Question for those of you who also have an etsy shop, are you keeping the same shop name? If the shop name is the same, will that negatively impact a google search?
After reading an earlier comment about google searches, I'm rewording my listings so they are different than those on etsy. It made me wonder about shop name too.

I've kept the same name because that's how customers know me. Both will show up in Google, but my Etsy shop has fewer and fewer listings and may disappear altogether. People will still be able to find me. And many people will check both shops and find I have twice as much inventory here.

I kept the same name too, and also have fewer and fewer listings on Etsy. I have been actively adding items here for the last six weeks nearly every day and am up to 221 items. Check periodically to see if Google search has found me, and so far it has not... am wondering if it is only me or is it still just too early for us to expect Google to "crawl" on a regular basis here. I know the sales are starting to increase here so am hoping some of those are coming from outside Artyah. This site has such potential and I have so many more items to add ... I just want to do it right! Would be interested in other seller's thoughts on Google search.

Same here, Glass Lady. I check Google periodically, and my Etsy items come up but none of my Artyah items do. My Artyah shop comes up, but so far none of my items. I'm sure that will change in the future though and we will begin to see our Artyah items in Google searches.

I also kept the same name(s), Kerioak because it has been my online name for as long as I can remember and started off as my affix (kennel name) when I used to breed, show and work Dobermanns and I kept Rosemarys Memories because I have various bits of paperwork ready printed in that name

Keeping the same name will help your branding, it doesn't affect your Googles ranking. On the contrary, Google will notice if the sales and contact go to one specific name and will begin to react to that name as a legitimate one. That's a very good thing.
The best way to avoid duplicate content is, of course, to list different items here, on Etsy, on your other platforms. Some Etsy sellers do exactly that by catering to different types of customers, ie selling slightly different or totally different items. But sometimes the shop is a "one trick pony", like for example my shop is. I sell only one type of product no matter what platform I am on. If that's the case one should write titles and descriptions differently, using different words BUT keeping same keywords and tags. Copy and paste titles and descriptions from one platform to another is the surest way to kill one's Google ranking. __________________ Knitting for dolls one pattern at a time. https://www.artyah.com/seller/lellemoda https://www.pinterest.com/lellemoda/

Thanks for your responses in regard to shop name and google search. I am going back through my new ArtYah listings and changing the wording so they don't read the same as those on Etsy. I originally had pretty much copied them word for word from etsy but now I see that was not a good idea. I plan to add a few more here each day and see how it goes
Here's hoping for success for each and every one of us!
