First I know it does take time, but what is actually involved to build an authority site around a niche?
1. Does having good quality content and a massive array of backlinks help with ranking them for all keywords?
2. How do you backlink specific topics within your site, is it similiar to squidoo and hubpages where you build under them creating pyramids and linkwheels or what have you?
3. I know that backlinking the mainpage is important, but what's the ratio of backlinks needed to maintain a high PR page, and website?
