Does anyone know how to get your etsy items to pull up in Google?  When you google “skyrim apothecary satchel,” it pulls up two of my pictures – but neither are the Etsy item.  When you add “etsy” to the search criteria, it pulls up something with the same item description but a completely different (and WAAAAAY uglier) item.  So.  Maybe it just needs to be more popular before Google will recognize it, I don’t know.

  1. It’s all about the SEO. Check out these suggestions: https://blog.etsy.com/en/2013/4-ways-to-improve-your-seo/

    The words in your listing title and shop front and “About” page are pretty important—sadly it seems like you have to be a little verbose—and link your shop (and individual listings) to other pages as much as you can stomach. I HATE the self-promotion, but it really helps with getting into Google search results. I’ve linked my shop to my blog, facebook pages (personal [I think] and the shop page), and my Pinterest, and maybe my LinkedIn? And individual listings on the shop fb page and sometimes other places.

    I feel like you can & should consider yourself a business, with Etsy selling, and that will prob help with how weird it feels to self-promote. You’re actually really great at what you’re doing, obviously, so no need to feel weird about it in the first place tho.

    1. Eh, even if I am good at it I still feel awkward with the self-promoting! But, I’ll work on getting over it. I hope to finish a few more pieces over the weekend and then start making a bigger deal about it. Thanks for the tips!! Am feeling daunted but will persevere. 🙂

      1. Can I just say, I completely COMPLETELY understand. My comprehension is perfect. But it helped me, back when Good Work was a facebook presence, to realize/remember that the market is flooded (so completely swamped and flooded) with mediocre crap! Your work is uniquely beautiful, useful, and good-quality, so you’re doing people/the world good by self-promoting a little. It would just be unjust for people not to get a chance to see your stuff, just b/c Google doesn’t push it up the line.
