Listing Categories shows you all of the categories and subcategories you selected when listing your items on Etsy.
Use this feature to assess and improve how your items are categorized. Using all of the categories and subcategories that are relevant to each listing explains to Etsy what your listing is. This helps your items appear in Etsy search more frequently.
How to Use
In the Main Menu, click Listings and then Categories.
Free members can view their top 100 active listings, Basic members can view their top 200 active listings, Pro members can view their top 4000 active listings, and Expert members can view their top 5000 active listings.
Use the list of your shop’s listings to view the following information:
- Listing Title: the title of your listing
- Listing ID: a unique ID number assigned by Etsy to your listing
- SKU: a unique ID you can add to each of your listings to help manage and keep track of your stock
- Categories: the category and subcategories you have assigned to your listing
Adding more specific categories will give you more opportunities to match with a search. When you add specific subcategories to your listing, your items are included in all the categories those subcategories are nested within.
Sort your data using the small gray arrows at the top of each column.
Use the Filter field in the blue bar to filter specific listings.
Click the orange Export button to export or print the list for future reference.
Click the Listing Audit button, title, or ID on any listing to run an in-depth analysis of its images, tags, description, and more. This feature shows you how well your listing complies with the guidelines found in Etsy’s Seller Handbook: Ultimate Guide to Search and Google’s Webmaster Guidelines.
