The advent of smartphones and mobile web browsers has forced designers and developers to face a tough choice: How similar should a mobile site be to its full-site companion? Too similar, and the site suffers from attempting to force users into a desktop mentality, while too different, and users become confused and the site feels foreign. One of the most important considerations in this regard is how to handle a site’s taxonomy. Will users be expected to navigate a full site’s numerous dropdowns and fly-outs, or will users will be presented a customized layout? Join us for some tips and best practices regarding taxonomies on a mobile site.
