In the world of classification, how deep do you go? This interesting topic came to us from Robb Wolff’s website in an article titled, “Seven Shades of Paleo.” This article lifted up with humor a common occurrence in any attempt at classifying data. Regardless of whether it is people or products, there is a scale and half levels happen.

Precision and relevance are factors that figure heavily. The critical part of any data, regardless of type or size, is being able to find the content you are looking for with ease and speed. A standards-based taxonomy provides clear and concise order to your data, which enables comprehensive search results. Standards are key to a solid taxonomy and comprehensive indexing.
