Squidoo Lenses for backlinks...
A bit of "shameless self-promotion" here, but also some not-too-bad examples of rather popular Squidoo lenses - in support of my ebook and affiliate marketing sites.
Google likes Squidoo and Squidoo encourages links to your sites in your Squidoo Lenses. So Squidoo represents one of the best "Web 2.0" backlink opportunities. You can even target products in your Squidoo lenses and make commissions there.So, what's a Squidoo Lens?
Well, Squidoo got famous by offering people an easy way to make a long, web-page like page (called a "Lens", because it focuses on one topic) about their favorite topics.
Squidoo gives you many kinds of modules which you insert into your Lens (page) and fill with the type of content each module is designed for. Squidoo makes it simple for web newbies to produce good looking pages, which are automatically hosted at Squidoo. And for experienced webmasters, Squidoo makes it very fast to create content.
They also have a very large, active and friendly community for help and for boosting each other's Lenses. A Squidoo Lens producer is called a "Lensmaster". My Lenses:
Anyway, here is a link to my Squidoo Lens about Online Marketing. It has links to my other Lenses. Squidoo has been good for my backlink campaigns and I highly recommend using Squidoo (as I believe Mark Ling and others here also do).http://www.squidoo.com/workshop/marketing-myths-how-it-really-works
Hope this helps:
