The User Experience (UX) Strategist will be responsible for
collaborating with other UX team members and the Creative and
Technology teams to define the overall User Experience for a given
project. The UX Strategist will work to understand user goals,
business goals, technology parameters and design constraints to
create a user experience that will deliver success.
I'm creating a very large e-commerce site that's expected to
eventually have tens of thousands, perhaps more, entries. It is for
an industry that is heavily categorized, but every supplier has
totally different categories, so they effectively become meaningless.
So we're going to put it all together without categories, or at least
without a category tree model. It's search engine only, baby. All
those former categories are now keywords, effectively allowing one
item to be in dozens of categories.
I'm worried about how sites like Google will index ours. Even if
Site Map: I have been wondering how important the link "Site Map" is which I
am planning to do away with on a corporate website?
What I am looking at is to have those few sections and their sub-links
upfront at the bottom of the page for all the subsequent pages besides the
home page. Is this going to be too much information for the user to handle?
I need all the advice you can give regarding this.
"A long time ago, it became fashionable, even recommended, to disable
menu items when they could not be used.
Don't do this. Users see the disabled menu item that they want to
click on, and are left entirely without a clue of what they are
supposed to do to get the menu item to work.
