Microsoft has recently started running anti-Chromebook ads. We thought the ads were unusual, and out of nowhere. Now, it seems like Microsoft realized Chromebooks were eating into consumer sales of Windows 8 laptops and was trying to weaken sales.
Amazon best books of 2017 so far – a set of rankings curated by Amazon editors – the mid-year version of the popular list of Amazon’s Best Books of the Year. The lists include titles featured as the Best Books of the Month, as well as worthwhile new releases.
I am a Part of one of the top 6 Amazon companies in the world. We are selling in com, de, and uk and our feedback rates are: com 1 out of 7, uk 1 out of 5.5, fr 1 out of 6.5 and de 1 out of 11. maybe that helps to interpret the feedbacks better 🙂
There’s plenty of cross-border trading going on, but still many who are sticking to just one marketplace (or using separate accounts to sell on each). 46% of the 500 biggest sellers in Europe get all their feedback from only one marketplace (51% last year).
I was wondering if there was any archive that you knew about wherein Amazon sales rank records are publicly stored. It would be quite the handy resource to look up how long a book stayed at certain ranks in order to make general inferences about sales, but my google-fu came up weak.
It would be interesting to see Amazon’s own accounts to see how they rank against the rest of us… even if you list them with an asterisk… would they take the top four spots or is there a top seller 3rd party that does better than the host?
The editors read hundreds of books per year trying to pick the most interesting titles. They select the best books of each month, which are naturally taken into consideration when compiling two main lists: in June and December.

In every other regard, the best laptop deals are comprised of notebooks unencumbered by towering price tags. Wherever you happen to reside, at least in the United States, we don’t want to disappoint our readers on the prowl for sweet, sweet savings.
Recent sales alone are not all that’s taken into account. Amazon also has predictive features built into the Bestsellers Rank, which are likely to be based on historical data of a product. This is how a newly released book can have a higher ranking than a book released three years ago, even when the latter has more cumulative sales- Amazon can predict that the new release will overtake that book in a given period of time.
I agree that’s a big concern, but it’s worth taking into account the volume that these sellers do. hippo books got 131,628 feedback in the past 12 months so probably had well in excess of a million orders. If they got 99.9% of the orders right, which would be fantastic, that would still be 1,000 orders they got wrong. I don’t think 30 complaints on the BBB is a lot for a business doing that volume of sales.
For example, SellBrite automatically keeps inventory for your Amazon store, eBay store and Etsy store all synced up so that you’re never showing duplicate products. You can also manage multiple stores on the same channel (if you have two Amazon accounts, for example). You can learn more about specific features on their website.
Specifically, it has sold more than twice as many Echo devices here in the U.S., compared with Prime Day 2016, and more than three times as many worldwide. Insiders at the company, according to one source, say that Echo devices are selling at a rate of “thousands per minute” at the moment. Echo Dot appears likely to sell out first, the source added, although there has been unexpectedly high interest in all of the Alexa-powered products.
The popular non-tech items to make it to the top 10 are books. Australian author Scott Pape’s The Barefoot Investor comes in at number seven and Jamie Oliver’s 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food ranks as the eighth best-selling product in Australia.
Amazon’s not interested in its products gaining a spot at the top of the best-seller list because it makes tons of money from them. The company typically sells its devices at-cost, or even at a loss. The bigger picture is that Amazon uses its products as a catalyst for selling more items on its website, and for hooking users into its ecosystem.
“The scale is very accurate. I stepped on and off multiple times, and always got the same number. Then I put on a light jacket, stepped on again, and it was up .6 pounds. Perfect!” – Elizabeth, Amazon reviewer
With this in mind, let’s take a look at what we should understand by this ranking. As mentioned above, this Bestsellers Rank is available for most products available on Amazon, but I’ll explain this topic mainly using books as a case in point.

A recent report put out by RBC Capital estimates that there will be an installed-base of 128 million Alexa-powered devices (like the Echo speaker and Echo Dot) by 2020, and that they’ll become a $10 billion business that year. Those estimates are based on the assumption that Alexa-powered devices will increase spending by 5% to 15% for each Amazon customer.

“I bought this in December 2013 and I use it daily as the extra storage for my music and photos in my phone (currently an Xperia Z5C). No performance issues at all. I do really recommend this micro SD card.” – Paco Hernandez, Amazon reviewer
“How does this tablet rank against the competition? There are really only two other tablets in its class currently: the Google Nexus 7 and the just-announced Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display.” – NF, Amazon reviewer

Here are the top 500 sellers on the Amazon.es marketplace. The feedback shown is only that received from sales on the Spanish marketplace. The feedback data will vary from that in the global list above, for merchants selling to other European marketplaces using the same account.

Has there ever been a better time to be a gamer? 2017 was an incredible year for the video game industry, almost across the board. Do you even remember the kind of shape Nintendo was in this time last year? Things were looking very, very bad on the back of the company’s enormous Wii U flop, and now Nintendo makes the hottest video game console on the planet. Of course, PlayStation and Xbox fans had plenty to enjoy in 2017 as well, as some of the best games in recent history were released last year. Amazon just shared its list of the best-selling video games of 2017 across all platforms — have you played them all? Check out the full list at this link, or you can see the top 10 best-selling games below.
As documentary filmmakers who have published both DVDs and books, my in-laws have experienced Amazon ranking firsthand. They informed me that my book had likely been assigned a number though it was only currently available for pre-order, but the numbers changed all the time, so I might as well wait to look. I could arguably head upstairs to my laptop and get a preliminary sense of the book’s standing immediately, but what was the point?
The Amazon Echo is technically a Bluetooth speaker, but you wouldn’t buy one just to play music. You can ask for the weather, control smart lights, search the web, order from Alexa Deals (and save a lot sometimes by doing so), as well as thousands of other “skills.”
