What can Squidoo do for you?

 How to you get visitors to your brand new website?
So you just put up your brand new website! It looks nice, got some cool or pretty banners, you have all your products showcased just the way you want them. Best sellers up front! Big grand opening! Watching your traffic stats all day, waiting, waiting. Hey what gives... why doesn't anyone like my website?
Ah yes! You got it, you have to advertise. That's where Squidoo comes in. You can build a lens around your topic and link to your website, your blog, your facebook, twitter account, even use your videos from youtube.com
A Squidoo lens, if built right, can rank very well in the search engines for your keyphrase and keywords. They can get listed fast with just a little promotion and start driving visitors right to the front door of your website!

Check this out... My Squidoo lens about a hashbrown casserole recipe that we love around my house is ranked at #4 on Google for Hashbrown Casserole Recipe

Not to bad! I got one better...
My Squash Casserole Recipe lens is ranked #3 for the search term Squash Casserole Recipe.

I can go on and on showing you where I rank in Squidoo. Or, I could help you get yourself ranked there to! I am rebuilding lenses and building new lenses for clients right now! If you have some stale lenses sitting in your account, check out my webspage @ SquidBuilders.com and I will be glad to re work those lenses for you!

Got a Todays Best Award!

Today I was checking Zazzle and happened to look at the Todays Best page and about choked when I noticed  my Rock n Roll Skull Postage Stamp being featured! Wow and it is sitting in a brand new gallery too called Back Stage T-shirts and Gifts for rock n roll music lovers!
The tip I want to share here is that if you keep adding designs and starting new shops with new themes, you keep growing! You get awards and then that product rises in the market place. So far today I have 5 votes on a brand new postage stamp at Zazzle. Maybe it will make a sale soon!

Whats your 3 word keyphrase?

Squidoo Lens Help and Tips
The very first thing I think of before I begin any squidoo lens is "What will my 3 word keyphrase be?". When you build a lens, you need to focus on your chosen 3 word keyphrase. a 2 word keyphrase or a 4 word keyphrase are ok too, but 3 word keyphrase is optimal!
Then you approach your 3 word keyphrase every way possible. "3 word keyphrase" Videos, "3 word keyphrase" images, "3 word keyphrase" how to, "3 word keyphrase" ingredients(for recipe lenses), "3 word keyphrase" directions, and so forth! If you have chosen the right 3 word keyphrase, then you might just get lucky and nail that #1 spot on google for your "3 word keyphrase". Then the traffic Gods might shine down on your lens and send you many visitors!
There are many keyword tools sites to help you make a decision about what "3 word keyphrase" to use!
Google Adwords Keyword Tool
Search Based Keyword Tool

Those are two good ones to try out.

So next lens you start to build, ask yourself what your "3 word keyphrase" is going to be. Can you guess what my "3 word keyphrase" is for this post? Leave a comment and tell me what it is!
