Using Listing Titles to Get Found in Search

Every listing has a title. It's the text that appears above the listing image on the listing page, in your shop, and in Search results.

Use your title to briefly tell shoppers what your item is.

When someone searches on Etsy, the system looks at listing titles, along with tags and categories. The first few words of listing titles have an especially strong influence on Etsy Search.

Only place words and phrases buyers will search for in your listing title. If you're selling artwork, place the title of your piece in the description instead of the listing title.

While titling your items, also keep in mind how other search engines off Etsy will find and display your items. Learn more about Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
