Parent / child page URLs for pillar / subtopic pagesSOLVE
Jan 25, 2021 5:51 AM
I'm trying to create a parent-child page URL structure for our pillar / subtopic pages.
I can't see how to do it and I'm now wondering if hubspot supports this.
Here's what I'm aiming for:
example.com/pillar-page/ (website page targeting short-tail keyword)
example.com/pillar-page/subtopic-3/ (blog posts targeting long-tail keyword)
I can't see how to get the URLs to be created in the above way.
Unless I create a new blog in which case the /pillar-page/ URL automatically becomes a listing page which is terrible for SEO.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Looks like what Daniel has suggested above may work for CMS pages. I don't believe you could do that on the blog any other way than what you have suggested yourself.
From an SEO perspective, it isn't something I would consider very beneficial, ie there is no real ranking benefit to having the page URL in the same folder as the pillar page. (Personal opinion) Therefore I would pick the best tools for the job. ie use the blogging tool if it is the best place to host the sub-content, even if the URL isnt in the subfolder OR use a CMS page for the sub-content if its best represented that way.
