Default Everytime someone links to an Etsy shop...

Or any website for that matter.....

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!

I've thought of that so many times... it is better to tell us what to search for or to space out the link so it doesn't turn into a live link... then we can put it back together and using a new tab paste it in our browser.

That's an excellent point! Most people don't think of this, and I'm sure we all want to keep this forum as secret as possible (so we can keep our edge in the market)! Thanks for the great post

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).

I think that's a good idea about spacing out the link so that it doesn't show as an active link. Perhaps even leave the spacing as is and replace the .com part with dot com. That might make it a little easier for those that copy and paste.

wouldnt it still show on analytics...just not show a link to the actual thread. Analytics tracks the site that you were previously on before going to etsy. So wouldnt you have to go to another page..then enter etsy?? Or am I completely wrong???
