*One way to manage digital information is to classify it into a series of
categories or a hierarchical taxonomy, and traditionally this was done
manually by analysts, who would examine each new document and decide where
it should fit.* Building and maintaining taxonomies can also be labour
intensive, as these will change over time (for a simple example, just
consider how political parties change and divide, with factions appearing
and disappearing). Search engine technology can be used to automate this
classification process and the taxonomy information used as metadata, so
that search results can be easily filtered by category, or automatically
delivered to those interested in a particular area of the heirarchy.
