This series of articles started as a tutorial type blog post but there is just too much information for a blog post. Each post in the series will discuss tips that will raise the odds of your item being included in a Treasury. Most of these tips will also help you make sales because buyers are looking at the same things that a Treasury curator looks at. I will be using "Awareness" as my theme for examples, but you can substitute any theme that your items fit in and follow the tips using that theme.

Everyone has different ideas about how to tag your items in regards to color. Some say you should stick to the basics, green, yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, black, white and brown. Others say that you need to be more specific because it helps if you are in a smaller group.

The reverse is also true. Your item is tagged purple. I am looking for something violet for my Treasury. I use the search term violet. Once again the computer does not know about the relationship between purple and violet. It just knows that the letters do not match and I don't use your item in my Treasury.
If you tagged the same item as violet and purple, both true, you would have had two opportunities to be in a Treasury.

There are 14 tags available. If I laid 14 perfectly good lottery tickets on a table and said "Take as many as you want. If you don't use them, they will not be used." Are you seriously going to tell me that you will take 2 or 3 and let the rest get tossed in the trash. That is what you do each time you use less than 14 tags. The additional tags that you do not use may be the tags that I use to search for items for my next Treasury.
