    Hi

    I wonder, if I publish a kindle ebook and put clickable links at the last page to my website,
    a) does google find these links
    b) does it help the serps of the linked website to rank better

    Any ideas?
    Eric

    I am afraid that google won't be able to find those links. The look inside feature on amazon only shows the first pages of your book, and even if you put the link toyour website on the first page, google won't be able to read it because, as far as I know, this feature runs as a javascript inside your browser.

    Yes, I don't think so either, only when you publish your book as pdf and make it available to google bots it will be crawled.

    Nevertheless, think that those links can get some direct traffic to your site on the long run because, after all, most people don't want serps, they want traffic, right? :)

    Content on Kindle ebook is private and only available for those who purchased that ebook. Therefore those content is not public, which mean they cannot be crawled by any search engine, so it doesn't help improving ranking.

    before your questions .

    Amazon will ban your account if you place huge amount of links in your ebook on kindle as it is against their TOS .

    Now your questions .
    No there won't be any benefit , as they are not indexed .

    On the reverse side of things it adds some diversity to your links and for GA users it will show google that you have more content in a NEW PLACE. (obviously they aren't scanning books but the referer will show up when clicked)
