Google Books Partner Programme enables publishers to promote their books on Google. Google scans the full text of participating publishers' titles so that Google users can see books that match the topics on which they are searching. When a user clicks on a book search result, they're taken to a Google-hosted web page displaying a scanned image of the relevant page from the book. Each page also contains multiple 'Buy This Book' links, allowing users to purchase the book from online retailers.
We may also show contextually-targeted Google AdWords ads on these pages. Publishers will receive a share of the revenue generated from ads appearing on their content.
There are many benefits to participating in Google Book Search. As a Google Book Search publisher, you can:
- Promote your book for free on Google
- Increase book sales at traditional and online book retailers
- Expand your reach to targeted customers
We're very interested in hearing your thoughts about this programme. Please feel free to send us any questions or comments you may have.
