I stumbled onto a really cool site today. It is called http://whois.domaintools.com/ You can find some great information about someone's site. I tried it with my own site and then with Squidoo's site too. It is worth searching for your site and others you might want to advertise or join.
I knew something was up today because my ranking went way up and I had lots of visitors. So I went to the traffic and figured it out. I am so excited. Please check it out and other great lenses that have been recently selected.
The Shorty Awardshonor the best people & organizations on Twitter across 27 official categories & thousands of community-created ones. Online voting open to all members of Twitter culminates in an awards ceremony to recognize the winners.
Very cool idea! Know a lensmaster that you follow on Twitter.
As of Novemember 18, 2009 3:30 EST. I have a few of my lenses that are doing very well in the rankings over the past week- even without me promoting them since my wireless connection has not been working.... Please take a look at them or any of my other Squidoo lenses on my lensography.
This is the bug report I initially sent in to Twitter on June 28, 2009 3:47pm
Recently I noticed that my tweets are NOT showing up when someone is searching a topic. For example when I search my profile name "Teddi14" I should see all the tweets and replies but I only see replies NOT my original tweets. When I use Tweetdeck I search a number of topics and none of my tweets are showing up--even when I use the hash tags. I am a Squidoo lensmaster and when I search "Squidoo" none of my updates are showing up. I updated about 10 of my lenses today and when I searched "squidoo" none of my tweets/updates showed up.
Please let me know why this is happening. Did I do something to cause this?
I went to known problems and found something similar but not exactly the same at: http://help.twitter.com/forums/31935/entries/29912 (my problems is no to each search-- well part of one...) This link instructs me to search for my user name & search for updates--so that is what I did.
How does this affect you? I know I have had almost zero new followers per day as a result since I noticed this was happening (a few weeks now). I imagine it is because NO ONE CAN SEE MY TWEETS EXCEPT CURRENT FOLLOWERS! For example, any updates I do for my lenses are not able to be seen on a trending topic or found during a search on a topic. I was able to scroll back and found that my updates where not there as far back as 12 days ago. I found many many people are having the same problem when I visited the link above.
~~ U R G E N T ~ COULD BE HAPPENING TO YOU TOO ~~
Q: Here is how to find out if it is happening to you too.
1.Search your user name at http://search.twitter.com See if updates from you show up. Your user name should show up the first word on most of the tweets--my user name is ONLY showing up when someone replies to my tweet! If your user name is NOT showing up as the first word on each tweet then ONLY your followers can see this tweet...make sense? 2.Search your user name here http://twitter.com/search/users See if you show up in people search.
I am so excited about the new themes available on Squidoo. If you have not checked them out you are missing out. Go to the lens workshop and click on "themes". Be sure after you publish it to view the lens to make sure you want to keep the other things like the "black" box the same color.
Here is one squidoo lens about Extreme Weather that I added the highlight theme to. I think it looks good. I also added the purple theme to my lens about Prince. How fitting huh... What do you think?
