Generate Traffic With Squidoo Lenses In Affiliate Marketing

Do you Squidoo? Do you create free traffic using Squidoo lenses?

Seth Godin started the Original Squid almost ten years ago.

He created Yoyodyne, and for the first time introduces the idea if permission marketing online.
Yoyodine was acquired by Yahoo, Seth served as VP Direct Marketing for Yahoo for an year and since 2000 Seth Godin dedicated himself as a public speaker, an author and a blogger.

Among others, he wrote an eBook about traffic in which he introduce a term I like “deserved traffic” which is coming from content. Yes, content is the king.

With the technology and software packages we have today is easy to build web pages, but we really need web pages which attract traffic. The eternal question: how do I get more traffic?

Seth Godin advice is we need the 3 Us:



Whatever you create, a lens, a blog, a website, you are responsible for the 3 Us and this is the long term solution for getting traffic which is the same as having quality content.

Search engines have sophisticated algorithms, they change frequently without any notice to the public at large. Some people invest a lot of time, work, and energy trying to trick the search engines, it is possible to do so, but it isn’t a long term solution.

What happened in July 2006 when Google decided to change the landing page algorithm to rank web sites was a lesson for all of us. It was painful for a lot of people who lost a good Google ranking over the night.

Google is on a mission to build a better web, and that action was a huge step in the right direction, a loud cry for quality pages! That was the Google way to clean up the web, to make invisible pages which are not useful, nobody update them and have information which are not unique in nature. With other words pages without content.

Prior to July 2006 I used Pay Per Click (PPC) to drive traffic, since that day of infamy I begin to explore Social Bookmark which can produce free traffic for me.

My favorite technique is to create Squidoo lenses in which I have links to my web sites, my eBay auctions, RSS modules, Amazon modules and a lot of interaction with the pubic interested in my topics via plexo modules.

Squidoo is a platform that lets anyone build a web page (called lens) about any topic which interest you, free, and in just a few minutes. It is confusing for the beginning, but you can define a lens as your viewpoint on a topic. Lenses focus attention, drive clicks and even earn royalties.

The secret is – your lens must be noticed by the public and if you have good content they will. Why, because:

they are useful
frequently updated and
contains your unique expertize, point of view.


The successful lenses, as the successful web sites, are the ones which follow Seth Godins 3 Us rules.

I heard a lot of comments about how much you have to work on your lenses to continue improve and update them. The answer is yes and no! I hope you don’t expect to improve the visibility of your work doing nothing!

If you use proper techniques you can create lenses with dynamic allocation. Example, you can use:

RSS module which change content at 6 hours
create a gallery of pictures with Flickr, all the time when you add a new picture in Flickr the change will be propagated in your lens which use that Flickr
Amazon modules
voting using plexo modules
eBay modules which change when an item is ended or you add a new item


All of those will refresh your content daily and in top of that when you have something new to say, yes, you will update your lens content.

I am very comfortable with Squidoo lenses and the traffic I generate for my personals links I put on them: my web sites, blogs etc. I really love Squidoo lenses, I have a lot of fun doing them, but I am an open mind and I use other sources to drive traffic other Social Bookmark techniques.
I use:

Onlywise and so on.


Well, it is possible to create traffic without spending money with PPC. The content of your web sites, blogs, lenses, is the most important driving force for traffic, social bookmark is the second important technique you can use to generate f

Is Squidoo Too Picky Or What?

I’ve attempted using Squidoo in the past but get so ticked off because it keeps telling me that my content needs to be original. The only copied content that I used on the lens were of brief descriptions of products I was reviewing or places I wanted to visit… I kept getting so many errors it was driving me nuts, I got five lens to publish but they were soon taken down…
What I find utterly funny is I use maybe one or two affiliate links sometimes none at all and have such a hard time getting my lens published, other people seem to get away with murder on this site… they load it down with bits of articles changing just a few words here and there and adding videos from YouTube and other video sites, tossing up a few pictures form an image search and filling it up with tons of affiliate links… what gives?

How Do You Become A Good Affiliate Marketer? I’ve Tried And Tried But Can’t Do It….?

I’m not asking to make 50-100k a month as many of these affliliate marketers claim they make. I’ve tried squidoo.com, I’ve tried many of the article sites and note, I’ve made several squidoo lens and wrote many articles. I just can’t seem to get it….I’ve done back links, tried forums, posting on CL (yuck btw) and luck is not on my side. I’ve been at this for almost a year now and at most made 1,000 in a month from posting on CL. You know, my goal is to be able to make a good amount of money and get this house for my family. My 5yr old son told me the other day, “Daddy, when can we get a house with a backyard because I don’t like moving from apartment to apartment.” I used to make pretty decent money in the car business till I came down with a severe case of bipolar. None the less, it made it almost impossible for me to work. Anyway, I’m seeking some help here….I am very dedicated to affiliate marketing and try hard but I just need some mentoring. And please, if you really are interested in helping me then I thank you but if you are just going to leave a link to your website, you’re wasting your time.
Thank You and have a great day!
