    Pending $$$ in the dashboard is solely for affiliate sales.

    Revenue from Adsense isn't shown at all.

    It's calculated by Squids with waterproof calculators and a special formula in the holding tanks in the basement of Squidoo HQ.

    Ignore that last sentence. :D Check out www.squidoo.com/payrank

    My latest lens is about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows the newest and last book). I'm especially proud of this one because it shows UK versions and prices to UK visitors, and US versions for everyone else.

    See all my lenses in my Lensography...

    Hi,

    I've built a couple of squidoo lenses and I've got to say I'm very impressed. Both lenses are ranked in google for my optimized keyphrases, and both receive a trickle of traffic daily.

    If you build a focussed lens for a phrase that has less than about 200,000 competing pages you should be able to confidently rank in the top ten in google.

    I've not had much success in the other engines how are the rest of you fairing?

    Here's my lens if anyone wants to take a look:

    http://www.squidoo.com/wall-mounted-fountains

    Would be great to get you comments on what I could do to improve the lens.

    It is sporadic, but I do have some good squidoo rankings in msn as well for some key tags.

    Janet,

    Do you do anything specific to your lens in order to appear in MSN?

    ...to do with Squidoo.

    Well not quite all. Others have written some excellent tutorials, tips and advice.

    While I have no formal teaching qualifications I do know how to chew up and spit out concepts or ideas so it's easier to understand for the average person.

    I must be doing something right, Squidoo Inc linked to my www.squidoo.com/basichtml lens so that every single lensmaster who is in edit mode has a link to it. Check out "Basic HTML Approved" in the top right hand corner next time you're working on a lens :D

    I have tried to use Squid as an avenue to get traffic to my work from home business site at www.homejobsite.com

    My squid site is http://www.squidoo.com/freehomejobs/ and while this worked pretty good in the first few weeks, (I ranked down to the low 100's)
    I am now ranking in the 3hundreds, I seem to get less traffic everyday...

    I guess the trick is to keep supplying good original content, but it would be much easier if one could create tier 2 pages or at least a mini Web with this project. One could even use it as a home business Site!

    However, it has been picked up by Google for Free to join work at home job opportunities. Second page...

    As for Sales???

    I as well haven't seen a dime, and it would be a little more worthwhile if they shared the adsense. I would even give some to charity!;)

    It did shoot up at first, but it's settled down now. It does provide a consistent trickle of traffic. Maybe about 30 to 40 visitors a day.

    Answer to question about when Squidoo pays out - you have to earn at least $10 to get paid.

    On another note...

    Okay, here is my latest lens:

    http://www.squidoo.com/privatelabelrightsreview

    If you have a moment, please review it.

    Thanks!

    Add a bio.

    Be sure to an image to that bio.

    You've got an empty module (New Text List). Either fill it or delete it.

    But it's a good idea to have at least four modules in a lens otherwise it gets classed as unimproved
