I absolutely love your work.

    Oh I make dog beds, pads, stuffy toys and my new Flying Floppy Dog Disc (the indoor frisbee). My shop name is Comfy Pet Pads. I also have a website.

    Jack's a cutie too!
    if you ever want any help or tips, I've been in marketing for about 10 years, i'd be happy to help you out. it's hard to learn, especially the online stuff. I feel like i had to start from scratch lol.

    I hate marketing myself!! I also have an Etsy store and I photograph my two bulldogs and I make greeting cards also. I am NOT computer savvy and I am a visual learner.... So unless there is a video included with the instructions, I don't seem to be able to do it. My Etsy store is My Bulldogs Love Me Greeting Cards. I do okay. Well enough that I can continue to make new cards and donate to rescues.

    Cheryl, right off the bat, your tag words need restructuring. Do 2 or 3 words instead of 1 word tags. Right now for your breast cancer card your key words are: Paper Goods, Cards, Thinking of You, English, Bulldog, Greeting, Card, Cute, Blank, Anniversary, Drool, Rescue, lightning, Breast cancer, breast, cancer.

    This is how I would do them.

    breast cancer cards, i will survive, bulldog cards, english bulldog card, dog greeting cards, cancer cards, cards breast cancer, cute greeting cards, blank greeting cards, blank bulldog cards, anniversary cards, cards with dogs, cards with bulldogs

    Also, you want at your title key words to also be a tag word. This is very important in the SEO world to being found. Change a few cards and see what happens.

    I'm a self taught person so I could use all the help and tips that I can get. I struggle with Google Analytics. I think I'm getting the SEO right for ETSY on being found (I'm always in the top few pages for the most part) but it's Google where I really want to be found. My Etsy store is https://www.etsy.com/shop/ComfyPetPads and my website is www.comfypetpads.com (I have an Etsy mini widget there that directs all to my Etsy store.

    Hey you are learning and that is what is most important. One of my partners learned and she was/is amazing at it. she started blogging and ended up before she sold her blog in the top 1% of websites! All self taught.
    I'll take a look this weekend and get back with you!!!

    SEO is search engine optimization - is what affects your websites visibility. Like a natural sort of search(ex. if i search English Bulldog News and it comes up as the first link and not down the page) and where your page lands, you want your site to be the first link to show up! I hope that makes sense.

    Cheryl, another lay person way to look at it, lol, is if you used the one word tag say "english" or "bulldog" just type that in as s search on Etsy and see what happens - it's way too broad to find an english bulldog greeting card. Now if you type in "english bulldog" you're getting closer. But if you type is "bulldog greeting card" Shazam you're on the FIRST page and the very first one that's not a paid ad, and you now can do the Happy Dance as far as getting more views hopefully. All your tags need to be redone.
