First Tier One Payout for a one-year-old lens
Soooo. My Tier One Challenge lens reached Tier One on Nov. 11, dipped DOWN to lensrank 2119 on Nov 29, and is back up to 1624 today due to an Amazon sale. That fails the challenge to keep it in tier one a month, but I don’t mind, as its average for November is 1800, early its very first tier one payout! Not bad for a lens which averaged in the 100,000+ range for all but 2 months Nov ’09 to Sep ’10.
It’s still not a tippy-top lens, but I’m noticing a few trends that we can learn from, maybe.
So let’s take a tour of Dashboard Stats. First of all:
Vital Squidoo Statistics (12/2/10)
- #1,624 overall
- #49 in People – Note: I am sneaky! Its content also fit in How to & Education, but “People” had less competition, and Athena is a person…well, sort of. ALSO it’s a SquidQuiz. Optimization gave it a chance to get to the front page of the People category AND the SquidQuiz co-brand, both of which are “top of the hierarchy” pages which should have good pagerank.
- Highest rank achieved: #918 overall
- Days on the Top 100 list: 0
