Link of the Week – Amazon Keyword Issue

RF getty red lightI recently did a post on metadata and key words. Keywords are very important by way of driving readers to you books. But the wrong keyword can get your book removed by Amazon. It’s not new to link your style of writing or similarities of your stories/genres with other authors and their titles. It’s a marketing tool. But if you do so in your keywords and/or description on Amazon, you are misleading the public and they will take action.

      It kind of goes against what we’ve been taught, but at the same time, completely understanbdable as it protects authors and their works. I might even be considered guilty if the Amazon bots decide that my keywords ‘pirates of the Carribean’ might infringe on the movie franchise or a non-fiction book about pirates that sailed the Carribbean during the Golden Age of Piracy. Definetly something to watch out for.


  2. Thank you for sharing this post!
