8 ‘Squidoo’ Reviews
Run! Run Far Away!!!
Run, run far away! They have locked a bunch of my lenses, and now have locked my very best selling lens without giving me a reason. Just that it doesn't meet their TOS standards. I started on Squidoo back in 2006!
I sent them a request asking them to unlock it, they send me a automatic reply saying that most lenses won't be unlocked, and that my pending earnings will be sent to charity!!! I spend years working on this site, and thousands of hours!!!
My pay has gone down dramatically in the past year on the site although my lenses have been ranking higher. I have several tier 1 lenses which now only pay approximately $10 each per month when a year ago, they would have paid around $50 each. Waste of time!!!
Squidoo is a scam/fraud
They give you a lens page to slave over to build content and they put ads everywhere and take 50% of amazon and ad revenues, payouts are 3 months after a sales, and they have the power to lock your lens and steal the commissions entirerly and delete your content.
A girl I know spent 6 years building a lens, had over 50 likes, a 100 score and got her Squidoo lens deindexed and squidoo kept the money.
Squidoo is a con/scam/fraud.
They use your findgers to write content, then take the tiny bit of money you can ever make on the site,
Start a blog, at least it's yours.
Squidoo is a loser.
horrible, waste of time, unprofessional!
Nothing to do and want to waste some time? Create some lens on squidoo! I spent hours creating interesting lens with pictures, helpful decorating hints. I was getting good traffic and good response to my lens and then Squidoo "unpublished" them. Couldn't get any response from them why they had done so. No communication whatsoever! I read all their rules carefully many times, careful not to have many backlinks, not self promote etc. I was always puzzled though by lens that only purpose was to sell a product on Amazon and linked right to it. I didn't think Squidoo was a selling vehicle but maybe that was my mistake. Try Hubpages.
squidoo is crap
locked lenses - NO communication whatsoever - just stupid, stupid management - they have lost many great ppl, as well as my trust and efforts
They unpublish and take down lenses with no warning
I spent hours writing and researching 2 lenses that I wrote for squidoo which were published and eventually had good results in google searches for certain keywords
My lenses were both taken down with no warning or reason why from squidoo
Very unprofessional and I recommend to stay away
