    Keyword Drama

    16 ABR. 2024 · Let's start by pointing out there is an Explicit Content warning for this episode because of the very nature of what we need to discuss. And that is, words in your Etsy listings that are being flagged as "explicit" and leaving you SHADOW-BANNED!! As in, your shop and listings are still up but they will not show up in searches, leaving your amazing vintage finds invisible to the public and you poorer. Amanda gets into some specific innocent-enough words that will give the A.I BOTs the wrong idea! Whoah there, cowboy. "Nude" is just the name of this color, OK? ********* The Thrifters podcast is 100% commercial-free. This means your generosity is greatly appreciated!
