    I've heard a it about this and wondering if it helps. Where can I learn more about it? Does it have anything to do with playlists? Thanks.

    In business, the Silo approach is actually a bad practice. Read more about it here.

    That's a different Silo, it's about how the information flows into a company for example. It can be an negative aspect, info is not shared to all, or not directly.

    I found today those 2 videos randomly:




    In this they talk about silo for ranking on youtube, also the playlists that also can help.

    I'm still trying to digest the info, I don't see (yet) how a playlist help the main video, it should act like a backlink ?

    Anyway, I know this thread is very old, I found it researching for more info about the Silo on Youtube, I am trying to add more discussion in this direction

    thanks for the info, it's an interesting approach but... i'm afraid it's not actually working the same on youtube, don't take my word for it,
    but if you check a kw of a niche that was mentioned on the 2nd video "florida acupuncture" and you search it on youtube
    first, the default search result page will only show videos and not playlists, if you insist and add filter to the results to show playlists
    you will get on the #1st result a playlist that made for SEO it contains niche videos uploaded a year ago... but all with 0 views
