Is it useful for SEO to cross link between TOP level categories, let's say I have a Home page and then 2 sub categories, one about green widgets one about red widgets

Should i create a link from the green widget to the red widget or should I leave those are separate silos ?

I know that within a silo i need to cross link ( from green widget 1 to green widget 2 etc... ) but how about about from the main category to the other main category ?

In general, I can see cross-linking from the main menu but not from the internal content of the pages. Of course, each specific decision is going to depend on your individual details. If your traffic needs an in-content cross link, then I'd go for serving your visitors.
