I created sitemaps based on both business goals and user needs. Our team used journey maps, card sorts, A/B testing, and user interviews as part of its strategy. Since most of our sites were redesigns, I was also able to access visitor data, search terms, and heat maps to see which content needed to be surfaced and which could be removed.
