    Do you know how you are going to search and retrieve the urls? You need to know that before you try to put anything in a database.

    URLs

    Yes I know the URL's. If I find more sites I can add them later.

    No. What I mean is what language are you going to use to perform the search to find your "idea words" and then extract them to record their url in a database. You have two separate tasks. One requiring a language and one requiring a database. I don't know what language you would use.

    Unhappy Got it..

    As I said I am new to this. I know how to use Access and that is about it. I know some HTML, but I would have to say the easiest. I am a fast learner.

    I am looking for directions. I can do the work just need someone to steer me right.


    Thanks and sorry for the misunderstanding.

    We have to find a sight for you to find the right language that can work with a database you can afford. It may not be a database at all but just a file with a list of urls.

    It might be worthwhile to check out some .alt sites on web topics and look for ideas.
