Top Amazon Keyword Searches January 2019 (Romance, Fiction, Mystery, Thriller, Suspense, Action, SciFi)

Top Amazon Keyword Searches for Today!

The keywords below are listed ranked order. That means that of all the keywords typed into the US Amazon store, “an anonymous girl” is searched most often for people using A as the first letter. “becoming michelle obama” is most popular for B and so on. This does not tell us how popular one keyword is over another, however. For example: is xenophon (top 1) really more popular than western romance (top 10)? No, probably not. You must take into account the overall popularity of the letter you’re looking at.  Remember that when you’re choosing keywords for your books there are some words you are forbidden from using. (Free, Kindle Unlimited, Kindle, Best, etc.) However, you can still use these keywords when doing your AMS ads. And don’t forget to get creative!

Not sure how best to use those seven KDP boxes? Check out the blog post here that shows you my own personal trick.
