If you love Squidoo…

Posted on Oct 16 2008

If you love Squidoo, then you’ll probably love these sites too!

Tiffany, my partner at BuildMyLens.com, wrote an article yesterday that gave a nice little roundup of a few sites built on the same idea as Squidoo.

Give them a go if you haven’t, comment on your experience if you have!

************

HubPages – This website gives users a chance to show what they know for free. You can create single Hub Pages where you feature yourself and your knowledge. For marketers, a Hub Page is a good way to build your brand. But be careful – they’re persnickety about how many links you use and where they lead.

Google Knol – A knol is an article about a specific subject. Google Knol is a place where, like Squidoo, you can share information with others by creating and posting your own knols. Google Knol gives you a way to share, connect with other experts, be more visible, brand yourself and grow. Like Squidoo, they’re relaxed on your marketing efforts!

Weebly – Weebly is a cool website that allows you to build your own web page for free. It offers some nice, user-friendly features that make it easy to create a professional looking site that will give you increased visibility and a place to link your Hub Pages, Squidoo lenses and Knols to as well as other domains.

Finding websites like Squidoo that give you free resources for getting your name and face out there is like finding money in an old coat pocket – what a bonus! Take advantage of all of these resources and grow your brand through the peer-to-peer social networking media outlets on the World Wide Web.

Tiffany and I have a lens building service at BuildMyLens.com, and a Knol building service at BuildMyKnol.com. Check us out.

And the more sites like Squidoo you use to target your keywords and phrases the more success you will have.

So go dive right in…

    Ah, thanks Lewis and Tiffany for the other sites. I must be a Squidoo die-hard as I just can’t seem to pry myself away from this platform to consider other ones, well other than blogging perhaps.

  2. Mickie says:

    I am in agreement with Jaguar Julie, I signed up for HubPages several months ago, and have not found (or wanted to find?) the time to create even one hub. I am even finding it hard to make additions to my blog because I am always on Squidoo updating.

    I am still trying to learn hub pages. I did create one. Squidoo really has me spoiled. Will check out the others, too! Thank you!

    Lewis,

    I have to agree with Joan Adams, I did create one hubpage recently. Squidoo really has me spoiled, too.

  6. JOOLOO says:

    I read somewhere recently that Google is dropping Knol. It was a reliable source.

    Hi Lewis,

    I don’t thing squidoo are that relaxed about marketing. They keep censoring new topics. Now weight loss is forbidden and soon everything from CLickbank will be.
