    First and foremost, Thank you for opening such a thread to help newbies answer their questions.
    Actually, I do have one question and is about Silo structure.

    I am linking each blog post with another one,
    each blog post contains around 2-3 links to a related post.
    And each blog post has a link to money page using natural anchors (keywords which I am trying to Rank the money page for (current ranking is #10)

    The question is, is this a good Silo structure
    ? should I reduce the number of internal linking within a blog post? what

    Thank you so much!

    There's plenty of plugins. Just search wordpress plugins for it.

    1000-1500 words for search vol 50-200

    1500-5000+ for 200-1000+

    I don't target many beyond 1000. Harder to rank and there's just so many 200-1000's. You can invest $30k and get a $20k-$30k/mo site targeting 200-1000 vol main keywords. No need for higher.


    Just change the url structure and 301 the old urls.

    You don't want pages focused on a single term. This is so incredibly dated. Google is NOT ranking pages based on terms, but rather searcher intent. Read up on TFIDF and you'll understand why I say this is so dated.

    Your h2's and h3's shouldn't be keyword focused, but natural.

    So your 'best toaster' article would have things like

    Our Top 10 Picks

    What we like about it

    Buyers Guide

    Some feature vs another feature

    etc etc

    It's not the permalink section you need to edit.

    I've written enough above about how to do it. I don't have time to repeat it all, sorry. I've written over 10k words on this already. Have you read everything 2-3x including the plugin documentation?

    Is this an ecommerce or review site? It looks like a review site, in which case, this is not how you silo a review site. You don't want to go that specific gym/barbells/olympic. You're only going to have a couple of review articles in here.

    Gym/weights
    Gym/Clothing
    Martial Arts/boxing
    Nutrition/muscle-building
    Nutrition/weight-loss

    etc




    No body parts :) See above. Stick with actual topics.

    1. Yes you can add later. It's better to do it all at the start. If you're engineering something you don't decide to add something in later. You design it then implement it.

    2. Yes, you can have those in a tech silo.

    But, if you're going to have Best hoverboard for X, do NOT create a best hoverboard in 2019. Choose one or the other. And best cheap will compete with best under $100.


    Google ads for search.

    That's not a silo structure. See the 10k+ words I wrote above for details and https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-ultimate-guide-to-seo-siloing-dominate-google-in-2018.985967/ and https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/h...ilos-full-amazon-example.828483/#post-8726224


    Yes, please see https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/a...-expired-domains.1090579/page-3#post-12393265

    Whoa, and yesterday I was wondering why I was writing 8,000 words for a 7K monthly search keyword thinking it was too much. Thanks.

    let's say my silo structure looks like this:
    • mysite.com/gaming/monitors/hp
    • mysite.com/gaming/monitors/dell
    where should I add guide articles for monitors? on:
    • mysite.com/gaming/monitors/guides/best-monitors-2019
    • mysite.com/gaming/monitors/guides/best-g-sync-monitors
    or directly on
    • mysite.com/gaming/monitors/best-monitors-2019
    • mysite.com/gaming/monitors/best-g-sync-monitors

    Hello,

    Awesome post, i'm excited to give it a go!

    My question is...

    When you say this. - b) Create the following post categories. animals, dogs, cats, akita & siamese. You can organize them with the correct parents, but this isn't needed. It makes it easier to view your silo structure in the category section so I do recommend this.

    Can this process be re-created using a Custom Field, or event a Post Tag or is it important to have the posts tagged in Categories?

    My point being, if I create a Category & Parent category for my posts, and then create pages that house those categories, in the same way, won't I then have a duplicate category url structure e.g. dog/breed/hound for my categories and a page URL structure that is the same?

    Hi splishsplash,

    For building 2 tiers link strategy, do I have to wait for the next day to build tier 2 links ? Can I build immediately after successfully created tier 1 link ?

    Thank You

    Thanks for sharing awesome info.

    Can you please let us know about role of social media in rankings.

    Can an affiliate site rank without having decent social shares and social popularity

    If you have /laptops/dell/
    And then laptops/performance-test/Dell-v11

    You can assign that article to Dell and Performance Test categories

    If I am wrong please correct me @splishsplash

    This is an incredible thread. Spent the last 30-45 minutes reading through. So much gold. Thanks!

    I set up a site with a similar silo structure via your silo guide. The site has a lot of homepage links already, but planning on following your strategy of building to mostly homepage, and then to silos, and then to pages as this is a site I care a lot about with all branded and generic anchors as you've recommended.

    You suggested having a budget for linkbuilding. If I want to spend to get 1 link a day for the 20-30 links per month you recommended, how would you go about doing it? How much money should I plan to spend per month? I can carve out $1k a month if needed. I want high quality, low risk links.

    I've currently been doing my own guestpost outreach, sending 100-200 emails a month, getting 1-7 links depending on the results. It's a bit hard for me to scale this up well.

    I already asked this question in another thread but didn't get an answer to that yet. What is your opinion on that?
