I just had to say this. Trying to dispel a myth here.
It is NO use to submit your squidoo lens (or blog or website) in google. It is a waste of time.
I don’t know about yahoo and MSN, perhaps submitting your lens (or website or blog) there gets it traffic, but in google I’m pretty darn sure. Don’t bother submitting your squidoo lens. It is a waste of time.
You will have to promote your lens anyhow. Posting (a genuine post) on Squidu is as good as submitting your website to google. (Of course you should have your profile linked in your squidoo profile. And you should have some lenses in your squidu signature – but once you’ve got that done, you’re set. You may even want to put in your latest lenses in your squidu signature, to make absolutely sure google knows about them. Gives them and all your other lenses some backlinks)
Not that it will usually get you traffic, but google WILL know your lens exists.
Similarly: blogging about your new lenses here WILL make sure google knows about your lens.
In the same way sharing your link on related forums (that don’t have rel-no-follow on outbound links) will make sure google knows your lens exists.
AND all those ways will give your lens a backlink, which will help your lens GET FOUND in google. After all – what you want isn’t just that google knows your lens exists. You also want google to rank your lens. So people actually find it.
For that you need backlinks. And since making backlinks on frequently changing sites like squidtop or squidu means that google will find your lens anyhow – it’s better to kill two birds with one stone.
So why don’t you need to submit your lens to google (I haven’t submitted ONE lens to google or any other search engine EVER)? Because in your normal promotion activities google will find your lens anyhow.
