I usually use 3 tiers, but you can use more or less, depending on your site.
My Tier 1 keywords are the highest volume, broadest, highest competition keywords. I usually have 2-3 of these. Maybe in your example, a T1 keyword would be "clothing".
Tier 2 are like the category pages. They are less competitive, lower in volume and more specific. An example might be "docker pants".
Tier 3 are the really specific, low volume, low comp. keywords. Like "dark blue docker pants for men".

Does this make sense? If it doesn't I'll try to explain it better.

Don't get too caught up with this. As long as all your pages are connected, it should be ok.

Now thats funny... :lol: I only came up with those keywords after you asked...lol And there are actually only two:
"Industrial supply" and "comercial equipment industrial machinery"
I'm not even sure about this whole thing Sean. I mean the site and if it will even work. Since this is my first one, I just dont know.
"industrial supply is searched 32,000 times but has 47 million competition sites
"comercial equipment industrial machinery" is searched 10,000 times and has 4 million competing sites.
In much of the industrial supply industry there seems to be few searching but a lot of sites. Yet the adsense ads pay extremely well.
Any thoughts on the whole thing would be much appreciated because I'm not really confident on what I'm doing here.

Having been a cabinet maker/Carpenter for years I have always been a "measure twice, cut once..get it right the first time kinda guy. I have to remember that "get it right the first time" I guess isnt going to happen a lot when your first starting off in this business :)
I'm definitely going to go for it and be prepared to redirect things if necessary.
By the way: what exactly is internal linking?
And what do you mean by having my pages connected.
Each page will be connected to the homepage but none of the pages will be connected to each other. Is that bad?
Each main theme of your site should be in its separate folder, with each article linking to the next. You can have a main "navigation" for your site that appears on every page and it won't hurt you.

But instead of giving up, I worked out what I had been doing wrong and came up with a plan that is ten times better than my first one.
So don't worry about mistakes, it'll make you a better marketer in the long run.

I'm from Australia, Marks from New Zealand. Our two countries are pretty similar though.
Can you tell the difference between a NZ accent and an Aussie one? Or do we sound the same to you?
