Tidbits on making your website better...maybe :)

I've been soaking up all the information I can from the etsy community forums and ran across this neat piece of info:

This is a report tool that "grades" your website on its set up, announcement line, how google finds it, etc, etc. So my grade came to be in the 67th percentile... but it also told me all of the etsy buttons like add to cart, the etsy logo at the top, etc were not attached to anything and bringing my score down. It also said my score was brought down because I have too many pictures.... so maybe it is not the best tool in the world, but it seemed neat at the time. (That could also be because it makes about the same amount of sense to me as Google Analytics.)

I did notice at the end of the report that apparently I do not show up on any google search at all, so I guess I need to figure that out by the end of the week, huh?

Just curious, did you use the grader for your shop or your blog? You might find more benefit if you try it on your blog...there's not much we can change about the Etsy shop setup/appearance. Congrats on opening your shop! What about a link to it on here so people can browse your creations?

Oh, thank you! It didn't occur to me to try it on the blog. I'm still trying to figure out how to get my etsy shop linked to the blog. (I am a bit slow in the technical department.) Truthfully, I haven't even figured out how to put a picture in the blog, but I was hoping to get that figured out this week (and by next week figure out how to link the shop w/ pictures to the blog - much like how nicely yours is set up).
