    So I have decided to branch off from my usual affiliate projects and am aiming to create a giant authority site.

    My site already has about 80 articles with the majority of them written by me. What I was thinking is that I would get some friends to rewrite articles from popular sites that are receiving huge traffic. Will this work to skyrocket my traffic?

    Any advice would be appreciated. I mainly focus on 10-20 page affiliate sites so this is the first time I am going after something bigger. Thanks!

    It would depend on how you rank for the long tails, and in order to rank without having to do SEO, you will need to have a good Domain authority. If the articles are going to be relatively the same as the ones you're copying, and targeting the same keywords, you will need to have a better domain authority or have better SEO done in order to out rank the originals.

    Anyone else? or does it really just come down to domain authority?
