I’m sure many of you are familiar with the phenomena of squidoo pages. The great site developed by marketing whiz Seth Godin, where you can write about almost anything under the sun and instantly become considered an expert on your topic. Well – almost instantly.

The PR ranking for these sites were extremely high about a year ago – and some say they have been taking a hit by google recently, but the ranking is still worth the effort. Especially if you build a squidoo page around the topic of your niche.

Another new cool squidoo offering – is to build a page about “people” only on This site is pretty much the same principle as squidoo, except that you can’t build a page around say things like “laptop bags” – only on people.

This is great for us buzz builders! We can build a site that will get us some great google love all about us. While there are pages on many famous people – the site also invites the not-so-famous to create pages as well. So don’t be intimitated by the Top 100 on the home page. You’ll be there soon:)
