Amazon Now Has a Character Limit on Keywords

Short post today but I figured this would be a good thing to know if you're in the self-publishing business.

If you've been in the self-publishing game for a while, you've probably mastered the art of stretching your seven keywords allotted by Amazon and you've also probably been wondering when Amazon would put an end to the loophole of "Young adult high school romance teen novel" as one keyword. That time has come.

Amazon finally caught on to our game and imposed a 200 character limit on their keyword box. Granted, that's still 100 more keywords than Barnes and Noble's Nookpress allows but it's still a limitation that should be noted and all the more reason to pay close attention and use the best targeted keywords possible.
