Yes, indeed I scored an "F" for my etsy shop announcement! Like any (former) overachiever, an "F" is not a grade I'm used to receiving. But I can handle it, and later today I'll see if anything needs to be done about the issues behind the low score. What I really wanted to share with you is the Etsy Shoptimizer.
The Shoptimizer will take a look at your shop and give you an assessment based on certain criteria. Since it is general, the scores should be analyzed with your own business ideas and goals in mind.
As Etsy gets more and more sophisticated on the technical side, it can be hard to keep up with all the little things that go into the search, etc. So I appreciate this quick review my shop from the Shoptimizer.
To get your shop scores, you can go directly to Shoptimizer here, or access it through your etsy shop by going to:
--> "listings" under the "your shop" link in the upper right corner
--> "etsy apps" link at the bottom of the left column
--> "etsy shoptimizer" is towards the bottom of the first page of apps
