    i think you have to add at least 5 modules before it gets published. Dont freak out when its not indexed and ranked within a few days as it takes a while nowadays but i have good results with creating lenses for a phrase below 50k exacts a months.

    Obviously ofcourse how tuff the cometing sites are...

    Now they want a lot of content onyour lens. There are many spam topics which won't get published. Just make sure that the keyword density is OK and there isn't much keyword staffing. It can also activate their spam filter even though your topic is "regular". If you did all that properly, then maybe they need more time to make your lens viral. Hope that it will help you a little bit. Cheers.

    i just checked the squidoo now it requires you to get

    • Get at least 20 SquidLikes
    • Get SquidLiked by a Giant Squid
    That makes it difficult i think then only they will publish the content or make your lens live.
    is hub page similar to squidoo or better.

    i also have that same predicament. use this following steps. and you might be on their featured lenses.

    1. Put in a title (of course :) and if a subtitle if you have)
    2. An introduction with an image (must be 100 - 200 words).
    3. On the main body of your lens put at least 2 images.
    4. delete the amazon and guestbook module.
    5. put on a youtube module (not a video module) and on the module, select the. "let me choose my youtube videos" something like that. and then you can put the url of the youtube videos that is related to your lens.
    6. put a BIG ARROW LINK module. then put there your anchor text so whenever visitor click on that link it will be directed to your site.
    7. a google news module would be of help but not necessary.
    8. customize your lens theme. select at the right sidebar menu for the themes.
    9. dont forget to put at least 5 tags on your lens.

    and there you have it. i want to check my lens if there is something that i left out but it seems squidoo site is down today i cant access them. i hope this one helps. :)

    be active. visit someone's lens and sign in on their guestbook or leave a comment. its all about interacting with others.

    Ok, I've tried blasting each Squidoo lens and even submitting each lens URL to some free directories and still no index. My final attempt at getting these lenses indexed is the following!!

    What I've done is created a txt file containing all the Squidoo URLs and popped that in a folder on my PC (VM).
    I've then gone to Scrape Box and created an XML file out of the URLs and popped that onto my server /squidoo.xml
    I've then grabbed as many RSS sites as poss and pinged each one with the XML feed.
    I've got about 100 pings in total.

    I would have hoped that about 10 after doing this they would be indexed, but still no luck! Sorry, but Squidoo is no longer for me and I assume Hub Pages will be similar..

    your lens is still in red ie is under construction that is why it is not indexed.
