Is there a way to find out what the most searched for tags or keywords are within Etsy?

(I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place)

I'd HATE for them to put out a list of the most popular tag searches, because so many people would find a way to list those in their tags regardless of whether or not they were legit. You think tag stuffing is bad now??? Imagine what it would be like if Etsy put out this list?

Tag appropriately for YOUR product. If you need help coming up with tags, those links provided good suggestions. Also, you can do a search for Key Word Generator. Put a common key word (ie, tag) into those, and it will offer alternatives, AND give you rankings of how those words and phrases have been searched in the last month or so.

You're absolutely right BLSoaps. I guess a lot of people would take advantage of that.

I'm aware of the lists of tags suggested by Etsy as well as the keyword generators, but that doesn't really tell us what people are really searching for within Etsy.

I mean, how are people phrasing or refining their searches? For esample, they can't just put "jewelry" because that gives you hundreds of thousands of results. So then they'll refine that to "necklaces", but again, too many results. So then they'll add another word or words to "necklaces"..... and I guess that what I'm after is those other words.

Useful links. Can't say I have seen much tag stuffing but I know it's a major bugbear for some.
