I have over 10,000 articles that are unique (they are all over 600 words) and I want to do this right since I'll be building a mega site.
First place, my CMS is Wordpress. I will not be using any posts (if someone disagrees with me, please let me know - I would love to hear your point), I will be using nothing but pages. This will be a huge information website.
I will be placing these articles (that never have been online) in a silo structure. Now - before I start, I want to make sure that I am doing the silo structure correctly. Please see below:
Color of Cats
As you can see, I have just one silo. I will have links on the - let's say - "Color of Cats" page to the "Black Cats", "White Cats" and "Yellow Cats" pages.
Now here is the question. To allow the bots to crawl better, should I have on the "Black Cats" page, a link to the "White Cats" page as well as a link back to the "Color of Cats" page?
Then the next question would be - on the "White Cats" page, would I have a link going to both the "Black Cats" & "Yellow Cats" page AND a link going back to the "Color of Cats" page?
It makes sense to me to have it layed out this way since the bots looks at sites as linier. If I am wrong, please let me know how the silo structure should look like using my examples.
Thanks guys so much!
