I thought I would start searching jewellery for Christmas presents on Folksy. I typed in “Earrings” and saw that on here there are over 14,000 listed but when I started to browse what was on offer I got very frustrated. The first 5 pages where basically just a handful of shops and 1 page was nearly all of the same designer.
I then tried necklaces and I found that the same shops were also listed first. There must be such a diverse range of jewellery on Folksy so this cant be fair. I then looked on the best selling shops and many of the shops where on there too, so being seen so quickly by the search engine must help enormously.
I don’t sell jewellery but this must be an issue for those that do.
Does anyone know what the criteria to be first in searches is or is it just the fact that this shops have very good tags and SEO on their listings.
