Important Words

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2010 by jillian416

Every month Etsy let’s their sellers and buyers know what words they will be looking for.  These are the words that they recommend sellers tag their items with and the words that buyers search for items  for.

Etsy is pretty up front about what types of things they’re going to look to feature on their front page, blogs or emails.  It isn’t a deep hidden secret, it just takes some research and reading.  The best way to get your treasury to the front page is to choose items that fit these descriptive words and then tag the treasury as such.

Since I am such a sweet person, I decided to do the leg work for you this month and share some of the important KEYwords.  You can see the article I pulled them from in it’s entirety here.

Please remember this list isn’t all inclusive!

  • Halloween
  • black
  • gray
  • blood red
  • dark arts
  • vampires
  • steampunk
  • scary
  • creepy
  • gourds / pumpkins
  • orchard / vineyard
  • woodland
  • Fall
  • Autumn
  • Opal
  • Libra
  • Scorpio
  • foxes
  • bears
  • owls
  • acrons
  • pine cones
  • leaves
  • feathers
  • foliage
  • plaid
  • camel
  • rust
  • turquoise
  • mustards
  • deep berry
  • wine
  • muted greens

Notice how almost all have to do with Autumn and Fall or the colors or themes that represent those so well.  Tis that season!

When tagging items and treasuries it is also important to use accurate tags that actually describe the product you’re listing or including.  When you start just adding tags to get noticed, people DO notice and it really puts a damper on your Etsy reputation.

Happy Etsy Selling!
