Writing for Squidoo

Squidoo is yet another place to write online and earn residual income. But, residual income is not the only reason to write at Squidoo. Links placed in your Squidoo "lenses" create do follow backlinks for your other writing. Squidoo is a wonderful place to leverage your articles by adding links in your lenses promoting your writing at other sites. Google recognizes these do follow links as quality backlinks. When the page rank of your Squidoo lens goes up, so will the page rank of the articles linked from it.

In addition to using Squidoo lenses to promoting your writing on other websites, you can earn residual income off your lenses as well. Lenses are usually slow to start earning residuals. Sometimes it takes up to a year. You can see your lens views and earnings by going to the dashboard and then stats for that lens. Recently, Squidoo added a feature that allows you to see your pending earnings on each lens also. Prior to this you could not see how much a lens had earned for the month until you got paid. Payments usually occur between the 10th and 20th of the month. To see the "pending" earnings on your Squidoo lens, go into lens edit mode. Click the "stats" button at the top of the screen. You will see pending earnings for the month and total earnings over the life of the lens.
