Backing up the content of your Squidoo lens is important these days as Squidoo is becoming more and more strict on its quality guidelines and lenses are getting locked if they smell anything spammy.
How to Backup Squidoo Lens
You need to backup your squidoo lenses so that you don't risk the lost of your valuable work. Here is a few ways that you can back-up:
1) Copy the modules to a word file - the drawback here it that it is rather time consuming
2) Export the lenses to an xml file and save to your computer
Unfortunately there isn't a way that I know of to automatically restore you squidoo lenses back-up.
I'm not really crazy for squidoo anymore. It gave some real nice results as well quick indexing once. But now it take a life to get them indexed and some of even perfect lenses are never indexed no matter what you do.
Edit your lens and click on the "export the lens" on the bottom of the right side screen. This will save the XML file that describe your lens. I recommend creating a folder such as \Squidoo_backup\ and place the file there. Next, go to view your lens and from your browser, click on File on the menu bar. Next click on Save Page As... and make sure you choose the option to save Web Page Complete. Specify the same folder as before. This will save a HTML file of your lens and create a sub-folder containing all the objects on your lens (such as images and video and audio. That's all there is to it. You have just created a full backup of your lens. From these files you will be able to recreate your lens in case you accidentally delete it.
too bad two of my squidoo lense was already locked they're getting strict really.
