I've been here for about 10 years and have seen many changes in the way we have been directed to format our meta data.

But there were definitely reasons for the changes that were suggested and sometimes they did seem to contradict one another. But you can't blame Zazzle when Google changes its algorithm without notice and sites like Zazzle have to scramble to adhere to the best search engine practices in order to stay relevant and make sure that products are showing up in searches online / outside the Z marketplace.

But I do agree: their information regarding tags, titles, descriptions, duplicate content best practices, etc. need to be totally updated into ONE place and remove any old information left behind from years past. It is so important for new designers to have guidance for creating and tagging products that is consistent and easy to find.

Last: I have only used quick create once when I first started here. At that time my being in experienced I thought creating on Zazzle was a game of create as many products as you can as fast as you can. Man was I wrong!!
It now goes against my creative instinct to create products this way and found it took just as much time as doing products one by one in the end.

Have a great holiday everyone and keep on creating

This is not a new concept lol

I respectfully disagree. Perhaps at one time this was true but not in the era of the internet. Everyone shops online. As I stated before, my business data confirms this and my personal experience supports it.

I wasn't suggesting they are the only buyers. I buy almost all my stuff online so I'm an example that men are definitely spending lots of time buying.

What I meant to say which I did not convey very well (sorry) is that women are the majority of buyers buy percentage, especially online. I saw this on CNBC which is a survey result by a marketing intelligence source

Women like e-commerce for shopping, while men still prefer bricks and mortar, according to a new survey from First Insight. And by gender women shop on Amazon 60% vs. Men 40%.

Since Amazon owns 47% of all online sales :-)

My wife can tell you it's true. I have taken away all her credit cards except for one so I can more easily monitor the spending trends of women.

LOL

But seriously: from the days when women stayed home and did the household and men worked they have always been the shopper :-) And nowadays women are succeeding in business BIG time and have more buying power then they ever had...

and I think it's great!
