---- 'Authority' status and the benefits it can bring.
- 9:29 pm on Oct 13, 2006
There is no way to become an 'authority' really.
Here's how I did it:
Learn the basics of HTML.
Build a site about something you know a lot about and love.
Keep the site simple, quick-loading, and easy to navigate.
Get a good, simple domain name that's easy to remember.
Spend thousands of hours making the site the best resource of its kind.
Add lots of quality, related links and ask for return links.
Publicize the site by being active on niche-related forums.
Where it's really appropriate, add links to it in Wikipedia.
Get a good digital camera and learn how to use it.
Keep improving the site every day.
Add some advertising to make your work pay off.
Learn what you can about SEO, but don't give yourself ulcers.
If you love your site and its focus, the work doesn't really feel like work.
