How to design a site using a silo structure
I want to discuss am important topic when it comes to SEO called the site structure.
If you want to get maximum benefits from the structure of your web site then using a basic silo will increase how the link juice flows threw your website.
For an example site I am going to use this rhinoplasty Austin site. If you take a close look at the site it uses a basic silo structure.

This creates a silo structure that will let the juice flow through the site better.
