Information architecture

Website information architecture is about organizing the content and flow based on research. The ultimate goal is to define a site structure and information hierarchy that balances user needs and expectations with business requirements.

As crucial as this step is as a foundational part of a website build, an overwhelming majority of businesses structure their websites using their own opinion of what users need or want. However, taking a "common sense" approach without fully digesting and understanding audience needs is a significant UX misstep. Opportunities for optimizing ease-of-use, conversion, and user engagement are often overlooked without a dedicated information architecture phase.

Information architecture engagements often include:

Audience segmentation and/or persona development

User/business needs definition and content gap analysis

Tree testing to validate the proposed site map with actual users

Content inventory
