Hey guys, I have a little question about interlinking, since I'm a bit confused. And I have a bit of a problem with money pages.

So when writing my articles, I'm just making silos to interlink a "group" of similar articles. Basically the money page is in the center, and I link info pages to that money page. Plus I try to get some web 2.0 backlinks for the money page and some info pages. Just like @Ryuzaki explains in the new crash course thread.



I have I bit more than 20 articles. And 2 info posts are bringing like 80% of the traffic. They rank for a shit load of long term stuff, even though these are 0 vol terms.

The thing is: Can I use these info posts to interlink to more money pages? Because those are already linking to a money page. Is there a limit? Like when linking outside, so that Google doesn't think you are selling links, or you can go full wikipedia interlinking?

And about the money pages. Looks like these are not ranking at all compared to the info ones. A lot of info pages that I uploaded on July are ranking on top 1 to 5, even a few are on the featured snippet, one is the one with the retarded url "looking at you @CCarter haha".

But when looking at my money pages, even targeting a KGR term with 0 search vol. Those not rank even on the second page. There is more competition though, but they don't target these specific keywords, and they still outrank me. Could this be a problem about on-page SEO, or maybe these have too much competition?

It could also just be time-related. It can take months for individual posts to more up the rankings- especially on new websites.

Go nuts on the internal linking if it's relevant. You won't get penalized. I have between 10 and 40 internal links (excluding menu, related posts, widget, etc) on each page. No problems.

Your money pages need more time to rank because there's more competition. You'll be fine. Send some niche edits towards them if you want to speed up the process.

Has anyone used this for ranking in the map pack? Wondering if the formula works the same for getting a business/website to pop into the map pack for keyword targets.

I have a site ranking high for branded search. Did the method and the articles didn't rank on Pg 1. Wondering do you think branded search could be making our site look like it is a higher level search than it really is?

Game Plan using KGR (Keyword Golden Ratio) Technique:

1. Determine where you are within the Google organic tiers - in our example we are going to use 20-50 organic visitors daily.

2. Do keyword research and find terms that generate 0-10, 10-20, and 20-50 visitors a MONTH (NOT DAILY). Find 30-45 of them.

Use the Keyword Golden Ratio technique for the terms (AND do normal keyword research for the same search volumes to use within the content). I personally go to Fiverr and find providers that do the research for me within 24-36 hours. So for $5-50 days you can get a Fiverr give to generate you up-to 250 terms that have a KGR of 0.25 and under.
3. Order OR write the content yourself, for those terms. Make sure to use the research keyword researched terms, non-KGR, within the content so you can - get this - anchor link upward to your money terms and other important pages! Interlinking seems to be a lost art, but it's how news websites are ranking in the SERPs :wink:
@CCarter Thanks for this great post! I'm about to try this and wanted to clarify something from the bolded parts above:

I'm building a silo. Let's say my site is about electronics and the silo is Ipads. So I focus my keyword research around Ipads, and find the first 30 keywords with KGR < 25 to publish posts about in the first month. At the same time, I do normal KW research (meaning keywords related to the 30 KGR ones but with KGR not necessarily < 25 iiuc, with the same search volume) and use these in the same post. Finally, I insert internal links in this post to money pages, for example, a page with affiliate links.

1. What remains unclear is why the necessity to include non-KGR keywords in the post, and

2. How would this look in practice?

Hope this makes sense...

Cheers!

So you can rank for other terms and long-tailed versions of those terms like "iPad apps for mothers" - if you found "iPad apps for mothers" a good term (doesn't need to be below or at the search volume level of the KGR term that you are targeting, can be higher).

Remember also Google shows excerpts of content areas and also now has some sort of auto-scrolling scenario or whatever (I can't recall the name of it at the moment) where that portion "iPad Apps for Mothers" gets highlighted in the search results.

As well you can use terms like "iPad Apps" (which lets say has 1 million search volume). You are SUPPOSE to be internally link to the money page targeting "iPad Apps". 3 internal links equals one inbound link (from external source) according to Kyle Roof.

Remember these KGR pages are the bottom of your pyramid and you are linking upward to more powerful pages, pillar pages, and money pages. You want the traffic flowing from the bottom of the pyramid to the top, with the top silo being the call to actions that generate you the most money.

You have to visualize the user moving through your website to the optimal call to action. If this was an affiliate site I would capture their email and other contact information as my primary. But that's me cause I think long-term and am creating a brand.

Just wanted to follow up on this process of applying the avalanche technique. So have ordered a list of KGR < 0.25 keywords in the silo I'm trying to build in my niche and got a list of about 70. Most of these are commercial intent keywords ("best x for y") and many of them would fit as secondary keywords in other articles I have already written (money pages in theory).

So the question is: what would be the better strategy:

1) To write independent articles on some of these keywords (even though, as said, they are similar to or would fit as secondary KWs in existing articles) or
2) Include these KWs in the existing articles directly?

You mentioned that one of the uses/benefits of the KGR articles is to link to money pages with 3 internal links counting as one external link. Will this effect be lost with No. 2? I mean, I know that if the KWs are included in existing articles, there will be no internal linking, but wouldn't this be compensated by the additional search traffic brought on by the new terms that the page would, hopefully easily, rank for?

It seems to me that from a site quality perspective, having lots of small articles dedicated to one or a few KGR keywords only would hurt? Or, in any case, that having longer articles with lots of keywords to rank, including the KGR ones, would look and organize better?

Having said that, I guess that the first approach would also have a better chance of improving time on site, in turn, helping with ranking? I was recently following the case of an affiliate site who was kind of "linking down": from his larger "best x for y" articles he was not linking directly to the merchant but to the individual reviews of each of the products (which I assume could be KGR), and from there to the merchant. I guess this also improved his time on site; he claimed this was working for him but he was linking all over the place really as well, so not sure what the real effect of "delaying the affiliate referral" could be...

Cheers!

I'd suggest doing both.
Write independent articles on the KGR KW's to get the inital easy ranking as well as the internal links to your money page, where I'd also include them.
Reason is as statet earlier, by creating individual content for the kw's you'd get some easy rankings and internal linking opportunity, as well as increasing time on site, plus the added bennefit of "conditoning" your readers to click on links on your page, which is probably also why the affiliate site you mentioned is linking all over the place.
As long as the links makes sense and doesn't seem forced in there.

Now in order for the KGR page and the money page to not compete with each other, I'd use the tactic of perhaps elaborating on specific part of the KGR term on the money page, and do the actual KGR page more generalised, for thatt term.

@CCarter @lion1978 Just to follow up on this now with a real life example. I'll just change the names of the product in the post, but the example is real and what I'm doing right now.

So I have a post that was published on August 2, 2020, let's call it "best double camping tent". The current data from Ahrefs for the keyword "best double camping tent" is:
-Volume: 0-10
-Allintitle result from Google is: 76, so KGR minimum of 7.6

The post's average position according to AHrefs has been 27.

My page is in the 50-100 Level.

There's another keyword, "double size tent for camping" that has allintitle results of 2 and volume of 0-10, so KGR minimum of 0.2.

My question: this was supposed to be a money page (best x for y) but as it seems the post is not going to rank in the top 10 for the original targeted keyword, would it be a good idea to try to rank by changing the keyword it's targeting to the one with the good KGR, so change the on page SEO of the article according to the new keyword and the article itself where needed?

Or would it be a better approach to leave the article as is and publish other shorter articles based on related KGR keywords, linking to the original keyword article to see if that helps with ranking?

This is my first try with the technique and I have other articles that I could do the same with, so I wanted to ask for opinions as it could determine the whole strategy going forward.

Would really appreciate your feedback.

Cheers!

@dlangpap in the exampel, whet I would do and what I advice you to do is first have alook in the serps for the keywords and more specifically their sercher intent, if the results are fairly similar in serch intent, then I'd change the original article, if thy are different I'd create a new article targeting the second keyword and then ofcourse link to the original article, within the second one.

My inital bet is that you will find that the search intent for the two keywords is different, but I could be wrong.

Money page? SEO Avalanche content LINKS to money pages, they aren't money pages. I would create separate pages that link to the money page - where the money page is the targeted intent short-tail term. That's what this psychopath would do.

Yes.

There seems to be some confusion about interlinking and what content to create.

First avalanche articles should be supplemental to other content that you are creating. It's like the pipes under a city, you still have to build the city on top of the pipes, you just can't have pipes.
