Hello. Can anyone offer me a little advice on structure? I'd appreciate any response.
I have a site that is structured home/maincat/subcat/product-detail and also has some right-hand navigational links that allow the user to drill down even further on the sub cat pages.
The problem however that I have is one of the main cats is brands with is always linked to from the subcat pages allowing the user to browse the products by brand. This obviously has caused a bias towards the brand pages in terms of linkjuice and of course consequently the brand pages have always been the better performers.
Its been on my list do for long time now to redress this imbalance by linking back from the brand pages to the subcats pertinent to type of products the brand produces...but I've always hesitated for fear of cutting off my nose!
Does anyone think this a good thing to do or no?
(I do have a bias over the long term that it would be better to focus my efforts on generic terms as opposed to branded terms. - oh and this is not a mega site but its not a 4 page site either, any help would be much appreciated.)
