You’ll learn to…
- Use multiple taxonomies to describe aspects for a piece of information
- Leverage your taxonomy when implementing your wayfinding solutions
- Improve search applicability and improve both precision and recall
- Create a unified search approach for known and discovered content
Do your users like to search or browse? Everyone does both and a well-constructed taxonomy will greatly improve their success at finding their desired content and enhancing their discovery of the knowledge hidden deep in your site.
Implement your taxonomy well and it becomes the organizing principles that drive your metadata standards and your information architecture, and, when you're ready, your faceted search and your semantic search. A great taxonomy will even drive a successful Web 2.0 implementation and help you reduce costs in designing and deploying your site.
To help, we've asked Seth and Stephanie, experts in creating and maintaining sophisticated taxonomies, to broaden your thinking about how a taxonomy can make your life easier, whether you're designing a public-facing web site or a large-scale intranet. In this 90-minute online session, you'll see detailed examples of taxonomy applications and how to leverage key design principles across your organization. Stephanie and Seth will give you a better understanding of your own taxonomy and the navigation of your information. You'll get your content management system under control and improve your search results.
