Squidoo and Adsense


Many people mention squidoo, and some of them compare squidoo with hubpages, I have an account on hubpages, and set up my Adsense ID in my hubpages profile along with Kontera, Amazon and eBay. I tried to sign up an account with squidoo, and started to create a lens, but I couldn't find anywhere to insert my Adsense ID.

And I found out that actually you couldn't use your Adsense ID on squidoo! Squidoo uses theirs and then when the ads are clicked on your lenses, you get your share from squidoo.

Adsense revenue is calculated like this: All revenue is dropped in one big pool. 45% is subtracted for Squidoo operations, 5% goes to Squidoo charity. That leaves 50% in the pool for lensmasters (owners of lenses). That pool is then divided according to an algorithm.

This is quite funny, and you will find more on this if earning loyalty is your main concern.

And if you haven't got your own Adsense account or for some reasons banned by Google, it's a good way to publish and earn through Squidoo.

Good post.
We have a pretty good comparison of Squidoo and Hubpages over on our blog that covers a couple of interesting and useful points.

Thanks again for the info.

Good info about squidoo.
It is kindof fishy the way Squidoo does their adsense integration. I love that in hubpages you can put your own code in and trak things from your own adsense account!

I am with you. But if people get banned by Google or due to some other reasons they haven't got an Adsense account, the Squidoo might be a good alternative.

yes it all seems a bit sided towards squidoo to me - is it possible to make money using these pages I wonder?

I have just recently found out also that the 50% left for the lensmasters is divided up amongst the top 85,000 lenses. So, if your lens isn't in the top 85,000...and earns money through adsense...you don't see a dime.

Not sure that's exactly fair.

I'm not sure if my first comment went through cause there was no word verification below.

Anyhow, my comment was that I have recently found also that the 50% of the adsense funds that is divided amongst the lensmasters is only divided among those whose lenses are in the top 85,000. So, if your lense is higher thatn 85,000 and is earning adsense...you won't see a dime.

Not sure that's entirely fair. I can't seem to find a reason for it.

Yeha, they earn a lot from adsense. This is Squidoo's tactics though. But if you gain some profits from it, then it is a win-win situation.

Well I did a Squidoo lens about Saudi Arabia. How do I get some money from AdSense? How do I place AdSense in this lens?

Virgin Media Netgear Wireless Router Username and Password

As Virgin Media customer, if you find your wireless router is Netgear, then you may type the router's setup URL into a web browser address bar. http://192.168.0.1 is the default Netgear router IP address. http://192.168.1.1 will work for some Netgear models. Mine setup URL is http://192.168.1.1 . Then you are required to enter a username and password. If you haven't change the default setting, it is "virgin" and "password", you may find that on a label stuck on the router. This default username and password of Virgin Wireless router is different from that of the normal Netgear router. The default username of Netgear is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Then you open the configure interface, change the settings, such as change your DNS server to OpenDNS . For a normal Netgear router, if you forget the username and password, you can reset and restore the NETGEAR device to factory default settings. But I couldn't find any button on

URL cannot contain a Google host

Google just opened up Knol to the public. Knol is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site. Authors on Knol can enter their AdSense data into Knol, and will get the regular AdSense payout for every click on an ad. This seems like a smart way to reward users who write the best (or most popular) content, while still making money for Google, because the cut Google already takes from the advertising through AdSense anyway. Currently, I don't know how may we track ads performance on knol, I tried to add an URL channel, and got error message: "http://knol.google.com/k/-/k3-searching-tv-programs-using-teletext/2p3t2lhf3x6sj/6#" at line 1 invalid: URL cannot contain a Google host. Has anybody any idea of how to do it?
