    Why You Need Content Categories - So Many Categories


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Many Webmasters with a lot of content find the problem is not so much a lack of organization or even a lack of will to organize, itís choosing the right categories for all those different pieces and pages. How do you decide which topics or time periods to use for your main categoriesÖand how do you divvy up all the content therein? Itís easy to get lost in a hopeless morass of picking through pieces of content, trying to decide where each ought to go. Thereís a much easier approach to categorizing content, even if youíre starting out with a site thatís already rich in blogs, articles and other pieces of optimized text.

    Take a quick, general look at your content and at the overall theme of your site. No matter what sort of site you have, itís likely the pages are built around a certain theme or collection of topics. Perhaps your site covers news, or largely deals in ratings and reviews.

    Once you have an idea of the main theme for your site, thinking up all those different categories becomes a little easier. For instance, if your site deals mainly in reviews, you might want to organize content by categories like Web sites, products and entertainment (for books, movies, etc.). If your site is actually a blog that details your day-to-day life, this content can be easily organized by time period (in this instance, categorizing by year and month might be a good idea).

    You want your main topic categories to be fairly broad. Tight, neat content organization often includes subcategories as well as main topic categories. News sites, for example, often include categories like world news, politics and regional. In each category, several subcategories will include specific locations or political parties.

    To start organizing the content on your site, make a list of categories and subsequent subcategories which seem viable for your many pieces of content, based upon the main theme or topic of the site itself. For now, just jot the categories down on paper to get some general ideas of how youíre going to divvy up pieces of content. This is the first step in achieving good content organization and better navigation.
