Step 6, associated with Step 5, lets you copy in your Adsense web search code, if you use it. When you sign up for Adsense, you haverepparttar option of displaying context-sensitive ads and of allowing a Google search from your pages. The code we're talking about here isrepparttar 145345 code that supportsrepparttar 145346 search. Entering it in Step 6 of Directory Generator is optional.

Step 7 inrepparttar 145347 Directory Generator process lets you control how many results should be shown on your results pages. You can choose a fixed number or letrepparttar 145348 tool present a random number of results (a number between a lower and upper bound, say between 5 and 15, for example). Step 7 also lets you choose link colors, and how your generated pages will be stored in folders, that is, all inrepparttar 145349 root directory, or in a subfolder ofrepparttar 145350 root.

Step 8 isrepparttar 145351 article entry form. Directory Generator lets you add articles directly into your generated pages - a good, convenient way to add useful content to your site.

Step 9, called Add Ons, gives you a place to add Audio Generator code if you're using that product to add audio to your pages. You can paste in RSS Equalizer code intorepparttar 145352 second box, again, if you're using that product, and you can paste Amazon code intorepparttar 145353 third add-in box if you choose to, to support selling Amazon items.

Step 10 lets you add an exclusion list if there are particular sites you don't want included in your results pages - like your competitors sites, for example.

Step 11 lets you specifyrepparttar 145354 folder you want your generated pages to be stored in, and provides a few other parameters that determine how fastrepparttar 145355 generation process will run. It also provides a test function that let's you see whatrepparttar 145356 pages will look like before you generaterepparttar 145357 entire set.

That's all there is too it! Nothing very complicated at all. Byrepparttar 145358 way, here's a little helpful hint. Directory Generator goes to another site to get a thumbnail picture of each website listed onrepparttar 145359 results page. If your personal firewall is too tight, you may not see these thumbnails displayed when you look at your generated pages on your site. I thought initially that Directory Generator wasn't working properly (it is) until it dawned on me to look at my security log on my machine. Once I twiddled my settings, everything looked fine.

I haven't found a bug inrepparttar 145360 program yet - I did, however, try to use one ofrepparttar 145361 input files in a Directory Generator run while I had it open for editing - and guess what? Directory Generator told me so...So, from my personal experience, it appears to be well-written code - not some slapdash thing put together overnight. So if you're interested in putting some sites out there for any reason - Adsense income is a good one - try this product. I'm pretty sure you'll like what you see.

Web Conferencing - What is it?

Written by Diane Parker

Online collaboration is an excellent resource for project management, especially when team members are located in different geographical locations. Online collaboration provides an advanced level of document management and file sharing. Documents and files can be viewed, modified and updated online and in real time.

What Are The Benefits Of Web Conferencing?

The main benefits of web conferencing are to be found in terms of time and money savings. The need for travel is greatly reduced, and therefore so arerepparttar associated costs of travel - tickets, accommodation, subsistence, to name but a few. Employees spend less time waiting for flights, travel or just generally being away from their desk and therefore have more time to spend productively.

Enhanced communication is another benefit of web conferencing. Where colleagues could perhaps only meet face to face a few times a year, for example, web conferencing allows them to meet on a daily basis, if required. With people talking more, work gets done more efficiently and more accurately.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of web conferencing depends on how sophisticated an application you need. Low-level, one-to-one systems can be set up these days for virtually nothing. The most advanced systems, unsurprisingly, can run into thousands of dollars. Careful research, however, and thoughtful analysis of what you need from a web conferencing system can allow you to budget accordingly and match a system to your needs. The chances are, if you are spending money on travel then you will recouprepparttar 145124 cost of your web conferencing software over time.
