Seth Godin Squidoo Article
Pauline Kerbici from High Rankings recently posted an interview with Seth Godin about Squidoo. She asks some interesting questions about Squidoo and SEO. Several interesting points arise. She pointed out some over-hyped content on Squidoo where they previously touted the Google PR-raising value of having a Squidoo lens. Pauline notes that the offending text was removed shortly after the interview. He says they aren't building their business to pleas Google, but he admits that the "spam overhaul" came after they got dinged by Google. He also closes by emphasizing that they've done a lot of good through the charities that they support, which I agree is a very cool part of the whole Squidoo concept. In fact, I think it would be cool to set up a similar network that gives all the money back to charities, rather than just 5% or whatever these guys do.
