for those of you that are sellers on etsy im pretty sure you have noticed a slow down. im not one to complain about not having sales, but it's starting to be a little like wow....i feel this whole search term change has greatly affected everything i am working for. my biggest customer base is from google searches-new customers that see something they want, sign up then purchase. i check my google analytics frequently (almost daily) and it's pretty much a waste of time to even look- my views are in the -% (negative percentages they are down so bad) i was getting at least 60-100 views per day and now im getting 20-30 and im pretty sure most are twitter people that are curious....anyways, if this is a constant thing i guess ill leave etsy and make my own website...it's def a disappointment when i search for my listings in google and all my flickr photos come up instead.......even if i go 3 months without a sale that's totally fine! but i would sure like views like it normally has been before i feel my shop is just lost amongst the thousands on etsy.
