Is there anyone else getting this message when creating a new lens with Squidoo?
Whoops! It looks like you were creating a lens about one of our SquidDon't topics (which means, for the most part, banned spam or illegal or pornographic content).
You've been taken back to the beginning to try again on a different, friendlier topic. Sorry for the hassle.
P.S. If you've read our SquidDon't policy and think you're seeing this page in error, you're welcome to let us know.
There are topics which are banned in Squidoo. That means everytime you try to publish an article which is listed in SquidDon't, it will first scan and if there are keywords that can trigger spam, it won't allow you to publish your lens.
yes, I've had that. I contacted them and they approved my article very quickly.
Acai Berries? That's a Squid Don't.
Suggested servings/recipes/vitamin content of bananas/apples/oranges/kiwi etc? Submit a bug report and it will get straightened out.
Anything health related like weight loss or medical pills is not allowed
I moved some of my lenses to HP after topics such as why having a website is important for business, basic SEO and getting a free business website were deemed "spammy"
The free business website was linking to Google sites and squidoo itself. Really spammy!
I have created it once but later on I came to know that they are not crawled by search engines so I am happy with Hubpages here.

How are you doing on Squidoo? Is it worth it? Is it better than HubPages?

Even with redirects for Squidoo why have the views gone down?Every lens shows a huge drop off right at the month of Sept-Oct. I imagine all of us have to rebuild each article rep all over again as a new article. Is that because of the new url? or what? What happened?

The recent discussion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GlxLlpm3Ew and previous feedback from Google has confirmed that G will only present the first and highest ranking search result from a domain in a search result (SERP). Despite the subs, this effectively means that only one result from HP will...
