So you’ve spent time and energy building your Squidoo lenses only to find that no one else but you is there reading all your hard work! So what can you do if your Squidoo lens is not getting any traffic?
A top tip for increasing your Squidoo lens traffic is to make sure that your lens is ready to receive the traffic in the first place. You can read more about getting your lens in tip top condition at my lens How To Get More Squidoo Traffic.
Another great tool for helping you get the best from your lens is Squidutils health checker – a great tool for helping you get some essential parts right. It’s easy to become a little obsessed with this tool and you do need to just tackle one step at a time and not feel overwhelmed.
You know that you have achieved something when all the right hand side come back “Okay” like the image.
It took me quite a while to get through all my lenses but when I did it was fantastic.
Another great tip is to understand that your lens is not going to be built, ranking in Google and making sales within a few hours. Just like Google, Squidoo lenses take time to settle, you’ll probably notice that they can climb fairly fast in the first few days and then start to ease off.
So long as you keep working on your lens and trying to improve there is no reason why you won’t see good results. Just remember that lenses (just like blogs) can go up and down in Google too – this could be down to nothing that you can identify. I’ve had lenses that were pulling in hundreds of visitors per day just drop off the radar only to appear a few days or even weeks later as if nothing had happened!
Keep working hard on your lenses and aim to provide quality – good luck in getting traffic to your Squidoo lenses!
