How To Get An Apple Books Series Page:
Step 1: Check that you meet the criteria
To jump right into things, it’s important to note that series pages are automatically populated by Apple as long as your:
- Metadata is 100% accurate, and
- You have at least 2 books in your series.
What this means is that Apple’s tech is able to grab additional books associated with your series through the information that you provided at the time of publishing with them.
Step 2: Log into iTunes Connect
You can check on the metadata of your books by logging into iTunes Connect. From the dashboard, select “My Books” and then choose the titles you need to review. The metadata to double check here would be anything related to a series – such as series name or the number your book is within the series.
Step 3: Review Your Metadata
Once your metadata is double-checked and all series information is updated, books within one series should be grouped together immediately. Now all you need to do is search Apple Books for one of the titles within your series, click on said title, and scroll down to “Other Books in This Series”.
If book information was entered properly, Books 2, 3, 4, etc. should be listed accurately under “Other Books in This Series”.
Step 4: Find your Series Page URL
As an author, you likely want to grab a Series Page URL for sharing on social media or promotional websites. The minimum number of books you need to generate this Series Page URL is two. If all of your metadata is accurately entered, your “See All” link will populate.
You can right click that “See All” button to copy the link to your series page.
There you go! You can now share your series page link – but please note that this link will send readers to the Apple Books app, versus webpage.
Seeing some inaccurate information or missing books from your series? Go back, check that metadata, and then reach out to Apple Books’ contact information if you’re not seeing anything wrong from your end. This is an incredibly helpful article for double-checking you’ve set up your series properly.
