    This is the first time of posting in the Make Money section, and im shitting my underpants. :D

    I am going to give everyone a bit of method here i'm currently using with some success to earn dollars using amazon with Squidoo pages and getting page popularity in Squidoo rankings as well.

    Here goes:

    Find a popular video game for any of the next generation consoles that is going to be released in the future (3 to 6 months in future or other websites will have been created and started to show their ass in the rankings and maybe hard to kick them off).

    Look on video games retailers for pre-releases to get a good idea of what is coming out over the coming months. (Amazon on Squidoo is the US site only, so make sure you get the US game released dates and not UK etc), though PLAY.COM is a UK retailers they have the best pre-release chart i know and it won't take you long to find out when the game is coming out in the US.

    Check the exact name of the game on the Google Keyword tool and check if any initial searches are coming in for the game. You will probably find popular ones will have 500+ searches per day 3 or 4 months before release.

    Once you found a video game you would like to write a squidoo lens on, make one that asks a question (i.e top ten things that should be included in up and coming game) or causes a stir (i.e Is HomeFront Better Than Blackops?).

    The best layout i do is the intro module, with 5 text modules with 100-200 words for each, mixed with pictures with a couple of amazon modules below with relevant products, and either some kind of poll or guestbook at the bottom to create discussion. Don't forget to add some relevant keywords in the tags, so you show up in the squidoo searches as well as googles.

    Make sure the Squidoo lens makes sense, and isn't some shit and quite obvious spammy bollocks, or the method will fail coz you got your squidoo page squashed.

    Do a scrapebox blast and xrumer blast to the squidoo lens with the exact name of the game as anchor text. So you ranking is at least first page within a months or so because of the low competition. (Don't over do it though guys).

    This way when gamers know the game is about to be released one or two months before they will be searching for the game title on Google for details, and guess who got their pokers in the fire first and should be ranking for them to see with a pretty good question asking title on the first page. Yep me!!

    Its best to update the Amazon modules to reflect the game you are targeting is ready for pre-order, so you can earn some sneaky pre-order commissions. When the game finally releases and hordes of traffic are hurtling towards the game keywords, with a bit of luck you will be there and profiting from Amazon click-through and buys as well as other ad revenue.

    The great thing about squidoo is the more visitors your squidoo page gets, the higher in the squidoo rankings you go. I have been experimenting in the video games section on Squidoo for a while and i have achieved top 10 rankings in video games (before visitations dropped :rolleyes:) with around 300 visitors a day, so anything above this will mean more exposure on the Squidoo much visited pages.

    I have fully used this method with hubpages, but they ban hubs with too many blog comment backlinks, so ive adapted it for squidoo. Never had a problem with Squidoo and backlinks.

    So get making those lens.

    Good post, sucks that Amazon kicked my state to the curb though... You do any other monetization or typically only stick with Amazon? What about CJ? does EB Games or similar have affiliate programs?

    You got the concept a bit wrong, Squidoo is affiliated with Amazon.com and Squidoo gives you a percentage of the commission it gets in a profit sharing scheme, so it don't matter if your Amazon account is trashed because its all going through Squidoo.

    You get paid once a month, and also get a percentage of the total ad revenue share when visitors clickthrough on the ads on your squidoo pages. One of my lenses on Squidoo last month made $100 in just ad clicks alone.

    So the profit is there if you can get the traffic. Which my method does.
