Labeling your items with the correct titles and tags is an essential part of the listing (and selling!) process. Many shoppers are using keywords to search for the type of items you make, and you want your work to show up in these search results! The key components in this search-and-rescue mission are the keywords you use in your items’ tags and titles.
Tags are keywords sellers attach to their items during the item listing process. Sellers can attach up to 13 keywords or tags. These tags are used to help surface items in search, and they currently determine which subcategories your item falls under.
Choose words that accurately describe your item. Etsy Admin often suggest using style, color, textures and motifs as tags for your items, so with the help of some of my colleagues (and sellers) I’ve come up with the following lists to help you if you get stuck.
Feel free to add other keywords that fit in these lists in the comments below!
