    Squidoo is garbage now, they locked a quality lense of mine that was making some money because it has "Suspicious Links". I only had 88 links and those were all solid quality links, I didn't even spam that lense. This is their message.

    "A large number of "nofollowed" links pointing to this lens were found. Avoid linking from blogs or forums where links are nofollowed due to high rates of spam.

    Because of the large number of suspicious inbound links on this lens we're locking it. Unfortunately there's no way to fix this problem so the lens will remain locked.

    The best advice we can give about suspicious inbound links is to avoid linking from places like forums or blog comments where untrusted links are typically "nofollowed" due to high rates of spam."

    Most Links On The Internet Are Nofollow Now, Idiots!!!

    So if I create 100s of spam links to a lens, it will be locked forever?

    Interesting. :D.

    I've got some lenses locked because of "repetitive and not original content" , by the way it was original text and set of local stories about touristic places near my location, described shopping zones for tourists etc, 6 videos recorded by me on various interesting places, on boat, on Cap Cana mountain, Bavaro Beach of 8 km clear sand , bunch of photos made by me on X beautiful locations, all in all 100 % original and interesting content! Not one word spuned or stolen, as a matter of fact I had found some photos made by me on some travel blogs. So, talking about their capability of judgement what is right or wrong or original/stolen/spam/whatever is totally irrelevant and far away from real picture. They have to learn a lot.

    squidoo wants original and unique contents in any lens.

    Squidoodoo! Make sure you update those lenses you can only have so many links on them. Also don't spin content here because I've been hit with that also. I've lost many year old money making lenses currently. They want deep lenses with no spam of any kind. My lenses take a lot more time to produce and pay less. Make sure you your profile picture is of a women, because men are not wanted or very well promoted in this community of giiiiiiirls!:p
