Learning the Value of the ISBN and Metadata

Metadata in its simplest definition is data about data. So what does this mean for authors? Metadata is any information about your book that is not directly related to the plot. So your title, back cover blurb and keywords about your book are all your metadata. For authors looking to sell books online, metadata is important because it helps you and your book become more searchable to your audience.

From Ingram Spark's help page video learning series, hear from Bowker's Rebecca Albani on what exactly metadata is, the importance of your ISBN, and why these matters. You will learn how the metadata you choose dictates who, when, and how your work is discovered, the value of attaching a unique ISBN to each of your formats, and what you should be monitoring in your data system.
