When not selling and watching the grandbaby, I am listing!!


Listing continuously open interest to some search bots like Google. I read it time ago and you can still find similar comments in the Internet.

Googlebot is the little robot that visits your site. If you’ve made technically sound choices for your site, it’ll come often. If you regularly add fresh content it’ll come around more often. Sometimes, whenever you’ve made large-scale changes to your site, you might have to call that cute little crawler to come at once, so the changes can be reflected in the search results as soon as possible.


About continuous sales as far I saw and read here. Collectibles, Patterns, and some other categories move always. It is the "extra" time that you spend in SEO or promoting or listing that increase sales.

One of the more important things is watching the trends in your store. After passing them by for years, I started listing a different brand of pattern, and then they started selling at about the same speed as other brands, so I'm thinking, "This is good". And so I track down more and more. This past month. I sold 89 total patterns. That brand accounted for 45 of them! But the deal was that a few months ago they started surging past the other brands, so I started tracking what was selling well and would try to buy them to replace what had sold. Last night I spent a lot of money tracking down more copies that I needed and am sure hoping I did not waste my money! But if they had never upticked in frequent sales I wouldn't have noticed that they are my best sellers. Our best sellers aren't always noticed if we don't have enough of them to see the bigger picture. We own our stores and we have to be sensitive to what is going on in them and not just turning our brain off as if we are just some hired employee that doesn't care about the bottom line!

It may be July 4, Oh belated Canada Day Maggie the Cat. I don't know about the rest of you guys, but hot here. Hard to believe that in less than 6 months we will have gone through, Back to School, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hannakuk, Kwanza, Christmas. Are you making sure you are getting your store ready for those holidays? This is the time to stock up and be ready to go and many folks aren't last-minute buyers either. I've never understood, a week before Christmas the folks that are asking for help because they have no decorations, no food, no presents, etc. Yes I understand some are poor. I grew up poor, but my mom would have walked down the street naked than announced to the world that she didn't have any Christmas stuff because she threw it out after last Christmas or after her last move! I've seen the piles in front of houses after someone has moved and almost everytime, you see their Christmas stuff. But for those that are going to be buying online, the quicker you get it listed, the better your chance of selling it.

Does branding count in Google attributes? I am new and getting used to the ease of posting items. But in my case the minimum I need to get my things onto Google Shopping is "color". Comments?

@ MooreGiftsandJewelry, Welcome to the eCRATER forum. If you have questions about the use of Google Attributes in your store, you should start your own topic. It makes it easier for other sellers to find your question and the address it. Some sellers who might answer your question may pass up a 5 page topic of discussions.

I have since closed that shop and opened a new one called "Nagrasanti". I am posting new items every day and visiting the Google Attributes threads. I am on the fence about Google Checkout since then. I will study these more and see what happens.

Google Checkout is no longer active for us at this point. Nor does it have anything to do with attributes.

You have your choice of PP and Stripe which I have never had trouble with and that is with over $10K in money processed.
