    Hi guys, I'm trying to manually silo a wordpress site.

    When it comes to the home page link on every page. Can that be covered by having a link to that in the site header?

    Also can the links to the other categories and posts in the categories be covered by placing links to them in the relevant posts?

    I.E the home page containing links to all the categories at the bottom of the content on the home page and the category page having links to each post within the category at the bottom of the content?

    Is this right?

    Not entirely sure what your question is... But siloing is about linking a string of pages together in a closed loop, ending on the page you started on. This returns the remaining link juice on the last page, to the first page (usually the home page). Essentially its just about controlling where you want the link juice to go.

    If you have one link on a page, then all the link juice available will go to the page that was linked to. If you have 2 links, then half the link juice goes to each page linked to and so on.

    Normally every page on a website will have a link to the home page on it, so every page will be sending some link juice back to the home page.

    If you add additional links, you are simply decreasing the value of each link. This allows you to direct the flow of link juice to the pages you want to have more link juice.

    Try to think about which pages you want to rank. Then send the links to that page in loops from the home page.
