If you have specific hashtags you're targeting, consider adding them to your Titles or Descriptions on Zazzle Products.

When I share other Designers' Products manually, I usually copy/paste the Description - adding hashtags saves me time, and I'll remember which Designers do that and share them more. If I'm using automation, then the Title is all that's picked up, and your hashtags will help targeting.

Optional, of course, but that's my thinking.

Some of you are pulling really small images that look blurry into your Pins. I noticed because Pinterest showed me that you're pinning my Products (THANK YOU!).

I saw 3 blurry pins, accidentally clicked something and then the page refreshed, and they were gone, so I don't know who you are. Sorry.

It happened once before, and I think it was one of the feed services, so you might check your automated feeds, if you use them.

So if you read the Zazzle Blog, you'll see that Elizabeth contradicts my advice of:
Quote:
Don't be too specific
- "Pillows" is better than "Boho Wedding Pillows"


She even used Z's "Boho" Wedding Board in her example! Laughing

So who's right and what to do?

Like so many things related to SEO and marketing, people's circumstances, experiences, and opinions are different. That makes their advice different. So we're both right! My boards are some very broad (mostly) and some specific. Zazzle's are too!

For me, it depends on the topic. Recipes is a HUGE topic, and I would split that down to maybe Desserts, Appetizers, etc. Weddings is a huge topic, and I might split that down. Decor is huge, and Pillows - used in my example - is already split. For me and my following, I wouldn't split it down to bedroom pillows or boho pillows.

It also depends on my pinning strategy. If I'm going to pin a thousand wedding invitations a week, it would make sense to split thematically. If I'm going to pin 60 invitations a week and they're split across events, then I wouldn't narrow that focus - I'd do a broad Invitations Board.

Like anything, use your best judgment based on your niche and content.

Anyone can say it's from Zazzle that way though.

I understand that, but that's the way to tell on Amazon. If someone were impersonating Zazzle, it would be handled by Zazzle swiftly, I'm sure. It would be their trademark being infringed, and they would have the right to report it (unlike when it's our designs stolen, and we're the ones with the right to report). I can't imagine that sort of listing/infringement would last more than a minute. Also, I can't lay my fingers on it right now, but I believe it was Christine who also asserted that was the way to tell.

This is the only answer I can find.

Q: How will designers be able to ascertain that Zazzle has posted their items for sale on a 3rd party site versus someone pirating their products?

A: Most marketplace websites have attribution to the seller of the product. You should be able to tell if the seller is Zazzle versus some other entity.

(I find it odd because the brand name is not showing as trademarked with an image instead of just text in the brand name section like CafePress does.)
