Have you seen the "shopping" link at the top of the Google search page?

Have you noticed the "Shopping results for XXXX" at the top of the Google search results?

To have your items show up in those specialized results you need to upload your items to Google's free advertising program--the feature is called "Google Base".

There's a great website, Let's Ets, which enables you to upload your Etsy items free and easy.

There have been tons of threads on getting your items into Google Base, and after many sellers needed more detailed instructions on using Let's Ets to get their items into Google Base, I put together a tutorial on our blog to walk you through it:

Let’s Ets and Google Base

There's also some basic info about Google Base, some what-to-expect info and trouble shooting info in the blog post.

It only takes 10 minutes--so don't just bookmark this thread--try it now!

I really hope it is fixed soon, I know I haven't updated in well over 31 days, I didn't realize they expired.
