So where is our stuff submitted?
« on: September 23, 2012, 05:53:44 PM »
Hi, I'm Nicole and I'm new. And I'm here in addition to Etsy because I want to make things, not constantly wrestle with relevancy and keywords.

I read that the SEO is handled automatically here. . .I know that our items are submitted to Twitter, what else is done? Are we responsible for any SEO here?

Thanks for any insight, I'm glad to be here. I've had an account for awhile but was deterred because of the newness of the site, but I always really liked the human presence.

Our stuff hits twitter & google shopping.  It's also posted to various facebook groups and pages.  You yourself are responsible for your titles, descriptions (and spelling therein), and tags, all of which have to do with SEO.

Also, you should promote your own stuff as usual, and if you join in promoting the products of others, they're likely to return the favor for you.

Post your stuff here in the discussions too, and also at itsbetterhandmade.com.

All items are also submitted automatically to the find. Otherwise everything is manual.
Any self promotion you can do will help your shop as well as everyone else. We have a lot of promotional efforts on the forum as well. There is a twitter ring, blog ring, FB ring, pinterest as well. So jumping into the group promotional efforts help as you'll get more return promotion from others in the group. We work together as a team as much as we can to help all involved. Glad to have you with us.
Other small avenues of promotion are commenting on the blog, commenting on highlights, creating highlights, posting the forum, putting your shop links in your forum profile etc.
All that helps you get found here.

Thank you!

How do I get featured on the facebook page, blog etc? Is it ok if I participate in the business card swap if my HAS URL isn't on them? I got the printed after the fact.

Thanks!
