creating a silo structure using wordpress | warrior forum ... - get rid of acne skin care products
This is my quick guide to building a silo structure website using WordPress.
If you don't know what the site of the silo structure is and why it is used, then you can do some research outside the scope of this article.
1) Get your keywords.
I do keyword research before I build any page.
If I find a keyword to rank, say acne, I put it in Google's keyword tool and set the matching type to be precise, make sure I check "only shows ideas that are closely related to my search terms.
"I want to make sure I get the relevant keyword ideas.
2) organize and group keywords.
I sort based on local monthly search results.
I select all the keywords and export them to a CSV file.
I open my CSV file and organize closely related keywords.
Using [Acne] as my keyword, I'll sort the results out like this: [acne treatment] [best acne treatment] [acne scar treatment] [acne treatment] [natural acne treatment] [acne and alcohol nose] [common acne] [what causes acne removal] [acne scar cream] [Lotus Seed Oil Acne] [Aloe Vera acne] 3) your keywords.
After I grouped my keywords, I gave them my own description of the key words of the group.
The keywords you are grouping often appear in your list of grouped keywords.
For example, one of the key words in the first group is [acne treatment].
Since my main website is about [Acne], I will do this part about acne treatment.
What you do is tag these groups as they will be a category or part of your website.
Here is how I will mark the above groups: Acne Treatment (I also use acne treatment as my key word) it takes the most time for the type of acne product at this step, as this is the most critical.
This is how we will build our website by grouping keywords.
Don't be afraid to spend careful time planning and creating your page before you start your next step, as it will make it easier for you on the road ahead.
4) Create a page.
Once we have the confidence to plan out the silo structure, we need to take action and start building our page.
What I like to do is build a silo at a time because it allows me to focus on a group a related keyword.
These pages are at the top of our silo structure.
They will be our mini authority on the subject/keywords.
I use WordPress pages instead of posts.
As I will discuss next, the posts will support these pages.
Now, use the WordPress page.
These pages will behave the same way as WordPress category pages.
You know those WP Category pages where all your posts under the same category appear on the same page.
We want to use a page here because a page gives us more flexibility.
It allows us to add our keyword SEO content.
Back to our acne example, you will create a page called "acne type.
This page will be the gateway to different types of acne.
Since we don't have any type of acne yet, next, you will take different types of acne in our Keyword Group in step 3 and make sub-pages under the type of acne.
Now, on your acne type page, you can create links to subpages and provide a brief description of each page.
This page URL: acne type acne is bad, no fun in your teens.
Not all acne is equal and people suffer from different types of acne.
Note: WordPress themes may or may not support dynamic addition of page lists on pages.
You might do some plugins.
This will also be a nice menu as you will see the type of acne on the main page that is scrumptious, unusual, adult, baby as a children's menu.
5) power your page with posts.
I like to add permissions to my page with posts.
What I did was to find a page I created and create a post using the same keywords as the page.
I then link the post to the page.
This is the same concept as writing articles and submitting them to different article directories.
What you do is make your page look like an authority.
What you end up with is a different page, each with its own set of posts to support them/support their keywords.
The trick for posts is that you don't want them to point to pages with different topics.
If you create a product page with a list of specific acne products, you can back up the product with a post commenting on the product.
Now you certainly don't want this article to point to a different product, so keep your link in order!
Relevant article plugins work well for posts as they can link keyword related posts.
If you put your post under a category such as a blog, then make sure you don't allow the category page in the bot. txt file.
This is because all your posts will appear in/category/blog/page, which goes against keeping your posts under the same silo.
I tend to build my WordPress category to match the same structure as my page.
This makes it easier for me and I prefer orders. Example #1 -
Silo for website Example #2 example #3. This is an example of a company's silo, but for your website it will work the same way.
The chair is your home page, vice president, marketing will be a category with two sub-categories
Category, lead generation, and marketing development.
Vertical bars under these children
The category will be your article.
