    I am starting a few massive authority sites. I have had some pretty big ones but this one (and many more to come) is going to have well over 100 pages within the first month and then drip fed 10-20 each and every month. What do you guys suggest do? I am already set on Wordpress obviously. But for the homepage layout...

    Should I use some sort of magazine theme? Should my latest posts be put on the homepage like a blog or should it be more of a classic website style? Let me know your suggestions!

    definately a blog style if you are going to add 20 articles each month.

    More of a classic website layout...you can keep a blog for recent posts or if you are just adding updates.

    The main meat of your content should be laid out in menus and each sub-section of that particular topic should be in a drop down but kept within the same main topic. That way your authority site will stay organised and each menu in itself builds up authority by itself

    Exactly what I was thinking of. Should I like my menu links to the designated category of the website or a post containing that category index?

    I usually keep posts and pages separate. Hence why I would have the meat of your website to be listed in links across the top of the website, each of these with sub menus of articles that complete that section(although expandable as you like)

    My posts I would treat like a blog. Have as many categories as you like and obviously you can put each post in several categories. I usually leave between 4 and 8 posts on my front page so there is some eye candy for visitors to look at before they get into the main website.

    Hey bro, I no this isn't about the post layout I just wanted to say some quick things I started up 2 massive AS sites about 8 months ago I started them from a new domain that wasn't too smart but I had around 200 articles on there at first and was adding 10-20 articles a month I was making nothing at all like 50p a day but after like an extra 4 months I've started making around £15 a day and still rising :)
    anyway good luck mate and I agree with that duffers says also

    In the niche you are about to enter, how many of the top 10 sites on Google are Wordpress sites?

    Not many I'll bet

    Wordpress is not an obvious choice for authority site building
