Social Mention

Have you ever got a load of unexplained views on item and wondered how? I have been checking my Google Analytics on Etsy, but to be honest still find it difficult to make head or tail of it, especially since the referral source is still showing up odd things like 'vintage yellow bowl.'

Well, I've found out about a site called Social Mention
which lets you know where you have been featured. You simply type in your name and it 'searches content from across the universe' (my favourite bit!) and then shows you where you've been featured.

You can also sign up to get sent alerts whenever you've mentioned somewhere online. It's another great tool to see who's been featuring your shop and more up to date than google alerts that are sometimes a couple of weeks behind.


  1. Well this is fantastic!

    I have google alerts set up, but I just checked this Social Mention and I found some places I'd never seen before.

    Super! Thank you for sharing. :)

  2. How cool! I did a search and one is really writing about me. Bummer :( I'll keep searching though :)

  3. LOL! Seems like I'm the only one writing about me too :)
