I’m here with three tips for using tags in your Etsy store…and a snoring dog.
Today, I’ve got three tips for you for using tags in your Etsy store. They’re very basic, but it’s something that a lot of people are actually neglecting to do.
Tip #1 – Use Them All
The first tip is that with your listings, make sure that you are using every single tag available to you, which means, not only are you using every single one of the 13 tags that you are allocated in the tags section, but you’re also remembering to put in your categories, because these categories also become tags in your Etsy listing once it’s active.
If we jump into one of these listings and scroll down to the bottom, you’ll notice that there’s actually 16 tags here. 13 of these are tags that we’ve populated ourselves in the listing and the other 3 are the categories that we chose.
Make sure that you’re taking advantage of all 16 tags available to you. If not, you could be missing out on traffic from a keyword that you don’t have tagged.
Step #2 – Keep It Consistent With The Title
The next thing that has been working quite well for me, lately, is to make sure that I use the same keywords that I’ve used in my title, also in my tags.
They need to be word for word.
In my title, here, I have a couple of keywords. I’ve got candle wick and I’ve also got pre-tabbed wick. If I scroll down to the bottom, here, you’ll notice that I have the tag candle wick and I also have pre-tabbed wick and I’ve written them in as tags, word for word, matching what is in the title.
I’ve also got CDN10, which is another keyword that appears at the top, here, in the title and this has been working really well for making sure that my listings appear in the search results.
Step #3 – Shake It Up
The last suggestion I’m going to make is, if you’ve got a listing that doesn’t seem to be appearing in the first page of the search results and it’s just not working for you, why not shake up the tags a little bit?
You could, perhaps, duplicate the listing. You can copy it, so that you don’t have to change the original, but you just copy 1 and then play with the tags that you’ve got.
Change the keywords in the title and then change the tags at the bottom of the listing, as well.
You never know. Come up with something different, brainstorm, and you could have that keyword that you were missing.
You might find that it brings you up to the top of the search results and you’ll never know if you don’t try.
In A Nutshell –
There’s my suggestions!
ONE: Make sure you use all of the tags available to you.
TWO: Make sure that you match the tags that are in your title to the tags in the bottom of the listing
THREE: Don’t be scared to try some new keywords if what you’re currently using doesn’t seem to be working for you.
