NEW Squidoo Categories and How to Cash In

by 14 comments
Hi Warriors!

I wanted to share with those who may not know yet, but Squidoo launched several new categories – here they are as well as what purpose they may serve you:

1.) Books – I believe someone said more books are sold on Squidoo than anything else. And judging from my Amazon associate stats, I believe it!

2.) About me – Branding and authority in your niche. ‘Nuff said.

3.) Humor – Not sure how this can be applied, but possible politics or commission on action based programs?

4.) Home & Garden – a big niche in itself, promote tangible gardening or home items or eBooks on the topics from PDC and CB

5.) Religion & Spirituality – Lots of main niche topics are tied into spirituality, such as marriage and weight loss. Combine the two for a narrow target audience niche lens and sell tangibles (motivational journals) or eBooks

6.) Work at Home – yes, we have our OWN bona fide category. Possibilities are endless here – IM, MLM, you name it.

7.) Green Living – everyone’s into this topic now. Goes well with water for gas lenses, gardening, parenting, etc.

8.) Pop Culture & Celebs – sell books, collectibles, or cash in on traffic form scandals – I love it!

9.) Squidoo How To – Promote Squidoo products (there’s plenty of them out there)

10.) Duels – start a debate – this is kind of like Monkeybrain. Get people fired up about a topic like smoking in public and promote smoking cessation products on it.

    Yay for new categories, and thanks for the heads-up Tiff! I've gone in and recategorized a lot of my lenses, it'll be interesting to see how the ranks shake out.

    Yes, thanks for the heads up. I need to revamp some lenses anyway, now I may have to swap categories.

      Hmmm... Pop Culture and Celebs huh? Normally I put mine in People. My primary account is filled with Celeb Lenses. That will take a long time to re-categorize

      But, then.. are People and Celebs technically different?

    the new categories at Squidoo are definitely something that everyone should capitalize on.

    thanks Tiff and thanks Squidoo for finally implementing a system like this!

      I moved over all my Celebrity Lenses to the new category. Not surprisingly they were ranked higher in their category than they were in People :p I really work hard on these Lenses and my top ones are really celebs I care about, follow their career, and promote whenever I get free time to.

      So far I'm liking the new category and now wonder what "People" will be used for if not a famous person, which would now land in Celebrity :p

    Oh Tiff! I am so excited about this! Thank you so much for taking the time to come and let us know. Now to go and make a Squidoo Lens...

      I've been making use of a few of the new features over the last few days. They needed to add the new modules and I'm glad they have more in the works. Thanks for the update.

    Great! I am really excited about the work from home category- now, off to research some killer keywords and writing a new lens! :-)

    Thanks so much, Tiff. I have a few Squidoo pages, but I can see that I need to take them more seriously. Right now they point to my blog which is where I monetize. But I see now that I am really missing at opportunity.

    Cheers for taking the time to share!
