    Yup. Squidoo is very important to SEO and promotion. With Squidoo you can make many deep links which will help your site’s search engine visibility and increase rankings to those deep pages.

    Great, my SEO guy just set up a great lens. I'm happy to hear it's effective. Does anyone else have an opinion on Squidoo?

    I never used it for deep links. Are the links really that important? Personally I'd just edge towards creating satellite sites with a relevant domain name.

    I have set up suidoo lenses for two of my sites, google has crawled the sites and is not showing any backlinks from suidoo. Anyone got any ideas why. the lenses contain links to my site but have not been read by anyone yet.

    Google I believe is cracking down on Squidoo (as are squidoo themselves) as it is now renowned, and only talked about online in terms of spamming it full of crap content to use for linkbuilding.

    Squidoo is very beneficial for increasing link popularity and deep link management. As you create squidoo lenses, you can create pages on hubpages.com. very beneficial. 10+

    I however dont think Squidoo is any more powerful than any of the other web2.0 sites. Its all about creating something useful there that can get natural links and you will have good backlinks that will last.

    well due to spams and abuse, squidoo did go down for a while. But after updating their policy, they are back. Recently i signed up with market leverage and peperjam ads and guess what. One of them had a squidoo option for promoting the ads ;) . They ask you what ways you intend to use and squidoo was one of the option :D ehh! i was like what the..... but yea, use it well and it will come to your advantage!

    Yes, Squidoo is very good for building quality backlinks.

    Your article or such called lens goes indexed very quickly and no approval needed.

    Only make sure you keep atleast 3 blocks in your lens.

    Good luck!

    while squidoo is not as powerful as it was a year or two ago, it still worth the effort, links from squidoo are helpful both for SEO and traffic.

    Squidoo indeed is a great method to get links but overall HubPages is better.

    Bcoz of wide features of Squidoo, you can easily get PR for your Squidoo pages. U can use them for link exchange.

    By comment posting in other Squidoo pages, you can get good PR. But, now a days many of the people are not accepting sqidoo for link ex.
