What is book metadata?
Metadata is essential embedded information about your book from basics like title, author, ISBN, publisher, genre, and price, to more detailed information like author bio, book cover, book description, quotes, target audience, and reviews, which allows both readers and retailers alike to categorize and find your book.
Not sure how to categorize your book or what subgenre fits best? We will research and optimize every data field of your book’s metadata—including the tricky ones like BISAC codes and book descriptions—to make sure every field is custom crafted for your book, giving you the best chance of discoverability.
Ever hear the term SEO (search engine optimization)? We will choose specific words and phrases that readers are most likely to search for and are more likely to give you stronger search engine results.
Spell check & grammar
