Is It Time to Archive Your Content? - Finding the Right System
(Page 4 of 4 )
Finding the right content management system will help you manage your space and your site with ease. Not sure where to start? Wikipedia offers an online list of content management systems to help you find just the right one. There are also several Web sites which provide free and inexpensive systems for your content needs.
The Free Country offers content management as well as site-building help. Other sites, such as Web Widgets and JoJo provide content management as well as other online services and tools for Webmasters.
With a Content Management System (often referred to as CMS in the online world), you can manage and archive your content with much more ease. Finding the right system could be a lengthy process for some Webmasters, depending on their content needs. Not all systems are the same, and some are more user-friendly than others. Use trial and error and play with your CMS. Try to find one with which you’re comfortable, one that seems to work well with the site. Learn how to use the system to enter, publish and archive content on your site.
When any Webmaster first starts using a CMS, the system may seem strange and hard to use. But these systems are designed specifically to make content management and publication easy. Take advantage of the system, save space on your site and keep on adding that new content to your pages. With the right content management system, you should be able to build your Web site (and your content) in a very simple, straightforward way.
How is archived content different? Think of these old blog posts, articles and other pieces of content as going into a storage closet. Through links, traffic can still pull the exact item from the closet that they wish, but the content of the closet won’t be displayed on pages within your site. Archived content is stored away to be read another day, so that there’s always room for new, fresh pieces of content on your site.
