Squidoo is a big hub and a great source to get more blog traffic. On Squidoo, you are able to write pages (they call those pages lenses) that you can use to write content on almost anything. Squidoo gives you the ability to promote your blog using their sidebar feature and the ability to promote products on Amazon and eBay.
If you create enough pages on Squidoo, and some (or all) of those pages become popular, your blog traffic can dramatically increase. Let’s say you have 100 pages on Squidoo, and they all bring in 1 visitor to your blog every day. That’s an extra 700 visitors every week, 3000 visitors every month, and 36500 visitors every year. Those numbers really add up, and you only get to take advantage of that by creating pages on Squidoo.
Creating a page on Squidoo is very easy. All you need to do is create a page, work on it for 15-30 minutes, and then you’re done. Promoting your page is all you need to do at that point. Promote it on your blog and social networks. You may be wondering why you don’t promote your blog right from the get-go, but circular viralocity says otherwise. You want to promote something that leads to your blog or social networks, and have those blogs and social networks promote each other.
Promoting a Squidoo page has the potential to share valuable insight with others. If people take the step to click a link on your blog, they will most likely read through your blog’s content and follow you on your social networks.
Not only is Squidoo a great way to bring in more blog traffic, but it is also a great way to earn extra revenue. Some people on Squidoo are making thousands of dollars every month from ads and product commissions. You also have the option to donate a percentage of your earnings to charity. Whether you feel like donating 7% or 77% of your earnings to charity, you can donate any percentage of your earnings to charity.

I started on Squidoo years ago and still have lenses there, but I have stopped adding new ones with their constant changes in rules and the filters that lock lenses for no apparent reason. It takes me a few hours to create a lens and don’t want to make new ones that could be locked and not even know why they are locked. I do still get blog traffic from lenses that are still alive – so if you can manage to beat the filters, it is a source of traffic – just no longer one I pursue.

I do understand why less people are on Squidoo. It’s traffic is down to where it was in 2009 and Tier 1 lenses barely made $6. However, this is also a point for new and emerging lensmasters to grow on Squidoo in anticipation for Squidoo to get right back to where it was. If a lensmaster creates 20 Tier 1 lenses now, that may only be a little over $120 now, but if Squidoo gets back to over 1 million daily visitors, those same lenses are making over $1,400 every month not including the affiliate sales. Squidoo’s decline has leveled the playing field for lensmasters who want to have 20 or so Tier 1 lenses, but it’s a rough patch for all of the established ones. It is still important to remember that although Squidoo is not where it was, it is still getting hundreds of thousands of daily visitors.
