Amazon said in question response that tags aren't necessarily searchable. Yet authors set tags and have people tag their books so they can be searched. (?)
I couldn't find my middle grade book, The House in Windward Leaves, under 9-12 children's fiction, fantasy. It came up in a general children's book search. So I set my tags at KDP for 9-12. Still, the book doesn't come up if I click the 9-12 children's search and fantasy.
I wonder how I can have my book searched under its age reference, 9-12? Or under middle grade? It comes up for the general children's book search with keyword but not with the age level.
Well, that's the problem. I put in new tags for my book to be searchable under 9-12. I didn't know how to categorize my book under the age group. So I tried to with tabs and that doesn't seem to have worked. Then there are keywords with Amazon. I might contact them to set up a keyword for the age group.
I don't understand how a book can be searchable by the age group. If you search Children's books, categories for age groups can be chosen at the top of the page. But how does one set their book's age group?
