REDUX Tips to Artists Featured Here at EtsyLounge

Expanded Redux of my July 28th Post:
Why Follow? If you're a featured artist here, you have been given a free, permanent promotion at this blog. To increase your advantage as a featured artist, simply link to (visit) this site once in awhile to boost the ranking in the search engines. Everytime you link to this blog, you add one more site visit, and because every site visit contributes to SEO (search engine optimization,) it benefits you! So, please take advantage by following, visiting, telling your friends to follow & adding synergy to EtsyLounge.
Promote Yourself: You can more actively promote yourself simply by including your URL when you comment, so that people can find their way to your own site. In fact, whenever you post a comment on this or any other blog, you should always include your URL link to your site or store! As stated above, when others link to you, you score one point at a time with the search engines toward raising your page ranking. Anonymous comments accomplish nothing for you at all, and signing off with your store name will help a little, but nothing works as well for you as posting a link.

In summary, I want EtsyLounge to work for you and for all of us, so please take advantage and freely use this site to promote yourself and fellow artisans by creating those links! The more you participate, the more you will be rewarded by drawing attention to yourself.

You're most welcome, LifestyleBohemia! You've been great with your regular visits and chiming in to comment whenever you're inspired, which not only scores SEO points but scores brownie points with me :) ...meaning your beautiful creations will re-appear in more EtsyLounge features. You deserve a hug from everybody here!

Hi Andria,

I have been a strong advocate and member of Etsy community since May 08. I have tried other sites and my sales always come back to Etsy. I truly appreciate you including my Spatz to your wonderful feature. I have had two inquiries today - that is more than I have ever had since I originally posted them.
Thank you soooo much!
