Definitive list of Alternatives to Squidoo

Over recent weeks I have been reviewing a number of Squidoo alternatives. Not that I think that there is anything wrong with Squidoo, it's just that sometimes it's good to diversify and to have options. So, in order to make the list the site concerned must satisfy the following criteria:

  1. You must be able to publish your own content
  2. You must be able to include a link back to your own website, blog or whatever else you want to promote
  3. There must be some opportunity for making money - either directly through revenue sharing or via affiliate links.
Within the list I have included links to the sites themselves, links to my reviews and an indication as to whether links are "dofollow" or "nofollow". So, in no particular order, is the full list:

  1. Hubpages [See Review] -links are nofollow initially, then become dofollow once your hub has reached a score of 75.
  2. Knol [See Review] - links are initially nofollow, then become dofollow after a while.
  3. Oondi [See Review] - links are no follow
  4. Bukisa [See Review] - links are nofollow
  5. Zimbio [See Review] - mixed - links in your articles are nofollow, but when republishing blog posts as articles, then link to blog is dofollow.
  6. eHow [See Review] - links are nofollow
  7. Qassia [See Review] - links are dofollow
  8. Launchtags [See Review] -links are dofollow (if you can get it to work!!)
  9. Infobarrel [See Review] - links are dofollow
  10. Xomba [See Review] - links are nofollow

So there you have it! I am sure there are more out there and I will add to this list as and when I find them. Do you know of any others? If so, you could let me know and I add to the list and will review.
