I keep hearing about website authority, and I can assume it in some cases, such as Wikipedia, Amazon etc. But how do I get authority, or anyone else, because I keep hearing of its importance.

    By building a website that.

    People like
    People talk about
    People remember
    People return to
    People share online
    People share offline
    People trust
    People link to

    Well that's my opinion.

    I think Kevin Maguire pretty much summed it up. I will add that an authority site tends to have a high PR and visitors search for the domain name instead of just keywords.
    I also see people mentioning that an authority site needs to have lots and lots of content; however, I disagree. A site with thousands of pages is just that - a site with thousands of pages.
    If you start a news site, then yes, lots of content is needed but an authority site can have a few pages, if everything a user wants to know about the niche is covered in such great detail on the site and the site becomes the go to one for people looking for information.

    Like this:

    They build up the domain/brand.

    Notice the keywords searched on Google are the brand. When someone is interested in a site they search the brand keywords (not EMD keywords).

    The way a webmaster does the same for their own site is to create useful web pages that the traffic wants, for instance I don't search for internet marketing forum I search for warrior forum, because I know this is a very active forum. Now multiply similar experiences times thousands of unique traffic & you get an authority site.

    Links - 1st priority.
    Content & the rest - 2nd priority.
