    Hello BHW,
    I always worked with YouTube when it comes to gaining traffic for the clickbank products I'm promoting. Now I want to get some organic traffic.
    I plan on writing 2x 300 words articles linking to my money site once and use those for about 20 different web 2.0s. I will then submit those sites to RSS directions and maybe also create secondary 2.0s linking to my primary ones.
    As mentioned above, I promote clickbank products. My keyword has a medium competition and my lens is already ranking #4 for the term 'product review' - my lens is a well-written review and got me 4 sales yet. There's an EMD on #1 and on #2 and #3 are basic review sites.
    I don't plan to stay completely whitehat.
    Should I use spun articles or just take the same articles for every 2.0? Is it possible to claim the top spot with a squidoo lens? Does someone have experience in ranking lenses?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Sincerely,
    anfyd

    you can use spun articles for tire 2. be careful about the uniqueness and the redablity of the posts. I think that's enough for tire 2.

    Ranking lenses is the same as ranking any other type of website. You will also find that spun articles can be perfect for anything, if the articles are created manually and they are 100% readable.

    Could you specify what exactly is Tier 2. Excuse me, I'm kind of new to the whole SEO game.

    Tier 1 are the links you build to your money page and tier 2 are those pointing to your tier 1.
    For squidoo you can add 6 related lenses so what I do is creating another 6 lenses around the niche and add them as related lenses. This process helps in increasing PR and improving in SERP

    Anfyd, if you already have sales, stay away from Spun content, mate. Google's engine is powerful enough to even pick out semantics - spun content is nothing! If you were experimenting, it would not probably matter. But for a lens ranked on top, why spoil it? Also, Squidoo has its own metrics - it could pull you off rankings all by itself - then what Google does won't even matter!! All the best, and congrats on sales through Squidoo - not something we see everyday for a Clickbank product :violin:

    I have few lenses.. i promote CB products..
    i was shocked how far my lens went in rankings after only 20-30 fake likes on Squidoo(ofcourse i added some comments, twitter shares from youlike hits and some pins, but most of the traffic and tweets were fake)
    My articles are below average and i have only 5 widgets...very basic

    I am on first page of Google after 2 weeks i created the lens...i love it. Made some CB sales...while my website about exact same product cry alone somewhere on 45-47 page of G. lol

    Anyways...Squidoo lens is so easy to rank, even if you product is in high competition...i am even higher than website of actual product.and trust me its HOT(popular, how to make money one). Pm me if you need some help, and proof!
    Remember...Google LOVES Squidoo!

    Hope this help!

    Cheers! :)

    Glad I'm not the only one mixing those two things. Hopping to get some tips from you - do you have Skype?
    My first question would be where you got the Squidlikes from?

    If you write about new products that have just been released you stand a good chance of ranking well in a short time.

    Squidoo have their own adsense ads. So basicly...if you have any clicks on your lens..you can earn money as well... but tru Squidoo.

    Do you work on the medals etc? I find they really increase the traffic the more awards my lenses have
