Squidoo Guest Book Modules Two Mistakes to Avoid

Squidoo lenses in general are expected to have a guestbook. A guestbook module makes it easy for other lensmasters to leave comments and let you know how they liked your lens. Not everyone is going to feel bold enough to contact you directly, so it's a nice way to get quick feedback for your lenses.

However, many new Squidoo lensmasters make some big mistakes with their guestbooks. They might not seem like a big deal, but avoiding these mistakes can mean the difference between a lens that's “just OK" and a great lens. Here are the main ones to avoid:

* Not renaming the guestbook. It looks really tacky to see a guestbook entitled “New Guestbook. " Even if your lens is otherwise perfect, this one tiny detail will make a bad impression. It looks unprofessional. Take the time to edit your guestbook and rename it. While you're at it, be sure to include a customized message that invites people to leave feedback.

* Not putting the guestbook at the end. It's a standard practice to place a guestbook at the end of your lens. In fact, many people will stop at your guestbook module and won't scroll down any further. That's why you shouldn't put your guestbook in the middle of your lens, even if you're trying to use it as a discussion board. If you want to creation a section for discussion in the middle of your lens, add a duel module instead.

There are other ways to improve your guestbook module and make it even more inviting for visitors to sign. However, you'll do quite well just by remembering these two tips.
