Thanks for sharing that. It is interesting that squidoo is doing well. The voting widget towards the bottom of that page tells the story. There are many votes for "traffic unchanged" for squidoo while the story is different for hubpages.
The following are some of the differences that I notice.
1) Squidoo has longer stories. An average squidoo page has more content than a page on hubpages.
2) There is more diversity of content in squidoo - videos, gallery, text and so on.
3) Total number of google ads used on a squidoo page are less but there are several other types of ads.I am not sure whether panda is blind to certain types of ads (other than adsense).
4) The adsense block used at the top is different in size - not the 336x380 or the 300x250 size.Most successful sites don't seem to use these type of ad formats. 728x90 seem to be popular among them.
Whatson, AFAIK there are several Indians adding content on squidoo. What do you think is helping them?
since we cannot make Panda reviews with any individual site as an example here, shall we try to find the difference between the bigger ones like squidoo and hubpages?
