Front Page of Etsy Statistics...

Ok, so I finally made it to the front page of Etsy (yea!) at 5 pm EST today, May 8, 2008.

This was originally a treasury from Treasury West and I don't believe there were more than 20 views or 6 comments when it hit the front page.


Here is what I gained...I thought I would post it for all to see. Perhaps you can post your experiences as well.


I was on the front page for exactly one hour... 5 pm to 6 pm EST.


Increase in shop views to the tune of ...309
Increase in shop hearts...13
Increase in hearts on the item itself...6

The t-shirt and the earrings sold while this treasury was on the front page....my piece did not sell and as of now...7:41 pm, I have not sold anything new since this was front and center.
So...those are the facts, Jack!


Here is the front page from a screen shot I took when it went up at 5 pm EST....that's me...top right hand corner.

Congrats! I always wondered how front page helps on exposure and sales.
I am always worried that the day I hit the front page, my shop won't be stocked!
Congrats and thanks for sharing the data...
