All the content will be moved to Hubpages.
Can't believe people still use Squidoo in the first place.
Best thing that could happen to them!
I tried an article on their recently for the hell of it and it got removed in a few hours. (No violations that I could see)
They had some weird automatic system that should prevent spam. Instead it was too hard to publish completely normal article.
Does it mean Hub was better than Squidoo?
This just reinforces my belief that the only logical thing to do is to buy Hosting + Domain/s, and write for yourself...
All the other possibilities, revenue sharing sites, social media sites, forums, all of that is gambling with your time and content. Now, I'm not saying one should stay away from those, but anything serious one should do only on their self-hosted sites, and then use revenue sharing sites and social media and forums for ranking/promoting/marketing/backlinks/traffic...
This... is no good news. Instead of two referring domains now you'll have one if you had any Squidoo links. IMHO Squidoo was pretty awesome actually. Not EASY to get started up, but really good.
Squidoo must have made millions over the years though bet the team that created Squidoo are filthy rich with all that garbage content clogging the internet up lol.
I never understood the affiliate monetization they used on their site it just cluttered the site even more with ads.
Even with just adsense they would have raked in millions a month from clicks.
Its like warrior forum taking over Freelancer!
This acquisition came as a shocker to me. Totally agree with aka sam
Change is all that there is.
Nothing is permanent in this world.
I agree hosting your own content is a lot better.
It was the other way around.
I hate squidoo they never approve my lens. Hubpages also sucks.
Everything is just about obsolete when you can just build your own network. Why fit into someones bubble
when you can blow your own bubble.
Both Hubpages and Squidoo are in top 1500 Alexa.com. After Squidoo become in Hubpages management, what is the new name? Hub Squidoo Pages??
I bet it's going to be Hu-Doo.
Only few days back I created new lens there but still dint get approved. Lets see the changes after this
lol, lol, lol, because hosting a webdomain is so expensive?
Great! More diversity going down the toilet..../sarcasm
Yahoo voices closed down, Demand media doesn't do profit. Now Squidoo is closing down. Why do you think is happening this? They have enormous amount of traffic. Are expenses for staff and hosting higher than profit?
Separate names with a comma.
