Just after the new year was rung in my highest ranked lens dropped from 400ish in ranking to 116,611 in one day! I have alerted Squidoo of this bug but so far nothing has been done to help. My lens actually got as high in the rankings as 45!!!
Problem--Apparently I was updating my lens when the site was updating and as a result for some reason bumped my lens way way down. I am just crushed because I have worked extremely hard on keeping it updated and spreading the word about it. You can read more about it and what other lensmasters are saying at Squid U: http://www.squidu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=27299 and http://www.squidu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=174650#p174650
You can help by tweeting the following:
Limited time baby & kids freebies at:
The more visitors and ratings I get it will help. I have given up on Squidoo resolving the situation--I just want my lens back where it was in the rankings. You can also add my lens link to your blog, website or Squidoo lens.
Thanks for helping!!!

Thanks to JaguarJulie I found a great site for Twitter users. It is called Twitter Grader. The Twitter Grade measures the reach and authority of a Twitter user.
Other cool stuff too. You can get a badge for your lens bio, your blog or your website. You can also search for Twitter users by location, name, keyword, or email address. The site has a new TwitSnip bookmarklet -- the coolest way to tweet content from any website.

"Psst . . . have you heard?"
If you have not heard the buzz about this new way to spread tweets like a virus and get more lens traffic you have got to check out
and start a discussion today!
Take note that when you make a lens with this plug in royalty setting does default to charity and not to cash so if you want to change it to cash you have to change the setting when you create or update the lens.
Have fun and many tweets & traffic to you!

I created a lens to help me to organize my online life.
I would love for you to check it out.
Be sure to vote on what you would call this type of lens a profileography or a webography. See what name is winning so far...
There is a group on Cafemom for Squidoo moms. Once at the site go to the groups and search "Addicted to Squidoo" to find it and join! You can click on the banner below to get there.
If you are a lensmaster you must visit SquidUtils. SquidUtils.com - is a website developed by the lensmaster & Giant Squid: thefluffanutta.
SquidUtils.com is not owned by or affiliated with Squidoo.com or SquidU.com, and is provided only for Lensmasters to use with their own Lenses.
I LOVE the advanced dashboard that is available. It is so much easier to make changes to my lenses here. The coolest thing I found there is being able to ping my lens.
This is the site were I also got my fans counter graphic/button which I added to this blog, my bio, and other profiles on the web. It is a great way to get visitors and to spread the word about Squidoo.
I think this site is one of the single most useful sites for lenmasters to use in developing & maintaining their lenses.
I can not even remember how I found Squidoo but I am glad I did. All aspects of my online affiliate marketing attempts and my website have improved with the networking I have done since I have became a lensmaster.
I currently have 36 lenses created and I have even had one lens, Baby & Kids Freebies, make it to #48 out of all the lenses on Squidoo! It remained there for 43 days.
My next goal is to become a giant squid! I think I will be able to accomplish this goal by March 31st 2009. Wish me luck. You can help me out with that by visiting my lenses.
