Is It Time to Archive Your Content? - Content Management
(Page 2 of 4 )
If you plan on having different types of content on your site -- forums, articles, blogs, etc. -- youíll eventually need a content management system to help you organize your pages. This helps you not only keep everything organized, but it also helps you conserve space on your site through archived content. Often, these systems help you write, manage and even publish the content straight to your site. Content management systems make it much easier for you to hold and offer a large amount of different types of content on your site.
When it comes to the Internet, content is everything, and content management systems make it possible for your site to offer everything to your traffic.
Many times, Web sites which offer page or blog space will also offer an easy-to-use content management system. Sites such as WordPress and Yahoo, for instance, provide basic content systems to make it much easier to manage, create and publish content for the Web. Often, these content management systems will automatically archive old content for you. Youíll set the parameters (content that is x days old will become archived), and the system does the rest.
Why are content management systems so special? In effect, these systems help you store your content so that your text wonít take up all the space on your Web site. Content management systems archive content, suppressing and storing it away, so that itís still technically in the system but no longer visible on the main pages of your Web site. In other words, the system wonít unpack and pull up the content unless requested through a Web query. This means youíll save space for more new content on your pages.
