    Hi there!
    I am Building a "authority site". I know its not authority until it becomes authority, but I will work on it to become one.


    What I have done so far:

    - Purchased a nice domain name .com of course.
    - Place an order for 30 x 500+ words "HQ" articles for 13 keywords with 0.5 - 1% density.
    - Set up hosting for the domain name

    The good thing is that I have manage to make a deal with the content writer to inter links the articles for on-page SEO. Its easier for me so I don't need to find a way to insert a few words and in the same time make it to flow with the content. I have give instructions to make 1-3 inner links per article so it look more natural(I don't want every article to have the same number or links).

    What I will do next:

    - I am currently looking for a good WordPress theme.

    - What I will do for off-page SEO:

    - I will build backlinks slowly as possible, with HIGH anchor diversity. I will not build backlinks until the site is settled down, probably I will wait for 30 days to pass, before I start doing SEO.

    - I will pay for traffic for the first 2-3 months, nothing special maybe 50-100 a day. I need it to build backlinks, you can't just build backlinks and have no traffic(I believe Google will notice that especially if you are planing to use Google analytics)

    - I will pay for mix social signals with slow drip 5-10 a day.

    Good luck mate, I would recommend the genesis framework with a child theme because it will load super quick and has a clean code.

    Good luck and as already stated before, genesis is a very clean and fast framework. I'd suggest the dynamik child theme to make your life much easier.

    Good luck to you also!
    Just take it easy, you don't wanna rush it and make a mistake that you can't get back from.

    If I would be building an authority site I would avoid link building and focus on quality content. Good luck on your journey.
