I'm right on the verge of page 1. Checking the stats the traffic has been increasing daily. Only 10 days old. 75% from Google.
I've set up articles on hubpages, articlebase and ezine in the past, and done backlinking, and not got them anywhere near page 2. This has kinda surprised me with Squidoo.
I know the traffic is small, but it's in a nice niche. I have 57 unique affiliate clicks. No sales due to linking to the wrong product by mistake. Doh!
Once I hit mid page 1 traffic will me a lot more. But right now I'm really liking squidoo. Seems to get much more traffic quicker, and rank faster, than some of my personal sites, or other authority article sites and blogs.
Excellent for testing the waters.
