    For instance:

    My site is about forks. So, I do reviews about different types of forks and brands.

    Brands: red fork, blue fork, black fork.

    Different types: Meat fork, egg fork, fruit fork.

    *Note that my domain is ---> meatforkguide.com

    This is how i silo them:

    • meatforkguide.com/fruitfork(fork type)/bluefork(brand)/forknamereview
    • meatforkguide.com/fruitfork(fork type)/redfork(brand)/forknamereview
    • meatforkguide.com/fruitfork(fork type)/blackfork(brand)/forknamereview
    • meatforkguide.com/eggtfork(fork type)/bluefork(brand)/forknamereview
    • meatforkguide.com/eggtfork(fork type)/redfork(brand)/forknamereview
    • meatforkguide.com/eggfork(fork type)/blackfork(brand)/forknamereview
    • meatforkguide.com/meatfork(fork type)/bluefork(brand)/forknamereview
    • meatforkguide.com/meatfork(fork type)/redfork(brand)/forknamereview
    • My questions:
    1- Since my domain name is already a type of fork (meatforkguide.com), when I sort it again by the type of fork (meatfork) and separate it by product name (forknamereview) Google will not understand the URL as SPAM (it will repeat the keyword 3x )?

    2- In addition to linking on the Menu, do I need to link to the product review in the brand pages?

    i.e:

    On the EGGFORK page I talk a little about the brand and a little about each product. Right?

    But here I link directly to the product review link or direct to Amazon?

    I hope you did not get too confused.

    Algo? Let's play with you.

    You should use domain which is not an exact type of fork and more like a brand name about the niche, this way you will solve this problem.

    2- In addition to linking on the Menu, do I need to link to the product review in the brand pages?

    i.e:

    I lost you a bit but I will just explain you how I do it and it kinda works and also make sense.
    If I got it right ur site is something like domain.com/eggfork/bluefork/fork123 for example.
    So on the homepage you link to all the fork types like eggfork,meatfork,fruitfork.
    I just do it by writing a small paragraph about each and linking to them and also linking to them from the menu.

    Then on the next level of the silo, ie "eggfork", you write about eggfork.
    What I do on this page is using 2k-3k words article trying to rank kw like "best eggfork" and also linking to my internal pages of this silo for example "domain.com/eggfork/bluefork/fork123".

    Then on the next level of the silo will do exactly the same I did on eggfork for bluefork.

    Then on the next level of the silo, which is the specifc product review will just use 1k words article about the kw.

    If I was you, I would build my silo with only 1 type of category, Type or Brand.
    so it would be something like:
    Domain.com/eggfork/product123review
    OR
    Domain.com/bluefork/product123review

    Let me know if you have any more questions.

    You could have left the brand out of the url.


    This would have been fine - meatforkguide.com/meatfork/forknamereview

    What if my domain is already "established"?
    I should have thought of this before I bought the domain. But now I think I'm going to stay with that domain..

    It really looks better if I just use the brand. But how I will classify the other categories (egg fork / fruit fork)?
    Should I separate everything by the brand?



    It really looks better!

    Ehh well there is no real solution now unless u use this domain only for meatfork.
