    Calling this day1 because of all the shit thats just went on so im going to everytime i post a new method or help kinda thing for people its going to have a different day in the title.... starting with day 1 and i wonder how far i can get..... Hopefully after a few of these you will all understand and i wouldnt waste my time on them if it wasnt needed.

    So lets begin :- Day 1

    CPA + Squidoo

    Now this is a short method.... short because i dont want people stealing my niche (dont worry you wont steal my money) or just copying it exactly you need to add a twist to make big money on this.

    1st - CPA you need free offers of anything.... you choose your niche or category etc but needs to be free (i think).

    2nd - You need a squidoo account to make some lenses and preferably some squid experience.

    Now if you have these two thing you can move on...

    Phase one choose your niche (for example free samples of soap)

    Now your lense will be in the shopping category (works best) and needs to have a good catchy (longer) title and short url (url isnt that important)

    Next you need to add some content (make sure you use an image and text format etc)

    Now time for tag research to get some traffic..... go and search for lense similar to yours.... and literally copy all of their tags (if they are all relevent).... Eventually this will mean that your lense will appear on other peoples lenses in the 'explore related pages section' meaning you get good traffic for free....

    Your lense must be maxed and i suggest you dont have the explore relaed pages addon to your lense as you may loose conversions but its up to you.

    Enjoy :) (Oh and i setup my lense the other night in 30 mins and left it came back today and found i had 20 clicks (only had 5 tags) and 4 conversions meaning i made $5.60 (small money but i hadnt even optimised let alone finished the lense yet)....

    Oh yeah and thank you thank you thank you *hint hint*

    Chaw dood I use it but use clickbank . Conversions are not as high but the payout is not that bad . I get 20.00 a sell usually get one sell every day or 2 . Not bad for just setting it up and letting her rip . Very simple .. This can also be done with others Like hubpages as well .

    I tend to get more traffic on my hubpages than squids .But that is just me I quess . certain programs work better on squids than hubs . People are more apt for free stuff on squids so if ya have a squid with low cost or no cost items you are GTG .

    Hubpages people will take free trials and clickbank usually does half decent as well .

    Just an idea for everyone . Note to you NOOBS hubpages is complately free squidoo is completly free no cost to you . You can get all this set up in a matter of minutes all for free . And make money for free.

    Hubpages do not like affiliate links and hubs of advertising nature, so it might not work as well with hubpages.

    So you're not doing any SEO for your niche and getting 20+ clicks/day? Are you using low hanging keywords? Not looking for your specific niche just wondering as I have found it difficult to get traffic from squidoo.

    As i explained before the tags section for your lense is key to the sucess of your lense.... you are going to be getting all internal traffic.

    Dont waste time doing keyword research the normal way as lense owners dont do that either.... the tag feature is just so that you appear on other peoples lenses and so get traffic.

    Also another good way to get more traffic is to join related groups (very small traffic) and also post comments in other peoples lenses saying 'great lense here.... my lense is blah.com/blah thanks again' or something similar and then you could get some more traffic like that.

    SEO in the freebie niche is very saturated but getting traffic from inside squidoo and letting others do they work isnt.... i think i might write an ebook on this method in full and get a few copies sold... of course it will be free or partially free here depending on how i run the show.

    They allow affilioate links some the best hubs have affiliate links on them . that staement is incorect . What they do not like is spam hubs . I.E. overloaded with affiliate links .

    I think the max amount of aff links for hubs is 3 per hub if they are well placed and non spammy . Give me a few and I will pull up some hubs there is even one for senuke ...

    I checked it after 24 hours of it being not even fully finished and having just 5 tags that i added quickly.... and i had made $5 approx
    Now im on $9 approx and have finished making my tags... changed the title slightly and am receiving clicks from other lenses now too :)

    1. Sorry imma newb when it comes to squidoo where are the tags located on a page?
    2. I see related pages but where is the tags to copy?
    3. Also does squidoo let you create unlimited lense?
    4. Do you use text links or just banner ads?
    5. How do you know you are receiving clicks from other lenses?

    Thanks
