RE: [TaxoCoP] Introduction
- Hi Jordan,Welcome to the group. Sounds like you have a broad range of experience in taxonomy development.How are you integrating search with your taxonomy at YellowPages.com? I'd be interested in hearing more about how you are connecting the pieces. I noticed the ability to search brings users to a browse taxonomy. What are the facets of your taxo? Can you give us an idea of the number of terms you have? How do you manage the terms? Do I ask too many questions?Seth :-)

Subject: [TaxoCoP] IntroductionHello All,
Nice to find this group out there. My name is Jordan, I'm currently working as Search Functionality Manager at YellowPages.com. I'm responsible for the keywords associated to the category headings we have, and developing search engine and hopefully user interface improvements.
I've been working with taxonomies for about 8 years, in a few different settings, a non-profit foundation which catalogued testimonies of holocaust survivors, an online industrial equipment markeplace where we developed the taxonomy in house (the now defunct Dock.com), and up until a few months ago I was the Taxonomy Manager at Business.com, a B2B search engine and directory, where I worked for 3 years.
Looking forward to learning from you all and sharing some of my experience/findings.
