If you have built a website or if you are using a blog I would strongly suggest spending an hour or so today at Squidoo.
Squidoo is a cool little place and I hope I can do it justice. You will not make a living with Squidoo at this point and they are the first to tell you that but you can increase your website traffic by using it. It is almost like a blog but not quite. 
It is a place where you can talk about your favorite subject.  You are welcome to set it up however you like with links to your own websites and blogs, your favorite websites and blogs. You favorite books and gadgets or just whatever you can think of.
Instead of a blog at squidoo you have a "lens" this is a one page "report" on a topic.  You are the lensmaster of your lens and you can build as many lenses as you like on as many topics as you like. 
When you first set up your lens it will already have "modules" in it.  A module is where you can set up your own links, use the ones provided.  You can add more modules or delete the ones that are you given.
The modules are what will generate traffic and income for you.  You can set up modules for amazon, ebay, a shopping mall etc. 
In addition each lens shows google adsense ads.  Squidoo has set this place up as a co-op.  This means that you will get a portion of the revenue generated from your lens.  Some goes back to the business, some goes to charity and some gets put into the "pool".  You can see the actual formula in the FAQ's
The biggest reason at this point to join Squidoo is for you to share information and generate traffic to your websites and blogs.  Len's get a lot of respect from the search engine.  This is a great way to increase your pagerank if nothing else.  Join Squidoo
