Written by Peter Cullen

Directory Generator, a product from Armand Morin and Marc Quarles, builds directory-style websites for you in a matter of minutes. It is simple to use, it's reliable, it does what it claims to do. The tool is essentially a push-button site builder - all you really have to do is uploadrepparttar generated pages to your host system. There are no fancy technical skills involved.

Directory Generator gives you control overrepparttar 145345 finished product in a number of ways, one of which is that you can put a "classified"-style ad on each page. As I alluded to above, there is a form in Directory Generator that lets you paste your Adsense code into it, and out come your Adsense ads on your site. You can even controlrepparttar 145346 approach to your file directory structure on your host i.e. put all your generated pages inrepparttar 145347 root, or in a sub-folder that you name.

You will literally be building very professional looking sites within minutes of getting your hands on this tool. It is, of course, still up to you to decide whatrepparttar 145348 topic ofrepparttar 145349 site will be! :>> Yes, we all still have to think just a little bit. Here's an overview of how it works. The program interface is neat and clean and easy to use. There's a series of tabs acrossrepparttar 145350 top ofrepparttar 145351 screen labeled Step 1 through Step 11.

Step 1 asks you to enterrepparttar 145352 URL ofrepparttar 145353 site you're building. No problem so far. You also enter a text string that describesrepparttar 145354 site and gets used asrepparttar 145355 "header" inrepparttar 145356 header graphic. Still with me? Now just click onrepparttar 145357 Step 2 tab, which shows you a form that let's you enter a classified-style ad. What a handy place to promote one of your own products. You enter an ad title, thenrepparttar 145358 URL you wantrepparttar 145359 reader sent to when they click, and thenrepparttar 145360 body ofrepparttar 145361 add itself. Still nothing complex, right?

Step 3 is where you selectrepparttar 145362 HTML template that you will use forrepparttar 145363 generated web pages. There are three fields to be filled in; one namesrepparttar 145364 location ofrepparttar 145365 template for your index page,repparttar 145366 second namesrepparttar 145367 location ofrepparttar 145368 template for you results page, andrepparttar 145369 third givesrepparttar 145370 location ofrepparttar 145371 header graphic that appears on each page. The nice part of this step is thatrepparttar 145372 two templates and a header graphic are included withrepparttar 145373 software, so you can just go ahead and use them and get on withrepparttar 145374 job. As you move along with site building, you'll probably customize these items, but you don't have to right away.

Step 4 asks forrepparttar 145375 location of your input keyword file. These arerepparttar 145376 keywords that describe your site. You'll want to have a pretty large set of these. Directory Generator generates one web page per keyword. A keyword file of from 100 to a few thousand keywords is recommended. Where will you get such a set of good keywords? Well, one place is a tool called Good Keywords. You can download it for free at It is very nicely done and very easy to use.

Step 5 isrepparttar 145377 form that lets you add in your Google Adsense code. If you're already using Adsense, all you really have to do is log in to Adsense and copyrepparttar 145378 Adsense code you're already using intorepparttar 145379 Directory Generator entry form. If you're not using Adsense yet, well, sign up and also use it on your Directory Generator sites. You can leaverepparttar 145380 Adsense code forms in Step 5 empty if you choose to. You just won't be displaying Adsense ads on your generated site.
