Quick Hints for a GREAT Title
- Think about how a shopper would be searching for your product. Would they be looking for a year of production or type of product? Do they care about the size or of the product? Then include it in the title.
- Do a quick Google search on your product. What does Google auto-finish your search with? Those are GREAT terms to include in your title to improve SEO value (what search engines use to ‘find’ your product).
- Only include the MOST important information in the title. The rest can be included in the description.
- By law, you cannot use “Antique” as a description unless your product is at least 100 years old. And “Vintage” cannot be used to describe your product until your product is at least 20 years old.
- ALWAYS check your spelling!
