Introduction: Topical website?

In the spirit of full disclosure, I’m writing this post, with this title, because a topical mapping tool (AlsoAsked) claims this is something that people search for.

And while I’m a firm believer that there are no bad questions, that people ask this question indicates to me there is a misunderstanding of what “topical authority” is.

Topical website = topical authority?

The way the title question is worded implies that “a topical website” is a thing, but isn’t every website a topical website? Isn’t every website about something? About one or more topics?

Is the question really “what is topical authority?”

I think so, and since I’ve already written a post on that topic, rather than repeat myself here, below is a link to that post.
