Archway’s Enhanced Listing Service

If your goal is to attract retail buyers, you can make your book more discoverable on the major wholesale databases such as Ingram’s ipage, by making sure your book's metadata is enhanced.

What Is Book Metadata?

Book metadata details are the information librarians, booksellers, and readers use to search for new titles online or within a database like iPage or on sites like Amazon. It usually contains your author and book information, BISAC categories, associated keywords, keynote, and more. When customers search on retail sites like Amazon, millions of book metadata are crawled and matched to generate the search results list.

Here are some useful tips and suggestions on how to create your book's metadata before publication.

What Is Book Metadata Optimization?

Optimization enhances your book's metadata and keywords to make it more discoverable by potential readers. It can benefit authors by increasing their book's visibility and potentially attracting more readers.

How Does Archway Publishing's Enhanced Listing Service Work?

Archway’s Enhanced Listing service is included in all publishing packages. With it, your book’s electronic catalog record is made more robust and brought up to its maximum potential by Archway’s team of copywriters.

We will ensure that your book’s record includes the following information in addition to the usual metadata: a professionally written author bio and book summary, a punchy keynote capturing the overall theme and storyline, and carefully selected keywords and search phrases to make your book stand out in search queries.

Note: This service won't provide significant text or content changes to your book information. This also doesn't guarantee a first-page placement in search engines or online retail stores.
