How do I create and manage shop sections
To add or manage your Sections, click Your Shop and go to Sections on the left.
To add a new section, click Create new section, type in the name of a new section, then click Save. A section’s name is limited to a maximum of 24 characters.
for mobile viewers this is especially important to their shopping experience!
(***Sections left empty.. will not show up in your shop – USE EVERY ONE
use all sections available // in mobile view it shows sections with one listing each, so your store looks empty if all your sections are not used. )))))))
To edit your sections’ names, click the pencil link next to a particular section.
You can remove a section by clicking the trash can icon. Removing a section does not deactivate the listings within that section. These listings will now appear in All Items.
To put your items into Sections, choose All Items on this page. Click the checkbox next to the listings you want in a specific section, then select the section name from the drop down menu and click Save.
You can also move or remove listings from a section this way. Sections that do not have any item listings will not appear on your public shop page. You can only place a listing in one section.
Drag and drop the move icon to change the order in which the sections appear in your shop.
You can also add an individual item to a section when creating or editing the listing. There is a drop down menu for your sections below item description.
Now GO TO YOUR STORES AND SEE IF YOU HAVE USED ALL OF YOUR 10 sections..
IF NOT.. make sure you have represented all the types of items you sell and edit as needed!
Want to know what the best name for your shop sections are or just might be?
Just go to your store STATS and select ALL TIME VIEWS and then scroll down and take a look at what your most searched items are under KEYWORDS.
This is a great tool That totally is worth looking at often – to know what others have typed into their search engines to find you in the past searches- (especially informative for those who have been on Etsy awhile)
I have all my 10 sections now in place and feel pretty good about it –
How about you. ??
