    First and foremost this is more of a noobs guide. Pretty much everything I give you here is free! There is no need to spend money on the internet in order to make it. It makes it a lot easier in most instances but not necessary.

    First thing you need to do is pick a product to promote with CB or find a good CPA offer that converts well. Then you need to pick some fairly non-competitive keywords. When I say fairly Im saying anything with 50K and under in quotations. I have been able to dominate keywords with more than 100K with this method. But I try not to pick anything that high it takes a little more work. Anyway here is the method.

    It completely revolves around squidoo lens. Right now I have 40+ lens. I recently was posting to CL but with all the new changes that has slowed way down so I started really experimenting with squidoo and I am more than happy with the results.

    What you want to do is create a network of squidoo lens. Right now my network is 40 and I am DOMINATING my niche on yahoo and google.

    This method does take a little work so I recommend you make one lens and go through the motions and make sure you have the patience to get traffic coming to at least one before you go lens making crazy. You should always try and focus on one lens then move to the next.

    Alright you got your keyword and your product and your ready to start your first lens. Create the lens with your content, here is probably the most important part of this whole strategy. Give people something they need. If they are searching for "how to successfully grow plants" give them some really good advice then nail them with the product. What this does is creates trust and value before you give them any kind of sales pitch. I promise you your conversions will sky rocket if you do this. I have tested this theory many many many times. Make your lens long put some thought and work into it. They probably take me about 2 or 3 hours to really make a nice lens with lots of quality content that is useful then the sales part to get them to buy.

    Now that you have your lens with quality content you need to start getting your link out there. This first one is harder than the others because you have not created your own network of lens yet. So start off with normal SEO methods like writing articles for ezine and submitted to social bookmakrs. Make sure to Digg and move on. As a matter of fact I am going to give the list that I submit to at the end of this posting. It has blogging platforms, social bookmarking sites and various other sites that make your lens look good.

    Ok what you want to do is create your lens and update it daily, and there is an easy way of doing this. Simply edit your lens and add 2 new keywords every day. If your too busy for that just try and do it like 3 times a week. After doing this make sure you go to pinggoat and ping o matic and ping your lens. Do this right after you get done publishing your lens. Make sure to publish every time you add new keywords. This will make the search engines believe you are adding fresh content.

    Once you start seeing some organic traffic from yahoo and google then your well on your way to getting good traffic. Keep updating and keep adding links. Rinse and repeat.

    Now that is the first step. Now what you need to do is keep making the lens and make sure that you interlink all of them. Squidoo provides you with a link list module, use it its great! It allows you to post a link with ease with anchor text. Always make sure to include your key words as your anchor text when linking your lens and all the other sites you submit to. Keep doing this and doing this. I recommend you spend enough time on one lens to at least see some organic traffic coming in. Usually they will steadily climb since you will keep adding links to the lens from the new ones you create.

    These lens will gather PR and become very strong links. My best lens right now has a PR4 and is getting about 100 organic hits a day. Most of my lens get between 20-40 organic hits a day for their keywords between google yahoo and other smaller search engines.

    My last lens I created I only linked to the other lens and it got search engine traffic coming in after about 2 weeks only updating and pinging. When your starting out also remember to post to other peoples lens. Make a good comment complimenting their lens and then post your link.

    You may want to consider changing the content on all the lens with an article spinner or just rewriting them. If you can come up with completely different content with each lens. This would be better but is not necessary. I did an experiement with about 10 lens one time and use the exact same content with just different key words and they are all still doing really good. So I am beginning to think that the dupe content rule may be a myth... Please do not quote me on that.. :)

    Also if possible use different IP's to create different squidoo accounts. Do not try and put all 40 lens on one account with similar content, they can find it. Use a free service like Tor or any of the other IP changers out there. This will ensure they dont catch on and start deleting your lens.

    Remember..
    Create Lens
    Add quality Content then sell. IN THAT ORDER.
    Link
    Get Traffic, Get Sales.

    If possible try and get an offer or a product that converts well. I have some lens that get 20 affiliate clicks a day but convert like 1/500 which is kind of depressing. But not all products are going to convert.

    Alright thats pretty much the majority of what I do, and as of right now Im making a nice chunk of money. Anywhere from 100 to 300 a day. Ive had much better days and much worse. But I promise you by the end of this year I could double that or even triple that. Just by rinsing and repeating.

    Here I have given you a solid method and its all free. There is NO reason that anyone new cant go out and start up their own network of lens right now!

    Here is a big list of all the sites I use to link to. Takes some time to submit manually but the pay off is WELL worth it!

    Press Release
    http://www.webwire.com/

    I hope its ok that I included links, I promise that none of these are referral links. This is how I have them listed so I can click on them. I recommend copying and pasting into excel for quick reference. Also use excel to track the links to your links.

    If your feeling like spending some money and using a more advanced technique try this!

    ***I HAVE NOT TESTED OR TRIED THIS***

    Although I have not tested this I really do NOT see why this would not work. What you want to do is buy Xrumer or another bot that will create backlinks. From what I see on these forums Xrumer is the best right now.

    Grab all the links you saved in excel from the sites you submitted to and start running these on Xrumer for some PR juice. Imagine if all your articles and blogs you submitted start to get some PR. I know PR does not have a huge weight on your SEO but the more backlinks your backlinks have the better. Not only this but you may start to see your articles and support blogs popping up in the search engines as well.

    Wow didnt mean for this to be so long. Anyway its bed time and I will try to answer any questions that anyone has!

    I hope this helps you guys! Remember tis the season for thanks!

    Ok someone just PM'd me asking for products to recommend using with high conversion. I told them this and I will say the same for the rest.

    Well I really do not want to share the products I am promoting. But what I can tell you is my conversions went through the roof when I starting adding a little value to my content. I was promoting a product on CL through CB that was converting at about 1/150 then I started up this method and I am converting at more like 1/20. Thats just one of the many products but it makes all the difference.

    Earn their trust then take their money!

    Great read man, I just got one question though.

    Could you possibly use Hubpages to accomplish the same task with Squidoo lenses?

    I assume you could use a similar approach with mass-creation of hubs.

    Thanks for the great Post. I just paid one of the Gurus lots of money to go through mentoring that pretty much covered what you had said in the post above. Thanks again.

    Just wondering... posting affiliate links in squidoo isn't allowed?
    Here's an example page I setup after following your guide, lol.
    Code:
    hxxp://www.squidoo.com/Clothes-on-Internet
    I don't really know wtf I'm doing :D
    and for some reason, it says I haven't created a lens yet in some parts of my profile.
    thanked cool guide

    this works great for some people so i'll give it a go.

    Squdioo is included in my next campaign (along with literally EVERYTHING else ;).) so i'm glad i got a little heads up before i started that!

    Even though you've not tried it, it's pretty sound advice. Do it and you'll start making some moola. Quite alot of effort is required unless you hire a freelancer to do the content for $1-3 a lense!

    First and foremost thank you very much for your kind words. This was my first big share here at BHW. Ive lurked until I learned and now I am sharing from experience.

    The most im going to give away about my niche is that its in the field of technology. I will not get any more specific than that.

    I didnt do any keyword research for your lens but here goes my advice for you.

    Number one is use your keywords. When you title your sections do something like this.

    Your Guide To Buying Clothes On The Internet: Where to find the coolest shirts.

    Your Guide To Buying Clothes On The Internet: What To Look for

    That way your contstantly using your keywords. Also use your keywords in your body and add some bold tags. <b>Bold</b>

    Second re-read my post. As a consumer I went to your lens and received absolutely no value what so ever. It was written a little lazy. Add some content. I want you to turn this lens into a top ten list.

    Top Ten Ways To Buy Clothes On The Internet
    Top Ten Ways To Get The Best Deal For Clothes On The Internet
    Ten Tips To Buying Clothes on the internet.

    These were just off the top of my head with no keyword research. Im sure you can come up with better. People LOVE lists use your first two tips or ways to really add value. Something like this.

    Ten Tips To Buying Clothes on the internet: Never Buy At The First Store
    Make this a whole module. Then...

    Ten Tips To Buying Clothes On The Internet: Check Sites Like Fat wallet . com.
    Here is more value being added.

    Now you have given them a tip to shop smarter and given them a site that they are probably going to love. You just added value to their internet experience. Now on your third strike!

    Ten Tips To Buying Clothes On The Internet: I Always get the best deals at these three stores.
    Now list your stores and descriptions.

    Now continue on and fnish your list. I PROMISE YOU if you do this your lens will be 100 times more likely to convert that visitor. Im not saying you will turn a profit, you still need to be promoting the correct affiliates. But this will help you a million.

    I cant begin to tell you guys how important it is to make sure you add value before you try to sell to them. Set the hook before you start to reel.

    And to Jammie I have done all of this before. The only thing I have not done is the part with Xrumer. That is just a theory but everything else is what I am doing right now!

    Also freelancing your lens creation is ok but after you get it make sure it ads some kind of value before it sells.

    Hope this helps some more!

    Quote make sure that you interlink all of them. Squidoo provides you with a link list module, use it its great! It allows you to post a link with ease with anchor text. Always make sure to include your key words as your anchor text when linking your lens and all the other sites you submit to.UnQuote

    How do you use this? I only just joined Squidoo.

    It is posts like these that get me coming to BHW every day. Its simply awesome that people share their methods when they can easily write up an ebook and sell it on dp and warrior.

    Following this method can easily get you a network of a few hundred sites in a few months with high pr to your main "money" sites. The other thing is that social networks provide their own traffic...so..its not all about relying on the search engines.

    Here's a couple of eb's on subject, the 2nd one is on hu*bpages but is Really good and principles can be applied to squidoo

    thanks.

    this is indeed grunt work if you're starting out form nothing.

    but for us and the rest, we can automate the process through some tools and outsourcing.

    When your in edit mode go to add modules and find the link list. It really dumbs up the process of adding a link with your anchor text. For your ad bodies you will have to find a block of HTML you can use.


    This is an image Link.

    <a href="YOUR AFFILIATE DESTINATION PAGE"><img src="YOUR IMAGE LOCATION" border="0" /></a>

    To find an image location, simply find a pic on the net you like. Right click on it and select properties. Go ahead and practice on the black hat world logo up top. Please do not use the black hat world logo just use it to see what I am talking about. After you select properties look for "image properties". Under this section copy and paste the location of the pic into the area I have marked as your image location.

    This is a regular link with your own anchor text.

    <a href="YOUR AFFILIATE DESTINATION PAGE" target="_top">YOUR ANCHOR TEXT</a>


    Also another great tip is add other modules. The more content your lens has the more powerful. If your doing a lens on golfing and a you tube video that has some golfing tips. Or better yet find a series of videos with golfing tips and create a module that has step by step instructions then have the video demonstrating what you were just talking about. Also add amazon modules and any other thing you find interesting. They have poll modules and ebay modules. Just go through the list and add some filler at the bottom of your lens. This will give it the appearance of having way more content. You can even just have amazon or ebay auto fill the goods on your lens. You could even just make a lens just for a joke! People love jokes and it will make them trust you more. People love a sense of humor and this is a great way to earn trust. Find a good golf joke and put it as your third or fourth module then right under it strike with a sale. Ive used this before and it really seemed to work.

    Hope this helps you guys out more!
