    I did the whole thing with adding squidoo lenses, I copy the technique from the masters over there. took advice from a few posts from here as well.

    I have 25 lenses up and it shows I have not made a dime from squidoo. I have maga mega hits and people are even starting to hit my max bounty ads and some of my CB ads I am getting hops.. I write book reviews with amazon on them and right now I have made nothing, no money, zero, ziltch.

    I do the friend thing I post comments on other lenses, I spend days on end doing awesome lenses and nothing...

    What am I doing wrong, is it a waiting game with them? Do I have to do 20 - 100 more to start to see results?

    I'm just wondering what I am missing here, can someone tell me what they do to make squidoo work for them?

    Thank you !

    Maybe the problem is in how you are trying to push the product to people?, you cant make it seems like all u want them to do is buy something. The best thing to do is only "reference" products while giving some useful free information. Would you mind posting a link to a lens so i can further analyze the issue?

    actually I dont push them, I dont want to post a link to my lenses because of what happened here a while back... lets just leave that as that...

    but.. I never push products on ppl, ever I actually get into a convo about the product and have no more than 3 links pointing to other websites. they are reviews as well where I talk about the product... out of the 25 lenses I have I only have 2 CB products the rest are different things like twilight movie and crap like that

    I was wondering how much squidoo is going to pay me though. and when does it show up on your YOUR ROYALTIES (10/01/2008 to 10/31/2008)

    Do we have to wait a month? I know I made $0.08... But I am sure some of the people coming from google hit the google ads on top of lenses and maybe I might have sold a twilight book or something.... when does it show up and how much do people usually make with 25 lenses, should I go onto making the 300 lenses I planned?

    Don't promote CB products. CB is scamming people. Promote products from other affiliate networks. Also if money doesn't appear in the lens list, it doesn't mean you haven't earned anything. After a month you get info on how much you have earned from people clicking on adsense on your squidoo lenses.

    You normally get a conversion ratio of around 1 conversion to 100 clicks with CB
    then for the cpa offers (if your using freebies) then its around in in every 20 or 30 ive found :)
    But it does depend on your sales copy.....your tags you could re-look at to make it target the people in a buying mood who want to buy a similar product but then see your lense and now think woow for free.

    Best of luck to you but it does take a lil bit of time and sometimes is just luck. You could also look at whats called squidoo domination which basicly means you make 10 to 20+ lenses all on the same subject/niche... then whenever someone visits your site and doesnt find the info they need they look again or they see the related lense section and click on what should be another one of yours.... + you get traffic from the other lenses into your ring of lenses = the visitor bounces round all lenses untill they eventually convert :p

    Thank you all, I have given you props for your help!
    I usually get around 30-40 people at my sites each day, sometimes only 4
    So I think I am kind of doing the squidoo domination with 4 of my 25 lenses I really like that idea.

    Once I get some time I am going to dominate a niche, I already got all the squidoo lens with the keywords as my links.. Just a matter of setting up the lens with content now.
