Squidoo Secrets #2a - Tags: make your lens easy to find

Jul 19th 2010 at 6:40 PM

Today's lesson is to help you make your lens easy to find.
Often overlooked in the lensmaking process are tags. 

When you create a lens, you are asked to choose a primary keyword
(or tag) plus three additional ones.  Too many people stop there.

Two reasons should compel you to add 20-30 more. 

First, tags are search engine magnets. 

Because of the way tags are coded into your webpage's HTML (all
without you having to do a thing), search engines like Google eat
them up.  Also, when users search on Google for your tags, they may
not come across your page immediately but the overall Tag Page
within Squidoo.  If you tag your lenses correctly, then your lenses
will be discovered this way.

Second, tags are the only variable that Squidoo uses during its
searches (unless this changes in the future). 

When a visitor comes to Squidoo and uses the search box, the
results are determined first by the tags of all the pages, and
second by page rank. 

So even though your lens may be all about Marilyn Monroe, for
example, unless you actually have Marilyn Monroe as a tag in your
lens, you will have a hard time getting natural traffic to your

Finally, as you add tags to your lens (simply click edit tags
in your lens workshop to get started), Squidoo will provide good
suggestions for more tags.  Simply click those new tags and they
will be added to your list.


Until next time
