Today selling your handcrafted jewelry on a website is more challenging than ever. But usually it’s not your jewelry’s fault. Normally the problem is there are not enough possible customers or website traffic going to your site. So the first thing I would do is see if my site comes up on a search for 2 or 3 keywords and what page does your site come up on.
If your website comes up on page 12 for handcrafted jewelry you might have a big problem. But if it comes up on pages 1 through 5, I think you have a good chance of making a go of it especially, if you are on page 1, 2 or 3. After that, it’s pretty much smoother sailing. So find out where you are. Try this software. Its good and you can find out your position for FREE.

Many times you can get enough searches from lessor search engines to make a go of it. We get a lot of search action from Bing, so check this search tool and see where you’re listed on the other searches. It’s FREE.
