A simple Google search for 'online product categorization' reveals a wealth of scholarly articles and research that highlight the importance of item categorization as a driver of success for an enterprise ecommerce store. A robust system of online product categorization is beneficial to an ecommerce website in three distinct ways:
Improved Customer Experience:
When a prospective customer visits your online store, there is no representative present to ask: "Can I help you find anything today?" Your ecommerce website must categorize products in a way that intuitively answers any questions about the location of specific products.
For enterprise ecommerce websites with a multitude of product types and lines, a limitation on product categorization can drastically reduce the amount of products sold simply because their customers are unable to find what they're looking for. A well planned product categorization strategy mitigates customer frustration, increases conversion rates and raises overall revenue.
Higher Product Page Rankings in Search Engines:
Much of the thinking behind Google's search ranking algorithm involves scoring pages with a better user experience higher than those that confuse or frustrate website visitors. As such, a user friendly ecommerce website product categorization strategy can actively improve the rankings of store products.
With a staggering 73% of mobile shoppers and 90% of desktop ecommerce shoppers with research a product online before a purchase, making SEO friendly site design through common-sense categorization a detail not to be overlooked. Additionally, categorization using SEO friendly keywords can also improve ecommerce website product rankings in search results.
Increased Organizational Efficiency:
For enterprise level ecommerce websites, employees are constantly changing, adding or updating product pages for a variety of reasons. With large ecommerce catalogs full of a diverse offering of products, employees can quickly find themselves wasting time searching for the correct product page within the online store.
A robust product categorization strategy simplifies the process of finding and editing ecommerce website pages for all teams across your organization, resulting in an improvement in overall organization efficiency.
