It doesn't seem like it Posh- at least not now I don't think
PoshPipsqueak says

OK so according to my current shop stats my #1 search term doesn't come up as a suggested keyword. That sucks. Anything I can do about it?

apparently not, except change your product lines to things Etsy will let you advertise :)

"KEYWORDS MAY BE ADDED"....I'm not seeing this option anywhere...if this is so, please show me how and where??

When you disable keywords in your Search Ads campaign, you will be able to add them back. When/if you add additional items to your section or shop, keywords will be added to your campaign as they were when you added items to it initially.

They want to know how to add different keywords because the ones that are offered up to us basically suck
THANK YOU TINY!!!
ginger and posh, this answers your question, and my own about what keywords are available:

not happy about this.
Your welcome...I mean really how many different ways do you need to say it? I think that they understand the questions, they are just avoiding them and giving their textbook answers.
The keywords I got for specific items were great. The ones for my whole shop however were laughable! "God"?! I have 1 item with that in the title out of 259 items - why the heck would I advertise to a keyword that doesn't apply to almost all my items? Of course I can remove it but it would be nice if we could choose something that would be better.
Yes, thank you...i have read all this stuff I'm just having a hard time letting the disappointment settle in...I mean I've got 120 plus items in my shop...how in the heck can I possibly promote them all if I can't pick my own keywords? All it keeps giving me for one of my items is vintage...
Well no S&@" Sherlock...I sell vintage...and it's hard enough to sell vintage when the default on here is handmade to begin with!!
You know how many things on here on vintage???
To infinity and beyond...

====================

are you using "your whole shop" or individual items? have you checked the key word list to see if your #1 key word is on it?

if it is, and if you use one item for the ad that features that key word, it will probably come up in the key word list.

Unfollow username?

Are you sure you want to stop following this person?
