Hi, I made a whole heap of Squidoo lenses last year just to get ******** backlinks and never thought about them again. But I signed in the other day and found that I am at a high 'level' and heaps of my lenses are ranking well in Google and getting a lot of visits according to their stats. I have them all set to donate to charity because I thought that would help me stay under the radar while building backlinks. I am pretty good at writing SEO/sales/review articles and I'm wondering if it is worth making more lenses just to get the Amazon payouts? I can't be bothered trying to get websites ranked anymore, but I do like making money form SEO articles. Do they actually pay you 50% of the earnings from their Amazon modules? They talk about payments being added to the "lensmaster pool" which sounds like a shady way of saying that they only pay anything to their 'power users' - is this true, or can anybody get paid if somebody buys a product from the Amazon link on your Squidoo? Can you use your own Amazon affiliate links on Squidoo? Finally, is anybody here making money from Amazon + Squidoo? Thanks for any comments.
