Taxonomy in the context of communities is the process of arranging knowledge and content into categories or groups. It’s essentially how the content has been organized with a clear structure and planning for members to be able to navigate it seamlessly.
How can taxonomy help offer better value in your community?
Taxonomy is often overlooked in communities, but it’s a great way to stand out. Focus on creating an internal wiki or a knowledge base for your community. Not just that, organize the content perhaps by type, usability, context, questions, and more. That completely depends on your community, but the important thing is the execution bit.
