The 9 Free Things Every Site (or Lens!) Should Do

Everyone online wants to be noticed

Rule #1: If you have a site or Squidoo lens, you want more traffic.

Rule #2: You don't have enough money to buy as much traffic as you need.

Rule #3: You've already made your site/lens as compelling as you know how to.

So, what now? Read on for the (free) details. 

1. Think hard about what you write and do - The number one tactic of SEO and traffic generation is to be remarkable

Are you writing me-too stuff? Is your product or service just like the rest?

The secret is simple: don't work harder at yelling. Work harder at having something to say.

The secret shortcut of online promotion

...is that there is no secret shortcut. Step by step, bit by bit, link by link, you build something important and powerful.

Hurry, but don't rush.

2. Find sites that make it easy to share your taste - Digg is a site that lets the mob find the good stuff

Not only is contributing to the community a good idea, but it pays off in traffic back to your best stuff. (Watch out! If your stuff isn't good, it will get buried).

Bonus #2a: Start an argument

It turns out that arguments and debates and comments are a great way to get people coming back.

Do you need connections to succeed online?

Yes! It matters who you know.

Yes, connection matters a lot. No matter how talented you are, no matter how much efforts you have put in the article, you need connections to succeed. One more important thing that you need to succeed is money. Even in real life you cannot survive in this disillusioned world without money and connections.

Yes. I'd definitely say it matters who you know. But, once that door is opened, you have to respect your visitors and give them more than they expect.


hjohn1024 2 years ago

Yes I think everyone needs connections to succeed online. Connections will make you better known. The people who seem to know everyone will talk about you, and others will get to know you as well. it is difficult to find your way without online connections...

    No! Great content and hard work are the secret.

    oasisbinloc 2 years ago

    If you want to get something up and running quickly connections are quick and solid ways of doing that, but ultimately your content will have the final say. If you have great content but no connections people will find it and it will grow. If you have connections and poor content, people will make sure not to come back again.

    No, but you have to be very resourceful to make sure your content is factual. Having connections, however, can't hurt, but good old hard work does pay off.

    ashishr19 2 years ago

    Obviously unique content and attractive organizing style will help a particular lens gain more traffic. Just by knowing some people will not help in growing the page visitor or Lens visitor circle. Check out my lens about why one should visit Paris at http://www.squidoo.com/why-one-should-visit-paris

    Of course a great content is what you need to succeed. Without a good content how is it possible to get noticed by people other than a few of whom you know?


    PSPACC 2 years ago

    I'd say great content matter but its all down to links links and more links!


    Jodimo 2 years ago

    Imagine that you were a famous Twitter user, tweeting your heart out. You post your link to the Interweb and say "Hey everyone, look at this!" Sure, you'll get may get many views on the page, but no one will buy the product if it's worth no more than the tweet you sent. Working hard will get you what you want, having an interesting and exciting idea will get you what you want, and working hard will get you what you want. If you believe that your creation, your product, your page, anything is worth anything, it is, whether you get the benjamins or the self value.


    LadyGeisha 2 years ago

    You need to maintain a constant online presence across various social media platforms as well as aggregate compelling content in order to succeed. Not to mention the amount of time it takes to update all the sites -- you get out of it what you put in!


    idoo4traffic 2 years ago

    To give up easily in any endeavor is to accept cheap defeat! This lens business is not different. Provided it does not cost us too much in terms of money, time and other resources,we must continue to work hard, pray and hope. Someday, somehow, things are likely to turn out for the better. We should keep in mind the expression "If you try but do not succeed, try, try, try again". That was what Abraham Lincoln did and finally became the US president after failing the umpteenth time.


    anonymous 2 years ago

    I'm new on Squidoo. I think that we need connections but great content and hard work perhaps will have better results.

    QuanDuo 2 years ago

    Connections may give a short term, superficial advantage, but after a while this advantage will run its course, and without a truly original, self-sustaining content, others will not take the initiative to reach towards you.


    Madelight75 2 years ago

    Connections are integral to success, but even more integral is determination. Determination will cause you to be noticed and once you are noticed connections begin to follow after you.

      3. Build ANOTHER Squidoo lens - Every blog, every organization needs one

      A lens (you're reading one) is an organized directory that makes it easy for people to find your good stuff. It's free and you should have one... it will bring you credibility and traffic.

      Already have a lens? Make another, and link 'em together. Up your discoverability factor.

      4. Get your team, or customers, or friends to spread the word - It's not a top down world any more, folks

      It only takes a dozen or two people to post something to StumbleUpon, or Delicious, or other social news and bookmarking sites to get a lot of attention to your work. Stop worrying about getting listed in the New York Times and start talking to your friends instead.

      5. Issue a press release - But only if you have something to say

      Press releases aren't just for reporters. News readers (like Google News) read the press releases for the good stuff. So if you've got stuff, issue it as press release.

      6. Get a sister site for testing - When the IT folks complain too much

      Most big organizations have a 'frozen' site. No testing, no little experiments, no landing pages. You don't have to fight them. Just get some low-cost or free hosting and experiment with some pages that come BEFORE your firewall.

      7. Google Analytics - You won't know what's working unless you measure

      If you've got a lens, don't worry about this part. Squidoo handles it for you! Just check your stats page for daily info.

      8. Don't be boring - If it's so obvious, why are you ignoring it

      Every single one of the hundreds of millions of web surfers has billions of choices. And they're not choosing you. Why? Well it could be that they don't know about you. But it's way more likely that they don't care.

      9. Facebook, Flickr, MySpace, LinkedIn, YouTube

      It's kind of unfair to put all these together, because they each deserve their own writeup.

      What hot community are you already part of? Are you on Facebook, Twittering with your friends, getting Adds on MySpace, or swapping pics on Flickr? Link back to your favorite sites and lenses from those profiles. Link hither and yon and back again, and you'll generate your own little traffic economy. Nice.

      What's the unsung tip? - Tell readers of this lens which technique is the one they shouldn't skip

      Which technique is the easiest to ignore (but the most important to do!?)

      • Technorati
      • Digg
      • Squidoo
      • Spread the word
      • Press release
      • Testing site
      • Google Analytics
      • Don't be boring
      • Stumble Upon...it's addicting!

      Great lens--Just Dugg it! My #10 is links. Relevant participation on blogs and sites like Squidoo; regular, consistent publishing to sites like De.lic.ious and Digg (that also power targeted content feeds to keep multiple sites fresh) and linking from reviews on Yahoo! Amazon and eBay drive traffic.


      douglaskarr 9 years ago

      Jeff is on track. Optimizing your web for Analytics engines is important. Meta tags for keywords and descriptions, robots.txt file for Analytics crawlers, pings for Google, as well as a sitemap will help considerably. Posting isn't enough... you have to supply the map for how to get there!


      stephkiss 9 years ago

      Good tips. My addition would be to keep your site up to date - every day if you can. Nothing worse than a site that was last updated during the Clinton administration.


      mikecartmel 9 years ago

      Nice lens Seth. You might want to update the technorati link and lose the ping! http://technorati.com

      Add email subscriptions to your blog, lens or RSS feed (e.g. FeedBlitz), pushing your content to the 85% of readers who don't get RSS and whom you want to keep reaching (right? right!); plus it helps build a stronger online relationship with them. Remember those who are not on the bleeding edge.

      Room214 9 years ago

      Set up a syndicating press room, customized to the look and feel of your site. Unfortunately only about 10% of a website's content gets updated regularly, and those updates are typically press/news room items. So set your news room up on a blog platform and syndicate those updates through RSS.

      gp1628 9 years ago

      Open a CafePress shop. Even if its just the free one. Create items that match your theme, or offer others works, or ask your visitors to come up with designs. Every site should offer a merchandise shop when its this free and easy. Maybe avoid having to go to clickers and banners to pay for site.

      Well it's really an extension of that Don't Be Boring rule, but it's so important that it deserves to be out there by itself. Make sure your title is explanatory and so enticing that you just have to open the item. The title is as important as the content.

      I don't think you can register with Technorati - Lenses are not blogs. There are not permalinks to individual posts and so on. That is from their rules.

      "Technorati does not support claiming a static webpage."

      thanks to you i decided to get my blog registered with technorati.

      and now i have instant access to it's rankings at the moment they are not good, but previously i did not have a clue what they were. this means i can fiddle about with the blog and see how it affects the rankings. i'm no longer blind

      Create a lens about a "cause" and tap your friends in the forum world, blogosphere, and by email to help spread the word. Usually people like to support a good cause. But one good "cause" lens can boost traffic to ALL your lenses and create the "referral web".

      Seems like marketing tips for squidoo lenses are pretty similar to blog and website marketing tactics. Also seems like lenses typically have less content than a site or blog, so all the more reason to include relevant, valuable content. (if you're gonna spread the word to colleagues and customers.)

      IMHO #10 is Give Them A Reason To Come Back. Being boring is not quite enough. They may not come back if they think they've read it all. Examples: new info, changing pictures/videos, contests. If it's compelling enough, they'll come back AND tell others. (More ideas on www.squidoo.com/love4squidoo).

      #10 - Find as many Squidoo Groups as you can in your topic and join them! If there's not a Squidoo Group on your topic, create one. Then gather all the lenses on your topic and swap ratings and favorites and bookmarks and Del.icio.us and blurbs, etc.

      Make friends!

      I try to stay away from Google since they "stole" my money. Can't trust an organization that doesn't give a reason for banning my site (aside from the blanket statement they send to everyone) Tip #10 for me is articles(of course I link back to my lens in EVERY article)

      “Most big organizations have a 'frozen' site. No testing, no little experiments, no landing pages. You don't have to fight them. Just get some low-cost or free hosting and experiment with some pages that come BEFORE your firewall.”

      Can anyone clarify? Thanks.


      seth godin profile image

      seth godin 8 years ago Author

      What I meant was that instead of arguing to take over the 'main' site, you could build a page on a simple hosting service (like GoDaddy) and test it there. After you prove the new layout increases yield, you can move it over.
