I read many blogs with some tremendous advice on blogging. As a blogger and internet marketer, I do not see much mention of the use of Squidoo as a traffic generator and income provider.
Granted, Squidoo marketing is not the quickest way to get good traffic but I believe it should not be ignored. Much like article marketing, Squidoo gets your site out there. When people are looking for specific information and they find your lens, your RSS feed and website will be there.
When I was looking my traffic the other day with Google Analytics I saw that a fair portion of my traffic came from referring sites like Squidoo. I asked myself the question, why am I not making more lenses then.
I had no good answer, building a Squidoo lens takes about 5 to 10 minutes maybe shorter if you know your topic. You publish and there you go another way to drive traffic to your site.
I would also like to touch on the making money with Squidoo side as well. While it is true you may not get rich with lenses (although I hear people do), I have made income off the lenses for a while now.
There are many great ways to get traffic as I mentioned earlier but I believe that Squidoo should not be left out of the methods of traffic generation.
