The Power of Squidoo for Marketing your Blog - The 30 Day Challenge Day 3/Module 3

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Marketing with Kate
Today's 30 Day Challenge lesson is all about Squidoo. Most of us on Active Rain have heard of Squiddo but my guess is that the majority don't really understand it's value or why we should use it as part of our online marketing strategy.

Why use Squidoo?
  • It's a tool that provides backlinks to your primary website.
  • Squiddo is considered an authority site - meaning that a backlink from Squidoo carries greater weight with Google than links from other sites.


In this video you will learn how to set up a lens, and how to create a search engine friendly. Good Stuff, enjoy!

Actions For The Day - 1. Sign up for Squidoo using the traditional method and create a lens using your main keyword phrase. 2. Edit your Squidoo lens to include the Guestbook and RSS modules. 3. Edit your text module to include a unique piece of content you have written (including anchor text URLs). 4. Publish and view your finished Squidoo lens, then check all of the links to make sure they are correctly pointing to your site.

Wow Kate! This sounds like a 30-week challenge - that's a whole lotta homework! Is it something you can do at your own speed? Liz
