When online business owners talk about Authority they are referring to, in general, how large a following and how well known you (or your business) are in a niche.

You will hear the phrase “build your authority” countless times in the online business world and it’s one of the most important part of your business when you are first starting out.

Becoming an authority in the eyes of your target audience means that when they have a question, you (or your website) is where they turn for the answer.  It means when people are referring and recommending people to websites in your niche you are mentioned.

Thats what Authority means in the online world.
