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.
