Can I ask some of you seasoned Folksy old-timers for some advice?!
In my shop I tend to title things in a certain way: title, followed by description. So for example, my titles are usually something like: ‘Little Hare Personalised Name Meaning Print, christening baby gift’. The title part (Little Hare) comes first, followed by the description of the item and then a couple of keywords as to who it could be for.
But, should I be titling it the other way round to get found on Google and show up in Folksy’s Shopping results? So, should I be calling it: ‘Personalised Name Meaning Print, christening baby gift, Little Hare’? Putting the descriptive bit first, with the item name at the end?
Do commas interfere in anyway too? Should I be just titling items as one long sentence? I don’t like stuffing titles with keywords as it looks clunky, but does it help to get found (I’m guessing yes, but if you know different let me know!)?
If I try to google my listings on Folksy (and in particular under Shopping) they’re not showing up - even if I search very specifically. On many of my listings I’ve included pretty much the same wording as the title in the first sentence of the actual product description - is this how it should be to maximise being found? And should it be absolutely identical to the title in that first sentence?
It’s really hard to come up with completely unique ways of titling items as I do have things listed elsewhere, including my own website. I’m making sure that all my descriptions are different though (I’m not copying and pasting) - there are parts of the descriptions that are very similar however as it’s pretty impossible to change the practical descriptions (ie, the bits about size, materials, etc). But the first 2 or 3 paragraphs of copy (the descriptive part) on every listing is always different to elsewhere.
Is there something I’m doing wrong, or would my Folksy titles (and therefore my items) have to be incredibly unusual and unique to even stand a chance of being found on Google or showing up in the shopping results?! Do I have to start making items that are practically Googlewhacks?! Or do I just need to tweak how I’m titling, etc?
Thanks in advance! x
