In the post that I made a few days ago about getting more from your Squidoo marketing, I spoke about a new group of posts that I am going to make about blogging and your Squidoo lenses. Part one is now ready and I hope that you put the lesson into practise and keep looking out for part two.
Once you have set up a great Squidoo lens by following the advice that you find on this blog about How To Use Squidoo you’ll find that you can rank highly in the search engines for your keywords. You can then move forward with your campaign and really start to dominate the search engines.
**If you have a lens that is already in Google and getting found it will make this process much easier – if you have yet to get traffic to your lens from Google, I suggest that you spend some time making sure your lens is working as well as it can and optimize it.**
If you are getting traffic to your Squidoo lens it means that people are searching for your term. This is great, but what you need to really know is if people are spending money in that niche. First, find out what term people are using to find you with by logging into your Squidoo account and going to ‘stats’ and then traffic for your lens.
Once you arrive at your stats page, you can look and see the keywords used (covered in the above image to protect niche) to find your lens. From there you are able to then see where you rank in the search engines.
Take a look for how many sites you see promoting in the ‘sponsored’ section on Google and keep a note of it. In a few days time, do the same search again and see if the same sites are still advertising in the sponsored section of Google. If they are – those sites are earning money. No one will continually pay for those listings if they are not making money from them. This is a great indicator that there is money to be made in that niche.
When looking at your stats within Squidoo, take the top three keywords and then aim to dominate the search engines for those terms.
In part two, we’ll take a look at how you can use a blog to take a few more spaces on the first page of Google. If you have any questions regarding this part, feel free to leave them in the comments section and I’ll do my best to get back to you.
