Weird Trick Can Put Your eBook On The Top Of Amazon's Search Results

Many first time eBook authors spend little time doing advance research on their topic prior to writing their book. Why spend the time writing even a short eBook unless you know in advance that there is a demand for it? Well, this is one of those sound bites that is great to use if you are teaching an eBook workshop, but not always easy to follow through on.

It can be difficult to determine how popular a topic really is at Amazon, and then there is the issue of competition. Even if you select a topic that is in high demand from readers, there may be such stiff competition that you still don't achieve much with your sales efforts. So, the trick is to pick a niche with an existing demand that is not overly competitive. So, how do you do that?

I stumbled across an interesting software program that does Amazon keyword research. I am still experimenting with it, and I will have a more complete report later. At this point, I can tell you that I will be using this software as a major resource to help me decide on what eBook topics to pursue. I should also add that there is the very important issue of titles and descriptions that are keyword optimized. Take for example my book on the JFK assassination. By including the phrase 'JFK Assassination' in the title I am boosted to position 1 or 2 in the Kindle store

I don't want to lead you to believe that you can trick Amazon into selling a ton of books for you by gaming the system. You still need to have a well written book and a great cover. To make a full time living as an author you need to build a following of readers. If your books are simply lost in the sea of other options at Amazon, you will never even get to first base. This is why I would highly recommend grabbing Kindle Samurai.
