    Website Linking Architecture

    I attached my linking structure below.

    Basically,

    - 3 levels- home, categories, articles
    - home links to 10 newest articles + each of the category pages
    - categories link to articles
    - articles are the end of the line
    - at the bottom of each article there are "also see" and then 5 links to related articles (that is the squiggly mess)
    - each article page links back to the corresponding category page
    - every single page on the website links back to the homepage

    Is this a good site architecture?

    Thanks, would appreciate your feedback.

    This is a pretty classic architecture and, in my experience, one that works well.

    What CMS, if any, are you going to use to implement it?
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Wordpress with a couple plugins is perfect to implement this.
    I use this structure all over my sites.

    Are you sure you won't go with WordPress than? This:
    - at the bottom of each article there are "also see" and then 5 links to related articles (that is the squiggly mess)

    is so easy to implement with WordPress etc.. I'm sure it will be a big timesaver if you're going to use it, but it's up to you ofcourse

    Structure looks very good btw!
