Run! Run Far Away!!!

Reviewed By Courtney on January 27, 2014

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

Reviewed By Jessie on January 16, 2014

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.

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 I was getting good traffic and good response to my lens and then Squidoo "unpublished" them.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.

horrible..!! exactly like the reviewers said earlier. Lot of work ( and a 100 scorecard) only to find your lens locked 3 days later. They won't communicate with you, won't even tell you why they locked your lens..nothing at all !!

People, who are talented, have great ideas, please spend a few extra bucks on your own website and rule!!! For me, personally and I am sure, for many Squidoo can go to hell !!!

Spent many hours writing good lens, with humor, interesting content etc. Was getting a good response and they locked and DELETED my lens. I questioned why and got no response, they only deleted more of them. I see a lot of lens are mainly ads selling things linked to stores on Amazon, hardly interesting content but I wonder if Squidoo is only interested in revenue generating lens? Any way, total waste of your time if you use them. Highly NOT recommend. Use Hubpages.

They unpublish and take down lenses with no warning

Reviewed By Dustin Rees on July 12, 2013, Salt Lake City, UT

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
