In the days of everyone believing that it takes months on end (if not a full year) to gain any authority for a site.... What do you think is the most efficient and fastest method(s) for a site to gain authority? I mean REAL authority, not a stat of some BS metric that fools drool over. I mean like when true longtails rank with no links because the site has REAL authority. Just interested in hearing some opinions on this from some others. I already do plenty of stuff myself and have some decent success on some larger sites. Just trying to lower the timeframe even more. Thanks for your input and good luck to you.
