A Really Simple Guide to BotsWant a Really Simple Guide to Bots? 

Our Guide to Bots pdf has been downloaded loads of times so we decided to turn it into a book for downloading on Kindle via Amazon’s numerous sites.

Why Use Amazon to Promote Bots?

Simple. Loads of people start with Amazon when searching for information. They realise that Amazon is a huge database of information and that if they want a Guide to Bots this is a good place to start.

It’s not that Google isn’t good .. it’s the Gold Standard for search. But if a book is loaded into Amazon it is there before it can be listed on Google. And of course if people find what they need on Amazon they don’t even search on Google.

So if you want your copy of A Really Simple Guide to Bots just follow the link and grab a copy from Amazon Kindle.
