Theres a few things to consider before putting an articledirectory together. Do you want to make a niche directory catering to only certain subjects or do you want to cover every topic under the moon? This is where our first requirement comes into play.
Lets say youre into cars, then you would want your domain to be something like articlesaboutcarsthatgoreallyfast.*** or cartopicsthatiknowabout.*** or something like that. These are just examples Im using to illustratethe use ofnames. You probably would not want a domain name thatlong. If your going for the catch all you can use something with article in it, like articlesabouteverythingimaginable.*** Again just illistration purposes. The domain name you choose doesnt have to have the word article in it, mine doesnt. There are resources on the Internet which allow you to plug in keywords and it will spit out possible domain names from your keywords.
Now its time to look into getting a web host. I knowthere are literally thousands of web hosts out there and the decision can be daunting. Here
are a few things you want to look for in a web host.
* Able to host multiple domains under one account
* Customer service available through web, email, or phone
Search the Internet for web host reviews for moreinformation. There are plenty of resources with ranking systems for web hosts. You could also email some web site owners to see who they use and if they are happy with them.
Next the software to run our directory. I use ArticleDashboard. Article Dashboard is free software to run yourown directory. Im not saying this is the only software out there, Im just saying that its great and free, you cant beat that!
After following the directions for installing the directory its time to get some articles. Lots of article directories allow use of their articles as long as you keep all links thesame and give credit where its due. Just check each sites policy for exact rules relating to the use of their content. Another way is to read articles and contact the original author and invite them to write and send articles to yoursite. You can also sign up for sites that "push out articles" to you. This is a great way to get lots of articles quickly but it is also a good idea to get some original content.
