How to build/create silo structure in WordPress/Blogger website?
How can we create a silo structure on our website :- Here I am going to tell you how you can create Silo Structure for website using both Category and Internal Linking. So let’s know:-
Step1.:- You download the list of your blog posts. The first thing you need to do then is to export/download and install any WordPress data to XML/CSV plugin.
Then export a list of all your published blog posts as a CSV file:
Export your blog post list as a CSV file.
Step2.:- Create a spreadsheet in Google Sheet. Next, create a new spreadsheet in Google Sheets and import the CSV file into the sheet you just exported from your website.
In Google Sheets, add a new column to the right of the column titled Your Blog Posts, and label it ‘Content Silo’.
Step3.:- Identify the Content Silo
Next, identify which of your blog posts can be grouped into the same topic group. Create that label.
When you’re finished assigning each blog post to a content silo, you can sort the table by that column, so that your articles are grouped by content silo.
Using Google Sheets to Identify Content Silos
In the next step, we will use WordPress categories to create interlinked content silos based on those topic groups.
Step4.:- Create WordPress Categories. Now you need to create a category in WordPress for each of your topic groups.
In the example we’re using, every time you write a new blog post about that label, you’ll assign that article to your category.
WordPress automatically creates a ‘Category’ page for each category. The Category page will list (a) blog posts falling under that category, along with a short excerpt from the article, and (b) links to individual articles or blog posts in that category.
You should also create internal links from each page in the content silo back to the category page.
And that’s all – you now have a WordPress category page-based content silo.
Step5.:- Create internal link. Internal linking is an important part of building a material silo.
But you have to be careful with your internal linking to build an effective content silo.
If you’re like many bloggers, you might be doing internal linking quite randomly.
You simply type a keyword into the WordPress internal linking tool and follow the suggestions given by WordPress.
But it does not produce clearly defined material silos. In fact, this type of internal linking will dilute any content silos you create.
The internal linking rule for content silos is never to link outside the silo. The only exception to this is vertical linking, when you link to a top-level category page or home page.
