Making the Search Engines Work

Many shoppers search on Ruby Lane for quality items. Buyers often search for a specific item to replace one that is broken or to complete a set. Many shoppers also find our items through a Google search. Writing a title for an item is similar to writing a headline. Use key words to capture the reader’s attention as you describe an item.

I am not the first to blog about this nor will I or should I be the last. If you aren't actively using Pinterest you aught to start taking it seriously. Pinterest is for us!

Rinker's Opinion: The Peak of a Collecting Category

How do you gauge when the popularity of a collecting category is peaking?

This is a critical question in today’s trendy market.  No collecting category remains hot forever.  Identifying the approach of the peak of a price run in a collecting category is especially important to investors, as opposed to collectors.  The investor’s goal is to sell at or near the price peak, not when prices begin their downward trend.
