I have some questions about site style and design. When building out authority sites as apposed to mini affiliate sites, should I put up a landing page as the main domain that people can then delve further into the site with a blog on a sub domain, or a video pages off another sub domain? Or, would it be better to put up a blog in the main domain and just have just different categorizes for the different areas? Is there an SEO difference? Does a landing page convert better if you were to put a headline product on that to be sold, and just allow people to click through if they want more information?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Kevin

    For some sites it is more logical to have a site index arranged alphabetically. Use a site index where your audience is likely to know what they are looking for and you have clear and well known titles for your contents. Provide in-page alphabet menu (a through to z) so that people can jump to items starting with a particular letter. In a site index you can also include synonyms to cross reference the actual titles you are using with those that are also likely to be searched for.

      Thanks for the help.
      I probably will go with a landing page. I am pretty new at this and I think I can do multiple word press installs within different sub domains using Fantastico and use it to put a landing page on the main domain.
      Is it possible?
      I was thinking about using Optimize Press for the landing page.
      Is it worth the money?
      I am not a programmer, so I'm looking at something relatively easy to use, but still looks professional.

      Thanks,
      Kevin

    Yes, you can install multiple WP in your hosting. You can link to your multiple WP via 2 different approaches:

    1. sub-domain like you said.
    examples:
    wp-site1(dot)maindomain(dot)com

    2. sub directory
    www(dot)maindomain(dot)com/wp-site1

    I heard (no personal experience), #1 is good for unrelated content, since they are separated by sub-domain (not much juice pass through, which is not needed anyway)

    #2, is good for related conent since the main domain juice will be passed to the subdirectories.

    Anybody here, correct me if I am wrong.
