Product Categories are used to organise your Products into easy to navigate verticals for your customers. It is important to plan your Product Category tree in advance of adding any products. When designing your category tree, remember to take into account future growth plans and the addition of new product lines.
Neto supports any number of categories and subcategories, you can also add product categories as and when required. You can also add or update categories in bulk with a CSV spreadsheet upload via the Data Import Tool.
With Neto, products can be assigned to multiple categories for maximum exposure.
To help your customers find what they are looking for, you will need to create a category tree that is easy to navigate. We recommend not exceeding three levels in your category tree.
For example: Clothing > Men’s Clothing > Shirts
The above is an example of a category tree that is 3 levels deep. If users cannot find what they are looking for within 3 clicks, your conversion rates will be negatively impacted.
Category pages will also contribute to your websites overall SEO. Each Category Page will automatically be indexed on to Google and other search engines.
