    Okay a while back I made a squidoo lens for the forex market.

    Someone totally annihilated me with reports to squidoo that this was a spam lens. Okay so it was a major ranked on the search engine and it made me $100 within 3 hours of putting it up. in fact I will show you the website later though it is now totally changed.

    So anyway, I was pissed and decided not to think anymore on the problem (lens being taken down), so I just went on and did something else.

    I looked at the web address off and on and just recently I found it was back up and running with a new facelift and ranking! My ranking!

    here it is
    Code:
    [url]http://www.squidoo.com/forex--brotherhood[/url]

    Now heres what I do know, I know for a fact this dirty bastard took my website down right from the start. I know this because who the hell would ever use -- in their address! which by the way was an error on my part. So what he did was wait until the page was available and took it over once squidoo allowed the address to be used again.

    Okay I want to know how in the heck he did this, and how long exactly did he have to wait till it became available again. Is there a software out there that gives use information on deleted or old squidoo lens addresses we can get that have page rank, and if so I want one...lol...

    Anyway, I didn't go and do anything to the NEW owner of MY site, but I will tell you I was pissed. I thought I would share this with you all in case it helps someone down the road make a software that shows old squidoo lenses with pagerank... I would love to get my hands on that .

    Thanks for listening, and if you know of someway to search out old lenses with page rank please post it here for the rest of us so we can get busy :)

    I'm actually not looking for revenge of any sort, I would just like to get a software that shows squidoo lenses that are available. that were either taken down from squidoo themselves or just plain deleted.

    BIG BIG LESSONS

    1st. Someone should make a software that searches out spammed squidoo lenses, or deleted squidoo lenses.

    2nd. Have that lens watched for when it becomes available again

    Sheesh maybe I will hire a coder for this myself. I think it's worth it, since some people once they create their lenses they bookmark them, RSS feed them, OMG, you don't even want to know what I did to make this lens on the front page of google when the forex brotherhood hit the market. And now this bugger reaps the rewards with a PR to boot.

    wow, that's a real dick move...

    I don't think I would ever do this to anyone if they hadn't done it to me first...but I think you certainly have a right to do whatever possible to reclaim what's rightfully yours.

    Definitely a good idea for the banned lenses with pagerank searching tool too...that would be excellent.

    lol, some blackhats are blacker than others.
    That guy seriously hunted you like a sodding prey.

    I admire the technique but damn, that dude is heartless. lol
    And you don't even want revenge? I guess you know that possibly
    getting utterly screwed like that comes with the life.

    btw, thats a nice idea for that app :)

    First script digs through the serps for squidoo lenses and stores them in a database.

    Second script checks xx pages an hour looking for whatever words squidoo uses when a site has been banned or isn't created yet....etc...

    If you want to get really annoying you could check rankings and start reporting through proxies as step 1.5.

    Check out LensInspector
    Code:
    http://affilitools.com/lensinspector.php
    This is a free online tool that will help you find available lenses (hubpages too) using KWs. Results are displayed as "available" or "exists". Some of the "exists" have been abandoned & can be claimed, so be sure to click-thru the link.

    I checked the website and apparently that lens is locked. Is that the original url for your lens? Looks like no one is using it anymore.

    I agree that it is really heartless to steal someone's efforts like that, I would not do it.But I would track down the guy who pulled this on you and make his life a living hell, so he would think twice about doing it to others :D

    Woah now, this thread has been very informative! You got to read between the lines. If you've been trying to bank with squidoo as long as I have, you know the curves & players. KittyKat, if you haven't figured it out yet, pm me, I do believe I know who's behind it, just from the comments on this thread, and knowing the players.

    The same SOB tried to make my life miserable with his dirty deeds, while smiling and seeming helpful on the squidoo forum.
