I've never earned more than $8 from the Squidoo adsense share program, though I realise that's not where the money is. Most of my niche topics don't get very much traffic at all and even when they do get traffic they don't convert very well.
In fact the lens that gets the most traffic is a personal interest lens that is almost impossible to monetize.
The only way I can make money from Squidoo is to jump on a hot trend and I have had some success with this but it's intense, time consuming and the rewards are often short lived.
I have 65 lenses and I am asking myself if it's really worth continuing with? I love the concept of Squidoo but when it comes to making money with it, is there something I don't know? How is everybody else doing with Squidoo?
