Accelerating the Research Process with Web Pilot
Exploring Book Titles for Inspiration
The first feature we'll dive into is the ability to use Web Pilot to explore book titles and gather inspiration. Simply provide the Chat GPT with the URL of a relevant book page on Amazon, such as, for instance: "animal coloring books for adults", and request a list of the top 20 coloring book titles. Web Pilot will swiftly analyze the page and present you with an array of captivating book titles that have already found success in the market. You can ask it in table format to view the titles better. Let's take a look at an example using Chat GPT4 and Web Pilot:
Can you give me a list of the top 20 coloring book titles from this page? Add them in a table with review count
Web Pilot will then analyze the provided page and deliver the comprehensive list of book titles of the books in that page.
This feature is a goldmine for brainstorming ideas, visualizing the titles and other basic information in table format and start studying the market. It's a great starting point.
Extracting Keywords and Long-Tail Keywords
To further enhance your research, you can ask Web Pilot to provide you with the most used keywords and long-tail keywords from the page. Here's how you can do it:
1. In the Web Pilot interface, enter the command:
Please give me the most used keywords from titles and subtitles with number of occurrencies
and click Enter.
2. Web Pilot will extract the keywords related to the books from the page. In this example,. the keywords extracted indicate that the page primarily focuses on animals, relaxation and stress relief, featuring fun designs for adults. Additionally, it informs you about the most used keywords. 💡 Sometimes the plugins reads the entire page and not just titles and subtitles, so you will have to specify it in the prompt and exclude words like "Amazon", "Delivery", "Days", "Dates..", or they will appear in the table.
3. For a more in-depth analysis, ask Web Pilot to generate the most used long-tail keywords from the page. Enter the command:
Can you give me the most used long-tail keywords from the book titles and subtitles of this page? Keywords from minimum 2 words
and hit Enter.
4. Now you'll have a comprehensive list of long-tail keywords related to animal coloring books for adults, including variations such as stress relief, relaxing designs, Zen, mindfulness, and more. These keywords will be instrumental in refining your book title ideas and conducting further research on Amazon.
🚀 If you don't have GPT 4, you can simply select the entire content of the page in Chat GPT, (manually or copy-pasting it from other KDP chrome extensions), and ask GPT-3 to perform keyword density analysis in the titles.
Checking Title and Subtitle Length for KDP Requirements
Before working on title ideas (which will require a bit more keyword search), it's essential to ensure it complies with KDP's requirements. KDP specifies that the combination of your title and subtitle must be 200 characters or less. Ideally, shorter titles are preferable as they tend to grab attention more effectively. However, longer title can include more keywords and give more information to the potential buyer.
When working on your title, open a Google Drive Sheet, copy-paste title and subtitle and count the characters with the function =len(cell).
Make sure it's less than 198 characters, space included.
