KDP Category Browser – Quickly Find Amazon Book Categories

kdp category browser-quickly find kdp book categories

Welcome to my blog! In this blog post, I will talk about Kdp Category Browser.

kdp category browser is a free tool by kindle ranker that lets you find kdp book categories for your kindle ebooks and paperback books. All you need is to enter a keyword phrase or search term relevant to your book and click on the search button. And this tool will show you a list of relevant categories that you can use for your low and no content books.

This is a very useful tool as it saves time while finding browse categories, and I have personally used this tool when I first started with low content book publishing. Now, I use this tool along with the bookbolt category finder and tangent template’s category explorer.

How to Use Kdp Category Brower

Using the kdp category browser is very simple and you can use this in two ways.

Firstly, just visit: https://www.kindleranker.com/articles/kdp-category-browser/

On this page you will find this little search box as shown below:

Note: You can watch the video instead!

Method # 1

In the first method, you can enter any keyword or phrase related to your book into the search box above and hit enter. For example, I have typed the keyword “weight loss” into the kdp category browser and it is showing me the following kdp browser categories.

kdp categories for weight loss

As you can see in the above screenshot, the kdp category browser also displays a relevancy score for any given category.

In our weight loss example, the very first category is “health & fitness > diet & nutrition > weight loss”. It has a relevancy score of 57.74%. It means this is the most relevant kdp category when it comes to publishing a weight loss book or planner.

Okay, let’s find some more categories! This time I will type “gratitude journal” in the search and see what comes out.

And here we go…

gratitude journal kdp categories

As we can see, the kdp category browser is showing only one category, “juvenile nonfiction > language arts > journal writing”. And seems quite relevant too considering the fact that gratitude journals fall under the umbrella of Journal Writing!

So, in this way you can use this kdp category finder to find the most relevant categories for your low and no content books. This tool is equally helpful for categories for kindle ebooks as well.

Method # 2

In the second method, you need to go to the Amazon Best Seller page for books. Below is the direct link to the page:


On that page, you will see all book categories on the very left-hand side:

Next, click on any category under books and then click on the category to locate the sub-category under this main category. Like I have clicked on “Children Books” and there is a category named “Activities, Crafts & Games”.

Next, I took this sub-category (Activities, Crafts & Games) and pasted it into the kdp category browser to find more related categories…

So, by using these two methods, you can quickly find very relevant categories for your kdp paperback books or kindle ebooks.
