Squidoo - Earn ad revenue by sharing information

2007/06/25 |

Make money online - SquidooSquidoo is an information centre where members build a web page (called a lens) on any information that they want to share. This page can point to RSS feeds, favourite links, Flickr, Google maps, eBay auctions, CafePress designs, Amazon books or music, and more. You use a template to create your lens where you personalise it by adding pictures and different modules.

How It Works
1. Join for free and build as many pages or lenses as you want.
2. You can use lenses to bring traffic to your other sites.
3. Your lens can be ranked by readers, the higher the rank, the higher it appears in Squidoo searches and more people will read it.
4. There are many modules you can choose to add to your lens to improve earnings such as Amazon and eBay.
5. Your lens earns by Google AdSense but revenue goes into a pool to avoid clickfraud, and half the pool goes to lensmasters according to LensRank and traffic.
6. Your content belongs to you.

1. You can write about any topic including adult topics.
2. Lenses with adult topics must be appropriately marked or it can get locked.
3. Lenses with spam will get locked.

Payment is by PayPal at the beginning of every month. You can also choose to donate to Squidoo’s charity or a specific charity.

The site can be very slow and buggy and patience is required. The interface can be confusing for newbies but after some tinkling around, you will get the hang of it. There is a good, active forum where you can go to for various tips for building your lens, getting more traffic or answers for further queries you may have.
