The more documented your book is, the better it will rank on reseller websites. Poorly documented metadata may cause a book to end up in the wrong sections. For example, a children's book for which there is no audience or specific BISAC classification will not appear under the Children's category on the retailer's website. So users looking for children's books in the Children's section will never find such a book, just like a paper book that is not assigned to the right section of a bookshop or library.

In this article, we give you some advice on how to optimize your metadata and increase the sales potential of your books.
