Best method for organizing & tracking multiple sites?

Does anyone have a good method to organize and track multiple affiliate websites? I am wondering about hard disk directory structures, email folders, spreadsheets, or some sort of software to keep track of pertinent information such as passwords, hosting, affiliate programs for each site, urls, content, source files, rankings, earnings, backups, etc -- basically everything.

Something simple to maintain, but effective.
Thanks, SuzyG

Hi Suzy,
Well for some of that I use roboform or keypass.
It keeps track of passwords and URL's.
I have separate folders in my docs for each affiliate program or category and I keep spreadsheets for earnings etc..

There are other programs you can get as well..
You really need to trust them with your passwords etc though...
For Eg: http://www.affiliatesorganizer.com/

I simply have a gmail account were I forward all confirmation emails too, then I sort them into folders.

I also use this account as storage of ebooks, reports, PLR, Articals, and pictures that I have bought. So every thing is backed up even if my PC crashes.

I also use spreadsheets to track my sites.

I create one where I list my page title, keyword, tt score, backlinks built,

I keep another one where I keep track of every article I write, and what article directories/ websites, I have posted them on.

Keep a separate email adress for each of your websites, as well as different parts of each site.

each website I keep 4 different emails.

1 all affiliate programs I am promoting
2 customer support
3 email list replies/ questions
4 newsletters of other sites within the niche. this way I keep up with what others are doing within the niche, as well as getting great tips to look into using for my own sites.

A simple spreadsheet is usually sufficient - even using something like Google Docs so you can keep it online for ready access.

You have to watch that systems for organizing things dont become a big overhead in themselves, defeating the purpose!

Thanks so much for all the replies. I am now using Roboform and love it. I use a spreadsheet, but am considering Affiliate Organizer too. It looks comprehensive.
