In episode 271 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about the point of siloing the category if it is being redirected to the main target page.
The exact question was:
Hi guys, support told me to ask this question in here, thanks: I was going over the battleplan training and am confused on the categories. It was said we should do this: “”Permalink structure /%category%/%postname%/ Create main location pages to silo. Create category with same slug as page Setup 301 redirect to send the category page to the main target page.”” What's the point of creating the category if we are just 301'ing it to the page?
