    Hello Guys I am building an authority on WordPress affiliate site but I have a really big dilemma.
    For the structure I am following the concepts in this guide as I really liked it: php idiot proof guide for authority site building (sorry I cant post the link i dont have rights to post links)

    So my dilemma is how to structure the pages that will be targeted by my Primary Long Tail Keywords. I will have a lot of pages 50-100 that I consider important and primary and will be highly optimized (they can be grouped under categories). To understand me clearly I will give an example. For instance I am building a site for Snowboards my primary pages will be - Freeride Snowboards, Freestyle Snowboards, DownHill snowboard (they can be grouped under riding type) , Begginer Snowboards, Intermediate snowboard, Expert snowboards (can be grouped under skill of rider), Cheap snowboard, Expensive snowboard (can be grouped under price).

    So you got my idea. The pages that will be targeted will be Freeride, frestyle, expensive, begginer etc. and those pages will link to the actual products. My dilemma is how to link to target pages. I find two options both with cons and pros.

    1) From the Navigation Bar link to the different categories - Snowboards by Riding style, Snowboard by skill of rider, Snowboards by price and from the categories pages link to the targeted pages. The cons I find are 3 here - the products will be all the way on 4th level of the site which is too much for Seo and Users. The Categories pages will only contain a bunch of links and will look dull and empty.
    2) From the Navigation Bar or Home page link to every target page. The cons are this will be overstuffed. I am thinking the best solution is a drop down menu as if I place them all in the nav bar it will be HUGE. Is this a good idea for crawlers and users? The other possibility is to link from the Home page but this will ruing navigation and Home page.

    What is your opinion.

    Thank you!

    You could put the most popular pages directly into the nav bar drop down and then have a page like: "More Snowboards by Category" and then list all the Snowboards by Category on that page.

    If the drop down menu is not an issue I will put them all. Like there are 4-5 categories with ~10 pages.

    They will be group by categories which only will be represented in the drop down menu.

    Like this:

    By Skill | By Tyope | By Price|
    1.begg 1.freeride 1. Expensive
    2.expert 2.freestyle 2. cheap
