Hello World: The Cisco.com Web Experience
This is a new blog about Cisco.com, from some energetic members of the Cisco.com team.Cisco.com is comprised of around two million total pages, covering 6,000 products in 470 families in 18 categories (with 20,000+ product-related pages alone). Our sites sport hundreds of embedded videos (a number growing all the time), countless podcasts and subscription videos on many interesting topics, and scads of technical discussions. And, there are 74 country sites… hosted in 35 languages. As you can imagine, there are some mighty challenges to running a web site like this and keeping the design and content fresh: We’ll be writing about these, and we’ll give you some ideas about how to solve similar design and development puzzles you might have on your own web sites. Some of the things we’re planning to write about are: — All of the continuing improvements we’re making to the Cisco.com site (so you can keep track and make sure you’re not missing anything) –Behind-the-scenes notes about how we design and develop things with you in mind –Trends on the web, especially around the human network and user experience –Periodic sneak previews of early beta features on Cisco.comPlease feel free to chat with us via the comments on this blog, and via your continuing comments into the web sites. We’re listening!
