    I've got a few sites up and running, but was looking at having a whole web of them on different properties, different hosts, etc. I'm sure a lot of blackhat stuff is throwaway - you set it up and ignore it. I'm interested in tracking my white hat sites. I want a zoo of them - a variety that requires different care and feeding.

    How do YOU keep track of all your sites? What I was thinking I might need to track:

    • Type of site (web 2.0, self hosted wp, Wordpress, etc)
    • Access details
    • Where is IP registered
    • Type of content (autoblog, manual postings)
    • Keywords (per page and per site?)
    • Notes (for what I did to it - which backlink services)

    Note that I'm posting this in white hat SEO - only because I'd want to invest in these sites and keep MOST of them white hat. But I'm sure a few blackhat sites will be worth building up.

    I have just started using oneNote 2010, if you don't know it its like a digital notepad, Its pretty cool because you can set it to sync to multiple computers/locations.

    I use a spreadsheet.
    Site Name /Keyword Targeted/host/username/password/nameserver/wordpress password/work done
    Work done = YES if site is complete. Or any notes I need like "Waiting for articles", etc.

    I use online spreadsheets, and also a form filler/password tool like LastPass is really helpful

    Options:

    a) Use Evernote to keep in sync all your devices and notes, passwords etc for all your sites

    b) Use an spreadsheet in combo with Dropbox to keep one version synced.

    I second onenote or evernote, all can be uploaded to the cloud and shared between computers, take screen clippings from right within the tool.
    Best part is if you ever need to give someone some info you can just print to pdf and send it to them.
