Was updating my lens today when I noticed there were over 5 links to mylot discussion topics. The new squidoo rules start sometime in July and you cannot have more than 9 links to same website. Guess how many I had??? OMG there were 12 links to Mylot on my lens, yikes! Made some quick changes. How about you? Are you in jeopardy of losing your squidoo lens? I sure hope not.

Well, I just started lenses-ing (my own phrease -sorry). And i didnt know about this new guidelines of only to have 5 links to one website. Is it only for text module? Did our blog also count if we put it in our lens? Sorry to have this question irrelevant, but I would really appreciate if you can tell me. And I also had this one question, i notice when link in text module, there were now html code for it, did it became hyperlink automatically just like here in my lot?

Hey I like your new phrase. BTW its nine links to one website and it does not matter what kind of module, its the "lens". Are you talking about the blue links throughout your lens? Squidoo put those in their, also part of the new guidelines. Although its another way of earning, it kinda takes away from your content and also leads them to a site mylot wants them to visit. Hope this helps you. So how do you like squidoo so far? Its a slow earner but once the traffic comes, watch out.

I havent much on lenses. I didnt have enough time I guess. Honestly there are so many things i have and want to do online. I'm having trouble to focus on prioritize. But i do find squidoo as one of website that I must constantly visit. I plan to make few lenses in the future. Hey, can i see yours?

I had that same problem of priorities once. I chose the ones which were easy to maintain and earned the most. More money for my time! I dont mind putting the in work if it pays off. If you want to see one of my lens, just check the link on my profile page (secret of mylot). Good luck!

Is this one of the lenses that you had blocked on squidoo? I hope you were able to save this one from being blocked...I think I lost one of my lenses but I haven't checked - still...everytime I go onto squidoo, I am way too busy adding more to my other lenses to look lol

No they didnt block this lense! The one they blocked was my very first lense about earning online and I have been working on that one for years. If they block this one, I am gone.

I am glad that lens didn't get blocked & I thought the one you had blocked was the one that was blocked...I checked last night about my first lens about mnaking money & that hasn't been blocked thank goodness but it just has a list of banners...I have to sit down & write about every banner/site & also make sure it doesn't get blocked.

Remember it is 9 to the same website. You can always ask them to whitelist mylot, but in the end, they decide. http://www.squidoo.com/outboundlinklimit You pretty much are going to hate me though. For the most part, I am not effected by this rule except I did delete two lenses and put them on my blog as I really didn't want to run the chance of them being on the don't list which changed a bit. It was about affiliates and secret shopping. The reason you will hate me though is because I am a giant squid and I can have more than 9 outbound links.

No hate here!!! I am very proud to know a giant squid. You earned those great perks so use them. I will be giant squid one day, hopefully.

I only have one lens that is using that perk, but as a rule I don't go beyond 9. This past January, I had become a giant squid and I am currently trying to go for giant 100.
