Updating Class Tags

For my class "A Beginner's Guide to Fantasy Portraits with Pastel Pencils" I chose tags based on my general topic, what competitors were using, and how popular a tag was (i.e. how many followers it had). My class is over 2 months old now and I have be using the same old tags.

My trending tags include:

  • CRAFT
  • ART
  • ILLUSTRATION
  • FINE ART
  • VISUAL ART
  • DRAWING

I had never considered changing tags to help improve the position of my class in searches. I wasn't even aware of the subcategories section, which goes to show how much I've utilised it. After doing some research I found that my class sits pretty much at the bottom of each of the above tags. Visual Arts only has a few classes under it so my class is easier to find, but it is still at the bottom. Nevertheless, I might keep Visual Arts and ditch the rest.

My new SEO tags include:

  • DESIGN
  • VISUAL ARTS
  • PORTRAIT DRAWING
  • PASTEL PENCILS
  • FANTASY DRAWING
  • FANTASY PORTRAITS

I also change my class's main category from CRAFTS to DESIGN.

I would really appreciate any advice especially regarding my new SEOs that I have selected. Thank you for another great class Neil and Linda! I've learned a lot =)
