When some shoppers come to Etsy from an external source (such as a search engine or a social media post), they may see recommended items from various shops on listing pages.
We understand that you may not want recommended listings to show up when you share your items on social media or elsewhere. Below you'll find some tips on how to share listings without displaying recommended items.
Sharing listings on social media
If you're sharing your listing on an external site, create a personalised link for your item by adding your shop name to the listing's URL. When a shopper clicks on this link, they'll see your listing without recommendations. Here's an example of what this should look like:
|Original listing link||Updated link with shop name|
Sharing links within listings
When sharing links within your listings, please keep in mind:
- Shortening links to display just the listing number will not show buyers recommended listings. However, buyers will see recommended listings if you remove https:// from the beginning of the URL.
- If you use a URL shortener, such as bit.ly, remember to personalise your link before you shorten it.
