eBook Keywords Analysis: Bad Boy/Alpha Male Romance

NOTE: This page is a WIP, I’ve included the category keywords as a help in the meantime.

We thought about simply including these dominant alpha male keywords in the Romance section, but when the largest sub-category of Romance (which is in itself the largest category by volume and sales) is so dominant, it’s a niche that deserves it’s own page. The vast majority of readers for this niche are women, and that is important to keep in mind when crafting keywords. As this is a flooded niche, it’s important to stand out with some keyword variety – normally I am all about using the most used keywords as a pragmatic rule, however this category is one exception, at least in my opinion. In such a broad category, it’s essential to narrow your keywords. You need to target long tail keywords, unless you’re planning on running a large marketing campaign or are an experience author who’s confident your book will hit the top of the charts. Sales in this category tend to jump straight off a cliff after a certain point due to both the volume of new books entering the category, and also the limited sub-genres. Keywords are your main tool against this decay, so make sure you really swing and hit a solid niche keyword category that people will search for, for years to come, that’s not getting totally flooded with new books constantly.

Category Keywords

To categorize your book into a sub-category on Amazon, choose your main category, then include the relevant keywords into your keyword sections. Individual keywords can be put anywhere, multiple word category keywords must be alone in their keyword box.

There are also keywords for other sections that might be relevant to a Billionaire/Bad Boy novel. To categorize your book into a sub-category on Amazon, choose your main category, then include the relevant keywords into your keyword sections.
