  1. I couldn't find the number of characters Amazon permits (per keyword slot) anywhere in their info… But you let us know pretty much right away. THANK YOU! So liberating.

  2. Thanks so much, Dale. I just published my first collection of short horror stories. Your advice sure helps.

  3. what is better?to put my title and subtitle in keywords search???
    or it,s better to put another keywords which not including my titles book?

  4. Love EVERYTHING about this video – the video edit, the tshirt and most importantly the content. We released our second book on KDP today so will 100% be using these techniques. Thank you so much! Hope you're having the most awesome day!!

  5. OOOH MYYY GOD! I've been using those slots with only one word per slot… I just didn't know it worked like that, thank you so so so much!, I hope this can help me selling my book a lot more! 😀

  6. Dale, I need your help. I'm an Author that wrote an Autobiography of my life. You are a very knowledgeable person when it comes to self-publishing.

  7. How important are reviews in ranking in the top 6-7 listings? I find most niches top books have 200+ reviews. A newbie can’t compete in that space

  8. Dale, so under the 7 slots that amazon allows us to enter keywords for our book, are you saying to enter "Very Specific Keywords" instead of "Broad Keywords?" For example, instead of entering the broad keyword "sports" I should enter a specific keyword like, "sports training." Is this correct? thanks in advance.
