Last week I talked about Etsy's changes to their search function and Relevancy being the new default search option. I got lots of good feedback from that post, so I thought I'd do another on tagging your items to become "relevant".
Etsy recently changed their policy on tagging to allow multi-word tags! This is great for sellers as it allows us to tag our items more accurately and to be more relevant!
People commented last week that they enjoyed seeing examples, so I'll give you some examples for tagging this week as well :)
for this listing, I used 4 multi-word tags that I think buyers will enter into search together.
These are all "Etsy-legal" because they are still only describing one thing.
Here is another example:
Here are the multi-word tags I used for this listing:
I would like to point out that colors can be tricky. Each color needs to have a separate tag, but colors like hunter green, navy blue or crimson red are all okay. The tag: red blue green would not be okay.
As I said last week, think like a buyer. What terms to you think your shoppers would use together in search? Can they be used together as a multi-word tag? If they are still describing a single aspect of your item while being used together...Go For It!
