If there were ever any questions as to the effectiveness of press releases, take a look at this. The national and local Budget Blinds website received a new site design, so the Wilmington Budget Blinds issued a press release announcing this. Well, not only does this PR appear for local results with a variety of phrases, but it also appears on page two for the primo phrase, “Budget Blinds”. Who knows, this release could move on up in the ranks and sit right next to the corporate site….
Why not try a press release, they work!

squid_logo_h_sm No, I personally do not like squid, perhaps to use for fishing, but Squidoo I do like! What is it? 

Well, it is sort of a personal blog slash web site thingy, a place where you can place your authority information, life’s issues, products, and much more.  If you are a professional in a trade, business, or just want to rant about something, create a Squidoo account and start several “lenses”.  What is a lens?  These are essentially individual web pages that you create on a variety of subjects, focus, and or products you want to advertise. 

Honestly, It is kind of hard to tell you exactly every feature of this cool product, so below are two lenses I made for the my Internet marketing business.  These lenses (pages) are still evolving, but you get the idea. 

I would like to add that Squidoo is a phenomenal way to not only market yourself or your product, but it delivers incredible page rank, and visitors to sites that link to you, and your Squidoo page.  In fact, notice what a recent article from Seo-News.com said about the possible SEO affects.

“One important facet of your Squidoo lens is that it could be listed on Google, or any of the other search engines, for your major keywords, and you should not lose sight of any promotional techniques that provide you with free exposure on search engines.”

I say give it a try, then ping all the social bookmarking sites (buttons appear right on the Squidoo page) You have nothing to lose, and TRAFFIC to gain!

Here are my Squidoo lenses:
