What's The Point Of Squidoo?
I realise that my title may appear a bit strange but seriously, I'm baffled with it. I've made several lenses over the past few months but since I joined Affilorama I've really focused on linking them together and adding RSS feeds, anchor texts and loads of tags not to mention targeting longtail keyword phrases in the title and throughout the text.
So over the past two weeks I've made three lenses on Squidoo and got a grand total of 4 visits and I'm not entirely sure they weren't from me! I've pinged my lenses, submitted the URL's to Google and Yahoo, stumled and delicioused them, twittered them and blogged about them. I keep hearing people rave about Squidoo but no visits on three lenses makes me beg the question of what is the point of Squidoo?
I've so far had more luck with Hub Pages, although I'm not doing anything different than I do on Squidoo.
Another question is why are some of my lenses saying that they're getting old and 'need some love' when I have added RSS feeds from my blog? Surely when I update my blog then the feed will update and keep the lens fresh?
Am I missing something here? Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
