On Writing: Tags and keywords

Keywords are quite important to help your visibility. I am no expert in book publishing, but, by virtue of having an MBA, I do know a thing or two about marketing.

A tool I found and wanted to share was google ngrams. This free tool allows you to look for the frequency of use of words in books depending on the year search range. While it is not directly derived from the internet, I suspect there is a significant correlation between the use of words in books and online. Thus, I believe, that it would be wise to use this tool to compare keywords when deciding on what tags to use on your book.
