More tips on Amazon Book Reviews

The always interesting Jason McDonald (Find his book on SEO at the Kindle store: Fifty SEO Ideas: Free Tips, Secrets, and Ideas for Search Engine Optimization: Jason McDonald: Amazon.com: Kindle Store:) sent a useful email yesterday.  Jason provided his followers (those who have taken his courses on SEO, which I wholeheartedly recommend if you have interest in blogging, web content ) with tips for making reviews visible:

1.  Tag your review so that others can find it  (e.g., self-help, romance, memoir)-- it's good to remember that tags and labels are the "stuff" of search engines, since potential readers search for these terms. Tagged reviews have twice the power of untagged reviews.
2.  Tell your potential reviewers to assign tags to whatever they write about your book.  So, let's say you have a book about mental illness-- say:  I'd really appreciate it if you would tag your review with the words "mental illness."  That's less pressure than saying you want a positive review.
2.  Rate other people's reviews as helpful-- and alert your potential reviewers to do the same.  Again, this is a matter of visibility.  People pay more attention to reviews that are rated.
