Value of Subcategories
Hi! I wonder if the putting sub categories on my store will affect the search engines? Is is better to disregard subcategories? Which is more important the categories or the sub categories?:confused: Thanks for your comments!:)

Welcome to the forums!

We recommend users create small niche stores (a few thousand products or less). These size stores are easier to promote and manage.

With a small store you tend to lose the need for sub-categories.

However with a big store (many thousands of products) sub-categories almost become essential.

I'm not really sure how search engines treat sub-categories. I'm sure there are lots of SEO posts out there regarding that topic.

What I would focus on is getting your category structure set up so that it makes sense to your end user. You definitely don't want a user to be confused when they are trying to find what they are looking for. Your category names should make sense and if using sub-categories, organized properly. Also, you want to make sure the right products are in your categories. Don't add products to categories that don't "fit" in that category.

I hope this helps.
