I started making some lenses on squidoo, but they do not seem to be getting much traffic...and a lot of times i look at lenses on there and they seem like total crap but have high rankings...

I've made 15c but have to say that's on only three lenses and I think the total traffic has been something like 12 visitors. It seems that if you have a lot of lens (that seems to be what Squidoo recommends) or a really popular topic you could definitely make some money (and I notice a lot of the very popular ones are on the subject of how to make money in one way or another!)

Between $40-70 a month on 25 lenses.

I have made $20 and they my lens are junk sometimes too, LOL. I didnt put any time into making them at first but went back and polished them up. Rankings dont always line up with traffic. Maybe you have a topic noone else has. I dont get much traffic either but will work on that soon.

$20 is pretty good! I guess it might all be about patience.

There are so many facets to squidoo I really cant say how to make money. I made that from people buying videos off of amazon. I think its the right topic at the right time. I just started lensrolling other sites on my lens and that seems to work cause my hits are picking up just from squidoo members.

I know someone who makes good money with squidoo but she has a lot of lenses, many referrals and works hard to promotes it. I looked but decided it was not for me.

it does seem to take a lot of work...i tend to put a few too many chickens in too many pots so have not been able to devote too much time to it...though i am inspired now, maybe i will go and just make a couple tonight for fun :)

I have proudly earned 25 cents with my three lens (only one of them being close to what a quality lens should be). Unfortunately I'll have to wait until $15 to actually receive it. Oh well :)

I forget to change my profile and you know the the default is a donation to their choice of a charity, so in that respect, no. But I've been getting quite a few hits this period and am interested to see now than I'm active what the earnings will be, as now it is too soon to tell. However, my Squidoo blogs lenses do seem to be driving some traffic to my other blogs and I got one sign-up within hours of posting a referral link there. Sorry that I cannot say much about the earnings yet, but I love the way Squidoo works.

I like squidoo, too...I think I will probably work on some more lenses...right now I am trying to get my website off the ground...it could be a good way to market it once it's ready for viewers :)
