    I have recently begun my venture into making an authority site. I was tired of all my light micro niche sites being washed away from updates.

    The past 2 weeks I have been writing an article a day based on keywords with 100-400 exact searches per month. I was wondering if this was a viable way to make an authority site compared to focusing on just a few bigger keywords.

    Another question I have with this is what about seo. For 5 of my keywords I am ranked in the 9th, and 10th position without any backlinks, should I continue to write articles and hope that my constant updates will build my authority, and eventually my pages will be ranked without seo, or should I try some light seo, and not try to over do it.

    After two weeks I have yet to find a constant stream of visitors, but I'm hoping that will come soon.

    Thanks, and if my site turns out to be even relatively successful I'll be sure to write a guide on it here.

    Yes it works, but if you can ramp up your article writing to 10 a day you'll see the visitors come faster.

    I have a couple guest blog sites based on this model and after a few months the traffic is significant. I also bookmark posts.

    Having daily articles posted on your website is going to help a lot,but you'll definately need Seo to hit the high traffic keywords.Creating a safe link profile for your website is also going to help in case some competitor decides to do negative seo.
    Also,you should think about outsourcing the content writing,its eating a lot of valuable time ;)

    Good luck!

    I have thought of outsourcing, and I have a few smaller sites that I'm currently doing seo campaigns on, so when those start making money ill start using that money to outsource content
