About Taxonomy

Taxonomy helps you categorize pieces of content within your stack to facilitate easy navigation, search, and retrieval of information. You can hierarchically organize your web properties based on your requirements, such as their purpose, target audience, or any other aspects of your business.

This systematic organization gives developers and content managers complete control over their content and helps users find relevant content more efficiently, thus improving the overall user experience.

  • Taxonomies arrange terms in a structured hierarchy, making it easier to categorize and navigate information.
