Organising content - classification schemes

Donna Spencer considers a range of ways to approach the organisation of your website's content.

She discusses a range of approaches, and when each might be the best option. I found this a useful discussion (much more so than Nielsen's Alphabetic Sorting Must Die) and liked the examples Donna drops in.

Donna considers:

  • Alphabetic
  • Geographic
  • Format
  • Organisational structure
  • Task
  • Audience
  • Subject / topic
