I have been on Squidoo for a few years now and have made money from the 3rd month I started to now! No matter what is going on in my life I can always Squidoo and count on it to bring me an extra paycheck! Granted I didn't start out making a ton of money, but I have always made money on here and have never had to pay for anything and nobody tells me what I need to write about. Squidoo gives you suggestions and extra points for the things you do. The more points you earn the higher the level you become on here. It allows you to unlock different modules to work with on your lens's (lens's are web pages that you build). It also helps the longer you are on Squidoo and the more involved you are in the Squidoo Community the better off you truly are. So give it a try and join today! It's free to join and free to be a member! Also the great thing about it is you get paid for what you do and have fun on here doing it too! People are very supportive on Squidoo also and you will find all the help you can possibly ever need just take a look and see how well you do!

When is PAYDAY?!?


You can expect to be paid by the 15th of every month. We Squidooers do get lucky sometimes and can see the $ anywhere from the 12th to the 15th! Squidoo would love to pay us asap, but this can't always happen because of the outside influences of strain upon them and depends on when they receive it.

Start today making money and saving it for a rainy day! - Join up with Squidoo and become part of the community!

Put your money away the easy way with a piggy bank that counts it for you!

Your here to make money!

A lower ;ens rank means more money. More traffic to your lens means more money! More likes, clicks, pins, facebook, tweets, google searches, Amazon sales, Ebay sales, Zazzle sales, ect...all mean more money so make sure to incorporate them into your lens but make sure to add plenty of content. The last thing you want is a lens that is spam..nobody likes a spammer except themselves! lol Happy Squidooing!

Hard to stay motivated and making money Tips and advise!

I wrote this in response to a baby squid having some troubles!

I overwhelmed myself thinking in numbers and not quantity. I felt like I had already wrote too many lenses to make them better and I would just make them really quality lenses from here on out but, what I discovered is...I would work on 2 of my old lenses at least every day and make them better by researching and seeing what worked for others and try to incorporate the different styles into my own. So, as I work on the lenses I already have everyday then I improve a few of them and write new ones every 2nd to third day. This is also so you do not get burned out on just trying to write a bunch of lenses that later on you will not be truly proud of! Plus, visiting helps you see whats out there....but pay attention to the lenses rank when you are on it also. See if what they have added to theirs has made a difference or if you see a module that you don't use then start trying to incorporate it into your own! AND I went onto and listened to Megan Casey and the team tell how to do different things on Squidoo to make your lenses better and gain rank and pay. Payday can be an awesome feeling and don't give up the ghost just yet! You are so right about trying to stay motivated on Squidoo when you don't see the money pouring in but, keep going and don't give up it just takes time! I have been on Squidoo over 5 years and had it going real good the first 2 years until they banished me from Squidoo and took all my lenses away from me. So just imagine my frustration in trying to pick up from scratch when I had over 125 lenses and over a 100 a month going at least to 0.00 and 0 lenses. Plus had to beg to be allowed back on Squidoo and convince them it was not fault due to my own! Keep up he great work and you are heading in the right direction

two lenses! Awesomeness!!
two lenses! Awesomeness!!

2nd lens trophy

and now your first lens is not lonely it has a friend to keep it company!

You are moving right along once you get this trophy! You are creating away and making a name for yourself on squidoo and on the web! Just remember once you get your lens published on Squidoo to go over to google and submit your content to the web! Make sure you have an account set up (which is also free) and you are ready to go and submit your work to the open net. You can't forget to show your Facebook friends what you have done by submiting it to your Facebook site, also Tweet about it, get the page you created pinned by someone, and so many more ways of gaining traffic to your site! Traffic is a main key player in gaining rank on Squidoo. The lower the ranking number the higher the payout for you it will be! So get to Squidooing! Anything under 100,000 in rank for over 30 days will gain some cash for your pocket. There are many tiers or levels of rank with different payouts.
