    What the hell is Silo Structure?


    Hey guys..

    Now whats this thing called "Silo Structure"?

    I did search G for that, had a read on this page:

    http://www.no-bull.net/reviews/silo-structure-latent-semantic-indexing.html

    I dont understand whats all this fuss about? Is it that important?

    Should I actually think even a little about it? Or a focus on great content and links will always help SEO's to win?

    What kinda structure is this? Please explain in case any example is avilable let me know..


    I think its all Bull S....and as long as content and links are good, it shouldnt matter.... What do you all say?

    Guide..

    thanks in advance..

    Its a new term for 'keyword density' the argument is now you fill you page with the right combination of theemed kW IMO. Worth about the same as a prgram that guarantees to otimize you KWD, TITLE, Meta tags, text to code ratio etc. I would bet this software do0es as much to help rankungs as the link in foghorns signature does http://forums.seochat.com/showpost.php?p=103230&postcount=6 ......

    Mentioning this term 'silo structure' repeatedly without any explanation sounds to me like an attempt to mislead LSI to believe that 'silo structure' has something to do with LSI ;-) (And I'm even helping with that )
    It definitely it a well written, but still just an advertisement.

    i can't remember where i heard this term before and have the same question to ask. i think if this thing do not get attention from majority then i consider it has not much effect to us.

    No not that. i was reading a related article (i think not knowing exactly what they mean in the one you refer to) recently. It was argued that if google is in some form linking relevant words (LSI I know/think is much more than this) than maybee it is possible to influence relevance by commbing those words in some form on your page. Ie if selling tennis shoes include many related theemed key words on your site ie roger feddera, tennis courts, andre agesie, wombelem etc this could increase theemed relevance. It look liked garbage to me. But I think (it was a while ago) that the auther talked about a silo effect. ie filling your page with relevant 'charf' or something...

    my view. write for users software does not do that..

    Exactly, the software is definitely not as useful and valuable as the author wants the reader to believe.

    We'll see to what degree his statements about the rise of importance of high quality content and the decline of importance of links will turn out to be true.

    Well I'm kinda suprised that nobody knows what this is Either that or I'm lucky that I've heard of it...

    It's actually called Siloing. Not for everybody but damn good way to design your site if you've got a wide range of products that you're advertising and if you have a large site.

    It's also something that you need to do correctly from the beginning unless you're going to be designing your site from scratch.

    Siloing has a lot to do with internal site structure and linkage and folder and file names and locations within your site. For lack of time I cannot sit here explaining it today but I'm pretty sure if you go to Bruceclay.com you'll find a whole lot on Silo's. Here's one link http://www.bruceclay.com/newsletter/0906/silos.html

    Hope that helps.

    thank you.. interesting article but i cannot see how that is dufferent from what most of us have been doing for a long time. The idea that different stuff can hurt your serps as it can reduce themed relevance is interesting but i would think is unsupported by a search of many momey related key terms. i s'pose it boils down to the concept of theme...This is an extremley flexabilele concept.. Still thank you..

    I think that whenever there is a change in googles algo(or theory of) you are always going to have people trying to take advantage to come up with this great method of staying ahead of the pack.(For a fee of course). After all, this is how google have been making so much money over the last few years with adsense. Businesses know the value of being at the top on google, and will pay almost anything to achieve it within reason. Same with this software. People will pay for it if they think it is a quick fix.

    I think from what I have read about LSI it is definetely the way to go for Google. Google are in a constant battle with webmasters and other search engines to provide relevant results to users queries. If they stop dishing up relevant results, people will use another SE.

    So I think in the near future there will be even more emphasis on content semantics and themes etc. I dont think it will be enough to have thousands of inbound links into your site. Google will have to start developing better ways of ranking sites. LSI and silo structure?

    Just my opinion though.
