Hey you sexy BH people! :ranger: Got a question..kinda.. How is the best way to grow a site to become authority website. Goal is to do it as quick as possible! My Example: I have 2 websites (3-5 months old) to which i post almost daily 1-2 articles (500-700 words total). I ping the posts and submit the feeds too proper sites. I have the sitemaps submitted to GWT. Also i have those Google news widgets that constantly update + RSS poster that syndicates related content. I'd say those could be called ACTIVE websites..right? So why google takes like 4-7 days too index my posts/pages? Next question is at what point Google says: "OK..looks like this site is a serious one..." and push it up in rankings and give it ranking power. I mean what does it have to have: 1 - Certain number of words/articles? 2 - Certain number of backlinks? 3- Certain number of social signals? 4 - Combo of the above - but are there any real numbers? Are there any people that recently got/grew their own authority website? Appreciate the input and REP will be added!
