This is one of those long posts.... so sit comfy. I want to tell you about:
*Being relevant in Etsy.
*30 days of posting.
*The OWOA (Our World Our Art) event .
Here we go...You know, with all this changes in Etsy, the "relevant" new way of searching and be found... we all have to remember to have the right TAGS, the best TITLE in our listings and the first few words in the actual text of the listing, 160 characters which will show up in a google search.
In this image above you can see 3 of my ACEO. 2 are on top because I just listed them. The 3rd one is actually "first" of mine to be relevant for this search, and I know, because the top row is "recent" and the rest are older, which shows my newest listed at the bottom of the page, and my other new one is on the second page, which means is not as relevant, even if listed withing hours of the other one.
Simply because the words are not in the right order in the title and tags. The body of listing first few words will show up in a google search, so preferable, they should be related as well.
Make sure you say ACEO or Painting, Doll, or whatever the main item you are listing in the title, tags and or body of the listing.
Sounds redundant and maybe silly, but I myself found to my shock, that I was missing the words in the right place. It's really easy to assume that everyone knows just by the image, but we are talking about new buyers that don't know you. Will they find you?
At the same time, at the end of the day, if we ALL are relevant... are we ALL going to show up stuffed in the first search result??? heheheh Nop, it will come down to newer listings.
There's a menu to the top right, see image (if they have not moved it again) where you can select "lower price, highest price or newest listings)
I hope I didn't confuse you even better.
Now, to my second topic:
30 days of posting see HERE for the challenge 30 Days of Get Your Art On to blog for 30 days. It was to start in September but I will be late for one day. At the end of it all, you will either love me or be totally sick of me LOL Hopefully you all will stick around! ♥ ♥ ♥
And on to the third topic:
The beautiful One World One Heart blog event, has been transformed into OWOA (Our World Our Art).
The main difference is that now only people with art blog s will be part of it. No matter what type of art or craft, but no other kind of blog is part of this. Why? because many people with completely unrelated and almost non existent blogs hoped on board and is not fair that some people have a lot of effort in their blogs and art/craft and some random person runs copy/pasting with a blog (3 post only) talking about rodents in some foreign land. hehehe Some didn't even have a gift, they just wanted to take what they could.
Now it promises to be a richer experience, with a better chance to meet friends with same interests.
I can't wait! Not a day to start yet, but Lisa says sometime in January, or beginnings of February, so be ready!
