I'm posting this for those of you who use Squidoo for affiliate marketing or backlinking purposes. As you guys know (or should know) Squiddy recently adopted a new policy change on 7/17/09 where among other changes, certain topics are now considered spam & longer permitted - weight loss, x rated topics, forex, win back your ex, music downloads, any 'miracle' cure topics, etc. Here's the link to the policy update lens: HTML: http://www.squidoo.com/squidoo-policy-update FYI, the update does NOT give a list of every topic they consider spammy, but from personal exp. over the last few days, I can tell you the new spam filter is VERY sensitive. Topics that no reasonable white hat would ever consider as spam are getting hit with spam reviews. So if any of you have 4 or 5 star lenses on 'affiliate marketing' or on any 'affiliate marketing program(s)', I would quickly move them to another platform before the Squid locks them. A Squidoo staffer replied to a post re: the spam filter -- said they will be locking spam topic lenses soon [I moved two 5 star affiliate marketing program lenses to Blogger over the weekend & am adding the individual lens modules as scheduled blog posts every 3 days]. The other thing you want to watch out for is the Clickbank products your linking to from your lenses. They're not banning CB links, but I imagine that if you're linking to products in niches they consider spammy, you'll trigger the spam filter.
