Hi everybody,
yesterday, my book went live
i searched for it with the keywords, it did not appear
i offered it 5 days for free and then made a search filtered by price from the lowest, i still couldn t find it.
What s wrong?

Double-check that your keywords/short phrases are separated by commas.

Did you search by title or author - sometimes a new book appears way, way down the listings because it has no track record yet - well, because it's new a lot of books will appear first and so on down the list. Unless you have some kind of unique search words ??

It takes a few days for the system to catch up with itself.

hi :)
thank you all, yeah, apparently it takes time to update ...

since my last post i added my book on createspace with a different price and i selected amazon.com as one of the distribution channels.
this morning, i went on amazon and i found that the book ranks 1st when i use my keywords, which is perfect, with the mention "prime" and it displays all the data as inserted in createspace.

as for the kindle version, it still does not appear with the keyword search.... but in my reports they say that 16 free copies were ordered (i m offering a 5 day promotion), i dunno how those people found the book....a complete mystery...

and another thing, normally the kindle is automatically linked with the print version... but they are not or not yet.... i ll let is "soak" for some more days and see what happens...

"normally the kindle is automatically linked with the print version"

This usually takes 2-3 days. Especially if you're using a middle initial and it shows in one spot but not the other. If, after a week, they don't link, do the "Contact Us" bit.
