Is It Possible That Horizontal Content Websites Are The Wave Of The Future

by on Feb.20, 2010, under Special Notices

There is an unfamiliar trend that has been in progress on the web called horizontal content sites. This is the idea of building a site that can reign supreme over all search results. This is something that would be hard to do for a low budget site but for major businesses with deep pockets it could work.

A good example of a horizontal content website would be Britannica. But you are not confined to developing dictionary like websites to do this. This type of site can have old, present and new information about everything. A website that big could get overabundance of views and visitors. All that is missing is a bunch of authors constantly sending in article after article about every niche business.

Horizontal content web sites are deleloped with the use of long tail keywords. They use an algorithm that finds hundreds even thousands of these and create pages for each one. Then you can display a product or program to every page. This kind of goes against all the experts who say that keeping your web site focused on a certain niche is better. But I would not worry to much about your niche websites right about now. But it does make you wonder about how sort after the bottom end of search results will become. Since long tail keywords are best for new sites to get their foot in the door how can this effect their web traffic in the coming days?

You can believe that an authority site may make an attempt at this but there is a disadvantage. This will take lots of optimization and it would be very time consuming to optimize each page for page one views. Some pages could do better while others will never get seen. So there is a good chance that the large corporations that will attempt this will spend big bucks on generating backlinks to each in every page. Not something the average webmaster could attempt.

You might want to begin this on a small scale and make it a part of your seo before the fat cats dominate them all. The web will only become more busy and that means you need to step up your efforts. You do not have to have a site about all topics just those things that is related to your niche. Start with one and build on it until you own the whole topic. Make yourself the authority when visitors search for any information that similar to your website.

Since there are new niche ideas being created every day their is no need to be too concerned about horizontal content sites. No matter how much a webmaster can write it would be nearly impossible to report on everything known to mankind. There will always be a silver lining available for you if you keep your eyes on the latest trends.
