So this morning I am making a new lens for my 6StepNicheSites.com that is focused on teaching others about creating a niche website. I managed to get it published the first time (in very rough form), but after I went back in to dress the lens up and make it look pretty, I got the ol’ Uh-Oh message from Squidoo saying my lens tripped the spam filter. Wonderful.

Naturally, this lens is NOT promoting any Squidoo No-No’s, so I went back in the lens and scanned it, and re-scanned, and then re-re-scanned it for anything that might possibly mean something else.

Still locked.

Squidoo is GOOD at blocking spam and I know that spam filter is there for a reason (and it is a reason that benefits ALL of us that work on Squidoo), but for the life of me, I can’t figure out what is causing this humble little lens to get a slap on the wrist.

I put in for a hand review from the Squidoo staff. Last time I had a lens locked, I was scared to death. If, for some reason, whoever does the hand review deems I AM promoting a no-no , my whole account could get deleted. ACK!

I have no doubt this will get cleared up, but in the meantime, my new lens is ‘on hold’ for three days…sigh. Bright side is that I will learn, and pass on, another thing that ‘trips’ the Squidoo spam filters – and NOT do it again! 🙂

This is the new lens: Creating a Niche Website For Beginners

What you see is the really rough beginning of it. I like to publish my lenses after I get a basic outline and some content on it to take a peak and see how it’s looking. Am I the only one that does that?

Once this issue is straightened out, I’ll fill y’all in with the details.
