last week i create one Squidoo lens (link is in my Signature)..

I got 100+ visits within 5 days even without sharing else where excepts (Warrior forum, Pinterest)..

Plus I got 30+ Squeed likes, FB likes, Tweets etc. as well..


Here is my question to Squidoo masters..

Are these results fair enough for the person who just started squidoo???

NOTE: Before this I did not have any real experience of using squidoo


2nd question is what should I do now to get more and more traffic on my lens?

    Hi,

    The results you got are fair - in order to increase the traffic you get I suggest doing a bit of SEO.

    1. Do some keyword research. Find some keywords related to your niche (online universities) which have low competition.
    2. Optimize your current lens for those keywords, or even better create a new lens for each of those keywords (most basic stuff - use the keyword in the url and in the title)
    3. Track your Google rankings for those lenses.
    4. Create some links to the lenses (e.g. Youtube video for each lens, interlinking of lenses, links from other web 2.0 properties etc.)

    Hope this helps
    Tim

    Some squidoo lenses take off straight away and others will never see traffic. The key is keyword research and making an informative lens. Seasonal lenses will see a big rise in traffic ie: Valentine's day. I recently set up a new website and in under a month have got over 5000 visitors, a lot of that was due to the 3 posts on Valentines day and loads of the traffic cam from Pinterest.

    I think this is pretty good for you because Squidoo is good and traffic generating site. People like your content that is why you will got 100 visits in 5 days which is the big achievement in my opinion.

    Your results are okay, but you can always improve the traffic.

    My tips:
    1. Add more content. This is very important! Your lens will get a higher lensrank, and you'll get more organic traffic from Google.
    2. Visit some of the related lenses, like them and interact on them (e.g. place a comment).
    3. Continuously update your lens (2-3 minor or 1 major update per week is enough).

    Those are really good results from what I have seen. Most of my lenses get less than 10 visits a week. I have one that gets a few hundred a week but that is 1 out of 10. It depends on the topic and it's popularity. Like others said build links for it and write more lenses.

    You can not expect a sudden rise in traffic, unless of course you are in featured squidoo list. Providing high quality information is good on one side, but make sure you make your lenses look better and better as you move on. Good visual graphics ans videos are great for achieving it.
    That will make sure you get featured lense in coming days!

    Good to hear that but what is the process of posting on squidoo? I found it confusing. I posted some article with a link back to my page and I checked it after publishing it - my link was not there. Any brief guide would be appreciated.

    Its really fair traffic that you have for the lens that you have created and it is important to add more informative content going further to enable the traffic to rise on daily basis, the more quality and informative content you have more results you will get from the squidoo lens.

    Hi Challenger,

    Glad to hear you got good results from Squidoo. Most Squidoo lenses take a while to mature, and depending where you link to them, they will get a first flush of lots of traffic that will settle down later.

    Squidoo lenses will need updating. As a general rule I heard that you should update your top lenses once per week and your other lenses once per month.

    I don't do that much personally. I try and update once per month and I keep an eye on stats to see if my lenses need to be updated.

    When you look at the words the traffic is coming from you may find you need to include something else in your lens. For example, you could write a lens about crockery, and then find you are getting traffic asking about cutlery. This would make me add a module about cutlery, since that is something that the audience is obviously interested in.

    Keep things fresh on your lens keep write lenses. That is the best way to use Squidoo.

    HTH

      Yeah I almost agree with you. Currently I'm making 2-3 lens per week and keep them update. As well as socialize them... But right now I'm not socializing my lenses as much as i can....

      Even I'm getting traffic to my money site from squidoo but no sale... I understand it will take some real time to get sales from squidoo traffic...

      It could happen when any of my squidoo lens get top-10 ranking in search engines...

    Is Squidoo lens your final aim or is this a nursery for links to your money site?

    Is your len already ranking on page 1 for your targeted keyword? If not, try to build some quality links to it while adding more quality content at the same time as advised by the earlier posts.
