How I make money on Squidoo

Updated on November 29, 2012

Diary of my Squidoo Earnings

I joined Squidoo Nov 1, 2010, which means that my first payment won't occur until January 2011. I thought I would jump the gun and get a lens ready to keep track of my earnings on squidoo.

In my first month on squidoo, I earned $10 (at least) in affiliate income. Of my 66 lenses, I had 1 in tier 1, 5 in tier 2, and 50 in tier 3. I'm not off to a bad start, eh? Hopefully this trend will continue (and improve.) I hope that through cataloging how my earnings go on Squidoo, I can keep track of the things that work for me, and maybe give you some ideas, too!

Title Mosaic created with Andrea Mosaic. See my lens for more information.

I won't show a screenshot of my rankings each month, but since it will be Feb until I receive actual earnings from lensrank, I wanted to show off how I did with my rankings after the first month!

      I'm making progress, but I have a ways to go before I make any real money. Nice lens.

      I think you're next payment will be much bigger :) I am working towards my goal, but it will probably take at least a year to get there!

      I joined Squidoo a long time ago, and in the last week I've been getting back into things, my goal when I cam back was to discover what the points/trophies/levels are. I think I understand them now, but I still have to create lenses that earn income. Not sure how my niche will do (Spain, Andalucia, Ronda) but I'm hopeful it will earn some extra income.

      Wow, I joined about 1 1/2 weeks ago, there is so much information to take in.

      Aiming for Giant Squid, but I know I am still a little far from it.

      I joined around the same time and am anxiously awaiting the first payday! Good luck with your goals!

      Building one lense at a time, pacing myself as I go, and learning from people like yourself. Great Work!

      This is just the beginning, and the limit is only in your mind! I got my first earnings in December but it was less than my thresh hold, so my first 'in my hand' earnings will be in January also. I did make money through my own affiliate links in October, but it was again under thresh hold. I hope you achieve all your goals!
