This is one of those days when an opportunity falls right in your lap, and you wonder whether you should really write about it and keep the information to yourself.
Then again I am one of those caring people who really does like to provide some useful information.
First of all Seth Godin launched a new aspect to Squidoo today, SquidWho – meant to be like a who’s Who section of Squidoo, but effectively you are building a Squidoo page with a slightly different template and is like building a fan page, with the income meant to go to charity, but I think you might be able to change that.
Initial creation is almost fully automated. I am not sure whether the “fan page” creator was available before and they just rebranded, but it is useful.
So we are just looking at a Squidoo lens about someone, there must be more to this..
Wikirage is a new site monitoring the content on Wikipedia that is being changed fastest – fresh content
So you could go to Wikirage and grab names or topics that are being changed frequently and using Squidoo import the information.
Then you need to add in a few feeds and maybe find a couple of images
Google Trends has been available for a while, so it is quite interesting comparing which Wikipedia articles are being edited the most, and which topics are currently hot on Google.
There isn’t a huge amount of similarity, but you could easily build up quite a portfolio of lenses with very little effort.
I suggest doing a bit of extra effort to get some more unique information, but using these 2 sources for keyword research could allow you to test out some niche ideas on Squidoo that you could then develop further on your own domains.
p.s. for reputation management make sure you knock something together quickly for yourself as well.
