I'm hopping you can point me in the right direction.
I'm very interested in learning the fine details of building up a large authority blog successfully, not necessarily a product review or adsense monetised site, possibly a lifestyle magazine type site with lots of great content. I was wondering if joining The War Room might be useful for me specifically in this regard? I know my general way around wordpress and using child themes etc, but it is the structure of the blog itself and the format of a lengthy blog post that has me rather overwhelmed.
For example, although I will be outsourcing the writing of the content to niche specific writers who excel in certain subject areas, once I have the work delivered, it's knowing how best to format it for publishing on the blog. Knowing the best ways of researching the right keywords to base the content on in the first place, the right way to do SEO on a lengthy blog post, how many images to use, what to bold, when and how to link out, how to cloak affiliate links and probably a lot more stuff I don't even know I don't know. And all this on page requirement stuff is before I even get started on back links and all that other off page promotional stuff which will be necessary. You get the idea. I have some funds and the time but not sure where to get the best up to date current authority blog building info.
What would you suggest for someone who wants to become an authority blogging publishing machine?
Thanks for your time and any suggestions.
