  26. Descriptive Fields Book descriptions and author biographies are the most important places to make the case for your book. But they are also the biggest opportunities to affect how your book is found online. • Think about web copy before jacket copy • Don’t write context-dependent copy • Write evergreen copy
  27. Book Description Before you write your description, you need to think about the language you plan to use: • What are the most important words related to my book? • What kinds of searches do I want my book to be found in? • What words will readers use to find my book?
  28. Keywords to Consider • Full title & subtitle of your book • Names of all the major contributors • Basic words about the book – e.g. “novel”, “essay”, “collection”, etc. • Subject keywords • Genre keywords • Audience keywords – Ages – “expert”, “beginner”, etc. • Tone & emotion keywords – What’s the mood of your book? – How will your book make the reader feel? Research your keywords and try to find the language that will reach the best possible audience for your book
  29. Description Pitfalls • Time-sensitive information – “… is currently working on the sequel ….” – “ … is the author of seven novels … “ – “… also available as an audio book ..” • Too-short descriptions • Not starting with the most important information Avoid Including: • Comparative titles and authors • URLs and 3rd party links
  30. Author Biography Author Biographies are like resumes! Always Include • The author’s name • Basic keywords: – e.g. “author”, “writer”, novelist”, etc. • The name of at least one book Good to Include • Professional qualifications • Awards • Praise & Publications
  31. Strike the Right Balance SEO and keyword research will help searchers find your book. But once they do, you have to provide good, readable descriptions that make the sale. • What your book is about • What a reader will take away from the experience of reading your book • What makes your book is different and better than all the rest

Notas do Editor

  1. All of the information that was on the other slide in title field that shouldn’t be there has it’s own spot according to the BISG guidelines. Each item should be placed in it’s own field in order for the metadata to reflect correctly in data systems.
  2. Edition information should not be included in the title. At Bowker, if we receive a data feed that has the edition information in the title we will remove it and place it in the edition information field. This is an example of a title where the publisher included the words “first edition” in the title field. We removed that information from the title. If it’s the first edition of the book, this data is not needed because it is assumed it’s the first edition. Once the second edition comes out you would include that data but put it in the edition number field.
  3. Here is an example of a title that included the edition number in the title field as well as the edition number field. You can see in the ONIX tags that is included numerous times. We remove this information and only keep it in the edition number field. If the title didn’t include the edition number field then we would still remove it and just put it in the edition number field so it’s not in the title.
  4. On the screen I have included the BISG best practices for edition number. You can see that it clearly states to put the edition number in the edition number tag which is B057.
