When you publish your book on Create Space (or anywhere really), make sure that you take the time to use carefully chosen Keywords. You don't want to use commonly searched words that only compete with all of the other 1,000,000 books on your topic. The key is to find a niche keyword that is relevant to your book. But, don't narrow it down so far that only a few people would think to enter the words into the search engine.
Here's a great link to a site that gives you some good tips and helps you narrow down your choices: http://app.scientificseller.com/#/
By the way, it is really helpful to read Amazon's hints on what kind of keywords to use for your project, as well as help you understand what you may not use for search words.
My last advice today: Do a goggle search when you have time and take the time to learn more about how keywords can make or break your chances of potential online sales. Many authors have a great book (much, much better than mine) and yet don't take the time to build their presence online or learn to work with SEO's, Keywords, build websites, and other potentially income driven technology.
To all those who are bucking the traditional publishing system: The above is so important that I can't stress it enough. Make your book good, pay extra attention to the cover (something I wish I had done), and learn to use the World Wide Web to your advantage.
I have now gotten my book up the list to 200 in some of the Amazon searches. This is a good start, but it needs to be better. But, right now I am working on finishing my novel up (sneak peak chapters to be shared her soon: so stop back or join me on We Wrote for updates, or add the RSS Feed!).
This week I am going to go horse back riding with the family. So, I will catch up with you in about a week!
