Google is a very frugal outfit. They may pay as much as $0.50 per thousand page views. I tried it on my site for 3 months and then just took all their ads off the site. It just wasn't worth the distraction to my visitors.

Their ads work very nicely if you have a site with 500K-1M visitors a month.

This second page would link to the same pages as the first one, just grouped a different way.


So, now you see why I said it'd be a lot of work.
I think a project that large would be better addressed by a database that has a web interface, like Filemaker or Bento, rather than a spreadsheet. That way you could bring up all the sailboats vs motorboats, the thruhull replacements, the rigging jobs, the boats built between a year range that are between x and y feet long. It might be more than you want to do for the website, but a database like that is not only faster to develop but also has other personal uses.



The sea is always beautiful, sometimes mysterious and, on occasions, frighteningly powerful.
