Squidoo Tip #6 - Update Squidoo lens tags to make more money on Squidoo

Have you updated your Squidoo lens tags lately? Tags are an important Squidoo tool that helps Squidoo identify similar lenses and suggest them to Squidoo readers. Google traffic is very important, but you can't ignore the opportunity to attract a few extra readers from direct Squidoo traffic. Let's take my First Dance Wedding Songs lens. There are quite a few Wedding lenses on Squidoo, like for example this Best Mother-Son Dance Songs lens by rms that today reached the overall Squidoo ranking #1. There are thousands of brides and grooms who turn to Google for help with their wedding planning. They land on a Squidoo page that may or may not answer the question they have. Then they see Squidoo Lens suggestions in the sidebar and click on another lens they may be interested in. Or they click on a tag in the Tag Cloud and find a list of Lenses that cover the topic. How do you get Squidoo to suggest your lens to the reader? By selecting the right tags. This Squidoo Tags SEO lens by Squidoohelp is a great reference guide for using Squidoo tags to optimize your lens' findability within Squidoo. What can you do today to get more Squidoo lens views? I suggest you find a couple well-ranked Squidoo lenses in your niche and get some tag ideas for your lens. Find the best tags for your lens and make sure that your primary lens reflects your main topic. The more similar your lens tags are to another lens' tags, the better are the chances of your lens showing up in the sidebar. If you have several Squidoo lenses on the topic, I suggest you make your lens tags similar and add your lensmaster name to all lenses as a tag - to get Squidoo to suggest your own lenses.

Do you have Squidoo Tags SEO tips you would like to share? I would love to hear from you! June 2011 Squidoo payday is coming soon - hope you make some money!


  1. Hi,
    The tags SEO that seems to work best for me is to go to the stats page for each lens, check to see what keyword phrases people are using to find my lens, and then add those to the tags if I don't already have them in the tags list. It also lets me update the lens without adding a lot of content. Also, somewhere I read that the first featured tag should be repeated in the list. It seems to have helped.

  2. Thank you for sharing your tip!

  3. oh man .... I was doing THAT wrong! Nothing to do but laugh I suppose, I have spent the past few weeks adding tags to my 82 or so lenses that I had not tagged well because I did not know what they were. I read that those tags were used for google (like keywords) so I went NUTS with all the tags on all my other lenses, finishing just last night! I will go back and do them the way you explained which makes SO much more sense! -I will however wait for two days I think just because I'm a bit tired of them right now!

    Thank you so much for clearing that up!
