    Let's say this is my website: www , mywebsite , com
    I create a page called my money page: www , mywebsite , com / mymoneypage

    Then create money page-subpage and while in Wordpress Page editor, I manually edit
    the URL by adding a slash "/mymoneypage/" and the result URL is

    www , mywebsite , com /mymoneypage/ sub-page

    This way I can manually silo to site structure so the juice flows to sub-pages as well.
    Do I get this right? Would you call it manual siloing?
    I don't really want to deal with Plugins or Categories and this seems like a quick
    method silo a site if you already have a plan layed out. Thoughts?

    You have the basics right.

    - There are various ways of doing silos (link to parent, link to peers, etc.). Think of this as building the hierarchy to pass on the juice. More the juice, more the value
    - Do not link across categories, or to uncles and cousins. Just link it to the father!

    URLs denoting the hierarchy are one part of the work, while the other is the linking strategy.

    I find silo sites ugly (even sites from a few successful SEO guys). There are no "recent posts", or "popular posts". There is no way of linking another popular article even though it may be relevant (for e.g. I cannot directly create link to "Check out my new product here" in random pages).

    Silo sites have ranked well. "Normal" sites have ranked well too, and are more human friendly. If you are new, try out with something normal before you rank the heck out from silos :)

    By my opinion the juice won't just come because you placed a page in a directory.
    If you have a link from the parent page to the subpage, then the juice will follow, otherwise it won't because Google follows links, not directory structures.
