Squidoo and RSS – be sure to look at the code

Squidoo and RSS – All is not as it seems – so be sure to look at the code!

The source code of your squidoo lens pages that is! (go to “Page Source” or “View source” in your browser)

I just realized that the lenses on which I have added RSS Feeds do NOT pass any benefit to the links from the feeds – in fact – it is not even search engine friendly.

What does that mean? Well – all it means is that when you have squidoo show your RSS feeds – the squidoo pages do NOT show any of the words from what it displays – if that’s not bad enough it does not even have the URLs on the page with a “nofollow” – it’s simply code gobblygook and has no seo benefit whatsoever.

That means that Google will NOT see any fresh new words as the RSS feeds change and they will not see the links in the feed items presented.


Squdioo would have been a great place to get some link  juice with RSS and at the very least adding RSS feeds would have been a great way to add DYNAMIC content to squidoo lens pages so the content on thepages change as the feeds do – BUT NO!

So… if you want link juice passed – simply HARD CODE the links into your TEXT that you write for your lens. By hard code I mean make sure YOU link what you want yourself and do not count on squidoo to do the right thing!

Hot Tip: Hey – here is a nugget for reading down to the bottom of this page > get some good link juice from your RSS feeds at rss2 . >>> EXAMPLE PAGE with TV Robot Feeds – simply submit your site URL or FEED URL and they’ll parse your feed and display links to all your pages! Hows that for service! That’s more like the way it should be!

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index, which covers both A and B shares, shed 102.72 points to 3,369.99.The index slumped 37 percent in the first quarter of 2008, posting the biggest percentage quarterly drop in 15 years.”The market stayed in a downward trend as the government has not issued major market-boosting policies.” said Liao Wenkai, an analyst at Hengtai Securities.”Investor confidence was severely hit by recent sharp falls and they are overreacting to any negatives.” Liao also added that China’s high inflation would be a drag on corporate earnings.Luo, Wang Fengxiu and the other senior citizens in and around the stadium may not have to worry about employment when the situation returns to normal.

  10. What’s even worse is that when Google “reads” your page, if you have a bunch of rss feeds, all Google will see is “Fetching RSS feed, please wait”, and Google will start to rank you for RSS keywords. So make sure you have plenty of content on the page, not just RSS feeds. Google does however, read the description section of the RSS module, so you can hard code some of the links into the description section and Google will read them (but they won’t be dynamically updated)
