    Squidoo is run by a bunch of fucking retards!

    I spent a couple of hours yesterday creating a nice article as if I was just telling a personal story, obviously related to my niche. I checked several other similar article so I would be complying with any rules and my article was similar in design to them.

    I included only 3 links in the article and a couple of pictures and videos from my site and several others from other sites.

    Today I receive this:



    The only advertising on my site is from amazon and adsense, no illegal or adult content and I am not breaking any of the other rules they are stating.

    I'm not going to lose any sleep over this but there is no option to question why they are just stating that my lens has been removed and thats that. Basically tough shit!!

    It's rather funny actually, I'll just copy the content onto another site anyway but my guess is squidoo isn't even worth the time.

    Is a link from them still worth the effort. may be but definitely not on the top of my SEO strategy list.

    It was probably the Amazon stuff on your website that caused Squidoo to do that. They seem to be getting more and more harsh with their rules nowadays :(

    Building a lens was your first problem. Not copy/pasting the article once it was done was your second.

    TBH I couldn't care less why, it's just the fact that they offered no reason for this and gave me no opportunity to appeal or even question why.

    I can still access the content myself and I did keep a copy anyway so not a problem.

    I haven't used them for years either, to be honest I'd actually forgotten they existed but I came across the name in a list of sites to submit articles and thought why not. I'm surprised they're still around though as I never see any of their stuff in search results any more.

    Was thinking this myself, created my last lens in 2012. Wouldn't hook up that shit again for no amount of cash!
