CMS (Content Management Systems)
A content management system (CMS) is a term commonly used to refer to blog and website applications that comprise of a GUI user interface and a database which holds the content. PHP is often used to determine how the content is retrieved from the database and displayed on the website and the administrative back-end.
Their appeal lies in ease of use and maintenance. These systems are typically easier for the non-technically savvy to add and update content.
They tend to be flexible allowing the administrator to upload "themes" and "style sheets" that control how the content is displayed to the visitors of the website.
In the early years of Theme Zoom there were few content management systems that provided enough structural flexibility to allow for Website Silo Architecture, and CMS type systems were farily new.
In 2006, we built Silo Publisher (with Jeff Mandrake) as an alternative to the early lack of structural flexibility within most CMS systems of the day.
Today, in 2011, we are creating Network Empire, which is a fully integrated Perpetual Keyword Machine that integrates VOMA (vertical online market analysis), keyword research, website silo architecture, and inbound link building syndication an tracking metrics.
