I agree this site does not need to look like Etsy. And I think that so far they are on the right track. I am a veteran of many, many years in sales of different kinds including the last 14 online. First with Ebay and then with Etsy. Both went down the wrong path by going public. That's when they started down that slippery slope! The reason being that now they answer to stockholders and are not concerned about what their sellers think. They drove me away 
 with "Etsy payments" which left sellers with zero control over their money. That said, they did get some things right. One thing that is vital for sellers on any global market place is a comprehensive system of tracking stats which we do not have here as yet. It is not nearly enough to see how many views your item has. In order to do any intelligent promotion one must know from where these views come. Also such info as what search words are used, tags, what is most viewed, etc. Otherwise you are just flying blind. You have no idea whether your efforts are productive or not. This is not a new idea. It's marketing 101!
Just my two cents worth!

I'm just curious about the number[smile]!



It looks like you might be right. I check my other shops and I have numbers in them also. I don't remember seeing any numbers before today so may that is what it is.
In my Creativedesignsbybarb shop I also had a truck t shirt with a number by it

I just checked my shop also and there is a number by the listing photo but they are all "0's"  Is that what you are speaking about?  Oh, I hope that does't pertain to views.  The view numbers are over to the far right so why would we have two view numbers?

Thanks everyone, I was just curious about the number as I had not seen any until yesterday.  
Skydove, I just added your 10 santa charms listing to my watching list.

Ah, yes, I see the watching numbers now also on my active listings page.  I have maybe ten or so listings with one watcher and all the rest are still at 0, which actually seems pretty reasonable at this stage in the game. (:

I just started watching your 10 soldier charms listing, so do you now see a number greater than 0 next to it?  This will be great if we really have this feature now.

Michelemade I do see the number 1.  Now I wonder do people view a listing and it shows the number or does it only show if they say they are watching.  To me. this means two different things.

I'm sure the watching number is only for those people who have chosen to watch the item (by clicking on the little "Watch Item" rectangle).  Regular views will be indicated by the views number all the way on the right.  For some of my watched items I might have only one person watching while I've had many more views.  For example, I have one neck warmer showing one watcher and 102 views and another neck warmer showing one watcher with 32 views.  Watching on ArtYah is very similar to favoriting on Etsy.

You answered my question before I could say it.  Things are so much different on Artyah than "E."  However on "E", it was a daily view count not an accumulative view count.

When I first joined Artah, I had the impression that Craig and Laura tried to pick the best features from eBay and Etsy since they had sold on both sites.  I have an eBay store and watching items is very familiar to me and the views on items are also cumulative for their listing period. ArtYah also had auctions really early on. During the last year or so, I see Craig leaning towards more Etsy-like features since so many Etsy sellers have come on board.  I agree with so many others who don't want ArtYah to become a mini-Etsy, I really hope that ArtYah will make its own unique impression on the world. (:  With that being said, I think it's wise to copy or mimic any popular features other sites might have since that can only be good for buyers and sellers alike.

Hi, Lisa----Glad you brought that up. Earlier in the day. I noticed these mysterious numbers + "Fixed Price" next to a few of my items. Now I re-checked and they're gone.

Can someone please help me.   I have had my shop open over a month.   No watchers or sales.  What am I doing wrong????   I have over 100 items.  Is that enough.  How many do you have?  Any sales?   How to promote/advertise.    Any advise would be greatly appreciated.   Ann
