As readers, we are all influential on sites like Amazon. More so than you might think.
Have you ever taken time to study the entire retail page for a book you’re thinking of buying on Amazon? Did you notice the Like button at the top of the page? This is a way to tell others you think the book is worth buying, or at least sampling with a free download.
Do you read book reviews? If so, do you occasionally answer the question: “Was this review helpful to you?” If you click the “Yes” button, you help nudge that review higher up the page. If you click “No”, well, you get the picture.
What about book tags? Do you know where to find them and what their purpose is? These powerful bad boys can be found down, way down, the retail page. Scroll past the Book Description, Customer Reviews and several other helpful areas. Finally, you’ll come to “Tags Customers Associate with This Product” .
Amazon advises: “Think of a tag as a keyword or category label. Tags can both help you find items on the Amazon site as well as provide an easy way for you to “remember” and classify items for later recall. You can add up to 15 tags per item.” Or you can simply click the little boxes by tags that have already been added. The more times a particular tag is clicked, the higher the book shows up in a customer search in that category.
With all of this in mind, if you have a minute, please visit my Dashing Druid page and click some tags (up to 15). While you’re there, if you feel like hitting the “Like” button, I ‘d be much obliged. Oh, and don’t forget the reviews. I just received a great one the other day from Big Al’s Books and Pals. Give it a “Yes” if you want to.
