Valentine Lens Experiment, Day 2

Less than 24 hours after I posted the launch of my new Valentine Crafts for Kids lens and added external links it got 10 visits - Google indexed the lens and brought in traffic, and a few blog readers followed the link (thank you).

Overall Squidoo lens rank jumped upwards by more than 100K and the lens ranking in the Family category rose by several thousand.

Lens Rank - 16,319
Family Category Rank - 568

What I Did Yesterday
In addition to the initial announcement link from this blog, inbound links were added to the lens from 3 deep content-related pages on my parenting site, and I made a link from 1 brief post on Pastiche Printables blog.

What I Did Today
  • Added a public Guestbook with a Valentine clip art illustration in the intro text.
  • Added a new Valentine paper craft as a text with big picture module (heart shaped eyeglasses mask).
  • Linked descriptive text in the paper craft module to the web site page where the craft printable resides and can be downloaded.
  • Linked the Valentine clip art in the Guestbook with a descriptive text credit line to the web site where it can be downloaded.
  • Lensrolled Crafts for Kids-Valentine Crafts lens to Paper Toys lens.
