We hope you had a great first term. Every month we share our top search terms with you, which may help for inspiration if you are a seller. Here are October's: The top 5 searches for resources on Mash.ie this month were: Oiche Shamhna Halloween Bia New language curriculum Autumn The top two results are unsurprising. I guess this might be useful to any sellers for November to look out for special events that are coming up. Sellers might also be interested to note that again of the searches where there were no returns over 90% of them were store names. We're still working on allowing store names to be included in search results but in the meantime, it would be a very good idea for sellers to include their name and store name in the description of their products.

What did you search for in June?

June is traditionally a quieter month on Mash.ie and a crazy month in real life!

Every so often we'll publish some statistics on what has been searched for on the site, which might help teachers see what's happening in other classrooms, or give some of our sellers some ideas as to what other teachers are looking for. Also, because we're complete geeks (well, only Simon, really) we find statistics fascinating. Although today was quiet (Sunny Saturdays are, unsurprisingly, our quietest day) we thought it would be fun to list the top 5 things people searched for. Report Writing / Comments - 19% searches Cinema / An Phictiúrlann - 11% English - 5% Geography - 5% Jolly Phonics - 5% The only search today that yielded no results was the cinema.
