Etsy SEO (and where to stick it)

Now you may have already read my previous SEO advice that I wrote about 18 months ago. This is the brand spanking new, updated and improved SEO blog post. *Shazam!*

Let me answer a few questions you may have:

  • What is SEO? SEO is Search Engine Optimisation, how to get found in both Etsy Search and via other search engines e.g. Google.
  • Why do I need to optimise my listings? Etsy bring the customers to you, you should follow their advice on how to use their algorithms to your advantage to get your listings seen. It’s one of the main reasons we pay fees!
  • Why should I listen to you? Of course, you don’t have to! This advice is free, accurate to the best of my knowledge and my shop is thriving as a result of attention to Search Engine Optimised listings 🙂
  • Where did you learn all this? I read a lot from Marmalead, Etsy and other sellers!Right let’s begin!

Writing Your Etsy “About Me” And Letting Your Personality Shine

Hi everyone!

This post is not just going to be about your “About Me” section of Etsy! I’m actually going to dig a little deeper and hopefully encourage you to make a few changes (if necessary!) a long the way!

I’m going to address your Shop Title, Shop Announcement, About Me and Thank You Note to your customers. These are all things that the customer reads or receives without you ever actually contacting them! If you get it right you can create a memorable experience for them and hopefully they’ll come back and recommend you to their friends!

This post is all about letting your personality shine through your Etsy shop! And keeping your SEO strong whilst you do it!

I’m going to be using both of my shops as examples as they’ve needed their write ups updating for a little while!

SEO Help Part 2! Helping Fellow Etsians To Success!

Hi everyone – sorry to be posting so late! I’m actually feeling a bit rubbish today, I’m sure it’s probably a plague my children have brought back from school. Humph.

Once again I’ve posted on the UK seller networking group asking for your shops that you’d like some help with and once again I got over 30 responses – thank you! 🙂

The first three shops that I helped on last week’s post you can find here have kept in touch and I am happy to say that their items are appearing on the first page’s of etsy search for a lot of their keywords! They have told me that their organic views have gone up – Fiona from PersonalMunchkins even said hers has gone up by ten times as much! That’s fantastic news, I hope they continue to grow 🙂

I have a couple more tips that I’ve thought of in the last week that I’ll include in this post as well as the title and tag tweaking.
