Amazon Keyword Selection
Amazon KDP doesn't have a paid advertisement program for non-Select/KU books. They suggest using keywords to get your book noticed. Here's some info about keyword selection.
All general Amazon KDP books are allowed two main categories and seven browse keywords for each book.
Careful selection of the categories and keywords can get the book into several very specific sub-categories. Look for words that appear in two subcategories and on more than one category list.
Here is the Amazon keyword list for Romance:
The other categories and keywords on Amazon KDP can be found here: Amazon Browse Categories.
Here's a bit more information about Amazon Best Sellers Rank.
You can see your categories below your book listing under "Look for similar items by category."
Once you've defined your Amazon keywords, try using them on other platforms like ARe, Smashwords, Adwords and even YouTube video tagging.
