Valentine's Day or Love?
Posted: Monday, December 17, 2018 1:14:20 PM
I'm making a bunch of Valentine's Day things, which could also be categorized as plain old "Love." If I categorize as "Valentine's Day," will they then be less available to people looking for Love in general? On the other hand, if I categorize as "Love," will they not show up in a search for Valentine's Day?

Thanks,
k8

If you keyword and title Valentines Day products with Love they will be found in the very crowded field of love and because it is massive and overcrowded it will be hard to find under love only. So you should think of less crowded combinations with the keyword love. Same goes for Valentine.

Excellent advice, thanks. But I am specifically wondering about choices in "Events and Occasions" under Categories on the "Post Product for Sale" page.

Hard choice, but for me I would categorize under love in general because that is all year long and tag it with Valentines day since that is seasonal. I also have a store category for holidays that I put valentines in.

The great thing about the love choices is there are different types of love sub cats to choose from.


All that being said, love and valentines have not been huge sellers for me so maybe my approach is all wrong...Idea

Hi Shelli! That's a good idea, thanks. I guess I'm just not clear how the categorizing works on the Post Product for Sale page. Maybe a better question from me would be, How does it affect the search? And what I REALLY want to know is, how do I get all my stuff to show up at the very top of every search?? Laughing

Hi k8coGifts,

Hope your day is going well.

If you haven't already, I recommend taking a look at this help article which can give you a bit more insight on how our search works.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Elizabeth P.

I'll do that. Thanks, Elizabeth!

But can I ask another question? If I choose "Valentine's Day" for where I want my product to live, will that impact negatively on a potential search on "Love" or "Relationships" or something like that?

This can be reflected in your tags description of your product. The search will pick these words up too. If you had a yellow valentines card, you would find this car for example. This only has yellow in the tags and valentines in the title and is in this category, yet came up for me searching Yellow valentines Grin

My advice is to not get all stressed out over those categories as they are just optional and not required. I rarely, if ever, use Events & Occasions or Recipient.
