    My site focuses on 1 keyword only, and it is added 1 post only around that keyword. So let call it is a landing page.
    I read some silo guide and people say silo helps maximum SEO - onpage.
    Therefore I want to ask:
    If my site is: abc.com (no EMD) and my keyword is "keyword", then
    - Should I make a page in homepage abc.com (so there is 1 url of my site is: abc.com)
    or
    - Should I make a page has url: abc.com/keyword and build a silo structure with abc.com link to abc.com/keyword-related-1 --> abc.com/keyword-related-2 -> abc.com/keyword-related-3 -> abc.com/keyword -> abc.com

    Please give you opinion. Thank! :eek:

    Silo structure is useful when you are targeting many keywords across a particular niche.

    In your case, since you are targeting a single keyword, you need not overcomplicate and overthink things too much.

    Just build a page and forget about silo.

    There is no point in siloing a site with less than 10 pages.

    Either I don't understand it, or you don't. I don't see the point of siloing such a small website. IMO, a silo should have at least about 15 pages (give or take few)

    ER by the way, siloing is not on-page seo.

    and not having the keyword in the URL isn't the end of the world either. In fact, I bet that is the least of your on-page seo problems.

    Yes, you're absolutely right

    The very minimum is 3 silos, with a minimum of 5 articles per silo

    When you add the mandatory pages such as about us, contact us, privacy, etc. you end up with about 20 pages

    You can of course add more silos and articles to the site at a later date, in an attempt to turn it into an authority site
