Probably the best way is to create a website where you can feature the first chapter, plus reviews and further explanations of the book. Check the latest SEO techniques - the best is usually embedded info in the text of the website - and if possible consider the viewing on mobile devices as well as PC. There's many hosting services that provide free website space...but the best way is to have your won dedicated domain name. You can host on US servers from as little as $4.95 per month. Domain registration (www.yourbookname.com) can also be as little as $10 per year depending on what registrar you use (try and use the same as the one who hosts your site) Godaddy, Site5.com are two I've used in the past.

Houda, a blog will also register in the search engines. These are easier to create than most websites, however to be successful they should be updated regularly and be interesting - often difficult to allocate time to if you're busy writing.

hi :)
Right, time and creative ideas are a must for blogs...
I think I will see how effective is amazon without google first... if it is enough then no need for extra investment... i heard that amazon has over 200 million customers so...

Good morning...
Yes I'd give KDP SELECT a go for the first 90 days, and see how their giveaways (I hear shrieking...) countdown and KU borrows works for you. I suggest give it the full 90 days (once in you're committed anyway for 90 days) and then make a judgement of where to go next. I'd remain with Amazon, but then consider a one stop shop such as D2D which makes it very easy to distribute to Apple, Barnes and Noble and about 6 other major outlets, by using the same source file. (I use Word) This takes a big load off you as an author, allowing you to spend productive time writing. Essential to get another book in the works.

Also make sure you have a decent author page, take full advantage of it as it also registers with the Search Engines...

But take it gradually, it does take time to develop a following or start gaining sales

Cheers

Why don't you do a search and see what's selling? Then you can judge if these books would be helpful to you.

By the way, to answer a year old question, sales is what ranks a book high and keeps it there.

I think you are giving up a promotion means. Google will list almost anything but what search terms will bring your book up? A website also beats a blog because you can control what a web site looks like.

Considering their username, I suspect their post is a clumsy attempt at spam.

Kindle SEO is different to website or web based products you may find on those websites.

SEO for websites and products are based on the Google algorithm. SEO optimisation for Google and other search engines is paramount for get higher exposure than other sites and products.

KDP SEO is based on the categories your book title/s belong to. So, Keywords relating to your book titles and categories in which some one would expect to find your title is important for increasing the SEO of your book/s.

It must be remembered, SEO optimisation is very important for finding your products above all the other clutter on the web.

All the best.

Regards.

Oh, I know. Just figured I'd get it in, for the lurkers and newbs. Sometimes you have to wonder why people think this sort of thing works (because there's always someone who jumps at it, right?). SMH
