    Hi,

    I was thinking about to make some squidoo lenses mainly for the backlinks to my MNS.

    i went through some post and would like to know if you think that i can make some money out of the lenses ?

    What do you think is it worth the affort ?

    I have had some time ago a lens in top of google. Recently I have built once for monetizing CPA offer. The advantage of using lens is that it offers you much privacy protection than a domain.

    Yes, squidoo may be a good source of backlinking as long as this is not the only source...you should diversify your links.

    If you are saying making money by replacing mns with Squidoo lenses I say that it can be a pretty good alternative, once there you automatically gain a seo boost from the domain and all the links inside squidoo pointing to your lens (from tags, others...), it's free, anonymous, extremelly simple and you can blast the *hit out of your lenses with backlinks and it's much more unlikely that google will penalize you.The bigger downside is that you'll be sharing a big part of your revenues with squidoo, also you don't really own anything squidoo can take all your lenses away any second...If you are saying making money by using the lenses to create backlinks then I really don't see a downside there as long as you don't over do it.Hope it helped, cheers!

    Yep you absolutely can! I have 100 well made lenses that bring in $250/month in squidoo ad revenue.

    Then I have another 500 non-optimized amazon product-related lenses that bring in $50/month in affiliate commissions.

    I made the mistake of going quantity over quality. It worked out in the long run. Now I just have to do some SEO work on them to make even more money.

    I definitely feel promoting your own website is best.

    However, I find Squidoo is easy to make extra cash with and get backlinks at the same time. The key is low competition, laser focused product lenses.

    But you dont want to spend hours on backlinking them. So pick the "low hanging fruit".

    Just be sure to read the list of Squiddonts so you dont waste time making lenses on topics they won't publish.

    Right now Google loves Squidoo and lenses are pretty easy to rank if you did your keyword research right.

    Of course you can make money, traffic is traffic, a website is a website.

    If you want to see any money come in, i recommend making at least 10.

    There have been a couple of shares in the DL section over the last few months about monetizing squidoo lenses. May want to do a search over there.
