Description: describe your item and list all the features it has. People tend to google the specific features when they are looking for products. The description should also be appealing but brief and to the point.

Tags: Product tags are really important because they determine where your product will be listed on Notebook Love.Correct tagging makes your products findable through the product filter tool on

There are two types of tags; the 'simple tags' and 'composed tags'.

a) Simple tags: simple tags represent the main notebook's categories that appear on the main bar menu of (eg. Notebooks, Journals, Bullet Journal, Diaries, etc). You MUST add a least one of these tags in order for your product to show to customers. They are not displayed on the product filter section of but are hugely important when people search for a product from the main search bar.

These tags are:

  • Notebooks
  • Journal
  • Bullet Journals
  • Diaries
  • Planners-
  • To-Do Lists-
  • Sketchbooks
  • Exercise Books

b) Composed tags: to enable successful filtering, composed tags are made up of of the tag category and the actual feature (in the format: tag category_actual feature).

For example:

  • If your item has rounded corners, you would add the tag “Corners_Rounded Corners”.
  • If your item size is A5, you’ll add the tag “Size_A5”.
  • If your item has lined pages, you’ll add the tag “Pages_Lined Pages”
  • and so on.

NOTE: you can add as many tags as possible as long they are relevant to your item. It is recommended that you add all the tags that are relevant to your product.

Product Meta Fields:  this is used for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) purposes. Product Meta Fields includes the ‘Title tag meta field’ and the ‘Description tag meta field’, and are what people see in search results. 

‘Title tag meta field’ and the ‘Description tag meta field’ should break down what your product is, the benefits of it, why people should buy it and should include product keywords.

SKU stands for stock-keeping unit. It is a simple code that helps identify your product online and within your own stock-keeping system.

Making sure your product has an SKU on Notebook Love will give you greater visibility online and better sales rates.  

As it is Google's policy for products to have at least an SKU in order to be visible on Google Shopping (barcodes aren't as important for them) it is well worth generating one for each of your products. 


Unlike barcodes, you don't need to buy SKUs; just a few letters and numbers that are relevant to your product will do the trick. There is no guide maximum or guide minimum number of digits/letters in an SKU. It's very much down to you. Once you've settled on an SKU it's always worth googling it to check it doesn't have another meaning or have another product already attached to it. To give you an SKU example, for the products we make here at Notebook Love we use eg. 5NBL002. Please read the Seller’s Guide section where you will see where you can insert your SKUs
