Making a living on Squidoo


  • The $7,500 lens

    Do you treat your lensmaking as a hobby or a business? I would guess that more than 99.9% of lensmasters treat their lensmaking time as a hobby. It pays rather nicely if you hit upon a great niche idea and write up some great content, but most of the time people are making lenses it’s probably more fun than work. If it felt like work they probably wouldn’t do it as much, in their free time...

RIP Squidoo Groups

The day we all knew would come has arrived. Squidoo groups are dead and buried, never to be seen again. Weep weep, kinda. WHEN: Just a few days ago, Squidoo converted all groups into regular lenses.

Don’t think just because someone left you a comment you have to publish it for all the world to...

Pinging Your Lenses

WHAT IS A PING? Any time you update certain webpages or publish a new blog post or lens, you can send a Ping for it. A Ping is a little signal your new updated page sends to various search engines and directories. A ping is the online equivalent of your new lens running up to Google’s doorstep and ringing the doorbell. It’s a way for your lens to go out and get attention, shouting “I’m...

Tags Are Back!

Good news ladies and gentlemen Squidoo Tags are back in the game! They are now indexable by search engines once again! I have been meaning to write this post for about two weeks, so here we go! Very simple: A while ago Squidoo HQ made some changes that made squidoo tags pretty useless. The tags pages were ranking very high in Google, which was good. Squidoo then made a change to block search engines...
