I saw a huge jump both in traffic and earnings from my Squidoo experiment this week. I noticed that going for keywords that don’t have any other Squidoo lenses targeting the same phrase works best. I do go for some phrases that have 1 competitor if that lens has very little unique content on it and I know I can do a better job.
Lenses at the End of Week 4 – 81 Lenses at the End of Week 5 – 90
Earnings During Week 4 – $14.60 Earnings During Week 5 -$92.40
Visitors During Week 4 – 327 Visitors During Week 5 – 893 (search engine traffic only)
Even though I wanted to hit 100 lenses, I decided it would be better for me to create 1 lens per day that is extra long and jam-packed with information that targets different related keyword phrases. That way I get more visitors to less lenses. The Squidoo lens I created yesterday had over 20 modules.
I am so excited to see my traffic more than double yet again this past week. I am having so much fun with this project.
Looking forward I have heard some really good things about Zujava and I think I may try them for my next experiment. From what I have heard they rank well in the search engines and don’t have as many competing pages for keyword phrases as Squdioo has. Maybe I’ll save all the great keywords I’ve found that have too much Squidoo competition and use them over on Zujava.
