Cross-Linking for Google
I'm so excited.... with some help from the friendly people on the Etsy Business Topics Team I figured out how to cross link my listings/shop home page and what a difference it makes in getting views from Google.
I know all you Etsy alumni probably know how to do this, but for all us beginners I thought I'd just explain how to do it.
1. Decide what other listings you would like to link to your item.
2. Copy and paste their links into your item's listing.
It's that easy-- just copy and paste! I also put a link to my shop home page to make navigation easier.
I did some test Google searches after cross-linking my listings and my came up first on some search terms that didn't it didn't used to.
I had heard of doing this, but never understood the point. Wow-- It makes SUCH a difference. :) I highly recommend you do this.
