    Ok. My site has been growing quite a bit recently and it seems that due to a lack of initial planning...(ya, I'm an idiot) the articles are spread out with links here and there and everywhere.

    In an effort to clean things up and keep the menu/navigation simpler, I'd like to offer only 3 or four main links off the home page, and then branch out from there. The problem is that the site is .... well.... it's kind of different. It a humour-based site with absolutely no common theme between the articles. They're just random thoughts that I've been writing over the last few months that now exceed over 40 pages! Hey, it's not that bad. I get over 1,000 unique visitors a day! I just wish I could actually make money off it.

    Anyway, I blather on. If you have a knack for organizing the unorganizable (phew, *that's* a mouthfull!) please feel free to suggest a method or system that could help. The site is http://www.gimmeabuck.com

    Thanks in advance,
    Henri Straforelli

    Yikes, 1,000 uniques a day? You ought to be making a couple hundred bucks a month from that I'd imagine...

    As for organization...if you have dates on them that might be a good idea...can't go wrong organizing them by date!

    Thanks for the org suggestion DLG_1 and TWCommish.

    I use valueclick as my ad people, but they pay on a click-thru basis. Unfortunately, not many people seem to be clicking thru! I have a .35% click thru ratio right now, which isn't so good. Every time I try to apply to flycast they deny me. Apparently the content of my site isn't up to snuff for them.

    Anyway, I'll consider the two options you guys gave me. Thanks a lot.

    Are you following the PHP/MySQL series? That might be the way to go. It would enable easy searching, multiple views and organization.
