5 Free Tools to Help You Build Content
Rich Websites

Author: Jinger Jarrett


There are so many ways to build a website that sometimes it can be
confusing.

The first thing you need to decide when building a website is, what is
its primary purpose?

Will you use your site only to build a list, will you provide content,
do you want to generate passive income?

These are all questions you want to answer before you begin to build
your website.

Once you decide what type of website you want to build, then choose the
right tools. This will save you a lot of frustration in building a new
website, and it's not really necessary for your to understand HTML in
order to build an effective website.

1. Landing Pages
Landing page builders are effective if you want to build a list. You
can also use them to help you promote on sites like Google Adwords or
Overture.

Most of these sites require some type of landing page now because they
won't allow you send your traffic directly to an affiliate program.

You can use these tools to help you build landing pages for your pay
per click campaigns.

pages and add your Google Adsense publisher ID.

2. Content Pages
Content will make your site sticky. This is especially effective if you
choose to use some type of program like Google Adsense to monetize your
site.

The easiest way to make your site sticky is to use articles. Make sure
that the articles you choose are valuable to your readers and solve a
problem.

You also want to choose keyword rich articles targeted to your market.

the article directories. It will also format the articles in HTML for

site online.

If you don't know how to write HTML, there are editors available to you
that will do this for you.

you can totally change the look of your site.

It's also much easier to add and organize content.

The most important aspects of a content management system are ease of
use and search engine friendly.

5. Other Scripts
If the thought of creating or writing content makes you crazy, let
others create it for you.

The easiest way to add content to your site is to offer an article
directory. Then all you have to do is monetize and promote your new site.

Article Dashboard - http://www.articledashboard.com - is a free article
script you can use to create your own article directory. It's very easy
to customize, and very search engine friendly. It also incorporates
RSS, as well as email, allowing you to build a list, as well as promote in
RSS directories.

Regardless of what solution you choose for building your website, make
it search engine friendly, well organized, and rich in content and
resources.

Choose your tools before you build your website, and you'll build a
better website.
