I posted a similar thread a few days ago, however I accidentally posted it in the IM Section, and it got deleted. Anyhow I have a few questions. I am building an AdSense (And Will soon Be Amazon as well) niche 'authority' site, and have been taking action. I've been doing SEO every day, for each new page I add, and have added my RSS feed to all 3 submitters, following a WSO. Now, I currently have 4 Pages + my Home page. Home page is 1,000 words, and other pages are 800-1000. I have targeted the main keyword I want (all the related keywords, are very low search volume of around 100 - 200) in all my Backlinking as my main keyword, and in my SEOPressor Keyword Density for my articles, however I am adding my other keywords in the different articles as well.
Now my main two questions:
1) Am I doing this right? As far as this WSO ('Penguin Ready it is supposed to be') says, I am, however I need to do press releases and link wheels as well.
2) How many more pages must I make? Also, I am using CTR Theme (No Pushdown ads, and ads are not active right now), and am Not sure how I should be doing navigation. Right now I am just putting all posts on the left bar and that is all.
One more question if you guys don't mind:
3) My Main keyword is receiving around 40,000 US Exact Searches Monthly. I thought it would probably be quite competitive, however I used SEOQuake, and they told me that almost all first page websites will be easy to overcome (usually under 10 back links, low PR of 0-2, and some have only one or two pages indexed), however a few of the top sites are authorities. For example, the number one site right now is an Amazon Product, a Youtube video used to be number one, and a Squidoo lens is up there as well.
Sorry if these are stupid questions, I'm very new to the SEO / Niche scene
