Here’s a couple of ideas to help you, and me, get those lenses out of the red and into the green.
1. If your WIP is there because it’s fallen in lensrank, try editing the lens using the Less is More tips found HERE. You’d be surprised what a little tender loving care can do for a lens.
While you’re editing your lens, make sure that all of its content is focused on your chosen topic. Remove anything that might be confusing the search engines such as unrelated affiliate ads and banners or products that just don’t quite fit in with your theme. Check that your module titles and tags all match your chosen topic as well.
2. If you’re WIP is there because you wanted to save the link for a future date, either get to work on the lens immediately while you still have some passion for it, or delete the link entirely.
I know… when you created that link, you had all kinds of super ideas for making it into a terrific lens but after a while, you lost your enthusiasm. That’s okay. It happens to a lot of us. Let it go. You won’t believe how much better you’ll feel without all of that unfinished-lens-guilt hanging over your head.
Trust me, once you’ve done all that you can to help turn your dashboard green again, your mind will be free to get really creative on a brand new lens.
