
I don't really use Squidoo for transparent self promotion as someone stated on the debate forum there. Keep in mind there are some great Hubbers who are also great Squids.
I have never gone to Squidoo, so I would have to say the hubpages are my favorite.
While I do use both, I prefer HubPages to Squidoo any day. I don't know why, but HubPages is just more interesting compared to Squidoo, where you publish an article and let it sit there, while occasionally changing the content (Boring...)
HubPages you get interactive, talk to people, read other people's hubs and hang out here in forums
Your first post on the forums should NEVER be self-promoting and trying to shift people off of Hubpages to get yourself a hit.

I've just joined Squidoo and published my first "lens". My initial impressions of Squidoo are that it's less easy to use than HubPages (from the point of view of actually publishing something rather than...

Has anyone else noticed a serious drop in quality among the Question portion of HubPages? For the past several weeks, nearly every question that is featured in the "my account" section has been ripe with...

... But on the other hand I am keenly reminded of Kipling's blind man and the elephant. Have I seized hold of a tail, or grasped the elephant? Last August, upon returning to Hubpages after a long and lucrative hiatus,...
