    Ok so i have a couple of etsy shops for clients etsy recently change their default search to "relevancy" it used to be listed by how recent the product was listed. Now it is "relevant" the problem here is that it seems that they only have about 3 search metrics in their algorithm (ones that they have made public anyway). From what i have read on etsys forums they are basing results on tags, titles, description of product. Etsy is saying the recency is no longer a part of the equation THis has created a real headache for my clients because once everyone has changed their tags titles and descriptions it seems there is a sort of gridlock and things arent moving around much. I have tried EVERYTHING i can think of and nothing has seemed to work. I would appreciate any insight or suggestions.

    thanks!

    Im still working on finding out the best way to alter etsy for SEO but word around BHW is following and liking other projects will get you noticed as popular products get bumped to the top(ie. more product favorites get you higher results). With that said I have created a dry cut imacros script to go through 11 categories an like the entire first page of results. So far it has helped get my shop pull in some store action. Hopefully I can find someone to help me alter the script to be a little more dynamic. But so far its all I have.

    caliboi89 i have a question, saw that you wrote few posts about etsy search
    when you like your items from search they jump to page 1?
    for example you search for earings, your item "beatiful blue earings" is on page 30 and you like it with this search term so it will go up?
    last week i tried some things and scored with one item on page 1, but im not 100% sure what worked because i tried couple of methods to rank on first page.
