Like topic subject says, can it have PR?
I hope so, mine's a PR2.
Your LENS has a PR2 or your LENSMASTER PROFILE page has a PR2?
I went to the homepage of squidoo and looked at some of the featured lenses. Most of them are from "giant squids" and the like. Most of their lens have PR but I din't find a single person whose lensmaster profile page had any PR.
I just realized that this thread looks pretty boring.
Perhaps I should have indicated WHY i care if lensmaster pages can have PR or not.
I've noticed on Squidoo that you can comment on someones lens and if your comment gets approved, there will be a DO FOLLOW link from their lens to your profile.
I would think that this is great as long as the lens you're commenting on has some decent PR.
If you did this on enough decent PR'ed lenses, then theoretically your lensmaster profile page would have PR (...I think...maybe my logic's flawed...)
And since you have control of what you place links to on your lensmaster profile page, and those links are DO FOLLOWs, then you'd be able to pass PR to your actual websites outside squidoo.
DISCLAIMER: -----THIS IS JUST A THEORY-----
Don't rush out and try this, I don't know if it works or not.
I've been looking at the lensmaster profile pages of some of the people who are "giant squid" and have 100s of lenses. I've still yet to find a profile page with a PR so I'm guessing this is a bust. But I'm hoping someone will come along and prove me wrong.
My lensmaster page is a PR4 by checking SEO Quake. I'm a Giant. Sorry to bust your bubble, but when you comment on a lens, your comment is automatically coded NO Follow by Squidoo, so putting your comment on many top ranked & high PR lenses will not get you any juice.
Even tho there's a link to the commenter's profile page, Squidoo code does not pass the juice.
The lensmaster also has the option to strip all html out of every comment on their lenses, and approve every comment before it is published on their lens.
Now, if you have a high PR profile page, yes I believe you can insert any of your other links outside of Squidoo on your profile page, and the juice will leak..............BUT there is no way for you to spam another lensmaster's profile page with your link...........except by joining their fanclub, which will put your avatar on their profile page. This might be great, if you could find someone that only has a few in their fanclub, and you've got a great avatar..........but highly unlikely, as the higher PR profile pages have 100's of fans.
Oh well, it was worth a shot I guess.
I use SEO Book's FF plugin which has a "highlight Nofollows" feature.
I noticed that when i had it turned on, my comments' link to my profile page were not being marked as "nofollows".
I see what you're saying about the lensmaster being able to remove the html that makes my comment's link a ********, but that assumes that they do that. It appeared to me that the default was to leave it '********'
Am I wrong?
If so, I don't understand why the SEObook plugin wasn't working (but that's another thread entirely).
Thanks for reply.
I don't know anything about your seobook plugin.
But about the code for the guestbooks, I posted on another thread here what I have found:
This is how Squidoo has automatically coded all the guestbooks:
<a href="http://www.squidoo.com/*******" title="*******" rel="nofollow">******</a>
Damn, I always think of something else after I post replies!
If you want to make sure of this yourself, just open up one of your lenses, and view the source code
While this may not work for getting on other's profiles, it does have some merit. If you put your links in your bio and you have some links in your bio, then these are follow links. Its also true on your profile page. I have PR on quite a few of my lens so this can help out a little.
Most lens are going to get some PR sooner or later, so if you created 100 lens and put your bio links in every one of them then you may have a methods to push a little juice your way.
