    Alright, so some of you might have remembered about how google deleted my amazon blogs that were earning me some money a few months ago. It was then that I decided that I would start an actual site with hosting and target all my keywords. I decided that I would get a brandable domain (which I have) and each post/page would target 1 keyword that had 1-5k searches a month.

    If my site is going to have reviews about all sorts of products that range from books to electronics, would I still be able to rank each individual page for its keyword? Would it be a good idea to have this massive site with all sorts of articles that are completely different niches but all reviews?

    If the above is workable, how would you suggest I organize the nav bar? So far I just have general categories with a drop down but once I hit a few hundred articles, this could look messy.

    Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

    It's doable.

    Amazon.com

    Wayfair.com

    I base most of my menu designs off amazon. Very intuitive, browser friendly and dynamic (sick image placement IMO).

    You probably just take a look at Amazon and organize similar to their categories.. don't go crazy though. Also, I don't think it's a big deal to have a wide variety of niches.. you should be fine ranking for individual keywords.. Good luck!

    Ohhh I really like the suggestion of mimicking amazon for an amazon authority site! What would you suggest I place for anchor text to the main URL? or should I just focus my SEO on each individual post?

    I think you should focus more on individual keywords to bank on less competitive keywords and as you do so.. slowly backlink for the authority keyword. As for what you should use for the authority keyword(s) .. I'm not too sure.. do some keyword research and see what's worth going after. :)

    That is what I have been doing. Each post is focused on a keyword with usually 1-2k exact searches a month.

    Antichrist, I've been thinking of doing pretty much the same thing lately. That or breaking the niches up into separate sites. Almost building sort of a "brand" I guess you could say, something that looks a bit more trustworthy to people then a simple static HTML 1-3 page site like so many people do for affiliate stuff.
