Squidoo helped me celebrate Canada Day by featuring my Seven Places to See in Canada Before You Die lens as the Lens of the Day (LOTD). A LOTD lens gets prominently featured on the main page of Squidoo for 24 hours as well as getting mentioned in the main newsletter and blog.
I knew something was up when I logged on and there were 30 new comments. As the day progressed it grew to over a 100. With so much traffic from fellow lensmakers and visitors my lens quickly climbed from 2000-ish to 18 in their ranking system.
This was actually good timing because I was in the process of updating the images from the old demised flickr module to the “shiny” gallery module. I still have to dig some photos out of an album but the lens is looking better than it ever has so I am proud of the placement.
