I’ve been a devoted fan of the My Lens module since it was first launched and I’ve got at least one of them on every lens, but they’re no good!
The bad news is – they are set to not be visible to Google. So the links aren’t visible to Google either!
Neither is the Featured Lens module or the Plexo.
Thanks to Katinka for discovering this and letting us know about it.
Over this weekend I discovered that the modules and widgets most of us use to interlink our own content, are in fact at present not seen by Google at all. .. when you feature a lens, your own or someone elses, that link is only seen by visitors, not by search engines.

The only linking module in Squidoo I trust my links to at present is the link list module.
And that’s enough for me. I have a huge job ahead – to interlink every lens that I have with the Links List module.
If you want your links to be indexed by the search engines, you’l have to use the Links List too.
Have a read of Katinka’s post, she quotes an interesting exchange between herself and Megan and even more interesting comments on Squidoo. Very interesting indeed.
