Quick Summary

The Category Tool helps you find the most popular categories for the keywords in your listing. Etsy recommends that you use as many relevant categories (or sub-categories) to give your listing more opportunities to match a buyer’s search.


The Category Tool helps you quickly identify the most popular Etsy categories for your listings keywords.
