They also shared 7 impacts of poor taxonomy

  1. People can’t find what they’re looking for!
  2. Literal ‘web’ of retail content that search engines can’t index properly
  3. Helpful consumer features like “filter”, “compare”, and “sort become confusing to people and misunderstood semantically by crawlers and search engines
  4. SEO becomes more difficult and more expensive
  5. Thesaurus entries are longer
  6. Complications for features like breadcrumb navigation are often so challenging retailers pull the features altogether
  7. Critical services like “coupons”, “promotions”, and “shipping” require expensive platform customizations to account for all the special circumstances and compromises in the taxonomy rules.
