SEO Sculpting and Shaping a Silo


I recently took a very daring plunge and reorganized the entire directory structure of my site … I am going to take quite a hit in PageRank for a while, but in the end I think that it's going to be a vast improvement over the way I had previously set my site up.

There are a few important details regarding the way that a site is set up … directory structure, visitor traffic flow, and most importantly, the way all of the links are mapped out throughout a web site.

Based on some very serious studies regarding the actual breakdown of PR on my site, I realized that there were some improvements that could be made to dramatically increase the site's potential for higher search engine rankings. That being said … there is a fantastic report given several years ago from a guy who was way ahead of the pack where he hypothesized the actual distribution of PageRank through several different structures of websites.
