Mistaggers on Etsy

The mistaggers on Etsy are really making it hard to even look for items on there. Put chainmaille in the search, half of the stuff isn't chainmaille just some item that has a chain! Suppliers that tag their items with every possible use. Tagging an item with the background color just to make it to the front page. Putting more than 1 tag in a line like blue, red, silver, not like sterling silver which is allowed, just so you can have more tags.

I just went and checked out a seller that was mistagging so bad it caused me to stop searching on Etsy for our supplies, well content team has finally made her clean up part of her tags but not all of them! Well that's a relieve, now maybe I can search and not have her items show up in every search I do!

Etsy needs to hire more employees for the content team and start cleaning up the mess with the tags or they are going to lose a lot of buyers due to they don't want to have to sort through all the items that have nothing to do with what they searched for.

I am sure like me, shoppers won't buy from somebody who does a lot of mistagging, so wouldn't you think it would be better to abide by the rules and in the long run sell more!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
