Digital Web contributor and “information indexer” Heather Hedden returns this week with a fresh look at taxonomies in Better Living Through Taxonomies. Web projects can vary in complexity and size. But web professionals could improve the life of most websites with attention paid to hierarchy, controlled vocabularies and clear wording. A solid, simple taxonomy can greatly improve search and findability, so give people visiting your site a solid starting place for browsing.

In addition, thanks to all Digital Web readers who said “hi” during Web Directions North this past week! It was an excellent event, and I’d like to thank the amazing organizers, generous sponsors and high-quality attendees who made it (again) one of the best conferences of any calendar year.
