    I made a lens promoting a CB product.I tried some on page SEO stuff that I learn here and imagine it to be a webpage.The CB product is rather competitive and Im not sure how well I will do here.My questions are:

    How long does Squidoo take to approve or index your lens?Do I need to ping or submit rss feed to directories to quicken the process?
    Does squidoo have many unique visitors daily?The ones that actually browse around the site and not just backlink their sites.
    How do i increase my google ranking?Possible?
    Anyone make money directly off squidoo before?
    Should i build backlinks once approved?

    The unique thing is that they have this CB RSS feed that promote other CB products under your ID based on your chosen keyword as well.I know they are quite particular about certain CB products but ive searched my CB product on squidoo and there are similar lenses so I guess its fine.

    Not too sure if this is the right section to post.I will hopefully get a domain and webhosting soon.Just thought I tried in on Squidoo first.

    Thanks

    You won't need to to ping your lens in order for it to get indexed, they normally take anywhere from a few hours to a full day to get indexed. Same rules apply on whether your lens gets approved by squidoo or not. The key here is to not make your lens over promotional (meaning don't use the same affiliate link 10 times in the same lens).

    Squidoo gets tons of visitors daily... But you won't see many of those visitors unless your lens lands on the first page of google the specific keywords you're are targeting. In my experience, it's all about finding a good keyword(s) with low competition, but enough people searching with that term allowing you to get hits to your lens.

    Squidoo is a great place to start before hosting your own domain because lens's work a lot like websites. And with squidoo you have a great chance of getting on the first page of google because squidoo already has such a high page rank.

    There is pros and cons with using squidoo but If you do it right, there is definitely money to be made. Just have to find those awesome keywords!
