6 Site Structure Mistakes and How to Avoid Them!

Last Updated: 8 months ago by BrodNeil

There are many mistakes web designers and companies make when they are structuring their website. The most common mistake is that they simply hide their cornerstone articles instead of promoting them. If you have an article that you’re really proud of, put a link to it right on the homepage. Many sites also have way too many categories which actually makes it more difficult to find what you’re looking for. Split up your categories into more useful topics. Finally, make sure you don’t use too many tags and instead just use ones that are directly relevant to the specific article.

Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t hide your cornerstones and instead promote those articles on the front page so that more people can see them.
  • Keep your categories small in size and if you have to, split them up. This will allow users to navigate your website much easier.
  • Don’t use too many tags for specific posts and instead just tag them with words that are directly relevant to the post.
