The tools on this site are provided for lensmasters to use only with their own lenses and accounts. Please refrain from logging in as someone else. While information displayed here is publicly available, it is recommended that you only use accounts that are registered to you because many of the links in tools such as the Advanced Dashboard go to pages that can only be accessed by being properly logged into Squidoo itself.
This website is developed and maintained independently of Squidoo, LLC. SquidTools and A3 Labs are not affiliated with Squidoo in any capacity (official or unofficial). As such, there is no guarantee on the lifespan of the tools and information provided on this site due to the ever changing nature of the internet and potentially unforeseen factors.
A3 Labs, Inc.
A3 Labs, Inc. is a small software development corporation headed by Matthew Gowdy and based in Bozeman, MT in the USA. Matt has some familiarity with Squidoo and was one of the original Citizen Squids. This site is an attempt to provide useful tools to lensmasters who may be looking for more automated or professional ways to perform certain tasks on lenses.
SquidTools would like to thank SquidUtils.com for being the inspiration behind this site and several tools.
Some information may be temporarily cached for speed and efficiency. This technique is also employed to make sure our scripts do not add undue stress to the data source server. Caching is generally performed for short periods of time (5-10 minutes) and the cache table is cleared at the end of each day. We do not keep personalized information without informing the user and attaining their permission.
Non-personal information may be submitted for analytics purposes.
All non-authenticated information is available from public sources. This applies particularly to the Advanced Dashboard which leverages a number of public feeds, auto-generated links, and free API services to allow a lensmaster with the right login on Squidoo.com to gain additional functionality from our tools.
Some concern has been voiced as to lensmasters “logging in” with credentials that are not their own. While the concern is valid, from a technical standpoint on this site, it is a non-issue. No one except for you has access to your lenses in an edit or stat capacity. Only a user that has been logged into Squidoo.com can edit, view stats, or view revenue from lenses and these processes can only be performed on Squidoo.com, not through SquidTools.
If you have any additional concerns or questions, please feel free to contact us and we’ll do our best to clear things up.
