06.01. Information Architecture Basics
Learn the basics of information architecture, learning how people search for information and the search patterns we use.
06.01. Information Architecture Basics Index
01. Fundamentals of information architecture
Information architecture is structured in systems that we must recognise and know how to identify their components and scanning patterns.
Information Architecture 3.0
Information Architecture: The Intersection of Users, Content and Context
Organizing Your Information
Presenting Information Architecture
The Difference Between Information Architecture (IA) and Navigation
Understanding Information Architecture
The 3-Click Rule for Navigation Is False
Top 10 Information Architecture (IA) Mistakes
02. Information Seeking Behaviours
We cannot structure any kind of digital product efficiently if we do not know how people search for information or the digital skills that different demographics have.
The Distribution of Users’ Computer Skills: Worse Than You Think
How Little Do Users Read?
How Information-Seeking Behavior Has Changed in 22 Years
The Anatomy of a Search-Results Page
Large Devices Preferred for Important Tasks
Banner Blindness Revisited: Users Dodge Ads on Mobile and Desktop
Page Parking: Millennials' Multi-Tab Mania
03. Information Scanning Patterns
Learn the information scanning patterns we humans use to define your design based on optical paths and the need for contextual information.
Text Scanning Patterns: Eyetracking Evidence
Complex Search-Results Pages Change Search Behavior: The Pinball Pattern
F-Shaped Pattern of Reading on the Web: Misunderstood, But Still Relevant (Even on Mobile)
The Layer-Cake Pattern of Scanning Content on the Web
Zigzag Image–Text Layouts Make Scanning Less Efficient
Exhaustive Review or “I Can’t Believe It’s Not There” Phenomenon: Evidence from Eyetracking
Scanning Patterns on the Web Are Optimized for the Current Task
04. Information Foraging Theory
A theoretical part that I personally love, how we can know how humans search for information based on how animals search for food to survive, and apply it to the digital product, it's great isn't it?
Information Foraging: A Theory of How People Navigate on the Web
Information Scent: How Users Decide Where to Go Next
Perceived Value in User Interfaces
Deceivingly Strong Information Scent Costs Sales
