Getting your Etsy items to the top of the new Etsy search is important for any Etsy seller. With the recent changes Etsy has made, you can no longer renew your items to get your items to the top of the search. Currently the only way to make this happen is to find strong keywords and properly place them in your listings.
This video lesson is for Pro Members only.
Here are the results that I have found after using the strategies I walk through in the video.
You can see that the key phrase earring tree is being searched in the handmade search (the default search). Also notice that my listing was renewed on July 11, 2011 and it is still above an item that was listed 3 hrs prior to this screen shot.
Tressa, one of our pro members discovered these results after applying the strategies in the video lesson :
I have to say I spent an hour last night after watching the keyword video writing down my google keywords high search / low competition and I decided to do an experiment on a small section to put myself high on the page for my key phrase 90,500 searches on Google.
There are 70 pages on etsy for my key phrase. My earliest item was on page 21. Others were as far back as page 40 – 55.
This is what happened:
first item – went from page 21 to page 3 changed tags only
2nd item- went from page 22 to page 3 tags only
3rd item- moved from page 32 to page 1 title and tags
4th item – moved from page 40 to page 3 tags only
5th item – page 55 to page 2 tags only
6th item – page 55 to page 3 tags only
The video is awesome… I did not even think to check on the recency / relevancy on the items showing up high on the search until I saw the video.
This video lesson is available to only our Pro members. It also ties in very close with Your Etsy Relevancy Strategy.
