I'm just speculating, but to get your treasury on the front page your first 3 photo's are crucial. I've also been told by another seller that etsy likes not only variety in pricing, but also they look at variety in photo perspective-for example, full view, close up, angled shots, etc. Please let me know if I'm wrong. Just want to help some people out. =)

You are 100% correct.

yes I have heard the first 3 are the most important.

I think you are right, but also variety in products, linking theme (seen arrow theme, lumberjack, wood etc), neutral colours with an odd splash of colour. Promote really well and get all featured artists to promote like crazy so it stays near the top to be spotted.

I kind of just stumbled upon the first 3 photos thing while browsing treasuries actually. It's kind of common sense that you would click on the treasury that have appealing photos. =)

Heh, it sounds like you're thinking about the front page of the Treasury itself. Our algorithm to determine how these are ranked is based on how many clicks, comments a list receives also how many times it is shared.

For more on how Treasuries are chosen for the front page of Etsy, one of our curator's Emily shed a little light, here:
