As Tom Waits once sang, it’s cool to be big in Japan – but hey, you get to be big on Google. If you’ve Googled your name lately, you may notice your overall page count has gone up since you’ve put your book in the Blurb Bookstore with your name in the title. And if you Google the title of your book, you may find that your Blurb book shoots right up to the top of the search results. This is more than a cheap thrill. Being big on Google helps people find you and your book faster, and highlights your talents without the need for shameless self-promotion – which makes a lot of authors cringe, present company included.
If you want your book to be even bigger on Google, choose your book title wisely. Our clever engineers have meta-tagged your title so that that it grabs Google’s attention, and books with distinctive titles like Hiding Horst and Beckett Anthony Frisch are even more likely to top Google search results.
Google results for your book usually include a link to your Book Preview too, if you opted to use the Book Preview feature for your book in the Blurb Bookstore. You can turn Book Preview on or off anytime – just log in and change the settings on your Book Detail page.
One of the peculiar perks of being an author is being buzzed about online as an authority on your book’s subject. So enough with the false modesty: Get out there and stake your claim to Google fame.
