Any industry person can tell you these lists have their problems. There’s a barely concealed editorial bias. Bookscan, the database that tabulates book sales, inexplicably doesn’t include Amazon’s ebook sales. There’s even the possibility of manipulation, as outlined in a 2013 Wall Street Journal article called “The Mystery of the Book Sales Spike.” Still, they remain relatively hard to crack. In most cases, your book not only has to be good enough for a legitimate publisher to publish it, but you have to outsell all the other books out there, past and present, even if you’re paying for it out of your pocket. We’ve had clients sell close to 10,000 copies in a single week and miss landing on these charts.
Anti-North Korean protesters push against police as a ferry carrying a North Korean art troupe for the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games approaches the port of Mukho in Donghae. Around 120 North Korean art performers in matching red coats and fur hats left for the South, its state media said on February 6, the latest in the flurry of cross-border exchanges in the run-up to the Pyeongchang Olympics.
The two-month-old Chromecast currently tops the charts for every Amazon subcategory it’s listed in, including digital media devices, streaming media players and televisions and video. The next most popular TV streaming devices in the general electronics rankings are the Apple TV (at #7) and the Roku 3 (at #8).
Selling on Amazon doesn’t have to be intimidating, even if you’re a new seller. It’s the largest e-Commerce platform in the world, and now you have all the tools you need to make the most of it. But in the end, nothing beats getting your hands dirty and actually putting these Amazon ranking hacks to work!
Just the other day, we were trying to sketch out the kind of laptop that most people could buy and be happy with. Well, it appears Acer beat us to the punch, delivering exactly what we were looking for—and for way less money than we expected.
Woot via Amazon offers the refurbished HP 15-ba018ds AMD A6 2GHz 15.6″ Touchscreen Laptop in Black for $349.99 with free shipping. That’s $586 off the original retail price and the lowest price we could find.

Nintendo dominated Amazon’s top 10 best-selling video games with seven entries. Coming in at second is the racing video game “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,” and “Breath of the Wild” for the Nintendo Switch comes in at third. The Wii U version of the Zelda video game took the 10th place. Other Nintendo-published video games in the top 10 list are “Pokemon Ultra Sun,” “Pokemon Ultra Moon,” and “Splatoon 2.” “Call of Duty: World War II” for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One also made it to the list, as well as the PS4-exclusive video game “Horizon Zero Dawn.”
It gets better from there, too: the RAM is upgradeable to 32GB, meaning for just over $100 you can turn this thing into a heavy-hitting machine that can handle multi-tasking with ease. It’s also got two USB 3.0 ports and a USB-C connector for fast data transfer, an optical drive if you need one of those, and fast 802.11ac wireless.
For a few months already in a row – ASUS X551MAV-EB01-B Notebook is at the top of this list. And there is no surprise for that. Take in consideration price (see bellow) and performance this model is among my favourite this season.
Absolutely, it will overrate some and underrate others. However, it is comprehensive and transparent and, I believe, the best possible without making a lot of shaky assumptions on average feedback rates, sales prices etc. etc. So I prefer to keep it simple, and be upfront about the source of the data and its shortcomings.
You don’t have to go far down the list to find merchants who have really embraced selling on multiple marketplaces across Europe. But three of the highest-placed cross-border merchants are not European companies – JEDirect are from the US, while Anker (with two European accounts) and Sunvalley are both Hong Kong-based companies.
The smart speaker had first gone on sale in late 2014 to Prime members, before becoming generally available in June 2015. Assuming CIRP’s figure (8.2 million) is ballpark correct, it would have represented a 60 percent increase from the 5.1 million CIRP calculated in November.
Our top pick this year, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness is a sweeping yet intimate story, one that packs heartbreak, humor, love and acceptance—and a memorable cast of characters—into a novel that will stick with readers for a very long time.
I noticed that Amazon more specifically categorized Semi-Charmed Life as a book about blogging, which struck me as sort of funny because my novel’s main character Beatrice Bernstein is a blogger, but the novel is not exactly Blogging For Dummies. But what I care? I was No. 3 among upcoming blogging books! (I decided they should create even more specific lists like books featuring bloggers, written by Brooklyn-based journalists with cats named Mina and Waldo — I’d have to be No. 1 in that!)
The Switch title, launching pretty late in the game on October 27, is currently surpassing Amazon sales of many of 2017’s biggest money-makers, including Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2 and Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy.
While the Amazon Best Sellers list is a good indicator of how well a product is selling overall, it doesn’t always indicate how well an item is selling among other similar items. Category and subcategory best seller lists were created to highlight an item’s rank in the categories or subcategories where it really stands out.
Walker says she’s checked it out a couple times, but will probably stop if a downward trend begins. As a veteran, she knows a thing or two about self-preservation. She and several other writers have instructed me, quite rightly, to stay sane by focusing on the next book instead of tracking this one. I plan to take their advice. Eventually.
Amazon’s list of its best sellers of 2017 is dominated by Nintendo, which took seven of the top ten slots, according to Amazon. Those games were flanked by another long-time gaming franchise in Call of Duty. And Sony was able to find its way into the Top 10 with Horizon Zero Dawn, one of the year’s most compelling—and good-looking—games.
“While this e-reader isn’t perfect, it’s pretty darned close. The backlighting was what convinced me I needed this upgrade to my perfectly serviceable, but aging, basic Nook. Among the other improvements were the higher resolution, which was noticeable but not awe-inspiring, the larger screen, and the integration into the Amazon marketplace. ” – zmonkey, Amazon reviewer
“Overall, it’s not necessarily something sellers don’t want to pay attention to but it’s not something we recommend they should focus on too much. In our opinion, sellers should play more attention to moving up in the SERP than a product’s BSR.”
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.”
