In terms of hardware, the Nintendo Switch was Amazon’s best-selling video game console — Switch consoles with gray Joy-Cons outsold those with neon Joy-Cons. The retailer’s best-selling accessory was the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller.
What this also means is that a book that’s ranked 800,000 can see it’s rankings skyrocket to 200,000 just with a couple of sales. As you move up the ladder, however, Amazon’s complex algorithm kicks in soon thereafter making it harder for you to break through the 100,000 milestone, and even harder to get past 10,000. This is because these higher rated products have historical data to back them up, so a lull in sales for them won’t result in as dramatic a drop in rankings as it would for a new product with less data to draw on. In all, the ranking seems to be somewhat logarithmic.
Here are the top five products in every major category that we found at the time of writing. Check back regularly as we’ll continue to update this list with new best-sellers (just maybe not as often as Amazon does!).

For comparison’s sake, Amazon Prime Day 2016 had led to a 3x increase in Amazon device sales, including a 2.5x increase in U.S. sales for its Echo speaker. It seems we’re on track to surpass those increases this year.
Another thing is that even though their seller feedback rating might be stellar, you will see if you read back in their 40/50 feedbacks per day that negative feedback gets buries almost instantly (and funny…most the positive feedback after negative feedback will take a point or two of the negative feedback proceeding it and comment in the positive on those points.
As mentioned, all that counts is the number of sales relative to other products within the same category. Amazon splits ‘paid’ and ‘free’ books into separate categories, so these act as sub-sub categories, in turn having their own bestsellers rank, which seems to be ranked using the same (or very similar) algorithm to paid bestseller ranks.

Free Downloaded ebooks do NOT count equally as a paid sale. They may have a loooong time ago when the Kindle Slect program first started but for at least the last year or longer even a free giveaway downloaded only counts for about one tenth of a paid sale in overall/sub-category rankings.
&field-brandtextbin= is another URL string you’ll want to be familiar with. It’s what tells Amazon to filter your search by a brand name. Since many customers already know what brand they want, you may be able to use this query for tracking and SEO purposes.

Chromecast’s sales success does suggest that mainstream users aren’t too concerned about the lack of streaming options—to date, only two non-Google services, Netflix and Hulu, work directly with Chromecast—or the wait for more apps to emerge. At least not yet.
The only title that’s in the top 5 both in print and Kindle is The Handmaid’s Tale, a dystopian novel from Margaret Atwood, first published in 1985. The book is set in the near future, in a militarized society where women are brutally subjugated.

Amazon Japan’s seller directory only lists “top sellers” rather than all sellers. The same is true for the directories of book sellers in China and India. Amazon’s definition of top sellers is not known, so there might be sellers on Amazon Japan, or who only sell books in India or China, with higher feedback than those shown above.
Midyear sales figures for the video game industry show two things — the staying power of hot holiday sellers and which spring releases have found a loyal audience. While the positions shift (and many titles fall off the charts) once the holiday months arrive, they’re a good barometer of publisher health.

So, want to find out which games made it into the Top 10? Read on to check out Amazon’s roundup. But note that Amazon’s data comes solely from its own sales data. Games purchased digitally on consoles or at other retail outlets like GameStop, are not factored into the data. The year’s most popular games based on overall sales data, in other words, might be different.
Despite White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders’ efforts to downplay the book as “trashy tabloid fiction,” the scandal of Fire and Fury’s contents continues to intensify. On Thursday morning, Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey revealed that Trump’s lawyers have “demanded” an apology from Wolff as well as a halt on publication.
Is there a way to rank top US sellers within each marketplace – UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, India, Japan and China? I am willing to query on my own, I just do not know where to start. Thanks!
This laptop has everything that most people could ever want. It has a full-HD, 1080p screen, an incredible Intel i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 750 GB hard drive. This computer was built for gaming, as evidenced by the powerful graphics processor and, basically, across the board, top-of-the-line components. And not only are its’ components top-notch, it also won a prestigious reddot 2012 design award. It also has nearly 20 customer reviews (at the time of this writing), and a nearly perfect average review score. This is even more impressive due to the fact that this laptop is meant to appeal to computer gamers, who are notoriously among the most difficult to please.

Henry Holt and Co., the publisher, ramped up its rollout in the wake of the Guardian leak, at which point details of the book continued to surface online. It was reported later on Wednesday that Fire and Fury also included claims that Trump was “befuddled” by his election victory in November 2016, that political ally Rupert Murdoch once called Trump a “f—ing idiot,” and that Melania Trump cried when her husband was elected president. (The First Lady and the White House both denied the latter allegation, which was first revealed in an excerpt printed by New York Magazine.)
Also known as ‘sales rank’, Amazon ranks products on an hourly basis according to how much time has elapsed since one was last sold. So if an item has just been sold, it’ll have a pretty high ranking, as opposed to something that’s been languishing for that whole hour.
