    I have a site that has over 10 silo pages, my budget now not enabling me to buy guest posts for every silo page, so I want to know, if I bought guest posts to my homepage, will this help my silos to rank? will homepage backlinks give a boost to my silos? or should I give interest to my silos and buy guest posts to them one by one?
    I don't want to rank my homepage actually, my silo pages are my money pages, for example my site looks like:

    Electronics (homepage)
    Laptop Reviews (Silo Page -money page)
    Tablet Reviews (Silo Page -money page)
    Camera Reviews (Silo Page -money page)
    TV Reviews (Silo Page -money page)
    etc,,,

    So basely I'm not interested on ranking my homepage, since it's not my money page, I just want to rank the silo page (money pages) but I don't have enough money to buy guest posts for every silo page right now, so what if I just built backlinks for the homepage - will this boost my silos rankings?

    - silo page is a category page that has content, it is considered as the money page of the site.

    according to me you have to do work for every page... some time if you doing work for home page then automatically your internal page low searches keywords can rank but now a days dont think it will work

    Bring more info to the table. How old is ur website, how is the competition for ur kws? The hole point of silo sites is to funnel all link juice to desired money pages. If the internal links are done right u need backlinks to ur funnel page and for ur silo pages if u want to rank properly.

    Hmmmm, I'm honestly not sure would give you the best 'bang for your buck' here. Will sending links to your homepage boost up your other pages/silo's? Yes, they will. Providing you have the right silo structure, link juice will flow through the architecture of your site. However, quite how many you will need to achieve a boost in other pages through an increase in DA is an open question. Have you found one page to convert better than others? If so, perhaps just focus on ranking that page. Then, once you have some additional funds you can target more pages directly. I would also strongly consider looking into 'topic pages' if you haven't done so already.
