Search engine optimization, or SEO for short, is key to getting found on Etsy. Unless you have a wildly popular Instagram or Twitter account, you will need to master Etsy SEO.
Fortunately, Etsy SEO is not that complicated! Here are a few steps you need to take get found on the Etsy search engine:
- Identify keywords that people who want to purchase your product may search for. I recommend that you use EtsyRank or Marmalead for Etsy keyword research. Identify 5-6 highly important keywords, and 6-8 lesser keywords. Importantly, these keywords should always be two or more words, and cannot be more than 20 characters.
- Take the 5-6 highly important keywords and place them in the title of your product. Make sure that the first five words (not keywords, just words) clearly identify what the item is.
- Take those keywords from the title, and, if you have separated them by commas, simply copy and paste them into the keyword section of the listing.
- Take the 6-8 lesser keywords, and enter them in manually into the keyword section.
Congratulations! You now know the basics of Etsy SEO. Remember, Etsy SEO is a trial and error process. Continually tweak your keywords until you find the right Etsy keywords that draw clicks and sales to your Etsy shop.

This week I did up three great amigurumi baby blanket patterns that I think you’ll all love. I’ve posted both the completed version and the crochet amigurumi pattern on my Etsy shop and the crochet patterns on my Ravelry.
There are three designs available: amigurumi baby bunny, amigurumi baby bear and amigurumi baby elephant. The entire set is available to purchase here.
I hope you enjoy making these amigurumi crochet blankets as much as I enjoyed designing them!
As usual I’ve been hard at work designing crochet and knit clothing for my Etsy shop, yarnhole. While you wait for my latest crochet design to drop, take a look at this crochet halter top I made earlier this year. This scallop edge halter top is ready to ship today!
This crochet halter top is obviously a great beach top or festival top. The yellow halter top is size small/medium, C-DD cup sizes. The waist on the crochet halter top is adjustable.
Should I make a crochet pattern for this crochet halter top? Let me know in the comments!
This week I was hard at work on my new knit baby romper pattern, featured for sale on my Etsy shop and for sale on Ravelry. This knit baby romper is perfect for a baby photoshoot, or for day to day use.
The completed knit baby romper is available, ready to ship, on Etsy as well! And of course, as always, you can find even more knit baby clothing and crochet baby clothing available on yarnhole.
What sort of knit pattern or crochet pattern should I make next? Let me know in the comments!
Owls are incredibly popular right now. One of my favourite shops on Etsy, NiciLaskin, run by, you guessed it, Nici Laskin, has a ton of great owl products, including owl stud earrings, and owl guitar picks.
Nici Laskin has built up a great reputation on Etsy over the last number of years. Believe it or not, she has almost 35,000 (yes, 35,000!) sales, and well over 5000 five star reviews.
Now, lest you think that NiciLaskin’s Etsy shop only has owl items on sale, take a look at some of the other fine jewelry for sale, including rings for sale, and necklaces for sale, and other accessories for sale:
I’m seeing a lot of items here that would make great gifts for mom this Mother’s Day!

So we all love pugs, right? Yes. Silly question? Of course.
I’ll come back to pugs in a second.
I’m always looking for cool Etsy shops, and innovative Etsy sellers. Today I found StitchedLoveKnots, run by the incredibly talented Nicole. She sells cute amigurumi dolls, crochet amigurumi patterns, and more.
Back to pugs. Specifically, pug amigurumi dolls. This pug doll may be the cutest amigurumi doll I’ve ever seen:
This cute amigurumi doll is available for only $20.00 on StitchedLoveKnots.
Unfortunately, there’s no crochet pattern up for this amigurumi doll yet, but we can hope and pray right?
I love working with super chunky yarn. Making gigantic, cozy, scarves is a lot of fun. Recently, I posted a super chunky scarf to my Etsy shop, yarnhole.
This super chunky scarf is a great accessory for Spring, and it would make a great gift for mom this Mother’s Day!
If the colours aren’t your thing, remember, you can also message me on Etsy and I’ll custom make it for you, to your specifications.
I’m also thinking of putting a pattern up for this scarf–what do you guys think? Let me know in the comment section.
One of my favourite Etsy shops is TheAveraBoutique, owned and operated by the wonderful, talented, and, awesomely name, Julia Freeman. Julia makes her own handmade notebooks and prints.
Here’s a handmade notepad that I find particularly endeering:
And a coffee print I think any hardcore crocheter or knitter can relate to:
As you can see, Julia Freeman has some really awesome notepads for sale, and prints for sale as well. Check out Julia’s shop, TheAveraBoutique, and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
Here’s a great Etsy shop I love, owned an operated by a wonderful, talented artist, Mollie Burd. Mollie upcycles vintage furniture, and makes one of a kind customized piggy banks, like this beautiful handmade piggy bank.
This customized piggy bank, handmade by Mollie Burd, makes a great gift for kids. Also, I think one of these piggy banks would make a great prop for a baby photoshoot.
Check out Mollie Burd on Etsy, and don’t hesitate to ask her to make a custom order for you if you can’t find the perfect piggy bank for you ready to ship.
