The Power of the Front Page on Etsy

From my previous post you see that I made it into a treasury that made it in the Front Page.  That tiny little window in time is so important.   There are so many items on Etsy it is very hard to be found.  And to make matters worse Etsy changed the search method from a recency search to a relevancy search.  I think for some items it is a good thing as you will get better results.  But for us jewelry makers it is even harder to be found.   You can imagine even if you have your titles right and all your key words right that is 5000 people are doing the same thing that it is the luck of the draw who is going to make it on say the first 10 pages of the search.  Some customers may not even look down 10 pages.  That being said I wanted to show you the power of a front page showing.  The picture below is a screen shot of my shop on the Shop Lovers online tools on  The little purple man is the visits per that day in my shop, the white page is the page views in my shop ad the red heart is the hearts that day.  I got the front page on Sept 18th.  You can see the spike.  The previous Sunday 873 page views...the day of the mention 6601.  WOW!  This is a big spike.  Everything went up.  Can you imagine my luck and wonder if it happened every day??  I would probably cry as I could not keep up.  I have had a little spike in orders this week.  But you never know what the hearts will lead to later.
p.s. not matter what i try i cannot get my picture to center. If you have any tips e-mail me.
