    I'm starting my new niche site and I was wondering if you should silo your site? I am using Wordpress and have read up on how to silo your sites but people are having trouble with link bleeding(someshit like this) and I was wondering if I should silo my site?

    Also so are there any plugins which do this automatically for you and does it work with all themes?

    I am considered a newbie here so take it easy.

    thanks

    Siloing is easy if you understand your niche, and yes, you should silo your site. If you don't understand/aren't familiar with the niche or if you're experiencing any difficulties, use a keyword research tool. An example of a silo is:

    Category>>> Vacuum cleaners
    Sub category>>> Best vacuum cleaners
    Article 1>>> Best vacuum cleaners for pet hair
    Article 2>>> Best vacuum cleaners for hardwood floors

    I came up with that with a little keyword research.

    How big of a site are you planning to build? I wouldn't silo a site with 20 pages of content for sure, anything upwards of 50-80.

    its a niche site so depending on how it ranks we'll see how many pages, but as start it won't be anywhere near 50 pages

    It's easy with WordPress using parent categories and sub-categories if you're publishing your content as posts, or using parent pages and child pages if you're publishing your content as pages. Hope this helps.
