Using Tags to Get Found in Search

A tag is a word or short phrase that describes your item. Etsy matches tags with shoppers' searches to find relevant results. 

To improve where your items are appearing on Etsy, be sure to use your tags when listing your items!

  • You can use up to 13 tags per item listing. A single tag can be a short descriptive phrase (for example: "silver earrings").

  • Make sure your listings are tagged only with accurate and relevant words.

When tagging your items please review and follow:

Adding or Updating Tags

To add or change the tags to an existing listing:

1.) Go to Your shop > Quick links > Listing Manager and find the item(s) you'd like to update.

2.) Click the gear icon of the item and select Edit from the menu.

3.) Once on the listing page, scroll down to the Search Terms section.

4.) Add some tags that best describe your item!
