Tag Exchanges

Tagging ebooks on Kindle is just another attempt to get noticed.  The theory is: the more tags you have, the more visibility you have in your genre/category.  There has been a pretty successful tag exchange running on Kindleboards for a while now.  Another has been created, this time for the Kindle store in the UK.  It's kind of a good idea to get stuck in now while it is all so new and shiny.  There are plenty of websites and places that take part in tag exchanges but Kindleboards has the best ones going.  :)

Just to note, tag exchanges are based on the themes/genres/categories of a book.  They in no way represent the quality of the book and as such are not similar to review exchanges.  Tagging is above board imo.  If you're interested in tagging, take a look at the following links:

  2. Exactly. Kindleboards is great for a lot of things but those tagging threads definitely work very well.
