There are so many places a person can visit online. You can get lost if you are not careful. You want to make sure if you have a website or blog it will be seen. Your blog or website can be your main home, but you should also have a home away from home. Your away from home could be a squidoo lens, social networks and other online communities. These are all places where people can find you. We as internet marketer's want people to find us online. It's the only way people can find you and get to know you. If you are lucky they will purchase from you if you are selling something. You don't have to have 50 blogs or 50 squidoo lenses. I wouldn't recommend that if you are just getting started. If you have too much going on you will lose focus. I think it's nice to have more than one place to be found. Your chances of being found online are way better if you have more than one place to be found at. It's just like having a grocery store. All grocery stores usually have more than one store and in different locations.
With squidoo.com and instantblogsubscribers and article directories you can type the url of your blog or website on your site. Giving people a chance to check out other places you may be writing at. It's a great way to get traffic. I like the fact that people can find me through different places. Search engine is the best traffic but I prefer not to put my eggs all in one basket. I know some people don't have a blog or website but I believe you should have one or the other or both ,because people need a place where they can find you and your blog or website is that place.
I myself have found people through squidoo and blog/article directories. So, I know that it does work. Especially if you haven't established your presence online yet. It also helps if you participate in the communities. The majority of communities allow you to link to your website or blog. Even if you are writing about different topics you should still have your main website or blog url on your other sites. If people like what you write they maybe interested in your other topics too. Don't assume that they won't be. Give them a chance to make a decision. You might be surprised. Even if they aren't it won't affect you. They may like at least one of your other topics. Having more than one home online gives you the ability to advertise affiliate programs pertaining to each of your sites topics. That way your main blog won't have to go off topic and be cluttered. You can spread it out a little bit and make some extra money too. You might find other blogs and lenses that you are interested in reading. It's nice to be able to check out other people's blogs or lenses.
