I want to show you my little secret about how I choose tags for items in my shop on Etsy. Maybe it will be helpful for you to improve your store.
As an example I take one of my listings:
The first thing that I need to do is to choose 3 most important words that describes my item (3 generic words). In my case are:
- cowl (product name)
- beige (color)
- crochet (method)
So, we have : “Beige crochet cowl“.
Next step is:
in the application http://etsygadget.com/ I make a search of my items on Etsy for search word “Beige crochet cowl” (in “Shop name” you need to enter your shop name, like on this screenshot -
). This phrase is sufficiently large, very clear and very concrete to find some of my products, and It’s ok that the application have found 3 of my cowls in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd pages -
And now the most interesting, how we can find others tags for our item.
They are on the box with title “Best tags for search tag ‘..your search..’ “. Attention!!! Not all tags will be good for you, but if you choose good the first search phrase (in my case is “Beige crochet cowl” ), it will show you more “right” tags.
So, we need to look on the tags that application recommends to us and choose that we think are more appropriate for our store. Attention!! If you do a click on the “Best tags for search tag ‘….’ “ it will show you more tags. Like on this picture:
So, I go to look recommended tags for me and to choose some of them, like this ones:
infinity scarf, crochet cowl, beige scarf, crochet neckwarmer, crocheted cowl, circle scarf, winter scarf, crochet cowl scarf, cream scarf, neck warmer, fall accessory, womens fashion scarf, chunky cowl scarf and my first tag that I choose myself “Beige crochet cowl” . (Don’t forget to choose all 13 tags - you are limited to this number by Etsy as maximum so use all of them)
That’s all. Easy and comfortable I have choosen my best tags.
If you have some questions – I am here to answer them.
I hope that you like my little tutorial for tags.
