    Ok , I have 4 articles published at Ezine, 15 lenses at squidoo, 13 ads at usfreeads, not to mention several other types of things going on. No sales, not even one. Can someone look at my squidoo lens of one I have all over the place and see why I am not converting. It must be my writing or keywords or something I am missing. Please help.

    It ranks well on google......

    Hi Anita,

    Lens looks good. It's also well-written. You just need to add a few things.

    You might:

    1. Add a couple more text modules complete with an image or two. It would be a little better if the lens was a bit longer.

    2. Expand upon what you brought up in the introduction module. Your visitors will expect you to deliver on that. Be specific and go into more details about what you've introduced such as budget and what to look for in which components.

    That should improve things significantly.

    Hi Anita,

    I think a few pictures would be really nice ( I love visual!) and don't be afraid to write about your own experiences with mountain biking... [​IMG]

    Here are a few tips:

    1) add a few pictures and as NS suggested, more content

    2)set up a blog to go with it and link to your squidoo lens

    3)write an article every few days that links both to your blog and lens

    4)And.... know what I would do? Make about 4 more lenses on mountain bikes - on different topics about them - link them all together with the 'featured lens' module

    5)keep writing articles, adding stuff to your lenses and posting to your blog

    I have an article at Ezine about Riding Tips, A usfreead, and a website. I didn't think about a blog. I will go look for more pictures and will add more content. Thank you both for the help, it is most appreciated.

    Boss, articles wont get any sales unless they get traffic from serps. They are mainly meant for backlinks... Try to rank it in search engines for main keywords...

    My article called Mountain Bike Riding Tips at Ezine is ranking 9 on google. It was up higher at one time. That article has a backlink to my squidoo lens Buying A Mountain Bike. Is that how it should be? Maybe my keywords aren't linked or something. I don't know, keyword stuff is still a bit over my head.

    I know how to find keywords and how to use them in articles and such but am not sure if I should use the same ones or what for different articles. Did that make sense?

    I did go in and change my article at Squidoo. Hope I improved it some.

    Thanks again,

    Hi Anita,

    I like the images you've added.

    If I recall correctly, you did add a couple tidbits on budget and components, yes?

    The lens is better now.

    I did join your fanclub plus rate it and favorite it. I also interacted on two other lenses of yours. I'm the electric guitar avatar.
