My analytics tell me that very few of my customers ever navigate or try to navigate using my category tree.
I have around 6000 products on my site, so categorisation is one of my biggest problems. New products might not fit into existing categories and I would have to have 500+ categories to properly categorise each product.
What I was thinking is to get rid of the categories totally. Just have one big root category with 6000 products in it and allow users to navigate using a search box and also a tag cloud.
I wonder if the communit has any opinions on the side effects of doing this? I am especially interested in whether you think this would have affects on SEO and on general system performance.
Is this a crazy idea?
