Default Re: Everytime someone links to an Etsy shop...

thank you for posting this information. i had no clue about this. great idea to space out the link or words.

I think its interesting how many Etsy shops have ads here on HG now. Ever wonder how they found HG? Probably by seeing incoming links when people ask "how to make this flower" or "have you tried this tut?". I get links from HG all the time on my etsy and website.

So, next time you link to someplace trying to make something or get a review of a tut or pattern - if the owner of that shop is savvy with analytics, be aware that they will find HG, and your thread!

Maybe, if someone wants to link something, put spaces between the words, so it doesn't hyperlink the shop/site, and they aren't aware of the link (or this site).
