    Hello all I just had a question in regards of how you guy's structure pillar articles to rank for keywords.

    I'm currently writing one and want to rank for best *category*
    Example: Let's say I'm trying to rank for best electric shaver.

    In my pillar article is it wise to separate in section and do:

    Best electric shaver for men
    Best electric shaver for women
    best electric shaver for sensitive skin
    best electric shaver for head
    etc ..

    would that be a good idea for pillar articles or would you make each section it's own post and just do a pillar article about best electric shaver overall??

    Seems spammy

    You're better off establishing context with LSI keyword clusters

    Again, the focus is not on keyword repetition but THEME repetition.

    The approach you outlined would have worked well 5 years ago, now with LSI on ROIDS, you need to use themed collections of keywords.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what is LSI?

    Better to use generic and research based article to get more readers engagements. The minimum bounce rate will also cause to get your keywords rank.

    I'd do a natural reading article for each keyterm and do internal linking between them.
