    First of all, I'd like to welcome you to this journey.

    Now when that's taken care of, you're probably wondering "So what is this journey about?". Well, it's a JV project between InTh3Moment and me with a simple goal of creating a more-or-less autopilot income for both of us by creating multiple squidoo lenses and then ranking them. Yup, you've read it correctly, $250 / day autopilot income without even our own website. The beauty lies in the fact that once you start treating squidoo lenses like micro niche sites you realize that they can be very easily and efficiently ranked with 100% automated SEO campaigns.

    Naturally, we will split all revenue evenly. To make things more helpful and interesting for you guys, we will try to provide as much details as possible so you don't feel like you wasted your time after reading this thread. :)

    As with any project, this one requires 3 things: content, traffic & monetization.

    Content
    Each lense will be a 1000 words article targeting a set of 5-10 keywords, 1 main keyword with 1000+ searches and rest of them being long tail, < 1000 searches keywords. Also, each lense should have at least 2 relevant images and a youtube video if it makes sense to include one. The articles will be written by InTh3Moment exactly as seen here:

    Traffic / SEO
    Traffic will be coming mainly from organic search (SEO) and from squidoo itself as a bonus. We won't do anything to get traffic from squidoo as that will happen naturally. Instead, we will focus all our traffic generation efforts on SEO. This is where the autopilot part comes in to play as we will setup an automated SEO campaign for each lense that require minimal maintenance once started.

    Monetization
    This part is a 2-way thing. The lenses will be monetized by including relevant Amazon products but in the same time, we are looking to put 50% of our lense portfolio for sale. This helps to diversify things a bit and makes us less vulnerable to big G's algorithms.

    Right now we have 1 lense and the next step is starting a SEO campaign (as soon as it's indexed) as well as finding more keywords. As you can probably imagine, this is pretty scalable and once we iron out the process, we will be able to churn out new lenses and rank them really fast.

    Lenses created: 1
    Lenses sold: 0
    Revenue: $0.00

    I'm really excited that Hinkys chose me to be a part of this journey. I'm hoping that we can learn what works and what doesn't for Squidoo and other BHW members can benefit from our experience.

    Has anyone else had success with Squidoo lenses? What have your experiences been?

    Thanks for the kind wishes guys. :D

    As there's really not that much happening regarding this method on a day to day basis. (links are being built, lenses written and keywords researched :) ) I'll be updating this on a weekly basis with stats and notes.

    These few days we've researched keywords for 15+ lenses and InTh3Moment should be jumping on those as soon as his busy schedule permits him.

    Our first lense is still unindexed so no links are being built to it just yet. This is probably just because the squidoo account is new and it takes a bit longer for bots to find it. As the account gets filled with more lenses and we start doing SEO, new lenses should get indexed in a matter of hours.

    what style you will write your lense?
    - review/description/problem solving focus etc

    As I know Squido has a lot of ads coming with a lense, why not using your websites?

    The lenses will be all over the place, we're yet to test different types of lenses. As for using Squidoo, there's 2 reasons basically.

    1) Squidoo lenses are MUCH easier to rank (and to stay there) than new website pages would be
    2) You can openly sell squidoo lenses to other people

    It's a combination of social signals, tiers and internal squidoo juice.

    Thank you very much. :D



    So far it's been going slowly but next week should be far more work intensive. From the last update until now, we wrote 2 lenses and worked on our project plan, phases and "those little details". Phase 1 should finish with about 25 lenses and plenty of split tests which will be shared here and on my blog.
