What are the results of the Squidoo Experiment?

It's been some time and I have not been adding much content here because I have been busy adding lenses to my Squidoo Empire! I am determined to succeed at my Squidoo Experiment. As of Dec. 13, 2012 I have 250 lenses. Adding more lenses to my passive income portfolio is great, but are they producing any results?

Are my new Squidoo lenses making any money?

The answer is YES! Some of the lenses make sales within the first 24 hours of being published. You're probably wondering how this happens, right? No, I'm not psychic. I am not a genius. I have an unfair advantage that you can have too. Read more about that below!

I'm sure you scrolled down to take a look at the table below with the earnings. I find it incredible that I will be receiving an amazon payment for close to $400! What you need to understand is that this was no accident. You can do this too. I found several lensmasters that were making money with Squidoo and sharing their results. I took their methods, tested them and combined them to create my own technique.

How do I choose my Squidoo lens topics?

I only make lenses about topics that I know will make me money. How do I know which keywords will be profitable? I use a keyword research tool that gives me the exact number of searches the keyword gets and the competition I can expect. When I started reading about success stories by various lensmasters, they all recommended this tool. They offer a free trial, but I just got it right away. I'm so glad that I did. I have doubled my Squidoo Amazon earnings in one month! I have used this tool with Squidoo, my blogs and hubpages. It works no matter what site you are using to make money! If you don't have it, get it!

What is my next make money online venture?

Two lensmasters I am following: lensmasters Skeffling and Klaird . They are both having excellent results with Zazzle. I joined last week and did some keyword research. I started a Squidoo lens today highlighting Zazzle products. With a 15% referral commission, it can really add up quickly! This is an awesome way for any wahm or dad to make money from home. You can either create your own products or sell other people's products. (I prefer affiliate marketing). Best of all, they offer volume bonuses, but I'm not sure how they work yet. I will look into it as soon as I start earning some commissions. Payments are processed through paypal on the 15th of the month. That means I would get both a Squidoo and Zazzle payment every month. Looking forward to that. Need to work really hard!

Can anyone really make money with Squidoo?

Yes! I helped a fellow hubber get started and she's already made some sales! I'm not going to reveal her identity. I'll let her do that if she chooses. All you need to make money on HubPages, Squidoo or Zazzle is that right keyword research tool. I've been using several free tools for years and received mediocre results. Why? You get what you pay for. Everyone is using those free tools. The keywords are too broad.

If you want to start making money online, take my advice. I am looking forward to a very profitable year. I hope to earn about a $1000. from my lenses in February. The sooner you get started, the closer you will be to your goal. Now, go take action! ;)

Don't forget to share this hub with other hubbers, friends and family by email, twitter, facebook, pinterest or your favorite social network site. Want to join me on my Squidoo Income Challenge? Let me know in the comments!

I also earned money from

Wow, these are some amazing results. I think I'm going to join you in your squidoo challenge...

@flagostomos Awesome! First, read the two hubs I wrote about the Squidoo Income Challenge. Then join Squidoo, make your first lens and post it here. That way I can check it out and give you some pointers. If you can swing getting the keyword tool, I highly recommend it. That tool is the reason why my earnings have skyrocketed. ;)

I will definitely do that! Thank you so much!

@flagostomos You are very welcome! Oh and be sure to read my hub about redgage. It is the only place I use to bookmark my lenses (only when I see they need an extra boost). Hope to check out your Squidoo lens soon! ;)

Thoroughly happy for you and see your earnings.

I am so tempted to get the keyword tool.

I am sharing this.

supermom_in_ny 3 years ago from NY Author

@wetnosedogs Thanks for the share.

They have a free trial, but not all of the keywords are visible. You have to have pay to get access to all of the keywords. Here's my advice. If you know you have the time to build the lenses and hubs, then just go for it. As you can see from my earnings, it pays for itself very quickly. If one gets the tool and takes action creating web 2.0 sites, one will get results.

You must have an referral link? I finally sat down this evening to start working on this and I realized I should ask if you did.

@flagostomos Thanks for being so thoughtful! Yes, there is a referral link for Squidoo. Here it is:

http://www.squidoo.com/lensmaster/referral/supermo... Use the lenses from this account as a guide:

http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/squidoo_income_... They have the appropriate layout. My other account has lenses with a lot of html, which is totally unnecessary. Keep me posted! ;)

Are you creating you lenses on your own or do you buy them? This month I got my first Squidoo payment, but I'm looking forward to write and earn more :)


supermom_in_ny profile image

supermom_in_ny 3 years ago from NY Author

@Klavdija Frahm I write them and buy them. I use the keyword research tool to make sure they are worth buying. The tool tells me how many searches they get a month, how many other sites are using the same keywords and if there are any other squidoo lenses already ranking for it. Some of my top earnings lenses were purchased from other lensmasters. Hope that helps! ;)

I'm gonna try some of your advices and fingers crossed, I'm hoping for some extra $$$ :) Thanks again for great hub :)

supermom_in_ny 3 years ago from NY Author

@Klavdija Frahm With the right tools, you don't have to rely on luck. Once you take action and build the lenses or hubs, you will see results. I've been making money online for years. At one point, i was earning more than I did at my full time job. (You can read my other hubs and see proof of payment from different sites). With the tool I mentioned, I was able to increase my earnings dramatically in a very short amount of time. Anyone can do it. ;)

I'm newbie and sceptical but I'm sure you're right, with right amount of effort there must be equivalent result.


supermom_in_ny profile image

supermom_in_ny 3 years ago from NY Author

@Klavdija Frahm It's about the tools. There are hubbers here that have hundreds of hubs and don't earn much. If you don't use the right keywords, you are wasting your time. I reached my payout here in a short period of time with traffic generated by a few hubs. Why? I chose the right keywords. Making it on the internet is all about keyword research. When you use the right keywords and write original content, you get results.

Alright, well I signed up for both jaxxy and squidoo, and I published my first lens. Tell me what you think! http://www.squidoo.com/what-is-the-best-beginner-g...


flagostomos profile image

flagostomos 3 years ago from Washington, United States

So I ordered the jaaxy keyword search tool and I'm just curious, how do you find good keywords? I've been entering in different topics I could possibly write about for an hour and I haven't found anything that is really striking to me.

@flagostomos This is a great lens! ;)

There are certain modules you should try to consistently use. Here are a few

lensmasters that I follow:

http://hubpages.com/@bigjoe2121

http://hubpages.com/@skefflingecho

Now that you have the hang of it, keep building. The more

lenses you have, the more doorways you have leading to

your affiliate links. ;)

Thank you so much! I actually feel very excited about an opportunity for once.


supermom_in_ny profile image

supermom_in_ny 3 years ago from NY Author

@flagostomos Awesome lens. Now don't stop making them. I have over 250 lenses. This month I earned $280.+ in sales on Squidoo alone. That doesn't include my Amazon earnings, ebay sales or tier payments! You have the right tools, now you just have to keep making roads to lead customers to your affiliate links. Translation: build more Squidoo lenses to make more sales. ;)

Amazing income report! What an inspiration but you must have done a lot of work to get 250 lenses live! Well done.


supermom_in_ny profile image

supermom_in_ny 3 years ago from NY Author

@Ben Jacklin Thank you! I created many of the lenses, but I also purchased some. I plan to outsource more in the next couple of months to reach my goal of 1000 lenses. :)

hey supermom! I got your comment on squidoo but i can't find a way to contact you that's not posting on your hub.


supermom_in_ny profile image

supermom_in_ny 3 years ago from NY Author

@flagostomos Send me a direct message on twitter: supermom_in_ny (I don't want to get spammed by trolls). I want to help you earn on squidoo asap. I already started adding content on two other web 2.0 sites to increase my passive income in 2013. Will help you earn if you're interested.

Sounds like I need to go and check this out! lol! I am so used to writing hubs that I forget there are other sites out there, thanks for the great info, nell


supermom_in_ny profile image

supermom_in_ny 3 years ago from NY Author

@Nell Rose You are very welcome! The sooner you begin, the better. Amazon and ebay payments take two months to receive, so Squidoo is on the same time frame for payments. My favorite part is that you earn large commissions for ebay sales. I've earned a commission of over $30. for one ebay sale! Yesterday was payday and I received close to $400. That doesn't include Amazon sales I made using my own affiliate link or other affiliate networks!
