Nobody's Lookin' for YOUR Artwork

After reading this Etsy article about more relevant search results I had an AH-HA! moment.  If someone's looking to buy art, they aren't going to be searching by title. The "Title of Item" line is deceptive in that way.  Suppose you're looking for a whimsical piece of art to hang in your office or bedroom.

Something...orange....or maybe blue...nothing specific....something abstract like...paisley. 

You're not going to search for "Twirly" what's "Twirly?"  Even if you saw this drawing of mine at a craft fair or similar, you won't remember the title.  You're going to search for "orange blue paisley art" right?

Twirly

Don't waste space listing the title of your art unless it's a very straightforward title like, "Yellow Flower in a Blue Vase."  Put your title in the description of the piece instead.  There's plenty of room there and you can elaborate about your intriguing titles.
