WordPress gives you the ability to sort your content in a hierarchy.

When creating Posts, you use Categories, but when you create Pages, you will use parent Page Attributes.

Our main page is called the Money Page, which will have all your keywords.

And when we create our support pages, we link them to our main page.

For every website we build, we create money page or Parent Page and at least five support pages to boost its relevance.

We must use our money page as our homepage.

To start, we will create only five support pages, but over time, you will create more and more support pages.

Remember, the money is in the keywords, the more content we create, the more keywords we rank for and the more it will reach other spaces all over the internet.

And supporting pages, which are your contextual keywords.
