Meta-Data for Your Books
What is meta-data? Namely, it's data that you can't see but has an impact on web search results. It's part of SEO (search engine optimization), and not something you should be skipping over when creating your novel. We're all familiar with tags and keywords on Amazon, Smashwords, Createspace, etc... But! Did you know you have keyword (description tags) available to you in MS Word? Best of all: There's no limit to how many you can use!
Screenshot time! I bet you're all familiar with this:
See? You had a tool and most likely weren't using it.
Why does it matter? Well, we all know what tags are and how they function on Amazon, right? Think about how many more you'll get with this function. Roll that around in your mind for a moment.
Ahhhhh, I can see the lights upstairs come on from all the way over here! Now you know.
I promised you a couple of videos, so here you go:
Those were fun, huh? Yeah, that's a book trailer for I, Zombie and one for Chasing Shadows.
Okay! On to the next topic!
