    Hello there


    So am about to put in alot of effort in a couple of websites that am planning on deploying two weeks from now and i started doubting shit again :( . I 've got two questions:

    1 - Should i create my own website with static pages and silo it or forget about that and use wordpress like always?

    2 - Am not targeting English language, if you do recommend me to silo - what about the URL encoding? should i create the html files and give them names in the foreign language normally or will i need to somehow encode them as URLs like this first

    www.Website.bhw/%D8%AA%D8%AC%D8%B1%D8


    Your input is very appreciated.

    Mucho gracias hermanos!

    Unless you are working on multi niche sites, you don't have to silo. Most people here have no idea what real silo even is and trust me, it requires a lot of sacrifice when it comes to user experience if you want to pull it off. If your sites target just one niche, then just interlink everything with everything and do not bother about silo.

    About your second question - No idea.

    I'm a big fan of silos still to this day. They do take a lot of work though as others mentioned.

    a lot of work? in terms of creating the website or populating it?


    I really like it when you reply to a thread of mine Nargil, i feel like SEO had took the shape of a man and is replying me lol :D



    it is actually a multi-niche website and its going to be quite big Homepage --> 10 categories ---> 10 child categories per main category ---> 50 posts per child category. [ Large Main Niche with two layers of related high search volume low competition keywords ( something like Apple | Apple Juice | Cold Apple Juice | Then 50 variation of cold apple juices ] i want it to be my first serious SEOed website. was digging on my competitors and noticed one of them doing this silo structure using a self coded website, so obvious that its self built [ looks like a grad school project ] and its doing quite well, checked its backlinks profile with openlinkprofiler and Surprise! Not even a single link.. Nada..Zip but its content rich not like the other spammy websites ranking on the first page so i guessed i would provide even more hand written content on launch than he actually have on his website right now and stick it to him :D and then pretty much do this


    gotta get my piece of the pie, its about time now.

    PS: i forgot to mention that i have tested the waters by creating a website that contained all of my targeted keywords with thin spunned content, i started generating traffic in a matter of a week so i guess if i did it this way am going to dominate this niche. Thoughts?

    That's not a multiniche site. That's site about cats. :) If it were about cats and cars, that would be a multiniche site.

    If you know how to do silo only then do it. Otherwise go normal way.
