Of all the modules used in Squidoo the one I see mistakes (if you can call them that) on the most is the big arrow module. I guess people find it a little confusing, and that’s probably because Squidoo makes it so simple.
I thought I would go through today and show you just how to put your information in the Big Arrow module so you don’t get your code showing through on your lens.
(I’m gonna do a pictorial walk through and then I’ll shoot a quick video ~ trying to make everyone happy here)
To get started you’re going to need the affiliate link for your product from Amazon.
Once you highlight your url (like the above image) right click and then choose copy. Now you’re going to take that link to Squidoo.
There’s 3 steps to filling in the big arrow module:
1. Enter your affiliate link in the top box.
2. Fill in your product keyword in the second box
3. Click save.
If you’ve got code showing when you look at your big arrow module when your lens is published it is because you’ve grabbed code from Amazon instead of JUST the url ~ they give you a lot more, you just need the actual url.
Here’s a quick video showing the process. I also show you how it will look if you acccidentally grab code from Amazon, that way if you see some code in your link you will know what the problem is and how to fix it.
Hopefully this clears up any confusion about the big arrow module at Squidoo. If you have other module specific questions feel free to ask them in the comment section and I’ll do my best to answer them. Don’t forget if you need some one on one squidoo help I’m always here
Make it a great day and take action!
