My current article marketing campaign for my health web site is still marching slowly on, but I’m having a few misgivings about how successful Squidoo marketing can actually be. One of my visitors Moon Hussain, commented on an earlier post of mine that he had given up on Squidoo after having poor results.
My own observation is that my Squidoo lenses are receiving very few visits and don’t seem to rank well in Google compared to my articles on other sites. Now some of this may well be keyword related, or it may be that the lenses just need time before they begin to rank (if they ever do). As my keyword research has followed the same pattern as I’ve used for articles on other sites that are already approaching three figures in terms of viewers after a couple of weeks, I’m hoping they just need time.
However, as I really do want to try and make Squidoo work for me (I like the way the interface works and I enjoy putting lenses together), I’m going to experiment with a couple of more mainstream articles on subjects that are hopefully a bit more popular than my health niche.
To this end I’ve been researching the Squidoo Top 100 lenses and I’ve set myself a challenge to get one of my lenses into the top 100. I’m not sure how realistic this is, but somebody has got to be up there so why not me!
Even if I don’t make it, it will be an interesting experiment to see what type of article gets traffic and what sort of revenue a more popular lens can generate.
Wish me luck!
