Squidoo lens for Oregon Seabirds Pelagic Bird Tours

In order to attempt to reach a larger audience of potential pelagic birders I have created a Squidoo lens (

Squidoo is an eclectic online publishing and advertising site. But it ranks well in the search engines. So I thought I'd put up a page and select the keywords that don't already rank well for The Bird Guide Inc.'s web site. The goal is to find more pelagic birders for our trip, as we've had to cancel a trip already this spring for lack of signup.

 The one thing is, though, that in order to get submitted to the search engines it has to reach a certain level of internal traffic first. Like getting the experience necessary to get your first job, it is a bit of a Catch 22. So you have to promote it yourself for a while before it catches on. This is my attempt. Take a look if you're so inclined and let me know what you think of Squidoo or my lens there.
