    Lol that's a pretty specific question, hubpages ranks better in my opinion but squidoo I can get looking a lot more professional...

    I think both ranks well if you write good content and optimize them well! Use which you want!

    After squidoo was slapped it becam a lot harder to rank. It requires a lot more content and relevance. Hubpages get ranked a lot faster and better to me.

    I've done a lot of marketing and I can tell you a hubpage has more weight and is going to rank over even a pretty well optimized squidoo lense.

    I have over 170 lenses on squidoo now and I'm starting to see that. Piece of crap, I spent hours and hours on it. Haven't built a lens in a few weeks now because it really just isn't worth my time anymore.

    Squidoo rankings are unstable. I created a lens on a decent long-tail keyword and it got to the front page of Google within 2 hours! Next day, nowhere to be seen and it's been ranking all over the place since. I think that HubPages could rank better because they have a hubscore system by where you need a certain score to get your links have nofollow removed. Squidoo, all links are ******** so maybe the search engines prefer HubPages approach?

    I just try out a Knol. I was wondering, can we use Knol as in we use Squidoo? To promote affiliate or to sell? Will we get ban?

    Anybody has good experience with Knol?

    SQUIDOO FTW,

    - Lens look more professional than hubpages hands down.
    - If ranked right you can get far more traffic internally than Hubpages

    Don't use reciprocal linking. It may works back to few years ago, during the period of "AdSense Goldrush".

    However, I doesn't really work out today. It's better that you build one-way non-reciprocal linking. Either you link squidoo to hubpages, or hubpages to Squidoo. Don't use "both-direction linking/reciprocal linking".

    Choose one (either Squidoo/Hubpages/Wetpain/Other Web 2.0 site) as your main site/money site that can get most of the link juice.

    I personally recommend that you choose your money site depend on what keyword you what to rank, and which web 2.0 site your competitor is not ranking so well.
