I am currently researching the process of siloing a Magento website. We have about 1,600 pages covering 1,400 products and I would like to silo the entire site into descreet sections. Has anyone done this before? Does anyone have any advice?
Hi Nick ...
Using the Silo technique is always easier on a new site rather than an existing enterprise, however, that does not mean that it cannot be done or even should not be done ...
The whole principal revolves around controlling link relevancy within an accepted group without diluting the relevancy to other areas of the site where there may be a relevancy issue ..
It most certainly can be done, although you would need to be very careful with the theming / template issues you may uncover within the process .. it’s obviously a very good technique for the purposes of SEO, but like I said it’s usually employed at the beginning of a project. With 1600 pages across 1400 products, your going to have a lot of fun trudging through the entire list to categorize them efficiently and at the same time ensuring no cross category pollution of the keyword phrases in mind ..
All I can do for the moment is wish you good luck and many happy hours of putting things in the right boxes without cross contamination of the purity of the phrases .. not for the faint hearted this one ..
