I joined Squidoo in January because Skip McGrath talked about it on his website.
They had some technical issues back then but their service is a lot smoother now. I would really hate to be a developer on a site that marketing machine Seth Godin was promoting. I’d be in fetal position on opening day because there would be over 1 million hits per hour. Well, maybe I would just make a really cute HTTP 500 internal server error icon. Yeah, that would be cool …
I got paid $10 this year and have another $2.74 in the reserve hopper. My trick in earning that much money in approximately 1 year is to keep adding eBay items that are 3-4 days old. I noticed that it takes about 1 to 2 days to get googled and then you get 2 days of hits and high lens rank. Then the hits and the lens rank dribble down.
The best thing about Squidoo is that they gave out really nice t-shirts at eBay Live! Thanks Seth for being a purple cow, orange t-shirt with lots of writing, one-eyed squid kind of guy!
