Books Markup

Book actions make Google Search an entry point for discovering books and authors, enabling Search users to quickly buy the books that they find directly from Search results. As a provider of e-books, you can provide a feed of data to Google using the structured data schema below.

Use cases

The user’s query can indicate an intent to find a book, such as a book title, like The Catcher in the Rye, or the books of J.D. Salinger. For relevant queries, we might show a Knowledge Graph card for the book. Read more about managing your Knowledge Graph data. Read actions, which are incorporated into the cards, display options for acquiring the book. Through links you provide, read actions send users directly from the Knowledge Graph card to a book page on your site or app.
