Monitor

Quick Summary

This tool monitors for up to 14 days whether your listings appear on the first two pages of Etsy for a given search term. Standard eRank members can use Monitor to track one search term at a time; PRO members can track up to 20 search terms at once. Note: Once you have added a keyword to the Monitor tool please allow 48 hours for the site to start collecting data.

Benefits

With this report, you can more easily track how designated search terms are performing. The terms will be searched in relation to your listings and their position tracked. Thus, you can better understand trends in relation to your own listings.

How to Use

To add search terms to the Monitor tool choose Shop > Monitor from the main menu. Enter them by selecting the Edit Keywords tab. We suggest you monitor your important phrases used in your listings, and stay away from “broad” keywords like “necklace” as those will be hard to rank for. Instead try “sterling silver necklace” or other descriptive terms used in your titles and tags. Enter your search terms and be sure to click the Save Keywords button.

Allow 24-48 hours for eRank to gather data for you. Once data has been gathered, you’ll see them in the All Keywords and the Your Keywords tabs. The Other Keywords tab will show search terms other eRank members are tracking for which your listings are ranking in the top 100 listings of a given Etsy search. All Keywords combines both your keywords and those of other eRank members. Select the Edit Keywords tab to add, edit, or delete search terms you want to monitor. (Be sure to click the blue Save Keywords button after you change your keywords.) 48 hours after you first enter keywords in the Monitor tool, you’ll see a Spotted on Etsy button appear on your Dashboard, which is a nice reminder that your listings are ranking on Etsy’s first pages for these search terms. Clicking the Spotted on Etsy button will move you to the All tab in the Monitor tool.

In the Monitor Tab, on the left side it displays an interactive graph. PRO members can use the Search Terms drop-down menu to select any one search term to see just its data graphically displayed and how its ranking changed day to day over the past 14 days. You will see a line for each listing of yours that was found for this search term. If you hover over a dot on the graph, a popup will appear showing your listing’s thumbnail, its title and listing ID; in bold you’ll see the search term which surfaced it, on what Etsy page it appeared, its rank on that page, and the date.

On the right, you will see a report showing a roster of your listings that appeared in Monitor’s search for your keyword(s). Here, you can use the Filter feature to view just listings with a particular word or phrase. You can sort the results alphabetically by title or by Views count. To view results on the graph by the word you’ve entered in the Filter text box, or to see a particular listing or set of listings charted on the graph, you can toggle the check marks in the Filter column.
