Ways To Make Money Online With Squidoo

Aug 17, 2007
I've had the pleasure recently of getting involved with Squidoo, which is a Web 2.0 site that allows you to create small web pages packed with brief information about your sites, products, and services. If you are looking for ways to make money online, you might want to start with Squidoo.

The reason I suggest starting there is that if you visit Squidoo's website, you can do a free search for various topics - anything under the sun - and find short web pages with brief overviews of what you are looking for, and do this all for free.

It is like a mini search engine really where you can find information on the latest and greatest celebrity news, or new ways to make money online. You can even find information about future events, launches, and promotions. If you can't find what you're looking for, you can always start your own lens on the topic that interests you.

What is a lens you ask? When you look through a microscope, you get a magnified image of a mass of cells for example. When you look at a lens on Squidoo, you are looking at a magnified image of someone's topic, all concentrated together in a single web page.

It's free and incredibly easy to set up a lens on Squidoo. You don't have to know any HTML - they do it all for you, and your lens can be set up within minutes, after which you will quickly discover how easy it is to get traffic via Squidoo.

If you are searching for ways to make money online, you can do it with Squidoo. Not only can you search for information you want, but you can create a lens and promote your own products and services - either your own products or someone else's through affiliate links. If you already have a website, you can link your lens to your website for additional traffic.

There are a few ways to make money online with Squidoo. Not only can you promote your own or other people's products, but you basically get your own site setup by Squidoo that already comes with Google Adsense ads on it. You don't need to do anything other than take a few minutes to create a lens, and you could be earning extra money through Adsense!

Another way to make money online with Squidoo is to use the "modules" they provide you when you set up your lens. At a first glance you may not understand how the system works. You are free to delete modules they provide, such as their eBay module, and their Amazon.com module. Why would you want those?

I wondered the same thing, until I found out that you can carefully choose keywords for your Squidoo lens, type them into the eBay module they provide, and see what products come up for auction at eBay. Once you've done that, Squidoo kindly updates your eBay auction list every 6 hours, and you have the opportunity to make money online if anyone clicks those eBay links that are linked to your lens!

It's not a greedy system either. You have the option of donating all, or portions of what you make by people clicking the ready-made links on your Squidoo lens to charity! There is a growing list of charities to which the money can be donated too, so this is a fabulous system for giving something back.

Heck, you can even decide not to donate to charity and pocket the cash yourself through your PayPal account for additional extra income in your pocket!

With Squidoo, it's easy to rise in the search engine ranks, particularly Google. If you create a lens and share it with others, and get your friends or other Squidoo group members to add your lens to their favourites list, and rank your lens, you will achieve a high lens rank quickly. The higher the rank, the more potential there is to make money online because others will find your lens quicker.

As you can see, Squidoo offers ways to make money online by providing an almost ready-made portal to promote your products and services, to promote other people's products and services, to share information, rise in the ranks, and make money from Adsense and online auctions. You can't beat this method, especially because it's free!
