Etsy has rolled out an advanced search function, introducing some useful new ways to search the millions of listings. In many ways the new advanced feature resembles the one Etsy had before it's major site overhaul in 2006, allowing the user to search categories, indicate the fields to be searched, and enter a price range. Etsy has also extended the phrase matching capability to all search types, which was limited just to title/tag searches previously.
Etsy has also changed the way it reports site searches to Google Analytics, however, meaning some changes to the way in which sellers can determine what search types are being used to find their items. Watch this blog for more information on these changes.
