Today, let’s talk about the secret strategy that many publishers don’t want you to know because they are afraid, and do you know why? They don’t want you stealing their precious keywords!
I have been using this strategy for some time, and it’s a great way to steal the keywords (book titles) from other publishers. As you may already know, searching for keywords is a time-consuming process. So it’s smarter to let others do the hard work, and we just come in and grab what they found.
Let’s [STEAL] Kindle Keywords and Make Money! [Video Guide]
Quick Insight About Stealing Kindle Keywords
STEP 1) Head over to Amazon, write on the search bar “2 manuscripts” or ” 3 manuscripts” or more, and select Kindle store.
STEP 2) Analyze the book titles, covers, descriptions for keywords. Hint, most of these books belong to publishers. If these keywords were profitable for them, then most likely it will be for you.
STEP 3) Write down all the keyword you can find on a notepad. Once you have about one-hundred or more search terms, then analyze their profitability and competitiveness.

What Are The Kindle Publishing Tools You need?
1 – First things first, head over to Amazon.
2 – I suggest you also have KDSpy installed. This tool helps you analyze keywords blazing fast. For more information about KDSpy, click here.
STEP 1) Search On Amazon
A few years ago, a famous course taught publishers to use the word “manuscripts” to describe their bundles – this is when you combine two or more books and sell them as a single unit at a higher price.
For this reason, many publishers still use this term nowadays. Often you will see something similar to:
- Yoga 2 Manuscripts: Yoga Poses + Yoga For Beginners
- Keto 3 Manuscripts: 50 Keto Diet Recipes + 40 Keto Meal Prep Recipes + 50 Day Keto Meal Plan
Just write “2 manuscripts” or “3…8 manuscripts” on the Amazon search bar. Also, make sure to select the Kindle store. Example:
NOTE: This strategy is great when you are clueless about the niche you’d like to get in.
STEP 2) Analyze The Books
After your initial search, you will notice most books listed belong to publishers.
How To Find Kindle Keywords?
Look at the book titles and write down all the keywords found there. Here are the search terms I found in the first book:
- Narcissistic Parents
- Adult children
- Narcissistic Mothers
- Narcissistic fathers
- Narcissistic Parent
I immediately have five potentially profitable keywords. I write them down on a notepad for later analysis. You should do the same with your research.
Now let’s rinse and repeat the same process for the second book.
- Weight loss mastery
- Weight loss hypnosis
- Meditation for women
You can easily repeat the same process until you have hundreds of keywords. Furthermore, you can do the same thing for “3, 4… 8 manuscripts”. Example of 3 manuscripts search:
- Python programming
- Python programming for beginners
- Python programming for intermediates
- Python programming for advanced
However, you can still find more Kindle keywords by looking deeper into each book’s details.
Analyze Book Covers For Kindle Keywords
Click on one of the books you’d like to analyze further. In my case, I am going to check the Python book cover. If you can’t easily see the book cover keywords, then click on it and look inside.
In this case, we don’t have new Kindle keywords here. We already found these keywords prior. However, sometimes you may find newer ones by analyzing a book cover.
Analyze Book Tags For Kindle Keywords
Go back to the book and scroll down until you can see the tags. Here are a few keywords that sound good:
- Learn python
- Python book for beginners (I combined python + book for beginners found on the tag list)
- trying to learn python (combined trying to learn + python)
- Easy to read python book
As you may see, you can combine several tags to get a searchable keyword.
Analyze Book Description For Kindle Keywords
You may also analyze the book description for more keywords. Here’s an example:
Perhaps not the best example, since we found the same keywords as before. But I guess you get the idea. You can apply this strategy to other Kindle books and find newer keywords.
Analyze Author’s Page For Kindle Keywords
You can also check the author’s page and see the other published books—a great way to find related Kindle keywords quickly. Just search for the author’s name and open it on a new tab. Example:
Once again, you can analyze the listed book covers searching for new keywords. You may also click on each one of them and check their description, tags, etc. Let’s check another author’s page:
Just look at the vast number of books belonging to this publisher, crazy! I bet I can easily find a good list of profitable keywords in the same niche here. The best part is I didn’t have to spend my whole day searching for them. Instead, I am using other publishers’ work to my advantage.
Furthermore, you can also see what you should do as a successful publisher. In other words, you shouldn’t publish books all over the place. Instead, focus on a single niche and dominate it with your books.
STEP 3) Kindle Keyword Research
At this point, you should have at least one-hundred keywords before you analyze their profitability and competitiveness. Afterward, you want to examine each one of these keywords. Let’s quickly analyze “Python programming for beginners.” I click on KDSpy to get more intel.
TEST #1: Profitability
You want to look at the sales rank from the first six books and see if you have at least four books ranking below 100.000. In this case, we don’t have, and therefore, this keyword isn’t profitable. I wouldn’t waste more time analyzing its competition etc. But for a better understanding, let’s examine the rest.
TEST #2: Competitiveness
In the first six results, you want to see books with a low review count. Usually, I like to see books with 50 or fewer reviews. Meaning, these books probably belong to publishers. Here we have a few books like this.
For this reason, the competition for this keyword isn’t tough. If I decided to publish a book here, probably I could rank it on the first top results. I would try to outrank my competition by producing a higher quality cover, content, or perhaps by providing a different approach to this title. You always want to try to outsmart your competitors. For this, analyze their books and see where you can beat them.
One of the essential parts is knowing how to write a detailed outline to later send to your ghostwriters. If you want to learn more about this process, then read my other post here. However, the problem is “Python programming for beginners” isn’t profitable. I definitely wouldn’t waste my time publishing a book here. I probably wouldn’t see my investment return.
You have several ways to analyze the profitability and competitiveness of a keyword. However, this is one of the easiest ways. You should rinse and repeat the same tests for all the keywords you found before.
At this point, you have a good idea of how to find Kindle keywords. This strategy is fantastic and a great way to get lazy and rob the hard work from other publishers. Why spend countless hours searching for keywords when other publishers already did this work for you.
