Squidoo is the Coolest thing Ever

I’m usually pretty hard on sites, claiming that they can’t make you rich and that you shouldn’t even bother with them. Well, I hate to say it, but I can’t find anything negative to say about today’s topic: Squidoo.

What is Squidoo? Squidoo is fantastic. It’s a site that let’s you share your knowledge on, well, anything. Here’s a couple of example pages that I made: The World of Warcraft Wipe Workout and How Gamefly Saved Me a Bundle on Wii Games. To create a page, you’re given a freakishly simple interface to work with, allowing you to fill in your content, add photos, etc. It even lets you add HTML code if you want to get a little more technical with your page. Click the publish button and you’re done. It’s that simple.

Also, see all of that stuff on the sidebars? All of the ads and junk? If anybody clicks on those, I get a share of the revenue. You can add more ads if you want, but you can’t remove all of them. Squidoo is free to use, but it costs money to keep a site like that running so a few ads are mandatory. I’m not complaining though, I get a piece of the pie.

As someone who is entirely new to affiliate marketing, I really love this site. I can create simple, nice-looking landing pages for any offers I choose to promote, and they’re even self-monetizing. Squidoo is ideal for beginner PPC campaigns, and it’s very search engine friendly. All in all, it’s a fantastic tool that I’d highly recommend using.

You still have to come up with something worth reading though. Can’t help you there.
