What is your opinion about following situation.
The plan is to rank the category pages of an eCommerce Shop. Hence the idea is to put content on the category pages (H1 and small paragraph at the beginning of the category page and H2/H3 and more text on the bottom after the products).
Currently I`m hearing a lot about building cluster pages / content silos.
Within the bottom text I want to include internal links to related topics / sites of the given category.
Would it make more sense to set up these internal sites within a blog or as child sites of the categories -->
1.) category1/relatedtopic1 ..... category1/relatedtopic2 .....
2.) blog/relatedtopic1 .... blog/relatedtopic2
To me option 1 seems to be more plausible.
I would really appreciate any input or other ideas.
Thanks a lot.
