Category Page Use Cases
Product category page
In what follows we will describe the banner and recommender use cases on the Category page.
New from this category
New from this category recommender brings to the user attention new products ordered by the date of publishing.
The configuration follows.
We are boosting products from the same category as users may not expect products form the outdoor category while they are looking at indoor category. We also have increased the weight of the category booster to the higher values. Note that we are boosting products with categories that are the same as the categories of the products on the current page. Thus we got the same three products ordered in slightly different way:
You looked at
You looked at recommender brings back the browsing history of the user. We again boosted products having categories as the products on the page.
I’ve looked at two products from the home category, namely Mud Soap and The Field Report and they are returned on top of my list. But since I boosted, I also got Cydney Plaid shirt from a different category that I’ve looked at just before the soup and the report.
Recommended for you
This is the same recommender that we described on the Home page. The only difference is that we are boosting products from the same category. Here are the products we got:
I was in the Men category when I got this recommendation back. Since I boosted by Men category I don’t expect only products from this category. Indeed, have the two bags I bought before and the Boots I’ve looked at today (and bought before).
