I want to know where my best chances are within my subject area, where there's demand (most wished for) good sales figures (best sellers) and what terms buyers are searching on. Kindle mining will do all that for me AND tell me what tags are on the books, (individually and by search term/category) how many reviews they've got, how much they cost, how big they are... I can export the information into excel, see the books as they are on Amazon from within the program and even see the covers of the top ones all side by side.

The program is slick and very easy to use - I picked it up in minutes so it must be! I tried to use the Amazon API a while ago and got lost and gave up, now this will give me the information I wanted in a simple format AND more that the API won't!

I think that just one of the functionalities would be worth the price here, so getting all these in one place, you'd be mad not to buy it!!

From my viewpoint, people tag a book for one of two reasons:

1. SEO benefits, of course. So, some tags only indicate what the author (or his friends) thought were important phrases to help the book's popularity.

2. Phrases readers thought important, and perhaps what they were looking for when they bought that book. They add a tag so other readers will find that particular book, when they're searching.

The latter is the most useful keywork to know about. It not only tells me what people consider important in a book, but what they might be searching for at websites, as well. As a supplement to the keywords lists provided by Google's tools, etc., this can be helpful when planning a book.

I was delighted with Kindle Mining before. This upgrade makes this software even more valuable, whether you've already published books or you're planning new ones.

(Before I owned this software, I'd spent hours studying the competition, but -- even with many hours of research -- I didn't have a broad enough sampling to see the clear success patterns in that niche, which Kindle Mining showed me at a glance.)

The problem has been price and tags, and they're right there on my Kindle Mining screen, as plain as day. I can see why my competitors' newest books -- with less branding than I have -- have been outselling one of my recent books.

With just a few more clicks, I can see where the sold-or-stalled price break is in that niche, too. That tells me how much time & effort to invest in future books. Seriously, in some niches, it doesn't matter if you're giving them directions to the Holy Grail or Captain Kidd's lost treasure; they're still going to want the price in a certain range.

Using this software, I can see several "duh!" tags I should have used. And, from "Gee, I wonder why this book isn't selling?" to having all the problems fixed... it took maybe five minutes, thanks to Kindle Mining.

As a long-time author (first major nonfiction book published in 1987), I know a lot about book marketing and Amazon numbers, but I still bought the OTO. For the price ($6), all I need is one new tip, and it's paid for itself within days. I didn't feel cheated at all. Almost any "second opinion" about analyzing Amazon is going to improve my sales, and I'm grateful when others share insights they've gleaned after many hours (or days, weeks, or months) for such a low price.

And frankly, Kindle Mining is -- as I expected -- ridiculously underpriced for how well it works, and how much (and how quickly) it can improve your Kindle book income.

So, I'm a very happy customer this morning, and -- having taken a few minutes to post this update -- I'm getting back to work on my next Kindle book.

P.S. If, like me, you're also publishing printed books, this software can provide the same kind of information for all books, not just Kindle books. I guess that -- for a writer like me -- this feature raises Kindle Mining from "pure gold" to "pure platinum."

24 hour update

Here's what happened with that book that wasn't selling as well as I'd expected. I made the two changes I mentioned above, based on what I learned using Kindle Mining. Within 24 hours, my Kindle sales for that book have almost doubled. In addition, two people have already loaned their copy of that Kindle book to others, and that means even more income for me.

I'm not an affiliate for Kindle Mining. I didn't get a review copy, and nobody asked me to write this. However, I'm posting this update on Sunday -- my day for doing extra nice things for other people -- and one of the best things I can do for fellow Kindle authors is recommend this software.

This Reply Reserved For FAQ

Q. "I haven't received my login info, what do I do?"
A. Please fill out the form here: Contact Us | Software 4 Profits instead of replying to the thread here. Thanks.

Q. "The software says version 1.0 not 1.1, what gives??"
A. The latest version is now in the Members area. Please login, download it and follow the instructions but completely remove the previous version first.

Q. "I wrote to support 3 hours ago and have not heard back yet!!! What's going on??"
A. We are based in the UK and Europe (8 hours ahead of Pacific, 5 to Eastern). So if there is a delay in getting back to you, it's not that we don't care about you, we just need to sleep once in a while. Rest assured, normal rapid response will be resumed next day.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT UPGRADE

Thanks to the suggestion of the Kindle publisher quoted below, we have just added the ability to instantly download all tags from any given search in both alphabetic AND in order of number of occurrences of each tag. This is HUGE and an incredibly valuable addition to the software.

To celebrate, we are freezing the price for 24 hours - so grab the software now whilst it stays at this price.

... the abililty to see all the tags for that keyword is a very useful tool to use as a jumping point for not only investigating other keywords, but also to get a feel for what tags you should target for your own book (tip: the more 'long tail' the better - no matter what other experts may tell you!)

Hello, Read the sales copy and watched the very good video explanation. Where in the software does it provide the search results that indicates how viable a kindle subject is? [ie. from sales copy above.. "has enough searches to make it viable but not too many to make it be too competitive -- like Google"] Does this software actually provide the number of searches for kindle keywords as Google does for keywords in general through it's tool? Thanks.

I've made a nice profit from Mark's earlier "Kindle Answers" software, so I didn't hesitate to buy this while the price is absurdly low.

Kindle is a numbers game. If you expect to get rich from one book... well, you might be that lucky. Then again, you might win the lottery, as well.

The way to earn a comfortable living from Kindle (or publishing in general) is to write (and publish, of course) lots of good books for hungry audiences.

I can't help you with the writing part (though Kindle Answers can help in a very big way), but finding a hungry audience in a niche where you can be competitive...? That's within your reach with the data provided by this kind of software.

(And, Mark... please keep saying niche as "neesh," not "nitch." It's a relief to hear that pronunciation.)

Hey mate,

I am having problems with this one. First, the download is version 1.0 - and on the site it says that it is version 1.1. Second, I keep getting this error message: "object reference not set to an instance of an object".

I am letting you know here, as well as through your support system, because I suspect that this might be a common problem.

Hi Speedye Products. If I understand the question correctly, no, it doesn't provide Google results for Kindle keywords but what it does is give you the keywords that Amazon has in it's database, in other words buyer keywords.

Also, in the Help section, I go over some of the parameters you should look for when assessing a niche in terms of sales rankings and competition. Hope that helps.

Default Re: [KINDLE SOFTWARE] Deep Niche Kindle Research

As both a self-published author and a publisher, I have experience of publishing well over 100 books - both in paperback and Kindle. I also run a very limited Master Mind group on Facebook, which Mark is a part of - so I will say up front that I got a free copy to review.

Most people get hung up over the content creation side of things which is nowhere near as important as the marketing of the book itself. Of course, you need to have a 'good enough' product otherwise readers will soon make that clear through reviews, but unless you understand how Amazon works then you won't be selling too many copies.

Unlike a certain high profile launch at the moment, it's not about ranking top for a keyword of your choosing, or about getting to #1 in a category. I have books that are #1 in both with thousands of competing books - yet they still don't sell too many copies!

The key is to start from a place of understanding what buyers on Amazon are searching for - and then making sure that your content/titles/description/keywords/tags (for starters!) are optimized for how Amazon works.

What Kindle Mining does is start you off in the right direction by firstly giving you the Amazon Suggest keywords that users are actually typing in as they search for books to buy. For the last two years, this has been the starting point for my own research - and such keywords are the cornerstone of my titles/subtitles.

Up until a year or so ago, you could get enough information to analyze a niche from Amazon's own API - but as they have now restricted the data available - unless you get a great coder and know what you are doing - you have to manually analyze at least the top ten books for EACH suggest keyword manually in order to really understand whether it could be a profitable keyword to target.

Not any more. As Kindle Mining gets ranking data from the top 120 you can immediately get a feel for whether that keyword is worth further investigation. However, for me, the 'killer' part of this program is that it goes into Amazon itself and gets other data that the API doesn't provide.

For me, the ability to view all the book covers is worth the price of the program alone, as is the list of tags for all of the books. When I design covers, I ALWAYS look at what the broader niche covers look like, and then try to position my cover as something that is the 'same' but still stands out. This feature alone will save me a lot of time paging through Amazon as I can now see all the covers at a glance. Also, the abililty to see all the tags for that keyword is a very useful tool to use as a jumping point for not only investigating other keywords, but also to get a feel for what tags you should target for your own book (tip: the more 'long tail' the better - no matter what other experts may tell you!)

As someone who has made a living full-time since 2001 - I can tell you that such a program would have been sold for much much more a few years ago (those who were around during the adsense days will know how critical it was to have tools that do a lot of the heavy lifting for you and we paid $100s for those at the time).

All I can say is that unlike many 'me-too' Kindle WSOs on here created by people who clearly haven't published more than a couple of books, this tool is the 'real deal' and if you're serious about earning passive income from Kindle for years to come (as I will be doing) then you MUST start your books with a view on what people are searching for in order to compete with the marketing budget of the big publishers.

Finally, I don't have an IM list and therefore have not promoted this so I get no benefit from writing this (very rare!) review of a product. I much prefer to stay underground (I have only ever spoken at Ed Dale's event about Kindle last year), and have been using a number of my own in-house tools to achieve what Kindle Mining does in one program. All I can say is stop buying 'how to make money on Kindle' books - create a book in whichever form works for you - and then use this tool to give yourself an advantage over those of don't own it.

To Our Success!

Hi Guatam - In all the panic to launch, the one thing I must have forgot to do was upload V1.1 - d'oh! Anyway, try downloading again now, deleting the previous version and installing the new one.

Apologies, I thought I'd taken care of everything and ended up forgetting that

Default Re: [KINDLE SOFTWARE] ** OVER 100 SOLD ** Deep Niche Kindle Research

I've been using Kindle Mining this morning, and it's pure gold. In minutes, I saw why one of my Kindle books hasn't been selling as well as I'd like. (Before I owned this software, I'd spent hours studying the competition, but -- even with many hours of research -- I didn't have a broad enough sampling to see the clear success patterns in that niche, which Kindle Mining showed me at a glance.)

The problem has been price and tags, and they're right there on my Kindle Mining screen, as plain as day. I can see why my competitors' newest books -- with less branding than I have -- have been outselling one of my recent books.

With just a few more clicks, I can see where the sold-or-stalled price break is in that niche, too. That tells me how much time & effort to invest in future books. Seriously, in some niches, it doesn't matter if you're giving them directions to the Holy Grail or Captain Kidd's lost treasure; they're still going to want the price in a certain range.

Using this software, I can see several "duh!" tags I should have used. And, from "Gee, I wonder why this book isn't selling?" to having all the problems fixed... it took maybe five minutes, thanks to Kindle Mining.

As a long-time author (first major nonfiction book published in 1987), I know a lot about book marketing and Amazon numbers, but I still bought the OTO. For the price ($6), all I need is one new tip, and it's paid for itself within days. I didn't feel cheated at all. Almost any "second opinion" about analyzing Amazon is going to improve my sales, and I'm grateful when others share insights they've gleaned after many hours (or days, weeks, or months) for such a low price.

And frankly, Kindle Mining is -- as I expected -- ridiculously underpriced for how well it works, and how much (and how quickly) it can improve your Kindle book income.

So, I'm a very happy customer this morning, and -- having taken a few minutes to post this update -- I'm getting back to work on my next Kindle book.

P.S. If, like me, you're also publishing printed books, this software can provide the same kind of information for all books, not just Kindle books. I guess that -- for a writer like me -- this feature raises Kindle Mining from "pure gold" to "pure platinum."

24 hour update

Here's what happened with that book that wasn't selling as well as I'd expected. I made the two changes I mentioned above, based on what I learned using Kindle Mining. Within 24 hours, my Kindle sales for that book have almost doubled. In addition, two people have already loaned their copy of that Kindle book to others, and that means even more income for me.

I'm not an affiliate for Kindle Mining. I didn't get a review copy, and nobody asked me to write this. However, I'm posting this update on Sunday -- my day for doing extra nice things for other people -- and one of the best things I can do for fellow Kindle authors is recommend this software.

Hi eibhlin and thank you for taking the time to submit a full review, I'm sure it's helpful for other Kindle publishers to hear it from an established author.

BTW, we are planning to release an upgrade this coming week that will enable users to produce a list of tags from any given search with just a click of the button. Stay tuned...

Mark

Hi Mark! I have been waiting for this product since your first mention of it a few months back!

As you know there are similar products out there on the market selling for $97 as of now that may only have 1 extra feature yours does not but your also has a few awesome features they do not have either.

My problem is... I have the first software built on the same platform called Kindle Answers. I already left my review on that so as you know I absolutely LOVE IT! But yahoo made an update over 2 months ago making some of the features that I specifically purchased the product for, not work anymore.

I know this is not the place for support issues but it has been 2 months and I have sent numerous email simply asking if you guys are working on a fix or an update because for me the product has not been used since that was the main feature I used.

This raises a concern for me as far as credibility and customer support. If you can please tell me..... a paying customer.... will you be fixing your past product when they no longer work? If not, how can you expect us to honestly feel good about purchasing something else ... regardless of how effective and useful it is?

Please make me a believer again. I want this product bad as I am all over the kindle marketplace right now. But I cannot purchase in good faith with the history of not answering support or fixing a non working product or even replying in over 2 months!

That being said I have no doubts whatsoever that this product works exactly as stated which is why I WILL purchase... I just need to know you care about your customers!

Hi Milenimj - Thanks for your kind words. Rest assured, we do want happy customers and if you read the comments above, you will see we have gone the extra mile to do so.

We switched domains a few months back (to Software 4 Profits) and unfortunately some emails went awol as a result. Plus I discovered only a couple of days ago that our contact form was also not working. Grrgh.

Anyway, we are on the case and keen to solve all outstanding issues. I would therefore ask you to email me at mark@software4profits.com and tell what the issues are with Kindle Answers in relation to changes at Yahoo.
Thank you.

Kindle Mining is the real deal - see the unsolicited review just above. And an upgrade to export tags easily is hopefully coming this week.

In summary, you can most definitely buy with confidence! Mark

I've downloaded and tried the new tag feature. I love how I can organize and save tags that people are using on related books. I'll use this to add better tags to my own books, but also when I'm planning new books. Keywords (as tags) tell me the phrases to include, and perhaps some topics to focus on.

From my viewpoint, people tag a book for one of two reasons:

1. SEO benefits, of course. So, some tags only indicate what the author (or his friends) thought were important phrases to help the book's popularity.

2. Phrases readers thought important, and perhaps what they were looking for when they bought that book. They add a tag so other readers will find that particular book, when they're searching.

The latter is the most useful kind of keyword to know about. It not only tells me what people consider important in a book, but what they might be searching for at websites, as well. As a supplement to the keywords lists provided by Google's tools, etc., this can be helpful when planning a book.

I was delighted with Kindle Mining before. This upgrade makes this software even more valuable, whether you've already published books or you're planning new ones.
