    Question Silo Structure ?

    Hello Hello,

    I read a lot about a correct silo structure. But for some reason, I was not able to find any info-graphic that clearly shows the flow of the link structure and the entire architecture of a blog or website.
    So I thought it's time to attack this topic and I created this architecture.

    I am still not a 100% sure if this is right, or wrong... I also don't know to which site the last post of a silo should link to ?

    Any thoughts, any comments, hints & help more as welcome and appreciated.
    Thank you so much !

    Siloing is an obsolete idea cooked up by Bruce Clay back around 2007-8 or so, when people still believed in "PR sculpting." It is BS and has no impact on SEO rankings. As far as I know, no major SEO (sorry, I don't consider Bruce Clay major) has accepted this the siloing view, yet due to BC's propaganda the idea has unfortunately gained wide circulation.

    Create a natural site structure / navigation for your users, and use a flat URL structure as much as possible. Some studies have shown the number of subfolder slashed in the URL to be inversely correlated with Google rankings (though this is not a major factor).
