Definition

An attribute used in conjunction with other attributes and categories on eCommerce sites to refine displayed products.

Facets are similar in function to navigation attributes and filters. However, facets are typically indexed, meaning they can be followed by search engines. Facets can improve product findability and are applicable for search engine optimization. Some examples of facets could include "Brand" for appliances, "Subject" for books, or "Location" for restaurants.
