What tags did you use to 'find' the item above you?

This is all about TAGS, TAGS, TAGS!
One exercise Michelle and Danielle at Etsy Success Symposium suggested was to have your friend or a family member look at your item, then, go to the search bar, and type in words that they can think of to "find" your item.
Well, we have our own family and friends right here on our Eco Etsy Team!
So, let's try that.
1) Go to this listing, DON'T LOOK at the TAGS.
2) Then, go to the homepage, and under "Handmade" (on the drop down menu on top), type in words that you would use to find this item.
3) See if you find the item. If you didn't find the item, click on the item that DID show up, and see what the tags are used for that item and write those tags here.
4) If you did find the item, write the words you USED to find it!
Then, add your listing for the next member to do the same.
Here is mine.

Firstly I had no idea what an 'eyeglass leash' was!
But I assume its like a cord for your glasses!
So I tried to think if I wanted one what I would most likely search under, and that was 'chain for glasses'. or 'cord for spectacles'.
'cord for spectacles' only bought up 3 items!
'chain for glasses' bought up 775, and yours was not there (in first 3 pages)
I then tried 'eye glass leash' which bought up 107 items, but weirdly yours was NOT THERE AT ALL!
So I tried 'Eyeglass leash' (without a space in between eye and glass, and 715 items came up, but yours was not in the first 4 pages..
Maybe its a language thing (I'm from UK) but I've never heard of an eyeglass leash, and it wouldnt be something I'd personally search under.
Hope this helps. :-)

hi tricia. i searched for "duck glasses chain" and nothing came up. so then i tried "upcycled glasses chain". yours didn't show up in this list.
the tags from the first item in the list were: Jewelry Necklace, Wire Wrapped, Eyeglass Necklace, Eyeglass Chain, Crokie Eyeglasses, Glasses Wire, Wrapped Silver, Pearl and Pink, Pearl Pink Beads, Upcycled Pearls, Wire Wrap Necklace.

Wow, that was a lot of searching! Here are my findings:
Karen- I don't see your item anymore, have you sold it?
It's kinda hard to find your shop, I noticed you had the word "ring" and Bracelet" together, Seemed a bit confusing to me. Have you tried these words:
recycled tin can bracelet
recycled soda can tabs
upcycled soda tabs bracelet
Holly- I found you on the second page with this: wood sculpture recycled
Melissa- I found you in the thrid page under this: baby towel.
Raku... It's inda hard to find you too. I searched for this under vintage: Do you update daily?
The Wooden Bee- I searched under supplies and saw two of your impressions under "corks" but not on regular listings. I saw it on the first two pages and was skeptical to keep looking for you because I didn't want to minimize your impression numbers... :)
Linda- I'm not sure what's going on but I couldn't find you item under: fabric totes. Did you list it recently?
Rain- Same thing as with Linda, I looked for baby quilts but couldn't find your shop's items.
Gloria- couldn't find you- Have you tried: home decor art?
Fia- I look at "African Earrings" Have you updated recently?
Tricia- I didn't find that particular item. And I couldn't find your shop under "eyeglass holder" but it may be because you carry only five, maybe listing more of the m will help?
Lynn- This was interesting. I didn't find you in this "recycled fabric denim headband" but there where only a few items listed there. Maybe you should consider adding denim as a tag if you haven't yet (that is denim right?)

Monica: I think you should have 'paper roses' or ''paper flowers' in your title. What about those word combinations in your tags too?
How about "fridge magnets"?
I'm too tired to play tonight. I hope someone contimnues with PAPERandPLARN 's item

I have a vacation announcement in my shop right now in my descriptions. I will be leaving for Europe on Tuesday. This might effect the search results, because they look at descriptions too, not just titles and tags.
Thank you for your time:)
