Content inventory

July 28, 2009

A content inventory is a comprehensive document that lists every piece of content in a website along with information describing the content, such as its holding page and category, an abstract, the type of media (text, graphic, widget etc.), target audience, and the URL. Although there are some tools at hand to facilitate compiling a content inventory, its quality relies on human editing.
A content-inventory is indispensable when restructuring a website. It serves as content reference throughout the development process and it will be used to ensure that all relevant content is going to move into the new site.

    Benefits in a nutshell

  • Provides complete picture of the website content (status quo)
  • Serves as content reference throughout the design process
  • Ensures that all relevant content migrates into the new site
