Not sure if many of you use squidoo for link building but with a little time lenses can build PR and even rank for keywords and drive traffic to your site. The down side is that squidoo can be a pesky bitch and lock your lenses after you have put a lot of time and work into them. Here in the last month or so they seem to have been cleaning house (at least with the dozen or so lenses I have)... Over promotional, low quality content, blah blah blah, so we locked your lens and your fucked. I guess they are scared of pandas, penguins, and whatever google will pull from their ass next. Maybe the "platypus" update from a bunch of platypussies! But anyway, to the point. If you get a lens locked all you really have to do to get it back with any PR and traffic from google is to delete it. You can do this in your account settings. Then use another squidoo account to create same exact lens (make sure url is the same)... Hopefully you copied all of your content and then you can recreate the same exact lens. This has worked for me every time except when the subject matter of the lens has been flagged as spam in their system. In that case I play around with the keywords or content and can usually pass the filters in most cases. Just thought I would post this for squidoo users.... Hope it helps someone out.
