The first step is to select a template for
the site from the Source Files tab by clicking the Browse link as shown below.
The software ships with six different templates and the first template includes
different color variations which you can select by clicking the Color Style
drop down box.
It would be better if you prepare the
articles which you have to include on the site in Text format before proceeding
further as it will simplify the entire process. I noticed that if one article
is selected then all the articles inside the folder will be added to the
Article Lists box as shown in Figure 1.

Finally, you need to specify the location
of output folder where the site pages will be placed. You should note that
software creates each site locally before it automatically uploads them to the
As you will observe, each site which you
create using the software will be saved as a project. Hence, even if you want
to update the site at a later point of time, you just need to open the relevant
project and work on it by adding additional articles.
The next step is to provide the Meta name,
Meta description and Meta keywords by clicking Site Info tab for search engine
optimization purpose as shown in Figure 2. You can also easily monetize the
site using Google Adsense, Amazon and Clickbank affiliate programs.

As you can see from the above screenshot,
it is possible to adjust the position of adsense ads very easily. You can
either directly place them below the title or can wrap it along the content.
The software also provides an ability to
display either a random article or site map on the home page. It also includes
options for displaying menus, banners and links. You can easily exchange links
with other sites by simply adding the new link and uploading the updated site
to the server. Moreover, you can also import articles from ezinearticles.com
and display an image either on the sidebar or above article title in addition
to a customized header.
The software also generates a privacy
policy page, contact page and automatically submits your site feed to a RSS
feed site, which I hope can bring in more traffic to your site. The product
also includes built-in support for youtube videos, google analytics, adsense
clicklock, adsense channels and Eds tracker code.
After going through the above mentioned
steps, you should locally create the site by clicking Create Site link. Once
you have finished creating the site, you need to upload the site files to the
server by providing the relevant credentials by selecting FTP Upload tab.

As you can see from the above screenshot,
the software displays the progress of each action and a message box will be
displayed at the end of the whole process. You can now navigate to the website
to which you have uploaded the files.
The product not only enables you to create
sites quickly but also helps you to promote them by submitting the sitemap to
popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask and Bing. I was able to
all sites except MSN. I would suggest the vendor to integrate social
bookmarking sites in the next version of the product as it will help to
generate backlinks for the sites you have created.
I very much liked the functionality of the
product as I only need to populate articles and provide few options as
discussed above. The software does the rest of the painful job of site creation
automatically. I feel that if I had not used the software then it will take
minimum of seven days to create a site from scratch.
The software ships with five high CTR
premium templates. However, you can also use your own template by using the
code tokens. I am sure that the software will help you to earn more revenue if
you can correctly tap into high paying niches and by creating unique keyword
I noticed that the software is not only
flexible but also works very fast and is a huge time saver. Moreover, the
vendor provides excellent support directly through e-mail and also provides
tips to monetize and improve your site in PDF format. You have to place a
request to the vendor after the purchase of Site2Traffic in order to access the
PDF file. However, a detailed comprehensive documentation file is included with
the download package which will help you to get start with the software
I highly recommend Site2Traffic if you would like to build
search engine friendly web sites rapidly and in a minimum amount of time by
including all the features of a dynamic site.
