First, note that there are two different meanings of "preview":
To choose to make the full version of your book available as HTML when you publish, go to the Generations Settings page for your book.
You can choose from the following options:
No web page
Just the sample
The full book
The last option makes the most content available in Google, which means you should get more search engine love, but note that this means your book is not "paywalled".
(Don't forget that on Leanpub people can still choose to pay you even if your book is available for free! Read more about our "variable pricing" model here.)
For an example of what this looks like, see https://leanpub.com/markua/read ... This is what you should find as the top result if you Google for "markua spec".
Finally, note that when someone buys your book they can read it as PDF and EPUB or on Leanpub (assuming you generated it using Leanpub). The "on Leanpub" thing is basically a "read the EPUB in the browser" feature, which is different than the HTML version that we generate above. It uses "pages" and pretends to look like an ebook, instead of the sample HTML version which is one big huge scrolling page...
