I've been checking numerous social networking sites and came across Squidoo. The content you make there seem to get good presence on search engines. Has anyone else used this? How do I improve another sites SEO by using Squidoo?

I just created a profile to get a few links to my site. It's a high ranked page, and will no doubt help boost your results.

They have a nicely formatted page and I built a lens for my bookkeeping service at Squidoo last year. This is the link http://www.squidoo.com/crosscountry if you want to check it out.

It doesn't cost a dime and is very presentable and easy to set up. Even if you have a website [as I do] it doesn't hurt to have other places to get a little more exposure.

Hmmm.... I don't know about Squidoo anymore. Granted, it has been an excellent place in the past to help you get traffic to your site(s), but now Google is laying the hammer on Squidoo. Because of the amount of spam that is appearing on Sguidoo nowadays, Google is not considering it as much as an authority as it used to. It has been dramatically affected (in a negative manner) to Google Dances.

Thanks for posting it, Paul. Looks good!! I made one back in January:
http://www.squidoo.com/hideout_lake_ariel_pa

I should make up some more but just haven't had the energy - there are so many things to keep up with.

It did get a few views, and I even earned 41 cents since January!

Hey, did anyone ever wonder why the cents symbol is misisng from our computer keyboards????

LOL I did. it doesn't make cents does it. I have never used this ^ symbol, maybe they should replace it.

I made them quickly and it was mostly for links. I think you need to spend a lot of time to actually get anything from them.

i think squidoo is good if you are an affiliate marketer. if you have favroite books that and like to write great how to articles, you can make an extra income with their site. as far as generate long term business i don't think it will do unless you are an author selling a book.

Best I've seen so far from squidoo is a PR1 on a page that's not their own.

Not that a PR1 isn't important, it would take a PR0 right off the bottom.

A more useful link or page would be a post on a forum that allows your URL in the signature. It has to be a popular enough forum to have solid pages cached with responses to them. There are plenty.

You need to put the uniques content otherwise squidoo will not approve your lens. Your lens should be interesting enough so that everybody take a look to your lens.

Squidoo is a good platform for sharing the new ideas about any topic. Squidoo is also a good option for generating traffic or brand popularity over the web.

Have a squidoo page but have not used it much in the recent past.There seems to be varied opinion on its effectiveness in SEO in this thread.So for me will do more research before i become active user of squidoo.

Squidoo lets you build pages or “lenses” around topics about which you’re passionate. A good lens can pack a surprising amount of information onto one page; it can also let you build links back to your site from a very popular place on the web.
Many Squidoo links are nofollow. Because of this, they’re not going to pass link juice to your website, so they won’t help your ranking in Google. Now this doesn’t automatically mean your links in Squidoo will be nofollowed; the site seems to use some kind of algorithm to determine whether it will make your links nofollow or dofollow, and whether your lens will be “featured.”
Squidoo lenses may also have purposes beyond building traffic.

Really? I didn't know that squidoo is a product of S. Godin. I like Godin's marketing insights. No wonder why squidoo has built such an amazing rank in the searches.

I have used Squidoo for other purposes and have tried many different things and tracked the progress. The first thing you need to do when it comes to Squidoo is take your time making your lens and make it good.

As far as SEO and Squidoo are concerned you should choose your keywords before you start and place them through out your page as you would on any webpage. Rule of thumb is keyword 1 time for every 100 words.

When it comes to using Squidoo for backlinking purposes you should build your lens and include a link or two to your main website. Next place links in places like the authors resource box of an article that links to your Squidoo lens. So the linking structure will be from your article to your lens then to your main site. This helps your rankings and should bring some traffic to your site.

Hope this helps!

I didn't think about using Squidoo for SEO purpose, but now I'm convinced.. It is pretty confusing at first though, all the lenses. I should just play around with it for a while and get use to it I guess.

Yeah it is definitely a dinosaur, but you can still get decent dofollow links from there. Unfortunately the pages themselves just don't rank anymore. Right now one of the better user content generated sites that does rank would have to be BuzzFeed.

I agree on some points like that squodo is the best website to post the content but not easy to create any lance there because there are many guidelines of that that we have to follow. If we talk about the quality then search engine give special preference to the squodo. We ca improve referral traffic from their.

Suidoo was bought by hubpages and all of your lenses and posts are being migrated over to the hub page site. Squdo is gone.

Yes, Squidoo is a good site for getting traffic as well as for SEO purpose. You can use the social bookmarking technique for doing SEO in this site.
