    If you use Squidoo or thinking about using it for articles, there is a site that greatly enhances your success. It is http://squidutils.com/ and it allows you to check your lens health (basically the equivalence of SEO). Also, it gives advice on how to improve your articles (i.e. keyword insertion). Give it a shot...

    Read The Following Steps If You Want To Further Increase Squidoo and Blog Traffic

    If you've ever pulled you hair out over how to come up with new ideas for fresh content you can add to your blog, lens, or if you needed new ideas for article writing, then I have a resource you may not have considered.

    Step #1 - I'm going to assume you have built a squidoo lens in the same niche as your blog and you have at least a small drizzle of traffic to your lens. They must be in the same niche in order for this to work properly.

    If you don't have a squidoo lens, then you should build one. If you don't know how to set up a squidoo lens that is properly monetized to make sales or how to drive traffic to your lens, I recommend you read the WA tutorial on Squidoo.

    Ok, in step #1, I told you that I was assuming you had at least a little bit of traffic to your Squidoo lens. Here's how to find those fresh content ideas.

    Step #2 - When you log in to Squidoo, you are taken to their dashboard. Look across the top of the tabs you are given and find the one that says "My Stats". Click on that.

    At the next screen find "Lens Stats" and choose your lens. You will then be taken to your lens summary.

    Find the tab that says "Traffic". Click on that.

    When you get to the traffic summary page, you will have the option of looking at today, yesterday, the last 7 days or last 30 days of traffic to your lens. I generally use 30 days unless my lens is really new and just barely getting traffic. This gives a better view of what phrases are most commonly searched in the last month.

    Scroll down until you see "Traffic Sources". To the right of your traffic source summary will be a list of keyword phrases or "tags". This is how people searching the web have found your lens. THIS IS WHERE THE GOLD LIES!

    Take these keyword phrases and use them as keyword focused topics for your blog, articles or lens modules. These are the phrases people are searching for in "real time" that relate to your niche. They are also very likely to be low competition keywords unless your niche is too broad.
