What Happens After Lens-of-the-Day?

On December 7th, Squidoo featured my page What Were You Doing During Great Moments in Recent History as Lens of the Day. It received awesome traffic and comments on that day and some angel blessings. I had hopes that it might stay in tier one for the whole month of December and earn $40 or $50 from the tier payouts.

Alas, it was not to be. Many product lenses zoom to the top during the Christmas shopping frenzy and squeeze other lenses into the lower ranks. Traffic dropped quickly once my lens was no longer featured. It ended up at 31,000 for the month of December which puts it solidly in tier three. Maybe it will earn $5 for December and again in January if it can remain in tier three.

Well, that certainly is an improvement over the $1.86 it earned for the first 14 months of its existence. The chart below shows the date/rank/number of visits.

November 2011 100,621 38
December 2011 31,019 622
January 2012 61,666 50
