    So I'm wondering what you guys use for silo landing pages?

    For your top tier and second tier silo pages, do you actually make it a landing page with heaps of content?

    Or do you just go more for a navigational approach and just have the links to the next silo?

    Or even a mix of both? I'm struggling to fill up content for some of my silo pages due to the fact that they are more navigational pages rather than landing pages.

    Let's say I was writing about "setting up a small office" my top page would have about 400 words PER silo, with the H2 tagged bit of each section linking to that silo. So say I made a silo "office chairs", I would make an H2 saying " Office chairs, backbone of the office" and link it to that landing page, and then have 400 or so words under it targetting office chairs, and 1-2 LSIs about it.
    The landing page for "Office chairs" would have another 1,000+ words on it, targeting "office chairs" as the primary along with a bunch of long tails. That links to the next page down, then so on and so forth, every 5-7 posts, I do a summary post, where I might target the keyword "office chair safety", but I also link UP the silo for 2-4 posts, plus down the silo one post, plus occasionally I will also toss in a serious authority link(for "office chair safety", I would link to OSHA's page about office accidents).
    I won't interlink my standard silo articles, but might toss in one on my summary post if it is relevant(but only to the top of another silo).

    Short answer: yes, each landing page is loaded with content(words, videos, Infographics, slideshows), the only lighter content is the standard posts within my silo.

    I would put the outgoing authority link only on supporting pages/posts unless really necessary to keep as much link juice/PR as possible within the domain.
