FAQ AuthorHouse UK Web Site Updates

(as of October 3, 2010)


Did the bookstore link to my book detail page change?

Yes, the link to your book detail page has changed. Please update your records to reflect the new link. Use the advanced search feature in the Bookstore to query the title of your book. Then select your title from the results. Click on the link and you’ll be directed to the new page for your book.


How can I let others know that my book detail link has been updated?

The best practice related to link updating is to discover which sites are actually linking to your page. (To do this, all you need to do is visit Google.com and enter “link: http://www.authorhouse.com/bookstore/book_detail.asp?isbn=x-xxxxxxx-x-x” (where x=your book’s ISBN) in the search bar.) Once you have a complete list, contact each site to inform them of the link update.


I see you added a tagging application for social bookmarks in the bookstore. How does that help me promote my book?

Social bookmarks are designed to help spread the news about great content on the Web. For book detail pages, we’ve added the ability to easily create social bookmarks to help others who view your book share the link with others, which brings more traffic back to your book’s detail page.
