Topical Authority Maps
What to write about. What questions to answer.
When you cover a topic more thoroughly, completely and conclusively that your competitors, Google can decide you're the Topical Authority on a topic and give your website preferential treatment. Topical Authority doesn't run in real-time, it's not part of Google's real-time algorithm, it is checked and updated during Core Algorithm updates. So it's a race against time to have the best, most comprehensive content out there before the next update! Once you're up there, pretty much everything you publish ranks well, and so long as no-one else writes more and better than you, you'll still be there after the next update.
Our Topical Authority Services
Traditional SEO is one way of ranking highly, but if you don't have the budget for on-going backlink building, you'll struggle to rank well in a competitive arena. This is where becoming a Topical Authority can make the difference.
Why Be a Topical Authority?
If your website covers every topic your clientele could want to know about, and explains it all in a clear, informative and comprehensive way, Google can consider you to be a Topical Authority in your area. When that happens, pretty much everything you write about ranks well, even if you don't have the Domain Strength to back it up.
That means you can appear in the top of the search results alongside the big, national brand names, without spending the equivalent budget needed to rank the traditional way!
