This question is Adsense related as I need a simple CMS where I can place adsense ads anywhere.

I have spent 2 weeks searching and looking for a simple modern looking CMS that is SEO and has the ability to add Adsense just about anywhere.

I want to create a very simple site, no forum, no guestbook, no user registration etc etc etc.

Just a website with a cool menu, modern good looking templates and maybe a simple photo gallery (Optional)

And the CMS needs to be free, I want to start a new site and I don't know if it will pay off, therefore I need it top be free, I have looked at most of the CMS out there, most are complex to learn and have way too many features or some of them just look BAD!

Thank you.

Any particular reason why do you feel you need a CMS?

If you do not require a great deal of user-interaction or any specific reason to have a database, then hand coding the site using templates might be a better option. That will give you full control over AdSense placement.

Just a website with a cool menu, modern good looking templates and maybe a simple photo gallery (Optional)

For that you don't require a CMS.

I have looked at most of the CMS out there, most are complex to learn and have way too many features or some of them just look BAD!

If you do go that route, bear in mind that any CMS will require tailoring to make it work the way that you need. You have to weigh that up against the work involved in creating a static site with the flexibilty for your AdSense ad placement.

I have handcoded a couple of sites, creating my own sort of template, were I can move my adsense ads between the major hotspots, works great but takes a long time to design setup etc etc.

I wanted a very simple CMS that is SEO and is flexible with Adsense, I have writen most of the content for the new site I just want to paste it into a CMS generate the site and then experiment with the Adsense colors placement etc etc.

Thank you!

You can try Joomla! better than Mambo jumbo.

You can set the number of page impression you want for Adsense and rotate it with other Ads like Amazon for example.

I'm just updating an old HTML site to Joomla and I must say it's very flexible. I use a module approach to placing Ads.

I also use a well known SEF script to keep the urls exactly as they are indexed. So G will still like them and not throw any indexing wobblies.

No, they have the capacity to carry very big projects. There are many small, simple sites using these systems, using as many or as few of the modules and components as required. Sites are as advanced and complicated as the Webmaster wants to make them.

We have several Joomla! sites with two or three pages, and several more with hundreds/thousands of pages.

They do both take some getting used to, and there's quite a bit to understand, but Joomla! has the best community support and is extremely flexible, enabling your project to grow. And you can have a fresh new look at the touch of a button, without having to worry about the effect on your content ;)

[opensourcecms.com...]
[cmsmatrix.org...]

Take a look at the above links to get and idea what is out there the world. I believe Open Source CMS had a thread a couple of weeks ago about a lite type of CMS.

I would think any CMS will have a level of complexity out of the box. Untill you get the hang of what is going on. I use Postnuke for a site and to create a custom template that will change with the area of the site you are on (ie diffrent topics or modules)only takes a few minutes to ad the PN specific tags to your html template. To me it couldn't get any easier but for someone just starting out might not see it that way.
But the best way is narrow down your options and install a few of them on your server and take them for a test drive.

Check out Drupal [drupal.org...] and the 'alias' plugin. Drupal is amazing, it's free and open source. There are some excellent themes freely available.

For simple sites such as you are describing I find that I just take an off the shelf theme, disable the 'login/signup' box and disable signups, and modify it visually to suit. The 'alias' module allows you to create custom url paths to pages ie /about /contact-us /widgets/blue /widgets/green or whatever you please =)

Try Nukedit (http://www.nukedit.com/) - I haveused it a lot, nice and simple and easy, but still adaptable.

I recommend looking into weblog software apps--they have evolved into mini-CMS systems. I use Wordpress. With it's many plugins and theme choices you can design AdSense into the header, footer, sidebar, etc.; as well as in posts. Simple to install and vastly expandable, it just turned v2.0.

Once I learned how to use mambo aka joomla I never hand code anymore, I mean don't use frontpage/dreamweaver anymore. It's time saver, just find or make a nice template then everything is easy from there, you can add content anywhere, anytime.

I guess I'm just too old to be happy about editing with online forms, except for e-mails and forum posts. :-)

Try Mambo. It's free. It has excellent SEO features. Easy installation, easy to modify. A bit of editing, and you can start putting some ads on the left/right navigation or inside the content.

But if all you need was something very simple, may be you should build it by yourself. Start by downloading a nice template.

EFV, you're never too old ;) It'd save you heaps of time, and is easily updateable from anywhere you might happen to be at the time!

Mambo/Joomla/Limbo will work but you'll need to roll up your sleeves and tinker with some PHP and fix some of their code to make in a better tool as far as SEO goes, they were rather naive in that dept. when building that tool IMO

I have to deal with the French "SPIP" CMS of the company I start working for. It gives me a lot of headaches when it comes to SEO: urls with & and?, no folder hierarchy, difficult to get the titles between H1 tags and so on.

Anyobdy has an idea how to enhance this SPIP thing in order to be Google-friendly?

The site is an authority site in its domain, has 2.000 unique content pages, more than thousand inbound links from quality sites, and it gets no more than.... 500 uniques a day!

Of course, nothing beats manual SEO optimization.

Still, Mambo is one popular CMS. Which means anytime you need to add/modify something you'll get a lot of help from the Mambo forum. Lots of mods and patches are available, some of them for SEO.

Thanks, but I've worked with content-management systems, and I have yet to find one that I've liked. (And I'm skeptical about the time-saving aspect, since nearly all of my work time is spent on research, writing, and editing, not on the technical aspects of publishing and maintaining the site.)

I'm sure that a CMS is useful for many publishers, especially those who have staff, rely on outside contributors, run a lot of news stories, etc. But I'm inclined to think that it's overkill for a publisher of mostly "evergreen" content that can be written and updated with traditional tools and an ftp client.

I use Plone (www.plone.org). It supports search engine friendly urls and you can put ads anywhere you like.

There's one exception: putting ads inside your content block is easy in handcrafted HTML, but may give headaches with a CMS.
