    I don't know if this would work, or even how useful it would be but see what you think anyway.

    If i were to make a main site that i wanted to be an authority. would it work if i made up a niche lets say focused on a made up sport called "walttball" where there are a total of 5 results in google. then create a few articles / backlinks etc. maybe even a couple more sites linking to the main site to add credibility.

    do you think this would quickly achieve authority site status and would it be useful to, over time change the focus of the site and migrate it to something useful or just use it to promote other sites i might have. Its half an idea at the moment , think it could be useful ?

    No, an 'authority' is a potentially misleading term. Yes, it would be an authority in the 'niche' but has no weight.

    It's like you need a strong man for something and you choose a 5 year old who is the strongest in their class at school. Yes, they are useful (strong) within their niche, but when you take them out of their nich they are useless.

    same with your scenario.

    ahh well, thanks anyway.

    I still think there might be some mileage in the above idea tho, there are big gaps all over the net where something like this could work, but im not sure what for or how it could be used. there is no way google can determine if something is actually true, if its done right, you could probably fool people too. lol as i said, i just dont know what use it might be yet.

    Authority sites are where you want to go big or go home--- Focussing on a very specific niche is just a waste of time/effort. Letting it gain klout is a good idea-- But you'd be putting in the same amount of work either way.

    I am sorry dude but it will not work. and it will not be effective for what you are trying to do.
