I am aware that a Silo structure, is a way to logically organise website content; with vertical linking, within each Silo, helping visitors and search engines understand a site's overall theme(s)/Topic(s).
Furthermore, I understand there are 2 approaches to creating a Silo:
- Physical Silo: This being the directory structure of the URL.
- Virtual Silo: This being the internal linking structure.
Having come across Silo examples online, I can see that many suggest that a Silo is a Static Page, with Blog/Products Categories and their respective Posts and Products with each Silo.
If this is the case, what are the implications when it comes to Taxonomies/URL structures; since Pages are a different Taxonomy to Categories & Posts/Products.
Is it a case that a Silo is excluded from the URL structure, relying on a Virtual Silo to 'make the link' to the Category pages or is it a case that a Silo is in fact a Category page?
