I have been trying to converting my large html (dreamweaver made) web site to wordpress for over a year and a half. Its been a painful process.
With this conversion, I will have to change the site's current messy structure, but I am not sure which format would be best in order to take advantage of WordPress features (ie. a sidebar hierarchical navigation)
My current html structure is
My dilemma is whether I should change the structure to:
Option # 1
Option # 2
I think the search engines would prefer option # 1, but I don't know whether I would be able to create a shared menu whereby all of the other pages for this widget could be linked. For example, if someone is reading a destination review of XYZ, I would like them to easily access the destination guide for XYZ. Would I be able to do something with taxonomies?
With option # 2, the important keyword (ie. widget reviews, widget hotels) would be at the end of the link. Not so good for search engines I believe.
What do you think? Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated!
