Searching 'Granny'

Thinking about changing my shop name...

Entered 'Granny' in search bar. Got 'Granny' w/15,622 items, shop names w/'Granny= 167. Find items with Granny'=15,622.

Entered 'Grannys' in search bar. Only option was to find shop name with 'Grannys'. That shows there is 15,622 shops with Grannys' in the name.

This search is so messed up, I do not believe it can be fixed. and in that case, they can change something else so we forget about search.

I am anxious to see Weather Report for last month to see how much has improved.

would someone search just "Granny" to find you ???

from one Granny to another. :)
I don't think the search you did for "grannys" was for shop names, I think that was for all items, the same as for the first search.

there are 59 shops with grannys
and 167 shops with granny
What the weather report should show based on postings in the forums, is cloudy skies for Etsy shops and sunny days for resellers.
If I were searching for you, I would use KitchenofGranny.....if I wanted granny square items, I would search granny square blankets, scarves, etc. with more specific terms. If I wanted granny's recipes, I might use that term....

I honestly think people are bright enough to narrow their searches to find what they are looking for, and I'd never just enter the word "granny" as I highly doubt Etsy offers grannies for sale:)
I would hire one to fold my washing for me...but only for one day.
Not a granny here... I just sell them in my shop.... not even a mommy... :)
...what about a mama? (Couldnt resist!)
Angela..hello...I just wanted to check the Granny names. To me, they are sort of overused, but I've had one of my 'granny' names since 1980.

I went back and pulled up 'Grannys' again to be sure...the only option was 'shops with granny'.

Maybe this is something they are 'rolling out' and it has not rolled to my place yet...or maybe it just rolled on by. mildred
