Thought for the Day - Most Important Keywords

Do you have an Etsy shop? Do you waste hours writing & rewriting listing descriptions, updating tags, faffing about with style attributes, changing titles, trying to identify keywords and place the most important first? This is especially challenging for jewelers - I mean, just how many different ways can you say "sterling silver necklace". Keywords have always been an issue, but yet another round of frantic edits has been triggered by relevancy becoming the default Etsy search, rather than recency. The hilarious cartoon strip below by Bingly sums up my frustration perfectly!

Someone once said that comments are like chocolates - you can never eat just one. As a chocoholic, I love to dip into your replies, and always respond to as many comments as I can!
