Squidoo: Changes to Ranking

Filed under: Breadcrumbs — Bricoleur @ 2:29 am

This post indicates that as of Feb 5, 200s Squidoo has gone to a 14-day rolling window for its LensRank calculation… while the same measures (things like traffic, click-outs, reader ratings, inbound link and affiliate sales) are to be used,  the calculation will no longer give an advantage of ‘grandfathering’ to the oldest lens…. much more dynamic…. and the the effect will mean that current popularity is going to be pretty important…  hopefully the 14-days will not prove to be too short a window…. while “Event” based lenses (Superbowl XL for example) should ‘roll out qucikly’ there are some things that might suffer adversely by being pushed out of the limelight before there time…. it will be interesting to see how things shake out.  Certainly it would seem to make continual work by a Lensmaster more important than  it was during the  early beta where period updates could move rankings dramatically.
