I have a question.
I am just over 4 months into selling on Etsy and doing pretty good as I use a auto renew app. that renews certain items at certain times. So I tend to get a OK amount of views that way.
But when I search sections, say "Art / Sculpture" (browse sections) I always see the same sculptures on the first page. And one seller is always the first picture.
How and why are these sellers always at the front of the browse sections. Is it because they auto renew their items every minute? Or is the search based on most viewed?
Anyone have any ideas how to keep a item closer to the front of the line in a specific category?
Just wondering how Etsy's browse categories place items in order.
Also wondering if any of you use auto renew successfully. And how much. Just amazed these certain sellers are always on page 1!
