Squidoo Top 100

Posted on Sep 12 2007

I thought I’d post a quick collection of the Top 100 lists that exist, with some cool extras too. All information on the official Squidoo top 100 lists are based on info from the previous 14 days. So on day 15, the new info is incorporated into the rankings, and info from day 1 is no longer included. It’s called a’Rolling Window’.

NOTE: Most Profitable listings are no longer available because of the number of profitable lenses (mine included) that got copied by annoying people.

1. Top 100 Most Emailed Lenses – The lenses here are based on the total number of times the ‘Email’ link is used in the sidebar of the lens.

2. Top 100 Lensrank – The lenses here are ranked with the secret Squidoo algorithm which counts all kinds of things, like the number of visitors the lens has, number of links each visitor clicks, if they save it, buy from the lens, etc etc. Basically, lensrank tries to come up with a number to sum up the interaction each lens is having with the world.

3. Top 100 Most Visited Lenses – This list isn’t linked to from anywhere by Squidoo HQ, because it got ‘taken down’ a while ago. But the page still exists. If this link is dead when you click it, please let me know.

3. Top 100 Most Active Groups – This list is based purely on the size of the group. The number 1 group has the most lenses added to it, and the number 2 lens has less, etc.

4. Top 100 ‘Movers And Shakers’ Groups – This list is based on which groups are growing faster than others.

5. Top 100 Newest Groups – This list is pretty simple. If you create a new group, it shows in the number 1 spot.

6. Top 100 Lenses By Topic – This is’t just one list, it’s 21. From this page you can select any topic you like on the right, and see the Top 100 lenses. Fun to explore!

7. Top Squids – this is based on an algorithm cooked up by lensmaster thefluffanutta on his site, and ranks all lensmasters against each other to create a top 20 list. The ranking includes things like pagerank of the lenses, total number of lenses, etc.

And there you have it! A roundup of the top lists available for your exploration!
