1. Does Teachers Pay Teachers consider how often you publish lessons in their search results?
Today, the Teachers Pay Teachers app on my phone buzzed to let me know I had made a sale.
I love that cha-ching sound that the app makes. For a while, the app used to chime once a day, and then lately, it’s been quiet. Too quiet.
But for the past three days, I’ve been able to sell teachers some of my Growth Mindset lesson plans.
- 2 teachers bought my Citizenship lesson plan.
- 1 teacher bought my Character lesson plan.
To be perfectly honest, I have no idea why the sales stopped, and why they just picked up this week.
I wonder if it has to do with publishing a Communication Lesson plan last week on the Educircles Teachers Pay Teachers store.
I think most of my lesson plan sales come from within the TpT website – so teachers already on the site click my product when it shows up on a search result list.
The thing is, I have no idea which search terms led these teachers to my product page.
Teachers Pay Teachers must use an algorithm to decide which products to list at the top of a search term on their site. I imagine, they’re a little like a search engine.
I wonder if how active a teacher seller is influences where your products show up in the search listing?
If this was correct, then if I publish another lesson this week, maybe it will drive more traffic within TpT to our product and lead to more sale?
Let’s see what happens!
