Squidoo is merging with HubPages. The recent announcement shares that some lenses will be transferred onto HubPages and become hubs. However, not all content will move and some of it you may not even want to move onto the site. It really depends on your audience, type of content and general feel of it now (some of it is likely years old!).

Not just that but if you’re already a HubPages writer, you may want somewhere else to write. There is a rule in writing of not putting all your eggs into one basket. It is becoming more and more apparent why you shouldn’t do that with so many writing sites closing.

So, you need to find Squidoo alternatives. The good news is that there are a few options out there. Here are some of my personal favorites.

Wizzley for Your Longer Content

If you want to write longer content, the Wizzley is certainly a site for you. This is designed similarly to Squidoo and HubPages, making it one of the best Squidoo alternatives for those who want to do little work. Each wizzle has modules for text, affiliate products (there are a range), images, videos etc.

There are quality control standards to meet. Your first five posts will be moderated by humans to determine whether they of a standard for the site. It took me three attempts to get my head around the type of posts that Wizzley was looking for and get past just the first post being kept online. Once you’ve reached the first five, your links become do-follow links.

At first, your revenue share starts off with a 50-50 spilt. It grows to a 60-40 split to you once you have 100 posts on the site. All revenue is gained through Google AdSense or Chitika for ads and then various affiliate places for your products. The money is calculated through those individual places rather than on Wizzley. This can be off-putting for some, but at least you’re not tied to only having a Google AdSense account!

If you want to move your lenses across, you will just need to delete them from Squidoo and then they will be accepted (as long as they meet the quality guidelines).

If you want to see the money accumulating through the actual site, then you need to look at the following Squidoo alternatives.

Writedge for Medium Length Articles

I put medium length but longer ones can do well. Writedge (and its sister site Daily Two Cents mentioned below) was created by writers on HubPages and InfoBarrel. They wanted to make sure that writers had a place where they were definitely appreciated and where they would get a say in some of the layout of the site. While the owners have the final word, writers are constantly kept in the loop from the planning stages.

The minimum length is 400 words and the model is a pay per view one, where writers get $5 per 1,000. One of the biggest benefits is that there is no need for any other accounts. No Google AdSense account is added and there is no need for affiliate accounts. However, the latter ones will help with earnings.

Affiliate links are allowed on the site, with up to four allowed depending on the number of words. If the minimum 400 is reached, then only one is allowed. All writers earn 100% of the income from these affiliate links, so it is well worth using them!

Like with many other writing sites, there is also a forum. While this is not as popular yet, it is growing and people are asking questions there. It is also possible to join the Writedge Support Group on Facebook, where many questions are asked and answered on a daily basis.

Daily Two Cents for Socializing

Daily Two Cents originally looked like a Bubblews alternative but is quickly growing as a Yahoo Contributor Network and Squidoo alternative. The benefit of this site is that it is geared for socializing as well as writing.

The minimum word count is 100 words, and personal posts are accepted and often shared. However, that does not take away from the relevance of more serious and longer posts. Some of the people who see a success on this post find a tight niche, such as daytime TV and boxing.

Like Writedge, affiliate links are allowed but only one per post. 100% of the income is given to the writer for these affiliate links.

Daily Two Cents and Writedge both use the WordPress system for adding content. The first three posts at least will be edited before going live on the site to make sure you’re following the rules and offer high quality content. After that, you may get author privileges. If you want to share your Squidoo lenses, they will need to be de-indexed from Google first.

Day2Day Tips as One of the Squidoo Alternatives

Day2Day Tips is a relatively new site. It was created by five Filipino writers, who wanted somewhere to offer quality and engaging content. This is not the place for short personal posts. It is a site for sharing tips and guides to people, whether it is on saving money on car insurance, how to make more money blogging or how to cook a recipe.

The site payment structure is detailed on the earnings page. There is a certain amount given for each view, comment and share. There are other bonuses offered on a regular basis, and bonuses for writing longer content. Levels are also awarded, which can open up more earning opportunities.

Minimum payout for the site is just $1 and payments are made via PayPal at the end of each month. From there, it’s all about being sociable while offering your own tips. Like Writedge and Daily Two Cents, there is a Facebook group for Day2Day Tips members, where you can share your own posts when you write them.

If you want to share your lenses on Day2Day Tips, you will likely need to wait for them to de-index. It may be worth cutting them down and sharing them as shorter tip articles on the site.

There are many other Squidoo alternatives out there.The ones mentioned above are my favorite sites to write on right now. Yes, that changes. But in the last five months or so, each of the sites have paid on time when they said they would and offered me a place to network with other quality writers. They've become a community, which is something that can often be missed when writing online.

It’s up to you just how many you join, but it’s worth putting the effort into each one. Remember you need a portfolio to see yourself earning on a regular basis. Good luck with your writing, whatever platform you decide to use your articles on.
