Second Pillar Page Completed

Last Update: July 12, 2019

I finished my second pillar page for my new website created for the current Super Affiliate Challenge.

My website strategy is to organize content around a handful of authority-type pillar pages.

Other key elements of my strategy are:
  • Write long-form pillar content of 7,000-10,000 words around overarching two-word keywords. The content will be SEO content, but the intent is not high SERP. Pillar page keywords will be high volume search terms.
  • Write sub-topic posts related to the pillar page. Some will be long-form up to 3,000 words. My overall sub-topic cluster of posts goal is an average of 1,900 words. Some posts will focus on long-tail keywords.
  • Write sub-sub-topic posts related to sub-topic posts of varying lengths focused on long-tail keywords.

Website Structure

My overall website structure plan looks like this:

Pillar page > sub-topic post > sub-sub topic post

First pillar page stats:

  • 7,200 words (primary)
  • 25 sub-topic posts (secondary)
  • 3 sub-sub topic posts (tertiary)

Second pillar page stats:

  • 8,800 words

The final draft version of the second pillar page was 13,000 words. However, I removed some of the content to use for sub-topic posts later.

Time flies when you are having fun.

I need to consider using such a strategy, Glen, as most of my posts are around 1000 words, Alan

I would considering the Super Affiliate Challenge tasks are to write 1500 word posts.

I like this way of thinking, Glen. So much can be referenced from the Pillar Pages and Posts. In the same light, so much can be added to the Pillar pages. Hope things work out for you.

Thanks, Paul. This approach helps me keep my site organized. Plus, I continually add to my first pillar page as I link to newer content.

Thanks, Susan. It is extra work. But at least my website won't look like a pigpen compared to some of my other sites. Other sites have random blog posts not related to the niche.

As Hannibal would say "I love it when a plan comes together"
Sounds like a very well structured set-up.
