How To Get Free Backlinks From Squidoo

The Easiest Way To Get Free Backlinks From Squidoo

In today’s “How To” post, you get to learn how easy it is to obtain free backlinks from Squidoo and in the process pick and choose which Squidoo lens to target.

Here’s How You Should Do It:

Just use this search string as follows:

Type in Google “Your Keyword” site:squidoo.com “0 points” (For example: “work from home” site: squidoo.com “0 points”). You will then be presented with all the Squidoo lens on topics of “work from home” to choose from.

What Lens Should You Choose:

As we are more interested in building backlinks, your focus is on a lens that has at least a PR2 in ranking in Google. Search for a lens that has a ‘Link List’ which essentially is a list of links that are relevant to the lens topic. You will be putting your selected link url on this Link List and then get the free backlink from Squidoo – quite easily I might add.

Once you have selected the lens, click on the tab called “Add to this list” and what follows is pretty much self-explanatory (add your website or blog url). When you have completed, you should see a text ‘Thanks! Your item was submitted successful and will appear shortly”. Your link will show up on the link list once the owner approves your request. Here is what you will see:

When Google Bots visit this squidoo lens again,it will re-index it and you will receive a free backink from Squidoo. How cool that is!

What Link Should You Provide on Squidoo Link List

When you select your website, one of the most important consideration is that your website must be relevant to the owner’s lens. Otherwise the owner will never approve adding your website or blog on his link list. From my experience, a higher PR website almost always gets approved.

Why It Is Easy To Get Free Backlinks From Squidoo

Well most owners of these Squidoo lens like to grow their “link list” as long as possible as that helps in their lens ranking. So you can be sure that they are happy to include your link as long as your site has good content and adds to their lens topic and discussion.

    Hi Peter Lee, I just did add a couple of links to a squidoo lens, and I noticed that these backlinks seem to be nofollow (I have SEO Quake installed in Firefox and it puts a strike through through the links that are nofollow). Isn't it that when a link is nofollow, Google won't consider it?

  2. I have tried add my link there. But, it was failed because system said that you have entered wrong amazon link bla3. Please describe more detail Peter. Many thanks.

    Hi Lukman,
    Before putting your link just take a look at the 'Link List' Some lens owners have link list solely for Amazon sites. Avoid these because you can't put your website here. Look for Link Lists that other webmasters are putting – those that are the normal blogs or websites that belonged to these webmasters. If you cannot find such link list – then search for the next lens in your Google results.

    Hi Petra,
    Yes you are right. But nowadays, most people do not bother too much about this distinction. I have come across no-follow links being indexed by Google too. Also these links will be good for Yahoo.

  5. Thanks Peter, I just tried it myself and it worked like a charm. I used HTML on the link to get my anchor text in there and it was accepted right away. I did have to sign up for Squidoo but that was easy.

  14. Tony Payne says:

    While you can get free backlinks on Squidoo lists, and some lists are not monitored and full of spam, be warned that other lists are monitored, so add irrelevant links at your own risk.

    A growing number of lensmasters on Squidoo are reporting sites for link spamming in cases where they are not relevant to the subject of the list (for example adding a link to “herbal supplements” to a list about “holidays in florida”).

  15. Sanjay says:

    Hey Peter thanks very much! I tried this method , but its only show my site name as i mention , most of sites gives backlink with nofollow tag , no useful much :O

    I was reading that Squidoo isn’t as helpful (as well as hubpages) as it once was. Is that because their PR is dropping? I didn’t understand why it’s not as helpful.
