The internet has offered up many diverse ways of generating an income. Gone are the days when
regular jobs where the only way we could support ourselves, today there is almost no limit to the opportunities
available online. There are people that have made their riches by learning and understanding the potential that is
just waiting to be tapped. A good example is Squidoo. It is possible for any one of us to make money on Squidoo to
such an extent that we never look back.
The following tips and advice should help you to turn your dreams into a reality. Of course do no expect success
immediately. It will take hard work and devotion before you start to see the results that you desire.
To start with you should create a lens that has a keyword rich name. This would help to ensure that you get the
best possible search engine placement and attract the right kind of traffic that can be turned into a revenue
stream. It helps to check out what the most popular lenses are in the categories you post your articles to. By
doing so you can be certain that your time is more productive. Understand why it is that certain lenses have
attracted a lot of hits. This should include the type of information they contain, exactly how the author has
optimized the text for popular search engines and the density and type of keywords. The more time you spend
researching the better results you should see.
Think about what would attract web surfers to your lenses. Primarily you need to consider the way in which you
structure your content. Many of us go online searching for tips and advice. Make sure your content is relevant,
useful, and easy to digest. Use simple English with attractive words and phrases. Do not fill up your lens with
irrelevant information that a reader may have no interest in. Ask yourself whether you would be drawn to the text
that you compose.
Do not overlook the presentation of the lens. Consider whether to incorporate images and graphics that can make
yours stand out from the crowd. Today there is intense competition for traffic. You need to be certain that you
offer something a little different. Once you believe you have constructed a great looking and sounding lens then do
not publish it immediately. Wait a few hours and then go back and read it over afresh. This will ensure that there
are no mistakes. If possible ask others to evaluate it before submission.
Once you are sure that your lens is attractive then you need to develop your click-throughs and links to get to the
top of the ladder. There is a big difference financially between Tier 1 and Tier 2.

be a technique that needs to be honed and mastered over weeks and months rather than hours and days. You can easily
incorporate Amazon modules into your lens. These should be cultivated with desirable suggestions, ideas, and
reviews. You should gently try to coax the readers into buying a product. Avoid the hard sell and use subtle and
Another interesting way to make money on Squidoo is to create lenses for affiliate products. But if
this is an approach you are considering taking then be careful not to make your lenses appear like spam. There are
restrictions in place that would mean your hard work could all be in vain. For example there is a limit of only
nine links per lens for a single domain. This means that you need to be more creative in your composition and
design if you want to use Squidoo to sell affiliated products.
Your Squidoo lens is a great place to get email addresses from interested surfers. Make sure that yours contains an
option list through which people can submit their information. This would allow for you to send information out as
and when you feel like.
What about using an RSS feed to update the information on your Squidoo lens automatically? This would cut down the
work involved and ensure that the information it contains is always relevant and up to date.
