Deep pages. What is "deep" concerning PR and indexing toma
What that means, concerning PR and indexing.
Is deep page this:
or this: x.com/some.htm if it is not linked from the home page?
How to handle over-crowding (is there any “convention” for naming etc…) in first option?
How to handle amount of link on home page in second one?
How did I miss the answer in search engines and in site search here?
i dunno, i'm not too fond of the site search here. goto google and search "site:www.webmasterworld.com yoursearchhere" chrisgarrett
I usually take deep linking / deep pages to be highly specific pages about one topic with the "deep" aspect being depth away from the home page in terms of "clicks".
Widgets - red widgets - - french red widgets - - - french red widgets with basil - - - french red widgets with garlic - - - french red widgets with mustard
My "french red widgets with garlic" page is 4 deep from the widgets homepage
I will re-phrase my question. It is imho important and neglected part of SEO…
I want no deep pages. I want all pages to have highest possible PR. There will be many of them.
Should I avoid organizing in folders, or should I avoid omitting linking them from home page (or both)? to have my goal?
Thanks for sharing your secrets :)
In my mind "Deep pages" refers more to the number of clicks needed to reach the destination page rather than to the folder structure.
Linkwise (clicks), a deep page could just as well be in the root folder as buried 5 folders down.
Conversely, a page 5 folders down could be just one click from the home page.
I think counting the clicks is more important than counting the folders.
But all of that has to be balanced with the user experience on the website.
