Red Hot Reds

By Lynn from Urban Pearl Studio

When we create new and exciting pieces of jewelry and start the Etsy listing process we eventually get to the (dreaded) task of tagging. How many things can you say in 14 lines? I have started using keyword phrases that draw attention but the most difficult is color selection.

I will share with you some of the fun names for color that I use and hopefully it will make your task of tagging easier. If you have more to share, please feel free to comment and list them below.

Keep in mind as you go through these colors there is a possibility not all keywords will fit within Etsy's character limits so you may have to modify them. Also note that Google does not particularly like some words like Cabernet or whiskey,  so you may wish to read their SEO (search engine optimization) hints.

SEO is why we do these tasks in great detail. Search engines send spiders to find similar names or terms to what you may have entered in the search box.

Today we are featuring the color RED:

candy apple
cerise lipstick
carmine rust
spaghetti sauce
tomato soup
coral red
fire engine red
lava flame
sangria wine
terra cotta
tuscan scarlet
ruby raspberry
alizarin crimson
tabasco sauce
tomato patch
burgundy blush
scarlet cardinal
garnet slice
cranberry juice
cherry pie
mulberry wood
black rose
nutmeg spice
red ribbon
vin rouge
Mexican red
paprika spice
can can dance
claret wine red
red licorice
tamarillo berry
red stiletto shoe
