message 1: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Twead (victoriatwead) I’ve been reading the really useful Amazon tagging thread, but through lack of time, and as my book isn’t released yet, I haven’t joined in.

So I wondered if anybody would like me to tag their book(s)? I’d be happy to do so. If you email me on VictoriaTwead at gmail dot com with the title(s) and whether it’s Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk, or both, I’ll trot along and check the tag boxes.

In return, when my book ‘Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools’ is released, I’ll nag you to tag mine too!

Victoria

P.S. Done Tamela Quijas’s.

Got your email, thanks! I'll let you know when I've tagged yours, then nudge you gently to tag 'Chickens' as soon as it's released.

Tag my Language the Social Mirror by Elaine Chaika and my other listed book, and I'll happily tag yours. Are you doing POD or a regular publisher?


message 19: by Victoria (last edited Aug 27, 2009 12:56PM) (new)

Victoria Twead (victoriatwead) Hi Elaine,

I see your book has only 3 tags. (communication, interpersonal relations, linguistics) Would you like me to add some more?

Also, can you give me the links to your other books, and tell me if they are Paperback and/or Kindle, so I don't miss anything?

message 20: by Karen (new)

Karen (karenlmason) | 3 comments Do you know, I still don't understand how tagging works. Do I tag my books to other people or do I tag other people's books to mine?


message 21: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Twead (victoriatwead) Hi Karen,

I'm new to this too, but if I understand correctly, it means that if lots of people have tagged keywords describing your book on Amazon, it makes it more 'findable' to potential customers. Like if someone types in the keyword 'Spain' and 'comedy', then hopefully my book would pop up. (Except my book isn't even released yet!) Please correct me, anyone, if I've got that wrong at all.

Would you like me to tag yours?

message 22: by Brett (new)

Brett Williams (mrmarriage) | 40 comments Hi, I have tagged your books on amazon...would love it if you tagged mine. http://www.amazon.com/You-Can-Right-M...

Victoria and Karen, Tags are like search categories and make it easier for users to find your book in searches. So, put in the tags that you think your book falls under, people can click on the same tags. The more tags you have for a certain category , the higher up you will come in a search, so we can all help each other out. Scroll down below your book on amazon and you will see where to add tags. Does that help?


message 23: by Brett (new)

Brett Williams (mrmarriage) | 40 comments Victoria, raff, Gregory, Sean, Kevis, Nancy, Alice and Elaine I have tagged you. Karen, leave a link and I will tag you too! Appreciate any tags you can give me . http://www.amazon.com/You-Can-Right-M...

Brett Williams (mrmarriage) | 40 comments Victoria and everyone else, for the purpose of this thread, it would be easier to find your book for tagging if you give us the amazon link. Thanks.
Some of your books took a little research to find..so a quick link to the page we tag on would be most helpful.


message 25: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Twead (victoriatwead) Brett, I've now tagged yours too.

My book is now released so would HUGELY appreciate return tagging from those above.

It's 'Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools'

message 28: by Marcia (new)

Marcia Basichis (marciab) | 2 comments Hi Brett,
I tagged yours. I think it is important that everyone reciprocates. If you haven't tagged the Gordon Basichis books -- The Guys Who Spied for China, Beautiful Bad Girl and the Constant Travellers, I'd truly appreciate it.

Hope the tagging generates great sales for you. (I too often tag under my other account) No worries.

message 29: by Jerry (new)

Jerry Haigh (jerryhaigh) | 16 comments I've been a bit slow on the uptake as I had not realized that one could add tags of other people's books and increase the hit rate. I have tagged everything that I could from today's post (Alice, Brett and Victoria) and will now pay more attention.

There is another thing that one can do, and I write as a Canadian. Many of you may not know that Amazon's various branches do not talk to one antoher. If you want a book tagged for the USA, Canada & UK (as suggested by Victoria) you have to enter each page separately and do the tagging. With that in mind here are links for my two books for each of those lists. I don't know how to reduce the length of the links like Victoria has done, so I'm afraid that they are longish, but I guess that will not make any difference

So, for The Trouble WIth Lions here are the three links

http://www.amazon.com/Trouble-Lions-G...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trouble-Lions...

http://www.amazon.ca/Trouble-Lions-Gl...

And for Wrestling WIth Rhinos here are three more.

Svetlana Kovalkova-McKenna I went up the list and tagged everyone with a link, please return the favor.


message 32: by Jerry (new)

Jerry Haigh (jerryhaigh) | 16 comments I went through the list of 31 messages today and have tagged the following ones that I had missed before: Sean, Nancy, Gordon Basichis and Svetlana. There are five whose books I did not tag because they did not have any kind of link. So, Kevin, Raff, Gregory, Elaine and Karen, if you'd like your work tagged please give us a link. I note that my two books Wrestling WIth Rhinos and The Trouble WIth Lions (listed above) have only received tagging from one person, on the amazon.com site and none on the amazon.ca site. Please reciprocate.

message 43: by Jerry (new)

Jerry Haigh (jerryhaigh) | 16 comments I've now tagged everyone whose books I could find although one or two needed some detective work as there were no direct links posted.

I find that while my own tags have grown a bit on the Amazon.co page nothing has happened on the Canadian page of Amazon.ca. For those who are willing here are the links for the that page, although they don't look very complete. YOu could enter the relevant Amazon page & under books type Haigh lions or Haigh rhino

http://www.amazon.ca/Trouble-Lions-Glasg...
http://www.amazon.ca/Wrestling-Rhinos-Ad...

Then there is the Amazon page in UK which is at Amazon.co.uk
Her are the links for that
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trouble-Lions-Gl...
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wrestling-Rhinos..

Victoria, I tagged your Spanish saga (what an adventure, no doubt aided by some Sangria from time to time :-)) on the UK site, so maybe you at least could reciprocate

Good luck to all

Jerry

Hi Jerry, I tagged your books on Amazon UK. I think you need to have a separate account on Amazon in each country, because when I went to tag the UK one I had to set up a new signature (I already had an account, just never used it).

Thanks Alison


message 45: by Jerry (new)

Jerry Haigh (jerryhaigh) | 16 comments Thanks Alison. You are right, you need to have an account in each country where you want to tag or post. Even if you have only purchased a toothpick on Amazon that is enough.

Some of you I found I had tagged via some other tagging thread or group...no problem, I just logged out and logged back in on my other amazon account and tagged you again!

Would it be weird if I said I sort of enjoy this? I guess your advertising is working because I purchased several books this week!!!
