    I'm building a niche site, and was thinking it would probably be best to go with a static home page, with a call to action row along the top, then below an about section then next a section of categories to lead deeper down to content.

    What would be a good static home page?

    I'm using "Visual Composer" wordpress plugin by the way.

    A snippet about your niche product may look good on static page.

    What about adding categories on the static home page? Like for instance, if it's a skincare site, which covers acne, skin whitening, skin tags etc

    Would it be a good idea to put those categories on the home page?, (not in the menu, just on the page)

    It will make your static page a bit bulky, have these in menu, may be some review snippet can be placed on static page.

    I'm a bit confused on how I can use the main menu bar for navigation.

    In this post: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/s...-blueprint-9-parts.825593/page-4#post-8704238

    It says this:

    "
    Here's an example of the type of site where you would want to silo.

    The way I would structure this is on the main menu of the homepage we have "Shaving", "Anti-Aging" and "Dental" with dropdowns 1 level below, ie, to best beard trimmers, braun shavers and so on.

    If you click on 'shaving' you'll have the same menu you would have had on the shaving only site. Same idea. Drop down to 1 level.

    If you click on Anti-aging, you'll get a menu with 'best anti aging creams', 'anti aging foods' etc."

    -------------------------------------------------

    What I don't get is, If I have "Shaving", "Anti-Aging" and "Dental" with dropdowns in the menu on the homepage, I'll also have that same menu on every page, and since it would be on every page, that would mean that every page is linking to basically everything else, therefore ruining the silo structure. Am I right about that?

    So wouldn't that mean I'd have to find a way to only have that menu on the home page?
