Amazon’s Recent Changes: Three Categories and Uncertain Placement
Amazon’s recent alterations have shaken up the way authors select categories for their books. Now, you’re limited to just three Amazon categories in KDP, and there’s no guarantee that your book will end up in those categories. Amazon reserves the right to make changes based on your metadata and reader behavior, which could even mean placement in additional categories, at their whim.
Connecting Categories and Keywords: Why It Matters
So, what’s the connection between these category changes and keywords? Well, since Amazon can’t guarantee your books’ category placement, you must take matters into your own hands. You need keywords that signal to Amazon’s algorithm that your book belongs in the right categories.
That’s where this revamped 7 Kindle keywords strategy comes into play:
