Question 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? 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.
