Atomic content structure allows users to select the information they need without forcing them to sort through information they don't want. Information is reduced to the smallest chunk per page, while related pages are linked together.
We build a web page called Prevent Identity Theft consisting of 3 sub-topics of identity theft:
Later, we build a page called What to Do When Your Identity Has Been Stolen.
Now we have two pages on the topic, but no page that is the definitive or landing page. So when users search for "identity theft" looking for a definition, it's unclear where to go.
In this model, we:
Users can easily find the atom of content they need. These atomic pages link back to the topic page, creating a molecule of interlinked content.
Atomic structure allows users to quickly locate what they need at a particular moment.
