    So, my question is the following;
    What is the proper structure of a blog?

    Currently, this is my biggest struggle as I don't have any problems with writing my own content. I've decided I wanted to go ahead and write a few post(s) ranging anywhere from fifty to two-hundreds and seeing how the page did for itself, but the problem about not really know how to structure a blog persists.

    Lets pause for a moment and use the good ol' example of using an blog that's related to the health niche.
    We're going to have the following 'sub niches' throughout our blog, those being weight loss, dieting, exercise.

    Alright, great so we have our idea set-up, we know what niche we want to target and our micro-niches, great.

    Now how would the blog be structured? Do you just throw a mix of everything all up and keep posting? Do you create a different page for each sub-niche and post on that page? How should you go about doing it. These are my questions.

    Hello,

    have a look into the threads about "siloing" here, you can build good structures with that.

    If you want traffic from search engines, the index page should match your most important keyword(s).

    Than you can write categories (sea-food, vegetarian food, meat etc.) and articles (so your articles about chicken, beef, bacon etc. should be in the category "meat").

    I'm sorry, but I don't feel as if this questions been answered. The answer that was provided was more or less just poking at my question, because I asked how to go about setting up the structure of a blog, not a method of setting a blog up. I was recommended an Internal linking solution to help with SEO and was told that I should create categories, however I felt that creating categories was obvious. I have re-written my question in hopes for a more in-depth response from a member.

    Well, creating categories for your structure is really all there is to it, unless I'm missing something. You can have your home page as a static page with some general information, or your homepage will list your latest articles or ones which you want to feature, and your category links will be in the side bar. If someone wants information on a subject, they will click the category or search and get all your articles on that subject. When you come to writing your articles, just make sure they are in relevant categories and have relevant tags. It would be a pain to create static pages to list your articles instead of using categories, they are best kept for things like "About Us" and "Contact Us" etc.

    A lot of it is just making sure you have your keywords in the right places, category names, descriptions, tags etc. for SEO purposes. Just keep writing articles to fill up each category more and more as time goes on.

    My blogs' structure is pretty simple. Main niche, sub topics, articles for each subtopic.

    Yes, the better is to add categories in your menu.

    But what's is the difference between a category site and a silo site?

    Add categories, pages and make sure you have a right permalink and you are good to go.

    Segregate different segments according to topics, it will be helpful and comfortable to find for the visitors.

    Keep your blog's structure and design as simple as possible so that it is more user-friendly for your visitors.
