Rachelle Vaughn (rachellevaughn) | 9 comments Did you know there is also a Like button on the top right side of your author profile at Amazon? I was over on the Kindle Boards and someone mentioned it. (I've never even noticed it before.) So, not only can we "like" each others books when we tag them, we can also "like" the author page as well.
Here's mine: http://www.amazon.com/Rachelle-Vaughn...

Timothy McDougall (httpgoodreadstim_mc_dougall) | 21 comments Natalie, if you liked and tagged me it doesn't show! When you hit the like button you have to be signed in to your Amazon account and the amount of (likes) will immediately increase by (one). The same is true in the number showing for each tag. If you could try it again!

Mike Bove (mikebove) | 7 comments This thread is for 'author pages'and many links are not author pages.


message 32: by Ericka (new)

Ericka Smith  | 94 comments It's for tags and likes too. If you go back 4000 posts.....


message 33: by Paul (last edited Mar 28, 2012 08:28AM) (new)

Paul Vincent (astronomicon) | 33 comments It's almost impossible to keep any thread on topic. The subject matter tends to wander as the posts pile up.

Oddly the "like" button in only present on the US version of Amazon's site. The UK one has that section completely missing.

Do any readers actually take any notice of it? I can understand the value of the likes count beside a product, but it would never occur to me to see how many likes an author has.


message 34: by Ericka (last edited Mar 28, 2012 08:29AM) (new)

Ericka Smith  | 94 comments Lol. Yes, they all seem to turn another direction. I don't mind doing author pages or tags. I don't have an author page as I have another series under a pen name for a different Genre. ;) I would do reviews too, if someone needed.


message 35: by Ericka (new)

Ericka Smith  | 94 comments It's my understanding that "like" and "tags" help determine Amazon ranking.

When I am buying a book, I do look at how many people "like" the book. Books that I have read, that have had dozens of likes, have turned out to be good reading material.


message 36: by Paul (new)

Paul Vincent (astronomicon) | 33 comments But my understanding was that Amazon rank books, they don't rank authors? Or is there a table anywhere on their site of author rankings?

If there is, I'd love to see it.


message 37: by Ericka (new)

Ericka Smith  | 94 comments I was speaking of book rankings. The ranking for authors is a mystery as far as I am concerned. That would be measured by monetary success? Suzanne Collins, JK Rowlings..... I can measure their succes in terms of popularity and monetary compensation.


message 38: by Paul (new)

Paul Vincent (astronomicon) | 33 comments In Amazon's case it could be by number of "like"s but I don't really see what that would actually mean!

It couldn't be by earnings as it could give away too much information (I certainly would not want another author to know they were earning more/less than me).


message 39: by Ericka (new)

Ericka Smith  | 94 comments Lol, Amazon is ambiguous at best.... I have found it difficult to understand the reasoning behind what they do.....

message 41: by Paul (new)

Paul Vincent (astronomicon) | 33 comments That last post seems rather like spam.


message 42: by Anita (new)

Anita Bartholomew | 3 comments I might be wrong, but I think that rank is determined solely by sales, and rank changes by the hour. I'm not quite sure what the "like" buttons do, other than give readers a chance to weigh in without having to bother writing a review.

message 46: by Denise (new)

Denise Turney (deniseturney) | 26 comments Regarding Google Plus (B&N) and Likes (Amazon and B&N), I think they may influence search engine rankings but I don't think they influence book rankings at book retail websites. That said, I think more than sales influence the rankings, but not sure what other components go into the rankings.

Ericka Smith  | 94 comments No problem Denise. The like took several tries before it turned orange. Eventually it did show the orange color. Perhaps the buttons are not working today. The purchase button was not working last week.


message 50: by Denise (new)

Denise Turney (deniseturney) | 26 comments I understand. Last week my order button wasn't working at Amazon.com either, but it was corrected. Maybe a glitch. Thanks again!
