The days of building static web sites are dead. The days of building sites by hand are dead. The future lies in continually-updated web sites that weave together both pre-written articles and user-generated content.

At http://www.RefreshArticles.com, cutting-edge PHP scripts are busy building a content-rich site of quality articles automatically. Already over 2,000 articles have been auto-categorized and auto-added to the site by the super-smart scripts.
Neil Shearing, owner of http://www.RefreshArticles.com reported: "The days of building static web sites are dead. The days of building sites by hand are dead. The future lies in continually-updated web sites that weave together both pre-written articles and user-generated content." He added, "The future can be seen at the pioneering article site, where AI has been harnessed and the site is growing every 30 minutes, automatically!"
Most webmasters still laboriously build a site one page at a time, even with sophisticated web-editors. They then upload the sites and leave them, forever, to gather digital dust. The search engines do not favor such web sites, whose content almost never changes.
But at RefreshArticles.com the webmaster is almost totally removed from the site building process. Instead, the site is built by "smart" PHP scripts which auto-categorize and auto-add articles to the website.
Once the articles are uploaded to a hidden part of the website (by a human), the scripts will automatically assign one or more categories to them and then publish one every 30 minutes to the live website. The action is constantly "buzzing" as more articles are added, the homepage and sitemaps are frequently updated and visitors have more and more searchable content to read and enjoy.
The search engines love indexing this continually-expanding site, and their indexing bots crawl all over it. In the first twelve days of November, the site saw 12,623 hits by Googlebot as it crawled the site extensively. Not bad for a brand new site. Neil Shearing says, "Googlebot just goes crazy for this website. When those spider-visited pages are shown in the main Google index, we hope to see a deluge of traffic."
The only maintenance the website needs is "feeding" it uncategorized articles by the human. The uploads could be as infrequent as once per month or less. Everything else is done by the AI scripts.
Even visitors have a role to play in the site-building process. Visitors are asked for their comments using an innovative new comments area at the bottom of every article. New comments are added at the end of the articles, resulting in updated web pages... which will keep the search engine spiders coming back to re-index the new comments.
The site only publishes quality articles purchased from several different services and does not accept user submitted articles which can sometimes be of low quality or even machine generated thereby filling sites with poor content. By using only articles from a few, select, paid resources, the quality of the articles at http://www.RefreshArticles.com is kept at a very high level.
This article directory has a collection of high quality articles compiled from paid sources, on a wide variety of topics including health, self-development and business promotion. The articles refresh themselves with the addition of comments submitted by the visitors. You are invited to visit the site and see this novel experiment in action at http://www.refresharticles.com
