What Makes The Most Money on Squidoo: 250th Lens
My 250th Lens: Which Subjects are the Most Profitable on Squidoo?
After a little over two years with Squidoo I have now created my 250th lens. Rather than just make another lens, I thought I would look back at what I have done and which lenses and subjects have been most successful. Which lenses have had the most traffic and which have made the most money. This is just my experience and obviously you may have very different ideas, so please tell me which of your lenses have been the best performers below.
After three months I had made just $0.08 and was ready to give it up (I didn't just do this for the money, but $0.08 for three months work!) but two years and 240 odd lenses later Squidoo is as fun as ever and I have made many new friends, but Squidoo also pays a nice extra income (of which I like to give some to wildlife and conservation charities e.g. WWF and keep some for myself)
My specialist subjects are physics (I read Physics at Oxford University) and Silicon Chip Design, while my hobbies (and in some cases second careers) are Wildlife Photography, Finance, cooking, making money on-line and Classic Cars and I have written about all of them, but which have been the most lucrative from a Squidoo perspective?
My Lens With The Most Awards
My Main Passion: Wildlife Photography
After getting off to a slow start I began my world travel and wildlife spotting adventures in my early twenties. Perhaps the highlight was my trip to Borneo and the Malaysian Rain Forests. I documented my trip in one of my first Squidoo lenses: The Rain Forests of Borneo and this has been one of my most popular lenses and certainly the most decorated: It has been "Lens of the Day" twice and also awarded a "Purple Star" so arguably this is my best lens. It isn't my most lucrative however.

Highest Paying Lens Category: Classic Cars
Classic Car Review Lenses
My main passion may be wildlife and the environment, but I also have a guilty alter ego who loves classic cars (I rarely drive however so hopefully I don't damage the planet too much) I have owned many classic cars including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Jaguars and have found lenses on the subject to be very popular and quite a good money spinner. All of my car lenses have been a fairly good source of income and some very good.
