If you are still procrastinating on launching your publishing adventure because you are not sure of being able to finish or write a full novel as your first book, then you can start out by writing and publishing short stories. After your have mastered the fundamentals of writing and publishing through these short stories, you can then start writing and publishing full novels.

People normally ask questions on keywords when publishing their books. To get your keywords right, you need to have an understanding of search engine optimization.

Secondly, you need to put yourself in the place of a potential buyer and imagine what appropriate keywords you will used in searching for the book if you were searching for it on the Internet.

There are plenty of tools (like PublisherRocket, KindleRanker, Soniatool, GoogleTrend etc) that offer to help you identify profitable keywords. But ironically the more time you invest using them, the more confusing and misleading they turn out to be. Howbeit there are basically Only two types of keyword research you ever need:

Supporting Keywords:
Let say you are a Dog breeder and you have finally finished writing the Dog training book you painstakingly penned down in the last 3 years and as you plan on publishing you desire keywords to help sell the book. What you need are synonym and acronym that buyers might use in searching instead of "Dog Training" . These include Pet school, Dog lesson.
For this type of keywords, you start with ideas in your head plus using a dictionary to check for synonym and acronym of the primay words- "Dog" and "Training", then finalize by testing them on the Amazon search bar.

Trending Keywords:
This is the honey pot which some refer to as Profitable keywords. The simplest way to deducing them but yet difficult to identify even when starring you in the face is to go on YouTube and search out the most viewed videos. Their titles are the keywords you desire to write on.

Trust this should be of help to you and many others. SHALOM
