ISBN doesn't show on google

I received an ISBN number however after i published my book the ISBN number doesnt connect with my book. Online search shows that the ISBN number is unknown for my Ebook (PDF). How long does it take for the search engines to retrieve and link my book title to my ISBN?


  • PDFs are not eligible for distribution; they can only be sold in the Lulu store. This is the reason you cannot find your ISBN as an ISBN's sole job is to enable distributors to find a book so that they can order a copy.


    As you have been given an ISBN I would suggest that, rather than waste it, you now create an epub using that same ISBN.

    Your epub can then be distributed to ebook retailers.
