YOUR ANSWERS

Selected answers from the Dumb SEO Questions G+ community.

  • Scott Clark: If you`re worried about keywords in the URL, they are equivalent.

    If you`re thinking of site structure, #1 appears better because it hints at a flatter site architecture, with your hats nearer to the home page.
  • Travis Perreira: , THANKS for the QUICK response!
  • George G.: seowise it doesnt make a difference.

    if you have just one category, i would go for N1, however, if you plan to include more categories, e.g belts, shoes and so on, i would go for N2 cos it makes a better hierarchy.
  • Travis Perreira: THANK YOU!
  • Kortni Remer: Personally I would go with 2. It`s more of a silo structure long term like George said.
  • Tim Capper: Do you have more products for men / do they intend to stock in future - if yes - I would go for 2
  • Travis Perreira: yes, have more products...going for 2!
  • Scott Clark: Try to find a way to single-hop-link to your most important siloed pages from home page.
  • Magdi Gamal: It depends on how many pages you have and your silo. That article would defenitly help you
  • Jenny Okarma: 2 because its the least number of clicks to a desired point, This is only if you have other mens products though. It also encourages internal linking.
