10 Quick Steps to Make Money with Squidoo's Changed Policy

Make Money with Squidoo's Changed Policy

I like many of you suffered a substantial loss when Squidoo changed their policy last year and a significant number of my lenses (articles) were locked...I am determined more than ever to adapt rather than abort...Because even though I was hit hard by the changed policy, I see Squidoo as an essential part of my make money online plan...

What I Learned From Squidoo

As is the case with the safety briefings on most major airlines, the flight attendants instruct you to "save yourself first" by placing the oxygen mask on yourself prior to putting one on your small children...This mindset also applies to blogging or writing articles online to make money...Your efforts should be first & foremost and primarily focused on building your brand, growing your readership, generating more traffic to blogs and websites where you have the most control...

Squidoo's Policy Changed, Now What

Here are my top ten quick steps to make money with Squidoo and keep your lenses from getting locked...

1.  DO - Keep the number of your outbound links within the content of your lens to Amazon (or any other specific site) below nine...

2.  DO - Stay away from topics that might make the prudish among us blush...

3.  DON'T - Include outbound links to sites that promote illegal activities...

4.  DON'T - Link to sites that are essentially affiliate spammers...

5.  DO - Avoid links to Blackhat SEO websites, dating websites, paid people finder sites,  reverse phone lookup webpages and other questionable sites such as these...

6.  DO - Use the easy to use money making modules (e.g. for eBay) that make blogging at Squidoo so easy breezy, fun and lucrative...

7.  DO - Link to your personal (where you have some freedoms to share information that wouldn't get you dropped from Google AdSense, as you like) blog or website near the top of your lens/article...

8.  DO - Choose topics that are easy for you to write about, so that your content will be plentiful and unique...

9.  DO - Backup your Squidoo lenses just in case you decide to republish it after tweaking the content...

10. DO - Stick with Squidoo and test different angles to leverage your time and efforts to first of all drive traffic to where in the long run, you will make more money over time...

In summary, write great articles/lenses with useful and unique content so that you can create buzz to market your own blog or website above and before others, including Squidoo...Ultimately, you will have no regrets because you did your best for yourself and YOUR success will follow...

In the end, Squidoo may not be directly where you make the bulk of your money, but it should definitely be a catalyst to help you make more money online...
