Which is better for SEO, Squidoo site or domain with keywords? Which has more weight?
Use hubpages, it usually takes less than 12 hours to get indexed by Google.
It also depends on what you're going to do. If you plan to make 1 Niche site with 40 50 related articles around a specific topic/product then going after a self-hosted website is the best option, however if you tend to get organic traffic from very powerful long-tail keywords and you don't want to wait for ages to get indexed and use some PR and weight of an authority domain to have an edge on your competitors I will tell you to use hubpages or Infobarrel.
While it may be easier to initially get a Squidoo page ranked I think in the long run you are better off using your own domain.
With your own page you have a lot more options when it comes to monetizing your site, you have a lot more flexibility in adding new pages and content, you do not have to worry about building a lot of links to a page you really do not control only to wake up one morning and find it deleted over some obscure rule way down in the fine print somewhere. While I use Squidoo pages to support my money sites I would never use one as a money site, just too much downside.
The weight totally depends on age/value of your domain in question.
Assuming a new domain, squidoo is better short term. Your domain is better long term assuming you build its value.
Depends how long you're going to work at the site. If you plan to throw it up and leave it, then squidoo. If you're going to build some backlinks, I'd go with the keyword domain.
I suggest you use them both.
Each one has it's one advantages.
When using Squidoo, hubpage, wiki space and so on- you can get indexed really fast.
When you have your own domain, you can have full control on the applications and the server.
Just test it first with Squidoo, hubpages or infobarrel. When you see some improvement in your traffic and revenue, then build your own site for that keyword.
That's how it works.
Use both. Promote both of them at the same time. The Squidoo lens will rank much faster but when your domain ranks too then you will have 2 pages in top 10 and make more money.
This man speaks the truth.
Its all about owning the most real estate on the first page. This includes ranking your own domain, as well as web 2.0 properties, and videos as well.
Using both make more senses. Just take initiative and build links on each page.
