Increase Your Online Store’s Performance through Better eCommerce Product Categorization


Most online store owners know that if customers are unable to locate the products they are looking for on their online stores, then they would not visit the store again for their next purchase. Also, it is no secret that offering more products on online stores can churn out more revenue. The same holds true for product information as well. The better the product categorization, the more traffic it will bring, which will influence store’s revenue in a big way.

Whether, you are running an electronics, apparel or accessories online store, accurate product categorization can bring in many benefits for your eCommerce store, right from increased conversions, and better user experience to increased revenue. Optimizing your product taxonomy ensures that your customers can browse through your online product catalogs smoothly.

Online retailers with large product catalogs can benefit from applying multiple categories for their products because it has a positive influence on the filtered navigation. The easier it is for your customers to find and compare a product the quicker the conversion rate will be. In addition, search engine ranking as well as user experience can be significantly improved by using descriptive product categories, which can facilitate application of targeted PPC campaigns and also measuring the result of the campaign based on definite category landing pages.

Product categorization, though often overlooked allows online stores to increase traffic. More categories mean increase in number of landing pages, more keywords and numerous pages having indexed search results. All of this influences the store’s long-tail traffic significantly.

However, no matter how inviting and important eCommerce product categorization might seem, it is in fact a very cumbersome and time taking process. In order to develop an accurate and well organized product category, understanding how your users will search for your products and determining the characteristics of the product is crucial. The information so gained is used to define product categories and sub categories that are incremental in bringing traffic and improving conversion rate. Sounds tedious and complicated, isn’t it?
