    I've found a niche on clickbank that I want to promote with a min-authority site, but I'm not quite sure on how to structure it.

    Gravity is around 30
    Entry Point for customers is below $30
    Competition in Google is all 10K and below on keywords.
    SEO competition isn't too tough based on GKWT / Market Samurai / Long Tail Pro / Traffic Travis / Ahref's / SEOMoz

    I'm going to buy a domain and think of some catchy brand name. Install WordPress / List Building etc.

    The part I'm not sure about is Clickbank has software and PFD's / videos for my niche and if I just add each product as an individual post I'm concerned about the link juice not affecting the site properly. I can buy PBN links all day, but I'll only be ranking the main page. Not the post with the offers on them. I'm thinking the offer pages (product review pages) need to be linked to the homepage to have proper distribution of link juice. In other words, creating actual pages instead of posts.

    Main page is just 1 static homepage. Then a silo for each product, but with each sub niche there are multiple products. For example,

    Static Homepage > Sub niches in Nav Bar

    CB Program 1
    Article
    Article

    CB Program 2
    Article
    Article

    CB PDF 1
    Article
    Article

    CB PDF 2
    Article
    Article


    Trying to make it look something like this...

    Here's another live example.

    Questions

    1) How do you create a branded website that offers multiple product solutions in a silo format to maximize PBN / High PR links? I don't want to be building links to each individual post (hence the silo setup)

    2) If I rank keywords for individual articles (pages) what's the point in someone going to the page if it's not a page with a CB offer on it? Maybe graphic ads in the sidebar solve this problem.

    3) Should I put a link to the actual CB sales page in each Article or interlink it to the individual product review page on my site? That ruins the whole silo structure. Plus I don't want it to look all spammy with aff links in each article.

    I saw a post from noobwarrior.com where he created just 1 main page with a HTML table and compared each product. I don't think this layout provides for expansion into other products within the niche. What happens when you have another solution to provide people? You can't have a table with 20 products on it. Or a navigation bar with 20 silos.

    Thanks for any help or resources you can provide. Hopefully you can tell I've been doing my research on this, just looking for some help.

    My answers to your questions:

    1. You've already answered your own question. Use a silo setup for max link juice distribution. Also, install a related posts plugin that displays related posts at the end of each post.

    2. They will gain some value from the post because of the information it contains. It also lessens your bounce rate and bolsters your site's credibility. If you want to maximize your earnings, you can highlight the articles containing CB offers.

    3. In my experience, placing direct links to sales pages yields the highest conversions relative to linking to product review pages which then link to the sales pages. However, you can link to the product review pages if you want less affiliate links (it won't ruin the silo setup). But, technically, the number of affiliate links on your site will remain constant either way.

    Thanks for replying, I appreciate it. I think I have my head wrapped around what to actually put on the pages now and somewhat of how to link them together.

    Now for the actual implementation.

    You can create a page in WordPress, then create another page and assign it as a child page. I've been reading that doing it this way isn't actually creating a silo because the child page will still link back to the other parent category pages in top navigation menu.

    The child page will have a link to the post after it in the series, but also to the to the other parent category pages.

    Questions

    1) Do the links in the navigation bar affect the structure / divide the link juice up because they display on child pages?

    2) How do I interlink the category pages / Is this done automatically in the nav bar?


    I'm guessing as long at the child pages don't link to other child pages in another silo I should be good.

    There's got to be a WordPress plugin for this. Closest I could find was this article.

    For anyone following along. I found this cool diagram that gives a better idea of what I'm trying to make here.
