HubPages vs Squidoo in Page Rank and will this affects us at HP?
I checked today and noticed HP is PR 6 while Squidoo is PR 8.
Will this really affects us all at HubPages?
I write for both but I feel HubPages get more hits compared to Squidoo.
Can anyone please enlighten me on this please?
Google looks at individual pages. So, if you optimize your hubs well, you're ahead of the game. Assuming 2 equally optimized pages on the same keyword exist one a squdioo lens and the other one a hub, everything else being equal, the squidoo lens will show up number 1, the hub number 2 (assuming they're the best match and have the best optimization).
Well overall many who write for one, write for both. The thing right now that is crippling Squidoo is their tier payments. That has resulted in reduced lens' being produced, and could lead to the demise of Squidoo if they do not act on this issue. I would not be too concerned, HP is still easy to rank in the top Google results.
Yes, Squidoo has a higher PR but that doesn't mean that people will read your stuff at Squidoo. For me HUbpages is a better experience and I'll stay here for my life for the appreciation I get here for writing. I've got 9 hubs here and my page views are nearly 1000 but with a single lense at Squidoo I've got 7 views so far. So my piece of advice is:
Hubpages -write whatever you want (the community here is enough for appreciation)
Squidoo -research internet, know what people love to read about and then a create lens
Bets of luck!

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 just browsing as a reader), and is also slower. I do however like the...

I am new to both but just wanted to say that I am very much impressed with HubPages. I put up some stuff there first and then found out about this site. So, I put up a few things here as well. The difference is incredible. Both sites are relatively easy to negotiate and...

... 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, I asked myself, "Self, how does one decide which articles to post here,...

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...
