OK, so all is cool - I have a website with About and Privacy Policy pages and just in the middle of writing my first 'epic' post.

'Epic' because it will be about 5000 words and 'epic' because.. well.. it's epic!

It's a post based on Brian Dean's idea of 'skyscraper' posts where you basically produce a 'list post' that is longer than any other list.

Let's say someone has produced a post about WA and it's title is "The 10 Best Things About WA"

To be a skyscraper post you have to write one titled "The Top 51 Things About WA"

Now, all you have to do is write 50-100 words about each entry and you've got a a number of things working for you:

  1. You have a post that contains a huge number of long tail keywords thus will feature on many conducted searches
  2. You have greater chances to include text/image links to your affiliate
  3. You come out as more 'authorative'/'expert' simply because you've gone deeper into the subject.

Well, gotta get on back

5000 words is pretty amazing, good luck. Do also write a short summary of your content, so that the users who don't want to read long blogs will be helped with the short summary.
