For every item you add to Squidoo.com you can create 20 tags for your lens. A tag is for all intents, a meta tag. Tags are similar to site descriptions, so you want to create tags that or “labels” for your lens that are filled with keyword rich terms or phrases to promote your site and improve your page rank.
You should always use research to identify the best keywords to use as tags for your lens. For example, use the keyword selector tool at Overture.com to identify popular keywords or keyword phrases you can use as tags for your site.
Just like the content on your sales page is important for the success of your Website, so too is the copy you write for your lens page. Your introduction and the body of your lens page should include strong and compelling copy that will encourage visitors to click through the links you have on your page.
The introduction or first paragraph of your page will be most important, because this is the first part of your page that will attract the visitor’s attention. If you do not have a dynamic headline and do not provide interesting and compelling information, visitors will skip on to another page.
Here are some tips for creating great copy for your intro paragraphs and page:
- Keep your information short and concise.
- Provided targeted and helpful information.
- Explain clearly what benefits you plan to provide your visitors.
Some people find the easiest way to keep people interested in simply writing a review of the site or products they promote as their introductory paragraph. If you have a succinct and enticing description, you will attract more click-throughs.
If you can, also include an image of your product so people are more likely to click-through and get more information about what it is you offer.
Focus on your credibility and the benefits your product or service provides to others…
Remember, people do not want to see blatant sales copy, even though your copy must be strong. They want to read between the lines, and confirm you are an expert in the subject you talk about.
