Getting found among the cybershelves

Keywords. Metatags. Search words. They all mean the same thing.

If your book is getting lost among the thousands and thousands of books available on Amazon, review your keywords. Certain words automatically enter your book into a more specific category. For instance, if you include the keyword “Inuit,” your book will automatically be listed under History/Americas/Canada/First Nations. In fact, that is the only way your book will be listed there.

There are specific search keywords that must appear in your setup. That is true for all of these categories:

  • Biographies & Memoirs
  • Business & Money
  • Children’s eBooks
  • Comics & Graphic Novels
  • Erotica
  • Health, Fitness, & Dieting
  • History
  • LGBT
  • Literature & Fiction
  • Mystery, Thriller, & Suspense
  • Religion & Spirituality
  • Romance
  • Science Fiction & Fantasy
  • Teen & Young Adult
  • Textbooks
  • Travel

If you are self-publishing your work, or paying someone to assist you, a thorough knowledge of the search keyword process is critical. Otherwise, no one will find your book. You will disappear into the cybershelves.
