Everything You Need to Know About Amazon Algorithms

Taught by - 2 Comments

Start this course

Amazon is more than just a retailer: it is a search engine as well as a book discoverability website. In fact, it’s the world’s leading search engine for books, and the place where a majority of readers go to find their next read.

Which is why it is so important for indie authors to know exactly how readers search for books on Amazon, and how Amazon recommends books to them. While there are many ways to market a book, nothing really compares to having your book in the top of the Amazon charts, or featured in an Amazon email. 

In this course, Reedsy co-founder Ricardo Fayet will help you understand how the Amazon recommendation machine works and give you the knowledge to make it work to your advantage.

  • The fundamentals of how the algorithms work
  • How to optimize your product page for the algorithm
  • How to pick the right categories and keywords
  • How to ascend the various lists on the Kindle store
  • The right way to launch your book
