MyBookTable Bookstore by Author Media

A WordPress Bookstore Plugin to help authors boost book sales on sites like Amazon and Apple iBooks with great-looking book pages.

Forget everything you think you know about selling your book online. We’re changing it. You won’t need SSL certificates, shopping carts, or piles of books in your basement. All you’ll need is a WordPress website. Oh, and a book.

MyBookTable allows you to have your own bookstore that links to online bookstores where visitors can buy the book.

Advanced Search Engine Optimization

  • A Search-Optimized Page for Each Book Having a search-optimized book page may seem small, but this option makes a huge difference in how many people find your book. Most authors cram all their books onto one page. With so many titles per page, no one book can rank or get coveted Google juice. MyBookTable allows you to create a page for each book, as well as a page with all books listed, so you get the best of both worlds. Edit one and it updates the other. This gives you a much better chance of ranking higher when someone searches for one of your titles.

  • Native SEO Controls If you don’t currently use an SEO plugin, MyBookTable provides meta titles and descriptions as if you did, complete with optimized defaults in case you don’t want to bother optimizing it yourself.

  • Advanced SEO Integration MyBookTable integrates with popular SEO plugins like WordPress SEO by Yoast and Scribe SEO. If you use one of these plugins, you get full access to their power.

  • Semantic Markup and OpenGraph MyBookTable has built-in semantic markup, giving you the edge on search engines like Google and social networks like Facebook. We do all the heavy lifting for you, so your pages are naturally searchable. This should improve Search Engine Optimization and social optimization.

GoodReads Integration & Book Reviews

MyBookTable has deep integration with the world’s most popular social network for readers. MBT shows your GoodReads reviews, and it provides a button that allows users to add your book to their GoodReads BookShelf.

Built-In Tutorial Videos

MyBookTable has built-in tutorial videos showing you how to use the plugin for maximum effect.

Compatibility Mode

With thousands of WordPress themes in existence, we can’t guarantee that MBT will work with every theme. So we have created a compatibility mode that allows for maximum compatibility with your theme. MyBookTable integrates with all the major theme frameworks, including Genesis, Woo Canvas, most Elegant Themes, and many Theme Forest Themes. Thesis is the only framework known not to work.

Easy Shortcode Interface

MBT adds an icon to the WordPress WYSIWYG Editor that allows you to add MyBookTable shortcodes to your site with just a couple of clicks.

Built-in Breadcrumbs

We have added breadcrumbs, which will not only make your book pages easier to use for your visitors, but will also improve search engine optimization. These breadcrumbs are fully compatible with the Genesis or Woo Canvas breadcrumb systems.

GetNoticed! Theme Integration

MyBookTable can import books from Michael Hyatt's GetNoticed! theme. MyBookTable and GetNoticed! now work together seamlessly.

Book Widgets

MyBookTable gives you several cool book widgets. Including a featured book widget, genre widget, series widget, and more!
