What is Product Categorization?

Product categorization is the human-powered classification of your products into intuitive categories. Product categorization is especially important to grow ecommerce websites. A mislabeled or poorly-organized inventory frustrates customers and leads to distrust of your company. Customers should be able to find their desired products quickly and easily. Furthermore, a well-designed product taxonomy using the correct target keywords can significantly improve your site's SEO.

Use our curated multilingual crowd to classify your products into the correct categories to aid in search relevance, provide faster search results, and create a friendly user experience. If you are building an automated product categorization or automated product tagging model, have our expert analysts evaluate your algorithm and provide the ground truth for your model.
