Page reads showing in Amazon Ads - Happy Dance Time!
« on: July 22, 2020, 12:47:08 am »
Yup that's right, KENP is showing up against your Amazon Ads. This is fabulous.

The page reads are showing from July 15th but the search terms and targets that sparked those reads go back a little further. You'll see some KENP showing up without a click for this reason.

    I do applaud this long over due attempt. However, the linking of sales to ads has always been a bit problematic.

    Rather than page reads..why not downloads/borrows. Actually...in addition to page reads.

    This is great but I think it is gonna drive the price up on ads. Probably going to make it unaffordable to some authors.

    Is anyone in awe as their AMS KENP numbers mount daily?

    Me either.

    Mark Coker blogged about the AMS ads and what it meant for authors. I can't find the article. I think he posted it late last year. It's well worth a read as a counter perspective.

    I'm not meaning to hijack the thread, but here is that article. It relates directly to the thread and it's a perspective us indie authors might want to consider.
