I have a squidoo lens that i am trying to get high ranking for.
Mywirelessrep A network Marketers Dream, Mywirelessrep Makes History

I got it on the second page of google but i can't seem to get it any higher. Do you recommend adding new text modules to my exisiting lens or should i create a whole new lens when i have some more content to write about?

You suggesstions will be appreciated.

    I would build more back links to your squidoo lense.

    You can link from places like YouTube, hub pages, MySpace, or any other authority site should pull up your squidoo lense.

    If your squidoo lense isn't linking back to your own sites and your linking just stops there pretty much, then you should probably work on building back links to your squidoo lense.

      Adding new content will certainly help.

      How about trying bookmark the page over at digg or other social bookmarking sites? There's a great tool called onlywire.

        I have bookmarked it and i am building alot of backlinks to it and its definately working but i was just wondering if it's a good idea to create new modules and to have fresh content on there almost like i would with my blog? Or do i just make another squidoo lens around the same keywords and link them together?

          Hi there,

          I'd say add some new fresh unique content and continue building backlinks from quality sites and that should help.

          You may want to consider analysing your competitors sites to see where they are getting links from - that might help you too.

          All the best

            Yes adding backlinks is the key..

            You can use high PR sites to add backlinks to your lens ..sites such as blogger, wordpress, usfreeads, wikispaces, ezinearticles, asociatedcontent and more...

            Cheers,
            Anup

                Yes. You need to keep adding content. If you have the time to publish on a daily bases, it will push you rankings up.

                Because Squidoo is a social site, you also need to visit other lens, leave comments in the guest book and include a signature link that goes back to your lens. This will create a backlink and the lensmaster of that site will then follow that link back to your lens. The more this happens, (more traffic) the higher your ranking will go.

                Hope that helps.

                    It is common Squidoo etiquette, that when you leave a link after your comment that the lensmaster will click that link back to your lens. You would leave your link in HTML code. Here is an example of how you do that.

                    <a href="http://www.squidoo.com/YourAwesomeLens" target="_blank">The Name of Your Awesome Lens</a>

                    Squidoo will automatically link your user name back to a list of all of your lens. By leaving a signature link, like the one in the example, you are letting the lensmaster know what lens you want them to visit.

                    anyone knows, if getting rated will help?
                    Getting ranked in Squidoo doesn't help your rankings in the search engines. It helps with your Squidoo popularity for Squidoo searches.

                    Your keyword tags, the use of keywords in your content, the amount of visits to your lens, the amount of backlinks to your lens all help with the search engines.

                    As far as the more lens you have the better, that is what will generate you more money from Squidoo. Squidoo will pay you once a month for any money that your lens has generated. So, the more lens you have the more adsense ads get clicked, the more Amazon or Cafe Press sales you make, etc. then it goes without saying that you will earn more.

                    If you click on my Big Island of Hawaii link in my signature, you will see what an effectual lens looks like. I get anywhere from 100 to 200 visits a day from natural searches that come from Google, Yahoo, MSN and some smaller search engines, which isn't too bad for a lens. The ranking of this lens fluctuates back and forth from #1 to #5 in travel. It depends on how much time I have to work on it. Usually I can only spare once a week.

                    Hope that helps.

                    Aloha,

          I hear tell that the more modules you have, the better. Since the text you have in your current modules is moderately long, consider breaking up the MLM piece into Part 1 and Part 2. Add more modules about related content, too.

          Consider titling your Guestbook.

          Finally, check the health of your lens here: Health Check for Squidoo Lenses [Beta]. Your tags need work.
