Taxonomy

What Is Taxonomy?

Product Taxonomy is a hierarchy where products are grouped into different categories, according to their attributes.

Why Is Taxonomy Important?

Data taxonomy is vital in business because:

  • It allows online shoppers and businesses to find products quickly.
  • It streamlines the shopping experience.
  • It prevents shoppers from leaving the site prematurely and empty-handed in case they have limited shopping time, boosting sales.

What Are Some Taxonomy Examples?

One of the most basic taxonomy examples is when you log onto an apparel website. You will find women’, men’, and kids’ categories. When you click on any of those categories, you will notice that they are subdivided further. For instance, you will find a dress, blouse, and skirt categories in the women’s section. On the other hand, the men’s section will be narrowed down to shirts, t-shirts, and pants.
