Two days ago I completed my first Squidoo Lens that I published at :
I hope you want to visit it and vote…
But I want also to let you know why Squidoo can be so useful as a source of visitors.

What is Squidoo ?
Squidoo is essentially a free and trusted source of quality traffic, because you will never pay for your advertising.
For example Google list the Squidoo lenses fastly because in one month, only in USA, were made more than 49% of the total amount of 7 Billion searches : so the king of the search engines really like Squidoo, because it drives a lot of users to find lenses.
And so, if you decide to talk about one of most searched topics (applying the correct keywords) you can also have one of the most searched lens.

And now the three first unforgivable rules to get more possibilities to build officially one of the “Most Clicked Lens” :

1) Choose the best name for your new Lens
Choosing a correct lens name can be very difficult because you have to keep in mind the following rules.
The Keyword about the niche are you writing about has to be included in your Lens title.
And then you can post other connected keywords separating them with “-” simbol.
Keep in mind that your title need to be more easy to remember as possible, so don’t think about too long and difficult words.

2) Think about 10 good Keywords
On your Lens setup you are invited to choose some Tags for your lens.
This Tags are simply keywords that need to be strictly related to your lens topic : so you have to avoid too general terms and find specific words that can easily searched by people interested on your same niche.
Don’t add too many Tags or you can be kicked out by Squidoo in case you have more than 20 of them.

3) Complete your Profile
The most important thing when you have put up the basics of your Lens is to complete your profile’s informations.
Infact this one needs to be adjusted to let you appear as a king of your niche or as an expert of the topic are you talking about.
Adding a photo is mandatory to let people keep your image in their mind for future references on other platforms.

In the next post you will learn how to continue this new adventure in Squidoo adding new great contents, like Flickr photos, Youtube videos, eBay and Amazon products, Rss feedds from your blogs and a lot of others items that can power your Lens to maximum levels.
