Squidoo seems to have missed the mark when it comes to offering an information community. A quick look at the top Squidoo lenses reveals that most of the information on the site is either for SEO purposes or money making purposes. This may well be the intention of the website, to create a way for people to build their own profiles without breaking SEO rules. However it seems it is falling shorter than something like Hub Pages as a corner of information for the web.
Squidoo is a website that allows anyone to publish and create a community. The pages people create are called “lenses”. Lenses are pages that gather everything someone knows about one topic. It’s a simple, fun and interesting way to develop a community online that does not revolve around Facebook. Apart from the fact that Squidoo is currently filled with spam, it is a neat idea.
