Keywords unlinked?
Posted: Thursday, August 15, 2019 8:38:04 AM
I'm not sure if this is a glitch or an intended zazzle change and if so what is the reason and how is it affecting the MP searches? I noticed many of my keywords are no long linked and not in any particular order so half of them are unlinked, are they still searchable in the MP - what is happening with these keywords and what should we do to solve it? Hard enough to come up with 10 different keywords and now half of them are being "hidden"? What criteria is zazzle using to choose for us which keywords will be seen? Crying

At first, I thought they'd gone back to the original method where everything was linked except for Zazzle words such as a product's name or "art" and things of that ilk, but your unlinked words aren't exclusive to Zazzle's marketplace.

Even when it was the original way, our unlinked tags were still searchable. Frankly, I don't know why they'd bring back linking at all. Maybe it's a programming error.

This is expected behavior.

if you have time could you explain please?

Adding, I was happy with the unlinked tags, the links are just a way to lead shoppers away from my page the way I see it. I was just wondering why all of a sudden they are back again.

all the tags are searchable whether they are black or blue, the blue ones are live links to other peoples products which isn't really all that helpful to us... none of them are hidden though.

You may not have noticed but for the last several months we have had no blue linked tags at all. Now they are back but only selected tags and I am wondering what the purpose of that is.

I, too, would like to know what the purpose of this is.

Zazzle has just become one long series of unending experiments!

Hi all, I can confirm that this was one of many SEO improvements on our side. An unlinked tag will function the same way as a linked tag on our search.

There is no change to how your products appear in our marketplace and you should continue to add relevant tags that best describe your designs. I hope this helps! Smile
