First of all, I want to say that Squidoo is very addictive! I've now made a total of 12 lenses and 3 groups. I have a whole list in my desk drawer of other lenses I would like to create! Whenever an idea hits me I write it on my list.. something that I enjoy and am interested in.. or a cause that I would like to help out! Maybe ONE day I will make it to Giant Squid status?? One can wish, eh??
Although I'm not an expert on Squidoo yet, I can offer a little bit of advice for newbies. Once you have created your lens be sure to submit it to search engines. Make sure you use a lot of keywords and phrases so that people can find it easily! Lensroll other similar lenses. Join groups or make your own! There are all sorts of ways to network with other lenses on Squidoo. Also, make sure to join the forums and get the word out about your new lenses!
You can also add it to Lensroll.com, digg, and stumbleupon. The possibilities are endless. Use whatever resources you can find to get your lenses out to the world!
Put something interesting on your lense. Make people WANT to read it! Give them a reason to! You can also make some money by adding affiliate links on your page that have something in common with your lense subject.
If you have a blog, you can add an rss feed on your lense to help you get new clicks to your blog!
If you are not already a member of Twitter be sure to join up! Every time you update a Squidoo lense you can have it automatically update your twitter account with the link to that specific lense! Follow me on twitter: tatteredsoul77
There are soo many things to do with Squidoo. I will be posting more tips and advice as I learn new things! Please check out my Lensmaster Page which lists all of the lenses I have made.
