How to Create Your Own Data Source File?

Summary

Creating list from scratch

The most effective MPG projects are using a lot of unique data that users manually upload. In the beginning you may have a simple starter CSV file where you keep data from which MPG will generate content but overtime you may easily add additional data to it and keep expanding your pages with more unique useful information for the best organic rankings.

Location Pages

Getting list off internet

If you are generating location pages, it is often enough to Google the list of your desired data sets and download what’s available. For example, if you need cities in Australia, simply Googling “Australia cities CSV” returns many usable free resources to get started with. You can combine data from multiple resources for the most effective database, using Excel or Google Sheets (free). Some of the most effective location pages would use unique images and Maps in the generated pages. Though generating relative images is quite complicated, generating Maps requires only latitude and longitude and Google API account.

Using MPG Library

You can also import one of our location templates. Once you import a Template, you can Download the source file and make necessary modifications.

Creating list from scratch

You can of course simply type out your list of locations if you have that data. Export as CSV and load into MPG.

Partner Pages

Partner type of pages are useful when you need to create an individual page for each and every client or partner that you have. Let’s say that you have a number of vendors which work with your organization. Generating a page for each of your partners is fast and easy. Type out a list of your your partners in Excel or Google Sheets or other spreadsheet program and save as CSV. Upload to MPG project and follow the instructions on the page to setup your partner pages.

Other Source Files

You may also always find relative data source files to your industry online or through private catalogs to form your MPG project from. Another good way to get a data file is to use web scraping services. One of our clients has created dozens of super successful websites by simply scraping sites and creating  entire industry specific portals. As an example, he scraped a government website which listed all lawyers in the region and generated unique page for each and every lawyer there and their bio. As you may know, legal ads are extremely expensive and running ads on those pages has gained user a lot of success in the niche.
