All About Keywords and the Rest of the Metadata Family
The morning is going to be an overview and what metadata (keywords, categories, titles, description and all of the searchable information about your book) is and why it’s more important now, not just for websites—but for selling online.
The first part is an hour talking about keyword tools and using the best keywords for your book. Bob and David will try to do some examples for folks in the workshop, subject to having good Internet access.
