I haven’t quite figured out what affects the lens ranking on Squidoo. I do know that your lens needs to be in the top 10,000 to earn well in the monthly distribution on the site.
So far, I’ve gathered that lensranking seems to be tied in to Google’s ranking, the number of visits, number of comments, stars, times it was favorited, and recent editing. Getting blessed by a Squidoo angel also boosts the ranking for awhile.
Here are the ones that are doing the best for me:
Rebirth of a 1918 House – This is about the house fire that my sister had and the four months of rehab on her 1918 house.
I’ve always loved old barns, so I created Save an Old Barn. It has info about rehabbing a barn and finding grants to restore a barn.
I have a good time watching the alligators in the lake behind our house, so I created Alligators: Fun Facts. I’ve geared this one more towards kids, though I think everyone finds alligators somewhat fascinating.
