Let's say you pretty much copy what successful authority sites do - write very informative, helpful and valuable long article on a specific topic, have a cool title with the potential to go viral ('7 surprising lies that .....', you get the point), you also have a very nice theme and logo, author about page with photo, the whole deal. How do those sites then explode and start getting traffic? Press releases? Paid facebook posts? Does anyone have any experience and willing to share what the best 'method' to kick-start a good and valuable website is in their experience? We are assuming a general niche many people will be interested in, like losing weight, cooking, etc.
