Getting the right tags for your products

(Hollie Eccles) #1

Hi all,

As we know the tags we use in our product listings play a crucial part in people finding our products. I’ve tried a few different combinations of tags and keywords for my shop but thought it would be helpful to get others opinions on what they might search for.

My idea is that we share a link to a product in our shop and the next person gives suggestions of a few words that they might use to search to find that products, without looking at the tags it currently has. They then share a link to a product from their shop for someone to suggest keywords for. Hopefully it might help us think outside of our own craftersphere. :slightly_smiling:

I’ll start with this:
