Chapter 5 Summary/Tips

Content selection can just be hard, so spend a bit of time thinking about it.

  • Make sure your content can be grouped. There’s no point trying to get people to organize things that just don’t go together.
  • Make sure that you don’t include detailed and broad content together. People will just put the detailed content “under” the broad.
  • Don’t mix up content and functionality. It just gets messy.
  • Try your hardest not to lead to a predetermined result. You run a card sort to learn something new.
  • Include terms and concepts people understand. If they don’t understand it, they’ll sort it by alphabet or some other useless method.

And if you are working with a large site:

  • Remember that you don’t need to do everything at once.
