Ever since I discovered that Amazon’s SEO was more complicated than merely a word for word keyword match, I have been visiting my book on its virtual shelves daily. I was very happy to see that I now have top billing when searching for my book, at least I have top billing based on my searches. Who knows where I may still rank with other people’s searches, and that unknown keeps bringing me back to Amazon day in and day out as if Amazon would suddenly take pity on me and say, yeah we know you are interested in this product. We’ll sell it for you if only so that you move onto other product pages and start buying those as well. Of course if they did come out and say that directly to me, I would turn around and sign up for a multi-year prime membership. I hear that is only mildly less addictive.
