Hi, Have been reading these forums on and off over the last few motnhs and woudl like to create an authority website for a niche I feel has potential (my first site). - Have narrowed the wordpress theme I intend to use down to a choice of 2. - Have created about 40 titles that I require articles to be written for. - Current negotiating with a writer to do all 40 articles minimum 500 words per article. - Planning on doing the website work myself with the assistance of a few friends who have a bit more experience. - Once the website is up I am planning to apply for an amazon affiliate account (don't currently have one). - Looking to release 30 articles all at once and then release the rest and get an extra 20/30 and relase a few a week. - What would be the next step - I would like to get traffic to the site via search engine I am struggling where to start with SEO (don't mind doing the work and learning) but what programs are worth investing in? - Should each of the articles contain key words ? - What is the best method of searching for the key words ? If someone could provide some direction it would be brilliant, I am confident I can make this work just a bit of assistance getting it off the ground.
