I just started at Hubpages before the long vacation. It is geared more towards “how-to” and information pages. I am only at the beginning stages of learning how to write there. Hub pages are also undergoing some radical change of direction, for many of the same reasons that Squidoo has.
Learning how to adjust can only help the webpages and blogging that I make to be better suited to readers and to search engines, which seem to be a challenge for the way I have been creating in th elast year or so.
