What is taxonomie?

Organized collection of words or phrases that is used to organize information in order to make it easier to find. Within the specific field of a website, it is a structured and hierarchical list of categories or keywords under which content can be classified.

The construction of taxonomies requires the performance of four processes: circumscribing the area of knowledge that the taxonomy is to represent, extracting the collection of terms, examining the said terms to select the most suitable, and creating the organizational structure for the terms or categories. Correctly establishing the definition of the most suitable taxonomies as the basis for structuring the information on a website is a key factor in usability and positioning. Taxonomy is also the process of categorizing contents, i.e. organizing them into groups.
