What the Heck is Squidoo?

You may have already heard of another online community site called Squidoo. It’s basically another site where you can create pages using a simple interface and join groups and connect with others who are interested in similar topics. I suppose it’s a typical social networking site. I don’t have a whole lot of experience with these, but I do find them interesting.

Since I’m definitely interested in the blogging community, I set up a page (called a lens) at Squidoo called The Blogging Community to see if it would attract any interest or traffic. It only took a few minutes to set up and I was able to easily embed an RSS feed from this blog into the content. What’s kind of cool also is that Squidoo will share advertising income with you based on the traffic to your lens.

If you get a chance, go check out The Blogging Community lens and let me know what you think.

    I don’t really “get” squidoo. I haven’t really spent much time playing with it admittedly, but I don’t think I will. I haven’t really read one very positive review of it; just a bunch of people saying they spent the time to set it up, and don’t have much to show in terms of traffic or revenue. If it doesn’t get me traffic or money, why would I spend the time?

    I’ve heard much the same thing, too. I don’t know if it was really worth the effort, but I didn’t take me much time to set up both my lenses. I also joined a few Squidoo groups that had overlapping topics with my lenses. I’m curious as to whether that will generate any traffic for me. I really see the whole thing as an additional opportunity to make a few bucks and drive some more visitors my way.

    I’m starting to pull out of the google sandbox now and search engine traffic is picking up a little bit for this blog. Anything I can do to help that along will increase my profile. I also tend to think that it’s a good idea to check out what’s going on in the social networking community, even if it turns out to be a dud. I’ve spent way too much time already being behind the curve…
