Findability

So What is Findability Anyway?

Simply put, findability looks at how people get to your content and how easy it is to find. No matter if you create marketing collateral, support content, technical documentation, or any other kind of content, you want to make it as easy as possible for your customers to find. That means it's got to rank well for search. SEO companies have many techniques to help you rank higher search engines and beat your competitors, but the goal of findability is a little different. Findability focuses on how people search for information and how to help people find that information. Findability includes disciplines such as information architecture, navigation design, and content optimization.
