Squidoo Experiment – Week 3

I just finished up the 3rd week of my Squidoo Experiment. Sadly I didn’t earn a single penny from my lenses during the past week. I am not giving up, I made a goal to keep making them until I hit $1,000 a month so I will keep going until I hit a $250 week for two weeks in a row.

Despite this being a crazy week with 4th of July and then a sick 3 month old baby, I managed to get quite a bit done. I didn’t reach my goal of 60 total lenses, but I got close.

Lenses at the End of Week 2 – 44     Lenses at the End of Week 3 – 58

Earnings During Week 2 – $12.26     Earnings During Week 3 – $0.00

Visitors During Week 2 – 60     Visitors During Week 3 – 152 (search traffic only)

Even though I didn’t make any sales this past week, I did get more visitors so things are improving. Yesterday I made some changes on some of my lenses to try and improve Amazon conversions. Hopefully that will make a difference and I’ll have some sales in Week 4. My Week 4 goal is to hit 80 lenses.

    I don’t understand how Squidoo works.

    If I find a buying keyword which has a chance to rank on the first results search page is the idea to keep publishing posts targeting the exact same keyword until it does rank on the first results search page?

    Craig – The idea is to keep adding to your Squidoo lens to make it better over time. They need to be maintained. You cannot make a Squidoo page and then leave it and never worry about it again or it will eventually be deindexed and taken out of the search engines.
